Kristy Kay - Breathe

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Susan

Kathryn James is a single mother whose world came crashing down when her husband was killed while deployed in Iraq. He was her first and only love. She rebuilt her life around her children, not wanting or needing anything or anyone else.
Daniel Kaehe was an A-list model turned actor who spent his entire life looking for an all-consuming love, but only finding women who wanted to be seen with him and didn’t care to look any closer.
A chance meeting throws these two un-likely souls together and the chemistry is immediate. Can they overcome their pasts to build a future together or will the past tear them apart? 

So walking into Kristy Kay's 'Breathe' blind I didn't know what to expect. But I admit the first 35% took me a while to get my head around. But once I got there, the rest of the story flowed and I fell for the two main characters, Daniel and Kathryn.  

Daniel, the famous actor would surely never fall for the single mother (& widow) Kathryn?! Well that's what she thought...Daniel knew upon first glance that she was the woman for him...

"I running through each moment that I had been with Kathryn, each smile, each touch, every emotion that she had brought out in me....none of them had touched me as deeply or as quickly as the women beside me had.  Had I finally found the one woman I could live with and love for the rest of my life? "

But their journey would be far from easy. And I think the gaps in their relationship made it hard for me to connect with emotionally in the beginning...this at a time they would go without one another, only to fall straight back into their pure adoration of one another the moment they reunited.
But with Daniel's history and fame there would be a storm brewing that would make Kathryn be the protective yet loving mother she was.  But finally let the first man after her husband's death many years ago to protect her..

As long as he was next to me I knew I was safe, I was protected even if I was at my weakest.

A turbulent path of learning, love, family trials and tribulations, psychotic exes and new friendships, the pair would finally accept their fate together. I didn't expect to love this story as much as I did. But by the end their love story had me hooked. And the sex?! I had no idea there was so much in this book! But it added to the physical element of their already hot emotional connection.

...but in this moment with this man, I didn't fear anything...I was more than enough for the first time in my life and I was going to enjoy every second of it.

The references to "breathe" also stuck with me....from that of the sheer pain Kathryn suffered in her body, or to the physical assault of her senses to the man she fell head over heels with upon entering the same space as him. The emotion Kristy Kay captured in her story was just incredible...

"Where you are is home, and I am finally home.  Now I can breathe."

A four star read....that I can't recommend enough...please go one click this story.
