Honest review given,
This review is from: Breaking Elle (Break Me Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Breaking Elle is book one of the Break Me series by Antoinette Candela. I LOVED this book, it was excellently written and kept me sucked in from the beginning up until the very last word... I’m dying to read book two.
Elle is a beautiful young woman who has three men falling all over her and each other to have her for themselves, this makes for a brilliantly complicated love story and a great read. Cane and Elle have been together for two years, they work together and are spending as much time together over the summer before they both go off to separate collages. Tyler is Elle’s best friend and has been in love with her forever but never pursued his feelings because he knew she didn’t feel the same way and he didn’t want to lose her friendship. He’s the only constant in her life and has never let her down, therefore he keeps their relationship platonic so he doesn’t jeopardize that. Then the new guy in town Reed comes along and a stumble in a nightclub and an accidental touch ignites sparks she didn't want, since she's super happy with Cane. Elle has huge emotional issues and problems trusting people and Reed, well Reed has secrets, things he left in Texas and intended never to go back. From the offset you can tell that this is going to be an intense roller coaster of a story because things Elle never thought would happen do. Elle doesn’t like the new feelings so she has a huge internal battle going on throughout the novel. Mostly this is a sweet story of a young woman who is finding herself and for the first time going with her heart and instincts rather than what her head says she should do. Its funny and had me grinning like an idiot on more than one occasion. I’m officially a huge fan of Antionette Candela’s writing, it helps that managed sneak a few Lifehouse quotes into the novel which in the right places made the scenes they were used for more vivid and emotional. I cannot wait for book two of this series as this one ended with so much suspense its killing me! I have to know what happens next.. I cannot wait for Wanting Reed. 5 Stars!
