Beacuse of Low
While it Lasts
Untitled (coming in 2012)
Sadie White's summer job isn't going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother's increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother's job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn't spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star. 

Even though Sadie isn't impressed by Jax's fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax but he fights his attraction. Relationships never work in his world and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. By the end of the summer, Jax discovers he can't breathe without Sadie.  


     I was a little hesitant about reading Breathe because I had already read The Vincent Boys, and didn't liked it. But surprisingly Abbi Glines debut book, Breathe is so much better. It is a great summer read.

     Breathe is full of cliches. At the beginning I felt like I was reading a Cinderella story without the evil sisters, but it is so much more than that. Sadie comes from a lower class family, and works at the Stones house as a hired help. Jax Stone is a teen rock star (think Justin Bieber). They both meet during summer in Alabama, and have a summer fling. Their connection was instant; it wasn't love at first sight but kind of similar to that. I have read or watched the "famous guy falls for his maid" story so many times, but somehow Ms. Glines story stands out. It is a light read; there is drama, but it isn't overstated.

     The main protaganists' were really mature for their age. I felt like I was reading about 25 year olds. No complaining there, in-fact I liked it. I just wished that story had Jax's POV along with Sadie's, it would have increased the depth even more. The secondary character were very entertaining & supportive especially Marcus. I loved his character the most, and I'm going to start his book right-away.

     Breathe by Abbi Glines is quick light-hearted book meant just for the fun of reading and not over analyzing. I loved it , and would recommend it.
