BOOK REVIEW ~~~~~BREATHE by Carly Phillips

Breathe by Carly Phillips

My Review

A warm, gentle and well written second-chance romance

I first met Phoebe in the first Rosewood Bay book, Fearless , and was intrigued enough to want to read her story. This can very much be read as a stand alone, any information needed to enjoy the story is included in this book. I've read a few books now by Carly Phillips so I know that, even if it isn't a 5 star read, it will still be a book that I will enjoy and want to finish.

This is a wonderful second-chance romance about Phoebe and Jake, who fell in love as teenagers in care, only to be ripped apart. Soon after Phoebe was rescued by and offered a home with her aunt. She left care with more than battered emotions, she left it pregnant with her son. Many years later Jack and Phoebe meet again and discover their emotions are just as strong as they ever were. Can they overcome their time spent apart, the hurdles life throws at them and their own fears and hang-ups, and find their HEA?

Jake and Phoebe are both very pleasant and likeable characters, with a strong connection and intense chemistry. Since this is second-chance I didn't mind how rapidly they connected and fell in love. The plot moves with good pace and had some nice little twists in it. The story is fairly low on angst and drama, resulting in a pleasant and relaxing read.

If you're a fan of Ms Phillips, or looking for a well written, stress-free contemporary romance then I'm sure you would enjoy this. It does have a some quite steamy scenes, though not to many to distract from the plot.

Breathe, an all-new second chance romance from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips is AVAILABLE NOW!
