Amanda's review of Just Breath - Book One
This is a wonderful debut book for Rachel Brookes. Let us start with the characters. Savannah is one of the wild girls, you know the ones that party and drink and have random hook-ups? The girls who think with their lady parts and not their brains... Savannah has been put to the test with life, dealing with her parents and her boyfriends death and this is why she becomes the way she is. Until that one night she meets Tate... Tate is the male equivalent to Savannah, and they work so well together, even if they don't always get along.
Not only are the main characters excellent but all the characters in the book leave you wanting to wish you were in their world. Tanzi is the best friend you wish you had, and her boyfriend Jack well their relationship is what everyone wants, and then Mr. Davenport I'll just leave you to decide on him :). I commend Rachel for a well thought out book and for once, not going the same route, for giving a heroine who is damaged but strong.
I give this book 5 stars
Breathless - Book two
Breathless is a great read as well, only this time your in Tate Conner's mind, and let's be honest who doesn't want to be in Tate's mind? He's funny, he's sexy, he's hot... but he's damaged. This book shows you so much into Tate and its great. I love seeing how much Tate really does care for Sav... in the first book he could come across as an ass, but now that Sav is pregnant and they are going to have a baby and its in his POV you can see that his is going to be a great dad, and that the love he has for Savannah is true and real.
I love being able to see his relationship with his twin Tanzi as well, it shows you how close the two of them really are and it makes me wish I was a twin. I love this book and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Overall the book was great, it made me laugh, cry, get angry, and in my eyes a book that can pull so many emotions from you is worth the shot at reading. Good job with this book Rachel!
I give Breathless 5 stars
