Overview

Breathless is Book One in The Blue Fire Saga, a paranormal romance series filled with passion, suspense and supernatural danger. There are currently 6 books in the series: Breathless, Deathless, Helpless, Fearless, Heartless and Restless.

Weston College freshman Leesa Nyland has been fascinated by vampires since she was three years old. That’s when her mom started acting weird, refusing to go outside during the day and insisting the sunlight hurt her skin because she’d been bitten by a one-fanged vampire.

But fascinated doesn’t mean Leesa believes. Any more than she believes in blue fire, people who live for centuries, and kisses that can kill. When her beloved older brother suddenly disappears, she is forced to confront all these and more. She also has to figure out what to do about her mysterious new boyfriend. She knows Rave likes her a lot—so why won’t he kiss her?
As Leesa draws closer to finding her brother, she faces some gut-wrenching decisions. Should she risk her mom’s life trying to “cure” her? Should she continue seeing Rave, after he reveals his dangerous secret? And most terrifying of all, should she make the ultimate sacrifice—give up her humanity—to save her brother?

Readers and reviewers have been loving Breathless, call it "fabulous," "amazing," and "a page-turner."

Before I begin my rage-fueled grammarian rant, I must point out that I truly enjoyed the plot of this book. Tantilizing mystery, romance, and the supernatural - what's not to love? However, I strongly advise someone - anyone, really - to hunt down the editor of this book, shoot him in the foot, and repeatedly beat him with an eighth-grade grammar book. Violently, if it isn't too much to ask. The improper use of tenses left me wishing I could jump out a fifth-story window and hurl myself into oncoming traffic. The use of the *word*, if you will, "cuz" made my eyeballs bleed fire and my heart break at the utter lack of respect for the English language. In reading this book, I found myself glad it was an e-book, for, had it not been, I would've been forced to do what any good, God-fearing American would've done, and broken out the proofreading marks.

Breathless was a truly enjoyable read. Filled with passion and suspense, Breathless puts a unique new slant on the vampire world. The story contains several underlying mysteries and very likeable characters. I can't wait to read more about Leesa, Rave, Cali and the rest...

This book for me was just okay. I think he must have read Twilight before he wrote this book because there are too many references to Twilight. At first I was like ohhhh they said Twilight, Bella & Edward...so cute. After a while it made wonder if I reading Breathless or Twilight. I only keep reading because I want to know what is going to happen. If you are a die hard Twilight Fan...this might not be the book for you. This book made me Breathless for Twilight. If I go now I can watch all 3 movies on Showtime. :)

I don't really know what to say about this. It's not bad but it's not good. The concept is intriguing but I think it needs further development.

Breathless is a must read! Scott Prussing's writing pulls you in and makes you feel like your a part of the story. His characters are unique and interesting. The whole Blue Fire Saga is amazing! I strongly suggest it!

I truely fell in love withBreathless! It captivated my attention from the beginning through the end. I found it really hard to put the book down...drat having to go to sleep and get ready for work. You know you have a good book when you hope the day goes quick so you can escape to continue reading more. I would definatelyrecommend reading this book! You won't be dissapointed.

I LOVED this book. It has deep, intriguing characters that keep you completely interested. Plus, an awesome plot with a few new "vampire issues" to deal with. I cannot wait to start book 2!

Breathless is the first in a series of Blue Fire Saga Series.  A delightfully written paranormal romance set in the northeastern United States. I found the descriptions of the settings striking. Scott has created a visual tapestry that pulls you into the story. It was delightful to remember college days, walking the quad and the frat parties, as the college girls explored their new lifestyles.  I enjoyed the paranormal world opening and discovering ‘new species’ that I’d never heard of before. Leesa, Rave and Stephan created an interesting love triangle and the development of the story pitted them in several no win situations.  By the end of the story my heart was breaking and I really did tear up because I really cared about the decisions that were being made. It made me realize that I really did become engrossed in the characters. It takes a talented author to weave a story in a way that will pull you in and make you care. An excellent read.

Our Review: Let me start by saying that I purposely didn’t read the synopsis of this book before I started it. I try not to do that as a general rule, since I don’t want anything influencing my thoughts and expectations. Let me also be honest and say that I was apprehensive to even start it—a paranormal romance said to straddle the line between YA and Adult written by a dude—yeah, just wasn’t sure what to expect. However, let me finish by saying that Breathless was fantastic! A unique, creative, fresh approach to the vampire genre that we’ve all come to know and love, but with characters that are NOT from your ordinary Supe Groups or perfection personified and who wrap you around their little fingers just pages after you meet. As I continued to read I got more and more lost in the story and the vivid imagery that Scott weaves for his readers, and couldn’t wait to have another spare moment to pick up my Kindle and continue on. Where some authors just don’t know where to draw the line between too much and too little descriptive imagery and character building, Scott has it down to a science and gives you enough to clearly picture the scene realistically, but not so much that the reader suffocates and forgets what they were reading about in the first place. The pop culture references kept the story incredibly current, the wit was finely crafted and distinctly placed, the romance tender and believable [even in a Fantasy setting], and I can’t think of one point in the story where my mind wandered and I found myself wishing “oh if only he’d have done…”. All in all, I am SO glad that pushed aside my apprehensions to read and review this book, and while yes, it was a lot like Twilight, it also wasn’t. Breathless is its own beautiful beast and deserves to be judged on its merit alone and not against something whose name alone elicits preconceived notions. LITERAL ADDICTION Paranormal Book Club gives Breathless 4 ½ Skulls. We definitely recommend it for Young Adult readers, but also to anyone looking for a light paranormal breath of fresh air. We’re looking forward to what Scott brings us with book #2 of the Blue Flame saga.

I give a book about 75 pages to grab and hold my interest. If it can't, I move on to something else. This story was too slow for my tastes.

I loved reading this from the start. I am stuck in a place away from my home in a "lush" New England birthplace and found joy in the full and so accurate description of Connecticut. The new and exciting story was wonderful also.

I really enjoyed this book. The devotion of a young girl to her family & the lengths she is willing to go to save & defend them. Young innocent love & intrigue to keep the story going
