ONCE UPON A WILD FLING – A Lauren Blakely Review

109182

It’s a sweet and slow burn romance for our last Hart brother. Miles is the young hot, single father of the trio boy band and he’s had his eye on his best friend’s sister since they met. But he’s never wanted to cross the line and risk his friendship and their business. But the more he sees Roxy, the more he’s enamored with her. When he asks her to be his plus one to his high school reunion, it ends in a fiery kiss that he hopes can lead to more. But a new secret from Roxy puts on the brakes; she’s pregnant and on the way to single motherhood. Now Miles has a lot more to think about then just his desires.

Roxy hasn’t had the best luck with dating. Dud after awkward date, she’s resigned herself to finding her HEA by herself and becoming a single mother. But her mother warned her about “what ifs”, mainly what if she finds mister right after she’s already become a mommy-to-be? For once she has to admit her mother may be right when a night with Miles turns her fantasies to life. Now she has to risk it all and wish for more than just friends with benefits with the rock star dad.

Call me lame but I didn’t connect to well with this couple. I felt a little thrown into it in the beginning and was lost as to what was going on. Miles and Roxy seem ti be more acquaintances than friends but within a few weeks become madly in love with one another only from a few hours once a week? It didn’t feel believable to me. Where they are each smart and caring characters, i felt like they were smooshed together rather than finding their way to one another. I liked the chemistry they had but there just wasn’t enough of it, i wanted more longing, more glances and what if moments between them. It’s slow burn for sure and worth the wait but afterwards I felt it fizzle a bit. A little middle of pack for Blakely’s generally steamy and sassy reads, but an easy romance for those who don’t want any drama.

Then I learn exactly how risky we might be.

Excerpt OUAWFLBER.png

~ROXY
I find Miles behind a stage that has probably witnessed high school graduations, speeches, and musicals. His eyes take a leisurely stroll up and down my body. The way he stares, every zone in my body feels erogenous. Especially the boob zone, where he spends more time than usual.

When he slides his gaze up to my face, he looks hypnotized, then he shakes it off and brings me in for a hug. “So glad you’re here, Rox. Now go enjoy the show, and I’ll find you the second we’re done.”

Once it starts, I do enjoy the show. I never saw the Heartbreakers in concert when they were in their heyday. I’ve never been a concert person. Not that I’m opposed to music, but my mother set a precedent when I was in the eighth grade and my friends had a chance to see P!nk perform. I asked her if I could go, but the next day I had to take the prep school entrance exam, so the answer was no.

It’s a better use of your time to stay in and study,” she’d said.

That’s what I mostly did in high school, listening to music on the radio as I worked through math problems and wrote essays on the Vietnam War. The Heartbreakers kept me company that way. Later, when Miles became a solo artist, I’d find myself humming his tunes when I heard them play in Starbucks, or while riding the escalator at Bed Bath & Beyond.

I became a fan, but I’m not a fangirl like some of the others here tonight. I don’t just mean the women. The Heartbreakers have fanboys and fangirls, singing along, belting out tunes. They’re crowding the stage, and the security guards hired when the Heartbreakers were confirmed for the event are standing on alert, arms crossed. Fortunately, there are no bras or panties thrown at the stage, nor briefs or belts either. I’m glad Miles’s high school class is full of fans but not crazy groupies. The music reverberates in the gymnasium as the trio of gorgeous brothers sings love songs and fun songs and sexy songs while disco balls twirl from the ceiling and strobe lights flash.

When the set nears the end and they dive into one of Miles’s most popular solo tunes, a love song called “Today,” I swear his eyes find mine in the crowd as he sings about yesterdays and tomorrows. The way he sings turns the tingles into sparks, and I’m feeling it now for sure—that click, click, click of my heart, or maybe it’s my hormones.

Whatever it is, my breath comes faster as I dance.

When the show ends and the band thanks the crowd, that’s my cue to find him backstage. He’s sweaty, and I’ve never found sweat so sexy before. He drapes an arm around me, drops a kiss to my cheek, and says, “Hey, sexy bodyguard.”

