This the third installment in the Between Breaths series. I didn't read the other two and it was just fine, they can all work as stand alone books. The characters are likable but flawed...the dialogue needs work (Rachel's potty mouth felt forced)...but the chemistry between Rachel and Kai was worth the trip. Save this for a trip to the beach.

A hot and consuming 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 star athletes. No one at school knows that she'd had her heart ripped to shreds by her high school sweetheart, who'd driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle, and then abandoned her. No one knows the real Rachel Mattson--except one person...
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 fateful night. Never mind that Rachel's ex is back, groveling for her forgiveness.
Shaken by her ex's return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Kai is willing to hide his feelings for her, just to have Rachel touch him again. After all, this is only a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But maybe it had been more all along...
