Blog Tour- Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Ten Tiny Breaths


Kacey Cleary’s whole life imploded four years ago in a drunk-driving accident. Now she’s working hard to bury the pieces left behind—all but one. Her little sister, Livie. Kacey can swallow the constant disapproval from her born-again aunt Darla over her self-destructive lifestyle; she can stop herself from going kick-boxer crazy on Uncle Raymond when he loses the girls’ college funds at a blackjack table. She just needs to keep it together until Livie is no longer a minor, and then they can get the hell out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed next to Livie one night, Kacey decides it’s time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast, Kacey and Livie start their new lives in a Miami apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a stage name perfectly matched to her chosen “profession.” But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle all of them. What she can’t handle is Trent Emerson in apartment 1D.

Kacey doesn’t want to feel. She doesn’t. It’s safer that way. For everyone. But sexy Trent finds a way into her numb heart, reigniting her ability to love again. She starts to believe that maybe she can leave the past where it belongs and start over. Maybe she’s not beyond repair.

But Kacey isn’t the only one who’s broken. Seemingly perfect Trent has an unforgivable past of his own; one that, when discovered, will shatter Kacey’s newly constructed life and send her back into suffocating darkness.
I won't go into too much detail regarding the events of this story, I don't want to spoil anything-- the synopsis already gives a very good idea what it's about :) I will say that I absolutely loved this book! This was an extremely emotional read for me and such a beautiful story! It's a story about love and friendships, about family, about pain and loss, about forgiveness, about healing. I fell in love with all of the characters, they all had something very special to bring to the story and helped to break up the very serious issues-- drunk driving, death, PTSD-- with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. I really love K.A. Tucker's writing style and I absolutely cannot wait to read more of her work. (We'll get Livie's story in April!). This is definitely a must read, I promise you will love it!

A few quotes:

“Just breathe. Ten tiny breaths … Seize them. Feel them. Love them.”

“I can feel his very existence as if it's wrapping its hand around my soul, cradling it, trying to protect it from harm and I'm terrified. Terrified because I don't ever want the feeling to end.”

“He leans in closer and closer until his breath caresses my mouth. I’m paralyzed. I swear he’s going to kiss me. I swear I’m going to let him.”

“And you must be Princess Mia? I've heard about you."
Her lips pucker and she leans out just a bit further from Storm's cover. "You have?!
He nods. "Well, I heard about a Princess Mia who likes ice cream. That must be you, right?"
She nods slowly and whispers, "Did you hear that, Mommy? People know I'm a princess!”

  1. I LOVE this book. My first 5 star read of the year. It would be amazing to have a signed copy!

  2. Since I've started blogging, I've noticed the title Ten Tiny Breaths EVERYWHERE.. The cover is stunning and grabbed my attention right away, but the fact that TTB is consistently on everyone's Top 10 lists speaks for itself.
