ARC Review: As You Breathe Again by Molli Moran

Title: As You Breathe Again

Author: Molli Moran


She's never had the courage to hold on to anyone. He never learned how to let go of what he wants.

Delaney Shaw isn't looking for anything complicated. After her teaching career is put on hold, she decides to spend the summer in Georgia with her best friend. Lanie lives for the here and now, and she isn't thinking past the end of the summer. She's never had any problem being unattached, because she learned a long time ago that life is safer that way.

Until Reece Walker decides to change her mind.

Almost a year after his ex-wife's death, Reece is still reeling from her passing. He's devoted himself to raising their son and working his family's farm to keep himself grounded. Reece feels like he's lost sight of the man he used to be, and he's not sure how to find his way back.

Everything changes when the woman he's unsuccessfully tried to forget walks back into his life.

Even though she's fighting their sizzling chemistry, Lanie is losing the war. But love isn't always like it is in the movies, and they have real issues. Lanie is terrified Reece's small town won't accept their interracial relationship, and she doesn't know how to let him in.

Lanie has had years to build her defenses, but Reece isn't the sort to give up without a fight. If he can counter Lanie's fears with the future only he can offer her, maybe they can both learn to breathe again.


I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

This book was a truly wonderful contemporary romance novel. I waited for it for what felt like forever but it was definitely worth it because Molli Moran delivered the perfect companion to one of my favorite reads of 2014, As You Turn Away.

Reece and Lanie were everything! There relationship left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside because their relationship was so sweet and adorable but with a good dose of steaminess also. But while Reece and Lanie were great and all it was all the secondary characters that was the biggest highlight for me. Jonah, Quinn, Ethan and especially little Jamie were all so great and I loved getting to read about them all.

But aside from the characters and swoon-worthy romance, I also just loved the way that this story dealt with the topics of interracial relationships and moving on after the death of a significant other. Everything was handled in a way that I though was very realistic and made me love the book all the more.

Overall, I loved this book so much! It was such a beautiful romance with an especially satisfying HEA that made me feel all the things. If I wasn't already a big fan of Molli Moran, this book would have instantly made me one.
