Melanie O’Bryan knows life is too short to be afraid of taking chances. And former Air Force sergeant Bennett Hart is certainly worth taking a chance on. He’s agreed to help her students with a school project, but she’s hoping the handsome handyman will offer her a whole lot more. Yet despite his heated glances and teasing touches, Mel senses there’s something holding him back . . .

Bennett Hart is grateful to be alive and back home in Mirabelle, Florida. Peaceful and uncomplicated-that’s all he’s looking for. Until a spunky, sexy-as-hell teacher turns his life upside down. After one smoldering kiss, Bennett feels like he’s falling without a parachute. But with memories of his past threatening to resurface, he’ll have to decide whether to keep playing it safe, or take the biggest risk of all.


Unstoppable is a contemporary romance with just the right amount of sex, intrigue, and humor to keep the reader turning pages.

I loved the way that author develops Melanie into an independent woman who is willing to wait for the man she knows is the one for her however is insightful enough to know that this may be an impossible feat. . Bennett who is suffering from post-traumatic stress needs to face his fears before allowing himself to love completely. The ups and downs of the relationship keep the reader’s interest. Although Bennett knows the physical and emotional compatibility is there with Melanie:  he has to ask and prove to himself- Will it be enough to conquer his past?

Although part of a series, the author has written this book to stand alone on its own merit. I have read two books of this series and have thoroughly enjoyed both. The author has a way of weaving the stories together so that the stories when read fill in the gaps of the characters without interdependence, if you haven’t read the previous or following books. I certainly  look forward to reading the next book of this series.
