This second story in the Rosewood Bay series was an enjoyable read and a nice, sweet, easy going second chance romance. That had enough heat to really hold my interest. Not to mention it was well paced, had little angst and was very engaging. And I would happily recommend it to others. **I was kindly provided with an ARC by Booksprout in exchange for an honest review**

Breathe is the second book in the Rosewood Bay Series. A second chance meeting of your first love, and the father of your son. Phoebe Ward is shocked to see Jake Nichols is the foreman for the renovations on a house she is selling. Phoebe never stopped loving Jake - will she finally get a chance at getting her HEA. If Jake has anything to say he will get his HEA with the love of his life - Phoebe. There are obstacles they must overcome, but together as a unit they can do anything! I truly enjoyed getting to know more about Phoebe and Jake, and watching how they handle being together again after their separation, and the work that goes into getting their HEA. I volunteered to review an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

***4 Stars*** After reading the little tease of what was coming up for Phoebe at the end of Fearless I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Breathe, and I have to say this was a great read. It was a quick, fun and smexy read that had a couple of twists in it that I didn’t see coming, but really liked how they were the catalyst for getting Jake and Phoebe to their HEA. Jake is a good man. He may have had a difficult childhood, but he’s learned from it and become more than he probably thought he would be. He has a good heart and when he wants something he doesn’t back down until he gets it. Phoebe’s past isn’t all wine and roses, but she’s gotten through with a positive way of looking at the world and a lot of determination. She loves her family and will do what needs to be done to make sure they thrive. Jake and Phoebe’s second chance at love journey was a fun one, and the Jake found out about his son was definitely not expected. I really liked Jake and Phoebe together. The chemistry was still there, even though they hadn’t seen each other for years, and I liked how they were together once the awkwardness wore off. There was a good bit of drama going on, but it never got into the angsty OTT arena and I actually like how one issue ended up being a much needed kick in the butt towards them getting their HEA. This really was a fun second chance/secret baby romance. I loved the twists and turns and how everything was handled in the end. It was fun to get a little time with Aunt Joy as well as catching up with Halley and Kane. But with that little tease of Freed at the end, I’m definitely looking forward to meeting Juliette! ~ Copy provided via RockStar Lit PR & voluntarily reviewed ~
