Gemma’s hatred for her father was already felt in the early part of the novel. Her father bailed out on them when her mother was still pregnant with her, and started out a new family. Her mother was hurt and bitter, and it passed on to her. Every summer, she get stuck with her father’s family.
But THIS summer, on her LAST summer with them, everything changed. And I was so happy that it did. Being angry is a little bit tiring. Anger is a very heavy emotion that wears you down, and it wore me down a bit. I was glad Kate, her sister, was able to push beyond Gemma’s wall, and finally had a relationship with her sister that went beyond rolling of eyeballs, and ignoring.
There might be a boy behind her changes – Abe North, a hunky night guard she met. He tries to break the ice around her heart, helps her reconnect with the family she thought she hated and had kept her distance all these years. Slowly, relationships change, she begins to gain not just a brother or sister, but she gains a new self. She once loves her books, and spends her time alone – with Abe, she gains friends and self-confidence.
Just as when she learns to trust men, an unthinkable happened. And just when she thought she’s going to have her happily ever after, her heart gets broken. But this is where her life just got started, because as she starts to bring the pieces back together, with the help of Kate – things in her life started to shift. Soon, this bitter, hurt, and angry girl learned to love herself, and let go of the hate.
But will she be able to get her happy-ever-after with Abe? Or is his betrayal still too painful for her?
Don’t you just love the cover? A couple kissing in the rain, and I was crossing my fingers hoping that this novel would be just as beautiful as the cover. Break Me is a story about love, forgiveness, finding yourself, family and trust. It tells the story of Gemma, a girl filled with hate and mistrust, spending another summer with her estranged father’s family not knowing it was the summer that will completely change her life. It was the summer that she will learn to fall in love, and forgive.
I like the storyline, on how everything fell right into their places. I fell in love with the characters, Kate and her bubbly attitude, Gray and his insights despite his age (I can’t wait for him to really grow up), and even her father, whom surprised me in the end. He wasn’t perfect, he made some mistakes, but despite all this, his love for his daughter knows no bounds.
