Meant For You (Montgomery Brothers #5) by Samantha Chase


Meant for You (Montgomery Brothers Book 5)

Synopsis:

She dares to dream...

Summer Montgomery wants to be taken seriously almost as much as she wants her brother's best friend, Ethan. But with a long resume of seemingly random career choices and a protective brother on watch, those things are nothing more than pipe dreams...

Does he dare to try?

Ethan Reed would like nothing more than to live by his own rules. Not wanting to disappoint his best friend Zach, or any of the Montgomerys, Ethan's had to push his long-denied feelings for Summer aside. But it only takes one night away from watchful eyes to make impossible dreams come true... 

Review:

I don't know how this author does it. How she makes these stories that I just love every time. Meant For You is the story of Summer and Ethan, two characters that have a lot of qualities I really do not like, but the author made me love their story anyways. With someone else writing it I could easily have hated this story, but I didn't. I couldn't. Amazing. 

Summer is the younger sister of the Montgomery nephews and no one really takes her seriously. She moves from job to job trying things out trying to find what she wants to do with her life. She moves around a bit, and after a bad breakup in New York she heads home. Only her family sends her out to Oregon to work at the family business out there. With her overbearing older brother who blames everything on her and his best friend whom she has always had a crush on she has got a lot going on. 

Ethan works with Summer's brother and he had a crush on her back in the day, but he hasn't seen her for a while. Now that she is here again he can hardly believe what a beautiful, amazing woman she has grown into. He is so into her, but he will never do anything about it since she is his bff's younger sister. He just couldn't do that. Her family would never accept him as Summer's boyfriend. They would kill him. 

Only things get kind of mixed up when Ethan goes to find Summer and ease her brothers conscience before a big climb they have planned. He and the brother are supposed to head out the next day and their heads have to be in the game. They cannot afford to be distracted, especially not Zach, the brother, since his leg is not completely healed from the last crazy adventure. 

Ethan goes out to make sure Summer is okay when she goes off without telling Zach where she is going, only to have her throw herself at him. He never imagined that she would like him like that, and he is not sure what to do. He wants to be with her, more than anything, but he is too afraid to tell her family that. 

When the two of them end up with a week semi-alone in Alaska thing get really hot between them. They definitely fall for each other, but what will happen when they go back to the real world? Will Ethan stand up with her against her family? Will he still want her? It is obvious they both care about each other, but how will they act once her family is around? 

This is where another author would have made me hate this story. Ethan is so wishy washy never really standing up for what he wants. He tries to be a good guy, but I just wanted to yell at him at times. Like come on man! Man up and deal with it. She is worth whatever her family will throw at you right? And Summer? She needs to not just jump to conclusions and make issues where there shouldn't be/aren't any. Oh the end, what Ethan does, that is not called for. I couldn't believe Ethan would be so cruel like that, but it all works out in the end. Summer is wishy washy herself, wanting one thing but telling people she wants another. Without Summer's friend Gabrielle being the voice of reason I don't know that this would have ever worked out. Not that Summer ever listens to her, but still she says what she needs to to try and help these two get their happily ever after. They can really be stubborn at times and need someone to step in. This was another great read by this author!
