Blurb: Unbreakable Stories: Ian is a collection of short stories following the ups and downs of Ian Pierce and Hollis Banner has they navigate their new relationship and the unique complications of dating with a brunch of overprotective “brothers” determined to guard Ian’s heart.

This collection is more than 38,000 words and contains short stories such as:
Midnight Perp
No Boyfriends Allowed
A Night Off
Taking It Slow
This is Us
And a very special bonus.



This series is definitely on my all time favorites shelf, and I cannot wait for the side series, Ward Security, to release. Probably because I know Lucas and Andrei, Snow and Jude, Rowe and Noah, and, of course, Ian and Hollis, will be making cameos. How could they not? This series and each individual book may have one of the guys as the “main” character, but all of them play prominent roles and this series would not be what it is without all of them. But this little vignette was mainly the focus of Ian and “Holly”.

As per the usual, with these Unbreakable Stories, the scenes are short but funny and sexy. They are like little glimpses into the lives of the men after they have their happy ending. It is truly a wonderful way of catching up and seeing how things are goings, and just big heartwarming moments knowing that there is no drama, just a group of men, who through life experiences and chance became a family.

Probably my favorite part, which actually wasn’t just one single scene, was that Hollis was fully accepted as part of the exclusive family. If he can garner the acceptance of Lucas and Snow then he is set. Hollis is no longer alone or lonely, he has Ian, who is just the hottest and cutest little GQ chef he could ever dream about, and Ian loves him just as much. All of these men have settled, and these unbreakable stories are the authors’ way of letting us readers know that life is still good for our guys and we can take a deep breath now and relax.

Overall Impression: I really liked it!

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
