Look, she started it.

She issued me a challenge I couldn’t back down from. Make her purr like no man has done before.

Fine, she’s my business partner’s daughter. All right, I’m also working in the same damn practice with her. Yes, she happens to be my ex-fling. But that was seven years ago, and it was barely a week-long thing.

Except, Sloane is still the one I can’t stop t

Oh my! Lauren Blakely once again makes my heart go pitter-patter with a hero that takes me off to swoon-land. I loved EVERYTHING about Satisfaction Guaranteed from the characters to the flirty dialogue to their professions that shape who they are. This second-chance rom-com is the whole kit and caboodle and then some!

Oh, how fun it was to return to the Big Rock world by Lauren Blakely. So exciting to see old faces and learn how integral a few of them are to this new story. Malone Goodman, is a good man(pun totally intended). Malone is currently the junior partner in a Veterinary Clinic and a lounge singer who loves the classics. Sinatra (Chairman of the Board) is he absolute favorite. Seven years ago Malone had a fling with the very sexy Sloane Elizabeth. She turns out to be the daughter of his business part ...more

Yes, yes, yes!!!!
Satisfaction is well and truly guaranteed in this story by my all time fav author, Lauren Blakely. She does more than what it says on the tin. Sloane and Malone were the sweetest couple who belonged together, no matter what.
They met seven years ago, when Malone had graduated from vet school and Sloane was just twenty-two. Malone was a bit older and when he found out his new boss was also Sloane’s father, he broke off their one wonderous week affair.
But, he never forgot about th

Swoon. Swoon. Swoon.
Can I just please get my own Malone right now?!

First of all before my review even begins I have to send praises to Lauren Blakely. She is a magician of a writer, her stories always bring a smile to my face and make me crave more. If there is one author I can always count on providing it is Lauren, she is my very own Satisfaction Guaranteed author!

Now to Malone and Sloane's story, (yes their names rhyme and it's hillairous).

Have mercy! I devoured this one. Funny. Sweet. SEXY. So very sexy. Malone is a literal dream. An angelic voice, loyal friend and son, and a top veterinarian. Sloane never stood a chance when she met him seven years ago. When she begins sharing his space at work, their electric chemistry is enough to burn down the joint.

I wouldn’t change anything about this book. Enjoyable read from start to finish.

One of the reasons Lauren Blakely is a one-click author for me is because she writes characters that are both relatable and loveable. I adored everything about Satisfaction Guaranteed. It’s a second chance forbidden romance between Sloane Elizabeth, who runs a foundation and animal rescue, and Malone Goodman, a compassionate Veterinarian.

They have known each other for years, have so much in common, and are absolutely perfect for one another! But they have one big obstacle in their way–her fathe

Sometimes you need something, in my case a book, to just hit you right.

Going into this book, The cover definitely had me. I was smitten with it.
Lately my life has been a roller coaster. Many ups and many downs. With saying this, I needed a drama free read, one that didn't have "too" much lightness though. I got it with this read. I adored Malone & Sloane, I completely and utterly swooned for Malone. He was everything wrapped up in a nice package.

Lauren Blakely knows how to write the perfect man. Dr. Malone Goodman is practically perfect in every way and I devoured Satisfaction Guaranteed in just one sitting.

Satisfaction Guaranteed is dirty and perfect in the best ways possible. Blakely hit this one out of the ballpark!

Lauren Blakely serves up Satisfaction Guaranteed with her ever present charm and humor.

I know I say this a lot, but what a wonderful story. I listened to the audiobook, and had the fortune to hear Andi Arndt work her usual romantic magic. For me, Jason Clarke was the treat with this tale. He ticks all the boxes with his panty-melting voice and wide range of talent. From the great w/animals and their people veterinarian, to the boss to his vet techs, to my favorite sultry, seductive, raspy tone he only shares with Sloane, Dr. Malone Goodman is a man of many talents.

Satisfaction Guaranteed had all of the makings of a quick funny sexy and emotional read. Smart attractive characters with witty personalities, a splash of a forbidden romance that could have been catastrophic if things took a wrong turn and a second chance of having something that you knew that you were meant to have.

Malone Goodman is one of the best Vet in his field. His love and care for animals is like no other and being good at his job is extremely important to him. Hoping to take over

Malone Goodman is a vet who has been focused on work and hoping to achieve his dream of owning his own practice. He is a real catch, but so far no woman has caught him.

But now the "one that got away" is back in Malone's world again. Sloane is all he ever wanted. She is his dream woman, and has been for seven years, but circumstances made her off limits. But she is here now and they are going to be working in close proximity so that makes it even worse. She is temptation and unfinished business.

One word? 𝗦𝗪𝗢𝗢𝗡
Yet again, Ms. Blakely has gone and written a book that had me weak at the knees, swooning and sighing happily. Normally I am a dark romance girl. But lately I've found myself gravitating towards lighter reads, and Lauren is known for her amazing, fun, swoony, hot as hell, witty and hilarious reads and Satisfaction Guaranteed was just that and 𝗠𝗢𝗥𝗘.

