UNSTOPPABLE by Shannon Richard Blog Tour

The third book in The Country Roads series 
by Shannon Richard
The hotly-anticipated story of hunky former Air Force sergeant Bennett Hart and feisty elementary teacher Melanie O’Bryan. Melanie  knows life is too short to be afraid of taking chances, and said chance, Bennett, is certainly worth the gamble. 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. But for Bennett, he’s just grateful to be alive and back home in Mirabelle, Florida. Peace and quiet is all that he’s looking for until Melanie walks into his life and turns it upside down. After one smoldering kiss, Bennett feels like he's falling without a parachute. Yet, rivaling their budding romance are dark memories of Bennett’s past, and  he'll have to decide whether to play it safe, or take a risk on the best chance of all: love.

Shannon Richard grew up in the Florida Panhandle 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 BA 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.

Unstoppable is book three in the series, but if you haven’t read the rest, it’s perfectly readable nonetheless. The book starts off with a bang, literally. When Melanie O’Bryan stumbles into a breaking-and-entering, former Air Force sergeant, Bennet Heart, jumps to action. We then learn that he spends the next few months helping her recover and work through therapy. This all takes place in the prologue entitled ‘the calm before the storm’. I really loved the kooky names for all the chapters, it’s cute and unusual.

From that point on he helps her with her teacherly duties, and they travel down a pathway to love. It’s not an easy pathway, as Bennet is still dealing with some issues from his time spent in Afghanistan, but what they find together makes for a very sweet and endearing read.

I do find myself wishing that I had read the previous books, as many of the characters are funny and I wish I had more of a relationship with them.

All in all, it is a charming read that warms the heart on a chilly afternoon.
