  1. The way it was amazingly writtern and beautifully written quotes and style, to its simple and memorable characters, I could really say that Sam Madison is such a talented and creative writer. I love her book a lot making me raise my voice every time foriegn people compliments her, “Hey! Filipino ‘yan! Hahaha!” Nakaka-proud! Ang galing! She made me fall in love with the characters, especially Seth. I love the he grow up as the story went through and also Kyla ofcourse. I also love how they help each other to move on but hate when Seth leaves. *sobs* But I still love it again and again. And thoug the ending was I think an open-ending, I’m hoping that Seth and Kyla get back together or date for real, get married and have a dozen of cute babies. My gosh, nosebleed na ako. ‘Yun lang. Really, love Sam Madison! I really want to have the Pop Fic version! *Wew* #ProudNoypiHere. -JoeyJMakathangIsip, facebook: https://www.facebook.com/joeyj.makathangisip wattpad: https://www.wattpad.com/user/JoeyJMakathangIsip
    PS: I’m really hoping that Star Cinema will turn this out into a movie. *cross fingers*
    Fav qoute: *ito talaga* “I wonder why it was called falling in love when falling implies collapsing; and collapsing implies breaking.” *Ouch!

  2. I have to admit it was really difficult for me to choose one quote from the whole book. Damn, everything is perfect. Like, every sentence written in the book is speaking in behalf of me. And you know, the feels in each one is just as much.

    So, here’s the winner (ugh, it’s so hard, I love everything really) : “Of what we lost and what we can never recover.” Huhu </3

    I think I deserve to win one book of "The Heartbroken Heartbreaker" from the great Sam Madison because I can't stop obsessing over it up until now. I have reached all my friends and talked them to read this book on Wattpad so I will not be the only one walking in haze because of the feels. And for crying out loud (and I really wanna cry out loud rn because I seriously, with all passion and strong desire want, need and love this book) my college graduation is on May 11!! Woohoo!! THH is the 'most perfect and bestest of the best' graduation gift I will ever have. Yeah, that's hyperbole. I cant think of any more words to describe how this book will complete my life. Please please, consider choosing me for one of your books. Best graduation gift ever! (And also, I'm not far from Manila, just 1-2 hours away hekhek)

  3. I’ll start saying that your book changed my life, your writing is one of the best I’ve ever seen and the way the story was constructed got me ripped right from the start.
    Now that been said, it looks like it should be hard to choose only one quote, since your book is so amazing. But for me, it wasn’t. The quote I chose it’s one that I’ll never forget, because since I read it, it took a piece of my heart, more than I can explain.
    My favorite quote is the part when Kyla writes the poem that starts with Do you remember, Romeo?
    Reading that was like feel a heart beating in my hands, it was true, harsh and real. Each word was in the exactly place it should be, every single word took me to into Kyla and showed me how she saw and felt things in a way that I’ve never did with any other character; it was like seeing the world through her lenses. You took one of the most iconic characters and made me see your own characters in them. At the same time, I could see and think about Romeo and Juliet, but also Kyla and Seth.
    The thing is, the poem is not only good in what it says, but it’s also perfectly written. The words just complement each other, like a plot of a carpet, in each every single line has its own role, in a way that in the end, you have a magnificent piece of art.
    I just love the way you describe how Romeo felt, and how it was when she walked away, and how hard it is to forget her, but my eyes just fill with tears every time I read this:
    But do you remember, Romeo?
    There are millions of Juliets out there,
    There are others who can show you,
    That tomorrow’s promises remain to be more beautiful than yesterday’s shadows.
    I really, really wish I could have a copy of your book. It is one of my favorites books ever, and I’m not talking only about Wattpad books, but every single one I’ve read. It would be a treasure to have such a precious thing with me. I love your writing and all of your stories. You’re a wonderful author and see things in a way that only a few do. And I thank you for sharing your words with all of us.
    And, even if I don’t get a copy, it’s enough for me to know that you now have an idea of how I felt when your words changed my life ((: Thank you.

  5. “The sad thing was that Seth and I weren’t even fireworks; just dying embers, burning out into nothing but fading flickers, until there was nothing but darkness.”

    This is my favorite line because it really captures the scene so well! When Seth and Kyla broke up, it really seemed as if they were dying embers. From being fireworks while they were fake dating, with all the sparks that flew which led to them to actually fall each other, to becoming dying embers when they realized they couldn’t be together. The Heartbroken Heartbreaker was beautifully written and I’m glad I came across your book!

    I hope to win a copy of THH because, well, it’s an astounding book and I would really loved to have a printed copy of it. Each chapter was breathtaking and I couldn’t put down my phone until I knew how it ended! And I didn’t. I really read the whole thing in one sitting. #bookwormandproud HAHA! So yeah, I’d love to add this book to my collection of books.

