Publisher's Summary

Sometimes you meet the right person at the wrong time…

Mark Williams has loved Meredith since he was seventeen. A successful man with a strong family, he's worked hard to move on from Meredith breaking his heart all those years ago. When his path crosses with the only woman he's ever loved again years later, Mark knows there is nothing he won't do to keep her in his life. But when the going gets tough, will Meredith stick around or will he lose her again?

But true love has a way of finding its way back.

Meredith Summers is a dancer. One of the first things she learned in following her dreams is that timing is everything. She has spent the past ten years following her dream touring with mega-stars while trying to forget the high school sweetheart she left behind. Now she's back in Seattle, running a successful dance studio with her best friend Jax and determined to move on from her gypsy past. Until the day she sees Mark Williams and time stands still. It's as if no time has passed at all when Meredith finds herself in Mark's arms again. The chemistry, the bonds and the love are as strong as ever and hearing Mark whisper breathe with me in her ear is a balm to her wounded soul. But will she grab onto this second chance at love, or is the timing all wrong for them again?

Don't miss catching up with the Montgomery and Williams clans in this latest installment of the With Me In Seattle Series from New York Times best-selling author, Kristen Proby.

    "With Me in Seattle Series"
    What did you love best about Breathe with Me?

    Great story, happy, sad, laughing. Good Characters. Continuing story of family members from previous 6 books of the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The love between Mark & Merridth and their sexy love story.


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Mack and Eric Michael Summerer – was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed "JAX". They were great with all the other characters too. A pleasure to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was very moving when Merridth remembers what happened when she was 13 and she lost her father and sister.


    Any additional comments?

    All books in this series were fantastic. I am so glad I found this series to read. After Come Away With Me, the first book, I was hooked. All the characters were so good in all the books.

    "Great Romantic Love Story"

    Mark was heartbroken when his high school sweetheart Meredith broke up with him to fulfill her dream of being a dancer. They meet again 10 years later and re-kindle their romance.

    I started this series a few months ago and have enjoyed the characters in each of the books.

    This was a truly heart warming story. It had me crying and laughing the whole way through.

    Kristen has done a wonderful job with this series and did a spectacular job with this book. The narration by Jennifer Mack was also terrific ~ I don't know how she got through Chapter 20!

    If you are a romantic, you will enjoy this audiobook!

    "Didn't like Jennifer Mack very much"

    The story is Ok, but Jennifer's attempt at male voices is awful. Eric Michael summerer's female voices were much better

    Story
    "Female narrator does terrible male voice for lead"

    The overall story is excellent, with passion and charm. The male narrator is also quite good. However, the female narrator has a terrible voice for the male character that reminds me of a grown up Spridle from the old Speed Racer cartoon. It ruined what would otherwise be quite passionate love making scenes, at least for me.

    "Another one of the Seattle Series....."
    Would you listen to Breathe with Me again? Why?

    Don't get me wrong, but I fell in love with Leo so, yes maybe I would listen to Breathe with Me again but I definitely have listened to Rock with me a gazillion times so far.......


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breathe with Me?

    Hearing Mark whisper 'breathe with me' in her ear...


    What does Jennifer Mack and Eric Michael Summerer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Eric Michael Summerer his voice is magnificent, and Jennifer Mack is perfect too!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Breathe with Me of course!


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you very much Kristen Proby for all the Seattle books, and thanks Jennifer Mack and Eric Michael Summerer for your lovely voices that gave life to all those books we fell in love with.

    "Just NO."
    What did you like best about Breathe with Me? What did you like least?

    I love the characters of With Me In Seattle. Mark had great potential as did the beginning of the book, but the story deteriorated more and more as I got further into it. How could Mark realistically take Meredith back without so much as a backward glance after she shattered his heart 10 years prior? Its unrealistic. What I absolutely CANNOT STAND is Jennifer Mack's voice for Mark!!! She makes him sound like a fraggle or a chipmunk! In the beginning, I thought Jennifer had done it on purpose because the characters were such young lovers, but after the story picked back up 10 years later in that same nerve wracking voice, I had to ask for my first Audible refund. It thoroughly ruined his masculinity and I couldn't take one word from "his" mouth seriously!


    If you’ve listened to books by Kristen Proby before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first audiobook from Kristen. I have the first 5 books in the series in paperback. I enjoyed those very much.


