I can’t even begin to describe my excitement in getting to read Breakable early. I LOVE Easy, it’s definitely one of my favorite books of all time and one I feel that every reader needs to read and own. Today, we get Breakable, we get a one on one with Lucas and get to know HIS story.
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.
Breakable was everything I thought it would be and then some.
I think I love it more than Easy *gasp* I absolutely LOVED being inside Lucas’s head! While Breakable follows the same timeline of Easy it is NOT a retelling. I repeat, it is not just a re-telling of Easy. However, I do highly suggest reading Easy first, here’s why, #1) it’s an AWESOME book that is a staple that every reader should read. #2) In Breakable we get an alternating past/present story from Lucas where we learn about his childhood and teenage years but with the present day chapters, that follow the Easy timeline, some situations would be better understood and appreciated by reading Easy first. Breakable captivated me from the very first page, I was torn between speeding through it and taking my time. Taking my time won out; I needed to savor every word, thought, feeling and emotion expressed by Lucas. His story wasn’t a pretty one, it was filled with a hurt, sorrow and a pain almost impossible to describe but Tammara did it. Not only did she do an excellent job describing it, she did an excellent job of making me feel that hurt, sorrow and pain. She also made me feel hope for him once Jacqueline entered his world. I loved seeing his feelings for Jacqueline develop and seeing him fight his inner conflict to do the right thing or follow his heart. Despite already knowing the outcome I still found myself cheering and rooting for the two of them to find their happy endings. Tammara Webber completely gave his story justice and gave readers an AMAZING follow up to Easy<3
*paperback provided by the publisher for review*
Tammara is a hopeful romantic who adores novels with happy endings, because there are enough sad endings in real life. Before writing full-time, she was an undergraduate academic advisor, economics tutor, planetarium office manager, radiology call center rep, and the palest person to ever work at a tanning salon. She married my high school sweetheart, and she’s Mom to three adult kids and four very immature cats.
