    This book was one of the most frustrating novels I have ever read! It was free on Amazon and it was well written so overall I don't feel as if I wasted my time or money. The reason I cannot give this book due credit is because the two lead characters were beyond insufferable. They were like mushrooms! The lead, Kate, I despised. The whole time I was reading, I wanted to scream out, "Grow a backbone, stand up for yourself!"

It was free on Amazon and it was well written so overall I don't feel as if I wasted my time or money. The reason I cannot give this book due credit is because the two lead characters were beyond insufferable. They were like mushrooms! The lead, Kate, I despised. The whole time I was reading, I wanted to scream out, "Grow a backbone, stand up for yourself!" While I have never considered myself a feminist, this lead character needs to read up on some "Girl Power". Now, don't get me wrong, eventually she does take a stand but at that time, too little too late. Even in the end I was upset because I just hated her and didn't care for him much either. Ok, let me give Ms. Taylor some credit here. The book is your typical contemporary romance and there are some sweet elements to the story. Some, I'm sure many, will really enjoy this book and will most likely not even notice the fact he wants her to change every freaking thing about her! Do people come around in the end, sure, I mean how can they end up together otherwise? Still though, she was so spineless it killed me! Regardless of whether or not I personally liked the book, I always have to respect authors getting their work out there. It takes a lot of courage. All in all, 2 stars for this one.

    I was in the mood to read a pure contemporary romance, between two normal people who have a simple and sweet love story, and I unexpectedly came across Unbreak My Heart at the right time, when it was free on Amazon.

I quickly downloaded a copy and was looking forward to reading it. The cover of the book itself is so pretty, I make sure I look at it every time I open my Kindle app! Unbreak My Heart is the story of childhood sweethearts, Andre and Kate. Andre's family owns prominent hotels, where Kate's parents worked. Being two years older to Kate, Andre was with her since she was born and they grew up together, sharing their dreams and aspirations. Realizing that the Andre- Kate relationship won't do any good for Andre's professional life, his dad sends him away to boarding school, putting a blotch on the beautiful friendship nourished by both the kids. Andre gets into his new life and gets busy with fulfilling his grandfather's dream of making the Caspian an extraordinary hotel. To avoid the pain of separation, Kate gets in a relationship with Daniel Crowther and has his baby. Later, realizing that only his fame and fortune are what mattered most to Dan, she leaves him and the only hope she has is Andre. From there on starts another wonderful Andre and Kate journey with several ups and downs, that are a natural part and parcel of normal life and that's what makes them realize that they were really never apart from one another. All of their feelings are mutual. The story was absolutely amazing and the book itself, a complete page turner. I found myself admiring both the protagonists, understanding each one's perspective. Kate's daughter, Keiko, brought happiness and some really sweet moments between the three (Andre, Kate and Keiko), who, in a very out of nowhere and completely genuine manner, made for a perfect family. A lovely tale of true love as it transcends from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, the story gets you back to your senses and makes you believe that the concept of soul- mates is, in fact, very much true and the power of love will always overcome practically anything. A sweet, lovely and romantic read, Unbreak My Heart is highly recommended and definitely worth reading! I thoroughly enjoyed EVERY page and am now looking forward to reading more books by author Helen Scott Taylor.

Andre and Kate have to find their way back not only from a physical distance, but across nine years worth of living and heartache. Andre has to “unbreak” Kate’s heart; as a teen he cut out of his life the day after her gave her a ring and promised to marry her. Already on the fringes of social life in her hometown, teenage Kate grieved the loss of her love and best friend. But, she carried on, employing her talents to earn a degree and a good job. She became involved with a man who thrives on attention and wants to be a superstar. For more than four years, they were together, and she became absorbed in him and his life, even if her feelings for him aren’t soul consuming love she’d had for Andre. But, an unplanned pregnancy changed all that. A child didn’t fit into his lifestyle and he wanted her to get rid of the child. She had the baby on her own, even lived in a caravan for a while, despite the media that followed her trying to get photos of her because of her connection to her ex and seeking photos of his child. She sought refuge with her mother, but was turned away at the gate by her stepfather; he didn’t want the inconvenience of the paps she was trying to get away from. That’s where this story picks up. Kate goes to the only place she’s ever thought of as home and the only person who ever stood up for her — Jersey and Andre. She shows up one of the hotels he owns, photographers trailing, begging for help. Seeing the one woman he’d ever wanted with another man’s baby was a shock, but he’s determined not to lose her a second time. Both have issues carried over from childhood, how deeply he hurt her when he dismissed her from his life nine years before, the intevening years. Can they overcome the pain and hurdles, to learn to trust? Can Kate, when it seems Andre is trying to make her into someone else, the proper wife to compliment his lifestyle, not the woman she is? They eventually learn to trust, grow together and think “we” instead of “me” or “me and my baby.” It’s a rough journey, but they get there, eventually. There are plenty of tears shed and frustrations vented along the way. Taylor does heart-ache well. Really tugged at the heart strings to the point a tissue might be in order.

