Book 2 in The Extravagant series and can be read as a standalone. Loved this enemies to lovers romance. Cole and Sage were so hot together and when you add Daniel to the mix, explosive. Book 1 pulled me in to the Extravagant series and this book gripped me even more. Lauren has a way of creating characters and worlds that feel real every time you pick up one of her books and this was no exception. Love her work and I can’t wait to read what she has coming next. Highly recommend this story.
Holy smokes! Lauren Blakely writes a scorching and appealing story full of witty banter and hot sexiness.

In One Exquisite Touch we meet two guys, a girl, and a masquerade. Mix in undeniable attraction and a lady’s choice bet and we have all the best ingredients for a very racy love story.

Cole Donovan and his best friend Daniel Stewart are the new kids on the Las Vegas Strip and they’ve both been invited to a masquerade party for the debauched where they set sights on the most exquisite woman

One Exquisite Touch is book one in The Extravagant series by the incredibly talented Lauren Blakely. This series is starting off with a bang. It's hot, sexy, a little sweet, emotional and did I say sexy? Sage is looking for something extra. More. She's not even sure what she wants until she meets him at a masquerade ball. The sexy masked stranger makes her body hum and her heart race. She wants to see him again and hold him to his promises, but she doesn't expect him to walk into her office a fe ...more

One of the things I love about reading a Lauren Blakely book is that she writes books that are sexy, hot, provocative, and they keep me transfixed from beginning to end. But what I really love about her books is not only are her Heroes everything I want in a book boyfriend, but her Heroines are strong, independent women that a lot of the time comes into her own whether it’s finding her HEA or fulfilling her sex

Oh that Lauren Blakely. I do believe she has written her most deliciously filthy one-handed read ever! Talk about heat. Talk about passion. Talk about decadence. It is all there for the taking as Sage Carmichael and Cole Donovan take it to heights that this reader devoured happily.

Sage Carmichael has an image to uphold; she is a successful businesswoman who keeps her private life very private. A masquerade is the perfect opportunity for her to let down her guard a little bit.

Cole Donavan is a rival hotel owner. Had they met first without the masks, they would have been rivals only. The morning after their masked tryst, both are still thinking about their encounter and when they realize who they are without their masks, their attraction becomes even harder to ign

Just so you know, when the synopsis says, a sexy rivals to lovers standalone, they are understating the word sexy. The story is sex personified. Hot, hot, hot! Scorching. Sizzling. Burning. Even now, having finished the book, I could combust just thinking about it. Rival Vegas casino/hotel owners Cole Donavon and Sage Carmichael meet during a masquerade ball and share a sexy tryst with Cole’s best friend and business associate sexy Englishman Daniel Stewart.

This was a super steamy story in which two people who have heartbreak in their past find each other in a most unexpected way. And a night of passion and secret identities leads to a rivals to lovers revelation. Cole and Sage were both easy to like characters. And in the fashion I've come to appreciate from Lauren Blakely there were a few other characters who I got to glimpse and really like as well. While I did feel the sensual aspect was primary in this particular story, I also enjoyed the buil

One Exquisite Touch is the hottest book that I've ever experienced, and while I'm not normally down for the menage kind of heat, I had no issues with the scenes in this one. Sage is a public figure as co-CEO of the family hotel, so she's never really been able to explore a more out of her comfort zone sexy side, until she shows up to a masquerade where she comes across Cole & his buddy.  The next morning, she learns that Cole is her competition on the strip, but while they're supposed to be enem ...more

This was one book I could not put down and was read literally in one sitting. It is scorching hot, like sun temperature hot, and it should come with a warning, but it also tells the story of two powerful people who have issues as to

Another great book by Lauren Blakely.
There is fire, it’s sexy.
There are some mfm moments, but the story focuses more on the story of Sage and Cole.
I loved that Sage was portrayed as a strong character who stands her ground.
I love enemies to lovers stories and this one is one of my favourites.

One Exquisite Touch by Lauren Blakely

I love a good masquerade and One Exquisite Touch kicks off with quite a scene indeed. Sage is co-CEO of The Extravagant hotel in Las Vegas: she’s a boss lady who relishes the idea of giving up control. She attends a masquerade with her bestie and meets not one, but two Prince Wickeds - Cole and Daniel. This night starts off an Exquisite affair with two, no three! people who are business adversaries by day and so much more at night.

Yes, this book was kink at

*ARC Review*

This has got to be one of Lauren Blakely’s steamiest books to date!! The sexual chemistry between Cole and Sage was off the charts hot to begin with and then you add the fact that they are rivals and it gets even hotter!!! I love how Sage explores her sexual side in this story and isn’t made to feel ashamed and dirty. I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series!

Lauren Blakely has completely outdone herself with One Exquisite Touch, it was everything and more. The story was gripping, romantic and steamy! A page-turner and now one of my all-time favorite from the author.

In this sexy rivals-to-lovers romance we are introduced to Sage Carmichael, Co-CEO of one of the premier hotels in Las Vegas, The Extravagant. Her parents worked really hard to make the hotel a success and now Sage is busy working

4.5 🌟’s.

One thing that you need to understand with this Extravagant series, these couples are exploring their fantasies and some of them are quite kinky. And there is no shame in that, there's no shame in desire at all. I think it can be powerful, to pursue what we want and live out a dream, to feel it, taste it and be it. To get an insight into this world, that's a little empowering too, I might add.

This book centres around Sage Carmichael, twin sister to Ivy in the first book, and the owner o

One Exquisite Touch by Lauren Blakely was exquisite indeed. It was all about wicked pleasures, decadent experience and indulging in the most sinful fantasies. Lauren Blakely set my kindle and my body and my heart on fire.

Sage Carmichael, owner of The Extravagant and Cole Donovan, owner of The Invitation are business rivals as their hotels are both trying to be on top of Vegas. But their first meeting happened at a masquerade ball even before they knew each other. And they feel this electrifying
Sage is a strong businesswoman running her hotel with her sister Ivy. Cole and Daniel are the new guys in town running a rival hotel. After a chance meeting Sage, Cole and even Daniel open their eyes to new possibilities and feelings. It's so much more than just an amazingly sexy story. It shows strong characters dealing with their own emotional issues and hang ups as well as being able to let their hair down and become someone else for a while.

The narration really amped up the absolute hotness

Cole: "You’re so fucking filthy that you’re going to take my dick all the way to the back of your throat here in your corner office. You’re going to play with my balls as you kneel on your own carpet."

If that line doesn't intrigue you, nothing will!

A lot will be said about this book over the next week and I'm sure it will rightly include a lot of 🔥🔥 emojis. I will add to the discussion by saying this sizzling read has all of the dirty, sultry sex scenes that we will bookmark, gush about, and fon

5 star Review of One Exquisite Touch (The Extravagant #1) by Lauren Blakely

Book one in the latest series from Lauren Blakely and what a way to kick the series off. If this book is anything to go by Ms. Blakely has another winner on her hands. This was a steamy, hot, at times emotional read that ticked the boxes for me.

When Sage Carmichael meets a sinfully hot man at a masquerade ball, she has no idea that their lives would be changed forever. When she meets him a few days later she is shocked
