4 KINK Review 

Lauren Blakely offers a playful spin on forbidden romance between employer and employee aka parent vs nanny.  What’s better than a single dad?  A single dad who chooses to focus on family.

This one will be a satisfying read. It proves you don’t have to have sex written in every chapter to be a hot romance.  The Sexy One is guaranteed to melt your insides like a warm chocolate chip cookie.   

What do I love about The Sexy One? Abby and Simon’s inner monologue. It’s invigorating to read a romance when the characters exert so much energy denying the fixation they have with each other.  

The dual POV’s have a perfect butterfly effect. It makes your heart flutter each time you turn the page and read how they attempt to nip their desire in the bud.   It’s comical and quirky.    

Every so often you come across a moment of pure delight reading a true romance.  You read a romance where the characters try desperately to deny the craving and yearning to be together.   It’s like getting a peek behind the curtain in what happens when you refuse to act on your desires.  It’s the cold showers, the cotton underwear, the rattiest clothes ~ all in an effort to forget the pleasure the body wants.

Update your TBR list with The Sexy One and add a bit of sweet romance to your bookshelf.   It’s an addictive and sensuous read that seduces the heart.   Its sexy, modern and intoxicating with the perfect single dad.   


The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely ARC Review


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!

A swoony, forbidden standalone contemporary romance, THE SEXY ONE is a forbidden love story, the romantic tale of a single father falling head over heels for the smart, kind and beautiful nanny. Resistance is hard as these two fall deeply in love while she works in his home. But forbidden romances are fraught with their own challenges, and nothing comes easily for this couple. Told in dual POV, THE SEXY ONE is being called Lauren Blakely’s most romantic novel yet. THE SEXY ONE is swoony, sweet, hot and forbidden.

“A good old-fashioned love story with a forbidden twist.”
