New Release+Review: Meet Me Under The Stars by KD Proctor




Blurb:
When ratings for her popular DIY show start to circle the drain after the sudden death of her sister, Charlotte “Charlie” Conti has only one mission—to plan a comeback. But her sister had other plans. As part of the will, Charlie must work with *him* to create a memorial scholarship in her sister’s memory. The same *him* Charlie fell in love with three years ago while working at a summer camp. The same *him* she dumped, to protect his heart. Sexy, British player, Nate Walsh, has sixty days to find a new job or he’ll be deported back to England where he’s no longer welcome. He doesn’t have time to work on a memorial scholarship with *her*. The same *her* who shattered his heart without explanation or warning. The same *her* he’s never gotten over. Unable to agree on the specifics of the scholarship, Nate and Charlie challenge each other to a winner-takes-all competition. They both know the only way to win is to turn up the heat and tempt one another with the one thing they both want: each other. But as sparks fly, their true feelings resurface. Nate and Charlie must decide if their love is worth the effort and if they can overcome their disastrous past mistakes to spend forever together.

Charlotte “Charlie” Conti is taking a break from work after her sister’s death. When her work on her DIY TV show starts to suffer, the network sends her away to “sort” things out which means her job is on the line.
Nate Walsh is working on his research wanting to break a record and make a mark that could give him the extra push he needs to get his work visa sponsored and stay in the U.S. when he receives a letter from the government giving him the feared deadline to sort his situation.
It’s at that time in their lives when their paths will come to cross again when the terms of Gwen’s will bring them together and make them work establishing a scholarship fund and taking care of her memorial at the camp she always loved.
This is a story about a second chance brought about in the most unusual way, but it’s also a story about love, friendship and grief.
There just too many things to love about this book. Nate and Charlie are amazing characters and their love for each other is deep and pure, tainted by the lack of communication and the misguided, but still selfless actions that bring on their breakup. The trip to memory lane during the week before the reunion, the friendships they still have and the way they deal with the pain of loss and support each other.
In a nutshell, MMUTS is a gem that will pull on the strings of your heart.
I think this was an amazing debut for Ms. Proctor and hope it’s only the beginning of a fruitful writing career.
Some of my favorite passages: “You know, hope is a funny thing. It always seems to find its way to you even when you think there is nothing to be hopeful about.”
“To me, love is more like a mosaic – creating something beautiful while still flawed and imperfect.”

About KD Proctor

KD Proctor loved college so much that when it came time to graduate, she didn’t want to leave. Trading in her textbooks for student handbooks and policy manuals, she began a career in College Student Personnel and she fulfilled her wish to stay on a college campus forever. She always joked that one day she’d write a book about college students, never expecting that to come true! KD lives in West Central, Minnesota with her husband and fur-kids. She likes to write fun twists on the usual tropes that we all love. Her characters are smart, funny, and always swoony. And yes. They always get their happily ever after. Before being accepted for publication, MEET ME UNDER THE STARS (formerly titled IF YOU’RE EVER IN TOWN) was the 2016 YARWA winner for the New Adult category.
