She is love advice in a coffee shack, he’s protection in a biker bar. When her past meets his present, it’s a killer cocktail that might get them shot, stabbed, or otherwise dead.
Tori Baldwin spends all her time traveling the states, running a mobile coffee shack, and handing out love advice with every cup. She’s staked her rig in the parking lot of Cactus Cove – a local biker bar by all appearances – and plans to stay put for three months. Just long enough to make some money, without making any friends, before she moves to her next destination as she tries to stay ahead of a painful past.
Rain Brookshire is the leader of the Bantorus motorcycle club, and owner of the Cactus Cove in the small town of Pitnam, Washington. He wants the Lagsturns, a rival-bad-news motorcycle club, to leave town before they infect his town with trouble.
With bullets flying and the Lagsturns putting on the pressure, the only way to keep Tori safe – since she refuses to leave town – is for Rain to claim her as his woman. She has no idea that Rain’s played his hand for all to see in the biker world. It doesn’t help that Tori exhibits the three ideal classifications of his ideal woman – Classy, Sexy, and a total Goof – and he can’t help but posture and lay down the law. But, when it appears Tori’s life is in danger, and the Lagsturns are innocent, he isn’t going to let the law stop him from keeping his woman safe.

I really liked this story, it was funny, romantic and exiting. I liked the fact that the biker life was brought to a new perspective the focus lay on the bond between them and them protecting their own.Though I do think the picture presented was also a bit romanticized, but hey it is a romance novel.
Meeting Tori was a real delight, the free spirited, goofy woman who was travelling alone gypsy style got to me. She was running from her past and the thoughts that were stamped into her head by her father. Due to that she made sure she never got attached to anyone. But that all changed when she parked her coffee shack in front of Rain’s bar.
I loved to read how she managed to get under the skin of the though biker. Rain although amused by Tori, originally didn’t want her around. He was certain she was trouble, and she was but as time passed he became accustomed to having her around. Tori got to him, with her spunk, her goofiness and cookie dough, yes even the tough Rain wasn’t immune to the power of cookie dough. Eventually he claimed her as his woman and he didn’t let her forget it either.
Rain saw beneath her goofiness and saw the woman underneath that needed protection. And protection is what she got. Whether she wanted it or not. But Tori wouldn’t be Tori if she didn’t fight him every step of the way.
I really enjoyed reading “Breathing His Air” the only little thing I missed was dinner with Derek and his wife. Would have loved to read how Tori would have put her in her place.
