Loved! Definite 5 Stars! was a bit confused at first wondering who the hell Brandon was, but once i started the first couple of pages and realized that it was Sofie's Brandon i knew that this would definitely be Interesting.

I <3 Brandon! he turned out to be reeeeally sweet (even thou still a hard ass!) & his background story was sooo fukd up and sad! I'm glad he ended up with his HEA. R

Breaking Brandon stole my heart away! 5 Stars!

I had hoped that one day Brandon would get his own story and once I found out he did, I have never sought out Amazon so fast in my life for that dreaded "One Click Buy" button. Oh that button gets me in so much trouble! However, the trouble that I got in for this book was well worth it!

Breaking Brandon.. WOW! What's there to say besides it being one of the most emotionally touching Elizabeth Reyes books I have EVER read. This book was beyond fab

When your favorite Author/s releases a new book, it doesn't matter what it's about - You just read it! Without hesitation. Cause you know it'll be awesome either way. That's what I did with this book.

I had no clue who Brandon was in beginning. And when I did finally piece together that he was THE BRANDON from the Moreno Brothers series, I'll admit that I was a bit curious as to how he turned out!

I loved everything about this story. Even though, their love for each other seemed to

Well hello sweetness. I've been looking for you. Yes you. The new Elizabeth Reyes book. I've been waiting for you and here you are. So glad to you could make your way to my Kindle.

No one has the right to know what you're feeling deep inside but yourself. Showing it is a sign of weakness.

So this is pretty much the anti-social networking statement. In the age of Facebook, Pintrest, Twitter and Goodreads we now think everyone has the right to know how we are feeling. In 140 charac

YAY! I was so excited to read this book. Brandon finally gets a voice.

We first meet Brandon Billings in Sweet Sofie Moreno Brother's series book 3, where he developed strong feelings for Sofie. Unfortunately, for Brandon that is, she already had someone special in her life. My heart broke for this B.R.O.K.E.N. man then and it broke even more once his story was told in his own book. Brandon was made out to be such a bad guy in Sofie's book however, I had a soft sp

Brandon was definitely one of my least favourite characters after Sweet Sofie. Everything that had happened between those two, was just too weird and I was rooting for Eric at that moment. So yeah, Brandon could have gone to hell for all I cared.

Enter my surprise when I found out the guy was getting his own book. Obviously I had my doubts, but like always I trust in Elizabeth Reyes to make it good and she definitely did. Goodbye weird stalker boy, hello hot marine! A couple years have gone by an

Holy crap that book was a crazy emotional roller coaster! There were many points during the book (especially at about 92%) that I wanted to sit down with the author and tell her to call down, Satan! I wanted to take custody of Brandon and Regina until the author could learn to play nice. I'm glad I couldn't though because this read turned out to be epic. I couldn't stop reading. This book left me breathless and begging for more. I've been curious about Brandon since Sweet Sofie and I will say th ...more
4-4.5 Stars!

I loved Brandon!!! He's just amazing. I do believe that this is the most adult book Elizabeth Reyes has written. By adult I don't mean in sexual nature but character maturity. Her other books come off very NA but in Breaking Brandon it seems more strictly contemporary romance. The characters were more grounded and I think Elizabeth Reyes' writing skills are growing.

One thing that surprised me was I actually didn't like the Morenos in this book. They can come off overbearing and I nev

I liked Brandon when he was introduced in the Moreno Brothers series. Even though you didn't hear a lot about him.
In this book my heart just went out to him and when he Regina I knew it was going to be good.

Loved it when he called her 'My Princess'...!

Elizabeth Reyes did not disappoint, can't wait to read more about this family and whatever else she writes about.

So if you like Romance books, then this one is definitely for you!

Rated 250 stars.

This is a damn good book. If I didn't love "Romero" more than I love all four of my stepsisters (they're irritating), it would be my favorite Elizabeth Reyes book. Still being my second favorite Elizabeth Reyes book probably isn't too shabby if you give a fig about the random lists I make in my head.


Back to "Breaking Brandon" which, again, is a freaking awesome book, romance, and entry in parallel (you read that correctly) Elizabeth Reyes' series.

