REVIEW ➼ Breathless by Lex Martin


The boy next door has always made her breathless.

Joey… I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that. I’d call it self-preservation.

I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat to his revolving bedroom door.

My escape plan almost worked. Except I left one thing behind.

Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it back. This time for good.

Logan…I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about everything. Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.

She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest.

When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth. But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living so many lies.

In this safe place in his arms, I may myself a promise. To tell him how I feel. To lay it all out and tell him why I left. Even if I have to let him go in the end.


From the moment Logan Carter was introduced I wanted to read his story. From the moment Joey was introduced as his best friend I wanted their story. The wait was 100% with it. I’ve been on #TeamLoJo from the very beginning and I can’t even begin to describe my emotions while reading their story.

After being heartbroken Joey runs away to Florida, leaving her small Texas town. A few months later she is back for her friend Tori’s wedding, whose soon to be brother in law just so happens to be her best friend, her crush and the one her broke her heart. Logan is clueless as to why Joey left, but he is lost without his best friend, so when she comes back, he is excited but wants to know why she left all those months ago.

LoJo have always had a connection, there was always so much chemistry between them. Throughout the book their connection and bond just seemed to grow. They are each other’s ride or dies, no matter what. I loved that we got more of Tori and Ethan, plus some Kat and Brady throughout the story and could see the love they had for Joey, she was truly a member of the family.

Breathless is an AMAZING best friends to lovers romance that will capture your heart from the very first page to the very last. There were some unexpected twists and turns and things weren’t always easy but no relationship is.

A MUST READ and one of my TOP READS of 2020. Another truly fantastic story by Lex Martin.
