New Release + Review: Breathe by Carly Phillips

Breathe-SBPRBANNER-RBBreathe, an all-new second chance romance from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips is LIVE!


Fall in love with the Wards…

From troubled teen to successful general contractor, Jake Nichols turned his life around from his time in foster care. Divorced and single, he juggles his time between his daughter and his work. Next on his agenda, a new project that is his chance to prove his worth at the job he loves. Except he never anticipates that the only girl he’s ever loved and lost as a teen is now a grown and beautiful woman in charge of the project.

Phoebe Ward has survived and conquered a painful past that includes foster care and becoming a teenaged mom. She wants nothing more than to focus on the present but it’s hard when she looks into the eyes of her son, knowing she’s tried and failed to find his father. She’s resigned herself to raising him alone with the help of her family… Until a client meeting brings her face to face with her first love. A boy… now a sexy man she thought she’d never see again … and the father of her child.

So many years have gone by and both of their lives have changed drastically. Will they be able to put the past behind them and find the second chance they both deserve?

A Standalone Novel

FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!

I loved everything about Breathe. Both sweet and emotional this book had me hooked and kept me that way through every page. I’ve been anticipating Breathe since I read the first in this series, Fearless, and was so excited to finally get my hands on it. Breathe was everything I was hoping for with Phoebe and Jake!

Separated in the system as foster children when they were teenagers Phoebe was never able to tell Jake she was pregnant. After years of trying to find Jake Phoebe has accepted that he’s truly gone and her son will never get to know his father. When she walks in to meet a contractor for her job she never expected to be the man who was the boy she once loved. Life moved on for Jake even though he never forgot his first love. When these two are brought together again there’s much more than just the two of them involved.

I loved how much the children played into their story while the romance still flowed beautifully. So many times one or the other is pushed aside so one one can really shine, but with Breathe this story went beyond a second chance romance and adding in a heart melting family aspect that was just as prominent. It made Jake and Pheobe’s story that much more realistic and relatable. I truly could feel the emotion between them as they navigated this new life and fell back in love.
