Ryan Willis has spent years in the protection business, a job that requires constant vigilance and quick thinking. His only chance to truly relax is at his secluded cabin in a small town where there are never any surprises. So when Ryan returns after an assignment and encounters a beautiful stranger, he isn't only surprised, he's also instantly intrigued.

Hannah Bright is a breath of fresh air, and Ryan is soon completely consumed, unable to stop from falling for her. As the two grow closer, his instinct tells him something is amiss. Yet nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he starts digging into her past.

Hannah spends her days painting, running her arts and crafts store...and hiding too many secrets. It's why she won't let the ruggedly handsome bodyguard get too close. But their chemistry is undeniable, and Hannah quickly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. He is peace personified, a balm to her battered soul. Yet the gorgeous, captivating man who has swept Hannah off her feet doesn't even know who she really is. And the moment he finds out, both their lives are at risk.

Leave Me Breathless is the story of a woman in hiding who happens upon a man who specializes in personal protection. Their meet-cute is unique-he hits her with his car! Also, the intro to the story gives us a glimpse at Jake and Cami (From The Protector).

Hannah is on the run, but you don’t immediately know why. She is trying to take her life back and is opening an art store in a tiny town in the English countryside. Ryan is taking a sabbatical from private security and returning home. Both Hannah and Ryan have secrets but there is attraction and curiosity.

Ryan’s daughter Alex adds some levity to the story because anyone who has spent time with a 10 year old knows they think they are grown people and it’s funny. Hannah and Ryan’s story has all the earmarks of a classic damsel in distress story and that really works for me. Malpas writes in a lot of emotional depth with the characters and the story is her classic steam level of HOT. Leave me Breathless also has a touch of the crazy ex trope, because Darcy is just awful for most of the book.

Leave Me Breathless really won me over because of Hannah and Ryan. Their love is movie love. Its fairytale love. Its what you dream about and songs are written about. I was enchanted with their story almost immediately and read furiously all afternoon because I simple didn’t want to stop.

Until the day I die, I will consume so much of your mind, there will be no room for anything else. I will be the shield between you and your memories, Hannah. There is only happiness in our future. Only tenderness and love.

About Jodi Ellen Malpas

Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN - the first book of the This Man Trilogy - in October 2012. She took a chance on a story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction. With so much love and enthusiasm from her readers, and a thirst for more of her words, Jodi suddenly wasn't afraid of her imagination anymore. She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. She’s now a proud #1 New York Times bestselling author – all six of her published novels having hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as a Sunday Times bestseller and international bestseller. Her work is published in over 20 languages across the world.

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse & mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males.
Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers
