Ten Tiny Breaths - K.A. Tucker Read more of my reviews at Secrets of Lost Words.Rating: AHe cranes his neck to look up at me while still hunched over. "If you're not interested in me, just tell me. You don't have to ruin me for all women." "I'm more about action than words." I'm glad he's making jokes, but I still wince. I drop to a crouch in front of Trent and ask in a low voice, "Are you okay? Seriously?" "Yeah, I'll live. And by live, I mean curl up in a fetal position on my couch with a bag of ice on my nuts for the rest of the night."I have no idea why I waited so long to read this. It completely blew me away. This was such a great contemporary that as I went along with the story, I was feeling what the characters were feeling. I had an emotional breakdown. Kacey is broken. After her parents, her boyfriend, and her best friend all died, she became a completely different person. She toughened up and decided not to be the Old Kacey anymore. Her past added another dimension to her character. The book even labeled all the stages. It labelled all the stages toward her recovery and her journey to be her own person again and bring her wall down. Trent was an amazing character as well and I can see how he fell for Kacey and really loved her.There was a big plot twist in the book that I never saw coming. When it happened, I was just like, *wait a few seconds* oh shit. That was my reaction. It was just so surprising! I never even imagine that would happen! I must not spoil for you guys but if you read this, prepare yourselves.I think this book really showed recovery and forgiveness. It showed that it's okay to live your life even though your loved ones are gone. It also showed that love stays strong through trials and forgiveness. I feel like forgiveness and recovery are both big themes for this story and I feel like the author has shown both of them well.How can I describe Ten Tiny Breaths? It's an absolutely amazing read that had me sobbing and feeling and looking for all those deep hidden meanings. Read it. You won't be disappointed :)P. S. I just had to share that quote with y'all. You probably don't know what happened there but basically, Kacey was practicing her boxing with Trent but she accidentally kicked him in the nuts lol
