I just know that I see promise in this author and keep hoping to see the potential come to fruition. It's as if I'm standing on the outside of a very cool house and I'm fumbling with a huge ring of keys, hoping to find the right one to fit the door's lock.
I saw Breathe mentioned in another review as a type of Cinderella story and to this, I will agree. The poor, hard-working girl meets her handsome prince, who rescues her from her dull existence. The story was a cute retelling in that aspect. I like rock star stories, so it was a no-brainer that I'd want to try out Breathe. This is what knocked the rating down for me : "You're my These past two weeks it's been as if you control my breathing.

How old are you again? Get back to me in 10 years on this. Mainly it had to do with the age of the characters, but I'd also note that there are ways to show intense love through action and interaction without having to resort to declarations of how someone is your sole reason for existence, which feels sappy and melodramatic. I highly recommend reading Because of Low right after this. It's a sequel to Breathe. It centers mainly on Marcus, but Jax and Sadie are in there too. Don't pass it up, it's all kinds of HOT!!
View all 72 comments. Breathe by Abbi Glines is the first book of the new adult contemporary romance Sea Breeze series. Sadie White finds herself having to take over her mother's job and bring in the money to take care of both of them with her mother pregnant. Sadie goes to the mansion her mothers works at to begin work and finds she is working for Jax Stone, a hot teen rocker. Of course this leads to Sadie and Jax being attracted and starting a romance.
I actually liked Sadie in this one, couldn't help but feel sorr Breathe by Abbi Glines is the first book of the new adult contemporary romance Sea Breeze series. I actually liked Sadie in this one, couldn't help but feel sorry she was pushed to be the adult and mother her own mother. It also touches on some very real issues towards the end so I thought this one was good overall. For more reviews please visit https: Sadie White had to grow up fast. Her mother has never been one to act like an adult.
It's Sadie's job to look after her. Pregnant with her second child, Jessica isn't about to own up to her responsibilities. However, someone has to pay the bills and sending Sadie to work in her place seemed like a good idea.
Working as a domestic servant for a wealthy family, Sadie never in her wildest dreams expected it to be the house rockstar Jax Stone spends his summer at, trying to escape his hectic lifestyl Sadie White had to grow up fast.
Working as a domestic servant for a wealthy family, Sadie never in her wildest dreams expected it to be the house rockstar Jax Stone spends his summer at, trying to escape his hectic lifestyle. He soon starts showing interest in Sadie, for she's like no one he's ever met before.
Can their growing love withstand the fact that their lives couldn't be more different? Jax is adored by millions, while Sadie never even had friends. Her world revolves around her demanding mother's needs. I was in the mood for a sweet YA romance and Breathe seemed to be the perfect choice. Unfortunately I soon came to realize that I was wrong in assuming so. It didn't take me long to develop a fierce hatred of Sadie's mother.
No child deserves to have a father, who isn't in the picture - not giving a crap - and a mother, who has no qualms about taking her kid's childhood away.
I didn't understand how Sadie could still love her. I had such a hard time believing it.
Sure, she's her mom, but surely I'd become resentful and bitter. I was siked to read this book. The story sounded awesome. Bummer that the hero's name was the only thing I liked about him. I'm a sucker for blue eyes, but not so much when attached to an arrogant ass and that's the best way to describe Jax. What probably should've appeared gentlemanly, I found appalling.
He was aloof and overly confident. His hoity toity way of speaking drove me up the wall. It was creepy. Once he began spewing confessions of love I was done. Don't get me started on these awful song lyrics. Can you say sleezeball? He wasn't sweet, let alone perfect boyfriend material - no, he seemed to be obsessed with Sadie, rather than what I'd call being in love. Sadly, there IS such a thing as too much fluffy romance. The worst, I fell head over heels for another character.
Marcus, too, worked as a servant for the Stone's and befriended Sadie right away. Such a sweetheart! He made her feel welcome from the very start. If the roles had been reversed - if Jax had Marcus' personality - we would've been talking 5 stars.
The way it was made no sense to me. Marcus as opposed to Jax wasn't laying it on thick and made sure to be a good friend. I felt beyond bad for him. The poor guy fell in love with Sadie, but his feelings weren't returned.
They would've made a sweet couple. I'm kind of surprised that so many readers gave it a good rating. Maybe it is the perfect read for a 14 year-old? I did like the general idea of the storyline and of course Marcus the good friend.

