Ta-Mara LeBreaux finds escape reading a love story of a couple who get together despite all odds. Yet she never expected to be caught in her own tale—the outcome of which will be up to the fickleness of destiny. A man appears in her life and all signs point to the fact that he is the same Levi from her book—a book she has read countless times. She must be crazy… However when the impossible becomes reality, Ta-Mara is faced with Levi who has come from between the pages to her world. He’s all her dreams come true. This man is all too real and sexy as hell. But is she living on borrowed time with Levi, who can’t possibly be hers?

By opening first her home then her heart to a stranger, she shows him the depths of her character. Loving her is easy but being able to keep her by his side is his greatest challenge. Or is it…? There are some things that go beyond time and space. When love meets time, nothing can get in the way of unbreakable bonds.

 

Review: Unbreakable Bonds is a mix of modern and historical that comes together to deliver one compelling tale. This time traveling romance informs, entertains, and romances. I don’t want to reveal too much with this story. So I will simply say there are some wonderful twists, and turns, No matter the time zones, these two had a very real connection that could be felt through the computer. It made me think about the concept of soulmates, and ask myself some interesting questions about love.

I loved the lead hero, Levi. A mix of old world gentleman, and modern man learning who he is he was irresistible. With his manners, particular way of speaking, and passion, he was very unique. He reminded me of Ichabod Crane from the television show, Sleepy Hollow, all effortless charm, and awkwardness. I enjoyed following him on his journey to fit in and come to grips with what happened to him in his past. Not all of the moments were pleasant, but they were real, and full of emotion.

Ta-Mara was a sassy, strong, and intelligent heroine. I loved the way she approached Levi, and the way she struggled to do what was right. I love a strong female lead in touch with her needs. She had a confidence I found intoxicating, and refreshing. It also helped that she as a major bookworm. It made it even easier to connect with her.
