About Nobody Does It Better:
Some women are just forbidden. Like - off the top of my head - my sister's lifelong best friend. Sis has made it patently clear that Vanessa is hands-off, as in keep my ladies' man paws far away from her clever, go-getter best friend who's ready for the real deal. 

That should be an easy guideline to follow, except Vanessa is deliciously flirty, easy to talk to, and laughs at my jokes. Translation - my libido has been craving her many, many years. So many that we might have stolen a kiss or two. Can you say pent-up, crazy, raw desire? That's exactly what we're both feeling when the storm of the century hits and it's 10 inches of snow with Vanessa and me trapped in a cabin all night long.... 

The trouble is, Vanessa isn't interested in my playboy ways, and I have one night to convince her that I'm the real deal.

Nobody Does It Better Than Lauren Blakley!

Oh Lauren Blakely Audiobook fans are going to love this one, It's things like that shows the audiobook lovers that Lauren love us! In Nobody Does it Better we get a couple of novellas for side characters from past books. I know for me it's like stopping by for a visit with old friends. All of these novellas are short, sweet and sexy.

Nobody Does it Better is Vanessa and Shaw's story from the Lucky in Love series. After finishing Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor I was dying for their story and I was not disappointed. This was just as hot as I expected even if they are stuck in a snow storm. As always, the drama is low and the chemistry high because Vanessa and Shaw have been trying to ignore the pull for what seems like forever, until they just can't resist anymore! The narration for this novella was amazing because well Joe Arden and Erin Mallon with cameos from Carly Robins, Savannah Peachwood, Virgina Rose and Jason Clark, does it get any better than that??

Next up we have Once Upon a Red Hot Kiss which is Macy & Kirby's romance from the Heartbreakers Series. I loved the Heartbreakers series so much so I was beyond happy to get to dive back into that world for a little while. Macy and Kirby are sweet and were great side characters that deserved their own novella! Listening to Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke bring these characters to life was perfect.

Then comes Too Good To Be True, this is a novella for Come as You Are. In this one we have Olivia and Herb, Olivia is Flynn's sister. It's been awhile since I listened to Come As You Are and after listening to this story, I think I need a re-listen very soon! I enjoyed Herb and Olivia's story very much! Narrated by RC Bray and Andi Arndt, both amazing narrators and they fit these characters perfectly.

Last but never least we have Caught Up in Her finally on audio! This is a novella from the Caught Up in Love series. This is a best friend's sister love story that just had to happen. I loved this book when I read it but I adored it when I listened to it. Adding the narration from Jason Clarke and Carly Robins added another star to this one for me.

As always, I loved this entire audiobook because...well... Lauren is my spirit animal! She knows exactly what I need, giving us stories with very low drama, very high chemistry, mature characters and lots of steam! She is one of my favorite authors. I used to read her books before I got into audio but once I listened to an audiobook of hers I knew I'd found my author soul mate ;)

This Audiobook is Jam Packed with Goodies!

Overall 5 stars
Performance 5+ stars
All Novellas 4 stars

I love novellas because they can be enjoyed on their own as a quick and fun read, or they can add another layer to an existing story by giving a deeper history or perspective. Not only do listeners get the novella Nobody Does it Better on this audiobook, but they also get FOUR additional novellas as well! This audiobook is jam packed with extras! Nobody Does It Better is a sweet, low drama, and sexy best friend's brother novella. I appreciated that there wasn't a lot of angst or drama in this one and it let the story really focus on the connection between Shaw and Vanessa. And connect they did! ;) I loved hearing Joe Arden and Erin Mallon bring Shaw and Vanessa's story to life. Joe Arden is perfectly playful and sexy as Shaw and he fit the character so well. The special narrator cameos for the Book Club Ladies was a great treat as well!

The fun doesn't stop at the conclusion of Shaw and Vanessa's story though! Next, listeners get the novella Once Upon a Red Hot Kiss, which tells the story of Kirby and Macy, who we met in the Heartbreakers series. Jason Clarke narrates with Erin Mallon this time and oh my his voice is damn sexy! It's a prequel novella to Once Upon A Sure Thing and is a short and sweet friends to lovers romance.

Next up is Too Good To Be True which is a prequel novella to Come As You Are and tells the story of Herb and Olivia. It's narrated by Andi Arndt and RC Bray and is an instalove romance that has our hero and heroine falling fast and hard. These two connect so quickly (how cute was their shared love of puzzles/games?!) that it leaves them wondering if what they feel really is too good to be true.

Caught Up in Her comes next and is the prequel/backstory to Bryan and Kat's story from Caught Up in Us. This best friend's little sister romance tells the story of how these two met, shared a glorious summer together, and how it all led to heartbreak. Jason Clarke and Carly Robins were outstanding and really made me want to find out what happens when Bryan and Kat meet again 5 years later in Caught Up in Us.

