Fall in love with the Wards…

From troubled teen to successful general contractor, Jake Nichols turned his life around from his time in foster care. Divorced and single, he juggles his time between his daughter and his work. Next on his agenda, a new project that is his chance to prove his worth at the job he loves. Except he never anticipates that the only girl he’s ever loved and lost as a teen is now a grown and beautiful woman in charge of the project.

Phoebe Ward has survived and conquered a painful past that includes foster care and becoming a teenaged mom. She wants nothing more than to focus on the present but it’s hard when she looks into the eyes of her son, knowing she’s tried and failed to find his father. She’s resigned herself to raising him alone with the help of her family… Until a client meeting brings her face to face with her first love. A boy… now a sexy man she thought she’d never see again … and the father of her child.

So many years have gone by and both of their lives have changed drastically. Will they be able to put the past behind them and find the second chance they both deserve?

“Breathe” was a delightfully sweet second chance romance.
It was such an easy read that was so easy to connect and get lost in.
As a rule, I’m not a big fan of second chance love stories but with this one; I just couldn’t help but get pulled right into the excellent narrative and easy emotion that was portrayed between these pages.
Both Phoebe and Jake were so easy to warm to and I really loved the way these two were such excellent role models for there children.
Both have been dealt crappy cards in life and have made choices that have impacted them greatly, but in doing so have also learned lessons from this and have moved forward with both maturity and a fresh outlook; despite leftover understandable baggage.
a Truly commendable characteristic.
In fact, the only negative observation I found myself observing about “Breathe” was that I wasn’t a great fan of the ex-wife’s inclusion here.
And I really did think that Jake should have stepped up to the mark more and maybe stopped treating his ex Lindsay with such Kid gloves.
I know she was the mother of his child and all but it had been four years.
long enough, in my opinion, to call someone out on there totally unreasonable behaviour.
Got to say also that I really loved the cover on this one; truly eye-catching.
So, in conclusion, this was a fantastic romantic read and if you have sweet tooth well this one’s for you.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of ” Breathe (Rosewood Bay, #2)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
