Unbreak My Heart Release Week Blitz!!
If you're Kate Evans, you keep your friend Rachel, bond with her kids, and bury your feelings for her husband. The fact that Shane's in the military and away for long periods helps-but when tragedy strikes, everything changes.
After Rachel, pregnant with her fourth child, dies in a car accident and the baby miraculously survives, Kate upends her entire life to share parenting duties. Then on the first anniversary of Rachel's death, Kate and Shane take comfort in each other in a night that they both soon regret.
Shane's been angry for a year, and now he feels guilty too - for sleeping with his wife's best friend and liking it . . . liking her. Kate's ability to read him like a book may have once sent Shane running, but their lives are forever entwined and they are growing closer.
Now with Shane deployed for seven months, Kate is on her own and struggling with being a single parent. Shane is loving and supportive from thousands of miles away, but his homecoming brings a betrayal Kate never saw coming. So Kate's only choice is to fight for the future she deserves - with or without Shane. . .
Everything in Shane Anderson's life gets turned upside down when he gets a frantic call from his wife's best friend telling him that his wife is gone, that she lost her life in a car accident. The news of losing the love of his life is almost more than he bare, and the reality that he is now a single parent to four children is beginning to set in, and he can't begin to fathom how is going to get through all of this on his own. That's when he turns to his wife's best friend for help, having her around is unsettling, and brings up feelings he thought he'd long since buried, but he knows that there is no one else that he can trust with the lives of his children. She steps right in and things start to fall into place, and it scares him because it all makes sense...too much sense, and it has him feelings things he knows he shouldn't, things that will change everything!
From the moment I cracked this book a powerful feeling settled over me, and I immediately knew I was about to embark on something truly special, something that was about to consume me and leave me raw and emotionally exhausted...in the best possible way! And true to my thought it did, the instant these two beautiful souls waltzed on the page I was completely captivated by them, and fully invested in every facet of their lives, I couldn't help but to be addicted to their story. I felt the intensity and passion behind every word, felt the sting of every disappointment, and struggled to keep the tears at bay the whole way through!! I have to say that this is BY FAR one of the best reads I have had the pleasure of settling down this year, and have wholeheartedly loved from start to finish!! Ms. Jacquelyn has written something truly remarkable here and I am certain that she will have no problem at all winning readers over with this one, it is one of those reads that will hit you deep down in your soul, and literally steal the breath from your lungs!!
Breathtakingly beautifully story that is sure to invade your soul and renew your faith in the power of true love!!
