About The Book

n New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new Romancing Manhattan series, three brothers get more than they bargain for as they practice law, balance life, and navigate love in and around New York City.

Finn Cavanaugh is known for being a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. He owns a successful law firm with his brother and brother-in-law in Manhattan. On the rare occasion that he has down time, he spends it at his home in Martha’s Vineyard. But when Finn’s troubled niece goes to stay with him for the summer in Martha’s Vineyard, he’s reluctant to take time off from work. That is, until he meets his beautiful new neighbor, London.

London Watson is a Tony Award winning actress on Broadway. When tragedy strikes her family, leaving her alone and injured, she flees Manhattan for Martha’s Vineyard. Hoping she can figure out how to pick up the pieces of her life, London is convinced that she’ll never be able to return to the stage. But when she meets the charming young girl next door and her sexy uncle, they soon lure London out of her shell as she finally begins to heal from the wounds of her past.

But when London feels confident enough to return to the spotlight, she’s dealt another devastating blow. Will the newfound love between London and Finn be enough to conquer all? Or will it be over before it has a chance to grow…?

My Review

All The Way is the first book In the “Romancing Manhatten” and I was able to read this through the narration as I got a audio copy through my local library. I was really intrigued by this one here, and seeing the way that this story sets off was quite a unique set up and I always get a kick out of reading a Kristen Proby Novel. This one definitely had the typical Kristen Proby vibe to the story and yes it does contain the third act conflict. I was interested to see how this story would play out in the end though. there is quite a bit of chemistry that we get introduced into and I enjoyed seeing the background of the characters and that they are more of a mature age. Their interactions that they have with each other really built into the chemistry quite well and we see that they have a bond to each other that they build. I did get a hoot of entertainment as their communication skills aren’t always the best fo talent. The hero especially has a steamroll of a personality and likes to take care of people, you can tell that its his love language. They both are wealthy, so he likes to do things for the heroine without consulting her and we are talking BIG things that she should be consulted with and you definitely can tell that his heart is in the right place, he just doesn’t always know when to back down from it. For the most part, I really admire how patient the heroine is with the hero. She has quite a bit on her plate, including a self absorbed drug addicted brother and has no other family. So she stands on her own in a very strong independent way and I admired her for that. I really respected the way in which she stands for herself and setting heathy boundaries and it showcased well the normalization of a romantic relationship in this novel which I greatly appreciated. The story is well endearing and you get sucked into it very quickly. I also really admired the way in which the story was emphasized on and even though the third act was predictable (anyone that has read a Kristen Proby) knows this from experience, I nonetheless had a fabulous time with this book and eager to read books 2 and 3. If you are a fan of this author, or just an endearing, captures your feels type of contemporary, than I can’t recommend “All The Way” enough to you.

Steam Level

Simmering—soft warm touches and light intimacy

Warm- a medium level of sexual tension, a balance of sexual and emotional intimacy, lighter on the details in the sexual moments.

Steamin’ up the room -the sexual content is more explicit in the language and tone, heavier amount of sexual scenes.

Blazing fire to the building-The prime focus is the sex scenes, scorching hot, and could burn one. Less focus on the emotional intimacy to the relationship.
