In the shore town of Sea Breeze, Sadie discovers that fame is nothing in the face of passion. A steamy read from bestselling author Abbi Glines.

Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal—if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house—maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

Even though Sadie isn’t impressed by Jax’s fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax, but he fights his attraction: Relationships never work in his world, and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. Yet as the summer stretches on, Jax’s passion leaves him breathless—and Sadie feels like the only source of oxygen.

Can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? One breath at a time, they’re going to find out…

  • Not the best, but an easy and fluffy read

    By Bookbruin
    I was looking for an easy and fluffy read and stumbled upon Breathe. Yes, there is a lot of cheese in this book, but I didn't mind it very much because I didn't go into it thinking I would read anything earth shattering. Breathe is a Cinderella style story about a girl, Sadie, who has a rough life, but ends up meeting and falling in love with her own prince charming, Jax. Yes, the writing wasn't the best by any means, and it's all a bit unbelievable (and predictable), but I still found it enjoyable for what it was. I ended up liking Marcus the best and was glad that he is featured in the next book of this series. As for Sadie, she was the author's typical Mary Sue/completely innocent heroine and Jax, the bad boy hero with a heart of gold. The romance took center stage, so there isn't much plot, but this book is pretty good if you're looking for a quick and light read without any heavy lifting.

    this is a very juvenile story and I wish it was labeled as such. I would have not purchased and wasted my time trying to get through it. I won't be buying more from this author.
  • Ending was horrible

    By Svirgo
    I feel as though the book just ended with no resolution. Like as though it was rushed. They barely got back together and it was over. It leaves you hanging as though there is a sequel which do far there is not. Frustrating because I'd like to know what happens with jax and Sadie in the future. Other than the ending it was a good book! Couldn't put it down. Unfortunately the ending is what ruined this book for me.
  • I LOVE IT!

    I did not happen to read this when it first came out. So I got to read the re-amped version. And I loved it! I read all of this book in one night. I couldn't stop. It's every girls fairy tail love. This is one of those books that I will not stop until everyone of friends read it! LOVE. LOVE LOVE. LOVE.
  • Loved it but it was missing a lot

    By Brandonj93
    It is a nice entertaining book. I finished it in less than 24 hours. Couldn't stop reading it . I'm a sucker for young teen romance lol. Wish the book was longer . I want more of jac and Sadie lol . Sequel please ! I feel like it could've had problems with the mom involved and just more from each mom . Both Sadie's and jaX mom.

  • Eh

    By Unimpressed in FL
    The most aggravating thing about this book was the way the dialog was written: like a cross between a Jane Austen novel and a research paper. The way everyone spoke was completely unrealistic. I also felt like Jax and Sadie fell in love WAY too easily. All of a sudden they couldn't live without each other. Very strange. Overall, this novel was hard to read and I wouldn't recommend it.
