Series: Ten Tiny Breaths
Publisher: Atria

BLURB from Inkslinger PR
Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling her parents' tragic death and Kacey's self-destructive phase with strength and maturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. “Make me proud,” he had said. She promised she would...and she’s done her best over the past seven years with every choice, with every word, with every action.

Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy that she’s going to someday marry. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant ass who makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’t want in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?

As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows.

I really like most of the cover, the fonts and placement of the title, and author name. I don't usually like other information on a cover about other books but as this is in the same series, I think that in this instance the "Author of Ten tiny Breaths" does fit well and has a valid reason to be there. Again Grrr I don't like the top let addition of what author Courtney Cole thinks of the book, that statement is good and yes something to be proud of and put on your book, but it doesn't sell a book to me. I would have preferred that information to be either on an inside cover or a back cover. One last thing that I really don't like is the "a novel" why is it floating about on the cover, I think we know its a novel and I find it surplus to requirements. Now to what I like about the cover, the woman walking away, immediately makes you want to turn her round and find out who she is. The cover gives a light feel that to me fits well with a contemporary theme. I love the falling leaves on the cover. The colours of the cover are attractive and yes I would pick up this book to learn more about it.
Then the blurb confirms that this is a light contemporary romantic type of read. After reading the blurb would I want to read the book? Yes I probably would and as I  have Bk#1 I definitely intend to try this series of books.
