Received from the author for a honest review. I enjoyed this college age love story about two young college students who meet up again after being in high school many years before. Each have their own way of remembering their high school encounter. Blaine always like him and Jason always thought she was hot but never felt they were in the same league. 3 years later-
We have the usual ups & downs & over thinking & no communicating - with some surprises the story is enjoyable.

It was good. It wasn't my favorite though. Her sisters husband is an ass. I like seeing Jason and Blair but they definitely had issues.

I liked the storyline for the most part. There however was way to much profanity. I felt the storyline was strong enough to not warrant the amount of profanity in the book. I work at a university and I know there are students and others who talk like that; but I know there are just as many who don’t. Also I felt there was one part that was irresponsible of the Author to put in. That was the part about Roy chugging the beer from the keg and the praise he receives for being able to do that.

If you’ve been following my blog and my reviews for a while then you should know by now that I am a big fan of New Adult Contemporary Romance Novels. When I got the chance to review Jennifer Snyder’s Break You, I was all for it. It fits right in with the kind of books that I usually read. As I was reading it though, I found that it didn’t appeal to me as much as I hoped it would. I was t

This is book #1 of the Coldcreek series. It can be read as a standalone and has an HEA. There is no cheating in this book.

NOTE: This book is written in dual POV which is my absolute favorite! I really, really dislike spoilers - so if this review seems vague, that's why!

**SHANYN'S REVIEW**

Blaire is a girl who has her life together. She is going to college, while working at a nursing home. She studies hard, makes good grades, and wants certain things for her life. Jason is going to college, has a part-time job, and is living a little further from home, since he wanted distance from his small town once his father passed away.

Blaire and Jason were friends in high school, and both had a secret crush on the other. Now, they are both in college, and run into each ot

I want to start off by saying that this was a cute read! I really like the plot as well as the character development. So here's what I thought while reading "Break You"

Anytime I read a book, and find quotes that I think are noteworthy (deep, funny, ridiculous) I highlight them.
One of my highlighted lines was when Blaire says "Seriously, Paige! I feel like shit right now. Dog shit that was ran over. Twice." I can just see me or one of my friends saying th

Blaire Hayes and Jason Bryant were two high school friends who had feelings for each other but never acted on them. When they meet up again a few years later at a party, they are still attracted to each other, and they take the chance to act on these feelings.

Break You was sweet, funny, romantic story that had some drama, was emotional at times, and had a prologue that left me wanting to read more.

Gorgeous story! Full review to follow.

Edit.

Within a few pages of starting this book, I knew that this story was going to be special. Everything about it felt real to me, the characters, the settings, the feelings and emotions that people were experiencing. It just felt like real life, which is something that always endears me to a story. As nice as the 'heroine meets hero and they live happily ever after' is, it is always comforting to see realistic characters overcome hardship, much like we do

Blaire and Jason

Blair runs into her high school crush at a college house party. It was a bit of a shock since she knew he was going to school in another state. He was the last person she expected to see. When Jason saw her at the party, he recognized her as the sweet, unobtainable, bookish (in his eyes it made her intimidating) girl. They met up at the keg then went to the front door where she ripped into him for being an inconsiderate jerk in tenth grade. He had to have at that point...

This is book #1 of the Coldcreek series. It can be read as a standalone or out of order, however, it will make the series flow better if you read it in order. This is the second book that I have read by Jennifer Snyder and I throughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Jennifer's writing was smooth flowing, fun, and easy to read. I connected well with the characters (especially Blaire) and found them to be fun and refreshing, and the story c

Break You is a quick new adult romance about Blaire and Jason, re-connected from their brief moments at high school when Jason used Blaire to get to her friend. I found this book sweet and an easy, relatable book for teenagers and young adults.

I really enjoyed this – it was cute, funny and full of angst at times, always a pleasant read. The characters were great too and I thought the author did a perfect job at making them rea

Original review at Gabic Reads as part of the Break You Blog Tour.

I loved Blaire's character. She was strong and independent, but also with some introverted tendencies. She wants to get through her schooling and earn her RN license. I was kinda iffy about how I felt about Jason. Some moments I loved him, like when he fights for a spot in Blaire's life. And there where some moments when I disliked him, like when he hung out with Marla (<- bad decision). I do feel like Jennifer did an amazing j

This was such a hard book to review...

The storyline was good, but the characters - I think I ended up feeling sorry for them when I really just wanted to fall in love with them...
Jason was a bit of a clueless douche... for someone majoring in psychology he really didn't get why Blaire was p'd with him so much, and it wasn't until after the 60% mark that he picked up his game and I actually started to like him...
And Blaire was such a pushover... she totally accepted Jason's explanations without q

“Her eyes were glued to the tv; she didn't even notice when half of the noodles she'd attempted to cram in her mouth fell into her lap.
Shifting my eyes, I realized why. It wasn't a tv show she was watching-it was the movie Magic Mike. And dear God, I didn't blame her for tuning me out. How Channing Tatum landed those moves blew my freaking mind. This couldn't be something he was taught, that was for sure. No, not even close, those dance moves were something he was born knowing how to do. And Jesus he looked good doing them.”
