Breathless by Lex Martin
Release Date: February 18th
Genre/Trope: Contemporary romance/Boy next door, friends to lovers
I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that.
I’d call it self-preservation.
I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat to his revolving bedroom door.
My escape plan almost worked.
Except I left one thing behind.
Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it back. This time for good.
I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about everything.
Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.
She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest.
When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth.
But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living so many lies.

This was one of those books that you start and can’t put down. Joey and Logan are best friends since they were young and super close. Through bad times and good, they are always there for each other and there are a lot of both. It’s a friend to lovers storyline and Logan is the blueprint for the perfect man. He truly is the most genuine person with a heart of gold but leads people to believe what they want about him even if it’s bad.
Joey and Logan have always had an attraction to the other but out of respect of their friendship neither acts on those feelings. Due to an unfortunate miscommunication Joey feels the need to take off and use the excuse of her ailing grandmother to leave Logan and all his playboy ways. Her heart can’t take watching Logan with other women, and she realizes that she is wasting her time pining for him. He is heartbroken she is gone, longs for her and feels like he did something to offend her and make her leave. Boy, men are stupid.
Fast forward a few months and Joey is back for a wedding. Logan is not going to pass up any opportunity to spend time with her. Only Logan has a few secrets of his own that he is harboring and knows that if he wants to tell Joey how he truly feels about her he must tell her about these secrets. It was heartbreaking to watch these two characters who are clearly madly in love navigate through issues that arise. But it makes you see how much these two are truly soulmates. This was such a heartwarming story and the author did a fantastic job of describing the deep feelings these two have for each other. It was a great love story and I didn’t want this book to end! And did I mentioned I loved Logan and wished he was real? Will definitely read more from this author.
