REVIEW: Here With Me by Samantha Young



I've always enjoyed Samantha Young's novels, especially the ones that she sets overseas--they feel like love notes to the area that she's writing about. In the case of Here With Me, I want to see the Scotland that she weaves into the background and fall in love with as much as her characters do. 

In this novel, which after THAT ENDING!!! appears to be the first in a series of standalones, we follow the story of Robyn and Lachlan. She's in Scotland to try to figure out if there's any chance to have a relationship with her dad. She's had a near death experience that pushes her to live the life she wants, rather than one she'd created because of or in spite of her life leading up to it. She's a strong character, who slowly learns how to make peace with her vulnerabilities too. She's spunky and kind and a great match to the broody Scot, Lachlan. Like Robyn, he's also a strong character whose past life plays a huge part in the decisions he makes about his career and his relationships. He's protective of the people he cares about and exudes a confident arrogance that antagonizes Robyn like nothing else. Both he and Robyn are a perfect match in that neither of them back down, they're quick to make snide remarks, and are stubborn--all things that make their inevitable fall for each other that much more fun. 

All of this plays out against a background of family issues with Robyn, and to some extent, Lachlan, and an escalating stalker situation that drags all of the major and minor characters into it. Between the push and pull of attraction between Robyn and Lachlan and the stalker, the pages of this 500 + page novel go quickly. And have I mentioned that ending?! That ending just guarantees that I'll be back for what comes next with all of these characters; I'm definitely intrigued.

Here With Me by Samantha Young is now live!


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.
