Review: Breakable by Tammara Webber

Breakable by Tammara Webber
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.

    I wanted to read Breakable because I loved Easy, the romance, chemistry and emotion. It has been awhile since I read the first, which is good because its the same story, we just get Landon's perspective. 

   I fell just as hard for him this time as I did in the first reading. He is so hard working, loyal and working through his pain and past. I couldn't remember details from what exactly happened to him or Jackie's past for that matter so it felt like a fresh read. 

  It was nice to get more of an understanding behind why the Lucas vs Landon wasn't handled better. He is insecure at times and more of a sensitive soul that I would have imagined, but we get to see what has formed him into the person he is now. 

  We get to see Landon as a teen in high school fresh as he is dealing with the monsters of his past. We see his unlikely best friend situation as well as his emotional issues being so fresh and impacting every aspect of his life.

   Things were pretty rough, and his life especially academically was going downhill, and we see the professor and long time family friend step in and give him some challenges and offer to help if he can pick himself up. 

   The ending was nice and I enjoyed reading this new perspective on Lucas and Jacquline's romance as well as what made Landon into who he became.

Bottom Line: Good addition to Easy.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Have you ever fell in lust/love with someone from afar?


  1. I thought it was a good addition too. I liked the new material from Landon's perspective the most in this one. Great review Brandi!

  2. It's been a while since I read Easy. I can't remember much from that book, unfortunately. Glad you liked it!

  3. I've been curious about this one. Like you, I read Easy and really enjoyed it but haven't read this one yet. Glad to hear you enjoyed it though. I'll definitely pick it up the next time I'm in the mood for a romance.


  4. Interesting -- I didn't know he was getting a book. Thanks for letting me know!

  5. OMG, I completely forgot about this book! Thank you for reminding me, Brandi.
    Great review!

  6. Sounds like a great character. I can understand the literary crush.

  7. Hmm, I'm not that fussed with ones that are the same story just from a different perspective, though I'd probably feel different if I'd read Easy, but glad you get more in depth with his character. :) As for the question, not really.

  8. I really like both Easy and Breakable. I read them earlier this year, and whoa all the feels! Now I want to re-read Easy!! Glad you enjoyed Breakable.

  9. Nothing about this novel really speaks to me, it just kind of blends into the New Adult Contemporary background, but I'm not big on this genre to begin with, so what do I know? ;) Do fictional boyfriends count as falling in lust/love from afar?? LOL

  10. I haven't read Easy yet, but want to. I do think that this one would be better once you have forgot some stuff so it doesn't feel like your reading the same story again.

  11. So glad to hear you liked this one too and that you enjoyed Landon's perspective! I really need to read this one soon!

  12. This sounds like a good book. I have heard a lot about the author Tammara Webber so seeing this review definitely had me hanging on to every read. And this does sound like a reasonable romance book and a good sequel. I will have to get my hands on the first book, Easy, sometime.

  13. I still have yet to read Easy but have heard great things, glad you liked this one too! Not sure how I would feel about reading relatively the same story from a different POV, that would be interesting.

  14. Ah yes I remember reviews about Easy! I really should try this one!

  15. I think most teen girls have imagined themselves as in love with someone afar. Lol I know I did. Glad you enjoyed this!

  16. So glad you enjoyed. I really loved getting inside Lucas' head. Great review!

  17. Glad you enjoyed this one! I definitely loved seeing the world through Lucas's eyes. It was very interesting!

    Lovely review!
