    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    Story
    "Confused who is hotter - Lucas or the narrator!!"

    STORY (new adult romance) - I really loved this story. Book 1, "Easy," is Jacqueline's story. This second book is from Lucas' POV. They both cover pretty much the same territory but, since this is told from Lucas' male perspective, it didn't seem repetitive. Lucas has the sexual preoccupation you might expect of a college student, but he's also very sensitive and romantic. First he's obsessed with meeting Jacqueline and then he just wants to love, protect and cherish her. And did I mention he's HOT? (swoon!)

    For those who have not heard "Easy," Landon Lucas Maxfield (main character) is emotionally complicated. His happy childhood was interrupted by a horrific event when he was 13, after which time he began going by his middle name and became a partying "bad boy." This book alternates between two timelines - one about Landon, beginning immediately after that event and continuing till high school graduation. The other timeline is told by Lucas, beginning sometime during his senior year in college when he meets Jacqueline. And, yes, by the end of this book you will have answers to all the questions about Lucas that were left unanswered in "Easy."

    PERFORMANCE - One of my new favorite narrators. His voice is sexy, sensitive and emotional. He does a great job with the voice of younger Landon, an old man and Landon's country-boy best friend. And when he does the emotional flashback Lucas has of the horrible event, wow! Just wow.

    OVERALL - This book contains quite a bit of cursing, especially F-bombs. There's several kissy-feely scenes and some fairly explicit sex scenes as well. There's some fighting between students and also rape. It's Book 2 in the series and can stand alone, but I'd highly recommend you start with Book 1 and hear Jacqueline's story first. Recommended for females of any age who are old enough to deal with the subject matter and have an affinity for bad boys.

    Story
    "Unbreak my heart, Lucas!"

    Easy fans rejoice: Breakable is finally out! Easy is Jacqueline’s story, about a college girl with a broken heart who is reeling after an attack. She falls for her savior, Lucas, who has his own battle scars. In the second book in the Contours of the Heart series we get Lucas’ backstory. Plus, we get to see the events from Easy from Lucas’ perspective. This book answers all your burning questions about Lucas, and if you are a Lucas fan (*raises hand*) this book is for you!

    Breakable is two stories in one, and Landon/Lucas are two halves of the same coin. Landon’s chapters deal with the past, up until he leaves for college. Lucas’s chapters cover the present day, including the college years and his relationship with Jacqueline. If you’ve read Easy you know that there is some terrible tragedy in Landon’s past, and hearing about it from Landon’s perspective is about as heart-wrenching as you might expect. Landon’s life unraveled in a heartbeat and that’s spelled out in all its glory. The stories hinted at from Easy are fleshed out and we see the journey that led him to be the man he is with Jacqueline.

    It is so cool to get Lucas’ perspective of the events in Easy and to fill in some of the blanks about this mysterious tattooed and pierced “bad boy.” I have to say all my questions about Lucas were answered in Breakable. Some of the things I wondered about from Easy: Does Lucas have any friends (besides Francis the cat?) How did he end up at the nightclub dancing with Jacqueline? Why did he keep up the Lucas/Landon deception for so long? Why was Lucas so distant before winter break? And did Lucas know about “Operation Bad Boy Phase?” All of these questions and more are answered in Breakable.

    Every Lucas/Jacqueline scene is included in Breakable, plus bonus scenes. You don’t have to read (or re-read) to Easy first because a lot of the story is covered, though it is through different eyes. I did re-listen to Easy recently though and didn’t feel like Breakable was repetitive. It was so interesting to me to see the story through Lucas’ pov, and Lucas’ voice is very distinct from Easy’s Jacqueline.

    Zachary Webber performs this audiobook, and I’m familiar with his narration from Red Hill, A Beautiful Wedding, and Maybe Someday. Fun fact: Zachary is Tammara Webber’s son! So, that must have been a benefit to be able to ask mom about a characters’ accent, or pronunciation or what have you. Webber has a throaty voice that’s a good fit for Lucas. He has to go through a full range of emotions to perform Lucas/Landon’s parts. Webber does a great job of conveying Mr. Maxfield’s emotional landscape in Breakable, from his childhood years to the present day. He has a wide range of voices in his repertoire, from Lucas’ calm and cool voice, to the various girls/women in his life, and he does a mean “old man” voice. I sped up the audiobook a little because I was impatient to get through the book, though Webber’s pacing was steady and consistent throughout. I’d listen to this audiobook again.

