This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
From #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a swoony 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…
With all the heat, heart and humor readers have come to expect, this newest Lauren Blakely standalone will make you laugh, swoon and feel like you’re falling in love!
This book is the definiton of swoon..it’s romantic and sexy and sweet and delicious! A lovely forbidden love story of a single father falling for his daughter’s nanny. SWOON.
I fell in insta-love with this story that evoked romance, sweetness, humor, anticipation and just the right amount of delicious heat! The details that the author inserted into this book make the characters feel real and oh-so-relatable! Cannot get enough of this love tale that had me wanting to re-read it again instantly just to relive the story!
Sweet, Sexy and AWESOME
The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely
Lauren has once again provided a panty melting, sinfully sexy book to read. This latest installment was fun to read with her unique style of mixing a little bit of the characters we have come to love from Well Hung, Mr. O and Big Rock (if you have not read….SHAME ON YOU).
We got to revisit the scene from Well Hung where Wyatt meets Simon at the restaurant for the quote for the kitchen remodel which gives up Simon’s perspective. Truly awesome to read that scenes from Simon’s perspective.
Simon and Abby are sweet together and yes it is cliché (nanny and sexy dad). There is of course the ex-wife which we learn is also a cliché (slept with coworker) but is pretty cool about this situation. Personally by the time I got the middle of the book I wanted to shake them both with a Gibb’s (NCIS) slap to the back of the head. They were obviously very attached to each other and had formed a relationship that was not build on sex and they bonded over eaglets. I laughed, cringed and got angry at this book but was so engrossed I read it in one sitting. Hayden is a delight to read about and she is so funny with her statements as this story moves forward.
To sum up my favorite part of this book and why this story works.
Quote from Abby:
“I like working with kids. It’s real. No falseness. No pretense. That and I’ve always been at home with wild dogs. Three brothers and all”
I highly recommend this book and for Lauren I would love to see a follow-up on all of these books to know how they get their HEA.
