Inhale, Exhale by Sarah M. Ross Blog Tour (ARC Review)



Hey Everyone!
So today I'm a part of the Inhale, Exhale Blog Tour!!! :)

I am doing a review on the ARC edition!  The came was released officially on the seventh, so if it's something that might sound interesting to you, you can find the buy links below! :)

From Goodreads:


Jillian had a plan: celebrate the end of her first year of college with an amazing summer full of beaches, barbeques, and bonfires. When her mom insists she needs a summer job, and her boyfriend spends more time with his band than with her, Jillian’s plans go down the drain.

Grant had a plan: finish his Masters, get a great job at Google, and get the hell out of Georgia. He might be giving up some of the fun of his youth, but he knows his all work and no play method would be worth it when his dreams came true.

But things never go according to plan.

When temptation brings them together and tragedy tears them apart, Jillian and Grant will be forced to choose: fight for their dreams, or fight for each other.

My Thoughts:

inhale, exhale by Sarah M. Ross was a cute book!  It was a lot like what I like to read! Characters around my age, a good story line involving a love story of some kind without paranormal aspects.  

Jillian was a great character, whose had quite a bit of luck in her life, I feel like.  She's been in one relationship since she was a sophomore in high school, she has a great family who adores her, and she gets lucky when her mom gets her that job!  

That's where she meets Grant!  Grant, on the hand, hasn't had the most simple life.  His mom died when he was sixteen, and since then he's pretty much been taking care of father, making sure he doesn't he go downhill completely, while going to school and working on computers for a living.  He's extremely smart when it comes to computers!  

Jillian, while always have been pretty lucky, runs into a couple of rough patches in her life throughout inhale, exhale.  She realizes her high school sweetheart boyfriend of four years isn't exactly the guy she thought he was..., her grandmother goes ill, and there is that small problem of staying away from Grant to avoid the physical attraction that is clearly there between them!

While, I truly enjoyed this story, there was one thing that sort of bothered me, and while it also bothered Jillian, herself, that she did it, it was a little sad to me...not ending her relationship with her boyfriend before starting something new with Grant.

I get it, Grant was there for her, and I was definitely hands down 100% routing for them, however, I honestly didn't think it was right!  I mean, she supposedly loved her boyfriend! AND they had been together for a long time!  It was the decent thing to have done, in my opinion.

However, luckily Jillian felt very guilty about it herself!


Overall rating: 


This is hands down a cute contemporary New Adult novel!  I would recommend it for the 17 and up age group, since it does involve some graphic elements involving sex, as well as physical abuse.  It's got a set of great characters, that obviously have some serious chemistry between them! And it's the perfect read for a romancaholic seeking a great book! :)
