The Whole Latte

Come as you Are by Lauren Blakely is the perfect book if you love a billionaire romance that’s full of witty dialogue, with strong and sassy characters, and a story that creatively infuses a few genres, then this book is for you! 

Flynn  Parker is tired of women dropping themselves at his feet. Literally. They will stop at nothing to win the billionaire. But hey, there is more to this sexy, nerdy man than just his bank account. He actually wants someone to appreciate him for who he is, not what he has. When he encounters a woman at a masquerade ball she will leave him longing for more. Is it possible she doesn’t know who he is? Could he have found the one?

Sabrina Granger is a woman who will protect those she loves at all cost. When her mother walks out on her, she will learn that the only person she can count on is her brother. When a trip down the isle is suddenly called off, Sabrina will  have to find the courage to move on while doubting what went wrong. Will she learn to open up and trust again? When she meets a masked man, he will unlock her hidden desires and push her to be courageous. Will she welcome the reveal of his true identity? Will it destroy her future?

When a buissness opportunity threatens to expose their connection, Sabrina and Flynn will need to decide what matters more, business or pleasure. Can they come to a mutual decision? If they do, they just might discover that sometimes wishes do come true and fairy tales aren’t just bedtime stories.

Don’t miss this sexy romantic comedy that is sexy, spicy, and makes a perfect bookcation!

The door crawls shut.

Inch by inch.

A slow-mo door.

I have no patience for its theatrics. I kick it shut, eager for the next part of the evening to begin.

Her laughter sounds across the library and echoes off its dark wood shelves bursting with books. A leather couch takes center stage, flanked by a mahogany table.

“Are you in a rush to read something?” she asks coyly.

Her voice turns me on. It’s like bourbon and honey. A little throaty and husky, but with sweet undertones. Funny, how when you can’t see someone’s face—at least not all of it—your other senses heighten. Your ears work harder, homing in on the voice, or you zoom in on the eyes. Hers are warm hazel with flecks of bronze and green.

“Why, yes, I was looking for a particular book.” I stroll to the bookshelf along one wall, running my fingers across the spines, from old hardcovers like Tess of the d’Urbervilles to modern thrillers from the likes of Clive Cussler to non-fiction reads on the habits of highly effective people. “I thought if you wanted to go to the library you’d want to read. Naturally.”

“Of course. Read me a story. A bedtime story.” She leans against the wall next to a writing desk with a green lamp on it, the kind that has one of those chains you pull down to turn it on. She goes with the moment, and this night seems like role-play with her. I half want to understand who she is. But in a way, I’d rather experience everything she seems to want to give. Her body. Her mouth. Her mind. Whoever she is here in the library is as real as whoever she is behind the mask. My mission is to make sure she gets everything she wants.

I grab the nearest book and crack it open. It’s a James Patterson. “Once upon a time, there was a woman at a party who wanted to be kissed,” I say, walking to her, the pages open.

The angel raises her hands to her hair and sweeps off the headband that holds her halo. She tosses it to the desk. “That sounds like a very scintillating tale.”
