Review: Drowning to Breathe - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

The danger in pretending is it becoming real…

Sebastian Stone, Sunder front man and guitarist with a rap sheet about ten miles long, escaped to Savannah, Georgia, to get away from the trouble he’d caused.

Not find more of it.

The moment he saw Shea Bentley, he saw beneath all her sweet and innocence to something that went deeper.

Darker.

Their relationship was built on secrets; their love built on lies.

Sebastian never imagined how deep her secrets went.

When the past and present collide, Sebastian and Shea find themselves fighting for a future neither believed they deserved. Their passion is consuming and their need unending.

Now, holding the truth in his hands, Sebastian is faced with sacrificing everything he’s come to love to protect Shea and his family.

Two pasts intertwined.

Two lives bound.

Will their demons drown them or will Shea and Sebastian finally learn to breathe?

Drowning To Breathe
By A.L. Jackson

Review: Drowning to Breathe

A.L. Jackson is one of my favorite authors. I love the way her words bleed emotion, the way her stories make your heart ache. This latest release proves it once again. She delivers the conclusion of Baz and Shea’s story with intensity, as hearts are bared open and betrayal runs deep.

“Do you really think you don’t know me, Sebastian? Do you really think you don’t know every single thing that counts?”

Sebastian feels his relationship with Shea has been a lie. But without her, he’s a shell—desolate and heartbroken, needing her despite it all.

Shea, too, is broken. With her daughter and Sebastian gone, her world blurs in chaos, complication and pain.

Baz finally reacts, however, and helps Shea fight Martin to win Kallie back.

“… they were worth everything. I’d give up anything and everything to protect them.”

Drowning to Breathe centers around Baz and Shea opening up completely to each other… past and present. Much of the plot revolves around their fight to get Kallie, with suspenseful notes woven in when it comes to Martin and his shady actions. We see their lives twine even tighter and tension escalates on every level.

All in all, sexiness, suspense and emotion blend together to deliver a conclusion that is satisfying and well-earned. Lots of moments of tenderness with a wonderful epilogue that will have you feeling even happier.

“And here I stood, covered in all Shea’s light, cloaked in her darkness, lost beneath the surface where she became the air. Drowning to Breathe.”
