Breathe with Me is the seventh book in Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle series and features Mark Montgomery and his long lost lady love, Meredith. Years ago Mark and Meredith were M & M a power couple in their high school and things were looking like a forever kind of love. Until Meredith just disappeared and decided to dump Mark without an explanation leaving him heartbroken as she went on to follow her dream of dancing. Years later, she is back in town and there is still an attraction between them and they agree to start again.
As a couple, Mark and Meredith are pretty believable and cute and I do love a good second chance story. I also love Meredith’s best friend although didn’t like how all the Montgomery women just made the assumption that because he was gay he must be into things that are more girly. Yes he was a dancer but he was still a guy. I also felt that Mark and Meredith fell back into love too quickly and I would have thought that there would have been a bit more tension over the way things ended originally.
There was tension, and of course that pointless conflict that you all know I love, but it all came from Meredith. Meredith had some crazy trust issues that boarded on insane. Mark would have dinner with an old friend who was a very married woman and she’d jump all over him and accuse him of cheating, not loving her, and then storming away and breaking up. So many times her reactions were enough to give me whiplash and I don’t know why Mark put up with it. Especially when, in my opinion, Mark is the one who should have had all the crazy trust issues.
Overall, Breathe with Me is a quick read and I enjoyed seeing all the Montgomerys again. I am a bit sad that the next book will be the last book as I will miss this family. For me, the best part of this book was the secondary characters and Mark as Meredith did annoy me. Breathe with Me may not be a book I re-read over and over but it isn’t a bad way to spend an evening.
