**Blog Tour** Breathless by Rachel Brookes




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.



I took a chance and glanced up at her though heavy eyes. My regrets when it came to
Sav were all of my doing. As I looked at my girlfriend standing opposite me, the shards
of afternoon sun beamed through the large windows, allowing the blond of Savannah’s
hair to flicker in the sunlight and the shimmer of her makeup to glow. Even as she looked
at me like she could kill me, she still had absolutely no idea how sexy she looked. With
eyes burning into each other, our gaze spoke a thousand words. I licked my lips desperately as she lifted her hand and moved it to the back of her skirt. Her eyes drove harder into mine
as she pulled her bottom lip between her teeth in the way only she knew fucked with
my head—the one thing she knew I couldn’t handle. Light bulbs went off in my head.
She was playing me. Savannah didn’t hesitate; she continued her torture. I swallowed
hard, frantically trying to control the thoughts running wildly through my mind as I heard
the slow, agonizing sound of her zipper undoing float through the air. Pure ecstasy
swarmed to my dick as she wiggled out of her skirt, seductively swaying her hips side to
side. The skirt fell to a pile at her feet and she stood before me wearing nothing but red
boy-leg lace panties and a crisp white button-down shirt that sat so close to her body it
was like an extra layer of skin. She stood with a look of ownership on her face. She was
the master and I was her pussy- whipped slave boy. She took a step toward me, leaving
the skirt on the floor behind her but still staying an arm’s length away from me.

“I don’t understand you, Tate,” she whispered in a voice laced with intention.

“Well you are just as frustrating.” Tate Junior strained hard against my pants, begging
for his freedom.

She looked at me with eyes that could set my heart on fire but then rip it to shreds, and
I was completely and utterly under her spell. Her fingertips lingered on the buttons of her
shirt, teasing me, drawing me further into complete ecstasy. If I didn’t get my release
soon I’d be exploding in my pants. Her eyes didn’t falter from mine as her fingers slipped
into her shirt and unfastened one button at a time at an excruciatingly slow rate. With
each open of a button, she allowed me a glimpse of her perfect tits. She opened her shirt
and pulled it over her shoulders, revealing a matching red lace bra. Fuck it! My eyes ran
the length of her body, drinking her in, and finally my eyes drifted to her stomach. It was
rounding so perfectly, and I smiled at the sight of her. She was torturing me. She knew
exactly what she was doing—dealing out my punishment for being an asshole.

“Savannah, I am going to fuck you like you’ve never been fucked before.”

My voice was scratchy and full of need. Her eyes dropped and she took in my rock-hard
erection that was on full display.

“You aren’t touching me, Tate.” she warned, hands on hips and shooting daggers at me,
her voice spitting anger-filled venom. I was beyond turned on. “You storm into my life
 like a bull at a gate, you give me the best sex of my life, and you give me a baby but S
TILL you don’t trust me.” I couldn’t control my eyes from running the length of her body
yet again. Her body was the best freaking aphrodisiac I needed.

“I trust you, Sav. I don’t trust anyone else. I am pretty sure we have had this discussion

She ran her fingers through her long blond hair and sighed in frustration. “Seriously,
what do I have to do?”

 “You don’t have to do anything.”

 Sav rolled her eyes at me. “What? Do you need me to scream it at the top of my lungs?
Do you need me to get a tattoo across my forehead that says ‘I’m Tate’s girl’? Seriously,

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
"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.
In my opinion Just Breathe & Breathless are one of the series of 2013 and deserve
far more recognition than they are getting.

Just Breathe (Breathe #1) by Rachel Brookes

Interview with Rachel:

1. Just Breathe as you know is a favourite book of mine & I want to know what inspired you to write it?
Sav was the first character that came to me. She was absolutely shattered but so strong. I wanted to write a book that showed that even when life gives your heartache that you can move forward if you give life a chance. Your life is yours and yours only to live. Tate arrived soon after Sav and he started as this strong, alpha guy but then his layers peeled back and he was as broken as Sav. I wanted to show that through the storm you can get the sun. There is a few things in Just Breathe that are very personal to me so in a way it was therapeutic to write.
2. Do you know a Tate Connors? And where can I find him?
Oh my god, if I knew a Tate Connors I would not be sitting at my laptop! I wish I knew Tate Connors. There are definitely aspects of his personality and physical attributes that are influenced by certain people that I know but if I knew a Tate Connors id be snapping him up for myself.
3. What books have most influenced your life?
Any book that took a risk. Those are the books that influence me most. I love books that have a meaning behind them, a secret reason for being written. If I can finish a book and feel like it’s made an impact on my life then that means it will stick with me for a long time. Those are the books that influence me.
4. What book are you reading now?
I have just started reading Working It by Kendall Ryan. Absolutely loving it. It is super hot, super fun and Ben is very very swoon worthy.
5.Who is your favorite author and why?
Abbi Glines would have to be my most influential author. I admire the intensity of her work and her ability to still tell the story without it getting lost. Her books are the ones that I am still thinking of weeks after I have finished.
6. How much time do you spend writing?
A lot! I work full time in my other job so I find myself coming home and jumping on my laptop and working into the early hours of the morning. If I am working to a deadline every spare minute of my life is dedicated to writing. There are times when I forget the last time I cleaned my apartment but it’s worth it. I love writing and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
8. Do you have a message for your readers & supporters?
Thank you from every inch of who I am. You are allowing an Aussie to live out her dream and I cannot thank you enough! It makes my heart swell and I promise to continue to write about hot guys and sassy girls.
9. Who is your current/favorite book boyfriend?
I swear every week I have a new book boyfriend. But two ALWAYS stay around in my top five. Woods Kerrington and Max Stella. Those two just make me hard core swoon. Now I say I have a top 5 but I swear it’s a top 100.
10. I know you listen to music while you’re writing?
What is Tate & Sav’s song? Only One by Yellowcard, this was the song that I listened to the most when I was writing Just Breathe. The lyrics are definitely them.
11. What can weexpectto see from you in the future?
Well I have Breathless releasing on November 26th and the final book in Tate and Sav’s story ‘Breathe Again’ will be released early 2014, that is the book I am currently working on. I have another set of books and characters that are taking up my mind so I am super excited about that.
12. If you could take one book with you on vacation, what would it be and why?
This is a hard question! If I had to choose just one I would probably say Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren because 1. It’s got my book boyfriend Max Stella in it, features Chloe Mills who is one of my fave female leads, 3. it has Bennett Ryan who is smoking hot, 4. Sarah Dillon is a character id want to be friends with and the story is super hot and would make my vacation very fun, all I’d need to find would be my ownMax Stella.13. Tell us one unique fact about yourself. I can touch my nose with mytongue... gross but true.


Rachel Brookes is from a coastal town on the east coast of Australia where beaches, kangaroos and surfers roam free. She writes angsty love stories with a pinch of craziness, a dash of drama, a cup of romance and a spoonful of sexiness… oh and the main ingredient hot guys.
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, due to be released in July 2013, her dream of releasing a book will become reality. With another three books already taking up her mind, she cannot wait to start this crazy ride.
