      Updated: This book is no longer free, but at $0.99 it's a steal. I did a re-read recently and fell in love with the Colorado High Country all over again. amzn/2hqpRPvOriginal review:A great locale, amazing characters, and an exciting, romantic, VERY sexy story kick off Pamela Clare's new Colorado High Country series. From start to finish, Barely Breathing is a winner - which was not a surprise to me because everything Ms. Clare writes is awesome, so this was bound to be too! ---- If you're alrea [...]

      Brilliantly perfect!I just finished reading a book that touched my heart deeply. The story was thoroughly wonderful that I don’t think my review can do it justice. I have so many things running through my mind but it’s hard to put into words. Despite my high expectations, this book still managed to blow me away in a similar way to how Pamela Clare’s other works did me. Barely Breathing is everything I could ever ask for in my reading experience.This is a second-chance love story between Au [...]

      4 StarsI need to start this review off by saying what a treat it was to read a new Pamela Clare novel. I adore the I-Team series (Unlawful Contact has a permanent spot on my favorites list) but I don’t think I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading a straight contemporary romance by this author before. Barely Breathing, the first book in Ms. Clare’s new Colorado High Country series, managed to take care of that problem for me. Lexi Jewell and Austin Taylor grew up together in the small mounta [...]

      5 - "We care about our own in this town." Stars!Barely Breathing was a book of firsts for me in that it’s the start of a new series, and it was also the first book I have read by Pamela Clare. Hugely impressed are the first words that come to mind. I have seen a lot of positive feedback for this author over the years, so it was nice to read what all the fuss has been about, and I was not disappointed.Lexi Jewell and Austin Taylor are your perfect couple for a second-chance romance. As teens, t [...]

      And Pamela Clare owns another romance genre. When she announced she was writing a new contemporary romance series set in a small Colorado town and focusing on rescue workers in the mountains, I was thrilled. I don't always love contemporary romance, but I figured the odds of Pamela Clare getting it right were pretty good.I was right to trust. The rescue and climbing elements were well researched and integrated organically which made the story come to life on a level beyond the romance. The setti [...]

      2.5 It's not you, it's me.I think I'm in a bit of a weird moment when it comes to books, I just can't seem to find something I really enjoy. As a result, a book that everyone loved wasn't so much fun for me.It was boring! The book was way too long, all of their problems could have been solved so much faster. Maybe most people love all the descriptions and stuff but I, for one, just skip them. I didn't really care about all those details. So, yes, I skipped, like, 1/3 of the book.Ah well, on to t [...]

      Originally posted on The Book NymphoLexie Jewel returns home to Scarlet, Colorado when her father's marriage falls apart and her own career unravels. She left twelve years ago with no intention of ever going back, especially after the heartbreaking end of her relationship with Austin Taylor, now a park ranger and member of the Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. Both blame the other but neither really wanted it to end. At first I didn't think this story was going to be all that interesting [...]

      2.5 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Lexi couldn't wait to leave her hometown in the dust after graduation but that also meant leaving her high school sweetheart Austin behind. Their breakup crushed them both and twelve years later, the feelings are still there. When Lexi's work life goes up in flames and her dad having a breakdown after his wife leaves him has her returning to Scarlet Spr [...]

      What was it about Lexi that got to him like this? How did she make him want her so badly that he could never get enough? She was an addiction, an obsession, a disease. Now this is my kind of second chance romance!!! Second chance romances are not a favorite of mine, but when it’s done right, like this book, I love it.Lexi and Austin were teenagers when they fell in love, and broke each other’s hearts. They were way too young to realise and appreciate what they had, and now it is twelve years [...]

      The first book in Pamela Clare's Colorado High Country series. Lexi Jewell returns to her home town of Scarlett Springs, Colorado, to help her dad. Not that her dad wants her help but since she lost her job and her boyfriend she has the time. Almost immediately she encounters Austin Taylor, the "boy" who broke her heart twelve years before. Austin is not a boy any longer. He is part of the Search and Rescue team.First off I will start by saying this cannot be compared to her I-Team series. That [...]

      Following a long line of her top-rated books, Pamela Clare debuts a new series with a great mixture of her witty dialogues, wonderfully drawn characters, breathless Colorado mountaintops, and a brand new team of search & rescuers – the SAR Team – all rolled into a second chance at love romance. As a huge fan of this author, it was a safe bet that I would immediately be pulled in by her writing skills and intensely researched and detailed storyline. I wasn’t disappointed. I’m in for t [...]

    15. Jacqueline on said:

      Solid read from PC. Even though I REALLY don't like second chance at love stories this was pretty enjoyable and here at least the way they broke up was different. I appreciated that they were adult about discussing it and accepting that they both held part of the blame although him a bit more than her.I found all the climbing details dense dense dense. I skimmed them. The rest of the story was well done and the HEA believable. There were an awful lot of secondary characters though. I know this i [...]

