About ALWAYS WITH YOU


Ruling his LA hotel empire through determination and hard work, Reid Davenport is a mystery to many. Despite the media’s interest in him, Reid steers clear of the limelight--until his life is broadcast in the tabloids, endangering not only his privacy, but that of his parents and his little sister.

He’d do anything to protect them…except listen to the fiery and intelligent PR pro, who's as beautiful as she is tempting.  Every time she walks into his office, he fantasizes about bending her over his desk and kissing her. Every time she smiles at him, he wants to pull her closer and not let go.

Hailey Connor doesn’t take on uncooperative clients. But the second she meets Reid, she’s compelled to stay and help, even if she must fight his  own broody ass to do it. He’s bossy, demanding and so sinfully alluring that she knows she's in over her head. Reid may be infuriating, but when he talks about his family, she can’t help but melt a little.

With every kiss, they grow closer. With every touch, they fall deeper. They’re opposites…yet perfect matches. But when their different worlds collide, will it tear them apart or bring them together?

⭐🌟⭐🌟⭐

"Always With You" brings the journey of the brilliant Connor family to its end. It's everything I expected from this author. Everything feels so real throughout the book.

Hayley has played an important role in the series, but her own story is so much more. It gives a good insight of the sort of person she is. Her life experiences are very well fleshed out.

Reid is quite the hero. He navigates through what some would see as a hindrance superbly well. 

When Hayley takes Reid on as a client, he comes across as being difficult, and she doesn't take on uncooperative clients. Once they have established how to handle his controversial issues, they work together well. The chemistry between them is real, but the complications that come with Reid's problems lead to more problems. Due to his difficulties, he has become a creature of habits. He also goes after what he wants. Can he make changes to get what he really wants? 

Hayley has been one of my favourite Connor since the beginning, and reading this shows what she has been through and how strong she is. Reid is very compassionate and willing to compromise when there is a need. 

It didn't take me too long to devour this exquisite story. Reid and Hayley make the perfect couple. This book also revisits other members of the family. The family support is exceptional. Having read the Bennetts story and now, the Connors, I hope that there is more goodness to come from this author. Fully recommended. 

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

Read an Excerpt from ALWAYS WITH YOU


“You can’t just go around commanding everyone to do what you want.”

I loved her fierceness. Her fire. It drew me to her like nothing else.

“Generally, I can. But that wasn’t my intention here.”

Honestly, I had no fucking idea what my intention had been. I’d called Cameron on a whim, which went against everything I knew about myself.

“So what was it, then?” Her eyes flashed. I wanted to kiss her. Lift her up in my arms, hold her against that bar and bury myself inside her.

“You’re beautiful when you’re all worked up like this.”

Her cheeks flushed. “I’m serious. I want an explanation.”

“I don’t have one, Hailey.” I stepped right in front of her, breathing her in, losing myself in her citrusy scent, the shape of her lips. “I’m not an impulsive man, never have been. I don’t make spur of the moment decisions, and I definitely don’t act irrationally.”

I’d always been the type to think everything through, to weigh pros and cons before acting. I wanted to do everything differently with Hailey. Correction. It wasn’t simply that I wanted to. It was something stronger. I had to.

I cupped her cheek. Her eyes widened, but she didn’t attempt to move away.

“Since meeting you, I keep doing things I never thought I would do.”

I cupped her other cheek as well, and when she parted her lips, darting out the tip of her tongue just a bit, licking that lower lip, I couldn’t control myself anymore. I buried my hands in her luscious hair, kissing her hard. I needed to explore every single curve.

Most of all I needed to know what she needed and give her exactly that.

I moved to kiss her cheek, up her temple, then down to her neck. Hailey hummed slightly, and it was all the encouragement I needed. I slipped a hand between us, touching her breast, circling the nipple until I felt it tighten and push through the fabric. I remembered how it had felt to touch her in the pool, how I’d barely kept myself from slipping my hands under the tiny bikini and touching her bare skin. I couldn’t hold back tonight. It was impossible.

I lifted her dress, turning rock hard when I realized she already had goose bumps on her thighs, as if she’d been yearning for my touch just as much as I’d been craving to give it to her.

Review 
5 Stars
🌟⭐🌟⭐🌟

This family is growing on me as much as the Marcellos did. Every story in this series has so much feel that I could almost be there with the characters.

Chris is so different from his identical twin brother Corrado, yet there are so many similarities. The love for his family and his loyalty to those diserving are delightful, but beware when he is crossed. 

Val has suffered a few tragedies in her life, but she has good reasons to stay strong. She hasn't had much luck in her life. Hope is about the only thing that she can cling to.

When Chris volunteered for a rescue mission, he didn't know that his life was going change. He didn't know what to expect on this mission, but his observation skill and his experience tell him all he needs to know. His reaction to Val and her daughter is not what they are used to, and their interactions are beguiling. The chemistry between him and Val are so palpable that it seeps through the pages. Can Val dare hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel? 

Chris is everything a hero should be. He is charming and always keeps his promises. Val risks everything, hoping that she will get the freedom she craves. The story revolves around trust, hope, love and compassion. It's a bumpy ride, but one so worth taking. The end is absolutely breathtaking. Another Guzzi smasher.
