Inhale Exhale by Sarah M. Ross

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 came 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.

Can I just say that I am speechless after reading this book. I have never had so many emotions flying through me. I mean I was reading minding my own business when Grant and Jillian invaded my heart! Who does that?????? Well Sarah Ross does that because she captured my heart with this book. I have never read a story where I am so caught up my eyes are blurry from reading. My adrenaline was pumping something fierce for Jillian as she had to make some seriously tough choices but in the end she got there and the decisions she made where the right ones for her. Jillian is just finishing up her freshmen year at college and oh what a great year she has had. She plans on going home and hanging out with her two best friends and boyfriend. She is planning on going to the beach and partying it but what she gets when she gets home is anything but that. First her mother who I will call a control freak gets her a summer job and she starts like right away and then her boyfriend Christian is acting like a jerk towards by hanging out with his band instead of being with her. As all this is going on Jillian is wondering if she is in a dream because she loves Christian but she knows there is something different about him and when she starts her new job she meets Grant the hot as hell IT guy. Things get a little complicated for Jillian because she is starting to develop feelings for Grant and she is not sure how or why because she knows she loves Christian and wants to be with him. But Grant is there and he is different with her. Grant is this IT guy who has his life mapped out and he has set goals and he is going to pursue his goals and dreams at any cost. Grant is finishing up his Masters and his plan is to go on and intern at Google in there IT department. Grant is focused but one moment with Jillian and all that goes out the window. Grant knows he never wanted a girl or love to come between his dreams but Jillian came in like a storm and is staying as long as she likes. Just when things start to look clear to Jillian and Grant tragedy strikes not once but twice for Jillian and what she will have to chose will either make her or break her. She is vulnerable and Grant and her best friends are there for her. As far as Christian goes he get what he deserves because he is a scum bag and when he realizes that he may have lost Jillian for good he wants to do whatever it takes to keep her. What will Jillian chose? Her heart or her familiars? Will Grant be able to get past his crazy all or nothing plan? Will Grant and Jillian become a couple? This is a MUST READ story that will rock your world and make you INHALE and then EXHALE to stop from crying!

I don't write spoilers so I will try to write without spoilers. This book by Sarah M Ross is different thing anything she has written in the past. I have read all of her books, and loved them all.  Inhale,Exhale took her writing to a new level, and I thought it was really good. It's about a woman named Jillian who is going through  some things that I can see actually happening in real life, but when she meets a man named Grant her life is turned upside down (in a good way).  I loved her other series, and when I heard she had a new book coming out that was a NA Contemporary  novel I wasn't sure if I would like it because that's not something I would normally read. But I really loved it, and this is so well written I would definitely read more like this from her is she wrote more.  I can't wait to see what else Sarah Has in store for us, and look forward to reading more of her books.  So I loved it, and thought it was well written and really enjoyed it.  I was bummed a little when I finished this book, but all good things come to an end at some point.

Why smile? Simply because Sarah Ross has done it again with another hit. Inhale - Some girls are trying so hard to make a relationship work that they don't see or ignore what is going on right in front of them. Exhale - When everything becomes clear and you see what someone really is, both good and bad. Inhale - When you make the decision to move on and something bad happens. Exhale - You know you've done the right thing and come out ahead. Jillian and Grant learn that best laid plans sometimes aren't what you need. This is a wonderful story and a must read for anyone who thinks they have their life planned out.

Read it, Love it, Smother it! I don't do spoilers and you know how to read the blurb! Lets start off with one word..Speechless! I seriously fell in love with this book right off the bat, read it in one sitting tell I sucked it dry! This is a NA contemporary (18+ cont.), so warning if this isn't what your looking for don't read (go check out her other series that are YA and amazing!). BUT if your looking for a beautiful story about two people falling in love with trial and errors that come along with relationships, this is defiantly a story for you! Everything from start to end is sexy, romantic and tugs on your heart strings!! Side note: I was so happy that we got both Jillian and Grant POV through out the book! I think what I liked best about this book was that not only was the story line written beautifully but it was believable and easy to fall in love with, Sarah did an amazing job in handling the issues dealt with in this book . The characters were the same way, each one you liked or hate but you could relate to on a certain level with something somewhere in your life. Oh duh GRANT! He is a very swoon worthy book boyfriend! You fall for him fast and hard, through his good moments and his bad moments.  I rather enjoyed all the characters, Jillian, her best friends, Ava and Trish (who by the way are hilarious and had me laughing) and even Christian, he was horrible but a well needed character in the story. Overall Great set of characters that completed the book in every way. Even better yet..NO cliffhanger!! It had such a wonderful wrap up at the end with a pretty red bow, and ill admit that's hard to find in books! This is a MUST read I recommend to anyone and everyone who is a fan of the New Adult genre, Thank you Sarah for another great read! I look forward to your next release!

had potential. This book had a lot of potential. It did not live up to it. It started out really good - then just went downhill from there. I'm not sure what happened, there was a good story going. It was like she wanted to cram a lot into a short book and wasn't sure how to get it all in there so didn't delve enough into things to really have them feel real. It just fell short.

I loved this story. I loved that it was a quick read, and did not slow down at all. Ms. Ross pulls you in from the very first page. She has created a cast of vivid and amazing characters. The tension is amazing, and wonderfully swoon worthy. Grant. What can I say about Grant? If he worked in my IT department. yes, I would be one of those women breaking my computer on purpose. No questions asked. He is a mouthwatering, sculpted, and scrumptious specimen of a man. Jillian. Love her. She's sweet, and committed. (even if it is to the total wrong guy)... Friends and Cast of Characters. Love them all. Even if you don't like someone ::coughchristiancough:: you like them by the end. Definitely, pick this one up! Sooooo good!!!!!

