R E V I E W ➠ Barely Breathing by Erica Marselas

(A Keep Breathing Novel #1)



Buried deep under a mountain of lies, I’m struggling for air. My life, my choices are being dictated by my father.
I was forced to give up the man I love in order to protect him and now I must marry a man who I hate.
I thought I had found a way out.
I thought my time in this gilded cage was almost over.
Then one day Jaxson Holden walks back into my life, flipping it upside down.
He’s angry, I get it.
But he has no idea how much I have to lose—how much he has to lose with him coming back.
Now I need to find a way to hold on while I’m gasping for breath as my past and present collide.
Just keep breathing, River.
Just keep breathing.

“I’ll always be here for you, Rivs. Helping you breathe.”


Not my first read by the author but it is my first official review. I have been looking at this one for a while now and glad I got the chance to read and review it. This has a little bit of a dark feel to it, mystery, suspense, friends to and enemy to lovers, sizzling and dangerous. I enjoyed every scene in this, including the back glimpses.

River and Jaxson are a couple that will always be for one another, even if River sacrifices something that she debated for a while but in the end didn’t have a choice. Jaxson was out for revenge, when he learns the truth…both of them will have to find a way back to one another…if it’s not too late.
