Review – Breathe

Breathe; Rosewood Bay #2 (Series)
by Carly Phillips (Author)

This review is from: April 12, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

A standalone novel within the Rosewood series, Phoebe Ward had her life together after a troubled childhood upbringing. A child raised in foster care due to an absent father and a mother on drugs and when you add in a teenage pregnancy Phoebe would hardly be recognizable from a girl on paper to the successful woman she’s become eleven years later. Aside from living with the regret that she never found Jamie’s father, Jake-who stole her heart eleven years ago she was able to tell him he was a father, she wouldn’t take back becoming a mom for anything. Jamie is her world and she adores her son.

When Phoebe walks into a job site, her biggest one to date, she never imagined seeing the boy, now a man, standing before her. How does she begin to tell him he’s a father? Where does she even begin?

Jake Nichols was a troubled teen. spending time in foster homes and eventually prison, he eventually turned his life around. Working as a contractor gave him skills and a life he’s proud of. What he never imagined was that it would lead to the girl, now a beautiful woman, the only girl he’s ever really loved. Seeing it as a sign he jumps at the chance to win her back. He knows he’s made mistakes, but he’s willing to prove to her that they belong together.

Phoebe is skittish and filled with reservation. Jake is willing to break down those walls to earn back her trust. Whatever it takes to get back what they’ve lost. Fate wouldn’t be so cruel to have them find each other again and not give them the happy ending they both deserve.

Can they erase all the years of hurt and loss to get to the happily ever after they both dreamed of?

Breathe is sweet and real, yet also passionate and loving.  An easy read that was hard to put down. It is part of a series, but easily a standalone if you hadn’t read the first book. There will also be a third book in the series as well, so if you do enjoy a good read this is a good summer series to pick up and enjoy.

My coupling with Erdorin, Jareo, and Gyrvig has given me confidence. I am no longer afraid. I allow myself to be easy with the twins, who exude power and virility. Tonight I coyly asked who is the older, seeking to determine who will be next to take me. I got no direct answer. They turned the conversation to other things, and when I got up to clear away the table, I realized I was alone with the twins.

“Where have the others gone?” I looked to the door, embarrassed to have been so focused on Yrko and Tyri that I’d not even noticed.

“Perhaps they thought it time to leave us alone.” The light tone in Tyri’s voice is replaced by a different one. It’s serious. His deep voice sends a little shudder through my body. I turn from where I’m standing. My heart begins to pound.

“So tonight I’ll be with one of you?”

The twins rise from the table and walk over. When they reach me, Yrko puts a finger under my chin and tilts my head back so that I’m looking up at him and his brother.

“No, Thera. Tonight you’ll be with us both.”

“Both?” I struggle to get the word out.

Tyri nods. “Drakoryan twins are different. If I am cut, Yrko feels it. If he feels lust, my cock gets hard. If I am hungry, his stomach growls. When we shifted for the first time, it was together. And when it comes time to claim a mate…”

As unprepared as I was for this revelation, I am even less prepared for the touch of both men moving over my body. Yrko moves behind me; his hand span my waist and slide up to cup my breasts. Tyri, who is facing me, reaches down to cup and squeeze my buttocks.

My reaction shames me. I feel a trickle of arousal slip from the seam of my aching pussy. It seems so long ago that I was a widow certain she’d never lie with another man. Since then, I have been with three. And now I am about to be taken by two at once.

For centuries, the Drakoryan lords have taken sacrificial maidens. As a village widow, I thought myself safe from their attentions. I was wrong.

I am Thera the Healer, and I blame the Drakoryans for the death of my husband and father. They were killed before our dragon lord rulers resettled us in the Drakoryan Valley ahead of war with the ShadowFell.

Now they seek to recruit village men into their army to fight the enemy. But I seek to convince my people that the enemy is not some black dragon we have never seen, but the one who keeps us.

Now the Drakoryans are accusing me of sedition, and seek to neutralize my influence in a manner I will not accept. They seek to wed me to five Drakoryan lords tasked with keeping order in my village.

They won’t get what they want without a fight.

Katya
Everyone around me calls me a monster. I can’t say that I blame them, over the years I was turned into one, into my worst nightmare – something that I tried so hard not to become. What no one knows is what I had to go through, and I doubt that they ever will.
Sure, I married a monster and maybe he did turn me into what I am today.
But sometimes I wonder….who really turned me into this foul being? My mother? Or was it my husband?
Regardless, it doesn’t matter. I am what I am, and everyone hates me for it, even my own brother and sister.
Here I am, thrown to the side of the road like a piece of trash – hurt by the only person that I thought cared – Sergei. It turns out that he never did, or maybe he only cared when it benefited him.
Now I’m trying to mend the only relationships that I can salvage, while trying to protect my family from the war that is coming. Being a Petrov was never easy, and it never will be.
When I travelled across the globe to Gainesville, Tennessee I expected to mend a relationship with Dmitri and Ksenia. Instead, I began a relationship with someone else, someone who is just as much of a monster as me. Only, no one else knows that.
He’s opening up to me in ways that my husband never did and while our relationship grows I only hope that I can keep everyone I love safe from the fight that is waiting on our doorstep.
After all, Petrov’s survive – no matter what.
We always survive.
