The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I bought this book because when it came out, it had a lot of buzz.
I didn't love love this story, but it was good.
I think that there is an ease in the writing that makes it quick to get into.
The highlight of the book was for me, our male lead, Tristan. He was a very standout character. Broken. Rough around the edges but highly compelling.
I wasn't a huge fan of the heroine, Elizabeth. She had the whole "the protagonist who all guys go for because she's so beautiful and amazing, but you think she is bland" thing going on. She had her fair share of tragedy but I didn't feel it, as I did with Tristan.
I didn't like Faye, the best friend of Elizabeth. Everyone said she was hilarious but she was too over the top with the whole "I'm blunt, I say outrageous things that are funny" - I thought she was reckless and needed to respect herself more.
I do like the twist towards the end. The villain was someone unexpected and super psycho. Kudos to the author there.
This book makes references to Harry Potter. That's a plus.
Minus of the book was the cheesy dialogue in those life reflecting moments. I felt I had read them before. A bit too "the notebook" for me. And I know romance novels have common themes, ideas, because love is love but the ones in this book seemed unoriginal to me. Like, too cliché.
3/5 for this book.
