Breakable is the retelling of Tammara Webber's fantastic book Easy, but this time we get Lucas/Landon's side of the story. Being a huge fan of Easy, to say that I was beyond excited when I discovered that this book was being written is not a lie (a happy dance may have been involved). And I have to say that I adored Breakable probably more so than Easy, and that's because of Lucas, his story was always so much more intriguing to me than Jacqueline's was, so to open the book and not only find that we get Easy from his point of view but we also get at the start of every chapter his past, after the heartbreaking events that took his Mom away from him and in a sense his childhood innocence which also left him with a world of guilt, we get a look into his life after the event that changed his and his Dad's lives forever and up to where we first meet him in Easy. Punishing himself with alcohol and drugs, we see Lucas lose his sense of self, failing at school he just doesn't care, it doesn't help that after his Mom's death that his Dad closed himself off, and barely speaks to him, which makes Lucas believe even more that his Dad blames him for what happened to his Mom when he was thirteen. After a downward spiral that lands him in jail, Charles a friend of his parents helps him to get back on his feet and to make something of himself, and it's through hard work and perseverance that he accomplishes just that, which ultimately brings him to the class where he notices Jacqueline for the first time, while she remains ignorant of his existence until the night she is almost raped, saved by Lucas she tentatively starts to let Lucas in, but will his past hold him back from moving forward with his life and find happiness with the first and only girl he's ever loved? I love this trend that seems to be happening with the New Adult genre with the books being rewritten in the males point of view, I also seem to find them more enjoyable than the original story, one nitpicky thing I just wish that the epilogue was set much farther in the future than just six months, I wanted to know where Lucas and Jacqueline were in say ten years time and what they were up to, but that's just one little thing that doesn't affect the story in any way. For those of you who were big fans of the first book, you definitely need to pick this book up, Tammara has written a story that far surpasses the first and will leave you clamoring for her next release. Highly recommended.

Lucas was my first book boyfriend. Only a few pages into Easy and I was hooked. Breakable is just as amazing. The author is a very gifted writer. Her word flow is smooth and captivating while sounding intelligent but not overly-complicated. I love the subtle humor as well!

So I absolutely loved Easy!!! It was a wonderfully written novel. This one Breakable... Was just okay to me. I have it a high rating because it does wrap a couple things up I feel the first one leaves out. I love learning why landon/Lucas is the way he is. But what I don't like is this is one big internal monologue. I know that's great for some but i felt like it was so internalized I got bored at times. It is a good book and I recommend it for anyone who has read easy it's just not my type of book.

    I wanted to read Breakable because I loved Easy, the romance, chemistry and emotion. It has been awhile since I read the first, which is good because its the same story, we just get Landon's perspective.     I fell just as hard for him this time as I did in the first reading. He is so hard working, loyal and working through his pain and past. I couldn't remember details from what exactly happened to him or Jackie's past for that matter so it felt like a fresh read.    It was nice to get more of an understanding behind why the Lucas vs Landon wasn't handled better. He is insecure at times and more of a sensitive soul that I would have imagined, but we get to see what has formed him into the person he is now.    We get to see Landon as a teen in high school fresh as he is dealing with the monsters of his past. We see his unlikely best friend situation as well as his emotional issues being so fresh and impacting every aspect of his life.    Things were pretty rough, and his life especially academically was going downhill, and we see the professor and long time family friend step in and give him some challenges and offer to help if he can pick himself up.     The ending was nice and I enjoyed reading this new perspective on Lucas and Jacquline's romance as well as what made Landon into who he became. Bottom Line: Good addition to Easy.

