Breathe You by Celeste Grande is book two in the Pieces of Broken series. It is an NA, second chance romance, and should only be read after book one.

“Remember in life, there are second chances.”

Holy moly! Celeste Grande can write prologues that make steam and flames come out of your ears, growls come out of your mouth, and daggers out of your eyes. I just recently finished Live Me, so I knew coming into Breathe You would be difficult. Nope. Not difficult. Heart debilitating.

You never feel the dark until your light is gone.

Here I sit after finishing Breathe You by Celeste Grande, my heart still beating to the tune of this BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN BOOK. Breathe You blasted through me like countless cannons catapulting my heart, a heart that pounded out of my chest, where every word pierced me everywhere. Tears were etched in my eyes from the emotions that escaped all over the pages like raindrops. I SHATTERED into pieces!!! This heart-clenching tale crushed me

Wow! I’m utterly speechless after this read. I waited for this sequel in Eva and Blake’s love story for what seems like forever and it completely surpassed my better hopes. Celeste Grande signed another novel bursting with all the feels that left me breathless. Her beautiful prose helps with the way the emotions are superbly delivered throughout Breathe You.

“With every beat of my heart and pump of blood through my veins, I live and breathe you.”
At the end of Live Me we were left wrecked and broken underneath that willow tree, hearts in our throats and stomachs in knots. The hopelessness these characters were feeling radiated through the pages, leaving me anxious to find out what was going to happen with Blake and his Angel. Well let me tell you, Breathe You gave me everything I could have wanted, and so much more! This is a story of love, hope, and salvation.

Breathe You is the breathtaking, heartbreaking, and heart-healing, conclusion

I pretty much devoured this book in less than two days. I couldn't put Blake and his Angel down.

The story picks up right after Live Me ended with a broken Eva and devastated Blake, but in their misery, the both of them find their own voices on their way back to each other. Celeste Grande's writing has a beautiful, poetic prose that draws you right in. It was a story of unconditional love and redemption, and so many possibilities for the awesome secondary characters to have their own stories. On

Need to collect my thoughts first before I write my review...

So much emotional heartache witnessed in this book by so many characters...

Breathe You has been one of my most anticipated reads. I’ve probably driven Ms. Grande crazy with all my PMs. But you know what? This book was PERFECT! And I’m so glad she made it perfect! I wouldn’t have it any other way. They always say good things come to those who wait. And let me tell you, it’s the absolute truth!! And now on to try and find some words for a review because nothing will even get remotely anything across that I just read! But here goes.

Breathe perfectly titled. There were times during this book where the air was stolen from my lungs because the angst was lodged in my throat. Admittedly, I'm an angst whore and this book fed my craving in a way it hasn't been satiated in a long time.

Celeste's debut, Live Me, showed her talent as a wordsmith, but Breathe You proved that all the words she writes are pure poetry. And what's even better than the profoundly beautiful words is the unforgettably beautiful story--the love, th

5 MILLION STARS!!!!!! I am speechless of the words Celeste has brought to paper...

"I wouldn't care if you were particles of dust in the sand. I'd still fix you."

Drop everything you are doing and read this book.. You must read book one Live Me first in order to get the full heartbreaking story. It took everything I had in me to get through this book..This book isn't for the faint at heart. This is a very sensitive subject. In fact, I had to message a few people to get through this book.

“To live you is to breathe you To move you through my being Piece me back to life again You’re the glue to my undoing.” You guys!!! I cried for like 70 of the 79 chapters! And I’m not a crier. At. All. I’m also not a romance reader-I like Rom Coms and paranormal romance, or historical fiction with romance. But just the mushy romance? Nope. This book though, it pulls your heart out through your eyeballs. You want justice, but you don’t want the book to end. And you fall in love with some of the b ...more

Two years ago I read a book that broke the mold. It was a book that owned every single emotion I had. It was a book that wowed me on every single level possible. It was a book that has stuck with me over the years and has owned a piece of my heart since that first time I read it.

It was a book that changed everything.

That book was Live Me, the first book in this beautifully breathtaking series by Celeste Grande.

It was in that book that I fell heart first into a love story that was so intensely

I am trying to find a way to write this review without giving too much away, especially if readers have yet to read Live Me the first book in the Pieces of Broken Series.

Breathe you picks up exactly where Live Me left us. I'm sure all of us had tears running down our faces, I know I did.

Blake walked away after Eva's Third bug-out. She couldn't tell him about what had been happening to her since she was 14 years old. She didn't want him to know. She wanted to protect him.

