Kurzbeschreibung

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ich bin restlos begeistert! 7. Mai 2014

Inhalt:
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. (Klappentext, Amazon)

Cover:
Das Cover ist einfach nur toll! Genauso wie das von "Easy". Besonders gut gefallen hat mir, dass man die gleichen Models genommen hat und diese auch wirklich wie die Protagonisten aussehen!

Titel:
Der Titel ist gut gewählt, denn man erfährt nun endlich Lucas Vorgeschichte, aber hier möchte ich nicht zuweit vorgreifen, auch wenn man das Hauptereignis schon in "Easy" erfährt.

Schreibstil:
Tammara konnte mich schon in "Easy" mit ihrem lockeren, und doch ergreifenden Schreibstil beeindrucken. Auch bei "Breakable" hat es nur eine halbe Seite gedauert, und ich war direkt mitten drin. Allein der Prolog, in dem Lucas als Teenager im Krankenhaus aufwacht, hat mich direkt mitgenommen, obwohl ich vorbereitet war auf das, was ich lesen würde. Das Buch ist, wie sein Vorgänger aus der Ich-Perspektive geschrieben und wechselt zwischen dem jetzigen Lucas und dem von früher hin und her. Allerdings ist es immer kapitelweise gegliedert, sodass die Rückblicke mit "Landon" gekennzeichnet sind. Man erfährt viel aus Lucas Privatleben und seinem Zusammenleben mit der Familie Heller, sowie seine Sicht der Ereignisse, als er Jacky kennenlernt.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ganz gut 8. Juli 2014
Format:Taschenbuch
"Breakable" ist die Schilderung der Story von "Easy" aus der Sicht des männlichen Helden. Hier wird in seine Vergangenheit geschaut und gleichzeitig auch in seine Gegenwart. Man kann seine Handlungen besser verstehen und es ergänzt den ersten Band sehr gut. Die beteiligten Personen haben einen guten Charakter, das finde ich bei Liebesgeschichten immer wichtig.
Allerdings hatte ich doch noch irgendetwas "Mehr" oder böse Geheimnisse erwartet, darauf wartet man vergeblich. Die Schilderungen aus seiner Schulzeit waren mir oft zu ausführlich und zusammenhanglos, dass ich immer den Drang verspürte, schnell darüber weg lesen/springen zu müssen. 100 Seiten weniger hätten der Geschichte gut getan.

"Einfach. Liebe." war mir zufällig in einer Bahnhofsbuchhandlung in die Hände gefallen und ich hatte das Buch verschlungen und auf Amazon aus Neugierde nach weiteren Werken der Autorin geschaut.
Da mich "Einfach. Liebe." schon unheimlich fasziniert, berührt und mitgerissen hat, landete zwei Tage später "Breakable" in meinem Briefkasten - und auch dieses Buch habe ich verschlungen und kann es nur empfehlen!

Voraussetzung ist, dass man "Easy"/"Einfach Liebe." vorher gelesen hat - manches ist dann besser verständlich.

Generell jedoch tun sich einem bei der Lektüre von "Breakable" völlig neue Perspektiven auf - wer manches Mal in "Easy" vielleicht etwas verwundert war über das Handeln des Protagonisten Lucas, der wird hier die Erklärungen finden, seine Sichtweise der Dinge.

Dennoch, auch wenn die Bücher teilweise hinsichtlich der Szenen/Handlungsstränge deckungsgleich sind: es ist ein komplett NEUES Buch, d.h. es wird einem nicht einmal dann langweilig, sollte man "Easy" auswendig kennen!

Wie meine Vorrezensentin auch, so ist das für mich die erste Liebesgeschichte, die ich aus Sicht eines Mannes lese - umso faszinierender jedoch ist sie. Das Buch ist sicherlich durch Lucas' schwere, tragische Vorgeschichte noch einmal tiefgründiger als sein Vorgänger aus Sicht von Jacqueline. Insgesamt jedoch bleibt sich Tammara Webber selbst treu.

