4.5 ‘At Home’ Stars

Oh sweet lord, who can resist this panty meltingly sexy irishman?! No one, that’s who! The story setting, the runaway bride concept, the complex but oh so human and lovable characters, coupled with the most tingling of chemistry, gave us in Escape With Me, truly the most perfect of escapisms. Sweet, sexy and heart warming, Keegan and Izzy’s love story is what this romantic reader’s dreams are made of!!!

With this banging start of Isabella running away from her wedding, I was i

My Rating:
Favorite Quotes:

… you don’t deserve to be the back-burner girl…You’re a front and center, rolling boil kind of girl.

Women. I can’t go a day without her, yet sometimes, I want to tumble her right into the sea.

“I can totally keep a secret,” she says, but I know better. “If you tell anyone, you won’t be my favorite anymore.” The smile leaves her face. “Well, that’s just mean.”

My Review:

This was a fun and engaging read while pleasantly low on conflict or angst. I enjoyed the delightful re

It doesn't matter how long it may be, whenever I pick up one of Kristen Proby's With Me Books, I am home. I am immediately comforted by the way Proby knows how to present family, concern, humor, frustration, and love. It is a gift and in Escape With Me...That is exactly what you are able to do...and during these stressful times, it was a sweet read.

I’m never quite prepared for how swept away I am when I’m back in the Seattle Universe. The O’Callaghans are the perfect “branch off” of the With Me in Seattle tree. These Irish siblings are all such quirky and interesting characters. I’ve looked forward to each book in this series, but dare I say Keegan O’Callaghan may have just put himself in the lead as my favorite hero so far in the series! I can’t believe I’m saying that but it’s true.

Izzy literally barges through the door at Keegan’s pub

Oh my, I am swooning so hard right now over Keegan and Izzy!! I absolutely 100% am in love with their story.

I've been so curious about Keegan since we first met him and what kind of woman it would take to knock him on his ass, apparently a runaway bride. Keegan's world revolves around his bar and his family until the most unexpected person steps foot in his bar. Izzy's world was turned upside down after fleeing her own wedding but she was determined to do things her way and man, did she ever wh

It’s funny this newer branch to the With Me In Seattle doesn’t seem to be getting much fanfare - from what I’ve seen at least -, but I’m just gonna say it, the O’Callaghans are my new favorite KP family. It’s pretty simple, KP is a seasoned writer now vs the original, so the characters & the storytelling have both improved — I still have affection for parts of the original with the Montgomerys, of course

What happens when you're walking down the aisle to get married to the person you know is all wrong for you? Do you go through with it or do you run? Well that is the dilemma that Izzy is faced with. So she did what was best for her and ran, hopped into her car and drove for hours before she stopped in front of a Pub on a tiny island outside of Seattle.

Keegan has been married for his bar! His family feared that he would never settle down because he didn't put anything before his Pub,

I am loving this spin off series so much. Not only do we get our favorite characters from the original series but we get new character’s to fall in love with.

Keegan is the brother I wanted to get his HEA the most when I learned about him. He was so content to be running the pub but I knew there had to be a girl that would love him and he love her outside the pub.

Isabella is that woman. She comes into his life when she needed someone to be strong for her.

Kristen Proby has had me as a fan since I discovered the very first book in this series many years ago and since then, I've been a loyal reader and devoted fan to this series. And y'all honestly, the books continue to get better and better. Well she's back with the newest standalone in the With Me In Seattle series and y'all what a book this was. All the feels and all the swoon packed into this beauty right here and I'm telling you there is something about these men.

So lovely.

I love family series and this author can write one heck of a family for us to love. Keegan's family is simply amazing and we even got to see some of the old faces we've come to cherish.

Keegan and Isabella/Izzy just clicked and worked so well together. It was adorable to see them getting closer and closer, even if some scenes seemed a little too fastpaced or disconnected.

I've said it before, but I feel it's appropriate to say it again: Kristen Proby is always a safe read. A way to relax

Escape With Me is a fantastic addition to the With Me In Seattle & O’Callaghan Series’. Escape With Me follows the story of Keegan and Izzy. When we first meet up with Izzy, she’s run out on her wedding. She finds herself on a tiny island in Washington. Little did she know, her world was about to be turned upside down once again….

