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.

Yes, but I'd have to wait a while because it's a pretty emotional story. Really enjoyed the performance. It's a sad, happy, funny, romantic, sad, happy story.
The growth and emotional journey that Kacey went through.
A lot of her guys sounded similar, but at least they sounded like guys! Loved her entire performance - just the right amount of sassy for Kacey.
Yes, (but it's a spoiler) so I'll leave it at that.
I definitely needed some Kleenex a time or two and laughed out loud on more than one occasion.
I really enjoyed this book, although it has left me a little sad - I really grew attached to the characters, so I'm glad that I can move right on to "One Tiny Lie".
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 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.
This was another book that took me awhile to get interested in. I really liked the story but the narrator took away from it for me. I feel like I missed something since so many people really loved this book & it was just a little better than average for me. It was a heartwarming story, but not my favorite.
I was surprised by how superficial this book was. The story intrigued me at first, but the characters left me cold, were annoying most of the time, and the story didn't have much depth after all.
I love to make you think about life and what we take for granted. Before you can ask for forgiveness we have to forgive our selves.
when the parents of Trent show up and they revell who he really is and what he has been doing behind the scene to watch over C
I'm married with one daughter, just finished my BS in Health Science, and I'm a choosy fiction/romance/paranormal/anything spellbinding listener during my commute.
This novel really took me by surprise- not only was it true to the struggles of life after traumatic events, but it keeps the reader entertained with the stories of romance and fresh starts.
The narrator did a good job, and this writing style was very pleasurable to listen to. The characters are richly unique, and the story of their struggles and joys are well worth spending the credit.
