New Release Giveaway & Review: Breathless by Lex Martin

Breathless by Lex Martin releases today and I am here to recommend this adult romance standalone series! I know what you’re thinking … that I really don’t read a lot of adult romances, so how can I have an opinion. Well first off, I do read a few adult books a year, but yes, I primarily read YA. Secondly, I have been a long-time fan of Lex’s books, I discovered her new adult college sports romance series in 2014, and I have read all of her releases, so yes I am a fan, so check out my review of Breathless below!

Thank you to the publicist, Give Me Books Promotions, for the advance copy of Breathless, to participate in this release blitz, which in no way influences my thoughts below.

The boy next door has always made her breathless.

Joey… I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that. I’d call it self-preservation.

I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat to his revolving bedroom door.

My escape plan almost worked. Except I left one thing behind.

Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it back. This time for good.

Logan…I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about everything. Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.

She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest.

When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth. But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living so many lies.

Breathless is only $2.99 for a limited time!


Breathless is the third book in the standalone series, Texas Nights. A standalone series means you can read any one of the books in any order, but I highly suggest starting with book one, Reckless, because it is just damn good! Each book focuses on a different couple although you will met each character in each book, so please check out book two, Shameless, as well!

Breathless is just what you will feel from the sweltering Texas heat and the steamy romance you will read! Definitely a Lex Martin book, full of desire, emotions, longing, snarky playfulness, and serious heat! Lex Martin is an auto-buy author for me, and I have been reading her romance books since 2014. She can always guarantee a fun and sexy read!

Set during Tori and Ethan’s wedding, Tori’s maid of honor and Ethan’s little brother, Logan’s best friend are one and the same person, Joey. But Joey left town because she has a secret, she’s in love with her best friend, and now she knows that she has to tell Logan how she feels no matter what. She started a new adventure back in Florida, but everyone is trying to get her to return to Texas.

We journey with the characters as they spend time together, meanwhile we are learning more about both Logan and Joey, while getting prepared for the wedding including a weekend at the beach for the bridal party to celebrate and hang out together. During which time you will scream at the characters to just talk to each other…because you are both clearly destined for each other. I can’t imagine friends to lovers being an easy trope to conquer because in this case there is so much history of protection and grief and sorrow for one another.

Without giving too much away, I can tell you that you’ll feel emotional, and you’ll feel ecstatic when things finally go their way! I loved the wedding setting which brought in additional fun and drama. I highly recommend Breathless, and all of the Texas Nights series, to those who enjoy a well-crafted, emotional and sexy story, that makes you earn the ending!
