Review Tour: Don't Forget to Breathe by Melinda Harris

Don’t Forget to Breathe

About The Book:

Title: Don’t Forget to Breathe
Author: Melinda Harris
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Published: 10/16/2013

Purchase: Amazon

For most, breathing is second nature, automatic, instinctive. But for Jules Greene, a daily reminder is unfortunately necessary.

Why, you ask?

For starters, her highly dysfunctional family taught her at a young age that an excessively large bank account, and a high ranking role in Atlanta society, makes everyone either completely unsuspecting of a family’s deep, dark secrets, or they just don’t give a damn.

Secondly, when you work hard your entire life toward a certain goal, only to have your hopes and dreams smashed to bits the very first time you dare to put yourself out there…well, Jules knows firsthand that a blow like that to the ego will definitely leave you gasping for air.

And third, Jules happens to be madly, hopelessly, unrequitedly in love with her boss, whose devastatingly good looks and hidden charm manage to leave her breathless on a daily basis.
So, there you have it.

But now at twenty-four, Jules is tired of everything being one-sided. She’s tired of being scared, and she’s tired of living and doing everything for everyone else. Jules is finally ready to take a stand, but is she willing to lose everything she loves, everything she’s ever known, to finally start living her life on her own terms?

The answer is yes. She most certainly is. 

My Review:

Don't Forget to BreatheMy rating: 4 of 5 stars

Don't Forget to Breathe by Melinda Harris is a quick and quirky story of family, wealth, standing up for yourself, and, well duh, love!

Jules is basically a doormat for her family, friends co-workers. she has a kind heart and does for others when and where she can. But this does give her the air of being, for sake of repeating myself, a doormat. When she decides she's over it, it begins.

Andrew is a bit of a jerk. He can't seem to settle on a way to act and there were moments that made me so frustrated with/at him. Men! But if I've also never claimed to be entirely stable when it comes to book boyfriends, liking all the unstable ones...(John Zane, Jesse Ward, Sean Ferro, Anthony Rawlings...etc)

This book has it's funny moments, some snarky humor, but I recommend having some tissues handy too. Just to be on the safe side.

A Very enjoyable read!

About The Author:

Melinda Harris was born and raised in the great state of Georgia. She adores living in the South, and although she lives for road trips, she has no plans to abandon her Southern roots any time soon.

Forever a hopeless romantic, Melinda first knew she had it bad when her imaginary love affairs between Ken and Barbie rivaled the best of plot lines on her Nanny’s soap operas. Many moons later, while on maternity leave with her son, she finally found the courage to put one of those fantasies down on paper. And within a few short months, her first novel was born.

Melinda is still new to the world of writing, but she is certain she will always be humbled by the idea of anyone – excluding her mom, of course – wanting to read her books. However, she has become quite addicted to writing and the happy escape it provides, so she can only hope a few readers will enjoy her stories too. Because like her Southern roots, Melinda doesn’t plan to abandon her new happy place any time soon.
