Four years ago Kacey Cleary's life imploded when her car was hit by a drunk driver, killing her parents, boyfriend, and best friend. Still haunted by memories of being trapped inside, holding her boyfriend's lifeless hand and listening to her mother take her last breath, Kacey wants to leave her past behind. Armed with two bus tickets, Kacey and her 15-year-old sister, Livie, escape Grand Rapids, Michigan, to start over in Miami. They're struggling to make ends meet at first, but Kacey's not worried. She can handle anything - anything but her mysterious neighbor in apartment 1D.

Trent Emerson has smoldering blue eyes, deep dimples, and perfectly skates that irresistible line between nice guy and bad boy.

    "A great raw story with real dynamic characters "

    You know it's a good story where you come to points in it that feel so real you want to skip it. My heart broke for casey so many times, and for trent. But I love the passion and the beautiful and perfect way that they come together. Great story!

    Story
    "Emotional Rollercoaster!"
    Would you listen to Ten Tiny Breaths again? Why?

    I loved the transformation of Kacey throughout the story!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end, it was perfect! I also loved the part when the truth was revealed, but I won't disclose any details!

    Story
    "Amazing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ten Tiny Breaths to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Elizabeth Louise’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending when she told him she forgave him.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the concept and the story all together. It was a great book.

    Story
    "Great narration!!!"
    If you could sum up Ten Tiny Breaths in three words, what would they be?

    Forgiveness
    Second chance
    Funny


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Louise’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Always good!!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Almost did!

    Story
    "INCREDIBLE! ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!"

    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!

    Story
    "LOVE."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Louise’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to "One Tiny Lie" and found the dialogue to be the same. I would love to read more of her works.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    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.
