Breathe

Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island. When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

Publisher's Summary

In the shore town of Sea Breeze, Sadie discovers that fame is nothing in the face of passion. A steamy listen from best-selling author Abbi Glines.

Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

Even though Sadie isn’t impressed by Jax’s fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax, but he fights his attraction: Relationships never work in his world, and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. Yet as the summer stretches on, Jax’s passion leaves him breathless - and Sadie feels like the only source of oxygen.

Can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? One breath at a time, they’re going to find out.....

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    "All sorts of feels"

    I don't typically like rock star books, but I have it a try based on reviews and I'm so glad I did. The performance by Shayna and Kirby was spot on and the story was so sweet and emotional. Can't wait to continue on with this series.

    Story
    "Story gets a B+ but the presentation..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better narrator for one thing. It threw me off the story. Now if I just focus on the story it's rather...basic. The main character, Sadie, is interesting and strong but the others are rather dimensional. The dialog is also a bit shallow but I didn't expect too much. Go into this with low expectations and it will be a good read.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something more fantasy/sci-fi I think...maybe.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Okay so I wanted to write a review just because of the performances. Kirby Heyborne is a bit apathetic and dry, when he tries to put on a southern accent...well I've heard better but also not the WORST ever.
    Shayna Thibodeaux is really was the biggest obstacle for me. She does this William Shatner-esque pausing narration that is very annoying. I've been through a lot of audio books and have found what I like in a narrator and what I don't like. Shayna sounds like she's reading from the page and performing, almost forcing it, rather than BEING the character and living the words.
    Now don't get me wrong, someone will love the way Thibodeaux and Heyborne narrate but it just really isn't my thing.

    "MADE ME WANT TO SAY AWWWW!"

    Abbi Glines knows how to give good teen angst! This was a really sweet story, and very much akin to an "After School Special". I'm a fan of Glines' Rosemary Beach series, and so far, Sea Breeze is definitely comparable. My biggest issue is with the male narrator...Ugh, not a great choice. Narrator aside, it was well written, and the overall story was good enough to make me explore the remainder of the series, teen drama and all!

    "Sweet but missede something in the story"

    A classic story about a poor girl falling in love and getting the rich and famous guy. Some parts are just to obvious. It was sweet but something is missing in the story - perhaps some details about the past and/or details connecting the story together. The narrating is outstanding though.

    "Breathe"

    Breathe is an excellent YA novel. Both narrators were very good and sounded like the age of main characters.

    Jax is a superstar rockstar who likes to get away from his fans etc., and spends his summer on an island in Alabama when he meets one of his housemaid,17 year old Sadie, who is less than impressed with the rockstar.

    As time goes by Sadie gets to know the true Jax, that even Jax's younger brother notices the positive chance.

    This novel shows again the lack of privacy is given for the price of fame. It sad that if someone is sick or injured fame does not protect them as the laws protect the lay persons.

    "Breathe is the start of an epic series!"

    I've listened to this series several times, I love the writing! Abbi Glines is one of my favorite authors.
    Jax and Sadie are great characters to start a series with. Everyone loves the idea of being able to snag a rock star, even if you are just the maid :)
    Sadie is the best female lead, no one could ever hate her. She is the perfect character to snag the hot unobtainable rocker.
    Add this one to your cart, and get ready to clear your schedule to finish the series as well!

    "A NICE YA NOVEL"

    I bought this book after reading the "Too Far" series without realizing it was in the YA genre. For me, this book was a good "in between" book when you're too burnt out of the more dark, ansty, drama-filled reads. It's evident that this is an earlier work by Abbi Glines. I liked Jax Stone, the teen, rock star sensation. He reminded me of a Jonas brother as he came across as an All-American good guy who was tired of the superficial, highly publicized celebrity lifestyle seeking something more in life. Well, he certainly finds it! While vacationing in Sea Breeze, Alabama in his luxury family home, he catches sight of the very beautiful Sadie White who is in his employment as a maid. Sadie is somewhat of an "old soul" as she is very mature for her age of 17 years. She has had to grow up quickly living with an irresponsible single mother, who at the moment is pregnant. Sadie takes on this job to support her household.

    The secondary characters are endearing. I felt bad for Marcus (Sadie's work colleague) as he experienced unrequited love from Sadie. I enjoyed Ms. Mary, the head of the service personnel, and I also liked Marcus' younger sister Amanda.

    The love story between Jax and Sadie was sweet and not too steamy. Because the leads were so young, this book felt unfinished, even when you knew they would end up together at the end. There isn't a real solution since Sadie is still living under another person's roof (since she's under age) and both Sadie and Jax can only dream and plan about their future together. I understand their story is further developed and explored in the books that follow. I'm not sure if I will continue with the series as it's a bit too tame for my liking. I may continue when I'm in an "in between" phase again, but this is more due to my own preferences and not that there was anything wrong with this book or series.

    Narrator: I really liked Shayna Thibodeaux's narration. She brought an ease and casualty that radiated through and made this one easy listen. I thought Kirby Heybourne did well also.

    "First Audio book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Breathe to be better than the print version?

    I have to say I prefer to read a book rather than listen to it only because the voices I imagine in my head aren't the ones in the audio book~ but that is no fault of anyones. I think Jax's voice wasn't manly enough. I liked Sadies voice just fine though.


    What three words best describe Kirby Heyborne and Shayna Thibodeaux ’s voice?

    Kirby Heyborne- young, smooth, green
    Shayna Thibodeaux - young, innocent, friendly
