A letter from Summer Montgomery of MEANT FOR YOU to Fresh Fiction readers:

Some people think the hardest thing about being me is the fact that I’m the only girl in a family of four boys. But believe it or not, that wasn’t it. Not really. No, the hardest thing about being me is the fact that I’ve been in love with Ethan Reed for my entire life and he’s my oldest brother’s best friend. Talk about a dilemma. If I couldn’t get a date with just any old guy without four over-bearing brothers looking over my shoulder, how was I ever going to get Ethan?

Luckily, fate lent a hand.

Not quickly, mind you. But it did.

Oh, I had tried everything – smiling, flirting, doing my best to take an interest in everything the guys did – but none of it seemed to work. Then there was the time and distance as we grew up and our lives began to take hold. It wasn’t until I was an adult that Ethan finally seemed to see me. Really see me. And after so many years of dealing with life’s disappointments, I knew I had to do something – something drastic.

Ethan talked to me about taking risks in life and it was that one comment that really stuck. And then I had to act on it. And I kissed him.

And he kissed me back.

And the rest…is history.

Exclusive Excerpt from MEANT FOR YOU

“I’d had a crush on you for so long and you never noticed me and…”

“Wait, wait, wait… You had a crush on me?”

Summer rolled her eyes. “Oh come on, Ethan. You can’t tell me you didn’t know!” she said with a laugh. “Everyone knew! Hell, my brothers used to throw things at me to stop me from staring at you!”

Ethan stopped and thought about that for a moment and then started to laugh. “Seriously? That’s what that was about?”


“I remember your brothers always throwing stuff at you…popcorn, socks… I think I remember James throwing a basketball at you once and I thought it was odd.”

“They told me I was being a nuisance.”

Shaking his head, Ethan continued to laugh. “Not to me, because clearly I didn’t even notice.”

“Thanks a lot!” she cried and went to pull away, but Ethan pulled her in close.

“Don’t take it like that,” he said and wrapped his arms around her. “I just meant that I never knew. I always thought you were beautiful and sometimes I had to wonder if your brothers ever caught me staring at you.”

“I don’t know. Did they ever throw anything at your face for no reason?” she asked with a smirk.

“Not that I can remember. But it doesn’t matter. All I know is that you’re here now and I’m seeing you, Summer. Really seeing you.”

Her eyes went wide at his words and the sincerity behind them. “What do you see?”

“I see a woman I want to get to know better. A woman who is sexy and intelligent and just…everything.”


She dares to dream...

Summer Montgomery wants to be taken seriously almost as much as she wants her brother's best friend, Ethan. But with a long resume of seemingly random career choices and a protective brother on watch, those things are nothing more than pipe dreams...

Does he dare to try?

Ethan Reed would like nothing more than to live by his own rules. Not wanting to disappoint his best friend Zach, or any of the Montgomerys, Ethan's had to push his long-denied feelings for Summer aside. But it only takes one night away from watchful eyes to make impossible dreams come true...

About Samantha Chase

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

After reading your excerpt, I literally had to stop for a
minute, to take in what I had just read. You really tugged
on my heartstrings, and made my evening - not because it
brought back any type of memory, but because it just made me
feel good to read that excerpt!! I Thank You for that, and
I definately put your book on my TBR list!! I know this is
a book that I'm going to enjoy reading!! Congratulations on
your latest book, and it's going to be a runaway hit!!
