I have another great summer read for you. It is a young adult novel that harkens back to those summer crushes. But I doubt any of us had a summer fling with the hottest teen idol of the Rock 'n Roll world.
Sadie doesn't have a great life. She is the adult in her household. Her mother barely does what needs to be done and relies way too much on her 17 year old daughter. Therefore, on the first day of summer vacation, Sadie heads to her mother's workplace to take her place. Her mother is a domestic for a wealthy family. Lo and behold, Sadie finds herself cleaning the house of the hottest teen rock star. Unfortunately, she has much more pressing issues to barely notice the heart throb. That is until he turns that panty dropping smile on her and bares a rarely seen side of himself.
Breathe is a bit of a modern day fairytale. Jax Stone is a worthy Prince Charming. I even got a little teary eyed towards the end. I loved the characters. If you want to know more about the characters, Abbi shared how she created the characters in a guest post last July.
This is another perfect read for the summer. There is conflict and struggle. But it is every teens' fantasy and for adults reading it, it will bring back the fond memories of summer love.
