The Air He Breathes (Elements, #1) by Brittainy C. Cherry

The Air He Breathes (Elements, #1)  by Brittainy C. Cherry

What it’s about I was warned about Tristan Cole. “Stay away from him,” people said. “He’s cruel.” “He’s cold.” “He’s damaged.” It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me. We were both empty. We were both looking for something else. Something more. We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays. Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.  Karla’s Review 2 Stars! OH SO GOOD to EGADS! This started out as a touching, […]

They blame those lapses for the disgraceful fact that she is a spinster at 28.  Cord Bennett, the son of his father’s second marriage to a Cheyenne woman, is more than an embarrassment to his well-to-do family of ranchers and lawyers – they are ashamed and afraid of their black sheep.  When Anne and Cord are found alone together, her father’s fury leads to violence. Cord’s family is more than […]

Barely Breathing by Brenda Rothert

Barely Breathing by Brenda Rothert

What it’s about People see what they want to see. A burly guy with tats and a permanent scowl is probably a criminal and an asshole, right? And I can’t fault ‘em, because in my case, they’re right. My world revolves around righting the wrongs of my past. Atoning for my selfish stupidity. And it’s enough.  Until I meet Viv – a woman who sees right through me. She’s not scared or intimidated. A woman like her is way too good for a man like me. But life as I knew it won’t be enough anymore. I realize now that before I met her, I wasn’t really living. Hell, I was […]
