This Montgomery Has a Head for Business
And a Heart for Adventure
Zach's perfect world is turned upside down when a climbing accident leaves him broken, angry, and maddeningly dependent. In his slow quest for recovery, Gabriella is always there to help...but as Zach comes to see his beautiful assistant in a new light, he is forced to re-evaluate what it really means to be a man worthy of Gabriella's love.
I received an ARC of I’ll be There for an honest review.
I was excited to read I’ll be There after I read Meant for You a while ago.
Zach Montgomery was in a terrible accident that almost killed him. Now he’s been homebound trying to recover and being a total jerk about it. Gabriella has worked for Zach for a long time. The two of them used to be really close until one day Zach came to work and began treating her and everyone else coldly. Now either Zach takes Gabriella’s help or he has to hand over his company to his best friend. Zach has been struggling with feeling like less than a man since he fell and doesn’t want anyone, especially Gabriella to see him weak.
Zach for most of this story was a total jerk to everyone, especially Gabriella. He really struggles with something not being easy for him and for him not recovering right away. He takes everything to the extreme and is just a total butt head. Honestly Gabriella is the nicest person every to put up with that abuse. I think it’s good Samantha Chase gives us a look at what’s going on inside his head otherwise I swear no one would be rooting for him in the end. Especially after you see the reason why he’s so rude to Gabriella, which is for a big nothing. Ugh. He makes A LOT of mistakes along his journey throughout this book and I think he comes out all, the better for it.
Gabriella has had a hard life. She’s never been good enough for her family and after a bad experience at her last job she enjoys working for Zach and his family. She finally has the stability and friendship she’s always craved. When Zach is injured she takes over working for him and helping his best friend take care of the company. Gabriella is super smart and super sweet. I’m glad she found her own path and put her foot down a bunch of times with Zach, she’s exactly who he needs.
I really enjoyed I’ll be There. I’ve only read this book and Meant for You but I enjoyed I’ll be There so much more than Meant for You. I think because for a lot of it I wasn’t rooting for the two of them to be together and a lot of the time it seemed like they wouldn’t which was definitely a twist I enjoyed.
Really good book hope to one day read the rest of the series.
She was nearly out of breath and wished to God Zach would say…something. Anything. He continued to stare at her—hard. It was almost too much to bear. It was enough to make her squirm. Then, without a word, he reached out and banded an arm around her waist and hauled her roughly against him. Her eyes went wide and she gasped right before his lips came crashing down on hers.
It was pointless to fight it, or pretend she wasn’t interested. Her arms went around him, her hands raking into his hair. It was hard to say who was in control because they were both so out of control.
Zach pushed her back up against the kitchen counter, his entire body pressed intimately against hers. Gabriella slowly rubbed against him and smiled at the feel of his hardened length against her belly. Of course it didn’t matter what part of him was pressed against her, Zach Montgomery was solid muscle from head to toe and she wanted every inch of him whether she was pissed at him or not.
Gabriella purred as Zach’s hands began to wander and reached down to the hem of her skirt and began to lift it. He had it up around her thighs when he finally raised his head. They were both breathing hard as he looked down into her glazed eyes. “Damn, I’m ready to take you right here,” he growled. “Tell me you don’t want me. Or this. And I’ll stop. But if you do, say something now so we can take this inside and I can finally do all of the things I’ve been fantasizing about for five damn years.”
Slowly, Gabriella licked her lips as she lowered her hands and smoothed her skirt back into place. Keeping her expression neutral, she almost felt bad when she saw the hint of vulnerability in Zach’s eyes. Then she reached for his hand and led him from the room. With a knowing smile she said, “I guess it’s a good thing we have all day then. I’d imagine we’ll need it to cover those five years.”
Zach groaned with relief. “Sweetheart, one day won’t be nearly enough.”
New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011.Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.
When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
