Joey
I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that.
I’d call it self-preservation.
I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next
door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat
to his revolving bedroom door.
My escape plan almost worked.
Except I left one thing behind.
Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it
back. This time for good.
Logan
I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about
everything.
Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not
about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.
She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her
absence left a gaping hole in my chest.
When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do
anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth.
But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living
so many lies.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Breathless is the kind of best-friends-romance where Josephine (Joey) has been in love with the other forever, and then one day, it just kind of smacks Logan in the face how fantastic his best friend is. Logan tries to fight his growing feelings for Joey, especially since he’s got a huge secret he’s trying to keep from his family.

I liked how Joey finally gathered her strength to confess her feelings to Logan and tell him why she ran away all those months ago. It was a miscommunication of sorts, as a result of the family secret Logan’s been keeping, and that should have been Logan’s time to come clean with her. But because he doesn’t, Joey’s life is then put at risk — will Logan get to her before it’s too late?

This is a swoony romance with all the right checkmarks for a best friend’s romance, complete with a bit of crazy other woman drama. Breathless is the third in a series with the Carter brothers, but it is a standalone. I have not read the other two books, and even though Logan’s brothers and their families are part of the bigger story, they don’t monopolize it or take anything away from Logan and Joey’s romance.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
