SQUEEEEEE!!!! I read both Here With Me and Choose Me back-to-back because I quite literally COULD. NOT. PUT. THEM. DOWN!!!! Together they tell a complete story and IT WAS AWESOME!!!!! OMG. My heart!!! Gah!!! The feels!!! I was glued to the page from start to finish and just couldn't turn those pages fast enough.

Choose me is the continuation of Here with Me and it was one of the most anticipated sequels of the year for me. I knew that this book would be really angsty and I wasn't wrong about it.
If you haven't read book 1 , this review may contain spoilers for you.

Nate gets back home and he finds his twin brother. The brother that was supposed to be dead six years now. Evan had been told that Nate knew about their condition at the jungle, so he's suspicious and very angry a

I read the first book and it was an OK read for me. Nothing mind-blowing but we were sort of left in limbo and I wanted to find out who got their HEA.

There was a bit of suspense thrown in which was all nicely wound up in the end.


Evan and Nate - found them a bit childish. Let's kiss her in front of the other so that we can get a rise of him. High school much?


It's probably me as this is getting some great reviews. I just thought it was all rounded up too nicely. There is some line in the book abou

Choose Me is the follow up to the heartbreakingly beautiful Here with Me. If you haven't read the first book, don't even bother reading this review. Just do yourself a favor and go back now and read the first book.

In Here with Me, Ryley is stuck between two brothers. Evan (her first love and the father of her child) and Nate (her best friend). The pain is fresh as the decisions must be made. Everyone is in limbo. It is

“…she’s a woman being torn in half by two men, both of whom she loves for different reasons, both of whom want them for themselves.”


Well I guess I am probably going to be in the minority here so I am just going to put my thoughts and opinions out there. But these are just that, my thoughts and opinions. I absolutely loved Here With Me, I loved the way the story was told, loved the characters and the plot was really building to so

I was disappointed with this one. I enjoyed the first book but ended up disliking Evan, Rylie and Nate. I'm sure I'll be in the minority with my opinions. It's just another affirmation that I need to not ever read love triangles period.

Great book. The suspense was maddening. It kept me on edge throughout the book. I kept on wanting to know "whodunnit". There waere a few times I really wanted to stop and go on GR to read spoilers but thanks to my buddy Linda~Sassy~Classy who told me she would do bodily harm to me if I did. ;) I'm glad I didn't because it made it so much better to let the story play out.

Yes yes yes!!! I wasn't sure how I felt after the first book about who should get the girl. Normally I know who I'm rooting for and only want THAT guy for the heroine. But when it comes to the Archer boys, you really can't pick one. There's no favorite. And that was probably a first for me.
In this book Nate is home and really confused, rightfully so. There stands his dead brother with his son and girl. It was absolutely fantastic being inside Nate and Evans heads. What they felt about Ryley, wh

Well I guess I'll be joining the minority here, but wow this book was lame. I'm not sure why I bought it in the first place when the premise of the first book was plain crazy. If I were in Evan's shoes, there would be absolutely no forgiveness for either Riley (hate that name btw) or Nate. How could you want to be with her after she slept with your brother? and the whole 'oh oops well we thought you were dead' bit doesn't excuse it! If my sibling died I would never think it would be appropriate ...more

OMG! SO SO SO SO SO GOOD!

Heidi NEVER lets me down.

I don't even know how to put into words the emotional roller coaster that this book took me on. There is just SO much goodness to this story.

CHOOSE me is a continuation of the first book, HERE WITH ME. We pick up with both Evan and Nate coming face to face and basically "duking it out" (not really, but you get the gist) for Ryley's love and affection. But throughout all of that, there is an

After devouring Here With Me I was lucky enough to get the next instalment of The Archer Brothers and Ryley's truly emotional story.

If you've read the first book you will surely have divided loyalties as I did even more so at the start of this book.

Nate arrives home from his mission to find his twin brother he buried walking through the door with his fiancé and child EJ.

It's really hard to review this book without giving away huge spoilers all I can say this is not just a romance it is a book wi

I'd like to give this a .5 Star rating if that was possible but I settled for 1 since I fucking finished the entire thing. I don't even know how or why I even bothered.

The first book was passable but this second one was a complete waste of time not to mention money. I'm so angry right now!

