Booker Gatto is done. Done with women, his old life, all of it. Only the love of his friends in Port Fare keeps him going as he leaves the MET in exchange for the quiet life his new law practice will provide.

Tess Selleck, once as ambitious and determined as she is smart and beautiful, had to leave everything and everyone she loves in San Diego to escape the man who destroyed her dreams and now wants her dead.
Together Booker and Tess find love when they least expect it, until their pasts drive them apart.

Is there a happily ever after for these damaged lovers? Or is the thought of loving and trusting again simply Unbearable?

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I’m so excited that this trilogy has a finale and that Booker gets his turn at romance. Booker has been my favourite character the whole series, and this book makes me very happy. It’s filled with humour and love and adventure. Everything I wanted for a finale.

This was a sweet read. Even though reading about Tess’ past was heartbreaking, her continual urge to be comfortable with herself and her present was very rewarding. Booker was such a strong supporter of Tess that it was impossible not to love them separately and together.

Each of the couples from the previous books were very present in the story, and it was nice to see how their relationships have evolved since their stories. I still find Seth and Maggie to be overly sweet, but Cole and Lilah are adorable.

The book ends with an epilogue that is like a treat for fans of the series. I loved the glimpse into the future of the characters. It was a great way to wrap up the series and satisfy any lingering questions I might have. I loved the series overall, and between finally getting Booker’s story, and having a years later eiplogue, this is my favourite book of the series.

  1. Thank you so much! And thank you for being part of the Unbearable tour!!

  2. I’m not big on NA romance because I’ve read quite a few and they all annoyed me to no end, but I’m also realizing now that more and more good NA books (well, according to my friends xD) are being released, so maybe I should give the genre a try again. Anyway, Unbearable sounds great! Characters are ALWAYS the most important for me in contemporaries, because the author doesn’t need to focus on world building or a hugely complicated plot (most of the time), so it’s great that you loved Booker and Tess here.

    Other characters from previous books were here, too — woot! I read the Pushing the Limits series and in each book, Katie McGarry brought back some of the old cast. It was great! Love it when authors do that.

    Great review, Sarah! I’m glad that this series was great for you from start to finish, though I’m not sure if I’ll give it a try. Either way, it sounds really interesting 😀

    • I think this series starts really close to YA and moves to NA as the characters change. I like the idea of serieses with different narrators. It seems to happen a lot with romance trilogies/series.
