Unbreakable (The Diamonds Book 1) by Tee Smith
This is the first book I’ve read by Smith. Unbreakable had me hooked from the first line. Ripper and Erin’s story will have you wanting more.
Erin loves working at the free clinic. After losing her mom she threw herself into work. She tends to Ripper and can’t stop thinking about him. The quote I chose for Erin is: “No, it’s not okay. No one could ever beat me up about what happened to Salinda as much as I beat myself up. You went to prison for what you did and lost your whole family. My family loved me, supported and protected me. You were just a scared little boy. I can’t even imagine what it must have been like for you.”
Ripper is part of the Diamonds. They built their town and now it’s being threatened. When he goes to the clinic to get stitched up he meets Erin. The quote I chose for Ripper is: “I’ve done my time, Erin. It will never be enough. I will always have to live with what I’ve done. Ten years in prison was only the beginning of the punishment. I get it. I don’t deserve you. I don’t deserve anything. I’m sorry, darlin’. You’ve got to believe me; I’m so sorry.”
Highly recommended for Romantic Suspense lovers.
