Book Review: Breathless With Her by Carrie Ann Ryan

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a sexy new contemporary series.

Devin Carr likes his life. He likes his job, his family, the outlook for his future. Then he meets her. Erin. As soon as he sees her, drunk and wearing a sequined dress as her world crashes down around her and she fights to put on a brave face, he knows what he’s been missing. Her.

When Erin Taborn finds her high school sweetheart and husband banging the former head cheerleader of their graduating class at their high school reunion, she tells herself she’ll be fine. She just needs to figure out what fine means. There’s only one problem. Devin. She didn’t plan on him. And for someone who thinks they have all their plans in place, that’s a problem.

One she’ll have to find an answer to if this whole friends-with-benefits thing is going to work.
If not, she’ll fail just like with everything else.

My Thoughts

Erin attends her high school reunion thinking she was on top of the world. Then, her world came crashing down when her husband cheats on her. Walking into a bar dressed in 80s gear, she drinks to take away the pain. Sitting next to her is Devin Carr, a man who dated her sister years before. Lending his shoulder, he listens and offers her his couch.

Six months later, she’s divorced, and feeling like her life is getting back on track slowly. Taking Devin up on his offer to be his date, she decides to play on their attraction.

Jaded from her marriage, she doesn’t want serious and he’s willing enough to give it to her. Affair ensues, as predictable.

I tried to get into this book, but after halfway through, I was almost ready to DNF. The character was immature, the writing was a bit amateurish to me and it didn’t provide me the want to read any more in the series. It was alright and I did enjoy the first half. It just fell flat for me.
