Title: Breathe Again (Breathe #2)
Author: Rachel Brookes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: March 11, 2014
For Savannah Rae, the thought of living in her picture-perfect world was almost too much to comprehend. With her dream job, a family she could finally call her own, and the beginnings of the best chapter of her life, she still couldn't shake the unnerving feeling that it was all too good to be true.
The thought of a life without Savannah was incomprehensible to Tate Connors. Never in his wildest dreams did he think he would find his girl in the form of a sassy, stubborn, beautiful Australian. Finally he had the girl and life he so desperately wanted, but he still couldn't ignore the fear that it would crash around him. When Tate’s past becomes his present and Savannah’s present becomes her past, the possibility of a future together collides head-on with reality. In her darkest days, the words Just Breathe provided a peaceful comfort to Savannah from the heavens above. Now as she and Tate go down the path of new beginnings, brutal endings, and the constant craving of a happily ever after, they are anxious to learn how to Breathe Again.

My Review
Fantastic conclusion to Savannah and Tate's story! I'm not even sure where to start. So many things happened in this book. To say I wanted to knock some sense into these two is a bit of an understatement! I say this because I love them though.  I wanted everything to be perfect for these two so much that anytime there was lack of communication I felt like I was there with them. Just wanting them to be quiet for just one second. Poor Tanzi and Jack, having to put up with these two stubburn people. :) 
Anyways- I think I got a little off topic :) Breathe Again picks up where Breathless left us, well two months after to be exact. Tate and Savannah's relationship is still strained from everything that happened in New York. My heart ached for both Tate and Savannah. This book was a rollercoaster of emotions for me! These two just couldn't seem to catch a break. God love Tate, his cockiness and his insecurities. and then  Sav with her stubburness. The love these two have for each other is so fierce that it is almost as if they are terrified of it and in order to protect their hearts they end up behaving pretty irrational. Now I say this and it may sound like a rant BUT it isn't. I just became so wrapped up in this story that I was living it with them. They became my best friends, so I wanted them to clear everything up and put it all on the table. To stop unnecesarrily hurting. 

The thing that I loved the most about this book? Seeing Savannah and Tate grow. Not together but individually. They grew up. I have to say Rachel Brookes knows how to wreck havoc on your emotions though. Just when I thought things were turning around I hit Part Two. Then she yanked the rug out from under me! So many things happen that I feel like if these two would have just opened up to each other, they could have been avoided. But we have all been there before. We have all been insecure at some point in our lives. In those insecure moments we lose all rational thinking. The things we think and do during those times, are the same things we laugh about later..maybe. Well, Savannah and Tate were no exception when it came to irritational anger and thinking. As much as an up and down, side to side, hell even round and round stuff that went on through this story we are reminded that life is tough, sometimes the rough times are just there so when the times comes we are able to recognize the great times. I think everything that happened in their story no matter how painful was necessary to make them who they are. What they can be. This ending could not have been more fitting.  I am going to miss this group: Tate, Savannah,Tanzi,Jake and even a few other surprise ones! This story is titled so properly because sometimes you need to be reminded to Breathe Again.

As a standoff of epic proportions began between Chelsea and me. My hackles rose, and I knew I would never back down from her. I wasn’t a revengeful person, but as soon as someone starts hurting the people I care about and throwing around half-arsed accusations, they will see the wrath of Savannah. This could be the very reason I chose to have limited female friends. It was easier than having to deal with the bullshit games girls were notorious for starting, and clearly this was why I never hid my intentions when it came to men in the past. Be clear as day and no feelings came to the surface. I felt Mr. Davenport sigh beside me and I swallowed hard. Professional, Savannah. For him. I still didn’t back down as I spoke. “So I am assuming the—” “Um, excuse me? I was told that I needed to be here.” Our heads snapped to the door opening slowly, and I couldn’t believe who I was looking at, could this day get any weirder? Blake freaking Ryan had just walked through the door looking all rock star-ish. This was the first time we had seen each other since he had left New York for London. His eyes widened to the size of saucers as he took everything in. Dressed head to toe in black, he was wearing a shirt that sat snug against his body, and his tattoos were glistening under the boardroom lights. He was born to be a rock star. His eyes bounced between Tate and me and dropped to my hand gripped tightly in Tate’s and a smile tugged at his lips. Tate’s body stiffened against mine and his hand squeezed mine to the point of hurt like he was making his claim on me. “Stop it,” I hissed and shot him a pleading look. “Sorry, just habit,” he whispered then peppered my jaw with a kiss. “Thanks for coming in, Blake.” Mr. Davenport shuffled papers on the large conference table and looked towards Blake, holding out a pen and what looked to be a contract. “So you have been booked for the shoot next week and we are now just finalizing details. Savannah will be running the shoot on behalf of Beautify and Chelsea will be the female model for the campaign. If you can just sign here, we are good to go.” Blake shook his head and shot a disgusted look at Chelsea. “Are you serious? I can’t work with her.” “See? I told you, Savannah. Even Blake doesn’t want to work with you in your pathetic little fairytale world you are supposedly living in,” Chelsea spat before she threw her straw-looking hair over her shoulder and strutted towards Blake. I watched Blake closely; the look sweeping over his face was priceless. “I wasn’t talking about Savannah, you idiot. I cannot work with you, Chelsea. I tend to not want to associate with fucked-up, conniving bitches.” I couldn’t hide the smile of victory tugging on my lips. Blake Ryan, you genius. The look of utter devastation Chelsea was wearing made me feel like a million bucks. I still had no clue of the history that Chelsea and Blake shared. “Well isn’t this going to be a fun shoot,” Mr. Davenport mumbled under his breath.
