Billionaire Ian and reporter Lorali literally run into each other by chance, but after a brief encounter never expect to see each other again. What follows is a fun series of chance meetings that get hotter and hotter. Lorali was hurt and humiliated by a past boyfriend and doesn't want to get hurt again, so she is wary of relationships and men. But Ian is determined to spend more time with Lorali, and pulls out all the stops to pursue her. But will Ian's secrets and Lorali's past hurts push these two apart?
Coming to Hale is fun, romantic and lighthearted - but it is also really hot. I especially enjoyed Ian's attempts to woo Lorali, the art exhibition being my favourite scene. I liked Lorali, but Ian was the star of the show for me - he is ridiculously sexy and incredibly kind hearted, I loved him. I'm really looking forward to the next book, which is Alexa's story - she is fabulous, it should be a fun read. I really enjoyed this book, and give it five stars.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
Whew, the kindle is still cooling off from this short but insanely hot story. Ian is unbelievably sexy – a man who is rich, handsome and not afraid to voice his inner desires. Well, in unbelievably scorching inner monologues and texts anyway. Lorali has been hurt before and is understandably cautious though she is not immune to his charm. I love that this story switches from his and her points of view to really get a feel for what they are feeling. Or what… lol – Ian sure knows how to make use of a steamy shower! A great story with a happy ending and many likable characters I know we will get to see more of. I can’t wait!

This storylin is lke a lot of stories, but that is where the similarities end. This book is happy, and funny with Lorali not wanting to give Ian the time of day, and him having to really work at getting Lorali to notice him. Something that has never happened to him in his life, which makes him all the more interested in her. There were some really funny laugh out loud moments in this book, not to mention lots of really hot sex after Lorali and Ian got to know each other a little bit.
This book was well written and the characters were well defined and had lots of back ground with each other. I was surprised when I learned this was the authors first book. I've read books of authors with alot more books under their belts that weren't near as detailed, or the storyline near as put together, that really takes a lot of thought to get the characters and the story to flow so smoothly! This book was just a joy to sit down and read and immerse yourself into the story.Read more ›
There were some things that needed improvement to make the story stand out from the rest. The formality of the writing really hampered the flow of the story making it clunky at times. There were a handful of editing issues where words were missing and wrong words were used in inappropriate contexts, which always puts a wrench in my enjoyment because they make me stop and want to whip out a red pen to make corrections.
The characters’ personalities and development needed some work. I found Lorali’s strong opinions on the stereotypical behaviors of a billionaire were off putting. She doesn’t even give him a chance and her lack of self esteem in his presence is never backed up by past experiences. With a little more backstory to explain her opinions and attitude, she would have been a more likable character. The plot also sadly fell a little flat for me. It was pretty anticlimactic and Lorali’s behavior was very cringe worthy in my opinion.
The thing that the author really nailed, however, was the chemistry between Ian and Lorali. Their attraction was electric and their sex was “fan yourself while reading” hot. Though I could have done without the use of the word c*nt, who am I to say what Lorali’s character finds as appropriate dirty talk verbiage.
Overall I’d say this book wasn’t bad.Read more ›
