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.

About the Author
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.
Meet Me Under the Stars was a really sweet read that I could totally see becoming a movie. It was funny, exciting, hot, and gave off a vibe that I couldn’t get enough of. The writing style allowed me to flow right along with the story as Charlie and Nate fought to one-up the other, while struggling to remember the reasons why they kept away from each other. When meeting up with friends after an appointment with Gwen’s lawyer, their little truce to see to a deceased loved one’s will comes to an odd end when they compete to see who will get to do what with the scholarship. Neither wants to lose, and their competitive streak will get them in trouble if they don’t stop to think of a better way to represent the late Gwen Conti. Thankfully, Gwen thought of everything…
I loved Charlie and Nate’s chemistry. The dramatic past was interesting, and it’s always fun to see supportive friends react so differently to broken-up relationships. Nate’s fraternity brothers were my comedic relief mixed with a sexy dose of what-ifs, mainly cause anytime I think of them, it’s parties and sexy times. Their dislike for Charlie made me feel bad for her, but at the same time, it gave me those ‘awww’ moments for Nate, who really needed a solid support. Charlie herself was nice to follow. She had a lot of stuff going on and Nate’s right — she did put a lot on her own shoulders, which is why I enjoyed seeing the change in her. The friends and family that helped them at camp also sweet characters with their own depths, and I enjoyed seeing them all get through to Nate and Charlie in some way. I definitely teared at some of their moments.
The impeding threat looming over all their heads was kept at bay and I loved the suspense it gave me. The ending was sweet for all the right reasons and in the end, I was left feeling pretty happy with this HEA. If you love to fall in love and back in love, this is a book to check out.
