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 Review                           

Come Away with Me by Kristen Proby was a very sweet love story. I am talking rainbows, sunshine, puppies, cute little get the picture. With this being said, I honestly enjoyed this book. For me, it is nice to read a book with little angst every now and again. Sometimes I just need a lovely romance where boy meets girl, lots of hot and steamy sex ensues, they fall in love, get married, babies, marriage, old age....lalala. This book has no external drama or bad guy.

He leans down and gently presses his cheek to mine. "Thank you," he whispers.
"For what?" I whisper back.
"For being mine."

On a beautiful quiet morning, Natalie is out on the beach taking photos of the scenery when she is suddenly confronted by a gorgeous man enraged that she was taking his picture and demanding that she turn over her camera. Once the misunderstanding is cleared up, Luke realizes that Natalie has no idea that he is a famous actor (or was one) and she really was taking pictures of the scenery. Needless to say, the man becomes intrigued. Clearly surprised he apologizes profusely and asks her out to breakfast hoping to smooth over their rough start.

And so begins their relationship.

Luke is a hero to die for – he’s attentive, romantic, pretty nifty between the sheets and really quite devoted to Nat. He’s a beautiful, sexy, sweet, jealous control freak. Luke is...hands down...the one of the most romantic male characters I have stumbled upon in fiction. Some of the things he does for Natalie almost made me cry because they were so overwhelmingly sweet.

"I can't ever imagine my life without you. You are the center of my world, Nat. I want to love you, protect you, fight with you, make babies with you and spoil the shit out of you for the rest of my life."-Luke Williams

Nat has known her share of heartbreak and is slow to trust but she soon opens up to Luke and shares her darkest secrets with him and she is a worthy heroine – fiery, loyal and tenacious. She’s not going to take any crap from anyone, however rich they are and certainly puts Luke through his paces. Nat has her own career and her own money. She does not need Luke but it is truly a pleasure to watch her want Luke in her life. The author does a wonderful job telling Natalie's story; your heart will break for her and then build back up as Nat embraces life and moves forward. 

I've fallen in love with a beautiful, sexy, sweet, jealous control freak. Shit." ~Natalie

I loved Natalie's profession as a photographer, especially its potential to cause mayhem for Natalie and Luke. Besides the main characters, there's a great cast of supporting characters. The author developed Nat's best friend Jules and she used Luke's and Jules’ families throughout the story to further build your connection to the story. 

And oh my Lord  there are ever boat-loads of steamy sex scenes! Seriously, these guys can’t stop doing it! =) Everywhere! The wall, the bed, the bathroom, the shower, the limo, the airplane, the desk, the car, the beach… I’m sure I’m missing a few but this book basically goes from swoon to sex to swoon to sex to more swoon and more sex… mostly vanilla but all hot!

Their story is incredibly steamy and this is an erotic romance that has more sex scenes than you can shake a stick at! Nat has a collection of script tattoos all over her body in places that are hidden by her clothes and the scene where Luke slowly discovers them all is quite the sensual voyage of discovery!

Their story is stunning – two wounded souls finding salvation together, healing one another. Despite being very sexy, it’s also a beautiful romance and the epilogue is absolutely to die for as it’s told from Luke’s POV, after the whole novel is told from Nat’s. I recommend this book who enjoys a good romance with a healthy dose of sizzling hot sex.
