Alexander Hart is leaving his hot young wife for an older woman...if he can score a second chance with his first wife after breaking her heart.UNBREAKABLE HART is a love in midlife, second chance romance.
Alexander Hart’s gorgeous young wife, Stephanie, loves his platinum credit cards more than she loves Alex. She loves his credit cards so much she's already maxed most of them out.
It doesn't take Alex long to realize he made a big mistake when he dumped Amelia, his wife of twenty years, for a much younger woman.
When he leaves Stephanie after less than a year of marriage, Alex vows to do whatever it takes to win Amelia back.
But earning a second chance with Amelia won’t be that easy.
She’s moved across the country to start a new life, which now includes a relationship with a sexy young athlete.
And there’s Amelia’s utter hatred of Alex, and the fact that she’s vowed never speak to him again.
Even if he was the last man on the planet.
It’s going to take a lot more than Alex’s good looks and irresistible charm to heal Amelia’s broken heart.

My Review of
Unbreakable Hart by Karen M. Bryson
My Rating: 3 Stars
This is a very quick and cute short story. It is the fourth book in the Midlife Series, but can be read as a standalone. I have not read any previous books in the series, and had no issues following Unbreakable Hart.
This story is about first love, mistakes, midlife crisis, and second chances. I do wish it was a little bit longer, so some aspects could have been a little more developed.
I enjoyed the plot which involved two people who were married for twenty years and then divorced. Each had moved on with someone completely opposite from their previous spouse. They meet up again, and both realize there is still something there. I know Amelia made Alex run around for a little bit, but I also feel she instantly decided to take him back (which after cheating on her and leaving her, I wish it was a little more resistance or second thought to that decision). I am happy they ended up together in the end though.
I also felt bad for Caleb at first. I was happy to see his happily ever after in the end as well (I do not want to spoil what happened with his character; you will need to read this to find out.)
There were a few things that did not make sense, like Amelia living with her ex-in laws. I know she was trying to get back on her feet after the divorce, but why was she still there a year later? There are some other areas that I also was kinda thrown off by, and this is why I think it if was longer, there could have been some really good deep story lines thrown into the mix.
Overall, this was a fun short story. It is less than 170 pages, so I would suggest giving it a go when you are looking for something short and sweet.