After the back-and-forth can't decide who she'll choose crap, redundant lines, redundant emotions, angsty lame confrontations the story and 'conflict' just got resolved like that? Does Cara have magic ***** or

Here with Me was one of my top reads last year but it left me hanging so I've been waiting impatiently for this second installment! I could not wait to dive in and find out which Archer brother Ryley was going to choose. Or, if she was going to choose either one...
In the first book we met Evan Archer who comes home from an unusually long and secret military mission to find out that everyone had believed he was dead. In his 6 yr absence he missed the birth of his son and his fiancé

THIS BOOK! This book was on my highly anticipated list of 2015 after reading Here With Me (which made my top list of 2014). What can I say other than Heidi did such an AMAZING job with this series (so far because YES there is ONE MORE!). Completely captivating, exciting, heartbreaking yet uplifting - Heidi had my heart in her hands from the very first page of Here with Me and throughout Choose Me and yet again, I devoured this book completely because I could not stop reading nor did I want to ...more

In the conclusion to this series, we finally get the answers as to what kept Evan away for 6 years, and Riley FINALLY chooses a brother.

When the last book left off, Nate returned home to find out his brother was not only alive, but trying to move in on his fiancé who he used to be engaged to before being declared dead. When I type it now, it sounds ridiculous, but I can assure you that the author makes it work. While this homecoming should be a joyous one for the brothers, their fighting over a

Never had I been more nervous and excited over a continuation of a book like I had for this one. And let me tell you, it sure lived up to the build up and anticipation even more than I could ever have imagined!
In Choose Me we get the alternating POVs of the Archer twins. Evan had been declared dead 6 years ago and is trying to reclaim his life which he feels his twin brother Nate stole while he was away. At the end of Here with Me, Nate has just come back from a mission only to find his brother

This was my most anticipated book of 2015! I needed my answers!! Who would Ryley be with? Could Nate and Evan repair their relationship enough to work together in finding out who was behind Evan’s “death”? I was scared and anxious to read this one. Here With Me blew me away. I wasn’t sure if Choose Me would have the same impact but Heidi never disappoints. The way she has everything come full circle is amazing. Choose Me had me on the edge of my seat.

Of gosh what to write about Choose Me...This book/series has you on such an amazing emotional roller coaster that you find yourself not wanting to get off. Once you start you just can't stop, you go from having the mystery and suspense behind Evan and his team that you are desperate to find out who is behind it or why they did what they did; to the love you feel for and from Ryley, Evan, and Nate..then you throw EJ into the mix and you can't help but melt and love that kid!....Heidi just blows ...more

Wow! This book was AWESOME! This story had it all: love, drama, angst...I was firmly Team Evan going in to it, but now, I am Team Archer. Nate definitely pulls at your heartstrings (of course Evan does too), but at least now we know where Nate was coming from when he decided to take up with Ryley. And can I just say that I absolutely LOVE EJ!!! The way he talks is adorable! This story ended exactly like it should have and I cannot wait to read the next one! Heidi McLaughlin, you are a genius!!!

Best book ever! I love the way this book ended...so perfect! The story was sooo heartbreaking, but sooo sweet! I am so glad that everything worked out for both the Archer brothers. Now I really need McCoy's story. He needs a happy ending too!!

Im not sure where to begin with this review, Choose Me is hands down the BEST second book I have ever read in a series. Heidi’s writing in Here With Me was BRILLIANT , her writing in Choose Me has far surpassed that. I can’t begin to tell how much I love this book. Grab your tissues, take a couple of days off of work, (one for reading and one for recovery MAJOR book hangover) plan cereal for dinner for your family, lock yourself in your room and plan on not seeing anyone until you have finished ...more

I was given a arc in exchange for my honest review.

I have been waiting for this book for what feels like forever. After how it left, I needed to know how it ended. I have been dying to read it. And sadly, I was disappointed in many ways. I can't really say much more, because there is so much that can give stuff away. And you guys need to make that up for yourselves. The story itself was very good. Intriguing. Many twists and turns and unexpected who did its and all that. It was a very cool stor

Never has a book scared me as much as this one going in. We were moved by the story of the Archer Brothers and the one woman they both loved - Ryley, in Here with Me. Now Ryley needs to make a choice. Which Archer Brother will she end up with? The love of her life, Evan, who disappeared, thought for dead, six years ago. Or Nate, the ever present, protector, stepping in as he promised his brother he would, to guard Ryley and her son EJ.