I loved the idea that they lived in this magical place as children, in a medieval English castle on an island, and had special places to go that were just theirs. The memories from their youth that they shared in flashbacks were the best parts of the book. I really believed that the h/h loved each other, and yet the story and characters never clicked for me in a way that made me yearn for them to be together and get their HEA. With regard to the characters, I just couldn't embrace them. Just as they would say something endearing or show some good chemistry, to turn the tide for me so to speak, they would say something to ruin it in the next breath. The overall story of Kate being relentlessly stalked all over England because she was the girlfriend of a one-hit wonder reality star was not believable, nor was the fact she had no ability to care for herself and had to seek out Andre as a last resort for help. And Andre, who could have been so great in the roll of the accepting protector, kept screwing up by making poor decisions and portraying a modern version of Henry Higgins (My Fair Lady) - it was just shameless. That said, not only did the characters not work, but I never felt the story lived up to its potential. Also, the pacing was quite slow until things finally picked up in the middle. The ending was predictable and lackluster. While this book may not have done it for me, please keep in mind that this book was decently rated (3.5 stars on Goodreads) and won awards, so perhaps I missed something.

Really a wonderful story of discovery, keeping true and realizing your dreams.

(after only two books I may be mistaking but I don't think so...) It's a love story so you expect the protagonists to end up together at the end of the book. I've read my fair share of romance novels and I've never felt the way I do when reading Mrs Scott Taylor. When reading her novels, I don't know if the story will have a happy ending. I expect it to but I'm not sure. It was true in this book just as it was in "Oceans Between Us". Andre and Kate have grown into two very different adults. Trials and betrayals have made Kate wary of men and Andre in particular. And Andre seems to be concerned only with appearances and his hotels. It's difficult to see them together especially after reading that Andre wants Kate to change (he does but doesn't at the same time...)But in the end, they do get together. The growing may be fast (only a few pages) but it doesn't seem fake. At least, it worked for me. So if you're looking for a nice well-written book, don't hesitate. You won't regret it !

I've read several romances by Helen Scott Taylor, and I have to say she creates a really good hero who is always more than a pretty face. Throw in a cute little baby, and you get a romance that's irresistible.

I got annoyed after a while because they couldn't decide whether to rekindle what they once had or leave it be and then they kept misunderstanding how the other was feeling but if they had just sat down and talked and got to reknow each other and take more time maybe all the nonsense that went on could have been avoided. I did enjoy the tender scenes with Andre and the baby though. It's rare to have such a sweet interaction between a baby and a man especially when it's not his own!

She runs to her first love who now owns the hotel that she grew up in while her parents were employed there. I enjoyed the setting of the book and the hotel itself sounded amazing but I found both Kate and Andre annoying and couldn’t connect with either of them. I also feel that should have been more included about Dan, the babies biological father. One phone call from him in a place that no one is supposed to have the number to was lame. I certainly hope that the third book in the set is better.

I liked the story and liked how, unlike many other romance stories I read, the man was definitely the one more strongly carrying the torch. Typically the women are carrying the torch and have to drag the men to the altar - in this story, it was clear pretty quickly that Andre had never gotten over Kate. I didn't like how Kate seemed to be "condemning" him for not contacting her when he went away to boarding school but honestly, what men do when they are 16 rarely reflects how they are as men and I was starting to get annoyed by her continued stubborness about his "leaving her". Overall, I liked the love story and I really liked how they ultimately got together in the end (don't want give any spoilers in that regard)

    Unbreak My Heart by Helen Scott Taylor surprised me. I read a lot of romance books, and what surprised me was how romantic the story was.

