Unbreakable love was a classic story of how love conquers all! While angels have become a very popular topic to write about, Carling puts her on little twist on the story. Nate is put in Jennie’s life to protect her for a tragedy that is soon to come. While Angels have some pretty awesome perks Nate must follow many rules.
1. He can’t touch Jennie skin to skin.
2. He can’t reveal what he is.
3. He can't Fall in Love.
4. He can’t have pets.
5. He can’t keep evidence of past jobs.
…and the list goes

This would be a fun read while sitting on the beach. Jenny Townsend hasn't been very lucky in love, when Nate shows up, she is glad to have him as a friend because she isn't looking for a romance. Their is something special about Nate though and readers are going to have fun tagging along in this heart warming story that is a touch spiritual or some might say supernatural.

Does anyone else ever think of the Hokey Pokey when they are reading books? You know… “you put your right foot in, you take your right foot out…” No? Hmm.. ok, maybe I’m crazier than I thought I was. Anyways… these day, whenever I happen upon (or a publisher/author) sends me a new “paranormal romance” to read, the Hokey Pokey is the very first thing I think of.


Because originality is hard to find. (“You put an angel in, you take an angel out, throw in some stupid ass rule, and you shake it al

I absolutely loved Unbreakable Love by Angela Carling, and I think that other readers will become instant fans of this novel too. Unbreakable Love is a remarkable young adult paranormal romance novel, and I’d like to strongly recommend this novel to readers who are looking for a clean and tender paranormal love story.The friendship and romance between Jennie and Nate will take your breath away.

There are so many young adult series out right now. Almost every single nove

I am so happy that I had the opportunity to read this lovely book. It was full of surprises and mixed emotions and that's why I liked it so much. This is the second book written by Angela Carling that I read and I am not disappointed.

I have to start with something about the cover (which I don't like). When you see it, you may think the story is about teenagers, but it's not. Well, it is about teenagers, but it also has guardian angels in it. Nate is Jeannie's protector (aka her guardian angel) a

I am truly on the fence about this novel for a couple of reasons. I really enjoyed the story, and I found myself caring deeply about our main male character, Nate, but there were also a few moments that tended to get under my skin as well.

Here are the Pros:

1) I liked the idea behind the story - it's your typical guardian angel story, but with a Romeo & Juliet type twist. It's fun, entertaining, and filled with a love that teenage girls dream about

2) I LOVED Nate - He's charming and protectiv

I loved these characters. I think that was my favorite thing about this book, I really loved the characters, especially Jennie. Maybe it's because I kind of identified with her - choosing the wrong thing, even though you know you shouldn't.

And I loved Nate, given a job to do but tripping and falling over the girl in the process. And yeah, despite being a guardian angel he makes mistakes too. Don't we all?

But most of all I loved Celeste (and if you get your hands on this book, you'll understand

I really enjoyed reading this novel. Its a cute, quick, paranormal read. One thing i just want to mention is im absolutely in love with the cover of it! My only real complaint is that it was to short in my opinion, and felt a bit rushed. I couldn't really manage to get a good feel of the characters. The book is not very passionate in that steamy kinda way at all, so if your looking for that i would say def do not buy this book, But if your looking for a book about forbidden romance and what not ...more

I liked how different this book was. It took me a few chapters to fully catch on to what the author was portraying in the book. But once I caught on, this book was a good read.

Unbreakable Love was an interesting book. It was not my favorite book but it was most certainly not the worst one either. There were some things I really liked, somethings I thought were sweet, some things that I really didn’t like, and even some things I thought were a little cheesy. I guess all in all, my feelings are very iffy on it.

At the very beginning of the book, I could have sworn it was going to be a switching POV type of book where one chapter is Jennie and the next would be Nate, and

2.5/5 stars

While the story of Unbreakable Love was fairly interesting, I found it to be neither particularly engaging nor original. This in part stems from the writing style which I found to be a bit awkward and more middle grade than young adult. There were many instances in which Carling told the reader certain things rather than showing them, creating an environment in which I just couldn’t seem to connect emotionally with both the events of the book or the characters. Instead of a plot laced

You know it's a good book when I start out a review with a deep, relaxing breath.

And now I'm blushing. Does that cover make you blush? Yeah, just a bit, eh?

