"There are some things in life you aren't supposed to move past. They become a part of you, they define you, and you just have to learn how to live with it."

4 Breaking Stars!

It's always great to read a book that evokes different emotions and introspection. When I finished reading this novella, it kind of blew me away. The story was very absorbing, from the sudden events in the beginning to the internal struggling both characters faced as they tried to make difficult decisions.

It's always great to read a book that evokes different emotions and introspection. When I finished reading this novella, it kind of blew me away. The story was very absorbing, from the sudden events in the beginning to the internal struggling both characters faced as they tried to make difficult decisions.

Feel me Break falls into the heartbreaking and sad category. It's a prequel story about two characters named Chloe Reed and Nick Grayson. When Chloe's brother died and her parents separated, her world fell apart which made her become indifferent and self-destructive. For a brief moment, Nick came into her life and prevented her to end her misery and instead gave her hope. But in a sudden twist of fate Nick met an accident and ruined a person's life which scarred him emotionally.

What I especially loved about this novella was the beautiful writing. It was easy, comfortable, and engaging which moved along at a good pace. The characters were also well thought-out. They're not difficult to connect and I cared about them deeply. I also found the romance very promising. The ending kind of wrecked me, though. I wished both characters didn't go through that situation wherein (view spoiler). It was kind of unbelievable and distressing when it all happened at the same time. :(

This novella, as a whole, was a great start to a series. It was a quick and easy read but it didn't fail to move me. I am thrilled for the first full-length novel to come. I hope to find a lot more surprises!

You saved me that night, Nick. So let me save you."

In a serendipitous moment, two strangers from wholly different backgrounds meet and will change both their lives forever. Chloe Reed has been carrying the burden of her family's issues and, in a moment of complete vulnerability, wanted to end her life. Nick Grayson, a boy from an affluent family and a good life, drives by where she is and inevitably saves her life.

That moment changed Chloe's life for the better, but it also changed Nick's life for the worst.

As you all may know by now I am not really a novella reader. However the summary of Feel Me Break really stood out to me and so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did because I really enjoyed it. There is a whole lot of emotions packed into this novella!

I couldn't quite stop my chest from heaving during and after reading this book. You know that feeling at the beginning when you also want to crease your forehead because you are worrying about your missing son while his sister complained because you are an overreacting worrywart. Then boom, you feel all guilty and contrite when you learned the truth about your brother. Ah,I couldn't explain my angst and pain and trepidation.

Do you ever feel like stopping time? Like the world around you stops for a few minutes, but you keep going… it would be so much easier to breathe.

What a Heart breaking story!!!
That's what came to my mind the moment I finished reading the novella. For one, you can feel it the moment you started reading it. First few pages and you were immediately thrown to a scene that will grip your heart and wrench it. I was hooked literally, I keep on turning the pages with my heart so broken not know/>

This small novella kind of blew me away by the impact it caused. I think it was the perfect beginning to Nick and Chloe’s story.

I really liked the writing, and I think the author paints a very good image about depression and some self destructive behaviours.

I’m still not sure how I feel about the two main characters, because they both change a great deal

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

Feel Me Break is the prequel novella to Tara R.’s upcoming full length novel, Watch Me Rise. Since this is a novella, I will be keeping my review short, sweet and to the point. Feel Me Break follows our two main characters, Chloe Reed and Nick Grayson. After having experienced a tragic loss, Chloe loses herself and eventually starts contemplating her own will to live. But she is given a second chance when Nick com
This may have been a short read but it was certainly a sweet one.

I loved the author's writing right from the start. It was smooth and enjoyable and drew me into the story with ease. Although this book is clearly setting the scene for what's to come, it was no less enjoyable. I was forewarned about the cliffie but to me it was more of a pause at the point where Chloe and Nick's friendship was about to begin in earnest.

I really enjoyed Chloe and Nick's connection, despite the setting, and especially t

Chloe is left to pick up the broken pieces of her life after her brother died. She meets Nick when she was in a very low point in her life. In her mind, he saved her.

In a blink of an eye, Nick's life is forever altered by one accident. He's the one who needs saving now, and Chloe is determined to return the favor.

In my opinion, Nick and Chloe both had shitty parents. Chloe's parents deserted her when she needed them the most, and Nick's parents didn't handle the situation

This is the prequel book to the series (or book, not sure). It was quite short, but the premises sounds promising.

