Just Breathe #1
Strangers in reality, inseparable in dreams…
After years of suffocating under her boss’s scrutiny, whale biologist Zoe Morgan finally lands a job as director of a tagging project in Hervey Bay, Australia. Success Down Under all but guarantees her the promotion of a lifetime, and Zoe won’t let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. Not the whale voices she suddenly hears in her head, not the ex who won’t take no for an answer, and especially not the gorgeous figment of her imagination who keeps saving her from the fiery hell of her dreams.
Gavin Cassidy hasn’t been called to help a human Wyldling in over a year, which is fine by him. Still blaming himself for the death of his partner, he keeps the guilt at bay by indulging in every excess his rock star persona affords. That is, until he’s summoned to protect Zoe from hungry Fyre Elementals and learns his new charge is the key to restoring order in the dying Dreaming. He never expects to fall for the feisty Dr. Morgan…nor does he realize he may have to sacrifice the woman he loves to save an entire country.
Something strange happens to Zoe Morgan. After a dream in which she imagines a beautiful stranger rescuing her, she believes that a whale named Lily is calling for her help. She heads to Australia, hoping to find Lily. Gavin Cassidy, the beautiful stranger, is a Sentinel. Sentinels are protectors of the Dreaming, a place where Wydlings(humans) dream. They possess equal parts of each elemental power: Earth, Aire, Fyre and Waeter(no I’m not misspelling them, that’s the way it is LOL.) The Fyre elementals have found a way into the Dreaming and have been stealing the Wyldlings fire. Fyres are able to steal fire by frightening the dreaming Wyldlings.
The story switches between the Dreaming and Realis(reality.) Zoe thinks that the Dreaming is just her subconscious trying to sort through her unresolved issues. She meets with Perfect(her name for Gavin) in the Dreaming. Zoe is Gavin’s muse and is able to give him something that he has been missing. He knows that he cannot tell her that he exists in Realis, for she may already be in danger from their meetings. She doesn’t realize is that she has a bigger part to play in order to save the Dreaming from the Fyres.
Will Zoe find the closure she is looking for with Lily?
Will Gavin live up to his responsibilities as a Sentinel?
Okay, you have an insanely hot rock star with tattoos, a lip ring and perfect, just rolled out of bed, hair. Then you have some smokin’ hot Fyre elementals and not to mention whales. Where can you go wrong?!? This book was sexy, spunky and all around AWESOME!! I wanna make out with it and yell at it at the same time! This was only my second time reading about powers involving the elements and let me tell you, it was the better of the two.
Kendall created a spectacular paranormal experience with this book. This book concentrates more on the paranormal, but there is a great amount of romance….hot STEAMY romance!! Holy cow, you will need to fan yourself! I need to take a second to shine some light on a character that deserves some praise. Adriene is Zoe’s best friend and crew mate. I would say she’s the comic relief of the story. I hope Kendall doesn’t kill me for putting this quote, but it made my day. “Did you see him looking at you? Like he wanted to devour you? That boy is hungry, and you’re a fuck sandwich with a side of chips.” ~Adriene
Kendall also donates the proceeds of her book sales to programs that educate people about whales and the challenges they face. I cannot being to tell you how awesome that is!
