This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Anya Volkov was adopted from Russia as a child, only to be rejected a year later, deemed ‘difficult.’ After a lifetime of bouncing from foster home to foster home Anya is living in the East Village and scraping by playing gigs in small clubs, and facing eviction. She’ll do whatever it takes to keep a roof over the head of herself and her one year old son. Including making nice with the twin she doesn’t remember and stealing baby food from a grocery store.
Kane Dermott doesn’t want to bust the pierced and sexy woman stealing at the grocery but neither does he want to help her or believe her sob story. Being a cop and the oldest of six siblings with a single mom, he’s always the one doing the right thing. The one everyone depends on. The good guy. For once he just wants to have some fun with the hot girl, and Anya is more than willing to make him forget her petty theft in the most delicious way possible.
But it turns out the sob story is real and in the murky world of black market babies, Anya and her son are in danger, and Kane can’t walk away from the mysterious and broken woman he has come to love. But neither can he trust her.
When lies are truth and truths are lies, sometimes only love is the answer…
Another freaking fantastic book by Erin McCarthy!!!!
Another freaking fantastic book by Erin McCarthy!!!! Breathe Me In is book five in the Blurred Lines series and is Anya and Kane's story. Anya is Chloe's (from Meant for Me) twin sister and a single mother who has hit rock bottom. Anya and Chloe were abandoned by their parents and put into foster care, where they were split apart at the age of three. Anya doesn't remember Chloe and has learned not to trust anyone, she reacts very badly when Chloe tracks her down and they meet for the first time. When she gets kicked out of her apartment for refusing to have sex with the manager, she turns to Chloe and Ethan hoping they will take her and her son, Asher in. On her way to Chloe, Anya, who has no money and hasn't eaten in days, is desperate to get food for Asher and steals some baby food from a convenient store. She's confronted by a fellow shopper, Kane, who is also a cop, about her theft but he lets her go after buying her a sandwich, giving her some cash and making her give him her number. Their relationship is a series of ups and downs, Anya can't let go of her trust issues and Kane is the classic knight in shining armor, he does everything he can to ensure she is safe, happy and protected. This story was pretty intense and sometimes frustrating, I just wanted Anya to let go of the past and open her eyes to see what was in right front of her face.
Great Addition to the Series!
I really enjoyed this 5th book in the Blurred Lines Series. Before reading the book, I was doubtful about Anya making a credible main character. I was soon relieved of that worry, as there was so much more to her than what was apparent in the last book. She was very complicated and not always easy to like, but her fierce determination to do right by her son made me admire her. She hadn't had an easy life, and had never been shown love, so she didn't have much trust in relationships. Kane, on the other hand, was nurturing, and it was in his nature to take care of everyone. It was his inclination to step in and rescue everyone else without thinking much about what he needed. I really enjoyed the story of these two getting to know one another, and finding their way to a relationship that worked for both of them.
Anya is an impoverished, young single mother who has always had to look out for herself. She's afraid a man she turned to when she was backed into a corner will harm her son, so she seeks shelter with the twin sister she only recently realized she had. From experience, she knows to trust no one, but when she meets Kane at a bus station, he lends help when she needs it most. As they get to know one another, Anya is afraid to trust in her developing feelings for Kane. If they are to be able to have anything together, she will have to overcome her past in order to trust and believe in Kane and what they could have.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Breathe Me In. It was a very quick and easy book to read. It had great characters and an interesting storyline. I was glad to see the characters from the last book again, and was completely satisfied with the way the story played out.
