Spotlight Read & Review - Forever With Me by Kristen Proby

Today's spotlight read and review is Forever With Me by Kristen Proby. This is the final book in Kristen's With Me In Seattle series. If you haven't read this series yet, I urge you to go pick up book 1, Come Away With Me, which is currently free on Amazon

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the With Me in Seattle Series comes the end of a saga… 

Dominic Salvatore seemingly has everything a man could want. He’s found a new relationship with his father and the entire Montgomery family. His vineyard, Coppa di Vita, is a success. There’s only one thing that eludes him: a certain driven, intelligent, sexy as hell blonde named Alecia. 

Alecia works tirelessly building her event planning business. It’s the most important part of her life. Despite the beautiful, lavish weddings she organizes, Alecia is convinced that the idea of true love is a myth. While Dominic is a sexy, intriguing man, welcoming the handsome Italian into her bed, and her life, is a risk she’s not so sure she’s willing to take. 

However Dominic isn’t used to taking no for an answer, and it’s not long before these two are burning up the sheets and discovering a connection that neither can deny. But will it be strong enough to last forever? 

“I’m going to eventually make you understand how amazing you are, tesoro.” – Dominic Salvatore 

Review by: 

As excited as I was to read the final installment of Kristen Proby’s With Me series, I must admit that I put off reading Forever With Me for a few days.  I was not ready to say goodbye to one of my all-time favorite casts of characters.  However, all good things most come to end, and so I dove into Dominic and Alecia’s story with a mixture of excitement and sadness.  Proby did not disappoint.  This was a lovely conclusion to series, full of the humor, steam and heart I have come to expect and adore.

Just like every other man in the series, Dom stole my heart.  There is something very attractive about a successful, confident and kind-hearted man.  It was obvious how sincerely he appreciated the way the members of the Montgomery family had opened their arms to him and embraced him as if he had always been a part of their family.  I loved the way he interacted with both the guys and the girls.  Their easy banter and genuine affection for one another made me smile and laugh over and over again.

Alecia was one tough cookie.  Time after time she stubbornly refused Dom’s advances.  Given the way she was raised and her romantic past, it was understandable why she did not believe in love.  I hurt for her knowing that she had never been treated the way she deserved.  She had a wonderful and fulfilling career as an event planner and was content with that life until sexy and persistent Dom came along and started to breaking down her walls.  They had fantastic chemistry, but more than that I loved the emotional connection they shared.

I appreciated the way Dom didn’t hide his feelings for Alecia.  He was always honest with her about the way he felt and his intentions.  I was also really impressed with the way Alecia stood up for herself and faced her past.  As usual, there were plenty of family moments and antics that had me alternately laughing and crying.  The icing on the cake was the fabulous epilogue that made my heart so happy.  It is so bittersweet to see this wonderful series come to an end.  I can honestly say that I have loved every minute spent with every character.
