I was gifted this book from the Author for an honest review.  I gave this book 5 stars.  This is book 1.5 in the Breathe series.  This is in Tate's POV. Just as Savannah and Tate begin to think that maybe they can make things work, jealousy gets in the way on both of their parts. They both make decisions that will effect their relationship and they both have to figure out if fighting for this is what they want or do they just want to walk away?  Rachel does it again. She left me wanting more. I love that this was in Tate's POV and we got a glimpse to who he is and his feelings. He is a great guy with a bigger heart. And he is so swoon worthy! I cannot wait until book two comes out and we get to spend more time with this couple and hope that they can finally get it right and have their HEA! Thank you Rachel for a great book !!

So... How excited was I that my boyfriend got his own novella????!?!!? Oh, excuse me. You haven't met my boyfriend Tate Connors? What. the. Heck. We need to remedy that! First of all, I am so in love with this series. Rachel is such a talented author and I am so invested in her characters. I can't tell you how many times I've unleashed all my feels on her about these books! Just Breathe is the first book in the series (see my 5 star review HERE) and it is from Savannah's perspective. Savannah has just moved from Australia to California and has a fresh start available to her. She has known great loss in her life and to numb the pain, she loses herself in men, drinking and partying. Her surrogate father, Mr. Davenport, is the one to give her a job opportunity and help her get her life turned around. She never in a million years expected one of Los Angeles's most notorious womanizers and players to be the one to turn her into a one man kind of girl. Yet, Tate Connors certainly is no ordinary man. Oh, Tate. He also has known loss in his life and never ever expected to fall in love again. Besides having killer sexual chemistry- Savannah and Tate can see beyond each others' toughened exteriors and they recognize a fellow kindred spirit. Both have demons in their past that haunt them and have to work hard to keep those demons at bay. Sav and Tate's relationship reminds me of a quote from the movie, A League of Their Own. Tom Hanks says it and it's always stuck with me: "It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great." Sav and Tate still have a long way to go in their relationship and we really see that here in Breathless. As much as I love Tate, he tends to say things without thinking first. He lets his jealousy get the best of him and Sav becomes frustrated with him. She doesn't understand why he can't trust her and I completely get where she's coming from. However, Tate isn't mistrustful of Savannah. He distrusts one person in particular and Sav gets caught in the crossfire. As much as Sav talks about how she wishes Tate would trust in her and their relationship, she suffers from the same apprehension he does. The ending is pivotal to what will come next in Breathe Again and I found myself a bit angry with Savannah. Trust is a two-way street and until these two learn how to trust one another, their relationship will remain a fragile one. I loved that Rachel wrote this novella from Tate's point of view. It was awesome to get inside his head. You can really see how much he loves Savannah and how he would go to the ends of the earth for her. His life has been turned upside down since she walked into it and watching his character grow and learn how to love again is such a poignant part in their story. Seeing his thoughts and fears firsthand really help us understand why he is the way he is and I felt that was such a crucial element. I am so excited that Rachel announced the sequel would be dual-POV. Even though this is a novella, I feel it created a perfect bridge between the two full length novels. It is not a retelling in Tate's POV, but picks up right where Just Breathe leaves off. We get to see Jack and Tanzi, two of my favorites from the first book, as well as Mr. D. I love Mr. Davenport so so much. He is fiercely protective of Savannah and he does not hesitate in speaking his mind to Tate. He will not allow him to break her heart and constantly tells him to not screw things up. We also have some other characters pop up unexpectedly that are determined to cause problems for Savannah and Tate. (angry face inserted here) If you guys haven't started this series and you love NA Contemp. Romance, this is one to pick up. As I said earlier, Rachel has created a cast of amazing characters that really stick with you. I am so anxious/eager/excited/nervous to get my hands on Breathe Again to see how their story will conclude and if they will get the HEA they both so desperately deserve after all they have overcome.
