BLOG TOUR: Breaking Alexandria by KA Robinson



Synopsis:


Alexandria’s drug-dealing boyfriend, Joel, isn’t exactly the white knight she’s always dreamed of, but she can’t deny the crazy connection they have. She would do anything for him, including helping him sell drugs in order to fit perfectly into his world.

After catching Alexandria dealing for Joel, instead of turning her into the cops, Alexandria’s mother forces her to move to her grandparents’ farm in West Virginia. Spending the summer in the country, away from Joel, is the last thing Alexandria wants to do. But lucky for her, the sexy farmhand, Landon, who helps out around her grandparents’ place, is a very nice distraction. She tries her best to ignore her attraction to him, especially since she still loves Joel.

When Joel does the unforgivable, Alexandria turns to her new friend, Landon, for comfort, and it ignites an undeniable spark of attraction between them. Soon, she finds herself caught between two very different men, and the struggles within her heart just might end up breaking Alexandria.

Review:

WOWSERS! I'm going to start by saying that I've been a huge fan of KA Robinson since she first released Torn. KA never disappointing when it comes to writing. Her stories always seem to tear me apart. 

Breaking Alexandria is no different. It's starts off with us seeing what path in life Lexi has taken. It's not pretty. Her boyfriend Joel is her everything and she will do all she can to be with him.

After getting into trouble yet again, Alexandria's parents take drastic measures to get their daughter back on the straight and narrow. She gets shipped off to her grandparents farm, three hours away from her home. And Joel. 

When Lexi arrives she meets the new helpers on her grandparents farm, Landon and his dad. They instantly have a connection but Lexi fights it. She has a boyfriend and loves him. Alexandria and Landon have to work close together so they become friends. 

Being away from Joel makes Lexi realise how much she's changed. After a mistake, a kiss with Landon, Lexi decides she needs to see Joel. Even if it means she'll get into trouble with her Gram and grandpa. What she finds breaks her. 

Things aren't all as they seem though. After suffering heartache and moving on, Lexi forms a strong friendship with Landon; which leads to a relationship.

Everything is going well until Lexi's world comes crashing to a halt. I have to say. this part about broke me. I cried so hard for so long that I had to stop to take a breather. 

This book is fantastic. It really pulls on every emotion imaginable. I was left feeling like I'd been on an adventure full of highs and lows. 

KA writes beautifully and really manages to make it easy to connect with her characters. I'll be honest and say that I was torn between Joel and Landon. I loved them both.

I highly recommend this book! 5 fan-freaking-tastic stars!!!

Excerpt

Teaser 

“Whatever. Even when you’re tired, you never shut up.”
I stuck my tongue out at him. “Are you trying to tell me that I talk too much?”
“Nah. If you talked too much, I’d just put duct tape over your mouth.”
“At least you’re honest,” I grumbled.

- Landon and Lexi