Words can't describe how much I loved Breakable! I read Easy over a year ago, probably almost two years ago and let me tell you that it is still holding on in the list of my top 5 fav romance books I've read, which is a lot. I loved Lucas in Easy and after reading Breakable I love him even more now that I understand exactly what happened in his past. It was amazing and I could not put Breakable down! I read it all in a day and was sad when it was over. I absolutely loved the way we got a peek inside Lucas's mind to see that he really was into Jacqueline long before he ever acted on it. I seriously can't say enough good things about this book! I was sad that it was over and I wished I could erase my memory of it and go back and read it all over again for the first time. It was that good. Idk if it's unhealthy to be in love with a fictional character but I'm pretty sure I'm in love with Lucas (haha). So, run don't walk to buy this book and Easy too of course! I promise you will not be disappointed. It was definitely not just a retelling of Easy, it showed parts of Easy we never got to see and also parts of Lucas's past and present struggles that aren't really mentioned in Easy. Bottom Line ,it was amazing and Tammara Webber can do no wrong in my book! Loved it!

How I love Landon Lucas Maxfield. While this book does retell his side of Easy, it always tells so much more. It fills in the gaps and tells his history that you crave to know in Easy. Webber has done a fantastic job with this book, and if you loved Easy I suggest you read this asap! I would also love to see a book about Boyce though too!

Tammara Webber's second book in the Contours of the Heart series, is not a sequel. It's not a prequel. It's a totally different animal. Readers are treated to parts of the Easy story from Lucas' point of view, while also learning the beginning of the story. What happened before. Landon and Lucas were totally different and now the reader will know why. Webber has gone to great lengths to expand on her first book and to give readers an original experience with Breakable. It is a coming of age story, that will have the reader going between heartbreak and joy. A an immensely unique and creative book by an up and coming author. What I liked: Easy was probably one of my favorite YA/New Adult novels ever. It wasn't your typical angsty story about a guy meeting a girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after. Not by a long shot. Easy dealt with some very serious topics including sexual assault. Lucas was in college at the time and his relationship with Jacqueline is anything but run of the mill. I have read a lot of books in my lifetime and I would be remiss if I didn't say, this was one of the best. With Breakable I was both excited and skeptical. I wasn't sure Webber could top a book of such magnitude and resonance.  Breakable is not just a re-telling of Easy from Lucas' younger self. It is a lot more than that. It goes back in time before the events of Easy. It takes the reader back into Lucas life, when he was still Landon. Landon was a mess. He had suffered a great loss and his outlook on life was less than perfect. He courted danger and sunk to some of lowest points I could imagine for someone of his age. It was tragic and it was poignant and it was so emotional that the reader will like feel wrung out of emotion when it comes to an end. I think it is imperative that the reader understand that this boy, becomes a man, with a lot of tough lessons and tough love. I loved seeing that part of him start to wake up from his grief. Webber takes the idea of re-writing a story from a different POV and turns it on it's head with this book. It's so much more! Breakable can be read as a stand alone, but I think it's important for the reader to read Easy first. Breakable tells some of the events and feelings from Lucas' point of view, but it does not go into the detail that the original book gives. This book is meant to be read after Easy and I hope readers take that into consideration. Learning how Landon became Lucas was an experience that would not have made near as much sense had it really come first. What I didn't like: I liked this entire book. The concept was unique and the delivery was unprecedented. I thought Webber pulled off something that not many authors could do. She made a re-telling of a story almost as important as the original. Bottom Line: If you read Easy you have to read this book. It just makes everything make sense. If you haven't read Easy, you are missing out. Read it and then read Breakable. It's a coming of age story. It's realistic portrayal of grief in it's extreme. It's a story about change and growth and figuring out not only who you are, but who you want to be. This is great one!

One of the best books I have ever read (and I have read THOUSANDS of books.) The three books are connected however, each are their own separate entity and can be read as such. I thought that "Easy" could not be surpassed, and then I read ""Unbreakable," and discovered that I was mistaken. My advice is read "Easy," be mesmorized and then read the series. You will not be sorry.... I

3.75 stars I loved Easy & think that Breakable was a good follow up. Getting to see what Landon went through after his mom's death was heartbreaking. So many people thought he'd amount to  nothing and made me want to jump into the book and hug him.  During Lucas's POV, I liked how his conversations with Jacqueline were skimmed over so it wasn't a verbatim retelling. But with that, I didn't feel their connection as much. Overall, I liked it and think if you enjoyed the first book you'd enjoy this one too. - ...She conjured love in the heart of a man whose soul had been frozen for years, anesthetized by too much pain and guilt to bear.

