With Every Breath: A Slow Burn Novel

We rated this book:


This is a sizzling, seductive slow-burn romance that is brimming with so much intensity and all the feels! Maya Bank just reminded me once again why I enjoy the Slow Burn series with her newest installment With Every Breath, as she tethers our hearts to one electric and palpable connection.

“His words, each and every one of them, she committed to memory, savoring and holding them close to her heart where they’d all remain safe and untainted, touched by no one. No one could ever take them away from her. They were hers, given to her and they meant everything to her.”

In this fourth installment, Banks slowly lures readers with her heartfelt prose as she takes us on a journey of a young woman rediscovering her strength, will, and fight to survive. Eliza Cummings thought she had experienced love, but in a series of lies and tragic events, she learned that this love that she thought she had with Thomas was nothing but control and manipulation. When Eliza finally had the strength to leave that part of her life behind her, the monster that she once feared comes back with a vengeance. But this time Eliza is ready for him…Or is she?

“You mean something to me. You. And that means all of you, not just the parts you want me to see while you hide the parts you’re so determined to be ashamed of and feel guilt over. You’re mine, Eliza. All of you. Every inch of you, body and soul. And it wasn’t just your body that I claimed when I made love to you and was inside you so deep that there will never be a time you don’t feel me. I also claimed your heart, your soul, your mind and everything that makes you the person you are and what you were meant to be. And what you were meant to be is mine.”

Wade Sterling is a man that answers to no one. He is arrogant, cocky, confident, and an enigma. There is nothing that can get past his hard exterior and guarded walls. That is, until Eliza Cummings challenges him mentally, physically, and emotionally. Eliza is the only woman who is able to get under his skin. So when Wade started to get suspicious of Eliza’s odd behavior, he knew something was wrong. Since Eliza didn’t want to let him in and tell him what was going on, Wade decided to make Eliza’s problems his. When Eliza informs him of the truth, Wade will stop at nothing in protecting her. As Wade shows Eliza how rare and precious she is, what happens when Eliza’s ex tries to destroy her happiness?

With Every Breath was one of those reads that strips you bare as a heroine discovers how precious she is. Eliza is a relatable character in the sense that she wears her heart on her sleeve. As a child of the foster care system, Eliza craved and wanted love, and so when she thought she had found the right man who loved her, he destroyed her. He left her broken. That is, until the right man showed Eliza the most precious gift of all: the gift of real love. Wade Sterling is a man of few words, but when it comes to Eliza Cummings, she is his everything. And so if you are looking for a love story that beautifully weaves psychic elements, friendship, family, passion, and raw emotions, then With Every Breath is the book for you. Prepare to get lost in a magnetic love story that will awaken all your senses.
