I'll Be There (The Montgomery Brothers, #6) By Samantha Chase

I was so happy to finally get Zach and Gabriella's story and Ms Chase made the wait worth while. We've had bits and pieces of them throughout the last two books in the series and in this story we finally understand what is behind all the snark between these two. There has always been such passion between them but neither seems brave enough to take a chance. That's where matchmaking Will Montgomery comes in!!

While recuperating from the injuries he sustained during a climbing trip, Zach Montgomery has successfully pushed away everyone in his life. At least that was what he thought. The Montgomery's are a tough bunch though and they aren't quite ready to give up on him yet. What they are willing to do is give him an ultimatum. Get over yourself, get serious with your rehab, or risk losing the one thing he wants - his position as the head of the Montgomery West Coast division. Along with that comes Gabriella. How can he possibly work closely with her in his home and not let his true feelings be known?

This is the 6th book in the series and while it can easily be read standalone, I recommend you read the other books in the series to get a true sense of the Montgomery family. I highly recommend it. 384 I was ecstatic when I found out that Samantha Chase was releasing a new Montgomery Brothers novel. This family is such a joy that it is no hardship to visit time and again. I'll Be There is Zach's story. Zach has been successful at whatever he touches. His personality, focus, looks and even his family name has opened doors but his ambition is the key to all of his triumphs. When larger than life Zach is forced down to earth after an accident he is anything but happy. Gabriella is a formidable match for Zach. She has worked hard to accomplish her achievements and has managed to do so despite the odds. Gabriella is no pushover. She speaks her mind. With I'll Be There Samantha Chase wrote a story full of triumph but she also introduced two characters afraid of letting anyone too close for fear of appearing weak. The lesson I took away from I'll Be There is that showing emotion is not weak. Emotions are a part of the maturity process that leads to a well rounded happy life. I received an ARC of I'll be There in exchange for an honest review. 10+ Stars. 384 I didn't love this one nearly as much as the previous novels but it's still quite good. Another sweet and lovely romance. This couple took me time to warm up to but I ultimately really enjoyed their growth as a couple. 384 I'm going to create a misunderstanding that is SO easy to fix, and a HUGELY disproportionate reaction, that they will have NO CHOICE but to break up!

I mean please, COMMUNICATION PEOPLE. 384 3 stars

I'll Be There was an OK read.

I was really looking forward to reading Zach and Gabriella's story, my attention was peaked from the previous book Meant for You it was obvious they had some serious sexual tension going on and I was excited to read how these two hotheads would get together.

While the storyline was good and it held my interest I found myself not liking Zach very much. He was such an ass, some of the things he says to Gabriella were very hurtful and imo not easily forgiven or forgotten.
I totally got how frustrated Zach was with his recovery but man was it frustrating watching this once confidant man whine and moan, he really knew how to throw one hell of a pity party =/

I did like Gabriella, she was strong and had a forgiving heart. I also loved her relationship with Summer, Zach's sister. It was fun having Summer and Ethan play a role in this book, they were good characters that helped make this book so much more entertaining.

I’ll Be There is a story about triumphing over life’s obstacles.

Zach is a successful business man who finds himself is severely injured during a mountain climbing excursion. He is not handling his new life circumstances well, so his family and business partners conspire to get him back on his feet.

Gabriella is Zach’s administrator assistant. She has had a crush on Zach forever but never acted on it. Gabriella has been seriously burned by an alleged past relationship at work and has kept their relationship extremely professional.

Zach has heard the rumors and judged Gabriella. What was once a cordial relationship has turned sour. But that is about to change because Zach’s meddling family thrusts Gabriella into Zach’s post injury self-isolation.

Zach is going through the gambit of emotions that follow loss, while Gabriella continues to accepts emotional and verbal abuse from those she holds dear.

This is a heartwarming story of healing. Chase masterfully tackles difficult life circumstances while still managing to bring you through the range of emotions one must achieve to truly heal.

384 O mocinho é escroto e a mocinha é trouxa. Fim.
Mas eu gosto dessa autora, gosto dessa coisa toda do tio casamenteiro e é isso. 384 2 'I'm bored and I don't believe in this shit' stars

I always like grumpy man, especially an injured and vulnerable one. Zach was seriously pissed at everyone who try to come and comfort or help him in anyway. He was verbally abusive towards his assistant, Gabriella. I didn't read the previous books, but from what I heard he was an ass to her even before he was injured from a climbing accident.

