The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely

This book was a short sexy read and just what I needed. I didn’t want to read anything with a big plot and deep characters, I just wanted a dose of good old-fashioned romance. The Sexy One is author Lauren Blakeley’s latest novel and one I highly recommend. Lauren is a romantic genius. The story is very well written, so much so I didn’t have any problems with trying to understand the characters or the world she build. I also found it impossible to put down which isn’t a bad thing when you are reading such a captivating novel.

The Sexy One tells the story of New York nanny, Abby, and the attraction she has for her boss, Simon. During the day Abby takes care of Simons 5-year-old daughter Hayden, taking her to the pool, the park or to the local museums. But at night, when she is all alone, Abby spends most of her time thinking about Simon. His 6ft 3 frame, his broad shoulders and his dark blonde hair that she would love nothing more than to run her fingers through. Abby has it bad, problem is that her attraction to Simon is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore. She can’t help but steal glances of her boss and imagine what it would be like to hold him close. If only he knew how she felt.


Simon adores everything about Abby. Her sweet smile, her smart mind and the way she is with his daughter. The more he gets to know her, the more he cares for her. The more time they spend together the more he realises he wants her. The problem is he doesn’t want to jeopardise the relationship Abby has with his daughter. Not only that, he doesn’t know how she feels about him.

Both Simon and Abby are deeply attracted to each other and watching how they tip toe around their feelings for each other was fun to read. They both think their attraction is one-sided and watching their relationship blossom was enjoyable to read. No matter how hard they try, being professional was simply too difficult – neither of them can fight fate. And when they do something about it, what unfolds is a hilarious yet completely adorable love affair neither of them will escape. The Sexy One is a fabulous romance. It is fun, flirty and the perfect book to read for anyone who enjoys a touch of magic and adventure.

Amazon Premise –

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…
