Review: Only With Me by Kelly Elliott

Posted on

Life was great.

I loved my bachelor life and working my dream job with the Colorado Springs SWAT team.

That all changed the day I stepped into her bakery. Her smile swept me off my feet, and her panna cotta was heaven.

Cue my very traditional Greek family.

Then all hell broke loose.

The woman I was falling in love with was Italian, and my mother was hell-bent on proving to the world she was the better cook.

If my meddling family wasn’t bad enough, for the last six years Gabi had been on the run from a past she tried desperately to escape from.

Between a beautiful woman on the run, and a crazy family constantly in my business, would I be able to show her I’m the only one who can keep her safe … or will her past steal her away from me?


My Review

“Nothing made sense anymore. The only thing I cared about was her, in this moment. Feeling her body fall apart with me inside her, completely inside her with nothing in between.”

“I needed her. Desired her. Craved her. She was mine and I needed her to know.”

What a fun, fun book! Only With Me gave me all the feels and left me with the biggest smile on my face! This is the type of story that once you start reading, you can’t stop and you just wish you could live in it.

Told from dual points of view, Only With Me follows the story of Nic and Gabbi. From the moment you meet these two, you will captivated by the intense and instant chemistry. The sparks between these two are off the charts. Nic loved his life and didn’t want to change a single thing…that is until he walked into Gabbi’s bakery. The moment the of them met, Nic’s life was totally turned upside down…..Gabbi has spent the last 6 years on the run. Her only indulgent was starting the bakery she always dreamed up. On the surface she’s living the dream, but on the inside, she’s always looking over her shoulder and is always wishing for love. Meeting Nic not only turned her world upside down, but also gave her hope for the future she always wanted. The road to HEA for these two won’t be an easy one. From meddling families and an inescapable past, there certainly is never a dull moment…..

Boy, oh boy! What can I say about this book?! I just loved it. It was so much fun and so entertaining. The story-line sucked me in from page one. I adored Nic and his crazy Greek family. For secondary characters, they were just amazing. They were funny as hell, meddling and completely overbearing with a likeness to the family from My Big Fat Greek Wedding. You could tell their hearts were in the right place and that with a family like his, there would never be a dull moment.

Nic…..He was just perfection. He never thought he’d be the guy who would fall in love and want it all, but meeting Gabbi quickly put things in perspective for him. Suddenly, Nic was all hot, sexy, alpha and 100% protective of the woman that he wanted. And Gabbi….She had her reasons for her secrets, but man was it fun watching her learn to love and open up. To take a chance and embrace Nic and his wild Greek Family.

I absolutely loved the mix of Greek and Italian cultures. I loved seeing the differences and opinions. I loved the family dynamic and how important it was despite all the craziness.

My only issue with this story and it’s a small one, is that there is one scene that I felt was a bit rushed and it left me wanting a little more. It was definitely not a deal breaker, but important to note. That being said, the story is so incredibly well written and is honestly impossible to not fall in love with.

Overall, I found Only With Me to be a truly enjoyable read. I loved everything about it from beginning to end. The character and the story-line were just so much fun and so entertaining. I didn’t want to put this book down. I just wanted to live in this book and hang out with these characters. An absolute wonderful book to spend the day getting swept up in.
