Publisher's Summary

A delicious, sharp novel about a woman who jets off to France after her perfect marriage collapses, putting the broken pieces of herself back together while rediscovering her own joie de vivre - a lust for life, art, and steamy sex. 

“Artful, feminist, and emotionally gripping. The Unbreakables is a remarkable tribute to a woman’s strength in the face of heartbreak and adversity.” (Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient)

The worst birthday ever might just be the gift of a lifetime....

It’s Sophie Bloom’s 42nd birthday, and she’s ready for a night of celebration with Gabe, her devoted longtime husband, and her two besties and their spouses. Dinner is served with a side of delicious gossip, including which North Grove residents were caught with their pants down on Ashley Madison after the secret online dating site for married and committed couples was hacked. Thirty-two million cheaters worldwide have been exposed...including Sophie’s “perfect” husband. To add insult to injury, she learns Gabe is the top cheater in their town. 

Humiliated and directionless, Sophie jumps into the unknown and flees to France to meet up with her teenage daughter, who is studying abroad and nursing her own heartbreak. After a brief visit to Paris, Sophie heads out to the artist enclave of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. There, for the first time in a long time, Sophie acknowledges her own desires - not her husband’s, not her daughter’s - and rediscovers her essence with painful honesty and humor, reawakening both her sensuality and ambitions as a sculptor.

As she sheds her past and dodges obstacles traveling off the beaten path, Sophie Bloom is determined to blossom. Allowing her true self to emerge in the postcard beauty of Provence, Sophie must decide what is broken forever...and what it means to be truly unbreakable.

SOPHIE BLOOM IS TRULY UNBREAKABLE!!

I enjoyed this story. Sophie is completely devestated when she discovers her husband's infidelity. She has to figure out how to put her life back together. There are some racy moments in the story, but overall a good story.

What an awesome story. A must read.

I liked the accent that the story was read it. It was easy to follow the changes. The story was predictable and unpredictable making it great. I can’t wait to go to Paris someday. Also so relevant to me for what I’m going through in my own life. A must read.

The Unbreakables

A good book with many twists. Maybe a bit too long. The author had a mechanical voice.

Over the top, melodramatic

Maybe I wasn't in the mood for this story, but I thought it was truely awful. The characters were all self absorbed, selfish, and unrealistic. I had zero sympathy for any of them. I have to admit, I couldn't finish it.👎👎👎👎
