Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

test the limit of love - I Won’t Break (A Broken Love Story, #2) by E. Mellyberry

18+ What happened five years ago that made Andrew leave?
What happened after Twin Peaks?
What happened to their baby?


Published: February 2nd, 2016

Lea and Andrew’s story continues in this sequel to My Lea. From the city of San Francisco, the tale journeys on to the other part of the world: Jakarta, Bali, and Tokyo.

It’s been five years since Andrew walked out of his apartment and left Lea in America. Five long years without any single contact.

Andrew is now a twenty-eight-year-old man who just inherited his father’s business empire and is about to marry the granddaughter of the wealthiest man in Singapore.
At twenty-four, Lea is in the early process of sorting out her life and career back in her home country.

When Andrew’s father passed away, they are reunited again for the first time since America.

Like it or not, they are forced to revisit their past and deal with their unfinished business. For most people, love is the answer to everything. But Lea and Andrew’s love is far from ordinary. Theirs is tainted by sin and guilt. And anger. Lots of anger.

What happened five years ago that made Andrew leave?
What happened after Twin Peaks?
What happened to their baby?

Told in both past and present events, I Won’t Break tests the limit of love when faced with grief and heartbreak, discovers the true power of forgiveness, and explores the meaning of second chances.

I Won’t Break is the sequel to My Lea (A Broken Love Story series) and cannot be read as a standalone.

What is a broken love? 

A Broken Love Story is the name of the book series I wrote. Naturally, love is a feeling associated with everything that’s beautiful in the world. It’s pure; it’s sacred; it holds the magical healing power. It’s everything but broken.

But what if it was? What if a love shared between two people came from something bad? 

Unlike fairy tales, the story in my books doesn’t start with good and perfect moments. Well, yes, it started when a girl met a boy and they felt a spark of attraction. But the story really kicks off when one horrible incident broke their relationship. It tore them apart. Eventually it brought them back together again and taught them how to survive. 

Would you be able to love someone so innocently after a devastating event that turned your life upside down? Would you be able to look at the world the same way again? 

A broken love is the kind of love that’s tainted with guilt and regret. The pureness is corrupted by our sin, by our mistake. Love is not supposed to hurt, but broken love hurts the person you love the most. Our logic will tell us to back off, to run away from this and find ourselves a better kind of love, the one that’s not broken. But sometimes heart does things human’s brain can’t reason. I strongly believe that love is the answer to everything. Yes, I mean it. A bigger love is the answer to a broken love. A bigger heart can find the kindness within us to love more. 

That’s exactly what my books are trying to say. They’re telling a heart-breaking story about an imperfect love that’s trying to survive in the middle of a storm. It’s a story about second chances, hope, and making peace with your past.
