Book Review For if I Break (Book 1)

When I met Cal Scott, I knew he was a distraction.

A 6 foot 2, with ebony hair, deep gorgeous eyes, I knew he would be trouble. For the first time in my life, a little trouble was just what I needed.

No, what I wanted.

It wasn’t like I was going to marry the guy.

Until I did.

What I thought would be my happily ever after, was only the beginning. Cal has a secret. One that makes loving come with a massive price, and being his wife costs more than I bargained for.


I gave this 4 stars

Overall Thoughts

The ending was shocking, I was not expecting that outcome at all. It wasn’t the story I was expecting when I first started reading it.

    I’m really starting to get into these kinds of books, love and romance and some of them are quite interesting. Thanks for you review of If I Break. Sounds like it definitely keeps you interested clear to the end and I really like how you provided a brief synopsis of what it’s about. Seems like it kind of mirrors real life in a way, as people sometimes fall in love and marry a person whom they think they’ll live happily ever with and come to find out, they’ve got secrets or are a completely different person later on. Sounds like there will be more books in this series which is exciting. Is this a book you don’t mind reading over again?

    Well now I want to read it just to see what the twist ending could be! And its in a series so I assume the story of this same couple continues? I wonder if it will end happily for them or not? Are the other books in the series already available? Have you read them yet?

    Sounds like you really were drawn into this book.  The story seemed to make a connection with you.  You mentioned a twist shocking ending.  Is this a thriller story…or more romantic novel?

    I also saw you rated this 4 stars…is that 4 out of 5?  Or 4 out of 10?  Is this an on going series?

    You mentioned that this ended up not being the story you thought it was going to be…is that good?  In other words, were you pleasantly surprised…or disappointed.

    Thanks for reviewing and sharing!

      I was pleasantly surprised as I thought it would just be another usual romance with no plot twists, but theres plenty of exciting plot twists in this book. Its a romance for sure but an exciting one.

    Hi Jayde!

    Thanks for introducing me to this new read.  I’m assuming that you rated the book a 4 out of 5, but I can’t decide why you gave it a less than 5 rating since you really enjoyed it.  Is this the first book in the series?

    Also wondering if the book is a quick read and the age appropriateness of the book.  You say young adult, but I’m 65 so forgive me if I really don’t know the answer to that anymore! (:

    Thanks for the author’s exerpt at the beginning – it really has a great hook – and I might just find I enjoy reading it as well.

    Thanks for introducing us to the If I Break-I Break series!

      I gave it 4 as its not quite a 5, its got room for more excitement which I think I will get in the next books in the series. I would say young adult 16-30 maybe, but I can’t tell you who may enjoy this at any age!

    I love how you have left the suspense with your review this “if I break” series. It really does sound exciting and sad. Leaving me wondering to what the underlying story is here. With a title like that I would just about be sure it would relate to perhaps the big misunderstanding people are facing in love relationship problems worldwide.

    That.s just my assumption from what you have given thus far, but I certainly do have the desire to look into if I break it now:) I love a good reviewer who doesn’t give it away, so thank you.
