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.

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?

    Favorite Quotes: Im not a fan of people, especially when theyre all in one place. That place being wherever I am. I bought my land away from civilization for a reason. How could I explain to her that the minute my eyes fell upon her in the museum, it was like recognizing a part of me I didnt know was missing? I knew her, right then and there.

This lovely couple was adorable, I would trade all the beautiful shoes and purses in my closet to be treated and treasured the way Kane did Stasia. I’ve only recently discovered the delightful storytelling of Kristen Proby but I was a quick convert and remain enamored and besotted with her sweet and sexy style. The characters were endearing, the storylines were entertaining and engaging, and the writing was cleverly amusing and insightfully observant. Sigh, to sum it up in one word – perfection.

Without fail these characters captivate me from the very beginning of their stories and Kane and Anastasia were no different. I loved the bit of possessiveness that Kane showed when it came to Anastasia, and how quickly they fell into an easy relationship. They were perfect together and it was so fun to read about them having so much love and trust between them. I love the family dynamic that Ms. Proby always puts into her stories and in this book we got the added bonus of the O'Callaghan family. I'll be crossing my fingers hoping we'll see more of them, but of course there are still more Montgomery's that I'm waiting for. ARC kindly provided for an honest review.

    Anastasias passion is creating beautiful cakes, mainly wedding cakes but she can come up with something for any special occasion. However, right now she has a creative block and decides to seek out some inspiration from the local museum, hoping it will arouse something in her for a new client job she has taken on. When Stasia (Anastasia) comes across a beautiful glass collection it is just the thing she needs to inspire her to settle in on a bench and let the ideas flow onto paper. This is where Anastasia’s passion is creating beautiful cakes, mainly wedding cakes but she can come up with something for any special occasion. However, right now she has a creative block and decides to seek out some inspiration from the local museum, hoping it will arouse something in her for a new client job she has taken on. When Stasia (Anastasia) comes across a beautiful glass collection it is just the thing she needs to inspire her to settle in on a bench and let the ideas flow onto paper. This is where she meets Kane O’Callaghan for the first time. She is initially a bit annoyed about the intrusion into her creativity bubble but his striking looks are enough of a dispensation for the distraction. When she learns that he is the artist responsible for the beauty that is inspiring her she is intrigued. The next time they meet is at a fundraising event and the attraction between them is palpable. In fact, Stasia decides to give into what her body is dictating and enjoy what is happening between them. What they share is a night they will never forget. Kane is feeling completely overwhelmed with what he is feeling for Stasia. He has been single for a while now and was not looking for anyone when he found her. He is taken in by her talent and beauty. Everything just feels so right and he wants to see where this connection they have will lead them. ‘How could I explain to her that the minute my eyes fell upon her in the museum, it was like recognizing a part of me I didn’t know was missing? I knew her, right then and there. It was a kind of knowing that I can’t explain, nothing I’ve ever felt before…’ Stasia is feeling the same way. They are so right for each other and after meeting each other’s families things just seem to be falling into place. However, they both have big dreams to pursue and Kane is used to living such a solitary life, focused on his own goals. Can they both make adjustments in their lives so they can merge their dreams into reality together? It’s been ages since I last read a story from the With Me In Seattle series and this was a great catch up with the Montgomery family and introduction to the O’Callaghan siblings.

