About the Author

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.
When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

I'll Be There is a story about love that simmers below the surface between to co-workers. Samantha Chase has mixed life changing events for main characters Hugh and Gabriella to bring them both to realize how important they were to each other on a personal level not just as co-workers. After a climbing accident injures Hugh, his assistant starts to work with him from home. His anger over his injuries as well as his trying to hide his felling for Gabriella cause Hugh to strike out at her. Because of her feelings for him, she keeps trying even though he treats her badly. So we have trouble that finally finds the love that then hits the skids again before finally meeting romantic success. Lots of family interaction that many may not understand.  I have enjoyed all of Samantha Chase books. This one too I recommend for those who like easy romantic reads.

I received an ARC of I’ll be There for an honest review. I was excited to read I’ll be There after I read Meant for You a while ago. Zach Montgomery was in a terrible accident that almost killed him. Now he’s been homebound trying to recover and being a total jerk about it. Gabriella has worked for Zach for a long time. The two of them used to be really close until one day Zach came to work and began treating her and everyone else coldly. Now either Zach takes Gabriella’s help or he has to hand over his company to his best friend. Zach has been struggling with feeling like less than a man since he fell and doesn’t want anyone, especially Gabriella to see him weak. Zach for most of this story was a total jerk to everyone, especially Gabriella. He really struggles with something not being easy for him and for him not recovering right away. He takes everything to the extreme and is just a total butt head. Honestly Gabriella is the nicest person every to put up with that abuse. I think it’s good Samantha Chase gives us a look at what’s going on inside his head otherwise I swear no one would be rooting for him in the end. Especially after you see the reason why he’s so rude to Gabriella, which is for a big nothing. Ugh. He makes A LOT of mistakes along his journey throughout this book and I think he comes out all, the better for it. Gabriella has had a hard life. She’s never been good enough for her family and after a bad experience at her last job she enjoys working for Zach and his family. She finally has the stability and friendship she’s always craved. When Zach is injured she takes over working for him and helping his best friend take care of the company. Gabriella is super smart and super sweet. I’m glad she found her own path and put her foot down a bunch of times with Zach, she’s exactly who he needs. I really enjoyed I’ll be There. I’ve only read this book and Meant for You but I enjoyed I’ll be There so much more than Meant for You. I think because for a lot of it I wasn’t rooting for the two of them to be together and a lot of the time it seemed like they wouldn’t which was definitely a twist I enjoyed. Really good book hope to one day read the rest of the series.

Maybe it wasn't the smartest choice for me to start the series with the 6th book, but it is whatit is. Despite the fact that this is a 6th book, it is easely readable as standalone. But, there is one fact you should be warned about if you decide to read just this book: you won't get attached to characters and, because of that, you won't be so pleased with the story. At least, that is what happened in my case. The story follows Zach who is a complete control freak that had a terrible accident while mountain climbing and now he is a mess. He has to use crutches to support himself and, like a little kid in a fifth grade, he is afraid other people will making fun of him because of that (actually, he is afraid other will see him as weak but I liked my perspective better). As a control freak who loses control, he starts to behave as a grumpy spoiled brat who drawns in self-pity. It was so hard to like him. As someone who knows how does it feel to have a terrible accident that leaves you unable to move for two whole months, make you learn how to walk again and go to phisical therapy every single day for months, I just couldn't feel sorry for Zach. In my opinion, he didn't make any affort to became stronger and walk again, he was just angry at the whole world. Gabriella took female book characters on a whole new level. She purrs and smells like Heaven (and no, this isn't a fantasy. It's a contemporary romance). She is also oh so hot and an ideal girl for Zach since she doesn't mind being treated horrible. She loves her family who is making fun of her all the time and looking at her like she is some kind of marriage wracker. And she loves Zach who is being rude to her constantly. The writing style is simple and is easy to read. The novel is written in third pespective and although it does have some cute scenes, it has more boring ones. Reading this book felt like watching a movie, falling asleep and then waking up after hearing main charaters screaming at each other, wondering what actually happened. It had a slow pace and then, all of the sudden, characters were just screaming at each other. It felt like drama came out of nowhere and I knew I must have lost my concentration while reading, but I just wasn't motivated enough to go back and reread what led to that. Even though my review may sound harsh, I don't think this is a bad book. I know some people that would love it and I would recommend it to romance lovers that do not overly analize what they read.

