Xavier Kolton, aka Snake, has been through dark times and is still in recovery. He attends a grief counselling group on the anniversary of the death of his wife and child to a hate crime. It is through this group that he meets Estelle and becomes her support.
Estelle is trying to retain some semblance of a life after her husband is killed after being caught in a tornado and she also loses her unborn child. She is referred to the grief group and it is here she sets eyes on the rough, tough, tattooed biker who is so different to her late husband. However she finds herself being able to speak freely with Snake and not hold anything back. In return Snake feels an affinity with Estelle and the two strike up a friendship and support of each other. It is when things take a different path between the pair when things start to heat up.
This was a different story as to what I was expecting and I thought there would have been more around the tattoo shop. However that said, I still really loved this tale of loss and recovery. As always Shyla Colt can weave a steamy and passionate story that engages the reader to devour the pages. I also loved how the relationship was believable in that the build-up was gradual and flowed towards such an intensity.
I instantly fell for Snake and I wish this was a series of the MC as I would love to learn more about the brothers of the MC. Although I liked the first book, I loved this one much more mainly for the connection between the two main characters but also for the depth of the story and the realism of the storyline. Lots of heat but also lots of heart. Fabulous. Four and a half stars.
After a chance meeting at a support group Snake and Es begin to form a support system for each other.Snake and Estelle are trying to find a way to bring some sort of order and sense to their lives after devastating losses. Both have many different issues to deal with and Snake has unpleasant, unfinished business to attend to. Both need to find some sort of closure. As the stories behind their grief is shared, this unlikely pair become very attracted to the other. Can Snake open his heart to Es and allow her to see the real man behind his VP title at The Wild Ones MC? Can Es build confidence in herself and really let herself fall in love again after the freak accident that changed her life forever. There are hard hitting issues contained in this story. Racism at it's ugliest. Loss of a child. PTSD. Revenge, violence and retribution.
I loved this book. It drew me in from the start. The harder hitting parts are needed in the context of this story. You end up cheering Es and Snake on. You want them to be together. Do they end up together? They have a few mountains to climb before that can be considered. Can love connect this shattered pair and help them heal? Read it and see. You will not regret it. Would recommend this author. Reviewed on behalf of WTMO Review Group

I enjoyed the story a great deal. Colt has a unique skill for folding children into her stories which make them even more enjoyable reads. I loved that Xavier and Estelle found each other as they were healing from individual tragedies in their lives. They forged a strong friendship even before looking to one another for physical comfort. Yet, when the physical happened it was quite sweet and very sexy. The story would have been a solid four stars but there were more than a few editing issues in the story. These minor issues didn't ruin the story for me; however, it would have been a much more seamless read had they not been present. Editing aside, Broken but Breathing is a story that I would recommend to other readers.
While trying to live again, Es joins a grief group and meets Snake. Snake becomes her support and thus begins the most unlikely of friendships and the road to redemption of life. I found myself crying, laughing, cursing and screaming as I read their story. And in the midst of all the emotional ups and downs I cheered for these two wounded but loving people. Shyla Colt has done a remarkable and outstanding job with this story and one that is worth every penny.
Estelle lost the love of her life, her unborn child and home and has been living in the darkness. Snake lost his wife and daughter to a murder and he too is in darkness. The two meet at a grief group meeting. The moments these two have where they think they might be able to live again are so touching. I had so many OMG moments and loved this book so much. I used many a tissue and loved seeing Enzo again in this book.
