I was really impressed by this debut novel from Marie James. It is the first book in the Hale series, but each book features a different couple and are standalones. Coming to Hale is a fun, sexy book that was a nice and easy read for me. The main characters were well drawn and likable, and there is a good cast of supporting characters too, which bodes well for future books in the series.

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.

Ian Hale had a glimpse of Lorali Bennett in a chance encounter at a laundromat of all places. That awkward, yet funny, moment sets the tone for this sexy, humorous read. Lorali is happy to start covering stories about the living as her work in the Lifestyles section of a local Denver paper starts off at two local social events. What were the odds that she would meet up again with the sexy stranger? Wary of the uber-attractive, businessman, Lorali couldn’t help but see where the attraction would take them. He was funny, flirty and could sext with the best of them. When a misunderstanding erupts into full-blown drama would their budding relationship survive the fallout?

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!

Lorali Bennett is a reporter for a Denver paper in the Lifestyle section after a move up from the obituary section. The lifestyle social reporter goes to all the charity events and high society things. So starts her social whirl. She is a beautiful woman who had a rough time after her boyfriend got arrested for selling drugs. She dumped him and is not looing for a man even years after high school and college. Ian Hale is is a billionaire that is too good too good lookig for his own good. He never sleeps with a woman more than once and is tired and bored with women who only want him for his social standing or his bank ballance. He is an all around good guy but doesn't spend time with many women or let them get to know him.
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.

How do you give a 5 star review to a book that deserves so much more? Coming to Hale is one of the best books I've read to date! Marie James will suck you in on the first page and leave you begging for more at the end. Clear your schedule, because once you start this book you won't stop until you finish it! Ian Hale is one of the hottest men I've read about and can't wait for more!

After seeing a lot of positive feedback for this debut novel, I couldn’t help but one-click this bad boy. There were some really great scenes in this book that gave me confidence that Marie James is coming into her own as a writer and I will definitely be looking out for her in the future. One scene in particular was fabulously done and very well imagined and still has me hot and bothered weeks after reading it (see the seduction in the art gallery…holy smokes!).

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.
