R E V I E W ➠ Watch Me Breathe by C.E. Johnson

(Elements of the Heart #3)


She’s a widow. And I’m not what I would consider a good role model for her young child.
It’s been a long road for me. I’ve been plagued with bad decisions and grief. You could say life sucker punched the wind right out of me.
Just like it did to the woman in the car that spun into the ditch right before my eyes. I helped calm her down until the ambulance came, and assumed I’d never see her again.
Judging by her wide eyes and the soda that poured into my lap when Montana Hutchinson delivered the drinks to my table at the town diner, I would guess she believed the same thing.
I thought we could be friends. After all, we have more in common than even she realizes.
But it seems Tana happens to be a magnet for trouble.
And I happen to be the kind of guy that can’t sit back and watch the danger unfold around her.
I’ll do anything to protect her and her daughter.
But every day I spend with her gets harder to push down the feelings growing inside of me.
Being with Tana not only proves I’m capable of love again.
I can breathe again.
Happiness isn’t something that everyone gets the privilege to have.
And there’s no way I’m about to let anyone take it away from me again.

RELEASE DATE: July 9, 2021

NEW to me author and books. This is book 3 and I have not read the previous books. I ran into this from a PR sign-up and I loved the blurb and feel of it and was happy when I was approved for an ARC!

Having not read the other books in the series there were a few scenes I wasn’t prepared for I guess you can say, it took me by surprise and it did contain a dislike of mine. I don’t do spoilers so I am going to leave that at that since it was a personal dislike rather than a trigger. That said this was a very sweet and part-angsty slow burn. The hero and heroine form a friendship before anything so it’s even sweeter when you get to the finish line with these two. The hero is very protective and sweet, the heroine is a single-mom that will do anything for her child.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
