Book Review: Breakable (Contours of the Heart #2) by Tammara Webber

He was lost and alone. Then he found her.
And the future seemed more fragile than ever.

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.

I'll be honest, I bought and read Breakable solely because it's by Tammara Webber.  Anything Webber writes is an auto-buy for me: I've loved all of her books!  In Breakable, she follows the latest trend of NA and YA authors who write a sequel to their first-in-a-series novel from another character's point of view.  In my opinion, these books usually end up bland and with a recycled feel. 
But Breakable was much more than just a retelling of Easy from Lucas' perspective.  Although, I have to say if that's all it was, I'd still be happy because...Lucas.  Enough said!  What I loved about Breakable was how much better I got to know Lucas.  The story alternates between Landon as a 13-year-old, and Lucas as he was in the beginning of Easy.  The flashbacks kept the story feeling fresh and kept the pace moving right along.  I was surprised that I enjoyed Landon's story just as much as Lucas'. 

A notable fact is that Breakable was much heavier on the bedroom scenes than Easy was.  I felt like it toed the line between adult and new adult.  This wasn't necessarily a bad thing, but just worth noting, especially for younger readers. 

Webber doesn't write duds, and while Breakable wasn't quite on the same level as Easy was for me, it was still an awesome book and a must-read for fans of Easy.
