“He leans in closer and closer until his breath caresses my mouth. I’m paralyzed. I swear he’s going to kiss me. I swear I’m going to let him.” -K.A. Tucker, Ten Tiny Breaths

Goodreads Book Description:
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.
Valeria’s Book Review:
I have never related more to anyone in a book until I read Ten Tiny Breaths. Kacey has to be my absolute favorite character in all of the books that I have read. I related so much to her when I was reading and it made me see just how similar we are to each other. The fact that Kacey is a badass and doesn’t take crap from anyone, is someone I aspire to be. But she is hardcore, protective, caring and doesn’t want to feel or have anything to do with any guy. Just by seeing that in her, it was as if I was reading about myself!
K.A. Tucker definitely had me hooked…more like obsessed with her books!!!
As soon as I finished reading Ten Tiny Breaths I went straight to One Tiny Lie (the second book to the series).
HER WRITING IS PERFECTION!!
The whole book is filled with mystery, love and so much emotion. Towards the end you see that the story has an unexpected twist and you would have never thought things to turn out the way they do! This book will definitely have you turning page after page.
The fact that the story is so raw and real made it that much more perfect. It made me realize that anyone could be living this reality, and maybe this same exact situation who could relate exactly to what both Kacey and Livie are living.
“I don’t hate you. I could never hate you. Give me your heart, Kacey. I’ll take everything that comes with it.”
Trent is the absolute hot, sexy, perfect book boyfriend that will make you fall in love with him almost immediately!
“No human can bury their past indefinitely. It’s only a matter of time before you crack.”
He has a past, a very dark past that will shock you and make you realize why he is the way he is. The unexpected turn of events will open up answers about everything that he hide. Trent has good intentions, and he is only trying to look out for Kacey. He cares about her and wants her to let go and not hurt anymore. He is there for her and he wishes that she could see what is right in front of her.
“I’ll make you whole again, Kacey. I promise you, I will.”
You will see just how much they each come to need each other through their dark times.
“I can feel his very existence as if it’s wrapping its hand around my soul, cradling it, trying to protect it from harm and I’m terrified. Terrified because I don’t ever want the feeling to end.”
Kacey didn’t plan on falling for him, or even wanting to talk to him whatsoever. But I am a strong believer that things happen for a reason, and why they meet is exactly for a reason, so when she does you know that it was meant to be. That together they both empower each other and need one another to overcome the obstacles in their lives.
“For two years, I haven’t given anyone the time of day. Now, here I am, day one into our new life, and I’m ready to straddle this guy on the washer.”
You will absolutely love Ten Tiny Breaths, just like I did! A beautifully written novel, with so much detail and realness to it.
