Review: The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely


A hot and sweet forbidden romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely...
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!

“Six foot three. Broad shoulders. Flat stomach. Trim waist. Square jawline. Hint of stubble. Dark blond hair. Light blue eyes. And a smile that makes you melt into a puddle of lust.”

I'm a sucker for single dads and cute kids. The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely did not disappoint at all!!! Simon was hot, funny, attentive and most importantly an excellent father to his daughter, Hayden. Abby has been their babysitter for a few months and she's always had a crush on him but wanted to keep it professional plus she has goals she wanted to achieve. That's one of the things I loved about Abby she was career oriented and wasn't looking for a hand out. Simon has had feelings for Abby as well but he didn't want to act on them since he was her employer. He also didn't want to hurt Hayden in the process as well. Another plus for Simon in my book. 

“Not because she struts in like she lives here. But because she owns me. She’s claimed a piece of my heart, and now I have the chance to touch her in the most intimate way.”

Eventually they give in and decide to see where things go. I really liked the build up between the two characters. Simon and Abby together was perfect. They knew each other very well, you could feel their chemistry, they had good banter with each other and nothing was forced. I found myself laughing out loud several times, smiling and swooning. Simon was just perfect in this book and I loved how he thought of Hayden and Abby in all his decision makings. 

I've read a few books with single fathers and Blakely nailed it with this one! There was no over the top drama. Everything that happened made perfect sense and Simon and Abby handle the situation like adults. The story flowed and I was so sad when it was done. I also treated myself to the audio narration and they did an excellent job and really brought the story to life, especially the sexy moments. Fans of single dads and romantic comedies will love this one!
