Book Description

What if the messiah and the anti-christ fell in love?

Azazel is seventeen and sexually frustrated. Her biggest issue is trying to figure out why her seemingly normal boyfriend won't sleep with her.

Then Jason races into her life. He won't say where he came from or who's chasing him. He's a delicious puzzle, a boy who has no problem using his fists to solve arguments or quoting Plato to justify his actions. Azazel is drawn to him. She's obsessed with finding out his secrets.

What she doesn't know is that Jason's secrets are entwined with her own town's secrets. Her friends and family have conspired to use her as a pawn in a violent scheme. Soon, she will have to choose between protecting Jason and staying loyal to everyone she's ever trusted.

A story about forbidden love, fate, and free will, Breathless is Rosemary's Baby meets The Da Vinci Code.

Intended for teens sixteen and up.

Editorial Reviews


"Completely inappropriate." -Kelly, goodreads

"Language is the least of the issues parents would have in this book."

From the Author

My young adult books are written about teenagers and for teenagers. I believe that young adults are exactly that--young adults. I believe you are capable of confronting issues that some may consider taboo. I also believe you are able to confront challenging thematic issues.

That being said, my characters may do things that you do not agree with from time to time. This doesn't mean that I condone those actions, or that I expect you to. I'm just hoping you'll think about why they bother you. However, I do recommend my books for readers 16 and older, and I warn that they may contain frank discussions of teenage sexuality, teen drinking, and occasional violence.

1.0 out of 5 stars THIS SERIES WASN'T FOR ME! July 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase


A crazy town full of Satanists who want to rape and kill innocent people, the "Messiah" who happens to be killing machine and satanic "hippies" who conceive the child of the Devil...this trilogy wasn't for me!!

Breathless, Trembling & Tortured by V.J. Chambers missed the mark in my book. Breathless, the first in the trilogy, is the best of the three books (and that's not saying much). By the beginning of the second book in the series, Trembling, I desperately wanted to turn off my Kindle and be done with it, but I stuck it out until the end (partly because I am sort of OCD and I HATE to leave things unfinished). I wish I could say that after concluding this series everything came together and I saw the light, but that wasn't that case. Frankly, I didn't like what I read.

The biggest disappointment, in my opinion, was how misleading I found the book descriptions. I understand you don't want to give too much away, but based on these descriptions I expected: a love triangle, a mysterious bad boy, romance and suspense. Don't get me wrong, this trilogy contains almost all of that, but it is more strongly based on Satanism, a secret society who have, literally, created the "Messiah" and parents who try to force their daughter (the reincarnation of the devil, of course) to participate in a satanic ritual. During this ritual, she is expected to be raped and to commit murder. Oh, those parents I mentioned ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Messed Up... December 26, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave this book three stars instead of two because it has a lot of potential, but doesn't deliver. It starts off light-hearted enough, with a teenage girl and her teenage problems and, of course, there's a secret being kept from her. Chambers does well, dropping enough hints at the secret to keep us interested without giving away what it is until the very last second. The plot movement was simple, yet believable, and the premise hooks you in pretty much immediately. I really thought I had a winner here.

However, the book does a complete flip-flop. The whole first half of the book suggests something fairly innocent and fun to read; but, when the secret is revealed and everything is laid out on the table, you realize it's something much darker and more sinister than that. Then, after everything goes to hell, we are thrust into a whole new story with new people and new circumstances. Everyone from the first half of the book is either killed or forgotten about within a chapter or two of the secret's exposure. The second half of the book was so different from the first half that I couldn't even attempt to reconcile it. It all went downhill so fast. The worst part was how morbid everything became. Jason and Azazel's circumstances turn into something so tormented and sad that I felt like there was no hope for them, like they had no way out. Not to mention their characters have a polar shift in personality, too. Anyway, I began to feel like the only way this book would end was with Jason and Azazel's suicides; it was that depressing. They didn't end up killing themselves; however, the real ending was so contrived, ridiculous, and unbelievable that I almost wished they had.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Different October 11, 2011
By Rachael
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will say overall this book was a great read. Just not for me. It was not at all what I thought it would be. The book is about a secret society and a crazy town thats into satanism! They really don't even go together. I really enjoyed Jason and Azazel connection... it is interesting. The good parts were when they are on the run together. I not sure if I am going to read the next book? I read this because I loved the Da Vinci Code and I wanted something different but this book is nothing like that.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not for everyone March 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being one of those adults who likes to read YA the first thing I should say is this --

For adults who monitor what the kiddies read and don't want them reading dark things? Skip buying this one for them. Language is the least of the issues parents would have in this book. When it comes to the YA / childrens books you really never know what you're going to get. This book? It's definitely for the older end of YA spectrum and could be tough for some adults.

Azazel lives her life in a small town. It's boring. Nothing really happens except for the occasional sneaking out after curfew to attend parties at farms. She doesn't do anything too wild. No one lets her, not even her boyfriend. So when a guy comes darting out of the woods like a mad man, as though someone were chasing him, well that's just about the most exciting thing she could imagine. Lucky for him and her, Azazel's parents tend to take in foster kids - especially the kinds that would be on the run from something. Of course he (Jason) ends up staying with them. Jason isn't very open to telling them what he's running from beyond the fact that it's dangerous men, and no he's not a criminal. Azazel is fascinated while everyone else seems either convinced he won't be a part of her life for very long so she shouldn't get too close or almost jealous. As no facts about Jason are learned (literally -- no one seems to find any proof of his existence), little clues that something just ain't right in town keep getting thrown in Azazel's face. But those clues have nothing to do with Jason, they seem to be about her own life. Problem is she's so obsessed with Jason and frankly just so oblivious that even when it is really obvious that she should be paying attention and asking questions -- well, she's not.

The grammar in this book is very poorly written. The story line was fine but the writer has a lot of maturing to do.
