Release Day Review! Every Breath by C.J. Burright

Every Breath (Music, Love and Other Miseries #3) by C.J. Burright 
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: February 25, 2020
Publisher: Totally Bound Publishing

She wants the full fairy tale. He’s no prince offering a happily ever after. True love may have met its match this time.

True love… Happily ever after… The full meal-deal fairy tale… Glamour girl Gia Hellman almost had it all until death stole the love of her life. Two years and a string of dead-end hook-ups later, she’s through fooling around. Love will be hers again, but sexy, one-night-only lawyer Ian O’Connor doesn’t fit into the equation. No matter how charming or tempting, he’s neither knight nor prince, and she’s done kissing frogs.

Prestige… Power… A pristine reputation… Ian O’Connor allows nothing to derail his goal of becoming the next partner in the most distinguished firm in town, not even Gia, the curvy vixen in sparkles and pink stilettos who haunts his fantasies. With a past full of long-buried secrets, he never breaks his rule of only one night with any woman. But when the case to propel Ian to the top requires working with Gia, and a slip-up results in a fake engagement, keeping his distance may be the trial of his life.

As the passion between them builds and rules break one by one, Ian must decide between protecting a secret that could destroy him or risking it all for Gia’s dream of happily ever after. If only Ian believed in fairy-tale endings…

Reader advisory: This book contains scenes of physical assault, kidnap, attempted murder and references to parental abuse and stillbirth as a consequence of domestic violence.

Every Breath is the third book in the Music, Love and Other Miseries series by C.J. Burright. This is the rest of Gia and Ian's story. If you haven't read Every Kiss yet, you really need to, so you can get the full feel for these two. They're a lot of fun. I love stories where circumstances have put the characters in situations like this were they have to pretend to be more than friends.. in this case, they are engaged. Gia has come a long way since I last saw her. She was just starting to come back to life after losing the man she loved. Now, she's truly ready to move on. Just, not with Ian. Famous last words, right? ;-) Watching these two dance around their emotions and each other was highly entertaining. It's hard to know who was in more denial over their feelings for each other, but it was so much fun watching them figure it out.

The ARC of Every Breath by C.J. Burright was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
