Publisher's Summary

This is not your typical happily ever after.... Lauren Brooks wants to do three things: Escape the small town she grew up in, get accepted to her dream school in Chicago, and graduate without drowning in debt. Now she's working her ass off to do just that.

With a full course load and a waitressing job at one of the hottest nightclubs in Chicago, she does not have time for distractions; namely ones who only want to get into her pants. She's been burned before.

Only a fool goes for a second round.... With just two semesters left until graduation, everything's on track. Until she meets Cal. Enter distraction. At six-foot-two, with ebony hair, deep grey eyes, and a smile that could only hide an agenda, she knows he's trouble. And for the first time in her life, a little trouble might be just what she needs.

No, what she wants. It isn't like she'd ever marry the guy. Until she does.

What she thinks will be her happily ever after, is only the beginning.

Cal has a secret. One that makes loving him come with a price, and being his wife cost more than she bargained for.

Terrible, out of character ending

I loved the first 80% of the story - couldn't put it down. The twist at the end is the most disappointing ever! It ruined the story for me.

Found it hard to pull away from it!

This was a great dramatic and intriguing story. The narrator held my attention and drew me in. I could visualize every scene. The author told a great story.

A must read

I would read this over and over. There were times when I would rush read just to get to know what happened, only to have to read it again to understand everything I missed. I can't wait to read the next book.

I need closure!

This is a well written book, and read well. However, I just put that much time into an unfinished story! WHAT THA WHAT!?

Beautiful Story!!

This Book.
I have read it previously but now hearing Lauren's voice, it is just so much better.
Her voice sounds exactly as I would have imagined it!!
This is such an epic story..

Loved!

Wow, this story had me in it the whole time! I just had to keep listening. I would have never guess where it would go to and where it would end. This is a definite must listen to. I was very happy with this narrator. She did a great job in my opinion!

Unique story that left me with lots of "feels".

If you could sum up If I Break in three words, what would they be?

passionate, painful, ingenious

What did you like best about this story?

lauren is a likeable character; sweet yet strong. Her vice is the man that she loves to distraction. I loved that I could not predict the plot twists. I didn't always agree with how Lauren handled things, but I still felt empathetic towards her. I wanted to hug her. I know that sounds weird, but I felt like Portia really flushed out her character. I understood her motivations, even when I did not agree with her. I felt like she was my friend. I cried when she cried; I contemplated opening a bottle of wine to commiserate with her. I also got angry with her, for not focusing on her own life, and letting Cal go. She had a college degree; I wanted her to use it. I guess that is what I liked best about these books-- that the characters felt like real people to me.

Which scene was your favorite?

The thing I like best about this book is the fact that I didn't foresee the plot twists. I, usually, have the ability to figure out movies, and books easily and then spoil the ending for myself. With this book, the whole series in fact, I could not do that and I found that refreshing!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Small town girl tames big city bad boy, or does she? Sometimes love is messy, complicated and painful. It can also heal you, inspire you, and fill you with so much passion it's worth the risks...

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the entire If I Break series. I jumped at the chance to listen to the audio version of the books. Megan Solesski did a fantastic job of narration. As a performer, it would be challenging to sound differnet, and believable in some of the scenes that consisted of a narrator, and 4 different women talking. I think she handled switiching charcacters very well. In the subsequent books, I know this is unheard of, but I would love to hear Zachary voice Cal/Chris and Megan voice Lauren. The only coplaint I have, and I feel like a nitpicker writing this, is that I live near Saginaw MI. I nor anyone I know, would consider it a safe place to live--not enough to not have to lock your doors that's for sure.I still loved this book series. I will re-read, and listen again!
