Barely Breathing (Breathing #2)
Sweet Jesus, this book was just as intesnse and emotional for me as the first, love it just as much. The sequel picks up months after Emma's attack from the Evil Bitch from hell "aka" Carol, and Emma has now made the decision to live with her mother Rachel and start over. I was little hesitant on her living with her mother again, but I thought hey it can be a fresh start for both of them...more

I remember finishing it, crying at 2 in the night and running to my laptop to see if this could possibly be the end, i was so glad it wasn't and then i cried some more,,.-))
Absolutely loved it, can't wait for the final installment, but please a HEA would be preferable because how much can a person suffer.

What are you trying to do to me Ms. Rebecca Donovan?!?
So many emotions run through me after finishing this book.... Then an abundance of questions...

This book was a bit hard for me to read to be honest. I was so frustrated with Emma!! I can't understand why she kept letting her mother hurt her, why she let herself be...more
WARNING: Have Xanax on hand before starting this book!!
After the brutal cliffhanger of book #1, Reason To Breathe , I was both excited and absolutely terrified to start this. I knew I was in for a roller coaster ride and boy was I right!!
So many parts of this book infuriated and frustrated me to no end but I could. not. put. it. down!!
The book started off six months after the ending of the first one. Given the circumstances of that ending, this actually made a lot of sense. But when a person...more
Rebecca Donovan, you a cruel cruel woman! I trusted you with my heart and you ripped out once with the ending of first book, but you've truly done a number on it now... that was excruciating. But utterly delicious and pure evil on your part! What am I going to do with myself until the next book comes out?!
I read until 3.40am this morning because I was completely engrossed in this book.
I would give it five stars, if it weren't for the fact that I struggled a little with the first 20%... I felt it...more
OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ms. Rebecca Donovan, I am so mad at you!!! Your endings are killing me! I must find out about Emma & Evan. How can you leave me hanging like that?!?! I spent many late nights and early mornings following your characters and beautiful books and now I must wait!
If I had known there will be a third book I would of waited to read this book. I hate the cliff hanger in the series! I am so involved now and have to wa...more
Okay. I read the first book and got all the way to 30% in the second book before I realized that (wait a gosh darned second!) Does Emma seem to be developing feelings for someone else? THIS CAN'T BE RIGHT!!!!! So, this prompted me to run to GoodReads and check the reviews before continuing (which I normally don't forget to do before I start a new book, but the first one in the series left me hanging something terrible). Upon my investigation of the reviews what do I do find, but the a...more
This is coming out just before my exams...I'm probably going to fail :|
I was really anticipating this book's release so I downloaded it as soon as I saw that it was available. I read it a lot faster than I read the first one; it didn't seem as long but there was a lot more going on. I found it quite hard to keep up in some parts and at times it felt a bit rushed, but it was still a very exciting and emotional read.
(view spoiler)[The new ch...more
I'm emotionally exhausted! All this feelings...
THANKGOD I've waited to read this book until the release of the last one in the series! I couldn't have waited more than a year!! I don't know if I could handle that cliffhanger more than a few hours, a year would be emotional torture!
How can I review this book!? I'm speechless, I have to read book3 immediatly, hopefully by the end of that one I'll be coherent enough to write a proper review.
Oh BTW - Read The Breathing Series NOW!
Barely Breathing was raw, heartbreaking and frankly, I was just waiting for Emma to completely lose it through a good portion of the book. The ending left me completely HANGING, I mean hanging! I think Donovan just stuck my hands to the monkey bars with some super glue and left me until she releases Out of Breath. If there is ever a ch...more
I am totally right now!!
Rebecca Donovan YOU ARE A GENIUS! I know the book is called "Barely Breathing" but I think it should be changed to "Extreme Hyperventilating."
Where to start where to start...
*Deep breath in*
*Deep breathe out*
Ok Calm now...
Holy shit what a great sequel!
It has been 6 months since the night Em's aunt
Evan is still right besides her, bei...more
The story starts off six months after the events of book 1. While Emma’s physical wounds have healed properly, the emotional damage left a permanent mark on her soul. In the spur of a moment, she makes the effort to reconnect with her mother, Rachel, and moves in with her, creating many prob...more
The reason for the 4 star rating instead of five is because I want more Emma and Evan!!!
Ps I hate the Jonathan character. Creep.

Emma's entire world shifted at the end of book one. She always thought she would know when things got to the point where she could not handle it and then she would make that hard choice. But in reality Emma never escapes. Her nightmares - her fears don't stay within the walls of that house.
But Emma is still that girl that tries to push it all down. She still can't trust anyone to expose them to the reality of what she experienced.
In Barely Breathing you get to see the aftermath of the destructi...more

WOW! That was totally, one hundred percent not what I expected. I am in shock right now. I, flat-out, did not see that coming!
First off, I loved Reason to Breathe, the first novel in The Breathing Series. It was an intense, explosive story. While reading Reason to Breathe, I fell head over heels for Emma and Evan. Watching them fall in love helped balance out the dark, heavy, emotional side of the story that was c...more
" My heart fought for each beat as the pieces began to fall. "I love you," I breathed.---Emma
I actually cannot believe that I was dissappointed reading this second book.
**Sigh** I actually loved the first book so much. I actually am very caught in each and every emotion.
But for this second book the emotions were too much. To the extent that it did not touched me at all. There was too much drama, run-arounds, scenes that I thought were not necessary.
Emma, now recovering from the...more
"I breathed for you." - Evan
The book had a lot of emotions, I just wish I felt a bit more of it..
I LOVED EVAN! His characters was amazing...
Emma is fucking dumb, totally deserves a slap.
Jonathan was absolutely amazing but fucking crazy at the same time..
I loved Sara's and Evan's family
Rachel was a fucking whore, deserves to die... like seriously, I barely gave two fucks about h...more
This is probably the most depressing book, i have ever read in my life. When you read this, it's like you can : feel the pain, and all the sadness, all those emotions are just pouring out of the pages.
This is how I pictured the main protagonist, Emma
And this is how i kinda pictured Ethan, delete the tiny beard though.
Barely Breathing is the second book in the heartbreaking Breathing trilogy, by Rebecca Donovan. May i just say, this is absolutely MASSIVE, it's the biggest book i ev...more
