Only to be released and promised he’d come back for me…
My given name is Sofia Rose Heart and I am the headstrong daughter of an organized crime boss. But, I am also known as beautiful, by my best friend and soulmate, Caelan O’Reily. He is my strength, courage, heart, childhood memories, and even the breath that I breathe at times to keep me alive.
My name is Caelan O’Reily. What would you do when you are trying, so desperately, to hold onto the woman you love, but she keeps pushing you away? You fight, that’s what you do. I have loved my beautiful girl since we were kids. I have waited years for her to acknowledge our love, and for in short glimmer of time, I thought she had.
I’m done waiting.
She is my girl.
She always has been.
She always will be.

Series: Heart Series #3
There are moments in life we all regret.
Mine would be the second I decided I needed to be alone.
That decision changed the course of my journey.
But was it for the better or for worse? That’s yet to be seen.
I have to fight through the smoke, emerge through the dense fog in my brain, peel away the layers, and face what’s right in front of me.
I need to do this on my own.
Fighting for her is what I was born to do.
Healing her is what my heart was made for.
Protecting her is my job.
Waiting for her… is what I will always do.
I will fight for my girl.
With my girl.
Right beside my girl.
Every step of the way.
Breathing On My Own is the conclusion of Caelan and Sofia’s story, but not the end of their journey.

He is the King of his world, ruling with a firm hand.
Unknowingly we both fight for our freedom.
He needs the freedom to breathe, whereas I fight for my freedom to live.

Secrets have been buried.
Lies have been told.
Betrayal is at the highest degree.
My real name is Jessica Winthrop. A.K.A The Queen of Hearts. I am an underground poker player. I don’t play in the comfortable basements of family homes with the ‘good ‘ol boys from around the neighborhood. No, I play in the deep depth of dark basements against men that will slit my throat at the turn of a card or the drop of a chip.
Since the tender age of four, my decisions were made by my mentor, my father, that is, until he became my adversary. His decision making came to a screeching halt when I turned seventeen. Three years later, I had to make some of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make, but I made them and I’ve stuck by them.
Six years later, those same decisions are now coming back to haunt me.
