Can't Hardly Breathe
The Original Heartbreakers #4
Format Read: eARC
Source: Publisher via NetGalley
Bullied in high school, Dorothea Mathis’s past is full of memories she’d rather forget. But there’s one she can’t seem to shake—her longstanding crush on former Army Ranger Daniel Porter. Now that the sexy bad boy has started using her inn as his personal playground, she should kick him out...but his every heated glance makes her want to join him instead.
Daniel returned to Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma to care for his ailing father and burn off a little steam with no strings attached. Though he craves the curvy Dorothea night and day, he’s as marred by his past as she is by hers. The more he desires her, the more he fears losing her.
But every sizzling encounter leaves him desperate for more, and soon Daniel must make a choice: take a chance on love or walk away forever.

I have been loving this series. There is so much emotions, both good and bad in it. You learn that life isn't always fair but that people can change if they want to.
You met Daniel in the prior book but for the most part he was very one-dimensional and very cold. I wasn't sure how I would like him as a hero. When you first meet Dorothea she's also not what I call a warm person. She's very mean to Harlow, getting her back for how she acted as a kid. Because it was Harlow's story, I really didn't like her.
Of course before the end of the book she becomes the person you know now. Sweet, shy and very caring.
So when Daniel and Dorothea were matched I was...thrown! How were these two every going to become a couple? I will be honest, I had many doubts. But since I love Showalter's books I couldn't pass up the chance to read it.
I'm so glad I did. You will really come to understand Daniel and why he is the way he is. You'll find him to not be one-dimensional at all. In fact, there are layers to his personality that I would have missed if I hadn't given this book a chance.
So often throughout the story I wanted Dorothea (Thea to Daniel) to be strong and fight for what she wanted. I was so happy when she stood up to her bratty sister and wouldn't let her walk all over her. Daniel and Thea's relationship might have started off rocky but they were able to work out all the little things keeping them from having a loving relationship.
You will also meet new characters, both Thea and Daniel's friends. I have to tell you that showalter does a wonderful job and writing friendships. I truly believe these people are friends.
