200words (or less) review: I was absolutely blown away by Pushing The Limits and have enjoyed all the other Katie McGarry books I’ve read so I was very excited about Breaking the Rules. The book is set before Dare You To so if you’ve read the others in the series you know Echo and Noah stay together – that’s reassuring because this story is very much about how they struggle trying to do just that.
I liked that Echo and Noah’s relationship was challenged. As much as you want them to have that happy ending it wouldn’t have been believable but I will say that after a while, for me, it got repetitive. Breaking the Rules began to feel quite long. About halfway through the story and it was just one continued mess of a relationship.
Katie McGarry’s stories are gritty and it wouldn’t be one of her books if your emotions didn’t get shredded at some point. I think for me I would have liked a few more happier moments but I got the ending I wanted so that’s good.