    What didn’t you like about Jennifer Mack and Eric Michael Summerer ’s performance?

    Eric Summerer was amazing. His strong male voice was perfect, and even the female voice he conveyed was totally acceptable. He should have been the only narrator for this book. I simply cannot tell you how terrible Jennifer's voice was for Mark.


    Did Breathe with Me inspire you to do anything?

    Never finished the book. It was boring, unrealistic, and annoying. Jennifer's voice for Mark was the final nail in the coffin for me.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like this series, I recommend reading this one on your own. It will be much more enjoyable.

    "GREAT STORY!!"

    This one made me do an "ugly cry", as though I was literally living through every narrated sentence---super emotional but seriously good. I'm a sucker for childhood romances, and M&M's love story will make you melt and gush all over just like the rest of the books in this series. Totally worth a credit, start from the beginning and enjoy!

    Story
    "Didn't make it to the end"

    This story just didn't have enough to keep my attention. I ended up only listening about 1/2 way through. They were high school sweethearts, they broke up so she could go to NY and dance. They meet again at her mother's funeral and get back together. All this was done by the halfway point. I didn't see any reason to keep listening to see what would pull them apart and then back together again. I figured it would be a stupid misunderstanding. So maybe you don't go by my review since I didn't complete the book. I like Kristen Proby and enjoyed other books in the "With Me" series just not this one. Narration was just okay too but that may be the material they had to read.

    "Great addition to the series :D"

    4.5-5 stars

    This was a great addition to the series. I liked both Mark and Meredith as characters and they were sweet together. I really enjoyed seeing them get back together and work stuff out.

    Meredith is an ex-professional dancer that now owns a dance studio. She owns the studio with her BFF (a fellow dancer), Jax. Meredith lost her father and sister in an accident when she was 13 and it scarred her deeply. Meredith decided to retire from dancing and move home to open the studio when he mother got sick. Unfortunately, her mother wasn't able to recover and Meredith lost her as well.

    Mark is the brother to Luke and Samantha (from books #1 & 4) and works for a construction business owned by Isaac (book # 1.5) as a forman. He actually went to college for science but found he didn't like being in a lab. He worked in Alaska for years on fishing boats until Luke and Nat got married and started a family, then Mark decided to come home and ended up working for Isaac.

    Mark and Meredith were high school sweethearts that loved each other a lot. They had made plans for them both to move to New York upon graduation so Meredith could pursue her dance career but when a teacher made Meredith think about things, she decides that maybe she shouldn't take Mark with her after all. Meredith broke up with Mark and it broke both of their hearts. The thing is, I can see how Meredith was right to do what she did because with all the time she spent practicing and touring, she and Mark would have never had any time together and they probably would have broken up anyways and in a much worse manner. So they're apart for 10 years and see each other for the first time at her mom's funeral. Mark thinks that Meredith is with Jax (not realizing he's really just her gay BFF) so he doesn't reach out to see her again and since Meredith broke up with him all those years before, she wasn't willing to reach out (even if she wanted to).

    Thankfully, they do run in to each other at a dance recital. Bryn's daughters (see book #5) are taking classes at the dance studio and the whole Montgomery/Williams clan shows for the recital. Once Mark realizes that Meredith is single he decides he's going to win her back and never let her go again. He expresses his interest in getting to know each other again and seeing if they could possibly renew their relationship. Meredith missed Mark and is still very attracted to him so she agrees. They do pretty well together and fall back into their relationship quickly and easily since the feelings never really faded for either of them. There is a bit of conflict with Mark's worry that Meredith might go back to professional dance and leave him again. On the opposite side, Meredith has to deal with the unexpected jealousy when she's confronted with Mark's man-whorish past. Those conflicts are pretty easy to get past though. There is another conflict that's a little more of an issue for them but things work out well and the story ends up with Mark and Meredith (M & M) starting their HEA together.

    I really enjoyed this story and the characters were great. I really liked Mark and Meredith but the rest of the Montgomery/Williams clan as well. I was LMAOing at the bachelorette party...so funny! Overall, this was a great reunion story with little angst and a great cast of characters. I'd recommend this book. :-)

    * note - The story was a mixed PoV with parts from both Meredith and Mark's PoVs. There was a female narrator for Meredith's part and a male narrator for Mark's part. Both narrators did a pretty good job.
