Is his hometown going to break his heart?

Mike Kennedy's college pals at Cambridge refuse to believe that his hometown, Tide's Way, North Carolina, is the good-hearted Mayberry Mike depicts. They bet him money that no one in Tide's Way will offer him a helping hand if he spends a week disguised as a grungy, dangerous-looking homeless guy. Mikes takes the bet.

So there he was, spending a chilly, rainy Spring break shivering and hungry under an old tarp draped over the railing of the bandstand on Tide's Way's small common. Three days had gone by without anyone offering him so much as a cup of coffee. He hated to lose the money he'd wagered but even worse, he hated that his hometown was apparently not what he'd thought it was. Would anyone prove that Tide's Way lived up to its ideals?

Jake Cameron won't risk hurting his best friend by admitting he loves her.
Little does he know . . . that's what hurts her the most.

Zoe Callahan, pregnant with the child her ex-boyfriend doesn't want, adores her ramshackle new home in the seaside town of Tide's Way, North Carolina. When she meets handsome Jake Cameron, her next-door neighbor who offers some fixer-upper help, her heart goes out to him instantly. He's the doting dad to three daughters and the kind caretaker to a mom-in-law with early Alzheimer's.
Jake is equally smitten with Zoe. But Jake, a contractor and volunteer firefighter from a close-knit family of brothers and a sister, won't risk a romance that could disrupt his family after his ex-wife nearly destroyed it.
Despite Jake's efforts to hide his feelings, he and Zoe quickly form an unbreakable bond. Zoe discovers love hasn't given up on her, even if the father of her unborn child did. Now she just needs to figure out why Jake is so determined not to let the heady attraction that sizzles between them turn into something more than friendship.
Then disaster strikes, and Jake is Zoe's rescuer. He already has her heart, but now, in spite of the rift that comes between them, she must trust him with her life and the life of her baby. And Jake must trust himself.

Kelly Harris is determined to make her antiques business a success. She won't let Tanner, a bodyguard who likes first edition poetry books, interfere with her life. But winning a mystery box at an auction changes everything. With Tanner working alongside her, they decipher the code in a forgotten journal, uncovering a young girl's journey to freedom and a powerful family's secret.


Working for a high-profile security company, Tanner has seen the worst that humanity can do. He doesn't believe in love. But when disaster strikes, he finds himself doing everything he can to keep Kelly safe - even if that means letting her into the most vulnerable part of who he is.


Just Breathe is the second book in The Protectors series and can easily be read as a standalone. All of my series are linked, so if you meet a character you like, you could find them in another book. Happy reading!


Praise for The Protectors Series:


“I am addicted to Leeanna Morgan's books! The only problem with them is that I hate coming to the end of one, and can't wait for the next good read. I love how she weaves the characters together, and draws you right into their lives. If you haven't discovered her, please do give her books a try. You won't be disappointed, except for not having found her sooner!”


“I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I couldn't put it down. I purchased it today and finished it just now. Captivating story from beginning to end. Definitely a five star book.”
