Whisper to Me (Between Breaths, #3) by Christina Lee

A hot and consuming New Adult romance about a wayward musician and the one girl who keeps him grounded…

At college, Rachel has a reputation for being a sarcastic flirt with a thing for star athletes. No one at school knows that she’d had her heart ripped to shreds by her high school sweetheart, who’d driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle, and then abandoned her. No one knows the real Rachel Mattson—except one person…

Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth—especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that fateful night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is back, groveling for her forgiveness.

Shaken by her ex’s return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Kai is willing to hide his feelings for her, just to have Rachel touch him again. After all, this is only a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But maybe it had been more all along.
My Thoughts:

5 stars - The guys Christina Lee comes up with just leave me a puddle of goo - sigh

I read Before You Break and Whisper To Me back-to-back and I learned something about Christian Lee.  Her guys are incredibly sensual.  They love to touch, to lick and to kiss.  They love to bring pleasure to those they care about.  They are so sexy and I was a puddle of goo reading about them.

Kai.  Gorgeous and sexy Kai.  He fell for Rachel when he spend so much time with her during her recovery.  He whispered to her but she doesn't remember that.  She thinks he's still a player and that he could never feel that way about her.  But he does.  He's just too afraid of losing her to tell her.  So the games begin.  The sexy, yummy games.  It's all cool and their just friends, sure...right.  They are so much more.  If only they could figure out how to tell each other.  And let me just say that that was the stress of this book.

Yes, I was stressed.  Stressed that they wouldn't risk telling the other.  Stressed that they would try to just be friends.  Stressed that what everyone else could see clearly, they wouldn't figure out.  And you know what, it takes a talented storyteller to do that to me.

I was very impressed with Christina Lee's ability to have me glued to the page.  I read it almost straight through, never wanting to put it down.  All I could think about was how they would steal time together again or who might slip and reveal their true feeling to the other.  Then I was guessing if one of them would decide to risk it.  I thought so much about these characters.  I loved every minute of this book.

It was nice seeing the other couples from the first two books.  I enjoyed the update on them.  I'm hoping to get some of that in book four with Kai and Rach because I wanted more at the end.  I wanted to just watch them hold each other, kissing and touching.

That's something that Christina Lee is so good at - the kissing, touching and licking.  So hot and so much fun to read.

Love the sexy reads with a yummy, dirty talking guy?  Then this one is for you.  No need to read the first two, though I loved them so much too.