Der Schreibstil ist flüssig, liest sich sehr leicht und ist doch abwechslungsreich und lässt einen teilhaben an der Gefühlswelt des Ich-Erzählers. Man lernt, Lucas zu verstehen, hat bildhaft die erzählten Szenerien vor Augen und kann sich bestens hineinfühlen.

Insgesamt ein wundervolles Buch, das ich all denen, die, wie ich, bereits unter Entzugserscheinungen litten nach der Lektüre von "Einfach. Liebe"/"Easy", nur wärmstens empfehlen kann!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Easy to love Breakable 15. Mai 2014
Von Cat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This review won't be entirely spoiler-free and will also refer to Tammara Webber's novel Easy, which is the first book in her Contours of the Heart series.

I had high expectations in this book because I loved Easy - I consider it one of the best New Adult novels - so I was extremely relieved and happy when Breakable exceeded my expectations.
The book is divided into perspectives from Landon and Lucas. Each chapter begins with a Landon POV which shows him as a teenager 'before' and 'after' the 'event' (everyone who has read Easy will know what I'm talking about) and ends with a Lucas POV. Lucas' POV starts a few weeks before Easy which I thought was very nice because we could see how he fell in love with Jacqueline.

Tammara's writing was fluid and captivating. I teared up several times but also laughed a lot. How can I not when Landon compares himself to Harry Potter? -> “I had become Harry Potter. Except I was thirteen and not magic, and my destiny, whatever it was, held no profound purpose.”
Lucas made me swoon and fall even more in love with him whilst Landon made me sad and really feel for him. At some points it was hard to go on reading because Landon was in so much pain or so lonely.
I enjoyed the flashbacks to 'before' but they also made it harder because we could see how Landon turned from a happy and much loved teenager to a lonely and neglected one.

I enjoyed the scenes between Lucas and Jacqueline even more than I did in Easy. Reading Lucas' POV also made me understand why he forgave Jacqueline that quickly.
I loved the extra Lucas/Jacqueline chapters we got, especially the chapter when they said 'I love you' for the very first time. It was so cute and my heart melted a little bit.

Breakable is definitely worth its money and if you loved Easy then its 'prequel/companion' novel is a 'must-buy'.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just as emotional, heart-breaking, sexy, and angsty as EASY!! (N.B: Not a re-telling from Lucas' POV) 6. Mai 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Dear Tammara Webber,

You once introduced me to the book that would make me fall in love with a brand new genre: New Adult. That book was Easy and it blew me away so much that I’ve read it just as much as the first Harry Potter book.

Now you’ve followed it up with Breakable and I just have to say a few things first:

- I believed in your talent, but Easy was perfect and I didn’t think you could make another perfect book to match that elite level;
- I still love Easy as one of my all time favs and I doubted you could impress me that much again; and
- I worried you’d erase the ground-breaking first book in this series by following up with this one.

** Glad to report I was wrong, and can’t be any happier for it. **

Love, Rebecca

••• Now here is my review! •••

Breakable is sort of a sequel and sort of Easy in Lucas’ POV (point of view). It’s told in alternating storylines, with Landon as a teenager before the first book and then as Lucas in the current timeline, and yet this too manages to reveal new content but touch on the absolute best parts of Easy.

I think everyone should buy this book if you love contemporary stories. It literally has the best of everything. A bit of the type of YA you love to read, the sexy stuff from NA, and the emotional and poignant narrative of a thought-provoking, heart-wrenching contemporary.

Landon is a kid with no direction, mother suddenly dead and his father absent and drowning in his own grief. Landon becomes adventurous, dangerous, live-for-the-moment, experimental, slutty and withdrawn. He meets a friend early on, and after a quick punch on, they become best mates. Together they go through high school like one big ride and this storyline is both crazy as it is hard to watch, knowing what I do about his grown-up character.

