…And Breathe…I was warned not to read this book until the 2nd one came out because of THE cliffhanger..I didn’t listen! Emma, Emma, Emma I want to pick you out of the book and put you in my pocket and keep you safe!!!

This book is AMAZING and written so well that the emotions are REAL!! Truly emotional, it made me cry big fat tears, it made me shiver, it gave me goosebumps and it made me shout in frustration!!!! I had to read the end 3 times to make sure I hadn’t missed anything and the epilogue…SERIOUSLY??!!

I was so happy towards the end just to have it….well don’t want to spoil anything!! I cannot recommend this book enough and I am literally counting down the days to the next one..I think as of today it’s 79 days away??? Oh and Evan you fab-u-lush boy hurry over there NOW please!!!!! (still sobbing!!!)

Oh and Rebecca Donovan…you too are AMAZING!!!!

I started reading this book and literally could not put it down – I HAD to know how it ended, so I was up until 4am devouring every moment. It was a long book and I’ve read a couple of the deleted scenes and really wouldn’t have minded if it was even longer.

We had a chance to really get to know the characters – minor and major characters – they all worked so well together.

“I love that picture, he admitted softly. I think it’s because I love the girl in that picture.” 

There was a plot about 3/4 in the book that frustrated me (not sure if anyone else felt this, probably just me)- I don’t want to give anything away – but I understand now why the plot and character were in there and now I realise it added to the character of Emma.

I really did feel as if I knew these characters and cared about them.

My heart was pounding at some bits and I really rallied for Emma – sometimes I would get frustrated with her but I understood why she put up with what she did – she was selfless and her relationship with Evan was just wonderful. The interaction between these two was just beautiful.

“In the balance of love and loss, it was love that made me struggle to… Breathe.” 

The ending!!!!!! Say no more!

I am eagerly awaiting the sequel and know it will be another allnighter when it is available.

Rebecca if you’re reading this……hurry and finish that book!!! I can’t stand the wait.

Why 4.5 stars and not 5? Drew!

You really need to read this book!

Synopsis

“No one tried to get involved with me, and I kept to myself. This was the place where everything was supposed to be safe and easy. How could Evan Mathews unravel my constant universe in just one day?”

In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection—pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises, not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth―at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.

One girl’s story of life-changing love, unspeakable cruelty, and her precarious grasp of hope: Reason to Breathe is the first installment of the acclaimed Breathing Series.
