Inhale...Exhale...Just Breathe...

Look. I'm not even going to pretend that Just Breathe is just any other book. Or that I don't have seriously strong feelings about each book, the series as a whole, as well as author Kendall Grey. The Just Breathe Series is one that I've become deeply invested in, beginning nearly two years ago when Grey first started telling me about the concept. I'm not going to pretend that I didn't go into this book whole-hearted and expecting epicness. Of all the books that

Just Breath was an amazing final to the series. A series that was a complete joy to read. I loved the ongoing adventure and the smexy scenes! The series in a whole is everything you could want, it is swoonworhty, angsty, aggrivating, sexy, passionate, and funny. Gavin Cassidy happens to be in my Top Five Book Boyfriends list. I love the setting and the fact that the proceeds go to whales.

"Just Breathe?" What? No. You can't possibly expect me to be able to breathe after a series like this! You know that feeling you get when you buy the last book in a series you love? That moment of sweetness balanced out by the bitterness of an end? Yep, Kendall Grey took it there. After the cliff-hanger ending in Exhale, I couldn't WAIT to get my hands onto Just Breathe but once I got it I thought, "Awe man. This is- this is the end!"

Just Breathe is the 3rd book in the Just Breathe Trilogy.

Kendall Grey has taken my breath away once again. Just Breathe was a truly epic ending to the Just Breathe Trilogy Kendall knows how to pull you into the story and makes you feel the characters emotions. Everything from hate, grief, and love through every single page. Just Breathe was an unpredictable roller coaster that me up late and reading every single spare moment of free time

Just Breathe is the final book in Kendall Grey’s Just Breathe series. In the first two books, Inhale and Exhale, we got to know Zoe Morgan, whale biologist and translator, and Gavin Cassidy, rock star and Sentinel tasked with protecting humans (Wyldlings). We also immersed ourselves in the vivid urban fantasy world that Grey has done such a great job of creating. After the devastating conclusion of Exhale, Just Breathe finds Gavin and Zoe trying to

If you have not read the first two books in this series, do your self a favor and go do so now. It is amazing and book one is currently (as of 2/10/2013) free on Amazon. If you have read the first two books in this series, my guess is you are not even reading this review because you are currently snuggled up with your own copy of this read.

Well, here we are at the end of the series. I'm sad, yet very happy with the way the series has ended. BUT, I know I'll get to see these characters again, so like I said, I'm happy too.

At the end of Exhale, I was devastated, heartbroken, and a bit sick to my stomach. I wasn't sure that Gavin and Zoe could make it through together. Yes, Gavin has made some truly grave mistakes and Zoe needs time to heal. But, the thing is...this couple was destined to be together. I won't lie and say I wasn't ne

After reading this the third and final installment in the Just Breathe series, my first reaction was Holy Freaking Hotness!!!

Desperate and willing to do anything to stop the Fyre's Gavin make's the ultimate deal with the devil, and it absolutely killed me. I remember whispering the words no as Gavin met with the devil to discuss the details and when the deed was actually done I actually held my breath, hoping, praying that he wouldn't go through with it. But he did, because finally Gavin accept

I am so sad to see this series end but I don't think I could have taken much more. This series is one of my favorites of all time. Not only is it urban fantasy, it's a totally fresh premise. I loved it for its originality, the complexities of the characters (not just the good ones either), and the plot. Kendall Grey makes the A list with this amazing series.
As much as I loved this, I don't know if I could have survived another book. Grey got me invested in the characters like few authors can. T

I've been waiting for this book for what seems like AGES! Grey doesn't disappoint. What a fantastic ending for a trilogy that stole my breath with creativity and unique plotting. The characters all had a full arc over the three books, and with such an epic story, it's hard to pull off a truly great climactic ending--and Grey absolutely did it. I only had one beef with Grey's choice for one of the characters (not going to mention it because of spoilers), but I grudgingly understand why she did it ...more

This book was everything I knew it would be--a triple slice of awesome pie! Gavin made this book complete and Zoe gave it the reality stamp! I adored the characters, the nature, and the beautiful heat throughout! Kendall, thank you for taking it THERE!

If you haven't read this series, definitely start with the beginning, but for sure don't miss this ending! Loved!

What an amazing end to a great trilogy. These books were intense. Not for the faint of heart that's fore sure. Grey does a fantastic job creating an unique and engaging world. And her characters...Oh my. My heart went out for each of them...heck, I even loved the bad guys. LOL!

Nicely done, Kendall Grey.

Jeez. I think my emotions have run an obstacle course, been chased by wild dogs and then rocked to sleep all in one day! When I started this book I knew going in that shit would be tough due to the way EXHALE ended but I had no clue what I was in for! I started reading it a little over a week ago and got to 26% and started freaking out emotionally and quit reading. I was so distraught I had to read another review just to brace myself for what was to come. That didn't even help because what I wan ...more

There were parts of this book that I wasn't crazy about, things I could nitpick about. But I'm not going to do that because this book deserves better than that.

First, the characters. I will go on and on about Zoe and Gavin shortly but we cannot overlook Sinnder and Scarlet. I love Scarlet. She is beautiful, oozes sexiness and is the embodiment of evil. What's not to love? She's fun in her own devilish way. Lust pours out of her. She knows what she wants and heaven help the person who gets in he

I'm not sure if I'm able to write a review that just is about this one book. Feels like a revew should be done about the series as a whole. Since I read them all back to back this week, I might have some trouble separating what happened in each book. But I'll try.

“Just Breathe” by Kendall Grey is the exciting conclusion to the ‘Just Breathe’ trilogy that includes “Inhale” and “Exhale”. The conflict between the Elementals is approaching a frightening climax, destined to culminate on equinox and there is a problem with choosing the Waeters’ Archelemental. Researcher Zoe Morgan and Gavin Cassidy’s relationship may be damaged beyond any repair after the machinations of the Fyre Scarlet and Zoe’s work as the translator between the whales and the ot

What the f**k just happened? We start not long after Gavin does what he did with Scarlet to Zoe. I mean ... BITCH. Seriously, can I kill Scarlet myself? I don't think I have ever hated a bad guy as much as I hate her. I was shaking with rage every time she made an appearance. At the same time, my heart was shattered for Zoe & Gavin. They

This final book drove me crazy.
Gavin was just downright stupid in his decision making at times. I almost threw my freakin Kindle across the room! Okay, I'm not gonna lie...I did throw a few tantrums. My 3-year-old asked me to calm down if that relays any information about my headspace at the time. When the hopelessness and despair got to be too much, I actually had to stop reading and step away.

That's really the only way to describe the thrilling, enchanting ending to the Just Breathe trilogy. Once again, Kendall Grey sweeps us into the world of Realis and Dreaming as the Sentinels, alongside Zoe and her whales, prepare to battle for the well-being of themselves and Wyldings everywhere (that's humans for those who aren't in the know).

Nicely rounded and engaging ending to the trilogy. I think it was also the best of the bunch. I liked that the author left an opening for a continuation of the story for some of the secondary characters, in fact some of their questions were left unanswered and serve as well done hooks, but I don't feel like I got hit with a cliff hanger. If Ms. Grey doesn't write another one then I'll hold the unanswered questions inside and wonder fondly, but the primary protagonists definitely got their well w ...more
