Catch Your Breath

Catch Your Breath
The O’Learys Book #4
By: Shannyn Schroeder
Releasing July 3rd, 2014


As kids they steered clear of one another–but now a beautiful, well-connected reporter and a sexy, driven detective are all grown-up and on the job. . .
Moira O’Leary’s work as a reporter gives her access to some of Chicago’s swankiest soirées. She knows how to navigate the jet-set crowd, and her style and confidence help her blend right in. But when her childhood crush starts popping up at posh events, her poise begins to falter–until she realizes she has the upper hand in a high-stakes game of secrets and seduction. . .
Jimmy O’Malley has always tried to avoid his friend Liam’s little sister. Something about Moira spelled trouble. But he’s out of his element working undercover in Chicago’s high society, and Moira is his ticket to the inner circle. As sparks begin to fly–and their chemistry heats up–Moira gets dangerously close to his investigation. Will Jimmy be forced to push her away to keep her safe–or will they surrender to a desire that could leave them breathless?

Review rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: What do you get when you put together a reporter and a man working undercover? Oh, and
add to the fact that they knew the other growing up and tried to stay away from each other. now theyr paths cross again, and things are A LOT different. Oh boy...this could be trouble, don't ya think?

Moira and Jimmy are intriguing, believable characters. Their chemistry is explosive! There's a great balance of romance, mystery, suspense, and tension. I breezed through this story, eager for what happens next. The author has a great writing style-the pacing is strong, witty dialog which is also realistic. I loved the chemistry between the main characters. I'm going to have to look for other books by the author for sure!

Author Info  
Shannyn is a former English teacher, who now works as a part-time editor while raising her three kids.
Even though she wrote from high school through college (mostly poetry), she’d never considered a career as an author. Writing fell by the wayside as she focused her energy on creating lesson plans and new and fabulous ways to torment her teen students. One group in particular dubbed her “The Torture Master,” a title she carried into motherhood.
After the birth of baby number two, Shannyn resigned from teaching and fell in love with reading romance novels. She read so many books so quickly that her husband teased, “If you’re going to read so many damn books, why don’t you just write one?”
So she did.
That first book is safely buried on her hard drive, but the process set Shannyn on the path to where she is today—agented with a debut ebook coming out with Kensington in late 2012.
She is recovering from her Diet Coke addiction, fears putting her foot in her mouth on social media, and has a renewed appreciation for the bad girls of the world.