As a Master in Psychology I can say the main characters are pretty broken and they are gonna have to overcome all the shit that happened to them in the past. There are some very heavy topics.

I am excited for the book though! It's going to be so deep!

So keep an eye on this. It's gonna be good!

Three and a half stars!
There is serious potential with these characters but it’s just not there yet. This story is a prequel of sorts to Watch me Rise. From the story here you can’t read this one without continuing to read Watch me Rise right after. The ending isn’t really a cliffhanger but you can’t really call it a happy for now either. It just ends with you wanting to know what happens next and if Chloe and Nick will get together for real at some point.

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Nick and Chloe meet one fateful night. Nick saves Chloe from ending her life and after he leaves her with a friend, his life changes in an instant. Both Nick and Chloe are broken and think about each other all the time but they don’t know how to contact one another. Even though they hardly know each other, that night brought them together.

This is the first book/novella that I've read by this author. I think I read that the author is Canadian - not a damn thing wrong with that but they do use different words and phrases for some things. No big deal ... just thought I should pass that along since I was a little confused at first but I quickly picked up on what (I thought) that the author meant.

Okay, I'm not going to delve too deep into this one since it is only 70 pages. If I'm not careful, I'll let something slip and then I'll ha

Chloe Reeds was just sixteen when everything in her life went wrong. Suffocating alone and on the brink of simply just giving up, she was saved by Nick Grayson, a bright and handsome guy with a perfect life. The night of their meeting gave Chloe the strength to go on but turned Nick into a guilt-infested and scarred man. One thing remained the same; both of their hearts had been filled with only each other.

Feel Me Break wasn’t another sweet romance. Although I would consider it a bit

Tara R asked me to read and write a review on her novella Feel me Break. After reading the first few pages on the look inside feature I decided this was a book I needed to read.

Cate Biblio
Immediately, from the first chapter this book is hard-hitting. I knew it was going to be emotional. It opens with Chloe and her parents wondering where her older brother is. Then, they get a call from a detective saying that they found a body that might be her brother. That, I wasn't expected.

Because of this, Chloe's life falls apart. We don't actually get to see that happen but see the after-effects a year later and then three years later. I'm not going to lie, Chloe is a complete m

Oh, wow! I loved every page of this novella. Every single page has emotions that will touch your heart. Even though most of the book presents the problems that each character has to face, they both represent hope for one another. So I wouldn’t say it’s just a “cry me a river” book.

So without disclosing too much, both Nick and Chloe have family issues – some they have created, some they just have to bear. When Chloe’s life seems to have no purpose to anyone, she meets Nick who will become

It makes you feel like there is always a reason for certain things to happen and for certain paths to cross. Chloe is facing a family loss, things spiral out of control and on one fateful night Nick finds her and brings her back to reality.

I was asked to read and review this by the author and once I had read the short blurb I was more than happy to do so.

This is a short novella but certainly packs a punch. I don’t want to give any spoilers due to the length, so I recommend you read for yourself and find out why I identified with it and fell under the spell.

Basically it’s about Chloe and Nick .. two young people who should have the world at their feet as they embark into the world. But tragedy is prominent i

Since this is a novella, I'm going to keep this review short and sweet.

Feel Me Break follows the story of Chloe and Nick, and is told from dual points of view. From the moment you pick up this novella, it starts off with a bang and is filled with heartache. Now, since this is a novella, and it is super short, I can't really say much more about the story. Here's what I can tell you: I think this series has a lot of potential.

This book has some really good reviews, but I didn't really get along with it, so I'll make my review quick. My main problem was the style of writing, it felt wooded and at times clumsy, instead of flowing like it should. It was also very cliched; in itself that's not necessarily a bad thing if done well, but I didn't really feel connected to the characters at all. Perhaps the latter is because the story is so short, which is another thing I don't understand; basically this novella is the first ...more

I enjoyed this suspenseful short story. It is easy to read and has a good flow to it. The author introduces us from the start with angst and leads us to quickly understand the complexity of the characters and how the main characters have to learn to deal with problems of their past. Nick saves Chloe at the beginning of the book from making a fatal mistake. She has never forgotten his kindness. She uses this kindness to survive against all odds. In turn, Chloe wants to return the favour. It is at ...more
