Second chances are great but when lies are still not revealed, it could mean losing the best thing in your life.

I have been reading every single book in this series and I love that it's Nathaniel's "Shep" turn for him to finally get the woman he loves, his only true love. Well actually this woman owned his heart when he met her and took it with her the day she left and it's the woman that he never did stop loving. It was thirteen years before they met again and it was like their hearts stopping when they saw each other again. Throughout the other books, they did talk about Hannah and how Shep had a broken heart because of her, but now after reading their story, all I could think about was why in the world didn't they speak to each other. I know that Hannah did try, but come on, she only called him once and because she heard another woman on the line she thought he didn't love her. Then in Shep's head she was the one that left, the one that never looked back, so that is why he went all asshat and drank and slept with loads of women. But enough with that. Let's give you a little insight into this read so you can pick it up and enjoy.

Nathaniel "Shep" Shepard and Hannah Sterling spent three wonderful months together and they each gave each other their hearts. She gave herself to him completely but she ended up leaving him. They never forgot each other and Hannah did try to get ahold of him but because of insecurity or something else, she didn't tell him what was going on. So she ended up living her life and went to school, but when her grandmother passes away she finds out that she left her an inn in Mirabelle, Fl.

Hannah can't believe it she's back in the inn where Shep came into her room and fooled around. Now she was in his place of business and when she saw him, it was like seeing a hunk of a man. All the feelings that she had came back. Shep had a rough time when Hannah left him that he went and got drunk and slept with countless amounts of women, but when his grandfather passed away he vowed to change. The first time he thought of "just this once, he could have a little bit of fun" was the night he saw Hannah again. He couldn't believe she was back and she was even more beautiful than thirteen years ago.

Shep knew what he wanted--her. He loved her. He went to her home every morning and brought her coffee and he made her breakfast. Shep was a very, very sweet man that anyone would love to have. But no matter what he did, they ended up fighting. She was giving him so many mixed signals that I didn't understand her. I know she was scared to fall in love with him again but the chemistry that they shared was electrifying. They were meant to be with each other but I also understood her wariness. She believed she was the only one that had a broken heart but she had no idea that Shep also had a broken heart. They needed to speak about the past and their feelings but that is not the only thing. Hannah has a job in New York; she is going to be leaving again; and she has a devastating secret that she's been keeping from Shep. Can Shep make her see that they can be together? When everything is exposed by the gossip column and the truth is told, can Shep and Hannah stay together?

UNFORGETTABLE is the fourth installment of Country Roads. This was an excellent read that had me in tears; it had me laughing and it had me all hot and bothered. The chemistry between them is not only sensual, it's hot and hot. I loved how Ms. Richard brought this story together and how easy it was to follow. I do have to say that at times this story was tough to read not because of what you may think but because I wanted to hurt Hannah sometimes and then there was Shep and at times I wanted to jump him. He was too yummy to resist. The characters had such depth in this flawlessly written story that had everything I love in a story.

This was a passionate, emotional page turner that I truly recommend.