    This is from chapter 9 (I think?)

    Simple words yet it is hard for the person whose really depends on their mothers/ fathers at all.
    I’m really proud of Kyla because of this. Bravery makes one heart strong. Tho, sometimes we think that we want to be interact, enjoy, bond with in our own house.

    The physical book? Why I want it? To see the change if I can be Kyla someday. Yeah. Impossible can be possible to everyone people! HAHAHA!

  8. This might be the hardest decision I’ve ever made so this maybe really long but I hope you take your time and read this.

    My really emotional rant (not really lol), I’ve never felt so lucky to be a Filipino considering that your giveaway only offers to those in the Philippines so yas!

    Firstly congratulations on THH for being published! To say I’m really proud would be an understatement. Secondly, you’re also a Filipino! The first time I’ve heard that you are a Filipino was last year and I went ballistic! Thirdly, we have the same name ( mine’s Samantha but meh still the same couldn’t care less lol ) Fourthly, the task to pick out our fave quote from the book was really hard. So to make things easy I chose a random chapter and reread it. I chose chapter 33 (i don’t really have a reason why I chose this chap) and the quote I picked is one that I strongly relate to (not really lol) it is “FEELINGS WERE CHANGING AND THINGS WERE SHIFTING , PUTTING EVERYTHING THAT HAD HAPPENED BETWEEN US UNDER A SPECTRUM OF NEW COLORS.” I picked this because it was professionally written and it hit me right in the feels like damn! You deserve an Oscar for that lol (you really do). Fifthly, Everybody deserves to win a copy of a really amazing book of yours but for me I think I deserve it because, well, as I said it’s amazing and really professionally written and I am not willing to pass down an opportunity to win a FREE and SIGNED copy of such a great book. It is also one of my favorite books on Wattpad (it’s actually my favorite btw) so to be able to win a printed copy of it will make me beyond happy. Plus, I’ve never had a published copy of a Wattpad book ever, So if I win it would be my first one. And to have a copy of THH is one of my goals ever since you announced that it will published. I already tweeted about the giveaway to increase my poor chances of winning. (considering that a lot will join the giveaway but i really hope I win tho)

    Even though I won’t win the giveaway i’d still get a copy of your book ( I need to save money first tho lol). I won’t be making this any longer so if you ever choose this comment, THANK YOU in advance. But if not, it’s okay. And please consider my request on you arranging a meetup here in Manila because I would love to meet you, talk to you and take photo with you. Ok, that’s all, sorry if it’s really long I am just really excited to say the least.

  9. “Now I understand that you never really stop missing someone,even long after you’ve moved on. You simply get used to the fact that you are missing them, changing the way you deal with their absence.” Chapter 43

    This is the best I’ve read it’s the reality everybody feels this way after seeing an ex may it be a best friend or a boyfriend. I think I deserve to win this giveaway contest because I’m attached to this book. This the first book I read that isn’t giving us false hopes, this book shows us what reality is. I for one have been living in all these fantasies that you will have a happy ending or a happily ever after but after reading this book realization hit me that there is no such thing even after you get together with the one you love, you’ll still be encountering a lotof problems on the way and this book made me realize how life is really hard and how cancer(in any form) can separate you from your loved ones, it kills you slowly inside an you have to make a lot of sacrifices even if it hurts you even more.

  10. Hi! This is my favorite quote/scene (much like a scene haha)

    “You do know” He said
    “That deep inside, Squidward actually loves Spongebob, right?”
    “Does Spongebob know that?”
    “Of course”

    Gahhhh! I literally saved it in my phone and whenever I scroll on my photos, I read it again and just do things that you cant imagine. When I first laid eyes on the words of the story, I literally felt nothing but sadness, Kyla was really down and the best way I can describe my feeling is it’s like a vast color BLACK. But as the story goes on, I laugh,cry or shout (bc Im angry or any of those shit) . BUT THIS? KINIKILIG AKO HAHA.

    I deserve to win a copy, first reason being I LOVE THH! Second, I would want to know if it’s slightly changed or is it really the same on Wattpad and I want to hold it in my hands and be like “KYLA WON LIFE BITCHES” okay sorry sorry haha.

  11. To say that this book is awesome is the understatement of the century, Haha. Well, first of all I wanted you to know that my comment won’t be as long compared to the others. Second, I have to say that this book is really amazing like how did you come up in this story line? because when I read the snippet for the story, I somehow thought that it would be just like any teen flicks where the male and the female lead will be together in the end but you somehow proved to me that I’m not right. Third, I’m no good when it comes to memorizing quotes but this one sticks to my brain like a gum “aren’t you quite the heart breaker?” then it was followed with a quote “that sweetheart, is the understatement of the century” haha, I have to admit that was the best comeback I’ve read when the word “understatement” ws wsbeing included in the story line. Fourth, I really love the end chapter because it hangs you in a way you’re satisfied in the story like if it happens to have a sequel you can have a hunch that they will meet again giving a much complicated twist if Sam will be included in the picture. Fifth, I can say more things that I like about this story but that would contradict to what I’ve said in the first, Hahaha. I’d be so lucky to win this competition thing but just to inform you I meant everything I’ve said in this comment. More power to your writing career. Go pinoy! itaas ang bandila haha 😍😂

  12. My favorite quote from the book would have to be: “Everyone’s a writer. Your whole life is a story. The choices you make define what kind of story it is.”

