Breathe Into Me by Sara Fawkes (Book Review)

How did my life get so broken? It’s a question Lacey St. James asks herself every day. Stuck raising her little brother in a trailer park while she works a dead end job at a grocery store, she has a stalker ex-boyfriend, a bad reputation, and no way out.

And then she meets Everett, whose presence changes her entire existence.

Everett is an outsider to her small community, in town for the summer housesitting one of the grand mansions off the Mississippi coast. When he saves her in a bar one night, she’s grateful but wary of his intentions. Lacey doesn’t trust most men in her life, but for reasons Lacey can’t understand, Everett is completely captivated by her. He’s determined to show her that life can offer more than she’d ever hoped for, if only she believes in herself. As she works with him to free herself, Lacey desperately yearns to trust him, to move on and perhaps start fresh.

But what happens when she finds out that everything he’s told her about himself was a lie?

While standing in the book section of my local store, I scanned the available books and decided whether I should pick up a ‘tried and true’ author or take a chance on a newbie. Based off the cover and summary, I decided to read a new author. 
Her storyline is absolutely relatable to….everyone. Who hasn’t know someone who’s been knocked down repeatedly, been knocked down themselves, but kept on fighting? 
When, in this day and age, do we not hear about cyber bullying in the news — in our own backyard?
Even though this story will touch many hearts, I still gave it 3.5 stars because the pace was slower than I like in my story and at times I found myself losing interest.
