If you are a fan of this series, you will undoubtedly love these vignettes. If you are only just starting here, you most definitely need to go back, at a very minimum, to Ian and Hollis’ book, Devour, though I highly recommend you read them all. Each book is about one couple in particular, but all of the guys play important roles in all of them. Then, we are treated with these delicious side stories that give a little taste and something to whet your whistle until the next one comes along. Now that this series is wrapped up, there will be the spinoff to look forward to – Ward Securities.
Anyhoo, back to Ian and Hollis. This was a long-awaited couple who’s relationship had been brewing from almost the beginning but didn’t fully culminate until their own book. These Unbreakable stories are fun snippets of various events in the lives of our favorite couples, and it’s a really great way to keep up with how they are getting along.
Here, Hollis is finally gaining a stronghold into this super protective family as he proves himself worthy of Ian’s affections. Ian is a special guy with a horrific past, and all of the guys are super protective of him. So, it wasn’t easy for Hollis to finally achieve this, but it was nice to see it happen through the course of these stories.
There really isn’t much else to say except that with these, you get more of everything that was wonderful about the main stories. They are just as well written with the characters all remaining true, happy and content, just what we need to hold us over until we get to hopefully see them again in the future series.
