“Love is giving someone the power to destroy you, but trusting them not to.”

How do you live with yourself when you are the reason you lost the one thing that meant the most to you.

Timing is everything and for Reed, he can never seem to catch a break. When Reed returns to Boston to redeem himself he finds that Elle has already moved on, building a new life, a new beginning. He needs her to know that he meant every word before he left, that he never meant to leave her. Will he ever get that chance to tell her?

How do you love again when the one person who made you feel like you were his whole world left you with a broken heart? Hoping that life and new friends could keep her memories and feelings for Reed at bay, Elle chases life and all that it has to offer until she is confronted with heartbreak again.

Is time and space enough to get past losing your once in a lifetime or will Elle be always Wanting Reed?

My Review:

Wanting Reed (Break Me, #2)Wanting Reed by Antoinette Candela
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Wanting Reed picks up where Breaking Elleleaves off. What Elle knows is that Reed left for Texas and didn't come back. She doesn't know why and can only believe that he left her and his new life in Boston. She does her best to move on with her life and even starts to explore a relationship that could be more than it is. Even as she tries to move forward, she can't get rid of the strong feelings she still has for Reed.

Reed has been through a lot of terrible situations, and he is desperately trying to fix the errors of his past and put his life on track so that he can be a person that Elle deserves. He knows now that not telling her about his past and why he didn't come back when he was supposed to may have been a huge mistake. He returns to Boston to try and get her back, but sees that it may be too late.

There was definitely some high drama going on in this book. Especially during the first half of the book. I don't want to spoil anything, but there were definitely some moments where I wanted to yell because characters were doing things I knew they shouldn't. The fast pace and exciting events kept the story going. Towards the second half of the book, I was still engaged in the story, but found that some of the dialogue was getting pretty repetitive. All in all, I'm glad the way things turned out and was glad that I read this to see how things worked out for these characters. 3.5 stars.

***** NOT LIVE ******

Title ~ Breaking Elle
Author ~  
Genre ~ New Adult.
Break Me Series book 1

How is it that the one person who you have avoided is the same person who could give you true happiness?

When Elle Bennett meets Reed Austin she can't deny the attraction. She discovers that certain people come into your life who make you question everything that you've ever believed about love and life. Will she risk everything for something exciting and dangerous or will she choose what is familiar and secure? 

Reed Austin isn't looking for love when he moves to Boston. The distance was supposed to help him escape the trouble he left behind. Once he meets, Elle, everything changes. Reed can't figure out why he's drawn to Elle, but one thing is certain - he needs her.

Passion. Betrayal. Solace. Confusion. Desperation. 
Love and life are not simple and emotions and relationships are tested. 

Will attraction be enough or will their secrets and past keep them apart?

My Review of Breaking Elle

Antoinette Candela is a little shy with a larger than life personality. Suffering from Peter Pan syndrome, she refuses to grow up. She finds inspiration for her writings from everyday life, through her fun and quirky interactions with friends and family and the drama that never ceases to disappoint.

One thing is for certain, Antoinette lives by her own rules. As a Bostonian she loves the Yankees and is proud to wear her “I Love Derek Jeter “T-shirt. You can catch Antoinette on the beach soaking in the rays, but when the rumble of the thunderstorm rolls in, she’s curled up with a book or tapping away on her keyboard.

Mother, Writer, Reader, Lover of Music and all things learning, Antoinette is the charismatic author of Breaking Elle.
