Book Review: I Breathe You

I Breathe You by Lori L. Clark: When a tragic accident leaves Rhane Evans -- lead vocalist for the rock band Fate's Crazy -- permanently unable to speak above a whisper and kills the love of her life, she moves across the state to pick up the pieces. Shattered, Rhane struggles to understand what happened the night of the accident, an accident everyone blames her for, even though she wasn't driving the car.

Enter Ian Callahan. He's the one person who may have a more tumultuous past than Rhane. Though they try hard to deny the sizzling attraction between them, it proves nearly impossible. When Ian's troubled past threatens to tear them apart, they begin to believe happiness isn't in their cards.

Because Fate's Crazy that way...

My thoughts: The girl who has everything going for her - sensational singing voice, member of an up-and-coming band that is already making waves; sexy, understanding is good for Rhane. Until it’s not.

I started this book and could not put it down until I was finished...then I was really mad that I didn't have a Book 2 waiting in the wings. I loved that this was not the usual "girl with a broken past - boy will fix it with mind-blowing sex" story. Rhane had to fight through some deep-seeded issues, while dealing with some hidden demons, and a boat load of guilt. And I absolutely loved that she was the one that had to fix the problems in her own life.

Not that I don't think Ian was a major driving force (in more ways than one) in her road towards a potential recovery. But he had some issues of his own to take care of before he could deal with Rhane. Both characters brought past relationship drama to the mix. Again, in a shift from the norm, Rhane's issues with her previous love had more to do with her problems, and less to do with his. It was refreshing to stray away from the "horrible ex syndrome”!

I would love to see more of Ian's story (wink, wink). There is also the whole discussion on T, and his life...I really want him to find someone to love...and stop smoking.

Another great departure from the boilerplate love story, Lori L. Clark has put forth another must read that will have you begging more. This is a must-read!!

My thoughts: Rhane Evans used to live ‘the life’. She has an amazing voice, Hot band mate boyfriend Dalton Morgan, and a band named “Fate’s Crazy” going through its highest breakthrough of career. But just when Rhane thought all things there is laid and going smooth. It’s been erased with just one crash. 6 months later there is a new Rhane Evans. An empty one. “Sometimes, I feel like there are two personalities at war inside my brain competing for top billing. It's like trying to put together a thousand-piece puzzle where five hundred or so of the pieces have mysteriously vanished.” Then she met Ian Callahan, a guy who has her oogling at him when they first met. The intense feeling is there, there is no denial but both of them had such an emotional past that it wasn't easy for them to be together.

Lori L. Clark really put together a good story so well that I instantly got hooked into this book. I didn't expect that such tragic will start the book. But I guess "We have to feel pain first in order to get our real happiness". I loved how she created the characters of Rhane and Ian. Rhane, with her past and some of her anger management issues, and I also didn't expect Ian has also a past that made him Immune to the 'craziness'. It’s definitely a good read.

Like I said earlier, it wasn't easy for the both of them, so find out how Rhane would be able to cope again. How Ian let her. I’m so excited about book 2 too because I really need more of Rhane and Ian’s story.

My thoughts: I was given the ARC of I Breathe You in return for an honest review so here goes:

Lori Clark what a corker of a book – although I was reading it at a very busy time for me and couldn't read it as quickly as I wanted too, when I did get my hands on it I couldn't put it down – I was hooked by it and was thinking about it even when I wasn't able to pick it up.

My review is not going to contain spoilers as I personally dislike them in reviews and end up thinking well what’s the point in reading it now, LOL. There’s so much I could write but I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone so I’m simply gonna say “READ IT, you won’t regret it”! :)

This book has everything you could wish for and brings out all different emotions and you end up joining Rhane’s rollercoaster.

So I just want to say “Well done Lori and don’t keep us waiting too long for book 2”! :)
