    DNF at 50%This is a first for me. Usually, once I start a book I can't quit, no matter what. But, there are too many books that I want to read NOW and don't have time for. So, NO MORE making myself miserable with a book I'm not enjoying. I'm sad to say that this book rubbed me the wrong way from the prologue, but I made the decision to push through, only to be further disappointed. I'm honestly shocked by all of the 5 star ratings and question if people are being truly honest with their reviews.....otherwise what's the point?I appreciate the hard work the author put in to writing the book, but it just wasn't for me. Here are my reasons why: (view spoiler)[1. In the prologue, Trish is madly in love (supposedly) with her boyfriend of 5 months, Dylan. But, when she meets his best friend, Jake, and their eyes meet, both of them know the other is "the one". Really? I don't do insta-love. Even though there was a 2 year time difference between the prologue and Chapter 1 it still felt like insta-love because there was NO development of their relationship whatsoever.2. Dylan goes back in the Marines for some unknown reason, doesn't tell Trish until he is leaving (but they are madly in love) and gets killed. It was disrespectful to me, when she's thinking about how much she misses Dylan after he died, but only as a friend. They were madly in love, but I guess he was just replaceable with Jake.3. There was too much annoying drama, especially when Trish and Jake are trying to make each other jealous. All of the character's reactions were over the top.4.Trish's father and Dylan die and now Jake finds out he has cancer. Even though he's had an engagement ring for a month he proposes the day he finds out about the cancer. It just didn't feel genuine. Too over the top and unrealistic.5. Once the drug cartel storyline was introduced, I bailed. Too much going on. (hide spoiler)]

    A complimentary copy provided by the author for Blog Tour Amazon Buy Link--->> UNBREAKABLE (ABLE SERIES) ~~ 5 "Unbreakable" Stars ~~ The title Unbreakable truly fits this story.  The love that Jake and Trisha had was truly put to the test in this book. (In more ways then one). Being Gigi's debut novel , I thought she did extremely well.  This story is beautifully written and well executed.  She was able to create a story and characters that you could relate to and couldn't help falling in love with all of them.  This book is truly a test of ones emotions....quite the roller coaster.  One minute Gigi had me loving Jake and Trish and the next I was pissed at both of them and wanted to smack them both and tell them to wake up. I also laughed, smiled, swooned, and cried. This story truly had my feelings going all over the place. I really felt like I was a part of this group of friends. The bond of friendship that Gigi created with these characters is like no other….everyone wishes they had friends like these. This was so much more than just a story about an unbreakable love, but also a journey that 2 people went through to overcome some of the hardest things in life. We totally watched these characters grow into such strong people through this book. This story was told in dual POV and I thought that was the only way this story could be told. You really needed to hear both sides of this story. I also thought the writing style and flow of the book was amazing….flawless!!! Gigi did an excellent job giving us enough information to make the story feel real, but not too much making the story drag on.Like I said, the cast of characters in this book really make this story. I love when an author can give us characters who you wish you knew in real life. It's makes the connection to the book so much more. This book is mainly about Trish and Jake, but their BFF's/Family members also help bring this story alive. Jake and Trish have been friends for awhile. They met through Trish's then boyfriend Dylan, who was also Jake's BFF. Jake and Trish had an instant connection but because of Dylan they didn't act on it. Then something tragic happens to Dylan and Trish is left to pick up the pieces. Trish leans on Jake for help to get over the tragedy. Through this their connection grows stronger and they both realize they need each other and love each other. The hopeless romantic in me loved their connection and love story. Talk about sweet…Roxy (Trish's BFF and Jake's Cousin) would call them Tooth Decay. ( it totally fit ) but I LOVED it!!!!"My love for you is endless, time nor space cannot change it, days won't be measured by it, a lifetime is short compared to it. I can't measure it, even if I wanted to. It's immeasurable and unchangeable, it goes on forever; it will remain whole….unbreakable."….JakeI don't want to say too much about the storyline because I think everyone needs to experience this book on there own. I will forewarn you though, this book does deal with a tough subject matter. You will definitely need tissues when you read this book. But don't worry the other characters in this story help with the comic relief to help lighten the mood of the book. You will definitely have a smile on your face when you finish this book. I LOVED the last 3 chapters of this book. The epilogue was great too because it totally set up for the next book which will be about another couple ;) I could go on and on about this book, but I don't want to bore you with my rambling. JUST READ IT!!!!I would 100% recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!! If you are looking for a sweet but emotional love story, then this is the book for you. Read this book, you won't be sorry!!!!!"We're each other's gift. A gift we'll always cherish. A love we'll always protect. A bond that will never be severed by anything or anyone….a bond that's unbreakable."….TrishFor more reviews go to Book BItches Blog

