And the future seemed more fragile than ever.
As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.
All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to ...more

Lucas' fucking book!!!!
hooting away to glory!
Although I am EXTREMELY happy that we are getting Lucas' book and a prequel too
I am also irritated that all the authors are doing the same things, re-writing a book in a different pov; just adding a little extra material and selling it just because we are crazy fans of their ...more
After reading Easy a few years back, I fell in love. With a guy named Lucas Maxfield. When I heard we were getting a book from Lucas’s pov, my excitement went through the roof! I am not always a fan of the same book from a different pov. I sometimes get bored because I know the story so to speak. The good thing about Breakable is that it was not simply the retelling of Easy in Lucas’s pov. It was a story divided. It almost felt like reading two books about two different ...more
I adored Easy, even re-read it a few times, and still consider it to be a major trailblazer for the NA genre. When this companion novel that contained only Lucas’s POV of Easy + his past was released, I didn’t even think of not reading it; I bought it right away and dived in. Unfortunately, I DNF-ed and shelved it away pretty soon. Now almost a year later, I picked it up once again and found myself flipping the pages so fast (and this is a pretty big book too) dying to get more details a ...more
I was so excited to read Breakable!!Lucas is one of my favorite book boyfriends!But unfortunately I'm so disappointed!!After reading this book I decide that I will not read again the same book with different POV...this is happening a lot lately and I can't understand why the authors do it!!I wanted to know about Lucas life but this could have happened in the first book with dual POV!!
In this book times goes from "before" with Lucas POV as Landon , before the day that changed his ...more

Rating: 2.5-3 stars
HEA: (view spoiler)[ Yes (hide spoiler)]
About two years ago, I’ve read my very first New Adult book. It was Easy by Tammara Webber. Before that I only read Young Adult, mostly Paranormal or Dystopia. But after reaching the end of Jacqueline and Lucas’ story, when I was swept of my feet and fell in love with contemporary romance, I knew my reading preferences chan ...more
Jacqueline knew how to pick favorites. So did I. -Landon
Easy and Breakable are both favorites of mine. Breakable is a companion novel and not meant to be read prior to Easy. It’s a compilation of Lucas/Landon's childhood and his pov of Easy. If you loved Easy than this book is like gaining access into what happened to him as a child and who he is as the mysterious man we meet in Easy.
When asked to review an audio copy of this book I felt like I received a backstage pass to a rock concert. I l ...more
Best Ever Audio Book!!
I think most of my friends will think I'm crazy for saying this, but I loved this more than Easy. I liked the first book, but it wasn't an all time favorite or anything. I listened to this on audio, which definitely had a lot to do with my enjoyment of it. The narrator's voice is so dreamy, seriously, he sounds exactly like I would imagine Lucas's voice. A fun fact for any of my friends who love Colleen Hoover, Zachary Webber, also narrated Maybe Someday:) The reason it t ...more
"I am planning to write Lucas's story (including prequel and some Easy overlap) later this year, and hope to have it out in early 2014."
OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!! EASY in my darling Lucas' POV!!!!
BEST EFFIN' NEWS EVER!!!!!!! AND YES! I WILL ABUSE MY CAPSLOCK KEY AND EXCLAMATION POINT FOR THISSS!!!!!!
WAIT, WHAT? WE NEED TO WAIT UNTIL 2014????
I. CAN'T. WAIT!!!!! I DEMAND THIS BOOK TO BE PUBLISHED SOON! HOW ABOUT MAKE IT SOONER? LIKE, RIGHT NOW?
I'm not going to tell you what this story is about because I am certain that everybody knows exactly the story of Jacqueline and Lucas. We saw how he saved her and how she fell in love with him.
Now we're able to see the other side: how in fact Jacqs saved him from himself, healed him and how he fell in love with her at the same time.
Rating: 3 Stars