Pure KP magic with the most delicious of accents! How it's amazing to be back to the WMIS universe, and with another unforgettable love story to boot! Anastasia Montgomery - Lia's sister from Stay With Me - is a successful cake designer, in a moment of search for inspiration she merges herself in art, and it's in that inspiring moment that she crosses paths with the reclusive and famous artist, Kane O' Callaghan. After meeting by chance twice in so many days, they embrace their insane attraction, starting an amazing, naturally but speedy, lol, love affair.  “You took my breath away, and I wasn’t ready for it.” “The wanting for you never ends,” I was absolutely enchanted by Kane and Stasia, how I adored not only their personalities, but their honesty and passion, but their intense sense of family and love for one another. I loved how we got a deep insight into this new family introduced by Kane, the O' Callaghan's, and though heartbreaking at times, and funny in other, we could already feel the immense potential of this characters. Family love shone throughout the all story, hooking me up even more to this already fantastic characters. “Something you’ll learn about my family is, we take care of our own. Always. And if you’re with me, you’re one of us.” I've said it in the past, and I'll say it again, there are very few romance authors that have the capacity to give us such rich characters and storylines, but so RELATABLE, and mature. Every single time I'm in awe at the strong and fiercely independent female characters, as such is Anastasia; absolutely swoon worthy, but still flawed and realistic male characters, with Kane proving and assuming it to the fullest; but specially, their relationship development, so utterly symbiotic, relatable, and still, every bit of passionate and romantic, that even when the conflict surges, I'm still fascinated on how mature and rationally the issues are solved. I ADORE that! And Kane and Anastasia's beautiful and incredibly sexy and passionate romance reflected their artistic souls to a T, and made me fall HARD for these two! I’ve never been swept up into anything so profound before. So necessary. Yes, glass is in my soul, and I’ll work with sand and fire until the day I die. I was reminded that work fuels work, and art feeds art. Ms. Proby manages - without fail - every single time to steal big piece of my heart with these With Me In Seattle gang. So beautifully written, with such passion, emotion, and realist, but so powerfully romantic, that it is for me the epitome of a love story! I can't never get enough of this  world, and now that the author is enticing us with a whole new family sphere of the O’Callaghan's, plus that angsty reveal of Archer's story, I. AM. DYING! I need all these books STAT!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 “I’m irreversibly and completely in love with you.” His words are soft but steady. Sure. “Being with you is a special form of magic that I never want to lose.” “I love you, too.” My fingers brush through the hair at the nape of his neck. “Completely and irreversibly.” ARC kindly provided by the author via Social Butterfly PR for an honest review For full review with Blog Tour, check out my Blog post, http://gisspotreviews.com/index.php/2...

Dream With Me tells Kane and Anastasia's (Stasia) story and you can't miss out on this one. Sexy. Sweet. Fun. Unputdownable. Beautiful to the very core of their journey. Kane and Stasia had me hooked from their first interactions where sparks were flying and after THAT moment they shared, I was all in until the very last word. An easier romance packed with heart, heat, and one couple that'll have you swooning... there's a reason this series and author are crazy popular. 😉 I've been a huge fan and loyal follower of Kristen since the very first book in the With Me In Seattle series came out (shout out to Come Away with Me - my first, Nat & Luke!!) and y'all, I'm so glad this series is still going strong- 19 books deep. Kristen certainly has a way with her words and I hope she never, ever stops writing... especially in this world. I highly recommend this book. Reviewed for Renee Entress's Blog.

    3 3/4 "Art inspires love." Stars This was romantic, lusty and sweet. Kane was smokin'; Anastacia was feisty in a good way. Some really unnecessary and uncalled for really not needed drama at the end. (hard eye roll) Otherwise very low drama, low angst; a nice enjoyable story. Very Kristen Proby with the big family and friends. Plus the signature Girls Night Out. I'm hoping Archer- Anastacia's brother- gets his story next and also hoping to see some O'Callaghans find love. Happy reading!

    Kane is amazing !! I luv this series so much It just keeps getting better and better. I'm not a big fan of big series but with this one I can't get enough of it. Everyone book is so good I luv the Montgomery family there just brilliant and getting the other sides of family's is just had good I'm dying for more of this series. Its getting to see the older characters again I miss them so much so it's great getting more from them and the new characters are just as good. This book is Anastasia and Kane is amazing !! I luv this series so much It just keeps getting better and better. I'm not a big fan of big series but with this one I can't get enough of it. Everyone book is so good I luv the Montgomery family there just brilliant and getting the other sides of family's is just had good I'm dying for more of this series. Its getting to see the older characters again I miss them so much so it's great getting more from them and the new characters are just as good. This book is Anastasia and Kane's story. Anastasia is the sister of Amelia who's book is Stay with Me. Anastasia is a brilliant character I really liked her. She is a simple independent woman who knows what she wants in life. Making gorgeous cakes and turning it into a successful business is what she wanted and she has it. Family means everything to her she is close to her sister and brother and the rest of the Montgomery clang they are a package deal all the men are very protective and I luv this about there family. If any of the women get hurt that person better get ready to deal this these strong sexy alpha men. Kane where to start with this sexy Irish man. He is amazing and I think he might of stoke Nate's number one spot. This guy is quiet, sensitive, luvs his own space and company. Kane does have a big family and they are very close. His family is a lot like the Montgomery's not had big but they are very protective of each other and are alway there when needed. Once Kane set his sights on something he wants he goes and gets it and this was no different with Anastasia. Once he seen her he had to get to know her. There first meet was great but it was funny Kane was cocky and a bit rude but Anastasia throw the sass right back at him. There second meet wasn't has bad at all and it's where it all started. I luv this author so much her books are alway so easy to read. I always know that I well enjoy and once I start I can never put the books down. I would highly recommend this book and the rest of this series. The story flowed really well and it had me dying to know what was goin to happen. There were a few twists and stories set from other characters which I'm dying for even more now. I really can't wait to see what this author will do next with this crazy lot. But I know that I luv it no matter what.

