Book Review+Release Blitz: Unbearable Guilt (#2 Breathe Again) by Emma Grayson...GIVEAWAY

Title: Unbearable Guilt
Author: Emma Grayson
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 24, 2014


Kane Archer hasn’t always been full of rage or torment, he hasn’t always hated life or himself, and he hasn’t always lived in a world riddled with so much guilt that it consumed him. There was a time when his life was complete, when he smiled and laughed, made electrifyingly passionate love, and breathed happiness.

Until the unthinkable took it all away from him.

Now, still reeling from his fiancĂ©e’s death two and a half years later, and with the promise he made to find the men who killed her and bring them to justice –regardless of the cost– Kane returns to Camden, the one place he swore he’d never go back to.

Numb, afflicted by guilt, and haunted by the events that led to Aimee’s death, the last thing Kane wanted was to meet someone he felt connected to; who made him feel again.

As Kane gets closer to the ones responsible for Aimee’s death, he’s thrown a curve ball when he discovers a secret so devastating it not only rocks his world, but threatens to destroy any chance at happiness.

Whitney Jareau packed up her life and left everything behind when tragedy struck her family. Finally able to get away from her persistent and domineering family who wanted her to do the one thing she couldn’t, she found her solitude in Camden.

Now, two years later, her family wants her home and will go to any lengths to get her there. With her heart on her sleeve for Kane Archer, a man so gorgeous it hurts to see the pain he carries, Whitney fights her family and refuses to return home to carry out their wishes.

Can Whitney stand strong without succumbing to the demands of her family?

Can Kane let Aimee and the past go in order to move forward with the woman who brought him back to life?

Or will he walk away from her and only ever feel the burden of UNBEARABLE GUILT

Book Review:

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I had no idea going to get a super badass alpha male with such an emotional story. It's dual POV and Emma Grayson does it exceptionally well!

Kane Archer is still reeling over the loss of his fiancee two years after she was kidnapped and taken from her. Now he's all about finding the man that took her from him. He's repressing his feelings by pushing them aside because he doesn't want to lose Aimee. But then he meets the beautiful barista at the local coffee shop, Whitney Jareau, and suddenly, he's having feelings that he never thought he would have again in his lifetime. And he's not the only one affected. Whitney has finally found someone who she loves, but family will come in the way to destroy what she and Kane have worked so hard for.

  "No man has ever inflicted such thought, such antagonizing curiosity, and such twists of my nervous system before. To be honest, I didn't know if I liked it so much." -Whitney

I thought this book was one of the better books I've read in a while. I like the way we get not only the action but the gut wrenching emotions coming from both characters. Whitney is living a life she wants even though her family is forcing her back home. And when she meets Kane, she feels the connection right away. Kane feels it and as hard as he tries to not fall in love with her, his feelings for Whitney are inevitable.

  "Kane was like a piece of that perfect chocolate cake [. . .] He was going to be delicious, making me come back for seconds, thirds, and probably fourths, until there was no going back and I was making chocolate cake for the rest of my life." -Whitney

Overall, I'm giving this standalone novel 4 STARS out of 5 STARS for the emotional toll it put on me. The climax is intense but amazing, and the ending is superb! The supporting characters are fabulous! Especially Basil... And when you come across her, you'll understand why I love her and hope she gets her own story! I cannot wait for the next book by Emma Grayson.
