Synopsis:  I was warned about Tristan Cole.

“Stay away from him,” people said.
“He’s cruel.”
“He’s cold.”
“He’s damaged.”

It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster.

But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me.

We were both empty.
We were both looking for something else. Something more.
We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays.

Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.



Review:   This book made me ugly cry…multiple times, and that is a good thing!


Brittainy Cherry certainly has a way with words.  Within her books, she weaves emotional stories that draw you in and you find yourself hanging on every word until the very end.  Then, when you’ve spent even last ounce of emotion and you’ve read the final word of the book, you find yourself in the biggest book hangover ever.  Seriously!  Brittainy Cherry’s books are like heroin – every time I read one, I need more.  Luckily, my addiction continues to be fed with new books.  Is there such thing as book rehab?  If there is, I might need it.


The Air He Breathes is a rollercoaster of emotional drama from page one.  It is the story of two broken people who become an unlikely pairing and find comfort in each other, but not in the way you think.  I can’t tell you how, because that would ruin this lovely story and I don’t spoil…ever.


Tristan is an amalgamation of anger and guilt and sorrow all wrapped up in a man that resembles a crazy homeless person at the beginning of the book.  Elizabeth is heartbroken, alone and barely holding things together while trying to raise her five year old daughter alone.  Each of them has lost someone close to them.  Each of them has dealt with the loss in their own way.  However, they are more alike than they think.  People judge Tristan for his appearance and his behavior, but Elizabeth sees something underneath the exterior.


The book tells the story of how Tristan and Elizabeth begin as two broken souls and eventually find their way to happiness through each other.  The road is bumpy and there are detours, but the ending is so satisfying.


Have your tissues handy with this one.  The ugly cry is real people.  One-click this, borrow it, buy it…whatever you have to, because this will surely become a fast favorite.
