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.

Breathe In’s Second Book Blog Review

Breathe In by Martha Sweeney


Dear Ladies,

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.

How does it work?

  • Requesting and receiving Authorgraphs are free! However, if a reader uses Amazon’s Personal Document Service to receive the Authorgraph on his/her Kindle then Amazon may charge a small delivery fee.
  • Is the Authorgraph inserted into the e-book? No, it is a separate document. This allows a reader to create a “collection” where she can keep all of her Authorgraphs together.
  • Do readers need to own a Kindle device to receive an Authorgraph?
    No, Authorgraphs are viewable on a wide variety of platforms. Readers can simply enter a regular email address at the time of their request and they will receive an email with links to download a PDF version (viewable in applications like iBooks) or an AZW version (viewable in all Kindle apps on iPad, iPhone, PC, Mac, etc.) of their Authorgraph.
  • Can Authorgraphs be personalized?  Yes! Every Authorgraph goes only to the specific reader that requested it so an author can write a custom message for each reader. In addition, readers can include a short message to the author in order to provide a bit more context for personalizing the Authorgraph.

Winner of the Breathe In Music Playlist Contest

Winner of the Breathe In Music Playlist Contest

IMG_3099Within just the first hour or two of the Breathe In Music Playlist Contest, there was a WINNER!

The requirements of the contest were to listen to the songs that were provided (playlist provided below) and to guess which song I, the author, felt matched the personality of Emma Peterson, the main character from Breathe In. One guess only and two possible songs.

The winner, Cassandra, @thebookishcrypt on Instagram and, jumped on the opportunity and nailed it with her guess. The initial theme song for Emma Peterson from Breathe In is Poison byThem&Us. There was a second song that fits Emma’s personality too, Talking Body by Tove Lo, but Poison was the official song I had chosen.

Poison by Them&Us was not the inspiration to the song, but it definitely influenced certain aspects of Emma’s character and her relationship with men.

I hope you enjoy the songs on the Playlist.

Congratulations, Cassandra! Your book is already in the mail!


(**Temporarily had to remove the song Poison by Them&Us since I have an early version.  It will be back up once the official new release of the song is live.)