A male POV read? YES YES YES! Loved it. More than love it! Devoured every single word. I've read a few male POV reads but nothing has

I am such a Lauren Blakely fan and I feel like the title Satisfaction Guaranteed really tells the tale about what you can expect from one of her books. I loved that we revisited some of the people we know from her previous Big Rock series coupled with a second chance romance!

This does not work for me at all. The premise, I mean. They've been into each other for seven years. They both know it. They had a fling but then Malone met her dad on a job interview that went well. So they're partners. And the first thing dad says is something like "hands off my daughter". Which is stupid. Malone's good enough to be his business partner, but not good enough for his girl? And I'm barely holding on hoping that there's more to it, like that dad is a father figure or somehow worth ...more

Listeners really need to prepare themselves for this audiobook. Jason Clarke’s performance as Malone is going to melt your panties right off! WOW! I was already a huge fan of Jason Clarke, but he is even more talented than I imagined! He voices so many characters so effortlessly, and I love the emotion that he puts into his performance. You can honestly hear the smile in his voice and he actually performs 7 songs on this audiobook! This isn’t a duet narration, bu

Lauren Blakely never fails to deliver a fun and cute romance for me. Malone and Sloane's relationship gave me just what I wanted and I loved how easy their connection was. Sometimes you just need a book that's drama free and will keep a smile on your face the whole day. That's this book! It was quirky, and yes a little cheesy at times, but it was never too much and it felt natural to these characters. Together they were adorable and it was really great to read.

I really enjoyed the very original and entertaining, Satisfaction Guaranteed. This is the first time I've experienced singing in my audiobook listening and I quite enjoyed it. My advice, though is to get your speed right. If you're like me and have your speed set at 1.65 - 1.75 or faster, the background music will not be in sync. My first thoughts were that he was purposely playing the piano bad as part of the storyline. But the punchline never came. This had me stopping and

From start to finish, this book had me grinning, giggling, and swooning all over! Sloane and Malone’s romance is a sweet and sexy, delightful treat that will keep you entertained the whole way through. Just like with ANY Lauren Blakely Romance, your satisfaction is indeed…guaranteed!

We want what we can’t have, Malone and Sloane circle each other and their chemistry is off the charts. But they both respect her father who is also Malone business partner too much to start something.

Years go by and they are connecting again only it’s not as easy to stay away this time. That chemistry thing ;) is biting them in the butts.

I love the way this book made me feel, Malone takes his career seriously but also knows what he wants and is willing to fight for it. I find this admirable.

Just what the doctor ordered! Such a clever and charming tale of true love. All the oldies but goodies woven throughout spoke to my love of music. The socks! Oh those socks! Two fabulously entertaining main characters who share a love of animals with a secondary cast of helpful friends and family members who help pull it altogether into one extremely fun-to-read romantic comedy.

Lauren has done it again. This was a second chance story about Malone and Sloane. They met 7 years ago but once he found out that she was the daughter of his new boss he put a halt to things. 7 years later, she is back in his life. They try to stay away from each other but their chemistry is off the charts and it keeps pulling them towards each other. They finally give in to the chemistry and let me say it was off the charts.

Oy, this is a hard one to write.

For the first time ever, I didn't completely love a Lauren Blakely book.

Don't get me wrong, I liked it, I just didn't love it.

It could just be the head space I was in, having a stupid head cold and everything was just blegh, but I know that this is an anomoly.

The first 20% of the book, to me, I just couldn't get in to. This never happens with me and LB. I did get into it after that point.

There aren’t enough all-male-POV rom-coms in the world. I could probably list the ones I’ve read off the top of my head and most of them would be by Lauren Blakely, who is particularly adept at writing through the perspective of the opposite sex. Her all-male-POV books like Big Rock, Well Hung, and now, Satisfaction Guaranteed, are immeasurably fun, quick-witted, deliciously naughty reads – all with a sexy, swoon-worthy hero delivering the story.

Satisfaction Guaranteed is a sweet, sexy, second-chance, slightly forbidden, romance. Years after spending one incredible week together, Malone and Sloane (say that 5 times fast), are thrown back together and find the attraction and chemistry hasn't waned a bit. But, (and isn't there always a but?), once again they find her father standing in their way.

Satisfaction Guaranteed is Lauren Blakely's newest swoonworthy, sexy romance. It's like she knows exactly what I love and writes it! Second chance romance is my favorite and Lauren writes them better than anyone else. This has a little added forbidden which just adds a to the sexiness.

I know without a doubt, if I need a pick me up, feel good story, I can count on this author to deliver. This book is in my top 5 of her novels for lots of reasons. Firstly, she is a master at writing in the male POV. She can depict a male’s emotions and give us such detail on what makes them tick without making them seem like a douchebag. Secondly, she is a genius with the flirty, dirty banter between her couples, and this book was superb. She also makes her characters f
