Come as You are is told in DPOV by Flynn an Sabrina and is a sweet and lighthearted read.
Flynn has it all (well almost all), he's got the looks, a great job and money, but what he doesn't have is the girl. Sabrina is on the verge of loosing what little she has left, she recently lost her job and her wedding was called off. They meet each other at a masquerade party and boy do the sparks fly!
"And hey, how awesome is it to meet someone who likes hot up-against-the wall sex as much as I do?"
Neither Flynn nor Sabrina know the other persons real identity and agree to meet, once they do things seem to be falling apart all over again for Sabrina. You see, she was recently hired to interview Flynn to see what makes him tick, yet she had no idea that her lover from last night was Flynn!
"The guy who texted you. The guy who has your panties. And, evidently the guy you're interviewing."
I loved this quick read by Lauren!
Come As You Are
I really enjoyed this fun and sexy read. Loved how Flynn and Sabrina met and hooked up at a masquerade party. Through texts, they flirted but still didn’t exchange names. But when they find out who they are? Can they resist each other? Can they work together? Loved how he let down his guard and realizes he can trust her and how connected they were. I highly recommend this book.
Come as you are is must have for any hopeless romantic at heart!
Come as you are is an enchanting, feel-good read!
Talk about plastering a smile on my face! This book just had me rocking a cheeky smile throughout the whole read. With that dynamic underpull of joy, it brought to the pages.
Plus with the current of heat which blazed through the scenes, I was wishing I could be Sabrina and Flynn at some points!
So from one hopeless romantic to another, let's just say, Come as you are is must have for any hopeless romantic at heart!

Truth be told, The Princess Bride is one of my all-time favorite movies. Now I want to see it again!

Come As You Are
What to say just loved Flynn and Sabrina from begin to end! Lauren never disappoints couldn’t put it down. Wasn’t just your normal love story you felt it with your ❤️❤️❤️!
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.
Charming and Sexy Cinderella Romance
Blakely deliver a charming romance, in this Cinderella story, with likable, good-hearted characters. It's a quick, easy, sexy and thoroughly enjoyable read. Sabrina Granger meets Flynn Parker at a masked costume party and, because of his disguise, doesn’t know that he is the famous, wealthy, tech entrepreneur. In fact, during their moment of passion, they don’t exchange names at all. The next day, Sabrina, a journalist, is given an assignment, to write a story on Flynn. Once their identities are known to the other, the romance becomes a forbidden one for this pair. They have a lot to overcome before they can find their HEA.
Come As You Are is another fabulous example of the brilliant storytelling of one of today’s most prolific writers of contemporary romance. Men might be from Mars and women from Venus but this author always celebrates the unique and delightful difference between the sexes which is why her books are an automatic must read for me. She specializes in witty banter, steamy sexual attraction and true heartfelt emotion that leaps right off the page and right into my romantic heart. Flynn and Sabrina are perfect for each other but in order to keep their professional integrity intact they have to deny their feelings and that proves to be more difficult as time goes by. Trust me, you will fall in love with these characters just as much as I did when I read their story in one sitting. I read an early copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary and unsolicited review are completely my own.
5 Pineapple Stars!
I absolutely LOVED this book! Every so often I like to read a book in which there's little to no drama or angst, and that's pretty much what I got with this story. I loved the chemistry between Flynn and Sabrina, it's pretty hot right from the start, even if Sabrina has no clue who her Stealth Startup really is. The banter and dialogue between them is fresh, sharp, witty, sexy and sweet. Flynn hasn't let success go to his head; he's actually pretty humble and laid back. Sabrina isn't necessarily looking for a relationship, she's got more pressing issues to deal with, first and foremost being her employment, or lack thereof. I enjoyed seeing how their feelings for each other evolve throughout the course of the story. A solid read that I highly recommend!
Come As Are
Loved Flynn’s nerdy confidence and appreciated his fears in relationships. Sabrina was so relatable she could easily be my best friend. This book was witty, hopeful and evoked feelings that were so real as I read the book. This book is one I will read again when I need a lift. Thanks Lauren for sharing your talent.
