    1. Quick housekeeping: this is book 2 of the series. It cannot be read as a standalone. And it takes place right after the end of book 1. This entire review will be a spoiler IF you haven't read A Forbidden Rumspringa. If you have, it is spoiler freeSoI waited some time before reading A Forbidden Rumspringa. I hestitated for lots of reasons, but mostly I just don't do books that deal with religious content. Personal issues. But, I finally gave in to my curiosityd geez am I so glad I did. I loved it [...]


    2. A Clean Break picks up right where A Forbidden Rumspringa left off. David and Isaac have just arrived in San Fransisco and are settling in with Isaac's brother.While trying to fit in with the English is tough, they do the best they can together and in their own way. David sticks to what he knows - carpentry. He continues with the business he built when he lived with his family, and works hard to keep it. Isaac wants a change and goes to school to earn his GED. I really liked that they chose diff [...]


    3. OMG. Why is the next book not out right now? WHY???Breathe. I can do this. This book has not gotten the best of me. I won't let that happen. But it has, hasn't it? I'm literally shaking right now. Ready to scream at something. Someone. I need to murder someone and I need to do it good. A Clean Break has left me feeling a lot of feelings and I'm not sure what to think just yet. This book is amazing and wonderful and powerful. And the characters are fantastic and lovable. I just want to hug them b [...]


    4. *** 4.5 Stars ***Honestly, this book had a lot going for it before I even started to read it; I picked the first book in the series, A Forbidden Rumspringa, as my favourite book of 2014. I loved David and Isaac individually, and I adored them as a couple. I was fascinated by the world that they inhabited - by the parts that they enjoyed and took comfort in as much as by the parts that chaffed and stifled - and I was blown away by the quality of Andrews' writing and the sensitivity with which she [...]


    5. I tried to write a review of this and ended up with 1000 words of disclaimer and dithering and no real review. So I have two things to say. Well, and then just BIT more dithering.No spoilers on plot or story, though if you're like DON'T TELL ME ANYTHING AT ALL, get out of here. Which is probably a general rule of thumb on reviews of books you haven't read yet.1) If you want to know what I thought of this book, go to twitter and search the hashtag #ACBBB. The hashtag makes no sense because I was [...]


    6. This book takes place just after the ending of the first one. David and Isaac find themselves living with Isaac's brother and his wife in San Francisco. Everything is shocking and they struggle to adapt, although Isaac seems to do better. This book is told from Adam's POV. He feels guilty and doubtful that he's keeping Isaac behind. He works hard but the struggles continue and he soon finds himself in a big crossroad. I don't think Isaac had it easier, but since we aren't in his head and we don' [...]


    7. **** 4 owie stars ****Keira Andrews continues to write and tell a beautiful story with beautiful characters!How David feels in this installment is just so heart squeezing. There's a lot of miscommunication and lack of communication between Isaac and David. They both holds their tongue. David is swamped with guilt and responsibility, he even has great (view spoiler)[ panic attack (hide spoiler)] and he turns to (view spoiler)[alcoho (hide spoiler)] to deal with everything. I find it surprising re [...]


    8. I loved this just as much as the first. If you haven't read A Forbidden Rumspringa, (1) what are you waiting for? and (2) this review will likely have some spoilers for that story.The switch over to David's POV from this story worked really well for me. David struggles with so much, some of which was expected based on the situation he left back in Zebulon. He has done what he can, but he can't help feeling selfish at times thinking about how difficult it must be for his mother and sisters. Isaac [...]



    9. God, I'm so mad at this bookSpoilers beware for book 1:David and Isaac are in San Francisco now, staying with Isaac's brother who left the Amish community years earlier.Aaron welcomes Isaac and David in the modern world and is determined to show them the many things they missed growing up.While Isaac embraces his new life excitedly, David feels intimidated and way out of his league in the bright and loud, gay-friendly world of San Francisco. All he wants is to curl up with Isaac and lie under th [...]


    10. After reading and enjoying so much A Forbidden Rumspringa, I wasn't expecting so feel disappointed with this book I don't want to spoil the story to future readers, but the main reason for my rating, is excess of guilt. Of course that guilty feelings were expected, the transition from one way of living to another completely different, would bring tension between Isaac and David what I was not expecting was that the entire book was about guilt I know, deep inside, that the third book will be much [...]


    11. Nothing you can know that isn't knownNothing you can see that isn't shownNowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to beIt's easyAll you need is love Well… it isn't quite that easy, but for some reason this song kept popping in my head while reading this. Suffice it to say, the angst continues. Isaac and David have left their Amish life behind so that they could be together, and it's a complete culture shock as they're confronted with the modern world. At times this was equal parts funn [...]


    12. Isaac and David, after leaving Zebulon at the end of A Forbidden Rumspringa, have arrived in San Francisco and are staying with Isaac's brother Aaron, who had left the Amish way of life a decade, or so, before.Before I get into the book, itself, I must say that I loved Aaron and his wife Jen. Aaron not only left the Amish community, but he has really found his own way, and got himself an education and is now a high school math teacher. Also, he left his faith entirely behind. He's not a believer [...]