    I finished this book 2 days ago, and i still cant seem to get my emotions in check. Jake and Trish have taken up residence in my head and heart and they probably wont be leaving anytime soon.When Gigi asked if I would be willing to read her book i thought sure, why not? I didn't know what to expect, but i certainly wasn't expecting to have my mind blown by a new author with her debut novel. I still don't think that there are enough words to say will do justice to the beauty of the story that Gigi has created. 5 stars just doesn't seem to be enough. Books like Unbreakable are the reason that I love to read.For me, when an author can provoke so many emotions in a reader, and make a reader feel as though they are right there by the characters side, that's what makes a good story. And this novel had my emotions all over the place. There were times when the silly banter between the group of friends had me laughing out loud and in the blink of an eye, that laughter turned into ugly crying. Yes, you will need tissues....and lots of them.Trish Wilson's boyfriend Dylan died in Afghanistan while serving his country. His death, coupled with the passing of her father in the same year, left her broken hearted and afraid to love again. Jake Oliver was Dylan's best friend. He's always had a thing Trish but he stayed away out of respect for Dylan. When Dylan was killed, Jake stepped up to the plate and became her source of comfort. It was a tragedy that brought them together, will it be a tragedy that tears them apart?This story is so beautifully written. The characters are so unique in their own ways and well developed. I felt as though i was right there with them with each page I turned. The plot is thought out and it is apparent that a lot of thought and research went into several aspects of this book. To say I am impressed is an understatement. BUt what I loved most in this book is the message that I walked away with: A little bit of love, faith, and prayer can go a long way if you just believe.I cant recommend this book enough and you can be sure that I will be stalking Gigi for more books. A top 5 of 2014 for me without a doubt. Simply put, it's brilliant. Well done Gigi!

    5 UNBREAKABLE STARS !!This book was such a wonderful debut I am so excited to read more from Gigi !!The prologue starts out pretty simple , Dylan is taking Trish to meet his friends , of course 1 look and 1 touch from Jake and sparks fly , not only for Trish but for Jake.Fast forward a few years and chapter 1 takes you into Trish's nightmare where you learn that not only has Dylan dies after leaving her to go serve overseas but she lost her father as well. Trish now lives in a duplex with all of Dylan's friends that quickly became her friends after that 1st meeting years ago. Roxy and Tami try to help Trish come out of her slump while the guys , Jake , Cody and Brian do their best to protect her from the wrong men. Their friendships are quite comical and I love the easy flow of the story. They are all in love with one another and you can tell that at some point this group of 6 friends is going to turn into a group of 3 couples !!Though Trish is suffering from the heartbreak of losing Dylan she has been fighting her feelings for Jake since they 1st met and he has been doing the same. When they finally give in their relationship moves quickly and their love is beautiful. Jake does have a past and for awhile I assume this is the drama this story has to offer and as annoying as it is to be on the edge of my seat wondering which ex fling it will be turning up next , I am eating up this story loving their HOT SEX and their loving fights !! I was not prepared for what happens in this story and lets just say I was heartbroken and almost had to stop reading. The raw emotions you experience when this story actually opens up to its full potential are crazy. It was so real and so easy to relate to. The characters showed all the emotions I expected , no fluff , no ease of reading for us. It was written to rip you up and then heal you. The journey Trish and Jake's love takes them on is a journey nobody wants or expects to happen but when it does you can give up or you can fight. This story shows you the importance of fighting. It really is an UNBREAKBALE love.

    I absolutely loved this authors first book!!! The instant attraction between Jake and Trisha even though she was with his best friend. I'm sure this happens to a lot of people and just like the characters they did nothing to act on it. When a tragedy strakes and Jake and Trisha are both open to see each other its still a struggle. Can they be enough for each other? Is it wrong to be together? Having feelings for Jake has nothing to do with the feeling she has/had for Dylan. They really struggle to be together. They are sweet and happy together then tragedy strikes again. Jake is sick.... Can she be strong enough... Can Jake let her go? Should he let her go? Jake plans to let her go and makes some contingency plans. Trisha finds out and make some plans of her own. Trisha learns to be strong for both of them....This book sucked me in from the beginning. I am not ashamed to admit I cried from about 50% to the end of the book. This book had it all Love, Friends, Family, Strength, Faith, Courage, Joy!!!! I was happy how the book ended but I want more!!! I hope the author writes more about this group of friends/family!!!

