The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely

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...

With all the heat, heart and humor readers have come to expect, this newest standalone will make you laugh, swoon and feel like you're falling in love!

5 out of 5 stars

I am so in love with this sweet yet very sexy story. It was so swoony with all these wonderfully touching moments. It was a butterflies-in-your-tummy inducing story. I loved it!

Everything was so engaging and light, it was an entertaining and fun read. I loved the mix of the sexy and sweet (and seriously with the sexy, I think my ovaries might have exploded thanks to Simon). I thought both Simon and Abby where great, likable characters with just the right amount of depth. Simon with his daughter was beyond adorable. The writing was great, I was totally pulled in and smiling big time. It had such a good feel to it. It was a quick read with a steady pace and nice build. I was invested the entire time, just excited while reading. It made me all kinds of happy!

I loved Simon and Abby's flirting, it was subtle and then grew from there. I thought it had a great build and I was filled with so much anticipation. I adored that longing and need they had for one another from afar and how it all came together. Who knew a kiss could be so hot and steamy because wow! I think my eyes just about popped out of my head reading that scene. I was just excited while reading and eager for them to get together. I loved the ease of their relationship and how everything just flowed so perfectly together.

This is not a taxing read it all. It's pure, sweet bliss. It was just an excellent story that left me feeling extremely happy! This is just the thing you need after an intense read.

Seriously the theme here is fun, sweet, and sexy! I wrote those words a ridiculous amount of times in my notes. The perfect feel good story!
