5 Stars

And the award for most improved writer goes to ....Tasha Ivey

Well what a difference a book makes. After reading Destiny Ever-Changing going into Every Breath I hate to say it but I wasn’t expecting too much. But man an awesome surprise was waiting for me within these pages. Tasha has proven to be the type of person that can grow, take on constructive criticism and get better and better.


How does someone give their heart away when they don’t have all of the pieces?

Not that Makenna really wants a second chance at love anyway. She is stuck in her tragic past, secretly living every day for her deceased fiancĂ©, while her new boyfriend, Drew, is gently nudging her into the present. 

Desperate to appear normal again, she slaps on a happy face and goes through the motions of a normal, healthy relationship—but with the exception of even a single kiss. And she’s okay with pretending, but Drew needs more than she’s willing to give.

Surprisingly, it’s an innocent letter from a soldier halfway around the world that has her seeing life differently. Sawyer is at his breaking point, and his depression sucks him in deeper every day. Makennas becomes his only lifeline to home, and he’s hanging on by a very weak thread. 

By helping him, Makenna learns to let go of grief before she’s left with only a ghost of the woman she once was, finally freeing her from guilt and showing her that it is possible to love again. But when she discovers that both of the men in her life are hiding something, she makes two shocking revelations.
One of them is insanely in love with her, and one of them destroyed her happy ever after. 

Even though a fairytale ending does await her, is she willing to face her own demons to fight for it?

What I thought

The writing in this book was sensational, I just love Tasha Ivey's style, I was sucked in so completely from the very first page and didn’t put the book down till I think it was about 2 in the morning. I just absorbed it. I felt really connected to the characters, and instantly loved them!! I really liked the supporting cast, too often they are just there for no real purpose at all, but each and every one of them had a role to play and I really want to know more about Doctor Dalton!!!

This was a rather emotional book in parts the only one flaw I had with it was the timing I felt 18 months was a little rushed for her friends to be getting on her case, but that was more my issue that anything else. I really feel Makennas thoughts, feelings, emotions and reactions were so well done, I felt what she felt and really sympathized with her. And Sawyer…Swoon!!

There is also a couple of twists that I honestly didn’t see one of them coming, and well not to toot my own horn or anything but I am rather good at seeing twist coming, so kudos to you Tasha!!

I now eagerly await the next book in this series, yes it is now a series …Yay but any book she writes!!
