Synopsis

Stay with Me
Was a little peace and quiet too much to hope for?

Mac Montgomery spent two years watching his father play matchmaker for his brothers and their wives and as the last Montgomery standing, he knew it wouldn’t be long until all eyes would be on him. While he couldn’t deny that things had worked out well for his siblings, the last thing that Mac wanted was to get married and settle down.

He hadn’t counted on his father not wanting to set him up with anyone.

And he hadn’t counted on Gina Micelli.

After more than a dozen years away from her beloved family friends, Gina Micelli comes home to take care of her ailing father. Some of her most cherished memories are of the times she spent with the Montgomerys – and her crush on Mac. She was a child when she moved away, but now as a grown woman, the thought of seeing Mac again actually has her wondering at the possibilities.

Ever the responsible one, Mac makes sure that Gina is taken care of during such an emotional time. He wants to see her as a friend, as the girl that he remembers from his youth. Unfortunately, the beautiful woman she has grown into has all thoughts of a platonic relationship flying out the window. Torn between honor and passion and peace or chaos, all Mac knows is that his life is never going to be the same.

The timing is all wrong but for two people fighting for control over their own lives, their response to one another is anything but.

More of Me
Ryder Montgomery has returned to North Carolina to take a break from the corporate world and the first item on his agenda is to look up the woman he walked away from more than ten years ago. Casey is currently going to be playing a big role in the Montgomery family’s lives and when paired up with Ryder, it doesn’t take long for old sparks to reignite!

Review

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Stay With Me is a bittersweet book. It was sad because the heroine had to deal with losing her dad, one she was not allowed to build a relationship with. Until he became terminally ill and she had to come back to her childhood town and spend time with him.

I’m kind of sensitive with books like this because I also lost my dad and we didn’t really have a relationship when I was younger. By the time we were okay, he passed away too soon. There are still so many things I wish he would have been around for, but I can’t have that anymore.

That being said, I truly loved Stay With Me. There were instances when I thought that Gina was too good for Mac. However, her goes and does small things that make me re-think my opinion. Of course, the formidable William Montgomery stole the show again. He’s the best character in the series.

For More of Me, I found the story to be very simple. It was probably the easiest story in the series, with no real conflict at all excerpt for when Ryder had to go back to tie up loose ends. Still, it was enjoyable and really sweet, so I’m not complaining at all.

I look forward to meeting more Montgomery men and women and being a witness to their love stories. This series has been such an entertaining read for me. I’m really glad I got the chance to read them and that NetGalley awarded me with the ARC. I’d definitely recommend this book to anybody as I’m sure they will love it as much as I did.
