Blaire Hayes enjoys a quiet life, spending her days as a CNA at the local nursing home and nights studying for exams. She prefers things to be as uncomplicated as possible — but when her friends drag her to a party and she bumps into her high school crush, the path of Blaire’s life veers in an entirely different direction than what she had planned for herself.

Jason Bryant created a nice life away from his hometown, putting distance between himself and the suffocating sadness of his father’s death. But when he finds out his grandfather’s health is deteriorating, he decides he must return home. Partying was not on his agenda while in town, but it’s how he bumps into Blaire Hayes—the girl he’d always thought of in high school as an unobtainable pass.

Together the two learn there are moments in life that hold within them all the power to break you…




Review:

Break You is a quick new adult romance about Blaire and Jason, re-connected from their brief moments at high school when Jason used Blaire to get to her friend. I found this book sweet and an easy, relatable book for teenagers and young adults.

I really enjoyed this – it was cute, funny and full of angst at times, always a pleasant read. The characters were great too and I thought the author did a perfect job at making them realistic and easy to relate to. Jason felt like the typical young male – makes a few mistakes but is caring deep down and Blaire and her best friends felt real too. The book felt like it had the kind of situations you could just walk into in real life, and I loved that.

I liked how Facebook contributed to some of the issues in Blaire and Jason’s relationship because it felt real. Social media does impact the lives of young people a lot these days and it felt believable that something seen on Facebook could cause problems.

Break you was enjoyable throughout. I did hope that the ending could have been drawn out a little bit because it felt a bit too quick. Despite this, I still loved reading it. Break You might not have been the most unexpected of stories but for me it was definitely the perfect book to delve into and relate to.

Rating:
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. I don't know why but I really don't like it when a character in a book goes on a social media site or texts -- that's just a pet peeve of mine. lol

    But other than that this book sounds like a good read! Nice review! :-)
