Summary: Four years ago Kacey Cleary’s life imploded when her car was hit by a drunk driver, killing her parents, boyfriend, and best friend. Still haunted by memories of being trapped inside, holding her boyfriend’s lifeless hand and listening to her mother take her last breath, Kacey wants to leave her past behind. Armed with two bus tickets, twenty-year-old Kacey and her fifteen-year-old sister, Livie, escape Grand Rapids, Michigan, to start over in Miami. Struggling to make ends meet, Kacey needs to figure out how to get by. But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle anything—anything but her mysterious neighbor in apartment 1D.

Trent Emerson has smoldering blue eyes, deep dimples, and he perfectly skates that irresistible line between nice guy and bad boy. Hardened by her tragic past, Kacey is determined to keep everyone at a distance, but their mutual attraction is undeniable and Trent is determined to find a way into Kacey’s guarded heart—even if it means that an explosive secret could shatter both their worlds.

Review: Kasey Cleary and her sister, Livie, are starting a new life in Miami, where no one knows of the drunken driving accident that killed Kasey’s parents, best friend, and boyfriend. Miami seems like a big improvement from their overly-religious aunt and pervert uncle’s house. Livie is going to school and Kasey is (slowly) becoming friends with their neighbor, Storm, and her daughter Mia. Kasey and Livie are barely scraping by with Kacey’s Starbucks paycheck. Storm notices and manages to get Kacey a job bartending at a strip club ***Just serving drinks!*** The pay is goodand Kasey’s rock-hard exterior starts melting. And there’s also the cute neighbor Tristan, who makes Kacey so confused. They begin to develop a heated relationship, and things look good. Everyday a piece of Before Kacey comes back. Then Kacey discovers Tristan’s BIG secret and it ruins everything…

            Woah! First, Love. The. Cover. Now onto the actual content: Ten Tiny Breaths by K. A. Tucker is so very sad/inspiring/awe-invoking that I just have to give it ten stars! However, while I highly recommend it, Ten Tiny Breaths has a few heated sex scenes as well as a bunch of bad language.

10/10 stars, Ages 14+
