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.

3 Stars

As usual, I have a few complaints because I’m complicated. Actually there were a lot of things that made me roll my eyes but I won’t go into details because I would probably massacre this book and I don’t want that. Because this was a solid read and I really enjoyed it.

So let's just say it’s not the writing, it’s the content. I mean, the story was okay (though a bit too formulaic and predictable for my taste) but some of the scenes were “what the hell just happened” weird.

Harper Sloan is one of my favourite writers and let's just say I was freaking excited to finally read this book. Harper never disappoints me and this was no exception! Again, another outstanding love story!

When I'm With You is the third installment in the Hope Town series, the spin-off series of the Corps Security one. This time it tells the story of Nathaniel 'Nate' Reid (son of Axel and Izzy Reid, a man who has always been sorrounded by love and now has to deal

I am ecstatic that I ended up liking this book as much as I did. I was honestly a little nervous about it because the last book in the Hope Town series lost my interest a bit and I was scared this one would follow that same pattern. Luckily I went in without my hopes too high and this ended up being the same Harper Sloan style of writing that I fell in love with in Axel.

Emmy has been in love with Nate for as long as she can remember. Their families are super close so she was

Another hit by Harper Sloan !

A long time ago I've fallen in love with this amazing author and her phenomenal Corps Security series. Harper Sloan delivers again with the spin off series Hope Town a bunch of beautiful, all-consuming and addictive tales. She has such a way with words!

When I'm With You is the third book in the Hope Town series, and it tells the story of Nate Reid (Axel and Izzy’s son) and Emberlyn Locke (Emmy & Maddox’s daughter). I absolutely adored it! I felt every emotion they

I just loved this little possessive line and of course I adored Nate and the things he was ready to do for his little firecracker.I can officially admit that Nate is my favorite so far!

In his arms, I know that no matter what,
as long as I'm with him,
we can win any fight that is in our path.

This was me when I finished this book and I had all these mixed feelings about how damn great

“Yeah, Emberlyn Locke, I’m beyond fucking ready to be yours.”

What a great story! “When I’m With You” is the third instalment of the Hope Town series, which is a spin off from the Corps Security series. I haven’t actually read book 1 or 2 as of yet which is ok as they are all standalones; after reading this book, I will definitely go back and read them. I’m not sure why I haven’t, because I love Harper Sloan’s writing and imagination. She knows how to write about hot “swoon-w

Now, several years later things change when Emberlyn turns 21, Nate is in a changing phase of his live and there’s nothing stopping anymore. And when Emberlyn suddenly gets in danger, Nate will stop at nothing to make sure this time she will not slip through

This story pissed me off!

Nate was a disgusting slut who was too busy sticking his dick into multitudes of females to bother with the woman he supposedly loved for years and YEARS.

"No one knows about the six months I worked at a strip club out of pure boredom and a sex drive that was borderline sex addiction levels bad. Pussy just fell in my lap when I danced at the club in Athens."

Ember was just another pathetic h who pines for this loser for YEARS as he sleeps his way through the female populat

I just love this series, just like I loved the CS series. I think it's great to get to read about the Corps Security crew's offspring and I really like catching up with all the old characters.

This time its Nate (Izzy and Axels son) and Ember's (Maddox and Emmy's daughter) turn.

I loved Nate in the previous book and couldn't wait for his didn't disappoint ;)

When I’m With You is the third book in Harper Sloan’s ‘Hope Town’ series. I always look forward to any new release by Harper, but I especially love her Corps security series. These books aren’t technically Corps books, but Nate is Axel and Izzy’s son and Emberlyn is Maddox and Emmy’s daughter, so we get so much of all the Corps family that we love so much. It makes me so happy to see all my favorite characters again. I love this series so hard so when this hit my kindle, I read it s

There is just something I love so freaking much about these books. Yes, they are over the top, but the joy and excitement I feel when reading overshadow everything else.

If you have read the Corps Security series you know Nate and Em. These two grew up together, but were not really close since there is a six year age difference between them. The story begins with us seeing an eighteen year old Ember poor her heart out to Nate, only to have him turn her down.

Let’s be honest, from this moment on

So it’s no secret that I am a big fan of the Corps Security Series and I absolutely adore and love each of those characters that comprises the series. And so when Harper decided to do a spin-off with the kids from the Corps Security Series, I was beyond thrilled. Pardon my language, I was fucking ecstatic. I thought no one could replace Cohen Cage as my top fave in the Hope Town Series but Nate Reid stole my heart right off the opening p

Ok so it's conclusive this series just isn't for me - I've really tried but overall the plot and characters are lacklustre in the extreme.

The attempts at angst rather than having me crave more, just have me rolling my eyes and skim reading. Perfect for the week I've had where my mind just needed some down time, where it could get it, but no way I'll be coming back to this series.

My feelings for this book are the same as my feeling for the last two!

