Summary from

Sometimes you meet the right person at the wrong time…

Mark Williams has loved Meredith since he was seventeen. A successful man with a strong family, he’s worked hard to move on from Meredith breaking his heart all those years ago. When his path crosses with the only woman he’s ever loved again years later, Mark knows there is nothing he won’t do to keep her in his life. But when the going gets tough, will Meredith stick around or will he lose her again?

…But true love has a way of finding its way back.

Meredith Summers is a dancer. One of the first things she learned in following her dreams is that timing is everything. She has spent the past ten years following her dream touring with mega-stars while trying to forget the high school sweetheart she left behind. Now she’s back in Seattle, running a successful dance studio with her best friend Jax and determined to move on from her gypsy past. Until the day she sees Mark Williams and time stands still. It’s as if no time has passed at all when Meredith finds herself in Mark’s arms again. The chemistry, the bonds and the love are as strong as ever and hearing Mark whisper breathe with me in her ear is a balm to her wounded soul. But will she grab onto this second chance at love, or is the timing all wrong for them again?

My review:

Breathe With Me is the 7th book in the With Me in Seattle series, and it was one of the best.  This book  was about Mark Williams, Luke (book 1) and Sam’s (book 4) brother.  The book starts 10 years ago, when Mark is in high school and is dating Meredith.  They are in love, but Meredith is moving to New York and breaks things off with Mark.

10 years later, Meredith’s mom dies, and she and Mark reunite.  When she was 13, Meredith lost her father and sister in a car accident and feels that everyone she loves will die.  Sparks fly immediately, and they reconnect.  As per the usual, the Montgomery’s and Williams’ family have a strong presence in the story.  Very strong – including a trip to Vegas for Meg’s bitchlerette party.  I did want to bitch slap Meredith at the end of the book, but it was also kind of understandable.  Mark was really awesome during the whole book.

This book had a good storyline, and Mark and Meredith were both very likable characters.  Meredith’s best friend and partner, Jax, was a great character as well, and I enjoyed his character and relationship development with his boyfriend Logan.  The trip to Vegas was the best part in the book.  It was hilarious, and also contained a very sweet moment with a previous book’s couple.  Wont’ spoil it, but it was really sweet.