    I don’t think I SHOULD win… but I would very much like to. The fact that so many people can relate to this book and you can fall in love with the storyline and characters no matter how many times you read it, it’s just beautiful. This totally deserves to be a well-known book around the world. I’d like to win this and I think I could because this book really somehow taught me things. We all know love doesn’t work out the way we want it to, but when we are given the chance with it, we’re lucky enough we have it and we need to grasp onto it as long as it’s there. The elements in the story, whether happy and funny or sad and/or sappy scenes, it just made such a perfect piece. I loved this book, which I never thought I would and was kinda holding back on reading it. But oh boy, when I read it, I regretted that immediately.
    I think this is one of the books that I’ve treasured so much, and to be given a chance to win a copy, is just flabbergasting and I knew I just had to make an entry.
    Even if I don’t win one, I’m just really glad I read it. Thanks for such a wonderful book.

    I don’t actually think I SHOULD win this, but I honestly, wholeheartedly want to.
    THH is one of my favorite books out of ALL the books I’ve read in my life so far and I’ve read a LOT. This book taught me so much about life and I somehow learned from it. It shows how love can be really hard, but when you’re given the chance to have it, you’re really lucky. The protagonist, Kyla has a sadly disappointing life, but you can see the beauty in it.
    I think the elements of the story, whether happy and funny, sad and sappy, the storyline was so beautifully put together, that it shows professionalism and deserves to be known all around the world.
    Although I may not win this book, one of my faves of all time, I’m glad I was given the chance to.
    I loved the book so much, I was so ecstatic and immediately typed my comment in and it got erased (so I did it again, not as beautiful) but I was willing to do it again just to get a book. But it isn’t just any book, it means a lot to me, and I’d love to get it for free. In the beginning, I didn’t really want to read the book, because I don’t usually read stuff like it, but I regretted it immediately as I scrolled on with my eyes glued onto my phone screen for hours. This story is a tear-jerker and I loved that, I loved that it wasn’t all comedy and romance. I love the book and that concludes my answer. It doesn’t exactly show why I SHOULD be winning, but I didn’t know how to say that, for everyone who loves this book as much as I do, also want to win.
    all of these words just flowed out of me, please forgive me ^.^

    The Heartbroken Heartbreaker. The title comes in mind as a story probably about someone who’s gone through a bad break-up so they break hearts to satisfy that. But this is a different story. And I never expected it to be. Usually, I never read things like this, but I was glad to, and it changed a lot of things for me. It changed my perspective of life and made my view love life a little clearer. We may have fallen in love and got brokenhearted, but we’re lucky enough to find someone who could put you back together. I hear that a lot in movies, but in this book, it was my favorite version. I like how underneath it all, it’s a totally different story. The book had a good pacing and the progressing was beautiful. The ending was not my definition of perfect, but because of how subtle the ending was, how it shows that love takes time, it can’t just always happen… that’s what made me love this book.
    I read a lot of chapters day by day, and I was so willing to see what was at the back, at the end, I even stayed up reading it.
    My favorite quote… there were a lot, because this book was so beautifully written, I don’t know how to choose. (But eventually did, anyway)

    It’s actually a scene.

    “You belong in a mental hospital.”
    “Ah, but you’d go crazy from missing me so much that you’ll eventually end up there too.”

    It was cute and sappy. I don’t usually like sappy, but I now know I do.

    Why should I win? Simply because of the way this book acted on my life and my love for it. Thanks for the opportunity to win your book for free, I’m sorry if I gave a lot to read. Oh and I honestly cried so much reading the book I never knew I could cry by just reading.

    I want to win because just by reading the story through the screen of my phone makes me feel so much emotions and it makes me wonder how i would feel when I could physically hold a copy that I could clutch to my chest while I cry my heart out. There is love in your words that sounds similar to that of a beating heart. That’s THH for me, I read your words and my chest expands with hands growing out of my veins,these hands being hungry for words they cannot write themselves. Give me a pen that all of the great poets and writers have held but I still would not have the power to move anyone as you have moved me.

  19. “Some write to exist in non-existence.” 25th chapter.

    Personally, I’m a writer myself and this quote is by far the most beautiful thing I have ever encountered. I can’t think of anything that would better describe writing than this one.

