“If you’re broken, I’ll fix you…”
I’m only twenty-one and already damaged goods. A slut. A failure. A disappointment to my picture-perfect family as long as I can remember. I called off my wedding to William Bailey, the only man who thought I was worth fixing. A year later, he’s marrying my sister. Unless I ask him not to…
“If you shatter, I’ll find you…”
But now there’s Asher Logan, a broken man who sees the fractures in my façade and doesn’t want to fix me at all. Asher wants me to stop hiding, to stop pretending. Asher wants to break down my walls. But that means letting him see my ugly secrets and forgiving him for his.
With my past weighing down on me, do I want the man who holds me together or the man who gives me permission to break?

Unbreak Me is absolutely stunning. One of the unique things I loved, is that it's told in three POVs. Maggie is the main narrator, Will is her ex-fiance, and Asher is a man trying to heal. Their three perspectives were perfect.
Maggie believes the things that are said about her. She thinks she's a slut, a home-wrecker, a complete failure to her mother's standards. A year ago, she broke off her engagement to Will and disappeared. Nobody knew where she went. But now she's back for her sister's wedding. To Will. At the wedding, Maggie meets rock star, Asher Logan. He seems to be the only who understands her. She used to be a painter, but her new form of art is mosaics. She likes to take her anger out on the pieces she smashes and then find beauty in the shards. Asher understands that, like her mosaics, she can't be fixed. But put together right, something beautiful can emerge. I love the imagery that came with the mosaics part. That distinguished Will and Asher to Maggie. Will wants to fix her, to keep her together. Asher understands the need to fall apart. He's done it once or twice himself. I only wish more of Asher's background was talked about. I figured out the basics, but the details were kinda hazy.
Already Gone by Kelly Clarkson makes me think of Maggie leaving Will. It's perfect.