I received an e-copy of this book from the publishers at NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have really developed a love affair with books of the New Adult genre. I find them to be a great middle ground for the raunchiness of erotica or adult romance and the demure and more reserved love stories of young adult. When going through NetGalley's new stock of books and researching them a bit on Goodreads, I found this little gem by Sarah M. Ross. I have a few of her books that I acquired from Amazon as Freebies but I had not yet read anything by Ross. Since I have been on a streak with reading new authors I hadn't really read before, I decided to add Ross to my slowly growing list in hopes that I may be able to add her to another list. My favorite authors list. Inhale, Exhale opens with Jillian taking a job at Allegro, an advertising firm with a bustling sales department. She was hired in the call center to field calls and transfer them to the appropriate person requested (much like a receptionist). The problem is, Jillian is seriously technologically challenged. Where most girls who are almost twenty have cell phones and electronics permanently attached to their bodies 24/7, Jillian is more more happy with the spoken word than the texted, tweeted, or typed. As a linguistics major, she was looking forward to having some down time between semesters, but her mother decided she needed a summer job instead. With her slow immersion into the world of technology, it is no surprise that the IT department gets a run for their money. Enter Grant. Grant has a plan that leaves no room for romance or even a social life. He is determined to keep his head down until he completes his Masters and leaves the sweltering heat of Georgia for the tranquil seas of California. His dream is to work for Google and that dream is almost within reach. He doesn't have time to answer the desperate calls of a lost new girl with chronic computer issues. Until he lays eyes on said girl. Then all his dreams seem a bit empty. He is determined that Jillian will be his. Even with the knowledge of her having a boyfriend and his desire to respect that, he can't seem to keep away. Now Jillian and Grant are forced to fight their brewing emotions in hopes of keeping their dreams alive. Jillian wishes to continue her degree and marry her boyfriend of four years sans the hunky IT worker. Grant hopes to move forward in his career with no distractions, including the pretty girl in the cubicle across the way. Can the two continue to deny their attraction for each other? Yet another book that seems to have dragged me in and hooked me from the start. I really had no love for Jillian's boyfriend from the very start and it only got worse as the story progressed. I was team Grant all the way and found myself grinding my teeth much like Grant's character every time the protagonists tried to keep their romance from blossoming. I had a bit of a hard time with Grant's ambition causing him to become socially stunted. Even with his determination I couldn't understand why he couldn't have a social life or a love interest too. I understand he really wants that job at Google, but can he not focus on school and spend time with friends? Maybe it's because I too am an incredibly ambitious college student who also has a love life and friends, that makes it difficult for me to grasp. It was my only issue. And it was a tiny sesame seed sized issue. Barely worth mentioning... barely. Inhale, Exhale is a dramatic and devastatingly heartwarming tale the likes of which does great pride to the New Adult Contemporary Romance genre.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Sarah M. Ross, Indie Inked, and Netgalley.) 19-year-old Jillian is home from university for the summer, and starting a job that her mother has secured for her. The IT guy Grant at her new job is gorgeous, and she feels instantly attracted to him. The problem is her boyfriend of 4 years – Christian, who she still loves. Who will Jillian choose? Can she leave Christian after 4 years together? And does Christian really deserve her? This was a good new adult romance, and I really enjoyed it. Jillian was a sweet girl who tried to do the right thing, and felt guilty at even dreaming about another man whilst she was in a relationship with Christian. It was obvious that she felt more for Grant than she felt for Christian though, and it was also obvious how much she tried to squash her feelings. The storyline in this was pretty good, and I didn’t immediately guess what would happen. The romance between Jillian and Grant was really sweet, and it was nice to see how they flirted with little glances and gestures rather than being blatant. When they did eventually give in to their attraction it was hot! The pages sizzled with the chemistry between them, and this was definitely one of those books where you find yourself going back to re-read certain scenes because they were so good! The ending was also good, and I was pleased with how things turned out. I was a little hesitant over whether some details were 100% accurate at points, but this didn’t interfere with my enjoyment of the story. Overall; a good new adult romance. 7.5 out of 10

I read this book a week ago and am still not sure what to write in the review. I really liked this book. I did. The characters were very well developed and flawed in their own way. The good: The plot was great, the characters were great, and the story was realistic. The bad: The loser boyfriend and her naivety. Enough said. The smexy: This book had a lot of sexy scenes that were well written. Overall: I think this is a great addition to the new adult genre and recommend it to others. I give this book four glittery stars for being a great read!

I realy enjoyed this book so much. I loved the characters. The story as a whole was amazing. There's happiness and sadness. The sex scenes are great and Grant sounds amazing! However, as wonderful as this book is, the ending was too abrupt. There should most certainly be a sequel to this book! If it weren't such an abrupt ending I most definitely would have given it 5 stars. The premise of this story is definitely one to be aware of. I worked at a jail for 16 years before I had a stroke and domestic violence is too high and the laws are to lienient in the US. If you suspect or know of anyone who is being abused please don't look the other way.

'Inhale Exhale' was a nice addition to the New Adult genre of books. The characters and story were engaging, and, as I read, I definitely wanted to find out where things were going to end up. There have been negative comments about the actions of the heroine, and, while I don't condone it, I really did understand. There was an actual plot, good character development, and, except for a few grammatical issues (what can I say, I was an English major!), largely well written. I think that the story will resonate with readers of the age of the characters, as college, first jobs, and finding themselves are what they are dealing with in their own lives. I would recommend this book, and look forward to reading more from Sarah M. Ross.
