BREAK by New York Times Bestselling Author Cassia Leo is out now and #FREE in Kindle Unlimted! Read it now!
A humorous and heartbreaking second-chance stand-alone romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the Shattered Hearts Series.
For six years, she was the only one. My best friend. My kitten. My world. Then, I broke us by getting caught in a web of lies.
Hard to believe, after everything we’d been through, I could do what I did to her… in front of 600,000 people. I doubt she’ll ever believe I did it because I love her.
Three years later, my music career is booming. I have a movie deal in the next comic book reboot. And now the only parent I have left has been given a death sentence. I have to go home, but going home means facing what I did to her.
Stephanie’s 4 Blush Review
“I love us.”
Break is Cassia Leo’s new Second Chance Stand-Alone romance. It is the story of first loves, choices and consequences. I absolutely loved Ben & Charley! They have a chemistry, a connection, a spirit about them. The story is told in duel POV’s with flash backs. I really felt the connection between Ben and Charley as well as the angst that came alone with their story.
Charlotte “Charley” Winters and Ben Hayes have known each other since Charley was eleven. First as friends, which eventually blossomed into young love, and then more. For six years they shared everything. For Charley, Ben was her first everything…. They are quirky and funny together. They have great banter and chemistry as well.
“When Ben is home, we do everything together. Everyplace we go together becomes our place. Every year we stay together is our year. And summer is our season.”
I really loved Charley. Her character is so natural, so organic, so real. Charley’s emotions are right there for us. Her insecurities, her compassion, her generosity. Often times Charley’s insecurities cause her to question herself. No one knows Ben better than Charley. I really felt the depth of their relationship.
“Sometimes I think you’re the only thing I like about myself.”
Ben is an actor and singer. He “dumps” Charley via a social media post. It is so unexpected and leaves Charley to her worst insecurities and feelings of self-loathing. Three years pass. Charley tries desperately to move on when the bomb is dropped – Ben is coming home. Home to care for his dying dad, but he must also face Charley. Ben has a secret. One that I couldn’t imagine that would cause him to break Charley’s heart. I was emotional when his secret was revealed.
“Ben is like the ocean. He’s beautiful, powerful, capable of lulling you to sleep with his song.
He’s also unpredictable, full of secrets and easy to drown in.”
I enjoyed the flash backs of Ben and Charley in their youth, when they were care free. Ben and Charley have an emotional journey with tender moments, choices and consequences. Ben is not afraid to express his feelings to Charley. You never know what you will get with Ben. His behavior is erratic at times. Charley is just such an amazing character. Her fears and insecurities broke my heart. There are other amazing parts to this story. Amazing family and friends.
In my opinion, a few of the situations were resolved too quickly. The end of the story was a bit abrupt. However, even with those things, I still loved and enjoyed Ben and Charley’s story! There are so many other parts of Break that completed it, but I don’t want to spoil anything for readers. The only thing missing was an epilogue. I love to see a bit of the future with my stories, especially with the end of Ben and Charley’s…..
Cassia Leo has been writing some amazing stories! I highly recommend her! I look forward to her next adventure!
