The With Me in Seattle series by Kristen Proby is one of my favorite reads. I started with the first one and every book has just gotten better for me. The Montgomery family is one I just love to read about. Having read all of them so far, I was surprised to see this selection in our Holiday Read and Review.. I had not even known it existed and picked it as soon as I saw it.
This book starts with Stacy and Isaac Montgomery, the stable and solid couple that is always there for a shoulder to cry on or some straight shooting advice. They have finally been able to have their daughter and are learning to adjust to the fun of family life. Not always the easiest adjustment to feel sexy and wanted. Changing diapers, barely sleeping, and sadly your sex life can be the last thing on the daily agenda.
Conforming to the new life, and the raging hormones has Stacy not acting herself and her lack of confidence leads to feelings of betrayal. In all honesty this book spoke to me on many levels. You are being pulled in a million different directions, feeling like a lump and the slightest tinge of jealousy can rage into a boiling inferno in seconds.
Isaac being the hot, devoted and madly in love with his wife hubby that he is..recognizes this and makes sure his woman knows, beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is the fairy tale happy ending that he has always wanted.
The brief glimpse of the life that Stacy and Isaac lead was fun to dive into. Being a novella was the perfect little taste of the eldest Montgomery brother that has always held his own in everyone else’s story. The fact that Stacy is a book blogger and reviewer was the icing on the cake. Loved it!
“This is the best Christmas present, right here,” he whispers against my mouth. “Just being with my girls.”
“I bury my face in her neck, breathe in her sweet Stacy scent and murmur, “God, I love you too. Merry Christmas.”
