My Review

“I want more of him, full stop. And then he gives me what I want. His lips. His hands on me. His body against mine. He kisses me like I’m his sunshine to a rainy day again. He steals my breath.”

“This kiss will forever live in my mind. Luke doesn’t simply kiss–he possesses. He takes me mind, body, and soul. In this kiss, I find hope. Hope that he will fight for me. For the us we both want. Any doubt I had that he wants me is put to rest.”

“Life isn’t lived in black and white, Luke. You have taught me that. We exist in shades of colour. Some days are the blackest of black while others are pure as white. And then, when we’re lucky, there are days filled with brilliant bursts of colour. My time with you was filled with days of red, and yellow, and green, and all of the colours of the rainbow.”

Steal My Breath was simply an amazing read. Nina Levine has knocked it out of the park with this one. I mean, not only can she write super hot, alpha male bikers and rock stars, but now she has delivered even more than I could ask for in her new stand-alone contemporary romance. Steal My Breath is refreshing and captivating. It’s unlike anything that I’ve read by this author before.

Steal My Breath literally takes your breath away, right from the very first page. You see, when you first start reading this book, you think to yourself that it’s just another romance. However, you would be wrong in thinking that. There is so much more to this story. The journey to HEA for Luke and Callie is not an easy one. Their journey is complicated and is filled with many obstacles. Their journey will help them build an amazing friendship and slowly grows into more. The chemistry between Luke and Callie is off the charts and undeniable. And with Callie’s track record with men, you can’t help but find yourself rooting for her; hoping that she will finally get some luck in her search for Mr. Right. Luke…man, he was in a tough situation. He kept his life and his past a secret and with good reason. Once you know his secret, you may be left conflicted and curious as to how this will all play out. You will be left wondering if there can be a HEA for these two characters…

Steal My Breath was a fantastic read, from start to finish. I read it all in one sitting, completely unable to put it down. The characters and their story completely consumed me and kept me on the edge of my seat just wondering what would happen next. Steal My Breath had just the right amount of drama, romance, suspense and angst. It’s hot and sexy. It wouldn’t be a Nina Levine story without a sexy, take charge, alpha male. And let me tell you, Luke does not disappoint.

Steal My Breath is a great story about the quest for love and finding it where you least expect it. It’s a story about hope and holding onto love. It’s about not giving up when you finally do find that love.

Excerpt

Here’s a taste of Luke & Callie…

I stand and move to him. His back muscles tense when I place my hand on his shoulder. “I want to get to know everything about you, Luke Hardy,” I say and he spins around to face me.

His eyes search mine. “You already know the important bits.”

“No, I don’t.” I rest my hand against his chest. “I don’t know the secrets you keep locked in here. They’re the important bits.”

His intake of breath is sharp and he wraps his hand around mine. His other hand slides around my waist and he pulls me close.

Oh, shit.

No.

Too close.

But his lips brush across mine before I can move out of his embrace. His hold is tight and his message is very clear—he’s in charge here and if a kiss is what he wants, a kiss is what he will have.

He surprises me, though, and angles his face away from mine. Still keeping hold of me, he says, “I know we’re doing the friends-only thing for awhile, but a man’s got needs, Callie. If you put your hands on me, you better be prepared for the consequence of that.”

I’m pretty sure my eyes almost pop out of my head. I knew Luke was bossy—oh, boy did I know—but this is a whole new level of bossy. His deep voice vibrates along my skin, scattering goose bumps, while his eyes penetrate my soul. Those intense, green eyes of his will do it to me every time. They’ll cause me to forget everything I’ve ever said or thought and just cling to him for the ride.

He dips his face again and his mouth finds mine. The moment our lips connect sparks of desire burn through me. I’m so damn hot for him and I can’t control myself. I push my body hard against his and open my mouth to him.

He tastes like whiskey and I make a note to buy some just so I can remember this moment forever. I’ve never loved whiskey before, but it may just be my new favourite drink.

This kiss will forever live in my mind. Luke doesn’t simply kiss—he possesses. He takes me mind, body and soul.

In this kiss I find hope.

Hope that he will fight for me.

For the us we both want.
