ARC Review – The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely

This story is absolutely exquisite! Lauren Blakely is at the top of her game with this Sexy One. ~ Afrodyt, Guilty Pleasures 

From NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely 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…

Review copy provided for an honest review


Simon Travers is a dead ringer for Chris Hemsworth. Everyone tells him so. That’s enough to purestdelightawardmake most readers swoon, but add on top of that the fact that he is a loving and attentive single dad, who’s also a successful businessman, and you’ve got a recipe for ovary detonation. If you’ve read Mister O, you remember Simon is a peripheral character and even in the few scenes he’s involved in, you get the sense that he is one sexy-assed guy you want to know more about. The more you get inside his head, the more there is to swoon over.

Abby Becker is the envy of all the other nannies in Manhattan because she gets to share the rarified air that is closest to Simon. Like any other red blooded Goddess, she appreciates the beauty of this man and also gives her all to taking great care of both him and his daughter.
It’s virtually impossible not to be attracted to Simon. That’s one of the best elements of this storyline. The irresistible attraction, magnetism and sensuality of these characters and how they handled the situation. Abby played her hand masterfully and has earned a place in my heroine hall of fame.

This story is absolutely exquisite! There is something so satisfying about reading a story where the main characters are so grounded and well adjusted. There’s a certain kind of maturity to this story that makes it incredibly romantic and sexy in all the right ways. I loved the pace of the story, the intimacy and the fact that there was little to no angst involved. The sexy times gave off heat like a blast furnace! Lauren Blakely is at the top of her game with this Sexy One.
