[Review + Excerpt + Giveaway] Unstable by S.E. Hall

Title: Unstable
Author: S.E. Hall
Genre: Contemporary Romance
You can put up a front… 
but destiny already has your back
After eight years, Henley Calvert is headed home. Back to the family farm and small town she left behind, never to be thought of again.
Too much regret and shame to bear.
But she’s the only one left to see to her family’s legacy, so she must return to Ashfall and face all the ghosts that haunt her.
Gatlin Holt, the family farmhand, awaits her arrival, and lends a hand—in more ways than one. He reacquaints Henley with the lay of the land while helping her heal her soul with a new outlook on life.
Yet every time she thinks some peace may be within reach, Henley hits another roadblock. The biggest of which is Keaton Cash—her childhood nemesis who owns the farm next door.
And no, it’s not a love triangle. That’s impossible when Henley’s heart is closed, incapable of love.

“No, Keaton. I was bored and thought I’d come play ‘tag’ with ‘em for a little while.”
“Then you’re doing a helluva job, ‘cause they’re fixin’ to tag ya back.”
What’s he blathering about now? I turn and look…but refuse to sigh or show any sign of defeat…that some of the cows, are in fact, wandering back into the field I just shooed them out of.
Really? I seem to remember—open the gate to where the food is—they’ll go. So why they’re not cooperating now, in what has to be the first time since Noah let two of them on the Arc, has to be some weird conspiracy just to embarrass me in front of Keaton.
“Let me help you,” he says too kindly, moving to do so before I can refuse.
He uses his hat to swipe at the few remaining anarchist cows, sending them on their way. And Lord knows why, but I take a moment to peruse him…see just exactly how he turned out, physically anyway.
Hair still as black as the Stetson in his hand, jeans still as tight as he’s always played his cards to his chest. Every movement precise and purposeful, nothing wasted, just like he’s always been: good at everything.
Except recognizing value in the most valuable.
Back in the day, he’d been the boy to watch. A football star, a rodeo champ…and watch them they did—every girl in town.

5 Stars!

S.E. Hall is a favorite author of mine. Her words soothe my soul and make mny heart race. From her flowing storylines to captivating plots, this author knows how to bring out the steam and feels in her books. But this book right here? HER BEST TO DATE.

Unstable was a brilliant romance full of passion, intensity, twists, turns, and second chances. I had to pleasure of beta reading this book and what a great honor it was. Watching this book be made, chapter by chapter, and watching how everything unfolded was amazing. Unstable is like NO other book S.E. has ever written. She is going to make you feel while keeping you on your toes.

And then we have the stars of this book.. Henley, Keaton, and Gaitlin. Three complex and complicated characters that are going to steal your heart and rock your world. SHE is coming home. HE has always wanted her. And HE is there to help her move on. It's been years and now everything is going to change. What happens when Henley returns to the one place that she left?

I fell hard and fast for Henley. She was an amazing character that will make your heart bleed. I rooted for her... hard. She needed that happy ending. She needed that unconditional love. She needed to heal and find a way to move on. The steps she took... and the progress she made... I was in awe of her at times.

Then our two men... both intrigued me but Keaton Cash stole my heart. The honesty and loyalty he showed was amazing. The support and guidance blew me out of the water. It has been a long time since I swooned for a book boyfriend like I did with Keaton. But let's not forget Gaitlin... he was a character that intrigued me. He was mysterious and interesting yet no less important.

This book was so so good. If I could give it 10 stars and shout from the rooftops I would. Pick up this book if you are a new fan and fall for S.E.'s words. And loyal fans, get ready for a brand new favorite from our favorite.

I highly recommend this book.

5 Stars!

I was pulled right into this story.  S.E. is one of my go to authors and you know when she puts out a story it is going to be great.  This is different than her other stories but that is not a bad thing.  She makes sure with every one of her stories you fall in love with no one but all of the characters.

This story is about Henley, Keaton, and Gaitlin but don’t worry it’s not a love triangle.  These three have all been through a lot.  Henley seems to be the most broken but can these two fix her and help her finally learn to heal?  This book brings out all your emotions and makes you feel everything in the story. Keaton always wanted Henley but things just got in the way.  Now he wants his chance and will do everything in his power to win her love.  Can he prove no matter what she always though that she was the only one for him?

I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. 

I highly recommend this book.