    This series is essential New Adult reading and I'm eager to see what Tammara Webber has cooked for us next.

    "Mr. Webber is my new favourite narrator, so sexy!!"
    What did you love best about Breakable?

    The narrator was heaven. Lord, he could make anything sound sexy, he was that good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breakable?

    Half way through the book, when the perspective became that of a teenage Landon. LOL


    What does Zachary Webber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    OMG……he makes the book. Is there such thing as a book boyfriend voice?


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Webber, please hurry and do more books.

    "I loved this book."

    This is the first book I have read by Tammara Webber. I loved it. I was sucked into the drama of Landon Lucas Maxfield. At the beginning, and probably because I was driving there were details I missed. I did become confused and thought who are these two different people.
    And of course, they were 2 different people. Before and After.
    Zachary Webber as always was fantastic. Seriously, I could listen to him read the phone book. I love your voice Zachary. I can't wait to listen him perform Boyce's book.

    "A little slow..."

    I love Tammara and her writing is very good, but this book was just kinda slow. Nothing wrong with that but by the end I was more than ready for it to be over. This is not how I usually feel when finishing one of her books.

    That is all.

    "What is there NOT to love about lucus?!"

    Tammara is such an amazing author! Loved Easy and this is just as spectacular. Not to mention Zachary did a fantastic job! I normally don't love the narrators and I have to just get over it, but my goodness 😍😍. Wouldn't we all love to have a Lucas/Landon in our life

    Story
    "What a terrific Listen."

    I LOVED THIS BOOK!! It's the first Tammara Webber I've ever read (and I didn't read this, I listened to it). There are some issues with the book that other more expert bloggers have mentioned but as y'all all know, I am a visceral reviewer and I go with my heart/gut. And, I could NOT stop listening to it and riding Lucas Maxfield's emotional roller coaster. As for the issues stated by some bloggers about decisions made by the main characters, I don't think that's so much a writing issue as it is trying to get inside the mind of a college aged kid. And college seniors are still kids; still not totally relationship savvy, mature or able to see life through years of experience that most of us have. I can remember making some of the stupidest decisions of my life when I was in college (and beyond, actually) so I don't fault the book for being realistic in that sense.

    This book is a parallel book to Easy, the story of Jaquelyn and Lucas...how they met, how they became who they were at the end of Easy. Easy is Jacquelyn's book...Breakable is Lucas' emotionally wrenching story. And a turbulent, sad, beautiful story it is. An aside focus is awareness of assaults on women on campuses, the shame and guilt that is a aprt of that and the need to be trained in how to deal with an attacker.

    To top it all off, it's read by one of my favorite narrators (who just happens to be Tammara Webber's son) Zachary Webber. He did such an amazing job as Lucas in this book...bringing to life all sides of Lucas..his pain, his rage, his guilt, his heart, his love, his struggles and his redemption.

    If you want to be entertained by a really good writer, really good narrator and a very strong story, this should be on your list, for sure.

    Story
    "An Unforgettable Duet; Easy+Breakable"

    I accidentally found this book. I loved Easy, and I was tentative about buying this book from Landon Lucas's POV. I have to say the narrator made this book work for me. I think the wrong narrator would have ruined the feel of this tender love story. At least this time I knew what happened but there were many surprises. The mark of a really good author that can bring another story to this couple. Easy and now Breakable will join my favorite romances. Worth the credit and thank you for the pleasure of listening to this well written, well narrated story.

    "Oh Lucas!!!"
    Would you listen to Breakable again? Why?

    Yes, I have revisited it many times since it's release.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breakable?

    Lucas finally letting go


    What does Zachary Webber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He completely brought Lucas/Landon to life for me. He conveys Lucas' emotions so well


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, but I'd like to not write it here


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Easy but it was great to hear things from Lucas' side and have a bit extra that was only hinted at in the first book.

    "Alright...but not as good as "Easy""

    Enjoyed this book, which is essentially the story of "Easy" by Tammara Webber, but from Lucas' perspective. He was what made me enjoy the book "Easy" so much and it was great getting to see his perspective and find out more about his tragic backstory. However, the interactions between him and Jackie were abbreviated and almost sidelined, as I'm guessing the author assumes we would have already read them in "Easy"? Either way, I'm glad I got to find out more about one of the most interesting guy characters I've read in a while!
