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, twenty-year-old Kacey and her fifteen-year-old sister, Livie, escape Grand Rapids, Michigan, to start over in Miami. Struggling to make ends meet, Kacey needs to figure out how to get by. 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 he 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 that an explosive secret could shatter both their worlds.

Ten Tiny Breaths is a story about second chance at life, learning how to forgive and love. There is truth within the sadness of the tragedy contained inside the pages of this book. No matter how are hard life hits you, you must get up and move on. Life is too beautiful to waste and this is what K.A. Tucker explains in this beautiful story.

The story begins when sisters, Livie and Kacey, are moving into a new city. After the death of her parents, best friend and boyfriend, Kacey has never been the same. Escaping from their tragic past, they try to start a new beginning.

Then Trent walks-in, their drop-dead gorgeous neighbor from apartment 1D. His eyes are set only on Kacey but he has a past to reveal. In denial, Kacey doesn’t want to feel and she doesn’t want anything to do with Trent. But little by little Trent will peal her hardness away but with his past, will Kacey ever let him in?

K.A. Tucker created characters that one can relate to, each and everyone one of them. Kacey is the broken child that experienced a tragic accident. From everyone in that accident, she was the only survival. She questioned herself why she wasn’t taken away to spare her pain. Livie is the young sister that her family was taken away from her. Not only was she hurt for her parents’ loss but she also had to fear losing her only sibling left. Then there is Trent. He is the person on the side of the story. With guilt and not able to forgive himself for the past, he is looking for forgiveness.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Sometimes we criticize people or situations when it comes to the topic engaged in this book. However, K.A. Tucker made me realized there are always two sides behind a story. And that living stuck in the past is not a way to live. One must learn how to forgive and live life as it is. This is a definitely recommend story.
