For years, Amy Underwood has been wracked by guilt over her sister’s fatal overdose. With one last shot at redemption, she is determined to open a drug treatment center - even if it means her shameful secret will be exposed. But when she sneaks into the biggest political event of the year in search of funding, she quickly discovers that in the world of fast-paced politics there is always a price - and this one could cost her everything.
Running for a second term, the young governor of New York, Roman Reese, finds that his privileged past and dark childhood could not only threaten the blue-collar vote - but his reputation and livelihood as a politician. So when he meets a sexy woman with big ambitions, he quickly strikes a deal: He’ll see that Amy’s clinic obtains funding, and she’ll play the down-to-earth girlfriend to help his electability. They’ll keep the relationship strictly business, scripted to the last detail, and end it when the polls close. But secrecy and desire have a way of binding hearts. As Election Day draws closer, so do Amy and Roman - until the discovery of one final deceit threatens to tear them apart for good.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I only have like 5 authors (Cole, Ward, J. Ashley, K. Ashely and Frost)... Now I have 6!
Ryan's men are the best of the best! They are alpha male, dominating, smart as a whip, and Boy are my SMEXY!!! The female leads are a stroll in the park too! This is some of the best darn character development ever... Loved it... And the story revolving around the characters are just great... You already know who the next book is gonna be about... or rather... who the BETTER GET A BOOK!
The secondary characters are just a intriguing as the main ones... I just loved this..
Just think of Break Me Slowly on Political Juicy Juice!
Gov.Roman Reese!!! Wowza! I so want to vote for him... And Amy... loved her too! Now it's Amy's best friend and her boss, the Governor's head of public relations... OMG!
Either those two will hook up or they each need their own book... Can't wait till this entire series makes it to Audible... Instant Download...just can't go wrong...
Narration was good, this is a great buy, sale or credit!
I mostly like science fiction. I've been reading novels since I was 10 years old. Like my heroines feisty and intelligent.
yes! amazing story! well performed! just an emotionaly charged piece of work!
The part where i almost cried. which never happens upon reading a book. i hate spoilers im not telling.
her use of different voices. some amusing and some sexy.
i found this book just by shopping around looking for my next listen. read other reader reviews. and there wasn't 1 not 1 bad review about any aspect of the book. that takes amazingness, dont you think?
Easy read. I was able to listen to this story 3 times and just fell in love with Roman.
Roman. So sexy
Hot for the Govenor
Not at first, but I couldn't' stop listening to it.
The story was good and the narration great. I really enjoyed this book.
The heroin could've had a SPINE! She was simple/weak/needy/desperate & a doormat.
Her performance was great. I like her voice and depiction of the other characters. I could tell the other characters apart.
The other characters were okay. The Hero was a true Alpha Male..
I just couldn't get into the heroin, she was just way to weak and desperate, I get the goal was to save the Hero and she had some self-esteem issues but why make her such a weak character. Why not allow her to walk away from the relationship at least once when he told her he wanted nothing more but a physical relationship. She kept coming back for rejection. And needless to say all the internal dialog was driving me crazy. With all her alleged insight why in the heck was she so desperate when it was obvious she was absolutely no challenge just too needy. She was always doing the chasing.
Roman and Amy are super hot together and help each other heal. it wasnt what i was expecting but I'm happy i got it. the chemistry between these two is hot
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I'm so glad I took a chance on Breathe You In. When you meet Roman Reese right at the beginning, he is all-consuming and totally charming! Immediately, I got the feeling that the governor of New York has a dark side that is hidden so perfectly. He doesn't waste time pursuing Amy, and they enter into a “relationship”. He wants to be re-elected again, and Amy could be the right person to help his image. Oh, boy! So many times I just wanted Amy to back away from this deal, but Roman is such an alluring character. She also has her own agenda to fulfill.
I want to make it clear that this story is not BDSM. This is a steamy contemporary romance set against a political backdrop with a hero who has a dominating and controlling personality. Roman is hot and cold and always gets what he wants. Although I could anticipate certain things happening, I still found Breathe You In to be a page turner and well worth my time. I had to keep reading to find out why Roman was so tortured. As the story unfolds, both their stories broke my heart. This series is adequately named, because once you're sucked in, you'll be sweetly tormented until the very end.
Cristina Panfilio was great with the delivery of the story
