The air he breathes (Elements Series #1) by Brittainy C. Cherry
I was warned about Tristan Cole.
“Stay away from him,” people said.
It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster.
But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me.
We were both empty.
We were both looking for something else. Something more.
We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays.
Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.

Ok, so my thoughts are fighting on what to think of this book. One part of me relates with the knowledge that unfortunately comes with loosing someone close to you, someone you love, and the struggle to overcome the emptiness that comes along, and hey.. I get it… people cope however they can to get over it!! I do think that, and encourage everyone to be strong and find the way their life can move on… but… yes, there’s a but… I don t think that how 2 empty souls, Liz and Tristen found that way of coping. Kind of feels a bit unhealthy to use one’s body to try to keep the memory of your lost spouse, especially since they both are quite broken.
I love a book of second chances, I honestly believe in second chances, but please do that in a healthy way. I do not recommend this book to people who still struggle to overcome a loss in their life.
This book was my second read from Brittainy C. Cherry, after a lot of recommendation to start the “Elements” series with “The gravity between us”, a book which I absolutely loved, loved, loved. Check the review here if you want to read it.
Liz and Tristan met when she comes back into town, and soon find out they are neighbors and both lost their husband / wife and child. Their love develops quite quick for my taste and it feels a bit unhealthy in the beginning, until they start to see who they really are. Liz has a daughter, Emma, which is just a little bundle of joy, and as a 5-year-old, brings smiles on both their faces every so often. Along comes a bad guy, and they soon fight to keep their loved ones safe.
The bad part about this book is that is it so familiar to me that I don t remember if I have read it before, or found some close similarities with other book. Since I don t remember reading it, I honestly can give more then 3 star reviews. This is the lowest I give to books I finish reading but never ever want to re-read again.
In the last year I’ve read so many wonderful books, that I have become a bit demanding on the books I want to love, that is why I doesn t come easy for me to rate higher.
