Review Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely

A sinfully sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely . . .
I’ll say this about Christian — he made one heck of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I’d seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do — I took his photo. I might have looked at the shot a few dozen times. Little did I know I’d meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I’d learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating. But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal — No strings. No expectations.

Our arrangement worked well enough until the day I needed a lot more from him…
Let me just say, this whole part-time lover thing was her idea. I’d have gone all-in from the start, but hey, when a gorgeous, brilliant woman invites you into her bed, and only her bed…well, I said yes.
But then, one hysterical phone call from my brother later, begging me to find myself a wife so grandfather’s business stays in the family, and I need a promotion with Elise. Turns out a full-time husband suits her needs too, and a temporary marriage of convenience ought to do the trick, until we can simply untie the knot…

As long as no one finds out…
As long as no one gets hurt…
As long as no one falls in love…
But our ending was one I never saw coming.

Let me tell you, Lauren Blakely just keeps writing swoon worthy, sexy romantic comedies that really pack a punch.

Christian and Elise were so fun to fall for. I could definitely make Part-Time Lover a full-time binge read over and over. Lauren Blakely had me at hot Danish doing naked handstands. But more than that, it was the person behind the handstand. The no expectations and no strings attached arrangement was way harder than either Christian or Elise expected. Two people who give of them selves to help others may just end up hurting them.

I loved throwing myself into their story in the city of love. You know a book is good when you find yourself talking to the characters. Let’s just say, I did a lot of talking!
