Tammy's Review - 5 Bare Naked Stars
I absolutely LOVED Rescue Breathing!! It was full of love, lust, heartbreak, and second chances.
Owen – damn he was one HOT alpha / fireman. I couldn’t get enough of him.
Olivia – Fun, Flirty, and Sexy Psychologist
They meet unexpectedly in an airport bar before they both fly to Seattle. As fates turns out they are seated next to each other. They both live in NYC and flying to Seattle to see friends. Both their hotels are next to each other. Fate was on their side. They connected on the flight and while in Seattle
“I've been fed up, bored of playing the game. Uninspired with the constant rotation of women. Tired of not having a connection with anyone. It's amazing how a mere twenty-four hours can help bring into focus what i truly want. And what I really want is Olivia.”
I LOVED Pete’s bar and D Bags were mentioned.. My all-time favorite book band!!
Olivia arrives back in NYC and doesn’t hear from Owen. Then he finally decides he wants to see if things can work. He invites her to coffee. They were inseparable after that.
“You gotta take big risks in order to get big rewards.”
They both have been hurt by their pasts and afraid to love again. They guard their hearts and Olivia has an issue of running away when things get rough.
On many occasions they both have their pasts thrown in their faces and cause problems for them. Can they get move past their exes and make things work or go their separate ways?
No spoilers here I loved the Epilogue and the Dual Points of View. It really made the book.
