From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.
I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.
I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she'd believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

Alll the feels!!!!
Breaking Without You was an amazing story that had tears flowing. This story really hit home and I am so glad I got to read it. The characters are all interesting and I can’t wait to read everyone else’s story! Love this new series.
Such a good new series!
Holy cow can Carrie Ann write!!! I've always loved how well written her stories are, but this one has a SUPER hard subject and she did it SO WELL!
These friends are dealing with a crippling loss when we are introduced to everyone, and you truly get to feel their feelings as they deal with it. Violet had gone through so much between this and her stupid ex that it was almost a little refreshing to see someone who wasn't completely put together. Really all three women were working on putting themselves together, but since this was Violet's book we got to see hers up close. I loved that. I also loved adding in Cameron, the one who disappeared.
From the time that Violet awkwardly see Cameron again I knew they had the best story. There was so much untold between them, and I knew it'd be such a ride finding out what happened there. Their love was the best roller coaster. We truly got the best seat as they talked through, sexed through and repaired their relationship. I also loved how she really used the word Fractured in this book. Both Violet and Cameron had many fractures that they needed to repair. It was so amazing watch them repair too.
Now we have to talk about everyone else. I LOVED these girls so much, Harmony and Sienna were so great, and I loved the addition of the Connolly brothers, Aiden, Brendon and even Dillon. It was so mesmerizing to watch when the group got together, and I especially loved Dillon's quirks. Watching the girls come to grips with their new lives, and the brothers do the same. It was so special. I cannot wait to read these next books and go on their roller coasters too
Breaking without you
I both loved and hated this book. I loved it because it is so real. Having had people in my life suffer depression, having lived through the turmoil after, having asked the same questions of what could I have done. Reading a book bring these real issues to light in a realistic way soothes an ache in my heart. I hated it because it brings back those memories, but even that I have to love because sometimes we go too long trying to push away the pain instead of remembering the good things that made those people so loved.
Violet Knight is desperately trying to come to some understanding of what happened to her friend Allison. She feels like there must be something she missed, or was to busy to notice the cry for help. Now as she attends her friends funeral and wake it becomes a reality that she and her two other best friends must learn their new dynamic as a group of three instead of four.
