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 guy

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

A companion novel to Easy and a tragic backstory for, Lucas, done masterfully by a talented author. That being said, I would love nothing more than to have Webber write a happy ending for Lucas’s father, someone to help heal all that brokenness because that man needs so much love. Sniff.

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.

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
Kat Kennedy
Breakable by Tammara Webber follows the same storyline, essentially, as the previous novel, Easy. Only it’s like Easy’s opposite in every way. Easy was about Jackie, Breakable is about Lucas. Easy was awesome, Breakable is a messfest of creepernatural behaviour. Instead, Webber should write a novel on how to ruin a romance in three easy steps. Step one being obsessive stalking. Step two is a monotonous origins story for Lucas that holds as much interest as an inflatable kiddie pool. Fun for five ...more

** EASY should be read before starting this **

This book was 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

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.

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:

Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞
Well, we wanted more Lucas and we got him but that's not always a good thing! The story is set up in alternating sections of Landon and Lucas with the incident being the starting point.

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 adore Easy. I adore this story. But this companion was pretty unnecessary. The first book offers such a flawless perspective on rape and consent, and this book seemed like it was just a tribute to learning more about Lucas rather than actually offering a moral like Easy did. I would suggest skipping this one, unless you really wanna hear more about Lucas's backstory. But a lot of the time I was bored and the book is literally the same as the first one, so you're not missing anything, even if y ...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.

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.

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.

When doubts become ignorance, and ignorance becomes awesome….

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

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.

actual rating: 2.5 stars

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.

Quick review for a quick read. I feel like I could write a book for the problems in this narrative alone, but I think I'll try to summarize in brief what worked in this book for me and what didn't.

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
