Breaking Everly is outside my usual reading zone. I’ve been doing a few of these lately. I was drawn to this book because I really liked K.L. Jessop’s last book. Emotional reads are an area I don’t venture into often, however I enjoyed this one.

Two people madly in love torn apart by an ugly complication. Adam and Everly were young when they first felt their connection. Both knew they had something special. Yet sometimes love isn’t enough.

Ten years later the pair are reuni

This could have been a semi nice 2nd chance, but yet again, Hero gets to move on & f**k other women while heroine is frozen. I only got to 35% before I DNF'd because honestly I am tired of 2nd chance stories that always have Hero moving on to OW.

Granted, I understand he was hurt & angry that heroine left him without explanation, but couldn't we have some 2nd chance romances in which the MCs stay celibate & true to each other? Is that so hard to ask?

Breaking Everly is grittily intense, heart-wrenching, high angst, emotional, while also being wholly beautiful, poignant, and moving. Everly and Adam’s story is a raw, complex, and break your heart kind of book. The rawness and realness of Everly and her journey is one that will you keep you turning the pages.

K.L. Jessop brings her A game when it comes to understanding the ins and outs of Everly descent into a lonely and dark place - one that seems almost impossible to pull herself o

Breaking Everly is a tale of great love and an even greater loss. It will tug at your heart and you start to feel what Everly and Adam are going through. Their happy moments and their low moments. Your heart will break right along with them but you find yourself cheering for them to come through the other side stronger than they were before.

Wow, what a breathtaking and emotional story that literally breaks you and then slowly puts you back together again. Breaking Everly takes hold from the first chapter and doesn't let go until the end. It's one of the most moving stories I've read in a while and you'll need a box of tissues at your side ready. There were times I found myself sat there rubbing my chest as my heart literally ached for this couple.

This is a story that will stay with you long after you have closed the book. This is an intense and emotional love story that is not sunshine and roses. This is a story that will gut your core and then radiate heat inside you slowly to heal you back again.

I just don't know where to start and end with this review there is so much I want to say but wont and the rest the words wont do it justice. 10 years ago they were the couple that everyone knew without a doubt would stand the test of time. 10 years ago that all changed in the blink of an eye. Jealousy, vengeance and pure freaking evil showed it's ugly face and tore them to shreds. I haven't read this authors individual work but had read a collaboration or two, I wasn't ready.

Adam & Everly were fated to be together, and they NEVER thought anything could break them apart. However, life is a funny thing & when it hits, sometimes it's more than anyone can bear, and life was definitely mean to these two, as an very ugly situation broke them up. They're apart for 10 years before fate steps back in to reunite them. Their past baggage made it hard for them to move forward, but again, fate was on their side thankfully. This story tried to break me with all the angst, ...more

So this book excited me because the story takes place in pretty much my little corner of the world. I’m from the Lake District, which is where this book is set and often visit Keswick and the surrounding areas.
So this is a second chance love story and it’s so heartbreaking. Adam and Everly are childhood sweethearts, in fact I’d go as far as to say they were soulmates. But something so horrible and terrible happens and it breaks them apart. Leaving them both heartbroken but

Talk about an emotional read! This is not light-hearted, it is tough and makes you acknowledge horrible truths. That being said, it might have been angst, but there is also light at the end of the tunnel because Everly and Adam love each other so much. The question is just if they can get over everything that happened and live their HEA.

Everly is one of the strongest heroines I have read in a while, and this book shows that you have to be able to love yourself before you can love som

I have been lucky enough to read this book a number of times now and every time I am overwhelmed by the emotion packed into the story.

Breaking Everly is KL Jessop’s best book to date. The storyline, the characters, the feels, the raw emotion makes this a rollercoaster of a story.

Adam and Everly are superb characters. This is a second chance romance. Adam and Everly were everything to one another; engaged and planning a long future together.

“Breaking Everly was a mix of love and lost. It was a breathtaking and extremely emotional story. My heart was broken and then recovered slowly. Chapter after chapter I was more engaged, not wanting to stop until the end.

Adam and Everly love was fated and fierce. Their love was powerful, intense, strong and against everything until life tear them apart. Their forever simply vanished. Until circumstances bring them back together after 10 years but their past are still haunting them.

Everly and Adam had an everlasting love, until they are torn apart by circumstances. Now 10 years later fate brings them back together, but will they be able to have a 2nd chance? No spoilers; this is a story which is an emotional roller coaster journey throughout. This is a beautifully written, poignant story, which is filled with angst, and is a complex, raw, gritty, intense, heartbreaking, and all consuming and powerful read. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner, but ...more

ERMERGERD! All the feels!

This book was edge of your seat, nail biting angst with a high dose of WHAT THE ACTUAL EFF (yes, I sent a message containing those words to the author!)

It starts out so sweet, it makes you jealous of the amazing relationship between Adam and Everly.
Soon, it becomes a tangled mess of emotions- anger, heartbreak, hope and relief only to throw you back to WTAF?!

A definite roller coaster of feelings.

Wow just wow!!
This book is full of heartbreak, anguish, pain but always love. HEA??....that would be telling!
It has some tough topics but the way it has been beautifully written pulls you in and keeps you turning the pages. It certainly kept me gripped throughout.
It shows you that you never know what someone you love has gone through so never give up on them x

Fantastic characters and story writing. I loved Everly and Adam so much. Be ready with the tissues because even though this is a romance you will need them. You feel for these two and their story pulls you in. I never want to give anything away in my reviews so just know you will love these two and they will work hard for their happy ever after!

I thought Breaking Everly was a good story it would be the first one that I've read by K.L Jessop and I'm excited to read more by her . My heart really broke for the couple they truly loved one another and when the reasoning for the separation came to light lets just my emotions were all over the place .I can't wait to read more by the author in the future .

A brilliant book by K. L. Jessop. I was unsure of reading it at the moment but decided to. What an amazing read. The connection of Everly and Adam is just the best. She knew she could trust him it just took time. Another great read but sad in places. Love ya K xx

This was such an emotional read but amazing at the same time. It was a fantastic storyline that made you feel like you were living alongside the characters. It had happy and sad aspects to the story but I thought it was delivered perfectly.

Breaking Everly is such an incredible and emotional read. The emotions are gritty and real, you feel everything along with them.

Adam and Everly were made for each other and you could see it when they were young. They were incredibly sweet and my heart broke for them when they were torn apart.

My heart hurt so bad at everything Everly went through and the pain it caused both her and Adam. I loved Adam’s reactions, his anger and love were so prominent. He nearly broke me. They both have healing t

The emotion. The heartbreak. The loss. This book absolutely wrecked me, piece by piece, but then slowly put it all back together. It is a book of second chances, turmoil, and an overall love story that all romance lovers will truly fall in love with. The authors words leap off the page at you as you read. I swear, I am part of this world.

It is a book that stays with you long after the last word. It will make you obsess and stay up site to finish. This author is a genius at writing. It has so ma

KLJ lives in South West England just on the edge of Dartmoor where the moorland goes on for days. It's beautiful, breath-taking and occasionally rather wet. She probably swears way more than she should, her mum makes the best cupcakes in history, and she goes weak at the knees for a man with a five o'clock shadow.
