Come Away with Me by Kristen Proby (With Me in Seattle #1)

Book description from goodreads.com:

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?

My rating:

4 stars

My review:

So, I’ve had this little gem on my kindle for a while now, but have kept skipping over it.  Boy, am I glad I finally decided to read it!  This is a good book.  I love the concept of this book.  A girl, taking pictures on the beach at dawn, it verbally assaulted by a man insisting he gives him her camera.  Why?  Because he thinks she is taking his picture.  Why would he care?  Oh yeah, he’s a famous movie star, but she doesn’t recognize him.

This book has lots of fun and witty banter between Luke and Natalie.  We are also introduced to the Montgomery family, a kind of surrogate family to Natalie.  Jules Montgomery is her best friend, and her parents and her four brothers are the only family that Natalie has.  I really liked the Montgomery’s, as well as Luke’s family.  They all seemed very genuine and real, and I look forward to reading more about them in the upcoming books.

The relationship between Luke and Natalie moves pretty fast, but also feels like it works, right from the beginning.  They have a few hiccups and problems along the way, but overall, this book was well written, witty, and funny with amazingly interesting characters.

My recommendation:

Read it, and the rest of the series (not that I have yet).