My voice is a little breathier than I expect as I reply, “Reporting for duty.”

ONCE UPON A SURE THING – A Lauren Blakely Review & Excerpt Reveal

img_2011

Turning friendship to romance is never easy. Especially when you mix in business. Still heartbroken over no longer playing and touring with his brothers, Miller Hart fills his days with endless fun and music. Trying to find the freeing feeling he had onstage isn’t easy. His older brother had the blessing of another onstage persona and his younger brother still tours. As the middle child, Miller is stuck on which way to lean. When I brilliant idea is suggested and he goes on the search for the perfect female voice to match his.

Ally’s been a duo with her brother for as long as she can remember, but now that he’s moving to a new city, her chance to break out on her own has never been more obvious. Voice acting and singing are her two passions, but she’s tired of being seen as the sweet and innocent young voice of the YA generation. When Her best friend Miller announces his plan to find his first ever steamy female counterpart, a plan formulates. But can two friends, filled with laughter and light, go to the dark side? Business with pleasure is never a good idea but what happens when the business IS pleasure?

Blakely has her signature wit and charming lines for our second Hart brother. I love a good friends to lovers romance but I had a hard time connecting to Miller for some reason. Don’t get me wrong, he’s cute and funny and all around a fun guy but the slow burn was a bit too slow for me after the flash bang heat from his older brother in book 1. Now Ally I really liked, she’s take charge in a refreshing way. She takes her own strengths and turns them in to her newest allies. Don’t let my disconnect fool you; Miller and Ally have undeniable chemistry obvious from the start. The will they or won’t they is addicting. But it’ll take more than just two friends to make this romance have it’s HEA with a surprise happy twist!

It’s so easy being best friends with a gorgeous, talented, charming guy.

Said no woman ever. Except me.

My friendship with Miller is a sure thing — he’s my plus one, my emergency contact, and my shoulder to lean on. He’s also been by my side helping me raise one helluva awesome kid who’s the center of my world.

Nothing will change our easy breezy friendship. Until I have the bright idea to convince him to start a new band with me.

Trouble is, our sizzling chemistry in the recording studio is getting harder to ignore, no matter how risky it might be.

***

Sing sexy songs with the woman you’ve been lusting after? Get up close and personal as you croon to the woman you’ve wanted for years?

Piece of cake.
NOT.

Performing with the sweet, sassy and insanely wonderful Ally is like one gigantic obstacle course of challenges for my libido. And my libido is one sexy love song away from kissing her senseless and taking her home.

But, I’m not a serious kind of guy, and she’s not a one-night-stand kind of woman. If we cross the horizontal line, we might risk our sure thing and end up out of tune forever…

“Once Upon a Sure Thing is another must-read rom-com from Lauren Blakely. It’s just as heart-meltingly romantic, just as sinfully sexy, and just as achingly sweet as the first book in the Heartbreakers Series.” Yvette at Nose Stuck in a Book


Excerpt OUASTLB.png

~Miller~

She sings like a sinner. She sings like an angel. She sounds like whiskey and sugar. I’ve only ever known her for her church-bell voice, but now she’s a glorious mix of dirty and sweet, and I never knew she had it in her.

But I can’t marinate in this change-up. It’s showtime for me.

Grabbing the mic, I dive into my first line as I gaze into those blue eyes of my friend. Only I have to think of her as Honey, so I sing to the new woman about how I can’t do without her, how I need her now.

Something is in the air between us when we sing, something charged. Something that hasn’t been there before. Stage chemistry.

I move closer as if I’m drawn by the pull of gravity that I have no control over. We lock eyes and everyone else fades away. I’m still in shock that I’m loving singing a song with my best friend.

That’s what terrifies me. Especially since we sound good together, and we move well together.

Maybe we even look good together, as we belt out this hot-as-fuck duet, and for the first time we’re not butchering a holiday tune or destroying “Total Eclipse of the Heart” at karaoke. As she moves closer to me, we sing the final chorus like it’s going out of style, and when the music softens, I can’t resist. I finger a strand of her blonde wig, the coconut scent from her lotion floating into my nose.

