Book Description

At 24, Mallory Leyton didn’t expect to still be living in the same house she grew up in, but ever since her mother’s Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis, that’s exactly where she’s been.

The last thing on her mind is love, but that’s what she finds with Ryan Scott on the beaches of her native Kennebunkport, Maine. There’s something mysterious about Ryan though and when she finds out what he’s been keeping from her, she wonders if a future is even possible for them.

If it were up to Cole Hollins, her close friend and former flame, Ryan would’ve been out of the picture before he even entered it. Cole’s never given up hope of rekindling the romance he and Mallory once shared and neither has Mallory’s mother. If it were up to Claire Leyton, her daughter would marry into the elite Kennebunkport society Cole belongs to, and Ryan wouldn’t even be an option.

Just as things seem to be falling into place, Mallory is forced to make a choice that ultimately changes her life forever.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too simplistic January 10, 2014
By Rubfay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am forcing myself to finish it. I almost quit after the first few pages but now I would like to know what Ryan decides to do.
It sounds like a teenagers first love. That is fine, but the writing style is not my favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where can I find a Ryan?? November 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pretty good storyline. Easy to follow and the characters where easy to love.Mallory was a character that I loved but she also had this way about her that I wanted to smack some since into her. I didn't care for the fact that she let so many people walk all over her and tell her what was best for her.And her sister.....well I go there.Lets just say she was the only character I really hated.

Cole the guy everyone thought was so right for Mallory was a pretty good guy and he truely did love her.I kinda felt sorry for him because Mallory just couldn't feel what he felt for her.But she did give it her all.So she deserves credit for that.Kenna,Mallory's best friend was a cool best friend and easy to love. I liked how she didn't judge Mallory like her family did.

Ryan..... Every girl needs a Ryan in her life! He was so perfect and lovable! I just loved that man! He was too perfect..the best character ib the book!

I would recommend this book for anyone needing a good love story to keep them intertained for a weekend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Juvenile February 10, 2014
By Annod
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I guess if you want an adult novel you probably shouldn't read young adult. Still, I have found a few exceptions. This isn't one.

The plot wasn't a bad one, nothing far fetched or over the top. It is just that it was written in a very juvenile manner, almost as if geared toward a sixth grader level. Mallory is a nurse of two years. Now I am a nurse, and it is apparent to me that the author is not nor has done much research either. I know of no hospital where shifts seem to begin and end at odd as well as varying times of day; and 12 hr. shifts mean there are two, not day, evening and night. Neither do ER doctors or nurses jump into surgery. Fortunately for the novel's sake, the author mostly glosses over this aspect of Mallory's life and we are only subjected to a few more of these ridiculous inaccuracies.

The writing is stilted: 'Savannah told her that Ryan would ask about her schedule and that made her think he wanted to see her.' There were frequent grammatical errors: 'Mallory stuttered to think that..." "....maybe I'm just resound to my life in Kennebunkport.." " certainly like to read into things, don't you..." "...ever since you're grandfather died.." Oh, and goulash is something you eat. Goulashes (used twice, actually) are not those boots you wear...

Mostly the book is incredibly boring. The author glosses over Mallory's history with her mother and sister superficially and in a telling manner. She creates a very unlikeable character who seems to have the emotional maturity of a twelve year old in the decisions she makes. There is nothing real about these characters, even the emotion she tries to develop in the last chapters; no I won't write a spoiler even if there is really nothing special to spoil. Finally, WTH is with the musical playlist in the back of the book? That is weird.

I have gotten nicer in my rating. Two stars is generous for this novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book, nice price! November 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
24 year old Mallory has given up on her dreams in order to care for her mother, who is suffering from MS. She falls in love with Ryan, but doesn't see a future with him - not only because of his life, but because her mother is very invested in Mallory spending her life with an old friend (Cole) that is still in love with her.

I spent a lot of time frustrated with Mallory for accepting responsibility to take care of her mother, to the exclusion of her own life. But finally, she starts to change a little bit.

I really enjoyed this book. It was well written. Ryan and Cole were both awesome and I wanted her to be with both of them. Ultimately, of course, she chose one, and in my opinion, it was the right choice for her. I loved the setting, it made me want to travel to New England!

For those that care - it is a clean book - no swearing, and no graphic sex.
I would definitely recommend this book - it is a short, easy read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed December 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read Here with Me, after I read Megan Isbell's Last Train Home and am left disappointed. Last Train Home was so good, is this the same author. I finished the story, only because I skimmed through most of the book.
The main character was whiney and wish-washy. #Spoilers# There is a love triangle in the story. I became annoyed with the main character and I felt sorry for Cole. I did not really feel the love connection between the love interest I was left disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Safety or challenges? January 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a new genre for me --- new adult --- which I understand is the stepping stone between young adult and chick lit (or other adult genre of your choice). New adult is geared toward ages 18 to 24, I believe, and that is just as tumultuous of an age as the young-adult one, with plenty of room for fascinating stories.

Megan Nugen Isbell does an excellent job capturing that twenty-something mentality. Do you stay home and take care of family members who need you, or do you explore your dreams? Do you look for safety or challenges? And how does that relate to your dating life?

Here With Me has the young-adult willingness to explore tough issues (caretaking, in this case) combined with the depth of an adult novel. Highly recommended.
