Description from the publisher:
There’s life, there’s death, and for some, there’s the in-between.

Mara Crowe was your average high school senior. She had good grades was bests friends with Ashley, and in a relationship with Van, one of the star basketball players, that was more off than on most days. She was trying to get her last year of high school all in order with less partying and more time studying. Of course, not wanting to be the party pooper, and also wanting to make sure that Van didn’t do anything to jeopardize their relationship once again, she agreed to one last party. One last night that was supposed to be fun-filled, one last night that changed the course of everything.

Max Carter was there, wherever there was at the moment. He knew he was stuck in the in-between, but wasn’t sure how to get to either side. In fact, sometimes he didn’t know which side he wanted to go to. He’d left it all behind a few months ago in a spur of the moment decision, yet he wasn’t where he thought he would end up. There were people that came and went, but no one stayed as long as he had in this place. He could watch from afar what his family and friends were doing, but he couldn’t reach out to them…he was all alone.

That was until she came. She filled that empty space that he always had. She made him laugh, cry, feel all the things he never thought he’d ever feel again…but most of all she made him love. He knew there would come a day when she would be able to choose her pathway. One day, she would leave and he would be left alone once again.

Max could help her go back, but was he willing to give up his happiness for her. Time was running out for both of them. Which path would they choose? Would they pick the one that would allow them to be together forever, or would they be separated by a time that no one knew existed?  

This is the first story in the Breathless series.  I believe they will need to be read in order.

First, I need to note that there are two Breathless series from this author and they are not related to one another.  So, this could become a point of confusion if and when either of those series have a second book (or more).

I thoroughly enjoyed this inventive walk between life and death.   Somewhere in-between the two, Max and Mara have found each other.  An easy and deep friendship turns to love, but true love is always tested.  Where will their love find them in the end – here, there, or somewhere in-between?

One caveat:  Please do not read this book if depression is an issue in your life.  I don’t want to say more than that, because I do not want to give spoilers.  If you want more specific answers and don’t mind a spoiler, I will accept personal messages on Goodreads, Facebook, or by email (pageprincess50@gmail.com). 

This is the first book that I have read from Izzibella Beau.  I hope I get to read another book from her.   ays tested.  Where will their love find them in the end - here, (or more).ted to one another.  So, this could be
