Unbreakable (The Dalton Gang Series #2) Review


The notorious Dalton Gang once ran wild through their home town of Crow Hill, Texas. Now they own the run-down Dalton Ranch—and they work hard to keep it up. But when the right women come along, they still know how to play hard too…

Casper Jayne turned his back on Crow Hill nearly 20 years ago for a career in the professional bull riding circuit. Now he’s back—and Faith Mitchell is having a tough time thinking about anything else. She’s had a crush on him since high school, when he was part of her brother’s gang—and off limits. Since then, Faith has learned not to take risks. And Casper’s reckless, hard-living ways are causing her to think twice about trying to make the fantasies she has for this powerfully physical man come true.

Casper said he’d wait for a sign—but Faith is determined not to give him the satisfaction. Then an unexpected encounter finally penetrates her reserve, and the two of them ignite an intense passion. Faith finds herself holding on for a wild ride that breaks all the rules. But when the hot affair burns out of control, Faith will have to learn to take the reins…

So now I need a cold shower.  I just finished reading the second installment to The Dalton Gang Series and I have to say it was hot hot hot hot hot!  Casper is dreamy.  Albeit in a wild sex driven way!

I loved going back to Crow Hill.  The place sounds dreary as hell, everyone is struggling, yet I doubt there is a town more supportive or sex crazed as this one!  We saw how Arwen and Dax hooked up and found happily ever after in the last book.  Now we get introduced to Casper and Faith.

Faith is very closed off.  Probably the most closed off I have ever seen a heroine in any book.  She has a past, like so many do, that makes her skeptical of ever finding true love and certainly from ever taking a risk. She is very planned out and coordinated   She doesn't allow too much in terms of taking a chance.  Until of course a handsome cowboy comes back into her life.  She is responsible for his and his partner's (one being her older brother Boone) financial future.  A job she takes quite seriously.

Casper is hell on wheels.  A former bull rider, he is no stranger to taking a chance and risking it all.  But his past ensures that he doesn't really care about what happens to him.  He has inherited a ranch that is ridiculously hard labor, a house that holds more heartbreak and anger, that is crumbling down, and no money to really fix anything.  Not to mention he finds a kid in his house that needs a father figure and feels obligated to give him one.  Our sweet Casper is in over his head!  Then there is Faith, and she could end up being his everything.

Faith has the ability to fix the money issues.  And so with her help he restores his childhood home to a glory it hasn't seen in years.  But more than fix the money problems, Faith has helped him heal.  Taking on the kid, Clay, has helped him heal.  And towards the end of the book, we see a very settled and happier Casper.

Faith on the other hand, being as closed off as she is, takes a bit more time.  In my opinion she has twisted what happened in her past up so much in her head, that she has made it so much larger than it should have been.  We all make stupid choices when we are young.  Her choices had a bad consequence, but hardly one she can be blamed for.

These two together made it impossible to focus on any other novel right now.  They were all over each other, all the time.  It was one of those books where, I felt like everytime I came back to it, they were having sex again.  In all sorts of fun places and all sorts of different ways.  And really that is what the Dalton boys are known for!

It's a great series.  Boone's story is next!

I give it 4 lipsticks!
