At first, I thought the cover was very unfitting for a mafia romance, and then a few chapters in, I realized this book read more like a cheesy chick-lit with some diluted mafia themes thrown in here and there... so, I guess the cover is fitting after all??

Honestly, I think this book had great potential. I liked the beginning but after the heroine goes on the run, I kind of lost interest. I personally didn't like the heroine, some of her decisions didn't really make sense to me. Worst of all, she

I luvd this book. I've alway been a huge fan of Kristen books but I was a lil nervous when I heard she was goin to start a mafia connection. But I have to say I didn't need to at all. This book was an introduction to the Martinelli Family and I'm dying for more.

Elena is a great character she is so strong I luvd get from the start. Being the daughter of a Mafia boss isn't easy and not wanting to be a part of the life is even worst. She knows what it's like but she never

5 ‘ You’re Worth It’ Stars

Oh wow!!! You Belong With Me is a heart palpitating, passion filled blend between the most perfect of second chances and the most taunting of mafia romances. Truly the BEST of both worlds packed up in one EPIC love story! Mind and heart gripping in every way!

Ahhh, the feels… Even as a die hard fan of Ms. Proby’s writing I was not prepared for this book, because right there on page one, the very Prologue, it wrecked me and brought

Wow....this was so much like a Kristen Proby story but it was also different from what we have come to expect.

There were some parts I had to remind myself that Kristen was the author. She added kind of a dark and gritty side to her writing in this book. I enjoyed this side of her writing and I can’t wait to read more about this Mafia family she has introduced us to.

I am devastated. I didn't like the book before this one but what I liked about it was the glimpse we got on the couple in this novel. I wanted this book about Archer and Elena in her mafia family so badly. It broke my heart how disappointing it turned out to be.

This book really starts off with a bang. Really intense and for a quick moment I wonderd if I had actually picked up the wrong book. I mean KP went for it with the horrible Mafia father.

I really loved Archer. He had me from the previous books and Elena was gutsy, if not a little naive but I really wanted them to be together. I enjoyed their story, but I'm afraid it didn't keep up that intensity KP started it off with. Also, though the family and friends were present, it

A different spin for the typical mafia romance book.
Quite enjoyed how the story was presented, and the fast-paced writing made it easy to finish this book.
Loved the hero, Archer. After 12 years he wasn’t going to give up on her love for Elena not for anyone or anything. He had some balls of steel in those last chapters.

But I have to add that Elena felt to me like she had “horchata en las venas”. Her reactions to some things were underwhelming and expected more from her.
3.5 stars

This is a really sweet read. A second-chance-romance with a mafia twist, it’s a beautifully romantic story with a bit of suspense, and I really liked it.

A part of the With Me in Seattle series, this is the story of Archer Montgomery (one of the cousins of the original group of characters and brother to Anastasia from the last book in the series, Dream With Me). As this is the 14th book in the series, there is some character crossover, but you can easily read this one (or any of these bo

Archer Montgomery is lost without Elena, he still longs for her even though she broke his heart twelve years ago. Elena Watkins feels the same way but she knows that staying away from Archer is keeping him alive. These two belong together but someone had other plans for them.

YOU BELONG WITH ME starts off with a young love that was torn apart and then brings us a great second chance romance that has a ton of suspense to it.

You Belong With Me is book #14 in one of my all-time-fav series, With Me In Seattle. I thoroughly enjoyed Elena & Archer's story. Kristen Proby has hit the nail on the head once again with this emotionally compelling, steamy and swoon-worthy romance involving two amazing characters you can help but fall in love with. The chemistry and love between these two shines with fiery passion.

This is an ARC review. All opinions are solely my own.

You Belong With Me by Kristen Proby is book 14 of the With Me In Seattle series. This series is everything that I look for in a series. I want intertwined friends and family. Even after 14 books in a series it is still fresh. While these book are a series they are definitely stand alone novels. The reader does not need to have read the other books to follow along.

You Belong With Me is the fourteenth book in the With Me in Seattle series by Kristen Proby. Each book in the series is a stand-alone and unless you have a very detailed family tree, you will get lost with all these characters. Thankfully, most of the Montgomery's don't appear for a while and it's just Elena and Archer.

Second chance romances are tricky for me and I usually don't like them, especially when one or both parties say that they had not been celibate or even worse, sleeping with half t

A second-chance romance that will grip you from the first page. Kristen Proby blends heart-stopping mafia action with her signature feel-good swoons in a story that will have you holding your breath and rooting for Archer and Elena’s happily ever after with all your heart.

Mafia based stories are not my favourite because of the twisted sense of family and loyalty, especially with the females of the family being used as bargaining chips, such a patriarchal misogynistic and brutal society.

So for Elena to elope with Archer at 18 was a direct violation of everything her mafia boss of a father had set for her. The consequences, ruthless and heartbreaking for both Elena and Archer.

Through the years neither Elena or Archer has been able to move on from the other, it is a

5 Stars!

Kristen Proby was one of my very first go-to, one-click when you see their name no matter what it is romance authors and not much has changed in all those years. We've come a long way since Come Away with Me, where it all started and she has only gotten better, more addicting.

She surely knows how to write the most epic, beautiful, unforgettable, irresistible love stories that just stick with you forever and never, ever let you go.

I haven't read one of these books in so long and I am not sure what was stopping me. I love Kristen and this book was no different. Archer was completely devastated when Elena left him after they eloped at 18 and he had no idea why she left. It was young love, but real. She is the daughter of a well known mob boss and her life was in danger and she left to protect herself as well as Archer. Archer had really never moved on so when he found out why Elena left him and that she really did love him, ...more

I get so excited anytime I get to go back to The Montgomery Family and all their cousins and friends. And I'm super stoked that You Belong to Me is the launch of Kristen's new Mafia Series.

Elena and Archie were high school sweethearts, who thought getting married would allow them to escape Elena's family - who are reigning Mob family in the Seattle area. But the only thing it did was enrage her father and ultimately making Elena ghost Archie in order to save his life.

The next installment in the With Me in Seattle series is finally here and Kristen Proby does not disappoint with her first foray into the Mafia family genre! You Belong With Me has all the hallmarks of a With Me in Seattle book; family, laughs, & lots of love...but there's so much more too. The suspense and edge of danger will keep you turning the pages from the moment you sit down. Plus, the new family members introduced will make sure the series continues for quite some time.

You Belong With Me was a true KP romance. It had all the layers I’ve come to expect from Kristen’s books but somehow this book is so much more.

I have followed my way through the Montgomery family series and I love that Ms Proby has been able to bring us different independent stories along the way. Once again she has given us a new interesting twist, by adding a little bit of Mafia to it. This second chance romance has a little bit of suspense added in there just to keep you on your toes.

You Belong With Me is taking us back to the Seattle Series with a Mafia twist and I am loving it. Elena and Archer are young and in love. They want to separate themselves from Elena's powerful family. The Martinelli crew is the high and mighty mob family.

This series has hooked me from the beginning, but these characters are something else. They are devoted to each other, regardless of how much time has passed. They will always be there for each other, no matter what. I love how we see glimpses

Lots of drama and suspense in this story. We were all rooting for Archer and Elena after Dream With Me. Torn apart when they were younger, that finally come together. Elena comes from a very powerful and dangerous family. Archer never gave up on Elena. Finally together it takes a bit and some hurdles for them to find their HEA.
