Brett Taylor’s world collapsed three years ago when he lost the love of his life. Almost as bad as the grief is the advice he’s starting to get from everyone and their brother, telling him it’s time to move on. They’re flat-out wrong. He left his career as a musician and escaped to his ranch because he needs the peace and quiet, and he’s doing just fine. He doesn’t want anyone invading his memory-filled, booze-fueled solitude.
JT Campbell’s world has been defined by his parents’ money, status, and his own empty relationships, until he’s desperately sick of it. A quest to find something meaningful leads him to Brett’s failing ranch. It’s supposed to be a brief stay. JT never wanted to be anyone’s savior or compete with the ghosts of lovers past. Still, he can’t help wanting this gruff and grieving man.
JT’s mind knows it’s a bad idea, but his heart keeps pushing him to find out what lies beneath Brett’s rough and broken exterior. Brett’s not going to make it easy. JT can only be patient, keep his sense of humor, and hope for the day he may be allowed far enough into Brett’s world to unbreak his heart.

OK, if I had a shelf titled Over-The-Top-Sticky-Sweet-M/M-Romance-In-The-Best-Possible-Way that is where this book would live. Unbreak My Heart is off-the-charts romantic and had two MCs I absolutely adored. I cried during the first 10 pages of this book, while reading a letter MC Brett had written to his dead lover Walt. I almost decided to stop reading, thinking it would be too emotional, but I kept going and I was rewarded with a beautifully emotional tale of two men falling in love. This is going right on my fuck yeah, 5+ stars shelf because it is one of the most romantic books I have ever read, M/M or M/F. You are going to fall head over heels for Brett and MC J.T. No question in my mind.
If you like reading about friendship that turns into deep, emotional love, couples that wait until there is an emotional connection before having sex, broken down cowboys full of guilt and shame, overbearing but well meaning best friends and country Momma’s, and more romance than you can shake a stick at, I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND Unbreak My Heart to you. I loved this fucking book!!!
