Publication date: November 1st 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
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 voluntarily read and reviewed a free copy of this book provided by Xpresso Book Tours and the author. Thank you so much for the reviewing opportunity!
To be honest, I wasn't expecting this, by this, I meant the climactic ending.
If there's one word I could use to describe this book, it would be inspirational.
This was my first Amber Garr's book, but I was thoroughly impressed with the writing style and the unfolding of events that I know I will be keeping a lookout on the author's future works.
To be brief, One More Breath tells the story of a young and courageous woman, Sydney on her quest for self-discovery after escaping her abusive relationship with her ex. Starting a new job at a new place seemed like the good way to go, and then Quinn happened. But just when she thought she could finally lead the life she dreamed of, her past caught up with her present and she finds herself once again at the mercy of the same hands that destroyed her. But will she survive it the second time?
With such a heavy tune to the blurb, I was surprised that it was quite a light read, at least in the first part. The turn of events still left me breathless and at the edge of my seat, and because of that, I gave this book a solid 4 stars rating. I enjoyed the pace of the story and the characters were all well developed (including strict old Mrs. McNamara), so yes, I am recommending this book to all of you!
