Book Review: Ten Tiny Breaths

I've been a bit of a reading machine lately. Having my Kindle when I go to the gym has made my workouts go by faster, and kept me on the reading train.

This week I finished my recent read: Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Here's Amazon's summary:
Kacey Cleary’s whole life imploded four years ago in a drunk-driving accident. Now she’s working hard to bury the pieces left behind—all but one. Her little sister, Livie. Kacey can swallow the constant disapproval from her born-again aunt Darla over her self-destructive lifestyle; she can stop herself from going kick-boxer crazy on Uncle Raymond when he loses the girls’ college funds at a blackjack table. She just needs to keep it together until Livie is no longer a minor, and then they can get the hell out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed next to Livie one night, Kacey decides it’s time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast, Kacey and Livie start their new lives in a Miami apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a stage name perfectly matched to her chosen “profession.” But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle all of them. What she can’t handle is Trent Emerson in apartment 1D. Kacey doesn’t want to feel. She doesn’t. It’s safer that way. For everyone. But sexy Trent finds a way into her numb heart, reigniting her ability to love again. She starts to believe that maybe she can leave the past where it belongs and start over. Maybe she’s not beyond repair. But Kacey isn’t the only one who’s broken. Seemingly perfect Trent has an unforgiveable past of his own; one that, when discovered, will shatter Kacey’s newly constructed life and send her back into suffocating darkness.

This book was a quick read for me. I found it pretty easy to read, and I wanted to find out about Kacey's past, and see the relationships in her life develop. I did kind of guess where the book was going, but that didn't ruin it for me. 
Parts of the book I wasn't sure how much I believed Kacey's character, until later on in the book, when things from Kacey's past started to make more sense to me. Overall, I liked the book.
If you're looking for a light read about a troubled past, with some romance, this is a good one for you.  It's definitely a good pool-side read.

  3. I read a book by K.A. Tucker, about a year or so ago, before she seemed to get really big. I really enjoyed it, and since then have been wanting to read more by her. This has been on my to-read for a while now, so hopefully I'm able to get to it soon!

  4. I have this on my to-read list, but haven't really heard much about it :) But I like hearing it's a quick read - that is super appealing to me!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
