Breathe (Sea Breeze) by Abbi Glines

Sadie White lives an unusual life for a 17 year old girl.  Having just moved to the small town of Sea Breeze with her 7 month pregnant mother, Sadie is forced to take over her mother's job so her Mom can rest.  Sadie soons finds out that she works in the summer getaway of the teen rocker Jax Stone.  But Sadie needs her job to keep a roof over her head and food in the kitchen.  She doesn't have time for swooning over Jax Stone.  Sadie never had time to swoon over stars as she has always been forced to mother her own mother.  She has had to grow up too fast and too soon.  At first, she isn't sure they will allow her to stay in her Mom's place but soon her hard work, dedication, and sweet attitude make her part of a close knit work family.  She soon becomes a person with people who care about her for the first time in her life.
Jax is fascinated with the beautiful etheral girl who seems to not care who he is and is there to do a good job.  He is drawn to Sadie and soon befriends her.  Sadie doesn't want to fall in love with him because she knows they come from opposing worlds.  Marcus her best friend tries to warn her and save her from heartache but knows it is too late.  Marcus is so sweet and damn near perfect too.  I loved him and I am so glad he is getting his own book and romance. 
At times, Jax talks like a cheesy poetic romance hero.  But so help me I love him anyway.  He is every woman's fantasy so who cares if he seems to good to be true.  We all secretly want one just like him.  Sadie's Mom Jessica may just be the most selfish excuse for a Mom that I have ever seen.  I alternately wanted to slap her and yell at her.  The ending was so good and made the whole book worth it.  I loved this book from beginning to end and it will definitely be on my keeper shelf.
