Losing my brother was my breaking point.
After years of disappointment and pain, never again was I letting someone penetrate my heart.
As long as I could still play my drums, I would tolerate the bullshit that came with being a member of the band Borrowed Faith.
What I didn’t see coming was a redheaded angel, her name true to her looks.
Apple was the epitome of forbidden fru

REALLY cool story!

I'll be honest; I wasn't sure what to make of this book at first. I've read LOTS of Ruby's books, and this one was written in a "voice" that seemed aimed at a "new adult" audience and wasn't what I was used to reading from her.

But then.

I got sucked in.

Hours. This was one of those books I spent hours upon hours sitting and reading because I HAD to know what happened next and how it ended.

Yes, this is a rock star romance, and yes this has paranormal elements and yes it has a hero

First let me say, I am not huge into Paranormal Romance at all. But knowing this was a Ruby Rowe book, I was excited to see how it would all play out. Ruby has not let me down since she started writing as Ruby Rowe, and this was no exception. I was blown away at how much I was pulled into the story of Tripp and Apple.

In Breathe into Me, the kick-off to what is going to be an amazing series, we follow the Rock Band Borrowed Faith on tour. Breathe into Me is Tripp Townsend’s book. Tripp is their

Ruby Rowe with another amazing book to add to her collection. This time with a slight paranormal plot. I have never been a reader of paranormal romance but this one captured me hook, line and sinker.
Tripp is the drummer for Borrowed Faith. Apple is an a journalist writing a story about Borrowed Faith. Dex is a rock god that Borrowed Faith is headlining for and Apple's father and boss. Dex doesn't want Apple to fall for a rock star like him. He wants better for his little girl. While Apple is tr

Rock Romance with a Twist

Well, this book was a surprise to me…a good surprise. It had a touch of paranormal added to it and I usually don’t do paranormal BUT this book was so good and made sense to me as how it was used that it did not strike me as the “normal” paranormal book.

Now, with that said let’s get onto the awesome part with everything rock star. Oh, yeah it gave me the bad boy rock stars and everything that entails; drinking, drugs, groupies, and discontentment within the band. Borrowed

This is the first book I've read by Ruby Rowe and I was not disappointed to find a new author for me! Tripp is the drummer for Borrowed Faith and Apple is the daughter of a rock legend they just so happen to be touring with. I like these characters a lot, especially Zain. They each have their own story to tell and their own demons they are fighting. Tripp has lost his brother, so he's hurting and lashes out at everyone. Apple is a very tender-hearted person, so I will say that at times, I wasn't ...more

I am a huge fan of Ruby Rowe and her books seem to be getting better and better! This is a new book in a new series that follows the members of a rock band. Breathe Into Me is the story of Tripp Townsend the drummer of Borrowed Faith and Apple is the daughter of Dex Kingley, also a rock star who does not want her daughter to fall for a musician. Apple is writing an article on the members of Borrowed Faith. Apple feels an instant connection to Tripp. Once she meets him she feels as if she was mea ...more

First I have to say that I loved loved this book so much! It was so much more than I expected and I need book two like ASAP! I never wanted Apple and Tripp's story to end. It was amazing and they had amazing chemistry between them when it finally released. Tripp tried so hard to stay away from Apple but it did not work out. Even when Apple's father threatened him to stay away that he did not want his baby girl with a rock star because they were not good enough for his baby girl and that was sayi ...more

This is my 1st read and review for this author and this is an amazing story, and this is the story of the rock band Borrowed Faith and the guys relationship with each other. Zain’s father’s band Fully Wired is headlining with Zane’s band being the supporting act. Apple is the adopted daughter of rock legend Dexter Kingsley and she will be interviewing the guys from the band Borrowed Faith for a magazine that her father is starting up. There is something special about Apple when she was in an acc ...more

With this book, our Ruby tried her hand at a little paranormal added to her normal steamy romance. I was skeptical, as I always am when one of my favorite authors decides to take off in a new direction. But I was blown away by this story. Ruby did a wonderful job with her first dive into the paranormal world. It wasn't over the top, which so many authors do on their first try, but just enough to pull you in and keep you on the edge and turning pages. ...more

An ultimately enjoyable story I felt could have used a little polish

I was brand new to this author, though a couple of her books are on my TBR, but rockstar is a favorite genre and I usually like troubled main characters so I thought this would a good book to start off with.

I have to say I’m a bit on the fence about this book. I liked the characters and loved the setup; Apple’s abilities surprised and intrigued as did the concept of a talented band whose members were struggling to get along. Wh

This book was not much different than what I'm used to reading from this author in the sense that she sucked me in from the moment I started reading. She might have put a little spin with a little paranormal into this book but nothing over the top or exaggerating. It was just perfect and very believable.

