    • Favorite Quote In so many ways, her life had been waiting for her Like a bottle of Two Willows Syrah, all the flavors and notes and tones locked inside until Jace had uncorked it With Jace she had the freedom to breathe, and with that freedom came unexpected richness, full and satisfying.My Review Breathe was a quick yet somewhat heavy read, as the story was laden with angst, regrets, grief, sorrow, and wasted years based on misconceptions I had a difficult time warming up to Anna, she had alway [...]

    • A very sweet and nice romance novel.Normally, I am the YA reader, but from time to time I find myself enjoying adult romance novels as well This novel was well written I liked the setting, and ut was descriped so well that I could picture Two Willows in my head perfectly.Also, I liked the characters But the novel was abit short, I would have loved to read a few flashbacks into the time of youth of Anna and Jace, the carefree ness they had, as well as a few earlier talks they had It was nice to [...]

    • I loved the hero who was sweet, tender, dark, and soulful Anna was just as good, and I liked reading about her princess like past and comparing her old self to her fierce mama warrior nature in the present I liked watching her struggle, even as I felt immense empathy for her and her situation What is it like, Alward asks us, to have everything you want in life except for the things you most crave approval and love The dialogue felt a bit flat to me at times, as though I understood what Alward wa [...]

    • A really great story from beginning to end A second chance romance about devastating loss and a returning home of the heart.

    • Another difficult book to review since I had such high expectations I enjoy second chance at romance stories and sort through the what, whys and hows in what went wrong in the relationship in the first go round Usually the background is given and the characters have had years and some maturing, especially when they began as young lovers Breathe had the potential, but unfortunately 2 3 of the book was repetitious on the characters history and didn t have enough meat for me to get attached to eith [...]

    • Breathe was amaizing It was beautiful You see Jace Willow owns Two Willows Vineyardhe has made something of himself He s proud of what he has accomplishedThe only thing he regrets is he lost the only girl her ever loved But when she shows up on his doorstep with her two children he doesn t know what to doAnna Morelli made a mistake and now is paying for itShe s a widow with two children and has run to get away from her familyShe doesn t know what to expect from Jace The only thing she can hope f [...]

    • I m a bit all over the place on how I feel about this book It s probably of a 3.5 I liked the story and it s beautifully written, but I wanted to slap these characters and tell them to wake up and smell the coffee because after all the mouthwatering descriptions of wine, coffee was in order Neither the hero, Jace, nor the Heroine, Anna could be called to stupid to live, but they were both so stubborn If you like stubborn characters and second chance love stories, you ll enjoy this one.

    • I really enjoyed this book overall I love Italian culture language and the throw in of the wine business made it even better The back story of Anna and Jace was very intriguing and catching, however I think I would have liked a little bit explanation of some things like when their friendship had turned into the secret relationship they cherished so much I would definitely reccomend this book to people who want a quick, emotional read on their hands

    • A story about second chances with the one that got away Anna and Jace were young when they lost each other, but now that time has past they are can fix that This was a very predictable read for me Not unpleasant, but just not drop everything so I can read it pleasant.

    • Very typical romance story No surprises Cute book Quick read Towards the middle of the book I could not wait for it to end.
