Descrição

A Contours of the Heart Novel

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise-until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

Tammara Webber, the New York Time bestselling author of Easy, now delivers a daring and entirely new perspective on love, and why falling for it is beyond our control.

A college age, New Adult romance.

    AN OPEN LETTER TO: Landon Lucas Maxfield

    Dear Lucas (Book Boyfriend),

    Do you still go by Lucas or are you back to Landon? You know what, it doesn’t matter. What matters most is your happiness and a tragic free future. Sorry to bring up your ever so tragic past, but when I read Easy I can remember imagining what it was that you went through and how awful it must of been growing up with such turmoil in your soul; blaming yourself for your mother’s tragic death. And now after reading Breakable, I can say I had no idea at all how difficult it really was. I wished that your father wasn’t so lost in his grief that he would have noticed how much you needed him, needed each other, to deal with your pain. School was an awful time for you, and it was sad that no one, especially that old hag of a principal couldn’t see, that intervention instead of ridicule was needed.

    As bad as Boyce was to your future, I think having him in your life was sort of a blessing and a curse. He definitely was an interesting fella, he made me laugh a few times, he has the strangest views on life and other stuff. Surprisingly he was actually a supportive friend, and gladly his friendship turned out to be more blessing than curse. Your grandpa also helped you coped some too, even if he didn’t talk much, at least more than your dad did anyway. So so happy that you had the Heller’s, Charles and Cindy, and their wonderful children. They did the most for you, eventually getting you back on the straight and narrow, narrowly escaping the future you could have had.

    Another thing that I wasn’t completely privy to from Easy, was your totally swoon worthy attraction to Jacqueline, it almost bordered on obsession. Although I didn’t see it that way, I could see that you had just finally fallen in love. Even though you seemed to have recovered from you painful past, it was obvious that you were just functioning and could possibly just fall apart one day. I believe that Jacqueline came into your life at the right time. Your first chance to interact with her did not happen under the best of circumstances. But you’ve become kind of a protector to women since what happened to your mom and at that moment Jacqueline needed a hero and you were hers on that day. Sometimes we need good influences in our lives and Jacqueline became that for you. You two had some struggle getting there but eventually you became what each other needed at these critical moments in your life.

    Okay, this is getting too long and probably too sappy for you Lucas so I’m going to end by saying that what I got from your story was how close it came to being even more tragic for you. Oh Lucas, all those risky things you did? You are so lucky that things didn’t get worse than it did. You were also very lucky to have the Heller’s and Jacqueline to make you see that you are worth it. It’s certainly okay to have someone, even a romantic love interest, be the catalyst to change and recovery. Especially when that person can make you see that you were not at fault for what happened and that you might need professional help. Sadly the love of a partner can only do so much. I want to wish you and Jacqueline a very Happy Ever After.

    With Love,

    Your Real Life (Girl)Friend?

    P.S. No offense to Jacqueline about the book boyfriend thing, okay? And I hope I didn’t sound too obsessive there. Bye.

    My Final Thoughts
    Why the 4 rating? Well, from my feelings reading this book I sometimes felt like I was getting too much info, too much back story. I don’t know if it was just to make the book longer, but that’s the way it felt like for me. However, I really loved everything else about this book, great characters and certainly a thoughtful look at what a person might go through when tragedy happens. Also I might have been comparing Breakable too much to Easy, where I can see even more now that it was just the right amount of story. A story with a difficult topic that was handled so well, and making it the compelling story I thought it was when I first read it. And Breakable is certainly compelling in it’s own way too.

    I loved the book and the narrator wasn’t dull or monotone. Takes a little getting used to if you’re not used to audiobooks but I loved it!

    This book and easy are my two favorite books. I like how Lucas is the consent king and strives to show Her just how powerful of a woman she is. The narrators great also.

    I wanted to read Breakable because I loved Easy, the romance, chemistry and emotion. It has been awhile since I read the first, which is good because its the same story, we just get Landon's perspective. I fell just as hard for him this time as I did in the first reading. He is so hard working, loyal and working through his pain and past. I couldn't remember details from what exactly happened to him or Jackie's past for that matter so it felt like a fresh read. It was nice to get more of an understanding behind why the Lucas vs Landon wasn't handled better. He is insecure at times and more of a sensitive soul that I would have imagined, but we get to see what has formed him into the person he is now. We get to see Landon as a teen in high school fresh as he is dealing with the monsters of his past. We see his unlikely best friend situation as well as his emotional issues being so fresh and impacting every aspect of his life. Things were pretty rough, and his life especially academically was going downhill, and we see the professor and long time family friend step in and give him some challenges and offer to help if he can pick himself up. The ending was nice and I enjoyed reading this new perspective on Lucas and Jacquline's romance as well as what made Landon into who he became.Bottom Line: Good addition to Easy.

    So I am not sure why exactly new adult series love to retell the first story from the guy's point of view in the second book, because it usually makes the male main character look kind of stalkery. "Breakable" is no exception; Landon/Lucas comes off as more than a little creepy, at least in my eyes. But maybe it's because I don't think that staring at a girl during class and sketching her is all that romantic, to be honest. There's not much new here; the author does go into Landon/Lucas's past, but all of the necessary information was already glossed over in the first book in the series. My final verdict: meh.

    We all have been subjected to bullying in one form or another . . . or been the bully ourselves.

    In Breakable by Aimee L. Salter, young Stacy is bullied by a nasty elitist crew from school. The hardest part of being bullied by them is she once considered them her friends.

    Add to Stacy’s angst her not-so-secret love for Mark who begins dating the nastiest of the crew, but he is blinded to Karyn’s true nature by her “perceived” beauty.

    To recount more would definitely be a spoiler . . . but one more little twister, Stacy communicates with “Older Me”, her future self, by looking in a mirror. And “Older Me” isn’t nearly the person she appears to be.

    Breakable is a fast-paced book filled with raw emotions and a host of interesting characters.

    For a debut novel, Ms. Salter has tapped into an issue at the forefront of too many tragedies on the front page of our newspapers today. She is a clever wordsmith and very perceptive into the world of YA readers.

    Breakable kept me engage and I only put it down because I reached the end. I highly recommend Breakable to all readers and I look forward to reading and reviewing more of Ms. Salter’s books in the future!
