“If you have to fight over a guy, he’s not worth it. Go for the one who’s waiting for you.”
I have loved every single book in this series and this one was no exception!! The one thing you can count on from the Ten Tiny Breaths series is that each book delivers a fresh, unique storyline with fantastic characters, a heart warming romance, and an all-round wonderful read.
“I’ve made so many wrong turns along the way, I don’t know how many right ones it will take to course-correct.”
This particular story was about a fiesty, rebellious spitfire of a heroine named Reece with a past as colorful as her hair that had landed her in and out of police cars for the better part of her teenage years. But underneath her tough exterior was girl who’d been abandoned by the ones she was supposed to count on and was just desperate to be loved.
But her life changed when one particular incident went a little too far and landed her back in a holding cell… this time though, she was offered a surprising chance to turn her life around. And she took it.
This was all going quite well until an epically humiliating one-night stand with a hot blond guy in Cancun who she prayed she’d never have to face again. She was hoping to just put that whole night behind her but when she turned up for work, she found herself face to face with him again…. her new co-worker!!
Ohhhhh and the fun began!!
While this is certainly a romance, there is no insta-love here. Or at least… it was there deeeeeep down but, on the surface, Ben and Reece had a total love-hate relationship and it was so much fun reading their banter and seeing them dance around each other. These two couldn’t be more different but they were also a wonderful match and I really appreciated how realistically and believably paced their relationship was.
I just have to say that I absolutely loved Ben!! I’m smiling right now just thinking about him. He was a big, strong, powerful, sexy, and protective ex-football-player-turned-bouncer-turned-lawyer with a huge heart, a soft spot for his Mama, and also interestingly absolutely no desire to commit to any one woman.
“You’re not my type.”
I’ve heard this before and I don’t believe her. Hell, I’m everybody’s type! Eventually.
What he did love though was a challenge. Especially the challenge of an angry woman….
“I see the shift in her, the moment when she realized that, though she’d prefer to castrate the entire male species right now, she can’t ignore her attraction to me.”
And I really can’t talk about Ben without giving a shout-out to his amazing mother. That woman was all kinds of awesome and she and Ben had such a fun dynamic!
“I’ve watched you chasing girls since you were six years old, so don’t pretend otherwise… This one’s different, though, isn’t she?”
“No.” The bells. The fucking church bells are ringing in her head. I know it.
I absolutely love KA Tucker’s writing style! There’s an ease and fluidity to her words that draws you right in and lets you get lost in the story. I don’t want to give too much away of the plot but I’ll just say that there was a lot more going on than I’ve mentioned here but I think it’ll be more fun for you to discover it for yourselves. I enjoyed it from start to finish. It was surprising, fun, and tugged my heart strings while also making me laugh out loud many times and even tear up!
Just like with all the other books in this series, you really can read any of the books as a complete standalone and be fine understanding everything but there is a core group of interrelated characters between all the books and since I have genuinely loved each book in this series, my personal recommendation is to read all the books in order. Really though, it’s up to you.
I highly recommend this for everyone!
