Wrong! Lia’s still reeling from the mother of all bad breakups, and she really doesn't have the patience for Alastair Holden – despite his effortless charm and cute British accent!Arrogant and totally inscrutable, he's exactly the sort of guy she wants to avoid but can't: the man behind the mystery proves just too tempting to resist.Drawn to him, Lia is forced to battle with her own insecurities, and the closer they become, the more she recognizes her own weaknesses as she peels away his layers with every night they spend together. Discovering the past Alastair is so desperate to conceal, Lia must decide if they can heal one another together or if their deepest fears will tear them apart.

Ok so picture this, I'm at my desk in my dressing gown when I start pacing my room, up and down I go reading my kindle. Why you may ask well its because Catch My Breath is deliciously frustrating, with leading characters that are so damaged they are their own worst enemy! You are desperate to find out what has caused so much trauma and chaos in their lives. Leading lady Lia is scarred by her past relationship. Dating the son of a senator she has dealt with over inflated egos, demanding and controlling natures before, but nothing can prepare her for broody Englishman Alastair Reid Holden! Alastair heir to a massive multimedia company is not your typical hero, no he is my favourite type of man he is an anti-hero damaged and broken with impenetrable shields blocking out all emotion and complications he has rules but these rules don't apply when the lovely Lia falls into his life! I loved the characters their turmoil infused with charm and humour its fabulous, their ride isnt easy! They have a hell of a battle on their hands, a battle to break each others barriers and show each other that the past doesnt define who they are, that they do deserve love and they are not broken they are worth saving The writing style is fresh and the play on words and references to English slang was brilliant, being English I really enjoyed that immensely. You really get involved with the characters you're attached to them, you're left wanting more from them begging them to open up. Lynn Montagano write with finesse and Catch Your Breath is not your average love story! Once I got to the last page I freaked out! Seriously I tweeted the author because I didn't know it was a series, this is going to be one hell of a series, full of questions, full of answers that we are desperate to know, Its going to be Fabulous, because nothing says I Love You more than defeating your own demons and letting go, but can Lia and Alastair survive, what will be next for them, will the past come back to haunt them once again? I NEED TO KNOW!!!!!
