Book Synopsis:

I can’t breathe. And I don’t want to breathe.I don’t want to breathe my air.I’d rather embed our veins together so his oxygen can flow into me.I’d rather us be one…

Keatyn had no idea how much I needed her. With each passing day that went by without touching her… kissing her… I became more ill.Atlas fell in love with me when he thought it was impossible…

I fell in love with him knowing it was guaranteed. I wanted Keatyn to be so in love with me that I became a second pair of skin to her. So engraved in her that she was unable to breathe unless I exhaled first…

But I had secrets. And she had silent insecurities. With everything combined, we were a disaster waiting to explode.

My Review:

I finished this book with a lot of mixed feelings. On the plus side, the individual characters were great! They each had their own personality that shined bright, especially the brothers and Coco. For them to have been the secondary characters I think I enjoyed them the most. The overall storyline was great, but the process to finish it out was a little all over the place. To me, it felt like I was reading multiple stories rather than one and it wasn’t because the book was literally broken into 2 parts. Each storyline that was introduced had great bones, but there was a bit of a disconnect when putting everything together and some things just didn’t make sense. A lot of parts felt unnecessarily drawn out. However, the overall story kept me interested to the point that I absolutely want to read the next books featuring the other brothers.
