Breathe by Sloan Parker


Lincoln McCaw lost everything — his home, his job, his partner — after he caused a fatal accident. A year later, he's drowning the guilt and despair in whiskey, but he needs to move on. His sister and her kids are counting on him. Then he meets a man who ignites a passion Lincoln thought he'd never find. Too bad one night is all they can have together. Now he needs to figure out how to turn away from the only person who makes him feel alive . . . before whoever is sending him threats decides Lincoln needs to suffer more than he already has.

Jay Miller is surrounded by grief and misery until he finally gives in to all those years of sexual fantasies about being with another guy. Realizing he's ended up in the arms of the man who caused his wife's accident, he tries to pull away. But how can he give up a friendship he needs more than anything — a friendship and a love that could save him? He may not have time to make the choice before someone else destroys it all.

Wow, what an emotional, heartfelt book! So much angst all throughout, and I loved it! The characters are so easy to connect with; you can almost feel what they are going through. It kept my attention from beginning to end; I just couldn’t put it down.

Lincoln McCaw is lost, broken, almost a shell of the man he once was. One mistake can change the course of one's life in the blink of an eye … and this is what happens to Lincoln after he causes an accident that leaves a family grieving. After spending six months in the county jail, Lincoln has returned home to help take care of his sister and her kids. But who will help him? How can he let go of the guilt, despair, and aching sadness that has engulfed him?

Jay Miller can’t take it anymore; he is sick and tired of feeling lost, broken, and most of all tired of grieving over his wife that was killed in a tragic car accident. One night after he talks himself into it, he attempts to give into his desires to be with a man, only to realize that man is Lincoln McCaw … the one who caused his wife’s death. Yet it only takes one look at Lincoln and Jay feels like it’s looking into a mirror. Can they both help each other with all the emotions flying around? Not to mention, figure out who is leaving threatening letters to Lincoln, especially when one letter goes too far, putting Lincoln’s niece in danger?

Again, I say wow!! I swear there were moments I couldn’t breathe during certain scenes. The on-and-off again between Lincoln and Jay was very emotional, and real. Tissue box was very close! The grieving families were very raw and strong, making you appreciate every moment. Love, love this book, truly excellent!

I give this 5 stars, Highly recommended!
