My Review:I Breathe You is a heartfelt story about one woman's struggle to pick up the pieces of her shattered world after tragedy hits. It is beautifully written and is an emotional, but genuinely sweet and heartwarming read.
The story centers around, Rhane Evans, an extremely talented singer who is forced to cope with losing the love of her life, and her voice, after a horrible car accident. Rhane also has a very volatile temper, and while she can't remember what exactly caused the accident that ended her boyfriend's life, she suspects that it was her fault.
Throughout the story, we follow Rhane as she struggles to remember what happened the night of the accident, attempts to learn how to deal with her anger, and tries to figure out who she is without Dalton and her ability to sing. Her character is likeable and surprisingly quite witty for someone who is dealing with such great pain.
Rhane also has the added struggle of dealing with an unwanted attraction to contractor, Ian Callahan. Ian has a world of drama that he is dealing with himself, and knows that his life is not stable enough to start a relationship with Rhane. His character is extremely sweet and I loved how supportive he is of Rhane despite everything he is going through himself. They have great chemistry and the connection between them felt real.
The supporting characters, T and Gwen, were a great addition to the story, and provided Rhane with a lot of much needed guidance and support. They also did a wonderful job of bringing some lightness to the heavy emotions that Rhane struggles with throughout the story.
I did feel that it ended a little abruptly, and wish there was a little more to the story, but all in all, I would still give I Breathe You a solid 4 stars.
