Ryan Willis has spent years in the protection business, a job that requires constant vigilance and quick thinking. His only chance to truly relax is at his secluded cabin in a small town where there are never any surprises. So when Ryan returns after an assignment and encounters a beautiful stranger, he isn't only surprised, he's also instantly intrigued.
Hannah Bright is a breath of fresh air, and Ryan is soon completely consumed, unable to stop from falling for her. As the two grow closer, his instinct tells him something is amiss. Yet nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he starts digging into her past.
Hannah spends her days painting, running her arts and crafts store...and hiding too many secrets. It's why she won't let the ruggedly handsome bodyguard get too close. But their chemistry is undeniable, and Hannah quickly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. He is peace personified, a balm to her battered soul. Yet the gorgeous, captivating man who has swept Hannah off her feet doesn't even know who she really is. And the moment he finds out, both their lives are at risk

Leave Me Breathless, a steamy and suspenseful standalone romance, features British alpha-hero, Ryan Willis, a former member of MI5 and current protection agent, and the quirky, messy artist with secrets in her eyes, Hannah Bright. Malpas created an alluring hero in the ruggedly handsome, single father. Ryan was exactly the hero that Hannah, a woman hiding in plain sight, needed. Commanding and, at times, menacing, Ryan was also gentle and patient, and as Jodi Ellen peeled his layers back, I was as smitten as Hannah was with him. Hannah has survived a brutal and painful past, and while she’s alive, she isn’t really living. She lives in the shadows, attempting to blend in without ever putting down roots as she moves from place to place. She’s tired, lonely and easily spooked, but for the first time in longer than she can remember, Ryan gives her hope. The question is will he be enough for her to take on her demons, to let him all the way in and to trust? There are secrets in both of their pasts, and Malpas uses them by bringing them into the light through an exciting suspense plot in this intense and sexy romance.
Riveting, thrilling, steamy and romantic, Leave Me Breathless was exactly the type of passionate, emotional and gripping love story that I expect from Jodi Ellen Malpas. I was at the edge of my seat, tapping my Kindle furiously, as I devoured this book—I simply did not want to put it down. Five smooches from me for Leave Me Breathless by Jodi Ellen Malpas!
Ryan meets Hannah Bright and is intrigued by her. She is different and but she has sad eyes. She has left behind a very bad relationship. She is also skittish and jumpy at times. He knows that if he presses her for information she could turn her back on him. They grow much closer and Ryan falls in love with her but what is she hiding? Ryan treads lightly but decides to use his contacts and see if he learns anything. There were times I held my breath as I was reading wondering what is going to happen next. This is very deserving of all five stars and then some.

I did like the main characters Hannah and Ryan - his daughter Alex, but like so many books read recently, within a matter of days they are in love the daughter has accepted her and he is asking her to move in... I mean seriously?? It seems the whole book including the HEA is set over a period of 2 weeks... with all the drama within this time it would test the strongest of relationships.
It was an ok read, but I did find myself walking a way a few times, where as normally with a JEM book I can’t put them down. Sorry for me it’s not one I will re-read, and too many similarities to another book.
One other criticism, if one of the things about the book was the heart shaped yellow diamond - why would you then put a round yellow diamond on the front cover? Details, it’s all in the details.
Ryan has had enough of being in the personal security agency ex MI5 agent just wants a quiet life and time with the person he love most his daughter Alex (aka Cabbage).
After he finishes his final job with Jake ( yes the sexy protector) he decides it's time to head home to the Hamptons.
What he didn't bargain on was running a sexy women off her bike and meeting the sassy and sexy Hannah Bright.
The sparks ignite from the start but all is not what it seems Hannah she has a lot of secrets to hide.
This intrigues Ryan even more does he push Hannah for the truth or just go with his heart because he has never felt like this before.
She find's herself falling hard for Ryan but can she tell him her secret will it keep her safe, she has a great relationship with his daughter Alex so that makes Ryan fall for her even harder.
Alex is hilarious some of the scenes will have you crying with laughter big time especially with her mother Darcy.
As always a lot of twist and believe me you get them 10 folds in this book so many clues a long the way but will you piece them together read it to find out I dare you.
Ryan the hero had retired from his MI5 job ten years previously and now is ultimately ready to leave the protection role he had undertaken since and live in his cabin.
He and Hannah met one dark night when he accidentally knocked her off her bike. At the time she refused his help but as he got to know her further he sensed she had underlying issues she surpassed and was unprepared to share.
Then Hannah finds out that Ryan has a ten year old daughter he is devoted to. But who is the mother?
Well, this book is a MUST read. The minor characters in the story also enhanced and add flavour to the success of this author. Read on...
