    This is another Sequel book w/ a cliffhanger ending. Still a good book w/ a little suspense, hot love scenes & a couple shockers. The book starts off w/ Ellie & her boyfriend Cane, her best friend Tyler (who she basically grew up w/) & she meets Reed who just moved to Boston from Texas & Ellie can't seem to stay/stop seeing him!

    **JUST BOOKED received an ARC for an honest review** WHAT¿HUH¿W

    **JUST BOOKED received an ARC for an honest review**

    WHAT…HUH…WHY…AWH…DAMN…I just read Breaking Elle by Antoinette Candela, WOW!

    Breaking Elle is not a love triangle but I full blown love to the power of square.  Elle is a 22 years old young woman at 5’7 ft. with killer
    legs, thick wavy brown hair that falls to the middle of her back, and has almond shape hazel eyes. Elle is finishing her degree in
    Biology and is in the process of applying to medical schools possibly in Florida, but currently she is a counselor and shift supervisor
    for the youth program at Pierce Sports Center. 

    Elle has her hands full in her personal life too, because there is Cane - her boyfriend, Tyler - her best friend, and Reed – her admirer.
    Cane is 6 ft. tall with a lean muscular build and has shabby blonde hair. Elle is dating Cane for two years and is ready for the next step
    in their relationship, until she discovers he has made yet another mistake and breaks her heart. Tyler is 6 ft. of pure lean muscle,
    tousled brown hair, and brown eyes. Tyler is a baseball god which has played baseball since he was in little league and is now at
    Boston College on a full baseball scholarship. Reed is 6’2 ft. with tousled brown hair, piercing blue eyes, broad muscular chest and
    biceps, a tattoo peeks out from underneath his sleeve, and sexy smile. Reed is also new to Boston and has uprooted from Texas to
    attend the graduate program in sports medicine at Boston University.

    Elle finds her relationship with Cane in turmoil and is struggling to because she feels her heart is tearing, but she also see that she
    may be following in the same path as her mother. While Elle tries to keep her options open, she cannot help how his electrifying
    presence sends her little shocks when he is near her and she cannot ignore how her body gravitates to him. Like Elle, Reed also has
    the same attraction and they both have secrets that they both need to share prior to moving on with their lives. While Elle struggles with
    life’s curve balls, Tyler is always there to help her through her life’s challenges while he sits on the sidelines to watch the woman he
    truly loves more than a best friend suffers.

    Breaking Elle is a beautiful love to the power of square story that will capture your attention immediately and will be unable to put the
    book down. While reading, you will find yourself on an INTENSE emotional roller coaster experiencing many emotions like being MAD,
    SAD, SCARED, CRYING, LAUGHING, and FALLING IN LOVE. Breaking Elle is Antoinette Candela’s first novel in the series, so do not
    be disappointed when you discover the book ends with huge cliffhanger. Antoinette will not have us to waiting too long to find out what
    happens with Elle, because she is currently writing the second book in the series, Wanting Reed. 

    I rate Antoinette Candela’s first novel in the Shattered series, Breaking Elle - 5 HUNKY STARS!
