Holding Her Breathby Nicole Green
Whitney Jones's first priority is making partner at DC mega-law firm Gibson and Grey. She feels guilty for not seeing her family as much as she should, but she always made it home to River Run, Virginia, to spend Christmas with her mom, stepfather, and the rest of her large family. This is how she quite literally runs into Chace on Christmas night as she's rushing toward the 7-11 to buy a very last minute Christmas gift.Chace Murphy thinks he's hit rock bottom when his girlfriend dumps him on Christmas Eve for a man old enough to be his grandfather. However, the worst day of his life turns out to be not so bad when he takes Whitney off guard outside of the 7-11. He bumps into her while he's trying to drown his sorrows that night. She's gorgeous, but after the way they meet, he worries that she'll think he's just a bumbling wino. He doesn't think he'll ever see Whitney again until a chain of events leads to him going back to DC with her after Christmas.The closer Whitney gets to Chace, the more trouble she has figur- ing out what's really important to her. Chace makes Whitney chal- lenge her most basic assumptions about her life. When Whitney's chances of making partner are endangered, she is shocked to real- ize that there may be something more important to her than money and power--something as simple as Chace's embrace.

Whitney Jones is a career driven lawyer who is working herself to death to make partner. Smart, stubborn, beautiful and level-headed, she wasn't concerned with love, all she wanted was to make her family proud. She is a classic type (A) personality that schedules everything around her. One day she meets a man that she knows she should avoid, but she can't help being drawn to him. Chace Murphy is a laid back kind of guy. His life's greatest ambition is to be happy. He is impulsive, fun loving and spontaneous. He meets Whitney one night at his lowest points in his life, but he a chance meeting he just couldn't get her out of his mind. What this story does is let you see the building of a relationship, and seeing how Whitney life starts to evolution. Whitney problem was she believes that power, money and prestige equals success and happiness. What she learns was that maybe the life that she has built might not be what she really wanted in her professionally and personally life. I pick up this book yesterday and finish it this morning. So I would have to say that I really enjoyed this book. The title will have you holding your breath.-the name of the book is," Holding Her Breath."
Enjoyed the book although a bit short.