    I don’t know though if I deserve winning or not, honestly. ahaha. But, I am deeply infatuated with this book. SO MUCH. I first read this when the book cover was Kyla(?) wearing a pink shirt and a black or grey skirt (I think the outfit is the reason why I even decided to read it) and your profile picture was a redhead smiling. I even thought it was Mia in TPOCE/Chance Encounters. This book served a great role in my life, no joke. Kyla was the reason why I decided to pursue writing. The previously said quote is involved with the role in my life too. Also, the romance is very realistic, not at all cliché and that’s also one of the reasons why I fell in love with this book. The characters are so raw, it’s not a typical high school story full of stereotypes, it’s real. Seth is well-known in school but not the “most popular notorious asshole” stereotype. Their stories at home also played a major role and it’s not always romance romance romance, it’s life life life rather. They fixed each other and that’s the most important part. They didn’t necessarily need to get together in the end just because they fell in love. But the one part that got me the most was the fact that they ended with a greeting instead of a goodbye. The ending signified a new beginning for both of them. That last scene was everything and nothing all at once. It had closure, but in the simplest way possible. Some people might think it didn’t because it was an open ending and you were left thinking, “What happens now?” but the reason why they needed each other is to help them grow. That’s what they needed, they didn’t need to be together. Although, they can be but you’ll never know. Sam leaves us a knot halfway tied but not altogether. I am rambling about the book instead of saying why I deserve to win ahahaha but eh, it’s all your decision, Sam. I could win, I could not but hopefully though despite this somewhat irrelevant paragraph.

  20. Hello Sam!
    Honesty choosing one quote? How could I even make such a decision when the entire book was a miracle in itself.
    But the quote that seems to be stuck in my thoughts is from Kyla’s speech during Cedric’s funeral because it made me weep like a baby.
    “Once we watched a movie that revolved around the concept of miracles. It said that each and every one of us were destined for something. And this something was to be another person’s miracle”
    “At one point of time, I had hoped to be his miracle, to be that someone who could find a way to heal him. In the end it was him, who became my miracle.”
    The quote reminds me about how we impact each other’s lives and how our every small action could change someone’s else’s life. It also reminds me how we shouldn’t judge people on what seems on the outside. All of us hated Cedric in the beginning for ditching Kyla for no apparent reason until we realized what the truth was and it broke our hearts. Correction, not broke our hearts but ripped them off our chest.
    And the part where Kyla says, “In the end it was him, who became my miracle” confirms his death and rips us off the loose dangling thread of hope that Cedric would finally live after so many struggles.
    We have all cried, laughed and rejoiced with the wonderful journey the book has carried us through. The struggles of the two teens in love, where love a word to big to commit to but the feelings so indescribable.
    And the book is hshsuidfui, sorry I have too many feelings.
    So why I deserve a copy of the book? Honestly I haven’t done anything special, but it would mean the world to me if I get one because the book means so much to me. I have gone on and on about how amazing it is and practically chewed their ears telling them how amazing the book is and how down to earth the author is. You have really inspired me and I look up to you.
    When I first stumbled upon the book I had not expected it to be this way. I had been binge writing for days and was tired and scared about writing more, so I decided to take a break from writing and do something that I am in love with, reading.
    I picked a random complete book from my library and began to read it, believing the story would pick up after few chapters and the amazing rating on humor told me, it would be a good laugh. But the story was so much more than that. It wasn’t just about a girl who decided to take revenge with her ex-boyfriend but it was a story about loss, desperation, loneliness and absence.
    I had an upcoming exam and this was supposed to be an easy read, but it hadn’t just enraptured me, it had hooked me to my seat only letting me breathe once it was all over. And when I finished the last chapter, I knew this was going to be a book I was going to remember.
    So I really hope I do win a copy, because my mom won’t buy me anymore after I literally bought a dozen books for my birthday.

  21. I can’t really choose one scene as a favorite, I mean, I love the whole book! The whole book’s my fave! But I just let my decision depend on what made me cry hard. Literally! So I chose the ending of Chapter 33, after Seth and Kyla’s fight, wherein Kyla asked “Now what?” Seth then replied “I think this is a goodbye, Evans.” And I kinda got a feeling that Kyla actually was trying to turn things back to normal when she said. “I think… this is see you later, Everett.” And that her hope was crushed when he answered, “We both know that’s a lie.” And I was actually crying over and over again everytime I reread that part. Because I always reread the book and I never get tired of it.

