Is love in the cards?”
Since birth, Lexie Berry has had nothing but bad luck. Orphaned at an early age, she had a rough childhood and a boyfriend who was murdered. Now the beautiful, stylish Lexie is determined to change her luck and her life. But first she s got to make good on a promise: to pick up Ty Walker from prison. One look at the gorgeous ex-convict and Lexie knows she’s in trouble and already thinking about taking a walk on the wild side.
For five years, Ty was imprisoned for a crime he didn’t t commit. Now he wants revenge on the people who framed him. Yet when the high-stakes poker player sees the leggy Lexie, he suddenly has other desires on his mind. Realizing that Ty is innocent, Lexie tries to stop his plan for vengeance and help him become a better man. But as Ty battles his inner demons, dirty cops and criminals plot to take him out. Can he and Lexie find a way to escape the past?”
“Never had a light in my life, never, not once. I lived wild but I didn’t burn bright until you shined your light on me.”
Ding Ding Ding!! We have a winner!! I have just listened to my favourite book in KA’s Colorado Mountain series and found my favourite Mountain man. I was a close call, as I do love Tate Jackson but Tyrell “Ty” Walker now in first place.
Ty Walker is hot with all the qualities that make a great alpha. From his description, I knew he was my type of man I even spent many happy hours Googling hot mixed race men. 😉 Lexie is a kick-ass, sassy, independent and I loved her attitude. Loved all that she did for Ty. Team Walker all the way they were perfect together and the chemistry between was passionate and off the charts.
“I love you and I have never, not once said those words to any breathing soul so you gotta know what that means”
I am not going to say much about the storyline except it was heartwarming, exciting and action packed. It will make you laugh, cry, swoon, get pissed; get anxious, and want to slap a few people. It was easy to listen to, beautifully written, entertaining and seriously hot. The dialogue was funny but also moving, and intense at times. You can help but feel for Ty after all that he has had to endure.
Each of KA books are addictive, and this one was no different I loved every second of this one. The story hooked me in from the first word spoken by the narrator Emma Taylor and kept me there until the very end. This book was also a great example of something else that KA does really well when it come to her characters. I love how they are ethnically diverse you get a real mix of people that makes the story more genuine. Seeing some of my favourite characters from the rest of the series make an appearance always bring a smile to my face as do some of the new ones.
I highly recommend that you pick up this series now or any Kristen Ashley books because KA is a fantastic storyteller. Now I’m off to download the audio version of Breathe and get my next mountain fix with Chace Keaton. I already know that I’m going to like him, but I don’t think he will beat Ty Walker.
“Lady Luck finally saw fit to shine her light on me but life taught me to share. Welcome to the light”
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!).
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