Lucas is the sexy college kid/tutor/barista/defence-class-instructor who is guarded, and torn over his feelings for Jacqueline. He notices and crushes on her well before we heard about him in Easy and immediately we run into a huge problem: he’s both a student with her and her teacher. He can’t be both and so he tries to stay back, but their connection is intense and angsty and he can’t stop where they’re heading when he feels as strongly as he does.

I am so glad that I read this book ASAP. If I had the opportunity I’d scream it from every rooftop. Like the original, this sort-of-sequel, sort-of-retelling-from-lucas’-POV is what NA should be. It’s about growing up into an adult, and sexual exploration, it’s about experimenting, and finding out who you really are, about realising you have to face the darkest bits of your past, and completely about finding true love.

Straight to my Best Everrr shelf on Goodreads and HIGHLY recommended!

4.0 von 5 Sternen When doubts become ignorance, and ignorance becomes awesome…. 6. Mai 2014
Von Tough Critic Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I didn't TBR Breakable (insert audible gasp here). Nope, I did not. It had nothing to do with not liking Easy, because I LOVED Easy. I LOVE Tammara Webber, but my interest seemed disinterested. It's a commonality of late, take your best seller, write it from a different POV (usually the male's) and new life is breathed into an already told story. Don't get me wrong, several authors have been very successful in doing this, and I've loved some of the literary reboots that I've read, but with my ever growing TBR list, who has time for it?

So here it goes….

Are you ready for this?

Really ready for this?

Okay….

I. Was. Wrong.

I'll say it again, because it kind of got caught in my throat, I WAS WRONG.

This was not Easy. It had parts of Easy told from Lucas's POV, but it's not that book. It was so much more. This was Lucas's story. I enjoyed getting to see the parts of Easy from his POV, but it was his beginning that had me so captivated.

This was THE beginning.

Now with the risk of contradicting myself, I will say that I still recommend reading Easy first. The reason is, I feel like this book was written on the assumption that the reader has already read it. Yes, technically it could be read as a standalone, but the parts of Easy weren't as developed as the original book's, and by experiencing them through Breakable some of what I loved about Easy, the emotion, the overall experience, will be lost. You're first experience with Easy should be through Easy. This is just my personal opinion so take it or leave it.

Breakable was amazing, and I truly feel it did nothing but make this series even better. It was a completely new book, a totally new experience. There was so much about Lucas that I didn't know, so many layers. Getting to experience his life, and the life that brought him to Jacqueline, was the best gift the author could have given us. We also get some additional Lucas and Jacqueline scenes, and closure that was only made possible through this fast paced and emotional edition. I'm so glad my ignorant doubt was replaced by awesome. Well done Ms. Webber! Well done!

READ ON!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not Just a Retelling of Easy - A Story On It's Own 6. Mai 2014
Von Amazon Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Rating: 4.5 stars

It is rare that I read companion novels that truly complete the original story. Landon Lucas Maxfield was always a bit of an enigma to me and after reading this book, I have a whole new understanding and love of Jacqueline and Lucas’ story. Tammara Webber accomplished something that most cannot – she managed to take her original story and add a new layer of depth to make the story even better.

Reading this book was like revisiting a long lost friend. I read EASY over two years ago when it was still an indie. It is one of those books that stays with you no mater how much time passes. So suffice to say I was thrilled to learn that Tammara was going to be telling Lucas’ story! It lived up to every expectation I had and then some. I did not re-read EASY before starting this and I found that I did not need to at all.

This is not just a retelling of EASY nor is it simply an alternate POV story – it is so much more. In short, it is a prequel to EASY and does give an overlap of the events of EASY from Lucas’ POV. Tammara spent a lot of time and effort creating a story that was new and would give fans of EASY a completely different layer to Lucas and Jacqueline’s story. The book was told in both the past and the present – with each scene from the past relating to a scene in the present. What I mean is that the events of Lucas’ past explained his reactions and thoughts about the events in the present.