This book is about a band with their band members having issues and can't seem to get along. Tripp is the main culprit in this story since he's always broody and moody and never wants to interac

Breathe Into Me in a good read. There's a lot stuff going on in this story. It's not a light fluffy read and deals with some deep topics and some interesting topics. Apple is the daughter of a famous rock star, Dex. Dex has managed to keep her shelter and away from the public eye. Apple is sweet and nice. She's unique and has a special talent. I totally loved the aspect her special talent brings to the story. She's tagging along with Borrowed Faith to interview them for a story. The band members ...more

This first book on the band Borrowed Faith is an absolute winner! Trip is the drummer whose older brother started the group, but Nathan became addicted and succumbed to an overdose. For two years now Zain has been the guitar and lead for the group but really not accepted and is also using drugs. Into this group comes Apple, whose adoptive father and Zain's father are well known leaders of the band Fully Wired, both rich and famous. Apple has been protected by her father Dex, but he is letting th ...more

I love rockstar romance books, so when I read the blurb I couldn’t wait to read it. I really did enjoy this book. It’s not like any rockstar romance book I read. I love how she blindsided me with the plot. I love that Apple, Tripp and Zain had a POV. Apple is working for her dad new magazine so she there to interview a rock band call Borrowed Faith. I love Apple unique gift and that she tried to help everyone around her. She did cry a little to much but I did like that in the end she did stand u ...more

Ruby Rowe knows how to pack quite the emotional wallop when she writes her romance stories. Her newest book "Breathe Into Me" is the story of Tripp Townsend who is the drummer of Borrowed Faith and Apple , who is the daughter of Dex Kingley, also a rock star who doesn't want his daughter to fall for a musician.
Apple and Tripp will immediately catch your attention and take you on a wild ride full of emotions, twists, turns, passion, secrets and paranormal elements. What a deliciously dark and be

Such an extremely intense, palpable and explosive chemistry between the two main characters as they face unexpected trials and tribulations. Secrets run rampant as truths are revealed that will rock this baby to the core. Ruby nailed this bad boy and brought it roaring to life brilliantly with so much passion and imagi ...more

This book is so good. This is my first Ruby Rowe book and I absolutely loved it from beginning to end. I was drawn in by it being a Rock Romance and so glad that I went into it not knowing that it had a little bit of paranormal in it. I just don't do paranormal, but Ruby Rowe introduced me to this genre in a way that I didn't mind it at all. I loved it actually. Breathe Into Me sucked me in from the very beginning and made me love all of the band members. Tripp and Apple's story was such a page ...more

This story about Apple, Tripp and Zain was like no other I have read. Apple has a special gift that some may not believe but thats ok because the only one that matter is Tripp. Tripp has so much anger since he lost someone so close to him. He keeps his band mates at arms distance but when Apple is around she makes him feel. These two have a pull between them and as much as Tripp fights it, it doesnt go away. I am in love with this story.

Hello moody rockstars! This book sucks you in by wanting to get to know th band and thier issues. And as you do you fall in love with each one. With Apple's abilities even if you dont like supernatural reads you will love this read. All the characters are likeable and the who arent you want to know why. I definitely can not wait for Ruby to come out with more books to this series. Im hooked, line, sinker and sold on this serise. And the playlist is phenomenal! ...more

This was a great Rockstar Romance with a touch of the Paranormal. The storyline is well-written, with a loss, a struggle, chemistry and endearing characters. The H is a rocker who is struggling with the loss of his brother, the h is the daughter of the main act and the H was warned away from her. There is the ensuing stuff that one related to a rockstar lifestyle but the twist is the heroine has a gift. I liked it. I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review.

Since I am a “believer” I was very interested in this story and for the most part it was enjoyable, however it felt like I was dropped into the middle of another story that I knew nothing about. Regardless, mysticism, a band in turmoil
and my favorite part, Tripp the H, band mate Zain and the h Apple all had a POV, which sets up Zains book nicely. My issue is what I usually have issues with, an immature h who wants to act mature and fails in my opinion

Fantastic book!

I loved reading this book! Apple is the daughter of a rock legend. She meets the band Borrowed Faith to do an interview for her dad's new online magazine. When Apple and the members of the band get together, the rollercoaster ride of twist and turns begins!! Great story!

As you're reading this book you feel as if you are on the bus with the band Borrowed Faith. You feel their pain, anger and all the emotions as the band tries to heal and grow. Tripp and Apple quickly become my favorite characters.
You will fall in love with them all. Breathe Into Me isn't a normal everyday book about a rock band. There is so much more to this tale.

Ruby Rowe began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe, releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica romance and fell in love with the genre.
The pen name Ruby Rowe came about when she decided it best to keep her racier books separate from her young adult romances.
When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males
