Unbroken (Shattered Promises #2.5) by Jessica Sorensen-NA Paranormal Romance
Kindle format given by author for review

Alex thought things were already complicated, but then Gemma shows up possessed by Stephan and she wants to kill him. Normally, he would eliminate someone in Gemma’s position to protect himself, but his feelings for Gemma won’t allow him to do that. She’s too important to him and he knows he has to save her without hurting her.

But can he find a way to save her before someone gets hurt?

For those of us anxious to get our hands on book 3 in this series, Broken Vision, this was a spine-tingling tidbit to hold us over! Getting inside Alex’s head was a delicious treat, even though he found himself in great peril for nearly the entire short tale. He is connected to Gemma on a profound level despite all that lies between them, and as he faced the evil that was inside her he came to grips with his true feelings. This…this was a thrilling and painful leg of their journey.

What I loved about this novella was that getting inside Alex’s mind meant seeing his flashbacks; his connection to Gemma started far before their reunion as adults, and I loved seeing him think back fondly about this woman he has grown to love. He was struggling with his emotions, thinking back to where they started and then seeing her body taken over by pure evil when he still loved her so deeply. And of course, wanted her with a fire that would melt buildings to the ground!! Yes, Gemma’s newfound other personality wasn’t afraid to try the sexy temptress angle in order to get Alex under her spell, and he was sucked right in with his crazy lust for her. But he was wise to her tricks, and willing to do anything to pull Gemma away from the darkness that was consuming her.

We’re left with the major cliffhanger that will lead into book 3, so I’m excited to see just how dark things are going to get before they start to turn around. In the meantime, this was a great go-between read that made me love Alex all that much more!!

Quotes:

I immediately sense there’s something off about her. It definitely looks like Gemma, but there’s something missing…~Loc118

It’s mind blowing, the way she makes me feel; the heat flowing between us, the sparks, near explosion. I’m one step away from ripping her clothes off and fucking her. ~Loc 364

I’m stroking Gemma’s hair, lost in my thoughts, when her eyelids lift open. The sunlight from outside hits them, and for the briefest moment she looks like my Gemma, but as quickly as the look appears, it fades. ~Loc 570
