Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Too much getting it on, not enough story"

    There was a lot of potential for this story but no two people can do it as much as Luke and Natalie. I wanted to like this book so much but I was having to skip ahead a lot. If you are into that kind of thing you might like the base story with it as it is cute. Since it was not my favorite I thought Natalie got her just desserts in the end.

    Story
    "Rugrats, Munchkins and Helium, Oh My!"
    What disappointed you about Come Away with Me?

    I couldn't finish listening to the audiobook. Chapter 11 was as far as I could go. The narrator sounded so young, not someone in their mid-20s. Listening to it felt icky. Chapter 2 was the worst. I thought she inhaled helium during the recording of Chapter 2.


    Has Come Away with Me turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, with a capital YES.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If they had a different narrator. The story may be okay, but the voice sounded like a sixth grader. That gave it a slimy quality.


    What character would you cut from Come Away with Me?

    I don't know and do not care.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a perfect example of finding the right voice for the character. The voices sounded so young; I tried slowing down the audio and it didn't help. Speeding it up sounded like Alvin and the Chipmunks. Terrible. The narrator should do kids voices or pretend or even teenagers, but nothing older.

    "Best narrator yet!"

    OK plot that is somewhat predictable but keeps your attention.
    Definitely X-Rated. NSFW
    This was the first novel I have heard J. Mack read. She blew me away. Probably the best performance I have listened to in almost 1000 books/tapes.
    I have rated others with a 5 star performance, she has raised the bar!

    "ugh"
    What disappointed you about Come Away with Me?

    It is so cheesy and monotonous. I stopped halfway through and am returning it. I have no interest in how it ends. Too many "baby"s. Too much repetitive sex with not much story in between. Just terrible, I thought.


    Has Come Away with Me turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes

    "Too sexually over the top or maybe too near bottom"
    What would have made Come Away with Me better?

    more real vocabulary and less profanity. I'm no prude. Sure didn't expect the "gutter" type lingo. I read alot and there are plenty of examples of steamy sexual encounters without relying on the F-word as verb and adjective.


    Has Come Away with Me turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Mack?

    no


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Come Away with Me?

    She's ok. Not "up there" with many others--Robin Miles; Kate Fleming --but she has to have the material to perform.!


    Any additional comments?

    Give me romance not smut.

    "really cheesey"

    this book was so obviously imitating RPatz stardom that it was pretty pathetic and frankly i can't figure out why except maybe a lack of imagination on the authors part, glad it veered away from the obvious and tried to make the male lead have his own story. i like sex as much as the next person but that's all this couple did, i mean how many different ways is there to describe it? Frankly it got a bit boring. and why in the epilog did the male lead finally get his own voice? still can't figure that one out. i didn't bother to listen to the 30 minutes of the next book in the series that was "free" as i don't intend on getting it.
    i wouldn't bother wasting your money or your credit.

    "Steamy and romantic"

    It had a perfect amount of both romantic and steamy elements. I enjoy how she captivates an audience with her novels.

    "Skipping this series..."

    Don't get me wrong, I love a good escape in a steamy romantic novel, but this on had a number of issues that made me want to skip the next books in the series:

    1) There was barely any conflict - I felt like it was a few hours of the characters "falling in love" and then a number of hours of how happy they are with the occasional lame, easily resolved fight sprinkled in.

    2) "Stupid jealous is kind of hot." ... really????

    3) Does it bug anyone else that every time they sat down for a meal/drinks they have a 5 minute conversation and all the sudden the meal is over or it's "3 hours later"?

    4) Same thing for the sex. Seemed like the formula was that as soon as Luke got it in they had about about 1 minute (and just one or two positions) before they would both climax together. And this was "the best sex of her life"... If this is meant to be realistic, I defy you to find any couple that climaxes together every time (and in so short a time). If it's meant to be a total fantasy, I would hope you would dream up a guy who could last at least 10 minutes and was a little more creative with his moves.

    In all, I left the book feeling like any woman would actually feel if they had sex the way it was described in this book... unfulfilled.

    "Wish I could get my money back!"

    This book is awful, straight up mommy porn if you like it. I got it on one of the sales before vacation and thought it sounded good. It is terrible, puts you to sleep during the regular parts and nasty porn and cussing throughout. Doesn't even desire one star. Don't waste your time.
