Whisper To Me (Between Breaths #3) by Christina Lee Blog Tour - #giveaway & #review

Book Blurb:

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.

My Review ...

 I knew Rachel had some layers for her larger than life personality and attitude.  I was surprised of why she is the way she is and pleased with her story and especially Kai.

You all know I am a big fan of friends to lovers.  And I don't mind the unrequited love story line but sometimes I want to beat my own head when it takes it to far that the characters come across more whiny with the 'why me or poor me' personnas.

Bottom line Rachel had a bad accident and heartbreak.  What helped her heal was the love and support of her friends and family especially Kai.  During her recovery Kai fell in love with her but was chicken shit and never said anything.  And the way Rachel was dealing with the aftermath was emotionless sex.  Well, now we have a perfect solution with Rachel needing to get her rocks off and Kai more than willing to help her out with that but once feelings get involved hearts get broken.  I loved this part of the story.
"Understand that you are essential to this world. To the laws of nature. Find your own ways, make your own peace. For it is you who has to live with yourself."
Where I wanted to throw my kindle was when they were being together but assuming, and assuming and assuming that the other does not feel the same.  Argh!  

Sometimes I just want more depth than the typical 'I like him but he doesn't like me back stuff'.  If there was more than this I would have LOVED this book but since there was unfortunately too much of this, it left me more frustrated than I wanted to be with book. ;( It had nothing to do with the writing as I am a big fan of Christina Lee but it has to do with preference of story lines is all.  For a lot who love this type of angst then they will absolutely love this book.  For the others who are tired of that type of story line than they might not love it as much. However, my favorite part of the book I have to say would be Kai even though he was chicken shit when it came to his emotions. 

All in all I do like this series and I do adore Christina Lee.  I know there are at least two more in this series and I will be definitely continuing with it.

3.5 Poor me thumbs up!
