Publisher's Summary

Before you knew him as Trent in Ten Tiny Breaths, he was Cole Reynolds - and he had it all. Until one night when he makes a fatal, wrong decision…and loses everything.

When a drunken night out at a Michigan State college party results in the death of six people, Cole must come to terms with his part in the tragedy. Normally, he’d be able to lean on his best friends - the ones who have been in his life since he could barely walk. Only, they’re gone. Worse, there’s the shattered body of a 16-year-old girl lying somewhere in a hospital bed, her entire life ripped from her because of a case of beer and a set of keys.

Everyone assures him that they know it wasn’t intentional, and yet he can’t ignore the weight of their gazes, the whispers behind his back. Nor can he shake the all-consuming guilt he feels every time he thinks of that girl who won’t so much as allow him near her hospital room to apologize. As the months go by and the shame and loneliness festers, Cole begins to lose his grip on what once was important - college, his girlfriend, his future. His life. It’s not until Cole hits rock-bottom that he can begin to see another way out of his personal hell: forgiveness.

And there’s only one person who can give that to him…

Stalking is not sweet

I'll just get this one out there now, and this review may include mild spoilers. This book is about a guy who is so overcome with guilt that he decides to stalk the only other survivor of a car accident he was involved in. He involves himself in her life repeatedly, even going as far as to break into her email account. This is not sweet. Stalking is not sweet. Stalking is not sexy. Stalking is not romantic. Stalking is scary, and awful and it would be nice if authors would stop portraying it as some kind of sign of true love. I really wanted to like this, but I found myself constantly appalled by the lengths this guy goes to so he can stalk his victim. This would be a fantastic prequel to a crime novel but not to a romance.

The narrator is great though. So there's that.

In the Beginning

Cole Reynolds had it all until one crazy night in college he and his friends feeling ten feet tall and bulletproof decide to drive drunk. Before the night is over six people lie dead and the lives of the two survivors will never be the same. Cole will try and make it up to Kacey Cleary the 16 year old victim the only way he can; by watching over her, taking care of her; following in her wake. In the wake of losing her parents, boyfriend and best girlfriend she's become a reckless party girl and Cole becomes her guardian angel. He saves her from several bad situations that she was too stoned and reckless to avoid putting herself into dangerous situations. This novella is a great prequel to the initial K.A. Tucker book Ten Tiny Breaths which was narrated by Kacey. In her wake was Cole's take on the pre Florida Kacey when she was still in Michigan. As usual in this series it's a five star special.

I listened to 10 Tiny Breaths First

Is there anything you would change about this book?

If you happen to read 10 Tiny Breaths, don't go back to this book, which is the prequel. It is redundant and just to much.

Was In Her Wake worth the listening time?

No

Sebastian is always a win

I loved it! Trent's POV was more emotional than TTB! In many ways I wish I listened to this 1st before TTB!

Very Depressing Story

This story was so depressing I could barely get through it. The only good thing about this purchase was the narrator Sebastian York, he is FANTASTIC!!!
I purchased this book because of the high rating that was listed for it and man was that ever WRONG!!! I had to double check what the category this was listed under and I thought it was listed under Romance, Contemporary, but it was NOT, It is listed under Fiction, Chick lit and I never buy ANY books in that category. Very disappointed. I would have returned it but since it was only $4.71 I chose to keep it. Thank goodness it was a short story.

Cole Trent Reynolds (aka Trent Emerson)

I wish there was a way to give extra stars to authors who include dates. ☆☆☆☆☆

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Audible review. Single POV (Cole/Trent). Ten Tiny Breaths series book 1 of 5; novella covering 26APR08 through August 2012 in Cole/Trent's life. Sebastian York did a great job narrating in an average American accent. Unnecessary intro and finalé music, thankfully it's brief and doesn't overlap the narration. Trigger warnings: drunk driving accident leads to the deaths of 6 people in 2 different cars; attempted suicides; drowning death of a baby; death of a toddler by by a car; drug and alcohol abuse.

Cole is a 20 year old football player attending Michigan State University, by all accounts he's a good guy, and is in a 3 year relationship his best friend's little sister. He's out at a house party with his two best friends. Cole had volunteered to be the designated driver but was easily convinced to have a few beers and quickly lost track. He needed to return home because his final exams were scheduled for the next morning. His best friend believed he was sober enough to drive them home. Cole comes to when he hears a female voice telling him he's been in an accident. Cole is quickly taken to the hospital. The next time Cole comes to his mom and dad are with him and he's in pain. When Cole asks about his friends his parents don't have to say it, he realizes they both died. He later finds out that the friend driving was almost double the legal limit and speeding when he crashed into another car. Neither of his friends were wearing their seat belts. The car they crashed into had five passengers: a 16 year old girl who survived accompanied by her boyfriend, best friend and parents, who all perished. Cole struggles to find his footing after he recovers from his injuries. He breaks up with his longtime girlfriend, drops off the football team, quits college, his parents separate and eventually divorce. He comes to hate his name because he continues to hear the woman at the scene calling him by his name and telling him he's been in an accident in his nightmares so he changes it to Trent Emerson (his original middle name and his mother's maiden name). Trent pushes down everything that happened just to function but continues to check on the survivor from the other car from a distance. The last page leaves Trent moving to Florida to watch over the survivor and her sister. JP

Ended mid story where miami story starts. I thought it would be the entire story from his perspective. I was surprised and disappointed by the cut off.
