Review: Breakable by Tammara Webber

BreakableWell Holy shit balls! This story was fantastic. This book broke me in ways no other has–I can’t look at my thirteen-year-old son the same way now. I related to Lucas’ pain in the end in a very personal way, as I always do when children are involved. I actually cried, and that doesn’t happen very often. I just absolutely loved this book, loved, loved, LOVED the ride inside the minds of Lucas and Landon (I think there’s an identity crisis there somewhere, but it worked.) Usually, the back and forth narrative irritates the heck out of me, and there were a few times when I groaned in frustration because I wanted to keep going with the here and now, or the there and back then, but having adored Easy the way I did, I couldn’t get through this book fast enough, and not because I wanted it to be over, but because I devoured it with smiles, tingles, and tears.

So why only 4 stars? Really, I’d have to give 4.5. My only issue was the magic of Jacqueline–it was missing. Beyond the few very yummy steamy scenes, I didn’t connect with them as a couple the way I did in Easy, and that’s why I strongly recommend you read Easy before Breakable. Breakable, to me, is the whipped cream on the sundae. It gives you a fuller picture of Lucas’ story, and us Easy fans will be the first to admit how much we love that tortured guy.

Definitely read Breakable if you’ve read Easy. I’ll admit, I’ve never read a companion novel, but if I had to wager a guess, this wasn’t your typical companion story, certainly not a boring re-telling from another POV. This is a whole new glimpse into a story untold from another POV, delving into the history of that character to bring more meaning and sense to the present, but without having read Easy, you’re missing out on the magic–in both books.

Check out Easy and Breakable on Amazon.
