The first kiss I stole.
The second, he claimed.
This is forbidden. This is taboo. And this is a scandal that could drown us both.
My name is Waverly Owens, and I’m in love with my high school swim coach.
I’ve got a crush. He’s gorgeous and brooding, with arms that make my knees week, abs that make me forget how to breath, and good lord does he fill out a swimsuit in all the right ways.
The only problem? He’s ten years older, my mother is his boss, and, oh right, he’s my high school swim coach.
Camden Kirby is what you might call “x-rated” hot. He’s too gorgeous—certainly too gorgeous to be coaching girls high school swimming. Crushing on my coach is one thing. But when I end up creating a fake dating app profile specifically to, well, secretly seduce him? Well, now we’re playing in the deep end.
There’s too much at stake for us to be this reckless, but once we’ve crossed that line, there’s no swimming back, no matter how wrong this is.
I’ve got homework and college apps, he’s got demons, and scars. I’m in over my head, but I want to drown in him. I want to lose myself in him.
This is a story love, lust, and diving in head-first.
…You better take a deep breath.
Each of the Winchester Academy books are completely standalone stories, with no cliffhangers.
As with all my books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

    Breathless by Madison Faye is another excellent book by this author.
    A super hot sexy quick read with a HEA.
    Camden & Waverly are great characters with amazing chemistry.
    A well written older man / younger woman romance with lots of heat.

  2. Susan Stegemann

    Madison Faye does it again with this great series! I loved it and couldn’t put it down! Highly recommend you read this fast paced and smutty series! The characters were so believable and sexy! Camden and Waverley were just great together! So hot!

  3. Cassie Gregory

    The title of this book “Breathless” is so perfect, because that is exactly how you will feel while reading. Madison did a wonderful job with each of these books and giving each character their own unique story. Camden and Waverly are fantastic together. Even though Camden is really hard headed in the beginning it all makes since once you find out his back story. But once he finally gives in ….. OMG you need a pool to jump into to cool you off. This book is fire! I loved it and again I am left sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next in line.

    Just when you think Madison Faye’s next book couldn’t get any better than the previous one, she goes an writes Breathless, and you are once again left a satisfied puddle of woman. This fast-paced steamy forbidden taboo romance has it all… drama, twists, a physical attraction that is white hot, unstoppable desire, a bit of heartache, burn up the pages scenes that are steamy and delicious, love, and a happily ever after.

    I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

  5. VikkiB82

    Another fantastically hot book to devour. They seem to be getting better and better. I loved the pull of both Waverly & Camden, they just couldn’t not be together because when they were it was explosive and nothing could tear your eyes away from the magic they were creating. Madison Faye has done such amazing job with this series, I never want it to end!

  6. Letitia bennion

    This one was different from her past books in this set. Not in the way of it not being a passionate hot story, or a forbidden thing like the others, but that it had more hard hitting items that face teens. We get to see what brougjt Camden to where he is now and his struggles, we also get to see Waverly and her passion to make him hers. Plus the ending was certainly a surprise! You will not be disappointed in this book! I know I wasn’t!

    Can deceit lead to true love?

    Waverly is an eighteen year old student at Winchester Academy and in love with her swim coach, Camden. She fools him into thinking she’s older by using a hookup app and getting him to meet her at a bar three towns away. When Camden figures out its Waverly, he truly tries to stay away. But she is determined and relentless, the only other problem with this is her mother is the vice principal at Winchester Academy. So this taboo tale just got a heck of a lot more intriguing. It’s a great read and I highly recommend it!

    Breathless had me “Breathless”!! Camden and Waverly’s story has all the feels and steam and age gap taboo romance that Madison Faye is known for. With this being a teacher/student/older man/ younger woman forbidden romance that is super sexy and steamy read, full of sizzling chemistry and fabulous storyline. Madison Faye just keeps getting hotter and even more addictive and better than ever!! What a thrilling read. I can’t wait for book 7.

    My Rating: 4.5 stars *******

  10. Lilu

    This is a voluntary ARC review. OMG! I freaking loved this book! This Winchester series keep getting hotter by the book. I am truly fascinated by how she can come up with these books, all so different yet fitting together. The epilogue was just perfection. It was the HEA I was hoping for, leaving me smiling, a satisfied sigh, saying she did it again, as I stroll off to cold shower hell, just because I gladly got Fayed!!!

  11. Tonja

    Loved it! I love that it has some hard tough life situations mixed in with this hot love fest. Makes it seem real and hard and so sexy! Just when you think you’ve picked a favorite Madison Faye book she smacks ya on the a$$ and says “think again”! Whew!

    I received an advanced copy for a honest review.

  12. Vivian C

    Time to get wet!!

    This is book 6 in the “Winchester Academy” series and in my opinion one of the best. That’s a true feat since all six are wonderful. I loved how Waverly knew what she wanted and was determined to get it. Sure, she may not have thought it through completely in the beginning but who could blame her? Camden was one HOT specimen!! The visual of him in a swimsuit dripping wet…..OH BABY!!! Can’t wait for the next story.

    *I received an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book which I am voluntarily reviewing*

  13. Aunt G

    This is another deliciously naughty and hot and steamy book for this forbidden romance series. I liked Waverly and Camden so much as a couple. I thought they worked so well together even with the age difference. I found the sexting and the intimate scenes that these two shared to be simply scorching!! The storyline has enough drama, tension, emotional turmoil, passion and angst to keep all your attention as you read through this story. Can not wait for book #7!

  14. Lene

    Talk about diving in head-first. I loved this standalone about Winchester Academy, truth be told…I loved all of the books in this series.

    This one is steamy, intriguing and fun.

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book.

  15. Marlene_D

    Waverly Owens is the daughter of the vice principle at Winchester Academy and the star of the swim team. She turned 18 and registered on a site for hookups, saying she was older and giving screen name. She got a response from Camden, also using a screen name, not initially realizing the response was from her swim coach, the brooding, handsome Coach Kirby…and of course they are drawn together and begin a torrid affair, but you will need to read this steamy romp to see what happens…I voluntarily read this book through an Advanced Reader Copy.

  16. Tracey7191

    Wow another great read the series with plenty of chemistry. Excellently written with great characters and comes with plenty of steamy moments. I love the intensity and I love that there’s no cheating.

  17. stephanie gregory

    I’m voluntarily writing a review for ARC I received and this book was so. Freakin. Hot!!!!! I mean how they got together and how they can’t stay away from each other?!?? It can’t get better then that. Highly recommend this book series and Madison Faye in general!

  18. Tai Nelson-Barnes

    Jesus, I love Madison. She has upped her game on her new series and I am loving it. Waverly is a just aging eighteen-year-old girl who has had a crush on her swim coach for a while now. She takes every step she can to make sure she finds out what he does on his time off. When she decides to sign up for the same online dating app as him and talk to Camden he has no idea he is really sending naughty pictures to Waverly.

    Camden didn’t ever think of Waverly in a sexual way until he started getting pictures of a girl on a dating app. When they decided to meet up one night Camden is blown away by the adult looking child that is in front of him. Now that the cat is out of the bag will these two be able to stay away from each other?

    Camden and Waverly are awesome characters and it should be read.
