When I’m With You
Hope Town Book #3
Author: Harper Sloan
Publication Date: April 26, 2016
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
My rating: 5/5 Stars
It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.
The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.
He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.
When I’m with You can be read as a standalone. Each book is interconnected, so if you would like to get to know the previous couples that show up in this book, I recommending reading book 1 (Unexpected Fate) and book 2 (Bleeding Love) first.
Finally, we get Nate’s story and Harper Sloan did NOT disappoint!!!
Nate was first introduced in book one, Unexpected Fate, as Dani’s crazy, fun little brother. He showed up again in book two and continued his crazy antics. Now, finally in book three, we get to find out what’s behind Nate’s sexy self. Nate is like the ultimate alpha male—sexy and dominant with a seriously dirty mouth—but he has the biggest heart and you can’t help but love him.
Ember is Maddox’s daughter, she’s the baby of the group. She has loved Nate since she was a teenager, probably before. However, he was six years older than her and their families wouldn’t approve, not to mention, Nate had no idea how she felt, until… Ember had her heartbroken all those years ago and after avoiding Nate for years, she is back and Nate has noticed.
Nate and Ember’s story is just as hot and sexy as the rest of the Hope Town series books, but this one is different. This time, the thing keeping them from being happy is them. There are outside influences, but they aren’t impediments.
When I’m With You is a heartwarming, sexy friends-to-lovers tale that with have you fanning yourself one moment and swooning the next.
