Nate isn't your typical hot guy. He's sweet, smart, loyal and is also carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. There's a lot more to Nate than you think and his character really impressed me in this story. He was strong, loving and the glue that kept his family together. Playing this role doesn't come without sacrifice and will he give up everything that makes him happy to keep his family together?
This is the first time I read anything by this author and I was impressed. I enjoyed the story and plot held my interests. I had two slight issues with the story. The first one was that the couple moved just a little too quickly for my taste. The second thing was while reading it was hard to tell whose point of view it was even though it was labeled. They had similar thoughts and feelings which could be hard to distinguish. Those two issues aside I found this story to be cute and an enjoyable read. It also touched on some tough real life situations. I love when you can relate to a book and everything isn't sunshine and rainbows. I'm excited to read about Finn and Cora next!
"Waiting to Breathe" was another story that moved me and took my breath away.
Alyson has a simple but very striking writing. The way she tells her stories allows us to dream and think about what matters most in life.
This book tells the stories of Olivia (Liv) and Nathaniel (Nate) and the entire book is toggled between their views.
Olivia is a freshman at the University to which the transition left her very unease because she was not well prepared for this big change and since she was away from school for 2 years the adaptation was a little more complicated. And what better way to start the school than being saved by a Greek god? Lol. Her past and the secret she keeps have corroded her on the inside and make her live in constant fear and because of that she wants to isolate from everything and everyone. And unfortunately when our parents disappoint us we tend to feel alone and abandoned.
Is it wise to hide something important and that torments us from those we love? Does our family have to be aware of everything that happens us? And with that help and support us?
As much as the idea is appealing and that Nate is gorgeous, Liv is not intended to give herself again to love, body and soul.
Nathaniel is the ultimate playboy, the one all girls want and all men want to be, except for those jealous ones that hate him. His life was not always easy and right now he just wants to focus on his education and follow his dream, but unfortunately when you're constantly worried about our family, things don't always go well. The death of his father, the pain of loss made him committed to be a doctor in order to avoid that more people cry and suffer the loss of a loved one. Something in Liv leaves him intrigued and somewhat attracted to her.
Can the ghosts of the past come back to haunt and hurt us? Can we find true happiness after so much pain?
I loved this book, the level of feelings that it shows is something wonderful, I love the ups and downs and the love that is present in each chapter. I hated the bad guys but that's to be expected. There were parts where I wanted to cry because the situation that was reported was so sad that I couldn't help myself.
Alyson, every book I read I notice a big change in your writing. I love the way you tell your stories and I love the fact that you can put yourself under my skin and evoke feelings and emotions I didn't even know I had. "Waiting to Breathe" is without any doubt the ultimate book that I love and I can't wait for the next one. Thanks for letting me be a part of your life.
Reviewed For I'm A Sweet And Sassy Book Whore
I wanted to love Waiting To Breathe, I really did but I unfortunately thought it was just okay. I love a good new adult romance but I just kept hoping this one would turn into something great. I am probably in the minority so please form your own opinion on this one.
I think my main problem really was Olivia who I will get to in a minute. Nate was who I absolutely adored throughout the book. He had some family issues and while he wasn’t always open about them he handled them the best he could. He wanted Olivia and worked to not only earn a friendship with her but her heart as well. His best friend is Olivia’s twin and I loved her brother as well. Now comes to the part where I didn’t like Olivia. When we first start reading the book Olivia’s past isn’t known, something damaged her so of course my mind went to the worst possible scenarios, but when we learn the truth I almost wanted to slap her myself and say do you think you are the ONLY person who has ever done this? Grow up already. She acted immature, childish and I had zero sympathy for her. She added so much unnecessary and immature drama that more than once I started to put it down and not finish it but Nate saved it for me. I kept reading because of him.
I don’t know if I can say read this one or not, and I very well could be in the minority with this review but I just didn’t connect with what could have been this amazing story of letting love heal and moving forward when I got instead a heroine that I couldn’t stand.
