All the Way by Kristen Proby ~ Review & Quote-tastic (@Handbagjunkie)

I've listened to one of Kristen Proby's reads before and had a lot of fun reading it, so I thought it was time to try something new of hers. I had a fabulous time reading All the Way and am so excited to return to this world again in the future!

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new Romancing Manhattan series, three brothers get more than they bargain for as they practice law, balance life, and navigate love in and around New York City.

Finn Cavanaugh is known for being a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. He owns a successful law firm with his brother and brother-in-law in Manhattan. On the rare occasion that he has down time, he spends it at his home in Martha’s Vineyard. But when Finn’s troubled niece goes to stay with him for the summer in Martha’s Vineyard, he’s reluctant to take time off from work. That is, until he meets his beautiful new neighbor, London.

London Watson is a Tony Award winning actress on Broadway. When tragedy strikes her family, leaving her alone and injured, she flees Manhattan for Martha’s Vineyard. Hoping she can figure out how to pick up the pieces of her life, London is convinced that she’ll never be able to return to the stage. But when she meets the charming young girl next door and her sexy uncle, they soon lure London out of her shell as she finally begins to heal from the wounds of her past.

But when London feels confident enough to return to the spotlight, she’s dealt another devastating blow. Will the newfound love between London and Finn be enough to conquer all? Or will it be over before it has a chance to grow…?

This first book, All the Way in Kristen Proby's new Romancing Manhattan series, was quite the delightful read. I met a cast of characters that I wanted to get to know, and enjoyed their journey to find happiness. Our main couple weren't looking for love, but had a sweet connection that blossomed throughout their journey.

London had been through such a tough time and had lost so much. She was healing slowly but she seemed to improve after meeting Finn and his niece, Gabby. I liked seeing her interact with Finn, doing sweet things together and finding their groove in a relationship.

Finn actually made my heart melt a little... He was kind and patient, and treated London well. He didn't try to push London too far, and wanted to do nice things for her, even when she didn't need it. Finn and London had a few ups and downs, but it wasn't overly dramatic. Their communication needed work and a happy medium needed to be found.

There was a touch of suspense woven through the story, which I could see brewing. It wrapped up some questions I had, and tied the story up nicely. For my second Kristen Proby read, I was excited with how it all came together and how much fun I had reading it. The characters were great and I loved meeting Finn's family. I'm really looking forward to coming back to this world again.

This moment made me swoon and smile! It was a sweet kiss between Finn and London.

“You’re sexy.” My voice is breathy. I’m gripping on to his shoulders, my nails barely digging in.
He kisses me now. Really kisses me, one hand cupping my jaw and neck as his tongue glides over mine. He nibbles the side of my lips, giving me goose bumps, and then takes my mouth again, as if he’s memorizing me.
It’s the sexiest kiss I’ve ever experienced.
When he pulls away, he cups my ass in his hands and smiles down at me. “You have a great ass.”
“So do you.”
“You noticed?”
“Of course I noticed.”

Kristen ProbyKristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
