I believe the 1.5 Destroy Me, really set the scene up for Warner and Juliette's connection since Warner was never really given the chance to develop as a character. But of course, that could be just me defending the #Warnette ship.

I've read them both, so if you have any questions about how it relates to the series, I'd love to discuss it with you. :D(less)

I figure since I already have this "preview," I might as well write a review for Addie Kent's novella.


When I thought I couldn't dislike him more than I did, after reading Fracture Me, Addie Kent proved me wrong. End of review.

P.S.: Just because Adam didn't turn out to be your perfect little fucking angel with a perfect little fucking personality does not mean he was falsely

„Shit. This is even worse than I was expecting.“

Yes, that’s an actual quote from “Fracture me” and damn me if this wasn’t an adequate summary for the entire novella! *lol*

Give Adam a chance.
I thought.

Maybe he isn’t all that bad.
I was convinced.

Probably I misunderstood him the same way everyone misunderstood Warner at first.
I kind of hoped.

… And then I read “Fracture me”.

I was wrong!!!

Adam is still a stupid moron and if anything the book just confirmed my initial suspicion. That boy is actua

Let this be about Kenji. Please. (Since I don't think it will be about my favorite sexy blond man, Warner)

To Adam fans

For some reason I thought Fracture Me would sway me (a little) to Team Adam but no such luck. Every time Kenji and Adam talked about Warner in front of Juliette she seemed generally interested in the conversation while she was practically comatose the rest of the time.

King Warner is slaying even when he's not there!

Five Stars for Kenji and Juliette's friendship
Zero Stars for Adam's dumb ass
Hate Adam since book one, until now and forever.

I don't know Adam is just a character which does not sit right with me... always there has been something off about him.
This novella for me is a revelation. It’s also a foreshadowing. It surprises me both in good and sad way. I’m very much vocal of my adoration towards Warner but I don’t have that much hate on Adam. I liked him just fine. The reason why I don’t prefer him is that he’s sort of bland. He doesn’t have much character and something’s telling me that he wasn’t the right guy for Juliette. Then Destroy Me and Unravel Me came that showed things that support my theory. But Fracture Me, ironically, which wa ...more

..........................don't read it.*cough* sorry, what was that?

Here's the thing. We've already got a few hundred pages of Adam's BS and me tearing my hair out at this point.
I swear, all that's in his mind is just:

Well, my dear asshole Adam, my amazing plan is:

Or we can put it the simple way:
Adam+book=DON'T READ IT.

i’m officially starting an adam kent hate club. my dislike for him is now 110% justified bc that man is the WORST — the way he called juliette “the weak link” BOYYY she will end ur fucking life. this novella was so pointless it was just adam being an asshole, like thank god for kenji he made it tolerable.

UPDATE: SAY IT ISN'T SO! Adam's perspective? Really? Why in the world would you give Adam his own novella when you have WARNER (Warner!) whom you could write about. I mean, it's WARNER! Such a complex, tortured anti-hero. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. Even Kenji would have been better than Adam.

UPDATE NOW THAT I'VE READ IT: I don't know how you could want Juliette to end up with Adam after reading this. Just as Destroy Me showed me who Warner really is, Fracture Me has revealed t

Yeah, this was boring. I've not got much else to say really. I knew I wasn't going to enjoy it but mainly read it for the details. It gave us a bit of an insight into Adam but it was no think like Warner's because it just confirmed everything we already knew.

Feb 2013 - I really, really, really want this to be Kenji's story or Warner again but I'm pretty sure it's going to be Adam :( I don't dislike Adam, I just find him a little boring!

Negative all the stars

I hate Adam with all my heart.
This is not a usual review. This is just a rant. None of my (sort of new) structure that I use. Just me ranting about Adam.

First off: Adam is so misoginistic and sexist. In case you haven't noticed, Juliette is a strong individual. You don't own her. Stop. You don't own her, or know what's best for her. Don't act like it. She's not a piece of property. It pisses me off that he likes her only because she's quiet and submissive. The moment she gr

Hmm... "Fracture Me" was an okay read. I know it's not something i'll ever take the time to read again that's for sure. There were a few sad bits like, the parts with Adam and his little brother James, and the loss of so many people and of course the loss of Omega Point. Things quickly go from bad to worse, and there was so much destruction and devastation i

Weird how things can change in very short periods of time! At the beginning of this series, there were Adam and Juliette, and I couldn’t imagine anything else. Then came Destroy Me, Warner’s novella that showed a whole new side of him, and (to my own surprise) I started thinking he might be a better choice for her after all. But my heart was breaking for poor Adam. I saw him as a nice and honest – if somewhat plain – boy, not strong enough and certainly not insightful enough to fully understand ...more

The sadness in my heart when we realize that Adam was not the one for Juliette. Aaron (Warner) and Kenji are the only ones who care about Juliette. Kenji crying was heartbreaking.

I like that Adam cares more for James than Juliette. Adam and Juliette are toxic together anyway. Also it's realistic that he cares more for his little brother who's been with him his whole life than a girl he met only a few months ago.

I'm not giving this a low rating because of Adam being an asshole because it's so obvious he's being set up to fail as a love interest. I'm just going to go along with his stick up his ass attitude.

Fracture Me is a clearly transparent attempt to shove stragglers to Team Warner.

How dare he care about his brother more than his girlfriend? How dare he long for a few minutes of peace instead of charging off ass over teakettle to save Juliette?

The playing field is skewed towards Warner, let's get that in the open. He doesn't have anyone left to care about, but Adam does.

Is that what we want, ladies? Boys with no ambition but to serve? If it is, take off your pink sweater and throw your gender

Italian review:


I liked this novella because it made me understand Adam better.
And it made me realize that he is definitely NOT the right man for Juliette. She needs someone who can actually accept her for what she is, who doesn't have to fear her in any way, and Adam is not it. He "loves" her, in his own way, but he doesn't understand her - he loves the idea of her, but she's so much more than that and I don't think he would love the Real
