6 Hearts!

Unbreak My Heart is Lauren Blakely's newest masterpiece and one of my favorites of the year. I have to give this one 6 Hearts. For breaking my heart and putting it back together again. For making me cry and giving me a sense of peace when I was done. For showing me healing is possible. Hope is everything. You have to mend your own broken heart before you let love in. Love is the key. This story is different than Lauren's usual fun and flirty romances. She still gives us the witty banter

OMG what more can you say about Lauren Blakely and her books?
This one starts off with breaking your heart and as the story progresses it slowly heals!
Andrew is alone now in this world since his brothers death. All he has is his friend Holland, whom he loves with all his heart, but can't have at this moment, and Sandy, his brothers dog.
Follow his story and how he learns to live again, and cope with the hands he's been dealt.
I laughed, cried, felt butterflies, her words in this book literally gut
5.5 stars
This is not a typical sexy, rom com from Lauren Blakely. Don’t get me wrong, it does have some flirty banter and fun. It’s also got some sweetness and swoon. But this one also has more heartbreak and emotional turmoil. It starts out in a pretty dark place for the hero who is stuck in a state of grief, loss, and numbness. Andrew is lost, struggling, and grasping for something to give him purpose. He feels alone, and now finds himself reaching towards the girl that got away.

A Review of Unbreak My Heart by Lauren Blakely

Andrew and Holland - 5+++++ Stars

In a complete departure from the normal style of book I'm used to getting from Ms. Blakely, this book had me hooked from the first page. Ms. Blakely certainly knows how to write a story that will rip your heart out and then piece it back together, bit by bit. I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book without knowing anything about it—no blurb or character names. There are some funny parts and some very touching pa

Unbreak My Heart is about the journey of healing, finding peace and having a second chance at love. Such a great listen. Blakely tells a heartfelt story about letting go and learning to cope with grief the right way. I love that Holland knew how to give Andrew space to heal on his own so their relationship could get a second chance.

This is not a sugary, spicy, funny rom-com that we are used to by Blakely, but a story that encompasses all the emotion you get from loss and the steps one takes to

5 Cherry Blossom CROWNS

Unbreak My Heart by Lauren Blakely is not the typical romance we have come to expect. It is an introspective examination of grief and digging out of the sadness that weighs a person down.

This book is so much more than a romance. It looks at how a soul heals, how we get better emotionally and mentally, even when our bodies can’t or won’t . It is about a journey to live a life worth having, to grab everything it has to offer. At the end of it, I f

Where do I start? Since I don’t tend to read many tear jerker books, I was nervous being told before I read it, this book would make me cry. Giving no spoilers, the subject matter is a serious and difficult one. Andrew has been going through a tough time personally. When his former girlfriend, Holland shows up at his front door, he’s forced to face everything keeping him from moving forward.

Since I’m sure so many readers have gone through this to some extent, if not the same as Andrew. That’s wh

Picture this: I just got home from watching Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again at the theater. My eyes were still watery from having spent the last half hour of the movie crying nonstop and I was already in a fragile state of emotions. And then...I decided to start Unbreak My Heart. Immediately, I wondered, “What the heck was I thinking?” I mean, Lauren Blakely did warn me this wasn’t a rom-com (I’m notoriously anti-angst), but my goodness. Talk about getting hit right in the feels! The author doesn’t ...more
Red Cheeks Reads

I’ve made no secret of my love for Lauren Blakely’s contemporary romances and romantic comedies. They’re my drug of choice, my happy place, and the titles at the top of my TBR list. I wouldn’t say that I’ve pigeon-holed her, but those types of stories are what I’ve come to expect and look forward to from this author. So, when I read the blurb for Unbreak My Heart, I was very intrigued because it sounded so completely different than what I was used to from her. What I would soon learn,

Unbreak My Heart was a beautiful and emotional second chance romance. It was more than a romance, though. It was a story about following your heart, healing, and love. I listened to the audio book of this novel and it was narrated by Joe Arden and Erin Mallon. Nothing makes listening to an audio book better than two stellar narrators and this book definitely had that! 

