There's nothing like the first time . . .

In Carnal, Colorado, Faye Goodknight is the town's quiet, shy librarian. She may also be Carnal's last remaining virgin. For years, Faye has had a crush on Chace Keaton, but the gorgeous cop has always been unattainable. She's resigned to live contentedly with only her books for company-until Faye suddenly meets Chace alone in the

Breathe photo 11f21323-d3f0-4a55-9e75-4ae4f4770b26_zpsff8002f9.jpg

This was such a beautiful book! Laughter, tears, smiling from ear to ear, this book just had it all!

Faye Goodnight is Carnal’s librarian. She is twenty nine and always has her head in a book. Faye reads about love, but has yet to experience it. She doesn’t really put herself out there. The reason? She’s holding out for a hero. Chace Keaton is that hero to Faye. The man she has been crushing on for 13 years is now single. Faye is everything I love about a good heroine

4 1/2 to 5 stars

My goodness, what an emotional book Breathe turned out to be. I haven't read a book by Kristen Ashley that had me in tears as much as this book did. Mostly, that was due to the heartbreaking and deeply moving side story of a young boy named Malachi. The story of Malachi was captivating, intriguing, and heartbreaking while uplifting. I loved the way his story shed additional light on Chace's and Faye's inner characters. The romance that develo

If they ever make a Breathe movie, I hope they get Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone to play the two leads. I couldn't help but picture them as Chace and Faye.

If there is one major talent that Kristen Ashley has, it is writing a great asshole lead character. She is famous for her 'alphas', and I'm famous for hating alpha-assholes. Don't get me wrong, I love a good sweet and kind alpha. Maybe we just have different ideas on what an alpha should be like. I think of a character who is strong, self-assured, a leader, and a protector. But, so often I read books where the guy is abusive - physically, emotionally, and sexually - and they get away with it bec ...more

Kristen Ashley has done it again. Each time I've finished one of her books, I think I've found my new favorite and that the rest of them won't be able to live up to the ones I've read already; and (almost) each time I'm proven wrong. Breathe was different from most of her other books in the sense that the heroine was much different from most other KA heroines, and that's exactly why I loved this book so much. Other than that, the story consisted of the typical KA eleme

Overall Opinion: This was a lot better than I thought it'd be! I had written it off before, because lots of readers didn't like the fact that Chace slept around while Faye was crushing on him. While I understand where they're coming from, it really didn't bother me. I still felt like Faye was a strong character, and she never crossed that line into doormat status for me (which is what I was really worried about). To clarify -- we don't experience any this sleeping around happening, but i

I loved Faye! She was a cute and funny librarian, science fiction aficionado, with a little bit of a temper to match her red hair. I cracked up every time she used that backbone and said "frak", even if she felt a little guilty saying it, like it was an actual curse word. Lol!

Another sterling contemporary romance from Kristen Ashley – we’re back in Carnal for the story of Chace and Faye. This is one of my favourite plot lines – the tough, protective alpha hero with the sweet and really rather geeky heroine.

There’s a heartbreaking tale at the centre of this story about a homeless child, Malachi, living rough on the streets of Carnal and his plight is the driving force that brings Chace and Faye together. Malachi’s story will tug at your heart strings and helping him a

RATING: 5 "Baby, breathe." Hearts!! :D <3

Breathe is another fantastic addition to this series. KA never fails to amaze me with her—albeit long as heck—stories, the admirable characters or the soulful, irrevocably beautiful love between them. Chase and Faye’s story was all that and more. Loved every word of this, and I really loved all the previous characters making an appearance. I simply adore KA and can’t wait to read the next one in the series!

I loved this book. Probably my favorite (at least the characters were my favorites) of all the KA books I've read so far.

Honestly, did not know what to make of Chace in Lady Luck.

And, even at the start of Breathe, I was unsure.

However, it became obvious, this was a man, who held a lot of guilt over what had gone down.

All he had ever wanted, had been snatched away from him, with the help of his own father, a man he had moved away from and defied so he could go his own way and have the life he wanted. Then this is taken from him. He had had a plan, an idea of how he wanted hi

I have no words to express the kind of magic that KA poured into this book. A wonderful love story, with so many memorable, heart-tugging, beautiful dialogs that it would take pages to write the quotes.

An unforgettable hero (now one of my faves), the sweetest heroine, the most touching story about a broken kid, great secondary characters, it has it all. This is another KA keeper.

I'll let you in on a secret, honey. The knight who has serious chinks in his armor but never falls is the true hero. That means he's won battles and doesn't waste time polishing his armor so he can look good while he rides in parades that are tributes to his glory. He just drags himself back on his steed and keeps right on battling. And if he's the right kind of knight, he never rides alone. The best heroes inspire loyalty. The best heroes keep fighting the good fight, tirelessly, quietly. The best heroes always have scars. If they didn't, the heroine would have nothing to do. It's her job to help the hero let all that stuff go in order that her man can be strong enough to fight on but when he's with her he's free to just 'breathe'. 186 likes
