Ever notice that sometimes a guy will do something really stupid, like let the love of his life slip through his fingers?

The Hot One is written by Lauren Blakely...need I say more?
Yes, let me explain all the ways I love The Hot One. Well, two words...Tyler Nichols! Hot damn!!!! Tyler Nichols, asshole extraordinaire, has another side to him other than a Hot shot entertainment lawyer. Tyler screwed up his chance at happiness years ago and in that process, he also altered the life of the woman he so deeply loved. A chance meeting sparks all of the old feelings he once h

It is not easy to keep a continuing series of Stand Alone books which are loosely connected, fresh. It is easy to fall into patterns or tried and true clichés. What is totally terrific about Lauren Blakely’s new string of Contemporary Sexy Romances is the way she keeps them humming and moving forward each and every time.

Think experiencing a “Sex and the City” circle of friends who are interconnected and cross paths. Blakely has done this wit

Just like our hero Tyler Nichols, Lauren Blakely definitely knows to go big or go home. And with The Hot One, she not only goes big, she goes over the top humongous! This is the Lauren Blakely I know and love. The author who brings her very best when it comes to a wonderful second chance romance. The joy I feel as two desperate lovers find their paths, and that is meant literally, cross after 8 long years apart. That Tyler and his Delaney prepare to face each other again, even it means the possi ...more

He is HOT, cocky, and is like delicious foreplay when he walks. When he smiles... Oh, my! Just finished the ARC and he is totally delicious! There is nothing he will not do in order to get what he wants. Sizzling loving-sexy-porn the only way to describe when Delaney and Tyler get together. I need a cold shower now!

Every time I pick up a new Lauren Blakely book, I wonder how long it will take me to fall in love with the main male character. It's pretty much become a laughable game I play considering most of the time, I fall head over heels immediately. And Tyler Nichols? happened in seconds as I pretty much fell ass-over-elbow for this hot and sexy yet sweet, dirty-talking man! He is definitely as swoon-worthy as B

Dive into Tyler's story and his second-chance romance in this sizzler! Both charming and riddled with humor, The Hot One will keep you turning the pages and saying " I more chapter"! I just loved Delaney and her independent, conscientious personality coupled with this high temperature love story! In addition, we get little snippets from some of Lauren Blakely's other characters so we can all re-swoon about our fond memories! ...more

Sometimes love needs a second chance because it wasn’t ready the first time.

There is something special about second-chance love that summons the soul. Soul mates who have always loved each other are granted another chance. I LOVE SECOND-CHANCE ROMANCES SOOO MUCH!! Second-chance love stories are my obsession…my heart…my soul. Lauren Blakely’s The Hot One, a heartwarming and hypnotizing second-chance romance, was my KRYPTONITE.

When I pick up a Lauren Blakely rom-com, I can’t help but quickly grin

Oh Lauren Blakely - You always seem to outdo yourself with each and every book! A few things that a reader can ALWAYS count on when they pick up one of your books is fabulous writing, unique characters, humor, and AMAZING sex!

I loved Tyler from the very beginning - with all of his sexy, cocky, crazy ideas on how to win Delaney back. That man does not know how to take no for an answer. When he wants something, he goes balls out to make it happen! And damn, does that man come up with some creativ

Lauren Blakely is the QUEEN of sweet, fun, and steamy reads. I swear, every single time I sit down to one of her novels, I end up feeling like I'm walking on cloud nine. She fills me up with so much happy, I can't stop myself from going back to her time and time again. Her books are utterly addictive. Little morsels of yum that are always so solid. I know what I'm going to get from her. She's consistent, and never fails. And The Hot One was exactly what I was wanting. It was bookish com

I knew Tyler's book would be worth the wait! To quote one of Delaney's clients, Gigi, he is &%^@hot!!!!
Tyler is such a sexy, funny, sweet charmer as well as being a successful entertainment lawyer. Delaney is a beautiful woman on the inside and out and is also funny and sweet and runs her own massage business called Nirvana. Tyler can be a bit cocky and she can be quite sassy and that combo really works for this couple. I absolutely love second chance romances and this one is phenomenal! They h

Let me introduce myself: My name is Beth and I LOVE Lauren Blakely. A lot. And it's all because of books like The Hot One.

You guys, I am completely and utterly blissed out. I'm happy, smiling and feeling good. The Hot One could also be called The Swoony, Joyful, HOT One. It might be a mouthful (no pun intended, but also *snicker*), but it's also accurate. This is a book that's designed to help you escape, to believe in love an

The Hot one is a perfect title for Tyler's story.
He was indeed HOT and the there you go folks...that equals The Hot One...LOL.
Tyler made his success in life by working hard, focusing on what he wanted...and dumping the love of his life. It's a decision that has haunted him for years, but now a chance encounter while playing in the park with his cousin's cute kid and his spidey senses are tingling and the one he let get away all those years ago is now suddenly running by him.