Listeners get a final treat with Little Big Rock, which is a prequel novella to Big Rock and features Charlotte's POV. It's a fun novella that gives more backstory to Charlotte and Spencer's friendship/relationship. It's a delight to listen to and has Andi Arndt, Sebastian York, Joe Arden, and Erin Mallon all performing.

You really can't beat this all star cast of narrators! There's a novella for everyone and this really is a treat for your ears and is certainly worth a credit!

Love Love Love

This book and the series about three best friends is the bomb. Great characters, great narrator's and dont forget the extras at the end. Lauren's books on audio are the only way to go for me now I listen while I drive for work and the humor with the romance keep me going in a silent car, I'm no longer bored.

Loved these fun, sweet, and steamy novellas!

Lauren Blakely is treating us to not only Shaw and Vanessa's story in Nobody Does it Better, but she is also revisiting other couples in the Blakely Universe that we wanted to see have their own HEA as well! She has given us FOUR additional fun and sexy novellas, performed by many of the super talented narrators we all love! So grab your ear buds and enjoy catching up with these great secondary characters that we met previously, as they get their own hot and steamy romance!

~ Nobody Does It Better ~ What does it take to finally make a move on the forbidden person you've watched from afar, and even shared unforgettable 'secret' kisses with, for years? You'll have to pick up this fun, sweet, and steamy novella to find out, and you'll be so happy you did! I have been looking forward to Shaw and Vanessa's story, and it was everything I wanted, and so much more! After watching their lingering glances and flirty banter over the last couple of books, I could not have been happier with their sweet and steamy romance! There is so much to love about their journey, from meddling friends, family, and book club ladies, to Blakely's signature banter, and the explosive passion that has been building to a fevered pitch, this novella has it all. Joe Arden, and Erin Mallon did a fantastic job bringing Shaw and Vanessa to life. I love their chemistry, comedic timing, and perfect inflections that make this story so hypnotic and seductive. Add in the special cameo appearances from Carly Robins, Savannah Peachwood, Virgina Rose and Jason Clark and you have audio gold!
I loved everything about this quick listen and can't get enough of these residents of Lucky Falls in Blakely's fabulous Lucky in Love series!

The bonus novellas have us witnessing Macy and Kirby's blossoming romance over Valentines Day in Once Upon a Red Hot Kiss. We first met them in the Heartbreaker series, Kirby is Ally's brother and Macy is her best friend. Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke were fabulous bringing these white hot, and deliciously dirty lovers to life.

Next is Too Good To Be True, featuring Olivia and Herb from Come as You Are. They are so perfect for each other, as they discover their shared love of puzzles, games and sizzling kisses. But could their insane chemistry, and insta love, be too good to be true? I loved the outstanding narration and delivery by both RC Bray and Andi Arndt.

The next novella is Caught Up in Her, the prequel to Caught Up in Us. I read this book when it was released and love experiencing Bryan and Kat's romance again! Carly Robins and Jason Clarke were perfect as Kat and Bryan and did an amazing job bringing this sweet forbidden romance to life.

Last but not least is Charlotte's pov in Little Big Rock, the prequel to Big Rock. I loved listening to the events in Charlotte's life that lead her to agree with Spencer's proposal and performed flawlessly by Andi Arndt, Sebastian York, Joe Arden, and Erin Mallon.

This audio book has a little of everything! Lauren Blakely's captivating story-lines and characters, along with these amazing narrators make this a stellar aural experience!

It was such a treat listening. All the hotness!

First, the narration by Joe Arden and Erin Mallon is amazing! They have a great way of bringing the characters to life, and I love how they capture the silliness, heat, longing, and eventually love that is Kirby and Macy In the audiobook of Nobody Does it Better, not only does Lauren Blakely give you the great HEA with the wonderful buildup she’s known for, but she goes and gives you a mélange of equally awesome novellas with a cornucopia of some of the best voices in audio narrating: Once Upon a Red Hot KISS, Too Good to Be True, Caught Up in Her, and A Little Big Rock! These stories have all the feels, and plenty of window fogging steaminess.

Lauren is a true artist, and I love how she just mixes things up. She could very well write a few popular tropes and still be very successful, but she doesn’t. Other than an HEA, you just don’t know what you’ll get in the next LB book you read, but you can’t wait to find out!

