synopsis

Front Man Leo Nash from the world-famous rock band, Nash, is the last person on earth Samantha Williams would trust. She’s already learned about loving a celebrity the hard way and isn’t signing up for another lesson. Every time Sam gives Leo attitude, he wants to knock that chip off her fragile little shoulder. What the hell did he ever do to her, anyway? He’s not used to women treating him like he’s poisonous, and he isn’t about to let her run away every time he gets close. He’s had enough of people running away to last him a lifetime…when this one runs, he gives chase. But, catching Sam isn’t as hard as he thought. The sexual attraction between them is so thick, Sam can practically hold it in her hand. There’s no way she can deny herself the promise of pleasure being with Leo would provide. But, pleasure always comes with pain and when secrets are revealed and trust is challenged, who will run and who will chase?

reviewKristen did it again. I absolutely LOVE every book in this series so far! I look forward to each and EVERY one of them! They make me laugh and even cry. This is Sam’s story and to be honest I really wanted to NOT like her because of how she acted in the first book Come Away With Me. But she really isn’t all that bad I suppose. I did get upset with her at one point in the story with how she handled a certain situation that came up. But I ended up loving both Leo and Sam. I loved Leo from the start, middle and end. 🙂 There was one moment where…well I am sure some would get upset with him for how he reacted and what he did but…all I could think was dayuummm that was HOT!

Leo is an outsider, when it comes to the Mongomery’s. He is a rock star, so he is famous and well known.

So for those who have not read this series yet, I would suggest to read in order. (reading order here) But if you want to understand the connection here ya go…

Here is Leo’s connection to the Montgomery’s:

He grew up with Meg, he looks at her as if she is his little sister. Meg is dating Will who is the brother of Caleb, Matt, Issac (Under The Misteletoe With Me) and Jules (Fight With Me) Montgomery.

The connection of Samantha to the Montgomery’s:

The Montgomery family pretty much adopted Natalie (Come Away With Me) into their family when she lost her parents so Caleb, Issac, Matt and Will all treat her like a little sister. Jules is her best friend. Nat meets and ends up with Luke Williams who was a movie star. He has a brother Mark and sister Samantha.

So there you have the connections with the family!  🙂

I absolutely love that we get all the other family members in each book. They are all awesome! When they are all together, forget it. I end up laughing the entire time I am reading. (okay well except for one time).  The closeness between that entire family is something to envy. I know that I am always looking forward to the next book, I wish she had written them all before putting them out so she could put them out one week after another so there would be no waiting. Yes I know, I can wish though right?!

She does the best job mixing erotic, romance and humor. I will read every book she puts out, I have yet to be disappointed as I am sure many would agree she does such a great job. I know for me when I get emotionally involved in a book it’s a good one, and she has done that with just about everyone so far. I read and want to go and hang out with the Montgomery gang have a fun night of bowling or games, but then I have to remind myself they are not real they are fictional!

I knew there was going to be the attraction between Sam and Leo, we could kind of see it starting up in Play With Me and we get to see it develop in this one. I do have to admit at first I wasn’t sure about it because we all know Sam as the smart mouthed girl who doesn’t take anything from anyone. She wasn’t really being her normal feisty self at a couple spots and I had thought to myself…okay this isn’t like her…then boom she is back. I sighed in relief thanking all things Kristen Proby for not all of a sudden turning her into a mushy girly girl that we ALL know she is not. I loved how they brought out the best in each other. And learning little things about Leo from Meg was fun too! That ending though… right before the epilogue ohhh it had me wanting to yell…WAIT, WHAT HAPPENS??? Now I will have to wait for the next book to just to find out what happens. Well played Proby well played… brandy

Review – Come Away With Me by Kristen Proby

Author: Kristen Proby

Book: Come Away With Me

Series : With Me in Seattle 1

Blurb:

Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn’t part of Natalie Conner’s plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she’s taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

Luke Williams just wants the world to give him a break, so seeing yet another camera aimed at his face has him ready to pounce on the beauty behind the lens. When he finds out she has no idea who he is, he’s intrigued and more than a little tempted by her. Natalie has a body made for sex, a sassy mouth and Luke can’t get enough of her, but he’s not ready to tell her who he really his.