    13. A Clean Break is what might have been on Isaac and David's mind when they left their community in Zebulon. A break with their old world and its endless rules and regulations. But things are not that easy (are they ever!). I loved that we got David's POV after having Isaac's in book 1!For David life in San Francisco could as well be on a different planet. There is so much to take in and learn he is totally overwhelmed by the experience. And boy, I felt for him. It must be awful hearing people tal [...]


    14. 4.5 starsIsaac and David arrived to San Francisco. While exploring the English world is for them exciting it's also scary and confusing. Isaac's brother Aaron and his wife Jen help them settle up and acclimate to their new life.Now, that Isaac and David don't have to follow Amish restrictions and can be whatever they want, Isaac decides to do something different and goes to school to get his GED. David, on the other hand, continues being a carpenter.This time the story is told from David's persp [...]



    15. BR with Paul, Julie and Nathan (re-read for me)**********************************BR, February 3rd (release day) with Julie, Marco, Marte, Trisha and Momo. Just the rating!!! Any book that can make me a fucking mess, deserves 5 stars!!! (Review to follow, when the others are finished)


    16. 02.19.15So if you haven’t read the first book (A Forbidden Rumspringa), I suggest you get a hold of it first before reading this one.Okay, first reaction after reading it – I was seething! I was mad, and wanted to bitchslap everyone within five feet. After a couple of days, I got it together and thought about David and Isaac’s first foray into the “outside” world.It’s been difficult for Isaac and David to leave their Amish settlement in Zebulon much more for David because he knows th [...]


    17. ¡Aaaawwwww!!! ¡Me encantan Isaac y David!! ¡MENCANTAN!! ¡Qué lindos, qué tiernos, qué adorables y qué calientes! Y es que las escenas de sexo en esta segunda parte son *iconos de fuego* (view spoiler)[ ¿Qué me decís de la del espejo??? e.e(hide spoiler)]Siguen sin convencerme algunos aspectos de la trama y (view spoiler)[ la cosa termina en cliffhanger (merde)(hide spoiler)] pero ha sido un placer leerlo, el de Isaac y David ya está entre mis amores favoritos. <3 <3 <3***Sub [...]


    18. Short and sweet review. Although it did have the feel of a book in the middle at times, it was great and I need book 3 like yesterday!! (A Way Home, comes out in April). Absolutely chock full of feelz, MY Isaac and MY David need closure Madame Author. A polite goodbye to Zebulon and it's inhabitants, and let them and Anna live in the real world of their own free willBig PLEASE and thank you. 5 sparkly Clark 'the slimy git' stars from me.A big Mwah!! to Mona for the buddy read.



    19. Wow, Clark is so on my shit list right now. How could he do that!?!?!?!?!?! And yep, it just goes to show you that surprising your significant other by showing up unexpectedly never ends well. Or at least, not in the movies or books, anyway.David and Isaac are just as good in book 2 as they were in book 1. I love them together. They seriously need to learn to talk to each other about things that bother them (view spoiler)[hello, panic attacks - those are NOT good. David needs to TALK to Isaac an [...]



    20. Aunque Isaac y David son un amor, no me ha convencido esta segunda entrega, de hecho, me he aburrido en algunas partes, aunque supongo que es necesaria para cerrar el círculo(view spoiler)[ Aún no me decido a calificar el final de peliculero, tiene todas las papeletas, pero es interesante el conflicto que se establece entre los padres y los díscolos hermanos que vuelven a Zebulon para intentar ayudar a su hermanito pequeño, esto claro lo digo una vez leída la mitad del libro 3(hide spoiler) [...]


    21. Isaac y David comienzan una nueva vida en San Francisco y mis pensamientos son los mismos que con el primer libro. Una pareja adorable, un libro para entretener y no un estudio antropológico. Eso sí, aquí tenemos algo más de angst y unas escenas de sexo muy buenas ;).Si os gustó el primero, desde luego imprescindible.


    22. It was great to be back with David and Isaac. I didn't love this one quite as much as book #1, but I still LOVE this series and can't wait for the final book in this trilogy.


    23. When I finished A Forbidden Rumspringa, I had certain ideas about what we'd see in the second book. We'd been told that the guys would go to San Francisco and immediately I was filled up with my own reaction to that city: adoration, freedom, bliss! I anticipated the boys arriving and being absolutely high on unadulterated freedom, joyful at seeing men holding hands or giving a casual smooch on the street, and blooming into the new, happier English world full of opportunities they'd never dreamed [...]


    24. I have just been hit by a tidal wave of emotion. I haven’t been so invested in a series of books for a long time. Last week I left Isaac and David skipping off into a bright new future together and breathed a huge sigh of relief that after all they went through they were in the clear. Nothing but plain sailing now.However, I should have known that nothing is going to be that easy and in the hands of Ms Andrews I’ve just been put through another emotional wringer. For our boys coming from an [...]


    25. This is the second book in the series - it does not stand alone and it has a very open, cliffhanger ending. There will be spoilers in this review for the first book.I enjoyed this story a lot, particularly in the first two thirds. I loved seeing David and Isaac away from their tiny isolated community, plunged into modern life. We are introduced to some excellent supporting characters, particularly Jen who is Isaac's sister-in-law. She manages to be supportive and accepting without being stereoty [...]
