Breakable

Breakable (Contours of the Heart #2)

by Tammara Webber

 

synopsis_thumb2

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.

5 out of 5 stars

I thought this story was FANTASTIC! The uniqueness of the past and present with the alternating POV's from Lucas’s perspective kept it fresh so it never once felt like Easy was rehashed. It was incredible delving into the world of Landon Lucas Maxfield and finding out all the details about him, his life, and growing up.

Getting to learn about Landon's past after a tragic event was so heartbreaking and emotional. It was interesting learning all the details from his young perspective. He went through so much, and coped in so many wrong ways, some of it shocking. I really liked his best friend growing up, how they met, and how their unique bond was formed. There were just so many things I adored, the different elements and relationships, and it all pulled me in.

The present day Lucas – whose story overlaps with Easy - felt so fresh to me even though I knew the story. I really learned and understood why he thought what he did and made the choices he did. It was all so heartfelt and there were so many emotional moments. Even though it was the same story line, it didn't seem like the same story to me, it held its own and I loved it. Of course there is Jacqueline's relationship with Lucas and it was just wonderful to read from his perspective. Not only how he felt about her and how he was drawn to her, but how her situation effected him. To see some of that thinking and to also know what he was feeling and the depth of his love had me completely invested. 

The back and forth with the POV's made it a page turner for me because I kept wanting to know what was going to happen. The buildup of the past and everything coming together was great. I also loved the fact that we got to see Lucas's relationships in more detail and it gave me more of an appreciation for the Hellar's and even Lucas’s father. This book had a bit more heat, from teenage angst and lust to grown up need and love. I thought all the scenes were tastefully written and made sense.

This was an intense and emotional story, extremely well written with fully developed characters and secondary characters. It had an excellent build between the different POV’s. Just brilliant. Loved it!

Amazon | B&N | iTunes | My Review

When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. 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, and failing a class for the first time in her life.

Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex's frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night - but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.

When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he's hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.
