Review: 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.

5 Wonderful Stars!

Review by Lisa Kane

Easy was the story of Jacqueline and Lucas from her POV. Breakable is actually from both Landon's and Lucas' POV. Landon's memories and recollections are told mostly after his mother's death until he is in college. Then he is free to be someone else, to be Lucas to be the man that can break free from the stigma of his mom's murder, even if he never allows his own mind that same luxury. 

From the moment Lucas saw Jacqueline he was drawn to her. He never believed he could have anything with her, he has the once in a while hook up, but love-no that isn't a feeling that he can allow in his life. And she is special, even if she it tied to a jack ass of a boyfriend. He watches, and sit back and sees how her boyfriend is ready to make a move with other girls. The whole time he thinks to himself, how could anyone with her, want someone else? When she is free and he is needed to tutor her, his whole Landon the tutor, versus Lucas the student pulls at his conscience. The deeper he becomes involved in her life, the more guilt he feels, and the more fear he has, that once she learns the truth, things between them will be over. 

This story goes into so much depth about Lucas' guilt over his mother's death, his love for his grandfather  and his estrangement from his father. These are the relationships that molded him, especially his teenage years filled with drugs, mindless sex and bouts of anger. Always there, just waiting for it to simmer to the top is his anger. Jacqueline brings out the nurturer in him that he has repressed.

Lucas may be damaged and broken, but he has so much love and such a big heart, just waiting for the right person holding the key to open it again. I loved this book as much as the first one. It was worth the wait!