It almost had the feel of a fairy tale with a grand hotel the ultra rich hero owned and a destitute heroine.

    This book was very disappointing.

    I absolutely liked this book the emotions were raw and invigorating. I was left feeling so vulnerable after this that I literally have to give myself space from reading. Andre is a wealthy hotel owner who is alone and basically a workaholic. Kate is a free spirited woman who does not live by rules and was caught up in her lifestyle mess. When these 2 get together we are left in constant chaos. The story is heartbreakingly brilliant and the chemistry is off the hook.

Overall the emotions rules this story and to me it made it a worthwhile read.

    What a beautiful story. This is the first book I have read of Helen Scott Taylor. There’s a tenderness, almost dreamy quality, to the story that I haven’t read in a long, long time. Actually, the cover perfectly expresses what is inside its pages and the setting reveals each scene with vivid detail. I loved the interaction between Andre, Kate and her child, Keiko. If you want to be swept away into a different world where anything is possible, then you will definitely enjoy this book. It’s sweet, What a beautiful story.

    I love a book that makes me FEEL. And that's exactly what "Unbreak My Heart" does. So many tender, touching moments that will make you laugh, cry and sigh. This story is so much more than "just" a romance. Kate's love for her infant daughter seems even more poignant when contrasted with the way her step-father treats Kate. Second chances, promises and a willingness to make personal sacrifices for those you love adds depth to a heart-warming romance. Highly recommended for fans of Nicholas Sparks I love a book that makes me FEEL. And that's exactly what "Unbreak My Heart" does.

    This was an easy, entertaining read, but I never really got into it the way I wanted to. Maybe it was because I couldn’t really relate to the characters. Instead of feeling as if I was living the experiences with them, I felt as if I was on the outside looking in. It is well written with an original storyline, but it seemed to drag along and bounce around the same path over and over. There were aspects with the baby’s father that I thought would be explored to add drama, but they never were.

    I found Unbreak My Heart so difficult to put down! I was immediately enchanted by the Island of Jersey and the hotel setting. I want to visit. This story about a young single mother trying to find a safe harbor and the childhood friend she still loves was a sweet, poignant one. What do you have to change about yourself, if anything, to exist in the world when you have a child to support? Any lover of traditional Harlequin/Mills and Boon novels will especially adore this novel.

    In Unbreak My Heart, the author has created an enchanting story that explores the possibility that many of us ponder about first loves. What if? I couldn't put the book down. I loved the romantic setting—an ancient castle adorned with dragons and other mythical beings and lush green woods hiding a quaint cottage within. The interactions between Andre and the baby were endearing. I cheered the couple on throughout the book to get past conflicts and barriers to what mattered most.

    This book is fairly decent. It's your classic case of childhood sweethearts gone wrong who end up reconnecting as adults. I really would have enjoyed the history and mythology surrounding Andre's hotel, but it isn't detailed enough. I think if that aspect had been built upon more, this story would have stood out from all the others like it. Same thing with Kate's design skills - it's just not developed enough. Not a terrible read, but not very creative, either. This book is fairly decent. It's your classic case of childhood sweethearts gone wrong who end up reconnecting as adults.

    2.5 Stars. I'm sorry but I couldn't bring myself to like this book. It had potential to be amazing but too many things bugged me. Like how she was to change everything and conform to his standards. Then the fact he goes behind her back. NO NO NO. He would have been kicked to the curb, especially after sharing my private business. 2.5 Stars. I'm sorry but I couldn't bring myself to like this book.

    It was short but sweet but I have to be honest, I expected more. I wanted to know more about that creep Dan. I wanted for Jerry to get his. I also wanted to know about the hero and heroines backgrounds, very little was given. I found that this story was written a bit poorly in some spots as well. Despite everything stated above, it was a good read.

    I recently discovered and like this author quite a bit. She gifted me this book after I read/reviewed A Clockwork Fairy Tale. This gets a 3.5 from me as it was a little less enchanting than the other book. I liked the flawed characters and the overall story arc. My only wish is that her stories were longer I could keep reading for quite a while.
