Though I enjoyed the book I found Amy quite annoying at times. She's one of those "I'm always a victim" types. It's been a while since I've read a heroine that was such a clingy, needy mess. She came across as incredibly weak. Her parents treated her like shit and she took it. Warren treated her like shit and she took it. Roman treated her like shit and she took it. Bill treated her like shit and she took it. See the pattern? The entire book was one big Amy pity party.
2.5 disappointing starsI seem to be in the minority once again. When I read the blurb on Joya Ryan's latest release, excitedly I one-clicked because a good political-based romance always grabs hold of me. I started off highly charged and thinking this was going to make my day. However, it didn't take too long before I hit some editing errors that threw me into a panic mode (simple unexplained errors are a real issue with me) and missing words in sentence after sentence are just too clearly ident [...]
Wow. I honestly didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. When I first read the synopsis, I thought it would be just a nice, easy book to read. I didn't expect too much from it. I've read plenty of other stories where a "deal" is made between the two main characters, and I always found something far-fetched about the situation. It was something that I would just disregard, because it is fiction after all. However, this is different. The scene where Roman first propositioned Amy was execu [...]
I received a copy of this book from the author, Joya Ryan, in exchange for an honest review and that is exactly what you will receive.The ReviewFirst off, I have to say…this book’s description does NOT give it any amount of justice as to what this book holds within it. Not a single bit. Had I been flipping through books looking for an interesting book to read, this one wouldn’t have piqued my interest. This actually came onto my radar due to a mutual friend(author) of Joya Ryan and I. Unt [...]
DNFLove these type of stories, but this heroine had no backbone. She already did this same "thing" with her ex-boyfriend and honestly she came off as weak. She does not stand up to Roman. While he is making this "agreement" with her, she is thinking about how attractive he is?!?! I like jerk-ish heroes, but Roman I just could not take anymore of him. I wanted banter, a strong heroine. I got nothing so I quit. This may work for you.
Not impressed, not even a bit. I get that the Governor is a "wounded soul", but honestly, he just came across as an arrogant jerkwad. Luckily, he's well hung and good at screwing, so Amy falls for him anyway. Nowhere near the character development needed, and the resolutions happen much too quickly.
First time reading this author and have to say she nailed it!! Great dialog, the characters were likeable, the relationship/romance was believable, and the storyline move. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
Politician protagonists have been my guilty pleasure since Brady Maxwell.Roman is hot and coldhe pulled me in and pushed me away.Well I was thinking of myself as Amy.Enjoyable read.Recommended to lovers of Record series by K.A. Linde
Ever since the Shattered Series I’ve been a great fan of Joya Ryan’s work. Originally an indie author, now published with Montlake Romance, Ms. Ryan just has a gift of telling a love story.In Breathe You In, naïve Amy Underwood is a struggling fish out of water having just moved to NYC for her dream job. She is actively working to secure a position on a team that will build a facility to help children battle their drug addiction. With this effort in mind, she sneaks into a posh affair where [...]
Oh my goodness! This book was heart breaking and amazing and happiness and emotional all wrapped into one wonderful collaboration of 26 letters. If I could put into words how wonderful this book was it wouldn't even be enough. It is a cross between Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James and Easy by Tammara Webber. It is now forever on my favorite's shelf and will be read over and over again comforting me until the words fade on the pages.
Am not greatly disappointed but I expected so much more from it. I'd still want to read book 2 of this series though.
Short review. Rating 2.5. *Spoilers* While I did like the romance between Amy and Roman I found to hard to completely like Amy and Roman. For Amy it was because she kept letting people walk all over her and didn't stand up for herself especially to her mom is was a role B#%* for blaming Amy for her sister's death which wasn't her fault. And for Roman it was because of his constant changing his mind about how he feels about Amy every five minutes. I get that both characters struggle to find thems [...]
Joya Ryan writes sweet novels. It's what she do. It's insta everything and the plots aren't that well developed. It's like she tries to skirt around the many conflicts that all her characters seem to have. This was no different. They aren't angst filled and take on a more simplistic approach, to the point of complete old school sappy romance novels, but always with a flair of betrayal and the requisite dark past. That's why they make for nice, breezy Sunday afternoon reads. Lucky for me, the bre [...]
My Review:Overall. 4.25Performance 4.75Story. 4.00The narrator on thiswow, she is absolutely fabulous. She was able to emote with her voice inflections so well. This is a fairly emotional book and she did an outstanding job with the voices. I loved her and this is my first audiobook that I've listened to by her. (I plan to check out what else she's narrated.)I'll be honestI have no idea why or when I picked up this audiobook. I've had it for a while and pulled it out of my tbr pile on a whim. I [...]
I was a winner of this book on . I was interested in the synopsis I read and entered to win the book. It was a great storyline, but the where some editing issues. Not enough to distract me from wanting to continue the story though.Amy Underwood crashed a political fundraiser in hopes of gaining support for the drug treatment center to works for. It would help her gain a promotion and also maybe alleviate some of the guilt she feels about her sisters death due to a drug overdose.Roman Reese is th [...]
Breathe You In by Joya Ryan, is a complicated love story that pulls you in from the first chapter and keeps you in suspense all the way through the whole book. I won this book in a giveaway and had never heard of the author. I will definitely be reading more of her books! Synopsis:For years, Amy Underwood has been wracked by guilt over her sister’s fatal overdose. With one last shot at redemption, she is determined to open a drug treatment center—even if it means her shameful secret will be [...]
