it was ok
bookshelves: not-a-fan

Cliché and eye-roll inducing

I wouldn’t say “Breathe” wasn’t at all enjoyable. It was tolerable, but other than Sadie’s irresponsible pregnant mother, the storyline felt like another Twilight fan fiction without any 50 Shades sex. Without sex, period. Heck, there wasn’t even a kiss until well after the characters had been established a romantic relationship.

Sadie talked about how she loved Jax after practically hanging out with him one time, which was where one of my many eye rolls came in. For Jax’s part, he had that whole “I need to protect you and possess you” vibe going. And Sadie had the cliche “I’m poor, but please don’t fuss over me” vibe. And of course, there was a scene where Jax buys her a dress and shoes, somehow knowing her size.

I know this relationship dynamic is common in romance, especially in erotica, which this is not by any means even though it’s synopsis claims it’s “steamy”, but I’m not a fan of this whole “I can’t live without you” toxic message especially considering Sadie is only 17.
