This installment is a companion novel to the Sea Breeze series and is a continuation of Breathe. Jason Stone (Jax’s brother) has taken up residence in Sea Breeze to contemplate his future. His mother has political plans for her youngest son, and nothing better get in her way. An unexpected affair with a girl from “the wrong side of tracks” leads Jason to question more than just his future.  He’s tired of living in his rock star brother’s shadow, and even more tired of being used to get to Jax. Jess is a welcome diversion who is taken with Jason’s chivalry, and knows she’s feeling too much too soon. I have a lot of mixed feelings about this addition to the Sea Breeze family. The book starts with a bang. I absolutely love how Jason and Jess meet. The story also ends with a bang, and I love the ending. The problem is the middle – the meat of the story. Jason is not a typical romantic hero and his character is in question early on. I did however love Jess. I appreciated her no-nonsense attitude, and the character she became after she and Jason split the first time. There are so many questions left unanswered. Jess’s career as a designer (or lack thereof) is disappointing. There is a huge missed or underdeveloped storyline here! The conflict near the end of the book (no spoilers here!) seemed to fall flat. I did not see or hear enough about her mother to care about her. This makes Jess’s actions somewhat unbelievable. This is most definitely a dialogue driven story – which I love. I did appreciate Jason’s romantic side, and thoroughly enjoyed the first part of their trip to New York City. I also always look for strong supporting characters, and I just didn’t find them in this one. For me, lack of a supporting cast leaves the principal parts underdeveloped. My biggest disappointment is with the cost. This is expensive for a Kindle book! Really expensive! But overall, it is a quick and easy read that finished with a beautiful happily ever after!
