A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely that’ll make you swoon…

The moment I run into the woman I once loved madly, I’ve got one goal and one goal only–a second chance. The plan? Go big or go home.
Fine, getting into my birthday suit at my ex-girlfriend’s place of work might not seem like the best way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count–she always liked me best without any clothes on. And you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re fighting an uphill battle. 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?

5 Stars to The Hot One by Lauren Blakely.

Lauren Blakely has me addicted! I have loved every single one of her books that I had the pleasure of reading. Her heroes are amazing! Sexy as hell. Hot damn!

Tyler and Delaney…….

Tyler and Delaney were college sweethearts. In fact they were truly in love with each other. They planned out their futures together and couldn’t be happier.

Until it was over.

Tyler decided that he couldn’t afford to be distracted while pursuing his dreams of becoming a lawyer. So he broke up with Delaney, tearing her heart to shreds. Yeah…not his finest moment.

Fast forward eight years and a chance moment finds them seeing each other for the first time since their break up.

Tyler is speechless when he sees Delaney. He is shocked. But at the same time he is excited and hopeful. Tyler is determined to win her back. He knows that he hurt her badly. Tyler deeply regrets his callous decision to end things with Delaney. He wants a second chance desperately. Once he decides to win her back, he knows he’ll do anything and everything to make that happen.

Can I just say how much I loved Tyler? I loved watching him fight for Delaney. He was aggressive in his pursuit, however he was so sweet and romantic at the same time. Tyler is totally swoon-worthy and the truth is…Delaney never had a chance.

As for Delaney, I’m glad she didn’t make things easy for Tyler. She had every right to be angry with him as well as being wary of trusting him once again with her heart. I usually enjoy the antics of a groveling hero but I found myself forgiving Tyler quickly. I could not help it. He was just too sweet, too sexy, and over the top romantic. Most importantly, he knew he was wrong and he regretted hurting and losing her. Tyler always put Delaney’s feelings first. He understood her hesitancy and was a gentleman as he pursued her. Tyler did not make it easy for Delaney to resist. Simply put, he was so lovable.

There were a lot of fun and witty moments in this book. I read with a constant goofy grin on my face. My heart was so full for Tyler and Delaney. I was very happy with their ending. Or should I say their ‘beginning?’

Lauren Blakely’s characters are so lovable. Her heroines are sassy, intelligent and headstrong. Her heroes are imperfect and perfect at the same time. Not to mention…they are strong, fit and sexy!
