    3.5 stars Well done for a debut novel. In fact I really liked that there are no "mean girls" or other rude and nasty characters. It was a refreshing change. Amber's dad left when she was 5. Since them her mom has dated quite a few guys and Amber has gotten attached to them to various...

    Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for an advance copy. I really liked this book, it was a nice contemporary romance novel and quick read. I found myself getting so invested with the characters that I finished this a couple of hours. While there were a few things I had issues wit...

    This is not a romance-centered YA (but of course there is enough romance to satisfy us fans). Amber has learned the hard way to survive the succession of boyfriends her mother gets: she had to create a list of rules not to get attached ever again either to the boyfriends nor to the ...

    RULES WE?RE MEANT TO BREAK is everything I love about contemporary YA. Its main character, Amber, is so easy to root for, its romance is totally swoony, and it?s full of family, friendship, and college-application conflict that rings very true. Plus, Buffy the dog is ADORABLE. One ...

    Rules We're Meant to Break is a heartfelt coming of age story about the daughter of a single mother facing down the upheaval of "home" life by giving herself guidelines meant to keep her emotions in check. As the story opens, Amber does what any normal girl who just had her life upende...

    Rules We're Meant to Break had potential but lots of things annoyed me which dropped my satisfaction in the story. Amber was unhealthily obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and KU (which at first I thought stood for Kentucky University and then realized it was Kansas). When Ambe...

    3.5 stars The very first thing that struck me in this story is how much I REALLY didn?t like Amber?s mom. If you?re looking for a first class narcissist who cares only about her own needs and has no regard for her daughter?s feelings, this woman is it. She also can?t maint...

    My daughter saw this book at the library and chose it for me because it had a pink heart on the cover. I indulged her and borrowed it, yes she?s only 2 1/2 years old?haha, how could I say no? And yes her favorite color is PINK. ? I figured I needed a YA contemporary book since I...

    This was a pretty good book about a girl who?d had an unstable upbringing with her mum, although her mum actually sounded nice, just a bit flakey with guys. She understandably puts emotional barriers up, but struggles to keep them up when she and her mum move in with a new guy and hi...

    This is such a cute young adult romance. Everything from the settings to the characters sucked me in. Amber lives with her single mother, her father having left them when she was just five. Her mom bounces from one relationship to another, and after a particularly difficult breakup for...

    I liked Rules We're Meant to Break, which I picked up because I thought the cover was cute. It's a cookie-cutter clean, short novel, but I like the earnest, charming message at the heart. I appreciate the prologue that efficiently provides insight into why Amber is why she is from bein...

    I only continued reading this book to see when Amber would blow up on her mother for her selfish behavior in relationships. Who acts like that? Just move with her boyfriends without really talking or seeing how that is affecting your child??? (Ok, I get some people act like that, but w...
