"Come to Me" Book Review...

...I entered a giveaway and won a copy of the book "Come to Me" by Laverne Thompson. I read the description and couldn't wait to start reading it. I knew it would be the perfect book to read while in Florida and I was right. Too bad it took me less than a day to finish it because I still have two more full days in Florida plus a plane ride back!

Confirmed bachelor Baron Munro doesn't believe in love, much less love at first sight. But what about love at first sound? It wasn't until he heard Jasmine Sandler's voice that he realized his life was missing something.

Jasmine didn't know what to make of the man who haunted her days and invaded her nights. She knew the sound of his voice as intimately as she knew her own.

But...they've never actually met. Dare she take the risk of a lifetime?
As I started reading this book, it jumped right into Baron and Jasmine meeting. At first, I was like, what the heck, but then the major plot twists happens. I seriously could not put the book down! Jasmine moves to D.C. to be with Baron and ends up in a car accident leaving her with no memory and no hearing. She wakes up thinking that Baron's best friend is who she's with, not Baron. Laverne did an awesome job setting the scenes and making me feel what the characters did. I was rooting for Baron, hoping Jasmine could remember him. I loved the story and the concept, that you can fall in love with all five senses and if one sense fails, you have four other to trigger memories. I feel like the book could have been drawn out a bit longer to expand on the characters and plot but Laverne did a great job telling a story. Definitely a must read!
