I absolutelyloved this book. It made me laugh,cry and enjoy the love shown between two people. Felt like i was actually living the story instead of reading a novel. Hope to read more from this author. A breathe of fresh air
The Band 4: The Air We Breathe, is a beautiful fictional story of two unsuspecting people that fall for eachother like Romeo and Juliet. I loved it! I loved the simplicity of the characters and how much they all supported and cared for one another. The story flowed nicely, and the writing and editing was outstanding. It is an engaging story of romance, friendship, a boy band, and music. It’s a feel good book and a quick read; I couldn’t put it down. I was drawn in from the very beginning, engaged and smiling throughout most of the story. There are some ups and downs that the couple goes through, and many emotions bouncing around. But they have a such strong bond of friendship and love, coupled with relentless optimism, that they triumph throughout their journey together. I love books that teach me something, and this one did just that. I love the way our author Marguerite Nardone Gruen, developed the characters and their interactions with one another. I was drawn to them and their upbeat personalities and outlook on life. I felt the author really had a voice and strong direction in her mind while writing this book. Some may think that it is a fairy tale like story but I believe it is true to life. Love can be the way Marguerite Nardone Gruen has written it, and she has done it very well. It’s definitely a clean “chick lit” read, filled with the feelings of excitement and mystery associated with romantic love. This is the first book in a trilogy, and I am looking forward to reading more from this new up and coming author of love stories.. Women of all ages will love it. Thumbs way up for
