Reviews Every Breath

  • Melissa
    There are stories that rise from mysterious, unknown places, and others that are discovered, a gift from someone else. Found near a sandy dune, on an actual stretch of North Carolina beach, sits a community mailboxowned by no one and everyone. A character in its own right, Kindred Spirit rests atop a driftwood post, waiting to share the hopes and dreams entrusted by past visitors, along with this resounding message: love endures. Letters and phot...

    Spoilers ahead! I just finished Every Breath this morning and it turned out to be pretty good. Once I got about half way through I was leary with the direction the book was taking, but by the end it came together nicely.Hope is in a relationship that she isn't exactly content with. Her boyfriend Josh doesn't seem to be committing and after six years she wonders what their future holds. Her dad has been diagnosed with a debilitating health conditi...

    I loved this novel. For those that enjoy a timeless, classic, romantic love story....check this one out. From the beginning authors introduction from Nicholas Sparks to the very end, I was fully enraptured and captivated. As so many important novels do, it had me thinking about life and circumstance throughout reading and left me with similar questioning thoughts once I turned the last page. This book has all the makings of a love story to rememb...

    This was a simple and yet very unique love story. The love story itself was complex, as much happened around it, but the idea of having two people meet, fall in love and then go through hardships will not boggle anyones mind. Its the events that lead to those things that will fascinate the readers and make them read on and on and on until they finish this book in a single day.Thats what happened to me. I dont know if its because I was procrastina...

    Title: Every BreathSeries: StandaloneAuthor: Nicholas SparksRelease date: October 16, 2018Every Breath had a lot of promise to be a big winner for me, but unfortunately it didn't reach my expectations. Based on the synopsis, it sounded like an emotional ill-fated love story with the potential for a second chance later in life. How long can a dream survive? it poses. Mistakes were inevitable, and shed concluded that regrets could impart important...

    I really wanted to give this 5 stars before I read it, because I love Nic Spark books. However, this one had just a little too much unbelievable sap for me. Too far fetched. I disliked the 20year fast forward as well. Im both disappointed and pleased. I liked it in spots and I disliked it 🤷♀ I really wanted to give this 5 stars before I read it, because I love Nic Spark books. However, this one had just a little too much unbelievable sap f...

    What a beautiful story. It just shows you how small the world can be at times. Once I started reading it, I didnt stop. A quick one sitting read. One thing I thoroughly enjoyed about this one was Nicholas Sparks personal words within the book. It really indicated how moved he was by the true story that inspired him in writing this book. It was lovely. Theres really no other way to put it. My quick and simple overall: devastatingly beautiful ok so...
  • Angela (Reading Frenzy Book Blog)
    2.5 starsEvery Breath is the first Nicholas Sparks book I have read. I wanted to love it but, unfortunately, I was underwhelmed. The author wants us to believe that Tru and Hope fall passionately in love after spending two days together. It is not entirely improbable, but to me it felt more like two strangers forming a wonderful bond of friendship rather than starting a romance. Any sparks are tepid at best, and the declarations of love come out ...

    not the kind i was hoping for from nicholas sparks, but it was still a beautiful sappy love story. albeit one that was also too farfetched. i mean, isn't that the case with this author though?? his books seem to always have some kind of tragic irony and a touch of miracle happening inside that sometimes come off a little contrived and overdramatic. ✨ 2.5 "TEPID LOVE" stars ✨ while this author has successfully made falling in love with someone...

