[Blog Tour] Breeze of Life - Kirsty Dallas

Recommended for 17 years+. This book contains language which some may find offensive and sexual situations.

Breeze of Life

Bree ‘Breeze’ Delany never imagined her life could sink so deep. That such intense pain could take up residence in her heart and shred her soul to pieces. And all it had taken was one little word to drag Bree to the depths of this despair, cancer. 

It took just one person to pull Bree from the darkness, her best friend Harper Somerville. Determined to show his Breeze the beauty in life no matter how short or long it is, Harper takes Bree on the road trip of a life time. 

Not only does Harper remind Bree how exciting and beautiful life is, but he also shows her a passion and love that she has only read about in her naughty romance novels. 

Screw happily ever afters, perhaps life was meant to be lived with happily ever nows…



“I need to cross off a never”

“This man really was my happy pill. He should come with a warning, ‘best served in small doses’. To hell with that, I wanted to overdoes on his joy and enthusiasm.”

“I could feel him everywhere, in me, on me, around me, but nothing compared to the feeling of him in my heart. Harper possessed me on every level.”

“Baby, I’m not going to lie. If this fucking cancer beats you, I will be crushed. Physically and emotionally beaten, but I promise you, I’ll be beaten but not down. I’ll go on, a big damn piece of me will be missing, you’ll take my heart with you and no other person will ever touch it. I’ll live for you Breeze, Until I see you again.”

“I'm crossing a Never have I off my list. I have never confessed my goofy-footed, boxer dropping smile wearing, all consuming, love for Kirsty's words. (Ok I have, but not today.. so it still counts!) I've said I loved you before, and that you're in the top 2 of my favorite Aussies EVER. HOWEVER. You leave me mind blown, speechless, and emotional. You are my past, my present, and my future favorite butt-munch.  * I left out the swears to be facebook friendly. They were Harper approved though.*” – My post to Kirsty when I finished Breeze of Life.

One word. Fuck. That moment when you’re done reading and all you can do is sigh, and with immense feeling say “Fuck” and let out that breath you’ve been holding. THAT is what Kirsty Dallas does to me.  Breeze of Life was so much more than I thought it would be.  I mean, Tons of books leave me a hot mess with a disaster of emotions to deal with… but Breeze of Life, I can’t even begin to explain. When I first started reading this I was very apprehensive. Not about Kristy, or her writing, but the fact that it was about cancer. Cancer is the one thing that REALLY gets to me. My sister had Lukemia when she was a kid, (she’s been in remission for over 20yrs *YAY!*) and my dad died of cancer. I get very anxious and nervous about books that have to deal with cancer because it hurts me more, on a deeper level, and dredges up feelings that I just don’t want to think about. Memories that I would like to have forgotten.  

Breeze of Life was about the after. Living life after treatment can be one of the most difficult things you’ll ever have to live through. This book really shows you the importance of family and friends during such a crucial time. God, I loved this story. Breeze and Harper were outstanding and are the complete definition of soul mates.  All of the characters in this story are so fierce and passionate. Mia, was probably my favorite of the support characters. She most definitely put the sass back in sassy. At 15, dealing with the life she’s been dealt… she’s so upbeat and positive. Then George (Which happened to be my dad’s name) was the father that Breeze never had. Hmm, it must be something with the name!?

Once you read this you’ll never be able to get over Harper. He is just one of a kind spectacular. I don’t even know how to describe him, besides perfect. Harper is  passionate, fierce, goofy, caring, loving, ok let’s just say he’s EVERYTHING you want in a man. Damn you Kirsty, setting me up for failure! Reading with my book boyfriends / book husbands just leaves me wanting more, and makes me feel like I’m lacking. (Sorry honey, but you’re no book husband!) Maybe men should read these books so that they get an idea of what we REALLY want and how we SHOULD be treated. Anyways, Fuck! I can’t stop myself. I think of Harper and I just go on a tangent. A mouthy tangent at that… Mmhmm. Yep. 

Seriously, if you haven’t decided to read this after my ranting and raving… I don’t know what to do with you. Except put the book in front of you and demand you to read it! This is a story you DON’T want to miss. Kirsty’s words really do blow me out of the water. I loved the surfing lingo, and the road trip, and everything in between. I was even ok with the loop she threw me for at the end. Oh. My. God. I was BAWLING my eyes out.  I knew it couldn’t be true. Was it!? Nooo. Don’t. WHY!? I can’t tell you what happens, that’s for you to find out. Believe me, you WANT to find out.  

Thank you, Kirsty for your beautiful words. You’re an inspiration.  I can’t wait to read more from you and I hope that even my adoration will keep you writing.  By the way… this would make one HELL of a movie.  Just Sayin’ if the thought ever crossed your mind. Love love love you woman.  You make me laugh, cry, smile, curse, and sigh. Don’t ever stop! And One for the road… ‘FUCK!’

Kirsty DallasI'm just a little Aussie girl with a big imagination, so much to write and so little time to do it. When I'm not writing (or reading) I am kept smiling and sane (for the most part) by my 5 year old daughter. She is the light in my world. I have a wonderfully supportive family who keep me completely grounded. Trust me, they will never let any success go to my head!! And I love them for it. I enjoy ice cold ciders, barbeques, music and art. I hate cooking, in fact I think I have major kitchen allergies. My feet rarely grace anything other than flip-flops and even in the middle of a hot Aussie summer, I love my jeans!!! To sum me up in a few words (and you know how hard just a few words is for an author) ~ easy going, laid back, dreamy and passionate.

I hope you all love reading my novels as much as I love writing them.
