About this ebook

"An incredible beginning to a series that will pull at your heart strings! A true joy to read." ~ 5 stars


Meet the Maverick Billionaires―sexy, self-made men from the wrong side of town who survived hell together and now have everything they ever wanted. But when each Maverick falls head-over-heels for an incredible woman he never saw coming, he will soon find that true love is the only thing he ever really needed... An exciting and emotional contemporary romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully!


Will Franconi has a dark past that he's kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he's now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something’s missing. He doesn't quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him...if only he could ever be worthy of her love.


When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She's learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she's guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she's vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again.


Still, sometimes Harper can't help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who's wild and free...especially when Will's kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he's so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He's kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible?

Will Franconi is the most unexpected type of Billionaire, through his words and actions everyday he shows how much he cares for the world around him. Considering the life he came from this is really a refreshing personality to see. Harper Newman lives her life for her brother and is his only family. Thanks to a heart felt letter her brother writes to Will about his car collection Harper and Will meet and sparks fly. I loved the way these two seam to fill all the empty spaces in each-other without even trying. This was a great story of love and self discovery. Look forward to reading the rest of the Maverick's stories.

I'm a huge fan of Bella Andre and was super excited to see she had a new series coming out written with Jennifer Skully, who is a new-to-me author. I personally felt like Breathless in Love was a great start to an awesome new series. I really enjoyed this collaborative story by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully. Let's just say I totally fell in love with Will Franconi pretty much from the moment he appeared on the page. I loved how he showed Harper's brother Jeremy respect and didn't look at him as disabled. Honestly I think I fell in love with Will so quickly because of how he treated both Harper and Jeremy. I also really liked Harper and totally understood her overprotective nature with her brother. The chemistry between Will and Harper was there from the moment they first met. I loved that Harper has had to control her wilder side for so long to care and protect Jeremy, yet within hours of meeting Will, she starts to let that wilder side come out more and more. My only issue with the entire story was both Harper and Will clinging to their pasts to put up roadblocks to their future. I was so glad when Will finally gave Harper the true story about his past and honestly her reaction was so perfect and proved to me hands down that Will had finally found his happily ever after. I loved getting to meet the other Mavericks in Breathless in Love and especially their mom, Susan. Bella Andre has always written such amazing stories about family, and even though not all the Mavericks are related by blood, they are a family. I'm already counting down for the next book in this series.

This book is about Harper, Jeremy and Will. Harper is guardian to her brother Jeremy, who was hurt when he was knocked down and even though he is a teenager, he has the mental age of seven. Jeremy has a fascination with fast cars and writes to billionaire Will Franconi, asking him can he see his car collection. Will can tell how much Jeremy loves cars even as much as him and agrees to show Jeremy them. They agree to meet at an airport hanger where he keeps some of his collection, Harper and Jeremy arrive first and Harper thinks that Will will send an employee to show her brother the cars, so she is shocked when Will himself turns up. Will was expecting a younger child to be waiting with his guardian but when he sees a teenager and realises that something must have happened to Jeremy, he is also instantly attracted to Harper and earns brownie points when he treats him like the young man he is and shows him is cars. Will does not want to miss getting to know Harper too so he invites them to his home to see more of his car collection, then asks Harper out for a meal. Harper can not understand how a billionaire can be interested in her but allows him to take her out and she finds out what a genuine guy he is. There are ups and downs like in all relationships, this book made me laugh and brought me to tears but I loved it. This is a lovely romance story of love, pain, friendships and tight family ties (even though the people are not related), you get to meet the other Maverick Billionaires and I can not wait for their stories to be told now.
