Blog Tour with Review: Imagine With Me (With Me in Seattle #15) by Kristen Proby

Posted on

Imagine With Me by Kristen Proby is now live! 

From New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes an all new novel in her beloved With Me In Seattle series! Shawn O’Callaghan loves his job as a screenwriter almost as much as he loves his family. But this latest project could quite possibly test his patience beyond anything he’s ever had to endure. Generally unflappable, the author he’s thrown into the trenches with pushes every button he has. Sometimes twice. And it doesn’t help that he can’t stop thinking about her in ways that are anything but professional. But how can he help it? The brunette is gorgeous beyond reason–and utterly infuriating. Bestselling author Lexi Perry is finally about to leave her mark on the world; after all, seeing her dark and dangerous words brought to life is a dream come true. Until she meets the man who is supposed to make that happen. From the minute they laid eyes on each other, it was clear there would be tension, but she had no idea how much until they got down to business. He obviously doesn’t understand her vision. Though she’s having trouble lately too, given all she can picture is what he looks like under his clothes and imagining what it would sound like if he talked dirty to her in that sexy Irish lilt of his. If they can find a way to meet in the middle, this movie could be one for the ages. As could their love.

MY REVIEW

Imagine With Me is the 15th book in the beloved With Me In Seattle Series and it follows the story of Lexi and Shawn. Bestselling author Lexi Perry’s dreams are about to come true. One of her beloved books is being made into a film. With her head in the clouds, anything is possible….that is until she meets Shawn. Shawn rubbed Lexi the wrong way after their first encounter, leaving her dreading having to work with him. They butt heads at every turn and the idea of them coming to a compromise seems nearly impossible. And it doesn’t help that these two are undeniably attracted to one another. Will Lexi and Shawn find a way to get along? Will all the delicious tension between them lead to something more? There’s only one way to find out…. Every time I dive back into the world that author Kristen Proby has created with the With Me In Seattle Series, it feels like I’ve come home. I’m immediately sucked into the world that she has created and feel this undeniable pull to the characters. And let me tell you, Imagine With Me does not disappoint. From the moment I met Lexi and Shawn, I had to know more. These two had so much chemistry, I’m surprised my kindle didn’t burst into flames. Sure, they butted heads and were stubborn as ever. But all that complication led to some serious tension. And I for one, couldn’t wait to see how it all played out. Lexi was a fabulous character. As someone who is a total introvert, I found Lexi easy to relate to. Trust me, given the choice, I’d rather be hanging out at home, instead of being surrounded by a bunch of strangers. Lexi is extremely passionate about the stories she writes and has a clear vision in her head. It isn’t easy for her to give up control and to just relax, but if anyone can pull her out of her shell, it’s Shawn. Speaking of Shawn, I liked him right off the bat. He has a good heart and family means the world to him. He too is passionate about his craft and is used to getting his way. Lexi was the perfect match for him. She wasn’t afraid to tell him no and wasn’t afraid to stick to her guns about the things that truly mattered. I loved watching these two try to navigate their way to a happily ever after. Neither one of them was perfect, but that just made me love them more. Imagine With Me is absolutely everything that I was hoping for and then some. I fell in love with the characters and their story instantly. I love, love, loved all of the secondary characters and am hoping that we will see more of Shawn’s siblings in the future because there is just one story I am DYING for! Imagine With Me is well-paced and entertaining. This story is filled with lots of passion and tension. There’s drama, but nothing over the top. There’s romance and just the right amount of angst and steam. All in all, a perfect read to spend your day getting lost in. I look forward to seeing what this author has in store for us readers next!

Excerpt

“What do you do, Lexi?”

“I’m a writer.”

Archer lifts a brow and turns to the man next to him. “Oh? Shawn’s also a writer. What do you write?”

“Novels,” I say and turn to the screenwriter, but he holds up a hand, stopping me.

“I’m not here to entertain any new projects tonight,” Shawn says, immediately cutting me off.

He thinks I’m trying to network with him? To get him to read something I’ve written and further my career?

Well, screw him.

My face goes from friendly to cold in a heartbeat. Luke sighs.

This is a fantastic way to start this working relationship.

“That’s convenient,” I say, ice dripping from every damn word. “I’m not here to pitch a project to you, Mr. O’Callaghan. I know who you are, but it’s not terribly important to me. I do fine all on my own. Have a good night, gentlemen.”

I give a curt nod and turn away, my heels clicking on the hardwood floor as I make a hasty retreat.

I want to get out of here.

The audacity! What a jerk. I was already nervous about being here. Now, I get the disappointment of knowing I have to work with a conceited ass who’s clearly completely full of himself.

“Lexi.”

I don’t turn around.

“Lexi.”

A hand lightly latches on to my elbow, and I turn to find Shawn staring down at me, his mouth set in a grim line.

“I owe you an apology. I didn’t know you were Nora, the author I’ll be working with over the next few weeks.”

“If you’d known, you would have been polite?”

He winces. “Again, I apologize. It’s been a shit day, and I was trying to avoid work talk. Not my finest moment.”

“No.” I glance down at the elbow he’s still holding hostage. He lets go. “It wasn’t. Have a good evening, Mr. O’Callaghan. I’ll see you on Monday.”

“Lexi—”

But I don’t turn back. I know I’ll have cooled down by the time I see Shawn again. I won’t be embarrassed. My feet won’t be killing me.

For now, I want to hide.

I’m so far out of my comfort zone, I couldn’t find it with a map.
