Take My Breath Away by Ali Ryecart - 5 Stars (Silver Foxes Book 2)

 I watched James flirt with Perry all the way through Commitment Issues (Silver Foxes Book 1) and I couldn't wait to see if Ali Ryecart would put them together or find them different partners in future installments... fortunately I didn't have to wait too long to find out in Take My Breath Away

From the Author

Rescuing a beautiful boy wasn’t supposed to be on my Friday night To Do list…


Perry’s my oldest friend’s young, sweet as sugar, totally adorable Executive. Assistant, so when I find him slumped over a table, blind drunk and alone in the corner of a bar, not rescuing him isn’t an option. I can give him everything he needs to help him become the man he wants to be. But there’s one thing I can’t give him, and they’re the promises I always break.


James came to my rescue when I needed him most, but any secret fantasy the sexy silver fox with the come to bed eyes could be my Knight in Shining Armour is only good for fairy tales. James lives his life free of ties and commitments, whereas all I want is to commit to being entangled.

My review:

While Take My Breath Away can be read as a standalone, I think you will enjoy the story more if you read Commitment Issues first - it's where you meet both James and Perry and get to know them as supporting characters, along with Jasper the farting dog... that being said, was Take My Breath Away worth waiting for?  100% Yes!!  

Right off the bat we see that James is already having a bit of a life changing epiphany even before he runs into Perry on his drunken bender and takes him home.  I like the elements of friendship, forced proximity and slow burn that start this book off... There is mild angst and lots of stolen glances while both James and Perry come to terms with who they are and what they want.. and it takes them quite a while to sort through!  As a character, I especially love James, who seems so in charge and put together, while underneath he's as confused and insecure as the rest of us!  This book is perfect for your ever growing TBR Pile!

"Take My Breath Away is a slow burn, sweet with heat age gap MM romance. Expect forced proximity, a touch of angst, a secret crush, plenty of snark  -  and adventures with a farting dog."

I am now curious to see if Alfie, the Accountant/Shepherd/??? gets a HEA in a future book...

  1. I always love age-gaps, and especially taking-care-of-the-drunk scenes for some reason, even if its very specific. So this definitely looks exciting! Gonna look to getting it on Kindle!
