    ARC provided by Bloomsbury in exchange for an honest review This was my first book by Danielle and I am abso freaking lutely a fan of hers now As soon as I read that this was a suspense thriller type of book, I was all for it No questions asked The dark undertone that it seemed to ooze with every page made me too giddy for words and I wanted it to last a lifetime Going in, I knew NOTHING about this world and I just found out that I read the second book in the series They actually seem to ARC provided by Bloomsbury in exchange for an honest review This was my first book by Danielle and I am abso freaking lutely a fan of hers now As soon as I read that this was a suspense thriller type of book, I was all for it No questions asked The dark undertone that it seemed to ooze with every page made me too giddy for words and I wanted it to last a lifetime Going in, I knew NOTHING about this world and I just found out that I read the second book in the series They actually seem to follow different characters so I don t feel like I ve spoiled myself too much No harm done This news made me really happy because I m dying to knowabout this world and now I can read a prequel as I hope for a continuation to this one I seriously can t wait to get my hands on it I feel like my prayers have been answered and I don t have to wait for a release This book follows Charlotte as she tries to dig through the aftermath of the suicides of her two best friends We get to witness as her world is torn from under her feet and she starts to question everything she thought was true I have never read a story like this one and Charlotte was a unique main character, in my opinion I loved seeing how she reacted to everything around her and she made me proud at times There were quite a few characters that I did not like but I won t name them in order to keep myself from spoiling anything But I will say that I really liked Zoe and the dynamic she had with Charlotte This entire story made me feel like I was walking through a field of landmines where the only way to get answers was to step on each of them It ripped out many tears from me because there were some brutal events that I couldn t stop envisioning They were horrendous and it took a while for me to collect myself before forcing myself to continue with the story With that said, there was also a lot of badassery and savagery that I didn t know I was in store for A lot of other things caught me by surprise, and I am glad I didn t know about them, because I would ve been too intimidated to read this if I had I really hope I can readbooks as dark and darker as this one.The only critical comment I have for this novel was that a few things were anticlimactic when it was built up like crazy I still liked the story a lot but I would ve loved for some secrets to have hadunf to them in order to make the story a true 5 star read Besides that, this is a story that I deeply cherish because it appealed to my dark side and I can t wait for the next one 4.5 5 stars

    Breaking definitely delivered the venomous thriller it promised It was short, sharp and shiny I managed to whizz through it in one evening, the very night that it appeared on my front door It helped that the beginning was edgy and drew me in but I will say that it didn t quite manage to perfectly pace the intensity throughout the story Maybe because of the character s mild reactions to the twists and revelations I understand why they acted like they did but their passivity really dampened m Breaking definitely delivered the venomous thriller it promised It was short, sharp and shiny I managed to whizz through it in one evening, the very night that it appeared on my front door It helped that the beginning was edgy and drew me in but I will say that it didn t quite manage to perfectly pace the intensity throughout the story Maybe because of the character s mild reactions to the twists and revelations I understand why they acted like they did but their passivity really dampened my own enthusiasm There were definitely elements of the story that could have and should have been expanded on, especially in the second half The ending was also a little rushed Cliffhangers normally make or break a book for me but I don t quite know how I feel about this one I definitely needfrom this world now but I would have liked to see the story wrapped up with a solid conclusion With all that being said, there was definitely something about Breaking that kept me on the edge of my seat, eager for answers.Everything else about the story hit all the marks but failed to do anything above and beyond that would make this a standout read I did enjoy Rollins writing style She managed to create a dark, suspenseful atmosphere but some of the dialogue felt a little stiff The characters were decent enough I liked that they played into the stereotypical boarding school student rich kids moulds but had a littlelife breathed into them Charlotte was an interesting protagonist and I liked exploring her relationships with the other characters I wished Jack had been a littlenuanced but I did like Zoe The romance while it did nothing for me personally was a solid addition to the overall story It actually had a role to play I am so sick of unnecessary romances If the drama had been a littledownplayed although I know that it is realistic in this setting , I would have been very much on board Overall A solid thriller and a decent read, just nothing particularly original Also, for everyone that is curious about whether this can be read as a standalone, I would say that it definitely could I know that the storyline was meant to tie in with Burning but I honestly remember next to nothing about that book and found it easy to follow this storyline regardless Review copy provided by the publisher for an honest review. Original Thoughts I love the cover but I m a little confused how this is going to tie in with Burning I still have so many questions

    Well this was interesting It all got solved a bit too quickly at the end but I like how it was also an open ending.

