Unbreak Me, by Julieanne Lynch is a sweet, entangling romance story. This novel was so simple in it’s design, yet it is so complex. Two broken people meet by chance and can’t seem to let each other go. After trying and failing many times, both Molly and Connor can’t seem to get their lives on track. Even though they have fallen madly in love with each other, it seems like the universe keeps trying to tear them apart.
Molly is a recovering alcoholic that just lost the one woman who seemed to care for her. She grew up not needing or wanting anyone, and that harsh lifestyle kept her in drugs, alcohol and other bad behaviors. She’s finally cleaned up her act, but it seems like ever since her caretaker passed away, she has slowly started to want to creep down the hill of using again. Her childhood was not easy, with her father hurting her, and her mother blaming her, Molly ran away at a young age. This has caused her to never really trust anyone, let alone open up to people, especially men. So when Connor walks into her life, she’s so closed off that the only thing she really wants to do is push him away before he gets too close.
Connor is the son of a very important man, and when he messes up big time at work, he feels like just ending it all. He’s tired of living in his father’s shadow and never feeling like his parents actually love him. That’s when he meets Molly, who is the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. Battling depression can be difficult on your own, but it can also be hard when you have a relationship to tend to. Connor has to figure out how to overcome his fears and emotions, while simultaneously helping Molly deal with hers.
The way that this couple meets is extraordinary, and beautiful in a way. At first they are sort of wary of each other, but once they get caught up in love, their passion burns like fire. They want to be together, but it seems like life keeps getting in the way. Emotions are running high, and they both need each other to break free from their individual pain. I thought this book was well thought out, well written, and heart wrenching. I absolutely adored this book, and even though it made me shed a tear (or two) it was well worth it! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. This book was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
