5 Reasons to read Drowning to Breathe


We get a lot more of her backstory in this book.  She has had a horrible past, and I don’t know how I’d overcome the situation. She’s definitely a strong beautiful soul.

The Drama

Seriously, this one has soo much drama.  We want to root for Shea, but sometimes it’s hard when things seem to be constantly stacked against them.


I loved Shea and Sebastian.  They have such a strong bond, and even in hard times, they seem to be completely in sync with each other.


You see exactly what lengths Sebastian will go through in order to keep his family safe.  He has so much love for them, and I loved every single bit of it.

The Narrators

I love the narrators for this book.  I’m a huge fan of Sebastian York.  He does such a fantastic job narrating.  And I really enjoyed Andi Arndt.