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.While BREAKING certainly met its goal of being a thriller, I was mostly disappointed with the book The hints of the supernatural were disappointing and though it kept my interest, there were too many questions left unanswered for me to be completely satisfied with the read.To be fair, I read BREAKING in one sitting It kept me completely glued to my seat, and I was desperate to know how it ended while I was reading it Once I finished and thought abou Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.While BREAKING certainly met its goal of being a thriller, I was mostly disappointed with the book The hints of the supernatural were disappointing and though it kept my interest, there were too many questions left unanswered for me to be completely satisfied with the read.To be fair, I read BREAKING in one sitting It kept me completely glued to my seat, and I was desperate to know how it ended while I was reading it Once I finished and thought about it, theI realized I had some issues with the book.One major problem I had was that Charlotte s friends, Ariel and Devon, are already dead at the beginning of the book There are flashbacks, but not enough, in my opinion, for you to really understand Charlotte s friendship with the two of them It was hard to get myself to care about Ariel and Devon and what happened to them, because I didn t have any connection to them other than that Charlotte cared about them Another issue was the ending It seems to end on a cliffhanger, as if there should bebooks, but I don t see any news about further books in this series So that was disappointing.Had I realized when I requested it that it was a companion novel, I m not sure I would have read it, but you don t need to have read BURNING, the companion novel, to understand what is happening in BREAKING I easily picked up all the drama, and in fact think I may have appreciated the thriller aspectssince I didn t have hints from BURNING.So, enough though I was entertained by BREAKING, ultimately I was left feeling unfulfilled If you enjoy mysteries and thrillers, BREAKING might be up your alley, but if you like a littleclosure when you read a book, I can t confidently recommend it.Sexual content Kissing, references to sex

    I received this from Netgalley in return for an honest review 2.5 StarsCharlottes two best friends committed suicide and she want to find out why While packing up her things in her dorm after being asked to leave , the private and prestigious boarding school she attends, she discovers a bottle with the instruction drink me so naturally she does This turns out to be one of three clues and so she convinces her mother and the dean to give her one last shot What she doesn t tell them howI received this from Netgalley in return for an honest review 2.5 StarsCharlottes two best friends committed suicide and she want to find out why While packing up her things in her dorm after being asked to leave , the private and prestigious boarding school she attends, she discovers a bottle with the instruction drink me so naturally she does This turns out to be one of three clues and so she convinces her mother and the dean to give her one last shot What she doesn t tell them however is that she intends to get to the bottom of why the two people closest to her killed themselves, and she uncovers something shocking This started off with a contemporary feel, Charlotte struggling with the loss of Devon and Ariel, who to her had been like family, her thinking that she was the reason they took their own lives as well as juggling the less than perfect relationship she has with her mother and the feelings she has for her best friends ex boyfriend It then had the feeling of a mystery, with the search for why they died and then sci fi paranormal elements were added It was pretty boring to start off with, I wasn t all that invested in the story, but about halfway through things started getting interested and I wanted to see how the story played out and figure out what the hell was happening I m not sure my feeling towards the main character Charlotte, there wasn t really anything super interesting about her that made me connect to her The way it ended gives the impression that there s gonna be a sequel There is another book related to this, Burning, but I checked it out before reading and someone said that you could read this without reading that I think I d probably read the sequel, if there is one, if I got an arc, like with this or it was really cheap on Kindle
