Publisher's Summary

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.

    Canadian girl in Kansas, love audible, books on kindle or kindle fire, and old fashioned books! I enjoy fiction most, mostly books with strong female leads. Favourite authors: Diana Gabaldon, Stephen King, Jodi Picoult, Wally Lamb, Pat Conroy, Andre Dubus III, Lisa Genova, many more!

    Story
    "An Average Smut Book... Nothing New"

    I bought Ten Tiny Breaths because I was compelled with the story and because it had such great reviews. I was so totally disappointed.

    It all starts okay. A horrible accident which kills Kacey's whole family except for she and her younger sister spawns the first foster father who immediate tries to take advantage of Kacey's only living relative. Kacey packs up and moves her sister to Miami to start fresh- to forget, and to forge a life for them.

    While they are there they meet a nice neighbour who happens to be a stripper. Kacey takes a job at the strip bar which has a pretty 'good guy' owner. Kacey's little sister babysits for the stripper- and all seems well. Until of course, they start getting involved in tumultuous relationships and people who live a much more wild lifestyle than Kacey is used to. And of course, she meets a guy that she really wants to open up to- but just can't after all that's happened.

    The story is cliche, the characters are predictable, and it's hard to listen to without falling asleep or getting bored. Too much sex and detail made me feel like I was reading another '50 Shades.' And I don't think that honouring women who have made very poor choices in life makes for a good story line.

    I know this review won't be popular, but I just didn't like Ten Tiny Breaths. I think it's an over-hyped smut book and I didn't enjoy it at all.

    2 stars- the narrator is good.

    Very good story, worth the listen. Certainly a K.A. Tucker fan now, looking forward to book two, three and four.

    "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
    "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.
