Jillian had a plan: celebrate the end of her first year of college with an amazing summer full of beaches, barbeques, and bonfires. When her mom insists she needs a summer job, and her boyfriend spends more time with his band than with her, Jillian’s plans go down the drain.
Grant had a plan: finish his Masters, get a great job at Google, and get the hell out of Georgia. He might be giving up some of the fun of his youth, but he knows his all work and no play method would be worth it when his dreams come true.
But things never go according to plan.
When temptation brings them together and tragedy tears them apart, Jillian and Grant will be forced to choose: fight for their dreams, or fight for each other.
Playlist for Inhale Exhale by Sarah M. Ross
When I heard that you wanted me to put together a playlist for Inhale Exhale, I’m not gonna lie, I panicked a bit. Okay more than a bit. I don’t listen to music when I write. I am one of those people who require complete silence to write. In fact, I don’t listen to music much at all (mostly just whatever is on the radio as I drive somewhere). So when someone asks me to come up with ten to fifteen songs that inspired the book, my heart raced a bit.
So what’s a girl to do who doesn’t listen to music? I consulted the experts! I asked a few friends who’ve already read the book and my mom (who also read it) what songs they thought of after reading it, and they gave me about twenty songs to choose from. After listening to each of them on Spotify, I narrowed down the choices and chose these songs that best fit the mood of the book, tone of some scenes, and personality of the characters. It’s a very eclectic mix, so they’re a little something for everyone and maybe even some new songs for your viewers!
(These are in no particular order. I will also be putting this playlist up on Spotify for people to listen to after the book is released.)

Sarah Ross started her obsession with reading at an early age, getting in trouble for sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class in elementary school. She would read any fiction book she could get her hands on. Sarah knew it was an addiction when instead of grounding her from TV or music, her mom would take away her books as punishment (The Horror!).
Her love of all things paranormal was inspired by her good friend Laurie, who convinced Sarah that books with vampires, witches, and all things shifter were amazing. After a little reluctance, she gave it a shot with the Sookie Stackhouse books, realized she was right, and the rest was history.
Sarah grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with a degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as she does for several years. She will always be a proud member of the Steelers Nation, but couldn’t take the cold and moved her frozen tush to Florida where she now lives with her family and two cats.
You will find Sarah now with her trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!
