Aside from convincing his three year old daughter the importance of eating vegetables and his older son the necessity of space in relationships, retired MMA world champ, Logan “Unbreakable” Kellar, has one important goal in life right now, and that’s making sure his pregnant wife knows how much he loves her. However, when their family vacation takes several unexpected turns, unforeseen decisions will have to be made. Will Logan be able to take the sucker punches life throws or will everything he knows as family become just a blear?
Blear is another “KO” for Xavier Neal! She instantly pulled me back into the Kellar family, and I was so happy to be with them again. Maxx is expecting their second child, and she and Logan are doing better than ever. He and the entire extended family take a vacation to help Maxx relax before her delivery. As they are just beginning to enjoy their time together, unexpected events occur which will again change the family dynamic in the Kellar household.
Maxx and Logan have grown so much since the first time I met them in Blind. They have conquered so many obstacles together. Neal does a phenomenal job of accurately depicting how exhausting motherhood can be and the guilt we all experience when we feel like we have nothing left to give. I’ve always loved Maxx, but I loved and respected her even more in Blear. She’s such a good “Momma.” We also get to see an incredibly vulnerable Logan. He realizes he isn’t unbreakable, especially where his family is concerned. There is nothing sexier than a man who adores and loves his family and will do everything he can to protect and cherish them.
I loved being with all the characters from the previous novels again. Neal continues to show readers the importance of family, and it’s much more than blood that creates that unconditional bond. It’s the love, joy, and sadness we share that truly makes a family. This is an emotional read, so you might want to have some tissues handy…but be assured…it’s not all sad tears, there are happy ones too. I love being with the Kellar clan anytime I can, and I know their stories will end at some point, but until then, I’m going to gladly soak up every moment I have with them.
