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?

Come Away With Me is the first book in this wonderful series by Kristen Proby. Ever since coming across these characters in the  Boudreaux series, I was very intrigued by this family so I just had to pick up the first book and since it was available in the Romance Package at Audible, I was more than ready to listen to this story and boy did I LOVE this book so very much here. It was superb and fantastic and I fell so hard for these characters. And boy sometimes its just nice to read a Kristen Proby romance, because every time I read her I just know I will be for a lucky treat, where there is little drama and just a sweet love story that I can relax into and Come Away With Me was exactly what I needed because it left me happy and gooey inside.

So it starts off with a hitch when our heroine is walking along the beach, taking scenic photographs with her camera when suddenly this crazy but hot man comes at her, raging to stop taking photos of him and Natalie is more than a little confused why he would think that of her but she fights back to him. And before Natalie realizes it, they have resolved the little misunderstanding and sparks fly and they are having hot sex in the bedroom and revealing secrets to each other. Natalie confesses her reasons behind her tattoos, that she is a professional photographer of bedroom scenes and sensual nudes and the unveiling truth that the man she is falling in love with is an actor and not just any actor, but one of the most infamous men in the world. Natalie at first wonders why this incredibly sweet and sexy actor would see anything in her plump self.

Now Luke is one of those heroes, that you literally want to swoon over and one of those heroes you would want to marry because he is so loyal and true and sexy. I love how once he meets Natalie, he wants her forever. He doesn’t bat an eye in realizing he has found the “real” thing and fights for her in such a beautiful way and I fell in love with his ways of proving to Natalie how devoted he is to her and boy does he get mad when she judges herself negatively and I LOVE that.

I’ve fallen in love with a beautiful, sexy, sweet, jealous control freak. Shit.

We get an introduction to Natalie’s adopted family that has filled that empty void she felt when her folks passed. And then we get the whole meet Jake’s family, who are so down to earth and kind except for the really overprotective sister and boy does Natalie put her in her place. I do love a sweet heroine that can fight her own battles when needed.

I have to say that I am hooked on this author and my only complaint about this book was the narration. I like the voice well enough, but I really don’t care for the way she handles male voices, they just rub me wrong but everything else was pretty great. Also another downer to the story was I felt that there were too many sex scenes at times and that is the only aspect I would really change from this sweet romance I fell hard for!!

About Kristen Proby

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
