Breathe is book 4 of the Colorado Mountain series written by author Kristen Ashley and read by Emma Taylor. Breathe is a contemporary romance novel. Faye, the local librarian, has been attracted to Chace for years. Detective Chace Keaton feels the same way about her but neither know about the other’s feelings. The town of Carnal’s Police Department had some serious problems as in corruption! Chace’s dad was an unsavory character too. Chace’s first wife was murdered and, while it was a long way from being a happy marriage, it has left him feeling guilty and angry. The barriers began to come down and they began a whirlwind romance. Faye notices a young boy taking books from the library without checking them out. She and Chace realize the boy is in trouble and needs help. Faye to the rescue!
Breathe by Kristen Ashley is romance with a lot of sizzle. Virginal Faye is a delightful character. When she became angry she was hilarious. Faye is soft, clever, authentic and stunning. Chace may be the typical alpha male but he also showed a lot of emotion. Faye and Chace worked well together. Malachi/Jeremiah was a great addition to the story line. Breathe is a amazing, sweet and sensual romance. Kristen Ashley is a talented writer; she has successfully created memorable and likeable but not perfect characters. Characters need to have flaws to be realistic. This is the fourth book in the series but it does a great job of standing alone.
