Welcome to my stop on the FFBC Blog Tour for Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt! I have some info about the book, fun with gifs (since we all know I adore a gif, this seems exceptionally appropriate!), and of course, an amazing giveaway!
Hold Me Like a Breath (Once Upon a Crime Family #1)
Penelope Landlow has grown up with the knowledge that almost anything can be bought or sold—including body parts. She’s the daughter of one of the three crime families that control the black market for organ transplants.Penelope’s surrounded by all the suffocating privilege and protection her family can provide, but they can’t protect her from the autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise so easily.And in her family’s line of work no one can be safe forever.
All Penelope has ever wanted is freedom and independence. But when she’s caught in the crossfire as rival families scramble for prominence, she learns that her wishes come with casualties, that betrayal hurts worse than bruises, that love is a risk worth taking . . . and maybe she’s not as fragile as everyone thinks.
