From the Cover:
Her dreams brought them together, but reality could tear them apart…
The man of Zoe Morgan’s dreams isn’t only real, he’s interested. In her. But her boss wants her too, and is leveraging his unsolicited advances with the threat of blocking the huge promotion she's after. When he places a spy on her research team, the intense stranger discovers more than he should, and Zoe fears hiding a relationship with Gavin Cassidy from her boss is the least of her worries. The whale she must protect has been marked for death, and Zoe's old enemy Scarlet is eager to deliver the killing blow. To both of them.
Australia’s Sentinels must find and lock the door into the Dreaming before Fyre Elementals launch another attack on innocent dreamers. But corruption and distrust abound, and Gavin believes someone on the Sentinel council is in league with the Fyres. As he reluctantly embraces his new role as council leader, Gavin must not only keep Zoe safe from Scarlet's vengeful clutches, but organize a Sentinel defense strong enough to prevent a full-blown Elemental war—with a traitor fighting by his side.

Zoe has become entwined in the sleep world, the Dreaming, discovering her true purpose and her ability to communicate with whales, becoming one with the world that has meant so much to her life. Then, her dream lover comes to life, and not only is he real and a rock star, but he wants her as much as she wants him. But along with the discovery of the real life rock star, comes the knowledge of the Elementals, in particular, one Frye Elemental that would like to burn her to the ground, along with her love for Gavin. She'll stoop to any level to destroy his love and crush Zoe under her heel.
Gavin suffers the loss of his mentor, but at least he has Zoe in his life, if he can keep her alive, because his one-time user and want-to-be lover, Scarlet, Frye Elemental, wants Zoe out of his life, and if she has to kill Zoe to do it, she will. But, maybe she only has to kill their love. It becomes a desperate chase to keep the love growing inside Zoe and Gavin.
Exhale by Kendall Grey is the continuing story of our hero and heroine, Gavin Cassidy and Zoe Morgan. Zoe has discovered her true purpose, but her boss keeps trying to step into the picture, he won't let her be. And, he's decided that he has to have Zoe for himself. But, Zoe has grown up a lot since the days when she thought herself in love with him, she's found real love with Gavin, and she doesn't want anyone else. Gavin struggles through his new responsibilities, the Sentinels need a new leader, and he's it. Not only that, but the Frye Elementals are trying to take over the Dreaming and an Elemental War is looming. The only thing keeping him sane is Zoe.
Exhale is an excellent addition to the Just Breathe trilogy. Zoe is a kickass heroine who has come into her own rights, and Gavin is the rock star of her life, if she can keep their love alive and herself breathing. The Elementals want to use Zoe and if they can't, they'd just as soon see her out of the picture. But, maybe, she's the one person who can stop the looming war? Gavin is drowning in a sea of need, the Sentinels need him, the Dreaming calls to him, the Wyldings need a savior, but what about what he needs, Zoe? And Scarlet will do anything to have Gavin back in her demented clutches. If you want an exciting, heart pounding ride that will be you turning pages well into the night, pick up Inhale and Exhale, both are excellent additions to the Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance realms. Warning, hot spicy sex that's hard to stop reading!! Kendall Grey is a gifted storyteller, loud and proud, outrageous in her tales at times, but it makes the reading all that much better. Could not put Exhale down!!
Five out of five fairy kisses for this reader.
I picked this book up for my own reading pleasure, and loved every minute of time, reading it in record time, thanks Kendall Grey for another excellent read and continued support of the whales! All opinions expressed are my own.
