Reason to Breath (Breathing #1) by Rebecca Donovan + Review


“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.

SOUNDTRACK FOR REASON TO BREATHE 



Haven't heard the news about Reason To Breathe?!

Reason to Breathe is being made into a movie! But not just one- THREE!
The producers and I discussed securing funding for the Reason to Breathe Movie Series today.

We're going to need YOUR help with a portion of it. The investors will supply the rest, but they need a little convincing that you want this movie. That shouldn't be difficult, right?

I know it can be scary when one of your favorite books gets translated to film, but I can assure you this WILL BE the book come to life. Emma's story is too important to all of us... That is why I am one of the screenwriters, as well as a producer. I have a creative say in every step. And you will be able to witness each phase of its creation!

Soon I will be revealing our Kickstarter campaign with all of the production details. You will be a very important part of this entire process from the VERY beginning. A film experience like this has never been done before. It's going to change everything...

Optimism seeps from every pore of my body. I truly believe what’s supposed to happen… will. In that regard, I don’t know how to give up; it’s not part of my biological make-up.

I’m a passionate (and some would say overly enthusiastic) individual. I learn by doing (and have been burned more times than I’d like to admit). But I will always throw my entire self into whatever I do–fail or succeed.

I think this is evident when I write. I leave nothing behind, and spill it all out onto the pages. I give it all to my readers – love it or hate it.

The path I’m on is very often my own. Sometimes I veer off at the sight of something more interesting or captivating and get caught in the vines and thorns in order to experience the beauty and intrigue others often pass by. And I always meet the most interesting people along the way…

REASON TO BREATHE REVIEW:

Not knowing that your last day may be Now, Tomorrow, a Week from now or maybe a Month from now. There are a million possibilities. Your life might end through: Drugs, alcohol, a job, car accident, murder, or even any forms of abuse. How would you spend it?

Emma survives one day at a time. Not fully understanding the lengths of her situation. All she knows is to be invisible, no dating, no parties, no friends but Sara, and to try to stay clear from Carol. Counting down the days till she leaves her past behind and start fresh.

Emma is brave and honorable but it blinds her. She may feel like she’s doing the right thing by keeping her secret but in all she’s hurting everyone around her including herself. Reason To Breathe was an amazing title for this book seeing as how she finds ways to keep going and finding people who care for her to help her keep moving on.

Sara is amazing she is a friend I wish to have seeing as how she genuinely cares for Emma and is willing to do the right thing but will also keep her friends secret and help Emma live a good life.

Evan… He’s dreamy and perfect. He really cares for Emma and loves how different she is from the girls who just throws themselves at him or any other guy to get attention and be popular. His character of how adventurous, carefree, nurturing, and funny is his made me fall in love with him. I'm glad he sought out Emma and kept getting under her skin.

This book is typical high school crowds with real life problems in the mix. I loved everything about this story and the life problems of how abuse can be. This isn’t a typical love story of how two teens find love but how life can be short and you should never let things hold you back because you deserve to be happy. But also that if you are being hurt to tell someone. I was definitely inspired by this book even though it was a tough story but after reading this series a second time I will continue to read more of Rebecca’s stories to come!

Book Tour: Dark And Stormy Knight by Nina Mason



Title: Dark and Stormy Knight
Author: Nina Mason
Release Date: January 5, 2016
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Genre: Romance
Format: Ebook

She’ll risk everything for their love—even her life.

Aspiring screenwriter Gwyn Morland is ready for her big break. That means securing the film rights to elusive author Lady Ruthven’s acclaimed novel—which means traveling to Scotland. It’s a trip timid Gwyn isn’t prepared for, and her fears seem justified when her tour bus careens over a cliff outside of Castle Glenarvon. But the plot thickens when Gwyn is rescued from the brink of death by a handsome and mysterious stranger…

Leith MacQuill is not only the writer behind Lady Ruthven’s novel, but a shape-shifting faery knight bearing a tragic curse: the woman he gives his heart to will die. Saving Gwyn proves to be a dangerous choice when he finds himself falling for her the longer she stays in the castle. Not even his usual BDSM role-playing games are enough to thwart the intense desire they feel for each other. But to stay together, Gwyn and Leith must embark on a dangerous mission into Avalon, the realm of the faeries. Will their love be strong enough to conquer the curse? Or will Gwyn’s new life be stolen from her before it’s even begun?

Book Blitz: Destroyer Rising by Eric Asher


Destroyer Rising
Eric Asher
((Vesik #5) )

Publication date: December 29th 2015
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy
It’s been three years since we failed Vicky, the child once known as Elizabeth Gray. 
Three years she’s lived as something not quite alive, but far from dead. 
Her path grows darker, even as she spreads light and hope through a tortured world. 
The Destroyer has come to claim her, and I can’t fail her again. 
I won’t. 
Elizabeth’s fate lies in the Burning Lands, and we will storm the gates.




EXCERPT:
It felt good, right even, to be stocking and straightening the shelves again. I pulled a snow globe, of all things, from the top shelf and frowned at the broken Gateway Arch inside. We’d need to return that to the supplier. I shook the glass orb and watched the silver pieces swirl around the cityscape, clicking and tumbling as they went. A vision flashed through my mind, a torrent of power unleashed by the Old Man and the Fae, sending entire cities into oblivion. I shivered and my knuckles whitened on the base of the globe. Falias had appeared in that maelstrom, before the souls had swarmed Vicky and before I had peeled them off her with my necromancy.
Vicky.
I was sure Happy would have let me know if he’d learned anything new about Vicky, but I closed my eyes and pushed my aura out anyway. The experience didn’t give me a sense of travel like it used to. The slightest effort told me where the bear was.
“Have you heard anything?” I asked.
The panda raised his head and looked directly at me from his perch inside the birdcage. From Mike? His voice boomed in his panda form. I have not heard from the Smith in days.
“Do you think he’s okay?”
I can’t fully express the unnerving oddity of having a ghost panda laugh at you. Happy’s skull-rattling chuckle faded. He is a fire demon within the Burning Lands. I am certain he is well.
“How’s Vicky?” The question died on my lips and turned to a scream as golden light blinded me.
Damian! Damian, answer me!
The bear’s voice cut through the storm of screams and terror in my head for only a moment, and then chaos reigned. Gold turned to ash, and ash to darkness, as a monstrosity that could not be real blasted my mind. Hunched and looming, with long, silver teeth. Its entire body squirmed and writhed, promising death to all who dared near it.
Light swallowed the awful vision. The nightmare of a thousand dying souls replaced it. The fire, the loss, the light. I didn’t know if it was flames or tears that burned my face, but it felt like my skull was coming apart at the seams. And then the vision was gone. Only darkness remained.


Eric is a former bookseller, guitarist, and comic seller currently living in Saint Louis, Missouri. A lifelong enthusiast of books, music, toys, and games, he discovered a love for the written word after being dragged to the library by his parents at a young age. When he is not writing, you can usually find him reading, gaming, or buried beneath a small avalanche of Transformers.

Have you ever wished you could have something so bad, even though you knew it was forbidden?

Jonathan Gates was just that—forbidden. He was everything I could ever want in a man: charming, a great listener, open-minded, and funny. It also didn't hurt that he was easy on the eyes.

We'd been through a lot together: breakups, makeups, firsts, lasts, and anything else you can imagine. I was once told he was my soul mate, but I refused to believe that.

I didn't want to love him. I didn't want to fall for him because...he was my best friend!




But I did, and I fell for him hard. I was in love with my best friend, and it was time he knew how I really felt.
