Review - Come As You Are by Theresa Weir

Blurb from Goodreads:
Molly Young has a secret. To keep it she holds the world at a distance. Behind her lies a trail of dumped boyfriends who came too close to discovering what no one can know. When her estranged father dies of an unexpected heart attack he leaves an even deeper secret, one tied to Molly's.

At the funeral repast Molly is unable to tolerate the shoulder-to-shoulder mourners and runs out the door and down the street to the nearest bar. Come dawn, with no memory of the past ten hours, she finds herself in bed with a beautiful stranger. She slips away before he wakes up, unaware of the role he's about to play in her life. Is he the one guy who can convince Molly to face her painful secret and become the person she's meant to be?
My Review:

 3/5 stars
Molly Young's father has just died and unlike the mourners that have gathered at her house she isn't sad. Finding the people-packed house too much, Molly runs away and later finds herself in a bar talking to a guy. She then wakes up in a hotel bed with him and leaves without waking him. But that isn't the last time Molly sees Ian because she meets him again hours later in the last place she would have expected.
 I found Molly and Ian easy to connect to but didn't like how quickly they became romantically involved. I enjoyed the writing style and plot and didn't see the bombshell that dropped just before the end coming at all.
 Overall this was a short but enjoyable read.
