Overview

New Adult contemporary romance. Due to sexual content and heavy subject matter, this book is intended for mature readers.

"If you're broken, I'll fix you..."

I'm only twenty-one and already damaged goods. A slut. A failure. A disappointment to my picture-perfect family as long as I can remember. I called off my wedding to William Bailey, the only man who thought I was worth fixing. A year later, he's marrying my sister. Unless I ask him not to...

"If you shatter, I'll find you..."

But now there's Asher Logan, a broken man who sees the fractures in my façade and doesn't want to fix me at all. Asher wants me to stop hiding, to stop pretending. Asher wants to break down my walls. But that means letting him see my ugly secrets and forgiving him for his.

With my past weighing down on me, do I want the man who holds me together or the man who gives me permission to break?

    3.5/5 stars This book was an emotional rollercoaster! My heart

    3.5/5 stars

    This book was an emotional rollercoaster! My heart and emotions were everywhere at some points! I did really like it though. Though- I felt like it read a bit too fast. I didn't quite get enough plot and character development (concerning Asher and Will, anyways.) Lexi did a great job of showing us how broken Maggie's character really is and how her past has come to form so much of her present.

    I want to start by talking about Maggie's character. I really liked her. She was so up in your face, brutally honest, and spunky- but you know from the beginning that it was all a facade. She keeps people at a distance and doesn't want anyone to know the ugly truth of her past. Your heart can't help but break for her once you finally learn about everything she has gone through. Not to mention, living in a small town, where everyone knows everyone's business, she can't escape her past and things that people whisper behind her back.

    I wouldn't say there is a love triangle in this book, but there are two guys both interested in Maggie. One is her ex-fianceé who is about to marry her sister, and the other is a former rock star that lives next door to Maggie's mother. I felt myself really torn between the two for most of the book and then later realized who would be the better fit for Maggie. It's no secret I typically go for the good, sweet guys. I don't naturally gravitate toward the bad boys like most women do, lol. So, I was all for Will coming to his senses and realizing he was making a mistake with Maggie's sister. But once Asher came into the picture and we see just how much he wants to get to know Maggie (despite her very forward sexual advances) he really made me fall for him too! He wants Maggie to feel comfortable enough with him to open up, but he doesn't pressure her and he certainly doesn't want to try and fix who she is, especially since he has his own emotional baggage to deal with! He wants her to confide in him and then together work through overcoming her issues.
    Both Asher and Will have things they are keeping from Maggie. One secret in particular, while we as readers knew what it was, Maggie didn't and I felt so wrecked for her. She is desperately trying to run from her past and genuinely doesn't want to be the person she once was. And this one secret brings it all back to life for her and I felt so bad!

    The steam factor in this book? SO high! Lexi Ryan knows how to write some good steamy, love scenes, that's for sure! :D
    Overall, this was a fast read for me and despite some smaller issues I had, I did like it. I love reading about broken characters who feel they have nothing left or nothing of worth to offer and then watch them discover that they do and are able to find love in someone who wants to build them up and help them through their issues.

    Unbreak Me delivers oodles of angst and lots of steamy romance while delivering a touching message.  I really love when characters take a bad situation and turn it into something beautiful.  What can I say?  I'm a sucker for a happily ever after. 




    Maggie is s a sweet girl who just wants to move beyond her reputation.  Will is a safe straight laced man from Maggie's past.  Asher is the bad boy ex-rockstar with a damning history who thinks Maggie is too strong for her own good.   As the world works against Maggie the men in her life do what they each think is best to help her survive.




    I was kept on the edge of my seat waiting for more of Maggie's story to unfold.  I was rewarded with surprises and heart warming moments that made me love Maggie more and more.  I loved how her art reflected her life, even if she didn't see it, and the thing with the note cards at the end, I totally teared up! (You'll see.)




    *Sigh* Asher.... I think I love you!  I'm sure there will be a big "Team Asher" vs "Team Will" thing, but I'm telling you right now, I was Team Asher from the moment he first danced with Maggie!




    This was a great read.

    Alright, so I bought this book expecting a good story. Instead,

    Alright, so I bought this book expecting a good story. Instead, I got a whirlwind of drama. I might get some flack for this review, but I want to be honest.

    Plot: I had lots of problems with the plot. For one, the plot is very misleading in some parts and very dramatic. For example, there is one part where the girl had a miscarriage and then toward the end of the book she actually had the baby? There is no explanation as to what really happen that night which leaves me to question if she had two miscarriages or what? Other parts of the story didn’t make sense. Again it was a lot of scenes happening and then the author changes the scene completely. It was misleading and very confusing.

    Love: This is the part that nerved me the most. I felt like this characters did not know love. All they did was eff each other brains out and then claim to love each other after ward. Yet, they keep secrets from each other and every time a secret is revealed they fight, yell at each other that they lied and leave back to their old selves. Really? Throw me a bone here! There was no time for romance cause they are too busy hiding from lies, hiding from themselves or from each other. Not to mention that it has a love triangle in the story. The main character is first with William but there is never really any completion of their relationship. They still love each other. ( Every time Maggie was asked if she loved William she never answered) and well I just felt like, how can you move on if you still haven’t finished your last relationship?

    Roller Coaster: Yes, this book will give you whiplash. It goes back and forth between love and hate. Fighting and making up. Leaving and staying. UGH! I got so frustrated with the emotional movement of the story that it left me angry. It left me emotionally drained and not satisfied. Instead of going to bed happy, I stayed up late to read this book that left me angry and unable to sleep.

