“1. I’m brilliant 2. I’m charming 3. I’m hung like a thoroughbred 4. I’ve stopped all philandering 5. I’m highly skilled, as you’ve learned the other night. P.S. Stop staring at my hands. I know what you want me to with them.”
The good: Fast, easy read. Plot was decent and characters were fairly likable separately.
The bad: Had some typical, common elements that I tend to see in New Adult books. The main two things though that turned me off the most were the love triangle and repeated cheating. Love triangles make me anxious and stressed while cheating pisses me off really bad.
"Ten Tiny Breaths" had a lot of potential for me BUT... even though I liked the plot and the characters individually, I didn't like Ashton and Livie together. Their relationship was a constant back and forth whiplash in the face and their cheating was the nail in the coffin in my book. I can't stand characters who don't know what they want or if they do, they're too afraid or chicken sh*t to go and pursue it. Gah, I SWEAR I was practically like this during the entity of the story:
HOW DISAPPOINTING SINCE I LOVED "TEN TINY BREATHS" TO PIECES!!
“Life has a funny way of creating it's own tests. It throws curve balls that make you do and think and feel things that are in direct conflict with what you had planned and don't allow you to operate in terms of black and white.”