    Oh my, where do I even start? This book is so emotional and gripping, that you can’t help but keep reading. The book starts two years in the past with Trish meeting Dylan’s family and friends for the first time. While she is nervous to meet them, she can’t help but to feel some pull toward Jake. Things are great, until Dylan decides to leave the Reserves and go to active duty. He is killed while on deployment and everything changes.Now, two years later, Jake is ready to make his move. He has been in love with Trish since he met her, but knew he couldn’t do anything about it. When he realizes that Trish loves him too, they begin their life journey together. No, it is not smooth sailing as they both need to let go of the past in order to get to their HEA.Just when you think things couldn’t get better, they are hit with devastating news. Jake worries it will push Trish away and Trish is worried that she will lose someone else she loves. This is a great story about overcoming your past, bracing for the uncertainty of the future and loving with all your heart.I can’t say enough good things about this book. It grabs you right for the beginning and you go on a wonderful, sad and love felt journey with Trish and Jake. The author did a great job with the story. She didn’t have unnecessary filler and the story just flowed so well. The other characters in the book were great as well. I honestly think the book would have been lacking something if it wasn’t for them. If you are looking for an emotional read, look no further, Gigi Aceves has you covered. Be warned though, it does have a cliffhanger; however, I don’t think you will be disappointed in going ahead and reading it. We will just need to bug Gigi to write faster so we know what happens!!

    Jake and Trish!! LOVED them! What more can I say? Trish lost her fiance in war, and Jake his best friend was there to pick up the pieces. He spent so much time watching Trish from the sidelines and finally had his chance to have the woman that was meant to be his.Life doesn't work out the way we have planned. EVER. When we finally find things aligning perfectly, there is always a curve ball. Jake and Trish are thrown when Jake gets news that will change their lives and test their love. Trish has lost so much in her life, yet she feeds off of the love and strength that Jake gives her and straps on her big girl panties. My eyes were wet for most of this story. The love and friendships and hard times this crew went through tore my heart apart and mended it back together. I felt like I was a part of their story and I felt every emotion they all experienced. I really loved the concept and storyline!I have one complaint with this book that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating. At times it was all over the place. Characters or past relationships would be mentioned, but it wasn't built upon. Sometimes I was confused if i missed something and thought maybe I was reading a book in a series and missed the previous story. It just felt like things were missing and parts were random and I had to figure things out on my own. Not a big deal though, because the storyline itself made sense. I could tell this story came from the author's personal experience, and honestly there is no better therapy or story than sharing your experiences, tragedies, and triumphs with the world. For that reason I gave this book 4 stars, and I am really looking forward to book two! This cliffhanger is going to drive me nuts, I am not going to lie!! :)

    I was provided a copy of the book by the Author for an honest review.WOW just finish reading this book and I love it, love the characters, I have to say this book had me on an emotional roller coaster, I am telling you this book made me cried, laugh, and mad, but I love every single minute of it, I am gone keep this short since I don't want to give anything away.The story begging with Trish, Trish had being dating Dylan, for the last five month Dylan has tried to get her to meet his friend, that's when she agree to it, that was the day that she met Jake, now when Jake saw her for the first time he knew that she was the one. But their was a problem that was his best friend girl, after that he had being in love with Trish from far away, Now a year later and Trish is waking up from having a dream of Dylan, Dylan had die in Afghanistan and Trish never got her closure, Jake has always being their for her, things start to look up for Trish and Jake, that's until Jake get news, that would change their lives and test their love. Would they over come anything and everything that life throw their ways. Would Trish give up on her fear and love again.I really love and enjoy reading this book, I love how Jake was always their for Trish, and love it when Trish finally open up to Jake, I love how this two gets to fall in love, I love it how this book made me have a good cried, I have to say I cried like a baby but I love it, Now I cant wait to read more from this author, and see what else she has in store, Author Gigi Aceves THANK YOU for introducing me to this amazing characters and this awesome book love it.

