Summary: +detailed plot +multi-dimensional characters + original plot lines – a little over dramatic in parts +good chemistry between mains +good world building
New witch Aisling Green is trying to find out what she is and the world she’s entered with no luck. When a dark witch tries to kill her, she’s rescued by Connor, a light witch, and he agrees to help her.
They discover she’s not just a witch. She’s the most powerful creature in existence. An Earthen witch. While they try to develop her unique power, Aisling realizes that she’s fallen for Connor. But her heart isn’t the only thing in danger. Word begins to spread about what she is, and people want her dead. Her power is the key to her salvation. But can she learn to access it before it’s too late?
Just Breathe is the first book that I have read in a while that really caught me off guard. I was really pleasantly surprised by how descriptive and well thought out it is. Just Breathe follows Ainsley, a newly discovered witch with more than just your average potential. Well built and complex, Ainsley is saved by a tall, dark and handsome stranger and thrust into a world she never expected. This story follows her through her journey of self discovery, the development of her talents and the emotional trials she faces.
I enjoyed the way the feelings slowly build between Connor and Ainsley. The love scenes are well written and the world building detailed. The one thing that really threw me off is the way Ainsley continuously plays the emotionally scarred damsel in distress. This chick is supposed to be the IT girl. She has the power to spank even the worst bad guy like an insolent child…but she just falls over and cries on hot guys shoulder while he coddles her more than once. Made me want to throttle her a few times. It does speak to the obstacles she has to overcome and helps the reader relate to her baggage..I just like my girls a bit more sturdy. She does redeem herself when all is said and done and the cliffhanger is totally tolerable.
This was a fun read for me. I plan on reading books two and three. You can find this book for free on Smashwords. Just search the authors name.
I received a free copy of this book and volunteered an honest review.
