Breath(e) by Ruth Madison

Dev Rating: ****

A sequel to Madison's first book (W)hole, Breath(e) delves into Elizabeth's experience exploring her devo-sexuality in college.  After breaking up with her paraplegic boyfriend Stewart, Elizabeth attempts several other relationships with disabled men, most with disastrous consequences.

All I can say is that Ruth Madison "gets it."  Elizabeth's struggles are all too familiar for any devotee who has struggled to connect with a disabled partner.  Her experiences and emotions feel incredibly real, from her painful confession to her parents to being shunned by her colleagues.  You will find yourself rooting for Elizabeth to get her happy ending (both literally and figuratively). 

Much like (W)hole, this book is a must-read for any devotee.  Buy it from Amazon and I promise you'll finish it in one weekend!
