Summary: Four months after Ben disappeared through the portal to his home universe, Janelle believes she’ll never see him again. Her world is still devastated, but life is finally starting to resume some kind of normalcy. Until Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay shows up. Somebody from an alternate universe is running a human trafficking ring, kidnapping people and selling them on different Earths—and Ben is the prime suspect. Now his family has been imprisoned and will be executed if Ben doesn’t turn himself over within five days.

And when Janelle learns that someone she cares about—someone from her own world—has become one of the missing, she knows that she has to help Barclay, regardless of the danger. Now Janelle has five days to track down the real culprit. Five days to locate the missing people before they’re lost forever. Five days to reunite with the boy who stole her heart. But as the clues begin to add up, Janelle realizes that she’s in way over her head—and that she may not have known Ben as well as she thought. Can she uncover the truth before everyone she cares about is killed?

After seven long years Ben has finally found his way home. That was exactly four months ago. Janelle can't help but think if she'll ever see him again. She has this hole in her heart that can't be filled with him gone; so she distracts herself by helping the best way she can. She joins Struz's team in the FBI as an intern/temp. She teams up with Deirdre taken on cases of people disappearing. Step in IA agent Taylor Barclay. He's come to tell Janelle some devastating news. Ben is missing and is the prime suspect in a human trafficking case. If he doesn't turn himself in within the next five days everyone he cares about will be executed.

Three words: non stop action. That is exactly what Unbreakable is. There was never a dull moment. Every page you turned kept you on the edge of your seat trying to guess what could possibly come next.

Throughout the whole book you know that Janelle is crushed about Ben leaving, but not once does she put her life on hold. Even when she's in the middle of trying to find him she doesn't let her feelings get in the way of whatever crazy plan Barclay has in store. Believe me when I say that Janelle goes through an emotional, physical and mental roller coaster in Unbreakable so for her to go through all of that & not once falter still amazes me. She has a good head on her shoulders.

The lengths that Janelle would go to, to save the ones she loves is awe-inspiring. She goes through so many traumatic events in such a short period of time that I know for a fact, I wouldn't have been able to stay as level headed as she was.

Taylor Barclay took me by complete surprise! Yes, he might be arrogant, but he is an incredibly strong and loyal character. He was an absolute joy to read. I love the direction Norris took when it came to these two. (No worries, no love triangle here)! Love the interaction & of course the bickering isn't too far away. ;) I wanna say so many amazing things about this kick-ass team, but I don't want to give anything away.

Unbreakable is an action-packed sequel with twists and turns that will have you holding your breath, stressing yourself out while worrying about your beloved characters. If you have any expectation for Unbreakable believe me when I say that Ms. Norris will take those expectations and demolish them!! Go out & get Unbreakable because you absolutely need this book in your life.
