Unbroken - A second chance at love story - Episode 1
Five years after my husband’s brutal murder, I am still trying to piece my life back together.
A series of disastrous events sends, not only my life but my son’s life into peril. With everything spiraling out of control, and our safety on the line, I have no choice but to ask my longtime friend, Reid for help.
I realize my mistake too late. Reid is all in, and is taking over my life completely. He looks at me like a woman, not a widow or a mother. He makes we wish for things I know I shouldn’t have.
Just when he opens my eyes to the world around me, and I see the man that has been standing right in front of me all these years - it’s too late. One kiss is all I am allowed before my life takes another painful twist and all thoughts of happiness are torn from my reach.

There is so much to love about this book and it is just the first part! Gah, where to start?! First off it is so unfair for an author to have me wanting to sob before the first chapter even starts! That prologue was so well done I was a goner for this book by the end of it. I was completely drawn in. I never knew such simple words as "End of Watch" could fell me, but it did and I was a mess and for a character I never even knew! This author I have never read before has made me a fan for life after this.
After I recovered from the prologue and was able to start the dang book I absolutely fell in love with it. So much tension. yearning, lust and suspense. The characters are complex and well rounded. I can't wait to get to know them more. Great descriptive work in this book. I was introduced to quite a few characters and it just get so interesting. I would LOVE to tell so much, but what is the fun in that? This book deserves 5+ stars for the emotional pull it has and the feelings it can evoke. The writing is superb. My only complaint was that son seems to speak below his age at times and I have not been able to discern if he has a speech impediment or slight learning disability. Other than that I love this book whole heartily and would very highly recommend it to all. I can not wait for the next books in The Collective series and especially part two to this one.
What are readers saying?
"The Collective, Unbroken, begins by pulling at your heartstrings and then quickly delves into the mystery that will lead you down twists and turns searching for clues. The first book by Riley Edwards is quick paced and grossly engaging as you try to figure out the puzzle of “who done it” before the characters do." - Amazon review
"Loved this story!! It is full of twist and turns and clues!! It kept me on the edge of my chair the entire book! This series is going to be unique and different and definitely full of suspense and mystery." - Amazon Reviewer
"From the very first sentence, I found myself wanting to find out what was going to happen in this book. End of Watch....now my curiosity had the best of me. The characters were well matched and the antics had me laughing. Riley did an exceptional job collaborating this story. The way she put a title at the beginning of each chapter caught my attention and had my mind wondering what was in store. There was definitely a mix of emotion while reading, but I definitely had no trouble reading. In fact, I didn't want to put it down to go to work or sleep. Definitely an amazingly entertaining and well written book. Kudos Riley, well done!!" - Amazon Reviewer
