4 Stars

Friend to lovers and a brother's best friend, Two amazing tropes weaved into one story that is heartwarming and sexy. John Hartley and Kirsten Leigh perform this emotional and beautiful tale by Kristen Proby in a way that makes sure it hits the heart. Take a Chance With Me gives us the one we have been waiting for. Well I have been! Good things are worth waiting for.

Maggie took a chance years ago and put herself out there. Wanting Cameron is nothing new for her but she knows when the job calls he goes. After a bad marriage Maggie knows exactly what she doesn’t want or need. Her want for Cameron has never changed but her self happiness it’s something that does come first in her life.

Cameron lives a life of secrets. Because of his job everything is hush-hush. Cameron knows more than he is allowed to tell, information he knows that could help someone he cares about. Cameron has begun to put the at the drop of a call, I am gone for the job aside to start living the life he wants, with whom he wants. Caneron knows that there are obstacles ahead. But for her he will take on every one of them.


Take a Chance With Me is a wonderful romance filled with some mystery and deep roots in the family. It’s hard not to love the O’Callaghans. Cameron and Maggie are definitely two people that belong together. It just took them a very long time to find their way. They’re so sweet together. Their story is a long one with many hurtles and a bit of mystery but in the end, they get their happily ever after

Take A Chance With Me

Maggie’s ex was a jerk, and we have known that since either the first or second O’Callaghans book in the With Me In Seattle series. Cameron and Maggie have been flirting for so many books, I was waiting for this one for what feels like forever. I didn’t expect Cameron’s secret when I picked up the book. I don’t know why I didn’t see it coming but I didn’t. I didn’t expect a big blow up with Kane and Cam with this one because it seemed like everyone knew they were going to be together, but I did love the talk with her siblings.

4 ‘That’s More Than Love. That’s Everything’ Stars

OMG! Talk about a PERFECT ‘Ending!!! Since the very first O’Callaghan book – Dream With Me – I’ve been dying for Cam and Maggie’s story, and it’s finally here!

These two had quite a slow burn – and HOT first attempt as it seems, lol – throughout all the series, that it’s no wonder neither of them stands any chance right from the start of the book, so FINALLY they do give a chance to each other and their connection, and their match is all I dreamt it was: sweet, hot and passionate, or should I say Irish tempered, lol…

I must confess that after Cam and Maggie’s love story, I understand why Ms. Proby saved them for last, their fated match was the perfect way to wrap up the O’Callaghans’ tales, with its EPIC Epilogue, wow. Still swooning so very hard, even now. Family and love, indeed Everything! <3 <3 <3 <3

Finally Cam and Maggie

I've been waiting for this book to find out what happened between Cam and Maggie. I'm not disappointed at all. I love this Irish family and I hope we can see more of them in future books. I liked the narration by John Hartley and Kirsten Leigh. Kristen Proby writes such wonderful stories.

Another great Addition to the series

I have loved the With Me in Seattle series from Kristen Proby and this is a continuation of that series with side characters and the extended family and friends. I do love seeing and hearing about characters from past books that tie everything together and bring a sense of comfort and familiarity. This is an age gap, friends to lovers story with a touch of mystery, intrigue and a long overdue restart of Maggie’s life after a disastrous marriage. Cameron is the sexy older man who has been a family friend for years, but has a mysterious job and didn’t stay in town long enough to start a relationship with Maggie, the girl he always loved. John Hartley and Kirsten Leigh are fantastic and bring this story to life perfectly. This can easily be enjoyed as a stand alone, but I highly recommend starting at the very beginning of the With Me series. You won’t be sorry!

Finally giving in

He had skills he couldn’t share and was always gone at a moment’s notice. Maggie had taken the world by storm after a marriage that had more secrets that were slowly being unsurfaced. She was desperate to leave that part of her life behind. Cam and Maggie are absolutely everything to one another and he helps her achieve her dreams. What an amazing ending to the O’Callaghan series. Kristen Proby never disappoints and positively shines!

