AUTHOR'S NOTE: I have been with my wife now for over 45 years. She is the most beautiful, smartest, talented person that I know. And, yet, I feel that I have not spent enough time showing her how great I think she is. Jasmine Haynes' book has made me more aware of letting my wife know what I feel. For that, I say a personal "Thank you."
So there. Now, along comes book 1 of a romance series featuring the Maverick Billionaires. Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully (aka Jasmine Haynes) have collaborated for the 1st time to bring us a series about 5 mid-30s men who have been friends since grade school. They mostly came from poor, rough childhoods and have made themselves into...well...billionaires. This 1st book is about Will Franconi, who has become rich by selling luxury goods for luxury prices. Almost by chance, Will meets Jeremy Newman, an 18-year old boy who had a very serious car accident when he was 7 and has never matured mentally past that age. And then there's Jeremy's older sister, Harper, who, in her late 20's, has already been taking care of Jeremy on her own for 6 years, since their parents were tragically killed in an accident.
You know, I've said many times that it's okay with me that we know up front the girl will get the guy, and vice versa. But even knowing that, I still appreciate a book that keeps me guessing, at least a little bit. And this book absolutely does that.
I really have a lot to say about Breathless in Love, but I don't want to lose you 1/2 or 2/3 of the way through. So I will try to be concise (yeah, right) with my analysis. Let me start by saying I just loved this book. I loved all of the relationships: Will with Jeremy, Will with Harper, Harper with Jeremy, Will with his 4 Maverick buddies, Will with his mom, Susan. Every connection felt real to me, and I truly connected with the 3 main characters. Maybe a little too much, if you catch my tear-soaked drift.
Speaking of crying, wow, did I cry a lot. There were the obvious tearfests - when Will treated Jeremy like a brother; when will did NOT treat Harper like a sister; when Harper and Jeremy were together. But here's the thing: There were a bunch of very poignant moments that were not just about the main characters. There were tons of scenes when Will showed kindness to people far below him on the food chain. There's one time in particular in a porcelain factory in London between Will and 5 factory workers that was one of the highlights of the entire book for me. Oh, yeah, I cried.
But this leads me to the most important message that I got out of this book. There's a reason I posted a quote from an earlier review. Just like I learned a valuable lesson from Past Midnight, so did I learn a valuable lesson from Breathless in Love: Just be nice to people. I try to do that, whether I'm with friends or as a customer in a retail situation. But you know what? I (and all of us) can do better. Treat everybody with the same respect that you expect from them. Money and status don't make one person better than the other. In fact, I just saw this on Facebook the other day (and had to share it) - Be the person your dog thinks you are. Does that sum it up or what? So, Bella and Jennifer, thank you for teaching me that lesson.
I'm going to stop here - for now (evidently I just couldn't be concise enough!). But I will be doing part 2 of this post in the next few days. Don't worry, it will be shorter. But I still have more to say. And you don't want to stifle my creative literary juices, do you? (Do you? It's not a rhetorical question.) Stay tuned.
First ladies it was an honor and a privilege to read the gift of the ARC of this book. Yes to me it was a gift, a stupendous, enjoyable, gift.
Next, if for the fact that Will is now taken, and I was not already married, he would be the perfect book boyfriend! I do not poach.
I love this story so, so much! I absolutely adore all of these characters. The authors do a stupendous job defining them, making them human, with all of the intrinsic qualities of being real. I love the story of Harper and Jeremy in itself. The love and the way the authors write about responsibility that Harper feels towards her brother Jeremy is so beyond beautiful. You can see her struggling and worrying about her brother and if is she doing things right for him? Watching Jeremy grow throughout the book it is phenomenal. Add Will to the mixture and his entire life journey and all of its difficulties and pleasures. He feels he is not good enough for Harper because of a wicked past, but thankfully does not ignore what he feels for her and Jeremy.
The story begins because Jeremy loves, loves, loves cars! The same way Will does. Will has a car collection that would make a car lover weep. Jeremy writes a letter to Will requesting to see his collection. After reading the letter, Will really wants to meet the youngster that wrote such a wonderful letter, so agrees. He is surprised and intrigued when he meets Jeremy. Then, he sees Harper….wow!
You can see the respect, and friendship and eventually the love that grows in Will for both Harper and Jeremy, and they for him. I am not going to write any more about the story. You really need to read it. It will take you on an emotional roller coaster with an mind-blowing, awe-inspiring HEA.
Bella and Jennifer do a phenomenal job writing this book. All of the emotions they make you feel while reading I cannot describe. This is such a wonderful and beautiful story. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. It cannot come soon enough for me, or probably anyone else who read this book!
Thank you for reading my review.
