Source: Earc from Bloomsbury via Netgalley Disclaimer: I received this book as an ARC (advanced review copy). I am not paid for this review, and my opinions in this review are mine, and are not effected by the book being free. I wanted to read this one because I enjoyed Tiffany's writing in the first book in this series, and interested to see the dive back into the business of black market organs. I liked the characterization and romance in Hold Me Like A Breath and hoped for the same thing here even though it deals with a different main character and romantic interest. I liked Maggie. Even though she is dealing with a lot of grief since her boyfriend Carter died. She kept it from everyone for a lot of reasons, some on her side and others his reasons, so most don't understand when she is overcome with grief since they didn't know about it. But she was strong and smart. She wants to take over the family business, but things are changing in the organ world, and she has been out of it for a while. But she tries to get back on the good side of her father, the businessman. But things just can't seem to go her way because she downloads a virus onto the computer and their privacy is at risk. Then Alex comes into her life, and the two have chemistry. It makes things complicated because he is sick and needs her family's help, and she needs to recover herself once and for all. But she is put in charge of his care and she begins to realize more about herself, her perception, and the need of patients, which she always tried to dismiss, focusing on the numbers and politics. I really like the romance in this one it was a very slow build and I like their bantering and how much she learned from him spending time with them instead of focusing all on the numbers and that side of the business. The organ act plays an even bigger part in this than it did in the first one and Maggie has to make some tough choices as far as supporting her family are supporting the bill and then still fighting for Alex's chance at life that she inadvertently promised to him. The ending was good for me and I wasn't sure how they were going to play it in order for a HEA but I think it wrapped up well and I was satisfied. Bottom Line: Liked it and the slow romance.
