My not-so-secret affair with romance novels
Jillian had a plan: celebrate the end of her first year of college with an amazing summer full of beaches, barbecues, 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.
This is the first book that I’ve read by author Sarah M. Ross, and if Inhale Exhale is any indication of her writing skills, it won’t be the last. She’s created a beautiful story about Jillian and Grant, two people with plans for the future – plans that didn’t include another relationship. As they get to know one another, both fight their attraction. But as the friendship blossoms, so do their feelings… and both Jillian and Grant must decide whether romance is worth sacrificing the plans they made for themselves.
Inhale Exhale gives us both characters’ perspectives. I happen to like Jillian and Grant together, but I’ve got to admit.. I might have a bit of a crush on Grant, and getting his POV was a wonderful bonus! From beginning to end, I enjoyed this story. The prologue had me hooked, and from then on, I couldn’t put it down. Jillian and Grant’s relationship made me smile the entire time I was reading. The flirting, the way they got along so well – I loved it all! I also really liked Jillian’s best friends because their antics had me laughing throughout.
This was a fantastic, and very enjoyable read. I highly recommend it!

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!
