Review & Giveaway: Inhale - By Kendall Grey

Author: Kendall Grey


Release Date: 5/1/2012

Purchase Info: Amazon, B&N

Strangers in reality, inseparable in dreams… After years of suffocating under her boss’s scrutiny, whale biologist Zoe Morgan finally lands a job as director of a tagging project in Hervey Bay, Australia. Success Down Under all but guarantees her the promotion of a lifetime, and Zoe won’t let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. Not the whale voices she suddenly hears in her head, not the ex who won’t take no for an answer, and especially not the gorgeous figment of her imagination who keeps saving her from the fiery hell of her dreams. Gavin Cassidy hasn’t been called to help a human Wyldling in over a year, which is fine by him. Still blaming himself for the death of his partner, he keeps the guilt at bay by indulging in every excess his rock star persona affords. That is, until he’s summoned to protect Zoe from hungry Fyre Elementals and learns his new charge is the key to restoring order in the dying Dreaming. He never expects to fall for the feisty Dr. Morgan…nor does he realize he may have to sacrifice the woman he loves to save an entire country.

First Thought: Holy McHottness!!

If there was one thing that I wasn’t expecting going into this book it was Gavin! This should have been the synopsis: “Brodding rocker with tattoos and wrecked past, seeks wholesome female to soothe his aching heart. “

(Oh, oh pick ME!!!)

Diving head first into Inhale was like a breath of fresh air for me, a break away from the true romances I’ve been reading, and giving me a MASSIVE dose of some true adult steaminess. As I met Zoe I love the fact that her background is different from most of the heroines I’ve read about. The passion that she holds for whales is so strong that she’s willing to risk her life for these creatures. 

With her job sending her to Australia, she suddenly finds the same mystery man invading her dreams…..oh but hold on! It’s actually Gavin, who’s been sent to protect her from Fyre Elementals who are suddenly invading, and striking fear, into the dreams of thousands of people. As the Dreaming (basically dream land) becomes more and more “infected” with Fyre the connection that Zoe & Gavin share intensifies with each dream. It seems as though Zoe not only could be the key to Gavin’s heart, but quite possibly the key to saving the whole Dreaming from these nasty little creatures. I will have to say that there is this absolutely raging Fyre bitch named Scarlet, who I just want to punch in the face with a bucket of water & then see her ass evaporate! She was definitely on a, “GET GAVIN BACK AT ALL COSTS”, kind of trip. Though she did see something inside of Gavin, that she wanted to wrap her little hands around, I love the way the story unfolded between both of them…hahaha!

Ok, as I mentioned before this book is slammed with steaminess! Honestly I was taken aback by it, and that’s quite possibly because I, for whatever reason, thought that this was more of a young adult book. 

Silly, silly Jessica…..this book is FAR from it. Twists, turns, beach scenes, element twisting, it seemed this book had a little of everything. Though I was absolutely dying for Zoe & Gavin to meet sooner….yep that’s right all of their interaction in the first ¾’s of the book are in dreams. Which truly added to the build up and created 2 stories sort of. Overall this book really packed a unique punch, I would def. recommend it for anything looking for a little spice in their literary life.
