K.A. Tucker’s Ten Tiny Breaths is the contemporary tale of a shattered young woman and the twisted roads that lead to her ultimate healing.
As the lone survivor of the car accident that killed her parents, boyfriend and best friend, Kacey is a shell of the young woman she once was. Terrorized by nightmares of the evening they were hit head-on by a drunk driver, Kacey’s sorrow and anger cause her to act out in self destructive ways. Her only remaining reason for living is her little sister Livie. When their uncle makes inappropriate advances towards Livie, the two young women go on the run in an attempt to build a new life in a small apartment complex in Florida.
Kacey never expected that the quirky neighbors in her new home would force her to open up – offering, and at time demanding, her friendships and even love. But, with opening herself up again to life and relationships Kacey unknowingly releases herself to facing the grief and loss from her past. Add in the introduction of another damaged soul looking for forgiveness and closure and you have an explosively sexy, fast-paced tale of 2 people struggling to find peace.
I recommend Ten Tiny Breaths to anyone looking for a gritty contemporary story with romance and strong, though damaged characters. If you enjoy this title you can also like Dare You To by Katie McGarry.