I think this is one of my favorite things about her titles. You aren't waiting for the breakup, you are watching the relationship develop and enjoying watching them figure it out. If things go wrong, you don't automatically think they are going to split up...which makes the books by Ms. Proby feel a little different than other books. In this one, you have artists who meet and have a shared understanding of the demands of being an artist, while also having a desire to be with one another. And, this is a story where you get to watch them work it out. I am not going to tell the plot of this one, and really, it's not about the plot, it's about the people. And, this one tells the story of the people very, very well. I enjoyed this title and I recommend it. ***This and other reviews can be found on our blog https://www.bookedallnightblog.com/***

Move over Luke and make room for Kane. Give me a gorgeous, creative, alpha Irishman and I’m in. Add to that his broodiness (at times) and his artistic side and he’s officially my dream man. Anastasia was equally incredible. She’s perfectly flawed and creative and loves her family. They are both so driven and focused and it was so beautiful to see them step back from their work focused worlds a little so they could fall deeply in love. This book truly has it all! Not only were the main characters so well written I think I fell a little in love with Kane but the secondary characters have me sitting with my hands out waiting for the next book in the series!! I’ve got a list a mile long of books I need in my hands NOW! I don’t know how Kristen does it, but she has truly created these worlds that her readers feel so much a part of. We laugh as though we are actually at the bar with the characters during girls night out. We cry as though we are holding the hand of our favorite characters when they suffer heartbreak. When these characters fall in love, we fall a little in love too. I can’t wait for Ben’s book (Shine With Me)!! When they got to the gym in Dream With Me and I realized Ben would be “returning” to the With Me in Seattle world I was so excited. It means we will likely get more Matt and Nic. I’m also beyond ready for Archer and Elena’s book and Maggie and Cameron’s (fingers crossed)! Kristen gave me just enough that I’m ecstatic and can’t wait!

    I can't stop loving this series. 4,5 stars I'm a fan of this series and this author since Come Away With Me. And even though this book is a standalone, I totally recommend reading the whole series, because it's amazing. As expected from Kristen Proby, we had light moments, fun, love, sweetness, sexiness and adorable characters. A totally safe reading. Anastasia is from the Montgomery clan ans she bakes and designs cakes (specially wedding cakes) for a living. Kane is a respect artist that works I can't stop loving this series. 4,5 stars I'm a fan of this series and this author since Come Away With Me.

They are both hard workers and devoted to their families, no matter how loud and messy that could be. They are loyal and protective about the ones they love. Their connection is almost instant and their feelings grew fast, but it was wonderful to watch them interact and develop their relationship. I also loved their families, and that was great, since they play a huge part in the story. And the bonus: from those who have read the previous books, we get to see so many faces, it was awesome.

    Absolute perfection! Fans of Kristen Proby will be delighted to return back to Seattle with this latest addition to the beloved With Me in Seattle series. Kane and Anastasia are fantastic independently, but together they're simply perfect! Both are very accomplished artists in their own rights, but together they inspire and motivate one another -- we should all be so lucky to have someone like them in our corner.

If you're a superfan (like I am), you can tell that this is where real life bled into Proby's art, as is evident from the dedication to her husband: "This one is for John, who encourages me to chase my dreams every day." And the swoons just keep on coming from there. Anastasia is a beautiful, independent & sassy leading lady who isn't afraid to speak her mind, but even she isn't immune to Kane's charms. He is just everything you want in a book boyfriend; the depth of his loyalty and devotion is beautiful to behold and his sweet words (and actions) will leave you in a puddle of feels. "How could I explain to her that the minute my eyes fell upon her in the museum, it was like recognizing a part of me I didn’t know was missing? I knew her, right then and there." Gah!! He's just everything, all the things!! You'll also be wowed with all the new characters and intrigue she sprinkles throughout the book. I absolutely cannot wait to get Asher's story next, and even after that, there's just so much potential introduced in Dream with Me, that you'll have no other option but to daydream about all the possibilities! ❤

