Alex Gardener has her life planned out, down to the smallest detail. She has a skyrocketing career as a litigation attorney, a close group of socialite friends, and is engaged to one of the most successful businessmen in Beverly Hills. Everything is just as she wants it: comfortable, predictable, secure…if lacking passion. Fire.
Cory Bishop is a struggling working man, trying to make ends meet while fighting to keep custody his young daughter. He knows that working hard is the only way to achieve his goals, but lately it seems everything he wants hangs just out of reach.
The bank robbery changes everything.
Alex and Cory spend three harrowing days as hostages locked in a bank with fifty frightened people and six criminals who grow more desperate--and dangerous--by the hour. Alex and Cory find comfort and safety with each other and reveal their deepest hopes and fears and secrets, unknowingly building a bond forged out of desperation and fear, one that they can’t break, even once outside the bank’s walls.
Their lives are turned upside down, irrevocably altered, and they seek to move on and put the robbery--and each other--behind them.
But some bonds, once forged, cannot be broken.
Unbreakable had some pretty good excitement, very attaching characters, and a story that hurt my heart a little bit
Unbreakable was full of feels! Some of them good feelings, other, not so positive. However, a story that can make me both sigh with contentment, and be angry with some of the characters is a good one. There were some rather big relationship complications here, which added another layer to Unbreakable. And I’m not sure it’s a story for everyone.
Both Alex and Cory have had their lot of hardship. Their hardship, however, is very different in many ways, and similar in others. Unbreakable shows how hard it can be to live up to expectations. Especially our own, and those of our family.
There is a beautiful love story in Unbreakable, between two characters who never would have met if it wasn’t for a bank robbery. And that bank robbery changed so much in their lives, because afterwards, nothing was the same. Especially Alex came out of the robbery very different, even when it came to her professional ambitions, she wasn’t so sure anymore what she wanted to do.
If you enjoy stories with characters who fight to do what’s right, this one should make its way to your shelf.
The dream was gone but the aching need between my legs was wide-awake. Though I knew it was futile, I turned and reached for him.
