    WARNING!! Reading this book will give you the following....

    WARNING!! Reading this book will give you the following....

    Major Heartache
    Confusion Beyond Belief (Reece's story)
    Desire Hidden in the Dark
    Happiness for the Future
    Knowledge of Danger to Come


    If that doesn't make you want to know what's going to happen my review just might. I love this book, words cannot describe it. If you never read Heart Waves you should go out and grab it!!

    We start off the second book where we left off in the first. Jenna is confused and then remembers the night before. Reece is nowhere in sight. She then leaves her best friends house (Grace) and goes home where later Reece shows up with some flowers and tells her everything is alright, but again like in Heart Waves avoids the subject of his secrets. Now this gets tricky, I don't want to spoil things for anyone who may be reading this review. Reece is Jenna's world, but all the sudden Reece is ripped from her heart. Friends & Family are treating her like it's a crime to be thinking of him since he's gone now. Get over it and move on, it's what every young girl should do right, there's plenty of fish in the sea, but he was her Romeo to her Juliet and things will never be the same.

    The electric white light between her and Reece is gone and filled with a dark gaping hole. During this dark time a mysterious character arrives....Tyler. Jenna finds a friend, one who understands lost things and the feeling of loneliness. It's almost unavoidable she's attracted to him like a magnet. He understands her in ways she can't believe, and begins to wounder if what she felt for Reece was just a bubble. Did she really even know him?? Did he feed her cheap words?? Tyler is raw and new to her scabbed heart, he shows her what it is to live again. To feel the blood pump through her broken heart.

    This book will take you on a roller-coaster with your mind, heart, and emotions. Jenna's choices come with consequences. I personally am rooting all the way for Tyler. I loved his character from the beginning in Heart Waves and this books makes me LOVE him even more. We see how real Tyler is, and how deep inside hes wounded just like Jenna. Hes a hurt dog who has to have a loud bark. He's scared to accept people inside and Jenna eventually breaks through his wall and sees right through his exterior.


    My words for this book is Amazing, Beautiful, Heart-Breaking, and Shocking! I really wanna go back right now and read it again. I feel like I didn't absorb enough of it.I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars! I hope you all enjoy this book!!

    Breaking Waves by Danielle Sibarium
    Book Two of the Heart Waves series
    Publisher: KFR Communications
    Publication Date: January 10, 2013
    Rating: 4 stars
    Source: Copy provided by the author

    Summary (from Goodreads):

    From the moment they met, Jenna knew Reece would break her heart, but she never dreamed it would happen like this. Jenna is left shattered and broken. When life becomes too painful to deal with and she feels completely alone, there’s only one person to help her pick up the pieces and move on. The one person she doesn’t want to turn to. The one person she promised to stay away from. Tyler. 

    Can Jenna put aside everything she knows about him and let Tyler help heal her broken heart?


    What I Liked:

    I liked this book even more than I liked the first book! This rarely happens for me, because usually, the first book is extremely well written, and the second may be excellent, but not as wonderful as the first book. Well, this book was, in my opinion, better than the first book.

    Something really, really bad happens in the beginning, and throws Jenna completely off balance. Without Reece, she feels empty. I think Ms. Sibarium did an excellent job of portraying Jenna'sfeelings of anger, loneliness, and despair. Jenna hides, or she lashes out, and both are understandable reactions. I really feel for Jenna throughout the entire book.

    I KNEW Tyler was better than Jenna and Reece gave him credit for! I always liked Tyler, and I really like him in this book. He seems more real than Reece. Everything with Reece seemed so la-dee-dah, and while that might seem like a good thing, to me, it was a little strange. Tyler is so much more rugged, imperfect, and, well, HOT. Yum. Zumba and Tyler. That's all you need to know.

    So, if you cannot tell, there is a love triangle. BUT. I actually like this love triangle. It's a good one - the guy leaves (from what readers know, not by choice). The girl is grieving, and needs a friend. The new guy does not take advantage of her grieving situation, but they grow close. I think this romance is sweeter and more fleshed out than Reece and Jenna's romance.

