THE HOT ONE - cover


A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

Ever notice that sometimes a guy will do something really stupid, like let the love of his life slip through his fingers?

Yeah. I’m that guy. But the instant I run into her again I’ve got one goal and one goal only—a second chance. The plan? Go big or go home.

Fine, at first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend’s place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I’m prepared to fight hard for her. Because sometimes you need a second chance at first love.

He’s the one who got away . . .

The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that at my job, showing off his rock-hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he’s not . . .? I’ve tried like hell to forget him, but maybe I’m cursed to remember the guy I fell madly in love with eight years ago. Lord knows I’m not over him, so what’s the harm in giving him a week to prove he’s changed in the ways that matter?

After all, how do you resist the hot one . . .?

Tracey’s Review

Look, you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re negotiating. You need to know what your opponent wants. And sometimes you need to give them what they can’t resist.

When Tyler Nichols ended things with Delaney Stewart all those years ago, well, he could have done it with more compassion, more regard, more finesse. But things ended badly, and now, eight years later, Delaney’s pretty sure that she doesn’t need any Tyler in her life. No matter that they have rapport like gangbusters, that she can’t stop thinking about him, and that he still totally just gets her. Because what Delaney needs from Tyler is more than just good conversation, steamy sexy times, or a great sense of humor. Delaney needs to know that Tyler is really, really sorry for the way that he left things way back when. And when “Bungee Jump Tyler” sets his mind to something, he goes all in, so things are about to get really interesting.

When it comes to me and books, there are certain inarguable truths. One of them is that, if Lauren Blakely wrote it, I’m going to love it. Doesn’t matter the sub-genre, if it’s hers, I’m all in. THE HOT ONE, Lauren’t latest offering in her rom-com series of books, promised to be no different, and it did not disappoint.

Tyler Nichols has been around for a while, making appearances in several of Lauren’s books. I know these things about Tyler: he’s persistent, he’s driven, and he goes full bore to get what he wants. When what he wants is the one that he let slip away, but she’s not biting, Tyler is all ‘game on’ mindset. Delaney, goodness knows, doesn’t stand a chance.

Like all of Lauren’s lady characters, I’ve got mad love for Delaney. She’s living the life she was supposed to live, thanks in no small part to the two men in her life that disappointed her. Much better suited to life as a massage therapist than a shark in a suit, Delaney’s pretty happy with the way things are. But when Tyler reenters her life, Delaney’s in for the pursuit to end all pursuits, so thank goodness she’s got good friends and Nirvana to keep things on an even keel.

I’m going to be honest, there isn’t a book of Lauren’s that isn’t going to do it for me. She’s hit pay dirt once again with THE HOT ONE, because it’s quirky, funny, sexy, and I just couldn’t put it down. No question then, that this is another 5+-star read for me, and that I’d happily recommend it to any fan of a fantastic romantic comedy. And, hey, Lauren, about that new guy at Nichols and Nichols: I’m definitely going to need to see more of Oliver Edgecomb, just saying…

By the way, nice shout-out to Tawna Fenske, L.B. …And, now I want a polydactyl cat… 😉
