My Review of I’ll Be There by Samantha Chase
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Zach Montgomery is part of the wealthy and powerful Montgomery family and he’s used to doing what he wants and living life however he sees fit. He has a high-powered job within the family business and is a risk taker in his personal life, too. And when he suffers a life threatening climbing injury, his newfound vulnerability makes him even more difficult.
His longtime assistant, Gabriella Martine, is used to difficult men and she’s always been able to stick up for herself just fine. She always thought Zach gorgeous and charming but has always been careful to be professional around him. She’s sure he doesn’t feel the same attraction for her the way she does for him.
When Zach becomes more and more frustrated and dependent on others, his Uncle William, always the charming and meddling matchmaker, asks Gabriella to go to Zach’s apartment to work with him until he’s ready to come back to the office, to see if she can get through to him where no one else can. And she tries, she really does, but Zach is determined to be as difficult a jerk as possible. He’s fired numerous therapists and after several days, Gabriella is close to her breaking point with him. Frankly, I found it a little tough to believe he’d turn himself around, too, but I guess you never know with guys, right?
So finally, the new physical therapist is working out, Zach is making progress in getting around and he begins to see Gabrielle in a new light. The attraction he’s always felt for her, that he would never before admit, also comes to light and Gabriella is soon thrilled to take their relationship to a more intimate level.
Zach has a long way to go in becoming the kind of man who Gabriella could spend her life with and he’s not even sure he can change that much. He tries, but can he get it right? As I said, I guess you just never know with guys, hmm?
This is number six in the Montgomery Brothers series and it’s hot and sexy and frankly, I was glad Gabrielle was a strong woman, because as cute and take charge as Zach was, he needed to be put in his place if there was going to be a wonderful HEA!