It's apparent from the start that the Andrew we meet at the start of the book is not the real Andrew. This Andrew is

10 stars (no exaggeration, either)

I have to start by saying that I'm a crier. I've been known to cry tears of joy, tears of sadness, even tears of frustration (though it takes a lot to get me to that point). So when I saw the blurb for Unbreak My Heart I knew I was going to need tissues. This book was everything I could have asked for and more.

Unbreak My Heart is like no other book by Lauren Blakely. Yes they all have all the feels, but Unbreak My Heart is more of everything. It´s not the typical rom com, the story made me laugh, it made me cry, I was angry at some point and then it made me cry again. You´ll need tissues, be prepared.

Unbreak My Heart is the heartwrenching story of Andrew and Holland.

Oh, Ms. Blakely...It is with extreme pleasure and hopefully, grace when I say you have taken me on quite a journey over these years. I have experienced lots of banter, sexual innuendos galore, and the feeling of camaraderie with all of the interlinked characters you have given me. If that was all in your repertoire then I would be a very happy camper and auto-click until the day I can not read...

Andrew and Holland are amazing. Andrew is your typical guy going through a tragedy the best way he knows a dumb boy...who thinks he knows it all :)
Holland is his friend turned lover turned friend again...I know right?
You know the story...they were young and in love, but life and yada yada yada...
Cut to now this tragedy happened and they find themselves back in each other's life. This can go two ways...either really good or really bad

This story was unexpected. I normally enjoy her easy, breezy, sexy, flirty books that are so fun, but this story blindsided me.

This story deals with grief and how the main character can survive his own despair.

Andrew has recently lost his brother to cancer and he is unable to cope. He can barely function until a letter comes in the mail. It raises questions that he needs to get answers to. Andrew decides to make a trip to his brothers home across the globe and brings his past girlfriend,
Crystal's Book World ~ Crystal Cordova
Unbreak My Heart...Oh man I begged for this as my heart had splintered into a thousand pieces. From page one, emotions ran through me. The blurb does not give you a hint of what is in store for you. Lauren Blakely is known for the sexy and the laugh out loud moments in her books. So I was amazed to see this side of her with this book. I was not prepared for the tears, the heartache, and the heavy. My first thought was Andrew can't be the hero of the book. He is too broken and so lost. He is a sh ...more

It’s hard to think straight when she’s the only thing I’m certain I want. When I’m positive her touch would erase the pain.

When I think of Lauren Blakely books, I think of light-hearted, swoony, and sexy rom-coms but after having read this book it’s clear that she can also brilliantly deliver a poignant story that packs quite the emotional punch! I thought this was a beautiful

I always, always love a Lauren Blakely romance! This one was different it wasn't just a love story oh the beautiful romance and the HEA was there but that wasn't the bulk of the book. This was a story of healing, of learning to cope and go on after the death of a love one.
It was touching, it was sad, it was funny at times and it was real! It sucks, it's hard to lose someone.
This book put me through every emotion, I felt all of Andrew's pain and cheered him through healing himself.

Unbreak Your Heart isn't just a love story, it is so much more. It is a story of hope and the strength of love. It is a story of grief and heartache. It is a story of strength and never giving up. It is a story of finding yourself again after the darkness tries to take over. This story will tear out your heart and then put it back together again.

I went into this blind so I didn't really know what to expect. I just know I didn't expect this story. Everything I've read by Lauren Blakely has been a rom-com of sorts so I was expecting this to be along those lines. Despite my expectations, this book was amazing in and of itself. I loved the versatility Lauren Blakely has shown me here and that has just entrenched her more on my faves list.

After experiencing more than his fair share of loss, Andrew feels himself slipping away, he's numb to feelings, everyday is the same; wake up, mourn, and then struggle to fall asleep at night. He has even taken to using his pain and loss to his advantage and convincing his cousin to complete the simplest tasks for him, but he knows before long she is going to stop and force him out of his shell and convince him it's time to face the world again. But he's just not ready to...

Wow! If I could give this book more than 5 stars, I totally would! This book is a bit different than other Lauren’s other books, in the sense that it digs in a little deeper. This book is about finding out how to live again after a devastating loss. It is about finding happiness in a sea of sorrow. And how sometimes the answers will set you free! This book literally had me in tears and then filled with warmth. And I can not recommend it enough!
