"Mom always told me there are two kinds of love in this world: the steady breeze, and the hurricane. Emerson Ray was my hurricane..."



Juliet McKenzie was an innocent eighteen-year-old when she spent the summer in Beachwood Bay-and fell head over heels in love with Emerson. Complicated, intense Emerson, the local bad boy. His blue eyes hid dark secrets, and just one touch could set Juliet ablaze. Their love was demanding and all-consuming, but when summer ended, tragedy tore them apart. Juliet swore she'd never go back, and she's kept that promise . . . until now.



Four years later, Juliet's done her best to rebuild the wreckage of her shattered life. She's got a great boyfriend, and a steady job planned after she graduates. Returning to Beachwood to pack up her family's beach house to prepare it for sale, Juliet is determined that nothing will stand in the way of her future. But one look from Emerson, and all her old desire comes flooding back. He let her go once, but this time, he's not giving up without a fight. And Emerson fights dirty.



A heartbreaking history. An unstoppable passion. Torn between her past and future, Juliet struggles to separate love from desire. But will they find a way to overcome their tragic secrets-together? And after so much damage has been done, can a love remain unbroken?

    This book will gut you emotionally, put you back together, and then do it all over again. I didn't want it to end. I literally was this close to tears reading it this morning. Fantastic story. I have a feeling there's a story to be told about Brit though ;-)

    Another book I had my eye one, it gave me the romance that I was searching for…Unrequited love… a love once known and now lost. How do you get something back that you so purposely destroyed? Juliet is on her way to face her past and has lots of questions. The plot never wavered in emotions. I loved reading each chapter, diving deeper into uncovering that heart-breaking moment. The plot is good at moving forward but also good at moving backward in the past to uncover the secret. The plot always had some bread trail to follow so never once was I ever confused.The love interest is the best part. Set in high school, meeting as strangers gaining a connections that is rare and loving, I felt these two pain. I desperately wanted to understand why the falling out. Why the anger and the sadness? When I got the end and the reason is finally told, there is nothing but love behind the action. It’s selfless and deserves much recognition.Unbroken is awesome story of finding love when you think its lost. The hope that is filled in the pages, yearns for the readers attention. Crafted beautifully, Unbroken is awesome.

    Great Story About Second Chances!!! Unbroken is the aptly named story of two broken people trying to pick up the pieces, to find what they had once thought was lost forever and about allowing yourself the right to love others along with giving someone else the chance to love you back. It's about lost love, that one true great love of your life that no others can compare to, wounded hearts and taking that one risk that's so far in the back of your mind that you're not even fully aware that it's there until you're pulling into Beachwood Bay after four long years. Juliet and Emerson met the summer before Juliet is going off to college. Her mom drags her to the small seaside town in order for their family to have one last summer together. Juliet's family is dysfunctional at best. Her dad is an alcoholic and professor wannabe who spends most of his time hanging with his rich sophisticated crowd, trying to keep up and spending money that he doesn't have. He's written one book years ago which he likes to talk about and is always telling people about his "new book" which he will never actually write. Juliet's mom is starved for affection which she never gets from her husband and when he does notice her it's to make fun of her while pretending to be joking. Juliet's sister cares only about bagging that rich husband and hanging out with her friends so Juliet isn't particularly thrilled to spend the whole summer with them but this will be the last summer before she's free to go to art school and start her new life over. On the way up they get into a minor accident and Emerson enters the picture.

    "I'm Emerson,' he calls. Then he smiles, a flash of something true and reckless, so darkly beautiful I feel my heart stop all over again. This is what they write stories about, I realize, as if from far away. All those books and movies and poems I've read, this is what they all were preparing me for, the day when a strange man smiles at me, and makes me forget who I am.

    Emerson has had an even harder time than Juliet. His dad ran out on them when he was young and his mom has battled with addiction for years leaving Emerson to practically raise his younger brother and sister. Eventually his mom just altogether abandons them and Emerson who wants nothing more than to get away from Beachwood Bay and to start his own life is stuck working several jobs to raise his siblings. He's damaged, he's his mother's son and eventually after hearing the whispers behind his back from those who live in his small town he starts to believe that he's no good, worthless and quits fighting to prove them wrong. So he drinks, he fights and he has a lot of sex but then one day a chance encounter out of the blue he meets Juliet and for once he starts to believe that maybe he is worthy, a good person after all. The two of them share their love during that summer and make plans together. They belong to one another and nothing can tear them apart and they live happily ever after. At least that was how it was meant to go but then tragedy strikes and on the worst day of Juliet's life their fledgling love is over.

    Four years later Juliet is trying to pick up the pieces, to get on with her life. She's almost finished with college: she's an accountant now and has a nice, safe and wonderful boyfriend but she has to go back to Beachwood Bay to take care of some business but once there can she deny the love and attraction she's always had for Emerson. Does she even want to? Does she dare to take another chance on the man who broke her heart after all she's got a nice boyfriend, a good life planned out but deep down there's only ever been one person for her and she's never been able to move on no matter how much she tries to convince herself that she has.

    Because I realize now, that's the way it works. That if you're lucky, you might get to fall in love so hard and so deep, that it changes you. That love seeps its way into every atom and molecule in your whole being, so that even if it's over, or the two of you are forced apart, you'll always carry the imprint of their soul with you, steady as a heartbeat. Forever. But you have to decide: give yourself up and surrender to a force far greater than you will ever understand, or turn and walk away-live the rest of your days safe on dray land, knowing that when it mattered most of all, you weren't brave enough to risk it. You weren't brave enough to love.

    This was a great story of love and second chances. Juliet and Emerson were both passionate and you can't help but feel their mutual love and attraction as you read each page. The side characters are all great additions that enhance the storyline. It was well written, had just the right mixture of angst and love, hope and despair along with some nice sexy scenes. I had a blast reading this book! Emerson and Juliet make a great couple and after you get over wanting to slap some sense into each of them you can't help but cheer them along as they rediscover the meaning of true love. I highly recommend this book along with the rest of the Beachwood Bay series. Each book works well as a stand alone novel, they're light, easy to read and just all around fun. Take a trip to Beachwood Bay, kick back, put your feet in the water and take a chance on finding love.....again

    Due to copy and paste, formatting has been lost.Unbroken is really a hard call. While I enjoyed it a lot, I don't really feel like there was much love connection in it. The smexy scenes were hot, hot! But the rest of it was just kind of meh. They don't ever seem to really talk. It seems like their relationship is built off of sex, to tell you the truth. I was disappointed by that. Even in the novella before, Untouched, it was mostly about the sex.Jules and Emerson were still the same people as before, which was a bit of a surprise. They were just older, more experienced, and less inclined to believe in happy endings. Juliet is stuck in a dead end "nice guy" type engagement, but she's strong as all get out. The only problem is that she doesn't know it, so she's trying to be exactly what they want her to be. Emerson is just doing his own thing, living a completely angst filled existence, and I guess he spent most of his time wanting her back, because that's all we ever see of him. I wish that there had been more character development for both of them.Don't get me wrong, I really liked the angst in this one-- I enjoy romantic angst. I just wish that it hadn't been all about the sex. I want a relationship to read about, you know? I also very much enjoyed Melody Grace's writing. She has a whole bunch of epic quotes that I highlighted on my kindle, and I just liked the read in general.All in all, Unbroken is a good new adult read, but for romance I like it to be more about talking/falling in love than sex all the time.Cover Talk: I think that this one is cute, and communicates the feel of the book pretty well. I like the double title treatment, and they look cute together, out in front of the ocean.
