About the book:
Weston College freshman Leesa Nyland has been fascinated by vampires since she was three years old. That’s when her mom started acting weird, insisting sunlight hurt her skin because she’d been bitten by a one-fanged vampire. But fascinated doesn’t mean Leesa believes. Any more than she believes in blue fire, people who live for centuries, and kisses that can kill. But when her beloved older brother disappears after warning Leesa not to come looking for him, she is forced to consider all these and more. She also has to figure out what to do about her mysterious new boyfriend. She knows Rave likes her a lot-so why won’t he kiss her?
And why is he always talking about vampires? As Leesa draws closer to finding her brother, she faces some gut-wrenching decisions. Should she risk her mom’s life trying to “cure” her? Should she continue seeing Rave, after he reveals his dangerous secret? And most terrifying of all, should she make the ultimate sacrifice-give up her humanity-to save her brother?
As soon as I saw this ebook available for free by the author, I had to snatch it up! This is one of the books I wanted to read. While I have seen a few of the Twilight movies and only read about half of the book, I am really enjoying the paranormal genre. I originally thought that Breathless would be yet another carbon copy of Twilight. However, I am mistaken. Breathless is a completely different story, while it does have vampires, this story is very unique!
Breathless certainly left me breathless and wanting more. There is something about this book that made me want to savor ever page. I wasn’t in a hurry to finish this book, but at the same time, I wanted to know the whole story. First, I admire that the characters are so diverse in appearance and personality. Each character is unique, which I found that I could relate to my own life.