    Wish I could double that 5 star rating.This book was phenomenal.I always heard, write what you know. When you know what you are writing you will be able to capture your audience.Gigi Aceves did just that. I won't lie it took me a few days to read it. It wasn't because I didn't like it or was boring. In the contrary, this book did not deserve to be a quick read and a race to the finish. Not that those books are bad. But this book honestly touched me. It made me think. I felt for the characters. Trish and Jake's story is one that touches you and makes your heart hurt.Trish and Jake go through so much. It makes you wonder if there are couples that just breeze through life without worries or cares? What we see with these two is the fight for true love, the fight to stay together. The journey we take with them is one couples usually never recover from. But true and real love always finds a way to overcome hardship.The symbolism of Faith is big in this book and I am a sucker for couples that put their faith and trust on the big man. I can't lie, my heart has made room for one of my new couples. Genuine, emotional, real life issues addressed and that got me. Shit happens, how we deal with it speaks volumes. Freaking Gigi Aceves is a damn genius. She keeps it real and that is important. I can't wait to see what else happens with my fave cast of characters. Some deep stuff is gonna be going down and I will NOT miss it.Gigi, you rock it with this book. Congratulations on your debut.

    Where do I start. I know this is Gigi Aceves Author first book but what an awesome, amazing, fabulous, wonderful book she gave us. I was and am very excited for this story. Trish met Dylan at her father's firing range and became a couple. When the time came in their relationship where he (Dylan) wanted her to meet his family and closest friends ( like his brothers and sisters ) at this get together that is when she meets Jake, she had an instant attraction / feeling that didn't even come close to what she felt for Dylan. The same was for Jake he knew she was the ONE. They both just stayed friends, to Jake she was taken by his BF. But life is a funny thing, Things don't go as planned. Dylan lives and breathes the military life and he re-enlist. JAKE is asked by Dylan to be there for Trish if he doesn't return. Time goes and Jake finally goes after what he wants Trish. This is a book that puts you right there with these Characters, you feel their sadness, happiness, LOVE and pain everything they go through you are there feeling it. I was on an emotional rollercoaster . I'm Laughed my Ass off and I cried my eyes out but in the end it was all worth it. I would and will recommend this book to any and everyone. I would give this Author more then 5 stars if I could , she did an Awesome job with her book.

    This book is about love, hope, faith, and courage. Trish thought she had found the love her life in Dylan. Jake knew the moment he saw Trish she was different than any other woman he had met. Jake fell in love with Trish from afar. When Dylan was killed in Afghanistan, things changed for Jake and Trish. Their friendship grew to more.When they thought they had their happily ever after, life threw them another curve ball. Is the love they have strong enough to get them through the fight of their lives? Is a promise of a life together enough to make them fight? This book takes the reader on a journey. The journey is not only Jake and Trish's story, but it's Jake's story and Trish's story. The reader will experience many emotions as they watch Jake and Trish, not only grow as a couple, but also individually.I rated this book 5 stars because the growth of the characters from the beginning to the end, this book made me feel every emotion, and because it's nice to see the power of love, prayer, and even laughter.

    No one wants to go through life having lost someone, especially your significant other, to then turn around and open your heart to another and you come close to it happening again. One can only take so much right? I really liked that this was and POV between the two main characters, if it was just one sided, with dealing with something as serious and cancer, I think it would have been too emotional if it was left one sided. Having that POV balance worked for this story, getting Jakes thoughts about how much he had loved Trish and would do anything to have her, to his time in the hospital going through treatment really brought out a lot of character development and growth in not just the main characters but supporting ones as well. When Trish got hysterical with emotion, he would calm her and right her emotions again. Love the ending and cliff hanger was indeed just that, making you want more of this story and what happens to the next main characters in book two.

    Unbreakable is the perfect title for this book. Jake and Trish have been through a lot. I mean a lot. They have both lost someone close to the. Jake lost his best friend and Trish lost her boyfriend in Afghanistan. They have each other to get throughout the loss. But even before, Jake had a crush on his best friends girl. He knew nothing could come of it, but he left as though Trish felt something too.Now, time has past and these two can not deny their feelings for each other. As much as they try to hide it, everyone can see these two are meant to be together. It seems as soon as they are a couple, life throws a curve ball at them and they are met with even more devastation..Unbreakable was a real test of the love between Trish and Jake.

    omg, this book just has so much going for it. This is the author's first book and wow what a first. I found it so emotional at times I found it hard to read for tears. This really did touch my heart and some times I felt the actual squeeze. I never wanted to put the book down and to be honest reread it a few days after finishing it the first time. The characters are so good I can't wait to read more about Cody and Rox. However for me this book gave me Jake and Trish and their story is beautiful and not your normal love story. I would give more than 5 stars.

