Breakable (Contours of the Heart #2) by Tammara Webber

ABOUT THE BOOK

(From Goodreads)

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

MY THOUGHTS

Breakable is the companion novel to Easy. The story is told from Landon Lucas Maxfield’s perspective. Within his perspective there are two perspectives, one as Landon, before he met Jacqueline Wallace and the second as Lucas when he joined college and noticed her.
Landon and Lucas though the same person, are quite different. Landon is a confused, raging boy who is lonely, doesn’t know how to deal with his mother’s gruesome rape and murder, and so resorts to drugs, sex and the occasional bashing someone up. Lucas is a reformed bad boy, who works hard and abides by the rules but still blames himself for his mother’s death. Both of them have tattoos are piercings, which make them oh so hot.
Lucas is head over heels about Jacqueline, the way he would almost stalk her reminds me of my schoolgirl crushes. His stalker like behavior saves her from what could have been a horrible tragedy, and in the book Easy, that’s where Jacqueline’s story begins. But with Lucas we get a little background to the event.
This book contains explicit sex, and a lot of it. It’s all tastefully written, so I think it’s worth reading. The things is, Lucas and Jaqueline spend most of their time bonding ‘physically’. They don’t really seem to talk a lot to each other or connect on a mental level. How long can that kind of relationship last?
Lucas is an alpha male, it’s pretty obvious; but not in an Edward Cullen / Christian Gray –I’m-going-to-dominate-you way. He doesn’t treat Jacqueline like a child or force her into anything. He respects her. The words ‘she obeyed’ were thrown around quite frequently though. I’m probably just over analyzing.
Also both Jacqueline in easy and Lucas in Breakable seem to have the same lingo, maybe words like ‘asswipe’ are commonly used in the United States, I don’t know. I think more attention should’ve been paid to differentiate their narrative styles.
On the whole I really did like the book, I think Tamara Webber is an excellent writer. She pulls you into the story and you just don’t want to put the book down until you finish.
Rating : 4/5
By the way, for those of you who thought the guy on the covers is cute, his name is Dusan Novakovic. You may now stalk him
