Breathless – Jennifer Niven ★★★★

Blurb; You were my first. Not just sex, although that was part of it, but the first to look past everything else into me. Some of the names and places have been changed, but the story is true. It’s all here because one day this will be the past, and I don’t want to forget what I went through, what I thought, what I felt, who I was. I don’t want to forget you. But most of all, I don’t want to forget me.

For her last summer before college, Claudine Henry and her mother head to a remote island off the Georgia coast. There, amidst the wild beauty of the place, she meets the free spirited Jeremiah Crew. Their chemistry is immediate and irresistible, and even though they both know that whatever they have can only last the summer, maybe one summer is enough . . .

My Review; This is one of my best friends favourite authors so ofcourse I had to read it. YA/romance. Emotional reading in parts. Claudine is an amazing main character, after her parents split she finds herself with her mother on a remote island with no phone signal. What will she do? Surely she won’t fall in love will she? That is exactly what she does. A story all about first love. Overcoming her parents break up, learning about herself & her family past. A beautiful story. Does contain sex scenes.

Devoured the majority of this in one day. Absolutely loved it. The ending annoying me. Well a certain part. No spoilers but highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me. Stunning. A read that stays with you and reminds you all about your first love. Cute.
