Joey
I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that.
I’d call it self-preservation.
I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next
door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat
to his revolving bedroom door.
My escape plan almost worked.
Except I left one thing behind.
Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it
back. This time for good.
Logan
I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about
everything.
Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not
about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.
She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her
absence left a gaping hole in my chest.
When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do
anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth.
But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living
so many lies.

 

MY REVIEW

Do you know what it feels like to love someone that only views you as a friend? Can you imagine watching from afar when that person seeks solace in the arms of someone else? For Joey – the pain of loving Logan was really more than she could bear. Determined to get Logan out of her thoughts, Joey leaves town and tries to escape the turmoil of her tattered heart.

 

Time doesn’t always heal a broken heart, and Joey is about to rediscover what attracted her to Logan in the first place. With a wedding upon the horizon, Joey returns to town to herself thrust into Logan’s life once more. As the two spend their days and nights with the chaos of planning a wedding, the duo quickly discovers that those feelings from long ago are determined to work their way to the surface.

 

Breathless is a true friends-to-lovers romance that has all of the ‘sweetness’ you would expect from this romantic trope. While the story was engaging, I found that it held a lot of predictability. In fact – I guessed the plot twist long before it ever played out in the story. Does that make me love the story any less? No….I just didn’t find myself blown away from the overall plot. This story was a sweet second chance at love for two individuals that have a huge interconnected life.

About Lex Martin

I write new adult novels, the sexy kind with lotsa angst, a whole lotta kissing, and the hot happily ever afters. When I’m not writing, I live a parallel life as an English teacher. I love printing black and white photos, listening to music on vinyl, and getting lost in a great book. Bitten by wanderlust, I’ve lived all over the country but currently reside in the City of Angels with my husband and twin daughters.
