A week-long trip. A fake marriage. And seven delicious nights with only one bed in the hotel room.

He's my business partner, my good friend, and the man I've craved for years.
But I've resisted the sexy Brit, and I plan to keep up my walls because I've been there, done that, and I know how much it hurts when you let someone into your heart.
Then an opportunity comes along for

Merged review:

Facts: My One Week Husband is a standalone contemporary romance by Lauren Blakely. Told from both points of view, with a HEA. Genres: Billionaire Romance Tropes: Friends to Lovers | Office Romance | Travel Romance | Fake Marriage

Lauren Blakely writes an entrancing and vibrant story. The playful and witty banter bursts off the page from the start. The romance is touching and seductive and the trip through France was utterly pleasurable.

I absolutely devoured My One Week Husband! It was fun, and sexy, and I really appreciated and found it intriguing that the characters had some darkness to their pasts. It gave them a lot of development to their individual arcs.

Daniel and Scarlett's friendship and working relationship over the years created this closeness alone with fun flirtations that lent itself to a history of denied attraction. I love stories where the feelings and attraction are developed over time instead of instantly. It

Loved this friends to lovers/fake relationship romance. Two of my favorite tropes in one book and I was all for it. Scarlett and Daniel started out as friends and business partners which turned into a fake marriage to be able to get the deal of their careers. All they have to do is stay married for 7 days. Will what started out as fake turn into something real? Their story was an absolute delight to read. Ms. Blakely has done it again. I highly recommend picking up this read.

This was my very first Lauren Blakely book and now I know that I slowly but surely want to read all her other books as well. It was THAT good!!

First of all, I loved how the story started and the story between the two main characters developed. I loved that they already knew each other from the very start, that they already got along, were joking around, flirted and were not only acquainted, but actually KNEW each other inside out. They knew how the other ticked, what they liked and didn

I loved the escape this book brought me! Traveling to France was so fun and it was a sexy read, too. I love fake marriage romances and this one is added to my favorites. It had it all. It had some feels but it also had the steam you expect from Lauren Blakely. It was well rounded and enjoyable. I definitely recommend! ~Andrea

Ahhh I do love a good friends to lovers. Though they are business partner’s yes they are friends too. I enjoyed the banter and the friendship vibes throughout the book not just with the main characters but with the secondary ones as well.
It makes you feel like you could be a part of their group.
The women are fantastic and I love how they encourage each other, it’s sweet and fun.
The full cast really gives each of them their own voices and that is awesome.

I just finished My One Week Husband and I have the biggest smile on my face!!

Sometimes you just connect with a book on a whole other level. It’s a book that seeps into your heart. Your soul. Your being. It is a book you will never forget. One you scream about from the rooftops. One you want to read over and over again. One that consumes you.

I enjoy all of Lauren’s books but Wanderlust and A Guy Walks Into My Bar are those books of hers for me. They have stayed with me since I read them and mad

My One Week Husband is Lauren Blakely’s newest standalone. You don’t have to read One Exquisite Touch is fall in love with Daniel, it is just where you are first introduced to him. I would read it though since it’s red-hot! And if you did, then you met Scarlett too, as their better third in business.

Daniel and Scarlett are all about business. Her loves are Paris and numbers. His are women and music. They have been working together for three years in the hotel business. Partners for one. In that

Where to begin? My One Week Husband by Lauren Blakely is wonderfully written, as always. My heart broke for both Daniel and Scarlet. They both have endured a lot in their pasts. Will they finally allow themselves a forever future together filled with unconditional love? Do the stars guide Daniel and Scarlet or is there a cupid at play? Hmmm…..you’re going to have to either read it or listen to this absolutely amazing story.

Oh my goodness! This was so good! Lauren Blakely definitely hit it out of the park with this one. It's not your typical fake dating trope. Nope! It's so much more. I loved every single thing about Daniel and Scarlett's story.

While searching for a new boutique hotel chain, these two decided to pretend to be newlyweds. And let me tell you, this is where the real fun begins. Daniel and Scarlett had intense chemistry and attraction for each other since the first day they met. But they never acted o

I just adored this story and devoured it in one setting! Lauren Blakely has written such a sweet, seductive friends-to-lovers story. This whole story is set in Paris, and various parts of France. The setting itself, puts you in this tempting fantasy that you never want to leave.

