It's not very often I get into romance, especially erotic romances, but when I do, I managed to find the hottest, oddest and sexiest stories ever written!
The Just Breathe Trilogy Box set belongs to an Instafriend of mine. Martha Sweeney (@marthasweeneyauthor) is a wonderful woman with an IG account that's full of great pictures and support for other authors. How could I not want to read her books? Not to mention, she's got an gorgeous coloring book out- you have to check it: Bookish: Adult Coloring Book!
Okay, the Just Breathe trilogy has three books: Breathe In, Breath Out and Just Breathe. I will tackle each one with a small summary and review so you can decide for yourself if you're ready for the plunge!
Emma is an enigma! Breathe In, volume 1 was, to me, an introduction to Emma's world. It didn't quite explain why she was the way she was, but the backstory was very deep and detailed. I understood why she was strong and why she felt the need to be as supportive to others as she was, but there was something missing in her.
Her past paved way to her living by eight particular rules. Sadly, these rules slightly contradicted themselves, but people and their lives are funny that way. Because of these rules, Emma lived a promiscuous life, but when she meets Joe while helping one of her best friend's meet a guy- the game changes... to a point.
I enjoyed Breathe In, but Emma is difficult to appreciate. She's got her reasons for being distant but the rules she's set for herself are odd and the 'no touching' thing is really funny, when thinking about her way of living. And I won't even go in to how 'perfect' she seems to be! lol But all in all, I enjoyed the story and am looking forward to volume 2.

In Volume 2, Breath Out, things begin to truly change between Emma and Joe. And it's for the better!
When the two begin to take on actions of a relationship, Emma refuses to acknowledge she's changing her own rules. She's becoming another person, all from the love, patience and sheer determination Joe springs on her. She finds herself doing things she'd never imagined and she's enjoying herself.
This time, Joe isn't just a sweet guy, sitting back, waiting. He's taken to action because he already knows how he feels about her, but the fact that he's patient enough to sit back and deal with all the insanity that is Emma makes him a great guy. A bit on the foolish side too, because she is nuts. I'm still not sure how much I like Emma but the story is very engaging and I have to say, it's much better than book one.
I am on to the final book!

Oh how I truly loved the ending of this series! Every character in the series was well developed and easily enjoyable. And though Emma kept making upset with her decisions and actions, she grew on me, like a fungus! LOL I found I began to care for her and saw past her quirkiness. And Joe...
Joe was unbelievable- I don't know if there are any real Joe's in the world! The man said all the perfect words, performed perfectly and was just amazing! His love and care for Emma is what truly made the story worth reading. Every girl looks for a Joe in their lives, but there just aren't enough. I guess we'll all have to read this series and base or values on him! lol
Martha Sweeney gave an amazing series and when you have books like this, that allow you to completely immerse yourself, you walk away satisfied and eager to step into another. I'll definitely be reading more by such a talented author and I hope you enjoy her too. You can get all three of the books on Amazon for an amazing $4.99 or FREE with Kindle Unlimited.📚