    2.5 starsI'm annoyed by the fact that I don't hate Sparks' books even though they annoy the crap out of me more and more. Yet I keep reading them. Wtf, Kelly? Get your shit together.My main annoyance with this one was the woman basically stayed with her shitty boyfriend instead of the hot African dude solely because she wanted children and Mr. Africa was sterile. So she gets her kids which end up barely getting mentioned because she's pining for ...
  • Amanda - Mrs B's Book Reviews
    *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com3.5 starsThe king of contemporary romance fiction returns with a brand new love story titled, Every Breath. This is a love at first sight classic romance, that sees destiny play a huge role in shaping the lives of two individuals, Tru and Hope. Sparks describes his latest novel as a classic story of lovers long denied. I think this quote perfectly summarises what you can expect when you pick up Every Breath.T...
  • Dale Harcombe
    After six years with her boyfriend Josh, Hope Anderson is not sure what comes next. Far too often the relationship between her and Josh is one that fluctuates between on and off. She needs to decide what she wants and how much she is prepared to invest in a relationship that seems to be going nowhere. The other main character is Tru (short for Truitt) Wallis, a safari guide, who has lived for many years in Zimbabwe, a country he has no intention ...
  • Justine Ridder
    My least favorite Nicholas Sparks book for sure. The story begins with what you believe is Nicholas Sparks finding a letter at Kindred Spirits in North Carolina. He feels like he must find this person to talk to first get their full story then to them about possibly writing a book on this story. He ends up getting permission, and the story officially begins. This book was insta-love which I really dislike. I felt like the book was incredibly rush...

    I'll be the first to admit I'm generally not a Nicholas Sparks fan. "They're all the same," Ive said over and over. To be honest, this one's not that much different - North Carolina, two people fall in love ridiculously fast, oh no something bad happens, it's all good cause something good happens too. But maybe that predictability was what I was in the mood for cause I actually really enjoyed this one. Still not sure why I picked it up but hey, I...

    The saccharine sweet, endearingly romantic Nicholas Sparks is back with his latest novel, Every Breath. Hope has retreated to her parents cottage in North Carolina, to prepare for the wedding of her best friend and to think about her life. Abandoned by her long-time boyfriend, she desperately wishes for a child and begins to question her life choices.

    If you want a good love story, set in recent times, then you reach for Nicholas Sparks. This book will probably be considered one of his best books. It is obvious to this reader that tremendous time was invested in its researching and composing this story. The characters are interesting and their story is intriguing. Sparks excels at creating atmosphere as well. This story has movie potential and I would not be surprised if the sales are high tha...

    Its because of you, after all, that I now believe in miracles. With us, I want to believe that anything will always be possible. I remember the first Nicholas Sparks novel I ever read. I was in 6th grade (2003) and I picked up A Walk to Remember at Walmart. It was the movie tie in cover, with Mandy Moore and Shane West holding hands which I still have to this day. I read the whole book that night and begged my mom to buy me the movie, and thankf...

    Another great read by Nicholas Sparks. I could not put this down.Hope is 36 and has been with her boyfriend for 6 years. She wants to get married and have kids and he keeps putting it off and still not acting like a grown up. Still going out with his friends all the time over being with her. They have an off again, on again relationship. This time she is in her friend's wedding and he takes off to go to Vegas with his friends and says they need a...

  • Gina *loves sunshine*
    Ive been pretty critical of Nicholas Sparks last few books. I have always admired his novels and credited him for being such a force in the Romance genre, as a male author I think it is so unique!! Ill probably repeat myself again but when he wrote The Notebook, Message in a Bottle, The True Believer duet, nights in Rodanthe, his memoir 3 weeks with my brother - he really upped his game, those were all my favorites!!! And I have to remember that ...
  • Marc Bougharios
    Romance novels arent really my genre but Ive heard a lot of good things about Nicholas Sparks and thought it was time to try and read a novel by him. Thats not the only reason I picked this book, but also because the story seemed really nice and it seemed like something I would enjoy reading. What I liked most about this novel is that its a true story and its just such a cute little romance novel with an equal amount of sad moments involved. Its ...

    Reviewed on: Ashes Books & Bobs.First, I have to thank my friend Megan for buying me this book and reading Nicholas Sparks books with me this April. After reading A Bend in the Road to start our Nicholas Sparks reading month, I was a little nervous about reading Every Breath. I didnt know if I would enjoy it as much as I hoped to maybe my tastes had changed too much.Luckily, Every Breath captured my attention from the very first page and I simpl...

    I can always rely on Nicholas sparks for a beautifully written love story, one that makes me cling to every word cry and laugh and just never want to put the book down and miss the characters as soon as I close the book when Im finished reading. Every breath introduces us to Tru Walls who travels from Zimbabwe to North Carolina to meet his biological father. Here he meets Hope Anderson. The five days Tru and Hope spend together will forever chang...
