Inhaling in life is easy. It’s the exhaling—the letting go— that’s the hard part.

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.Smashwords

Okay, I'm just going to get straight to the point.
Exhale was a fast read. Was it because I really got into it? Sort of. Was it because I thought it was short? Yes. (For those of you wondering, it was 115 pages on my Kindle.)
This book was also basically brother versus brother for Katie's feelings. They don't literally fight, but that's just how it feels to me. That's another thing: it isn't full o action, so those of you who like action/adventure in your stories, this isn't a read for you.
I thought that when **sort of spoiler alert** Katie and Kyle got together, that they just weren't right for each other. I mean, sure it was fun and all of that for her to be with the 'bad boy' type, but he just didn't seem like the right fit for her, to me. AND Kyle wasn't even one of those good bad boys who is actually sweet and all of that. Kyle was a player and I didn't like his character at all.
His twin brother, though... I liked him. He was sweet and nice and basically everything that Kyle wasn't although they were twins.
Now, let me tell you something... There was a twist that I really wasn't expecting. I mean, seriously... I didn't really like that character, but I didn't want that to happen. It sort of put a whole kibosh on my dislike for the character. And even though she ended up with the one, I still felt a little sad. **End of sort of spoiler**
I do wish that this book was a little longer because I think that it should have took more time to develop each character and their roles in the book, so that I would feel more attached (I was a little attached to each character, but not enough to where I felt connected to them.)
So, I think that this book deserves a 3.5 in hearts....