Landon. When Lucas talks about his past (pre-Jacqueline), he talks as Landon. In all honesty, it took me a while to understand the relevance of his past. There were times where I’d ask myself what the purpose of knowing about some girl he was attracted to or how him handling bullies at school was relevant. At first, I got a bit frustrated with it. I just didn’t care since these people were obviously not a part of his present. However, the more I read the more I realized how important these people were in making him the man he is in the present. It is all connected.

Landon went through something unimaginable at such a young age and it truly shaped him into the person he is in the present. It was heartbreaking to revisit all the emotions that he went through at the sudden loss of his mother and upheaval of his entire life. After the horrific murder of his mother, his father moved them to his grandfather’s house. He was a shell of a person and such a foreign creature compared to the Lucas of the present.

It was fascinating to see how he coped with the pain of his loss and how each decision he made, whether good or bad, brought him one step closer to where he ended up. It is rare that I read a book where the author not only gives the message that sometimes things happen for a reason, but actually shows it by making it the central theme of the book as well! Brilliance!

Lucas. When it was time to tell Lucas’ POV from the events of EASY, it was fascinating how I got a completely different side of the story. It actually made me realize how little I knew about what Lucas was doing! It was so great to find out how he had noticed Jacqueline way before her and her boyfriend broke up and felt drawn to her even before he saved her from her attack. Or why he pulled back from her when they were in intimate situations. Everything just clicked and every question was answered.

I think the best part of this part of the book was that during the scenes that were an overlap of EASY, Tammara didn’t just reiterate the same dialogue, rather she chose to take different parts of the scene, maybe a part that Jacqueline just “told” in EASY, to “show”. By doing this I was able to get the whole picture in my head – it also made everything new instead of redundant.

This is one of the best companion novels that I’ve read in a long time. Not only did Tammara give Lucas a voice, but she made me fall for him all over again and so much harder. If you enjoyed EASY, then I have no doubt that you will LOVE this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Breakable was everything I wanted...and MORE! (Tamie @ Bookish Temptations) 8. Mai 2014
Von twilightangel17 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
First off I have to say yet again how much I love this cover. Even if I had never read Easy I would be interested in reading this book based on the cover and the synopsis. It’s even better looking in person tho!

As to what’s between the pages of this book? It’s everything I had hoped for and then some! Tammara Webber is such a talented writer that my expectations were unusually high for this one. From the moment I found out that she was writing Breakable, this book was on my must read, must have list. The day I received it in the mail was the day I began reading it, and it’s the kind of book that makes you think about staying awake all night to finish it. Sadly, I had to work the next day so I couldn’t do that. I briefly thought about calling in sick so I could stay home with it, but I didn’t do that either. Instead I read it during breaks, during lunch, and once I got home I did little else…because it was just THAT good.

While it’s true that Breakable is Lucas’s POV of Easy, it’s also true that it’s so much more than that. It’s the back story of Lucas when he was still Landon. Tammara weaves the two stories together seamlessly, flawlessly, perfectly. I can’t even begin to imagine what a difficult task that was, but it’s a thing of beauty.

It’s difficult to pinpoint just one favorite thing about this book, but here’s one that’s on the list for sure. Getting Lucas’ POV answered questions I had when I read Easy. I won’t spoil things by revealing the answer, but I’ll share one of the questions I had. Remember when Lucas and Jacqueline are getting hot and heavy on his couch and he pleads with her to “Say stop, please. Please.”? That one always had me stymied. You’ll find out exactly why when you read Breakable. WoW! Just WoW! (It’s on page 208 if you want to refresh your memory).

It’s also fair to warn you that your heart is in danger of breaking as you read Landon’s back story. It’s hard in a way to reconcile the way he was with the person I knew from Easy, but that only adds so much more to the story, and it makes me love the character even more. To have suffered the trauma of losing his mother the way he did and feeling responsible for it would have been enough to set his course for bad choices. That was compounded by the loss of his Dad. No, he wasn’t dead physically, but he withdrew from Lucas and life emotionally. That had pretty dire consequences. Add in the further loss of his home, friends, and a very nice lifestyle when his father moved the two of them back to where he had grown up, and you have the perfect recipe for disaster.