Reluctantly, I let the hair fall.

Clapping rings loud in my ears.

Jackson, Miles, and Campbell give a standing O. Jackson holds up his phone, pointing to it, letting me know he caught it on video.

“Chemistry,” the guys all shout, practically in unison.

But I’m not supposed to have chemistry with my best friend.

That’s the problem.

“What the hell just happened here?” I whisper to Ally, befuddled.

Her mouth opens, and her eyes go wide, and she blurts out, “I have an appointment. I need to go.”

She takes off, leaving in her wake a trail of chemistry and coconut and confusion.


“This book was HOT. Sizzling. The build up, the banter, just everything about these two is amazing. The anticipation was killing me. And when they’re together? Holy moly wow, hot as hell!” Escape into a BookSite

ONCE UPON A REAL GOOD TIME – A Lauren Blakely Review & Excerpt Reveal

img_1930

Whoo! Get ready for one hot, sexy rom-com from the Queen herself! A whiz at trivia, Mackenzie normally isn’t distracted by the hot rocker on stage on their local bar. But he’s making eyes back at her and she can’t help but wonder if one night of wild might be worth it. A whirlwind one night stand turns into a few and Mackenzie is left in a dreamy state with her rocker. There’s just one slight hitch…he’s her son’s new music teacher and a prodigy. She’s not willing to sacrifice her son’s future for her own happiness. So they strike a deal to keep it civil….but can they keep their hands off each other?

Campbell’s seen thousands of beautiful women, a side effect of being a rockstar in your prime. But the cutie with a brain sitting in his local dive bar is driving him wild with hope. And he wants to turn one night into forever the more he talks and touches her. But when she puts on the brakes due to their new…shared interest…Campbell can’t push it. Weeks of friendship leads to stolen moments and steamy kisses. Now these two have to decide if their future is worth the risk.

I feel like Blakely did a reversed Cinderella story here! Campbell is playing in a band under a false name in the evenings and music teacher by day. Mackenzie comes in a presents a future he didn’t think he would get. A loving woman and mother and someone he has intense chemistry with. And there is chemistry in abundance; not only sexual but in their friendship and banter. Blakely has an uncanny ability to write conversations that flow and develop so fantastically between all of her characters no matter the situation. This whole romance is a case of will they or won’t they and Blakely reigns readers in and strings them along just long enough with little tastes to keep you guessing. Some more fun and almost care-free romance from Lauren is just the next read you need!


Are you ready to have a real good time?

What do you get when you mix a smoking hot one-night stand, a swoon worthy former rock star, and a quirky single mom ready to paint the town red?

✔ Campbell, a charming, clever, inked single dad and former rock star you’ll swoon for!

✔ Mackenzie, the kind of quirky, smart, loyal heroine you want to be besties with!

✔ A forbidden romance between two funny, caring single parents!

A little bit forbidden, a whole lot of dirty, and filled with everything in between, ONCE UPON A REAL GOOD TIME is a full-length standalone romance that’s full of heat, heart, humor and sexy times sure to keep you up all night.

That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star?

Turns out he’s my son’s new music teacher. Oops.

But I didn’t know that the night I met Campbell. All I knew was he played my body the same way he played a guitar — like he owned it.

My libido is still high-fiving me after being self-served for too many years, and we’re both ready for another night or two of fun, especially since we don’t just have chemistry in bed — we connect over everything.

That is, until I learn he’s the man who’ll be coming to my house twice a week to teach my son — the best music lessons money can buy.

Time to turn down the volume on our shenanigans. Only that’s easier said than done.

***

I can rock a guitar solo in front of thousands, I can write chart-topping tunes, and I can absolutely stop thinking about my student’s mother naked.

After all, I’m a single parent too, and I know what it’s like to put your kid first. That’s what I do every damn day.