Breathe You is a book that I have been both looking forward to and dreading ever since finishing Live Me. Why you ask? Looking forward to it, because having met Eva and Blake, I needed to know what happened next. Dreading it because with the struggles they faced in Live Me, I couldn’t imagine what would come next.
This installment of the story picks up immediately after where Live Me left off (so reading the first book is a must) and takes us through Eva’s journey of finding herself and fighting

I am so incredibly blown away by this book and no matter what I write in this review my words will not do it justice.  Celeste Grande has written a powerful and emotional ode to second chances… second chances at life and love.

Book 1 in the Pieces of Broken series, Live Me, broke my heart; it destroyed me and I even had difficulty finishing the book.  The story was poignant and beautiful and so very sad.  The story of Eva and Blake stayed with me for some time.  The story hurt me so much that I w

This is the second book in the series and book 1 has to be read first.

With her best friend, Jace, beside her she is trying to overcome her past with her sister's fiance Damon. She knows that she needs to heal herself before she can heal her relationship with Blake.

Blake Turner is devastated by the loss of his "Angel" but can't handle the hot and cold of their relationship. It was break

Recommends it for: anyone who loves a great romance, drama, book-boyfriend-worthy book!!!
I received an ARC of this book, and I am so extremely grateful for it. This book deserves nothing but positive remarks and reviews because it is everything I ever could have wanted and hoped for as a sequel to Live Me.
We left off with Eva ending things rather abruptly with Blake, and needless to say, that event left both of them heartbroken and barely breathing....

As a reader I love discovering books that can completely draw me in and not let go until the end, and even beyond. I love reading, I’ve read several books this year already and while I’ve enjoyed every single one I haven’t found one that pulled me in so deep that the outside world annoyed me. Breathe You did that though. Once I started I did NOT want to stop. I was pissed when my kindle died on me during the night so I was up bright and early to continue reading, after dreaming of Blake and Eva. ...more

This story was simply Amazing!!! There is no other way to describe it. I devoured this book in one sitting and this was not a short story. I felt as if I was living through the characters in this story and although it wasn't an easy or light story, I loved every moment of it because this story felt REAL. My feeling while reading this was REAL. These characters knew the joys and pains of life and this story played with my heart along the w

Forget not to live, to breathe, and to love.

I've been waiting for the conclusion of Blake and Eva for a very LONG TIME.

This book had me on a nerve of a breakdown. The first chapter was very hard for me to read. It shredded my heart in pieces, it literally took me two days to finish it.
I couldn't stop crying. Celeste and her words ripped me apart. What Eva endured in the hands of Damon was awful.
I cried.
I mourned.

This book overwhelmed me in the best possible way. Blake became my book boyfriend instantly with LIVE ME. I was so wrecked by the end of the book I needed more. So now here we are...Blake and Eva’s story continues. And Jace comes along for the ride. As well as a new friend, who is added to the list of Eva’s staunch protectors. Drew’s appeal shines through this book. He NEEDS a book...seriously!!! I fell in love with him too. Grande did an excellent job of setting up the mindset of Eva in the aft ...more

Eva took huge steps in order to bring herself back from rock bottom and defeat her demons. I knew Jace and Blake would be by her side but was surprised by the unexpected friend who really gave her the courage and strength to fight back. I loved seeing her transformation, especially when she finally put to use everything she learned from Drew!

It broke my heart to see Blake and Eva being pulled in different directions. I understood why she did what she did but I hated it. I wanted to scream “Just

Breathe You is the conclusion of Live Me.

I don’t know how to start this review not because I didn’t like it but because it’s AMAZING, well written, and will make you ugly cry.

Blake is my new book boyfriend and will be hard to top. He was there for Angel for anything she needed if it was just a friend when he wanted to be so much more.

Angel (Eva) went through something horrible by someone she should of been able to trust and has kept it locked away and feels as if she can’t tell the people cl

ITS OVER!!!! IT WAS SO WORTH THE WAIT, OMGOODNESS!! I'm legit sobbing right now. It was so PERFECT!!! Every moment was completely nerve-wracking and I loved it! I was sobbing when I finished LIVE ME back in 2016. And every time I read it, I got the same reaction, doubled. It is so satisfying to see justice made; a victim finally redeemed, a story finally brought to light, and the evil-doer hitting rock-bottom.

I've never been so happy in my life. Well, actually I have, but you know what I mean! T

I have been patiently waiting for the conclusion of Angel and Blake's love story and it was totally worth the wait. Breathe You picks up right were Live Me ends. If you love a book about a strong heroine who learns how to stand on her own and also how to to lean on the ones that love you most than grab this book. Eva (Angel) is fierce in book two and even though she has suffered so much in her life she truly comes into her own in this book. Blake as he was in Live me was just perfect. I need a B ...more
