Maybe it wasn't the smartest choice for me to start the series with the 6th book, but it is whatit is.

Despite the fact that this is a 6th book, it is easely readable as standalone.
But, there is one fact you should be warned about if you decide to read just this book: you won't get attached to characters and, because of that, you won't be so pleased with the story.
At least, that is what happened in my case.

The story follows Zach who is a complete control freak that had a terrible accident while m

I always like grumpy man, especially an injured and vulnerable one. Zach was seriously pissed at everyone who try to come and comfort or help him in anyway. He was verbally abusive towards his assistant, Gabriella. I didn't read the previous books, but from what I heard he was an ass to her even before he was injured from a climbing accident.

Anyway, what really bugged me is the way this story executed with too many filler and everyone is talkin

I’ll Be There is a story about triumphing over life’s obstacles.

Zach is a successful business man who finds himself is severely injured during a mountain climbing excursion. He is not handling his new life circumstances well, so his family and business partners conspire to get him back on his feet.

Gabriella is Zach’s administrator assistant. She has had a crush on Zach forever but never acted on it. Gabriella has been seriously burned by an alleged past relationship at work and has kept their re

I was just so excited about reading this book, I'll be there. I have so thoroughly enjoyed it and the entire series as well. The love between this entire Montgomery family.

This book continues from the last one after Zach huge accident while mountain climbing in Alaska . Knowing him as not a very happy hurt guy who would have spend some time healing after his accident.

When it comes to Gabriella Martine. Who has worked with him already for many years. She will be able to handle him. Especially aft

I'll Be There was an OK read.

I was really looking forward to reading Zach and Gabriella's story, my attention was peaked from the previous book Meant for You it was obvious they had some serious sexual tension going on and I was excited to read how these two hotheads would get together.

While the storyline was good and it held my interest I found myself not liking Zach very much. He was such an ass, some of the things he says to Gabriella were very hurtful and imo not easily forgiven or f

I really just can't get enough of these Montgomery Brother stories so I'm a bit sad to see the series end. William is a match-making genius and clearly the most important character in each book. (Edited: This wasn’t the end...there’s more to come!)

Zach was frustrating as hell. For being a brilliant business man he was pretty dumb when it came to the obvious. The way he treated Gabriella for so long after the incident with her family was extreme for the situation and uncalled for. I just wanted

I was ecstatic when I found out that Samantha Chase was releasing a new Montgomery Brothers novel. This family is such a joy that it is no hardship to visit time and again. I'll Be There is Zach's story. Zach has been successful at whatever he touches. His personality, focus, looks and even his family name has opened doors but his ambition is the key to all of his triumphs. When larger than life Zach is forced down to earth after an accident he is anything but happy. Gabriella is a formidable ma ...more

Thank you Netgalley for the copy in exchange for an honest review!

I'll Be There follows the story of Gabriella and Zach. Gabrielle is Zach's assistant and what started as them being close and good friends turned to them being hardly civil. But when Zach is involved with a mountain climbing accident, he needs more help than he'd care to admit. Gabrielle is sent to try and get him back on track and he is less than pleased. But will them working closely help them resolve their past issues? Can the

While Samantha Chase has good writing skills, I thought the logic behind this story was a little flawed. With a simple effort to communicate instead of drawing important conclusions about someone he worked with, Zach could have avoided a lot of conflict and achieved a happy ending. Instead, he seemed to have anger management problems and didn't seem a good risk in the matrimonial pool to me. We're talking about accepting a rumor about a person he worked closely with for six years without giving ...more

Okay, flawed dark moment

This was an okay read, nothing spectacular. I liked the deep past between the romantic leads, mutual admiration spanning years. Good peripheral and family relationships. And I liked how it the author wrote about the male lead Zach overcoming a near-fatal fall from a mountain..his physical therapist was the most sensible one in the bunch! On the downside, the romance was too schizophrenic, some of the actions made no sense at all, and the dark moment was very very weak.

I always enjoy reading Samantha chase books, she always hooks you from the first page till the last. This book was so good. It has it's ups and downs, it make you wonder what will happen next. This is a must read. Get it today.

I have been waiting for this Montgomery brother to fall in love for quite some time and while I'm glad to finally get his story, I'm sad to see this series coming to an end.

A powerful and successful businessman, Zach Montgomery has always prided himself in being the best, being in control of his life and making his own rules. Zach is a go-getter and an overachiever, so his inability to rally quickly from his climbing accident and having to depend on others for help is a big blow to him and he's

Originally reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf

I’ll Be There is an intense story with at times, almost brutal dialogue from our so called hero. Hmmm… can you tell Zach isn’t exactly my favorite person in this continuation of The Montgomery Brothers series?

