He made a deal with the devil to save the woman he loves…
After a terrible accident rocks the foundation of their relationship, Australian Sentinel Gavin Cassidy and whale biologist Zoe Morgan call it quits. Gavin can’t forgive himself for shattering her trust, and being with the sexy rock star is killing Zoe. Literally.
But love—and duty—are powerful motivators, and alliances are forged in the most unlikely places. With the key to salvation locked inside the mind of an unconscious child, Gavin must find another way to snuff out the Fyre Elementals before millions of humans die, or make good on his deal with the devil and lose the one he loves. Again.
I really do not want to review Just Breathe. Not because the book wasn’t good… but because if I write a review it means that it’s over. But I had this blog tour, and Kendall totally deserves the review, so I put aside my own insane delusions and…
Well kind of slapped something together haphazardly.
Listen, I’m willing to write the review and admit the series is over, but I’m going to do it quickly without looking at it too deeply so I can pretend it’s not.
(and luckily, there’s a new book in the works featuring some of my favorite outcasts)
First- and yes I’m still calling it first, even with all that junk up there- if you doubt for a minute the motivations of any characters, or think they’re behaving in a rather… err… mentally handicapped way, wait five pages. No seriously. Every time I was like “why the effe did they do that?” within pages I had an “ohh… now it makes sense” moment. I mean, it was brilliant.
Or maybe it was so that every 5 pages I could send Kendall a new update with a line in all caps calling either Zoe or Gavin a fucking idiot while threatening to shake them until their brains dribbled out of their ears. I don’t know, I’m not a Kendallologist. Either way, it was the shit.
Also, you should probably have a support group going into the book.
Just a warning.
Aside from the whole Gavin/Zoe drama (which I will not touch with a ten foot fucking pole… hey that would be an awesome name for a band…) you have this whole other set of complex characters and drama and emotion and just win. I will talk about that. Ad nauseam.
Jack – Both Gavin’s mentor and Zoe’s long lost dad, Jack just keeps getting more and more epic. The man would walk up to Obi-Wan and slap him in the face with his dick, all while eating an apple.
Jet – I am not going to lie to you folks, Jet is my favorite character in Just Breathe. She’s a turbo badass, epic healer, and wears glasses. I have a thing for girls with glasses. Plus I really want her to heal Sinnder’s broken heart. GO JINNDER!
Turns out ad nauseam translates to “my two favorites” in Ginny speak, because outside of Jet and Jack I can’t write a damn thing without crying like a big ole sissy or swearing for a page and a half. And then just letting out a torrent of spoilers.
5 Stars. For the book, the series, and Ms. Grey in general. If you want a paranormal series about elementals and whales that’s quirky and smart and funny and just plain old badass, this is it. Just Breathe is just the perfect icing on the delicious cake that was a wholly satisfying reading experience.
Plus the proceeds benefit whales. How can you not love that?
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to reread my old reviews, and my Hump Day Harlots featuring Scarlet while crying and listening to soppy music and telling myself it’s not really over.