Unbreakable Love is a great Young Adult love story about a high school girl and the man who gets to protect her. Or should I say, her guardian angel? That would be more correct. Nate is the protecting angel assigned to keep watch over Jennie Townsend, your average Jane from Palm Springs, California. When Nate receives his assignment, he

Judging by the cover, I automatically thought this was a YA contemporary novel. However, this book actually has a really good blend of contemporary and paranormal. It explores the idea of guardian angels without going too crazy into the paranormal world, which I thought was something kind of new and refreshing. I suppose it made it a little more realistic, as if this actually could happen to you. So if paranormal seems a little far-fetched for you but you'd like to see what all the hype is about ...more

Carling has put together a really cute guardian angel love story. And, while there are many books out there dealing with the topic of angels, I personally haven’t seen very many dealing with the good guardian angel, but more so the bad fallen angel. This was a nice change, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching Nate and Jennie as they became intense friends. While the pacing of the novel was a little fast, and it made it difficult to gage the exact amount of time that passes within the novel, it’s cl ...more

This is a debut novel by Ms. Carling and I really enjoyed the storyline!

The writing style was different from what I am use to and the book was written like the author was telling a story. It was not necessarily from one character's point of view. It was interesting to read a book written this way, but I was not able to get in touch with the characters as much as I would have liked to.

The book starts off with Jennie going on yet another date set up by her BFF. She is tired of trying to be polite

This was a sweet, romantic and totally clean love story, which is something I really appreciated!

I’ve never been a fan of the narrative writing style in any book, I feel like it keeps people from getting to know the characters deeply and being able to fully connect with them. That was the case with this book as well. I felt like I didn’t get to know Jennie and Nate as much as I would have liked, which in turn, hindered me from getting too attached.

Although it took me awhile to get used to, and c
This was a sweet story. I was sort of confused at the beginning, because things were moving so fast. There was barely any relationship building and I had a hard time keeping up with the feelings between Jennie and Nate. Luckily it all made sense in the end, but I got annoyed there for a while because it was moving so fast.

I just loved Nate. He had such a big and tender heart. How could you not fall in love with him when he tried so hard to put Jennie's life first, above his feelings for her, ev

Ok, this book really didn’t have to be labeled a paranormal romance, the angel theme is just a subcontext, for me this book is a young adult in itself needing no angel-theme attached…

The angel story isn’t really talked detail by detail in the book, it adds spice and keep you reading.. it points why Jennie and Nate’s love is forbidden, but what captures me is the fullness of the characters and the flow of the story itself… it doesn’t delve deep into the

I don;t even know how to begin… First of all, I really enjoyed the plot, but I found it a bit too simple for my taste. Yes, I do love to read this kind of books, but I prefer a plot a bit more complex.( think about books that cannot be read on the tube or in a car) The story is beautiful, some sort of Romeo & Juliet combined with a sitcom.

The book is a little bit too easy to read, which can be a pro, but also a con. It is obvious that the author is not that experienced, but it shows great pr

My Review:

Have you ever thought that a soul is sent to earth just for you? That if that being wasn't there you don't know how different your life would be? or would you even be here at all?

This heart gripping soul searching novel is told from the other side.

A story of many possibilities of how fate and Divine intervention are all apart of how through the smallest and greatest tragedies love prevails all.

I actually couldn't remember what this book what about when I started reading it. So, I went in blind. I only had the cover to go by. Looks pretty good. Loving couple on the front. What's not to like?!

This is a guardian angel story. I've not read any angel paranormal in quite awhile. I'm not up on all the lore involved. Nate is Jennie's Guardian Angel. Her protector. His job is to protect her from a certain event so she is not harmed. That doesn't mean that others won't be, but that she needs to

Unbreakable Love is the debut novel of Author Angela Carling, and I was lucky enough to snag a copy!

This has got to be one of the super cutest books I’ve read in awhile.

The characters are great, though, the story line isn’t as unique as I would have liked it to be, Mrs. Carling does a great job in writing a novel with Angels in it.

Angels have swept across the world, becoming a very popular storyline vice, but even though it’s something that is over worked, Mrs. Carling still manages to put a

Unbreakable Love is a very cute story about forbidden love between a young girl and her guardian angel.
I truly enjoyed this story and it managed to make me cry in the end and so I believe it deserves a full 5 stars.
I loved Nate and really felt for him through all his conflicted emotions. At times I wished he would just act on them already because the anticipation was killing me!
I was easily able to relate to Jennie and felt her heartache when she felt rejected. I particularly liked Celeste as w

After reading this book, I now wonder if I have had a guardian angel. Going through high school can be rough enough as it is, but Jennie is lucky enough to have been sent a guardian angel, though she does not know it. With some very rough pitches about to be thrown her way, Nate is there to help Jennie through them. With a romance blooming but Nate being unable to act on it and tragedies about to occur, this book will have you hanging on the edge of the bleachers. Between Nate's charm and Jennie ...more

I wanted to like this book, I really really did. It had a great premise, forbidden love between a girl and her guardian angel. And I love books in the angel genre, but this one fell flat for me. I never developed a connection to the events, a connection to the characters of Nate and Jennie, nor did I see theirs with each other. I also felt like the story was choppy, one ridiculous event after another. Nothing felt sincere or believable. Overall, I was disappointed.