    I actually don’t know the reason as of I deserve to be one of the winners, because literally everyone who loved your book would love to be one, even internationally. Everyone who loves THH as much as me, would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win a free copy of THH. It inspires me to actually continue my stories. Because I write drafts, or if I publish a Prologue, it would be only until Chapter 1-3. But THIS book, THH, has inspired me to continue my books. Because you actually worked hard to finish the story and I loved the way it went! The book itself represents the quote, “Maybe it’s not about happy endings, maybe it’s about the story.” And plus, this book is a total tearjerker! Every single day of those days you haven’t completed the book yet, I was always checking WattPad to see if you updated already, and when it was complete, I reread it, again and again! I love this book and I would love it if I would be one of the winners because I could read it in a lifetime! I would cry and cry until i’m numb enough to be hurt. I always put myself as Kyla so I can actually feel what she was feeling. Everytime there’s a tearjerker scene, I would throw my phone across the room, then I pick it up and read it, then I would throw it again, sobbing. I wish I would have the chance to win since I love the story so much! And I would do ANYTHING to win! I love the book and everything single detail of it. From the first time I saw it, till your last update. I wish you a happy Thursday! Thank you for inspiring me and everything! The story was worth it for my tears! Thank you again!

  23. “Writing served different purposes for everyone. Some write to make something ugly beautiful, some write to leave a part of themselves to be remembered, some write to give words soul and meaning, and some write to exist in non-existence.”

    I want to win because reading THH through a screen alone brought me waves and waves of emotions, and it makes me wonder how it would feel to physically have a copy in my hands that I can clutch to my chest when things in the story get rough, something that would have the burden of catching my tears as I read the heartwarming parts. There is love in your words that sounds similar to that of a beating heart when I read it. That’s THH for me, I read your words and I feel my chest expand and then comes hands that are hungry for words that they cannot write themselves, aching to scroll to the next page. Give me a pen that all of the great writers have held but I still would never have the power to move anyone as you have moved me.

    And although, I’d definitely pay for such wonderful art, I am only a (rather broke) student and I can not let the opportunity of getting a free copy pass haha. Much love to you! ❤

    “I learn to live by and I was fine with that.”

    Sobrang humanga ako sa bravery and positiveness ni Kyla and sana someday mahawa ako dun sa personality niya kasi kahit na wala siyang tatay eh kinaya niya lahat.

    Yung book naman po. I’m really hoping to win this one kasi hindi rin naman kami ganun ka rich to afford one and pasukan na rin po kasi so yun.. priorities po. Hahaha. And to have this book na may signaature niyo pa po and MEET UP with you.. OMG. Hindi ko maisip na makikilala kita in person.

  25. So THH has given me such a wonderful time, since I like imaging myself as the characters, and I really like the fact that it didn’t end in a totally clichè way like some books do, where the guy and the girl get together at the end. I just recently read it AGAIN and although I already knew what was going to happen, (like Cedric dying and Kyla falling in love with Seth) it still gave me the feels and the yearn to find out what happens next. So when I found out about the extra chapters in ‘La Vie en Rose’ I was SO elated that I added it to my library. Not that it was bad or anything!

    Personally, I kind of connect to how the characters act, Kyla’s sassiness, yet shy at times, Seth’s quick anger at things, Alyssa’s overly funny death threats, Cedric’s love for apples, Hail’s insomianess when her best friend left her at the time she needed her most (though it barely connects to me 😊) Jusin’s energeticness, Warren’s anxiety, but for some reason I can’t seem to connect with Lily and Dan though…

    I couldn’t stop laughing at the PMSing foot part, I mean, seriously? But the size if the cut kind of made me go 😵 because I’ve cut my toe once with glass and it hurt ALOT so I can’t imagine how painful it was for Seth. Oh, well.

    Though I’d have to say my favourite partS was when they first kissed and Seth was all “Because you didn’t open your eyes to see if Cedric was was looking.” Also the part where Kyla found Seth when he ‘ran away’ because his parents should know him more and Seth didn’t even think Kyla would search for him, due to their relationship being ‘fake’.

    But let’s not forget my next favorite ship who’s ship name I don’t know. AlyssaxWarren. I STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THEM BEFORE WHY ALDAKHALVSKABDBSLA

    So yeah, I also like the title which basically states that the heartbreaker got a taste of their own medicine. *insert nonexistent fist pump emoji.*

    If I got the chance to get the actial tangible book or even meet one of my favorite authors, I will die. Not literally. You know the feeling when your watching Dolce Amore and you know what’s going to happen next but, oh! Will you look at that. A commercial seems to have interrupted one of my favorite shows! Why?!?!

    Sorry, kinda fangirled their a little ☺️ #teamserenaxtenten Lmao what

    Anyway, yeah that’s it. Just keep calm and feel the potato vibes come from a weird potato. 😅

  26. Hey! I’m not really good at this(well this is my first time doing this) but I’m telling you this…
    Your book is great.I love your quotes specially where Seth tells Kyla that Moving on is not about forgetting it is about remembering the memories without hurting (sorry?I somewhat paraphrase it).I can’t really relate it about lovelife co’z I don’t have one but I can relate it to my situations.Like where I joined a writing contest like Kyla but mine’s about Journalism and yeah I lost.

