It was light reading, there weren't any particularly boring passages but it lacked any truth in it. I know that when you read fantasy there is the supernatural element that doesn't make it real ...more

This was the cheesiest book I’ve read this year. I may not have chosen the right story as first one read by this author of whom I only heard positive things. Don’t think I hated it, because I didn’t, but it definitely was a book I could have skipped.
The love-triangle took me by surprise. I did not expect it and was sure that it was going to be very simple as in Sadie meets Jax ( ...more
Seventeen year-old Sadie White just moved from Tennessee to the Alabama coast with her mother. Her mother, who she refers to as Jessica, is very pregnant by a loser-du-jour boyfriend. Sadie's mom refuses to work anymore, so Sadie has no choice but to try and take over her mother's job as a domestic servant in a swanky mansion. Little does Sadie know that this is the home of the very famous, drool-worthy, Jax Stone, the teen-heart-throb singer. Normally, they wouldn't hire a teenage girl to work ...more
Working as a domestic servant for a wealthy family, Sadie never in her wildest dreams expected it to be the house rockstar Jax Stone spends his summer at, trying to escape his hectic lifestyl ...more

This is the first Abbi Glines book that I've read. It's nice to re-read this book only in its updated version. Now, it is told in dual perspective (the first edition is told only in Sadie's perspective) and there are additional scenes that leans more on the "New Adult" side (the old version is more of Young Adult because there's no "intimate" scene on it) which I find better because it matches the rest of the series.
As always, it's a guilty-pleasure read and you can read t ...more
The whole Cinderella trope is always fun when done well - I don't even mind that it's a cliche. Disney channel seems capable of making a zillion teen remakes of Cinderella that are cute and fun. This book falls totally flat though.
Sadie is the Mary-est Sue of Mary Sues. She is drop dead gorgeous, but doesn't realize it. She thinks she has no personality (and ...more
At one point I found myself comparing BREATHE to those older Regency romances. And while this is by no means a bodice ripper, it’s got the same feel to it. What with its poor girl who doesn’t think that much of herself, that and the fact that she’s got ‘the weight of the world on her shoulders,’ (yes, someone in the book actually says that about her.) Said weight is embodied mainly in a mothe ...more
This book is just about cliches *rolleyes*
1. Girl who doesn't believe she's beautiful: check
2. Guy who everyone think is shallow and brat, but oh no, is just a lost soul: check
3. An impossible love story: check
4. A love triangle no-so-love-triangle: check
5. A friendzoned guy: check
6. Love at first sight (literally): check
7. A girl with an I-really-don't-think-you're-that-hot attitude: check
And I can continue... But I don't want to. This is just another silly love story, about a so-poor girl who ...more
So I instantly got the book and read it. Even stayed up all night to finish it.
And I am so happy I did!!
I have two reviews waiting to be done but I am going to write this one first since I MORE than ADORED this book <3
To be honest, I didn’t like it. The ...more
I`m already giving this book 5 Stars no matter I still have to finish it because one thing I`m sure about that when I'll be done with Breathe I want to shower it with Zillions OF STARS!!!
“Your touch is my only addiction.
Your heartbeat takes my breath away.
You’ll break my heart if you don’t stay.
Your whispers sing to me each night,
and your laugh is my only sun.
“Hold me and whisper you love me.
Hold me and tell m ...more
When Sadie White moves from Tennessee to Alabama with her pregnant, single mom, she immediately begins to take over the family responsibility of keeping a roof over their head. That includes becoming the hired help for the famous rock-star Jax Stone. Sadie works hard to prove herself to her new boss Ms. Mary in the hopes that she’ll give her a chance to keep her job throughout the summer while her mom waits to give birth.
During her time at Jax’s house, she runs in ...more
We got it, Abbi. We know you have something for Rock Stars. Now can you get over them? It's not that I don't like Rock because I LOVE it. However, I don't like the author writing about the same type of people each time.
Jax is this OMG perfect boyfriend. Sadie is this mature, innocent, mature, sweet, responsible, mature, perfect girl. Alright, we know that she's mature, can you stop repeating it now? The story was cheesy. Okay, too cheesy but at least it was short. I liked some parts enough to gi...more
I had this book for awhile now and even though I'm not a fan of Abbi Glines' books still, there's a part of me that wants to read hers anyways because her books are short and I love romance and sometimes her writing can be addicting but most of the time the plot or how the her story goes doesn't work out for me. Sometimes I read it because of the hot guys she writes and dang those hot guys are my weakness.
Hey I'm a girl in need of book boyfriends and her books ha ...more
I'm rereading this because I Love Abbi Glines books and this is the NEW VERSION with steamy scenes and Jax's POV. Can't wait to see the changes:) Review to come once I finish the book :
Abbi Glines is pure GENIUS in my book. She can't go wrong. Breathe was my very first Abbi Glines book and I fell in love with Sadie and Jax's story. So I was so excited to hear that she was re-releasing it in a STEAMIER version and adding Jax's POV. Well I will just say this version did not disappoint. I a ...more
Here's some of what you can expect:

I did like the secondary characters and it was touching to see how they took to Sadie and made her one of the family within the staff. ...more
Well, I never guess that I will DNF Abbi Glines book. I read her other series, Rosemary Beach. I found it interesting. However with Sea Breeze series it is too juvenile. The story of modern Cinderella. A girl meet her prince charming. The prince charming is a rock star. Jax is suppose to be sweet and perfect. But I found him t be 1 dimensional.
Sadie is suppose to be a strong and independent young woman who thrusts into the world way too young. But she is also very 1 dimensional. There is no ...more
