Some mature/adult content.

Sometimes the one who broke your heart is the one who needs saving the most.

Piper Sandervale never thought she’d ever see Sasha Koval again, not since he’d taken her heart, ripped it out and obliterated it. Now six years have passed, and she has run into him once more at the local fairgrounds in Las Vegas. He desperately wants another chance, and he’s willing to do anything to get her back. She’s not willing to give him anything but a taste of his own medicine, and this may be her chance for payback. But is she only getting in way over her head?

Even as she plots her revenge, Piper discovers that something has changed with Sasha, and she finds herself struggling to justify holding on to past hurts as he continues his quest for atonement.

Who needs saving now?

Poor Piper. She trusted her heart to a man years back and had it stomped on.  It affected her so greatly, she just never got over it. Oh, she got over the man pretty much, but love… that’s not something she’s interested in any longer.

In fact, Piper turns into a sort of young bitter spinster!  She’s far too practical, but she can’t help it – she just wants to protect herself.

Well, in waltzes Sasha Koval, the hot guy who broke her heart.  And he’s all about making amends and sweeping her off her feet.

But Piper’s not hearing it – so she makes a sort of deal with herself – she’ll break HIS heart to get even. 

But Sasha has a his own agenda – win back Piper’s trust and love, no matter what. He puts up with all her moods and insecurities and has the patience of a saint as he waits for her to warm up to him again. And Piper slowly gets on board.

This book had a lot of positive family messages which I enjoyed. I can’t say much more, because there’s a surprise in there, but I adored that part.  I felt for Piper.  She was devastated by Sasha once, and that can be very difficult to get over. She struggled with her plot to hurt him as well,.  It’s hard to be vengeful when the person you’re directing your anger at is being so nice.

I liked that Piper held out though. She’s a very strong character who picked herself up after defeat and moved on.  She is just a little out of balance in the beginning of the book, but as more and more positive experiences with Sasha begin to erase the negative ones, she evens out.

Breathe me is a heartfelt look at heartbreak. I loved it.
