I was really excited to read Beak Your Heart, after reading Scratch, which is where we first meet our main character Megan, as Casey’s understanding, patient roommate. I will say, it’s not really necessary to read Scratch before Break Your Heart, but it does make vague references to Casey and her situation after Scratch I was looking forward to Megan having her own story, but unfortunately this book was a little bit of a disappointment.
Because I liked Megan, I didn’t hate this one as much as some people seem to, but I can certainly understand why people feel the way they do. This book falls into the cliche trope of pretty much every New Adult book, except with the added trouble of a forbidden romance. The book is extremely predictable and I imagine most people would get bored reading this book.
The only thing I was hoping for was to see a little bit more of Casey. I know she already had a whole book, but these girls are supposed to be roommates and it seems like they hardly saw each other. They had one meaningful conversation in the whole book, and it just seemed weird to me.
Overall, this was just an okay book. I actually enjoyed the romance, for the most part, but I know this book won’t be for everyone and I know there are much better student/teacher relationship books out there, so unfortunately, this is a book that can be skipped.
