This story is a novella and a continuation of Jackson and Andi's story from book one, Broken. It is best to have at least read their story before continuing on with this book but it can be read as a standalone if necessary.

Jackson and Andi have been through a lot. Against all odds, two broken people found each other and somehow became whole. Life should be perfect for the

This novella is heartbreakingly beautiful. Read it with a box of tissues.
Crushed is an extension of Andi and Jackson’s story which began in Broken, the first book of the Breaking the Rules series. You really need to read the first four to truly get the full experience with this novella.
Andi and Jackson had a hard road to be together. However, what most romance novels leave out is the struggles of life after the standard HEA. Now, don’t get me wrong, most of the time, I love that. I’m a sappy r

Such a beautiful and heartbreaking story.

Having read the entire Breaking The Rules series, I knew that Andi and Jackson were having some problems. So, when I found out that K.Webster was giving us this novella, I was like "YES, more Jackson and Andi!" However, I was warned: "Amy, you're going to need tissues" and I did. This book wrecked me.

The struggles and loss that Andi and Jackson went through were so difficult, so realistic, so easy to relate to. My heart broke for them as they went throug

This book (insert sigh here). I cried sad tears. I cried happy tears. This novella is from K. Webster's "Breaking the Rules" series. To really know the characters, I would suggest at least reading Andi and Jackson's book "Broken". You will not be disappointed. I fell in love with this entire series almost instantly.

Crushed is the next chapter in Andi and Jackson's story and it deals with the very real life struggles that many women keep quiet. Miscarriage and infertility. K. details the pain an

Crushed is Jackson and Andi's story about their struggle to have a baby and the utter heartbreak and devastation they endured along the way. Whether you or someone you know has tried and failed to have children you know how hard this is, not only for the woman but for the couple as a whole. Andi is at her lowest point ever after having suffered multiple miscarriages and watching her closest friends easily conceive and give birth to many healthy kids. Andi is also taking fertility medications tha ...more

This book is gut-wrenching and heart meltingly sad. Fair warning have a box of tissues by your side. But if you have read any of K. Webster's books before you know they all have a reason for what the characters go through and always get their happy endings some way or the other. Jackson and Andi are from the first book in this series Broken. That was when their story began and this book gave them their happy ending that they deserve. K. Webster is amazingly talented. This book takes you on a sad ...more

EEEKKKKKKK! I Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Jackson! I have been waiting months and months for Jackson and Andi's novella. It's no secret they have been struggling for YEARS to conceive. As usual, I was a balling mess while reading this. The torture and emotions Andi and Jackson go through is just so heartbreaking. Unfortunately, there are many women that go through the same problems Andi is going through with miscarriages. Jackson is struggling. He loves his wife so much and can't take the pain in ...more

When your soul is crushed until it's unrecognizable can the broken pieces of you still fit with its other half? This book is a huge battle of incredible love and outstanding loss. We see a whole new side of Jackson in this book, and I love it, while he's still his usual alpha self, he gets so much deeper in this book and I don't think the emotions on either side of things could have been any more real even if it was taped. It's heartbreakingly intense, and it crushes you, but it is worth it in t ...more

OMG What do I say about this book!!

What an emotional book, even more so for me, because the issue is very close to my heart.

I Love Jackson and Andi, they are my favourite couple in the Breaking The Rules Series. What they are going through is truly heartbreaking. I cried ugly tear. It was so sad to see Andi completely shut down, and poor Jackson just feels helpless, coz he can't do anything to help Andi. All he wants to do is protect her.

As I said it's a matter close to my heart, so I know what

omg! all the feels with this novella. Jackson and Andi are one of my all time favorite couples. love love love them. author K does an amazing job of showing the right emotions at the right time. Jackson is still his super sexy self and gets even hotter being Andis rock. I didn't know it was possible for him to get any better but he does. bless Andis heart! this woman has been through hell and back a few times and she's still a bad ass. I love her!

Words can not describe how incredible Andi & Jackson's story is. We have been with them from the beginning of their relationship all the ups and downs twists and turns but nothing can prepare you for the ultimate test in their relationship. We see the struggles that Andi has gone through but you are cheering her on and knowing the love Jackson has for her only makes you want to reach out grab the tissues and go along for the ride hoping the two of them can find the HEA they both desperately ...more

Wow. Amazing novella. I squeezed a little of my time and dug into this while waiting for my appointment yesterday and I just can't stop those uncontrollable tears streaming. It's so embarrassing! LoL.

Life is so unfair. (Cliche. Tsk tsk) And that is what Jackson and Andie's marriage life is. But as it is, there's rainbow always after the storm. ;) Andie and Jackson never give up and so they deserve that ending. I have wished for a longer, full-lenght novel but I know everything ended

This is a very emotional story about Andi and Jackson. Yes, there were so many sad tears, but glad there were some happy tears as well. This story is about family and what it means for the bonds of families during their difficult times. Jackson is the rock in the family for Andi. Andi comes to realize the good in a time when there was so much darkness.

I was given this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

“I’ll fight blind in the darkness for you. I’ll always fight for you.”

I am a newcomer to the Breaking The Rules series, and was a little hesitant to read Crushed because I hadn’t read the previous books. If you are a reader that is in a similar predicament, don’t hesitate! Take the plunge!

Andi and Jackson’s story is one of enduring love persevering through hardship and pain. It is seeing the storm, going through it, and comi

heartbreaking and uplifting

We continue our story of Jackson and Andi. These two perfect, meant for each other people are fighting Mother Nature who continues to break Andi and Jackson's hearts repeatedly with multiple miscarriages.

At the beginning of the story we find Andi pregnant and doing everything to keep her baby while Jackson is trying to keep her from falling apart. Enter the opportunity to have two babies at once and Jackson takes that chance in hopes of helping beautiful Andi. They me

In this novella, we follow Andi and Jackson and to be honest if I knew it was such a sad story despite the HEA, I would have prefered NOT TO READ IT because I prefer to keep my memory of them HAPPY AND SEXY. It was hard to see Andi acting so out of sorts and Jackson try

Crushed is Right

Wow. Seriously emotional rollercoaster followup. Great HEA though. Truly heartbreaking story line. So hard to express in words the feelings this book evokes. It is definitely worth the read. 5 stars for an amazing story about love, unimaginable loss, and blessings in the darkness.

I loved this novella. It deals with a very heavy issue which is written about so very well. I could feel each and every emotion both characters were portraying which, to me, shows how fantastic of a writer this author truly is. 5 stars for this heartbreakingly beautiful book.

OMG!!! This book destroyed me. I messaged Kristi half way through begging for a happily ever after. Luckily I got it, but by god did I cry before I got it. This single book just goes to show just how talented Kristi is. Get the tissues and chocolate ready!
