Lea Lamb and Austin Wolf were young when they fell in love. They never imagined the future could hold anything other than together - forever.
When Lea's father dies in a tragic fishing accident, she's crushed under the weight of her grief and catches a glimpse of another type of future, one she knows she's not strong enough to face.
Austin is angry. For the past 15 years, he's believed the woman he loved with every ounce of his soul left him without so much as a backward glance. When Lea unexpectedly returns to their hometown, all the years of heartache inside Austin bubbles to the surface and presents itself as blinding rage.
Faced with the truth about the past, a newly discovered secret, these former lovers will learn that if they want to have any chance at the future they gave up on all those years ago, they will have to rescue one another from drowning in pain so debilitating it will leave them both fighting to breathe.

The story is choppy
I should have counted how many times "fighting to breathe" was written as it's noticeably used a lot. We get it. It's the title. Returned this one as I was just so disappointed considering how much I enjoyed the Until series by the author.
"Loved this story!"
The story in this audiobook was about a young couple, planning to get married as soon as they graduate high school, whose lives change when a tragedy takes her father. Terrified of losing her boyfriend to the sea like her father, Leah takes off leaving her hometown behind. Fifteen years later she is forced to return to the Alaskan fishing village she grew up in when her mother is dying of cancer. Running into the only man she has ever really loved is painful for both of them and finding their way back is the story. Very well written, sexy hot scenes and superb narration by two of the best narrators, Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden make this book a real treat to listen to!
This second standalone in Aurora Rose Reynolds's Shooting Stars series was FULL of emotion and heartache! I loved every minute of it! This book made my heart ache and had my insides twisted into knots! I loved this second chance journey that Austin and Lea had to take to forgive their past actions and learn to trust again! Maxine Mitchel and Joe Arden are one of my favourite audio combos, and their narration in this audiobook was amazing! ! 5 little lamb stars!!
"Oh sweet angst"
My favorite part of this book is that although it was angsty and emotional, it wasn't over top with a ton of back and forth like a lot of books I have read.
This book is full of heart warming sweetness and heart breaking life events. Add in an HEA and a hero that is completely swoon worthy and I am completely in love with this book.
Joe and Maxine were perfection. They always are.
