"With Every Breath" by Elizabeth Camden

About this book:

  “In the shadow of the nation's capital, Kate Livingston holds a respectable position as a government statistician when she encounters a rival from her past, the insufferable Trevor McDonough. A Harvard-trained physician, Trevor never showed the tiniest flicker of interest in Kate, and she's bewildered at the way he suddenly seeks her out. Surprising even herself, Kate agrees to Trevor's entirely unexpected and risky proposal to work side-by-side with him in his quest to rid the world of tuberculosis, a contagious and deadly disease.
   As Kate begins to unlock the mysteries of Trevor's past, she realizes there is much more to him than she could have imagined. His hidden depths may fascinate her, but his most closely guarded secrets and a shadowy enemy lurking in the background carry a serious threat to their future.
   When the truth of the past comes out, threatening to destroy everything they hold dear, how will Trevor and Kate ever overcome all that stands in their way?

Series: As of now, no. {But I would love a book about Tick!}

Spiritual Content- Kate doesn’t understand why a loving God would allow sickness (She is a Christian but does wonder); She is also scared about death; Kate has realizations about God; A few Scriptures are quoted; Talks about God, Trusting Him & How He works.

Negative Content- Minor Cussing including: a ‘shut up’, four forms of ‘blast’, eleven forms of ‘stupid’, Mentions of drinking (not-detailed); People die, an autopsy is done, tuberculosis is a major part of this story, so lungs, blood, shots, medicine, etc.

Sexual Content- a ‘b*st*rd’, a ‘wh*re’; a semi-detailed kiss; a few not-detailed kisses; Mr. Zomohkov wonders why men would have women work in their offices then says that “Men have desires” (Kate stops him from continuing); Mr. Zomohkov kisses Mrs. Zomohkov & swats her bottom; Children were born out of wedlock; Lots of Love, falling in love, the emotions, a few touches and the romance is a major part of the story.

Early High School Teens-

Older High School Teens-

My personal Rating- 
(and a half)

{Because there’s a lot of romance, I would recommend a trusted adult (or parent) read it before the girl reads it & go from there}
I was really curious about this story, but the big plot twist didn’t faze me as I saw it coming. I also wish there was more Spiritual content. And while I did like this book, because of all the romance and medical stuff I think it would be better for older girls.

 See y'all on Monday with another review!
