We’re celebrating the release of HOLD MY BREATH by Ginger Scott! Check out the review, teasers, and giveaway below!
Fractions of seconds can do lots of damage. One decision can ruin lives. A blink can be tragic. And loving a Hollister…can hurt like hell.
I would know.
They say the average person can hold their breath under water for two full minutes when pushed to the extremes. Will Hollister has been holding his for years. The oldest of two elite swimming brothers, Will was always a dominant force in the water. But in life, he preferred to let his younger
brother Evan be the one to shine.
Evan got the girl, and Will…he got to bury all of the secrets. A brother’s burden, the weight of it all nearly left him to drown.
The daughter of two Olympians, my path was set the day my fingertips first touched water. My future was as crystal clear as the lane I dominated in the pool—swim hard, win big, love a Hollister.
My life with Evan burned bright. He gave me arms to come home to, and a smile that fooled the world into believing everything was perfect. But it was Will who pushed me. Will…who really knew me.
And when all of the pieces fell, it was Will who started to pick them up.
In the end, the only thing that matters are those few precious seconds—and what we decide to do while we still have them in our grasp.
Oh Ginger! Ginger Scott! I really really like you!
I don’t want to sound super redundant, but, this woman is gold. I swear she is like the little engine that could. She was the underdog…..to some, but to me…….she has always been so much more!
I swear her writing becomes more after every book.
I loved this book. I love Maddy for her sweetness and her heart. I loved and felt for her when the bottom was taken out from under her. I loved her for how fierceness she was. I love how patient and good she was. She could have gone so many ways, but there was so much good in her. Will………..he might be my favorite Ginger character, and that is saying a lot. To say that I loved him, is an understatement. I felt Will. I felt his pain. I felt his struggle. I felt his determination. I left his love. I felt his endurance. I felt his burden. I just felt him. He was so well written. So well developed that I just loved him. Will and Maddy’s story was perfect. There was the right amount of sexy. The right amount of angst. The right amount of light at the end of the tunnel. I wish I could give you more and better, but this is it. It was just perfect….I wish, I had a more eloquent way to put it, but this is it.
I have to genuinely talk about what stood out to me, and that was just the storyline. It was so beautifully crafted, that I just wanted to sip it. There was such a beauty and finesse in the way this story was told, that I wish I could do it justice and quite honestly, I feel I would not give it the correct/proper amount of praise that is deserves. So, rather than butcher it up, I will leave some of my favorite moments and make sure everyone I know reads this, because it is just that good.
So I live on a perpetual edge, held up by guilt and the dull ache forever in my heart because I loved a boy, and fate stole him from me.
Maybe I need to take is magnifying glass and press it against pieces of my life.
And maybe if I hold it there long enough under the sun, I can just set all this shit on fire.
