Romantics of the world, unite, for this is a perfect book for you! K. G. Fletcher has given us a story that mixes the beautiful with the mundane, and shows that there is more to the launch of a line than fragrance bottles and the right idea. With compelling characters and a plot that keeps you on your toes, “The Nearness of You” is a phenomenal read from start to finish. I also encourage you to be prepared to be transported to the heart of Atlanta, GA as you cheer on the protagonists. Never have I seen such attention to the detail of the city, and being from Georgia, it warms my heart to see it in the spotlight.

The Nearness of You: A British celebrity standalone, love-at-first-sight romance is a feel-good romance by K.G Fletcher.

David falls for Lauren Rose the minute he sees her and hears her beautiful singing voice.
Lauren Rose is a teacher by day and a lounge singer by night, a million miles away from David’s supermodel lifestyle.
This is my first time reading anything by this author, and I absolutely loved it. The characters sparkled, they were so endearing and the chemistry between them brought this story to life. It had all of my favourite things, and just enough drama to keep me turning the pages.
I would definitely recommend this story.

I loved this sweet romance! The characters were captivating and dynamic, and their relationship was full of chemistry and tension. It was easy to keep turning the pages because I fell in love with the characters. The writing flows so well and the story was evenly paced, although I found the ending a bit rushed. I also loved the way music and songs were featured in the story, as a lover of old jazz standards. Lovely read.

As a first time reader of K.G. Fletcher, I am happy that The Nearness of You was the book I read. This book is a bewitching romance story between David Randle, a British supermodel on holiday to attend his sister’s wedding, and Lauren Rose, a lounge singer with dreams of making it big. Add in a dastardly assistant with not-so-nice intentions for some great angst, some great locations, and meddling family and you have yourself a fairy tale with a modern twist. Ms. Fletcher does a wonderful job of keeping the reader entertained and engaged throughout the book. The off-the-charts chemistry between David and Lauren, the wholesomeness and down-to-earth personalities, and fun-loving sub-characters makes the story a very enjoyable read. A wonderful touch that Ms. Fletcher adds, is a playlist of music for the story (which can be found in the back of the book). This very much enhanced the story taking it from merely romantic to whimsical and enchanting. The music also lends a lyrical quality to the story that helps the story flow seamlessly. If you are looking for a book that is TRUE ROMANCE then this is the one you should definitely pick up. Ms. Fletcher has gained another fan of her books and I am looking forward to diving into her other tales!

Lauren Rose is a lounge singer by night and a teacher of theatre students by day, she is a woman with a beautiful voice and a personality to match, she sings in the lounge of the St Regis hotel with her friend Miles on the baby grand and has people who regularly go to hear her and she sings the song that they request and it always turns her mood to the positive and this friday night is no different, that is until she bumps into David Randle on the way back from the bathroom and becomes completely star struck, after all, he is a male model and has the most gorgeous face she has ever seen, as they have a drink during Lauren’s break, she manages to form words and converse with him, but still remains utterly star struck until her break is over and she and Miles head back to the stage for the end of their set for the night, including the request from her regular and a special song for David. Afterwards, he asks if he can but her a proper drink and she agrees, they end up drinking and talking into the early hours of the morning about everything, including why he is in Atlanta in the first place and when he asks to see her again for breakfast, she cannot believe her luck and agrees to meet him.

That night, she cannot sleep from thinking about the night and the breakfast date to come, so she gives up and gets some coffee on the go, picking out an outfit, she gets ready and is at the hotel a few minutes earlier than planned, this impresses David and they walk to a local diner which serves the breakfast that David wants to try, it is a lot different to where he normally goes, but is more than happy to give it a try. Like the night before, the conversation flows and they talk more about their travels, plus more about his family and his sisters wedding and as they walk back to the hotel and she feels like their time together is coming to an end, he surprises her by asking for a kiss and wanting to see her again.

This is a continuing theme when he asks her to attend his sister’s wedding and be his date and as they spend more time together and Lauren meets his sister and her now husband, they all get on like a house on fire and when David’s sister asks her to sing a song for her with the wedding band, she agrees, this is when she really shows off her voice and gets an offer for a job from the band leader at the same time. As the rest of the evening passes and they talk more in David’s hotel suite, including about the upcoming campaign and release of his own cologne, Drive, they can’t keep their hands off each other and they feel like they are meant for each other, but when a trip to New York to see David at work happens, his assistant starts to become a problem and tries to keep them apart, so when things go wrong and it is a choice between their happiness and David’s career, it is a decision neither of them want to make, but have to.

This is a whirlwind romance with a dash of celebrity while also talking about the differences between fame and obscurity, but will this tear the two apart or make them stronger? The only way to find out is to read the book.

The Nearness of You by KG Fletcher was such a great read! I loved the story and the characters so much. The chemistry between Lauren and David just jumped out of the pages at me and I couldn’t put the book down. I have to say, the last several chapters were completely my favorite of the book. So much drama and suspense, I had to hurry through the pages to find out what happened! And it had such a great ending! Fletcher really is a talented writer, for sure. I can’t wait to read more from her!

The Nearness of You by K.G. Fletcher is a wonderful contemporary romance story. There is one thing that KG knows and that is how to write romance that is easy to lose yourself in and become invested in it. This story is my favourite to date. The story was beautifully written and very emotive. A chance meeting between a lounge singer and a supermodel, Lauren and David begins one of the best love stories. But the road to love is not always smooth especially when there are others who think they are worthy of that love and make life a misery.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a very sweet romance. It was an enjoyable read with characters that were well written and you can’t help but fall in love with them. This book gives you all the feelings from excitement and love, to tears and sadness. There are also twist and turns which keep you guessing which I liked as its not a straight forward boy meets girl and falls in love.

Lauren is an aspiring singer on the local bars. She wonders if she will ever get her big break. What she doesn’t expect is to bump into a famous model during one of her shows.

David is in town for his sisters wedding when he hears Lauren sing and instantly falls for her. After spending time together he realises he needs to be with her so asked her to come with him for his big launch.

But not everyone is happy for David and Lauren. Will their spark grow into a fire? Will Lauren be too much of a distraction for David? Will their careers suffer for their romance or will they make it work?

I would recommend this book to any looking for a quick, fun standalone romance where opposites attract through love at first sight. I was quickly captivated with Lauren and David as their world of music and fashion was brought to life. I enjoyed the flow of KG Fletcher’s writing which easily made me gasp at times as well as laugh and swoon.