    Now, what I did enjoy in this story is one aspect that really isn’t written about. Usually, when a girl is rape/ molested in a story, the girl becomes quite, aloof and a loner. Instead, this girl Maggie becomes the opposite. She becomes promiscuous because she felt like since she ask for it the first time, she offers her body to anyone, anytime, anywhere. She’s very open about what she wants and carries the blame on herself. She takes in the name calling and even lives up to it. I like this part of the story cause her story about what happened to her is done well. Despite the other drama in the book, Maggie’s back round story alone is interesting and sad. The reader can see her downfall and really you just want to hug her.

    Overall, this is an okay book. I really had high hopes for it. Even though this book was enjoyable at times, I did find myself having lots of issues with the characters and their actions.

    I seem to be getting incredibly lucky with the books I have been

    I seem to be getting incredibly lucky with the books I have been reading lately, they all have grabbed my attention and sucked me right into their worlds and Unbreak Me was no different. From the first few pages I couldn’t set the kindle down, I had to keep reading. SO much so that I read this in one sitting.




    When we first met Maggie I knew there was more to her story than we were seeing, something more than everyone around her hinted at. Maggie has been forced to make choices in her life that she is struggling to deal with on a day-to-day basis now. And it makes for a heartbreaking read. On the outside she is holding it together, she is strong and independent but on the inside she is so shattered she’s barely able to hold it together. Considering the way that she has been treated for the last 6 years its understandable when she tries to keep Asher at arm’s length but the woman is crazy. Asher is… breath-taking. When we met Asher for the second time I think I fell in love. He is.. *insert your own choice words here because I honestly cant sum him up in just one or two*. This man is just as broken as Maggie is, but is working to fix himself.Together they are amazing.




    I love the fact that Asher holds back, that he wants to get to know Maggie better before they take their relationship further. As Maggie says she is the man in their relationship. I love the way these two come together. There is instant attraction, there’s no denying that. But they don’t jump into bed together straight away. They both have to grow and accept things about themselves before they can do that. There is no insta-love, instead you get something bigger.




    This is the first time I have read anything by Lexi Ryan, but i know it will not be the last.

    Lexi does an amazing job with character development. You can't help but fall in love with Maggie and her feisty personality. I think all of us were rebellious in our youth at one time. Then there is Lizzy the good girl that really envies her sister Maggie and wants what she can't have. Then there is William who is the genuine nice guy but is too wonderful and Maggie does not feel worthy of his love. Asher the mysterious rock star comes along and knocks Maggie off balance. I laughed and I cried. Thank you Lexi for your wonderful stories I have read them all and look forward to what comes next.

    Loved it! I couldn't put the book down. I just HAD to keep reading to unravel the intrigue. Now that I've finished it, I keep having book daydreams about the scenes and my mind feels compelled to extend the story. Fantastic job, now when does the next one come out?

    I don't understand why Maggie put herself in the situations she did which anyone with an ounce of common sense would not do! I do not want to give away anything and spoil someone else's read, but come on! This story is totally unrealistic and full of really boring drama, I was just glad to get to the end!

    This story was really sad to read. It wasn't a devastating, make me cry book, but just sad. Knowing what happened to Maggie as a teenager was sad, but the things her dad said to her afterwards and the way her parents treated her was heartbreaking to me. I could truly understand why Maggie acted as she did after the pain just those two things caused her. Add in everything else that happened to her, whether she was partly responsible or not, and you have one confused girl with very little self worth.

    Ever read a book that when you finish it ur speechless. Unsure whether u liked it or not? There were parts you question what the author was thinking but yet thankful they gave you a real story line that wasn't bad boy chasing the girl but the girl barely holding it together n realize its okay to break.....its how you heal....I think I have to let this one sit a bit before I write a review. I'm a bit lost....




    Now that this book has had time to sit with me overnight....I feel like this was for sure one of the better books I have read. Maggie has had a rough life thanks to the influence of those around her. No one has asked if she's okay or see that she's not as strong as she acts. But Asher does. This is for sure one of the better Triangle books I have read. I mean sure I wanted to slap Maggie a few times and maybe Asher too for being a little dense, but it was a goodread. It didn't feel like a book written with complete fairy tale in mind. But rather a story where the girl was trying to fix herself the only way she knew how.

    After all of the rave rave rave reviews I wasn't sure what to ex

    After all of the rave rave rave reviews I wasn't sure what to expect.  Many times the books with the best reviews turn out to be the worst disappointments.  I read the reviews, look at the book I just put down, and wonder if everyone else read a different, thousand times BETTER version of the story than what I had just suffered through.  Unbreak Me, however, did not come close to disappointing.  In fact, I had to create a new shelf for it.  I had to make an "unputdownable" shelf.  Ok, that may not be a word, but it aptly describes this book for me.  It got better and better with every turn of the page, until I was picking it up at every chance.  If I had 30 seconds free, I was reading it.  




    Maggie was damaged, broken, and totally let down by the very people who should have helped her, molded her, and protected her. She wasn't perfect, but no one in the book was, and I appreciated that.  Asher... what to say about Asher...  He was like a steady heavy rain from beginning to end.  Sometimes with lightening and thunder, but steady nonetheless, and I love the rain.  




    Unbreak Me was very well written, first person in the voices of Will, Asher and Maggie. The author drew me in, until I too was like Asher wanting to beg Maggie to open up to us, to trust us with her secrets.  It's not that there were surprise twists and turns, and I appreciate that the author didn't try to do a great reveal like I was too dumb to have figured it all out. By the time Maggie reveals her secrets, it's less about that and more about the trust, the intimacy, the openness that Maggie should have. 




    To simply slot Unbreak Me in as a romance would not do it justice.  It's about redemption, heartache, self-forgiveness, and the beauty that can be found on thing beautiful that had been shattered.
