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.

Certified adorkable read!
Two words: pineapple math. I’ve definitely fallen in love with the sheer wit and geekiness that Lauren Blakely has shown and highlighted in her newest romance novel. To me, it only fired up the sexiness and adorableness that Flynn Parker already holds.
This isn’t your typical in-your-face kind of billionaire love story where the hero—who may or may not happen to be a douche—showers the heroine with all the lavish and most luxurious things in the world. No, this is the kind that’s sweet and light and just blissful. One that will make you want to have endless sighs of contentment and happiness. One with a hero who’s humble and passionate, and knows when he’s got a great thing going and never lets it go. A hero (aka The Duke) who worships his woman (aka The Angel) and makes her feel like she’s the luckiest and most loved person in the world.
Heart-melting, toe-curling and absolutely brain-stimulating, Come As You Are is just the fun and feel good romance I needed. I enjoyed this tale of two people from the opposite side of the tracks with a connection so deep and a chemistry so electrifying, you won’t be able to help but cheer them on. And as always, Lauren Blakely gives us the kind of funny, geeky and flirty banter that will make your heart flutter and give you tingles all over.
Clever and witty
Lauren has outdone herself with her leading man this time! I absolutely loved the clever dialogue and humor! I loved that they fell in love with their minds and not just due to looks. Both characters were well thought out and real. You cheered for them all the way through to the HEA!
As always Blakely delivers on another crushing hot romance. It’s sexy, fun and endlessly romantic!
