“There is nothing in this world more powerful than the connection a person feels for another.”

Do you know that feeling when you open a book in a series and it is instantly like coming home? 

When you can’t help getting so absorbed in the story that you are sitting curled up on your couch with a dopey grin on your face because you missed everyone so much and it just feels right being back again? I’m pretty sure you do, but in case you don’t, I suggest you read this series!

I loved every single book so far and the short stories are always the icing on the cake. 

The same holds true for Unbreakable Stories: Rowe. As short as they are, you still get the whole package of fun, sweet and sexy times combined with some heart-eyes but also pensive moments. A few pages in and I already had to run off grabbing some tissues, but leave it to the authors to make me laugh through my tears only a second later.

Seeing how Rowe after going through a rough patch due to Mel’s death finds happiness again with Noah was aside from Devour my most anticipated story in this series. What I especially loved about Unbreakable Stories: Rowe was the way Noah finds his place in Rowe’s life by creating memories of their own, by making every day special, without forgetting about Mel and to see Rowe opening up to Noah. He picks up his life again and feels completely at ease with his feelings for him.

So, get ready for some good but also bittersweet memories…

“With each passing day, Rowe seemed a little more relaxed, a little more willing to laugh, and a little more playful, as if he were pulling his soul out from the shadow of his wife’s death to embrace living again. Mel was still an intricate part of their lives, but her memory more frequently brought smiles than tears.”

Some pranks only men can come up with…

The saying “In the true man there is a child hidden: it wanted to play” proved never to be truer!

Some hot man-on-man action…that makes you want to run off and take an ice bath. 😀

And some much-needed vacation…

…With the whole gang except for Ian and Hollis, with lots of fun inside and outside the bed and psst…you even get to see a Lucas being all easy-going and relaxed and that’s a sight to see or read in this case. Promise!

“They might be all crazy, but it was a good family to be a part of.”

Admittedly, I missed Ian and Hollis, but all of these short stories except for the first one take place after Devour, so they authors decided to be a bit careful about it. And of course, we will get their own short stories soon.

I never wished so hard it would already be summer! Highly recommended!imageedit_44_8150275859
