Ten Tiny Breaths - Book Review

Over my long Easter break, I headed to my parents house.  Family gathering, its kind of boring, considering I'm the only child.  Well, I'm forbidden from the kitchen due to the fact that I burn everything.  Cook it on high and get it done.   Quick and done!

My mom reads, just not as much as I do.  She takes care of my dad, so that's pretty much her life.  Anyhow, on her coffee table sat three books; Labor Day, Ten Tiny Breaths, and Love Water Memory.  I read Love Water Memory, but the other two I hadn't.  With my awesome book selecting skills, I grab the one with the coolest cover, Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker and start to read.  I could not put this book down.  I ate with my parents hunted for my Easter basket, filled with books, you'd never understand unless you're an only child.  So don't even try.  I rushed home, feed my cats, and curled up to read.


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.

4.5 Stars
Where to start? The beginning right? That's always good.

Kacey lost her parents in a drunk driving accident. Along with her boyfriend and bestfriend. She was the only one spared. Spared isn't really the right word. More like she was left to live a hollow life, filled with regret on being the sole survivor of the accident. It haunts her day and night, driving her slowly into a darkness she can't escape. 

My Trent - 
Livie and Kacey decide to make their own way in life after an incident with their aunt and uncle. Miami is very different than Michigan. They rent a low budget apartment, make some friends and live their lives. Things are chugging along, until Kacey meets Trent. The darkness recedes a little bit when Trent is around. Making it almost like times forgotten. 

My Kacey - 

Then the truth pours out and Kacey realizes it was all a lie. All of it. Trent isn't who he claims to be, that what he did, he did out of his need to be forgiven for his past sins. Everyone has darkness in them, it claims them all a different way. Trent needed to be forgiven to move on. 

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I normally don't gravitated towards books like this, but I'm so glad I picked this up. I was shocked towards the end of the book, I didn't see that coming and I almost stopped reading, because it pissed me off. But it worked so well. I don't understand it, but I get the why of it. The very end of the book, I was put off at how easily she went back, but I guess that's part of the story, understanding, forgiveness, and togetherness.