Bad choices is actually too weak of a description for the things that Lucas got involved with. Disastrous would be more apt. I think you’ll be as surprised as I was by how low he sunk, and that’s being kind. What saved him was a wake up call that could have had consequences of monumental proportions, and the love…make that tough love that was given to him by a favorite character from Easy. Dr. Heller didn’t offer him an easy out. That’s not what he needed tho. He had to work hard to get to the place he’s at when we meet him at college. It was a necessary journey he had to undergo in order to save himself, and it makes for one hell of a read.

There are many new characters we meet along the way, but for me the three that stood out the most were his grandfather, his friend Boyce, and Mrs. Heller. All are important for the story to be told fully. All have an impact. I sometimes don’t pay enough attention in a review to secondary characters, but without them the story would be lacking.

I have to echo something that Tammara said when she appeared on Book Talk Nation. Easy is an important book because it deals honestly with a serious problem… sexual assault. But I think Breakable is an important book too because it deals with other issues that can ruin lives as well. I applaud both. I loved both, but Breakable is my favorite of the two.

Normally in my reviews I talk about the heat in a book. Normally I don’t save that til the end but I lead with it. I made an exception in this case very specifically because I didn’t want to take away from what I felt was more important. Having said that I would be remiss if I didn’t say I thought the heat was better in this than in Easy. Maybe that’s simply a result of reading it from Lucas’ POV. I generally think it’s much hotter from the guy’s POV personally. It seemed to me that it was more detailed which I appreciated, but have no fear… it’s not gratuitous. Whatever the reasons…it’s HOT! It’s also a very romantic book. Make no mistake…a book can deal with very serious, heartbreaking subjects and still make your heart pound, give you all the aww’s and ah’s. This book does that exquisitely.

Breakable is getting my highest recommendation for you to read it as soon as you can one click it on Amazon, or as fast as the mail can deliver it if you choose to buy the print version if you haven’t already. It’s on my short list of favorites read so far in 2014. It is assured of getting a place on my forever favorites list because it’s an amazing story. It isn’t just a retelling of another book. It’s a story in and of itself. Although it could be read as a stand alone I honestly would encourage you to read Easy first. I think you’re missing out if you don’t.

Thank you to Tammara for writing this book. Thank you for an amazing story. Thank you for more Lucas who will always have a very special place in my heart.

My rating for Breakable by Tammara Webber:

5++ You absolutely MUST read this book hearts, stars, diamonds or whatever designation you choose.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Honestly, I couldn’t have loved it more!

3.0 von 5 Sternen So I "liked it" instead of "loved it" like I hoped. 3. Juni 2014
Von NyghtReader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I hate it when I really want to love a book and it falls a little flat. This book is Lucas's POV. It follows along with Easy, but also 1/2 of the book is prior to his college years. I have heard that this could be read as a standalone, but I think anyone who didn't read Easy would be completely lost and/or would not get the connection between Jacqueline and Lucas.

Now the back story of Lucas was great. It was the first 1/2 of every chapter and from "Landon's" POV and the second 1/2 of each chapter was "Lucas" POV. My heart broke for Landon. We knew the basic of his life from Easy, but really getting into his story and mind was great, the back story could have been written as a great .5 standalone.

Where the story fell flat was in the present "Lucas" portions. Now I love Lucus and hearing his thoughts was great, but what I missed was the banter between Jacqueline and Lucas. I know it would be hard to write a different POV without us feeling like we were reading the same book, but all e-mails and conversations between the 2 were summarized within a sentence or two. I had to have both books open at the same time to remember what exactly was going on.

So I "liked it" instead of "loved it" like I hoped.
