#BlogHop “The Hot One Top 5” by Lauren Blakely

From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely, comes a hot new standalone second chance romance…THE HOT ONE!


THE HOT ONE - RDL teaser 2My musings…

Ever since I can remember, I have had a love of words.  The power of a few syllables strung together never ceases to amaze me. Words can conjure up a range of emotions, rally people to act, and even give people an escape, a brief reprieve, from reality.

Lauren Blakely’s words always do this for me. She makes me laugh and swoon, and her novels always provide me with that escape, but more than that, I always find a little commentary on life and love that resonates with me as a reader.  So without further ado, here are my top 5 quotes from The Hot One:

  1. “We were the night sky and the stars, loud thunder and crackling lightning, and Stratocaster and a kickass amp.”
  2. “Because he kisses me like it’s the only thing on earth he wants to do. Like I’m the best thing he’s ever touched.  He makes me believe that no man has ever kissed a woman with such intensity, such passion, such desire.”
  3. “This is the true second chance. Not the one I leaped too hard at this morning. But a real one – a do-over that’s not abut fixing the past, or erasing mistakes, but one that’s about forgiveness and moving on.”
  4. “The world is full pf pricks and selfish fuckers and far too many man-children.  Then you’ve got guys who are so goddamn self-absorbed you wonder if they were raised by coddlers, and then you’ver got men who have so little fucking backbone they can’t wipe their own ass..You’re not any of those, Tyler.  You’re a man, and you behave like a man.  The number one rule that most men today forget is this – don’t be an asshole.  The world is full of assholes. Be a man”
  5. “Even though we don’t know what tomorrow holds, I love all our todays.”

THE HOT ONE - cover Synopsis:

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 . . .?
