Review: Breathless by Eve Carter

Title: Breathless (Jesse #1) 
Author: Eve Carter
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Group: New Adult
Publication Date: June 19, 2013
The young, hot professional Motocross rider, Jesse Morrison, knows how to leave an impression. Except lately, it has been bad impressions. Frustrated and wounded, he surrounds himself with women, booze and drugs, until one day, he finds himself in a world of trouble. Kicked out by his brother, he relocates to California for the summer to help his uncle open Rookies, a local sports bar. 

In Santa Monica, Jesse meets the one woman who can lead him back on the right path, the beautiful 22 year old, Niki Milani. Only problem, she is not interested. Niki has her own demons to fight. A past that left her emotional 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 even more messed up than her. However, Jesse never backs down from a challenge. Blinded by 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.

The story of Jesse and Niki is a New Adult Romance that will leave you breathless.


Thank you to the  author for providing me with a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.

Breathless. What a perfect title for this story. This author has a talent of making you fall in love with her characters in her quick and steamy reads. Falling for Jesse was no different. Jesse was injured from a motocross accident. He is left devastated and broken. He tries to fill this void with booze (lots of it) and women. Sounds like your typical broken man, right? Not at all. Jesse has problems, and we find them out later. Once Jesse moves to California, to help out his uncle that owns a bar (and to stay out of trouble) he meet Nikki. And sparks fly. No, seriously they do.

I loved the dual POV of the story. It allowed me to understand the background of both Jesse and Niki and how they came to be. I think the author did a great job at character development. When Jesse and Niki meet for the first time, you can literally feel the electricity that sparked between them. I love when authors are able to capture this in their characters.

I didn’t know what to expect with this new adult story, but as the story progressed, I really enjoyed it. I liked the pace of the story, as it kept me engaged and wanting to read more. There ended up being secrets and mystery in this story. I love when this happens! I didn’t expect it at all. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. If you are looking for a well written, steamy, new adult story, then this is for you. 

About the Author 
(taken from Goodreads)

I am a true romantic at heart and with a modern contemporary erotic twist to my romance novels, you had better fasten your seat belt, as the ride is always fun, exciting and fiery.

Living in Southern California, but a mid-westerner at heart, I find plenty of inspiration for my books in my own exciting life. I have always loved the arts and as a young girl, I took dance classes and spent the summers reading books from the local library. Fascinated with the written word and its power to guide the imagination, I started writing short stories and later took Creative Writing classes in college. I graduated from The University of Iowa with a B.A. in Journalism and an M.A. in Higher Education. I also have a Teaching Credential from Chapman University in Southern California.
