After a terrible car accident destroys her life as she knew it, 20-year-old Kacey escapes to Florida, where she encounters an irresistible man determined to capture her wounded heart.
Just breathe, Kacey. Ten tiny breaths. Seize them. Feel them. Love them.
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. Hardened by her tragic past, Kacey is determined to keep everyone at a distance, but their mutual attraction is undeniable and Trent is determined to find a way into Kacey's guarded heart - even if it means revealing an explosive secret that could shatter both of their worlds.

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
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.
When it comes to books, I don't think fiction always as to be fiction, especially in the grip of a gifted writer.
This story is heart breaking and real. I have to concede the kind of tragedy presented in this story is bred from one of those top five fears, it makes you think “if this were me….” Elizabeth Louise performance puts you right into Kacey’s head. You get the emotions the author is presenting, and you understand them. I personally wasn't moved to cry, but I did connect with the wounded heart. The supporting characters were well developed and awesome. Thumbs up K.A. Tucker! The Publisher’s Summary is enough describe the story without completely giving it away, though seriously I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to guess the “explosive secret”. It’s a quick listen, I started and finished it within the same day. The price was under my $13 dollar credit use limit, so I purchased out right, and I do not regret it.
