Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Wonder with Me is a novella in the With Me series by Kristen Proby. It’s also part of the 1001 Darks Nights world. It can be read as a complete standalone but it will make you want to read more in the series. I have read most of the books and it’s one of my favorites! Damn…I need to get caught up!
Reed’s life changed the minute she walked through the door into his office two months ago. His daughter, Piper turned his world upside down and he has loved every minute of it. Their love was instant. Their bond took time and now it was December and he wanted her to have the best Christmas ever. She deserved it especially after losing the other parent she ever knew until she met her father. So, he hired the best to decorate his home.
Noel was in the interior decorating business. She was extremely booked but when someone makes an offer you can’t refuse, you reschedule your massage. And she was so glad she did, the home was beautiful and the owner was sexy as Sin and so sweet with his daughter. And flirty too! She didn’t get involved with clients but she knew from the first glance and flirt that he was going to be different. She was in so much trouble!
I don’t want to spoil anything so I will keep it at that. I will say that I loved it! The story. The characters. The flirting. The Christmas decorations. It was a perfect addition to the With Me series.
Quotes:
“You never know how hands-on a client wants to be.”
“Consider my hands off,” he says. “At least, where the Christmas décor is concerned.” My eyes meet his. If I’m not mistaken, Reed is flirting with me.
“You just made me a laughing stock in front of my crew.”
Reed frowns and looks around the driveway. “The only one looking this way is Bob, and he’s not laughing. He looks proud of me.”
“Sidebar. Is this book as dirty as it looks from the cover?” I glance over to see what he’s holding, then smile.
“Dirtier.”
“Maybe I should start reading you bedtime stories,” he says.

 

About WONDER WITH ME:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a new story in her With Me In Seattle series…

Reed Taylor doesn’t pay much attention to the holidays—until he receives a surprise present. Four-year-old Piper is the daughter he never knew about, and with the death of her mother, is also now the roommate he never expected. He’s determined to make their first Christmas together one she’ll never forget.

Noel Thompson has gotten her share of strange requests in her career as an interior designer. The call to design a beautiful home for Christmas is more like a dream come true. And that was before she met her new employer—sexy and mysterious, he’s everything she ever hoped Santa would bring her.

As Noel showers his home with holiday spirit, Reed showers Piper with love. And the busy life he’s created for himself no longer seems nearly as important as the one Noel is helping him build with his daughter. But if he can’t convince his decorator to stay, this could be the only year he feels the true wonder of the season.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Excerpt:

“Who decorated your home?” Noel asks in the kitchen. She’s using a camera to take photos of the rooms, and looks at me over the lens.

“I bought it like this,” I say and smile. “Furniture and all. So I’d have to ask the real estate agent. Why do you ask?”

She purses her lips and shakes her head. “It just doesn’t feel like you. And I know that sounds odd, considering I just met you, but it’s quite cold. There’s no color in here.”

“I spilled juice on the couch,” Piper admits. “And my mom always used to say that white furniture isn’t good with kids around.”

“She probably had a point,” Noel says with a wink. “The layout is brilliant, showing off the view.” She points to the accordion windows that open to the outdoor living space, and the view of the water beyond. “But the furniture is white, the rugs are white. Everything is white.”

“It’s clean,” I offer.

“It’s cold.” She wanders over to the staircase. “Will I be working upstairs?”

“Everywhere,” I confirm. I want Piper to have the best Christmas of her young life. After everything she’s been through this year, she deserves it. My daughter takes two of my fingers in her hand as we climb the stairs behind Noel and my heart catches. It still takes my breath away when she reaches for me, climbs in my lap or kisses my cheek. Piper is an affectionate little girl, which is something I’ve had to get used to, but I wouldn’t have her any other way.

“I want to show you my room,” Piper announces, pushing her way to the front and leading Noel down the hall.

Her room is across from mine, so I can hear her if she needs me. I’d originally put her down the hall, but that first night here in the house she had a horrible dream, and I couldn’t get to her fast enough.

I moved her things here, across from my room, the next morning.

“Oh my goodness,” Noel says from the threshold. “Piper, this is beautiful.”

“I got to pick it out myself,” Piper says proudly.

My daughter’s room looks like a princess threw up all over it. Pink upon pink upon pink flows everywhere, from her bedding, to the carpet, to the wall color. Her bed is a full-size canopy, with flowy curtains hanging down. I had a mural of happy flowers and butterflies painted on one wall.

“Finally, a room that a girl can get comfortable in,” Noel says, then sends me an apologetic smile. “Sorry. I don’t mean that to sound as bad as it does, it’s just this room is absolutely perfect for a little girl.”

“No offense taken,” I say as I lean my shoulder on the doorjamb and watch as Piper shows off her books and her dolls.