Really good read! Gabriella Martine is being played. The patriarch's of the Montgomery Empire are scheming to get her to help Zach get well after his horrible accident while mountain climbing. Zach Montgomery is mad at the world, cursing his body for failing him, and scared that he will never be any semblance of the man he was before his accident. He has no interest in working, or being among the living and he's seriously pissed off when his Assistant, Gabriella, shows up at the door to goad him into getting off his duff and actually doing the work to get well again. Throughout the process of getting serious about his physical therapy and getting caught up on work issues, Zach and Gabriella spent hours a day with each other and find they can no longer fight their attraction for each other. Will Zach be able to allow himself the luxury of having a future again or will he continue to second guess himself? ** Received free in exchange for an honest review **

Zach has been hurt and refuses all help to get better. Until his father, Robert, goes to his assistant Gabriella for help. This was a great story. All that Zach went through to re-find himself to lose and regain the person he loved was awesome. Gabriella worked so hard until everything blew up in her face but she eventually faced her demons and had the love of her life. I loved this story and plot and especially the characters. I highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

3 1/2 Stars I'll Be There is the sixth installment of Samantha Chase's Montgomery Brothers series. This book really can't be read as a standalone, it has characters from previous books and it makes it a little difficult in my opinion to follow everything if you don't know their backgrounds. This is the story of Gabriella and Zach. Gabrielle and Zach had been friends for a long time but once Gabrielle started working as Zach's assistant good friends turned to them being hardly civil. After some hurtful words by Zach, the two part ways. But when Zach is injured during a mountain climbing accident and needs help (even though he won't admit it), his family sends Gabrielle to help Zach. I will have to say Zach is pretty much a jerk 80% of the book and Gabrielle easily accepts his attitude and apologies. I would like to have seen her develop a backbone a little sooner towards Zach. It was a good story, I just wish Zach could have had a little better attitude. I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.

I have been waiting for this Montgomery brother to fall in love for quite some time and while I'm glad to finally get his story, I'm sad to see this series coming to an end. A powerful and successful businessman, Zach Montgomery has always prided himself in being the best, being in control of his life and making his own rules. Zach is a go-getter and an overachiever, so his inability to rally quickly from his climbing accident and having to depend on others for help is a big blow to him and he's pretty much given up on himself. His family has just about had enough of his bad moods and general surliness and in a two-for-one deal conspires to manipulate him into fighting to get better and get him together with the woman he's been interested in for the last five years. Gabriella Martine has been attracted to her boss for as long as she's worked for him but knows to keep things between them professional. Her resolve is about to be tested as she works closely with him while he recovers from his accident, but she'll do anything to keep him from losing his position as president of the company. Zach was such a meanie (I know, grade school word, but that's the only one that kept flying through my mind) and I can understand how for such a confident person, having his body fail him could be the worst thing ever but he was just terrible. Gabrielle on the other hand, was a saint in my opinion, for taking the constant lashing out and coming back for more, but as their story unfolds it's clear that there is a lot more going on. Zach hates to be vulnerable at all but that Gabrielle has a front row seat makes it even worse and their unresolved personal issues are like an eight-hundred pound elephant in the middle of the room. The time alone was just what they needed for their relationship to flourish and I like that Zach was all in once he realized how he felt about Gabrielle, even though he was quick to bail when she needed him the most. I know I wouldn't have stuck around for so long if I were in Gabrielle's shoes and that was my only gripe about this book. That and the fact that she forgave him so easily. I would have milked it for what it was worth and made him grovel really hard (yeah, I'm mean like that!). However, I loved this story and I think that it's fitting that Zach's road to happiness would be such a tumultuous one because of his personality. He had to hit rock bottom to get an appreciation for the prize he had in Gabrielle and his wonderful family. I'LL BE THERE is all about resilience, healing, family and love and is guaranteed to elicit a lot of emotions from readers, from the feel-good pleasure and happiness to the less than pleasant unease and anger, as Zach and Gabrielle fight for their happy ending.

Great family series
Sailon More than 1 year ago
I’ll Be There is a story about triumphing over life’s obstacles. Zach is a successful business man who finds himself is severely injured during a mountain climbing excursion. He is not handling his new life circumstances well, so his family and business partners conspire to get him back on his feet. Gabriella is Zach’s administrator assistant. She has had a crush on Zach forever but never acted on it. Gabriella has been seriously burned by an alleged past relationship at work and has kept their relationship extremely professional. Zach has heard the rumors and judged Gabriella. What was once a cordial relationship has turned sour. But that is about to change because Zach’s meddling family thrusts Gabriella into Zach’s post injury self-isolation. Zach is going through the gambit of emotions that follow loss, while Gabriella continues to accepts emotional and verbal abuse from those she holds dear. This is a heartwarming story of healing. Chase masterfully tackles difficult life circumstances while still managing to bring you through the range of emotions one must achieve to truly heal.

