Break is a second chance romance story that isn't what you expect at all. Told in both the past and present, Break weaves a tale of love gone wrong and the lengths a man will go to make things right.
Ben and Charley had a whirlwind of a time for six years, a perfect romance, a great love, or so Charley thought until Ben broke her heart. But Charley doesn't know everything about that breakup and years later when Ben finds his way back home to be with his dying father, she's determined to not let Ben in again - to not risk her heart again. But Ben is just as determined to fix their past, but he's holding on to a secret and it just might change everything.
I really enjoyed the way the story went back and forth between the past and present, both showing us how their relationship was and the aftermath of their split leading to the now. The emotions at play really come across well as we see the young love blossoming and the animosity Charley feels now in the present and the desperation Ben feels to fix things. I felt the connection between these two was strong as it ever was and their chemistry remained as well. Though there was a lot to work through for them, I felt there was a good build up to their re-connection even if I would have liked to see Ben grovel more.
