I Won’t Break (A Broken Love Story #2)
by E. Mellyberry
A New Adult Contemporary Romance
Released February 2nd 2016
Lea and Andrew’s story continues in this sequel to My Lea. From the city of San Francisco, the tale journeys on to the other part of the world: Jakarta, Bali, and Tokyo.
It’s been five years since Andrew walked out of his apartment and left Lea in America. Five long years without any single contact.
Andrew is now a twenty-eight-year-old man who just inherited his father’s business empire and is about to marry the granddaughter of the wealthiest man in Singapore.
At twenty-four, Lea is in the early process of sorting out her life and career back in her home country.
When Andrew’s father passed away, they are reunited again for the first time since America.
Like it or not, they are forced to revisit their past and deal with their unfinished business. For most people, love is the answer to everything. But Lea and Andrew’s love is far from ordinary. Theirs is tainted by sin and guilt. And anger. Lots of anger.
What happened five years ago that made Andrew leave?
What happened after Twin Peaks?
What happened to their baby?
Told in both past and present events, I Won’t Break tests the limit oflove when faced with grief and heartbreak, discovers the true power offorgiveness, and explores the meaning of second chances.
I Won’t Break is the sequel to My Lea (A Broken Love Story series) and cannot be read as a standalone.
Gah!!! These two! It’s not often that I find myself torn between wanting a couple to work things out or to give up altogether, but Lea and Andrew sure had me struggling. Thankfully, the author did a fantastic job of reminding me why I loved this couple so much in the first place.
Like the blurb states, this story cannot be read as a stand alone. The reader needs to understand and be a witness to all that transpired in the first book in order to fully understand the magnitude of Lea and Andrew’s connection and the struggles they faced.
Once again, E. Mellyberry allowed the reader an unobstructed view of Lea and Andrew’s journey at a second chance at love. I appreciated the fact that she didn’t pull any punches when it came to revisiting the events that brought Lea and Andrew’s relationship to a halt. These characters were flawed and I was grateful of the reminder.
Through their years apart, both Lea and Andrew struggled with their demons and managed to make some strides in healing their wounds. But it wasn’t until they met again that they came to realize the extent of unfinished business that existed between them.
Regret. Love. Heartache. Shame. Loss.
Five years later, Lea and Andrew still share an undoubted connection that made itself known the more time they spent together as “friends”. As the story progressed and as more details were revealed, I couldn’t help but become invested once again in their relationship. I vacillated between the urge to throttle both them and an overwhelming need to coddle them. I was that affected by these two!
In the end, I can only say that this story was the perfect follow up to Lea and Andrew’s story. It was heart warming, frustrating, funny, sad and everything I wanted but didn’t dare hope to expect.
If you enjoy reading stories were the characters are flawed, where the obstacles thrown upon their path are not conventional and their connection is inexplicably obvious, then I urge you to read Lea and Andrew’s story.
All in all, a fantastic roller coaster ride of a story.
