“I do.”
Two words woven in love.
In sickness and in health.
For better or for worse.
Til death do us part.
And death dragged us apart.
We both said these vows.
But neither of us kept them.
This is not one of those happy stories.
Life isn’t made of simple choices and happily ever afters.
It’s a dark place.
It’s not easy.
It’s full of mistakes and lessons.
It hurts.
And in the end, those two words said in love, are the same ones said in hate.
“You want a divorce?”
“I do.”


Words could never perfectly describe the abundance of emotions that took complete control over my body, mind, and soul while inhaling (pun totally intended) this breathtakingly captivating and heart shattering story. It’s been days since I have had the ability to read anything else and I am still attempting to catch my breath because this story totally sucked the life right out of me. I think this author might have just ruined me for all other books (okay so we all know that’s not completely true because I could never give up books, but let’s just say this story will ALWAYS hold a special place deep inside my heart). C.L. Matthews brilliantly constructed a unique tale so unlike anything I have ever read before…and probably unlike anything I will ever be fortunate enough to read again for as long as I live. This story gave me all the feels and it’s nearly impossible to accurately comprehend everything I experienced and the pain my heartstrings are enduring right now.

Inhale, Exhale shows the true side of human nature…the dark side we all try to hide because we don’t want others to see and judge. The author’s words were poetic and the storyline gripped my heart. These characters are beautifully flawed and you see that intertwined throughout the pages of this story. You will never be the same after reading this story and I cannot wait for you all to dive in!!!