Jul 16, Katrina Passick Lumsden rated it did not like it. Yet another YA romance that has managed to garner far more positive reviews than it deserves. I don't expect much from these books, but sympathetic characters are kind of important, and the only characters I could bring myself to sympathize with at all were the peripheral characters NOT Marcus, I didn't like him much, either.
Mary was sweet and unassuming and the gardener forgot his name already could have been amazing, but he was underutilized. Sadie is a young girl who's had to grow up Yet another YA romance that has managed to garner far more positive reviews than it deserves. Sadie is a young girl who's had to grow up fast. Her mother is a former-beauty-queen-turned-young-single-mother who apparently hasn't managed, in 17 years, to care for anyone other than herself.
Not even her own child. Now she's pregnant again and Sadie, on her first day of summer break from high school, must take her mother's place as housekeeper at one of the rich houses.
Sadie manages to earn her place on the staff and quickly discovers that it is the family home of teen heartthrob rock star Jax Stone. The author continually shoves in our faces the fact that Sadie is "mature for her age", but having a mature work ethic, bitter outlook on life, and self-proclaimed aversion to rock stars does not make a girl mature.
In most important ways, Sadie is no more mature than any other teenage girl, and in a few, she is even less mature than her peers. She is naive, gullible, and far too innocent. I quickly grew tired of her uninteresting statements, her moping, her petty jealousy, and her constant indecision.
Jax Stone is the modern YA cliche'; rich, devastatingly hot, oh-so-sweet I can't get over how behavior like his is praised in some love stories while simultaneously being repulsive and oftentimes illegal in reality. The one-liners in this particular romance far surpassed my expectations, however.
While I was expecting some cheese, I had no idea how often I would be fighting my gag reflex. They're the kinds of lines that, were they spoken to me no matter who was speaking them , I would roll my eyes, laugh, and move quickly away.
The romance was, predictably, based primarily on physical attraction. There are some moments, here and there, where it would appear Sadie and Jax were falling for each other for other reasons, but these are never fully explored. The main reason for Jax aside from how much he likes Sadie's looks is that she's "different" from any of the other girls he's ever met.
I have a revelation for him; there are millions of those all around the world. Its unrealistic portrayals, sappy, nauseating dialog, unresolved plot points, convenient write-offs, and unsympathetic, shallow characters made this yet another disappointment for me.

It's nice to re-read this book only in its updated version. Now, it is told in dual perspective the first edition is told only in Sadie's perspective and there are additional scenes that leans more on the "New Adult" side the old version is more of Young Adult because there's no "intimate" scene on it which I find better because it matches the rest of the series.
As always, it's a guilty-pleasure read and you can read this in one sitting. View all 3 comments. Sep 04, Kala rated it did not like it. This book is bad.
Really bad. It's every YA romance novel cliche wrapped up into one with really poor writing and really boring characters. The whole Cinderella trope is always fun when done well - I don't even mind that it's a cliche. Disney channel seems capable of making a zillion teen remakes of Cinderella that are cute and fun. This book falls totally flat though. Sadie is the Mary-est Sue of Mary Sues.
She is drop dead gorgeous, but doesn't realize it. She thinks she has no personality and This book is bad. She thinks she has no personality and she's right , but all the boys fall all over themselves trying to get her attention. Her awful selfish mom is pregnant and doesn't feel like working anymore, so she forces 17 year old Sadie to take over her job as a housekeeper in order to pay bills.
Of course, the house she works at is the summer home of Jax Stone, teen rocker extraordinnaire.
As soon as Jax meets Sadie he's struck by how drop dead gorgeous she is. Of course, they fall in love instantly. They have had literally three conversations. Not once during these conversations do they talk about anything else. The lips of the only boy I would ever love touched mine, and I forgot where we were and everything else around us.
I've never met anyone who has seen past the star and found the real me inside Keep in mind, they have had NO conversations about anything other than Jax being a rock star. As a reader, I know nothing about Jax other than that he's a rock star and is hot.
That's it. The media found out about Sadie and to "protect" her, Jax dumps her. Once I had accepted that I would never love someone the way I love Jax, it was easier to breath.
He would always be in my heart, whether he wanted to be there or not. I just didn't have enough room for anyone else.