Hello, Tyler...all of Tyler...

There are so many second-chance romances out in the world, and while I love most of them, they can get predictable. One thing I can say about Lauren Blakely books is that they're never predictable, and this one is no different. Her writing is always top notch, her characters pull you in and make you want to root for them (and wish they were your best friends), and her stories keep you engaged and in love.

This one had a different feel for me than some of her others,

I have yet to find a Lauren Blakely book that I haven't wanted to devour in one sitting! The moment The Hot One hit my kindle everything else on my TBR list took a backseat and I dove in to Tyler and Delaney's story. This sexy, swoony, second chance romance was definitely worth my red eyes at work the next day.

The Hot One is a sexy standalone giving us the story of Tyler Nichols, hot shot entertainment lawyer to the stars and Delaney Stewart, a massage therapist in NYC.

The Hot One. Well that is an appropriate title for no other than Tyler Nichols. But hot is only one word that comes to mind when describing him. Try sexy, charming, persistent.
Persistent because the moment he runs into his former love interest from many years ago he will stop at nothing to win her back. Not an easy task as it turns out. But a task worth taking on.

Delaney can't believe it when she sees Tyler again, in his flesh, still as hot and desirable as the last time she saw him. But then th

Who doesn't love a second chance romance? It's probably my all-time favorite trope and I LOVE the fact that Lauren Blakely has written another spellbinding love story about a couple reuniting for another chance at happily ever after. In The Hot One, college sweethearts, Tyler and Delaney, are brought back together by fate but, once fate intervenes, it’s up to them to take the next step. Theirs is a story about seizing the moment and following your heart, complete with witty banter, an impulsive, ...more

I admit I have a weakness for Lauren Blakely’s men, and it’s beginning to sound redundant that I keep saying, “this one was my favorite.” But Tyler Nichols…Oh. My. God. The title is definitely apropos; this man is over the top HOT in oh, so many ways.

There’s just something about a second chance romance. This isn’t the first time Lauren has wowed me with a one-that-got-away story, but "The Hot One" is beyond sweet, it’s even beyond sexy. (Yes. I said beyond). Tyler and Delaney’s story struck a c

Tyler Nichols is intelligent, cocky, and used to getting his way. He's an entertainment lawyer with ballsy negotiation skills. But all it takes is one unexpected meeting with his lost college love, Delaney, to get his head spinning and his tongue tied. She's the one that got away...well, he pushed her away, broke her heart, and changed her life in ways he did not even realize.

But now he realizes that eight years has not dimmed his attraction or feelings for the fiery beauty. But she's not ready

Holy hotness Tyler Nichols’ own book….YES!!!!!! Who does not believe this will be a panty melting turn you into a puddle book? If you have read any of Laurens books, then you know you are in for a treat. I was highly anticipating this book since we met Tyler in Mr. O and had me wondering how much like Clay he is. After all they are cousins and business partners.

➦Ah... how many of us have made some shitty decisions in our 20s?

➦Yeah, yeah... we've all done it. And Tyler here is no exception. He dumps his college sweetheart right at the end of his senior year because he is afraid he can't juggle both a relationship and a law career. But you know what, even Thor isn't perfect.

➦Bah, who am I kiddin'?

➦I digress. So what happens when Tyler runs into Delaney many years later and realizes that he made a huge mistake? What's the best way to get her back?

➳Lauren Blakely brings a story that involves the cliche aspect of a second chance at love with Tyler and Delaney and their history as college couples, and now as adults with a passion that still subsides…

➳As college sweethearts go, this has to be the most cliche story I have read in quite some time. I was not expecting to say such a thing about Lauren’s writing because I simply adore her, however this novel had me pulling my hair out. Yes, Lauren’s writing always seems to get straight to the

Over the last year, Lauren Blakely has skyrocketed straight to the top of my auto-buy authors list. Sometimes, I feel like I’m in a perpetual state of waiting for her next book to release, so when I get my hands on one, it’s like Christmas, my birthday and Valentine’s Day all wrapped up into one.

"Let the past rest. Let the future unfold. Let the present be a gift"

Second chance romance is one of my all time favorite tropes, and it's a trope that Lauren does incredibly well. She truly has a gift when it comes to bringing two souls who are meant to be together, back together.

Tyler and Delaney were collage lovers torn apart by the decision to follow a career path instead of ones heart. Reali

One of the things I love best about Lauren Blakely is her ability to write such gorgeous, swoony, funny, sexy, and loving male characters…and have each one be completely different! That takes talent, and she does it like no other.The only thing predictable about her men is the fact that you’ll fall hard for each and every one of them. Tyler Nichols is her newest sweetheart and, like all of her men, has a special place in my heart.
