    1. ***REVIEW***Breaking Free:Una Familia SeguraBy Annie HughesI read, & enjoyed, this book before it underwent this edit & overhaul. Yet I was still struck with giddy excitement when it landed back on my kindle for a reread, which speaks volumes about this brand new author, the story & characters she has created. Having read & reviewed this previously does NOT make this easier to write, I mean how can I condense all my thoughts into a spoiler free review???As I did the last time I a [...]


    2. I was honored to get to read Breaking Free: Una Familia Segura as an ARC. I do not read a lot of YA, but this book far surpassed all expectations I had. It has a beautiful story about Anna - a teenager who has always lived in a horrible household with abuse as her daily nightmare. When her stepfather kills her mother, she learns about her father for the first time and meets him. He never knew she existed, but takes her in as if they have always been close.For the first time, Anna is given a chan [...]


    3. A Normal Family-Something We All DeserveUna Familia Seguraa truly beautiful and meaningful title and yet such a sad story for such an ugly situation.It touched me so deeplyund myself unable to breathe on so many occasions as Anna's story started unfolding.How can such ugliness exist? How can any human being do such unspeakable things to an innocent soul?Why do such monsters live & exist among us?This novel makes you question so many things,it made my stomach turnbut there is a higher power o [...]


    4. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book.You know when a book is amazing when you're really struggling to think of how to sum up how great it is in a review, and I definitely have this issue right now!I read this book in a few hours as I truly could not put it down! I was shocked to learn that it was the authors first novel, as it is written spectacularly well and is honestly just perfect! This isn't your typical teenage story, I found myself trying to predict what was going to happen ( [...]


    5. Annie Hughes Review: Breaking Free: Una Familia SeguraGreat read for all ages!I enjoyed this story from the first. I found it difficult to put it down. I have read and reviewed many books, but found it difficult not to give away spoilers when it came to this book. Those that have read my reviews notice that I normally give no spoilers. Yes, I was that excited about it! Anna’s story in his book grabbed me from the very first word and took me through a journey that I will not soon forget. Annie [...]


    6. Thank you, Annie Hughes providing me with your debut novel Breaking Free: Una Familia Segura so I may bring you this review. Annie Hughes debut Young Adult novel Breaking Free: Una Familia Segura was so well written that I was hooked on the first page. I was amazed that this was her first book she ever published. Once I started reading it I could not put it down. Of course once I got to a really good part of the book my Kindle battery died! I was not a happy camper and couldn’t wait to get bac [...]


    7. Ok so I will admit I don't read a lot of Y/A books, and when I do it has to be something awesome.d this one was! I just don't know how to describe what I just read. It was more story than I expected in this genred it left me turning the pages so fast! Anna's not broken just bentrry but I totally think those words fit! She goes through so much in her life that the fact she is still fighting makes me admire her so much! A weaker person would have given up years before. She has her new family to th [...]


    8. wow!! I was gifted this for an honest review. I love love loved this book! such a different book to what I usually read but I loved it none the less! Anne is such a strong character, to go through what she has and still be standing is outstanding! I love Jake and Logan. i love the relationship that blossoms between David and Anne throughout the book. only four stars because I felt some parts could be elaborated on. But it's a great debut novel!! xx


    9. Was gifted a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.Wowwhat a fantastic debut novel. Characters are easy to relate to, the plot is very hard hitting but done with respect. I didn't want to put it down. A few heart in mouth moments, tears and at some points. Looking forward to reading more from this author


    10. Heart wrenching This wonderfully written debut novel took me through a wide range of emotions. Any story that can touch me so deeply, is a story worth reading again and again. Can't wait to read more from Annie Hughes!


    11. I have received an ARC copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review. I was not compensated in any way for it and thoughts are 100% mine.My thoughts:This is a first book by Annie and for a début book baby, I have to say it's a beautiful story. Heartbreaking, sad, making you gasp every chapter at how horrific life can be.The story is told from the POV of 16 years old Anna Castillo. The main protagonist of the story. Anna is not your usual teenager, where clothes, boys and par [...]


    12. Breaking Free: Una Familia Segura (Breaking Free #1) by Annie Hughes Anna Rosa Castillo has been through so much in her first 16 years of life but that is all about to change when her biological father turns up at her hospital bedside and wants her to return to America with him and his wife Mel and her son Logan. Anna has to adjust from having nothing to having everything she can desire. That doesn't erase her past from her life!I bought this book not knowing what it was about but because a frie [...]


    13. I read Una Familia Segura in just under 4 hours, let me start off by saying that I haven't actually read a paperback since I got my Kindle for Christmas 3 or 4 years ago. I was sucked in from the first page that had me turning page after page needing to know more about Anna's story, i loved the storyline Annie Hughes has such a lovely writing style that is just effortless to read. I enjoyed every single page, i got chocked up in places and had tears in my ears, i loved all of the characters, i f [...]


