There are two things Maeve O'Callaghan values more than anything else: her family and her career. Being the eldest daughter in a large, close-knit and somewhat chaotic Irish family means spending most of her nights in the family-owned pub, serving drinks and food, always accompanied by a smile. During the day, she's a superstar real estate agent, selling homes on her beloved island just across Puget Sound from Seattle. She doesn't have time for much else, and she's perfectly okay with that.
Enter Hunter Meyers. He's looking for a new place to call home, somewhere out of the city, and believes life on the island could be just the thing for him and his troubled teenage daughter. While in search of finding the perfect house, his sexy realtor catches his eye, making him feel things he hasn't in years. But with the added baggage of a surly teen and a past that will never be forgotten, how can he make something permanent with the gorgeous Irishwoman who tempts him like no other?
Maeve isn't just attracted to Hunter with his killer grin and muscles for days. The teenager that tries so hard to push her away also pulls at her heartstrings. Maeve understands the importance of family, and can see herself making just that with Hunter and his daughter. But when his past comes back to haunt him, will their love be strong enough, or will they be ripped apart forever?
4 Heart Review by Ashley
I always look forward to how Kristen Proby is going to add to the With Me in Seattle series and keep it fresh. And this single-parent, quasi sports romance did not disappoint at all.
I adored Maeve. Strong, independent, brave and as fiery as her hair. And when Hunter strolls into her bar one night her flirt game comes on strong. Can't say I blame her because Hunter is what I like to call #hotbutteredyum. A true alpha with a tender spot for his daughter, who at 15, pushed him to his limit of patience and sanity.
I loved how Hunter went out of his way to spend time with Maeve. He put himself in her path to make sure she knew he was interested. And as they spent more time together, the chemistry only burned brighter. But more than the dynamic between Hunter, Maeve and Rachel was the way the entire O’Callaghan family embraced them and welcomed them into the huge fold that also included the Williams' and Montgomery's (yes they pop up a few times).
But when a blast from the past threatens all the good that has come out of Hunter's move to the island, his protective side came out in full force. It was one fight he would not and could not lose. Maeve and Hunter's romance was charming, full of steam, witty and left me wanting more.
