Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases - a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with as well as way less experience in the dating department than the average 30-year-old. It doesn't help that she has Asperger's and that French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. She decides that she needs lots of practice - with a professional - which is why she hires escort Michael Phan.

I loved this book! I could relate to Stella and her little quirks. At times, I could really feel the emotions that the author was describing. My husband and son both have Aspergers. Even though it was Stella who was autistic it this story, I think it gave me a better insight on what one with this condition goes through, when it comes to matters of the heart. Thank you for writing such a story.

The first rule of football - don't screw with a streak. My career is finally looking up, and I'm leading a new pro team down the field every Sunday. No way will I mess with that. But when I meet the most stunning and captivating woman I've ever seen, I tell myself one night will have to be enough. But it's not. And now I can't get her out of my mind. Even when I'm playing. Even when I need to focus. Even when I'm on the hottest streak of my life. And it turns out she's not just some random woman I met. She works for the team.

Once again, Lauren has written a wonderfully sweet and sexy romance! Drew & Dani have some smokin’ hot chemistry! I really liked it when they held hands in the popcorn bucket!🤝🍿😍

Unfortunately, the narration didn’t hit the mark for me this time. I hope it can be redone by some of Lauren’s usual narrators (Sebastian York & Andi Arndt or Joe Arden & Erin Mallon).

Sullivan and Will are as close as two friends can be. Growing up in the system forced them to rely on each other, and they've become accustomed to sharing everything - including women. Now they're ready for more. To find love. To start a family. To see the dreams they've shared since childhood come true. Apparently I tick off every box on their list - brains, beauty, and sass. I never hesitate to put both men in their places - which they find sexy as hell. One problem, I'm a traditional girl, with traditional values - one man, one woman, till death do us part - kind of values.

Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better. That's why I'm quite a catch - good, hard, loaded, and wait for it...I'm ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she's in town.

Lauren Blakely has done it again! She has found the perfect recipe for writing rom coms! Patrick & Mia know what they want, but have a little issue with communication and assuming. You know what they say about assuming... Zeus also brings a great layer to the story. Makes me want to train my cats to walk on a leash.

I love how Lauren writes from the male POV, especially when Sebastian York is the narrator! I could listen to his voice all day! 😍 Give me more, please!!!

Being the younger sister of a Wind Dragons MC member isn't as great as you'd think it would be. I can't escape the details of my brother's exploits. No one tells me anything. Men who know who I am tend to stay away from me. And worst of all: The members of the MC are off-limits. When Arrow catches my eye, I make it my mission to make him happy again. When I fall head over heels in love with him, I just hope he will be there to catch me. And that my brother doesn't kill him....

There's one woman though who can break down his walls. Someone who knew him then. Who can reach inside to that heart he protects fiercely, because she's the only one he ever gave it to. When they collide, it's tender and savage, gentle and rough, and makes them both hungry for more of this electric, once-in-a-blue moon kind of sexual chemistry. But it's a battle of wills between Michael and the woman he loves, with words and emotions held close to the vest.

Uninhibited. Sarcastic. Confident. Beautiful. With a thriving photography career that allows her to travel all over the world and capture the hottest of men behind her camera lens, Cassie Phillips is the woman who can't be tamed. Adrenaline junkie. Jokester. Billionaire. Hot as sin. At six-foot-five, with muscles for days and that perfect, playful smile, Thatcher Kelly is the kind of man you don't want to deny. Wild for wild. Prank for prank. The two most unlikely of people may be the only ones to see that some personality traits only run skin deep.

The story is good but I had a very hard time believing that Jeremy York’s voice belongs to Thatch, who is described as being a burly 6’5” tall, 250 pound, rugby-playing lady’s man. In my humble opinion, I think Sebastian York would have been a better narrator for this story.

I've been told I have quite a gift. Hey, I don't just mean in my pants. I've got a big brain, too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing...until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard...place. Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy's smoking-hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man's got to do what a man's got to do.

They say Paris is always a good idea.... You know what I say? Paris would be a much better idea if I spoke the dang language. I can't even board the metro to visit the Louvre without ending up at the Moulin Rouge, and let's not even mention how I'll ever make it through a day at my new office. Fortunately my company hooks me up with my own personal translator. Ooh la la. Or should I say bloody hell? Because he's charming, witty, and British, and he brings the city to life for me.

Once again, I fell in love with Joy & Griffin as I followed their love story. This was my third time to listen to Wanderlust and I get something new each time. This time, I noticed all of the color Lauren Blakely used in the story. The pink door, Joy’s red hair and bandana, her blue curve-hugging dress, her emerald green bra & knickers, and I can’t leave out Griffin’s lavender macarons! Thank you, Lauren for bringing a little color to my life. 😘
