Description

From #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a swoony 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…

With all the heat, heart and humor readers have come to expect, this newest Lauren Blakely standalone will make you laugh, swoon and feel like you’re falling in love!

    It was free and I wanted to read something from this author. The storyline and characters I liked. The excessive amount of foul language I didn’t. I’m not a prude but it didn’t seem necessary nor did it jive with the image of the characters for me.
  • Wow!

    Wow. I’m more of a suspense/ mystery reader myself but I decided to read this book for a change. I loved it so much I could not put it down until I was finished !! Amazing story, sexy details and great characters. The whole story line was awesome and I cannot wait to read more of her books.

    A bit of fluff! No substance to it. The characters were unbelievable. A total waste of time reading

    By Great super duper book!!!
    The book wasn’t that unpredictable. There wasn’t much resistance, the guy and girl became a couple pretty fast. There wasn’t any trials and the ex wife was thrown in haphazardly.
  • Simon is Wonderful!

    I really enjoyed The Sexy One. I loved that it was from both Abby and Simon's perspective. Not that I don't like only being in the guy's head, but I feel like it adds more to the book when it's dual perspectives. The Sexy One was really cute and sweet. It had a bit of a different feel than her other books and I liked having that. It was a smooth book, not many problems, which sort of surprised me. I love books with little kids and single dads, they're always adorable and that was definitely the case with this one. Simon is more mature and business minded, but isn't afraid to be goofy and playful with his daughter. I love the dynamic between Simon and Abby and how alike they are. They're a great match for one another and I really liked reading about their relationship. The Sexy One is one of my favorite Lauren Blakely books so far.

    I just love a good falling for the nanny story! Simon Travers is a divorced dad of the cutest little girl, Hayden. He is also the fantasy of every other nanny and they've nicknamed him "The Sexy One"....tall, gorgeous and so sexy! He is also sweet, kind, smart, funny and the best dad ever! That is why Abby Becker has fallen for him. Problem though is that she needs this job so she keeps her longing to herself. I really loved the conversations Abby and Simon had. It was fun, silly and just so sexy at times. I loved how both of these characters longed for the other but knew they shouldn't because they didn't want to lose what they had. But the minute they decided to forge ahead....BOOM! These two exploded. I loved them together. They were both fun and quirky at the same time. Add Hayden into the mix and it just worked. Simon's ex-wife, Miriam added a little fun into the mix. Loved the scene where Abby first met her! Priceless. Overall I really enjoyed this story and the characters. Great read and I highly recommend it!

    Simon and Abby were just adorable, denying their love for one another. Abby the nanny for Simon not an original story but a cute one. Loved it actually. Simon was a good man.
