Pleasure to Read with Likeable Characters and a Straightforward Romance
FINAL DECISION: This book is light and relatively uncomplicated. Both main characters have some baggage but once they find one another the two don’t have any serious challenges to their relationship. But I enjoyed this light story which feels fresh in the way it is told with likeable characters.
THE STORY: Natalie Conner, a photographer, is accosted on the beach one morning while taking photos. An angry and gorgeous man is incensed thinking that she is taking photos of him. Luke Williams believes that Natalie is lying when she tells him that she isn’t taking photos of him and that she has no idea who he is. When he realizes that she is telling the truth, he is relieved to be treated as a normal person and begins a relationship with Natalie. But he is keeping secrets from her and the truth will come out.
OPINION: This book was recommended to me as a light contemporary and I got exactly as it was billed to me. Although both Natalie and Luke have baggage from their pasts, the truth is that once they find one another, their problems never seem to bad that they won’t be able to overcome them. This book is more plot that internal emotional angsty romance. I enjoyed the twists of the story and the characters are so likeable that the journey is fun and flirty.
The story is lovely if not deep. I enjoy having books that aren’t all deep and dark (even as I love those). By the time I was finished, I wanted to jump into the next book in the series.
WORTH MENTIONING: This book introduces characters who are featured in future books in the series.
CONNECTED BOOKS: COME AWAY WITH ME is the first book in the With Me in Seattle series.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
