Review Tour and Release Blast: Hold My Breath by Ginger Scott with Giveaway

We're celebrating the release of HOLD MY BREATH by Ginger Scott! Check out the review, teasers, and giveaway below!

HOLD MY BREATH
NA Contemporary Romance-Stand Alone
Scheduled to release: November 18, 2016

BLURB:
Fractions of seconds can do lots of damage. One decision can ruin lives. A blink can be tragic. And loving a Hollister…can hurt like hell.

I would know.

They say the average person can hold their breath under water for two full minutes when pushed to the extremes. Will Hollister has been holding his for years. The oldest of two elite swimming brothers, Will was always a dominant force in the water. But in life, he preferred to let his younger
brother Evan be the one to shine.

Evan got the girl, and Will…he got to bury all of the secrets. A brother’s burden, the weight of it all nearly left him to drown.

The daughter of two Olympians, my path was set the day my fingertips first touched water. My future was as crystal clear as the lane I dominated in the pool—swim hard, win big, love a Hollister.

My life with Evan burned bright. He gave me arms to come home to, and a smile that fooled the world into believing everything was perfect. But it was Will who pushed me. Will…who really knew me.

And when all of the pieces fell, it was Will who started to pick them up.


In the end, the only thing that matters are those few precious seconds—and what we decide to do while we still have them in our grasp.



My Review:   Ginger Scott has written, yet again, another story that will grip your heart and mind in Hold My Breath.  Will and Maddy are both athletes, swimmers actually.  Maddy's parents are both former olympic athletes who want nothing more than to see their daugher following in their footsteps. Will had been headed down the road to Olympic Gold as well, until a terrible tragedy caused their lives to change forever.

Evan, Will's brother and Maddy's boyfriend, has been dead fo a while now.  She and Will haven't spoken at all.  Anger and grief still threatens to consume her, even now.  Suddenly, she has no choice but to confront her issues and the man she has avoided because her father arranges for him to train with her.  The tension between the two is so thick you could cut it with a knife.  Gradually, these two find their way back to the friendship they once had, and the feelings that neither admitted to that were much stronger than friendship.  But without Evan, feelings of guilt, anger, love, and betryal are faced by both of them time and time again, especially one Evan' secret is revealed.

Hold My Breath is not only a gripping story that sucks you into the lives of its characters, but also a story that hurts your heart, has you cheering inside for the characters, and makes you smile all at the same time. The roller-coaster they are on as all this takes place proves to be one heck of a ride.  Once your on, all you can do at times is just hold on and go with it, experiencing emotions from one end of the scale to the other as these friends face their pain and their pasts, and find each other once again, while a love they didn't know existed emerges from the rubble of a once broken relationship.  You will definitely want to pick this story