We met Daniel in One Exquisite Touch, and knew there was little bit of mystery and heartache to this sexy man's past. In My One Week Husband, we are finally given the his story, and his HEA. Scarlett is his business part

If you follow LB on socials, you will know that she has a vibrant and buoyant personality so it’s no surprise that that rubs off on her characters. Scarlett and Daniel are no exception, they both give you a sense of living life to the fullest - carpe diem. Both were raised in a happy loving home, but it changes for one in a dramatic way as a teen which causes them to not trust themselves or love again. The other has been burnt in a previous relationship and even though that sucked big time, they ...more

5 SMOOCHES!

Going into My One Week Husband, I was ready for a magical, seductive trip to France through Lauren Blakely’s eyes. I’ve never actually been there, but this was my third fictional trip—all of them thanks to Blakely—and she has definitely stoked an interest. Through her notoriously vibrant descriptions, I easily visualized the scenery, creating the perfect backdrop to this most decadent story in my mind. Blakely proceeded to take me along on this couple’s heart-racing romp through Franc

After reading One Exquisite Touch, I couldn’t wait to read more about Daniel, in One Week Husband. Daniel and Scarlet are business partners who have good chemistry, fun banter and you can cut the sexual tension with a knife. This book wasn’t all just fun and games as we learn Daniel’s backstory and it made me want to reach in and give him a big hug. That part in the book was truly heartbreaking and I was in shock. I had to listen to that part twice to make sure I heard correctly. It was also nic ...more

I adore this book so much. I'm a big fan of friends who have a fake relationship that turns real trope and this is such an amazing one. Lauren Blakely is such a talented author! Daniel and Scarlett are such wonderful lovable characters. They are business partners who pretend to be a honeymooning couple for a week to check out different boutique hotels and what comes out of that is so much more than what either of them expected. Their story is so flirty, sexy, fun, sweet, passionate and emotional ...more
Morgan- Nothing Better Than a Book
Scarlett and Daniel are business partners looking to buy a hotel chain. They go to inspect all of the different hotels across Europe, but do so using a different identify. They pretend to be on their honeymoon and use different names, so that people won’t recognize them as hotel owners. This turns into Scarlett buying wigs and “costumes” to play the part, and it ends up being a lot of role-play basically.

It was very steamy! They told each other their fantasies through pretending they had alread

Daniel and Scarlett have been business partners for a few years and even though they have flirtatious banter neither thinks it’s a good idea to go there until they are on a business trip and the lines get blurred playing a fake couple. Cute banter

4.5 stars!

I love books about fake relationships and this one did not disappoint. It’s business partners turned best friends turned fake husband and wife turned lovers, and I adored it. It’s sexy, swoony, and full of heart, and I was invested from the start, unable to wait to see how the story unfolded.
Do we have to draw a line between fantasy and reality? Or for one glorious week, can we exist in this blurred world?

It's filled with flirty banter, sexual chemistry, and a beautifully written storyline that will take you from Paris to Monet's Garden, to small towns such as Nice, Marseille, and Lyon.

Although this is a total standalone, we first met Daniel Stewart in One Exquisite Touch, where he and Cole are not shy pleasing the ladies. Cole finds love with Sage, who owns a lav

I have been looking forward to Daniel’s story since he appeared in One Exquisite Touch! His character already fascinated me then and oh boy did Lauren Blakely give us a story!

So pretending to be married and still trying to be professional will have its challenges especially when there is this looming attraction as well as pas

My One Week Husband is - hands down - one of my favorite Lauren Blakely books so far (which is saying a lot considering her extensive & wonderful catalogue of awesomeness)! I knew within a few chapters this would be a repeat listen and one of the Best of 2021! Every word is precisely positioned and beautifully performed in DUET by this full cast of brilliant narrators!

I was a little torn on how to rate this book. It's performed by some favourites, and the premise had my attention. Business partners that pretend to be married for a week? Sign me up! But the story just didn't hit all my favourite spots. Maybe I wasn't in the right headspace for it or maybe because I expected something different?

I thought this book was going to be more like Lauren's romcoms than her After Dark series based on the cover and branding, but it felt much more like an After D

Ever since first being introduced to Daniel in One Exquisite Touch I’ve been dying to learn more about him and get his full story and LB did not disappoint. You do not need to have read One Exquisite Touch as My One Week Husband can be read as standalone.

Scarlett and Daniel are Hotelier’s. They are business partners and friends and respect each other immensely.

I adored Scarlett. She is a fierce business woman. She likes order and numbers and is intelligent and independent. She loves Par

5 star review of My One Week Husband by Lauren Blakely
When I read the blurb for this I just knew that this was going to be one heck of a read. From start to finish I was completely captivated by the story that Lauren Blakely wove.
This may well be one of my favourite books from Ms. Blakely and that is saying something. What could possibly go wrong? A fake marriage, a holiday in Europe and a couple who are not only friends, but business partners, who flirt outrageously and who are so attracted to

This book was beautiful! It starts off light, Daniel and Scarlett being co-workers who are attracted to each other and decide that a work trip is a perfect way to give in to those feelings for a week and ‘get it out of their system’. But they both have darkness and sadness in their past, they’ve been hurt and closed off, struggling to open up again. I loved how much they talked to each other about what they expected from the week, no empty promises, and no presumptions on either side. They kept ...more
