    1. I have two copies of this book on my bookshelf. I only read one of them and I really, really loved it. But I felt bad that I was neglecting the other copy, so I decided to read it too, but I started with the last word and read the whole book backwards. I wouldn't recommend doing that, it doesn't really make much sense. And it takes longer to read the book back to front than it does front to back, because our brains aren't used to working in reverse. If you read this book, which I think you shoul [...]

    2. "Listen,are you breathing just a little and calling it a life?"How long has it been since you've read a fairytale?

She was a girl with auburn hair and light blue eyes - the princess of our story.She lived in happy times, in a happy palace of warmth, emotions, and sunshineBut o [...]

    3. This has been a long month. In truth, I will admit to having finished two novels… including this one. This has never happened before, and I hope it will never happen again. I was about to finish a third book, but Jurassic Park’s last hundred pages just don’t make me feel as excited as the previous ones.Anyway, enough blabbering. Ten Tiny Breaths has been on my ‘‘New Adult to Read before I Die’’ list for a year before I saw it on sale on Bookoutlet and thought, ‘‘meh, why not? [...]

    9. This book was a fucking mess. There was NOTHING about it that I enjoyed. The main character was a bitch, the entire book's premise was unrealistic and disgusting, the romance was dry, rushed, and unrealistic, there was slut shaming, etc. NOTHING in this book made sense. I am appalled someone read this and went "!!!! wow!!!!! let's publish this!!!!!" the storyline was so predictable and cheesy and the relationship was SO gross and toxic, and the entire construction of this book was a trainwreck. [...]

    10. This was another read in which I was doused with reader hype before I had a chance to pick it up. When that's the case, I try not to expect much. Actually, I prefer to enter a book with little to no expectations. Expectations tend to taint my experience. However, if you look up synonyms for taint you'll find the word infect. There is no doubt that I was infected by Ten Tiny Breaths from the very first moment. What blew my mind was that this book was a fast paced easy read despite the trauma, hea [...]

    16. Initial reaction: I think most people know from my status updates on this that I didn't like this book, but I think reflecting upon the work on a number of different levels, it's more than just one element or the measure that this fell into many New Adult cliches. This book really got under my skin on how poorly it was written, how poorly it treats some very weighted, but very real issues (PTSD, depression, etc.) and how it manipulates dramatic scenarios to the point that none of it felt real. T [...]

Kacey has been through a lot. After losing her parents, best friend and boyfriend in a terrible acc [...]

    18. “Just breathe,” my mom would say. “Ten tiny breaths…Seize them. Feel them. Love them.”What the hell does a tiny breath do? Why not a deep breath? Why not three or five or twenty? I’d scream and she’d simply smile her little smile. I didn’t understand then.I do now. This isn’t your average love story.This isn’t about how a beautiful girl meets the beautiful boy and then they go off into the sunset and live a beautiful life.You’re going to cry. And you’re going to scream. A [...]

    20. My Kacey and TrentFantastic book! I was in a huge book hangover from my last read and I was worried that whatever I read next would be difficult, but Ten Tiny Breaths was just what I needed.It was a really easy read. I flew through it in about twelve hours and it was relatively pain free.The characters were great. Trent was impossible not to fall in love with from the very beginning. He was sexy and seductive, with his panty dropping laundromat introductions I was hooked.I think I'm going to fal [...]

    21. Final rating: 4.75/5 stars “I want to make you smile. For real. Always. We’re going to go for dinners, and see movies, and walk on the beach. We’ll go hang-gliding, or bungee jumping, or whatever you want to do. Whatever makes you smile and laugh more.” His fingers toy with my bottom lip. “Let me make you smile.” Wow. Wow. Wow. At first, i wasn't impressed with this book. I didn't connect with the main character - in fact, she pissed me off. I didn't find the story interesting, felt [...]

I got denied a reader copy of this book waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the Fall of ’13 and promptly forgot all about it. Then a few weeks ago I was stalking her Facebook page noticed Tarryn Fisher had just read/recommended He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker. Of course since I had used up all of my librarian requests making [...]

    25. This gets 4 **** bright stars from me!! TEN TINY BREATHS by K.A TUCKER is a New Adult novel that is beautifully written, emotional and ends up as a feel good read which I thought was quite good! To be honest I didn't even realize that there was even such a genre as New Adult, I had to google it! This was definitely a page turner and extremely hard to put down.I am following my new review format for this read as mostly all of my points of a complete reading experience do apply for this one. Usual [...]

    27. Reviewed by: Hello Beautiful Book BlogPassionate story with twists along the way. Must read for new adult romance fans. This author ranks with some of the best.Just breathe, Kacey. Ten tiny breaths. Seize them. Feel them. Love them.My first book by K.A. Tucker. I always like to start at the beginning with an author when I can. That way you can see how far they’ve come as an artist. Am I alone in that or does everyone like to do that?This starts out as your typical romance. Girl moves to new ci [...]

    28. ♦ Reread September 2014 Right from the start you're thrown into some heavy nightmare that turns out to be the reality of what happened to Kacey. She was involved in a car wreck that took the lives of her parents, her boyfriend and her best friend. The grief is so thick and so all consuming that I couldn't understand how Kacey could function. The ball was really dropped as far as getting her some help that she desperately needed and that begins the process. It was interesting to see the things [...]

    29. 5 Stars!Loved this book! I was up all night reading this one because I needed to finish it. “Take ten tiny breaths. Seize them. Feel them. Love them.”That's what Kacey's mom used to tell her to do when things got tough. Kacey doesn't understand whatever her mom was trying to tell her. Nothing will help her right now. Ten tiny breaths are defiantly not going to make things better. Kacey is fine being the mean, angry and sarcastic girl. She doesn't need or want anything in her life except her [...]

    30. Wow - must say this one was very good. So many talented new authors out there now. Saw where it was going to go while reading it but still did not take away anything from the story. Loved the main characters. Poor Kacey, trying to be a tough nut. Trent, what's not to love about him and of course the extended "family" - Storm, Mia . Think we might get Livie's story at some stage - Hopefully. It was sad, happy, funny, sad but it got there in the end. Just breathe!
