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 action 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.
Facts and fiction brought together to make a beautiful love story. A believable one. Love needs more than one element to make it come alive and survive.
Come as you are
Absolutely fabulous . A thoroughly great read and a great insight into New York City .
Another brilliant read
Lauren Blakey is one of my go to authors so there was no surprise that I signed up to read Come As You Are and this book did not disappoint, It was read in one sitting because I needed to see where Flynn and Sabrina’s journey took them.
What can I say about Flynn Parker, every woman wants him, everybody wants his funding but all he wants is to meet someone who wants him for him not for his money or his company and what better place than a masquerade ball to meet someone who doesn’t know the man behind the mask.
Sabrina Granger’s life is not going to plan, jilted at the alter, losing her job and she is struggling to get by but life will not get her down she is quirky and witty and a masquerade ball seems the perfect place to let her hair down and forget.
Life doesn’t always go to plan and Sabrina cannot believe the job offer from her dream company is to interview Flynn Parker the man she now knows is the man behind the mask ..........
Every book I read by this author gives me another insight into just how diverse her characters and stories are, she makes you feel part of the journey and she makes you feel a kinship with every character. Once again another brilliant five star read from the very talented Lauren Blakey.
