    5 Adorkably Perfect Stars!

    I absolutely DEVOURED this book! It was the perfect amount of sweet and sexy, with a pinch of taboo for good measure. No one writes sexy romantic comedies like Lauren Blakely! Come As You Are will have you laughing, swooning, and grinning like a fool! 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 quirky. Both were intelligent, loyal, loving, and driven individuals. They both have some romantic baggage in their pasts, but it's clear from the moment these two meet that they just fit. The connection between them was jumping off the pages and I could not get enough of their sexy banter and adorable nerd speak. Yes, their meet cute wasn't exactly conventional and showcased their chemistry more anything (scorching hot by the way!), but it's the time afterwards that really exemplifies their incredible connection. Their amazing and off the beaten path adventures around New York City allows their relationship to organically grow and flourish. The build-up between these two was so delicious and was the perfect amount of will they/won't they. I also appreciated that there was no unnecessary angst or other man/woman drama, but rather just our two characters navigating this path together. I absolutely loved this one and my heart was so full as I turned the last page. Come As You Are is my new Lauren Blakely favorite! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Sexy and Swoony

    Five Key Takeaways from Come As You Are: 1. Flynn will have you swooning. 2. Sabrina will have you grinning. 3. Witty banter is hella hot foreplay. 4. Masquerade parties can be fun AND sexy. 5. Lauren Blakely has another hot, steamy, FUN book that is sure to be a bestseller. So it's no secret that Lauren Blakely is my favorite author. When I pick up one of her titles I know I'm going to laugh, probably cry and I'm definitely going to swoon. I definitely laughed, sighed and had a major swoonfest going on in Come As You Are. I adored Sabrina. She is one of my favorite female characters from this author. Sabrina is smart, sassy and fiercely loyal. I felt her struggle as she was stuck between the proverbial rock and hard place but I really appreciated how she handled the situation. I liked her sense of self, too. She knew what she wanted and worked hard for herself to get there. She is someone I liked, respected and would definitely want to hang out with. Flynn brought the swoon to this book for me. There was something just magnetic about him; I was drawn right into him. He's smart, witty and incredibly hot. He has some trust issues-which completely make sense-and I liked seeing him understand he could trust Sabrina. I really loved seeing him put himself out there for Sabrina. These two just about melted my kindle. From the moment they met the spark was there and it led to a flame that neither of them could put out. They tried, really they did, but that slow burn and simmer just never went away. Their sex was definitely hot and steamy. Have a fan nearby-you'll need it. But the connection between them was more than just sex. I loved every moment of them learning about one another and seeing how well they truly fit together. The writing in this book was phenomenal. I felt like I was in NYC every step of the way with Flynn and Sabrina. If you've never been to New York City you'll definitely feel like you have been to parts of it after reading this book. The supporting characters are fun and I personally love how this author sprinkles in characters from her past books at times. It's fun to sneak peeks back into those other character's lives for a moment. That being said, this is a standalone so if you haven't read Lauren Blakely books before (though what are you waiting for????) you'll be completely fine reading this book. I loved every moment of this book. I was completely charmed and captivated with this story. It's a unique storyline-fresh, fun and interesting. If I could give Come As You Are more than five stars I would-this book deserves it; it was the total book package for me. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it.

    A sweet romance

    A sweet romance from Lauren Blakely. The characters were well written and the New York City gems they visit are well woven into the story.

    I said it for his brother. I'll say it again for Flynn. Hooray for hot, successful nerds!! Especially one with a dominant streak. Holy hotness! *fans self* I loved Come as you Are!! As always Lauren Blakely brings the charm. The humor. The undeniable chemistry. She brings us characters that are so relatable yet so unlike anyone else. And, of course, she brings the heat. The forbidden element in Come As You Are is all kinds of delicious. Sabrina and Flynn share an insane connection right from the start. However, because they must work together on a project that will benefit both, they're forced to not act on their blooming feelings for one another. I loved loved loved the tension that builds as they spend more and more time together. I also love the little touches and comments they can't help but make. It felt like I was suffering right along with them. I wanted them together as much as they did. As I mentioned above, the characters are amazing. I love their quirkiness. Flynn and Sabrina are quick with a grammar joke, a verse of literature or fabulous wordplay. They love weird, kitschy things. Understand each others hopes and wishes. They're fun and flirty and just perfect. This book is a character driven book and Sabrina and Flynn absolutely shine. Flynn Parker rivals my favorite Blakely hero, Clay Nichols, in the dirty talking department. Oh man!! It was unexpected but very welcomed. Not to mention crazy hot. I will admit, an audible "dayuuum" escaped my mouth during Sabrina and Flynn's first intimate scenes. Yep, it was that good. In this book, Flynn and Sabrina set out to find "treasures" throughout the city. Locating all the obscured charm New York has to offer. The way Lauren Blakely describes a new place is majestic. She continues to add new items to my "places to visit" list. It's incredible. Lauren Blakely has never disappointed. If you're looking for a sweet, funny, sexy forbidden romance, I highly recommend Come As You Are.