Trouble is, now that I’ve had Mackenzie, it’s hard — and I do mean hard — to stop wanting her. Harder too when I get to know her, and learn she’s an awesome mom, a great friend, and, oh yeah, she happens to get along perfectly with my daughter.

All we have to do is set some rules. No dating, no nookie when the kids are around, and no one gets hurt.

It’s all working out beautifully. Until we start breaking the rules, one by one.

Making music with her in the bedroom is easy. But will we be more than just a real good time when the music stops?

“There is a reason Lauren Blakely is the queen of the romantic comedy. The chemistry and banter between her characters never ceases to charm me, and her stories just fill me up with that euphoric high that comes from reading a fantastic book.” – Sarah at Musings of the Modern Belle

Excerpt OUARGTLBE.png

Mackenzie

I’m not checking him out.

I am solely focused on answering the next trivia question. The game emcee spouts it out for the four teams vying for the prize at The Grouchy Owl bar. The prize being bragging rights.

The hostess clears her throat, brings the mic to her mouth, and asks the question: “Which Las Vegas hotel did the bachelor party stay at—”

I’m perched forward in the chair whispering the answer to my teammate—Caesars, Caesars, Caesars—so we can write it on the answer slip before the hostess even finishes.

“—in the 2009 moving The Hangover?”

“So easy,” I say to Roxy as she smacks my palm and mouths ringer while filling in the answer.

I’m not a ringer.

I was simply fed a steady diet of Trivial Pursuit, trivia books, and endless facts about the world as a kid.

That’s all.

Also, I love trivia. Trivia helped me through some tough times as an adult, and by tough, I mean anxiety-ridden, sleepless, and stressful. That kind of tough.

As the hostess flips her cards to the next question, the guy on stage—the one I’m not at all checking out—adjusts the amp for his guitar. The Grouchy Owl has a little bit of everything—from darts, to pub quizzes, to pool, to live music from local bands. It’s like a Vegas hotel right here in the West Village. Big Ike doesn’t want patrons to leave, so she makes sure the entertainment options are plentiful.

And if that handsome hottie stays on the stage, I won’t want to head home for a long, long time. Except that I’ll have to. I’m Cinderella, and I turn into a pumpkin in minutes.

But for now…Hello, nice view.

As the guy turns the knob on the amp, his brown hair flops over his eyes. He flicks it off his forehead with a quick snap then runs his fingers down the strings on his guitar. Those fingers fly.

I bet they’d fly other places too.

About UNZIPPED (Coming 10/30/2018):

Picture this – I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time.
We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I’m good and ready this time around. After all, if you’re going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops.

There’s only one little problem.

My college girlfriend isn’t the one who shows up when I play my “I’ll do anything to win you back” tune.

The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore. But she’ll help me win her back. Anything for romance, anything for a guy so willing to go big for love. And that’s what I want at first. Until I get to know my new “romance coach” and discover she’s funny, clever, and keeps me on my toes. And boy, do I ever need that.

Now I don’t want to win anyone else’s heart. I want the woman who’s been helping me all along.

Trouble is – she thinks I’m in love with someone else, and when we take off on a road trip, everything I think I know about women is about to be unzipped and turned inside out.

UNBREAK MY HEART – A Lauren Blakely Review, Excerpt Reveal & Giveaway

img_1744

If you think this is the typical feel-good romcom we’ve seen from Lauren Blakely, think again. Filled with heartbreak, angst, and a deeper meaning Unbreak My Heart breaks new barriers. Reeling from the loss of his beloved brother, Andrew is adrift. Misplaced anger and frequent trips down memory lane are filled with pain and longing. Through it all his first and last love comes back to town. Reminiscing with Holland brings back more painful memories of loss. But the chance to make new ones with her become an addiction that Andrew can’t shake.

Holland knows there’s no future between her and Andrew. With an ocean now between them, this short trip home feels like losing him all over again. What’s worse is trying to help him heal from the loss of his brother while dealing with the loss herself. But as new memories overlap old ones, neither of them are prepared for the clues Andrew’s brother left behind before his death. In a city that feels like home despite the 5000 mike difference, Andrew and Holland investigate his brothers last months in the city that introduced them.

