Fearless and flirtatious, Megan Porter isn’t your typical math major. On the fast track to graduating with honors, a spot in her school’s masters program is nearly guaranteed. But her senior year is quickly turned upside-down by her new thesis advisor, cryptography professor Dr. Nick Muramoto. Young, effortlessly good-looking, and intellectual, he’s far more intriguing than the immature jocks Megan usually goes for. And as she decodes the hidden messages he leaves in the margins of her assignments and in their emails, she realizes this might be more than a schoolgirl crush–especially after they share a passionate kiss…

Soon Nick and Megan grow closer, and their different worlds begin to merge. But if their relationship is discovered, Nick’s career could be over. With Megan’s parents close to campus on business, hiding their love becomes an even greater challenge. Yet keeping secrets will lead Megan to discover hers is just one piece in a much larger puzzle–next to her mother’s stash of painkillers–that may put her carefully laid plans for the future in jeopardy.

My Review:

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.
