Book Review : Unbroken (Silver Creek, #3) by Maisey Yates

Silver Creek, #3
by Maisey Yates

August 5th, 2014

Berkley Sensation



In the latest Silver Creek romance from USA Today bestselling author Maisey Yates, former rodeo star Cade Mitchell may never ride again, but there are still a few things he can do—like care for the woman he loves. 

Amber Johnson has always thought of her best friend Cade as an older brother. A really hot older brother. But growing up in foster care, she learned to rely only on herself. As much as she likes stealing glances at Cade’s chiseled jaw and painted-on jeans, she resents the way he swoops in like a superhero to fix things for her. 

When former rodeo rival Jim Davis starts harassing Amber to sell her grandfather’s failing ranch, Cade swoops in once again. To send Jim on his way, Cade pretends to be Amber’s boyfriend, moving in to help fix the place up. With her grandfather behind the idea, Amber and Cade have to keep the charade going—whether she likes it or not. 

But as their make-believe romance starts to heat up, maybe Cade and Amber will learn to admit that they both could use a little saving…

After I finished reading Unbroken, by Maisey Yates, which is the third installment in the Silver Creek Series, it left me wanting for more! It was beautifully written, a friends-to-lovers story that warmed my heart and left me cheering for Amber and Cade until the very end! This was my first time reading a book by this author, and I loved it!

Friends-to-lovers stories are my favorites! No matter how many books have been written about it, I can't get enough! Each story that I read is like a breath of fresh air and the characters always end up stealing my heart. Most of the time the story is predictable, and I still I end up falling in love every single time!

Amber and Cade were awesome!!! When I started reading their journey I was hooked from the first page! Their banter is crazy funny, I loved the way they helped each other out and once the sparks starting flying ... Oh my God! ---> Bacon <--- That's all I'm sayin'!!!! *Fans Self*

Amber is taking care of her grandfather while trying to save the ranch that he's worked so hard for. Cade is trying to rebuilt his life after a tragic accident that left him with emotional and physical scars.  When an unexpected visitor starts causing trouble for Amber, Cade pretends to be her boyfriend. From that moment on, their friendship will be tested. 

The Mitchells have been through a lot in the last couple of years and the surprises keep coming! I was intrigued by their story and how they overcame the obstacles that life has thrown their way. Cade knew that he had Amber's support, but getting closer to his siblings, and accepting what he could not change was a big achievement for him. What I loved the most about this story is how honest Amber and Cade were with each other. They have known each other since their teenage years, and the more time they spent together, the more their friendship grew. It was beautiful to see their relationship develop into something more. 

Before I started reading Unbroken, I was a bit concerned that I would not connect with the other characters from the previous books. But, I was so wrong to feel that way! The author did an amazing job at making me feel connected with them! I got to find out how these couples found each other, but it does not in any way take away my curiosity about them. After reading Unbroken, I want to read their stories even more! I will definitely add the other books of this series to my TBR list so I can revisit really soon!


I give, Unbroken, by Maisey Yates 4 fun, engaging, romantic, friends-to-lovers stars!

  1. I really enjoyed Unbroken too. Great review, Mikki!

  2. I'm a huge friends to lovers fan too. Nice.

  3. It is nice to have those stories where the couple eases into a relationship rather than going full-tilt at the beginning. Sounds like a sweet book and currently I like sweet.


We love to hear your thoughts, and appreciate you stopping by :)
