Actual Rating: 3.5 stars
Unpopular opinion alert- I liked this book but I didn't love it. Ten Tiny Breaths is not my first encounter with the wonderful K.A. Tuckers books and it certainly won't be my last. However, this book wasn't a favorite of mine when it comes to her captivating novels. While I really liked the premise behind this one (two damaged souls who find love with one another only to be ripped savagely apart because of a secret -aka the HUGE twist I never saw coming), I felt it was really SLOW. This book didn't read like a romance to me as the romance factor was really sparse. Instead, it felt more like a women's fiction or coming of age drama. I think I was mainly let down because of this- I was expecting a romance and found the romance to be lackluster.
Now, while this wasn't a favorite KA novel for me, I really enjoyed the emotional moments in the story along with the secondary characters. This book is VERY emotional and deals with traumatic issues that I wouldn't wish on anyone. I won't spoil it because there will be some people who haven't read the story. My heart hurt for these characters and I certainly shed a few tears thinking about what they were going through. I think many will agree with me when I say the plot is thick with emotion and beautifully written. I just wished there was a bit more romance and a deeper connection between the two main characters because to me, it just wasn't there.
If you are a fan of K.A. Tucker and haven't had a chance to read this one I certainly recommend doing so. Just because it wasn't a favorite of mine doesn't mean another reader won't like it. Just look at the rave reviews it is getting from other readers!