Disappointed male narration and story

Male narrated was terrible!! Hated listening to his whisper type voice. Very disappointed I spent money on this story. The best part this in the preview.

High Romance, Low Angst, and Long Awaited

If you are anything like me, you have been following the O'Callaghans since book 1, and waiting for Cam and Maggie's story just as long. This story could be considered instalove as a stand along, but their love is anything but instant, it has been growing and teasing the reader and taunting the characters for 4 books. I started to worry these two would get together. The story is low angst, but high romance. Cam helps empower Maggie in reclaiming the rest of her life and finding the last pieces of her true self. This book gave me all the warm fuzzy feelings. It was like sinking into a hot bath with a glass of wine and some chocolate covered strawberries. It was so worth the wait and I know this will be a couple I revisit for future rereads.

Kirsten Leigh is a perfect Maggie, her narration and accent work was on point and extremely enjoyable to listen too. John Hartley was a really good Cam, and his accent work was also very impressive. There were a few mispronounced words and audio glitches but the entire experience of listening to Cam and Maggie finally get their HEA was great!

Good narrators, ok story. Loved the epilogue

I've been waiting on Cam and Maggie's story. They were always these characters in the background of previous books and we knew there was something there, so why weren't they a thing?? I had to know where their tension stemmed from. We finally get our answers in book 5 of the lovable O'Callaghan series.

Kristen Proby knows how to create a series with likable characters and where the family is at the center of everything. I've loved all the O'Callaghan siblings, their parents, and the connections they have with the other "With Me" series. They make you want to be a part of their family. And we definitely still got this in Take A Chance With Me, but it just didn't have me loving the story. It fell a little flat. And that just may be me. I anticipated so much more and felt like I only got a portion of what this couple was.

Maggie and Cameron have been a part of each other's lives since childhood. Cam was Maggie's brother's friend growing up and became a part of their family when his family was less than desirable. Cam has a job that he can't talk about and he is overall pretty secretive, but just wants to take care of Maggie and all those around him. He's alpha in all the right ways.
Maggie on the other hand grew up with an amazing family, but is coming off the recent death of her husband who was an all around horrible person in general. Maggie wants to close that portion of her life and move on, but secrets of his life keep popping up, deterring Maggie from moving on.

I've loved these characters in past books and I still enjoyed them in this book. I just wanted more. It seemed to just develop fast. Once they committed to being with one another, they were with each other. Really no conflict and a somewhat easy relationship. I liked the ease of their relationship, but I wish there was more. More to it developing. More details surrounding her husband and his past and more of Cameron and his secret job that led him to Maggie and her husband.

With a that all said, I enjoyed Maggie and Cam's HEA, the visits of all the past characters and the epilogue from her dad. How sweet was that? And the narrators did a great job of portraying our characters. They were fun, got the accents right and brought these two characters to life. A good ending to a series, but didn't hit quite the same way as the previous books. 3.5 stars.

Amazing!

Wow… This story was definitely worth the wait… I have been waiting for Maggie and Cam’s book for what seems like forever.
These two had such amazing chemistry. Maggie is such a spitfire you just knew with her Irish energy their banter was going to be so much fun to read.
Cam totally just stole my heart. I loved how alpha he was and made sure that Maggie had nowhere to hide from him.
I’m so sad to see this series end but the epilogue just put a big bow around the entire series.
These narrators totally captured Cam and Maggie!

Excellent book

Finally it’s Maggie and Cam”s turn! I was really looking forward to reading this book. I wanted Maggie to finally get her HEA, she’s been screwed over in the past by “The Lemon” so she deserves some good. Also, Cam and her have been circling each other for years, you know that there’s something there but not why they don’t act on it. Now we know! This book surpassed my expectations. You find out about Cam”s past and more about “The Lemon”. It’s a great book, I especially loved the epilogue, it had me holding back the tears. I loved reading the book and the audiobook took it to the next level and brought them to life.
