On the rare occasion that he has downtime, he spends it at his home in Martha’s Vineyard.

London Watson is a Tony Award-winning actress on Broadway. When tragedy strikes her family, leaving her alone and injured, she flees Manhattan for Martha’s Vineyard.

But when she meets the charming young girl next door and her sexy uncle, they soon lure London out of her shell as she finally begins to heal from the wounds of her past.
But when London feels confident enough to return to the spotlight, she’s dealt another devastating blow. Will the newfound love between London and Finn be enough to conquer all? Or will it be over before it has a chance to grow…?
NICUnurse’s Review of All the Way by Kristen Proby
All the Way is the first book in Kristen Proby’s new series, Romancing Manhattan. Since it is book one, it is obviously a standalone book!
Finn Cavanaugh is a successful attorney who has volunteered to take his troubled teenaged niece for the summer on Martha’s Vineyard. There they run into London Watson, the Broadway star who’s parents’ estate Finn helped settle months earlier. She’s been injured in the fire that took her parents’ lives, and she’s on Martha’s Vineyard to rest and recuperate in hopes of returning to her beloved career. Despite their initial rocky meeting, Finn and London begin dating in this idyllic setting, and their relationship blossoms quickly. But will life, work, and a devastating secret revealed make… or break… them when they both return to Manhattan?
Kristen Proby was one of the first authors I discovered when I purchased my first Kindle Fire. I loved her With Me in Seattle series, and that’s the one that hooked me on her writing. I haven’t read all of her books, but most of them I have either read or they are on my TBR list/pile! So needless to say, I was quite excited to get my hands on this book!
NICUnurse’s Rating: I give All the Way 4.5 propellers. Maybe it’s me (sometimes it really IS me), but I just didn’t feel like this one pulled me in like most of her other books, so I’m taking a half star off. I did love the all the characters, though. (OK, maybe not so much London’s brother.) Both Finn and London are a bit older and have never been married. So they are both set in their ways and have issues communicating and understanding each other that are truly realistic. (My husband and I were nearly 30 when we married and had similar issues, so I speak from experience!) Both of them have successful careers that they love, and they find ways to make their relationship work despite insanely busy schedules and lots of travel. I honestly love that neither of them wants to just give up on their relationship when they realize how crazy life is after they return to Manhattan and settle back into their jobs. Finn loves his family, and they are all close, which adds some frustrating yet funny moments. I won’t talk about the secret because that enters spoiler territory, and you guys know how much I hate spoilers. If you like contemporary romance with a twist of suspense, you’ll be really happy reading this book. So run… pick up your copy today!!

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self-publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
