R E V I E W ➠ Leave Me Breathless by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Ryan Willis has spent years in the protection business, a job that requires constant vigilance and quick thinking. His only chance to truly relax is at his secluded cabin in a small town where there are never any surprises. So when Ryan returns after an assignment and encounters a beautiful stranger, he isn’t only surprised, he’s also instantly intrigued.
Hannah Bright is a breath of fresh air, and Ryan is soon completely consumed, unable to stop from falling for her. As the two grow closer, his instinct tells him something is amiss. Yet nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he starts digging into her past.
Hannah spends her days painting, running her arts and crafts store…and hiding too many secrets. It’s why she won’t let the ruggedly handsome bodyguard get too close. But their chemistry is undeniable, and Hannah quickly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. He is peace personified, a balm to her battered soul. Yet the gorgeous, captivating man who has swept Hannah off her feet doesn’t even know who she really is. And the moment he finds out, both their lives are at risk.
RELEASE DATE: November 5, 2019
The second our tongue touch, my upside-down world starts to spin, the rain pelting down on us, the thunder rumbling, and the lightning cracking, all drowned out by the sweet feeling of acquiescence.-Ryan
Not my first read by author and you can safely assume she is one of my top 5 author’s ever!! I have read every single of her books so far & I can’t express enough of how much THIS ONE HIT ALL THE RIGHT SPOTS! I haven’t had this much fun and excitement reading a book where I had to put it down to either laugh or place a hand over my heart because it hurts! p.s. you get a little glimpse in the life of JAKE SHARP! *you’re welcome and now let me disappoint you a little and say NO EPILOGUE! *dramatically saying NOOOOOO*
Where do I start with this? Aside from the fact that I never wanted it to end? Little story then Ryan is a partner with Jake Sharp (remember him, ooh yeah) so aside from being partners they are also best friends. We get a little of him in The Protector. So, the fact that he got a story I SCREAMED at that alone, this was very different from Jake’s story and the best on it’s own. Really HAPPY and GLAD that Ryan got his own, except I’m not crying until we get another book or an EPILOGUE to satisfy my hunger for these two!!
Ryan was getting restless, he was missing something. So he made a choice he though was best…until he rolls into town and technically runs a woman over. Yep, straight up runs her off the street (poor Hannah was on her bike) a bike she very much loved. When Hannah first spots Ryan it’s like nothing else existed, literally because she was so tongue tied and extra clumsy that she runs off. That left Ryan in a who is she? what just happened? type of state. Their first meet is epic! Their little world soon kept building, missed almost kisses later, the first kiss was breathtaking! Gah, the SWOON is almost unbearable but you get swept up in the description it will play out in your head like a movie!! I am still swooning over that. Single-Dad, Secret Agent/Bodyguard and Lumberjack sexy as sin Ryan, doesn’t know what hits him in the form of Hannah. She is nothing like anyone to him and he finds himself so easy to be with her. It’s fun, beautiful, sexy and spunky…their love may have come form the left field but with every hit it just got better and better. The LIE AND SECRET in this will drive you nuts, make you want to read faster to find out, not before you speculate every scenario possible. *Note that you will INSTANTLY fall in love with Ryan’s daughter Alex a.k.a Stinky Cabbage, for a 10 year old she is smart and well over her age, entertaining to the core, funny and super sweet! Really really fell in love with her from the start.
Truly and honestly I can say that (Jodi please don’t kill me) but I am TEAM RYAN WILLIS now (SORRY JAKE) but Ryan stole my heart. Couldn’t get enough of this story, the characters, plot everything and I hope in the future we get a little more of these two *hint hint*
