At the ends of the earth, Patagonia is a land where ambition trumps reason and the savage summit of La Aguja lures the most determined climbers. It's also the last spot a "play-it-safe girl" like Auden Woods expects to find herself. But she'll lace up her brand-new hiking boots and do whatever it takes to secure a dream job at an adventure magazine . . . even if it kills her. And it just might. When disaster strikes, her only chance at survival comes in the form of the surliest, sexiest mountaineer ever to come out of Scotland.
After a climbing accident cost him his brother, professional mountaineer Rhys MacAskill is at the end of his rope. Redemption is not in his future. That is, until a terrifying storm blows a budding journalist into his tent and it's up to him to make sure they both survive until morning. Despite the demons weighing on him, Rhys can't resist the temptation of the charming American and one wild night just isn't enough.
Auden and Rhys soon learn there are no shortcuts as they navigate their way between life, death, and atonement, and discover something they never expected—love.

Auden has been living the safest life possible. She finally gets a chance to get away and have an adventure and she snaps it up. Rhys doesn't want to let anyone in his life or anywhere near enough to him to start caring for them. But when Auden shows up at his "front door" he can't help but let her in and save her from the elements.
I enjoyed their connection from the very beginning of the story. Though he doesn't trust Auden because she's a reporter and he's well known from his history. They learn to work through their pasts and struggles and ultimately discover their self worth.
One thing that aggravated me was the lack of caring Auden's family seemed to have and how her sister treats her absolutely horrible. Her parents seemed to brush her off and say it's best you aren't around right now because your sister is in a mood.
If you enjoy an angsty story about hope and love With Every Breath is worth the read.
I give With Every Breath...
After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, Lia Riley scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about as-of-yet unwritten books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. She and her family live mostly in Northern California.
