This decision was not arrived at lightly, but after many conversation and debates, we have chosen Breathe as our monthly favorite book. The main reason for this, is that we both can identify with Faye. Kitty being a lover of Firefly and Nathan Fillion, and Lydia loving all thing Battlestar and Star Wars. Not to mention our mutual love of a good romance novel.
Why we gave it 5 Teacups:
It seems like the entire town of Carnal is scheming to get the town’s nerdy librarian and hot hero cop together. One of the things we like most about this novel is, that once the characters become a couple, they stay a couple. The angst between Faye and Chace is minimal. Faye blossoms in her relationship with Chace, while she helps him deal with issues stemming from family strife, and his wife’s murder. A women, who he did not love, and failed to protect. He is a good man who feels great guilty. The plot focuses on them rescuing an abused child, which not only brings them together but the rest of the community as well.
Why we gave it 4 Handcuffs:
Any story of crazy orgasms given to a 30 year old virgin librarian by a hot player cop, is going to be hot. After her cherry pops there is a lot of hot nighties and sexual exploration. Toys, definately come into play, as they recreate the scenes from the intellectual porn she reads.