Breaking Brandon is a spin off to the Moreno brothers so if your a fan of Elizabeth Reyes and follow her books then you meet Brandon in Sweet Sofie. If you haven't read the Moreno Brother’s Series or the 5th Street series, I highly recommend you moving them up on your TBR. I LOVE Elizabeth's books. Breaking Brandon did not disappointment, it may be my favorite yet, but then again I say that with every book Elizabeth releases....emotional, intense, so good, there is just something ab

Second book in the Fate series. I absolutely loved this story. Brandon was such a wonderfully crafted character the author has really excelled herself creating him. I loved how this closed off man was gradually broken down by his feelings for Regina. He had not had the best start in life, he'd joined the marines eventually becoming a gunnery sergeant. From the very first moment he meets Regina she affects him, determined that he remain aloof to her he's not very nice.

OMG! This book stirred up emotions that I have never felt while reading a book.

I was hating on Sofia and her gossipy friends for awhile. Sofie for what she did to Brandon and her gossipy in laws/friends for talking about it to Regina. It was like they wanted Regina to feel bad about Brandon under the guise of warning her. It made me so mad. I think Brandon was very brave to even go around them. Also the way his mom died, the author was so vivid in her descriptions of it. It made

I was excited to read this one, because I had a soft spot for Brandon. I felt that he was misunderstood and a bit broken. And I still like him after reading his book and I was glad that he found someone who loved him for him. It did take me a while to feel the chemistry between them though. I had trouble connecting with Regina initially and I think that's why. I just didn't see it right away. Eventually, I felt like the story picked up a bit and I started to enjoy them. I loved the tie in with t ...more

This was a typical Elizabeth Reyes book, meaning I totally loved it! I was a bit reluctant to read Brandon’s story as he was the antagonist in Sophie’s story. The author knows exactly how to make you adore her characters. This was a perfect combination of a sweet/entertaining/glued-to-the-book romance.

She never disappoints! Elizabeth Reyes does it again! What can I say, I am a HUGH fan, I will always read anything done by her. You can't help but fall in love with the characters she write about and that's exactly what has happened here. LOVE LOVE LOVE Brandon, his story just breaks my heart! you want him to have is HEA.

In Sweet Sofie, I felt bad for Brandon, although I was ultimately Team Eric. I have loved all of the Moreno's since Forever Mine, but I wanted to protect Brandon from them in this story. In Breaking Brandon, I was Team Brandon. I just wanted him to be happy. I love everything Elizabeth Reyes writes. She has a way of making her characters so lovable and relatable. ...more

i didn't see how their love developed. it was too fast especially for a guy who doesn't want attachment.
didn't like the characters much.

sofie? yes, she's nice, but selfish. did she tell truth to her brothers? i didn't know. she owed it to B. i didn't finish ( i skipped) the whole book.i hate her. that's it.

Lindy's Thoughts:

Breaking Brandon by Elizabeth Reyes is the second book in the Fate Series, a spinoff of The Moreno Series. We first met the delicious, BAMF Marine, Brandon in Sweet Sofie. Brandon and Sofie came from the same neighborhood, and had become close friends their senior year in high school. Even though Sofie had been in love with Eric, Angel's best friend, for most of her life, she was really attracted to Brandon. When attraction between Sophie and Brandon sparked, along with Sofie's

Breaking Brandon was nothing like I expected. It turned out to be soooo much more! I’ve been a fan of Elizabeth Reyes for a while. I devour her books the moment they go live and my life is put on hold until I finish reading the very last page. I forget about EVERYTHING!!! We got to meet Brandon in Sweet Sofie, which is the third installment in The Moreno Brother’s Series. If you still did not read that series … I suggest you put it on your TBR list ASAP, because it’s AWESOME! I’m not go

Well that just took a turn for the worse…

The book was wonderful and interesting about two thirds of the way through, until the author fell back on her old tropes that she used in her teen romance novels - immaturity, jealousy and gossiping (as teens are want to do). SPOILERS! Brandon and Gina’s relationship was going well, evolving while allowing the readers to get to know Brandon’s back story and what made him who he was when we were introduced to him in Sofie’s book.

Breaking Brandon is sexy, daring, and is definitely one of Elizabeth Reyes's best book yet.

I read this book the day of release and once I finished it I had to take a couple of days to take it all again, and then of course I had to read it all over again before writing a review on it. This has happened a couple times and I finally think I have the capability of writing all my feels down on, on the internet.

“People handle things differently, and everybody grieves differently, okay? No, I never considered taking my life, but think about it. What did I do? I did the very same thing you almost did. Maybe not literally but I made the decision to stop living. I went through the motions of waking and working and continuing with my life, but I wasn’t living.
