Elena Reviews: Breakable by Tammara Webber

 

breakable

 

The synopsis:

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.

Tammara Webber, the New York Times bestselling author of Easy, now delivers a daring and entirely new perspective on love, and why falling for it is beyond our control.

A college age, New Adult romance.

My rating: 5 glittering stars

My review:

She was a lure I couldn’t resist, though she had no way to know it.” — Breakable

BREAKABLE. IS. AWESOME. I feel like I should write this whole review in shouty caps, because if you don’t pick this book up, you’re seriously missing out on one of the most wonderful, emotional and touching novels out there. When Tammara Webber announced that she was writing Easy from Lucas’s POV, I was uber excited mainly for two reasons: 1) Easy is one of those books that affected me in ways I can’t even explain, and having it told from the male character’s point of view was the icing on the cake. 2) I had several unanswered questions when I finished Easy — I didn’t understand some of Lucas’s reactions in several scenes, and I wanted an answer.

Breakable not only does answer all these questions but it also gives the reader so much more. Yes, because this is NOT a retelling of Easy. Far from it. It’s like reading a sequel. Tammara Webber didn’t just rewrite the scenes from Easy by changing the POV. She went beyond that — she wrote them showing Lucas’s feelings rather than reporting the dialogue, and for me it was like reading a new book. Furthermore there are so many new scenes that weren’t in Easy, scenes that are like pieces of the puzzle that fit perfectly and give the reader the whole picture of the events. We get to learn how Lucas really fell for Jacqueline, when he became so attracted to her, why he pulled back in some of the intimate moments…

“Her trust would be hard-won, because she was afraid of being hurt again, but I could win it. I knew, from these few seconds of staring and from the one time I’d held her that she would respond to me, under me.” –Breakable

Plus the chapters alternate between the POV of Landon (Lucas in his teenage years) and Lucas’s POV in the present, and we get to know him more intimately. We see how he coped with his mother’s sudden and tragic death, the bad decisions (and there are many of them) he made, the relationship with his father… By reading about Lucas’s past, we are able to admire all the more the amazing guy he chose to become. Because it was a choice: Lucas proves that no matter how deep the hole you fell into is, if you want to start again, you can get up and walk again. I already loved Lucas, but thanks to Breakable I fell for him even more.

“Sometimes you have to forget about explanations or excuses and leave people and places behind, because otherwise they will drag you straight down.” –Breakable

I can’t recommend Breakable enough! Thank you Tammara Webber for the amazing gift you gave your readers!

**ICYMI, you can read Tamie’s beautiful review HERE**

More beautiful passages:

“Where she was concerned, all logical thought was useless.”

“No, beautiful girl. I want to pin you to this mattress and please you in every goddamned way possible for the rest of the night.”

“Luck could be earned and created. It could be discovered. It could be regained. After all – I’d found this girl. I’d found my future. I’d found forgiveness. My mother would have been happy for me…”