    While I struggled a bit at the beginning because it didn't grab me right from the start, I ended up enjoying Unbreakable. It's one of those books that you know the premise going in, but then it turns out to be completely different than what you thought it was going to be. Jake and Trish definitely have a lot of obstacles to overcome, but they never give up on each other and in the end come out stronger for it. I look forward to reading more from Gigi in the future.

    Gigi did an amazing job!! Can't wait for the next one.I will admit I was having a hard time staying focused at the beginning of the book but once I got to about 30% I couldn't put it down. In the beginning of the book I had a hard time loving Trish she was so jealous but the more I read the more I loved her. I look forward to where the next book takes us!

    3.5 StarsReview by Allison EastUnbreakable is the first novel in Gigi Aceves' Able series. It's the story of Jake and Trish. It's got an element of insta-love, which I have no problem with. But there is kind of a problem here!! Trish is dating Jake's best friend, Dylan. Fast forward, Dylan has been killed overseas- and Jake's crush has turned full blown into love scenario. Trish actually feels the same way- but because she never got to say goodbye to Jake she is having trouble facing the fact she needs to move on. I did really like Trish and her ability to get through the pain of losing Dylan. It was her struggle and she chose how she was going to get over it. I connected with Jake's character as well, even though he battles some crazy stuff, he is over all a super fantastic hero. At first the chemistry between them is not shown through love and affection, it is shown through jealousy- and anger. Both of them were jumping to conclusions about the other. It goes back and forth between the two of them. Jake had a need to make sure that Trish was going to love him, more than she loved Dylan. It was a little frustrating to me. But then the whole story, for me, changed when Jake began to have some medical issues. It made the story that much more interesting to me. I really enjoy the last half of this book. It was a plot that specifically resonated home with me, and for that I will suggest this book. If you can get read through the first 30% or so, and accept the characters' immaturity, you can finish this book and see the growth that these two had!

    WOW The Gauntlet of Unbreakable EmotionsYou would never really expect this kind of a book to come from a first-time author. Bravo Gigi Aceves!!!! It was funny, and heart wrenching. It was so special and frustrating it was just a gauntlet of emotions. I can't wait to see what's in store for the next two novels.This book really does have it all love, friends, comedy, suspense, strength, faith, fight and courage it really is an emotional roller coaster ride. This book is so emotionally gripping. I had to put it down a few times but I could only leave for a few minutes at a time. I laugh so hard through a lot of this book I had people laughing at me because I was reading in public and then other times I'm crying so hard that I have people making sure I'm okay. This book was such a great surprise the main characters were so likable I found myself feeling all of the emotions with them as I was reading. The banter between all the characters was crisp and witty and just really fun. All the characters in this book are really strong you can really see their focus. They are well-developed you see and feel exactly what you think you would see and feel in the situation if you were going through it in person yourself.I would highly recommend this book to Everyone!!!If you stop reading this book before you get to the epilogue it is the end of the book BUT if you read the epilogue then there's a cliffhanger for the next book. Epilogue has nothing to do with the book but simply a preview book two.

    Wow, what can I say but WOW. I was so happy when Gigi asked me to read her first book. I was not prepared how emotional it would be. I am talking a full box of tissues here. I have to say that Gigi was able to convey every emotion of every character that you read about. You can not tell that this is her first novel. It was written like she had several books under her belt. Jake and Trish are meant for each other but they have a fight and huge hurdles to cross before they can be together. There are a lot of tears...god a lot of tears but there are also plenty of times to laugh. She brought real life into this book and you really need to finish it to find out what happens. You will fall in love with Tami (Jakes sister) and Roxi (his cousin), Brian and Cody (Jakes best friends and partners). I love how they all live together and rally around Jake and Trish when they need it...so does his parent and her mom. Even Nurse Betsy and the Dr's. But you can not forget Dylan....he brought these 2 together to find their ONE. You will have to see for yourself if their bond and love is really UNBREAKABLE. Thank you Gigi for the opportunity to read this book.
