"Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." 
A New Adult Romance Novel. (246 pages)

Bad boy
professional Motocross rider, Jesse Morrison, knows how to leave an impression. Except lately, it has mostly been bad impressions. Frustrated and wounded, he surrounds himself with women, booze and drugs. After getting kicked out of his brother's house, he relocates to California for the summer to crash at his uncle's place.

In Santa Monica, Jesse meets the one woman who can lead him back on the right path, beautiful twenty-two year old, Niki Milani. Only one problem; she is not interested. Niki has her own demons to fight. A past that left her emotionally abandoned by her own blood, her father. She keeps her heart guarded and finds it difficult to trust a man again. Especially not a bad boy player who is more messed up than she. However, Jesse never backs down from a challenge. Armed with a sizzling attraction, he is determined to prove to Niki that there is more to him than what appears on the surface. That he is the one who can heal her heart.

"Breathless" is Book 1 of this New Adult Romance series. The next book, "Fearless" is available now.

The story of Jesse and Niki is a New Adult Romance that will leave you breathless.
*This book contains adult situations and explicit content. 17+*

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh! 27 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the reviews of this book I was really excited about purchasing and reading it. I thought to myself, the authors a best seller, the cover page is professional and appealing- must be a winner right? Wrong.
The storyline had potential but the characters massively let it down. I love to read a book and feel like I know its people; that I can predict what they might do or say next and then be completely surprised by an incredible and unexpected twist by the author. You don't get any of that with this novel.
What you do get is an unbalanced male lead with a substance abuse problem, a history of violence and has about as much respect for women as cancer does the human body. Yet he managed to make a u-turn over night and is determined to get the girl because why? She's beautiful? She makes him feel good about himself? I don't remember ever reading about her intelligence or her personality in terms of his attraction to her? She's a piece of ass, and it comes across that way despite attempts by the author to make Jesse seem less shallow.
The female lead Nikki is a walking talking contradiction who bugged me from the get go with her conflicted personality. It's not like the age old theme of suppressing ones true self to please others before finally giving (metaphorical) birth to the person you really want to be. It's more like the author has created two entirely different characters, couldn't decide which one she liked more and decided to bung them in to one person. She's timid and shy and reserved one minute, the next she's partying like Lindsay Lohan wearing stripper heels. There is no blend, no steady easing from the old to the new her, it's like a light switch is being flipped back and forth.

This "book", (I use the term loosely) spent more time describing a sex scene with a one nightstand, (well technically half a blow job in a car), than it did the getting together of the 2 main characters. Not something that had me on the side of team Jesse. It then went on to blame his behaviour on a motorcross accident, which meant that he could no longer hoo...I so felt for him...not. He apparently also has a split personality, as the same bloke who comes out with sick making lines such as, "Follow your heart, the past is history, and tomorrow, well tomorrow is just a mystery"...(get me bucket)...also has the following oh so poetic lines and actions, when talking to the love of his life..." 'Last time I checked I had a dick. That's a girl's drink. Real men drink beer or Jack Daniels'...He grabbed his crotch and jiggled his hand as witness to his words"....
What an absolute charmer, and obviously made me think, gosh, he's a keeper, I do hope they get together! Seriously WTF?
These are just a very few examples of the intolerably ridiculous, immature phrases, dialogue and situations throughout the's absolutely riddled with them.
Then there were the many instances of using half a page to describe something, making you think it must have some significance, for it then to be left completely. The most disturbing of these was when the main character imagines using a broken beer bottle to slit her wrists...for no apparent reason and with no explanation as to why...then it was left, as if the author had moved onto a different story in her head for a few minutes, then got back on track???

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read - Highly Recommened! 23 Jun 2013
By Nina
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fantastic book!!
Each chapter of this book is set on either Jesse's POV or Niki's POV. The first few chapters each tells the story of Jesse & Niki (before they meet). Jesse's character is hot, good looking and has issues, due to some unfortunate events, Niki's character is the good girl who has always done the right thing for everyone else except for herself, until Jesse comes into her life. The story flows brilliantly and when they meet its time perfectly in the story.
The ending is great, left on a cliffhanger & has now left me eagerly anticipating book 2 in September 2013. I'm looking forward to see where the story goes for Jesse & Niki.
This is my second series I've read from Eve Carter. The 'Deceived' series by the same author are also brilliant reads.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best 14 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't rate this book very high, it lacked in the writing and I couldn't connect with the characters. It felt very cheesy at times, it just didn't work for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Glad it was free 12 July 2014
By Joannie
Format:Kindle Edition
Loads of swearing and discriptive sex, but juvenile characters. Take away the adult stuff and you have an adolescent story. I won't be bothering with part 2. Jesse is a complete petulant nut job.
