Grade rate: A+

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. Relationship's 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.

But can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? Or will they have to learn how to breathe again?

My Review

Well, the short description is that I loved this book! Loved.  It. I am a sucker for romance and Breathe has more than its share in that particular category.
Sadie has been forced to grow up rather quickly and be the responsible person between herself and her mother.  Now that her mother is pregnant, she has even more responsibilities and I felt sorry for her and her lack of support before working for Jax Stone.  Sadie is a beautiful girl, she is caring, with good work ethics and strong believes between what is right and wrong.  Even though she posses all these redeeming qualities, she still fell head-over-heels for the latest heartthrob, Jax Stone.  The great thing is that he did too.  I loved that he was so caring, and knew exactly what Sadie needed and tried to make life easier for her.  The only thing I didn’t like was her reaction after Jax left (never fear, it has a happy ending!), although I do understand it.
I enjoyed all the characters in the book (well, maybe not Jessica: Sadie’s mom), they were well developed and easy to relate to, especially Marcus and Ms. Mary.  The story was simple and well developed and the writing was beautiful to read, it reminded me a little of Sarah Dessen’s writing.
I am a new fan of Ms. Glines and I intend to promptly purchase her next books.  I know that there is no need for a sequel, but I would love to see what happens with Sadie and Jax next, though I hope the last line is “and they lived happily ever after” J
About the cover – There are two covers of Breath and I like the one I posted here better.  It represents the book so well and it is beautiful.
