From the NYT Bestselling author of MISTER O, comes a sexy new standalone romance…
Let me count the ways why falling into forbidden love is not my wisest move…1. She works with me every single day.Did I mention she's gorgeous, sweet, kind and smart?2. She works in my home.Playing with my five-year-old daughter. Teaching my little girl. Cooking for my princess. Which means…3. She's the nanny.And that makes her completely off-limits…But it doesn’t stop me from wanting her. All of her.
The other nannies in this city don't call him the Sexy One for nothing. My boss, the amazingly wonderful single father to the girl I take care of every day is ridiculously hot, like movie star levels with those arms, and those eyes, and that body. Not to mention, the way he dotes on his little girl melts me all over. But what really makes my knees weak are the times when his gaze lingers on me. In secret. When no one else is around.
I can't risk my job for a chance at something more…can I? But I don’t know how to resist him much longer either…

The Sexy One is a standalone romance, but anyone who has read Lauren Blakely’s recent releases will recognise the characters and a couple of cameo’s that appear.

Simon, oh Simon… be still my beating heart.

Simon is a 34 year old, single dad who is a very successful business investor. Having primary custody of his 5 year old daughter following his divorce, finding a Nanny that would work around his schedule and also be the perfect guardian for his daughter was always going to be a tall order… until Abby appeared. Now he just needs to make sure he ignores his attraction to her. Easier said than done.

Abby is a wiz at languages. To supplement her earnings from teaching part-time and to make sure she pays off the dreaded college loans, nannying is the perfect solution. Hayden is the sweetest little thing and her boss Simon, well, she has had some very unprofessional x-rated thoughts about him. So what happens when it appears the guy she has been crushing on, might just feel the same about her?

Will they remain professional? Or will their attraction sizzle and burn?

This book is called The Sexy One for a good reason; it is H.O.T.

I am seriously loving Lauren’s Blakely work at the moment. Yes, all her recent releases are standalones, but they are all linked in one way or another and it really works. We met both these characters in Mr. O, but who knew that their story would be this bloody good.

Simon, well just swoon. Who wouldn’t fall in love with a Chris Hemsworth lookalike who is the perfect Daddy? Well I certainly did. The chemistry between him and Abby really was electric, and because it is told in dual POV, you get every little bit of their story. The book has a bit of everything I like in a light-hearted romance. The story flowed and the characters were loveable. Equally sexy as it was funny, and without unnecessary drama. It was just a really enjoyable read and I look forward to the next few books to follow that’s for sure.


So if you need a book that will make you laugh and warm your heart, you need to read this book. Well done, Lauren, another fab read!
