When I’m With You by Harper Sloan
Nate is, by far, my favorite of the Hope Town family. We already knew he was hot, sweet, funny, but we find out now there's more to Nate than meets the eye! Nate and Ember's story is different from the others in that their obstacles to love aren't external (other than Maddox, who gets better with age!) When I'm With You is a great love story with some incredibly swoon-worthy moments, some bar-top dancing and HOT sex. You can't ask for much more! [April 2016]

It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.
The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.
He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.
