Ten Tiny Breaths KA Tucker 5 STARS!!!!GoodRead Synopsis: Kacey Cleary’s whole life imploded four years ago in a drunk-driving accident. Now she’s working hard to bury the pieces left behind—all but one. Her little sister, Livie. Kacey can swallow the constant disapproval from her born-again aunt Darla over her self-destructive lifestyle; she can stop herself from going kick-boxer crazy on Uncle Raymond when he loses the girls’ college funds at a blackjack table. But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed next to Livie one night, Kacey decides it’s time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast, Kacey and Livie start their new lives in a Miami apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a stage name perfectly matched to her chosen “profession.” But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle all of them. What she can’t handle is Trent Emerson in apartment 1D.
Kacey doesn’t want to feel. She doesn’t. It’s safer that way. For everyone. But sexy Trent finds a way into her numb heart, reigniting her ability to love again. She starts to believe that maybe she can leave the past where it belongs and start over. Maybe she’s not beyond repair. But Kacey isn’t the only one who’s broken. Seemingly perfect Trent has an unforgiveable past of his own; one that, when discovered, will shatter Kacey’s newly constructed life and send her back into suffocating darkness

KA Tucker has an amazing ability to write. I am astounded by the ability and inspired Her characters feel so raw and genuine, her plot resonates with so many people, even if youre story isnt the same, you know it, you feel it and you can somehow relate. Beautiful. Everyone should read this book.
Kacey is trying to escape the pain and memories from home by running away with her sister to Miami, the problem she faces once there is that its more difficult to keep people out when everyone wants in. I think this story is so powerful. So many people have had the experience of something so painful that the pain is too much to let go of and you end up consumed with trying to keep from feeling that pain again. I think KA Tucker did a superb job of conveying Kacey as tough on the outside, but desperate and pained on the inside. He attitude was that of someone trying to hide the pain, he unwillingness to give in to temptation out of fear, and her desperate attempt to save her sister no matter what, all go to the true nature of someone who needs help healing.
From the beginning I was HOOKED. The plot doesnt truly require page turning and anticipation, but I had to keep reading. I was dying to know what happened to everyone in the end.
Not only was the plot entertaining and interesting, but the characters were all so integral to each moment. I enjoyed that the author included everyone and everything with a purpose.
I loved the twists and turns the story takes, love that develops in so many different ways, the fears that are overcome, by the different characters and the way the author weaves everything throughout the book so seamlessly you dont even notice whats happening until its all too late.
Trent- Wow. Where to begin. He is gorgeous, sweet, kind and such a mystery. Trent. I dont even know what to say or where to begin. He was an amazing guy, strange (but only because he was a mystery) he was quite the golden boy in my eyes, and he could do no wrong. I figured out his role in the novel a bit earlier than I would have liked, but reading his story made me love him that much more!!! His love story with Kacey was sweetly built too. It was a connection and then some. And the epilogue!!! Ah I just loved this book so damn much :)
Storm and Mia and Livie