I received this book from a giveaway and was very excited to see that I had won. I started reading the book at 8 PM and stayed up past midnight, despite work the next morning, to finish it.Amy Underwood is fresh from Indiana with a desire to build a drug treatment center in Arbor Hill. Ghosts from her past make her driven and desparate enough to sneak in to a political event to pitch her center in an effort to get funding. What she gets is a memorable encounter with the Governor of New York, Ro [...]
I have enjoyed every book of Ms. Ryan's that I have readis was no exception.The total heartbreak I feel for Amy is just indescribable. They way her parents totally turned against her after the heartbreaking, gut wrenching tragedy that happened to that family is wrong in so many different ways. She is better off without people like that in her life.But what a strong person she makes herself into. She is able to rise above that tragedy (for the most part) and bring something positive out of it; ve [...]
I'm so glad I took a chance on Breathe You In. When you meet Roman Reese right at the beginning, he is all-consuming and totally charming! Immediately, I got the feeling that the governor of New York has a dark side that is hidden so perfectly. He doesn't waste time pursuing Amy, and they enter into a “relationship”. He wants to be re-elected again, and Amy could be the right person to help his image. Oh, boy! So many times I just wanted Amy to back away from this deal, but Roman is such an [...]

Amy and Roman meet at a political fundraiser where Roman literally sweeps Amy off her feet. I loved how they meet. Both come from troubled pasts, neither wanting to tell their secrets. Roman wants to win another term as governor of New York and thinks that with Amy on his arm he can. Amy wants a drug rehab center built in the name of her sister. Together they come to an agreement they will pretend to date and eachone will get what they want. Of course with any romance, they will fall in love, ri [...]
To be honest, I wasn't expecting to like this book. This was a book club pick, and when I read the blurb, I got the impression that I had read this story before. I thought that it was going to be predictable and cliche, but I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. Both Amy and Roman have issues, which gave the story plenty of angst. There were enough twists in the story to keep it interesting, and I liked the push and pull of Amy and Roman's relationship. Roman, especially, had some seri [...]
Really enjoyableReally enjoyableAmy has a dark past or so she thinks. I'm not sure why she feels so responsibly, it's crazy if you ask me, but she believes she is responsible for her sister death along with her family. Meeting Roman she finally feels alive.Roman is the Governor and it's reflection time. Believing Amy is innocent and from a blue collar family he thinks she is what he needs to help keep him governor. Roman had a dark past witch leads to issues with trust. I enjoyed watching their [...]
Emotional rollercoasterEmotional rollercoasterAmy meets Roman, the governor of New York while crashing a gala in order to get support for a rehab facility. They end up sharing a moment. but when Roman finds out her motives for crashing the gala, he proposes something. She pretend to be his girlfriend until the election, and she get the funding she so desperately desires.Amy comes off as a little naive. And to me, Roman was kind of a jerk, and very distant. He ran hot and cold for me. I understan [...]
Great Book!!I really enjoyed this book. It was better than I expected. I loved Roman and Amy's story. Roman your typical alpha male but in your typical politician mannerism kind of way. Amy was stronger than she thought even though she carried a heavy heart. I loved the way Amy and Roman brought each other out of their dark worlds.This story is full of angst, drama, heartache and a lot of hot steamy moments! You also have some tender moments between Amy and Roman that will tug at your heart and [...]
Another tantalizing book by Joya Ryan. Oh man ladies and gents, I burned through this hottie in one day. I literally was 100% hooked by the first chapter. I read it on my breaks, my lunch, while I cooked dinner oh it was so incredibly well written. The plot was interesting and unusual, not something I've read before. Of course I immediately fell in love with our hero, scrumptious politician Roman Reese. And appreciated the naivete of our heroine Amy Underwood. I loved Joya's Shattered Series an [...]
Breathe You InJoya Ryan is an amazing author who grabs you from the first page and sucks you into the story. I have loved her writing since her first book.This book was one that held my attention so hard I couldn't put it down. I just knew I'd finish it last night when I went to bed, but I woke up at 3:00 a.m. still holding my kindle, glasses on, sitting straight up in the bed. I finished it then.I don't give parts of the books I read in my reviews. Just know that this book had it all: a drop de [...]
I just want to thank A Publishing for sending me this amazing book!! If you love romance, secrets, and of course a very HOT steamy guy, you are going to LOVE this book! Amy has been feeling guilty for the past 7 years over her sisters drug overdose, so she tries to get funding for a new center to help people with addiction. Upon doing so she meets the handsome Governor Reese,who is very alluring and charming. Can they keep everything strictly business or will lies and secrets tear everything apa [...]
I read it while back and decided to reread it, that's how much I LOVED this book. Joya Ryan never disappoints when it comes to her writing. This is a beautiful story about a relationship between Roman, who is the governor of New York and Amy who wants funding for a drug rehab building she wants built, both have a damaged past, both have trust issues. The characters were easy to like and relate to, it had steamy "love" scenes, and moments of heartbreak. No cliffhanger, book two is about another c [...]
For me, this story was just okay. I listened to Joya Ryan's novel about a week ago. It started out strong, but petered out towards the middle and end. As sweet as the heroine was, I found her annoying. I caught myself saying out loud whenever she spoke "blah,blah,blah." The arc of the story was predictable.The heroine struck me as a stereotypical caricature of a woman. In other words, a highly emotional, needy creature who accepts abuse without fighting back. The narrator did a good job of voici [...]