This is Kane O’Callaghan and Anastasia (Stasia) Montgomery’s story which was a great addition to the series. Kane is a hermit, preferring to focus on his glass making art and at his farm. The last thing he wants or needs is a woman to complicate his life. Stasia is a designer of wedding cakes and art often gives her inspiration for her cakes. Bumping into one another at the gallery, they meet again at a charity fundraiser. This time the sparks fly and they spend an amazing night together. However can one night morph in to forever? The chemistry and attraction between Kane and Stasia is off the charts and I so wanted them to get their happily ever after.   Kane and Stasia are so good together but is Kane prepared to give up his single life, after all he has been on his own for a long time? Both will need to compromise, the question is, will they? From start to finish, I was totally invested in their love story and in my opinion this is another winner from Ms. Proby.

    3.5 stars I'd like to know why Proby decide to switch to "fade to black" sex scenes. Not that it effected the book at all but, girl expected some steamy times with Irish man and his woman. Excited to see if we get Archer's or Maggie's book next.

I was never a big fan of angst and I despise petty or stories with things that could be resolved with a simple conversation, I now know the reason I do look forward to each book Kristen Proby releases is that her unique style allows me to read knowing there is no petty, that it is love that dominates the story and yes struggles but the struggle will be adults making it work and grabbing a hold of all that love offers. Does this break old school "formula" romance novel crap... heck yes and I say Thank Godness. OK, I think I may be a bit snarky as I write this but you know what it is the truth. I love a love story that focuses on the love and wanting to make it work, FIGHTING to make it work.. because in the end that is LOVE. Love isn't easy but it is worth it in spades if you decide to embrace it. If I look back on the books I have loved, the select rave reviews I have written over the past 7 plus years, the books that grabs me are unique and not formula, they speak to my soul and put love front and center oh and usually the male lead wants really wants the partner in front of them (no running or indecisive needed for this reader) And should be noted that each year at least one of this books was Proby book, my 2019 Top Pick List had TWO Proby books! With reading time limited I want to read what I love and I know Proby will deliver that so she is a must read author for me. And now this review is long but as you can see it made me THINK and FEEL........ and since I haven't yet said much about this couple here goes. ...... Kane O’Callaghan is a world-famous artist and the way he meets Anastasia Montgomery warmed my heart and really set the stage for these kindred spirits.  From the moment they meet it is clear this is different for them and as I rambled about above I THOROUGHLY enjoyed baring witness to them falling in LOVE. This book immerses the reader in the Seattle world as it expands with more characters to cherish and more happys to look forward to in the Proby writing style (aka pure romance genius) I hope the O'Callaghan family captured my heart and I hope as the series continues they take center stage I am so excited this series is continuing and I look forward to return to Seattle with You Belong With Me and then Imagine With Me

I love the Montgomery clan!!! I have to say the more books I read in this series, the better and better they get. I thought Dance With Me was my favorite, but I think Kane and Anastasia just stole that spot. Dream With Me is exactly what I look for when I pick up a romance novel. This was the perfect mix of humor, love, romance, sexy times, and even some drama to keep things moving. Dream With Me is the 13th book in this series and it is just as great if not even better than the first book in this series. If you are a fan of family saga series, then this is one you need to read. I could read these books over and over again. Each book in this series can be read as a complete standalone. There are interconnected characters and you do see past couples in each story, but you will not feel lost if these books are read out of order. I thought the flow and pace of this story was perfect. Many will say that this is an insta-love story, and maybe it is, but it worked for me. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In this story we follow Kane and Anastasia. Kane is well known glass blower who has an exhibit in a museum in Seattle. He is somewhat of a recluse and on the private side. But he is good with that, that is until he sees Anastasia for the first time and is instantly attracted. Anastasia is a well known cake maker in Seattle. She is the cousin of the Montgomery clan. When she finds herself having trouble finding inspiration for her cake designs, she goes to her favorite museum and the exhibit by Kane O’Callaghan. Little did she know that on the day she is sketching a new design she will meet the infamous Kane. Can a chance meeting turn into something more?? Read this sexy and swoony story to find out. As always I loved seeing other Montgomery’s in this story, but I also loved getting to know Kane’s family. Both of these families have such a strong bond. I also loved seeing how Kristen set up the premise of the next book in this series….at least I hope it’s the next one ;) If you are a fan of Kristen’s books then you need to read this book!!!

Great read once again from this author. *Complimentary copy provided for an honest review.

