Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.

Dear FTC (wo)Man: I bought this book on Amazon, technically, it was free today, so I bought it for $0.00. 🙂 The author didn’t ask for this review, Amazon didn’t ask for this review (though they might, sometimes they email me asking me what I think of an item I bought). I am not being compensated for this review, though there is an Amazon affiliate link in this post. Thought you’d want to know.
The last thing Chelsea Greene wants is to be rescued, but that’s exactly what happens when she’s caught wearing nothing but her swimsuit during a midnight emergency evacuation drill. Turns out her ‘hero’ is a former lifeguard who has no hesitation in offering the kiss of life. So not happening, right?
But for emotionally chastened Chelsea, one touch changes everything. She discovers a desire to satisfy this arrogant, demanding tease. Unable to express her own fantasies, she finds unspeakable pleasure in serving his.
Xander Lawson exudes easy charm. He likes a woman unafraid to match his appetite for unfettered fun. He doesn’t do complicated or emotional. But the raw need emanating from fragile Chelsea compels him closer. He can’t resist spinning a sensual fantasy world around them.
As passion spills outside their carefully selected boundaries, Xander learns Chelsea’s stronger than he first thought. But is she strong enough to handle the intensity he’s always kept hidden?
I grabbed Breathe for Me today because it was free for the Kindle and it’s got 4 1/2 stars on the Amazon review scale. I’m picky with the books I download for free. Less then 4 stars and I don’t grab them. I hate being disappointed with a book and 3 star books or less tend to leave me wishing I had listened to the other reviewers.
I thought when I was browsing through the books on my iPad, trying to figure out where to start today, that I was starting one of my review books (I had 10 of those sent to me today also).
I went to go leave feedback for the publisher and figured out it wasn’t one of my review books but I am SO glad I read it. So glad.
This book has an estimated 227 pages and I read them all in 3 hours. Could.Not.Put.It.Down.
Be forewarned: this book does have quite a few sex scenes (so it’s only for the adult readers out there) but there is this beautiful beautiful love story behind it. This story of conquering our pasts and both Chelsea and Xander have quite the pasts to conquer.
Those love scenes, let me borrow the title and something Xander says to Chelsea, breathe for me please. Hot hot hot! I caught myself not breathing a few times. Hot.
Xander has been moved to my fictional boyfriend shelf.
I feel a little guilty about putting him there because I really loved the character Chelsea. LOVED her. I was rooting for her. I was rooting for Xander. Even when he was a jerk at one point, I was rooting for Xander. I <3 Xander and Chelsea.
I cannot wait for Natalie’s next book in the series – Beg For Me – that’s Xander’s cousin’s Logan’s story. That might be an overdoing it on the possessive apostrophes I have going on in that sentence, and that my friends, is why I am not an editor. 🙂
Natalie Anderson has been officially added to my favorite authors page.
Whether Breathe For Me is free when you read this review or not I highly recommend grabbing it. LOVE LOVE LOVED it!
And Natalie, if you ever need another book reviewer, chica, I am all over that. So good!
