Book title: Feel Me Break
Author: Tara R
Published: May 10th 2016
Chloe Reed and Nick Grayson couldn’t have more different lives. Where Chloe had a bleak future and was trying to deal with a loss that had left a hole in her heart, Nick was a happy-go-lucky guy, leading a carefree life with a path set.
Until one fateful night, they met and everything changed. The night that gave Chloe hope for the future, left Nick scarred for life. Was their meeting a one-off tryst or was their story just beginning?
Oh, wow! I loved every page of this novella. Every single page has emotions that will touch your heart. Even though most of the book presents the problems that each character has to face, they both represent hope for one another. So I wouldn’t say it’s just a “cry me a river” book.
So without disclosing too much, both Nick and Chloe have family issues – some they have created, some they just have to bear. When Chloe’s life seems to have no purpose to anyone, she meets Nick who will become her life line, her hope to a better future. On the other and, Nick will still be thinking about Chloe and what has happened to her even after they part ways.
After Nick’s life altering event, he decides to keep his distance from his family and the home town where his future has been forever marked. When he least expected, but needed the most, he meets Chloe again. Now the roles are changed and he sees her as a sign that all can be all right.
The ending is quite a great opening for the novel that will cover more of their lives. Even if the short length is more like a teaser, this has in no way bothered me. On the contrary, it gives me a better picture, a better way of understanding the main characters and their lives for the bigger story to come. There are great series out there that start in full action let’s say, but after Book 1 we have Book 0 where the action happens before Book 1… I appreciate the author’s effort to keep the chronological flow of events.
To close up, this is one of my favorite novellas I’ve read for this year and it represents a good start for the bigger story. I can’t wait to read more about Chloe, Nick and their lives.
