Unstable is full of Love, Loss, and Self-Discovery.
I read A LOT of books. I set my Goodreads challenge at 70 books. It’s April and I’m at 34 books. That doesn’t include the books I’ve re-read. S.E. Hall’s Unstable was one that left me with a book hangover.
I kept thinking about Henley, Keaton and Gatlin. If you’re a reader you know the feeling that I’m talking about, book hangover.
Henley returned to her hometown fort the first time in eight years after the death of her mother. She hadn’t spoken to or seen her mother in those years. Coming back to the farm brought back a lot of pain and unwelcome memories for Henley.
When she arrived Gatlin, a hired hand, greeted her. He became more than just her friend, but her crutch. He helped her through the many emotions of being back at the farm.
Keaton Cash was the boy next door that she always saw as her enemy. She thought he was a nuisance and was not happy to see him when she got home. Keaton Cash didn’t care how hard Henley tried to push him away. He pushed back refusing to let her continue to shut him out.
It’s so hard to review this story without giving too much away. There are some twist and turns that I did not expect. There’s only one chapter from Keaton’s point of view and it blew my mind. Hall was clever in the execution.
There’s so much to this book. I won’t ruin it by going into great detail. I think that it is worth the read. It isn’t a cookie cutter second chance or enemy to lover romance. It deals with issues of love, loss, mental health, and guilt. The title Unstable goes deeper than you would even guess.
