Just Remember to Breathe

 Just Remember to Breathe
Charles Sheehan-Miles

Alex Thompson's life is following the script. A pre-law student at Columbia University, she's focused on her grades, her life and her future. The last thing she needs is to reconnect with the boy who broke her heart.

Dylan Paris comes home from Afghanistan severely injured and knows that the one thing he cannot do is drag Alex into the mess he's made of his life.

When Dylan and Alex are assigned to the same work study program and are forced to work side by side, they have to make new ground rules to keep from killing each other.

The only problem is, they keep breaking the rules.

The first rule is to never, ever talk about how they fell in love.

When I first read the blurb for Just Remember to Breathe, I knew that it had to be the book I had been waiting for.
Just Remember to Breathe was different, and in very many ways. The most profound way being that every so often I would have to remind myself that this wasn't my story written by someone who knew it.

This was fiction, and it was amazing.

The story grabs hold of you and does not let you go. I cried, I laughed, and I cried a little more.

When I turned to the last page, I was astounded. It was over. I wanted more, so much more. I had become completely invested in the world that Charles created, and I wanted...needed to know how the story would continue. Mostly, I wanted to hug Alex and Dylan. Watching, or reading as it were, the struggles of a wounded warrior and the woman who loved him was difficult. Here's why...

I understand this book.

I know this book.

I have lived this book.

Having said that, I must tell you that Just Remember to Breathe is, hands down, my FAVORITE book of 2012. This book is too good to pass up, and I beg of you, please read it. You may find yourself somewhere inside its pages too.
