Throughout the book, we jump back and forth between the past and present, ping-ponging between lust at first sight to painful obsession. Of course, neither is healthy. "The Prince Charming myth is the other curse God created to punish Eve and every other woman for biting that stupid apple." (11)
The words are full of sadness, regret, and anger, which make for a captivating read.
Lauren is witty and frank; Cal is such a condescending, arrogant ass. The two have an exhausting love/hate relationship that only seems to be affecting Lauren. They're either fighting or having wild sex. The whole thing mainly centers on her obsession with Cal and how she started and ended up with him. It gets a little tiring after a while. So, basically, he pampered her with flashy cars and fancy art? Big Whoop!
I was somewhat curious to the meaning of the title. If I Break could possibly signify the end of her marriage. Will she die without Cal? Frankly, you don't know if you want her to.
Although this is a long-winded novel (I mean, all you hear is Lauren pining and whining about Cal,) a tiny mystery reels the reader back in. As you get closer to the end, you can't decide if to root for the marriage or hope they end in divorce.
The flip flopping through the time line can be a little confusing at times but the story line and writing more than make up for it. Now to the nitpickers out there this book has some editing issues. There are a lot of grammatical mistakes, misplaced words, extra words, and punctuation in the wrong places. But it certainly did not take anything away from the story for me at all. I was able to follow along perfectly. If you choose to read this series, keep a box of tissues handy because you WILL need them.
This is a great example of what so many young women actually experience in real life. I found myself relating to Lauren just because I, too, wondered if I ever really knew the person I was madly in love with. What do we do when we realize how much of ourselves we have sacrificed and given to our significant other? What do we do when we realize that we no longer know, or perhaps never knew, the man we are madly in love with? Is it all in our heads?
Moore pieces the story together using flashbacks mixed with real time events to answer all of those questions for Lauren, and for myself as well. However, there's a shocking twist and the main question becomes: What's Cal's secret??????
With some minor changes to the editing, this will be a really strong book!
Yeah, this book is free so I guess I can't call it a waste of money but save your time and pick another book to read!
