4 stars!

A short and sweet instalove story that is functional and full of chemistry, and left me with a big grin on my face.

Reed Taylor is a hardworking businessman who gets the shock of his life when a four year old daughter that he had no idea even existed is dropped off on his doorstep when her mother dies. But he is instantly smitten and turns his life completely around to make little Piper the centre of his world, and that includes giving her the best Christmas he possibly can.

This is a short and sweet holiday novella that hits the spot at this time of year.

Reed Taylor's early holiday gift was a four-year-old daughter, Piper he never knew about. But this work-a-holic is taking his Daddy duties seriously and wants to give her the best Christmas ever. He is honest, outspoken, and used to being in charge. He knows what he wants and is not afraid to go after it.

And it seems that one thing he now has his eye on is his new designer, Noel Thompson. She was recommended to

Well.. I finished this book yesterday, but I couldn't decide how I felt about it. I have two reactions:

1. Aww... that was so sweet and sexy. Noel (what a great name for the MC of a Christmas novella!) was sweet and sassy, funny, smart, confident and talented. I liked her. Reed was sexy sweet take charge alpha male who knows and goes after what (who in this case) he wants, and as it turns out knows how to say "I'm sorry". And meant it. He's also a really

Kristen has outdone herself with this Super Sexy and Sweet Holiday Novella! Wonder With Me was the perfect balance between all things Christmas and Romance. It was just what I needed to take my Christmas Spirit to the next level.

Reed Taylor has never been a fan of the holidays, nor has he taken time outside of work to do anything except build his company. But when he learns he has a daughter only a few weeks before the holidays, he makes some big changes to bring a smile to Piper’s face during a difficult time.

Noel Thompson is especially busy during the holidays, but decorating for the holidays is one of her favorite parts of the job. A last minute job to fully decorate for Christmas has her excited to get down to

I adore Kristen Proby and I have for quite some time. Ever since she introduced is this beautifully written and compelling With Me In Seattle series crew, I've been a huge, huge fan. I'd follow this chick anywhere when it comes to her addicting words and swoony characters.

Wonder With Me is the latest novella in this series and while it can completely stand alone, don't short yourself on this experience plus it's holiday themed to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Reed Taylor, a successful investor in Seattle, was surprised when he is visited by a social worker with an unusual "gift": his 4-year-old daughter he didn't even know existed.
Piper's mother, Vanessa Downey, had recently passed away. She was a quick affair he had about five years ago.
Having to completely change his single life, Reed bought a beautiful home and hired someone to decorate the house for his first Christmas with his daughter; He wanted everything to be absolutely perfect, especially

This is the perfect holiday novella to dish out a dose of the cozy feels! I'm totally smitten for Noel and Reed! Combined with cute little Piper, myheart is bursting for this instant love connection. I mean this blurb is straight out of a Hallmark movie and I LOVE IT!!!

There is something about Kristen Proby's writing that completely draws me in. Her characters are fun, witty, mature, and charming. I certainly found that to be the case with Reed and Noel (and Piper!). I am a sucker for a single-parent book, but especially a single-dad (such a sexy quality!!). But after that initial meeting between Reed and Piper, I was completely and absolutely in love! The love that Reed has for his daughter is what all daughters should feel. It is a true testament to Proby's ...more

A sweet Holiday romance!

This is a novella about Reed and Noel. We met her in Love With Me, as she's Joy's sister.
Reed's just found out he has a daughter and suddenly he sees himself as a single father of a 4 year old girl. He is loving and caring and will do anything to make Piper happy.
Noel is an interior designer and is hired by Reed to decorate his house so Piper could have the perfect Christmas.
What started as a business transaction, soon is filled with sexual tension and so much chemistry.

What a very fitting read for the coming holidays! I do love my Christmas themed stories so this was just what I needed. It had all the charm and cheer. An interior decorator making a whole house Christmas themed felt like movie magic. Noel and Reed plus Piper make for one cute pseudo family. Noel and Reed are buys but they make time which is always important I think. Not much hiccups here they got along well and we get some other cameos from the With Me books.

Wonder with me was an entertaining holiday read. Just what I’ve come to expect from a Kristen Proby.

Noel, Reed and Piper were the perfect little family. I loved these characters together and then set in her With Me in Seattle series and you have pure gold.

Wonder with Me is a standalone novella that is told in Dual POV. You do NOT have to read the rest of the series to enjoy this story.

This punchy little novella brought all the feels to the page and left me with a smile on my face…it was just what the cold winter evenings call for.
Reed had no idea that he was a father but when his charming four year old daughter Piper enters his life, he quickly came to realise that nothing would; ever be the same again because there is nothing that he wanted more than to be the best father he could. But his work life balance was less that equal and as such he had decisions and adjustments to

I've been hearing good things about Kristen Proby and the With Me in Seattle series for quite some time now, so I jumped at the chance to check it out via a standalone novella released through 1,001 Dark Nights. I'm very happy I did because I loved "Wonder with Me." It was an incredibly sweet story featuring likeable, well-developed characters and an enchanting Christmas setting.

The male lead character, Reed, was very charming, and it was easy for me to understand why Noel, the female lead,

I have to tell you I LOVE Kristen Proby. She is definitely a gifted author and some of her stories I love more than others and this one was a huge hit. I has a lot of heart, romance and Christmas and is prob one of my favorite books she has ever written.

It is part of the Seattle series but is sorta loosely connected. The female lead in this story is Noel Thompson and Noel is the sister of Joy Jace's wife in Love With Me. We do get to

The wonder in a child’s eyes during the holidays…the wonder of a new love just starting to bloom…the wonder of a life so unlike the current one. These wonders and more are what readers witness in Kristen Proby’s newest release, WONDER WITH ME.

There’s something about a single-dad story line that always gives me the feels. And the way Proby crafts Reed Taylor’s relationship with his daughter, four-year-old Piper, is a connection forged in love, even though he didn’t know about her until now. Noel

I’m a long-time Kristen Proby fan. I started reading her books with her very first With Me in Seattle series book, Come Away With Me, way back in November of 2012. I was hooked on her books from then on. For the last seven years, I’ve gobbled up (no pun intended!) every book of hers that I could, and there’s a good reason why. I simply love her style of writing that makes me fall in love with all of her characters over and over again. And Wonder With Me didn’t disappoint, either.

I do so love a man who knows exactly what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it and that describes Reed Taylor perfectly in Kristen Proby’s Wonder With Me.

With her mother dead, Reed steps up big time to make his child feel safe and secure and to give her a holiday she’ll remember forever.

Wonder with Me is a novella in the With Me series by Kristen Proby. It’s also part of the 1001 Darks Nights world. T can be read as a complete standalone but it will make you want to read more in the series. I have read most of the books and it’s one of my favorites! Damn...I need to get caught up!

Reed’s life changed the minute she walked through the door into his office two months ago. His daughter, Piper turned his world upside down and he has loved every minute of it. Their love was instant.

In the blink of an eye his life was turned upside down in a good way. Discovering he had a daughter and he will now be her only caregiver was a lot to take in but Reed does it all in.

Wonder with Me by Kristen Proby is single Dad themed novella that is a perfect one sitting read.

This book is laced with emotions and epic banter. Reed and Noel was two successful professionals who within a few short chapters embrace that life is what you make time for!

The single Dad aspect of this book was a powerful punch and really well done. Piper was adorable and it was clear from the moment she enters Reed’s universe that she is his world! Nope, not telling read the book.
