Reason to Breathe Synopsis

"No one tried to get involved with me, and I kept to myself. This was the place where everything was supposed to be safe and easy. How could Evan Mathews unravel my constant universe in just one day?"

In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection while pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises - not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth - but at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.

Reason to Breathe is an electrifying page turner from start to finish, a unique tale of life-changing love, unspeakable cruelty, and one girl’s fragile grasp of hope.

Reason to Breathe (Breathing, #1)Reason to Breathe by Rebecca Donovan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series gave me a Reason to Breathe through reading and I haven't been Out of Breath to stop yet!

Reread both in 07/08/2012 & 07/03/2013. This series stayed with me for a very long time and I will definitely be rereading again very soon. I just had started reading a couple of months ago and this was my first series to where I enjoyed it so much that I couldn't stop. I read a lot when I was in elementary and JR High but didn't start picking back up till this year.

This book gets me everytime, full of emotion, tragic foster parent abuse, with unexpected twists. Pick this up today and find out more about Evan, Emma, Sara and the gang. I would recommend this series to YA and Teens 16 and up.

Barely Breathing Synopsis:

Emma’s struggle with an abusive home life came to a heart pounding conclusion in the final chapters of "Reason to Breathe". Now everyone in Weslyn knows Emma’s secret, but Carol can’t hurt Emma anymore. Some are still haunted by the horror of that night, and some must face the repercussions of their choices. Fans of Rebecca Donovan’s debut novel will discover there’s still much to learn about Emma’s life.

Barely Breathing (Breathing, #2)Barely Breathing by Rebecca Donovan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"I begged for you to breath with every breath I gave to you. I kept pleading for you to breathe over and over again. And then....you did."

Barely Breathing is the continuation of Reason to Breathe and starts from the major cliffhanger that gave me a heart attack. This book will show you how Emma was kidnapped and the outcome of the kidnapping plus there will definitely be some up and down moments with the relationship of Evan and Emma. You will also get more in depth of a relationship with Emma and her mother. Oh, and don't forget Jonathan. I know it is wrong of me but there was something about him that intrigued me that I needed more. I heard he may have a book himself for his story soon.

Again, beautiful story that literally kept me on the edge of my seat and was barely breathing.

She is broken, and the only way that she’ll be whole again is through forgiveness. Emma must find a way to forgive herself and recognize her own worth before she can receive the love she deserves. This final installment will have readers holding their breath until the very last page.
