INHALE EXHALE Synopsis:
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.
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!

I wasn't sure about this book from the synopsis but got the opportunity to read it and thought what the hell, why not. I am so glad that I did. This book was great! From angst, sexual tension, drama, great friends and great love.
I loved Grant!!! He will definitely be a book bf one monday :)
From his self talk to loving ways, it was hard not to love him even when Grant and Jillian's moral compass may have been off for a bit but it is hard when you are drawn to one another. Timing is not always the best when fate is pulling you together.
I found myself standing beside her cubicle within five minutes of her voicemail, excited for the chance to talk to her again. I needed to punch myself in the face. - Grant
I am a pussy. I have officially handed over my boys and slapped on a vagina. - Grant
The tension and pull between Jillian and Grant was palpable especially the bowling scene. Yowza!
And when they finally cave into the pull....
"Grant! Oh my god. Please don't stop, please don't stop."
But love and soul mates are a powerful yet beautiful thing. I loved Grant & Jillian even though their journey together may have been an unconventional one.
