She needed a football player to step up and be the star for a charity calendar. I needed a sharp and savvy publicist to manage a brand-new sponsorship deal. I scratched her back. She scratched mine. And oh hell, did Jillian ever drag her nails down my back on one hell of a hot night. Okay fine, it was several hot nights on the road.
Now we’re back in town and it’s time to set the play clock back to when we were simply player and publicist. Given the way the last few years have gone, I can’t risk this deal, so it's hands off for us once again. Trouble is, I want more than than just another night with her.
What’s a guy to do when he's always been most likely to score, but the woman he’s falling for is just out of bounds?
I don't date players.And I definitely don't sleep with players.And I absolutely don't fall for a certain player when I get to knowhim and learn he's more than just sexy -- he's clever, funny and has aheart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift.
But my job is at stake, and I can't afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I've already lost that game.
What's a girl to do when the clock is running out, but the man she's falling for is off limits?
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!
From the NYT Bestselling author of MISTER O, comes a hot and hilarious new standalone...Here’s what you need to know about me — I’m well-off, well-hung and quick with a joke. Women like a guy who makes them laugh—and I don’t mean at the size of his d*ck. No, they want their funny with a side of huge… not to mention loyal. I’ve got all that plus a big bank account, thanks to my booming construction business. Yup. I know how to use all my tools.
Enter Natalie. Hot, sexy, smart, and my new assistant. Which makes her totally off limits... Hey, I’m a good guy. Really. I do my best to stay far away from the kind of temptation she brings to work.
Until one night in Vegas… Yeah, you’ve heard this one before. Bad news on the business front, drowning our sorrows in a few too many Harvey Wallbangers, and then I’m banging her. In my hotel room. In her hotel room. Behind the Titanic slot machine at the Flamingo (don’t ask). And before I can make her say “Oh God right there YES!” one more time, we’re both saying yes—the big yes—at a roadside chapel in front of a guy in press-on sideburns and a shiny gold leisure suit.
But it turns out what happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas. And now, my dick doesn’t stay in my pants when she’s around. I try to resist. Honest. But the more we try to keep our hands to ourselves, the more we end up naked again, and the more time I want to spend with her fully clothed, too.
The question now is…do I take this woman to be my ex-wife?
Well Hung is a standalone romantic comedy, however if you have read both Big Rock and Mr O you will recognise the main protagonists as they played secondary characters in those books. You do not need to read them to enjoy Well Hung, but do as they are great reads as well.
Wyatt Hammer likes to see himself as a playboy. A skilled carpenter running a successful business, he has watched his twin brother and close friend fall in love. That’s not for him though, he is much too busy pleasing the ladies to focus on just one… or is he?
Natalie wants to become a Karate instructor full-time, but it isn’t that easy when you have bills to pay. Luckily her room-mates brother needed someone to organise the office for his carpentry business, and she is in her real element. She may kick arse when it comes to Karate, but organising is her thing. It’s just a shame her secret crush on Wyatt will stay just that. First rule of business; never sleep with your boss.
So when Wyatt and Natalie find themselves in Vegas following a business opportunity and with nothing else to do, they decide to do the full Vegas experience. So does what happen in Vegas stay in Vegas? Well I will leave that for you to find out.
I am seriously loving these books. Yes, they are standalones, but if you have read them all you will get suckered into their world that much more. Natalie, love her. A typical organiser, and a girl after my own heart. Her feelings for Wyatt are so real, but she respects him as a friend and boss, even if that could lead to her heart breaking. Wyatt, well I met him in Mr. O and he came across as a bit of a playboy and arse to be honest. This is more a case of him wanting to play that person though, at heart he is a big softie. Even if he is a little slow in recognising his true feelings.
Once again this is told from the male POV. Have to say, I love this. We get some glimpses into Natalie state of mind, but this is Wyatt’s show. You will laugh at his antics, want to slap a bit of reality into him and kick him up the arse more than once. He is a great character and I enjoyed taking this journey with him.
So once again Lauren Blakely has given me a romantic comedy that is fun, sexy and that has a man that makes mistakes in pursuit of an HEA he doesn’t even know he is missing. If you fancy a read that is light, funny and hot, which will also introduce you to some great characters along the way, Well Hung isn’t to be missed.