This romance is unlike any other I’ve read. True to Blakely novels, the otherworldly descriptions of a Japan pull the reader into every scene. Fresh for readers is Blakely’s darker approach to romance. Not all heroes are happy, but all romances go the way you’d expect. A palate cleanser from the funny but still reminding readers of Blakely’s quick wit, the couples’ chemistry flies of every page. Prepare for a deeper meaning than just true love and second handed with this new romance!

Experience all the feels in this unforgettable, second chance, standalone romance from #1 New York Times bestseller Lauren Blakely!

I didn’t break her heart, and she didn’t break mine — we broke each other’s.

I never stopped loving her, but time and distance played its cruel role in ripping us apart three years ago when she moved halfway around the world. Now after all those endless miles away, she’s returned . . . but I’m not the guy I was before.

Beautiful, kind, and loving, she’s the same — my hope. The only one who can make a day better, who can make me feel again with one kiss, one touch, one night.

There’s so much I have to put back in place now that I’m alone and on my own. Things I never wanted at the age of twenty-five. When I receive an unexpected letter that might hold the clues to everything I desperately need to understand about my family, I’m sure I have to follow it. But that means leaving her once more.

She says she’ll come with me, and having her by my side will unbreak my heart . . . or destroy it.

That’s the chance I have to take.

“A beautiful, deeply affecting and unforgettable romance.” – USA Today’s Happily Ever After

Unbreak My Heart is easily the best book I’ve read this year. I know I can count on Lauren Blakely when it comes to unforgettable reads, but this one punched me in the heart and the soul. And I’ve never loved her writing more.” – Becca at Little Red Reading Hood

Excerpt UBMH LB.png

~Andrew~

She inches her hand across the counter just a little bit closer, and that hand, I want to grab it and hold on. I glance at our fingers, so close all it would take is one of us giving an inch.

Give. Take. Come. Stay.

I can feel the warmth from her hand. One stretch for us to reconnect, so I wait. Wait for her to put her hands on my face and press her lips against mine and kiss me like it’s been killing her not to.

But I can’t wait.

I break first, saying her name in a lonely, desperate rasp. “Holland.”

“Andrew.” Her voice is a whisper.

“Go with me,” I blurt out.

She blinks. “What?”

I shake my head.

Leaving the kitchen, I stalk to the living room, pacing like I can sort out what to do if I get just a few feet away from her.

She’s right behind me, her hand on my arm. “Say it again.”

I swivel around, and with her blue eyes on mine, her body close, I break to pieces. With her, my heart beats too fast, my blood pumps too quickly. I have no will to tell her to stop being so near to me but not near enough to make everything better.

“Say what again?” I ask, as if I’ve forgotten.

“Ask me,” she presses.

And she wins. She fucking wins. “Go with me. Come with me.”

She squeezes my arm. “Is that what you want?’

I cup her cheeks. She gasps. I’ve shocked her. Let’s shock her some more.

Her lips part, and she whispers my name. “Andrew.”

It’s like the stars are glowing. Like the sky is blazing at night. “You know what I want.”

About ONCE UPON A REAL GOOD TIME (Coming 9/10/2018):

That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star?

Turns out he’s my son’s new music teacher. Oops.

But I didn’t know that the night I met Campbell. All I knew was he played my body the same way he played a guitar — like he owned it.

My libido is still high-fiving me after being self-served for too many years, and we’re both ready for another night or two of fun, especially since we don’t just have chemistry in bed — we connect over everything.

That is, until I learn he’s the man who’ll be coming to my house twice a week to teach my son — the best music lessons money can buy.

Time to turn down the volume on our shenanigans. Only that’s easier said than done.

***

I can rock a guitar solo in front of thousands, I can write chart-topping tunes, and I can absolutely stop thinking about my student’s mother naked.

After all, I’m a single parent too, and I know what it’s like to put your kid first. That’s what I do every damn day.

