A friends-to-lovers standalone novel from USA Today bestselling author Nina Levine.
This bossy bartender is about to cross a line he knows he shouldn’t. But Callie St James isn’t a woman he can say no to any longer.
Luke Hardy is bossy as fuck. Moody too. But I’ve had a thing for him since we met. I spend half my time arguing with him, and the other half drooling over him. I’m screwed now, though, because I just slept with him and I’ve decided I want a whole lot more than sex. Only problem is, Luke has a secret I never knew. The kind of secret that messes everything up.
Callie St James likes to argue with me over everything. It irritates the hell out of me. She also turns me on like no other woman ever has. There’s only one problem with that. I can’t date her. And now I’ve gone and screwed it all up by sleeping with her.
This story contains all the panty-melting sexiness and alpha goodness that Nina Levine books are known for.

HERE'S A TASTE OF LUKE & CALLIE
I stand and move to him. His back muscles tense when I place my hand on his shoulder. “I want to get to know everything about you, Luke Hardy,” I say and he spins around to face me.
His eyes search mine. “You already know the important bits.”
“No, I don’t.” I rest my hand against his chest. “I don’t know the secrets you keep locked in here. They’re the important bits.”
His intake of breath is sharp and he wraps his hand around mine. His other hand slides around my waist and he pulls me close.
But his lips brush across mine before I can move out of his embrace. His hold is tight and his message is very clear—he’s in charge here and if a kiss is what he wants, a kiss is what he will have.
He surprises me, though, and angles his face away from mine. Still keeping hold of me, he says, “I know we’re doing the friends-only thing for awhile, but a man’s got needs, Callie. If you put your hands on me, you better be prepared for the consequence of that.”
I’m pretty sure my eyes almost pop out of my head. I knew Luke was bossy—oh, boy did I know—but this is a whole new level of bossy. His deep voice vibrates along my skin, scattering goose bumps, while his eyes penetrate my soul. Those intense, green eyes of his will do it to me every time. They’ll cause me to forget everything I’ve ever said or thought and just cling to him for the ride.
He dips his face again and his mouth finds mine. The moment our lips connect sparks of desire burn through me. I’m so damn hot for him and I can’t control myself. I push my body hard against his and open my mouth to him.
He tastes like whiskey and I make a note to buy some just so I can remember this moment forever. I’ve never loved whiskey before, but it may just be my new favourite drink.
This kiss will forever live in my mind. Luke doesn’t simply kiss—he possesses. He takes me mind, body and soul.
In this kiss I find hope.
Hope that he will fight for me.
For the us we both want.
HERE'S WHAT THE REVIEWERS HAD TO SAY
The story, the characters, the steamy scenes… it was all so hot and lusty. It was sassy and alpha-ish, swoon worthy and just made you feel giddy as you read it plus the shock factor of a few surprises also gave some nice twists to the story.~ Escape Reality With Books
Steal My Breath has the signature writing style of Nina Levine with dirty mouths, bossy alpha males and female characters that hold their own. With a little drama, a sprinkling of angst and a huge pinch of steamy shenanigans this has all the ingredients for another magical story from this author.~ Book Obsessed
Wow…. I'm not sure what else to say. Nina has written possibly one of my favorites to date. I loved Callie & Luke. The feels… OMG the feels. She gives you humor, HAWT sexy time, suspense, tension and heartbreak. You will take a roller coaster ride on the emotional scale the entire book. This is most definitely a 5 star read for me.~ Amazon Reviewer
