Breathe is book #4 in the Colorado Mountain series by Kristen Ashley (who I personally think is the absolute best). This was my first Kristen Ashley series and I am hooked.
Officer Chace Keaton is the town hero. He worked behind the scenes to expose the very dirty Carnal police department. However, he is not comfortable with being called a hero. If the townspeople knew how far he had to sink to expose the police department for what it was they wouldn't think so, either. At least, that's what he thinks.
Faye Goodnight is the very shy, geeky, local librarian, who would rather live in a good romance novel than in the "real" world. Who can blame her, right? She's had a crush on Chace since she was in high school, but has never been in his league. Little does she know that she is the one that he has always wanted, but due to the mire that his life had become she was off limits. She knows he is the man that for her and now she just has to convince him that he is the hero she knows him to be.
A wrong is just wrong no matter who's doin' it or who it's done to. You know someone is doin' wrong, even if it has not one thing to do with you, you do what you can to right that wrong. You don't, you're no kind of person, or at least, no kind of person I'd wanna know.
This was such a great book. It has so much to offer, hot guys, amazing sex, sweet believable stories, and great suporting characters. Kristen's heroes are real men with real flaws. Yet, they have a way of making you want to find a guy just like that. The females are strong, loyal and compassionate, everything a woman should be. Believe me when I say read these books. You will not regret it!!!...more

Montana SEAL is the first book of the Brotherhood Protectors series and although the premise is one of my favorites to read I found the story a bit predictable. Normally, I love the quick damsel in distress, second chance at love trope fun to read. I can't say exactly where this story lost me, but it was just okay.
Hank "Montana" Patterson is a great male character. He left his family ranch to follow his dream of becoming a SEAL. He accomplished all of his goals and is now back home after a mission gone bad. His future is pretty much his to do with as he wishes, but his father was shot and the childhood sweetheart that he hasn't been able to forget is in trouble, leaving him no time to dwell on anything but keeping her safe. In the beginning, I actually really liked it. Montana was a solid character that oozed masculinity and big protector, but as the story reached the halfway mark I found myself rolling my eyes at his cheesy responses and actions.
Sadie McClain gave up her high school love so he could chase his dream of becoming a Navy SEAL. With nothing left to do she pursued her own dreams in California. Against all odds Sadie catapulted to stardom as an A-list actress after landing a lead role almost right away. She enjoys acting but not everything that comes with it and is now back home to hide out from a stalker that has just become too much. I'm not sure what it was about Sadie. I just never connected with her. She wasn't particularly wishy-washy or anything that normally annoys me in a heroine. She just was meh. Everything seemed so easy for her and she was just blandly accepting and flat as a character.
There could have been so many fireworks between this couple, but again it was just okay. They seemed to slip comfortably into their roles as bodyguard and client and then comfortably into their role as fake girlfriend and boyfriend, then comfortably into more. Don't get me wrong there were a few words of "this can't go any further", "my life isn't here", etc. but it seemed halfhearted at best.
Now, with all of that being said if you are looking for a sweet, semi-hot, comfortable read with very little drama you won't be disappointed. Again, I didn't find the story awful or unreadable. It was just okay. I'm not even opposed to giving the next one a try....more

This book does contain triggers, so if you are sensitive you may want to skip this read. Also, it must be said that this book is not a standalone. If you don't read Noose first you'll be stepping into a million questions.
This final installment of Rose and Noose's story touches on so many emotions I'm still reeling. Noose claims Rose and then spends the majority of this story trying to fully win her over. She loves him but is afraid to believe in her feelings, to really trust them. Not to mention she's dealing with Diablo/Drake winning visitation with Charlie and her parents disowning her if she chooses to pursue her feelings for Noose. One big emotional mess I tell you.
As promised we get the happily ever after this couple deserves, but it was a hard road to get there.