    Thank you for giving bitth to Kyla(not literally).I learn more things in writings (You can create a wonderful novels,poems,articles,etc if you use your feelinga in writing it).

    My favorite part is where Seth is gone missing.I love it when Kyla knows a lot about Seth (well she’s the one who found him…She knows where Seth would go if he is upset about his family).I love it how Seth reacts when Kyla founds him.In short I love how those two know about each other.

    So the thing is I love this book.First,it is written awesomely.Second,It is realistic.Third,It inspires like how Cedric fought his Cancer(I don’t have that worse sickness but I have this kind of thing where the doctors don’t know how to cure it…three years of enduring it tsk nevermind but I will still fight this one).Lastly,I love it when Kyla is writing (the Flicker and Do You Remember,Romeo? are stuck in my head specially Romeo …and my favorite part in that poem is where Kyla wrote that there are lots of Juliet.

    Seth is a playboy(in the past) means there are lot of girls willing to be his.Lastly, My second favorite scene is where Kyla reads her father a book it made me cry (and hey Seth is so softy in that part)
    So…I really love you for creating Kyla and creating “The Heartbroken and Heartbreaker”(The Squidward and Spongebob)

    Yeah that’s all in advance thanks for reading my err speech?lol.

  27. My favorites quote from the book is “I wonder why it’s called falling wjhen falling implies collapsing and collapsing implies breaking”. I love tbis quote coz every emotion Kyla has at that moment is being poured into that sentence. When I read that line, it struck something in me that made me realize that something like this really happens in reality.

    My favorite scene from the story is when Kyla called Seth in the middle of the night ( 1 am to be exact) and asked her what’s the problem, why’d she called. She said sorry for waking him up and made him go back to sleep but then Seth is on way to her. They went to a beach. She’s surprised how Seth made every effort. They talked and in the end of the day she realized that she’s falling for him.

    I think I deserve a copy because this story is everything to me. It thought me to forgive and start life again and just dont give up. It thought me that we should not judge based on what we see and hear. And proves the phrase: love is patient. This book is not just any other book. This is the book where I shed plenty of tears, cracked wide smiles and gives me the inspiration to do better on my own works and be a better writter. This book is literally my life. I need this.

  28. The Heartbroken Heartbreaker had been one of the first books I read in wattpad, thus urging me to be more interested in the site. The book not only made me reflect on the characters, especially Kyla, but also made me reflect on myself and on real-life situations.

    For months of reading and waiting for updates on THH, I can see myself being eager and giddy for more of the story of Kyla, Seth, and Cedric. When the story ended, the impact of the life lessons that the book taught me and the valuable words that the characters had said never left my head and my heart.

    So far, my favorite quote was when Kyla spoke at Cedric’s funeral. Her words, I quote, had been “At one point in time, I had hoped to be his miracle, to be that someone who could find a way to heal him. In the end, it was him who had become my miracle.”

    The words were beautifully put together and it focuses on the beautiful relationship of theirs. Losing a sister to cancer had been very hard for me, and this scene was very emotional and spoke to me touchingly.

    So dear Sam, I am very thankful because you wrote this godsend book. Though I’ve read the book and it is available on wattpad, having a physical copy of THH would mean a lot because the characters touched my life and holding the book in my hands, especially coming from the author, is like having to meet these characters in real life too, and is a privilege I would be lucky to have.

    You have touched my life and helped me a lot. Though many would say I’m still in my young years, I would like for them and you to know, that no matter the age, THH will surely have anyone wanting to indulge in the book and love every word of it.

    I hope I really win this giveaway because The Heartbroken Heartbreaker made me laugh, cry, scream, frustrated, confused, excited, but most of all: touched.

    As an aspiring writer, THH is a literary masterpiece and having a copy of it to love it even more would be amazing.

    Thank you so much, or as we say in Filipino, maraming salamat!

    All the love,

    “It was said there that each and everyone of us were destined for something was to be another person’s miracle.”
    I loved how this quote is so optimistic and so heartwarming. It expresses the value of life and gives me a reason to move forward and live life.

    I love the book and I’d love to have a copy and read more of it. I want to see it’s complete version from Pop Fiction.

  30. Hellooooo po Ate Sam!
    Okay. Before I start my “speech” on how worthy I am to have a copy of your story, I would like you to know po that I’m beyond exhilarated to join this contest to win a book because this will be my first time to do so! And never in my life have I ever thought of me exerting so much effort to win a book but I’m absolutely obssessed of it just as much an addict is obssessed of marijuana (I know it’s kind of a ridiculous comparison but I just want you to know that I’m really obssessed of THH!)

