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...

This was one of the worst books I have ever read. Both characters' were in their 20's but were immature and lived like teenagers. There was no chemistry between them. Blaire was immature, spoiled and insecure. And Jason could not even get a grown up job and ran at the first sign of conflict. The writing was terrible. The story left huge gaps in the plot. And it had no ending. The book just finished in the middle of a conflict. It was simply horrible writing. I have no idea who would give this book a good review. This book is not worth your time. Do not read. And i will never read another book from this author. Terrible!

* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. * This is book #1 of the Coldcreek series. It can be read as a standalone or out of order, however, it will make the series flow better if you read it in order. This is the second book that I have read by Jennifer Snyder and I throughly enjoyed it from start to finish.  Jennifer's writing was smooth flowing, fun, and easy to read. I connected well with the characters (especially Blaire) and found them to be fun and refreshing, and the story contained a touch of angst, lots of humor and an abundance of romance and love. Jennifer Snyder managed to deliver a nice, sweet story in Break You.  Although its plot and basic storyline was predictable at times, the story was entertaining and the characters were engaging enough that I was drawn in immediately to their story. I enjoyed how Facebook contributed to some of the issues in Blaire and Jason’s relationship because it felt real and is a real part of society in this day and age. Social media does often impact the lives of people a lot these days and it felt believable that something seen on Facebook could cause problems and misunderstandings in relationships. This is a classic tale of attraction and misunderstandings with a huge dose of reality. The storyline was sweet but you could see some of the twists and plot turns coming a mile away. Despite the predictability I enjoyed the books layers and I will definitely read more from Jennifer as well as I would recommend this book and her others in this series without hesitation! It is a MUST READ!!  ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official. ***

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Jason and Blaire have a history going back to their high school days, and after meeting up again at a college party, Jason wants Blaire.  The chemistry is intense from the get go! Blaire, who is usually reserved and shy, flirts shamelessly!  Jason tracks her down via FB and befriends her, then makes a bold move and asks her out to dinner and from there on its casual chat via FB that builds up to their actual date. Unknown to Blaire, Jason's grandfather is a new resident at the home where she works, and this sets his mind at ease.  I feel for Jason because he's got so much to bear.  His mother is going through a tough patch, and one can't blame her she's lost her husband and mother in a short space of time and her dad is busy dying of a broken heart :( Eventually Jason and Blaire go on their date and again the chemistry is visible! The moment has arrived, they give in to their carnal desires for each other and not a moment too soon! Blaire is very patient with those in her care and shows them kindness, love, and respect♥ I like her gentle nature.  Mr. Harold pulled at my heart strings.  He's been at Cross Meadows for a year and not once has he gotten a visitor :'(  Jason goes to visit his gramps and bumps into Blaire and I'm rooting for Jason.  He needs love and happiness, and I'm hoping they talk through their issues, clear the air, and then they can ravish each other again!  Well, that never happened.  A bit of drama + a bombshell = no ravishing ={ Other residents that crept into my heart were Wilma and Deloris.  Wilma has been at Cross Meadows for years and again no visitors, this breaks my heart it does!  Now Deloris is our little ray of sunshine spreading joy and entertainment with her antics, such sweethearts♥ Another bombshell is dropped on these 2 young lovebirds and I cry for them and their pain. As life goes on, Blaire lashes out at Jason and thinks it's better that their paths separate :'(  Then, yet again, tragedy strikes and Blaire is at Jason's side to support him, and it seems these 2 may finally sort out all the kinks in their relationship.   I wish Jason and Blaire well and may their lives be filled with love♥ thank you guys for sharing you story with us ♥ ¿¿¿¿ Reviewed by Heidi

This is a classic tale of attraction and misunderstandings with a huge dose of reality. The storyline was sweet but you could see the twist coming a mile away. The character development was sufficient and both main female and male characters had enough endearing qualities that made you want to root for their happy ending. Despite the predictability I enjoyed the books layers overall and will read Jennifer Snyder work in the future. On a lighter note I do love the design of the cover. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 overall.

Within a few pages of starting this book, I knew that this story was going to be special. Everything about it felt real to me, the characters, the settings, the feelings and emotions that people were experiencing. It just felt like real life, which is something that always endears me to a story. As nice as the 'heroine meets hero and they live happily ever after' is, it is always comforting to see realistic characters overcome hardship, much like we do in everyday life. Blaire was a character that I identified with so much, and I really felt connected to her, feeling her emotions and pain as the novel progressed, and I wanted more than anything, for her to have her happy ending. Jason was a great character. I have a feeling some reviewers will say that they couldn't identify with him, but I thought that the way Jennifer Snyder created him, and gave us peeks into his way of thinking, really made him a real and flawed guy. I also didn't feel like I was reading a woman trying to write a man's point of view, it felt very male and that is something that is particularly difficult to pull of so I commend the author for her talent. I liked seeing how Jason changed throughout the novel, almost starting off as a boy with few responsibilities, and having to learn very quickly how to become a man. The pace of the character and story development was done to perfection, and not at one point did I wish that the story would speed up or slow down. I loved that there were bumps and stops in the story, and these had to be overcome throughout the journey and not just at the climax of the book. I liked the little things that built up, making Blaire and Jason feel hopeless, rather than one big event causing them to struggle. More than anything I adored Blaire for her kind nature. The situation she found herself in she could have taken an easier path, but she didn't even consider it, and instead accepted the new path that her life would take. Overall, this was a gorgeous story that I adored from start to finish. I loved the ending, as despite it being bittersweet, it echoed real life incredibly well, in which not everything in life can be fixed, but we have to fight for the most important things. 5 Stars! *I received a copy of this book through Xpresso Book Tours Review Opportunities, in exchange for an honest review.*