In many ways Zach is an adrenaline junkie. His need for adventure and to out do his most recent accomplishment is second only to his brutish, arrogant, pure jerk interactions with Gabriella. This time his climbing adventure didn’t go as planned and Zac

It’s rare to find a male matchmaker, but in I'll Be There (The Montgomery Brothers #6), Montgomery family patriarch and romantic William finds an interesting excuse to shake up the life of his nephew Zach. Zach is in bad sorts as he struggles with recuperating from a terrible accident. So uncle William decides it’s time to wake Zach up with a tactic meant to build his confidence and heal, all the while getting the girl that is clearly perfect for him, his assistant Gabriella Martine.

Zach Montgomery is part of the wealthy and powerful Montgomery family and he's used to doing what he wants and living life however he sees fit. He has a high-powered job within the family business and is a risk taker in his personal life, too. And when he suffers a life threatening climbing injury, his newfound vulnerability makes him even more difficult.

His longtime assistant, Gabriella Martine, is used to difficult men and she's always been able to stick up for herself just fine. She always th

At first when I started this book I was a little lost but the more I kept reading the more I started to remember what happened in the previous book. Although this could be read as a standalone I highly suggest you read the book before this one to get the full understanding.

With all that said I enjoyed Gabriella and Zachs story. It Starts off with Zach doing physical therapy and trying to get his life back after falling off a mountain that he was climbing. He has let himself go and is grumpier t

I'll Be There is the sixth book in Samantha Chase's Montgomery series. The characters and their journey set this book apart from the other books in the series. I'll Be There examines what happens when a driven businessman and athlete is severely injured in a sports- related accident. Zach's journey takes him from denial, recovery and finally acceptance as he comes to terms with the fact that he almost died. The author offers a realistic portrayal of a bitter, independent man who doesn't want ass ...more

Loved this book..Book 6 in The Montgomery Brothers.
Zack Montgomery was having a though time after his accident. He knew all his family wanted was to try and help him, but it just wasn't easy. His father and uncle blow his mind with what they presented to him. There done with his attitude. The last person he expects to see is his assistant Gabriella at his door, and what he tells him. He wonders why she's here? He doesn't want any part of her seeing him broken like this. Out of the question he r

Let me start by saying this is the first book I've read by Samantha Chase. When I read the synopsis, I thought this would be right up my alley, and I was excited to get started.

For the first two-thirds of the story, I enjoyed the characters and their tempestuous interactions. It made for engaging reading, even when you wanted to smack some sense into them. Zach's character was absolutely spot-on when he was giving everyone a hard time, though his "revelation" seemed a bit forced. Gabriella was p

I was so happy to finally get Zach and Gabriella's story and Ms Chase made the wait worth while. We've had bits and pieces of them throughout the last two books in the series and in this story we finally understand what is behind all the snark between these two. There has always been such passion between them but neither seems brave enough to take a chance. That's where matchmaking Will Montgomery comes in!!

Where does one start with Zach and Gabriella. Boy oh boy was this a good read, I have been waiting for this story since we first got a glimpse of Gabriella back in "Meant for You". Samantha Chase really has done this couple justice, from the way the story is told I just fall more and more in love with Gabs and her determination. The way she handles Zach by not taking any of his crap, trying to be a bigger person when he is a complete jerk is really well written. There are times throughout the bo ...more

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

If you haven't read the previous books, I certainly recommend that you do - if nothing else that it puts Zach in a very clear position in his family and workplace. The previous books deal with William Montgomery's meddling ways in his sons and nephews/niece's romantic lives. It is a fun dynamic which continues in a similar vein here. In other words, even more than a usual romance novel, we know that WM gets his way!

TW: abusive relationships

I love Samantha Chase, but this one missed the mark, y'all. I saw it on the shelf at the library, and picked it up because I hadn't read this one in the series yet, but I almost couldn't finish it. I don't write reviews often, and almost never negative ones, but this is not a is a straight-up abusive relationship.

There are several references to Zach being hostile and verbally abusive to Gabriella (for years! YEARS!!!) before the events of the book, unrelated to

This was such a hard one for me. I've read this author before and while it was hit or miss, I truly wanted to punch Zach in the face. Then I wanted to shake Gabriella for always sticking up for him. He was nothing but a big immature spoiled bully. I get stubbirn, but he was beyond. He put up such prideful walls to the point of being verbally abusive that I had a hard time focusing. Yet despite being hurt (as well she should be) Gabriella defends him when his family calls him out on his abuse. Sh ...more

Zach is a workaholic to put it mildly. He lives for the job and for adventure. Suddenly his adventures have put him out of commission at work so what's a guy to do? Harass his long suffering assistant naturally. Gabriella loves working for the Montgomerys - even if her boss can be a lot to handle. It doesn't hurt that she finds him charming and good looking. But this injured, angry Zach is a bit different to deal with and it seems that Gabriella is the only who dares to. As she meets his stubbor ...more
