They say your destiny is carved in stone. But some destinies are meant to be broken.

The only curse Jesse Lachlin believes in is his grandmother’s will: in order to inherit his family farm he must win the approval of his childhood best friend, the girl he froze out his freshman year.

A fortuneteller tells Scarlett she's psychic, but what is real is Scarlett’s father’s controlling attitude and the dark secrets at home. She may be able to escape, but only if she can rely on the one boy who broke her heart.

Each midnight meeting pushes Jesse and Scarlett to confront their secrets and their feelings, but as love blooms, the curse rears its ugly head…


*Ten quotes from Only a Breath Apart*
“There are two times that I can breathe in deeply without wincing in pain, and being with you is one of them.” ~ Jesse

“Why would I want to be anyone else when I get to be the guy who holds you?” ~ Jesse

“I will always risk everything to save her.” ~ Jesse

- “Jesse is still rebellious, unconventional and lost.” ~ Scarlett

“Somewhere deep inside you have to know I’d never let you fall.” ~ Jesse

“Jesse possesses grace, a quietness and a sense of solid strength. It’s not new. It’s the same sense of peace Jesse has always had when he walks his land. It’s a peace I’ve envied my entire life.” ~ Scarlett

“We’ve touched, several times, but each time we do, I feel as if I’m slowly being led into a fire I’m not sure I want to leave. That’s a problem with fires—they have the ability to consume.” ~ Scarlett

“I don’t think any of us mean to be messed up, but messed up happens regardless.” ~ Jesse

“Where exactly are we going?” I ask.
“Same place as always,” Jesse says.
I’m dumbfounded as he walks toward his land. “And where is that?”
“Second star on the right then straight on till morning.”

“I haven’t been Tink to his Peter Pan for a long time. But watching Jesse head off to the land the two of us conquered in battles that belonged in our heads creates a sense of nostalgia I can’t ignore. I start for the land that calls to Jesse, the land that used to call to me. It’s definitely time for an adventure.” ~ Scarlett
