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?
I had been a fan of Bella Andre years ago, and like so many other authors I used to love they have become lost in the mix as I read more and more new authors. I am so glad that when I had the opportunity to sign up for this one I jumped on it because it reminded me why I loved her writing and it introduced me to a new author, Jennifer Skully.
Breathless In Love is the first book in the Maverick Billionaires series and it is a pretty good start to a new series. Will and Harper’s story is one that will have you thinking about anyone you have ever judged. Let me explain a little but to much that I give anything away. You never know what someone’s past could be. Some of the poorest people could have started off rich, while some of the richest could come from poor circumstances in life. You should not judge someone until you know the real them because they may just surprise you. The book just isn’t about Will and Harper, it is also about Harper’s younger brother Jeremy. Jeremy will steal away your heart because while he may be the reason why Will and Harper meet, he is just something special.
Overall I really liked Breathless In Love, it reminded me why I love a good romance book, it had the perfect mix of romance, angst, heart ache, love and sexiness. Don’t get me wrong while I love a really naughty book, from time to time a book like Breathless In Love is just what I need.
