Breeze of Life was recommended to me from a fabulous blogger friend, Michelle at Novels on the Run. Michelle is a very big advocate for Australian authors and I couldn't resist supporting another fabulous Aussie author either. This is my first experience reading Kirsty Dallas and this was a fabulous Australian read. Ms Dallas has a fantastic style that is so vivid, Breeze of Life had me in tears throughout. This book includes a reality that is very scary for everybody dealing with the big C and D, cancer and depression. But the most fabulous aspect of this book is the love. Oh Harper you are such a hottie and so lovable. **SIGH**
Bree (Breeze) Delany is a 23 year old that has had to endure something that nobody wishes on their worst enemy, CANCER. She was diagnosed eight months ago and had to suffer this with only her neighbour, George, who is like a Father to her. Harper left to go follow his dreams on the Pro Surfing Tour and Sean (Harper's cousin) lives in Sydney. The three have been together since Breeze was 10 and now she feels all alone.
Breeze didn't want to burden anybody with her current situation and still recovering from treatment, has hidden herself away in the apartment she shares with Harper. But since he is on tour, she is depressed, all alone and scared. Breeze is asleep and awakes to find Harper sitting on her bed. She doesn't know if it's a dream or reality until he starts talking back to her.
Harper Somerville left to follow his dreams, but before leaving he kissed Breeze and told her he loved her while drunk. She didn't know whether to believe him especially when he fell into the arms of another woman straight after the declaration. Breeze has been doing nothing but thinking about death and that kiss; when Harper returns home it is a major elephant taking up room in their apartment.
This is the big question, will that kiss ruin everything they have been through the past 13 years? Harper is determined to get his loving positive Breeze back and is dragging her out of the apartment and onto a road trip with him down to Sydney. NOW the fun begins.....
Bree gets to see another side of Harper she didn't know existed. He has so many friends all over Australia and along their trip she gets to meet some amazing people. Harper is the most considerate and loving person she has ever known and he is determined to convince Breeze of his real love for her.
Breeze is constantly worried about her appearance because of the treatment she has no hair on her body, but Harper tries to show her the benefits of being hairless. Breeze has to make the tough decision to step over that line from friendship to lover and she doesn't want to get hurt or hurt Harper, especially if her treatment isn't a success.
Can Breeze get used to the idea of being in Harper's world, with beautiful people and women ogling Harper 24/7? Will Breeze allow herself to love Harper the way he deserves? Has her treatment been a success?
Love friendship and loyalty are all very strong attributes within Breeze of Life. I adored Harper and his strong arms that hold Bree together. Harper is such a fabulous character with flaws, but a true gentleman towards Bree. Kirsty Dallas - I am now one of your biggest fans, you are amazing. I cannot wait to read Saving Ella, hopefully soon.

Wow breathtakingly beautiful bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 January 2014
I loved this book, the characters, the messages, the overwhelming need to fight this awful disease and live each day to the full. Cancer is a difficult subject to read about but it is reality of life and Kirsty has written about it so well, I did shed some tears but I finished this book with a feeling g of such hope and positivity. I would recommend everyone to read this book.

Brillant storyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 April 2014
This was a fantastic wee book I came across by accident. I'm so glad I did. The storyline was beautiful and so hope inspiring and the two leads where superb. Just enough heat balanced with romance and a road trip round Australia. Definitely reccommended
