At the Other End:
I took a deep breath and exhaled it slowly before turning around. It was Lucas who stood there. His gaze was penetrating, not wavering for a moment, and my pulse hammered under his silent scrutiny. I couldn't remember the last time I'd been so full of pure, unqualified desire.

Lucas is the stranger who saved Jacqueline from an attack by a fellow student - she'd never noticed him before then, and now he's everywhere. 


But can Jacqueline trust him - or will the secrets he's hiding come between them?

An unexpected and emotional rollercoaster. Full of twists and turns, ups and downs you won’t regret picking up this one.



 
I can’t believe what just happened. I did not expect this. It was so emotional and with a hard hitting and dark storyline, it was hard not to fall in love with this book and with Jacqueline and Lucas.

It feels really hard for me to review this book, there are so many things that I want to talk about, that I can’t and also I can’t seem to get my thoughts straight after pondering for a few days exactly what I want to say. 

Let me get out of the way what I didn’t like about this book. I do see how much the characters grow in this book, but they really do stupid things sometimes. Honestly, that’s the only problem I had in this book. Jacqueline did some pretty dumb things and it just made me shake my head in shame for what she was doing or didn’t do. Also, one other small thing, I wish that we saw more of Jacqueline and her tie to music and her double bass. We hear about it alot, but where is her playing? Where is her love for it showing through the pages, no matter how much time she actually has to play, I wish there was more of her playing her instrument rather than her telling us that she played it at this time and that she loves it. I want to SEE how much she loves it. 

I love the two main characters, Jacqueline and Lucas. I ship these guys so hard it’s not funny! They are perfect for each other, especially with everything that has happened to them, they are definitely meant to be together. Umm, I’m not sure if this book is a love triangle or not. I guess in a very very small way it is at certain times, but then in others it’s not. I don’t really know exactly. It just felt like it was at times, but not in an annoying way, you could just tell what was going to happen. 

Some of the book was predictable, but not in a bad way, I guess I just wasn’t as surprised when the truth came out. I think because most of the time I agreed with Jacqueline’s reasons behind it all, so it made it bearable and make us wait with her for Lucas to finally open up. It made me connect more easily with Jacqueline, and I could tell more from her of how easily she changed for the better and grew as the book went along. 

I don’t really like Erin. I guess it’s because of how much she pushed Jacqueline into situations that she didn’t want to be put in, and felt bad for backing out on them. I mean, not everything that Erin pushed Jacqueline into was bad, some of it made me even like her a bit more. 

This book was seriously shocking and heartbreaking when you least expect it. It rips your heart out of your chest and repeatedly jumps all over it, turning it to mush. The truth when it comes out about Lucas is unbearable, and I’m surprised I didn’t cry (probably because of where I was at the time). It was all completely unexpected for me, I honestly thought that it would be some plain old contemporary novel with little bits of drama folded through. Easy completely surprised me for the better, and I highly recommend this book to everyone.

At the Other End:
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.

    1. Same here! I'm really surprised at how much I really did love it, and Breakable was just as good. I can't wait to read the new book in this series (mind blank on the title). Yes, this one would have been a brilliant first NA book!