This was a very confusing read for me. I felt just gross how he just f@&$ nameless girls and put her face on them and why? Some really bullshit reason that I will not get into. Again I find I am in the minority here in my dislike of this story. She almost has sex with the guy then goes off and sleep around with 3 other guys for hey the kicks I guess. I don't think they have this epic love at all. He was hands down an asshole and when he feels like Hey I am ready to f@&$ my friend out of the frie ...more

Loved it and don't care that I'm stayed up way too late to finish it. It was as awesome as the previous books. Nate and Ember are just as amazing as their parents. I loved how much Axel and Maddox are in this book, and they help Nate. Loved that Nate had a little Dom in him. There's a nasty ex to take care of. Plus there are four epilogues. Can't wait to see who will fall next. ...more
I was really so excited to read this book because we get hints of a romance between Ember and Nate in the first books, but when I finally got around to reading it I was a bit lot disappointed.

I felt it was too angsty when there was really not a good enough reason for all the angst and for the MCs to be apart from each other. I felt that the reason that Nate didn't pursue Ember when she told him she loved him at her graduation when she was 18 was pretty much lame. The reasons he gave was that he

I wanted to love this one, but alas it was just OK for me.

I LOVED Nate and Ember, and the hot sexy times. I loved seeing and catching up with the other kids and the guys. Unfortunately besides the aforementioned sexy times. I found this one to be boring and DRAG a lot. It takes basically half the book for them to even get together, and when they do it is sweet and sexy, but nothing happens. Oh we have an oddly placed OW scene (the clichéd half naked OW waiting for him in his office) tha

When I got When I’m With You on my kindle, I was so excited, there may have been flails involved! This series has been so addicting, and I can’t get enough!

Nate and Ember have had a rough road. With their age difference and families being so close, there were some reservations for having a relationship. So they got pushed apart by good intentions, which only lead to being without the person they were meant to be with…

This book gave me so many feels. Nate, oh, Nate. He is definitely an alpha. H

OMFG this book had me trapped the entire day. Even with my sick Baby girl I had to Finish this book today.
Ladies let me tell you that Nate Reid gives his Dad a good run for his money. No he could never be better than his dad but damn that's some close 2nd. He is Hot as hell.

I cannot give this book more than 3 stars because even though I enjoyed this book a lot, I think it lacks the wow factor that I was looking for. I feel like this book has all the ingredients to Harper Sloan 'romance book recipe' but has nothing out of the ordinary. Not that it's a bad thing. I think fans of Harper Sloan would definitely adore this book.

This book has some very cliche tropes. We have the jail-bait forbidden love thing going on in the prologue, over-protective crew as it always i

Sweet, scorching, and soulful, When I’m With You is an unforgettable friends-to-lovers romance that entrances you from the very first page and leaves you aching for more. Pulse-pounding. Heart-hitting. Soul-searing. This story bleeds angst as it wraps itself around your heart, feelings free-falling all over the pages.

Oh, why did I wait so long to meet the magical masterpieces of Harper Sloan? I’ve heard the Harper hype and now know that Harper’s books kick the hype’s tail as they are so much

Nate-Dog! Woooooo! Also I was so surprised when he called lle himself that, Axel just doesn't seem like the type of guy who has such a goof off of a son. And he seemed a lot more laid back in Liam's book than Dani's.

Super excited for this.

I have read all the books in the corps security series and in this new hope town series. It is very weird though the fact that I've never thought of Harper Sloan as one of my favorite writers when I actually love all the books I have read of hers.

When I'm With You was no exception.

I wanted Nate's book since he was freaking born (not really) I honestly thought his book was going to be the first in the series if not, the second. Joke's on me, it was the third. We were given hints of who the heroi
I still rate Corps Security as one of my favourite series. This spin off, featuring the now adult children of the Corps guys, is just as fab. If you want a loyal, HOT, sweet and totally alpha hero mixed in with a likeable heroine, plus gorgeous family dynamics and minimal angst, then read this book
The formula has been done before and many elements of this book run through others in both series' , but they are well written novels that suck you in from the start. I find myself helplessly addicted

This is the Third book in the Hope town series. The book is based on Nathaniel Reid ( Nate ) and Emberlyn Locke ( em)
As with all Harper's books her men are Smoking Hot,Alpha males. Nate Reid is no different.
We first meet Nate and Emberlyn way back when Harper introduced the world to her first series, Corps Security. Nate is the son of Axel an Izzy Reid and Emberlyn is the daughter of Maddox and Emmy Locke.

I have to confess I read the blurb for this book and I wasn’t excited like I normally am by a Corps Security or Hope Town novel. I don’t want them to not be together or to fight the attraction, I don’t want one of them to be ruined damn it. Then I got up and my pre order was on my kindle all shiny and sparkly so I opened it up and it was a one sit read for me. I literally couldn’t put it down.

I should have known that would be the case, all of Harper’s books have been amazeballs.

So Nate was

I absolutely LOVED this book. I knew Nate's book was going to be epic for me and Harper Sloan did not fail to deliver! I was rooting for him to fall in love with Ember from day one. The journey was long and feelings were hurt but I think in the end it was all well worth it. I love the multiple epilogues. Cherry on top!
