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 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, 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 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…

Sweet SEXY Humor Audiobook

After all, how do you resist the hot one…

I always know I am in for a good time when I listen to A Lauren Blakely novel. THE HOT ONE narrated by Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber is a second chance romance that will leave you smiling. A chance encounter in Central Park opens the door to a second chance and Tyler is determined to make the most of it. Sexy, fun and adorkable I devoured THE HOT ONE.

Caffeinated Reasons to grab your earbuds and devour The Hot One

If like me, you love second chance romances that are realistic, sweet and transforming you will love THE HOT ONE. From the reasons for the initial breakup to the renewed courtship dance Blakley had me smiling, swooning and laughing out loud. Blakley hooked me in Central Park and had me smiling at the way these two met again.

Dual perspectives deliver all the feels. We get inside both Delaney, and Tyler’s head offered us a deeper connection. Both characters are loveable, and it was fun hearing their thoughts, mainly Delaney’s as she tried to decide whether to trust Tyler. I love that both are successful and confident. Blakley skipped drama and miscommunication with this romance and instead gave us a book boyfriend to swoon over. The man groveled and laid his soul bare.

Deliciously witty banter, snark, and heat! Whether you are listening or reading, you will love the chemistry between Delaney and Tyler. It felt genuine, and when Blakley turns up the heat, you melt.

Courtship, six-toed cats, wigs, and heat fill the pages offering the reader an excellent escape. I loved seeing other characters from previous books. Both Tyler and Delaney are well grounded and have strong friendships. It was fun seeing them seek advice. I laughed as Tyler’s friends urged caution because the more I got to know Tyler the more, I knew he would throw caution to the wind.

Zachary Webber was a new to me narrator. Sebastian York usually narrates for Blakley, but Webber delivered.  I enjoyed his tone and will seek him out on other audios. Andi Arndt captures Delaney making this enjoyable from start to finish.

Believe in the magic of second chances and grab THE HOT ONE for your very own.

    This one does sound cute and light with a bit of sexy. Need to read more of her books- or maybe listen since they are good narrators.

    I wasn’t thinking this one was for me with that blurb, but you said that it felt realistic and he laid his soul bare. Hm… Totally rethinking it and I really might try this one! Brilly review!
