Ten Tiny Breaths

I stayed up late finishing this book. I was told to read this book and I wouldn't regret it if I did...

Description from Amazon:

Just breathe, Kacey. Ten tiny breaths. Seize them. Feel them. Love them.
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.

Here are my thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book and I definitely did not regret reading it and I will probably read it again in the future. I loved Kacey!! I am sure that if Kacey was a real person, her and I could be best friends because the things she would say would definitely be something I would say to someone or in a certain situation. She was smart, sassy, sweet, sarcastic and funny as HELL!! There were many times that I would be reading and then bust out laughing, scaring my poor husband out of a dead sleep! Kacey's life is anything but easy, she took on the responsibility of taking care of herself and her teenage sister, moved to Miami, and started a whole new life but the only problem is.. she can't let go of her past and what happened to her family, boyfriend and best friend in that car accident. She dreams about the accident every night to the point where she feels like she is drowning and has to be woken up. 
She meets Trent in Miami in the apartment complex that she lives in. She is instantly attracted to him and he seems very attracted to her. The only part of this book that I did not like was how fast the relationship evolved between Trent and Kacey. I think it needed more build up but I still loved them and the curve ball that the author put in the book was NOT expected but I wasn't surprised. It was worth staying up late reading and once you crack this book open you will be sucked right into it!!

I recommend this to anyone!!

Here are some TEASERS from the book...

"She shakes his hand quickly before recoiling as if she might get pregnant with the touch, her eyes avoiding anything to do with his half-open shirt and that gorgeous toned body underneath. I grin inwardly. My chaste Livie." page 76

"I should stalk over there and pee around his table to stake my claim. Wait...What?" page 92

""You hate me, don't you? You must hate me. I can't help it. I'm broken." Trent squeezes me close to him. "I don't hate you. I could never hate you. Give me your heart, Kacey. I'll take everything that comes with it."" page 179

I give this book a 4/5**** and YOU should buy it from Amazon..You will NOT regret it..
