Even with all of the mixed reviews and me not liking the 1st book, I still wanted to give this book a chance. This certainly wasn't the worst book but it wasn't one of my favorites. I struggled during some of the parts to refrain from fast forwarding because some parts would drone on and on uneccesarily. Other parts were really good and interesting. It was just a constant 'peak and valley' of a book that struggled to maintain my attention as I struggled to get through it so that I could move on to the next book in my list.
Even Sebastian Yorks' narration couldn't save this book and that's saying alot, he makes even some of the worst books better just by the sound of his voice.
Overall this isn't a terrible book by any means and if you liked the 1st book or just want to give this book a chance, absolutely take the plunge. However if you are on the fence like I was, don't waste your money or a credit on this one.

It felt like forever for this book to come out on audio after the ending of book 1. I loved that this book picks right up where book 1 left off and we didn't have to go through all the backstory details like you usually do with series books. Baz & Shae's story wraps up perfectly. Loved everything about this book!
The narration was perfect as always with these two!

Where does Drowning to Breathe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Is way up there with my top reads/audios. Sebastian York and Andi Arndt outdid themselves in this story, there were so many emotional parts but not once they faltered.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved this story. This is the concluding part to A Stone in the Sea which tells the story of Sebastian Stone, lead singer of Rock band Sunder and Southern belle, Shea Bentley.
In the first book we were taken on a journey through their relationship and the trials and tribulations of making it work. Sebastian has had a rough time growing up, adapting becoming a super star, loosing family and friends and never in his wildest dreams expected to meet someone who could truly SEE HIM for the beautiful, strong and loving man he was. At the end of the first book we were torn seeing them being ripped from someone who they both love by a mutual enemy just when they were ready to embark on their happily ever after, the realisation of not knowing much about each other and secrets coming to the surface threatens to tear them apart.
This book starts just were the first book ended and we are once again submerged on a passionate tale of love, loss, forgiveness and fighting for happiness.
The passion between them ignites the pages of this book, love between Shea and Sebastian has no parallel and together they must once again face the horror of loosing everything which is so close to their reach. The need to protect each other transcends all boundaries and Sebastian will stop at nothing until he sees his family free of all danger.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
LOVED the whole book but if I was to pick one scene or one chapter will be VEGAS! It was almost an hour long chapter but it had so much joy and every moment spent together between the leads was an added bonus to witness.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
GOD so many, Shea's daughter and her need for a family, the natural and immediate love love she has for Sebastian. Sebastian suffering with the horrific events which involved the loss of his best friend, and ultimately seeing his brother moving on.
Any additional comments?
Once again Amy has left me speechless with her beautiful and masterful writing. Her words are so full of soul and emotion. This story was pure perfection and I am sadden to have finished it but ready to embark in a new journey with a new boy from Sunder. The Bleeding Stars series have now been added to my favourite reads of all time and I will cherish them in my heart forever.

Wow another great instalment of this series, loved the storyline and the characters. Looking forward to the next book. Would highly recommend this author
Oh my go please please please stop the repeating yourself three times at times in this story it seemed like this was used just because you wanted to mess with the readers minds. I found myself rolling my eyes toward chapter 13 and looking for other forms of entertainment.
