Sadie White's summer job isn't going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother's increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother's job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn't spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star.

Even though Sadie isn't impressed by Jax's fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax but he fights his attraction. Relationship's never work in his world and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. By the end of the summer, Jax discovers he can't breathe without Sadie.

But can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? Or will they have to learn how to breathe again?

The Review: I went backwards in the Abbi Glines reading, and read her Sea Breeze series last. I did enjoy this one, having now read all 4 books so far, this one is just ok. It's not great, but I think I put that down to it being her debut novel, and the rest of the books do get better.

I really enjoyed this story;  I've always liked the idea of falling for a rock star and having them love you back just as much. So this was one of those stories that girls dream about sometimes.

Sadie as a character was great, I really liked her, she had a lot to deal with and she handled her home situation well. Her relationship with Jax was a good start; I liked the start as a friendship and then slowly moving onto romance.

The pacing of the story was good, I don't feel it lacked story, it was right there. I do believe something was missing. As a New Adult genre this was pretty tame, but I don't know maybe that's because it was a debut novel and Abbi was just starting out. Overall the pacing was great. The secondary characters were awesome to have around especially Marcus who bought a new dimension to the story with his sweetness and being able to show Sadie that he would be the better choice, but her heart was already taken.

Overall Breathe I thought was a good first start to what ended up being a great series. I think it's best to give this one a go, you'll get a sense of the characters to start with, but you can also skip it if it's not for you. I enjoyed it, probably wouldn't read this one again but I'd definitely start from Marcus' story.

I love Abbi Glines and I love nearly all her books. This one however felt flat for me. I'm happy I decided to read on with this series because the books are getting so much better! I still need to read the last one, but this one is definitely the weakest of them all..

I do not know whether it's just me or if everybody else encountering issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my browser because I've had
this happen before. Thank you

Unfortunately I didn't really get into Abbi's The Vincent Boys (or the whole New Adult books
for that), but your review of Breathe definitely convinces me to give another
of her books a try. The cover for Breathe is so beautiful and I read about hot
scenes in your review of its sequel;) Great reviews!
