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.
One of my favorite types of hero is the man in uniform. I love all aspects of their personality - strength, protectiveness, pride, love of country, fierceness, etc. Most romances, that have this type of hero, play up the positive sides of living that life. And while that's great, it was really refreshing to see the other side. The harsh reality that our soldiers live everyday while on the frontlines of war is unimaginable to me - until I read Dylan's story. The overwhelming stress, anxiety and pain they are immersed in after returning home, often with survivor's guilt, is unimaginable to me - until I read Dylan's story. I've never been in the military, I've never known anyone who has served in war and returned home. But with Dylan's story, my eyes were opened and they bled with tears of sorrow because now I know.
After reading this book, I can honestly say that, I want a book for just about every secondary character in it. Even though they were secondary, they all played a major role in Dylan & Alex's story. They were fabulous & extremely well written and gave the book a more polished and well-rounded appeal.
This was an unforgettable read for me and, one that I'll end up re-reading many, many times. I just wish that we had been given an Epilogue. I became so invested in, and fell so hard for these characters, that I would have loved to have a glimpse into their future. This is a must read for anyone who loves a powerful story full of love & triumph, and doesn't mind the bumps that it takes to get there.
This is a beautiful and emotional love story, and it gives you an insight into the life of a wounded warrior in a way that not many people would ever see. You will find yourself opening your heart to the characters in this book and cheering for them, all the while reminding yourself to remember to breathe.
In short, this is hands down my favorite book of the year. I don't say that often, and it takes a lot to get it out of me. Charles has accomplished what few authors have been able to pull off. You'll love this book just as much as I did. I guarantee it.
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!
