Daniel Porter has come home. He also grew up in Strawberry Valley; he on the other hand became popular in high school, the typical Jock. After high school he joined the fight to protect our country and when he came home, like so many others, has some ghosts to battle.
When Dorothea and Daniel meet up, things get interesting. The old high school crush (on Dorothea’s side) comes back and Daniel gets a surprise visit to his room, Dorothea in nothing but a raincoat. Only things don’t go as planned.
This story brings the feels right out of you. A page turner for sure!
I highly recommend this book and the other books of the series!!
Daniel Porter is sort of a home town hero. He was a good boy that went off to be a hero in the Army. He came home to take care of his Dad and start a business with him Brothers in Arms.
Daniel wasn't aware of Dorthea's crush until she propositioned him and he turned her down. He saw the pain and was determined to learn more about her and why it hurt.
During his chase, he learned more about her, which caused him to fall in love with her. But then his fears kicked in. PTSD is a factor in this story.
Thankfully it ended with a Happily Ever After.
Ms. Showalter’s recently released, Can’t Hardly Breathe, is the perfect example! The story of Dorothea Mathis and Daniel Porter, high school acquaintances who rediscover one another in adulthood. Their road to love is not an easy one: Dorothea at times struggling with extreme low self-esteem and self-worth, Daniel battling PTSD from his time overseas, protecting his country. They have to fight their tendency to withdraw from life to truly understand love.
While Jessie Kay Dillion from book three of the Original Heartbreaker series, The Harder You Fall, is my spirit character, Dorothea Mathis IS me. Her need to break free from her feelings of never being enough and the consistently second place holder in the lives of her friends and family are understandable and relatable. I'm envious, yes, envious, of her growth as she learns to love herself for who she is, flaws and all.
While Can’t Hardly Breathe is the fourth book in the series, it can be read as a true standalone.
