I just finished Every Breath this morning and it turned out to be pretty good. Once I got about half way through I was leary with the direction the book was taking, but by the end it came together nicely.
Hope is in a relationship that she isn't exactly content with. Her boyfriend Josh doesn't seem to be committing and after six years she wonders what their future holds. Her dad has been diagnosed with a debilitating health condition and she doesn't know how much time they have le ...more

Title: Every Breath
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Release date: October 16, 2018
Every Breath had a lot of promise to be a big winner for me, but unfortunately it didn't reach my expectations. Based on the synopsis, it sounded like an emotional ill-fated love story with the potential for a second chance later in life. How long can a dream survive? it poses.
Mistakes were inevitable, and she’d concluded that regrets could impart important lessons in life, if one was willing to learn fro ...more

➽ KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS
In the romantic tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe Nicholas Sparks brings us EVERY BREATH which Is a full length, stand alone romance novel.
Like previous novels by this author he has such an uncanny knack of weaving a magic spell over his readers Every Breath is no different, unique in every way, it drew me in as soon as I started reading it.
In this we’re introduced to forty two year old T ...more
I disliked the 20year fast forward as well.
I’m both disappointed and pleased. I liked it in spots and I disliked it 🤷🏽♀️
One thing I thoroughly enjoyed about this one was Nicholas Sparks’ personal words within the book. It really indicated how moved he was by the true story that inspired him in writing this book. It was lovely. There’s really no other way to put it.
My quick and simple overall: devastatingly beautiful ok so many fronts.
Every Breath is the first Nicholas Sparks book I have read. I wanted to love it but, unfortunately, I was underwhelmed.
The author wants us to believe that Tru and Hope fall passionately in love after spending two days together. It is not entirely improbable, but to me it felt more like two strangers forming a wonderful bond of friendship rather than starting a romance. Any sparks are tepid at best, and the declarations of love come out of left field.
The story is rushed, but it also se ...more
not the kind i was hoping for from nicholas sparks, but it was still a beautiful sappy love story. albeit one that was also too farfetched. i mean, isn't that the case with this author though?? his books seem to always have some kind of tragic irony and a touch of miracle happening inside that sometimes come off a little contrived and overdramatic.

The king of contemporary romance fiction returns with a brand new love story titled, Every Breath. This is a love at first sight classic romance, that sees destiny play a huge role in shaping the lives of two individuals, Tru and Hope. Sparks describes his latest novel as ‘a classic story of lovers long denied’. I think this quote perfectly summarises what you can expect when you pick up Every Breath.
The latest novel from Nicholas Sparks begins with ...more
But maybe that predictability was what I was in the mood for cause I actually really enjoyed this one. Still not sure why I picked it up but hey, I it worked out.

I remember the first Nicholas Sparks novel I ever read. I was in 6th grade (2003) and I picked up A Walk to Remember at Walmart. It was the movie tie in cover, with Mandy Moore and Shane West holding hands— which I still have to this day. I read the whole book that night and begged my mom to buy me the movie, and thankfully, she did. I think I watched tha ...more

First, I have to thank my friend Megan for buying me this book and reading Nicholas Sparks’ books with me this April. After reading A Bend in the Road to start our Nicholas Sparks reading month, I was a little nervous about reading Every Breath. I didn’t know if I would enjoy it as much as I hoped to – maybe my tastes had changed too much.
Luckily, Every Breath captured my attention from the very first page and I simply could not put this book down all day long. It ...more
