Luke has almost nothing…no job, no apartment, no stability. His life consists of off-the-books jobs and crashing on the couches of buddies who’ll take him in spite of his screaming PTSD nightmares. He wouldn’t even care about his lack of stability except for one reason: when he comes home from his tour in Afghanistan, Luke is surprised to find he has a two-year-old daughter. He instantly wants to take care of his little girl and protect her from her party-hungry mother. He just has no idea how.
Through luck and circumstance, Luke begins fight-training with Marcus Walker, Atlanta’s top MMA fighter. With a proper outlet for his rage and physical tension, Luke pulls his life together one small piece at a time. It’s not until he meets Jennalyn Roche, however, that he understands love, peace, and hope. With the influence of good friends and the woman he calls his angel, even scars as deep as his may heal.
Breaking Through begins with us getting to know how Jenna and Luke met. Luke has a two year old daughter who got sick so he had to take her to the doctor's office. At the doctor's office is where Luke meets Jenna. They instantly have a connection, but Luke has some major issues and has a hard time asking Jenna out. But after a few more trips to the office he takes a chance with his little girl's help and asks Jenna out. From then on they form a beautiful relationship. But Luke has some major dark issues going on and he won't let Jenna help him. These two have to go through a whole lot before they can find their happily ever after.
I really liked Luke and Jenna together. And I loved how they had their changing point as well, even though I was a little worried for Jenna. Not to mention you throw in that little girl Sophie and it makes the book so much sweeter. I also loved getting to see more of the characters from the previous books. They added a whole lot more to this story as well. This one to me as a whole lot sadder than any of the previous books, and I really felt for Luke, and Jenna both. I felt for Jenna because she was strong enough to try to help Luke even when she could get hurt in the process. I won't say much more because it will spoil it. But these two were perfect together, and the book was very good.
