After a slow start this one really got to me. Great story and even greater characters. Especially loved the complexity of Graham. So well written and the story touched me.

Brittainy C. Cherry amazed me with her brilliant talent and as I sit here and write this review I honestly don't know what I was thinking for waiting until now to read this author's work.

The Air He Breathes is so hauntingly beautiful that it will surely take your breath away and make you feel so many things.

Tristan lost his whole world and in turn it made him a broken, tortured, bitter and lonely man. Elizabeth has not only known, but experienced loss and with the help of her daughter, Emma and her friends and family she's learning to see life in a light and slowly but surely moving on.

He's cruel and goes out of his way to be seen as a monster. She gives Tristan that ray of hope. Together, Tristan and Elizabeth come together during a time in each other's lives when loss is so unbearable it's hard for them to function.

This story was gut wrenching and heartbreaking, yet so freaking beautiful at the same time. It sucked me in and didn't let go until the very end, and even then I still felt the words moving through me!! I'm privileged to have experienced such a beautiful story and characters that made me love them with my very being. Be prepared for one hell of ride, I swear I've never felt more alive. I'm looking forward to read many more of Brittainy's amazing work heart emoticon!!

There was a lot of angst in this one. Layer upon layer of heartbreaking, harsh angst with heavy themes of drug use and abuse. The drug use is typically a major turn off for me in a story and it's often damn near impossible to get me to side with a character when they are involved in either of these things. But somehow, Ms. Cherry didn't make me hate the character enough to stop reading. She's a talented writer and that's the only way I can explain cheering for Logan's HEA. I could see his struggle, feel his pain, and saw him breaking. In the hands of many authors, I would have thrown my ereader out the window at certain points in the story, especially early on. It's not just that this guy can't seem to catch a break, it's his reaction and how he dealt to some of the situations that made me want to yell at him. But I saw him growing in the story, I saw him wanting to make a change in his life after he reconnected with Alyssa.

The angst became a bit overwhelming and I had to pause to recover before continuing. Everyone experienced some form of heartbreak, sadness, and pain. I needed some light. This was a true emotional rollercoaster. There were some parts where I thought the forgiveness came too easily and quickly.

I was emotionally exhausted when I finished but glad I read the story. I battled between a 3.5 and 4 star rating on this one because of the darkness and heartbreak. But in the end (for me), if a story still lingers in my mind after some time and takes me through a wealth of emotions, it deserves a bump in the rating for that.
