Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.
Luke Williams just wants the world to give him a break, so seeing yet another camera aimed at his face has him ready to pounce on the beauty behind the lens. When he finds out she has no idea who he is, he's intrigued and more than a little tempted by her. Natalie has a body made for sex, a sassy mouth and Luke can’t get enough of her, but he’s not ready to tell her who he really his.
Natalie is a no nonsense girl who doesn’t do well with lies and secrets. What will happen to this new relationship when she discovers what Luke’s hiding?
Ugh. I am so over medicore books! It’s like I am a mediocre book magnet right now. We start off with Natalie being all “La la la, I’m taking pictures of the scenery, la la la, don’t mind me.” And then Luke comes out of nowhere and was like “Bitch, don’t take pictures of me. Don’t you know I’m loco? I’ll cut you!” Natalie goes “Stranger danger!!!! Run!!!! Oh wait, your cute.” Luke goes “I know, duh. That’s why your taking pictures of me. Stop it or…or…or I’ll cut you so hard.” Natalie’s like “Dude, totally not taking pictures of you, you hot psychopath!” Then Luke goes “Oh, okay, lets have lunch. Sex to follow.” And Natalie says, “Okay!” probably in a valley girl voice.
Okay, that’s not what they really said but that’s how it felt. I should have stopped there. First off, this is not a horrible read really, I’m just so tired of bleh books.
I am writing this review in a high state of annoyance because I’m dying for a book to wow me or make me feeling something and I got zilch with Come Away With Me!
The dialogue was cheesy. The plot was thin, not much to it at all. I didn’t care what happened to the characters. At least we get good sex scenes, but beyond that I have no interest in continuing this series.
Bwahahahaha! I’m sorry this one didn’t work for you, Jennifer, but I love the review. 😉 I read this waaaay back when it released. I can’t remember how I rated it but I think maybe 3.5? Anyway, there was a lot of hype surrounding it and I didn’t think it lived up to its hype. But I kinda think Proby has improved in her craft…
Here’s to you finding a stellar read!!!
Oh it’s too bad that it wasn’t more…
Melissa (Books and Things)
Aw sorry this one didn’t work out for you. I’d hate the cheesy dialog too.
Sorry this book didn’t have that something special. Better luck next time.
Kristin (Book Sniffers Anonymous)
I hate when that happens. It seems like once you start down the slippery slope of “Meh”, it’s hard to get out of. I hope you are able to find a good book soon.