Trouble is, now that I’ve had Mackenzie, it’s hard — and I do mean hard — to stop wanting her. Harder too when I get to know her, and learn she’s an awesome mom, a great friend, and, oh yeah, she happens to get along perfectly with my daughter.

All we have to do is set some rules. No dating, no nookie when the kids are around, and no one gets hurt.

It’s all working out beautifully. Until we start breaking the rules, one by one.

Making music with her in the bedroom is easy. But will we be more than just a real good time when the music stops?

TRDLB RI

A refreshing new sound to Lauren Blakely’s romcoms! Theo’s a man for hire; not anything dangerous or illegal, but the platonic fun kind. Dial-a-date, if you will. But this bad boy has a true wild side that’s cost him dearly. He’s kept his clients at a distance…until now. And she’s threatening everything.

April is quick-witted and tough as nails in life and in her art business. But when it comes to her family’s hopes of her moving back home…April can’t handle the pressure. Backed in to a corner and no where else to turn she hires Theo to be her “boyfriend” and out to rest the hope that she’s coming back. But as they navigate their “relationship” the lines blur between what’s for fun and what’s real. As more and more pieces of the puzzle that is Theo begin to come together, April has decide who’s the man and who’s the actor.

I LOVED this hero and heroine couple. Blakely’s always got a knack for making her couples chemistry fly off the page. But Theo’s improv mixed with April’s quick wit makes for some entertaining reading! Not only are these two funny, they’re steamy as hell! On fire and ready to burst I couldn’t wait for them to fall for each other. Knowing Theo’s truth had me wondering just how our heroine would handle the news. Filled with wonder and hope I couldn’t wait to turn each page to find out just what would happen next. Loved it all and can’t wait for more!


Sometimes you need to find a boyfriend-for-hire in the most unusual of places…

✮✮✮THE REAL DEAL is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

April Hamilton wants you to know she hasn’t been on GigsForHire since that time she sold her futon after college. She doesn’t even spend that much time online. And even if she did, she would not be looking up personal ads. But going home alone for her family’s summer reunion is an invitation for every single relative to butt into her personal life. She simply can’t handle another blind date with the butcher, the baker or the candlestick maker from her hometown. So when she finds the GigsforHire ad for a boyfriend-for-hire, she’s ready to pay to play.

Heading Home and Need a Buffer? I’m the REAL DEAL.

Theo Banks has been running from the past for years. He’s this close to finally settling all his debts, and one more job as a boyfriend-for-hire will do the trick. He’s no gigolo. Please. He’s something of an actor, and he knows how to slip into any role, including pretending to be April’s new beau — the bad boy with the heart of gold.

Even if it means sleeping in close quarters in that tiny little bed in her parents’ inn. Even if it means spinning tales of a romance that starts to feel all too true. What neither one of them counts on is that amid the egg toss, the arm wrestling, and a fierce game of Lawn Twister that has them tangled up together, they might be feeling the real deal.

She only wanted to show her family once and for all that she had no need to settle down.

He didn’t expect to have the time of his life at her parent’s home.

They didn’t plan on loving every single second of the game.

But can a masterful game of pretend result in true love?

“This book was yet another true LB masterpiece, romcom meet fake relationship meet romantic af = perfection!

~Elsa Gomes, Bookish Aurora~



“I loved every word on every page of this story. I can’t stop thinking about it and smiling like a dork. If you were to say #JustBecause or #DoYouRemember? I might just melt into a puddle on the floor, because I do remember…sigh. I want more Lauren Blakely, I’m addicted. The line forms here…”

~Rosa Sharon, iScream Books Blog~


Excerpt TRDLB

~THEO~

When I clock out and head for the park, anticipation runs through my veins like a good buzz on a night out. A reunion booking could be my way out of trouble. A five-day gig might bring me very close to the finish line.