Natalie is a no nonsense girl who doesn’t do well with lies and secrets. What will happen to this new relationship when she discovers what Luke’s hiding?

My Thoughts:

I was excited to read this one because I have come to love a book that is about a guy that is famous and the girl has no clue who he is. It just makes for a great story, and a great story it was. I fell in love with Luke, at first I was a little ehhh with him because he was so positive that she was taking pictures of him and that she knew who he was. All I have to say is he knows how to woo a girl!

And to be honest if that cover does not draw you in to begin with then you must not be looking at the same hot, beautiful cover that I am!

I can say one thing. I have NEVER thought of a man whispering as being anything other then them trying to be secretive, but I have to say that now it has a completely different effect on me when my husband whispers. So thank you for that Mrs Kristen! 🙂 oh and pearls! 😉

We get to know Nat and those wonderful pictures she takes. Her best friend Jules is awesome also, they are quite the duo, had me cracking up and a little envious over the kind of relationship they have. They are beast friends who are sisters for the most part, Nat has pretty much been adopted by Jules family. (and oh what a family it is! 🙂 ) When meeting the other characters you will also want more from each and every one of them.. So when I had found out that this was going to be part of  a series I was beyond ecstatic! I LOVE a great series about a fun family!

This story was such a sweet and at times emotional ride.  This is a great love story. Kristen Proby does it GREAT. She does a great mix of romance, love, steam, and emotion. This is the first in the series and all I can say is I am sold and will be reading ALL of the books in this series. This is not a book that will take you all over the place because it just didn’t need that, it is great just the way it is. I would absolutely recommend this for people to read!

Review ~ Play With Me by Kristen Proby

Book: Play With Me

Author: Kristen Proby

Series: With Me In Seattle #3

~Blurb~

Will Montgomery is a successful professional football player and seemingly has it all. He’s not used to being told no, and certainly doesn’t take no for an answer. So when he turns his charms on his sister’s sexy rocker-chick friend Meg, he’s not only turned down, but met with open hostility, piquing his curiosity and libido. He’s determined to show her that he’s not the arrogant jock she thinks he is, and to get her into his bed.

Megan McBride is not impressed with Will Montgomery, his fat contract, fancy car, or his arrogant public persona. She doesn’t have time for a relationship, and if she’s learned anything in life, it’s that loving means losing, so she guards her heart ferociously. But she can’t deny the overwhelming attraction to the sexy, tattooed athlete, and when Will starts breaking down her defenses and grabs hold of her heart, will she be able to admit her feelings for him, or will her troubled past cause her to lose the first man she’s ever truly loved?

~Thoughts~

I was so excited when I got a copy of this one! I love the brothers so much! They crack me up, the girls do also. I was excited to learn more about Will. I have to say that I thought he was going to be my least favorite because well Matt is my man, and well gotta love Caleb! After reading this one I have to say that Will found a way to wiggle his way into my heart! I loved so much about him, he is sweet, loving, caring, and just wow!

There were so many moments that got me with him, the first one that got me was at the hospital, there were a few more moments but I don’t want to ruin it and giveaway anything so I you will have to trust that after reading this one if you were not sure about Will you will end up in LOVE with him by the end of this one.

And well that car…oh how I LOVE that car!!!

482330_10200473427415379_2108474044_n

To be honest I think that other than the obvious hot parts the drunk parts were my favorite parts. They had me laughing so hard!

You will feel the hurt, the love and the fear that they both feel… all of it will make you feel as if you are there in the book.

I am getting so excited as we are getting closer to Caleb and Matt’s stories. I love when the whole family gets together it reminds me of when I am together with my husbands family everyone loves everyone but there is a lot of crap talking that goes on.