Oh my goodness I fell in love with Lucas and Jacqueline’s characters all over again. Easy was from Jacqueline’s point of view, her story, and now we get to read about Lucas’ story. Lucas lost his mother when he was a child. When she was alive he had everything he could ever want. Great parents, going to a great school, and he even had his first date. Then one night everything changed. His mother was raped and murdered, he heard it all and he could do nothing to stop it. Now years later Lucas is in college and he saved the girl he has a crush on from being raped. After reading Easy you know how the story plays out so I won’t bore you with that. I will say this I found the back and forth between Lucas’ past and his present pretty freaking interesting. Lucas used to have a major crush on a girl named Melody. The comparison between Jacqueline and Melody was pretty interesting. Both are wealthy and both, both had craptastic boyfriends, and both liked bad boy Lucas. There were some differences though but I found it interesting how there was the character comparison of past and present. I also found it interesting how Lucas was always worried that Jacqueline was afraid of him and always related him back to what happened to her. Almost every instance the couple had together Lucas worried he would scare her because of how they met. Completely different from how Jacqueline actually saw him. I enjoyed Breakable. While I have noticed in some reviews they thought Lucas was a creepy stalker for following Jacqueline around even though he didn’t know her, that’s kind of what Jacqueline did to Lucas after they met that first time so I’m not concerned with it. I found Breakable and Lucas completely swoon worthy and I enjoyed all the different characters in Lucas’ life we didn’t see much of during Easy. Great story.

After reading her first book I was really excited to get this and as I started reading I started to get bored as it is pretty much the same as the first and I just finished re-reading Easy. I skipped the last 30 pages after Buck attacked Jaqueline at the house. Not really happy with the way this book turned out.

I thought this story was FANTASTIC! The uniqueness of the past and present with the alternating POV's from Lucas’s perspective kept it fresh so it never once felt like Easy was rehashed. It was incredible delving into the world of Landon Lucas Maxfield and finding out all the details about him, his life, and growing up. Getting to learn about Landon's past after a tragic event was so heartbreaking and emotional. It was interesting learning all the details from his young perspective. He went through so much, and coped in so many wrong ways, some of it shocking. I really liked his best friend growing up, how they met, and how their unique bond was formed. There were just so many things I adored, the different elements and relationships, and it all pulled me in. The present day Lucas – whose story overlaps with Easy - felt so fresh to me even though I knew the story. I really learned and understood why he thought what he did and made the choices he did. It was all so heartfelt and there were so many emotional moments. Even though it was the same story line, it didn't seem like the same story to me, it held its own and I loved it. Of course there is Jacqueline's relationship with Lucas and it was just wonderful to read from his perspective. Not only how he felt about her and how he was drawn to her, but how her situation effected him. To see some of that thinking and to also know what he was feeling and the depth of his love had me completely invested.  The back and forth with the POV's made it a page turner for me because I kept wanting to know what was going to happen. The buildup of the past and everything coming together was great. I also loved the fact that we got to see Lucas's relationships in more detail and it gave me more of an appreciation for the Hellar's and even Lucas’s father. This book had a bit more heat, from teenage angst and lust to grown up need and love. I thought all the scenes were tastefully written and made sense. This was an intense and emotional story, extremely well written with fully developed characters and secondary characters. It had an excellent build between the different POV’s. Just brilliant. Loved it!

To read Lucas's POV gives more clarity to a story I already love sooo much! Easy is the first book and I have reread it many times and I thought I knew Lucas, but this book gives him more dimension and depth. Love it!
