Review: Breathe by Abbi Glines

Released: May 16, 2011
Publisher: Wild Child Publishing
Rated: YA
Buy: Amazon

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 without each other breathe again?

What I thought

I really enjoyed this book and I'm glad I took a chance on it. I wasn't so sure about it at first. But in the end, I really enjoyed the story and the characters. It was sweet, romantic and a fairy tale come true.

I wasn't so sure about the rock star thing. But I'm glad it all worked out and didn't reflect where I thought it would go. Jax was more than just some playboy I was expecting. He struggles at first to resist Sadie since there seems to be no future in the relationship for either of them.

Sadie's mother really had me irritated and on Sadie's side. She hasn't grown out of her prima donna stage and seems to be nothing but a hindrance to Sadie. I was glad to see how many of her new coworkers help her out and befriend her when she needs the support now more than ever, since she has a little brother on the way.

I'm glad I took the time to read this and I hope that others do as well. It's a great story and I will be on the look out to try out more from this author.
