Come As You Are
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 se ...more

It's rare when I like both the hero and heroine equally. Usually one will stand out more than the other, but this time around, Flynn and Sabrina were the perfect pair. Flynn is one of the most adorkably sexy heroes ever and Sabrina was fantastically ...more
My very first thought on this book ? *Another Lauren Blakely book? Sign me up right now!*
Me, the girl who's not really a book-whore, after eyeing the cover for hours? *Hola, amigo!*
I couldn't wait to get my hot little hands on this book, because, well, ding-dong, hot nerd alert! And Flynn rocked this role like no one ever! I loved his wit, his sexiness, his absolute down-to-earth attitude. He's kinda like the whole package.
And Sabrina! Man, I'm in lust with this girl! Her passion, her whole per ...more
Sabrina and Flynn - 5+++++ Stars
Oh how I wish I could give this story a million stars!!! I love every book that Ms. Blakely puts out, but I think this may well be my all time favorite book ever by her. For a contemporay storyline, I thoroughly enjoyed the way these two characters met since Sabrina had a great love of Historical romances, just like I do. I loved the Duke, the Angel, the mystery and the hot, steamy love scenes can't be beat. Both of the ...more
Flynn is a man who has it all. He has a great job, great friends, great family, but he is missing that great gal to go along with all that.
Sabrina doesn't have it all. In fact she has had a tough go at life thus far. She is bright, and witty, and just the thing Flynn is looking for.
Flynn is thoughtful, charming, and a hot nerd who happens to be sexy as sin. He takes one look at Sabrina and I think he is a goner! These two ...more
Review & Excerpt at Of Pens and Pages.
It's better because we're Angel and Duke, city explorers, wordsmith and mathematician, poetry reciter and poetry receiver, and most of all, we are us."
Come As You Are is a perfect blend of sweet and sexy, with Ms. Blakely's signature humor and tension build-up that I adore. It's whimsical and romantic, but has its fair share of angst and longing. There's the frustration of having strong feelings for a person they spend a lot of time with, but can't ac ...more

➦But, as the blurb states, things get a bit complicated the next day. I can't give you more but if you're intrigued then pick it up. It's definitely a story with fairy tale-like ending and, while these characters probably won't live in my ...more
I can always count on Lauren Blakely to deliver a fun and romantic read that will make me smile. That's exactly what Come As You Are does. I fell for these characters immediately. The story is the embodiment of what it feels like to have an unde ...more
Sweet, safe and nice read.
Likable characters. He was a decent guy, she was a tough girl.
What I liked the most - they didn't include 'standard' drama/twist aka misunderstanding & keeping the secret. MCs spoke with each other, they communicated - hallelujah!
I wished for more relationship development, ILY came very sudden (for me).
The 2nd book by this author with NOT a manho hero. I hope it's her new pattern!

Sweet as frickin' pie, with all the succulent sweet bits to make for a solid, entertaining, endearing, super sexy, stand-alone HEA!
^^ Nerdy hot guy, steamy romance? ✓-CHECK!! ^^
🔥 - more than anything it appeals to my love of a nerdy-hottie-male-antogonist that has serious sex appeal. A strong female knows nerds are great lovers, we are just to hard up to look past the anti-alpha traits to get that far *snark*. Yet in this fictional romance we get to finally allow the
So here is what the romantic novel was about: 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—mult ...more

For me, diving into a Lauren Blakely novel is unlike any other reading experience. Whether it’s one of her authentic feeling male point-of-view romcoms or one of her sexy, swoony contemporaries, there are a few things that always happen for me whenever I pick up one of her novels. I learn cool new things that I didn’t know before I started, her attention to detail never fails to impress me, and I fall helplessly in love along with the characters. I consistently get lost in her stories ...more
Love that's he's a hot tech nerd and she's a go-getter who can be seduced by word play because as a journalist she appreciates the written words.
There's some hot stuff in here. And I LOVE when there's intellectual seduction and this had lots of those. I enjoyed it. Not a much as I've enjoyed Wanderlust and Part Time Lover but still a cute read.
It doesn’t matter how many books I have to read on my kindle, I’ll always devour every romance Lauren Blakely brings to life. I’ll make time for each book by this author because Lauren Blakey’s stories aren’t just heartfelt; the writer herself has a huge heart. You can’t help but love Lauren Blakely along with her completely captivating love stories. I just can’t say no.
Before I can get into the inside of Come As You Are, the outside is an eyegasm of the highest degree. I’ve seen tons of clench- ...more
This was an entertaining listen from Lauren Blakely as always but this one didn’t completely thrill me. It took me a while to get into Flynn and Sabrina’s story after their initial exciting meeting. However, the last couple of hours were really good. I found this to be less humourous than some of Blakely’s books and I’m okay with a more sincere approach sometimes. Even though this wasn’t rom-com territory, the dialogue was generally good.
I am a little fatigued with same duo narrating an ...more
Sabrina Granger's life is not going so well. She was left at the alter, lost her job, and is struggling to figure out how to pay her bills. She is a funny, creative, quirky, but guarded and anxious. Her ...more
