When Manhattan Psychologist Olivia Burke receives an invitation to present her research on trauma in servicemen in Seattle, she is determined to turn the business trip into the start of healing her own traumatized heart.

FDNY Firefighter Owen Maxwell is an unapologetic playboy who spends his days saving lives and his nights breaking hearts. He puts his life on the line every day and is skeptical about doing the same with his heart. But when he meets Olivia, the girl with the shattered spirit–sparks fly.

They share a hot weekend in Seattle and discover that they want to share so much more.

Both Olivia and Owen are in need of help mending their hearts. What remains to be seen is if they can do that for each other, or if they are so damaged they go up in smoke.

Rescue Breathing is the journey of two lost souls, trying to breathe new life into each other without losing themselves along the way.

This is the first book I've read by Zoe Norman and the first book in the Breathe Series. 
I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.  
As much as I loved this cover, what prompted me to review it was the blurb.  I mean who come one who doesn't love a book with a hunky firefighter in it, but it was the female character which grabbed it for, well her occupation actually. Yes, I do have weird ways of picking books, but it was well worth it.

The story surrounds Olivia, a Manhattan Psychologist, who is invited to present her research on trauma in servicemen in Seattle. And Owen, a FDNY firefighter and unaplogetic playboy who spends his days saving lives and his nights breaking hearts.

Olivia is determined to use this business trip to heal her own traumatized heart. Owen is skeptical about putting his heart on the line the same way he does everyday with his life. 

Well until he meets Olivia that is!!!

A chance meeting, in an airport bar on all places and Olivia and Own have one very H.O.T and STEAMY weekend fling (or so they thought). I'm fanning myself just thinking about those scenes in all of those places!! 
The club scene left me blushing beet red, which in turn has my husband asking what had gotten me so hot under the collar!! The prude in me (which I'm slowly trying to lose) came out and said absolutely nothing!!!

Can Owen mend Olivia's heart? Will Olivia be the one to get Owen to put his heart on the line? You'll have to read to find out....

The book was funny (laughter is always welcome), sexy, left me with more then a few tears which was easily remedied with an absolutely swoon-worthy male character! -sigh-
Firefighters, (more specifically Owen :D) are slowly creeping up the ladder as some of my favourite book boyfriends!!!

**** 1/2 Stars for an awesome way to start a series. Can't wait for Book 2
