Settled in the tranquil remoteness of the Scottish Highlands, Ardnoch Estate caters to the rich and famous. It is as unattainable and as mysterious as its owner --ex-Hollywood leading man Lachlan Adair--and it's poised on the edge of a dark scandal.
After narrowly escaping death, police officer Robyn Penhaligon leaves behind her life in Boston in search of some answers. Starting with Mac Galbraith, the Scottish father who abandoned her to pursue his career in private security. To re-connect with Mac, Robyn will finally meet a man she's long resented. Lachlan Adair. Hostility instantly brews between Robyn and Lachlan. She thinks the head of the Adair family is high-handed and self-important. And finding closure with Mac is proving more difficult than she ever imagined. Robyn would sooner leave Ardnoch, but when she discovers Mac is embroiled in a threat against the Adairs and the exclusive members of the estate, she finds she's not yet ready to give up on her father.
Determined to ensure Mac's safety, Robyn investigates the disturbing crimes at Ardnoch, forcing her and Lachlan to spend time together. Soon it becomes clear a searing attraction exists beneath their animosity, and temptation leads them down a perilous path.
While they discover they are connected by something far more addictive than passion, Lachlan cannot let go of his grip on a painful past: a past that will destroy his future ... if the insidious presence of an enemy lurking in the shadows of Ardnoch doesn't do the job first.
4.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Confession time: I haven't read a book by Samantha Young in probably two years and I am kicking myself for it now because holy crap! The picture she painted of the landscapes made me want to get lost in the highlands. The opening alone had my eyes popping wide open and the hits kept coming.
I LOVED Robyn. She defines strong, bold female. She also had this touch of vulnerability that made her so relatable that I was rooting for her to get the answers she was seeking in Scotland. But from the moment she showed up at the estate, things got complicated, and not just with her dad. The broody, secretive owner of the castle, Lachlan, had walls higher than those erected to keep outsiders at bay.
To say tensions were high between them is an understatement. The animosity was almost as bad as the indifference at some points but there was no denying the chemistry. I kept waiting for the bubble to burst and when it did...hot hot hot!! It was in those stolen moments that both Lachlan and Robyn found something they didn't know they were missing, a safe place to lay their past.
But lurking the shadows was this threat that would keep throwing the security team for a loop. And when the threat turned deadly, it bought up all of Lachlan and Robyn's fears. He pushed and she pulled and it was all they could do to try and save their tender hearts.
Gah! I thought I had it figured out, knew who was pulling the strings, and I was partly right, but I did not see the other half of the puzzle. Talk about wild and thrilling. From start to finish, Here With Me was dramatic and mysterious, sexy and suspenseful. Full of family, forgiveness and friendship. Robyn and Lachlan's enemies-to-lovers romance was so completely addicting that I didn't want it to end.