I am SO glad that I went and bought the first book to read it, I was instantly hooked on this series. I look forward to each and everyone that comes out!

5 stars

Blurb: Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he’s your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy…among other things, and it won’t happen again. Jules won’t risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her. Nate McKenna could give a shit about the no fraternizing policy. He wants Jules and he’ll have her. The rules could bend around them, or be damned. He’s not a man to be taken lightly, and Jules Montgomery is about to find out just how he responds to being pushed aside after the best night of sex he’s ever had. She can fight all she wants, but he’ll have her in his bed in the end.

My Thoughts:

Ohhh what was NOT to love about this one? I am SO happy that we got their story next because I was wondering what was going to happen with them since we got some of their story in the first book. And how could I NOT love Nate? ohhhh and he has that special added decoration! lol There were quite a few up and down moments. I wanted to slap him and yell at her a few times. I LOVE when he finally went around her family! why you may ask well I absolutely LOVE her family!  I got to see a little bit of my man Matt and am excited to see what his story is going to bring but know that I will have to wait to find out.

There was so much that went on in this one. To be that close to someone on a daily basis and know that you are not allowed to be with them because it is against the rules where they work. To know that no matter how much you want to be with them you can loose your job, so in the end is it worth it?

We get to find out some fun stuff about the both of them like with Nate he was a former UFC fighter. Which by the way totally HOT, and well when he found out that she posed for playboy…PRICELESS.

Mrs. Proby has a way with writing that I absolutely love. I have not been disappointed yet and I doubt that I will.

You will laugh, get angry, be confused, cry and get all hot and bothered. She does a great job and I loved this one I am looking forward to the next!

Review – Under The Mistletoe With Me by Kristen Proby

Book: Under the Mistletoe With Me

Author: Kristen Proby

Series: With Me In Seattle 1.5

<– *click on cover pic to go to amazon link*

Blurb:

Isaac and Stacy Montgomery have been married for ten years. They have a beautiful new baby girl, Isaac’s construction business is thriving, and Stacy enjoys being a stay at home mom, reviewing sexy romance novels for her blog. With a very large extended family, and the many privileges they enjoy, Stacy will be the first to admit that they are blessed beyond measure.

When suspicious phone calls and text messages begin, Stacy questions Isaac’s faithfulness for the first time in their marriage. She knows that a new baby brings changes into a relationship, but has the stress of parenthood sent Isaac into another woman’s arms, threatening to destroy their marriage?

This With Me In Seattle novella shows us a glimpse into Jules’ brother, Isaac, and his wife Stacy’s lives, introduces us to some new characters, and reminds us of what it means to reconnect with the person you love the most, even if they never left in the first place.

My Thoughts:

I know many of us have been in a situation where you don’t feel sexy at all especially after having a baby. You feel as if your baby daddy does not look at you the same, so it can at times start to raise issues and you can easily jump to conclusions. I loved everything about this novella. It was dealing with an issue that many of us have been through at some point in time. We do not always feel desirable and well it can lead the mind to travel to places that are not that great. It reminds us that we need to make sure to take time to reconnect with our significant other, and well you cannot do that without some hotness right?! because there is hotness!

“I will spank the living shit out of you.”

How the hell do I respond to that?

You can’t help but fall in love with Isaac. These men Kristen Proby writes about are just outstanding! I have yet to meet one that I didn’t like. Isaac did have me crakin up from time to time as well.

“I just love it when you laugh when I’m inside you.”

There was a lot about this book that at a few points hit close to home for me because after having 3 kiddos I have definitely felt like the spark has started to dim.

“As in most relationships, we’ve grown comfortable and I admit that it’s easy to take each other for granted. I wouldn’t say that romance is dead, but there are times she goes on vacation.”

I am sure MANY can agree to that when you have been in a relationship for a long time. This story just a reminder to take time to reconnect with the one you love.
