Barely Breathing by Brenda Rothert

People see what they want to see. A burly guy with tats and a permanent scowl is probably a criminal and an asshole, right? And I can't fault 'em, because in my case, they're right. My world revolves around righting the wrongs of my past. Atoning for my selfish stupidity. And it's enough.

Until I meet Viv – a woman who sees right through me. She's not scared or intimidated. A woman like her is way too good for a man like me. But life as I knew it won't be enough anymore. I realize now that before I met her, I wasn't really living. Hell, I was barely breathing.

Really well written,great characters too. Kane is a wonderfully written tough guy who has a past. Viv is someone who sees him, really sees him and all his insecurities. I love a woman who is smart and confident in a storyline. Two people at first glance that one would not see together. Ijust cannot imagine them apart they just fit. This is my firstbook read by this author she is one to watch! Well done! Beachgirl reads........

Whoa Hot Stud incoming! Kane saves our heroine in at the end of a terrible blind date. But, who wouldn't fall into a big pile of hormones at the sight of Kane. Ms Rothert gives the reader an experienced journey from jittery first date to learning how to lean on one another. My favorite quote by far is: "You're damn close, woman. You wanna be wined and dined or not?" Kane is everything in the perfect alpha hero you want. Never looking for a HEA as he believes his past restricts him from grasping that ring. Vi is the perfect strong heroine to show Kane he is worth it. I love that Ms. Rothert gives you the chance to see all sides of Kane, the stubborn male to the deep touched man. The scene in Cara's office - awe - I wanted to give hugs out. I really enjoyed both characters. I felt a little shorted by not getting much of Vi's back story. By far this is Kane's story. If you love romance with big, sexy tatted men who have the ability to become tenderhearted, this novel is definitely for you. I recommend for one of those curl up and read days. 4.5 stars out of 5.
