*[Blog Tour Review & Giveaway] Catch Your Breath (The O'Leary's #4) by Shannyn Schroeder

Catch Your Breath (The O'Leary's, #4)
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?

I love Shannyn Schroeder.
I really do, not it a creepy way but her romances are quickly becoming some of my favourites to read. Earlier this year I read the third book in this series and absolutely loved the romance between Moira's brother and his girlfriend so I was so stoked to sign up for the tour for Moira's book since I loved her in Something to Prove and wanted to see her find the right guy.
Moira is just one of those characters that I felt immediately kinship for. She's sweet and caring and loves her family to bits and pieces and absolutely loves her career but she knows something's missing. All her friends are getting hitched, having kids and she's left out but she doesn't seem so down about it. She didn't think it was The Moira Show, but she didn't take crap either, especially from Jimmy.
Jimmy was your typical cop, but with a really sweet side too. He's trying to get to the bottom of a case he's working on but his friend's kid sister is the one person who can help him, but he's very unwilling to put her at risk. I just loved him to bits. He was smooth without being creepy and was still a mans man with a soft side.
The chemistry between the two of them was fantastic. I'm talking nuclear here. I loved the passion between the two of them and the fact that there was the added suspense due to Jimmy's investigation really solidified the two as a couple for me and brought the heat out more.
All in all, this was a superb romance. It had great characters who played off each other well and were good not only as a couple, but as individual characters. I had fun catching up with the other O'Leary's I met in the last book I read and I thought this was a fast paced sizzling romance and shouldn't be missed at all.
If you love contemporary romance novels with some suspense, some witty dialogue between your two main characters and lots of heat (but not overly done). Give this one a try. I haven't read the first two books in this series so I think it's safe to say you can read this one on it's own.

Author Bio:
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.
