Brandee’s Review:

No secret here when I say that Rebecca Donovan is one of my favorite Authors. She first had me at her debut novel, Reason to Breathe back in 2011. I was thrilled to meet her in the Fall of this year, at which point she told me….”I was evil like her”. What does this mean? Well, since I am writing a review about this third book in The Breathing Series, I can no longer hide that there is not only one book to this series. When I first read Reason to Breathe, I was under the impression that I was reading a stand-alone book. However, when I got to the end of Reason to Breathe, I could not breathe! As you know, I do NOT like to give anything away in my reviews, but I will say that Reason to Breathe has a huge cliff-hanger and when I finished it…..after trying to collect myself first, the first thing I did was re-read what I just read…..trying to figure out what the hell just happened. The next thing I did was jump online and look for Rebecca’s website…..I needed answers….this stand-alone book DID NOT just end that way! I was distraught and my heart was racing. When I found her page, this is where I found out that there indeed would be book #2 Barely Breathing….. I could once again “breathe”. So, to understand where I am coming from when I tell you that I am “evil”….. when I would tell my friends to read this book I would not tell them that there was going to be a second…. Why? Because I want readers to experience the same emotions I went through while reading the book….So, what would happen? I would get angry text messages and emails all the time and I LOVED IT! And when I met Rebecca I bought a paperback of Reason to Breathe and that was it (even though Barely Breathing was already released)… I would give my friends the book to read (for those that do not have a digital reader) and they would be HOOKED and yes, mad at me for putting them through it all! So yes, I am evil ….just like Rebecca….and I wanted to torture my friends the same way that she tortured me!
Then there was Barely Breathing, and what a perfect name for a book….the title says it all….she left us all Barely Breathing AGAIN! I did not know if I could stand it…..and with the title Out of Breath, I was fearful!
Now, I am here and have finished Out of Breath… What a fantastic series! The ride was rough, emotional, raw and so heart-breaking! Living along the way with Emma’s struggles was very hard and you just want her to find her way….. after everything she went through in all these years…..she deserves her happy ending…. to be guilt-free ….. she deserves LOVE, whether she believes it or not, and…….. she deserves to be able to breathe. Finally, I can breathe again when finishing a book by Rebecca Donovan….there was finally no cliffhanger and Emma’s journey is complete.
Rebecca’s writing is flawless! I enjoyed the transitioning between Emma and Evan’s points of view in this story. My advice to you, give the characters new and old a chance and be patient, there is a new story being told here and you just have to listen and be patient…you are not getting all your answers right from the start…. Enjoy, and Just Breathe!
I can’t wait to see what Rebecca has in store for us all next! If you have not done so yet, go grab this series…I think your heart can take it!


Rebecca DonovanOptimism seeps from every pore of my body. I truly believe that what’s supposed to happen… will! In that regard, I don’t know how to give up; it’s not part of my biological make up.
I’m a passionate (and some would say, overly enthusiastic) person. I learn by doing (and have been burned more times that I’d like to admit), but I will always throw my entire self into whatever I do – fail or succeed.
I think this is evident when I write, leaving nothing behind and spilling it all out on the pages. I give it all to my readers – love it or hate it.
The path I’m on is very often my own, veering off the beaten path at the sight of something more interesting or captivating, getting caught in the vines and thorns in order to experience the beauty and intrigue others often pass by. And I always meet the most interesting people along the way.
