Book Description

Inhaling in life is easy. It’s the exhaling—the letting go— that’s the hard part. 

Katie Elliot has always known the Conner twins. For years she secretly pined after one, while playfully averting the advances of the other. Once upon a time, she was fine with that. Then came the moment when her twin of preference kissed her and changed everything. 

 As if realizing love can be complex—even when it’s reciprocated—isn’t hard enough, tragedy strikes, tearing Katie and the boy she’s always desired apart. Finding herself torn between love and guilt, Katie must learn when it’s acceptable to let go—when it’s finally okay to exhale.

Paperback Princess Review 

Exhale is another fantastic book written by a fast-becoming fave Author of mine, Jennifer Snyder.  I was first introduced to Jennifer through her Reaper Novellas, I reviewed Hereafter, and a review of Touch & Choice will be coming soon.

Exhale is a Contemporary Romance involving a love triangle between two twin brothers, Derek and Kyle Connor and Katie Elliot. Katie and the Connor Brothers have always been best-friends since birth, their Parents were best-friends and next door neighbours. So when Derek and Katie finally came out with their true feelings for each other, they are put in an awkward predicament as Kyle was always the one that professed his undying love for Katie. Their relationship gets even more difficult when a tragedy strikes their trio, their lives will never be the same...

"Inhaling in life is easy. It's the exhaling - the letting go - that's the hard part."
~ Jennifer Snyder @ Exhale

This has become one of my favourite quotes. With such a strong Introduction, it's hard not to read on. Exhale is fast-paced, straight to the point leaving you breathless in no time. However, don't let the lack of length detract you, the characters were well developed and Snyder had the Reader easily hooked into their lives and you hold your breath as you watch and wait to see what happens to them, I think that this shows fantastic writing ability, to have your Readers hooked and caring for your characters in such a short time. 

Despite being simply written, the emotions behind each word has you feeling the story, not just reading it. I felt for the characters and I really felt like I was personally going through their tragedy, their hopes and dreams and their disappointment and happiness. Exhale is an emotional ride that I thoroughly enjoyed. It's rare for an ending to satisfy most readers, but I must say, Exhale had a brilliant ending, that wrapped the story up beautifully, it's actually one of the finer points of this book.

This is theoretically the 3rd book I've read by Snyder, the first two being in the Paranormal genre, Exhale being Romance, and I have to say, no matter what genre she is writing I've thoroughly enjoyed her words, her story-telling and her plot creation. As I had previously mentioned, she is fast-becoming a favourite! 

Great Read!!!