      Barely Breathing is my first book by Pamela Clare and, whilst enjoyable enough I have to admit I'm a little on the fence over it. "he’d been her first serious boyfriend, her first lover, her first heartbreak."This could well be a case of it's not you it's me, I've had an outstanding couple of weeks with my reads, but this just seemed a little steady going. There's no denying that Austin and Lexi burn the sheets; they're very sexy together and I did like them, as I did the setting and the secon [...]

      I love Pamela Clare. It's been awhile since I've read her, actually. I always tend to compare authors to themselves, and for me, this wasn't a favorite of hers. It was a sweet contemporary, nothing standout until the end, when we get a little suspense. It reminded me of a Jill Shalvis novel, an author which I like but don't love. The rest of the town is intriguing. I loved the obvious love of Colorado and the research and effort she put into search and rescue and climbing. Will definitely read t [...]

      An awesome start to a new series! Pamela Clare delivers a flawlessly written scorching hot story; with characters you can’t help but fall in love with. Belay! Belay! I know this is a review, but I want to share a little background about how I fell in love with Pamela Clare’s books. A few years ago, my brain started feeling thirsty for books, I was used to reading paranormal young adult books, crime and suspense stories, but never really got into the romance scene until I began using . It cam [...]

      4.5 Stars! What can I say, it is a Pamela Clare, who as usual done an awesome job of bringing us some contemporary romance. Of course we have a whole new team of hotties to go through as well as a charming new town. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

    21. Talltree on said:

      Okay small town second chance romance. Between the climbing subculture, the h's family drama plus the random kidnapping, there wasn't much page time devoted to romance. The romance also seemed rather shallow and too convenient. Meh.3.5 stars

    22. Sharon on said:

      Here are some of my thoughts:• OK, I absolutely haaaate second-chance-romance, but this is honestly one of the very few times that worked for me. I think it is because in this case, they both made mistakes, and the girl was the one who wanted to chase after her dreams and go elsewhere. I find second chance romance to be imbued with bitterness and too many flashback, but fortunately, this book has not gone down that path. It feels positive as they work through the relationship, and everything i [...]

      4.5 stars When I found out Pamela Clare was starting a new series, I was like:I was so sad when she finished the I-team series, which is my all time favorite series in this genre. Her books are well-researched, really well written, and the plot is always interesting. I love finishing one of her novels knowing I learned something about a certain subject, whether it's Indian culture or drug trafficking, Clare manages to create amazing characters, awesome love stories, sexy times, and still manage [...]

      Oh my! I am in a minority here. I love Pamela Clare but this one was a bit of a meh for me. I went by all those excited reviews before picking it up but sadly it did not do much for me. It’s a usual coming back home and hooking up with your high school sweetheart again trope-story. The h had left her Colorado town after school, breaking up with the H and breaking his heart in the bargain, and mostly never looking back. She has some family issues-a long dead mom, an uncaring father and a snarky [...]

      05/24/2016 --I haven't read a Pamela Clare book in for "freaking -- ever." I liked this, but didn't think it great. Why you ask? I think it lacked some of the depth I've come to expect from a "Pamela Clare" story. It was pretty simple. Two old lovers who meet years later. Both are in different places in life. I liked how the author highlighted rescue teams, rock-climbing, and the skill required. I don't know about this, but it seemed pretty authentic. The romance was pretty predictable, but nice [...]

      ARC was generously provided by the publisher via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Rating ~ 3.5 - 4 starsI am a huge fan of Pamela Clare's writing and her I-team series. When I heard she was starting a new series I was over the moon. This is slightly different to her I-team series which was a lot more action and suspense based but the writing, the romance and the plot still flowed beautifully.Austin Taylor a former football player and is now a mountain ranger with some abandonment issue [...]

    27. Suzanne on said:

      Rounded up to 4 stars for the detailed and evocative description of the Colorado setting, the interesting (and large) cast of secondary characters established in this new series premier book, and the well-researched mountain and animal rescue background. However, the H/h came across as emotionally too young for their ages (thirtyish), and acted more like adolescents than adults throughout. Distracting for this reader!

      Anticipation is a great thing - especially when it comes with a new book from a favourite author. Good start to what is going to be a great series. Looking forward to more from the team of Colorado High.

      ARC provided by the Author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I love The I-Team books by Pamela Clare. This is certainly a change. This book is billed as a "Contemporary Romance". I don't read that genre and when I do, the books are usually "Contemporary Crap", full of angst, TSTL moments and self pity. Not my idea of a fun read at all. Pamela Clare manages to skirt most of the issues that plague this genre and product a wonderful second chance love story. She just can't help it, I'm [...]
