Publisher: Forever
Pages: 400

Some things you don't dare let go . . .Melanie O'Bryan knows life is too short to be afraid of taking chances. And former Air Force sergeant Bennett Hart is certainly worth taking a chance on. He's agreed to help her students with a school project, but she's hoping the handsome handyman will offer her a whole lot more. Yet despite his heated glances and teasing touches, Mel senses there's something holding him back . . . 
Bennett Hart is grateful to be alive and back home in Mirabelle, Florida. Peaceful and uncomplicated-that's all he's looking for. Until a spunky, sexy-as-hell teacher turns his life upside down. After one smoldering kiss, Bennett feels like he's falling without a parachute. But with memories of his past threatening to resurface, he'll have to decide whether to keep playing it safe, or take the biggest risk of all. 
My Thoughts.
Unstoppable by Shannon Richard is an extremely enjoyable contemporary romance, number three in the Country Roads series, it can be read as a stand alone but to understand the history of the different characters I do recommend starting at the first book Undone.

Full of romance, steamy love scenes and unforgettable characters these books only get better as the series goes along.

Mel O'Bryan is a maths teacher who has enlisted the help of ex-Air Force sergeant Bennett Hart, who has become well known around town for his carpentry skills, for a project building new bookshelves for the schools library incorporating maths into the equation (pardon the pun) to teach kids the importance of maths in everyday life.
Both have a crush on each other, but neither is willing to take the first step, Bennett who is still coming to grips with injuries and the loss of soldiers/friends that were lost in a helicopter crash while on duty in a foreign country which subsequently put an end to his career, is adamant that he won't fall in love with anyone to save himself the trouble of losing anybody else in his life, but as much as he fights it he's drawn to Mel and they soon start a  relationship, but you know in these kind of books that it's never smooth sailing, and they will have hurdles to cross and issues to deal with before they both get their happily ever afters.

The chemistry between Mel and Bennett is hot, they were so well suited to each other and I was intrigued and absorbed with their whole relationship, egging them on the whole way through.

Shannon has a way of making every new book and story in this series fresh and exciting, leaving readers with the need to plow through these books as fast as possible, no matter how many times you tell yourself just one more chapter, before you know it you're finished and you're left wondering where the time went.

I can't wait for the next book, I'm eager and anxious to see what awaits these characters who are quickly becoming near and dear to my heart.

Highly recommended.

I give this 5/5 stars.

All About Shannon

Shannon Richard grew up in the Panhandle of Florida as the baby sister of two overly protective but loving brothers. She was raised by a more than somewhat eccentric mother, a self-proclaimed vocabularist who showed her how to get lost in a book, and a father who passed on his love for coffee and really loud music. She graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor’s in English literature and still lives in Tallahassee, where she battles everyday life with writing, reading, and a rant every once in a while. Okay, so the rants might happen on a regular basis. She’s still waiting for her Southern, scruffy Mr. Darcy, and in the meantime writes love stories to indulge her overactive imagination. Oh, and she’s a pretty big fan of the whimsy.
