Just Remember to Breathe by Charles Sheehan-Miles
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Alex Thompson’s life is
following the script. A pre-law student at Columbia University, she’s
focused on her grades, her life and her future. The last thing she needs
is to reconnect with the boy who broke her heart.
comes home from Afghanistan severely injured and knows that the one
thing he cannot do is drag Alex into the mess he’s made of his life.
Dylan and Alex are assigned to the same work study program and are
forced to work side by side, they have to make new ground rules to keep
from killing each other.
Only problem is, they keep breaking the rules.
The first rule is to never, ever talk about how they fell in love.
She hadnt heard from the love of her life in years and one day there he was. Alex didnt think Dylan would ever come back to her. He was so upset with her after she told him over skype that she didnt know if could keep up the long distance relationship. She was so lonely and a night a drinking had caused her to say the unthinkable.
Unbeknownst to her Dylan saw something that tore his heart into a million pieces. After the hurt he had gone through as child he wouldnt let someone willingly tear him down. So he disappeared. His lack of judgement cause his platoon to take another night shift and before they all knew it Dylan was laid up.
Months later Dylan is sitting by an office to meet the author he will be working for while he attends college and instead he sees the one person he thought he'd erased from his heart. Boy was he wrong. Those same feelings from long ago come rushing back and he's falling hard, all over again.
Alex and Dylan try to have another go at the romance they once shared but its not enough. Dylan still has doubts and it drives Alex away but not without letting Dylan know that she will love him always and until he can figure out what he wants she wont stick around and wait for him. In the end Dylan finally sees things clearly. Yes he may get hurt, yes things are uncertain but with Alex by his side he can work through anything.
very sweet love lost and found again story.
