  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 . . .?

Tyler and Delaney had been dating in college and were both career and goal focused. One day Tyler calls it off and they had no contact for the next eight years. They meet at the park and as they say old habits die hard. 

Tyler has always regretted the way he treated Delaney. Now that he has a second chance he won't let her get away. I'm happy that Tyler was man enough to admit his mistakes and do what it took to get his woman back. The massage parlor part was one of the hottest, funniest and sweetest scenes I've read in a long time. After that part Tyler had me hook,line and sinker. 

Delaney has been burned twice by two men that she loved the most, one being her father and one being Tyler. With that being said she has abandonment and trust issues. Delaney was very guarded when Tyler came back into the picture. I liked that she was cautious and made Tyler earn her trust again. Delaney acted the same way I would have in her shoes. It's nice to have characters that you can relate to. Throughout the story Delaney gets some much needed closure and also grows as a person. 

I liked that the both of these characters were willing to look deep within themselves so they could make this relationship work the second time around. They both realized they each played a part in their initial demise. Seeing two characters grow throughout a book is another favorite thing of mine. 

Lauren Blakely is an author I've heard great things about but I've never read before until now. I really enjoyed this story. This is how you write a romantic comedy novel! I found myself laughing several times throughout this book. I finished this book in one sitting because the story and writing just flowed and sucked me right in! What I also loved about this book was that it was a second chance romance. Those are my favorites when done correctly and Lauren Blakely knocked it out of the park! I will definitely be checking out more books from this author!
