Release Blitz - Waiting to Breathe by Alyson Reynolds

Title: Waiting to Breathe
Series: Waiting Duet #1
Author: Alyson Reynolds
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 21, 2017
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.


Review by Barbara

Young Love.. Nothing like it. The author has written a wonder story that will reach out and tug the ole heartstrings. Nate and Olivia are both college student that are balancing college and inner personal battles. The story delves into their lives and takes you on a very emotional ride. 

When they first meet Nate is drawn to Olivia and wants to get to know her. But Olivia is such an emotional wreck she can’t let him in (Olivia Ex’s boyfriend had really hurt her and put her life in a tailspin). But Nate doesn’t give up. He too is fighting the weight of dealing with family problems that he feels a kindred spirit in her. I don’t do spoilers so I will just say this is an wonderful story with what I feel are strong characters (even if they are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders). The storyline has some very witty banter with some major Highs and major Lows. Much as real life, nothing worthwhile is ever easy and anything important to you it’s worth fighting for. And fighting just to live day to day let alone love is ever present in this book. 2 thumbs up for a wonderful story that I highly recommend. PS: I am most certainly looking forward to Finn and Cara’s story as the group continues on the crazy road called Life.

Review by Kathy

What a beautiful love story that began after a devastating break up for the lead female character Olivia. This story was so well written that you could feel the pain that she went through in her past, and could feel her becoming stronger and stronger the longer she was with Nate. You could almost feel the love that these two shared, and then again wanted to throw something at both of them when circumstances drove a wedge between them. I swear I wanted to hit both of them with my kindle. These characters were so very well written and so well developed, although Olivia was a little more complex than the other characters, including her twin brother Finn. But she was surrounded by people who cared deeply for her, including her best friend Cora, and she was finally able to become the person she once was. 

This story is about healing, love, strength and selflessness. 

I adored this book (even the part that made me want to hit someone), and I know that you will too, so I highly recommend this book.
