Breathless in Love by Bella Andre & Jennifer Skully Book Summary

"An incredible beginning to a series that will pull at your heart strings! A true joy to read." ~ 5 stars

Meet the Maverick Billionaires―sexy, self-made men from the wrong side of town who survived hell together and now have everything they ever wanted. But when each Maverick falls head-over-heels for an incredible woman he never saw coming, he will soon find that true love is the only thing he ever really needed... An exciting and emotional contemporary romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully! 

Will Franconi has a dark past that he's kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he's now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something’s missing. He doesn't quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him...if only he could ever be worthy of her love. 

When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She's learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she's guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she's vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again. 

Still, sometimes Harper can't help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who's wild and free...especially when Will's kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he's so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He's kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible?

Breathless in Love (Bella Andre & Jennifer Skully) Book Reviews

Couldn’t put it down!I had this book for a while but hadn’t read it. And now I’m lamenting the time I lost !! Loved loved loved Will and Harper. And the bond between Jeremy and Will. This was a great introduction to the Mavericks and their friendship! While these can all be read as stand alone books, after reading this book I was torn between reading it again and going through the rest of the books first!! And I’m binging through the entire series!! Outstanding!.Score: 5/5

Moves slowlyThere is nothing fast paced about this book. Everything moved so slowly. I ended up skipping large sections at a time and then skimming until something seemed important. I was surprised because I don’t remember having this issue with Bella Andre books in the past. But I really struggled with this one. Too many details on the first few days in the book timeline. Too much repetition of the same information. I did end up connecting at the end and even tearing up with some of the Harper/Jeremy stuff but I think that was just the mommy in me relating to learning to let my 7yo “fly”..Score: 2/5

He didn’t care enough to stop leading Harper on, he only liked her because she was special.

“Breathless in Love”This contemporary romance contains well developed, believable characters. Will, is a handsome, unselfish billionaire. Harper, Will’s love interest, is a devoted sister of her younger 18 year old brother. Jeremy had previously been hit by a car & in a coma. Now, six years later, Harper has arranged and devoted her life to her brother. However, Jeremy wrote a letter to Will, admiring his rare car collection and is invited to visit the collection. That is when Harper and Will first meet. He immediately realizes he must trend slowly with her and Harper notices how kind & patient Will is with Jeremy. Eventually love blossoms and Harper makes decisions after Will has proclaimed his sincere feelings. In the end, Will is truly her “road warrior.” -Jan Repath.Score: 5/5

LOVED it!First of all, I've read everything by Bella Andre and absolutely fell in love with her books. To be honest, I've never read anything by Jennifer Skully, but I'll definitely be checking her out now! I fell in love with these characters and just wanted to reach into the pages and hug them. Seriously. I don't give recaps of books, because you can read the blurb to get that. I will say that Will.... whew.... delayed gratification and all that. But when things started heating up, they blew off the charts. I can't wait to read more of this series and the Maverick brothers. I really liked how they were introduced throughout the book, so there's already a little backstory waiting for me. I liked the twists and turns in the book and the action was constantly moving things forward. There was never a dull moment anywhere, when I wanted to put the book down, so don't start this one late at night. I loved Jeremy, Harper's little brother. Even he had growth in the story! Amazing!! Definite 5 star read! And the disclaimer: I was given an ARC for an honest review... and this is honest--I LOVED it!!.Score: 5/5

Breathless in LoveThank you for the pleasure of reading an ARC COPY of Breathless In Love. I believe this going to be an awesome series. The Mavericks are a group of billionaires that started with nothing. Grew up in an bad neighborhood. I loved this book, Will's story is so emotional. He is dealing with some really serious stuff from his past, that he feels he not worthy of love until he meets Harper who has had her own set of tragedies in her life. Through their fears they eventually give in to each other for Love. And please do not let me leave out her younger brother Jeremy who was a definite bright spot. Awesome story unpredictable, unexpected suspense, hold on to your heart, feels so real as you read it. My only regret is I have to wait for the next one. Perfect title..Score: 5/5

