Ten Tiny Breaths 18+

The following review is for 18+ reader
 5 of 5 stars false 

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.


Just breathe. Ten tiny breaths … Seize them. Feel them. Love them.”
This is one of those times that I will try and write a blooming great review for a book and will just come out lacking. I honestly don't think I can do this book justice.
Ten Tiny Breaths amazed me. I was left a bubbling mess, rethinking all the pain and anguish these characters had gone through to finally reach a happily ever after.
This love story was a good one and although I saw where it was going before I got there I don't think it did anything to put me off. In fact because I was pretty sure where it was going it made everything that happened, everything that was said that more full on.
Trent and Kacey have haunted paths, tragedy haunts both of them. One is full of anger, the other seeking forgiveness.
They come together and for once Kacey can't seem to push someone away.
Trent has a determination about him to make things right for Kacey and it is a lovely thing.
"I want to make you smile. For real. Always. We're going to go for dinners, and see movies, and walk on the beach. We'll go hang gliding, or bungee jumping, or whatever you want to do. Whatever makes you smile and laugh more. Let me make you smile."
I felt such anguish for Trent in this book, to work so hard,god!!! You will understand when you read it. What a wonderful man with such good intentions, I could not flaw him for them.
"I'll make you whole again, Kacey. I promise you, I will.”
There is an array of beautiful secondary characters that really make this book, they give it an extra sparkle. Storm and Mia are a pair I am glad were put in as they broke up the seriousness and helped bring out the hope. Not just for characters but for me as well.
Ten Tiny Breaths is a tale of tragedy, trauma but also hope and forgiveness.
It has been written extremely well, with the flash backs, each time you feel the horror of Kacey and you understand her pain.
I feel very lucky to have read this book, it is definitely one that will stay with me.
I love, love, loved it and I would recommend it to all as it is a very worthwhile read.