    Kristen Proby is back writing in her Seattle world and this book had me hoooked. I could not put it down. You will see some familiar faces and you are introduced to even more characters from Kanes side of the family. (Can I just say now that I REALLY hope we get to see their stories in the future!) Kane is well, lets just say a broody, cranky artist but that is just the first impression. He will melt your heart in a way only a Proby man can. As Anastasia goes on to say It seems the reclusive Kristen Proby is back writing in her Seattle world and this book had me hoooked. I could not put it down.

Kane is well, lets just say a broody, cranky artist… but that is just the first impression. He will melt your heart in a way only a Proby man can. As Anastasia goes on to say “It seems the reclusive artist is a romantic.” This Irishman had me falling head over heels in love with him. Normally, I do not go for the artist type in a book. But, being a Kristen Proby book, I had to one-click and I am so glad I did. The detail the author puts into her books is unreal. I felt like I was in the exhibit seeing Kane’s work! The details are unbelievable . Secondary characters, of course you will see the Montgomery gang! And man has that grown over the years. You will meet Kane’s large family, which i will admit now that i am so intrigued by. Of course there will be a signature KP “Girls Night”. As always, this book had me hooked from the beginning and I felt as if I was right there with the characters. Loved every moment of it. I really hope Archer’s book is next because I can NOT wait!! Another 5 stars from Kristen Proby!!

    Ive been a fan of the With Me In Seattle series right from the beginning, but some of the books stand out more than others for me and Dream With Me is one of them. I cant say enough how much I genuinely liked Anastasia and Kane. Their story was heartfelt, sweet and warm. There was no angst (which is a plus for me), a great connection between the H/h and engaging side characters.

They are a fun and feisty addition to the storyline, and I can’t wait to read more about them. Kristen Proby also has a knack for writing strong female heroines, surrounding them with loyal, smart and funny friends and family. She writes the best girls night out scenes, always nailing the hilarious tipsy talk. This was a standout for me and I look forward to what comes next. ARC provided by the author.

    Dream with Me by Kristen Proby Back to Seattle, 5 stars To be completely transparent it was the With Me in Seattle series that hooked me on Proby forever ago. There was just something about the relationships and people that made me a fan. So, when I saw that Proby was taking us back to Seattle, that we were going to see old faces I was sold. I loved Dream with Me. It was the perfect balance of old and new. Old long-lost friends (previous couples) and new couple and some new people.

I loved Dream with Me. It was the perfect balance of old and new. Old long-lost friends (previous couples) and new couple and some new people. I loved how both Kane and Anastasia were artists in their own right and encouraged each other. If you take a chance on Dream with Me, I hope you love it as much as I did. When Kane saw the woman sitting in front of his work sketching, he wanted to get mad but he found himself intrigued. When he approached her she took his breath away. One of those moments he knew he would kick himself for not getting her name once he walked away. But fate had his back and put her back into his line of sight. The question is, is this the real deal or will it go nowhere? Anastasia loves her job but sometimes her creative well runs dry and when it does she likes to go and look at other peoples work. Not to copy it of course, but to get those creative juices flowing. What she didn’t expect was to meet the amazing reclusive glass blower Kane. She didn’t think he would want her for more than a night. But sometimes people surprise you. Plot-5/5 Characters-5/5 Heat-5/5 Writing style-5/5 Overall-5/5

I loved that we got to see some characters from past books, as well as got introduced to who’s next in this series. I always love when authors can revisit and build on a series and book world that readers love so much, and this book is exactly that. Can’t wait for the next book though, because based on the teaser we got in this book it’s definitely going to be interesting! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Their relationship happened quickly and I think I would like to see things happen a little slower. Along with their story we have Kane's Sister discovering secrets of her late husband and Asher discovering secrets of the person he loved and searching for her. This overshadowed the novel a little in my opinion, because I found myself more curious about Asher's story than the novel itself. A plus point is that here we were able to review the Montgomery’s clan again and it was nice to see old acquaintances and see how they are doing. The book is a good choice for those who like I Received an unreleased copy of this book "

    Oh how I love a good Irish accent. Major Swoon happening with Kane O'Callaghan. I loved the passion of Kane and Anastasia! My favorite stories are the instant chemistry romances. I love them!!

Then of course majorly bummed when I was finished in two days. Always up for a reread though :) I have my fingers crossed that we will get to hear more about the O'Callaghan family. I loved meeting all of them. All of these characters are just so well written that you can't help but care and love for them. I want to know everything about them haha. I can't wait to see who's next.

