Chasing Air by DeLaine Roberts

Accidentally marrying into the mob, Dr. Judith Bellonte Donati staged her death with the help of the FBI before the hired hit-man could finish the job. Now with a new life and a new name, Dr. Makenzie Holder struggles daily with the loss of connection with her family and the constant lurking of old ghosts from her past.

Gorgeous millionaire developer Jonathan Bain offers her everything she wants in the way of a family… but his demanding demeanor is a reminder of the life she left behind. But can Makenzie overlook her haunted past and give Jonathan a chance at redemption, or will a chance encounter in the ER with Detective Ryler Buchanan lead to the love of a lifetime?

Chasing Air: A hot romance with a side of turbulence!

5 stars
This book had everything you could want in a great read. I loved all the characters and they were well written. The whole story was well written and easy to follow and understand. It was so well written that it was easy to see it play like a movie in my head as I read. It starts out with Makenzie aka Mak working in the ER. If I had not read the synopsis I would not have known it had anything to do with the mob or her running for her life. She just seemed like any other woman who struggled with a past, a career, and wanting a life. Then she meets the sexy but arragont detective Ryler. You can tell they are both strong characters but you feel the chemistry they have. But wait!!!! Then comes the sexy and rich Jonathon Bain. I can see were Mak would have a hard time picking which one she wanted. This book had me so captivated and entriged that I was halfway through it and didn't even realize the time it was. Literally kept me up all night wanting to know what was going to happen. Then just when I thought it was safe to put it down and sleep for a few hours I get sucked back in and then just have to finish the last few pages. It was wonderful, sweet, romantic, thrilling and kept me on the edge of my seat. Absolutely LOVED it!

She approached the front door to knock, but suddenly shuddered with nerves. Her brain was telling her this was dangerous territory, but her heart wouldn’t let her run. She knew that any involvement with an officer was a huge risk. She turned to walk back to her car when the front door opened.
“Are you running away, Makenzie?”
Shocked and unprepared, she turned back to him, stammering for her words.
“N, n, no, I left my phone in the car. I thought I would grab it and my charger before I came in.”
She knew her nervous behavior was obvious. But looking down, she realized she was busted.
“Makenzie, you’re holding your phone in your hand. Now, be honest. Were you just going to leave and stand me up?”
By this time, he had walked out onto the front porch with her, holding a hot pad in his hand.
“Busted. Yep, I was ’bout to chicken out, Ryler. I’m not very good with the dating thing. Out of my comfort zone. I’m sorry, I’m a schmuck, I can’t do this. I should go.”
She turned back towards her car only to have Ryler follow her. When he grabbed her arm, it startled her and she jerked back.
“Don’t ever grab me again.”

Amazon best-selling author in Contemporary Romance and Romantic Suspense. Whew, I can't believe that just happened.
Writing has been a long hidden passion. When my grad school professors suggested that I write for my own pleasure, I was skeptical and not certain of the vulnerability. However, I'm so grateful I took the plunge and I will never look back.
With the first two books released in the Running Series, I'm looking forward to releasing Chasing Air, a romantic suspense novel in October and the 3rd installment of The Running Series, My Confession, will follow in December.
Thank you to the readers who have read, shared and reached out. It means the world to me.