Escape With Me was the absolute perfect book to spend my day getting lost in. There’s just something about this series that feels like com

Oh my I think I may have fallen head over heels in love with Keegan. I have been curious as to the what type of woman would throw this Irishman for a loop and obliviously it is a runaway bride.
Isabella is literally standing in the back of the church and realizes she is not able to commit to this man and take those vows or continue to work in the family business. She feels that all her choices have been made for her. Feeling as though she has no say in her future she runs. A few hours later she

“Game changer, 5 stars”

If you love Proby’s stories you will love Escaped With Me. Keagan has all the Irish charm and Isabella is just perfect for him. Plus, you get to see some of the original Proby couples, and let’s be honest, no one would turn that down.
Keagan is married to his bar. Yes, he may enjoy the company of a woman once in a while, but no one has ever made him look twice. Not until Isabella stumbles into his bar, looking like a mess and a little lost. Li

I love each and every addition to the With Me in Seattle series, but Escape With Me is something extra special...I mean, who doesn't love a runaway bride story?! From the moment I read Izzy's prologue, I knew I was in for a treat.

Having met Keegan O'Callaghan earlier in the series, I knew it would take a very special lady to capture his heart. And Izzy is exactly that -- it takes a strong woman to leave her groom-to-be at the alter, despite the consequences. It takes a humbled woman to accept t

I wondered who would be the woman that would steal Keegan heart. Izzy was like a breath of fresh air. She was funny and thoughtful. And let's not forget strong. Life has thrown her a curve ball but she took charge and made it work. Per usual the O'Callaghan clan was there to help out and I loved seeing "old" faces appearing and getting to see what are they up to nowadays.

To sum this up; this is one of those "open up a bottle of wine and read it one sitting" kinda book. I promise you that you'll

I enjoyed Escape With Me quite a bit. I was a bit hesitant about starting this one after giving book 1 in the series one star last week. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I flew through this one. All of the characters were pretty great and I loved our main characters Keenan and Izzy together. They had chemistry and fit so well into each other's lives. The whole O’Callaghan family was a hoot and I need to go back and read their books as well.

I was so excited for Keegan's book! And Kristen certainly did not disappoint.
We meet Izzy while she is standing at the alter deciding she cannot say "I do" and she flees the church. With nothing but the wedding dress she is wearing and her cell phone and purse, she jumps in her car and drives for hours until she decides to stop at none other than the O'Callaghan's Pub and walks right into Keegan's life.

Of course, I started this series ... not from the beginning. But after finishing Escape with Me, I'm rather eager to meet more of the O'Callaghans.

Kristen definitely writes great go-to reads and it was just what I needed to break things up in my reading. From the sizzling chemistry between Izzy and Keegan, they just have a smooth and easy-going friendship that turns into something so much more.

Kristen Proby has been one of my favourite romance authors for years. I stumbled across Wait For You and fell in love. I immediately read the rest of the series and have been reading her books ever since.

Escape with me was released on Tuesday and I didn’t it wait, I read it in a day. This book was sexy, heartwarming and funny. A story of a runaway bride running into a bar owned by a hot Irish man was its intriguing. You could feel the sexual chemistry on the page with the characters but also fe

I’ve been waiting for Keegan’s story since we first met him. Who wouldn’t like a hot, sexy, Irish bar owner! I love the way the O’Callahan’s are with each other and the way they are when the find their one.

Izzy finally gets a backbone. Too bad it’s at her wedding. A wedding that, thankfully, never happens. She ends up at Keegan’s bar and that is that.

Maybe it’s me but the storyline was just a little too sweet. Everything seemed so easy that a part of me found it hard to believe that this could happen in real life.

A princess has just walked into Keegan's pub looking a tad soaked. She's not a princess really, but she's a vision and Keegan's entranced. Entranced enough to offer her a job waitressing (and a place to stay) when it becomes obvious she has nowhere else to go, nowhere else to stay. He's not looking for love, but Izzy just may be the woman to make him fall.

Although I'm not surrounded by an Irish family in my real life, I felt like I was when I was reading Escap

This was an okay one. The story had a lot if potential but the author gave most of it away. You can settle in for some mild drama that could have been well more explored and described .
The story has its weaknesses and doesn't really deserve being called a story because nothing really happens. It would have been boring at times if the charcters wouldn't be so funny.
If you wish to read about round charcters, don't try this one out because none of the charcters are well done. Not even the protagoni

She flees her wedding , drives for hours, finds herself in Seattle , drenched in the rain , in Keegan O’Callaghans pub.
