Just Breathe (Breathe #1)
by: Rachel Brookes
A New Adult novel
For Savannah Rae, living life without her parents was unimaginable. But being blamed for her first love’s suicide? That destroyed every part of who she was.
When an opportunity to leave the nightmares of her past in Australia opens up, she takes it. Los Angeles beckons - with hopes of late nights, new beginnings, and the promise of a string of endless men to distract her, she can’t wait to dive in.
One thing she didn’t count on was meeting her match.
In the eyes of outsiders, Tate Connors has it all; the ultimate LA bachelor who is content with his lifestyle of wild nights, women and one night stands. He's Mr. Unpredictable with looks that could destroy any woman with one glance.
The craziness of Los Angeles throws them into the chaotic path of each other. Savannah becomes the perfect game, and Tate becomes the ultimate prey. Lines are crossed, emotions are smashed, and the idea of who they truly are begins to be tangled.

What happens when the bad boy/player meets his match? Tate Connors finds out when Savannah Rae moves from Australia to Los Angeles. Can they put aside their love'em and leave'em ways or are some habits just too hard to break?
I enjoyed reading about a female character that wasn't pure, virginal or self-conscious; Savannah is a naughty girl and she embraces her assets to get what she wants. Rachel Brookes does a good job with the slow build up of tension between Tate and Savannah, you get to see them circling each other and gauging just how far they are willing to take their flirtation. The dialogue was fun and flirty, Savannah being Australian was very entertaining, making for some comical moments with her word choices.
New Adult is always an iffy genre for me, being in my thirties I sometimes expect the characters to act more grown up than what a typical 20-something may act, so that is my hang-up. No two people read the same book, read the prologue and first chapter I have linked above to see if this is something you would enjoy.
Rachel Brookes is an author I will keep my eye on, curious what she will come up with next.
