ARC Review: Unbreak My Heart by Nicole Jacquelyn

What do you do when your soul mate marries your best friend?

If you're Kate Evans, you keep your friend Rachel, bond with her kids, and bury your feelings for her husband. The fact that Shane's in the military and away for long periods helps-but when tragedy strikes, everything changes.

After Rachel, pregnant with her fourth child, dies in a car accident and the baby miraculously survives, Kate upends her entire life to share parenting duties. Then on the first anniversary of Rachel's death, Kate and Shane take comfort in each other in a night that they both soon regret.

Shane's been angry for a year, and now he feels guilty too - for sleeping with his wife's best friend and liking it . . . liking her. Kate's ability to read him like a book may have once sent Shane running, but their lives are forever entwined and they are growing closer.

Now with Shane deployed for seven months, Kate is on her own and struggling with being a single parent. Shane is loving and supportive from thousands of miles away, but his homecoming brings a betrayal Kate never saw coming. So Kate's only choice is to fight for the future she deserves - with or without Shane...

Unbreak My Heart broke my heart over and over again and left me angry at every page, but...I loved all the angst and heartbreak. This book is a fabulous read that makes you want to root for the Kate Evans and just punch Shane in the face (more than a few times)!

Kate Evans is the perfect best friend.She's bonded with her best friend's children, Rachel, who happens to be married to her long-time crush, Shane. Kate spent everyday with Rachel and the kids, while Shane has been deployed. The relationship between Kate and Shane is confusing for all, they were once friends growing up, but something changed that made Shane ignore Kate. 

After a tragic accident, Kate finds herself helping Shane and the kids. The kids are so attached to Kate and vice versa. And Shane is feeling guilty for losing and missing his wife and having feelings for Kate, but he's always lashing out at Kate. I have to say, Shane is total jerk most of this book. The things he says and does to Kate were so hurtful and hateful--I couldn't believe it. 

When Shane deploys again, Kate is on her own raising his kids--I loved the relationship she has with the children, but the struggle to make sure the kids are OK and herself starts to take a toll on her. Her relationship with Shane gets better while he's overseas, but at times he says things that hurts. 

Unbreak My Heart is a fabulous read that had so many ups and down for Kate. I just wanted this woman and those kids to be happy.