Will and Harper are perfect for each otherI really enjoyed Breathless in Love, the first book in the Maverick Billionaires series. This is also the second book I've read recently that was co-written, and I think its a great concept and have enjoyed seeing a mix of styles when authors work together. In Breathless in Love, we meet two complicated characters in Harper and Will. Harper spends a lot of time worrying about station - hers, the men she's interested in, and others in her life. Meanwhile, Will has everything Harper thinks she despises, but doesn't act like he does. What's normal for him is so out of the realm of normal for her, its almost unreal. Despite his enormous wealth, Will seems very down to earth to me and I think that's due to his internalization of how he started in life and his insistence on not returning to that life. I don't think he needs his tattoo to remind him of who is was and where he came from. His background drives his enormous need to protect everyone around him. QUOTE: "In that moment, as he held her tight in her arms and she held him right back, Will vowed to do everything in his power to prove he could be good for her as well. He wouldn't let her down." There are so many parallels in this book between Harper's life and speed, and cars. I believe she's feeling her life slipping away from her quickly, and her fears over speed brought on by her brother's accident have manifested themselves into slowing down her life - Jeremy's development, her relationships, everything. Its like she wants to STOP time. Whereas, Will's life is always on fast forward. Its as if he's always running away from himself and he has to do it as quickly as possible. I think part of his fascination with cars is due to his history with stealing cars and ultimately the event that changed his life,which also involved a car. So, for both Harper and Will, speed plays an important part of their lives, but in opposite ways. You wouldn't think they'd be suited for each other as a result of that, but they are. I think Harper helps Will to slow down and see how he is NOW, not through the lens of his past; and Will helps Harper to see that "full speed ahead" shouldn't mean fear for her - but that she should embrace her and Jeremy's futures. Despite Will's need to run away from what he believes is is "true self", he feels nothing but confidence in his feelings for Harper. QUOTE: "I think I've been in love with her from the first moment I saw her standing outside my hangar with her brother, so protective, so beautiful, so strong." ~Will I really enjoyed the character development in Breathless in Love. Harper and Will have depth and Jeremy's character, mentally disabled from an accident, is so wonderfully depicted that I feel like I can SEE him waving hi with his entire body, and speaking entirely too loud at the wrong times. Bella and Jennifer do a wonderful job of weaving together a story that has you laughing and crying and fearful right along with the characters in the story. I also like that while there is angst at the climax of the story, this book doesn't follow the typical "break up", "reconsider", "get back together" scenario. Harper does take time to deal with what had happened to Jeremy, but she is quick to realize that Will wasn't to blame, and her own fears are creating an environment detrimental to her and Jeremy. She is quick to come to this realization and while Will expects for Harper to blame him, as he blames himself, she is quick to reaffirm her feelings for Will and how she wants a future with him. QUOTE: "You were once a little boy who didn't have anyone to take care of him, and now you're a man who always takes care of everyone around you. You make us all better people just by being in our lives." ~Harper In typically Bella Andre fashion, the book gives us an Epilogue that brings closure to Harper and Will's story, but opens the door to the next story in the Maverick Billionaires series. I look forward to reading about the rest of the Mavericks, brothers of the heart and alpha men! Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review..Score: 4/5

Romantic, sexy, fast cars, and a billionaire!!BREATHLESS IN LOVE-- Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully team up to write an incredibly romantic and uplifting story. Will, the self made billionaire with a heart of gold and very bad boy past, will use his charm to get what he wants, even when he doesn't feel he is deserving. Harper, the independent, smart care giver of her younger brother, has spent the last six years keeping herself and her brother in an emotionally protected bubble. Fast cars and undeniable chemistry bring this trio together. A wonderful story about how you can try to do everything right, but it doesn't always mean it continues to be right. Changing for the better means taking a chance. The characters show each other how to take chances, trust, and learn to be better people. Can't wait to read the next story!.Score: 5/5

4 starsLikeable characters. Romance with depth. Story has enough tension to be interesting and dynamic, but not so much as to lend a dark, foreboding atmosphere (as some do.) Enjoyable read!.Score: 4/5

Below Bella Andre's Usual StandardTo say this was a disappointment is an understatement. I don't know if it a product of Ms. Andre's new collaboration or an intentional drift into a genre with less substance and more smut. If you want a thin storyline with redundant subtext and repetitive scenes, this is your book. Yet even the sex scenes (which seems to be the majority of the book) are so poorly constructed as to lose impact. I can't even bring myself to finish this book, and certainly won't bother adding the rest to my library..Score: 1/5
