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…

Simon, Simon, my sexy, sweet and gentleman Simon *sigh*, you are pure perfection.
This has been on repeat in my head for two days now. Lauren Blakely has created one new story, sexy, funny and with an overdose of sweetness that got so deep into my heart and now owns me. Sorry Nick, Simon gave you a run for your money, but don’t worry, I still love you.
The Sexy One is the story of Simon, the single dad who hired Harper to make her magic act in his little girl’s birthday party in Mister O. He was introduced as a devoted parent and a very respectful guy. But that was just the peak of the iceberg, Simon is way much more than that:
He’s sweet, kind, smart, funny, and good. So damn good. And, for a bonus prize, add in that he’s an amazing father. That’s some sexy kryptonite right there.
“Some kryptonite” said Abby, I could say that too *sigh*. And… he was also very, very good looking:
Six foot three. Broad shoulders. Flat stomach. Trim waist. Square jawline. Hint of stubble. Dark blond hair. Light blue eyes. And a smile that makes you melt into a puddle of lust.
It’s been sometime since I put a face to my book boyfriends, but that description only has a name: JENSEN ACKLES. Ok, ok, Jensen doesn’t have blue eyes, and he isn’t 6’3” but I could only see Jensen when I was reading this book. *sigh*
Anyway, Simon… He hired a nanny thanks to Harper’s recommendation: Abby. She was so good with kids, she was patience, caring, so dedicated to her job(s) and with little Hayden she was the sweetest ever and she made the little girl so happy. And if Hayden was happy, Simon was happy and everything was good in his world.
But the truth was that Simon was so attracted to Abby that he was going crazy and for his luck, it was the same for her, but… Wanting someone the way they wanted each other, no, hold on, they didn’t want each other, they craved each other, it was something they couldn’t do, because he was her boss, she was his nanny and it wouldn’t be so good for any of them. Until… The temptation was bigger than the reason…
Our lips touch, and it’s like a world that was ordinary has now turned extraordinary.
*Day dreaming about Simon* Like I said, this is PERFECTION!! I don’t think it is necessary to say how much I loved this book, the romance, the funny and sexy parts. It even has a little drama, I was on the edge of my office chair, sneaky reading during my work hours because I couldn’t put it down. I loved how this book ended, the epilogue and extended epilogue were awesome and I wish I had another epilogue because I want more of this amazing couple.
All in all, The Sexy One is a perfection of a book, one more proof why Lauren is one of my #TopAuthors ever. Now you go and read it, I assure you’ll love it as much as I did.
