Guuuu…please don’t be mad at me for only reading this book now…..u_u (I just learned that this was a sad face :P). Tammara Webber’s Easy was one of the first books I read when I first picked up reading as a serious hobby back in 2012. I definitely remember reading it around the same time I read Jamie McGuire’s Beautiful Disaster. When reading Easy, all from Jacqueline’s POV I fell in love with Lucas/Landon, WHATEVER! Now reading Breakable, his back-story and POV of the events in Easy, I’ve definitely come to love him more as a bad-boy with a golden heart. And from what I recall, I think this is one of the few books I’ve read that take place in the present timeline and have flashback chapters which was very, very interesting.
Landon Lucas had a bright future ahead of him. He was talented, had a loving family to support him. But all of that changed when tragedy struck and Landon’s life changed forever. As a teen, he went through his rebellious phase, getting beat up, getting into fights, and straying away from his one promising future. Now an adult, he’s determined to do everything he can to clean up this mess and help this one girl who he thinks, can save him.
I will admit that this was not one of my favourite reads this year… I don’t know what it was, I liked Easy well enough, I should have liked Breakable. Maybe I just wasn’t in a good place (mentally), when I picked this book up and just felt like I couldn’t get into it. Also, me and my dumb self was really confused between the present POV and the past POV that I didn’t realize the story was being told from Lucas and Landon’s POV. A-DURRRRRR….. I think I realized that like…1/4 into the book.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Lucas/Landon, WHATEVER and I loved getting to know his entire back-story in this book and how it wasn’t just…the entire book just written in his POV with a few extra chapters. That would have been displeasing. I definitely looked forward to reading about his past rather than his present. Almost everything was the same as in Easy, except we got to know what he was thinking as he portrayed both characters.
I don’t know what it is about reading a book in female POV and then male POV but considering I had read the first book over a year before I read the sequel, I found myself trying to remember what happened in Jacqueline’s POV in comparison what was going on in Lucas’. I was so focused on “What happened, what’s different” rather than just getting lost in the book, which is usually why I wait for a series to finish. But when I first read Easy I had no idea Webber would write a followup.
All in all, Breakable is a wonderful companion novel that I think should be read after the first book. Again, maybe I just wasn’t in the mood to read it, or maybe it just felt a little long, but it was still a very enjoyable read, and one of the few books I’ve read that gave a thorough history of the male. Personally, I think I’d like Lucas a lot more than Landon 😉
