Publisher's Summary

*A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely*
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 instant I run into her again 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 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. 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 . . .?*

All I can do is concur with the rest of my fellow listener's glowing reviews over this virtually angst-free dual POV contemporary romance because Tyler's heartfelt mission to win Delaney back was a very sweet listen indeed. Yes, he loved her once but still deliberately broke her heart by choosing to focus on a career over love, however in hindsight, he owned up to his mistake.. and excelled at wooing cautious Delaney back. And Delaney was right to tread warily, carefully dismantle the wall between them brick by brick, protect her heart and confide in her best friends while taking tentative steps forward to second chances and HEA's.

Their journey back to each other was nicely paced, had sizzling chemistry, smooth easy banter, humor, sexy scenes, dirty words and romantic gestures.. and the 'expected' romance drama never materialized.. which made it easy-going too. These loveable characters story was safely in the hands of two excellent narrators who brought to life the warmth between lovers, the trust between friends.. and the vulnerabilities felt when you give love a second chance.

Worth a credit? You know what your going to get with a Lauren Blakely book.. and she doesn't disappoint her fans - so YES another creditworthy listen from a trusted Author.

Wow, Blakely Does It Again!

She manages to deliver another hit, and amps up the steam and chemistry in this one! I loved every minute. Tyler and Delaney's story had me helplessly glued to my headphones! It was an awesome second chance story, but it moves so fast, it almost felt like an instant love story. Tyler and Delaney haven't seen each other in eight years, but from the moment their paths cross, their push/pull relationship takes off like a rocket 🚀!

Delaney was still a little hurt from Tyler breaking things off with her when they were in college. But even after all this time, he was still the STAR in her nightly fantasies, and every time she pulled out her battery operated toy. From the moment Tyler sees Delaney, he knows he has to win her back. He's not sure if it's regret or love, but he's determined to make her his, and does some WILDLY CRAZY things to prove how serious he is about her. Tyler's character had me smiling, swooning, blushing, and craving more!

These narrators knocked it out of the park! Zachary has a great voice, and did an amazing job with Tyler's character. Andi, she's a pro, and everything she narrates is flawless. Andi is one of my favorite narrators.

The Hot One was fabulous, and my credit was well spent. The story is dialogue driven with no wasted words or unnecessary description. Each scene gets right to the point, and more importantly to all the steamy bits! I was torn between four and five stars, but met in the middle with a 4.5. (No cliffhangers, and of course a sweet & steamy HEA.) I'm looking forward to seeing what Blakely brings to audio next!
