A best friends to lovers story set against the atmospheric backdrop of the Scottish Highlands
Be With Me by Samantha Young is now live!
It was the friends-with-benefits proposition he never saw coming…
While Arran Adair might have followed the call of wanderlust in his younger years, it isn’t the reason he stayed away from Ardnoch. Home now, desperate to put the sins of his past behind him, and rebuild his life in the Scottish Highlands, Arran could never have predicted Eredine Willows. The Ardnoch Estate Pilates instructor is a complicated mystery and one Arran can’t help but want to solve.
Eredine has spent the last eight years hiding in Scotland and building walls between her and the people she cares about. Arran is the first Adair who doesn’t treat her as if she’s fragile and demands a genuine friendship. Yet, the attraction sizzling between them is undeniable. So when she realizes she trusts him, Eredine surprises them both by offering Arran one night of no-strings passion.
Arran knows one night will inevitably lead to a desire for more and he’s willing to stay by Eredine’s side for as long as it takes to convince her there’s something real between them. However, just when Arran thinks they might build a future together, Eredine’s past returns to stalk her. And Arran won’t just have to battle her demons to keep them together. He’ll need to battle his own.

My ARC Review:
The 4th book in the Adair Family series – I enjoyed reading this one and eventually finding out Eredine’s story!
Ery has been with the Adairs since Lachlan was setting up Ardnoch – whatever happened to her, he and Mac ended up rescuing her fetching her back to Scotland, where she has been for the past 8 years running pilates and yoga classes at the castle for Lachlan’s guests. In that time she has become another member of their family, babysitting for Thane and becoming best friends with Arran. She did have a crush on Brodan, but that never developed into anything apart from his flirting then flying off to do another film. But the last 6 months have seen her friendship with Arran build, going running with him every morning – but she is not interested in a relationship with anybody, due to whatever happened in her past.
Arran has the hots for Ery something chronic, he finds her stunning and is captivated with her, but is unsure how to proceed, knowing she is not into relationships. So when she offers a one night stand with him, he is blown away but unsure, as he definitely wants more than just one night with her. It irks him that she doesn’t trust him as much as Lachlan as she has not divulged her secret to him, but is willing to go to any lengths to win her over.
Both Ery and Arran have secrets about their past, dark secrets that you just know are about to catch up with them in this book! I loved being back with the rest of the Adairs as we catch up with what’s going on with them. Lots of family drama, hot steamy scenes and witty banter make this an enjoyable read as the secrets from the past catch up with Ery and Arran, putting them and the rest of the family in danger.
Looking forward to reading the last book in this series, all about Brodan, the film actor, who has stayed away from the rest of his family – something is definitely going on there!!
