Below is a teaser, the first few official paragraphs of Breathe Out. You have been warned that below is a SPOILER, so continue reading at your own risk . . . (ENJOY!)
Breathe In left off on Chapter 46 with . . . well, I’m not going to say what happened if you haven’t read it, so go read it now before continuing. 🙂
Breathe Out – Beginning of Chapter 47 (snip bit)
As I wake from unrestful slumber, the memories of last night flood my brain, temporarily dulling the pain in my head and sinfully exciting my sex.My eyes open just a tiny little bit as my body staggers to the bathroom from the throbbing need to pee.The very sensation of relieving myself stimulates my clitoris, reminding me of Joe’s tongue swirling over it last night.God — I want him.I want him even more now than I did before last night.
Strolling back into my bedroom, my eyes try to focus on the clock.It’s just after eight in the morning, indicating that it’s not too early to text Anna that I’ll come and get Sadie.Taking out my phone, I momentarily panic, not sure why it isn’t working.Oh, yeah — I remember now.I turned it off in the cab when Joe tried to call me for the third time after I left his hotel room in a hurry at two in the morning.
Once my phone turns on, it rapidly buzzes at me, alerting that there are multiple text and voicemail messages.Ignoring them, I text Anna.“I’m home.Let me know when you’re free and I’ll come get Sadie.”
Scared to confront my actions from last night, I decide to only see who contacted me.Jared hasn’t written back to my message from two twenty-nine saying that I was going home.However, there are three texts messages, six missed calls and two voice messages from Joe.My finger hovers over the text message icon, but I can’t will myself to look — even though I want to.
It takes Anna five minutes to write back that she’s about to run some errands, so she’ll stop by in a few minutes with Sadie.I don’t have enough time to shower, to really shower before Anna gets here, so I decide to wash my face, brush my hair and teeth and change.I’m not interested in looking like a person who just had a hot, erotic, mind-blowing night of sex and didn’t bother to rinse off before having visitors.
The sex — God — was it good.It was better than good.It was — there are no words to describe it, because I’ve never had sex like that before.Is that even possible?It can’t be.It must have been a fluke — a first-time luck kind of thing.My curiosity is peaked.I definitely need to fuck Joe again to find out.Will he want to?I mean — maybe it wasn’t that good for him.Maybe I’m just left wondering and will never know.Is this what it’s like for some of the men I’ve slept with only once?Is that why Chris is the way he is with me?This is torture — sheer torture!
The apartment buzzer goes off right as I’m in the middle of unpacking the bags I took with me for Maggie’s and Henry’s wedding weekend.
“Hi, Anna. It’s open.Just come right in when you get up here,” I instruct with my finger on the intercom button.
The sound of Sadie’s paws running across the wooden floor energizes me as I finish checking myself in the bathroom.Sadie and I eagerly greet each other at the base of my bed.
“Hey, pretty girl!”My hands rub Sadie in all her favorite places as she bangs into my body, almost making me fall from my squatting position.“I missed you too, sweetie!”
Sadie follows me the few steps out to the living room as I go to meet Anna.My eyes deliberately blink a second and third time when I don’t see Anna in my apartment — I see Joe.

I know you’re dying to get your fix of Joe Covelli and so am I. Some of you were a little irritated with Emma at the end of book one, Breathe In, but lets just say . . . there’s a lot more of Joe to cum!
If you haven’t seen it already, Breathe In has been reviewed by the wonderful Danielle from Universal Creativity Inc. Danielle reached out to me just before the release of Breathe In, and with a busy college schedule, Danielle took probably most of her free time to begin the journey of Emma’s story. I’ll let the review speak for itself, but I will repeatedly say THANK YOU to Danielle for her kind words and that I’m really excited that she enjoyed the story.
Here’s a little of what Danielle said about Breathe In:
I loved reading this debut novel by Martha Sweeney. She created perfect masterpiece that will continued to be read by many as the years come. Her novel is one that is hard to put down until every last juicy and intriguing page has been read. Perfect plot, stunning creativity, and a romance that will leave you completely undone.
Be sure to stop by Danielle’s blog for many other great book reviews and recommendations. She reads a variety of genres as well as offer writing course and other cool things to anyone who is considering on becoming an author! You can connect with Danielle on Goodreads.com too!
Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to seeing what you think of Breathe In.
You’ve waited and the time has finally come to see the official cover for Breathe Out, book #2 of the Just Breathe series. Are you ready? Are you sure?

I won’t give any spoilers here for those of you who have yet to read Breathe In, book #1 of the Just Breathe series, but . . . let’s just say that things become intense for Emma as her ‘Rules’ hang over her head. Will she cave? Will she break? Will she maintain control?
As some of you are aware, I recently encountered a challenge with my Mac. The Beast decided to die – plan and simple. While she was being revived by the wonderful people at Apple, I was biting my nails wondering what chapters were lost for Breathe Out. There was a backup of my computer, but it hadn’t been backed-up for several days prior to the crash. (To see some of the process, check out my Instagram feed @marthasweeneyauthor.)
Luckily when the Beast returned, I found out that only the last five chapters were missing – none should have been gone. I was able to rewrite the final chapter on my husband’s computer while waiting for the repairs and as soon as the Beast was back, she and I had a come to Jesus moment before finishing the other chapters. Now, I’m pleased to announce that Breathe Out is officially written.
From finding out that there were in fact missing chapters, and to prevent an event like this in the future, I’ve decided to start using a cloud-based backup system for documents. I’m not a big fan of cloud security, but I’m less of a fan of having to rewrite chapters.
What does this mean? All in all, I was hoping to have Breathe Out edited and formatted to be released in August 2015. That still might be a possibility, but I need to have the time to finish editing before giving the final release date. I’m also the person who does the cover art for the books, so that has to be factored into the time delay. Worse case scenario, the release for Breathe Out will be scheduled the following month, September 2015.
I will definitely keep you ladies posted.
Thank you to all of you who have purchased, read and/or reviewed Breathe In. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Breathe Out.
