This is a first for me. Usually, once I start a book I can't quit, no matter what. But, there are too many books that I want to read NOW and don't have time for. So, NO MORE making myself miserable with a book I'm not enjoying.

I'm sad to say that this book rubbed me the wrong way from the prologue, but I made the decision to push through, only to be further disappointed. I'm honestly shocked by all of the 5 star ratings and question if people are being truly honest with their reviews.

~~ 5 "Unbreakable" Stars ~~

The title Unbreakable truly fits this story. The love that Jake and Trisha had was truly put to the test in this book. (In more ways then one).

Being Gigi's debut novel , I thought she did extremely well. This story is beautifully written and well executed. She was able to create a story and characters that you could relate to and couldn't help falling in lo

I finished this book 2 days ago, and i still cant seem to get my emotions in check. Jake and Trish have taken up residence in my head and heart and they probably wont be leaving anytime soon.

When Gigi asked if I would be willing to read her book i thought sure, why not? I didn't know what to expect, but i certainly wasn't expecting to have my mind blown by a new author with her debut novel. I still don't think that there are enough words to say will do justice to the beauty of the story that Gig

This book was such a wonderful debut I am so excited to read more from Gigi !!

The prologue starts out pretty simple , Dylan is taking Trish to meet his friends , of course 1 look and 1 touch from Jake and sparks fly , not only for Trish but for Jake.

Fast forward a few years and chapter 1 takes you into Trish's nightmare where you learn that not only has Dylan dies after leaving her to go serve overseas but she lost her father as well. Trish now lives in a duplex with all of

I absolutely loved this authors first book!!! The instant attraction between Jake and Trisha even though she was with his best friend. I'm sure this happens to a lot of people and just like the characters they did nothing to act on it. When a tragedy strakes and Jake and Trisha are both open to see each other its still a struggle. Can they be enough for each other? Is it wrong to be together? Having feelings for Jake has nothing to do with the feeling she has/had for Dylan. They really struggle ...more

Oh my, where do I even start? This book is so emotional and gripping, that you can’t help but keep reading. The book starts two years in the past with Trish meeting Dylan’s family and friends for the first time. While she is nervous to meet them, she can’t help but to feel some pull toward Jake. Things are great, until Dylan decides to leave the Reserves and go to active duty. He is killed while on deployment and everything changes.
Now, two years later, Jake is ready to make his move. He has

Jake and Trish!! LOVED them! What more can I say? Trish lost her fiance in war, and Jake his best friend was there to pick up the pieces. He spent so much time watching Trish from the sidelines and finally had his chance to have the woman that was meant to be his.

Life doesn't work out the way we have planned. EVER. When we finally find things aligning perfectly, there is always a curve ball. Jake and Trish are thrown when Jake gets news that will change their lives and test their love. Trish has

Wish I could double that 5 star rating.

This book was phenomenal.

I always heard, write what you know. When you know what you are writing you will be able to capture your audience.

Gigi Aceves did just that. I won't lie it took me a few days to read it. It wasn't because I didn't like it or was boring. In the contrary, this book did not deserve to be a quick read and a race to the finish. Not that those books are bad. But this book honestly touched me. It made me think. I felt for the characters. T

Where do I start. I know this is Gigi Aceves Author first book but what an awesome, amazing, fabulous, wonderful book she gave us. I was and am very excited for this story. Trish met Dylan at her father's firing range and became a couple. When the time came in their relationship where he (Dylan) wanted her to meet his family and closest friends ( like his brothers and sisters ) at this get together that is when she meets Jake, she had an instant attraction / feeling that didn't even come close ...more

This book is about love, hope, faith, and courage. Trish thought she had found the love her life in Dylan. Jake knew the moment he saw Trish she was different than any other woman he had met. Jake fell in love with Trish from afar. When Dylan was killed in Afghanistan, things changed for Jake and Trish. Their friendship grew to more.

When they thought they had their happily ever after, life threw them another curve ball. Is the love they have strong enough to get them through the fight of their l

No one wants to go through life having lost someone, especially your significant other, to then turn around and open your heart to another and you come close to it happening again. One can only take so much right? I really liked that this was and POV between the two main characters, if it was just one sided, with dealing with something as serious and cancer, I think it would have been too emotional if it was left one sided. Having that POV balance worked for this story, getting Jakes thoughts ...more

Unbreakable is the perfect title for this book. Jake and Trish have been through a lot. I mean a lot. They have both lost someone close to the. Jake lost his best friend and Trish lost her boyfriend in Afghanistan. They have each other to get throughout the loss. But even before, Jake had a crush on his best friends girl. He knew nothing could come of it, but he left as though Trish felt something too.

Now, time has past and these two can not deny their feelings for each other. As much as they tr

omg, this book just has so much going for it. This is the author's first book and wow what a first. I found it so emotional at times I found it hard to read for tears. This really did touch my heart and some times I felt the actual squeeze. I never wanted to put the book down and to be honest reread it a few days after finishing it the first time. The characters are so good I can't wait to read more about Cody and Rox. However for me this book gave me Jake and Trish and their story is beautiful ...more

Gigi did an amazing job!! Can't wait for the next one.
I will admit I was having a hard time staying focused at the beginning of the book but once I got to about 30% I couldn't put it down. In the beginning of the book I had a hard time loving Trish she was so jealous but the more I read the more I loved her. I look forward to where the next book takes us!

Review by Allison East

Unbreakable is the first novel in Gigi Aceves' Able series. It's the story of Jake and Trish. It's got an element of insta-love, which I have no problem with. But there is kind of a problem here!! Trish is dating Jake's best friend, Dylan.

Fast forward, Dylan has been killed overseas- and Jake's crush has turned full blown into love scenario. Trish actually feels the same way- but because she never got to say goodbye to Jake she is having trouble facing the fact sh

WOW The Gauntlet of Unbreakable Emotions

You would never really expect this kind of a book to come from a first-time author. Bravo Gigi Aceves!!!! It was funny, and heart wrenching. It was so special and frustrating it was just a gauntlet of emotions. I can't wait to see what's in store for the next two novels.

This book really does have it all love, friends, comedy, suspense, strength, faith, fight and courage it really is an emotional roller coaster ride. This book is so emotionally gripping.

Wow, what can I say but WOW. I was so happy when Gigi asked me to read her first book. I was not prepared how emotional it would be. I am talking a full box of tissues here.

I have to say that Gigi was able to convey every emotion of every character that you read about. You can not tell that this is her first novel. It was written like she had several books under her belt.

Jake and Trish are meant for each other but they have a fight and huge hurdles to cross before they can be together. There a
