HEY GUYS! This is a segment on this blog that I never thought I'd make, but I definitely had to share this. If I like how this one turns out, I'll post more "CRs" (Currently Readings)!
A few weeks ago, I was on Indigo/Chapters' website, and I came across this 4 books box set for 15$ only, so I looked up reviews and they were decent. I ended up purchasing them, only to realize how ugly... Like REALLY ugly the covers are. Seriously, an unnaturally buffed guy with a girl wearing a tiny dress. Yeah. But I started reading the first book in the series, and it is actually better than expected. I'm only 100 pages in, but I'm already loving it!
The reason I love it might be the reason a lot of people hate it : it reads like a fanfiction. If you're into bands and youtubers and whatnot, you've DEFINITELY read fanfiction before, and you know how it is. This book, Breathe (Sea Breeze #1), is narrated from two POVs, Sadie's and Jax's.
The story is about Sadie, who is 17 and struggling to pay off her and her pregnant mother's bills by finding a summer job. Her mother is incredibly irresponsible, so Sadie is basically the adult of the family. She lands a job in Sea Breeze, Alabama (I think), and works for a very wealthy family... Jax's. Jax is a rock star, touring the world and making girls go crazy (I think of Harry Styles, to be honest...) and he takes a few weeks off every year and relaxes in his house in Alabama, Sea Breeze. Obviously, he falls in love with her, but they're from different worlds. He tries to stay away from her, but Marcus, another employee, gets closer to Sadie, which drives Jax nuts. And the story goes on from there...
The reason I'm writing an early review about this book is because this is very similar to the Anna/Lola/Isla trilogy! I found out earlier that the second book is the story of Marcus, the third story is the story of another character in Breathe, another book in the series is about Jax's brother, and so on. Basically, they're all companion novels, centered around the same place and character. This just made me want to read the rest of the series so much more! I will keep you guys updated on my thoughts on the book, and if you want, I will make a full review of this book when I finish it.
I'm going to get back to reading now! If you want the books and you're from Canada, you can get there here for 15$ only!
