I gave this one the chance to prove itself to me, "breathe in breathe out."
The protagonist eventually rose up to her potentials, and did well to prove herself to me, the reader. Thank goodness.
It took a bit, but it got there.
It's a little tedious and like I'd said, frustrating, but I've come away fully satisfied, and learned something about the human resiliance too.
Tessa can be annoying at times, but it makes her very human and real. She starts out as a doormat, allowing herself to be treated badly by others. I loved how she found her voice and her inner strength, as she comes to terms with her ordeal, and became that phoenix.
The book does feel a little slow at first, but that could have been because I was waiting for her to be kidnapped. Because of that the suspense and angst kicked off from the start for me! Kidnappers aside there are 3 male characters and, for me, they all became suspects, either on their own or in some combination, at different points in the book. That is the quality of the writing.
The plot is never confusing but various facts/observations emerge that turn your thoughts first one way, then the other. The kidnap scenes are dark and contain a lot of potential triggers. Tessa's reactions and feelings after the kidnap felt so very real and whilst some of her actions were criminal (and in a big way), you sort of couldn't blame her.
Some reviewers have mentioned about the romance in this book. As an avid romance reader, I personally found the romance very vague and minimal, but it isn't what the book is about so I was OK with that.
Whilst there is a very definite conclusion to the story, I didn't know where life was heading for Tessa. Would she continue her vigilante ways? Did she intend on commencing a relationship with Tobin? And the biggest was over the delivery of the SD card - for me that was the only unrealistic part of the book.
I've not read any work by this author before, but I will be keeping an eye out for her work in future.
Tessa has a complicated love life. The man she likes, Tom, wants nothing to do with her. The man who likes her, Gerald, she wants nothing to do with. To unwind from her troubled life, Tessa goes out with a friend. What started as a fun night ends up in violent despair. Tessa is taken by two men, kidnapped and held hostage in a lone cabin. They videotape the mental and physical torture she experiences. Sure that she will not make it out alive, Tessa fights back and escapes. Yet the pain of her experience lingers—she suffers from serious PTSD, often turning violent herself. Determined to find out who orchestrated the kidnapping, Tessa and a cop Tobin, whom she begins to develop feelings for, seek out answers.
Breathe In is definitely not a novel for the faint of heart. Tessa endures things that take her to the very brink of a dangerous edge. It was hard to read what her kidnappers put it through. The process of her grief and anger was realistic and heartbreaking. The inner psychology of being the survivor of extreme abuse is well written and very emotional. It is hard not to feel for Tessa. And her anger? You don’t dislike her for what she does because you sympathize and understand her pain. The end came as a surprise, and the victory much needed. I can’t say she that her pain was assuaged, but the cathartic revenge at the end was enough to satisfy the need for resolution.

This book far surpassed what I was expecting. It took a couple of chapters for me to really get into it, but then the book picks up and really takes off.Read more