3.5 stars--I’LL BE THERE is the sixth installment in Samantha Chase’s contemporary, adult THE MONTGOMERY BROTHERS romance series focusing on the Montgomery family. This is CEO Zach Montgomery, and personal assistant Gabriella Martine’s storyline. I’LL BE THERE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty, although I would recommend reading the series in order for backstory and cohesion. SOME BACKGROUND: Uncle William Montgomery considers himself a matchmaker and his focus now centers on his brother, Robert Montgomery’s family. Zach Montgomery is William’s nephew and latest target-a man whose personal and physical recovery from a fall will depend upon his battered relationship with the woman who calls to his heart. Uncle William and Zach’s father Robert have devised a plan to push Zach and Gabrielle together-even if it means destroying Gabrielle’s heart and soul, in the process. Told from dual third person perspectives (Zach and Gabriella) I’LL BE THERE focuses on a second chance-of sorts-for Zach and his assistant Gabriella. Zach is in recovery and rehab following a mountain-climbing expedition that went horribly wrong leaving Zach a virtual shell of his former self-in pain, slow to heal, and having a difficult time with his mobility, Zach has become an angry, self-absorbed, broken man, and with it comes threats against family, friends and the people who love him the most. Enter Gabriella Martine-Zach’s long suffering personal assistant, and the woman who bears the brunt of Zach’s fiery temper and caustic personality. For five years, Gabriella has been all but ignored by the man with whom she has fallen in love, and Zach is none the wiser or aware of how much his attitude and personal attacks against Gabrielle have broken her heart. The relationship between Zach and Gabriella is one that began as employer to employee where the forbidden attraction between two people was hindered by a mistaken perception and hurtful words. Gabriella has become a virtual punching bag for her family’s attacks, and Zach’s abrasive attitude, acerbic rants and bully behavior that have left our heroine a victim of circumstance and office gossip, and the recipient of venomous anger. Gabriella is a smart, competent woman who can’t seem to say no to the man that she loves. Zach’s five year ‘temper tantrum’ and his treatment of Gabriella is nothing short of cruel, yet our heroine endured until the bitter end, when Zach, once again, took everything out of context and allowed jealousy and hate to rule his mouth and his mind. Their attraction to one another has not gone unnoticed by family and friends, but Zach is unwilling to acknowledge the truth about the woman who calls to his heart and his issues with his lack of independence and need for help. Just as their relationship becomes loving and romantic, Zach comes face to face with Gabriella’s past, and pushes Gabriella out of his life – one final time. The $ex scenes are seductive but mostly implied. I’LL BE THERE is an emotional storyline; a heartbreaking romance about healing and recovery; acceptance and denial; moving forward and letting go. The premise is a story of second chances and making amends; the characters are passionate and intense; the romance is full of anguish, anxiety, and slow to build. My anxiety level over Zach’s attitude and treatment of Gabriella and his family, as well as Gabriella’s willingness to accept Zach’s verbal and emotional attacks left me feeling uneasy and dis

I'll Be There by Samantha Chase, is my favorite Montgomery Brother book so far. As I read this book I had tears in my eye one moment and smiling right after. You will find romance, love, family drama, wealth and overcoming a bad fall with injury. The characters Zach and Gabriella are perfect for each, but will they make it through all the obstacles. I highly recommend this book or any book written by Samantha Chase. I was given an ARC of this book by publisher via NetGalley, for my honest review.

I have been waiting for this book ever since the last Montgomery book came out in April. Zach Montgomery is an angry hero and yet you don't hate him. You want to, but you can't. He has good reason to be that way. This was a complex story which I loved - no sunshine and unicorns here. You're dealing with two people with a lot of issues who ultimately find a way to heal each other. A very satisfying read. We need more Montgomerys!!

Personally, I love a story where a couple has to overcome hurdles to see that instead of flinging frustration and angst at each other, they should come together for a common goal. Such is the story of Zach and Gabriella. Zach, one of the brothers from Samantha Chase's incredible Montgomery family, becomes hurt physically and needs help, but his pride is in the way. Gabriella, a pro, is the perfect woman to set him on the right path, but refuses to put up with his moodiness, but supporting him at the same time. The spark ignites, and the story is fantastic! Make sure you live this incredible journey with Zach and Gabriella!!

I was ecstatic when I found out that Samantha Chase was releasing a new Montgomery Brothers novel. This family is such a joy that it is no hardship to visit time and again. I'll Be There is Zach's story. Zach has been successful at whatever he touches. His personality, focus, looks and even his family name has opened doors but his ambition is the key to all of his triumphs. When larger than life Zach is forced down to earth after an accident he is anything but happy. Gabriella is a formidable match for Zach. She has worked hard to accomplish her achievements and has managed to do so despite the odds. Gabriella is no pushover. She speaks her mind. With I'll be there Samantha Chase wrote a story full of triumph but she also introduced two characters afraid of letting anyone too close for fear of appearing weak. The lesson I took away from I'll Be There is that showing emotion is not weak. Emotions are a part of the maturity process that leads to a well rounded happy life. I received an ARC of I'll be There in exchange for an honest review. 10+ Stars.

I think the Montgomery series books Just keep getting better and better. I had to make myself out it down to get some sleep. Zach is dealing with real life issues like physical therapy recovering from his accident and anxiety. It nice to have the characters deal with some of the same stuff you and I could. Gabriella is an amazing assistant who tries to help Zach recover, and is very determined, which helps her while trying to deal with Zach and his moodiness. I found myself having to message the author because I was feeling so many emotion towards the Zach and Gabriella, and needed to talk about them. I loved this book and would highly recommend it!!
