Publisher's Summary

*A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely*

Ever notice that sometimes a guy will do something really stupid, like let the love of his life slip through his fingers?

Yeah. I'm that guy. But the instant I run into her again I've got one goal and one goal only-a second chance. The plan? Go big or go home.

Fine, at first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend's place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count-she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you've got to play to your strengths when you're fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I'm prepared to fight hard for her. Because sometimes you need a second chance at first love.

*He's the one who got away . . . *

The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that at my job, showing off his rock-hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he's not . . .? I've tried like hell to forget him, but maybe I'm cursed to remember the guy I fell madly in love with eight years ago. Lord knows I'm not over him, so what's the harm in giving him a week to prove he's changed in the ways that matter?

*After all, how do you resist the hot one . . .?*

    "Enjoyable, light read"

    A sweet, funny, super sexy, second chance romance that made my heart go pitter patter. We follow Delaney and Tyler who used to date in college, split up 8 years earlier and meet by chance in the park. It would appear that neither of them has gotten over their feelings for the other, but Delaney has not quite forgiven Tyler for the way he broke up with her. Tyler is hot, super adorable, extremely persistent, and does not think before he acts. Delaney takes things a lot more slowly, she thinks things through and discusses with her besties. No matter how much she tries to forget about Tyler and move on, it's not happening, not at all. It doesn't help that Tyler is pulling out all the stops, living by his motto of 'Go Big or Go Home'. Told in dual POV, this is an enjoyable, light easy read, and as usual from Lauren Blakely, beautifully written and narrated to perfection.

    "Provided a spark for my headphones."


    Oh my oh my, both narrators did an exquisite job of bringing the characters to life, Andi Arndt & Zacchary Webber. Two of my favourites in fact.

    Now the book, a second chance romance and with some serious grovelling to do over the way things ended, Tyler takes it upon himself to get down to basics, basically laying it all out there for Delaney to see. Hoping for a chance...... you know....

    With a wonderful nurturing side, a romantic, sexy and passionate, and not forgetting he is a smart dresser for his job, Tyler is hot in and out of the sexy times! Delaney can certainly match him, and i loved getting to know Lauren's latest 'Hot Ones' they certainly provided some spark for my headphones!

    "TRUE TO FORM, LB DELIVERED A SIGHWORTHY LOVE STORY"

    All I can do is concur with the rest of my fellow listener's glowing reviews over this virtually angst-free dual POV contemporary romance because Tyler's heartfelt mission to win Delaney back was a very sweet listen indeed. Yes, he loved her once but still deliberately broke her heart by choosing to focus on a career over love, however in hindsight, he owned up to his mistake.. and excelled at wooing cautious Delaney back. And Delaney was right to tread warily, carefully dismantle the wall between them brick by brick, protect her heart and confide in her best friends while taking tentative steps forward to second chances and HEA's.

    Their journey back to each other was nicely paced, had sizzling chemistry, smooth easy banter, humor, sexy scenes, dirty words and romantic gestures.. and the 'expected' romance drama never materialized.. which made it easy-going too. These loveable characters story was safely in the hands of two excellent narrators who brought to life the warmth between lovers, the trust between friends.. and the vulnerabilities felt when you give love a second chance.

    Worth a credit? You know what your going to get with a Lauren Blakely book.. and she doesn't disappoint her fans - so YES another creditworthy listen from a trusted Author.

    "ONE HOT, STEAMY & SWEET SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE!"


    Wow, Blakely Does It Again!

    She manages to deliver another hit, and amps up the steam and chemistry in this one! I loved every minute. Tyler and Delaney's story had me helplessly glued to my headphones! It was an awesome second chance story, but it moves so fast, it almost felt like an instant love story. Tyler and Delaney haven't seen each other in eight years, but from the moment their paths cross, their push/pull relationship takes off like a rocket 🚀!

    Delaney was still a little hurt from Tyler breaking things off with her when they were in college. But even after all this time, he was still the STAR in her nightly fantasies, and every time she pulled out her battery operated toy. From the moment Tyler sees Delaney, he knows he has to win her back. He's not sure if it's regret or love, but he's determined to make her his, and does some WILDLY CRAZY things to prove how serious he is about her. Tyler's character had me smiling, swooning, blushing, and craving more!

    These narrators knocked it out of the park! Zachary has a great voice, and did an amazing job with Tyler's character. Andi, she's a pro, and everything she narrates is flawless. Andi is one of my favorite narrators.

