Review: SAFE WITH ME (With Me in Seattle #5) by Kristen Proby
We’ll be spending some time with Kristen in Portland this coming weekend!! Yay!! In the meantime, we want to share Nicole’s review of Kristen’s latest release, Safe With Me (Book #5 in the With Me in Seattle Series). Today’s post includes Nicole’s review (Nicole joined Up All Night Book Blog as a reviewer a few months ago) and also links to Kristen’s other With Me books and her upcoming Love Under the Big Sky series…

Keeping others safe is what Caleb Montgomery does. He’s never had a problem taking on an assignment, whether it was during his dangerous SEAL days or his most recent job of training war mercenaries. But being assigned to keep Brynna Vincent and her adorable daughters, Maddie and Josie, safe from an unknown threat has thrown Caleb off his axis. Hot for the tall brunette since she came back to town more than a year ago, being close to her day in and day out is cracking Caleb’s resolve to keep his hands off her gorgeous body and his head in the mission.
Brynna is sick and tired of being afraid. All she wants is a normal, quiet life for her and her precious girls. Just as she’s settling into her new home in Seattle and feeling safe again, Caleb shows up on her doorstep insisting the danger is as high as ever. But whether she needs to be sheltered from the threat in her past, or from the intense emotions she feels for the sexy, protective man sleeping in her home, remains to be seen. What will happen if Brynna and her girls fall in love with a man so broken he may not be able to protect them from the danger that threatens, much less himself?”
SAFE WITH ME is the fifth book in the With Me In Seattle series, and continues to follow this tight-knit, loving family through life’s trials and tribulations with humor, passion and everlasting love.
Nicole’s Review 5 Stars
Way back in May, my dear friend Dawn of Up All Night Book Blog recommended a book series to me. She said it was one of her favorites and thought that I might enjoy it too. The series is called “With Me in Seattle” and it is by Kristen Proby. I immediately downloaded the first book, Come Away with Me, onto my kindle and read it in like a day. I immediately downloaded the next book, Fight with Me, and finished that one in about a day too. I did the same thing with the third book, Play with Me and the fourth book, Rock with Me. Basically, I read all 4 books in a week. They were that good! I tell Dawn that I’m finished and she says that there is another book coming out “soon”! Another book?! Oh happy day!! I can’t wait! I loved reading about the Montgomery family! They are quite a group; smart, sexy women and deliciously hot men. Kristen Proby writes great stories that are fun, interesting and steamy!
Anyway…I get all excited that there is another book in the series and I’m thinking based on the other books, this one will be the sexiest and most intense. I ask Dawn how soon is “soon” and she tells me mid-September!!
Hold up! Wait a minute! That isn’t soon! That’s 3 months from when I started the series! I have to wait for 3 months to get the next book! O.M.G!!!!! I hate waiting!!!!!
Finally, Safe with Me was released and I got to read what was to become my favorite book in the series!!
Safe with Me is Caleb Montgomery’s story. As a former Navy SEAL, Caleb knows what it means to keep others safe regardless of the risks. He is intense. He is strong. He is the kind of person who notices every detail in a situation. All of these traits are necessary for the missions and assignments he completed as a SEAL. They also make him extremely sexy!!! In Safe with Me, Caleb is tasked with keeping his sister-in-law’s cousin and her daughters safe from men who killed her ex-husband. As far as Caleb is concerned, Brynna is family and family takes care of family. Being family doesn’t exactly stop him from being completely attracted to Brynna. Caleb wants Brynna…he wants her bad! But she’s family and therefore off limits. Which would be fine if Brynna didn’t want him the same way, but she does…badly! Brynna is fiercely independent. She can take care of herself and her girls just fine! And while she can do all of that, Brynna isn’t terribly upset that a hunk of manly hotness is living with her. It certainly isn’t a hardship to watch him workout or interact with her girls! (Let’s face it…it wouldn’t be a hardship for me either!) The attraction between Brynna and Caleb is so intense that we need one of them to make a move! Good grief…would somebody jump somebody, please!!
Safe with Me is a great read and a wonderful addition to the With Me in Seattle series. And speaking of the series, I HIGHLY recommend it! You don’t have to read the books in order, though there is background information in each one. Reading them in order helps you keep track of who is married to whom and how they got together.
I rate Safe with Me a hands down 5 stars. I loved this book! If you are looking for a great story with interesting characters, then this is a book for you!
