REVIEW – LEAVE ME BREATHLESS bu Jodi Ellen Malpas

SYNOPSIS

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the This Man series comes a sexy and emotional follow up to her wildly popular standalone romance The Protector.

Ryan Willis has spent years in the protection business, a job that requires constant vigilance and quick thinking. His only chance to truly relax is at his secluded cabin in a small town where there are never any surprises. So when Ryan returns after an assignment and encounters a beautiful stranger, he isn’t only surprised, he’s also instantly intrigued.

Hannah Bright is a breath of fresh air, and Ryan is soon completely consumed, unable to stop from falling for her. As the two grow closer, his instinct tells him something is amiss. Yet nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he starts digging into her past.

Hannah spends her days painting, running her arts and crafts store…and hiding too many secrets. It’s why she won’t let the ruggedly handsome bodyguard get too close. But their chemistry is undeniable, and Hannah quickly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. He is peace personified, a balm to her battered soul. Yet the gorgeous, captivating man who has swept Hannah off her feet doesn’t even know who she really is. And the moment he finds out, both their lives are at risk.

 

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****4.5 STARS*****

I move in close behind him, my attention dancing across the beads of water on his skin that are sparkling like crystals when the fading light hits them. And still, he remains motionless, waiting for me, patient. Quiet. He calls to me without a word. And I admit to myself for the first time, I’m desperate to stay here. With him. Forever.

 

 

 

”LEAVE ME BREATHLESS” is a spin-off of ”The Protector”. The Hero, Ryan Willis, is ex MI5 and close friends with Jake Sharp. I liked this book so much more than its predecessor. The pace of the story flowed perfectly and I felt a connection to the main characters. Ryan and Hannah had insane chemistry. While the story reminded me so much of the movie, ”Sleeping With The Enemy”, I can’t deny that I was thoroughly entertained. There was plenty of JEM’s signature steam with a healthy dose of nail-biting action thrown in as well.

 

 

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 4
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

”LEAVE ME BREATHLESS” releases on November 5th!
