She is love advice in a coffee shack, he's protection in a biker bar. When her past meets his present it's a killer cocktail that might get them shot, stabbed or otherwise dead.
TORI BALDWIN spends all her time traveling the states, running a mobile Coffee Shack and handing out love advice with every cup. She’s staked her rig in the parking lot of Cactus Cove—a local biker bar by all appearances— and plans to stay put for three months. Just long enough to make some money, without making any friends, before she moves to her next destination as she tries to stay ahead of a painful past.
RAIN BROOKSHIRE is the leader of the Bantorus motorcycle club, and owner of the Cactus Cove in the small town of Pitnam, Washington. He wants the Lagsturns, a rival-bad-news motorcycle club, to leave town before they infect his town with trouble. He doesn’t trust them after his ex-girlfriend hooked up with Sanchez, the Lagsturns’ leader, and screwed him over.
With bullets flying and the Lagsturns putting on the pressure, the only way to keep Tori safe—since she refuses to leave town—is for Rain to claim her as his woman. She has no idea that Rain’s played his hand for all to see in the biker world. It doesn't help that Tori exhibits the three ideal classifications of his ideal woman—Classy, Sexy, and a total Goof— and he can't help but posture and lay down the law. But, when it appears Tori’s life is in danger, and the Lagsturns are innocent, he isn’t going to let the law stop him from keeping his woman safe.
Tori has been on the run from her personal demons for years when she ends up parking her mobile coffee wagon on Rain’s parking lot. At the same time, a rival biker gang shows up in the town Rain owns most of, setting off turf wars. For some reason, Tori seems to be at the center of this storm, although there is no reason for her to be involved in any way. Rain ends up putting her under his protection, which rubs her the wrong way. All she wants is to sell coffee, dispense her down home advice about love and relationships, and then move on to another town in a couple of months.
However, she soon learns being Rain’s woman means he won’t let her out of his sight until he figures out who is threatening her and why. He worms his way into her walled off psyche to find out why she always runs away from situations, people, and commitments. He is determined not to lose her.
I loved Rain and his ability to see into Tori’s mind, and give her the stability she lacks. I loved Tori’s quirky character along with her ability to help people having relationship problems, even though she has little experience herself.
Breathing His Air is a great love story, with enough mystery and twists to keep you reading well into the night.
