They say you can’t go back but …

Penny Dunsworth was broken.

Before she became the white ghost, she was already unrecognizable. A troubled teenage girl with monsters that couldn’t be slain, and an irrational crush on the only man she considered a friend. Her one crime was daring to think she might finally be free.

Luca Puzza was only trying to figure things out.

His days are balanced between his duty and worth. He can’t seem to make it all work, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. Somethings are just more important—like the girl with the haunted eyes who seems to trust him. He only ever wanted to help.

The past never stays where it belongs—why would it?

It’s the only thing left to warn about the future.

NOTE: One Breath After Another is book 2 in the After Another trilogy. It follows the same couple – Luca and Penny – from present to past, and back again. The books must be read in order. Be warned, the trilogy discusses a subject that may be triggering.

Review: 

Penny and Luca’s story just keeps getting better and better. This is the second book of the trilogy. And I must say that it really ties the story really well. The flashbacks and the retelling of the past were so intricately woven in the plot that it will make you love all these characters even more.

I also loved those little snippets of Penny and Little Cross moments! Auntie Penny really kills it here. Well, not literally though. Because with her line of work, she could really be a totally badass killer. In fact, she is!

There’s so much to love about this book and so much to unpack. While it may leave you wanting a little more until you count the days for the next release, I loved how the second book really puts Penny and Luca’s story into context.

The whole trilogy used in medias res as an exposition device. There are cases when a romance series that uses this plot device may leave you exasperated. But this one is not like that at all. There was a really poignant way that the author narrated the past. And the way Bethany-Kris so artfully shifted between the present and the flashbacks were really great!

Overall, this book will really leave you wanting more but this one will also make you feel quite satisfied at the same time.

Excerpt:

The dream comes to me before death.

I’ve seen it before. It comes to soldiers taking their last ragged breaths. They see their mothers kneeling over them in the middle of the godforsaken desert. They see a beloved wife holding their hand. I don’t have a mother or a wife. So it makes sense that the angel would come in the form of a stranger.

Except my angel begs me to let her go.

“I have money. And my family, they’ll pay a ransom.”

I walk through the conversation as if it’s a forest, touching the leaves and searching for animals beneath the foliage. She’s a puzzle, this angel, but she’s mine. I won’t give her up to die alone.

Adam comes downstairs. You can last seven minutes.

That’s when I know this is no strange dream. There is a woman in the cell with me. Christ. “Don’t listen to him,” I tell her, my voice low. The words echo off the damp stone walls. “Don’t fucking listen to a word he says.”

“You don’t want water?” Adam asks, taunting.

It’s painful how badly I need that goddamn water bottle he’s flaunting. But I have no illusions about my injuries. I’m going to die in this old French prison, and the part that pisses me off the most, the only thing that I really regret, is not taking Adam down with me. “He’s fucking with you.”

“I’ll do it,” the woman says, her voice brave and wavering at the same damn time.

I try to sit up, to stop her, to save her, but pain lashes my side. It blinds me. Ludicrous, the idea that I could save anyone in this state. “Don’t trust him. God, don’t let him—”

Don’t let him touch you.

If he kidnapped this woman, he’s going to do more than touch her.

There’s a squeak as the old metal protests its use.

Shuffling. Movement. The sounds filter through my haze of pain and hunger and the never-ending knife of thirst. They filter through with a bolt of goddamn outrage.

How dare he touch her? She’s my angel of death. Mine.

I shake my head against the cold concrete. No, that’s the blood loss speaking. She’s a real woman. Flesh and blood. And she’s going to get hurt.

“Let’s bring you into the light,” Adam says with his flawless, fake French accent.

It’s pitch-fucking-black down here, but somehow he finds a tiny shaft of light. The door is open a crack. Hope surges through me. No matter how unlikely escape, the human spirit won’t give up.

The woman cries out as she stumbles over something. Her back hits the bars with a clang. And then I can actually see her face in more than monochrome shadows. The delicate bridge of her nose, the eyes wide with fear. Blue. They’re blue. Her lips are a full, flawless pout, and my hope rips to shreds.

She’s beautiful. Incandescent, even in this hellhole. How will she ever survive?

“There we are,” Adam says, sounding very pleased with himself. He’s crowding her, one arm holding the bars, the other cupping her jaw. His perfectly tailored suit was made for this moment. It could be the picture of any man flirting with his date after dinner, stealing a kiss outside the restaurant.

Except he didn’t date her. He kidnapped her.

Review:

Skye Warren never fails to disappoint in delivering a gritty dark romance that will leave you wanting for more! I love the sizzling chemistry between Elijah and Holly.

Diamond in the Rough had such a great plot and was so masterfully written. You will definitely feel torn as you get to empathize with the characters and the motivation behind their actions.

I can’t wait to hear more of Elijah and Holly’s story! That cliffhanger ending made me so intrigued!

Book Blurb:

Our relationship, mine and Cole’s, isn’t a simple one.
It’s complicated, frustrating and, at times, downright ugly.
You see, I fell for a man who couldn’t love me back.

Hard as I tried to avoid the dimpled prince of Seattle, life threw us together.
As much as we resisted temptation, he burrowed his way into my heart.
Sinful as our attraction was, our destinies were entwined.

Don’t worry. Ours is a love story, after all. I had no idea how our fairytale would play out, but one thing I knew for certain?

Fate had a twisted sense of humor, and she did not play fair.

Review:

This my first time reading a book written by Krissy Daniels. And I must say that she took me by surprise. The story, even from just the blurb itself, made me captivated from the get-go. Cole and Nat were such intriguing characters that you can’t just help but empathize with them.

I thought that it was just some romantic love at first sight type of story. So I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be an angsty and emotional rollercoaster of a love story. The story has complicated relationships and friendships. You get that raw and emotional feeling of being torn between rooting for these two characters and also wanting them to do the right thing at the same time.

Overall, I’m very impressed with the way Krissy Daniels has written this book. It had the right pacing and the perfect blend of angst and romance that will leave you very satisfied in the end. I’m looking forward to reading more of her upcoming books!
