Book Description

'The past doesn't define me. It's just a place I've been.'

Seth Kingston is back in town with years of regrets. Regrets for the way he left things with Penny, the hurt he caused her, and the future they could have had together. He had his reasons and now all he wants is to make amends and have a second chance at love.

But Penny wants no part of what he's offering. She's accepted that life is hard, love is an illusion, and you can't trust men. Especially men named Seth Kingston. And yet... he's so tender with her. He's patient, and caring.

Is it possible that he's changed? Can they really try again?

The past has a tendency to embed its vicious talons deep into a heart, never to let go again. Penny has enough tragedy to last lifetimes and isn't willing to let anyone scale her walls.

Can real love survive anything, even an unforgiving past?

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep Breathing March 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a sweet romance! Penny and Seth were perfect together, or so she thought. Then he broke her heart and left her hurting. That was six years ago and now he is back and wants her to give him another chance. Penny doesn't want to even consider taking him back. He shattered her heart and there is no way she could ever trust him again...right? Problem for her is he is the same and yet different. He is strong, sensitive, caring and just the whole package! Can she forgive him enough to see if they have a future together?
I liked how Penny was capable and strong, but she had her flaws. Like most of us, she settled in a job and that was it. She took no risks, hadn't fulfilled her dreams in the least and wasn't dating at all. Seth wants Penny because she was the only one he ever loved. A lot changed and happened in his life but that never has. I loved how persistent he was, even tracking her friend down. Oh and Penny's best friend is wonderful! She is going to do what is best for Penny, regardless of what even Penny says/thinks.
This was a 4/5 for me. I loved the sweet romance.

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent rewrite! April 24, 2014
By Ashley
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a great book, I had the privilege to Arc the original book for Alexia. While I thought that the original book was good and reviewed it well, I had been upset over how the book ended. When I heard that it was being redone I was excited to ARC it again for her. This time the story was even better, I loved the characters and how they never truly gave up on each other even after all those years. I was glad that the essence of their personalities didn't change in the redo because I fell in love with them the first time around. Penny's strong nature after Seth broke her heart was a good way to feel connected to her, we all wish sometimes that after our heart is broken that we can see how it will make us stronger. Penny shows us how to do that in this story. Seth was a character that I felt sympathy for, trying to balance duty and what we want is a hard choice sometimes. We all want to to the best thing for everyone involved, but we become tempted by the easier way and trying to convince ourselves it was the best option. But in the end of this story, even through all the heartache and regret these two can seem to find their way back together again.

If you read the first one and liked it, or wished it had turned out different then pick up this book and read it. It is different enough from the first book to make you happy that you did. If you didn't read the original book, then what are you waiting for, go get it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this read January 15, 2014
By Jodi
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this read. I loved Breathe Me and I love this version as well.

Forgiveness after Heartache,second chances and romance.

Seth and Penny are amazing. Storyline is great and captures everything in a sweet romance.

Alexia has a way of bringing you into the romance and the feeling of the characters and story line and that is what I love about her and her books.

A great and talented writer.

3.0 out of 5 stars A second chance.. January 20, 2014
By Tina
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Seth had broken Penny's heart, a choice that he has always regretted. Now 6 years later he wants to show Penny how much he still loves her.

I enjoyed this story but felt it was rather predictable. I am not sure that forgiveness always comes so easily. There were situations that could have been more detailed but over all a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can first love really get a second chance? March 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
*I was given this ebook for free for an honest review.

I truly enjoyed this book! It is so different from any of Alexia Purdy's works I have read before, but her style shines through.
She has a way of writing characters you can't help but become emotionally involved with. As I see it there are two major bonuses to this book:
1. The story is written from the perspective of both Seth and Penny so the reader knows everything that is going on and every insight.
2. The chapters are short so if you are one of those people who only has a few minutes at a time to read this is a good book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic read by Alexia Purdy! March 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I love this book by Alexia Purdy! She's done it again. She brings her characters to life with amazing qualities and some very realistic story lines.
After falling in love in college, Seth is about to be deported and makes the huge mistake of breaking Penny's heart instead of being honest. She's broken and not moved on, and though he's managed to make a few changes in his life, he's not forgotten Penny either. A planned chance encounter brings them back into each others' lives, and Penny is left with the decision whether to give him another shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second Chances February 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
If you knew you had hurt someone deeply but had reasons that you had to do so, would you try to make amends? What if you were the one that was hurt? Would you forgive? Would you be able to get past it and trust one another again? This is Seth's and Penny's stories. Told in a dual pov which I oddly liked, because I don't normally. Keep Breathing takes you through their tragedies and triumphs and makes you hold your breath and hope for a happy ending.

What would you do if the guy who ripped your heart out came back for round two? People don't change, or perhaps they might? You take it one breath at a time.
