People claim each of us has a soul mate who we’re meant to be with. I don’t think that’s true at all. There are multiple people in the world each of us could fall in love with. How well you change together is truly what determines how long you’ll be together.
Oh. My. God. OH MY GOD!!! I honestly don’t know what to say about this book except HOLY. SHIT. If you love twists and turns in your books, you NEED to pick up Break Even. This is my first read by Lisa De Jong and she didn’t disappoint. I read this in one sitting because I HAD to know what was going on – my mind kept racing as I read more and more. This book made me want to scream, it messed with my mind so much. I loved how twisty and thrilling it was!
The one who made me believe in love shouldn’t also be the one who makes me doubt it.
I really don’t want to say anything about the plot, because this is the kind of book that’s best to go in blind. I will say that yes, there is a love triangle, and yes, there is infidelity… but everything happens with GOOD REASON. And honestly, when the truth is revealed, you’ll be feeling so hurt for the heroine because her supposedly perfect life is spiraling and she has no idea how to fix it that you won’t care about the love triangle or infidelity.
He’s a magnet.
I’m a nickel.
He wants me.
I need to feel wanted.
Days of loneliness, and he’s filled each one.
I usually avoid books that have cheating in them, but Break Even had me so curious from the blurb. And now I’m really glad I read it, even though the story took me out of my comfort zone. While I didn’t connect with the Marley, Cole, or River, I was seriously sucked into their story. I loved them and I hated them – they made me feel so much. This is definitely a book that I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. If you love books with twists and turns that you don’t see coming, you need to pick up Break Even!
