Ten Tiny Breaths - K.A. Tucker (2013)

Kacey Cleary has not been OK for four years. The day her entire life changed left a scar so deep that no one can ever get through to her, not even her little sister, Livie. But when their uncle makes a pass for Livie, Kacey takes matters into her own hands and takes Livie to Florida in the middle of the night to start fresh. Kacey eventually makes friends with her neighbour, who gets her a job. She also can't fight the attraction to her other neighbour, Trent. He's gorgeous and seems to only have eyes for her. But what he doesn't understand is that she's so damaged she can't even hold anyone's hand. Trent seems to have it all together and Kacey doesn't want to take him down with her. What she couldn't possibly know is that Trent is drowning in his own remorse and it's pushed him to do things no one would ever imagine. With a shocking, brilliant and completely unexpected twist, this story will have you on the edge of your seat rooting for Kacey to overcome her demons and get on with her life. While the New Adult genre seems to have a repetitive issue with character creation - all the men are damaged and the women want to rescue them from their demons - this story stands out from the rest. It's heartfelt and easy to see how Kacey got to where she is now. (AS)
