BookWhisperer Rating:


In order to protect a father he does not respect, in Lady Luck, we learned that good cop Chace Keaton went bad, sacrificing his career and his future. But when the local police department's secrets are revealed and the wife he's forced to marry is murdered, Chace finds himself the town of Carnal's hero. Knowing how deep in the mud he was forced to sink, Chace feels he'll never get clean. The quiet, content future he envisioned of the love a good woman with whom he could build a family was now beyond his reach. The only thing he can do is find his wife's murderer.

But he isn't the only one looking.

While searching for new leads, he runs into Faye Goodknight, the town's quiet, shy, pretty librarian. Chace has long since had his eye on what could possibly be the town's last remaining virgin but he has also long since given up hope he could make her his. Faye is pure and clean and Chace refuses to dirty her with his sordid past.

Pure and clean Faye may be, but when the shy librarian is forced to go head to head with the man who she's had a crush on since he hit her hometown, Chace finds Faye is full of surprises. And he doesn't know what to do with her.

our thoughts

Kristen Ashley has this wonderful ability to write my kind of man and wonderful books. There is never a book where the leading man is just so-so, he is always a “I NEED him!” Chace was an absolute “I NEED him” kind of alpha male.

I would have to say that the reason why I loved the two characters Chace and Faye is because at first their interactions were very rough; they did not get along at all. This friction made all the little steps they took that brought them closer to a couple status made it more monumental. Plus the fact that they were such good people, even though they were just characters. Faye’s concern for Malachi and what she does for him just made my soul warm and toasty.

As for their relationship, I really liked how this was Faye’s first serious one and Chace was her (HOT) teacher. There was just something pure about their connection with each other and it really bonded them together so when their characters experience terrifying events, they have each other to lean on.

When I first opened Breathe on my Kindle I saw that it was almost 10,000 pages (roughly 550 regular book pages) and I thought that it was going to take me a while to read it to the finish. Not that because it would be a boring read but just because it was a longer book than normal and that I unfortunately have to work J However, I finished this within a day because it was read that just sucked me in.
