Hot and consuming, this is a New Adult romance about a wayward musician and the one girl who keeps him grounded…

At college, Rachel has a reputation for being a sarcastic flirt with a thing for ripped athletes. No one at college knows her heart was ripped to shreds by her high school boyfriend, who’d driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle. And then subsequently abandoned her. No one really knows Rachel Mattson at all, with one exception… 
Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth—especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that horrible night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is also back, groveling for her forgiveness.

Shaken by her ex’s return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Now that Kai has had a taste of Rachel, he’s willing to do anything just to have her touch him again, even hiding his true feelings. After all, she only wants a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But perhaps it had been more all along.

Between Breaths Series:
My Review of All Of You Here
My Review of Before You Break Here

My Thoughts:

I love the Between Breaths Series, by Christina Lee.  It is a wonderful, and entertaining series about three good friends in college, and their journey with falling in love.  Each story can be a read as a stand alone and focuses on a different girl's story.  Whisper To Me is the third installment in the story, and was Rachel's story.  Before reading Rachel's story, she was my least favorite of the girls.  She slept around a lot, had the largest potty mouth, and didn't seem to have any depth to her character.  I am so glad that Rachel got her story!  It was amazing, and I ended up connecting with her once I learned more about her past.

In high school Rachel tended to be quiet around guys.  She was shy, and the only people that she was comfortable being herself with were her best friend Dakota, and Dakota's older brother, Kai.  They saw a funny, sassy, spirited, and independent side to her that other people weren't exposed to.  When Rachel got a serious boyfriend, who happened to be a popular jock, she changed.  She lost herself in her relationship.  Then after being in a serious motorcycle accident, Rachel almost died, and was left with a horrible brain injury.  She had to go to rehab, and learn how to walk, and learn to do everyday tasks again.  Her boyfriend left her and she was devastated.  Dakota and Kai were by her side every day cheering her on and supporting her as she worked hard towards her recovery.  Kai fell in love with Rachel, but never told her.

Rachel was tired of people feeling sorry for her and treating her differently, so she left her small town to attend college an hour away in the city.  She changed and became the person that partied, slept around, and oozed confidence and fun.  She didn't do relationships.  Now three years later, Rachel returns home for the summer to help her mother with her business, and stays with Dakota.  She is shocked when she finds out that Kai is also back, and staying with Dakota for the summer as well.

I loved learning about Rachel's past.  It added depth and made me understand her more as a character.  I loved the strong foundation of friendship, support, humor, and good memories that Rachel shared with Kai.  These two also had strong sexual chemistry, and wanted to spend every spare moment together.  I loved the person that Rachel was when she was around Kai.  She was herself, and didn't have to put up a facade.  Kai was amazing.  His love for Rachel was strong and unconditional.  He was a gifted musician, but was a little lost in deciding what direction to take in his life.  Rachel helped make him want to be a better version of himself, and get his life on track.

My favorite parts of the book were when Kai and Rachel were together.  It was magical, and obvious that they shared a special connection.  Both of them were so worried about ruining their friendship, and thought that the other person only wanted a fling.  I wanted them to come together, take a chance, and realize how much they meant to each other.

I also loved when all the friends came down to visit for the weekend.  It was fun seeing Avery, Bennett, Ella, and Quinn.  I'm hoping that we get Dakota, and Shane's (Kai's best friend's) story next.      

My Rating:

I give Whisper to Me, by Christina Lee, 4 Magnetic, Sexy, Dirty Talkin', Resilient, and Unconditional Love Filled Stars!  Between Breaths is a very fast-paced, entertaining, addictive, and swoon-worthy, new adult series!

My Favorite Quote:

  1. You know, I really appreciate that Lee have these girls traits that we all laugh about or think is acceptable with guys (lots partying, hook ups and potty mouths)and gives them to the girls. Nice reversal! Kai and Rachel sound like an amazing couple. Thanks for the review!
