Dream With Me by Kristen Proby

Release Date: January 21, 2020

Dream With Me FOR WEB.jpg

Dream With Me, an all-new standalone contemporary romance in the beloved With Me In Seattle Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby.

Kane O’Callaghan knows what it is to have his work shown all over the world. His pieces are on display in palaces and museums, including the O’Callaghan Museum of Glass just outside of his beloved hometown of Seattle. Kane is a bit of a recluse, spending time on his farm alone and committed to his art. His life is full.

Until the day he meets her.

Wandering through museums is Anastasia Montgomery’s favorite way to spend her time. Not only does art feed her soul, but it inspires her own art of designing wedding cakes. When her muse seems to be gone, she finds her again among the beauty in the museums of Seattle, and the O’Callaghan Museum of Glass is her favorite. She’s never met the artist, but he must be absolutely brilliant, if he can make such beautiful things out of glass.

Bumping into a grumpy stranger at the museum wasn’t in Anastasia’s plan. And then discovering it was Kane himself was absolutely humiliating.

But when she sees him again at a charity fundraiser, and ends up spending an incredible, unforgettable night with the mysterious glass smith, Anastasia finds herself thinking of Kane and little else, even her precious work. Will this relationship bloom into the romance of a lifetime, or will their dreams of success get in the way of true love?

Excerpt:

Okay, so the man has moves. It shouldn’t surprise me that someone who creates such amazing works of art can also lead a girl around the dance floor. With one palm firmly planted on my lower back, and the other clutching my hand, Kane keeps his eyes on mine.

“You’re a good dancer,” I murmur.

“You’re nervous,” he replies softly. “There’s no need to be. It’s just a dance.”

I take a deep breath and offer him a smile. He’s right. It’s just a dance.

The fact that he’s maybe the hottest man I’ve ever seen is a huge bonus.

And if he can move like this, with all of our clothes on, I can only imagine what it could be like if we were naked.

Mercy.

“I never got your name,” he says and guides me closer to him so we can talk into each other’s ears. I glance around the room, seeing my sister and the other girls smiling at us, watching us dance.

“Anastasia,” I say and turn my head, not quite planting my nose against his neck. The smell of this man is going to kill me.

And not because it triggers my asthma.

Because it’s too sexy.

I watch the pulse in his neck and enjoy the feeling of his strong arms holding me.

“That’s a lovely name.” The accent is thicker in his voice now. Irish? I’m not good with accents, but I’d bet he’s Irish.

His last name might be an indicator.

“Thank you.”

The song ends and flows into another ballad. Adele sings about finding another lover, as Kane moves against me, with me.

I wonder if it looks as sexy as it feels.

“You said yesterday,” he whispers against my ear, “that you’d be using your sketch for something else. What will that something be?”

“A cake.”

He pulls back far enough to smile down at me in surprise. “A cake, is it?”

I nod, more comfortable talking about what I do for a living than just dancing in silence.

“I design and build wedding cakes for a living. I can do them for other occasions, as well, but wedding cakes are what I’m known for.”

“Interesting.”

“I have a client who came into my shop about a month ago to hire me. They didn’t give me any direction at all. No colors, no requests. It just has to feed about two hundred guests.” I shake my head in disgust. “Not that I want them to tell me to copy a photo. I won’t do that, but usually, they have colors they like or flowers in mind. Something. Not these two. When I need inspiration, I like to look at what others have created. Or have conversations with people I enjoy.”

“That makes sense,” he says and leans in to kiss my forehead, which sends a shiver right down my spine to my lady parts—which had already sat up and taken notice of Kane.

“What was that for?” I ask.

“An apology,” he replies. “For being difficult yesterday.”

“Apology accepted.”

His lips quirk into that half-smile, his green eyes shining. The song is almost over, and I know I should thank him for the dance and find Lia and the others.

“Thanks for the dance.”

The last note plays, and I pull back, immediately wishing I was back in his arms.

He’s a stranger, and it’s crazy, but it’s true.

“Do you belong to a man, Anastasia?” Kane brushes his knuckles down the side of my cheek.

I frown. “I’ll never belong to anyone.”

“You know what I mean. Are you taken?”

“I’m single if that’s what you’re asking.”

“Good.” He kisses the back of my hand.

About Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

5 stars

I’ve said it before – Kristen Proby could rewrite the phone book and I would read it. I love her that much! So imagine how happy I was that not only did she introduce us to a cousin of the Montgomery’s, she also introduced us to the O’Callaghan family, with 4 kids of their own!

Anastasia Montgomery is a wedding cake designer, and she likes to go the the museum for inspiration for her cakes. Her favorite room in the museum is the blown glass room, full of work by artist Kane O’Callaghan. She very much admires Kane’s work. She happens to meet Kane at the museum one day, and Kane is mesmerized. Sadly, he makes a bad impression on Stasia, and she doesn’t feel the same way.

Stasia and Kane meet again at a charity gala, and this time, it’s different. I have to tell you, Kane is a great character. While he could come off as broody and intimidating, he was a really great guy. He was so kind of Stasia, and very romantic!

Stasia was a character with a lot of grit. She was drawn to the sexy, Irish Kane immediately. They were both artists, so they had that in common. Stasia was very close with her family, the Montgomery’s, and we got to see many of the old characters in this book, especially Jules and Nate (book 2).

I really enjoyed this story. I haven’t read a book about a glassblower before, so it was an interesting topic to me, and reminded me a bit of Sweet Home Alabama (the movie).  I always love getting a chance to reconnect with old characters, so that part didn’t disappoint.

I would recommend this book and the entire series.

Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day.

From ax throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together.

Until the Tequila by Brynne Asher

Until the Tequila (Killers & Happily Ever Alpha World Crossover Novella)

 

Title: Until the Tequila
Author: Brynne Asher
Rating: 4 stars
Genre: Romance
Where I got it: Kindle Unlimited

 

Goodreads Summary

Tequila: a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant and, in Mary’s case, a truth serum.

It took one night.

No, it took one dinner, a bevy of cocktails, and a woman who’s been skirting me for months. Then, everything changed. Because the tequila did what it does best, Mary’s words flowed faster than the magic liquid she was shooting with salt and lime.
Mary had demons—ones she thought were buried. She thought wrong.
She can’t hide from her past or from me. Not anymore.
I’m Evan Hargrove and I’ll turn the world red before I let anything happen to her.

Review

I love these Happily Ever After novellas. I love the Brynne Asher Vines’ series, so I was excited when I saw this book.

This was a short book, but it packed a lot into a short story.

Mary is a hairdresser, and has moved to Virginia from Tennessee, where she moved away to get away from her horrible father. Her father gets out of prison, and goes back to the town she’s from, and he starts asking about her. Her friend, July Mayson Silver (from Aurora Rose Reynold’s Until series), warns her that her father is looking for her, at the same time that Evan Hargrove decides he’s ready to make Mary his.

Evan is a total alpha. He decides he wants Mary, and that’s it. Once he finds out she’s in trouble, he’s basically moving her in with him. Evan works for Addy at the vineyards (Vines series), but his family is a breeder of thoroughbreds and he’s quite wealthy. 

Mary, on the other hand, grew up in foster care and is convinced that she and Evan don’t work. Evan doesn’t agree, and you can imagine the rest.

There was some drama with her dad that added to the story.

But the ending is what was the best. I really loved the epilogue. I would recommend this book. It was really good.