Along the way, I stop in front of a dry cleaner, check my reflection in the plate-glass shop window, and reckon that I look the part April wants: dark jeans, motorcycle boots, and well-worn T-shirt that shows off the ink on my arms. Tribal bands, a sunburst, and a compass. I haven’t shaved in two days, and my stubble is rough. If she wanted clean-cut and business attire, I’d have covered up the tats with a crisp white shirt and a fine silk tie, then slid a blade across my jaw in the a.m. If she wanted sophisticated, I’d have given her the smooth, James Bond voice to boot. She could have me as a country boy, even, in a pair of steel-toed cowboy boots and with the drawl to match.

But April wants the guy who might have screwed her in the restroom of a bar.

She wants gravel and sandpaper, ink and danger, shades and leather.

The more you give someone what they want, the more you get in return.

When I reach the park, I head to the Terrace Bridge. She’s not here, but I’m early, since I like to get a read on any and every situation. I scan the surrounding area, noting the benches, the nearby tables, the cool placid water gurgling under the bridge. June in New York City can seduce you or it can trick you.

What it has in store today is anyone’s guess. I lean my hip against the stone railing, and I wait. Two minutes later, I spot a threesome walking in my direction. My heart thumps, and I groan quietly.

Why does the universe do this to me?

Blond curls, lips like a bow, a tight trim waist. Even from several yards away, I can tell she wears little makeup—she has that fresh-faced, rosy glow about her, and something innocent yet knowing in her expression. Like Lily James, whom I developed a wicked crush on when I watched her in her latest movie.

April’s not tiny, but she’s not towering either. Maybe five-three, five-four. A delicious dream. Which translates roughly to “just my type.” She wears tight jeans, a long black shirt that clings to her figure, and a huge silver necklace with a heart charm that dangles between her breasts.

As if I wouldn’t already be checking them out without the pendant between them.

I’ve had many clients. Keeping it platonic has never been an issue since I’ve never been attracted to a customer.

Until now.

Looks like I’ll be getting familiar with how to resist temptation.

PART-TIME LOVER – A Lauren Blakely Review, Excerpt Reveal & Giveaway

Swoon alert! Blakely’s latest destination romance is filled with charm, wit, and some passionate foreigners! A chance encounter in another country…a year ago Elise spotted the elusive Mad Naked Handstander of Copenhagen on a tour. On a dare the exchange words and agree to meet at a local bar for a date. Ah but the struggle of tourist mix-ups, Elise misses her chance and thinks she’ll nervous see the mysteriously sexy Viking again. But fate would have another say; when visiting her friend and her new man, who should be their compatriot but the daring Dane himself. A few wistful dates and a crazy notion (crazier than asking out the Mad Naked Handstander of Copenhagen) is laid at their feet.

Christian was heartbroken that his delightful flirt never showed for their date a year ago. So when fate puts her back into his path, he doesn’t hesitate to *ahem* give her the full monty…JK he doesn’t hold back on the charm AT ALL. Christian is smooth, funny, and an ostentatious flirt. I loved this lighthearted hero! Now for the challenge: in order to save his family’s company, and all the hard work his brother’s put in to it, he must marry. I did not think I’d be here for a marriage of convenience but that’s what you get and it could not be more fated!

One word comes to mind with Christian and Elise’s story: whirlwind. Its a whirlwind romance that took a year to land on solid ground and then a few weeks from there to hold steady. And Elise, my my it’s been sometime since I’ve found the HEROINE the charming creature of a romantic duo. But Elise is just that,the elusive lady of flavor; she’s filled with splendor, poetry, flirtatious and living life as she sees fit. It makes sense that a woman who searches to enjoy life’s pleasures would find a man just so daring. I’m so glad to have another classic romance from Blakely!

I’ll say this about Christian — he made one hell of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I’d seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do — I took his photo. I might have looked at the shot a few dozen times. Little did I know I’d meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I’d learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating. But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal — No strings. No expectations.

Our arrangement worked well enough until the day I needed a lot more from him…

***

Let me just say, this whole part-time lover thing was her idea. I’d have gone all-in from the start, but hey, when a gorgeous, brilliant woman invites you into her bed, and only her bed…well, I said yes.

