I Breathe You by Lori Clark
When a tragic accident leaves Rhane Evans -- lead vocalist for the rock band Fate's Crazy -- permanently unable to speak above a whisper and kills the love of her life, she moves across the state to pick up the pieces. Shattered, Rhane struggles to understand what happened the night of the accident, an accident everyone blames her for, even though she wasn't driving the car.
Enter Ian Callahan. He's the one person who may have a more tumultuous past than Rhane. Though they try hard to deny the sizzling attraction between them, it proves nearly impossible. When Ian's troubled past threatens to tear them apart, they begin to believe happiness isn't in their cards.
Because Fate's Crazy that way...

Firsty - a big thanks to Lori Clark for giving me a copy of this before release !
“A tiny voice inside my head reminds me to just breathe. Inhale, one, two, three. Hold, one, two, three. Exhale, one, two, three. Repeat.”
Rhane is the lead singer of an up and coming band, she is an incredible writer and together with her smokin hot boyfriend, Dalton, they write beautiful music. Dalton and Rhane argue like Crazy. But the make up sex is worth arguing for!
After a gig one night, Rhane and Dalton are involved in an accident resulting in Dalton losing his life and Rhane's voice being forever stolen. Utterly devestating for any singer/girlfriend.
"Uncle T" becomes Rhane's rock - he arranges a place for her to live, repairs to make it homley and someone to live with her to nurse her back to full health (Gwen).
Uncle T just rocks...he is funny, caring and too sarcastic for words!
Lori gave me this book a few weeks ago and it took me some time to get round to it due to work commitments (you know that thing I've got to do to keep earning money!!) but when I did, I was hooked.
I was slightly disconnected from Ian for the first 50% but when we got to know him, he was so lovely. Rhane was just a hurt, young girl who went through a tragedy and needed to find her way in life again - throw in a Hunky Handyman, a Witty Housemate, an Adoring Uncle and some cute puppies - you have a sweet, touching romance that will make you feel all warm inside.
Great Novel Lori - Looking forward to more of your works.
