Editorial Reviews

Review

"The story grabs hold of you and not let you go. I cried, I laughed, and I cried a little more....This book is too good to pass up, and I beg of you, please read it." - The Indie Bookshelf

Just Remember to Breathe by Charles Sheehan-Miles is an enthralling love story that delves into the extremely relevant issues of Posttraumatic Stress Syndrome, Childhood abuse, and class-induced stereotypes.  It is a poignant and sometimes emotionally overwhelming experience of both life and love. - C.M. Truxler, The Literary Review

"Telling and heartfelt. Graceful. A romance novel written by a man, and... I loved it."- Maryse's Book Blog

This book made laugh, cry and every emotion in between.

I really like the way this book was written; each chapter from the point of view of each of the two main characters.

If your brain is suffering from reading too much faux-angst in New Adult literature, may I introduce you to a book that is not only well written but one I have enjoyed immensely. I will be the first to admit I am not crazy about YA but I do dip my big toe in every now and again. I have to say this was a book that stayed with me long after I finished reading.

Dylan and Alex are extremely intelligent people. The problem is a love affair gone awry and they meet up yet again at Columbia University through their work study program. I really enjoyed the first POV narrative from both characters and can I say how refreshing it is that a man wrote this? Some women just don't seem to get the way men think but Mr. Sheehan-Miles, being a man, digs deep into the heart of Dylan's feelings for Alex. He does an equally impressive job with delving into Alex's feelings for Dylan.

This story is beautiful because it is written well-steeped in reality. Dylan is also a veteran and survived severe trauma (both physical, mental and psychological) while stationed in Afghanistan. This was beautifully woven into the story because behind all the rhetoric of war, we sometimes forget the men and women fighting for our freedom in these far off places are much younger than we are (I'm in my thirties and it is reminiscent of the Eminem song where he proclaims: "I'm 27 -- they're gonna take you before they take me!"). And it is true. This badly damaged man is barely in his early twenties and we see the hell he goes through to try to get his body back into working order, how he complains about his lack of memory and how there are "holes" and how he just forgets certain words and phrases because of what he suffered.

I was utterly and completely blown away by this book. I had to remember to breathe, when I finished reading, because it was just that good! This is one of the most beautiful, powerful, emotional & heart-wrenching stories that I've read all year and it deserves it's place on my 2012 Favorites list.

Alternating Points of View & Timeline
This book alternates between the two main characters, Dylan & Alex, points of view in the past and present. I LOVED this aspect and it really helped me to understand, identify, empathize with & love each of them. I truly don't think the book would have been the same without both sides of their story being told, in the past & present. You see firsthand their feelings of love, heartache, frustration and despair - which made for a much more powerful and poignant story.

Second Chance Romance
I love, love, love an exceptional second chance romance story and, Just Remember To Breathe is definitely that. Dylan & Alex meet, while on an Ambassador Exchange trip to Israel, when they are both in high school. When they return home, the relationship continues even though they live on opposite coasts, but it's very difficult. After a huge fight & break-up, Dylan decides to join the Army. From there, the relationship continues to deteriorate until it becomes irreparable - or so they think. Several years later, they find themselves in the same work study program at school. Hurt, anger and confusion cloud their interactions with each other. Their road back to each other is not easy, and it shouldn't be. The issues they face are serious and very real. There were times when I wondered if they should even be together. However, Mr. Sheehan-Miles, did an amazing job of showing me just how wrong I was.

(NO SPOILERS, I PROMISE) Firstly let's get this out there before I begin- I thought I would never find another book that would break my dark, soulless heart again after I read THE SEA OF TRANQUILLITY, well I was wrong. (okay, maybe that was an exaggeration- I do have a soul and it's not that dark)
This man is pure genius. I was caught up in the pages of this story right away.
What Dylan went through broke my heart. How he described his feelings and experiences disintegrated what was left of it.
How Alex loved the new man he had become as much and if not more so than the boy she loved before his tour.

This book had me cry, laugh and think about all the soldiers who place their life on the line for our freedom. I thought of all their families, their loved ones who worry for them during tour and after.
Charles Sheehan-Miles brought all those feelings to the surface for me in a beautiful love story.

I love you Charles, Thank you.

Honestly, check this book out. You wont regret it!

It was a refreshing change to read such a unique romance book. The author takes on two very challenging topics, PTSD and date rape while still writing a touching love story between Dylan and Alex. The chapters alternate between Dylan's and Alexandra's POV. I can honestly say I was an emotional wreck every time it was one of Dylan's chapters. I'm so glad I came across this book. I've been raving about it to all my friends because it's truly one of the best I've read this year.

Why oh why did it take me so long to read this story?

I'm usually not a fan of those books where you pick up on the characters after they have had serious history together; but this writer did an excellent job on keeping the story moving along and did not confuse or lead the reader off course.

It was absolutely captivating and a story that you can sink your teeth into. I cant wait to try more of this author's books.

Only thing I would change if I had too, is that I wish the story was a little longer. The end of the book came too quickly :(