Anyway, what really bugged me is the way this story executed with too many filler and everyone is talking in circle. For almost half the book, it all revolves around Zach being an ass, his family trying to meddle with his rehab and Gabriella trying to get him to work. Rinse and repeat. Is getting old after awhile.

I knew the reason Zach was acting like an ass to Gab is because he secretly had a crush on her. Is super obvious in romance novel. But the reason why he turn from a friendly boss to an overbearing boss make me roll my eyes. He is supposed to be a big shot boss, but why is he acting like a 12 yo who got rejected by his crush? And he was holding this anger for 2 freaking years?

I actually don't mind reading about asshole, in fact sometimes I love them. At least give me a better reason or no reason at all. Please don't throw me such stupid reason.

The part that really make me wanna give up is, just after a chat with Ethan, telling Zach that he had been acting like a fool about Gab, Zach got cured and decided to make amend. If it was that easy, why did Ethan waited so long to set him straight.

I think this book is more suited for younger readers who are not as cynical as me. 384 Maybe it wasn't the smartest choice for me to start the series with the 6th book, but it is whatit is.

Despite the fact that this is a 6th book, it is easely readable as standalone.
But, there is one fact you should be warned about if you decide to read just this book: you won't get attached to characters and, because of that, you won't be so pleased with the story.
At least, that is what happened in my case.

The story follows Zach who is a complete control freak that had a terrible accident while mountain climbing and now he is a mess.
He has to use crutches to support himself and, like a little kid in a fifth grade, he is afraid other people will making fun of him because of that (actually, he is afraid other will see him as weak but I liked my perspective better).
As a control freak who loses control, he starts to behave as a grumpy spoiled brat who drawns in self-pity.

It was so hard to like him. As someone who knows how does it feel to have a terrible accident that leaves you unable to move for two whole months, make you learn how to walk again and go to phisical therapy every single day for months, I just couldn't feel sorry for Zach.
In my opinion, he didn't make any affort to became stronger and walk again, he was just angry at the whole world.

Gabriella took female book characters on a whole new level. She purrs and smells like Heaven (and no, this isn't a fantasy. It's a contemporary romance).

She is also oh so hot and an ideal girl for Zach since she doesn't mind being treated horrible. She loves her family who is making fun of her all the time and looking at her like she is some kind of marriage wracker.
And she loves Zach who is being rude to her constantly.

The writing style is simple and is easy to read.
The novel is written in third pespective and although it does have some cute scenes, it has more boring ones.

Reading this book felt like watching a movie, falling asleep and then waking up after hearing main charaters screaming at each other, wondering what actually happened.

It had a slow pace and then, all of the sudden, characters were just screaming at each other. It felt like drama came out of nowhere and I knew I must have lost my concentration while reading, but I just wasn't motivated enough to go back and reread what led to that.

Even though my review may sound harsh, I don't think this is a bad book.
I know some people that would love it and I would recommend it to romance lovers that do not overly analize what they read.

Note: I got this book for free via Netgalley in an exchange for an honest review. Thank you SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca.

Read this and more reviews on my blog: https://bookdustmagic.com 384 I really just can't get enough of these Montgomery Brother stories so I'm a bit sad to see the series end. William is a match-making genius and clearly the most important character in each book. (Edited: This wasn’t the end...there’s more to come!)

Zach was frustrating as hell. For being a brilliant business man he was pretty dumb when it came to the obvious. The way he treated Gabriella for so long after the incident with her family was extreme for the situation and uncalled for. I just wanted to shake the sense into him. Later after everything they've been through, one minor setback with his recovery and he says the most hurtful, awful things to her? It was awful and I'm rather upset that the apology for his behavior was so short and, even worse, so easily accepted by Gabriella.

Overall the story was good and the love between Gabriella and Zach and the ease at which they accepted it is what made this story worth reading. I'm happy to see each Montgomery brother, and sister, happy and will probably revisit this series in the future.

This Montgomery Has a Head for Business

Working for Zach Montgomery is challenging on many levels-coming from a wealthy and powerful family, he lives by his own rules and doesn't answer to anyone. But Gabriella Martine has no intention of backing down. She's used to handling stubborn men, and it doesn't hurt that Zach is smart, charismatic… and gorgeous.

And a Heart for Adventure

Zach's perfect world is turned upside down when a climbing accident leaves him broken, angry, and maddeningly dependent. In his slow quest for recovery, Gabriella is always there to help… but as Zach comes to see his beautiful assistant in a new light, he is forced to re-evaluate what it really means to be aman worthy of Gabriella's love.
