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 have read both books on their own, but received an ARC copy for an honest review.  In the first book, Wait for Me, we meet William Montgomery, a successful CEO of a company and he has decided dabble in his families lives. His first attempt is to match his son Lucas, a former NFL star, with Emma, his personal assistant.  Lucas was injured by playing the game, and has chosen to live his life in almost seclusion, every once in a while he travels to his families business and sees Emma. William decides that Emma, might be a perfect match for his son, and sends her on a errand right before a blizzard. They are trapped together and start to give into their attraction to each other, blissfully unaware of William's meddling. They return to civilization and eventually find their way to a happily ever after.  In book two, Trust in Me, William tries his hand with another Jason, a busy executive and Maggie, a customer service employee. Jason has had bad luck trying to find an assistant that isn't trying to install herself as the next Mrs. Montgomery. He approaches his father and demands that his next assistant be married, so that he will be able to focus on his big business trip. William approaches Maggie, who was a personal assistant at her last job and is a single woman, but who now is anonymous in the corporate world.  They travel together and become friends. They begin to develop feeling for each other, and this leads to a lot of tension because Jason believes she is married. The truth leaks out and they begin a relationship. Jason struggles to balance work and personal life, but they too eventually earn a happy ending.  Enjoyed these two novels, they were fun and quick reads. I would recommend them to fans of business romance and meddling families.

This book includes the first two stories in the Montgomery Brothers series. I really enjoyed both of them. The first book, Wait for Me the Montgomery son was the person who needed healing. In the second story, Trust in me, our heroine needed healing. Loved them both. This series reminds me very much of MacGregor's by Nora Roberts.

I love Samantha Chase's writing. In Wait for Me, I enjoyed the plotting and scheming of William Montgomery right from the beginning. His plan to push spunky Emma into the arms of his recluse son Lucas was quite brilliant and made for very entertaining reading. I enjoyed the way Emma called him out on his cowardly behavior. William Montgomery's machinations to push them together continued and I was so eager to see how everything would play-out. The second story in the book, Trust in Me, was quite lovely as well. I was so interested in what would happen between Maggie and Jason. Her past experiences have made her very wary and I enjoyed watching her tread carefully through their interactions. Both romances within this book are brilliantly written with rich and engaging characters. I can't wait to get my hands on more of her books.

~WAIT FOR ME~ My Thoughts: A snowed in love story? Gimme gimme gimme! I started reading this one and fell for the premise instantly, then fell for Emma and Lucas. The two of them have an attraction that has been there for awhile. Since Lucas has been hiding himself away from the world, his father decides to send Emma his way in an attempt to bring him back to normal civilization. His plan gets them together during a blizzard that ends up being much worse than originally anticipated. Emma and Lucas are stuck together for a long time, and their desires begin to take over. Once things are back to normal post-snowstorm, someone is going to have to speak up before they lose each other forever. Wait for Me is one of the sweetest little love stories. Two people being snowed in together while fighting their feelings makes for one of my absolute favorite cozy reads. Emma and Lucas are both stubborn, but they care. It takes some time for them to learn how to meet halfway, to really get to know each other and understand, but they're willing to try. Definitely a great book to start The Montgomery Brothers series by Samantha Chase! My Rating: Very Good ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~TRUST IN ME~ My Thoughts: When I discovered the premise behind this one, I was already sitting at the edge of my seat. It's one of those stories where in your head you're just fighting the urge to freak out over the chemistry between the two main characters because of the whole "pretending to be married" thing. Maggie's background as to why she chose to fake being married makes you empathize majorly. Jason is glad to have Maggie as an assistant since she's already married. That way they can both focus on the job. Unfortunately for them, the attraction is too strong and Jason is fighting an epic battle to be the good guy while Maggie is trying to keep up appearances. When the truth comes out, all bets are off. Trust in Me was so cute and engaging. It tore me up watching the two of them struggle with their feelings for weeks. Lucas and Maggie's chemistry pulls you in and you never want to let go of the idea of them together. You can feel the pain they're both facing, and your heart goes out to them. I thought it was an amazing and realistic portrayal of such a tough dilemma. This is the second book in The Montgomery Brothers series I've read, and it most certainly won't be the last by Samantha Chase! My Rating: Very Good

I loved the book...starting the second one yay

I found this book to be okay. Not fantastic, not bad, just...meh. My biggest problem was the feeling of head-hopping. At one point I think we were in three different POVs in the space of a page. Lucas in particular seemed a bit immature, though I do get his problem and wanting to retreat from the world. Wait For Me - Lucas's injury would be devastating for a pro athlete, but his total retreat from the world seemed a bit ridiculous. Emma - I really liked her for the most part, though during the blackest moment of the book, I thought she was a bit ridiculous as well at the lengths she went to. I enjoyed seeing her make a career shift, but felt it came too quickly and easily when there had been relatively little hint she wanted to shift jobs, and then when she did it came so effortlessly/convenient (deus ex machine perhaps). The final "I love yous" were sweet, but again the thing that drove them apart just seemed over the top to me. Trust in Me - I enjoyed Trust more than I did Wait, and I think in part because both of the characters felt more realistic and grounded than those in Wait. Jason was a good man (a bit egotistical perhaps, but given apparently every woman wants to marry him maybe he has room for ego), and genuinely comes to appreciate and admire Maggie. I felt the genuine growth in both characters and believed in their path toward romance. The one stumbling block for me to bar it from liking it more than I did was toward the end when Jason has his showdown with the jerk from Maggie's past. I felt, again, that the whole thing seemed a bit unrealistic and, surprisingly given it's a Sourcebooks book, badly edited. I felt like something, maybe a page or two, went missing somehow because there was no hint of what was about to happen, just POOF, Maggie walks in and (of course) leaps to the wrong conclusion. Still, the make-up was lovely. What for me saved both books was I loved William (the meddling dad). I really enjoyed watching him try to maneuver his kids into finding what he clearly has with his wonderful wife. So - this is a hit AND miss for me. Still, I'll continue reading Ms. Chase's work in the future. Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Great book. These two stories definitely left me wanting more. Samantha Chase did a good job of showing what close family bonds look like with the Montgomery family. Each story drew me in and held me captive until the very end. So want to read the rest of the series. Received a copy of this book for an honest review.
