Break Me is the second book in Amanda Heath’s Make or Break series. It can be read as a standalone.
“Wes, I don’t know what you want me to say here.” Royal’s voice is broken. Maybe he is broken. Maybe I broke him. Lord knows I’m broken myself.
“Don’t say anything,” I start off with. There are so many things I want to tell him. The one thing I want him to know, that I want him, I will never say aloud. “When push comes to shove Royal, you’ll break me. I’d never be the same after you. I’d be a shell of this girl.”
His face pales but he doesn’t step away. Something I had planned on. His hands caress my face before he says, “You have that wrong, Wesley. You’ll be the one to break me.”
Wesley Bridges was lost between the living and the dead. She was clinging to her boyfriend, who passed away unexpectedly. She was left with having no way to move on. Her best friends, Annabella and Pierce were too caught up in each other to save her. Even her family turned a blind eye, not able to bear her grief.
Then one day, Royal Sanders walked into her life. Tall, dark and sinfully handsome, but aren’t all the unattainable ones? At first it was nothing. She was asked to tutor him and found he’s different than even she thought. She even turned to Royal when things got too hard. And when she falls for him, she falls hard.
But Royal’s the enemy. A long drawn out hatred brews between her friends and Royal’s. That doesn’t seem important to her, considering she’s still in love with her dead boyfriend. A love triangle between life and death…who will win?
Grief is a powerful emotion but there are several different kinds of grief. Betrayal and heartache are still knocking on her door. Things are about to come crashing down around her. It will definitely break her, but will Royal be enough to save her?
So honestly this book is full of drama and angst and teens behaving like adults- adults that barely feature in said teens lives. Oh don't loads of hot sexed up teens who are loaded and have loads of sex. Add to that the clique politics , the out there relations to each other and all the bitchy crap you can think of.
And you know what, honestly, I still *looks around and whispers* liked it. Shhh. Do not tell my real life friends I did. Because uhm, they think I am all posh and dignified (seriously one of my friends told me that the other day... Clearly she doesn't know what I read!) and so way above gossipy shit. They also think I mostly read classics and stuff like that. Apparently I am not. *smirks*
The thing is it is freakn entertaining. It's your I feel like a juicy yet cute and fluffy fix. It's more hot and fluffy I guess. On top of that, I kinda liked the MCs. Though at first look they all shallow sexed up rich kids, they kinda reveal more depths as the books go on. Not to forget the boys are haawwt. The smut is good.
The story line is way out there, we talk super dramatics. But I enjoyed the ride.
So basically while you read it, it's seriously entertaining. Then when you done- don't think about too much. Because well, there are many many things one could point out, that are so overtop that they are kinda ridiculous. But see I didn't want a book I would think about. I was tired from a hectic work schedule and all I wanted is being entertained. And entertained I was! So if you looking for depth or seriously good writing, fabulous character building- well this isn't your book. No, this is a book, that is purely entertaining- in fact it's so entertaining that it got me wanting more. You know like that series, that everybody watched. The one that's ridiculously over the top, full of super hot sexed-up and bitchy characters?
Yep, exactly that one. Well, for me it's more Revenges. Either way, we all have that book or series, we love despite the fact that we know is a bit questionable at times- but we still watch/read it religiously...
Well simply put this is my guilty pleasure. And hell yeah I am so reading the next one. Especially after that freakn cliffy. I always liked Pierce. So a book about him? hmm I am AAAALLLL over that. Well at least when it will be finally released that it.... *runs to amazon to pre-order*
But whatever you do, don't tell my RL friends. Remember dignified? LOL! - well, let them think that if it makes them happy ;)
