Publisher's Summary

From the NYT best-selling 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.

Such a Sweet Love Story!

I have to say I adore this book!!! It is such a sweet love story and believe it or not...NO DRAMA...i didn't even know that was possible in romance. This is a must buy author for me because all of her books leave me with a happy heart. I love her writing style and all of her stories. Simon & Abby's story is sweet and these two just make perfect sense. I loved Simon, he is a single dad who puts his daughter 1st and he is adult enough to have an amicable relationship with his ex for their child. Abby is the nanny and she loves his daughter. She also has great morals and sticks to her beliefs even if it might make things difficult. In the end I stayed up all night (on a work night no less) finishing this audiobook because it was just that good. This book would have been great as an ebook but add Sebastian York & Andi Arndt narrating the audiobook and it was even better.

Keep them coming Lauren, I will devour them all <3

to have a sexy boss

the Sexy One is the story of single dad Simon and Nanny Abby. They have worked together caring for Hayden and keeping their mutual lust from each other. However things just start to boil over and they can't keep away from each other.

You would think it would be a cliche book but it was seriously enjoyable. Abby is strong and independent and loves Hayden. However Simon is attractive and the way he is with his daughter makes him even more so. He's hard to resist. But when he starts to pay attention to her and shows her a new sides. Things heat up.

Simon is a good dad, and guy. ya his first marriage failed, but hello he learned from his mistakes. It was a cute, heart warming book and of course there is hot sex. But either way I just enjoyed this one.

Entertaining

This was a light, fun listen. A well-told story about two people falling in love. No unnecessary, over-done angst, just the right amount of thoughtfulness for the situation they were in. The characters were likable but I would have liked to see more growth from them (just a personal preference - I like to see the characters grow and change). Andi Arndt and Sebastian York were, as always, wonderful interpreters of the characters.

THE PERFECT TRIFECTA.. AUTHOR+NARRATION+STORY

I don't usually buy short stories BUT when they're written by the very talented Lauren Blakely and expertly narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt then there's simply no doubt in my mind that it'll be worth the credit. Simon and Abby's sweet love story didn't disappoint.. because there was humor, heart, heat and it's packed with tender romantic feels as Simon, the perfect single Dad, fights his 7 month constant attraction to his daughter's trusted and very caring Nannie. And Abby, for 7 long months, has watched this Adonis, this perfect Dad, this caring friendly man interact with his sweet daughter and she's silently drooled and dreamt of what could never be.

But, never say never, because when they're unexpectedly left alone the chemistry charges the air around them and it only took one brush of their lips to detonate the explosion of suppressed feelings. Which resulted in tearing down boundaries and creating new rules.. new rules that morphed and melded into a loving new family of three. There was no angst in this lovely listen.. just emotions, togetherness, chemistry.. and some crazy hot sex.

Worth a credit? When it comes to a tried and trusted Author's book there's no hesitation, no doubts and no question that YES it's going to be creditworthy... and it was.

Oh Simon, my Simon!

Would you listen to The Sexy One again? Why?

YES!!! Over and over and over again!!! In fact, three times wouldnt be enough to satiate my endless love for Simon!!! I loved this book the first time I read it, and after I listened to this audiobook, I was crazy and madly and endlessly in love with Simon and Abby, because seriously Sebastian York and Ani Arndt made an spectacular job with this audiobook.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sexy One?

There were so many awesome moments in this book that will be forever in my heart, for example the first time they made love, it was tender, romantic and very sexy, or their first date at the movies, it felt like they were teenagers *sigh*, or when Abby found Simon and little Hayden playing a tea party *ovaries exploded* This book has so many awesome moments to love and cherish for ever <3

What about Andi Arndt and Sebastian York ’s performance did you like?

For starters, I loved this book has a dual narration. Andi and Sebastian were a great team narrating Abby and Simon. The sweetness in Andi's voice was a perfect match with the strengh in Sebastian's performance, both inflections suited perfectly with Abby's and Simon's personalities.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! It's a short audiobook, well paced, great pronunciations and beautiful and sexy voices. The audio version of The Sexy One added more perfection to the original version, and like I said before, I want to repeat it once and again until the end of time.

Any additional comments?

I've loved every man Lauren has written, since Bryan, passing through Davis Milo, Clay Nichols, Colin Sloan, Nick Hammer, all of Lauren's book boyfriends have been amazing, but Simon, oh my god, Simon is perfect!! He's the best dad ever, the best lover ever and he's sweet, kind, respectful and everything! <3

The Sexy One

WoW, another HIT! I love Lauren's take on the Rom-Com’s. :-)
She sucks me in from the first page right to the last.

Abby is fun, witty, and can hold her own. I would love to have her ability to learn new languages as fast and as well as she does.
Not only that but she has a way with kids that’s awesome. No wonder Simon snatched her up to be the nanny.
She happens to have a secret crush on Simon she keeps under wraps she doesn’t want to lose her job, and she doesn’t think he sees her as anything but his daughter’s nanny.

“If you look up ‘hot single dad’ in the dictionary, you’d find his picture…He’s the prize in the available dad sweepstakes.”

Simon, a single dad has had some serious feelings for the nanny, Abby. He’s not a man to let his feeling run his life but Abby is a little hard to resist. And once he finds out she feels the same way… Well, things start to happen.

I love that these 2 but his daughter fight they don’t want to do anything that would hurt or harm her in any way. So if that means fighting there attraction they do it.

But love always finds a way doesn’t it, even if there are snags along the way.

“If loving that amazing, vibrant, talented, brilliant woman is a cliché, then I’ll gladly slap the sign on my chest. I’m a cliché, and I’m okay with that."

Organised and timely

I enjoyed this novel. From the beginning one could see that Simon was in love and spent time to capture what he wanted. So much one could relate to in this novel. Refreshing! Truly enjoyed it. Plus the narrators were just the icing on the top. I will listen again and share this book xxx

Delightfully funny

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it's funny and engaging. The characters are well drawn and very likeable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sexy One?

I can't pick one out but of course Sebastion York could read a grocery list and make it sound interesting.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Probably the one at the swimming pool near the beginning of the book when Abby has taken Hayden for a diving lesson.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, although it's too long for that!

Worth buying for the cover and voices alone

A light, easy, fun, sexy read. Told in dual POV, the story follows nanny Abby who works for super sexy Simon (looking after his adorably cute 5 year old daughter Hayden). Both Abby and Simon have undeniable attraction to each other, an attraction that they are not willing to act upon. I mean how cliché 'falling for the nanny/boss'. Neither one wants to ruin the fantastic relationship they have together as employer/employee. However the inevitable happens and they have to deal. A wonderfully enjoyable read.

DEFINITELY A FAVOURITE

I loved this book! It has the most adorable ending as well! Lauren Blakely's books are definitely in my list of favourites (every single book I have read so far from her). If you are someone looking for a sweet, steamy, funny and exciting book to read then Blakely is an amazing author to look to. It will leave you with an amazing feeling at the end. If you choose to listen to this as an audiobook, it is narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt and it is awesome, I love listening to the books they both narrate. This book overall is an amazing story though, and while it does have some embarrassing scenes that make you feel sorry for the character, it is one of the cutest stories with an adorable romance. This definitely helps captivate the audience, as do all other books by Lauren Blakely. I definitely don't regret reading this book and would recommend it to those that love this genre. I loved listening to this book!

Absolutely loved this and the series. Loved how they both tried to fight it as they knew the outcome but come to a compromise any way. Love this writer.
Narration was awesome too.
