Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he's your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy...among other things, and it won't happen again. Jules won't risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her. Nate McKenna could give a shit about the no fraternizing policy. He wants Jules and he'll have her.
The rules could bend around them, or be damned. He's not a man to be taken lightly, and Jules Montgomery is about to find out just how he responds to being pushed aside after the best night of sex he's ever had. She can fight all she wants, but he'll have her in his bed in the end. Fight With Me is the second novel in the With Me In Seattle Series.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Fight With Me is the second book in the Seattle series by Kristen Proby and it is the love story of Jules and Nate. I gotta say that while I enjoyed the first book, this one is far better. I loved it! Fight With Me is a must listen for every romantic soul. It is heart-warming, full of swoon moments and a whole lot of sizzling scenes. We first met Jules in Come Away With Me, book one in the series, as Natalie’s roommate and best friend. Jules comes off as a feisty and independent woman who lives her life for her and takes what she wants. Nate is Jules’ boss and he is someone that ignites every cell in her body and sets her on fire. The problem is that the law firm both Nate and Jules work for has a strict no fraternization policy. Nate and Jules have one incredible night of passion which scares Jules. Unwilling to deal with the regret over the incredible night, Jules ends up sneaking off while Nate is asleep and then ignores him in the following weeks until he stops trying to talk to her about that one night. For eight months Jules and Nate have managed to keep it strictly professional pretending that nothing ever happened between them. Nate becomes sick and tired of not having what he wants and he wants Jules. Have I mentioned how delicous Nate is...let's just say... tattoos, gray eyes, ex-UFC fighter, a piercing, now a senior partner in a law firm.... um....YUM! He decides to take matters into his own hands and has Jules come into his office one day. There he makes her an irresistible offer. Nate asks Jules to spend the entire weekend with him, with no strings attached, in order for them to get to know one another better. Jules does not have enough strength in her to turn Nate down. So ensues the beginning of their secret and steamy romance. Jules and Nate were simply perfect for one another. Nate pursues Jules with a relentless determination. This book is the perfect blend of sweet & sexy. If you’re looking for a truly perfect HEA; you’re going to devour this book.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
What can I say about Jules and Nate....I love their story. The heat between the couple is smokin' hot; they are both strong characters who have to learn to work together through all the hickups. I kept waiting for the shoe to drop and their relationship to be exposed and I was surprised by how it came about. Not what I was expecting. This was well worth acredit or purchase.
Add a lot more friction between characters, there was NONE, making the entire story boring. The female lead was to perfect as well...
I think she did the best she could with what she had...
Yes. It was a fun story with interesting characters and some very entertaining and hot scenes.
Jules. She has gumption... I liked Nate but I thought he should have had more of an edge based on how he was described.
Good overall performance. The narrator has trouble remembering what male voice she used for what character. I am glad they picked up a male narrator later in the series.
Not suitable for children under the age of seventeen. :-)
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I bought this book because of the great rating but I found this story lacking as the author really tries to pack it all in here: our heroine is a former Playboy model (yep, you heard me) who is a workout fiend with a perfect body (thanks to her "terrific DNA/genes" which she keeps mentioning over and over) and is rich and successful at her job. Our hero is a former fighter, covered in lotsa tattoos with long hair AND a piercing down there you know where under his expensive business suits. He is of course a millionaire with fancy cars, fancy houses with "minions" and a motorcycle too (are you still with me?) WOW!!! All that in one! Put your other books down! (no, sorry, he was never a rock star though) Funny bit: Our couple just can't get enough bike time in because as Nate bemoans, they always have too much stuff to take with them. Yes, because they are wealthy 20 something super yuppies-- can't have it all kids!
This book also amused me from the get go, no, not from all the sex, and there was plenty of it which I didn't mind, but from its mirror like similarities with that holy writ, "50 Shades". Let us count the ways:
-"God he smells good. Body wash and sex and Nate. It's a heady combination" -- I think that remark might just be word for word from 50 Shades!
-Nate's constant paranoia when he wakes up alone in bed that Jules has "run off and left him" ("Don't leave me again!")
-the best: Nate actually says-- "You. Are. Mine." Red Alert! You gotta be kidding me!!!
-Shopping carte blanche at Neiman Marcus (at least here our heroine LOVES fashion and shops a lot and wears nothing but Louboutins!)
-Our hero insists on calling our heroine by her formal full name when no one else does, much to her chagrin, but it becomes their thing
-HIs faded blue jeans hang low on his hips along with his bare feet, etc.
-Meals around the "breakfast bar" in his fab "thirty floor condo" (oopsie I guess she meant thirtieth floor condo, because that would be a mighty big condo)
-Cooking in his kitchen with her iPod plugged into his system.
The first person commentary on how HOT HOT HOT he is, she is, it is, is endlessly repetitive. That word and its constant overuse in books like this one have only made it an utterly powerless and hollow cliche already. And as other reviewers have noted the same "erotic" dialogue over and over of "you're so hot baby" "I need you now" "I need you inside me". hot hot Not. And by the way, why name the hero Nate when her best friend is named Nat/Natalie. Gets annoying and even confusing when Nat and Nate are having a chat...see what I mean? Phew!
