Review Blitz: Breakdown by Amanda Lance

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?

~~I received this in exchange for a honest review~~

This book has left me speechless. You have this girl, who-in her mind- doesn't have anyone there for her. She has been planning for months how to do it, then the night is finally here and all she wants is the guy to leave her alone. Billy is a fast guy, he likes speed. He sees this girl on the side of the road and he just has to stop. There is something about this girl that he can't get off of his mind. Will she finish what she started? Can Billy leave things alone? 

I have never read a book that has left me feeling like I didn't have any words to describe what I am feeling. This book has done that to me. This is a well written book, that has raw emotion in it. I was instantly grabbed at the beginning of this book and my heart ached for this girl. I wanted to jump into the book and try and help her, talk to her, and convince her that what she is about to do isn't OK. This is the first book by Amanda that I have read, I know that it isn't going to be the last. I was to see what else she writes!!

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 favorite 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.
