She’s broken.He’s lost.Olivia Crawford had been through the ringer. All she wants is to start over without any complications or anyone figuring out her secrets. When her twin brother Finn convinces her to move back home and finish her degree at his school, it’s just the push she needs to start over.
Nathaniel Ford is the golden boy of SCU. He seems like he has it all, perfect family, awesome friends and fraternity brothers, and a few buildings on campus with his last name on them. But things aren’t always what they seem.
From the first time Nate and Olivia bump into each other, literally, he wants more of her feisty attitude, but Olivia throws more walls up with each step he takes closer, and he isn’t sure he can break them down fast enough.
Waiting to Breathe is part one of a duet, but can be read as a standalone. This is a 3.5 star, spoiler free review.
The questions and intrigue start from the very beginning, and we are fed morsels of Olivia and Nate’s past which has brought them to where they are now.
Olivia is a very complex heroine. She’s an old soul, and has had a rough few years. She’s very cautious, but it just adds to her strength. She has experienced the ultimate heartbreak, and she’s very closed off. Nate, while having secrets of his own, is the perfect counter personality for Olivia. He’s protective, but also nurtures Olivia to spread her wings and leave her shell.
The story is quick moving, and there is a lot packed into one book. The cast is engaging and I’m very much looking forward to the next one.
