Come As You Are by Lauren Blakely
couldn’t have scripted a more perfect night.
For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I’m not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine—multimillionaire. But who’s counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met, who happens to like dancing, witty banter, and hot, passionate up-against-the-wall sex as much as I do.
There's no need for names or business cards. And that’s why I’m eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge…bank account.
Everything’s coming up aces. Until the next day when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash — a lot complicated.)
He's charming, brilliant, an incredible lover, and right now I want to stab fate in the eyeballs.
I've had one goal I've been working toward, and lo and behold, my mystery man is the very person who stands between me and my dream job. A job I desperately need since my hard-knock life has nothing in common with his star-kissed one.
But it’s time to put that fairytale night behind me, and focus on learning what makes him tick. Too bad it turns out his quirks are my quirks, and his love affair with New York matches mine.
And as we spend our days together, I discover something else that feels like a cruel twist of fate — I’m falling for this naughty prince charming, and that’s not an ending I can write to our story.
Review by Lorena
Lauren Blakely always gets me with her covers. She has the most sexiest covers EVER and I always want and need to read her books once I see those delicious abs or sexy as sin men on her covers and as I start reading the story, I just picture that gorgeousness as the lead character.
Come As You Are was one sexy little stand-alone with some crazy funny banter between Flynn and Sabrina. They meet at a masquerade ball, both wearing masks and have one crazy night of sex against the wall that leave them both wanting and wishing for more but Sabrina takes off like Cinderella. Good thing they did get each other's digits and they were able to schedule a date to meet face-to-face. But Sabrina is asked to cover a story on none other than the multimillionaire, who happens to be none other than Flynn. So obviously there is a conflict of interest so they can't pursue what they wish they could because she has to cover a story on him.
But Sabrina and Flynn spend a ton fo time together so she can get her cover story and she wants to get it perfect because it's for a publishing company that she's hoping she will get hired permanently by impressing the owner with a kick-ass article.
But as much as Sabrina and Flynn try to suppress their feelings for each other, it keeps getting harder and harder because they're spending so much time together. Flynn is also skeptical because he's had women proposition him because of his money. He just wants to find a girl that will like him for him and not for his wallet size and he's starting to slowly realize that Sabrina could be the one for him.
Sabrina and Flynn were the perfect nerdy couple that I've ever read! They were both sexy, funny and smart people that made a perfect fit. How can this relationship go wrong??
I was so enamored with this book. I was completely engrossed from beginning to end and I just couldn't stop laughing at how crazy these two were together. I loved all the smartness that was going on in this book!
Lauren Blakely knows how to write a kick-ass book! A book that will have your undivided attention at all times!!
Another spectacular 5 star book for this amazing author!
