Sometimes you meet the right person at the wrong time… 

Mark Williams has loved Meredith since he was seventeen. A successful man with a strong family, he' s worked hard to move on from Meredith breaking his heart all those years ago. When his path crosses with the only woman he' s ever loved again years later, Mark knows there is nothing he won' t do to keep her in his life. But when the going gets tough, will Meredith stick around or will he lose her again? 

…But true love has a way of finding its way back. 

Meredith Summers is a dancer. One of the first things she learned in following her dreams is that timing is everything. She has spent the past ten years following her dream touring with mega-stars while trying to forget the high school sweetheart she left behind. Now she' s back in Seattle, running a successful dance studio with her best friend Jax and determined to move on from her gypsy past. Until the day she sees Mark Williams and time stands still. It' s as if no time has passed at all when Meredith finds herself in Mark' s arms again. The chemistry, the bonds and the love are as strong as ever and hearing Mark whisper breathe with me in her ear is a balm to her wounded soul. But will she grab onto this second chance at love, or is the timing all wrong for them again? 

Don't miss catching up with the Montgomery and Williams clans in this latest installment of the With Me In Seattle Series from New York Times bestselling author, Kristen Proby. 

“There were days that I would have exchanged a year of my life just to touch you one more time.” –Mark Williams 

You guys… this book didn’t piss me off like Tied With Me did. THANK GOD. I actually enjoyed this book a lot better than Tied With Me, but if you’ve read my rant with Tied With Me, you’ll know that it hit a sore spot for me… so.. yeah.

Breathe With Me is a second chance romance. Mark and Meredith were High School Sweethearts with plans of moving to New York City. That is, until Meredith decided to pursue her dreams on her own and breaking Mark’s heart. When I read that scene I shook my fist and started calling her names. Why does one leave the person they’re so much in love with? I cried for her and for Mark when she did that. I understand now why Mark turned into playboy. It’s hard to fall in love with someone when another already possesses your heart. I’m so glad that fate brought them back together again. When M & M meet again, it’s under sad circumstances, but it was like no time had passed at all between them.

While I liked this book a lot more than the last one, My mother (who actually discovered this series when the first one came out and suggested that I read it.) and I both agree that it’s not as good as the first so many in the series. Unfortunately that’s usually what happens when there’s quite a few books in a series. Oh well!  It’s not a bad book, so I hope that doesn’t keep you from reading this book..I just wanted to inform you to not expect greatness while reading it.  I’m hoping that Dominic’s book will be better. We shall see!


Some of my favorite quotes from this book:

“If she ever tries to leave me, I’ m going with her. This life doesn’ t work without her.”  – Luke referring to his wife, Natalie.


“I still think of her as mine. After all this time, when I think of Meredith, she’ s my Meredith.
Irrational? Yes. 

Stupid? Most definitely. 
But I don’ t give a fuck.”  – Mark Williams


“We’ re not friends, Mark,” I reply sadly. “We’ re strangers with memories.”  – Meredith Summers to Mark Williams 


“There were days … that I would have exchanged a year of my life just to touch you one more time. You are my biggest what if.”  – Mark Williams to Meredith Summers

One last thing before I go…. I can’t be the only who finds the Cover Models kind of ugly…. or am I? Hmmm!