LUCAS'S STORY (including prequel and some Easy overlap) *faints*
THIS WAS NOT EXPECTED, AT ALL!!!!
What is it with authors and this new trend to write alternate POV's without a simple warning??????
Not that I'm complaining....Just saying *shrugs*
But, nonetheless to say that:
WHAT AN EMOTIONAL RIDE!
** EASY should be read before starting this **
This book was so...so perfect! I loved Easy, loved and adored Lucas, and this reaffirms why his story is so affecting, so earnest. This is a prequel and shoots between Lucas's life post losing his mother and present where he meets Jacqueline in university. If you're thinking this is EASY but in Lucas's pov, you're mainly wrong: this is Lucas's pov, and many scenes from EASY are revisited, but this is not a duplication ...more
The Lucas' parts are his POV of the story that was told in Easy. So yes, this part is a retelling. The Landon parts are all new for the most part and are what happened in his life after the incident and before he goes to college.
I enjoyed the Lucas parts...it's always great getting the other character's POV. I t ...more
I'm very sorry guys, but this is what I thought of Breakable:
While I was curious about some things from his past (i.e.: like how he was before the tragedy and what exactly happened that fateful night), the constant back and forth insights from past and present were what ruined this for me. Well, that, and the very slow pacing and needless and unnecessary information from Lucas' "Landon" days that I just didn't need to know.
If anything, all I wanted to see was the ...more
Landon Lucas Maxfield has the perfect family until tragedy tears it apart and EVERYTHING changes….
Lucas' story is heartbreaking like no other...He's perfection, but I have conflicted feelings about this book…. 3-4 stars, maybe??? I loved some parts but I can’t escape the fact that in some areas of the story I was a little bored, to the point I was speed reading. Equally I wouldn't want to discourage readers from completing the Lucas/Jacqueline story because, at other times, my emotional ...more
I didn't TBR Breakable (insert audible gasp here). Nope, I did not. It had nothing to do with not liking Easy, because I LOVED Easy. I LOVE Tammara Webber, but my interest seemed disinterested. It's a commonality of late, take your best seller, write it from a different POV (usually the male's) and new life is breathed into an already told story. Don't get me wrong, several authors have been very successful in doing this, and I've love ...more
Disappointing. I loved Easy, it was well written, the romance was believable, and the characters were likeable. This on the other hand was pretty much the exact opposite — the story dragged, the relationship between Landon/Jacqueline was flat, and Landon was an awful character — his POV was so off putting.
-I didn't like the alternating chapters. Present day Landon was a weird creeper who said/thought/did nothing remotely interesting. I enjoyed reading certain parts of Landon's past thoug ...more

Oh god, how I love this story! Of course I didn't adore it as much as Easy but this came pretty close! Since this was a retelling, but from Lucas' POV instead of Jacqueline's, I already knew most of what was going to happen, but there were small parts and events added that were only briefly mentioned during the first book so that was pretty cool. I also loved reading about what Lucas was feeling throughout ...more
This cover. Lucas. YUM! I want this book now please! I hate waiting! Boooooo! I want it now. I want it now. I. Want. It. Now.! :(
Okay, sorry. Now that I got that out of my system...So, after reading Easy...well, before reading it actually, I was aware of Lucas getting his own book and though I hadn't met him yet, I felt like I knew him from friends reading it and talking non-stop about him the past year. So, after turning the last page, I was like.....
I WANT MORE. I NEED MORE. ...more
This book was disappointing. I really liked Easy but Breakable wasn't for me. I don't get it. Why would the authors bother with a second book while they can tell the story from two POV. And it would be better. But in this book, Lucas was a real stalker, his life was all about Jaqueline. I still like him, yet he isn't the same person anymore. The book was too long and too boring for me....more
I already know I'm going to get a lot of hate comments on this review, So I want to note I DID LIKE THE BOOK!!!
I'm just so freaking aggravated, not only at Webber who seems to be following in line with the masses but lots of our beloved authors (both tradition and self-published). This seems to be coming the normal for so many authors now a days... write a book we love from one POV, re-write that book from the other POV and toss a few kernels and antidotes so we don't feel too cheated or ...more
I'll start with the positive: Lucas didn't seem as much of a cardboard character in this book as the previous book. I liked the fact that Webber delved a bit into his childhood and pains over losing his mother (which was a huge significance in the previous book, but it felt tacked on in the latter part ...more
