Exhale

Inhaling in life is easy. It’s the exhaling—the letting go— that’s the hard part. Katie Elliot has always known the Conner twins. For years she secretly pined after one, while playfully averting the advances of the other. Once upon a time, she was fine with that. Then came the moment when her twin of preference kissed her and changed everything. As if realizing love can be complex—even when it’s reciprocated—isn’t hard enough, tragedy strikes, tearing Katie and the boy she’s always desired apart. Finding herself torn between love and guilt, Katie must learn when it’s acceptable to let go—when it’s finally okay to exhale.

*Exhale is on sale for .99. On Dec. 11 it will go to the regular price.*

EXCERPT:
Inhaling in life is easy. It’s the exhaling—the letting go— that’s the hard part. This was something I learned over the course of a few months. It became a permanent thought, something that took up residence in my mind, something never to be forgotten.

I had known the Conner boys my entire life. They had always been my next-door neighbors. Our mothers had been best friends growing up and our dads played golf together on Sunday afternoons. The Connor boys were always there, always a part of me.

There was a running joke among our mothers…a joke about which twin I would eventually end up with. At least, I had always thought of it as a joke, until we began growing up and things started to change. This was when I realized the true harshness of life—how it can blindside you with the most difficult decisions and how sometimes, when it comes to those decisions, we don’t really get a say…sometimes, Fate makes the choice for us.
