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.

Good Books Don't Promote Violence
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 lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
This is the 1st book in the series that I read, and it was an interesting little romp of a book (I know, I know I probably shouldn't have got out of the sequence, but it really could have been a stand alone book).
In order to enjoy this book, the first thing I had to get over or ADAPT to is the absolute perfection of everyone in this group of friends/family!!
Jules Montgomery is a confident, gorgeous, blonde bombshell who works at a firm and is good at what she does (which I was never exactly clear about what it was she did, but ok, she was good at her job…lol). But that's not all, she has been on the centerfold for Playboy not once, twice, but three times!--And, having grown up with 4 overprotective brothers who are all at the top of the gene pool themselves (since one is a Navy SEAL, another a professional football player--oops forgot what the other two guys do, but they're perfect too), it's odd that she hasn't brought a boyfriend home to meet them (for fear of their overprotective reaction), but yet well, she's been a playboy bunny.--What the??? And, we can't leave out her BFF with model good looks and a super star Hollywood producer of a husband who is of course…perfect and gorgeous. [get the theme???}
Adding to this bombshell's glory, she's also into fashion with her Jimmy Choo shoes, designer clothes, and fabulous lexus, but she can also throw down in the ring with her man and physically challenge him with her cross-fit, super toned, strong upper body strength….
AND, just who is this man she can throw down and love on, with just the same intensity????--None other than her boss, Nate McKenna, who is not only a partner in the firm she works at (which I have no idea what the firm is, what they do, or specialize in???), but he is a previous UFC fighter and works out hard almost everyday of the week. He owns an MC, beautiful homes, luxury vehicles, and a sleeve of hot tattoos, but the biggest surprise is a piercing on a naughty place on his body.
SOOOOO, if you can get past all of the perfection of the two leads, then you can believe the plot which centers around the no fraternization policy at their firm which makes their romance a little bit of forbidden fruit. And, you can enjoy one hot, combustible relationship that is pretty smooth sailing with A LOT---let me emphasize A LOT OF SEX, sweet moments and an pretty fab HEA. Don't get me wrong, this couple does go through a few rough spots, but nothing too angst-filled or overdramatic. The issues get cleared up pretty quickly. And, this book is a good one for an easy, sexy comfortable read.
Narrator: Jennifer Mack did a great job..I enjoyed her narration.
This book is a lot like some of the movies out there. It's entertaining and serves a purpose, but I mean, it's not good. This is not a literary marvel; there's lots of repetition and it's pretty predictable, but the characters are well done and sometimes you just need to grab that hot chocolate and listen to a mushy romance.
I've officially read the worst book in human history. 50 shades was a masterpiece in comparison and that's saying something. should have titled the book, sex, sex, sex. This book had absolutely no plot, no conflict, nothing!
Narrator Jennifer mack is ok as a female narrator but they needed a male narrator as well because her portrayal of the male in this story is subpar. Could have been a better read instead of listen since her voice ruined it for me. It's hard to get in to the steamy scenes when her voice turns into a "cartoon character" as another listener termed it.
Some Narrators should not try to lower their voice while doing a male character, if it's so bad. How the producer doesn't see this as she is making this audio, I don't understand. It almost ruined this book.
Jennifer Mack made the male voice sound like Nicholas Cage in Peggy Sue Got Married. Very distracting as I couldn't think of anything else but how bad it was. Here Nate is, a strong handsome man and he sounds awful.
At least she did a good job in the rest of her narration.
I also thought the storyline was boring and empty and it took 3/4 of the book to pass before it was good. I don't mind good sex scenes but that's all there was and no story line. You need both. Crossfire series is so much better and it seemed like Kristen Proby took many of the terms from that book.
This is my first try in this series and I already bought 3 of these as they were on sale. Hopefully Jennifer Mack gets better in the next book.
Language was too vulgar for me. The "f" bomb was dropped in almost every sentence. Won't be reading any more in series. Too bad too, I liked the story line; and the next story sounds interesting.
couldn't get past the first few chapters.
too much sex, casual and unmeaning right from the start. Main character's attitude about intimacy was terrible. She was unlikeable. It's hard to have a main character you don't like right off.
it was fine. she only had poor text to perform.
the main characters
i liked other books by this author but NOT this one
I was doubtful the book would be as good as the first in the series, but I was delighted when it was equally as good! Now I am looking forward to book three without apprehension.
Civil War Nut LH
I had a tough time shutting off my iPod. I just didn't want to stop listening. Extremely steamy with a piercing I had to look up on the Internet. Had to remind myself to breathe! My only criticism would be Jennifer Mack's voices for Nate/male characters. They came off sounding really creepy. Still, overall she's a fairly good narrator and I love this series so far.
