She’s never had the courage to hold on to anyone. He never learned how to let go of what he wants.

Delaney Shaw isn’t looking for anything complicated. After her teaching career is put on hold, she decides to spend the summer in Georgia with her best friend. Lanie lives for the here and now, and she isn’t thinking past the end of the summer. She’s never had any problem being unattached, because she learned a long time ago that life is safer that way.

Until Reece Walker decides to change her mind.

Almost a year after his ex-wife’s death, Reece is still reeling from her passing. He’s devoted himself to raising their son and working his family’s farm to keep himself grounded. Reece feels like he’s lost sight of the man he used to be, and he’s not sure how to find his way back.

Everything changes when the woman he’s unsuccessfully tried to forget walks back into his life.

Even though she’s fighting their sizzling chemistry, Lanie is losing the war. But love isn’t always like it is in the movies, and they have real issues. Lanie is terrified Reece’s small town won’t accept their interracial relationship, and she doesn’t know how to let him in.

 Lanie has had years to build her defenses, but Reece isn’t the sort to give up without a fight. If he can counter Lanie’s fears with the future only he can offer her, maybe they can both learn to breathe again.


This book was provided by the author through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Molli Moran and Netgalley!

As You Breathe Again is the second book in The Walker Boys series and tells the story of Lanie and Reece. Although this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone.

As You Breahte Again is the first book I’ve read by Molli Moran and I really liked it. I really liked the concept of this story as well as the characters.

Lanie is such a strong woman and she defends herself and others, and that’s something I admire. She has a darker skin colour and because of that she gets a lot of remarks from different people, but she keeps on her brave face and tells them it’s not okay. I love that this book talks about racism because it’s an everyday struggle for people who have a darker skin colour or love someone from the same sex, etc.

Reece is your typical well-raised country guy, and he was really cute. I loved that he fought for Lanie and even waited for her to be ready. Lanie and Reece are so cute together and I couldn’t get enough of them!

As You Breahte Again is a beautiful book and I cannot wait to read the first book in the series, As You Turn Away!
