Breathe by Kristen Ashley ~ Review

There's nothing like the first time . . .

In Carnal, Colorado, Faye Goodknight is the town's quiet, shy librarian. She may also be Carnal's last remaining virgin. For years, Faye has had a crush on Chace Keaton, but the gorgeous cop has always been unattainable. She's resigned to live contentedly with only her books for company-until Faye suddenly meets Chace alone in the woods...

Chace doesn't think he's the good guy everyone believes him to be. He's made a lot of choices he regrets, including denying his feelings for Faye. Through his choices, he's come to believe the pretty librarian is too good for him, but after their time in the woods, Chace realizes that she may be his last chance for redemption. Soon, their long simmering desires grow to a burning passion. Yet always casting a shadow over their happiness is Chace's dark past...

I am reading this series out of order.  I read book 3 first and had planned on going back to book 1 next but got sucked into the first chapter Breathe that was at the end of book 3.  So on to book 4 I went.

So I really loved Ty in Lady Luck.  He's this ruff guy that all alpha male.  But I gotta say, I love Chace more.  Oh so much more.  He doesn't see himself as good enough for Faye.  He's wanted her as his for a very long time but he was thrown into a different path by circumstances beyond his control.  And truthfully, the guy wasn't to blame but of course he blames himself.  So he resists the pretty librarian.   And he takes the weight of the world upon himself.  He has a huge heart and works so hard to help others.  I just love him.  And the boy is sexy HOT.  He totally won my heart.

As for Faye?  How can I not love this girl?  She's a reader.  She lives in her books and survives that way.  Sounds like me.  She runs the local library.  She's harbored a crush on Chace for YEARS.  She doesn't think that he even knows she exists.  Oh he knows alright.  But there is so much more to her.  She has the biggest heart.  She fights for those she cares about.  I adore her.

Their story is addictive.  I couldn't put it down.  I love how this author  resolves couples issues with time to have lots and lots of couple time.  These two together are so enjoyable to read.  I love that we see slices of their live and how they are as a couple.  And then there is the issue of a little boy and how he captures their heart.  It's a story that just sucks you in and keeps you stuck till the bitter end.  You just want to keep reading about these two.  Good thing it's a nice long book.

My co-blogger gave me this book as well as the first three in the series.  She's long been a fan of this author.  She's made me one too.  Off to read more in this series.  You should be too.
