Some women are just forbidden.
Like—off the top of my head—MY SISTER’S LIFE-LONG BEST FRIEND.

I love novellas because they can be enjoyed on their own as a quick and fun read, or they can add another layer to an existing story by giving a deeper history or perspective. Not only do listeners get the novella Nobody Does it Better on this audiobook, but they also get FOUR additional novellas as well! This audiobook is packed with extras! I loved hearing Joe Arden and Erin Mallon bring Shaw and Vanessa's sto

This is set in the same world as Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor and it is Shaw and Vanessa's story! These two have been circling each other since their teen years, but they never admitted it. And his sister and her best friend, Perri, had forbidden Shaw from pursuing Vanessa. Girl code, Brother code, and all that jazz just left these two longing in secret...well sort of secret. But love is in the air with this group, and there are matchmakers ready to stir some things up in t
Lauren Blakely’s latest in her Lucky in Love series is only novella length, but it certainly packs a sizzling hot, flirty and sweet punch.

When Shaw finds himself trapped with the woman he’s wanted for years, who also happens to be his very off-limits sister’s best friend, all alone in a cabin due to a snow storm he takes the chance to uncover if she feels the same way about him and convince her he’s the man for her.

Vanessa has spent years crushing after her best friend’s brother, but because h

𝐍𝐨𝐛𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐃𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐭 𝐁𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 by Lauren Blakely is a scorching HOT forbidden delight that will excite, tantalize, and tease your heart, your mind, and every nerve ending in your body. Is it just me, or is Lauren’s writing getting more and more sexy with each new release? Trust me, I'm not complaining one bit! The dirtier the better is my motto when it comes to romance. But Shaw and Vanessa’s story brought me back to the days of Blakely’s 𝑆𝑒𝑑𝑢𝑐𝑡𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝑁𝑖𝑔ℎ𝑡𝑠 and 𝑆𝑖𝑛𝑓𝑢𝑙 𝑁𝑖𝑔ℎ

The heart wants what the heart wants. We meet both of these characters in the book previous. When your sister tells you, you are not allowed to date her best friend you listen even if it kills you a little bit inside.

I love that he honors her wishes but like I started this review with, the heart wants what it wants and sometime your powerless to say no.

I love that when they were caught they were open and honest about it. There was no secrets it was all or nothing. And the sister’s reaction wel

When Lauren Blakely introduced Vanessa and Shaw in Best Laid Plans, the fact that Shaw was Vanessa’s best friend’s brother pretty much laid the groundwork for a possible romance between them. Their flirtation seemed to heat up in The Best Laid Plans to the point where I was dying to get my hands on their story, Nobody Does It Better. I mean, who doesn’t love a forbidden romance? Especially one that’s both shamelessly flirty and deliciously naughty…

3 Shaw and Vanessa Stars

Sweet, sexy and fun novella about Shaw and Vanessa. These two characters featured heavily in the previous two books but this would still read easily as a standalone.

If you enjoy off limits best friends of siblings romances then this is a gorgeous quick read. Shaw is the older brother of Perri who is Vanessa’s best friend.

When the hot fire fighter and the gorgeous girl decide to finally give in to their secret crush , the sparks most definitely fly.

HEA? Yes
Cheating? No
Nobody Does It Better was one of those books that I saw on audible.. but had like 3 short stories attached as well. Which I guess is okay because I'm getting a 4 for 1 deal here but that meant the book was going to end WAY too early for me. It did and I'm still not happy about it.

In the book, you meet Vanessa and Shaw. Now these two have had feelings for each other since dinosaurs roamed the earth. Nothing has ever happened between them because of his sister, Perri. Who just happens to be Vaness

Oh man, I could hardly put this one down once I got started! Nobody Does It Better is a novella and the third book in the Lucky In Love series. This can be read as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor first. Not only are they both fantastic reads, but that's where we are first introduced to Vanessa and Shaw, the two leads in this book. They have been dancing around their attraction to one another for years, but unable to act on it due to her ...more
4 stars!

