Breathe In By Michelle Bellon
Breathe in. Breathe out. This mantra gets Tessa Benson through the day. The man she loves walks all over her, and she just wants to get by without her heart shattering to pieces. If she could find her voice, she’d scream. Everything changes in one night, when she’s snatched from the streets and tied to a bed, a camera set up to capture her dying moment. And the person who paid to watch her die…is still out there somewhere. Tessa prowls dark neighborhoods in a quest for justice, but she doesn’t find the killer. Not until they strike again…in the place Tessa is least expecting, and where it hurts worst.
Breathe In by award winning author, Michelle Bellon is a riveting story of one woman’s terrifying account of her kidnapping, torture and the vengeance she seeks. It is a must read, dark and thrilling story subjecting the reader to breathless anticipation while on the edge of their seat from beginning to end.
Tessa Benson’s love life is difficult and not so great. Sick of the relationships with the men in her life, vulnerable and struggling to find a voice of her own, Tessa decides to take a breather from her conflicted life and heads out for the night with a friend. What she had anticipated would be a fun night out to forget her troubles, turns into the worst nightmare she could ever have imagined. She is kidnapped, tortured and held captive. Her captor’s video tape the entire ordeal. Terrified her life is about to end, she puts up a fight and manages to escape. Tessa is now filled with mental and emotional pain, extreme anger and agonizes with PTSD. Determined to discover who is behind her kidnapping and find answers, she gets help from Tobin, an understanding policeman, who she connects with and begins to have feelings for.
Breathe In by Michelle Bellon is a dark, thrilling page-turner filled with suspense, twists and turns and scenes that are terrifying and nightmarish in nature. The potential suspects kept me guessing and very intrigued, which made this book skillfully written with a unique voice, well-conceived effective storyline and dynamic plot. Although this is an original piece of fiction, it does happen in real life, making it that much more of a realistic, intense and chilling story. The fact that the kidnapper’s video tapped the torture and probable death of Tessa, will have the reader thinking of all the sickos out there who get off on watching such snuff films. Despite the dark content of this book, author, Michelle Bellon draws the reader in with the clever mystery of the plot and the intensity of the emotions, actions and personalities of the characters. I loved how Tessa evolved into a strong woman who developed her own voice despite her toxic relationships, and devastating, life-altering events. The resulting violent tendencies she began to display (no matter how severe or wrong), I felt, were totally justified and actually, I would have, most likely, done the same thing. This exceedingly interesting book is thought-provoking and will engage the reader on so many levels. Breathe In by Michelle Bellon is compelling, engrossing and gripping with a fast-paced narrative, strong original plot, well developed realistic and likable characters who readers will fully connect with and be pulling for throughout. The ending is completely gratifying, pleasing readers that vengeance prevailed.
Chick Lit Café absolutely recommends Breathe In a mysterious, suspense filled thriller written by remarkable writer, storyteller and author, Michelle Bellon.
