About the book:
Author: Jessica Park
Release date: July 16, 2013
What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?
Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. As their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor she’s been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to heal, and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new paths to pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer waters, she realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s traumatic history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe may be the only person who can keep him from drowning.
*This book is intended for mature audiences due to strong language and sexual content, and is recommended for Ages 17+
- Hearing him relaxes me and undoes my self-consciousness in a way that nothing else has been able to since that one night four years ago.
- It’s a constant struggle to stay near the surface. I have just enough air to stop me from totally going under, but not enough to thrive.
- I could breathe him in forever.
I could fall in love forever.
- Yes, it is pain, but it is pain with a purpose. Maybe the purpose is to escape, but that escape is letting me heal. I can feel it happening.
- I know how he sounds when he talks me down from pain.
I know too much not to be affected by his presence.
- “Feel me.” He inhales, and his chest presses into me. “Breathe,” he tells me. “Breathe with me.”
- After having lived so long without the desire for touch, for sensation of any kind really, I’m finally compensating. I want to feel him as completely as possible.
- “I will give you everything I have if you’ll just let me.”
- He’s daring me to listen, perhaps threatening me with the truth.
- I am going to fight with everything that I am to save him and to save us, but I won’t be able to do it alone.