    This book is definitely a great follow-up to Heart Waves. With the absence of a certain character, we get to see more of an independent Jenna, more of Tyler, and some actual decisions by Jenna. I am definitely invested enough in this series to want more!


    What I Did Not Like:

    This book is so short! I NEED MORE! But seriously. Not a lot happened. This book was only 200 pages long, and I noticed. I need more of a plot than Jenna suffering.

    Also, like my complaint with Heart Waves, I want to see more about Jenna's ability. It's mentioned like, once, at a fair. Also? I think readers need to know more about the actual plot - with the computers and files and whatever. I'm feeling A LOT in the dark, and readers really should not be feeling this confused about the major plotline this late in the series. The major plotline is really pushed behind the romance, which is NOT okay. I hope the next book has the computers/secret files plotline in the forefront, with the romance issue shadowing it.


    Would I Recommend It:

    If you have read the first one, definitely! If you have not read the series yet, I would still recommend the series, but this series is not for everyone. As no series ever is.


    Rating:

    4 stars. This was one awesome sequel!

    Nothing but perfection should be expected from this novel after

    Nothing but perfection should be expected from this novel after Danielle Sibarium's first book in the series, and that's what you get. All the characters and story lines have been set up, the reader already loves these characters and there relationships. After reading Heart Waves you can't help but yearn for the sequel to find out what is in store next for Jenna and Reece, and Danielle had so much planned for those two.

    The twists and turns in Breaking Waves starts right off in the beginning. Event's that the reader never expects throws them for a loop. The emotion that Danielle puts into these scene's had me tearing up a few times throughout the novel. Breaking Waves is one of those novels that should have tissue warning written on the front cover. You'll want to have those close by when you start. Yet, all the best novels should have those warnings. The emotion behind the characters and they're actions is what made Breaking Waves so addicting.

    Another new twist in Breaking Waves is the love triangle. Which is really hard to explain without any spoilers. The love triangle is only a partial love triangle, since you need all three characters to make a triangle. However, that 'almost' love is another quality that made Breaking Waves new and exciting to read. Personally, I'm completely torn between the two guys. I think either one would be perfect for Stephanie. I can see myself happy with either outcome.

    In my opinion, the best way to categorize Breaking Waves and Heart Waves, is as an contemporary novel with a supernatural flare. Reader's who enjoy contemporary will still be able to enjoy this series. While it does have a supernatural touch to it, the characters and their relationships are the main focus. If you are a fan of supernatural novels, you will also love the series because it's so mysterious. No matter what you like, it's easy to fall in love with the world that Danielle created. This is one that you don't want to miss.

    If you read the synopsis you already know that if you love Reece

    If you read the synopsis you already know that if you love Reece, your heart will some how be broken. The first chapters are definitely heartbreaking. The story as a whole is a fun and bittersweet and then the end basically knocks you on your butt. And yet, I still could not put it down until I read those final bittersweet pages.




    This is definitely Tyler's book. You meet him a little in book one, and may have hated him, but in Breaking Waves you get to know him a lot more. I definitely did not hate him in book one, and actually wanted to know more about him. Like I said... I'm drawn to these dark, tormented boys. And, I did find myself falling for him in this book. I mean Tyler is sexy and has green eyes. I have a huge green eye weakness! See, I don't blame Jenna at all for gravitating towards him. He's there for her, he helps her, and he actually cares for her back. Yet on the other side I've held out hope that we'll see Reece again and in book one he completely had my heart. I do not envy Jenna if she'll have to choose, not at all. Though I must admit, after much debating going on in my head... I lean towards Reece.




    So the ending Jenna has a huge revelation and it was basically my "Oh ****" moment. I was happy and yet at the same time nervous. Jenna is thrown through SO many emotions in Breaking Waves and she discovers to much more of the world around her. More and more secrets keep building and I can't wait to find finally have them all revealed! The ending was one that had me literally begging Danielle for book three... I cannot wait!
