Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Honest and full of heart, this clever contemporary romance debut deftly combines utterly relatable family drama with all the sweetness and uncertainy that comes with falling in love.
Rule #1: Don’t get attached.
Amber lives by strict rules to survive her mother’s love life: Always keep your eyes on the horizon and never get close to anyone connected to Mom’s boyfriends.
But after they move in with Kevin, the latest of her mom’s “soul mates,” the rules become increasingly difficult to follow. Kevin’s daughter, Cammie, keeps acting like Amber’s friend, even though she’s definitely not. And Jordan—star basketball player, hottest boy in school, and Cammie’s best friend—keeps showing up at the most inconvenient moments.
Amber has reasons for every one of her rules, and following them is the only way to protect her heart when her mom inevitably moves on. But as she spends more time with Kevin, his daughter, and especially Jordan, she starts to wonder if the rules might be worth breaking this time.
Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Rules We’re Meant to Break is a charming, heartachingly real story of family and young love by debut author Natalie Williamson.

Review of Rules We’re Meant To Break
Review (4.5 Stars): I loved this adorable story and Amber was such a sweet likeable character. She has never gotten her hopes up in regards to her mom’s love life and made up rules so she wouldn’t get attached and ultimately hurt when her mom’s relationship went south. This story was sweet, light-hearted and shows that sometimes it is worth taking a chance because it can turn out to be the best thing that has ever happened to you. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Williamson’s next book will be.
