Go With Me (With Me, #2)


New Adult/Contemporary Romance - Recommended for readers 17 and older

I, Daphne Fox, have a few things to confess:

1. I hate Nick Brady. Loathe. Abhor. Can’t stand him 95% of the time.

2. That other 5%? I’m not talking about that at all.

3. People think I’m lucky for surviving the car crash. I disagree.

4. Nick is the only guy who makes my nightmares go away.

5. I won’t love him, though. Love is not worth the pain.

I, Nick Brady, have a few confessions of my own:

1. I don’t hate Daphne Fox. At all.

2. I find her scar sexy. Just like the rest of her.

3. I may be her older brother’s best friend, but that’s not going to stop me.

4. I love her.

5. And I’m going to do everything I can to have her.

My Review

OMG I was so excited to see that Go with me was Daphne and Nick’s story!! I knew from the first book that their story was going to be a knuckle dragging, barb throwing all-out battle of wills, and let me tell you Miss.Patrick delivered. With Nick’s protective, witty and all out hotness and Daphne being a self-proclaimed “Funny girl, whose swearing could make a sailor blush” this book is a riot and a heartbreaker. When these two aren’t trading insults and witty com backs they are burning the pages up with innuendos and out right sexiness.

In the first book we learned about the tragic accident that Daph was in that almost cost her  her life. She may have lived through the accident and gained a lot of scars that everybody could see daily but it was the scars on her heart and soul that kept her from really living. That night she lost her first love, her best friend and her friend’s boyfriend, all because someone made the choice to drive drunk. After the accident she decided to start being who she really was but to keep her heart locked up so she would never have to feel that loss again. It was easy enough to keep everyone at bay, all except her family and the extended family that her brother has brought in. Then enters one…..

“Nick fucking Brady”

Nick has been Daph’s brother’s best friend and roommate for a long time and he has watched, loved and wanted Daphne from afar for just as long but he doesn’t want to wait anymore and is more than willing to make sure she knows that.

“Nick leans forward, his voice dipping low. “But don’t forget, Daph, what I said you’ll be with me—“ “when hell freezes over.” His jaw firms with determination.” Hell is about to freeze over, then.”

I love Nick he wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to Daphne. Even though she is dragging her feet and being as stubborn as a two year old in a grocery store about the way he feels for her and the way he knows she feels for him.

“Maybe I’m just not interested in you.”
“And maybe the pope isn’t Catholic.

The way these two go at it had me laughing out loud one chapter and fearing my kindle would combust in the next! I tell you Nick knows how to wow a lady and make her feel like she is the only one in the world that can keep him alive. I loved the fact that he never questioned his feelings or interest in Daph, even when she was telling him otherwise. The author did a great job with the struggle of Daphne letting go and moving on, at no point was I so frustrated with her inner turmoil that I wanted to quit reading and that is a big feat in my opinion because I have had other books that I literally had to put down in fear of throwing my kindle across the room because I was so annoyed with the “should I’s and the shouldn’t I’s”.

“And every time you walk into a room, I can’t breathe. Every time you smile, I can’t think. Every time you look at me, I can’t function—and yeah, that even happens when you’re glaring at me.”

This book was also rounded out nicely with the other characters that I have grown to love. Jamie the smart ass, Casanova. Griff the silent and broody. And of course the couple that started the series Caleb and Hailey. We get to catch up with them all and even learn a little more about my favorite smart ass, whose story I’m so excited to read in the next instalment.

So in closing because I could go on for ever about this book and every single character……This is a must read and I Miss.Elyssa Patrick has a fan in me for lifeJ Now I just wanna leave you all with my favorite line in this book that I have actually started using in my everyday life…..

“Keep calm and kiss on.”
