A Beautifully told story which keeps your attention until the very last word. You'll experience every emotion from sadness through laughter throughout the telling of the story. Narrator was superb!
Such a good story of love, loss, forgiveness & friendship. Kind of slow at times but It was good
Canadian girl in Kansas, love audible, books on kindle or kindle fire, and old fashioned books! I enjoy fiction most, mostly books with strong female leads. Favourite authors: Diana Gabaldon, Stephen King, Jodi Picoult, Wally Lamb, Pat Conroy, Andre Dubus III, Lisa Genova, many more!
I bought Ten Tiny Breaths because I was compelled with the story and because it had such great reviews. I was so totally disappointed.
It all starts okay. A horrible accident which kills Kacey's whole family except for she and her younger sister spawns the first foster father who immediate tries to take advantage of Kacey's only living relative. Kacey packs up and moves her sister to Miami to start fresh- to forget, and to forge a life for them.
While they are there they meet a nice neighbour who happens to be a stripper. Kacey takes a job at the strip bar which has a pretty 'good guy' owner. Kacey's little sister babysits for the stripper- and all seems well. Until of course, they start getting involved in tumultuous relationships and people who live a much more wild lifestyle than Kacey is used to. And of course, she meets a guy that she really wants to open up to- but just can't after all that's happened.
The story is cliche, the characters are predictable, and it's hard to listen to without falling asleep or getting bored. Too much sex and detail made me feel like I was reading another '50 Shades.' And I don't think that honouring women who have made very poor choices in life makes for a good story line.
I know this review won't be popular, but I just didn't like Ten Tiny Breaths. I think it's an over-hyped smut book and I didn't enjoy it at all.
2 stars- the narrator is good.
Say something about yourself!
yes, it was written with such thought and understanding.
How it took you from seeing two people broken and finding an understanding of why life is the way it is and bringing them together.
On the beach when trent came back to her.
Storm, she was so determined to find a way for Casey to be healed.
Love the emotions and feelings this writer puts in her books. Can't stop listening to her books once I start.
Yes I would. This story was beautiful and tragic, but uplifting by the time you get to the end. I really enjoyed all the characters and can't wait to see them pop up in other books by K.A. Tucker!
I loved the transformation of Kacey throughout the story!
The end, it was perfect! I also loved the part when the truth was revealed, but I won't disclose any details!
I liked that in the end she didn't just choose the guy because that was what was expected, she did what she felt like she needed to do.
I loved how you knew what happened to her throughout most of the book, but every time she told more of the story you were surprised each time.
The ending when she told him she forgave him.
I loved the concept and the story all together. It was a great book.
The memory the heroin had from her mother to "take ten tiny breaths".... it made sense to me as we all carry good and or bad memories from mothers and they stick to us....no matter what....and one day they make sense.
I had this book in my wish list for the longest time. I just kept thinking it was way too deep for me from what I read in others reviews. Maybe even a little too sappy. I didn't want to read something that would just depress me and this seemed to be way too depressing. I was totally wrong, granted it has many sad and very deep parts to it, but the author found the perfect mix of laughter and tears. This was an incredible story I am so glad I finally listened. More than worth the credit!
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. It's the perfect amount of chick lit and drama without being overly one or the other. There's a nice twist to it and the plot isn't incredibly predictable.
I don't think I had a favorite. I liked how all of the characters interacted and it was quick, sharp wit that was funniest. None of the dialogue sounded forced.
I listened to "One Tiny Lie" and found the dialogue to be the same. I would love to read more of her works.
YES! There aren't really any slow parts to this one. "One Tiny Lie" had a little more slowness, but not much. I found myself tuning in late at night when I should probably be heading to bed, but I just couldn't wait to figure out what was gonna happen next!
Definitely worth trying. This book is good for 20-somethings who are caught between full out erotic novels and teeny bopper romances. It's a good, quick listen/read that I would definitely listen to again.