But then, one hysterical phone call from my brother later, begging me to find myself a wife so grandfather’s business stays in the family, and I need a promotion with Elise. Turns out a full-time husband suits her needs too, and a temporary marriage of convenience ought to do the trick, until we can simply untie the knot…

As long as no one finds out…
As long as no one gets hurt…
As long as no one falls in love…

But our ending was one I never saw coming.

Excerpt PTL.png

~Christian~

A year ago

I stroll up the hilly yard toward my house, passing my brother, Erik, who stands close to the porch. “Did you scare them all away? Admit it—they cringed in terror, scary movie—style.”

I slash an arm through the air. “Whole boatload of them. Tears, shrieks of horror. Wailing.”

He cringes dramatically.

“Toss me a towel, will you? Or do you want to continue to admire your more fit and handsome younger brother?”

Erik scoffs and throws the towel over the porch railing, away from me.

I shrug. “I’ll just go inside, and you can check out my arse.”

“You can count on me never ever checking out your arse.”

I grab the handle on the sliding-glass door and head inside to one of my homes. You can’t beat a home on the water. But then, a flat in Paris is hard for me to say no to as well. Good thing I get to have both.

I grab the pair of boxer briefs I left on the couch and tug them on as Erik follows me inside.

“Seriously. How did it go?”

“Exceptionally well. I landed a date tonight.”

“Bastard. You’re not supposed to get dates when you flash the tourists, and especially not when your beloved brother is only in town with you for a few days.” Most of the time Erik’s in London, where we were raised.

“Jealous much?” I ask, heading for the fridge and pouring a glass of cold water.

Erik flexes a bicep, then another, posing like he’s Mr. Olympia. “I’ve scored plenty of dates with this fabulous physique. Just none lately.”

“That would be because you’re married, you tosser.”

He flashes a dimpled grin. He’s so ridiculously in love with his wife, it’s nearly disgusting. He could be the poster child for man-who-falls-arse-over-elbow-for-a-woman. That’s something I can’t say for all the men in my family.

“I’m like Grandfather, happy as a clam.”

I furrow my brow. “How does anyone know clams are happy? Is there a study on clam happiness? We all assume they’re rays of sunshine, but how do we know?”

He scratches his chin. “Good question.”

“I bet they aren’t happy at all. I bet they feel nothing. Is that what happiness should feel like? Nothing?”

He sighs. “Aren’t you philosophical today?”

“Maybe. It happens every now and then.” I take a drink of the water. “But what can you do? Sometimes deep thoughts stray into my brain, and I can’t help it.”

“Best to get them out of your head if you have a date tonight.”

“Perhaps she likes thinkers,” I suggest.

“So who is she? Did you exchange numbers on the dock? Or did you, I don’t know, play charades with your appendages swinging in the breeze?”

“Yes. I can do Morse code with my dick.”

“Such a useful skill,” he deadpans.

“We did it the old-fashioned way. Picked a spot to meet and a time.”

He raises his chin. “And why her? Of all the ladies on all the tours you’ve ever flashed, you haven’t asked one out before. Not that you’ve told me about anyway.”

I let my brain rewind to the petite brunette with the big sunglasses who ogled me unabashedly from the side of the boat. She was pretty, that much I could tell even from fifty feet away.

But pretty alone isn’t enough. Pretty is a dime a dozen. I’ve dated women who aren’t pretty, but are witty, clever, and keep me on my toes. I like those traits just as much. Perhaps more. But I’m not opposed to pretty either.

Obviously.

“She was bold. She called out bravo. She said it louder than anyone ever has.”

“So she knows how to read your Morse code.”

“She’s welcome to read Morse code on me anytime. Come to think of it, she can even treat me like I’m fruit at the market.”

Erik laughs. “In some countries, they don’t let you touch fruit at the market.”

I gesture to my body, from my chest down to my legs. “In the fine country of Christian Land, it’s highly encouraged for the bold brunettes to touch the fruit.”


“…a beautiful, compelling, alluring story of opening up your heart again to love and all the possibilities of it.” –Bookish Aurora