He was my air, my soul, and the keeper of my heart. My happiness is connected to him. Unhealthy relationship alert! Why must these YA authors write this cheesy, unhealthy, co-dependent bullshit relationships? Why can't a female be independent? Why can't she be sad about losing a guy, but still realize that she can move on and find love again?
Why do they write this idiotic "I'll die without you" types of love stories? They're not romantic and not real! At some point Sadie is riding her bike home and she meets the little sister of her friend Marcus. The girl talks to her and Sadie immediately thinks: For some reason, this bubbly girl liked me.
Like, we all know she has no personality. Sadie's mother. Where to begin. Sadie's mom is a big slut. So much so that Sadie has to keep her supplied with condoms that she apparently doesn't use because she's pregnant again. Sadie has no contact with her father and Sadie's mom has no contact with the father of her unborn child.
Sadie's mom forces Sadie to take on all of the responsibility. According to Sadie, by 11 she was running the household. When Sadie gets dumped by Jax she goes all catatonic a la Bella Swan. Sadie's mother doesn't want to work, or get child support, or get government assistance, she wants Sadie to take on the entire burden. Catatonic Sadie can't work, so her mom gives her this speech: We are about to have another mouth to feed, and no amount of your whining and wallowing in self-pity or pride is going to supply our needs.
So stop it, and face the facts. Hypocrisy much? Mother of the year has her baby and of course gets postpartum depression. Sadie has to go to school, work to pay bills, AND take care of her newborn brother all by herself. She eventually gets sick and hurt and gets hospitalized and is in a coma.
Abbi Glines is apparently hit and miss with her books. I thought Vincent Boys was just as bad as this. Existence was actually decent and gave me hope that Glines wasn't terrible. I have a few more of her books on my site, so I will read them Feb 17, Isamlq rated it did not like it.

Said weight is embodied mainly in a mother who wasn't all there but had the gall to put said girl down time and time and time again. Of course, eventually, our girl meets a boy who likes to save the day. The interesting bits had me waiting for something better that might just have been somewhere around the corner on the next page. I was wrong. What did they both see in her when she saw so little? And what was with their intense 'I love you's' after a nanosecond of knowing each other?
Plus the way they talked! God, they were long winded. Now on that note, I end. Then again, I might not. Apr 12, Duchess Nicole rated it liked it Shelves: Started off really great but lost steam somewhere in the middle. The end left me a little disappointed with regards to how Sadie's loser mother spent her entire motherhood leaning on her daughter for support but never had a harsh word said to her about it.

My first Abbi Glines. I'll give the next a go. Marcus was a great guy so I'm interested in his story. Nov 04, Kahina rated it it was amazing. This book stayed in my to-read list for a long time I guess.
This is Abbi Glines! Even stayed up all night to finish it. And I am so happy I did!! The This book stayed in my to-read list for a long time I guess. The two versions. Plus, in one of the cover, the girl doesn't even have curls so The Content: The Storyline Jax Stone was a rock star. A super star! A talented guy with a sexy grin known all over the world. Girls would die for him. They were fascinated by him, had his posters all over their bedrooms and could do anything to get his attention.
Jax was exhausted of his life style so, in order to escape the crowd, he took a summer break and headed somewhere no one knew he was; his big house in the island named Sea Breeze. She had never known she was going to work for the rock star, Jax Stone. When she knew, she was surprised but she didn't care. In fact, she has never been a fan of him.
Love at first sight!! She became his air and he became her reason to breathe. I, now, understand the title of this book! Their worlds were different but they managed to get through it, with the power of love.
There, in the house, was also a guy in the staff. He was named Marcus and since he saw Sadie, his mind has been blown away! However, Sadie only considered him as a friend. And he was. He has been a great friend to her, despite his feelings.
What it felt like? Abbi Glines , why did you kill me? Or, should I say, kill me again. I laughed, I cried, I smiled, I even jumped in my bed. In love with that book!! I'm such a hopeless romantic! How they turned each other into new persons. I hated to see them suffer from their worlds' differences.
I was eager to see their grief end and to see them together again. But then, when the story came to an end Happy end, of course!
Thoughts about the author: I could even worship you, seriously. I swear she has a special thing with love triangles. She relates them so well. In fact, she has a special thing with love in general.Way beyond my expectations. I just didn't have enough room for anyone else. I haven't met a girl with compassion before and I am intrigued. Innocence was never meant for the addictive… Add… More. Jax smiled and leaned down to whisper close to my ear. I'll give the next a go. He frowned and gazed down at me.
Would I read other books by this author: Yes!!!! Jax and his mother ate in silence this time. But I want to be the one to enlighten you.
