There is nothing happily ever after about my life. I work four jobs just to keep us going.

What I don't need to deal with?

Jamie McAlister.

Yeah. Him. Blond, tall, gorgeous. I had a crush on him throughout high school, but he never knew I existed. I don't even think he knows my name. I was too shy to say a word to him. It seems that everywhere I go, he's there. And now? He's kissed me--a lot. And those hot kisses have led to even hotter nights.

I'm falling for him, head over heels. But I don't know how to fit Jamie into my life. I only know I need him. Which means I have to try for something I never thought was possible. I have to fight for him and a forever kind of love.

## this was just plain depressing. Jeez, negative much? And why in God's name would you name a heroine Zelda. Ugh, bad!

Try With Me is the third book in the With Me series by Elyssa Patrick. I love this series, and this book was amazing. I love all the characters in this series. I love how each book focuses on a different person, but all the characters show up in all the books. The hero in this story is Jamie. He's the good looking, laid-back funny guy that has brought a lot of humor to this series. There's more to Jamie than what you see on the surface though. This book is told from the point of view of Zelda – a young woman who has had a crush on Jamie since high school. She was never part of the cool crowd though, like Jamie, and never thought that he even knew her name. She couldn't have been more wrong. First of all, I have to say that Zelda's name drove me nuts. Other than that, the book was awesome! I stayed up until 4:30 reading because I couldn't put the book down. Zelda reminded me so much of myself. No friends. No self-confidence. But she has such a horrible life. She has no family other than her mom, who is dying of cancer. Zelda is working 4 jobs and living in a run down apartment to take care of her mom. She finds out that her mom, the only person she has in life, only has 6 weeks left to live. And then Zelda's junker of a car dies, and she doesn't have the money to fix it. Everything that could go wrong does go wrong. Jamie comes into her life though, and reminds her that she doesn't have to carry this burden alone. Zelda is so inexperienced, so I was surprised that her and Jamie moved so quickly with their relationship. The love scenes were hot. But it wasn't all about sex. I don't like books where the characters have sex without caring about each other. And I normally like more time and sexual tension before the characters jump into bed together. This book worked though. This book also made me cry. That doesn't happen very often. Parts of this book were so very sad. And Zelda's character made me mad a time or two during her grieving process – the way she treated people... But I had to remind myself that I've never been in her shoes and everyone handles grief differently. I want to add though, that this book DOES have a happy ending. I don't read books without happy endings. Well, I try not to anyway. I hate it when books make me sad, but I knew a happy ending was coming so I was able to get though it. The author really made me feel the emotions in the book, and that is one of the reasons why Elyssa Patrick is one of my favorite authors. This book was amazing and definitely deserves 5 stars. I am so excited for Griff's book. And I really hope that Griff's brother Jack gets his own book. I loved how Jamie is just so sure that Jack is a secret agent, and Jack's quiet, brooding demeanor and irritation with Jamie was just hilarious.

4.5 - "You're one of us." Stars! Elyssa Patrick has built the With Me series from enjoyable, to unputdownable with the addition of Jamie and Zeldas book. I knew Try With Me was going to be a book that pulled on the heart-strings, with the inclusion of Breast-Cancer it hits particularly close to home for this reader (as it will for many, many others). I think it is important to say that Elyssa handles that part of the story with such feeling, emotion and respect that it makes the rest of the book even more outstanding because of it. Zelda is a young woman, an extremely strong and resilient young woman, she is approaching the end of a journey with her mother, the one person up to this point who has been the constant in her life. I am lucky, my one constant survived, and lived and is still fighting to this day. My only hope that if or when the time comes I can be half as strong and selfless as this fictional character.  Be happy. Be scared. Be brave.  On the flip side of the heart break, is the heart meltingly beautiful and sexy-hot story of re-connection, between two people who after a 4 year separation, realize that they both felt the same way back in school. Happy-go-lucky Jamie McAllister, it turns out has a hell of a lot more going on under that easy-going exterior that you are led to believe in the first two books in the With Me series, yes there were a few conversations to give the reader a hint that this is a guy who when he falls, falls hard and irrevocably, but you get too read it in this book. Elyssa did him justice, every dirty-talking, vulnerable looking, quick quipping part of him. Did. Not. Disappoint.  "I'm not the type of guy who walks away from a girl he likes-well not anymore anyway." I think it is safe to say that a lot of guys in a new relationship would turn tail and run like hell when faced with the full no-holds barred breakdown of Zeldas' life. Not Jamie, he rallies the troops and it was good too see Caleb & Hailey as well as Daphne & Nick, & the elusive Griff and his brother take prominent roles in the story as it progressed. "You're not alone, not ever. Believe in that. Trust in that." This book isn't one I will forget in a hurry, not for bad reasons, it made me thankful that for the now, happy for the then, and ever hopeful for the future. ARC generously provided by the author, it was as always my pleasure to provide the above honest review.

Wow. Breast cancer is really tough to deal with and a very emotional book. It’s hard to say who it is harder one, the one with cancer or the loved ones left behind. The pain and grief Zelda felt while making her mom’s last weeks comfortable was nothing compared to when she finally died. The guilt Zelda dealt with because she spent time with Jamie and happy and enjoying herself. Zelda was a complete wreck and was afraid to depend on Jamie once her mother died. In her experience, everyone who she ever cared about left so she pushed Jamie away before he could leave her too. Jamie is one of those characters that is so likable. Jamie’s friends don’t take him seriously because he always jokes around and wanted to project that type of an image to hide his insecurities. Zelda is the only person who really sees him. He opens himself up to her and gives her his heart. He does everything he can to help her with her mother and support her in her grief. It was good to see that she could drive him to the brink with his emotions. At times I had to wonder if he was just too understanding. So I was happy to see him get angry with her and call her out on her behavior that drove him away and face her feelings.
