Simply Breathtaking

WOW! I'm still trying to catch my breath. AWESOME read! Maureen Smith has yet to disappoint me, but this was far better than I could have ever imagined. Talk about catching you from the first page and keeping you turning the pages 'til the very end. The storyline was very well developed and kept you guessing until the very end. All the characters played a memorable roles within the novel, keeping you wondering who could have done it. The romance and heated attraction between G

Okay, it's official - nobody can do romantic suspense like Maureen Smith! This was good, and I mean really good, from start to finish. Now, I had already read No One But You, which is the follow-up to this book, so I knew who the killer was; but please believe me when I tell you that I was still captivated by this story. She created so much suspicion around several characters that I was giving them the serious side-eye - and I already knew who the killer was! She is just that good, y'all! Since ...more
This read really kept me on the edge of my seat the entire way through. The suspense level was at an all time high, and I really didn't expect the outcome at all, so that was truly a pleasant surprise...well done Maureen Smith! Imani and Garrison were both very well rounded characters. Their background stories were developed so good, that we knew exactly who they were and where they came from, there was nothing questionable about them. The chemistry between them was on point, but was not over ...more

In the two occurrences of the word "dumpster", neither of which is beginning a sentence, the "d" in dumpster is capitalized. I found it slightly humorous that such a word would be honored in this manner.

There were obvious inconsistencies in this novel that no other review here has yet mentioned. First the book stated that Imani inherited her mother's old Volvo. Then, it mentioned a note on the windshield of her truck. I assumed, being that Imani inherited her vehicle, that the mother had passed

An avid reader of romance with a law enforcement involvement; whether ATF, CIA, DEA, FBI, HSI, or military it does not matter - just love them.

Can we say sinister twist of whom the perpetrator is. Who'd thunk it. This book had all points covered - deception, family dynamics, sexy alpha male hero, and a strong woman gets her man.

This book was a suspense from the start. When the main charaters meet the romanitic currents were immediate. Neither romance or suspense was lacking, nor did either to ba

Ok Ms. Maureen Smith,
it is official you have one dark and twisted mind. OMG, I think I
needed to be rushed to the emergency room on several occasions since I
stopped breathing once or twice. With Every Breath, was absolutely,
positively out of this world. Oh and Garrison, he definitely joins the
list. Now in what order... Caleb, Michael, Garrison. Or is it Garrison,
Caleb, Michael. Or is it Michael, Caleb, Garrison. Hmmm, I think I
will dream about these three before making a decision. Oh and

This was a long book. I did not figure out the "whodunit." I'm glad that it wasn't someone in law enforcement like two of her other books. There was one red herring that did not make any sense to me . . . but hey. Maybe we'll learn more in the follow up to this story.

I enjoyed Imani and Garrison getting to know each other. Having discovered Maureen Smith not too long ago, I wish all her heroines didn't have "exotically slanted eyes."

The scene at the bridal shop was the highlight of the book. Go

Initially, I cursed the author for her detailed writing style and the drawn out cat and mouse play but H-O-N-E-Y!!! Maureen Smith had me wanting to marry Garrison Wade! The brewing chemistry shared between Garrison and Imani makes for some SUPER SEXY love scenes. And with a nicely developed supporting cast... "With Every Breath" is a well written read full of suspense that finishes at a nail biting high!
EyeCU Reading Approved!

It started slow but somehow kept me involved. It was just like watch a law and order episode. I will be reading the others ones that follow.

I have enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember. My earliest memory of knowing I had a “literary gift” was as a third grader, when I wrote and illustrated a story about a child who stumbled upon a bird’s nest and decided to nurture the orphaned chickadee until its mother returned. I can’t recall whether the story had a happy ending or not, but my teacher, Mrs. Bennett, w
