Book Review: "Safe With Me" by Kristen Proby

(With Me in Seattle Series, Book 5)

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

6 STARS!!!!!!!! 


*sigh* This book…. This…book. Wow! I read it in ONE SITTING! For the life of me, I could NOT put it down. With Me in Seattle is my all-time favorite series, and out of all the books in it, Safe With Me became my favorite. I’m seriously blown away!  A true page turner!
This is the 5th book in the series, but the 6th installment if you count the 1.5 Novella, Underneath the Mistletoe With Me, which is where we officially meet Brynna, Stacey’s first cousin. And YES, you SHOULD READ ALL THE OTHER BOOKS before starting this one. =)

“It would destroy me if you or those babies were hurt, Brynna. You are necessary to my survival, goddamn it, and I’ll do whatever I have to do to keep you safe…”

In book 4, Rock With Me, we got snippets of Caleb and Brynna’s story, and Kristen Proby did an amazing job incorporating the timelines. Since I don’t do spoiler reviews, I’m NOT going to go into details regarding the plot. It’s one of those books, where you really need to read it and experience it for yourself. Just trust me when I say, you won’t be able to stop turning the pages. There’s plenty of drama, twists, angst, humor (of course, these characters are freaking hilarious), romance, and – this goes without saying -- HOTNESS! *whistles* Boy! There were some lip-biting, thigh-clenching, steamy scenes in this book!!! *fans self*

“…his eyes are ice blue and when he pins me in his stare, I swear he can see right into the heart of me.”

This book has everything going for it. It was just perfect. There even were quite a few scenes where I literally laughed out loud -- most of those included Maddie and Josie. HA! Those have to be THE CUTEST 6-year old twins EVER! I promise, you’ll love them!
OH! Want to know something just purely awesome?? There’s DUAL POV!!!!!!!!! Squee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I read the chapter heading “CALEB”, I literally did a happy dance! I love, love, love male POVs!!! Especially, when it’s from one of the “Kristen Proby Men”. They are freaking HOT and 100% SWOON-WORTHY!!! I’m seriously in love with Caleb Montgomery!

“She’s so fucking beautiful she takes my breath away.”

*Sigh* I love him. I swear, this book is a brilliant work of art. I loved every part of it. The characters were as always, AMAZING, the story line was CAPTIVATING, and the ending was PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


“You are the best part of my life, Bryn.”
