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.
Guest Reviewer Tina Says…
First of all, I would like to give a huge Thank You to Three Girls and a Book Obsession for giving me the opportunity to review this book!! Safe With Me by Kristen Proby became available to be purchased earlier than anticipated and needless to say, I was quick to buy it! Anyone who knows me and my love of books, knows that I have a major girl crush on Kristen. I have fallen in love with every single one of her With Me In Seattle Series books and I was anxiously awaiting Safe With Me. I feel like I have been in a little bit of a “book funk” lately and I was banking on this book to get me out of it; it did not disappoint.
All of the With Me In Seattle series books revolve around the Montgomery family, each book focusing on one couple. In this installment, we step into the lives of Caleb Montgomery, uber hot former Navy Seal, and Brynna Vincent, beautiful single mother of twin girls, Josie and Maddie. Brynna is the cousin of Stacy, Caleb’s sister in law. Brynna must leave her life in Chicago after being a witness to criminal activity, that has now put her life in danger; so she goes “home” to her family in Seattle. Caleb steps up to the plate to offer his services to protect Brynna and her beautiful daughters.
“No need to be scared, baby. I’ve got you.”
In hopes of getting her life back to normal for her daughters, Brynna welcomes Caleb into her home and how could she not… she gets to enjoy watching him do his daily workouts in her back yard to keep that hot military body of his perfect! They have a chemistry that dates back to them being at prior family events (you MUST read the other books in this series to fully understand how awesome this family is) and Brynna is just waiting to get a piece of tough on the exterior, teddy bear on the inside, Caleb. While things are heating up with Brynna and Caleb, Caleb is still dealing with the demons from his past. Brynna and her daughters are starting to crack beneath the surface of who Caleb really is, but will he let them? Will Brynna’s own demons find their way to Seattle?
“She deserves much more than anything I can give her.”
So, what did I think of this book? I freakin’ loved it!! I love books with a strong female character and Brynna lived up to that in every way. She was a wonderful and caring mother to her beautiful daughters, but yet vulnerable around Caleb. She could give Caleb a piece of her mind, yet still need and crave his touch.
“That’s just it, Caleb. I just want you.”
And then there is Caleb…. swoon! He is strong, disciplined, tough, and yet he is also soft, warm, and loving. What woman wouldn’t love that combo in a man? And it doesn’t hurt that he is easy on the eyes and is there to be Brynna’s knight in shining armor.
“There will never be another woman who can make me feel safe, make me feel happy.”
And not to be forgotten, you have the pleasure of keeping up with the rest of the Montgomery clan. I wish I could hang out with them for just one night. Between poker night, game night, and fun times at the bar with chicken wings, you will be laughing your butt off. It doesn’t hurt either that you would be getting to hang around with a sexy movie star, a hot as hell fighter, heavily tattooed rock star, and an athletic stud football player! How can you say no to a night with them?
I give this book 5 super sexy and amazing stars. Safe With Me brought me out of the book funk that I was in, to say the least. I can’t say enough food things about this book and the whole series for that matter. This book, like her others, had me crying one minute and hysterically laughing the next and then sweating because of her steamy scenes. At the end of each book in Kristen’s series, you get a slight sneak peek into the next book. Book 6 will be titled Tied With Me and is about Matt and Nic; it can’t come out soon enough!
