Inhale,Exhale Release Day Launch: Review & Giveaway

Inhale, Exhale
Author: Sarah Ross

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.
Inhale,Exhale was another excellent new adult novel that I really enjoyed reading. It was a very well written story and had a plot that was different and unique.

I liked Jillian well enough as a character though I honestly didn't build a strong connection with her. I did really like Grant alot, even though I wasn't a fan of him pursuing Jillian as hard as he did knowing she was taken. However, since Christian was a major jerk, I didn't have too much of a problem with it. I understood her connection to Grant because he was so much more grounded and more the type of guy that Jillian needed. Grant was such a sweet guy and was there for her in ways that Christian wasn't. Christian showed his true colors and when he did, I loved that Grant was so sweet and protective of her. 

So many new adult novels have similar plot lines surrounding some tragic event that the female character was trying to overcome. I loved that this book went a different direction and was unique with the story line. I wasn't sure what to expect in the beginning and I was pleasantly surprised with the way the story unfolded.

Author Bio:
Sarah Ross started her obsession with reading at an early age, getting in trouble for sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class in elementary school. She would read any fiction book she could get her hands on. Sarah knew it was an addiction when instead of grounding her from TV or music, her mom would take away her books as punishment (The Horror!). Her love of all things paranormal was inspired by her good friend Laurie, who convinced Sarah that books with vampires, witches, and all things shifter were amazing. After a little reluctance, she gave it a shot with the Sookie Stackhouse books, realized she was right, and the rest was history.

Sarah grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with a degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as she does for several years. She will always be a proud member of the Steelers Nation, but couldn’t take the cold and moved her frozen tush to Florida where she now lives with her family and two cats. You will find Sarah now with her trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!
