BREATHE (London Love) Kindle Edition
Meet Luke. He was once the rich kid who'd just been gifted his first car, and now he doesn't even own a bike. He's also slumming it in a house full of ungrateful siblings and his first trip to the Food-bank gave him some goddamn emotional scars. Life is getting better though, and he's acing it at college, as well as making some brilliant new friends. Well except for that stuck up twatwaffle Ryan who won't talk to him and refuses to like his brilliant social media posts....
The first book in Sophia Soames' London Love Series. These standalone novels will follow the ups and downs of couples living extraordinary ordinary London lives.

Firstly, I'm going to declare that I absolutely adore Sophia Soames as an author. I find her stories refreshing and interesting and her writing style is excellent.
Sophia's characters are flawed and they are challenging but they learn and there is hope. It took me a long time to accept Ryan/Joey. He is very self centred and this made me dislike him to an extent. He does show promise though. Luke is much more likeable and I really want him to get the happiness that he deserves. Luke's little sister is a delight and I definitely want her to have a great life.
The story is told from alternating points-of-view and I found it very easy to follow.
I wont rehash the story as this is easily found. All I want to do is recommend Breathe and any other books by Sophia Soames.

I loved Luke from the get-go, recognising many of his nervous/shy traits in one of my own kids, such as finding the bravery to express your opinion and then very subtly backtracking when the other person doesn't engage as expected; I wanted to 'mum-hug' him so many times to let him know he was worthy. Those nuances must be so difficult to articulate and just one of the reasons Ms Soames is a master of her craft.
Ryan took a bit longer to work his way into my good books, initially coming across as a tad frosty and a bit cruel, but he had his own back-story that quickly nudged my leaky eyes into action. It was lovely to see Luke's people enfold Ryan into their surprisingly functional family, helping to thaw his heart. It's also worth mentioning Ryan's mum, who gets a 'top mum' badge for keeping it real!
Sophia's boys never have it easy, all the baggage of their sometimes overwhelmingly gritty everyday lives is out there in the open for us to engage with and relate to and it's often quite painful to envisage. However, there's a pretty big flip side, along with only a handful of other authors I've read, Ms Soames writes 'love' in a way that enhances the ability to BREATHE.
I found Ryan and Luke beautiful, I loved them both and completely enjoyed reading about them, their lives and families.
Breathe made me laugh, made me cry and I know I will read it again and find something new to love about it.
You will not be disappointed reading this story. I am so grateful that it was available on KU. Additionally, I’m delighted to hear that there are two more books forthcoming in this series! I hope they, too, will be on KU.
