Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - LK Rigel
"Weir's characters always step outside the mold. As more and more secrets are revealed, the threat of suicide hangs in the air, and though Cobain's chilling lyric is never quoted, it's always in the background: No, I don't have a gun...

But don't worry. Come As You Are delivers a sweet and lovely ending and left me hoping there will be a sequel for Rose, Molly's roommate and fellow waitress at the Mean Waitress Cafe."
Goodreads Top Reviewer - Jill Goodreads
"Come As You Are is a simply beautifully written, classy, engrossing read. Recommended for readers of new adult romances who enjoy well-written stories with substance."
Book Blogger - Being Anne
FIVE STARS "This isn’t any gentle little story – there’s drunkenness, drugs, sex, an attempted rape, thoughts of suicide. But there are also lovely touches of humour, her quirky friend Rose and her job at Mean Waitress, the saga of her car and living arrangements, the moments of joy in their relationship."

    4.5 strong stars from me!
    I absolutely adored this book. This was my first Theresa Weir novel and it won't be my last! Her writing is the perfect example of why I have fallen in love with New Adult novels. Molly has carried this nasty, gutwrenching secret with her all her life. Her father is a monster of the worst kind to her. But, to everyone else, he is a respectable professor who can do no wrong. Ugh. Karma sweeps right in and her father dies of a heartattack.

    Enter Ian. Oh my swooning heart. How can you not fall in love with him? New book boyfriend alert! He is her father's biological son. Oh, forgot to mention, Molly was adopted. So, even though at first it's kind of weird, it's not really because they aren't really related. Ian is everything Molly isn't. He's patient, he's kind, loving. He grounds her and it is beautiful.

    Ladies, don't pass this one up. It's a great NA book! I can't wait to read more from Theresa!

    Decent book

    It was okay but I felt that more could have been put into the ending. The story could have gone farther to tell what happens with Molly and Ian or what she did with all of her information. It was a good book with well thought out writing, but could have expanded a bit.

    Ending was not that great. I needed something more concrete, especially since there is not another book to go along with it