    The Hot One was fabulous, and my credit was well spent. The story is dialogue driven with no wasted words or unnecessary description. Each scene gets right to the point, and more importantly to all the steamy bits! I was torn between four and five stars, but met in the middle with a 4.5. (No cliffhangers, and of course a sweet & steamy HEA.) I'm looking forward to seeing what Blakely brings to audio next!

    "Delicious HOTness"

    What delicious hotness! Like all other books by Blakely, this story was an absolutely entertaining audiobook. With well-developed characters, well-crafted dialogue, a well-paced plot and well-timed sexy time, this love story is deliciously engaging. Of course, how could it not with an amazing author and a fabulous narrator?

    While the author promotes these books as stand-alones, they are related and I'd recommend reading them in order for maximum enjoyment. This group of friends and aquaintances are great!

    I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site. Check out my other reviews!

    "The hottest one!!"
    If you could sum up The Hot One in three words, what would they be?

    Forgiveness, honesty, love.


    What other book might you compare The Hot One to and why?

    I can't think of any other book that would be similar to The Hot One.


    What about Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt ’s performance did you like?

    OMG Zachary Webber nailed it with this audiobook. I love his voice, it's smooth and sexy and brings Tyler to live. I loved everything about his performance. And Andi Arndt has a beautiful soft voice perfect for Delayne. Both narrations complemented each other. I loved their inflexions for all the characters, Zachary made a great voice for Delayne and Andi made a great voice for Tyler.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and not only once but multiple times. I listened to this audiobook 3 times and I loved it more every time.


    Any additional comments?

    The Hot One was a beautiful second chance love story. It was amazing. I loved Tyler and Delayne, I loved the cameos of the other characters from other books, especially Carly, that kid is smart and funny and super cool. But what I loved the most was the sexiness in the story, the chemistry of the characters, how they re-started their relationship and fell back in love because they were right for each other. <br/><br/>Another awesome audiobook by Lauren Blakely. Can't wait for more.

    "The Queen of Rom Com does it again!!"

    Lauren Blakely is the Rom Com Queen I mean seriously this women is a writing machine!! Tyler is HOT, he is confident and he jumps in with both feet!! Delaney is sassy, fun and perfect for Tyler! I love a second chance romance the best! While I felt like this was the least steamy of Lauren's books I still loved it so much! I liked was that Tyler was actually a little quirky instead of Delaney, that was a fun twist! I loved how they had a lot of differences but also a lot in common, that makes them seem like a real couple. The way they just eased right back into a relationship was sweet especially since she didn't make it easy for him to get his second chance. I also loved all the cameo's from the other men in her books, it was like a little visit with old friends!

    This cover is perfect, Tyler can strip for me any day ;)
    Great second chance romance <3

    Loved the narration! Zachary Webber was perfect for Tyler!! Great casting choice!

    "A charming 2nd chance romance listen!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Hot One the most enjoyable?

    Zachary Webber's fantastic narration and Tyler's determination to win back his college sweetheart, Delaney after a random chance reunion years later.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hot One?

    Their make-out session near Delaney's mailbox area was pretty memorable. ;)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Tyler's Mea Culpa / grand gesture at Delaney's spa is my favorite scene.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was so Team Tyler when he proposed but didn't get the reaction he was hoping for exactly.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to give a special shout out to Beth, my book buddy who gifted this audiobook to me for my April Fool's Day birthday. We buddy read/listened to this one together. Books are always even more enjoyable for me when I buddy read them. ♥

    If you could sum up The Hot One in three words, what would they be?

    I love her writing and sexual scenes, but this one seemed kinda phoned in. I think she could have done a better job making it more believable that he actually knew she was Ms Right with a more plausible reason for their first break up.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lauren Blakely before, how does this one compare?

    It's just OK. It was kinda funny too.


    What does Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Their character intonations are good!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her getting pissed sat his proposal. That moved me to irritation with her!

    Romantic, Funny, Sexy


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tyler because it takes a lot to realize your mistakes and do your best to make amends and get it right like it should have been from the start.Y


    Have you listened to any of Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have and I love them both dearly.<br/>Very talented people who are clearly born to do this and I enjoy their performances every time.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed reading this book and now after listening to the audio it's even better because of the emotions narrators put in their work and make the book more alive.<br/><br/>Lauren Blakely knows what her readers wants and she happily gives it to them.<br/>Well done!<br/><br/>
