From the Cover:
Strangers in reality, inseparable in dreams…
After years of suffocating under her boss’s scrutiny, whale biologist Zoe Morgan finally lands a job as director of a tagging project in Hervey Bay, Australia. Success Down Under all but guarantees her the promotion of a lifetime, and Zoe won’t let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. Not the whale voices she suddenly hears in her head, not the ex who won’t take no for an answer, and especially not the gorgeous figment of her imagination who keeps saving her from the fiery hell of her dreams.
Gavin Cassidy hasn’t been called to help a human Wyldling in over a year, which is fine by him. Still blaming himself for the death of his partner, he keeps the guilt at bay by indulging in every excess his rock star persona affords. That is, until he’s summoned to protect Zoe from hungry Fyre Elementals and learns his new charge is the key to restoring order in the dying Dreaming. He never expects to fall for the feisty Dr. Morgan…nor does he realize he may have to sacrifice the woman he loves to save an entire country.

Zoe Morgan is following her dream as a whale biologist and finally out from under the thumb of her one time lover and boss, she finds the freedom she needs. It's never been hard for Zoe to bring the whales to her, making her tagging job a little easier to complete. Sometimes, it almost seems as if Zoe can "talk" to the whales and they can talk back. Her problem is that to do her job, she's shut herself off from the rest of her life, can she continue to live this way?
Gavin Cassidy is a rock star, real life. He's been shying away from his life in the Dreaming, wanting to refuse his destiny... but until he finds Zoe's escape into the Dreaming. Can this Wylding be exactly what he needs? From the first time together, he realizes she could be something more. Then, when she lets herself go in what is her dreamland, and his reality, she turns out to be the lover he can't live without, she can put out the fire that burns within his soul. But, what will happen if she finds out that her dreams was really reality?
Inhale by Kendall Grey tells the story of the Elementals, earth, fire, water, air, and how it's all interconnected with life. What Zoe doesn't know is she is going to play a bigger part in this Dreaming that just as an imaginary dream lover whom she finds harder and harder to live without. How can she become so dependent of her dream life? And when she discovers her dream lover is real, and not only real, but a rock star, she's blown away. How can all this be possible?
Inhale starts out as a story about Zoe's need to save the whales, to protect them from the hunters, it's the driving force in her life. Then, she meets Gavin, her dream lover, and her life changes. Her drive to save the whales is just as strong, maybe stronger, but so is the need for her dream lover. Inhale starts out as a hellacious ride into the unknown and end up being a burning hot romance between a rock star and a whale biologist that only gets better the further you get into the storyline. If you like a rocking hard romance, Elementals in all their various shapes and forms, then pick up Inhale, you won't be sorry.
Five out five fairy kisses for this reader.
I picked up Inhale after meeting Kendell Grey at RT2012, she was awesome and I enjoy supporting her efforts to help our extra-large cousins. All proceeds go whale programs, what a great cause. All opinions expressed are my own.
