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.

Elena Reviews: Easy by Tammara Webber

When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she’s single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, stalked by her ex’s frat brother, and failing a class for the first time in her life.

Her econ professor gives her an email address for Landon, the class tutor, who shows her that she’s still the same intelligent girl she’s always been. As Jacqueline becomes interested in more from her tutor than a better grade, his teasing responses make the feeling seem mutual. There’s just one problem—their only interactions are through email.

Meanwhile, a guy in her econ class proves his worth the first night she meets him. Nothing like her popular ex or her brainy tutor, Lucas sits on the back row, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. At a downtown club, he disappears after several dances that leave her on fire. When he asks if he can sketch her, alone in her room, she agrees—hoping for more.

Then Jacqueline discovers a withheld connection between her supportive tutor and her seductive classmate, her ex comes back into the picture, and her stalker escalates his attention by spreading rumors that they’ve hooked up. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

Author Recommendation: Mature Young Adults (language, drinking, sexual situations)

 

Seriously, I loved, loved, loved this book! This was my first story by Tammara Webber and I was completely enchanted. It falls under the category of Mature Young Adult/ New Adult and for me it was a breath of fresh air as far as this genre goes. I usually don’t read a lot of young adult novels,  but every now and again true gems are found in the said genre and “Easy” is an exceptionally brilliant novel.
