"My insides still burned. I considered what I could do to push the torment back into the dark and return to my numb state. I couldn't do it on my own. I needed help. I was desperate." Emma Thomas is hiding. From everything and everyone... including herself. But she can't hide forever. Her past will find her, and her secrets won't remain quiet - not if she wants to be forgiven. Emma learns that honesty can hurt worse than betrayal, and the truth may cost her the only love she's ever known.
This highly anticipated conclusion of The Breathing Series will have listeners holding their breath until the very end.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
I hate cliffhangers but I can honestly say the wait was worth it. This series caused a roller coaster of emotions. So much tragedy & abuse Emma had to endure. She always ended up hurting the ones she loved by pushing them away. My heart hurt for Emma. In the end, when you think that this poor girl will always stay broken she finally decides not to give up. She chooses to breath especially with Evan at her side. He never gave up and together they found their way back to each other. I'm glad the book ended the way it did. To me it was simply perfect.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Just as promised I was holding my breath until the very end. This was a crazy emotional read from beginning to end. I.AM.EMOTIONALLY.SPENT! Stick a fork in me I'm done!
Emma is an exhausting character and difficult to love, but she is consistent in her backwards thinking, annoying and very damaged. (We could never be friends...way too much drama...and then there is all of the crazy!) I felt like I was watching her self destruct, and it was painful. This book is mostly dark and depressing. I felt it was mostly appropriate for this series...but come on...I wanted to slit my wrists with all of the darkness. On a good note...I love the boys in this book...they kept me going. My heart ached for Evan...he must be a saint of sorts to handle all of this...right?
I didn't love this book like the others in the series but I did like the way the series ended. What can I say...I found this book exhausting. Have I mentioned that yet? Overall, I am glad that I read it and that now I have closure. It is a series worth reading.
Again Kate Rudd was fantastic in the delivery of the story
I am glad that I did not listen bad reviews of this book. In this last installment of the series, Emma grew in to her own person. She learned to forgive herself and live/look forward to the future and not in the past. I love Evan. He has always been in love with Emma. I am glad that they worked things out. I like the fact that when I saw each other again, they took things slow and tried to work on what was wrong with their relationship instead of just dive in and get back to where they were. I agreed with other reviews that Emma's friends babied her too much. There's so much of eggshell one can walked on. All in all, this book gave me closure to this series.
Yes, I have a problem..AUDIOBOOKS! I am so addicted stories that make you feel naughty, laugh, cry, or scream at your phone!
OMG!!! This series had my heart and brain fighting each other all over the place! You will want to console her, then slap her, then shake her, laugh out loud and then the tears come. I love books that grab you and this one did! This series held my attention from the very first chapter of "Reason to Breathe" until 15 minutes after I finished "Out of Breathe". I just cant say enough about Kate Rudd either! She was PERFECT for this story!! BRAVO!!
Narrator is best, book is really not worth purchasing. I loved Book 1, then Book 2 was not as good, but good enough to warrant the purchase. But this one feels like the author watched too many soap operas. I'm about 60% into it and will NOT finish it.
EXCELLENT narrator. I just started listening to Enclave and the horrible voice of the narrator made me realize how important it is! I can barely stand to listen; so I really appreciated Kate Rudd's ability in this series.
Maybe Book 1, not the other books at all!
Purchase Book 1 and 2, but I can't recommend this one.
I loved this series! I am so dissapointed to see it end! I am excited to read more by this author, hope Audible will have more by her soon. This is probably the best series I have read since 50 Shades and I would highly recommend it. Not that it has the hot steamy sex scenes of that book, but great story and love story. Definitely worth the credit!!!
It took the entire book before I felt okay about where Emma was going to end up. I love her and Evan's love story. I loved that is wasn't always perfect, and they weren't always together. Honestly it wouldn't have been realistic for Evan to be the only guy Emma was to ever have a relationship with. I'm glad they were a part for a time, but I'm more glad that she realized she wasn't whole without him. I'm glad that they were able to forgive each other and be there for each other. I really got lost in this series. I loved how I felt like I really knew these characters. All of them, and the ending makes this long journey worth while.
A perfect world for me: A huge room with wall to wall bookshelves lined with one inspiring book after another & over sized comfy chairs.
I would listen to this book series over and over again. You can let humanity destroy you or empower you. I was left with a positive, hopeful outlook on life for people who have been abused. Very powerful book! A MUST read for people like me!
Oh I did immediately! Excellent narrator, story, and heart-pounding emotion.
The characters, the relationship.
As great as the rest if the series.
Addictive series, hard to put down. Emotionally draining!! I did laugh a little though.
Having enjoyed the previous books in the series, I wanted to see how the story ended. This final book ended satisfactorily but getting there was TORTUOUS. Honestly, maybe young adults have more patience for the seemingly endless convolutions of teen angst. I forced myself to finish it but didn't enjoy large parts of it.
