Out of breath (Breathing #3) by Rebecca Donovan
Emma leaves Weslyn and everyone in it behind to attend Stanford University, just as she always intended. A shell of her former self, she is not the same girl. She is broken, and the only way that she'll be whole again is through forgiveness. Emma must find a way to forgive herself and recognize her own worth before she can receive the love she deserves. This final installment will have listeners holding their breath until the very end.
My reviewWhen I first read Reason to breathe, I was hooked to this story and I rooted for Emma and Evan from the start. After everything that happened to them, they deserved a happy ending, especially Emma, with all the abuse she took over the years. After Emma left Evan at the end of the second book, she tries to forget. She doesn't let anyone get too close, only he roomates get a glimpse of real her and Sara, who is the best friend I ever read about. I also liked Cole, who is Emma's friend with benefits, and I was sad for him. When Emma and Evan cross paths again, she is not the same girl she used to be and Evan can't help himself to be around her. From thereoies a series of challenges for the two, the truth about everything comes out and they have to try to forgive and forget and learn to trust others and themselfes. I am happy this series ended the way it did, withhappiness instead of sadness. Evan and Emma both deserved it.
