One look from Savannah Rae was all it took for Tate Connors to fall.
From the first moment he laid eyes on her, his world was irrevocably shaken. He’s willing to accept that his life will never be the same again, but when she has to leave for New York the distance becomes more than either of them expected.
Tate is left alone with not only an empty bed but also a thousand thoughts running through his head. Insecurities soar as he wonders if he could ever really be the kind of man Savannah deserves.
When the demons of his past continue to threaten the future he so desperately craves, Tate knows he has to make the ultimate choice. Risk destroying his relationship and his family with one life changing decision, or gamble on fate and hope the past stays exactly that…the past.
Just Breathe (Breathe #1) by Rachel Brookes
Rachel sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes forgets to sleep and sometimes can’t remember the last time she cleaned her apartment but that’s because she is in a long term relationship with her laptop and is constantly writing.
When she does step away from her laptop she can be found taking too many photos, making scrumptious cocktails, laughing at Adam Sandler movies and spending her time with her amazing family and friends.
With her first novel, Just Breathe, was released in July 2013, her dream of releasing a book became reality. With another three books already taking up her mind, she cannot wait to start this crazy ride.
Just Breathe was one of my favourite reads this year, Savannah is the sassy mouthed Aussie beauty who gave Tate a run for his money from the very first time they set eyes on each other. So when Rachel told me she was writing a Novella from Tate’s POV I wanted to hug her little Aussie ass.
I’m so lucky to be friends with Rachel and she has shared Tate & Sav’s journey with me. Breathless lived up to my expectations and beyond.
Warning do not read Breathless in public you will be left ever so slightly hot and bothered or a blubbering wreck in a very public place. There was a certain scene that was emailed to me at work and I made the mistake of reading it discreetly at my desk, big mistake I spent the rest of my working day craving a little action myself.
"Don't Jesus fucking Christ me Tate. You fly to New York, you stroll into my office in that suit you know i'm a sucker for, you wait for me then kiss me to the point of almost giving me a fucking orgasm and then you accuse me of god only knows with Blake. You frustrate me. Why do you have to be such an arsehole" Savannah
“Savannah Maree Rae, don’t flirt with me when I can’t have you”. I groaned into the phone. She wasn’t even here and I was thinking about burying myself in her. This was going to be a long month. My hand and I were going to get very well acquainted . “You are going to be the death of me”, I laughed. “I love you! I will see you soon.” Tate
Tate’s insecurities of his relationship with Sav, stem from his own relationships of the past that still haunt him and unfortunately come back to haunt him further throughout Breathless. Sav and Tate are made for each other but there are people around them that want to try and ruin what they have, what happened was cruel and left us wondering how they could move forward together.
We will have to wait for Breathe Again to get those answers.
