What they say: Charlotte Ferro is about to jump.

Yet nothing ruins a perfectly good suicide attempt worse than a handsome do-gooder. After William O’Reilly convinces her to take one last ride with him, Charlotte finds herself forgetting about her own problems and enjoying a world of which she never dreamed.

Now addicted to the rush of fast cars and cool criminals, Charlotte finds herself leaning less towards the ledge and more toward the arms of her savior. But with reasons of his own for keeping Charlotte safe from herself, William is reluctant to involve her in his criminal undertakings. Will his career choice keep them apart? Will Charlotte’s painful past?

Author Spotlight:

A native of New Jersey and lifelong nerd, Amanda Lance recently completed her Master in Liberal Arts at Thomas Edison State College after her BA in English Literature and AFA in creative writing. As an avid reader of all genres, some of her favourite authors include Hemingway, Marquis de Sade, Stevenson, Bukowski and Radcliffe.

When she isn’t writing or reading, Amanda can found indulging in film noir or hiking with her other half and their extremely spoiled dog. She is obsessively working on her next book and trying to tame her caffeine addiction.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I'm gonna start out by saying that Breakdown is completely different to what I was expecting. Yes, it's extremely sad and dark in places, but it's also heartwarming, satirical and funny at times. 

Seeing her about to jump, William sets out to show Charlotte all the good things in life. In turn she helps him with his problems. When we meet Charlotte aka Jumper, she's surrounded by nothingness and despair. She's in a situation I cannot possibly imagine being in, but William and his car slowly begin to bring her out of her shell.

I was expecting William to be a typical alpha, bad boy but he's so much more. He's strong, funny, snarky and kinda cool. Yet at the same time he's determined and troubled, but extremely vulnerable. 

The banter between Charlotte and William had me in hysterics at times. I liked how Amanda Lance included some really funny and dramatic moments, as well as the sad and dark ones. The secondary characters are intriguing and I'd love to read a story about William's sisters. I really enjoyed this sad story and was desperate for them to find a HEA!

4 Stars in my Sky!
