Come As You Are by Lauren Blakely

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Fairy Tale Stars

Synopsis

I 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

Once Upon a Time there was a rich Duke and a Poor Angel…….

The Duke lives in a big town house in Manhattan, where as the Angel lives in her cousins flat while she is away on an extended vacation, otherwise she would never be able to afford to live in the city.

The Duke and the Angel meet at a masquerade party and sparks fly, they have one fabulous, hot encounter in the library, and they never see each other again…………………….or do they?

Sabrina Granger is a freelance journalist looking for her next big break, it comes in spades with a fantastic job offer, she gets to interview Flynn Parker, the new big thing in technology for a company that she is dying to work for, not only is Flynn a brilliant businessman, he is also one hell of a hot MoFo !

Flynn Parker is a self made millionaire, he has the looks, the charm and the money, his day is spent coming up with brilliant ideas, and also trying to look interested when people are trying to sell them theirs, i mean why would he want to invest in a “how’s my sexual performance” App for your phone??

With the interview set up, Sabina agrees to meet Flynn Parker the day AFTER she has agreed to meet her mystery Hot Duke at a bar as he managed to contact her, but who walks into her line of vision and sits right down next to her……….Oops, now what???

🎧🎧 Narrated by the always amazing Dream Team of the sexy voiced queen Andi Arndt and the Sexy Melted Chocolate sounds of Sebastian York, these 2 together could set your grocery lists on fire 🔥🔥

~My Review~

4 Big Greek Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Now I want to book myself a trip to this little village Thakos in Greece… I usually am not pulled in by the setting of a book… but I think the author does such a magnificent job of describing this tiny village, she just made it come alive…. I also think she made Liverpool seem quite interesting, really all I know about Liverpool is the Beatles… yes, I vacation vicariously through the characters in my books!

Mandy was a fabulously relatable character…. blindsided by her husband‘s infidelity, a man she had been with since she was a teen … Mandy decides she needs to take a vacation and major props to her for going by herself…. she finds herself in this little village in Greece that isn’t quite what she remembers from her childhood…. but as she spends more time there she is taken with the charm of the place and the people…. and decides she wants to breathe new life into this village….

Looking back on this book there sure was a lot going on…. but really what I found most lovely was Mandy’s relationships with the females in her life…. she had a fabulous BFF in Haley and developed a wonderful relationship with Janet a girl she knew from high school who ran with a different crowd…. Mandy also had a strong relationship with her mother… and an interesting but important encounter with a woman on an airplane….

So… will Mandy learn to love again? Will she breathed life into the little village of Thakos? You will need to read this book to find out… it is really Mandy’s story to tell….

Recommend as a perfect beach read, when you’re in the mood for a lovely getaway…

*** thank you so much too Bookouture and Net Galley for a copy of this lovely book ***