This is such a cute read! It’s a novella which finishes off the Lucky in Love series, giving us the story of Shaw and Vanessa. These two have been dancing around each other through the last two books, but Vanessa is the best friend of Shaw’s younger sister, Perri, who has frequently warned them both away from the other in the past so they’ve kept their distance. But with a little help with some friendly matchmakers and a night locked away in a cabin in the snow, everything is finally abo

His libido was craving her for many years, I wonder how many OWs did he do while still craving her.
I just can't get what is sexy about a walking-talking dick, which was NOT out of order for many years?! Is it romantic, when a male chromosome has sex with OWs while being in lust/love with a woman and then suddenly deciding/getting a chance to be with his The one?! 😖

Nobody Does it Better was a tasty, sweet and light-hearted friends to lovers romance. It was the perfect ending for The Lucky in Love series!

Readers who have read Lauren Blakely’s Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor should be quite familiar with Shaw and Vanessa and the reasons why they have hidden their feelings for each other for quite some time, but in Nobody Does It Better, an opportunity for these two to finally be honest with each other comes to fruition and while it isn’t the most ideal situation, there’s no turning back once they lay everything on their line - their bodies. their hearts, and their souls.

Lauren Blakely wow's me AGAIN!!! It's no surprise that we get everything from this novella that we would from a full length novel. Her words are golden, she's the master of all the feels, nobody does it better than Lauren Blakely!!! Short, snappy, sexy and sweet, Shaw and Vanessa's story is ohhh so satisfying.

I feel like I've grown to love Shaw and Vanessa through the last 2 books of the Lucky in Love series. Vanessa is best friend with Perri and Perri's brother, Shaw, have been destined to be m

I just finished my advanced copy of Nobody does it better by Lauren Blakely. This book is the next in the series Lucky in Love. It’s Shaw and Vanessa’s story and it was a good quick one. They have been in love with each other for years and neither knew. He’s her best friends brother and is off limits. She is his sisters best friend and he’s been told he is not allowed to date her so she’s forbidden fruit so he’s been admiring her from afar since high school. They get stuck at her family’s cabin ...more

Holy cow, how I enjoyed this novella.

Nobody Does It Better is a best friend's brother/been in love with you since high school romance. It takes YEARS—and I'm talking decades—for the main characters to finally give in to their attraction so even though this is a fast-paced story that just focuses on the days leading up to that moment (when they kiss the heck out of their faces and get their HEA), it still feels like a slow burn. Specially with that very cliché yet amazing scene where

This is Shaw and Vanessa’s story and I couldn’t be happier! These two were teased in Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor. Because Shaw’s sister is best friends with Vanessa, she was off limits and vice versa. Perri was worried her player of a brother would take advantage of and hurt her best friend, putting a strain on their friendship. But keeping their feelings bottled up for so long didn’t diminish them, it only made the attraction continue to simmer until the secret feelings w

Shaw Keating & Vanessa Marquez have known each other since they were kids but when you crushed on the other for years but never react to the feeling because of the one person they both care about Shaw’s sister Perri and Vanessa’s best friend.

Nobody Does It Better than Lauren Blakely! A sexy best friends brother romance is just what I needed and let me tell you, this story delivered! Shaw and Vanessa have had feelings for each other for YEARS but never acted upon it due to Shaw’s sister, Perri, forbiddening Shaw to pursue Vanessa. But when the two are snowed in, ALL bets are off!

Ever wondered what happened to some of those side characters that you read about in books? Well look no further because this little book is full of them.

It may be a short read but it is crammed full of delicious content!

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon narrating are as perfect together as strawberries and cream, and a few cameo's are sprinkled throughout to give that little sugar on the top.

Included in this audio are an extra few Novellas to whet your appetite.

best friend’s brother trope done right. i love to read books with this trope or friends-to-lovers. either both parties have always been in love with each other but afraid of spoiling the friendship or they’ve known each other for so long and only just found out about the romantic feelings they have for the other person. the longing and yearning is fun to read about. vanessa and shaw’s chemistry is palpable. the sexual tension too. even though it’s a novella, it holds itself. the author builds up ...more

Finally, we get Shaw and Vanessa.

And a few meddling townspeople, some friends who know what is going on with them (even when they ignore it) and a well timed snowstorm. (Can I mention, the one time I was stranded due to weather, I was at a 7-11 and not in a picturesque, private, well-stocked cabin with a sexy firefighter? But, that't not the point...)

The point of this story is crazy, undeniable, and real chemistry that says it is time for them to stop res