    14. Breaking Free is a good story for a YA audience. It deals with some very adult issues and puts a bit of a Cinderella spin, with a new family playing the role of Prince Charming, on finding strength and courage in others. When we meet Anna, she is beaten, physically and emotionally and now being carried off by a father she never knew to a home across an ocean. The story follows the following months in her new life and how she deals with the ghosts of her past.What's good about this story, again i [...]


    15. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Debut author Annie Hughes did an outstanding job with her debut novel. We first meet Anna beyond broken in a hospital. From which she is wicked away to America to live with her biological father and his family. Anna not ever having experiencing a loving, protective family, no doubt struggles with the uncertainty of her future. Ms. Hughes takes us on an emotional journey with Anna, and coming to terms with her horrific past, and learning to l [...]


    16. This is the 2nd time I've read this book. I can honestly say I loved it even more reading it again. Anna shows true strength, & determination to move on from her horrible past. The beach scene between Logan & Anna, & the part where Logan tells Anna why he calls her "Angel" are def my fav scenes! I love Jake & Chloe's characters as her close friends. Logan is the hot brother every sister needs. David & Mel are the kind of parents who show support & are there 100%. "Una Fam [...]


    17. This was such a great read. Annie wrote Anna's story so beautifully you can't help but feel the emotions with the characters. The main character, Anna is just 16 years old and yet has had to deal with some adult events in her life. She is a character you just want to hug and protect. This is why I loved David, Mel and Logan, they came into Anna's life and became her protectors and support system. With Anna's new family came New found strength within herself. I read this book with a book club and [...]


    18. It's easy to forget that really bad things happen to those around us on a regular basis. It's inspirational reading about a victim who continues to push through. 16-year-old Anna has had to face so much in life and yet, she continues to fight to overcome her demons. This story is touching, fun, encouraging, and Annie Hughes gives you excellent details and buildup. Anna's interactions with her new surroundings, friends, and family are fun to read and I love the flirty scenarios. I also extremely [...]


    19. I couldn't put the book down, it was that good! Great storyline! I like the relationships that were developed. I loved the meaning of her "lucky star" tattoo. I can't wait to read her 2nd book. The meaning behind the title is explained perfectly in the book. Anna was definitely given a 2nd chance at having a family who love, protect & care about her.


    20. I loved this book. it was such a great story of survival and a new start. it tore me open at parts and had me laughing at others. this is definitely a great read.



    21. I received a free copy of this book in a prize giveaway and I want to clarify that that fact does NOT influence my opinion. These thoughts are my own.This isn't my usual read, I'll be completely honest. But when I started it, I was immediately catapulted into Anna's world. Right from the get go you have to feel for the poor girl over why she is where she is.Annie captures the character's emotions wonderfully and, normally, when a main character spends so much time in their head, it's usually waf [...]


    22. I had wanted to read this book because the disclaimer intrigued me. I don't like to read romance novels with HEA's. I like books tha have substanance and reality. I was provided this book for an honest review. I was informed in advance that there were grammar & formatting issues so I won't comment on that aspect of the book. Unfortunately I felt like I was reading two separate books with the same characters in each. One an unbelievable HEA and the other a gritty, realistic novel about a girl [...]


    23.

Anna is introduced to her father David for the first time in 16 year's. David has a wife Mel and Mel has a son Logan and can't wait to get Ann [...]

    25. This book was FANTASTIC! I'm not a huge fan of YA books, but when I saw that she was looking for ARC readers and read what it was about, I was intrigued. I am so happy that I took a chance on this book. What an emotional roller coaster! This book is about Anna, a 16 year old girl trying to come to grips with having a family and people that love her after suffering horrific abuse at the hands of her real mother, her grandparents and her stepfather. It shows how she tackles her issues head on and [...]


    26. ***I received a ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review - Reviewer at Book Reviews & Takeovers.***Anna's life has been filled with nothing but the worst the world has to offer. At sixteen years old, she is hospitalized, following a vicious act, when the father she's never known returns to her life.This book follows her heart-wrenching journey through things that should only happen in nightmares. While it is sad and dark in most places, this story also is about redemption. Anna rise [...]


    27. Some books just make writing reviews, simple. Trying to review this book, has been difficult. I can say I LOVED this book, but it would be an understatement. Anna is such an inspiring young woman. She has been threw so much in her life and after a tragic event her life is thrown from the UK to the US with a family she doesn't even know. Is this her Una Familia Segura? Everyone who knows me knows, I hardly every cry or get teary eyed from reading books (I do too much of it in real life). By the e [...]


    28. This is Annie Hughes' first book and it was a winner. The characters were full and complex. they grew as the story went on. Anna woke up in a hospital and a social worker was telling her they had arrested her step father for killing her mother and for attempted murder of her. Then she was told her father was outside. Her father walked in and introduced himself. They make plans to go to Maine in the US. Anne grows as she learns about her family and little by little she starts to trust and tell he [...]
