Author: Tammara Webber

Published: May 6th 2014



He was lost and alone. Then he found her.
And the future seemed more fragile than ever.


As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

After reading Easy and learning that the second book was from Lucas' POV, I was a little excited to see his side of the story and getting to know him more. Each chapter is divided in two sections: Landon - before College, and Lucas - during college. It gave me greater insight to see what Lucas was like as a teenager and how he lived life after the incident.

 
Reading the Landon section's of the book were probably my favourite parts. It was all new material and I was able to see the struggles that he went through and the breaking point as to were he decided to turn his life around. Things were hard for him and he never really dealt with the indecent correctly and bottled all those feelings away. He struggled in school and in the end was on his way to self destruction.

The Lucas sections were mostly parts that I read in Easy and they were quickly summarised. It was good to see Lucas' POV and his struggles about deceiving Jacqueline. Not a lot of new material was introduced, I just got to see his feelings and thoughts about the same situations. So to me, it felt like the Lucas parts of the book dragged a little. It took 67 pages to get to part where Jacqueline had Lucas sweep into her life, where in the first book it happened in the first chapter. However, I could see how both sections tied his story together.

Overall, I really enjoyed Breakable. I saw the depth of pain that Lucas has had to endure and getting to know him better made him a character that is going to take a long time to forget. I enjoyed the deeper message in the whole book, as it showed me that we really shouldn't harbour the guilt of something that really isn't your fault. Both Easy and Breakable are insightful stories that can break your heart, but if you are strong enough you can get past it and live again.

  1. I haven't read any Tammara Webber before, but Easy and Breakable are both on my TBR :) I think I'd really enjoy to have more or less the same story from another character's point of view. I loved that in some of CoHo's books.
    Great review, Naomi!

  2. I loved this series. In Breakable, I loved how it wasn't word for word over situations where we already saw what happened in Easy. Ugh, I've totally seen books where it's word for word, and it would drive me crazy. Either way, I adored these two books and they are among my favorites! Terrific review, I loved your point of view!

  4. It seems like books with messages are becoming rarer and rarer nowadays, so I like that the author was able to incorporate one into Breakable. I'm also a fan of time jumping when it provides more insight into the characters. Lovely review!

  5. I'm glad that there was something 'extra' for you to enjoy in Breakable. Sometimes a companion book like this doesn't really add anything to the story. And I love that there is a message...I am always looking for some deeper meaning in a story. I think sometimes I may find it when it wasn't the author's intention. LOL

  7. Companion novels are so hit and miss for me, so I'm glad that you enjoyed this one. I think I'll definitely look into it - I've always felt I needed just a little more from these characters than what we got in Easy!
