Sometimes you don’t realize how special a moment is until it’s a memory. When he held me in his arms I saw a handsome, vibrant man with desire in his eyes and love in his heart. But Ruben Strong was more than that; he was a way out of my darkness, a glimmer of light peeking through my shroud—he was a piece of what I no longer had. What he didn’t know, but I did, was that he’d been waiting for me. It had taken me time and courage to go looking for him, but if I hadn’t done what I’d done on my bleakest day, he wouldn’t have been there for me to find. My tumbling decisions led to a meeting that tipped everything I thought I knew about myself upside down. Lying warm and naked in his bed, my old memories became new ones and our souls talked to each other in a way only we could understand. And our bodies, once we were brave enough to hum a quiet tune, quickly produced a beautifully sexy song that threw open the doors to love and laughter in my life once more. Reader advisory – Breathe You In is a romance with themes of love, loss and hope and contains several explicit sex scenes

I loved this story. Granted she started off kinda crazy and I was worried she was going to be like home~girl from the last book "Anything For Him"but unlike that girl; she evened out and the crazy dropped away.

 Granted what she didn't wasn't kosher, by any means at all; but I totally understand why she did it.  Grief can lead people to do strange things, and there are some serious moments within the book that make you wonder if perhaps that is why they don't share donor information with the families unless the receiptant wants to meet them.  There are some good points brought up by this story that I really enjoyed reading.

The love story that forms is hot and the couple was so beautiful.  At least  this lie didn't last for an eternity and it actually brought them closer.  I liked that Ruben was a strong character even though the story was told from Katie's point of view.  His reaction to her truth was amazing and raw and real. I loved it and the way her friends were there for her and were genuinely happy that she was moving on.  I truly loved Katie's character as she developed and wanted to be more than just a widow, she wanted to be more and she went for it.

Good story it flowed well & handled the topic of grief and loss so well. Truly enjoyed it & highly recommend it to those who love a good romance and an even better erotica.

I so want to thank Lily Harlem for allowing me to read her story this was amazing.
Happy Reading
