The Hot One
Lauren Blakely / February 28, 2017 / $10.99 print, $3.99 digital
At first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend's place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her back.
But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes 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. I might have let her slip through my fingers the last time, but no way will that happen twice.
He's the one who got away...
The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that, stripping 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, arrogant jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he's not...?
He's the one I've tried like hell to forget but just can't. Maybe I'm cursed to remember him. My money is on him being the same guy he always was, but what's the harm in giving him a week to prove he's a new man? I won't fall for him again.
But how do you resist the hot one...
Calling all reunion romance lovers. The Hot One is the book for you.
We've met both Tyler and Delaney in previous books. Tyler has been a recurring character in Lauren Blakely's other novels, and we met Delaney in The Only One.
I don't often say this but ... the blurb is misleading.
Tyler isn't so much a new man as the man he's always been. He's matured and undergone personal growth as humans are wont to do, but he was a good guy, and he still is a good guy. In a way, Delaney is the one who has to undergo the most change in The Hot One.
In the case of this romance, they're both hot. Ridiculously perfect, well established New Yorkers, living the dream. Tyler is a hotshot entertainment lawyer, and Delaney owns her own business in the city. They met at Brown, both thinking they'd be lawyers. (I know, I know, if you're at all in law as well, just ... imagine my expression right now. I read a book where it talks about the characters being pre-law. I had to suspend disbelief for some of the “law stuff” but it wasn't a deal breaker here.) Tyler obviously continued down that path, but Delaney became a massage therapist. They both excel in their fields. And speaking of hot, the book is too. Tyler and Delaney meshed sexually in college, and it's even more now.