I agree with many other reviewers that there is not much of a plot. What's driving this is will everyone at the office find out about their relationship as there is a no-fraternization policy. Yep, that's it. There are a few red flags-- the hot ex wife who keeps popping up, the suspicious coworker, but they don't lead to a heck of a lot.
I liked the character of Jules. She was smart and funny. And I really enjoyed her bff relationship with Natalie. And Jules's family was fun. I liked Nate but he was Impossible!! He's mostly all the tough Alpha things, but impossibly emotional and romantic and loving from the get go. Did he have a wound that drove him though? Nope. He has a blue collar type dad who owns a gym, and his mom died when Nate was 7, but that's all we get. And it's an unfortunate HUGE disappointment. So he wasn't too interesting. When he started lighting candles and getting the bathtub ready that's when I had to put the book down for a breather. It was too much-- even Jules was flipping out! Nice fantasy, but it was over the top, I was chuckling.
Avid reader for 45 years
While written with flair, the plot revolves around Jules (age 260 and Nate who don't actually do anything except have stupid arguments and energetic sex. Boring! Jules & Nate work in the same office which has a policy forbidding co-worker to date, so they are real rebels! Nate is domineering and possessive, which Jules chooses to believe is a sign of true love, rather than insecurity and immaturity. Besides working out together to keep their bodies in perfect shape, Jules & Nate don't have any fun hobbies, cute pets or participate in volunteer or civic activities. I lost interest and didn't care what happened.
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
This series is pretty good so far. I would rank it in my top 10%.
This book is really hot. It's not very realistic, but I don't listen to romance for that reason. I like a steamy story and this one delivers. I will continue we the series. I enjoy the relationship between Julianne and Natalie. They are honest and both are strong. Definitely worth the credit.
Crazy for audiobooks!!
This one was a wee bit better than the first in the series, but the author is lacking in development of the story line. As a listener or a reader, I just wasn't drawn into the lives of these two characters. It's sad, because the story line has the capability of being quite good if written better. So, no. I wouldn't recommend. The narrator is inconsistent in her reading. She sounds child like often times. Worse in the first book than this one.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Jules Montgomery is attracted to her boss Nate McKenna. The problem is, nothing can ever happen because of the no-fraternization policy. But it did, a year ago. They had a one-night stand and after Jules leaves his apartment, they have been professional with each other ever since. Nate no longer wants to be professional, he wants more and for a lot longer than one night. He wants her any way he can get her. He just needs to convince her to take a chance.
Jules Montgomery was an independent sassy woman. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to work hard to get it. She is confident and intelligent. I really liked her. She never overwhelmed me with her attitude. In fact, I liked how comfortable she was in her own skin. She knows she is beautiful but doesn't act conceited because of it. She had a good balance of sexy badass and feminine chic going on. I loved how determined she was to keep her independence and work hard at her office job. She also is tough and can take care of herself, VERY well. Did she ever annoy me - Yeah, a few times. There were moments she seemed to run away from her problems rather than face them which was a bit frustrating. She could at times be a bit stubborn too. But overall, she was a great character.
Now Nate McKenna is one huge ass sexy HOTTIE!! Boy, did this man melt my panties. He was an alpha and protective. He had tattoos and a pierced cock. He was UBER sexy - He was also really intelligent and dedicated to his work. He is a bit of a bad boy with a dirty mouth but SO freaking sweet and romantic. I wanted to lick him up. I loved how determined he was to make Jules his. The things he would say and do made me absolutely SWOON! BUT... he was not perfect. Nope, he could at times piss me off. He wanted to take care of Jules, which is fine by me, but he could be overbearing at times. He was bossy and also got upset a tad to quickly.
The sex in this book was Super Sexy without it ever feeling like it was too much sex. We got a story that was really great and some great steamy scenes, a perfect balance. The ending was really great. All and all this was a grate listen, I loved it :)
Not believable...... Felt like it was a forced story.
All of them so far. She has a great voice.
"did not finish"
If your ideal heroine is a ex playboy model, executive bombshell who is super fit and practically perfect in every way barbie doll (do such people exist in real life?) who find love with an equally perfect man then this is the book for you!
I could not ever read another by this author the genre is still one of my favorites
I had no problem with the narrator it was the writing that got on my nerves
frustration and annoyance that i had spent money on it
I have tried repeatedly over the last few weeks to listen to this book but I have given up about a 3rd of the way in. you'll have to like repetition to listen to this as you have to hear about staring in to his beautiful eyes over and over again. the writing reminded me of my son doing his primary school english lit homework and having to use lots of wow words to describe things. seriously this book drove me nuts. maybe it gets better I don't know but i not sure i care to find out.
Maybe it's a bit unfair of me to review this as I only got as far as chapter 4 but I couldn't stand listening to any more of it. It was so boring! I was hoping for some sizzling chemistry but it was just endless "You're so sexy" and the hero was just too perfect. I like a romance where the hero is flawed and the heroine doesn't like him very much at first, and this wasn't it. The performance was OK though.
