    Breathe (In Vino Veritas #2) by Lauren Jameson Breathe by Laur

    Breathe (In Vino Veritas #2) by Lauren Jameson

    Breathe by Lauren Jameson is a well written novel, plot and characters development is laid out very well, I found it very easy to read, fast paced and I didn’t stop reading it till I got to the end.
    Lauren Jameson gives the readers and great view of what the bdsm lifestyles demands.

    We first meet Samantha who is an artist and if very curious about what it would be like to be a submissive for a dominant male. Samantha has a strong personality and at first I wasn’t sure why she felt the desire to be in a submissive situation. But you can see and begin to feel her desires. It’s about being honest with yourself, exploring you deep dark desires and being able to dig down deep and let the exploring begin.

    Elijah who is what you can only describe as strong, confident alpha male who is a true dominant, but he ends up having a few internal struggles when it comes to Samantha and her role as a submissive partner.

    What I really enjoyed was the process of the story and having both of the characters internal feelings so well written.

    So if you want a look into the bdsm lifestyle from different prospective this is defiantly a book to pick up. Or do you want to read a romance novel with some added spice, hot alpha male then this is a book for you to read.

    I have rated Breathe (In Vino Veritas #2) by Lauren Jameson 4 starts and would recommend to anyone who enjoy a sizzling romance novel to pick up a copy for yourself. Also I found I really enjoyed the author’s writing style and would not hesitate to read anything else she has or will write.

    I received an e-galley of Breathe from the author for an honest review.

    With all of the books that have been written over the last couple of years that are compared to Fifty Shades, I'm a little cautious when I pick up a mainstream book with BDSM. Breathe was worth the risk. This book held me captivated from the word go. It's focus is on domination and submission, and really more about figuring out what it is Samantha really needs.

    Elijah is an alpha male with a strong need for domination. The great thing about the relationship with him and Samantha is that she lets him know when he needs to back off. As she's discovering what her limits, he's pushing boundaries. The give and take between the two of them was very well done. And despite Elijah's need to be in charge, he finds a way to let go and relax. So there's a bit of humor to keep things from getting to angsty.

    The trust dynamic of this relationship bugged me a little. At times I felt like Elijah came off too harsh. Too overpowering. While it made sense to the story, it was somewhat over the top for me. I would say it's a personal preference though, not a fault of the book or author.

    All in all this was a good book. It's not very deep into the BDSM dynamic or D/s. Very light really. If you're looking for a book to dip your toe in it would be a good one.
