Goodreads synopsis:

What if the messiah and the anti-christ fell in love? Azazel is seventeen and sexually frustrated. Her biggest issue is trying to figure out why her seemingly normal boyfriend won’t sleep with her. Then Jason races into her life. He won’t say where he came from or who’s chasing him. He’s a delicious puzzle, a boy who has no problem using his fists to solve arguments or quoting Plato to justify his actions. Azazel is drawn to him. She’s obsessed with finding out his secrets. What she doesn’t know is that Jason’s secrets are entwined with her own town’s secrets. Her friends and family have conspired to use her as a pawn in a violent scheme. Soon, she will have to choose between protecting Jason and staying loyal to everyone she’s ever trusted. A story about forbidden love, fate, and free will, Breathless is Rosemary’s Baby meets The Da Vinci Code.

My review:

What I liked about Breathless:

*It was fast paced. Very fast paced. From the beginning when Jason showed up to the end. I liked books that don’t drag on.

*The romance between Azazel and Jason. Considering the circumstances, it was sweet…in its own way.

*The storyline with Azazel. To say I was stunned with the twist in the plot was an understatement.

What I disliked about Breathless:

*Azazel, at some points in the book. She comes across as a very horny teenager (well aren’t all teenagers horny at some point?) who crosses sexual lines with Todd, her boyfriend. She also came across as extremely naive and too trusting.

*Jason, at some points in the book. He just didn’t seem real. Handling a gun from 5? Trained to kill and sent on missions to do that by 17? Not real. And yes, I remember that this book isn’t real….but still.

* The whole sub plot line and what happened to the characters. Lets just say that while they had what was coming to them, I really didn’t agree with how it went about. You need to read the book to find out what I am referring to…lol.
