The Next Breath by Laurel Osterkamp

5 Star

I kiss him, choosing love over honesty, which is a choice nobody should ever have to make…" 

Robin loves sweet, responsible Nick, with his penchant for Beethoven and Ben Folds Five. But she also still loves her college boyfriend Jed, an irreverent playwright plagued with cystic fibrosis. Now Robin is struggling to reveal her secrets and confront her past, as she finally performs in the play that Jed wrote for her, eleven years ago. Will Robin have the strength to keep her promise and stay true to her heart?

Sabrina-Kate - 5 Star

I always enjoy books by Laurel Osterkamp and this was no exception. Her books make me feel like they are talking about what could be my life or at least about someone I know very well. This story rang true with the fumbling obsessive realistic way that Robin acted over her loves, past and present.

Who hasn't wondered about the one who may have gotten away? I know I certainly have at times and I suspect that if many of us were honest, we may admit to the same as well. 

The book really transported me into the story, and made me laugh out loud at times while making me so utterly melancholy others. The book alternates from current day to Robin's college days and makes you feel everything she does, and intensely! Even though I finished reading this book awhile ago, the story has stuck with me and makes me nostalgic in a way that only something that captured my heart would do.

Thank you to the author for our review copy.  All opinions are our own.
