When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
This was a sweet romance. Yes it was a bit predictable, however it was charming. It is not as cleverly written as Molly Harper or Janet Evanovich but it did have a few places that made me laugh. All in all it was a fun romance story, if your looking for something without a lot of sex or offensive language I would recommend it!
This was a fun little story that was just a joy to listen too. The quirkiness reminds me of Sophie Kinsella's style writing. NO detailed sex scenes, not even detailed hot and heavy kissing. Probably rated PG or PG 13. Cute and light valentines day listen! Enjoy!
I have listened to many books by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, she is an amazing author that has the ability to create quirky, funny and charming romances. She can bring out the humor of everyday life, her characters have a quick dry humor that gets me every time. Breathing Room is so entertaining that I found myself laughing out loud in many places. Parents could relate to this story in many areas, such as having children climbing into your bed at night to keep the monsters away, or the joys of potty training a small child. I loved the romance as well, it was full of heat but not in a dirty way. I definitely recommend this story, it was one of my favorites by the author and the narration by Kate Fleming is shear perfection!!!

I can see why this story won a romance contest - I've never read or heard a story combining pro football, journalism, fashion modeling, Irish-American families and more - in one story. And seamlessly too :-).
Great humor and great sex too! (My vibrator almost burnt out from overuse ;-)) All the characters were fleshed out nicely - great interplay between Ryan and his friend, Jake; Samantha and supermodel friend, Hannah. This could easily have been made into a longer story but it still worked out nicely just as it is.
The narrator must be taking continuous audiobook lessons or is just getting better as she does more audio stories.
Loved it from start to finish! :-)
