Can't Hardly Breathe - Gena Showalter Book four in the Original Heartbreakers brings us the first of the next three damaged men, this time ex-military instead of ex-foster care. We met Daniel in Jessie Kay’s book. He is her really good friend and he and his two pals run a security firm from Strawberry Valley. Daniel has been using Dorothea’s inn as his personal stomping ground with his dates. We met Dorothea in Hallow’s book. She is a sweet curvaceous beauty who hasn’t had a lot of good fortune in her life. She has loved Daniel since he was a senior and her a sophomore in high school, but she has kept her distance because she doesn’t believe he could truly like her when he seems to go for stick thin tall blondes and she in nothing like that. Daniel does find her attractive, but her shyness has caused him to keep his distance; however, when she shows up at his hotel door in nothing but a trench coat, he can’t believe his eyes and he behaves poorly. He almost ruined any chance with her from the get go, but he works to rectify the situation pronto. I enjoyed watching them grow together, learn about each other, and become stronger individuals because of their relationship with each other. This series is just so enjoyable, real and down to earth, yet still has the tense emotional strife that pulls the reader in and keeps you turning the pages. Love it and am ready for more.

Can’t Hardly Breathe By Gena Showalter $1.99
Can't Hardly Breathe - Gena Showalter

Bullied in high school, Dorothea Mathis’s past is full of memories she’d rather forget. But there’s one she can’t seem to shake—her long-standing crush on former army ranger Daniel Porter. Now that the sexy bad boy has started using her inn as his personal playground, she should kick him out…but his every heated glance makes her want to join him instead.

Daniel returned to Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma, to care for his ailing father and burn off a little steam with no strings attached. Though he craves curvy Dorothea night and day, he’s as marred by his past as she is by hers. The more he desires her, the more he fears losing her. 

But every sizzling encounter leaves him desperate for more, and soon Daniel must make a choice: take a chance on love or walk away forever.

Can't Hardly Breathe - Gena Showalter

The Original Heartbreakers, Book 4

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series

The Characters:

Dorothea Mathis:
Daniel Porter:
Holly, Ryan, Brock, Jude:

The Story:

I had a hard time sticking to the book but I couldn’t turn off the audio. I think my contacts may be partially to blame. Haven’t been able to get into reading since I got the new script. Anyway after initial reading delays I found myself quite addicted to the story. I liked Dorothea’s determination to change her life. I like Daniel’s devotion to Thea, once he pulled his head out of his butt. I also like his devotion to his father… and the pups. I love the way they tease each other and “negotiate”. I also love his friendship with Jesse Kay and her readiness to kick his butt.

The Random Thoughts:

The Score Card:


3.5 Stars

Can't Hardly Breathe (The Original Heartbreakers) by Gena Showalter
Can't Hardly Breathe - Gena Showalter


For all the survivors of spiteful bullies and heartbreakingly cruel jokes.  To every person with a beautiful heart, but a tortured soul. For every hero in disguise looking for salvation.  Ms. Showalter wrote Can't Hardly Breathe for you.  Dorothea is the girl that longed to fit in, but never quite managed to do so.  Daniel is the boy that is beautiful both inside and out, yet has never felt good enough.  Gena Showalter is good at stirring up emotion.  It's inspirational tales of courage like this one that keep her name on people's lips and her stories in their hearts. Ugliness is a state of mind, not a physical trait.
