Until There Was Us
Megan Montgomery has always been the careful type. Except...one time at her cousin's wedding when she threw caution to the wind and had the steamiest hook-up of her life. But that was two years ago— why can't she stop thinking about it? So when Megan accepts a job at her cousin's company, she does everything she can to avoid Alex—knowing he'll shake up her carefully crafte...more
Her phone beeped, and she let out a small whine. “That sounds like reality calling.”
…her mother was a firm believer in short engagements and long marriages. Basically she believed in fairy tales.
I wasn’t flirting with anyone. I was merely being polite to the woman who has the ability to spit on our food.
You realize that every time you talk about your trip into the woods, your encounter with what I’m guessing was a squirrel gets wilder and wilder right?
I was stunned when ...more
Years later, Megan returns and Alex will do what it takes to convince her he’s the man for her.
Chase provided a great balance of family drama and romance creating a fun and entertaining contemporary romance.
This is a book of second chances. With all second chances, you can't wait for the characters to communicate their true feelings and just let it happen.

Megan has been trying to get her father's acknowledgement and approval of her chosen career for as long as she can remember, without success. She has been killing herself working 80+ hour weeks, having no social life, and basic ...more
Two years prior at her cousin’s wedding Megan Montgomery shared a passionate weekend with her cousin’s friend Alex Rebat and while they both felt something between them, living across the country from one another had their relationship fizzling before it got started. Now Megan has moved to Portland to work for the family’s company and that puts her in Alex’s hometown. Until There Was Us is probably one of the more emotional books in this series, and it was pretty damn perfect.
Megan is a ...more
I was absolutely thrilled to receive the seventh book, The Montgomery Brothers. This most wonderful book is set on Megan Montgomery and she meets another gorgeous guy. Now years later she has to deal with meeting him again. I completely adored this marvellous romance!!
Stumbling through the crowds at Portland Airport. Megan carried her bag, whilst still reading her messengers on her mobile, it was difficult. Meeting up with cousin, Summer Reed, with her newest and ...more
I liked the characters both main and secondary and I will suggest to dive into this world even if you haven't read another book in the series. The book can be read as stand-alone, but you might get the urge to read the rest of the series. I am hooked and I will continue reading the series. Megan's brother seemed like an int ...more
This was a very low-angst, sweet second chance romance. I can't say this is a couple that I fell in love with easily because, frankly, I didn't relate to either one of them.
Megan is a major workaholic and is not good at personal relationships. In fact, she blew her chance at a possible relationship with Alex Rebat two years ago because she's so career-focused. Don't get me wrong, career-focused is awesome but when it takes over every other aspect of your life, it's not so great. As yo ...more
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
UNTIL THERE WAS US is the seventh novel in the successful Montgomery Brothers series by Samantha Chase. As a fan of this wonderful series and this author, this story of second chances hooked me immediately and I polished off the book in one sitting.
Instead of a Montgomery brother playing the lead in this story, we get the story of Megan Montgomery, a workaholic who, up to this point, has managed to avoid getting swept up in the family business. When asked ...more
They’d gone walking through the garden that was lit with twinkly lights, and Alex had surprised her with a kiss. And that was the moment she knew she wasn’t going to her hotel alone.
Until There Was Us is the seventh installment in Samantha Chase’s Montgomery Brothers series. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed other books I’ve read by Samantha – and impulsively decided to dive into this one without reading any of the prior books. ...more

I love the Montgomery family and was happy to be reunited with them in the seventh book of the series, Until There Was Us. This is Megan and Alex’s story and it took me on an emotional roller coaster. The prologue set the stage and took place two years before the story begins. The epilogue was a nice surprise and takes place two months after the story ends. I look forward to reading more in this series since there ...more
I read romance novels, so clearly I’m a romantic at heart. But apparently I’m also a cynic, because starting out this book and discovering the main family - men included - are a bunch of matchmakers had me rolling my eyes. Confession: this is my very first Samantha Chase book. But I see her books all the time, so I decided to give her a chance. This book had me a little concerned from the beginning of the prologue. It didn’t get any better for me when ...more
This is the 7th in the series - and if you are a Montgomery fan then you will definitely enjoy this book. As well as Megan getting her HEA, we also catch up with Zach and Summer ... previous beneficiaries of William Montgomery's matchmaking!
This time though, it is wife and sister-in-law who decide that they know how to find Megan a match ... well really they saw her with Alex at Zach's wedding 2 years ago and start plot ...more
Once again we are among the festive, rowdy and "almost" perfect Montgomery.
I said almost because, like any human being, like any family, they have problems to be solved. And believe me, there are several. But still, they are strong and charismatic characters.
This is the time of Megan Montgomery's story.
A computer girl, a techie, who loves her job, but who most often exaggerates the time she spends on it, keeping all the people she loves an arm's length.
And t ...more

Megan Montgomery has always been careful...except that one time she threw caution to the wind and hooked up with a sexy groomsman at her cousin's wedding. But that was two years ago--so why can't she ...more
Alex was a perfect hero. We met him in Zach’s story, and I instantly fell in love with him. He was sweet, sexy, and knew how to build Megan, who had a bit of low self worth at the beginning of the story, up to value herself and all she’s done. Megan was a bit of a different heroine. She didn’t have the in your face, in kick butt attitude about her. It was subtle, and perfect for he ...more
