Blurb:

Nate:

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.

Emberlyn:

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.

 

P’s Review: 4 STARS

While I love the Corps Security books, I’m loving the Hope Town books just as much….could it be because now I get to read about the second generation? Maybe, or it could just be the way Harper Sloan brings characters to life.

When I’m with You is Nate and Ember’s story, and it is a story that made me smile the whole way through.

Nate is…Nate, his humor and aloofness is what he shows everyone. He may have his reasons for being who he is, or he can just be Nate. I like him as just Nate, I mean w While I love the Corps Security books, I’m loving the Hope Town books just as much….could it be because now I get to read about the second generation?

When I’m with You is Nate and Ember’s story, and it is a story that made me smile the whole way through.

Nate is…Nate, his humor and aloofness is what he shows everyone. He may have his reasons for being who he is, or he can just be Nate. I like him as just Nate, I mean we all have things we would rather not let everyone around us know about, so why not show them what they are used to? Now, that in no way means Nate is perfect, because lets face it, no one really is. He has made a few mistakes, and when it comes to Ember, those mistakes aren’t just blips on the screen, While he doesn’t quite know just how bad his mistakes are/were, he will and it won’t be an easy fix for him or Ember.

Ember is…Ember, she has had her heart stomped on by the only man she’s loved. Now while the first time was somewhat understandable, the second was a bit harder to get over.

When the truth is revealed, it will take a bit of work for both of them, but they always have the support of their parents, and extended family behind them, so even when it may seem like too much for one or both of them to handle, the people that help hold them up are just what they both need.

There is humor in here, I mean what else can you expect from Harper Sloan? She can make us laugh and cry, which just means she is able to let us live in her words, in her books, and in her imagination. But there are also times where my palms were sweating and my pulse raced, I mean really I feel like I’ve just ridden a rollercoaster when I finish a H.S. book, the rush of fear and excitement, the laughter and breathlessness that comes with the ups and downs. I enjoy every single time I feel as if I’ve lost my stomach with each turn of the page.
