Book review: Breakable

Author: Tammara Webber

Release date: 7th May 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Target audience: New Adult (frequent & detailed sexual references)
Publisher: Penguin

Breakable is a companion novel to Easy. It’s the same story told from Lucas’ point of view.
I decided to read this because I wanted something light. When you’re studying all the time, your brain can only compute so much. I wanted to read something quick too as all these Robin Hobb novels I’m addicted to take a long time!

This novel takes us inside Lucas’ head and takes us into his past. It’s a split narrative between him now and him growing up as Landon after his mother is brutally murdered.

I enjoyed it but not as much as Easy. The problem with it is if you’ve read Easy, then you’re not really learning anything new (just some additional back story). I feel this doesn’t really work. I thought it would tell the story from the end of Easy as a sequel but sadly that is not the case.

The other issue I had with it was there wasn’t enough action or drama. It seems like a really self-indulgent book – full of erotic moments which at times were simply annoying.

Overall, I’m being honest here and saying that I was disappointed. Read Easy – that’s great. Give this a miss. (You could take a bit of inspiration from Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl and write your own ‘what happened next’).
