Happy Publication Day to BREATHLESS (Texas Nights Series) | by Lex Martin!! #NewPublication #ContemporaryRomance #series #Giveaway #BookReview #GiveMeBooks #Breathless #LexMartin

Title: Breathless
A Texas Nights Series Standalone
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: February 18, 2020



I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that.

I’d call it self-preservation.

I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat to his revolving bedroom door.

My escape plan almost worked.

Except I left one thing behind.

Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it back. This time for good.


I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about everything.

Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.

She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest.

When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth.

But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living so many lies.

Book Review
How could I do anything but LOVE BREATHLESS?!  Lex Martin sure does know how to write stories that pull on your heartstrings.  From the beginning to the end I was totally invested in Jo and Logan plus the whole entire family. The book was so well written from the characters to the drama and angst to the worldbuilding and storyline.  The only thing I didn't like was when it was over! 

Lex brings in characters from the two previous books, Shameless and Restless so it's like seeing good friends or part of the family again.  But it's not imperative to read the previous books to read BREATHLESS.  It stands on its own two feet just fine. 

I loved the way that Lex interspersed the past with the present.  Sometimes in stories, going back and forth between the two makes the book choppy and cumbersome but not Breathless.  It reads smoothly as silk. And as for the worldbuilding, I'm ready to move to the Carter ranch! The descriptions of the ranch make it sound do beautiful like at night under the stars, during the evening for a horseback ride or first thing in the morning as the sun comes up.

There are secrets, history, great family members, crappy family members, best friends, worst friends, surprises, evildoers, lovers and more. Reading this book had me smiling, sad, brokenhearted, thrilled, worried, crying and with a big fat grin on my face, all several times over. And never, ever fear, there is a wonderful happy ending.  I must say that this is now one of my favorite books and authors ever!

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I received this complimentary book upon request and I'm leaving my review voluntarily.  All opinions are my own.
