Will Franconi has a dark past that he's kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he's now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something's missing. He doesn't quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him.if only he could ever be worthy of her love.

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?

Liza's Review

I'm a huge fan of Bella Andre and was super excited to see she had a new series coming out written with Jennifer Skully, who is a new-to-me author. I personally felt like Breathless in Love was a great start to an awesome new series. I really enjoyed this collaborative story by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully.

Let's just say I totally fell in love with Will Franconi pretty much from the moment he appeared on the page. I loved how he showed Harper's brother Jeremy respect and didn't look at him as disabled. Honestly I think I fell in love with Will so quickly because of how he treated both Harper and Jeremy.  I also really liked Harper and totally understood her overprotective nature with her brother. 

The chemistry between Will and Harper was there from the moment they first met. I loved that Harper has had to control her wilder side for so long to care and protect Jeremy, yet within hours of meeting Will, she starts to let that wilder side come out more and more. My only issue with the entire story was both Harper and Will clinging to their pasts to put up roadblocks to their future. I was so glad when Will finally gave Harper the true story about his past and honestly her reaction was so perfect and proved to me hands down that Will had finally found his happily ever after.

I loved getting to meet the other Mavericks in Breathless in Love and especially their mom, Susan. Bella Andre has always written such amazing stories about family, and even though not all the Mavericks are related by blood, they are a family. I'm already counting down for the next book in this series.
