Review—Unbreak Me by Michelle Hazen

Publisher: Berkley
Published: August 13, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Source: Print ARC
Rating: 4.5 stars 

What could two troubled souls from different walks of life have in common? Maybe everything.
Andra Lawler lives isolated at her family’s horse ranch, imprisoned by the memories of an assault in college. When she needs help training her foals, she hires a Haitian-Creole cowboy from New Orleans with a laugh as big as the Montana sky.

LJ Delisle can’t stand the idea that Andra might be lonely—or eating frozen TV dinners. He bakes his way into her kitchen with a lemon velvet cake, and offers her cooking lessons that set them on the road to romance. But even their love can’t escape the shadow of what they've been through. Despite their growing friendship and his gentle rapport with the horses, LJ is still an outsider facing small-town suspicions.

Before they can work through their issues, LJ is called home by a family emergency. In the centuries-old, raggedly rebuilt streets of New Orleans, he must confront memories of Hurricane Katrina and familiar discrimination. And Andra must decide if she’s brave enough to leave the shelter of the ranch for an uncertain future with LJ.

Wow. Five stars isn’t enough for this amazing read! My words won’t do it any justice, so I won’t even try. LJ is what book boyfriends are made of—kind, beautiful, and swoony! The way he was with Andra was everything. I enjoyed watching the two fall in love. The romance was sweet and genuine. I want to go back and read all over again!

About the author:
Michelle Hazen is a nomad with a writing problem. Years ago, she and her husband ducked out of the 9 to 5 world and moved into their truck. She found her voice with the support of the online fanfiction community, and once she started typing, she never looked back. She has written most of her books in odd places, including a bus in Thailand, an off-the-grid cabin in the Sawtooth Mountains, a golf cart in a sandstorm, a rental car during a heat wave in the Mohave Desert and a beach in Honduras. Even when she’s climbing rocks, riding horses, or getting lost someplace wild and beautiful, there are stories spooling out inside her head, until she finally heeds their call and returns to her laptop and solar panels.

Michelle was awarded first place in the 2015 NTRWA Great Expectations Contest, 2017 Lonestar Contest and 2017 Linda Howard Award of Excellence in Romantic Suspense. Find her at http://michellehazenbooks.com/ on Facebook at Michelle Hazen, or follow her on Twitter @michellehazen.
