"I wouldn't want anything to happen to you." -Shannyn Schroeder, Catch Your Breath
Jimmy O'Malley is trying to work his way up the latter at the local PD but when his case brings him in contact with his best friend's little sister, the one that he's been trying to ignore since they were teens. But Moira is a reporter who is in the social scene he needs to be accepted by. But when Moira sticks her nose farther into his case, will these two go head to head or will everything work out? Find the official description on Goodreads.
Catch Your Breath was an interesting read. I enjoyed the humorous back and forth of the characters as well as the family interaction. Both lent a fun spin to the book. I also loved the best friend's sister and the best friend getting together, especially because they had an interest in each other from when they were young. Call me anything but I love the couples that have a lot of background. I love when they've known each other forever and finally get together. It just seems to work out so well and the fact that they have a past makes things more interesting because they can skip over all the getting to know you bit.
Then there was Moira. She's lively, fun and invigorating. She helps to grab the reader's attention, and draw them in. I found myself reading just to see what Moira was going to do or say. It was amusing and she kept things light.
Then there were some of the opinions that the characters had. For example, Moira mentions that Escorts are viewed as bad or terrible people when the men who hired them are seen as okay. It's an interesting opinion and I liked when the characters would go back and forth about it. It was different and engaging.
Catch Your Breath is being released on July 3rd. Be sure to check it out! Oh! And I almost forgot! This book is part of the O'Leary series but can be read as a standalone!
