There are many moral reasons why I shouldn't like this book. Things like underage drinking, illegal drugs, physical abuse, and underage sex. And though its not moral, just something I really hate, alternating first person views! Yet, even with all of that, I really liked Breaking Lauren.

Maybe I was just rooting for the underdog, or maybe because secretly, ever girl wants the bad boy, I wanted Danny to end up with Lauren. Im a sucker for a good love story. Im not sure that this was a love story in the traditional sense, you know, where BOTH parties are in love with each other. Or if it was a love story, it wasn't really a good one in the traditional sense, because the two main characters are rarely in scenes together. It was a different kind of love story. One where we get to know the characters on a much deeper level than Im used to with Young Adult books. I dont even know how to explain what we experience with the main characters. All of the hesitance and absolute sureness that comes with being in a relationship. It just seemed REAL to me.

I realize that my review may not seem very flattering, or positive, but I DO recommend the book. Despite everything that I've said above, or maybe because of it, Breaking Lauren is a worthy book to read. All of the negative-ness that I mentioned is what makes the book so good. Ms Deen wrote it in a way that works. The ONLY bad things that I have to say about the book are two of biggest pet peeves:
1) the book just stops! I understand this is book one of a series, but I think each book should be its own story within the larger, overall story. And
2) there were a few minor editing errors.
If you can get past those two things, youre in for a good story. I cant wait to get my hands on the rest of the series.
