Keep Breathing by Alexia Purdy

Keep BreathingBook Description:
‘The past doesn't define me. It's just a place I've been.’

Seth Kingston is back in town with years of regrets. Regrets for the way he left things with Penny, the hurt he caused her, and the future they could have had together. He had his reasons and now all he wants is to make amends and have a second chance at love. 

But Penny wants no part of what he’s offering. She’s accepted that life is hard, love is an illusion, and you can’t trust men. Especially men named Seth Kingston. And yet… he’s so tender with her. He’s patient, and caring.

Is it possible that he’s changed? Can they really try again?

The past has a tendency to embed its vicious talons deep into a heart, never to let go again. Penny has enough tragedy to last lifetimes and isn’t willing to let anyone scale her walls.

Can real love survive anything, even an unforgiving past?

My Thoughts:
This was a sweet romance!  Penny and Seth were perfect together, or so she thought.  Then he broke her heart and left her hurting.  That was six years ago and now he is back and wants her to give him another chance.  Penny doesn't want to even consider taking him back.  He shattered her heart and there is no way she could ever trust him again...right?  Problem for her is he is the same and yet different.  He is strong, sensitive, caring and just the whole package!  Can she forgive him enough to see if they have a future together?
I liked how Penny was capable and strong, but she had her flaws.  Like most of us, she settled in a job and that was it.  She took no risks, hadn't fulfilled her dreams in the least and wasn't dating at all.  Seth wants Penny because she was the only one he ever loved.  A lot changed and happened in his life but that never has.  I loved how persistent he was, even tracking her friend down.  Oh and Penny's best friend is wonderful!  She is going to do what is best for Penny, regardless of what even Penny says/thinks.  
This was a 4/5 for me.  I loved the sweet romance.
