Sydney Westbrook has had enough.
After a fight with her abusive ex-boyfriend leaves her in the hospital once again, she knows it’s time for a change. Just out of college, Sydney decides to accept a position as a live-in nurse. But leaving the comfort of Atlanta and the support of her small circle of friends is hard to do. And when she meets her ailing, stubborn client, Sydney second guesses all of her choices.
A southern family with a social status to maintain, the McNamara’s think very little of Sydney, especially since she reminds Mrs. McNamara so much of the daughter-in-law she never accepted. But when Sydney encounters Quinn, the defiant grandson, her views of the family begin to change. And her heart begins to heal the hole left behind by the abuse.
Sydney and Quinn may have little time together, but they make the most out of it. A public display of their relationship is short-lived when Sydney learns just how far her client will go to save her family’s namesake. And when Sydney’s past suddenly rips into her new world, her happiness with Quinn threatens to come to an end.
But truth and friendship will help Sydney finally live the life she’s chosen while loving the one she chose.
I generously received this ARC from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review…
I thoroughly enjoyed the concept of this book and was fascinated by the darker elements included. This is the first book that I’ve been fortunate enough to read from this author, but I do plan on reading the rest of the books in this series when they are released. Although this book does deal with some dark themes, it was a surprisingly lighthearted read.
One More Breath takes us through a rollercoaster of events throughout the entire book and leaves the readers wanting more. We are first introduced to Sydney Westbrook who is on a journey of self-discovery after fleeing from her abusive ex-boyfriend, who has tried to kill her countless times in the past. She’s leaving everything behind — her home, her friends and the life she could have had — to start a new life. Her instant attraction and connection with Quinn, Mrs. McNamara grandson, is evident, but will people stand in the way of their happiness? Find out by picking up a copy of the book today!
