More About this Book
Lincoln McCaw lost everything—his home, his job, his partner—after he caused a fatal accident. A year later, he's drowning the guilt and despair in whiskey, but he needs to move on. His sister and her kids are counting on him. Then he meets a man who ignites a passion Lincoln thought he’d never find. Too bad one night is all they can have together. Now he needs to figure out how to turn away from the only person who makes him feel alive…before whoever is sending him threats decides Lincoln needs to suffer more than he already has.
Jay Miller is surrounded by grief and misery until he finally gives in to all those years of sexual fantasies about being with another guy. Realizing he’s ended up in the arms of the man who caused his wife’s accident, he tries to pull away. But how can he give up a friendship he needs more than anything—a friendship and a love that could save him? He may not have time to make the choice before someone else destroys it all.
This book contains explicit sexual content and graphic language.
For those who have the first print or e-book edition of BREATHE, the separately released epilogue
(WHAT YOU DO TO ME) is available for free to read:

"If you loved Breathe and did not
get enough of these two men, this
epilogue is a must! I love the two
heroes and though it was against all
reasoning that they could ever be
together as a couple, they made it!" --

"The character connection in
this book is really sizzling
hot. Both of these men are
passionate creatures and it
shows in all they do."
"BREATHE was both believable and
authentic. The characters, their
issues, and the action was organic,
flowing beautifully from one scene
to the next. The fact Ms. Parker has
managed this with a large cast of
characters and fast-paced movement
is nothing short of masterful
"It’s hard enough to have two
people meet, convincingly draw
them together, make the reader
love them, and craft a story
that brings the reader on a
ride. But to place two
characters who have such a major
event tying them together and
holding them apart at the same
time…it was captivating. And
without giving anything away,
I’ll simply state that this
talented author has delivered.
She has managed to create both
as sympathetic, sexual, and
lovable. Their relationship
becomes something you not only
want but need
to see succeed."
"Vivid and emotional, the sex
between Jay and Lincoln not only

reader you can't help but sympathize
with both heroes, thanks to the
author's skillful way of depicting
them and their conflict. Both are
great, loveable characters, who have
their flaws but are basically
good-hearted and honest men."