    In spite of the internal battle I had just to pick a quote, I’m still able to pick one! (YAY to me) Having a hard time picking one is an understatement because your entire story is like a LITERALLY LONG VERSION OF A ‘HUGOT LINE’. So I picked a line from it that I think pretty sums up the whole story.

    “Because loving you is worth losing you.”

    Seven words. One sentence.
    I repeat. Seven words. One sentence.
    Those were BEYOND enough to make my heart turn into freaking Antarctica, be frozen, before being hit by a 100000-kilo sledgehammer, REPEATEDLY. I really do not know up until now what makes me cry more- the fact that Kyla will really lose Seth or the fact that it made me feel small while thinking that I’m not as strong as Kyla to willingly lose someone I have loved more than my own life. Aside from this, I must say that this line made me, or all of your readers rather, think deeply if we have someone special in our lives that we are willing to let go because we love them, no matter how fragile and shattered our hearts might be afterwards. And with only this single line, the way I view the concept of love changed. As cliche as it sounds, yes, it is honestly true. It made me realize that most of us are drunk of the typical idea of love wherein the prince always saves the princess and they live happily ever after.

    ‘WELL, WELCOME TO THE REALITY’
    That’s what your book literally screams. Reading it is like hitting my head on the wall before finally realizing the real nature of love wherein love is not all about how happy you are, how romantic your relationship is, or how badly it forever scarced your heart. It is all about how far you would go in the name of love. It is about how hard, how long, you were able to hold on to that love. It is all about fighting, and finally letting go when you have to. And THANK YOU SO MUCH PO for making me realize it.

    Though I think I’m not as deserving as the other people out there who also commented, I still hope, like really really hope, that you will still consider me to have one of the giveaways because CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO DIE, that if ever I won, I will REALLY take care of it like my own baby and never let anyone harm my precious baby. Also, as I’ve said, this is my first time to join a contest to win something and I would grab any chance I have just to own one. Even though I even did scratchworks first of my comment, just to have it not posted like three times because of some error, I still wrote one just to have a copy because I have never been able to buy a book in a store, unless it is a requirement in school, because my parents won’t give me money and I can’t afford one because I only have low allowance. That’s why I only read on Wattpad. Soooo having a copy of the book from the author that has always inspired me to write my own pieces at an age of 14 will make me want to die instantly and read it in heaven.
    PLEASE PLEASE consider me ate huhu.

    P.S. Can I send you some of the poems inspired by you and your story that I was able to write and tell me your comment about it? You would be the first one to read them and I will be BEYOND ECSTATIC, EXHILIRATED, JOYFUL AND OTHER SYNONYMS OF HAPPY if you would agree. Thaaaaank you for the chance ate Sam!

  32. THH entry

    Chapter thirteen.

    Before I got the chance to look up to Seth he already pulled me into a one armed hug.

    “Are you crying?” Ky said

    “No!” Seth said.

    “You’re CRYING!”

    “Shut Up!”

    ——-

    This is the scene after Kyla told Seth that she used to read her father book when her dad can no longer read and just wanted to turned the TV on which in my opinion means that her dad gave up on doing what he love and just stick on what he can do. And Kyla as being the loving daughter that she is as an 8 yr old kid she already understood that no one should be deprived to do what they love on doing it tug my heart big time cause I personally did not got the privilege to that to my dad he was stolen from me by cardiac arrest and I guess no one was prepared for the worst. I know this is not a special scene to anyone or a major scene at most but I felt envious to Kyla that she got someone who actually understand s her and the pain that she going through. Losing someone is not the end of it but the memories that follows. The idea of not being able to see them again, hug them, talk to them, or even just smell them. How I wished that someday someone whould actually asked me if I was really okay like what Seth is doing to Kyla. Just by one look they will understand.

    Why should I win?
    Well actually ma’am everybody deserve to win. So I guess if Im lucky you will like my favorite part of your book. And give me a signed copy hahahhaha.

I am someone who still prefer to have an actual book rather than a softcopy of it, spending most of my allowance on them ,though I dont really have much ,so it disheartens me to when I cant buy the books I like.