    This was a nice book! I really enjoy reading about this family! Every time is blust, especially when they are all together! Kane and Anastasia were a nice couple, but I feel like I was missing the spark between them! Can't wait for the next books on this series!

    4 swoony stars! If youve read any of the books in this series then you will know exactly what to expect before you go in. A sweet, sexy, fast-paced romance with pretty much no drama. Its Kristen Probys formula, and it was just what I was in the mood for, so I really enjoyed this one. Anastasia Montgomery is a cousin to the original Montgomery crew of the series.

If you’ve read any of the books in this series then you will know exactly what to expect before you go in. A sweet, sexy, fast-paced romance with pretty much no drama. It’s Kristen Proby’s formula, and it was just what I was in the mood for, so I really enjoyed this one. Anastasia Montgomery is a cousin to the original Montgomery crew of the series. She designs and creates elaborate wedding cakes, and when she is in need of inspiration to heads to the glass museum where she loses herself in the creation of her favourite glass artist, Kane O’Callaghan. But when she accidentally meets him at the museum, he’s a total jerk to her. Much to Kane’s delight, they run into each other again shortly after that. He wants a chance to redeem himself with the woman he can’t stop thinking about, and they end up sharing a scorching night together. Anastasia thinks it’s just for one night, but Kane has other plans. “I wasn’t done with you, Anastasia.” “You weren’t?” I shake my head and bring her knuckles to my lips, nibbling them softly. “Not even close. I don’t know that I’ll ever get enough of you.” Kane and Anastasia are pretty much perfect for each other… actually they’re both pretty perfect. Both incredibly driven, but open to everything that’s happening between them, and they happily follow their hearts. It’s all very insta-lovey, but Proby makes it work. It’s sweet, passionate, honest and functional, and I loved the love story. The only drama occurs outside of their relationship, and seems to be a setup for future books for Kane’s family, which would be great! They’re a fantastic bunch, with some of their stories already set up, and I’ve love to read more about them. Previous characters from the series appear, and I enjoyed seeing them again – it’s a highlight of this series that you never really say goodbye to anybody, they keep popping up over and over again and I love that. “Uh-oh,” Brynna says. “Here comes Caleb.” “Caleb, I’d like to introduce—” “Fine,” says Caleb, Brynna’s husband, holding his hand up for me to stop talking. “I know who you are. And I don’t give a flying fuck. If you hurt her, I’ll kill you and make it look like you did it to yourself, do you understand me?” “Well, that’s lovely,” I mutter. “And unnecessary.” “He’s here?” Will chimes in, hurrying over. “Dude, we’ll kill you. But welcome.” I enjoyed this one. It’s quick, easy, drama-free swoon, and a great read. 4 stars. An Advanced Review Copy was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Sometimes you read a book and you immediately fall in love with the main characters and thats exactly what happened to me with Dream With Me. Yes, they dont get off on the right foot immediately, yes they have a one night stand, yes after a couple of days he tracks her down because he cant get her out of his mind, and yes, she is more than happy to see him again. While at times I struggled with what seemed like contrived plot points; this couple and their relationship made me happy. When wedding Sometimes you read a book and you immediately fall in love with the main characters and that’s exactly what happened to me with Dream With Me. Yes, they don’t get off on the right foot immediately, yes they have a one night stand, yes after a couple of days he tracks her down because he can’t get her out of his mind, and yes, she is more than happy to see him again. While at times I struggled with what seemed like contrived plot points; this couple and their relationship made me happy. When wedding cake designer Anastasia Montgomery needs inspiration she goes to one place, the Kane O’Callaghan glass museum. When she is confronted by a grumpy man accusing her of copying his work she tells him exactly what he thinks of him only to find out he’s the artist. When they meet again the next evening a one night stand ensues, but can that one night lead to more? I enjoyed the fact that Kane and Anastasia were pretty straight forward in their relationship, that they enjoyed each other immensely, and had no problem expressing how much they enjoyed each other both in and out of bed. While the book moved at a good pace, I felt the characters were well developed and this couple knew what they had was special even if it was quick. Both Kane and Anastasia were committed to their careers and busy people, but they worked to make sure they spent time together when they could. While I felt a big blow up that brought them closer together was a bit contrived (and foreshadowed numerous times that it wasn’t a surprise), I just kind of blocked it out and tried not to let it ruin the story I was enjoying. Dream With Me was a sweet, romantic yet sexy love at first sight story I thoroughly enjoyed. Review copy provided for a voluntary review.
