Welcome to my review of Break You by Jennifer Snyder.
I was given this book to read by Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest and fair review. I was not compensated in any way.
Blaire Hayes enjoys a quiet life, spending her days as a CNA at the local nursing home and nights studying for exams. She prefers things to be as uncomplicated as possible — but when her friends drag her to a party and she bumps into her high school crush, the path of Blaire’s life veers in an entirely different direction than what she had planned for herself.
Jason Bryant created a nice life away from his hometown, putting distance between himself and the suffocating sadness of his father’s death. But when he finds out his grandfather’s health is deteriorating, he decides he must return home. Partying was not on his agenda while in town, but it’s how he bumps into Blaire Hayes—the girl he’d always thought of in high school as an unobtainable pass.
Together the two learn there are moments in life that hold within them all the power to break you…
(New Adult: Contains sexual situations, language, mature themes, and alcohol usage.)

Blaire has had a crush on Jason for as long as she can remember. What she can also remember is that he shunned her in the words possible way. Jason has had his own secret crush on Blaire. And when he runs into her year after their high school years he sees it as the opportunity to meet up with her like he always wanted.
One thing leads to another and another and they just can’t seem to get where they need to be.
So when I first started reading the book I thought a lot of things were mentioned that could have been left out. Further more I found somethings a bit of a waste. Should you read this – don’t let this stop you from carrying on. Because – nothing is what it seems.
I loved it. I loved that everything didn’t have a happy ending. I loved that the characters were flawed and in no way perfect. I loved that they didn’t have their shit together and that they had to fight to get what they want. I liked pretty much the entire book.
Really give it a try. It is very worth it.