    So you pry your fingers apart.” -Kyla; The Heartbroken Heartbreaker

    Soooo: I saw all the comments and I was like “No. I absolutely have no chance of winning this. They are all so good. Oh well :-(” but I am so happy if you ever get the chance to read AND notice this.
    I’m on this metaphorical edge of a cliff with only a hand at the very end to keep me from falling. Let’s say that if, hypothetically speaking, I fall, an ocean with rapid and enormous waves will consume me. I was never afraid of heights or the ocean or drowning, that was the difference. I was afraid of what’s waiting if I fall, I am afraid of what’s waiting for me on the other side. That’s why I never seem to have the courage enough to let go (or in a more artistic kinda way of saying it, pry my fingers apart). I was always stuck in between the what ifs rather than of what could bes.
    Throughout reading your story, my perspective changed a lot, I am now ready to be brave enough to dive into the deepest part without knowing what lies beneath. I am ready to take the leap to the other side. Society is wrong when they tell people that letting go is cowardice, when in fact, it is bravery. No one, I think, will be strong enough to let go, but the wise ones. Few people are fortunate enough to be strong and wise. I praise you for being one and making me/us realize that we can be. Your story changed a lot of lives. Thank you for making me understand. Thank you so much for letting me know that I am not alone in the battles I am fighting through. I don’t know how to be “deserving enough” to win a free copy of your book. But if I do, (which I pray hard for because it will be from the very author of it and it will make me very happy to be sharing it to others and all) I will be (not that I already am) encouraging my friends to buy or read it too because maybe, just maybe, they will also feel the same way I did— I felt a lot more strong and courageous, all thanks to you and your characters and Kyla’s inspiring poems. I hope you know that you inspired me to write. Even if I don’t win or get picked here/drawn from the raffle, I’ll be forever grateful of having been shared this “moving” story. We, Filipinos, are really something and that is what I’m very proud of.

  35. this is exciting!!this book has been in my archive, due to space reasons, for so long, though its in my library now, cuz even though i finished reading it i really honestly liked it. fav quote since it really made me laugh and since its soooo accurate and true is: “it’s like-like your foot is on its fucking period. on the second day!” loved the comparison. i have a lot of fav parts but they are just tooo many to mention. i would honestly love a copy, who wouldn’t? it’s just-ugh-suppressing fan girl side-lovely!!and not that cliche, especially the ending, which i loved. i sooo would love a copy of it. when you’re living atop a plateau and is quite far from the city, nothing much happens and this has been the source of my excitement. its just amazing that you learn that you’re living in the same country,you are right?, as the author of one of your fav stories. ❤ ❤

  36. “Everyone gets hurt. Even if you’re older now, even if you know better, even if you understand, you can’t keep yourself from hurting, and that okay.”

    Cant really pick on scene/quote because the whole book is Super Awesome!! Its like the best book in the century in ny opinion of course, this book has made me Laugh, Cry, And make me feel reassured because sobraaaa! Ako maka relate kay Kyla super!! hahha I remember When it was taking you sooooo super long to update it was like hell and back waiting hahahaha because im very impatient as you can see🙈

    Reading THH was honestly the best feeling i could have when i was reading a book, because if you read THH you cant help but feel what the character is feeling too, even if you’re totally fine now but Kyla is heart broken you cant help but feel heartbroken too and thats the power of books! to transport you in a different dimension wih out even leaving where ever you are reading!

    I kind of really effing love Seth so much😂! He is one of the best characters i have ever encountered (if only he was real😢 the struggle is REAL!) in all the past books which i have read (which is a LOT!) From the time where Seth was helping Kyla over her heartbreak even though he wasnt even fully repaired yet but who knew that he was heartbroken too(honestly everone knew) honestly i think seth had me at “is this seat taken?” And i could relate to him that if he was missing and if someone cane i would like swoooooon becausw it reminds me that someonw actually cared for me that im not alone in this world and i shouldnt just block people out(but i still do it) and plus his fav is fro yo’s!😂

    But on the other hand i could relate to kyla as well being shy and sassy, and the typical oblivious and naive girls she is which frustrates the hell out of me (👉👈 i was this close to throwing my phone)

    And the most Hilarious Parts In the whole entire Book was!
    *drum roll*

    The PMS’ing Foot!😂😂😂
    That seriously made me ROFL like seriously not even joking!

    So in a more serious note this book is like a book sent from freaking heaven🍕! It has made me cry and laugh mostly cry but the most important thing is it had made me learn more things and i am forever grateful for that sam😇.

    So what else?? Oh yeah the Thinga-majig

    So i think i deserve a copy of THH irl like touchy-feely because i have been there since the day it got first published although i couldnt comment or vote i did share them to my friends and the reason i couldnt comment or vote was i had limited wifi and i rarely use wifi so yeah if i do get a chance to win holy shit i would be the luckiest girl in the whole universe i would literally faint, and plus i would really like to see it and read it like not through electronics and read it in real paper!

  37. “Sometimes feelings aren’t enough to bury the past and all the shit that happened now and then” -Seth (Chapter 19)

    Hi Ate Sam! I was so happy that you replied on one of my comments on wattpad and you asked me to join your contest. Well.. here I am!

    I am not sure that I could win the contest since there are so many comments but I still tried though. The qoute that I chose, it is really my fav one. It well reflects my feelings a little bit and those who still hasn’t moved on from the past.

    A part of me really wants to win your giveaway contest because I want to show my parents that I can win a book not buy one just for now to prove them that I can get one without thier help. Even this is such a short comment I really really hope I can win.

    Thank you for your time! Congrats on your book.
