"Breathe" by Abbi Glines

Breathe - Abbi Glines

I'm not a big fan of young adult romance novels. But every now and then I read a book I've heard others praise.


Reading "Breathe" was an experience. Not a very pleasant one I have to admit.

The story was too sweet and cheesy to be believable. Maybe if I had seen inside Jax's head, heard his thoughts, my opinion would have been different. But every time he opened his mouth I just thought .... who talks like that? And Jax was a jerk ....overly poetic but still a jerk. He saw Marcus and Sadie together and decided he had to have her. He dictated all the rules and made all the decisions and because Sadie was so much in love - honestly it was pathetic - she just let him get away with it and just sighed dreamily how loving and protective Jax was. Wake up, girl! Marcus was the one who picked up the pieces when your "loving" rock star dumped you. Why do I even bother? Jax and Sadie annoyed me a lot.

I still have a lot of questions about the story and main characters' future. Because the second story in the series is about Marcus, I won't get the answers.

I also wanted to know more about Jax's family. There were glimpses of his brother but what about the parents? How thrilled were they, when finding out their famous rock star son was dating a kitchen help? Were they wealthy before Jax became a rock star or did they live on his expense? And where the hell were they during this "family" vacation?

I didn't like this book very much. 2 stars