Heads up, you might want to have BOB close by with this bundle. 🔥🔥🔥

Lauren is Queen LB the narrator whisperer

Nobody Does it Better in audio with the bonus novellas is the reason we all love Lauren Blakely! Who else would give us all of our favorite secondary characters stories all in one place! Lauren that's who! Not only is she my favorite author, Lauren Blakely's audios are my favorites. She knows exactly how to write romance, pick fantastic narrators and make us fall in love!
Nobody Does it Better is Lauren Blakely's newest sexy, fun, sweet novella. We know both Shaw and Vanessa from Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor. Shaw is Perri's brother and Vanessa is her best friend. They've known each other since they were kids and Perri made it very clear that Vanessa is off limits. Shaw has had a thing for Vanessa since high school, but because he loves his sister, he never made a move. Until he hears she has a date. It's now or never time. And it seems that fate is on his side when they get trapped by a snowstorm in a cabin. Together. Shaw knows he has to make his move and Vanessa seems overly flirty and very responsive. Will their one night of passion prove to be the turning point to their happily ever after? I loved this story! I knew Shaw and Vanessa's story was going to be fun and sexy! Shaw is a big goof ball, but he can be serious when it counts. Vanessa is smart, stylish, gorgeous and is the perfect match for Shaw. I was great seeing Gabe, Arden, Derek and Perri again too! Again, Lauren gives us what we want! Overall, it's sexy, fun, sweet, and full of heart! Joe and Erin are two of my favorite narrators and they are perfect for Shaw and Vanessa.

Once Upon a Red Hot Kiss is a Macy and Kirby's story. They were secondary characters from the Heartbreakers series and I loved them and I'm so glad they got a story. It's short, sweet and oh so sexy! Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon were so fantastic. Jason's voice just gives me major tingles and he was the perfect Kirby.

Too Good to Be True is Olivia and Herb's story from Come as You Are! Olivia is Flynn's sister and I just loved her. Herb and Olivia's story is fun, sexy and hopeful! RC Gray and Andi Arndt were perfect for this novella.


Caught Up in Her is a prequel to Lauren's Caught Up in Love series. I loved this book when I read it and Jason and Carly reminded me why! The perfect nibble to Bryan and Kat's story!

Fun, flirty and sexy!

When it comes to forbidden romances nobody does them better than Lauren Blakely. I'm such a sucker for the whole best friend's sibling trope and I was just chomping at the bit for Vanessa and Shaw's story. This story left me with such a smile on my face. I laughed and swooned and definitely had to fan myself from the heat these two generated.

I loved getting to know more about Vanessa. She's fun, sweet and loyal-almost to a fault. She's the kind of woman everyone wants to be friends with. I loved seeing her put herself out there and own up to feelings she tried to ignore.

Shaw? Well, Shaw just made me grin. He's funny but has a sexy streak a mile wide. I could definitely picture him front and center on a fireman's calendar with a smolder, then laughing it up with the photographer after. I liked him and really respected him. Watching him finally go after Vanessa made me cheer.

I loved watching these two dance around each other. Their banter was was fun and flirty and the longing between them to be something more was so palpable. I would have cheered when they finally acted on their feelings but I was too busy fanning myself. Their sexy times were, well, sexy. Their relationship outside the bedroom was just as important to them and I enjoyed watching them figure out if they could really have it all with each other.

Catching up with friends from other books always makes me grin. The book club ladies in this book? Well, I hope to be half as fun as they are when I'm their age. I just adored them. It was nice to catch up with Arden and Perri and their men as well. I'd like to live in this book world and just be friends with all these characters!

The writing and pacing in this book just flowed seamlessly. I was hooked from the very first page and didn't want it to end-even though I read it in one sitting because I didn't want to put it down. That's what this Author's writing does for me. It creates the perfect escape.

The audio of this book is fantastic! If you aren't an audio fan, I urge you to give this book a listen. The performances were just spot on. I love how these narrators work together to deliver this story! Also? There's novellas with the audio that you WON'T want to miss-I'm still re-listening to them and swooning all over again. Once Upon A Red Hot Kiss was performed to perfection! So very hot and sexy! Too Good To Be True left me grinning; I think the narrators nailed it here. I loved R.C. Bray as Herb!!! This story was just fun for me to hear and I couldn't stop smiling....and wanting Herb to eat pancakes.

Last but not least, we got to listen to Caught Up In Her. This book is just a special book to me-it gave me one of my very first Blakely boyfriends. Jason Clark absolutely brought him to life for me! I loved finally hearing this on audio.

I loved every moment of these books. I'd highly recommend these audios!

Nobody Does It Better than LB

Lauren Blakely is an incredible author. I love how characters overlap from stories, so its like catching up with friends. An added plus is that books are standalone listens. Like a cherry on a sundae, the narrators are top notch and only add to my enjoyment. This particular book is comprised of several shorts that only make me love the author's writing style even more. The imagery and heat are exactly what I was wanting. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrators.

Blakely Definitely Does it Better

Ever wondered what happened to some of those side characters that you read about in books? Well look no further because this little book is full of them.

It may be a short read but it is crammed full of delicious content!

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon narrating are as perfect together as strawberries and cream, and a few cameo's are sprinkled throughout to give that little sugar on the top.

Included in this audio are an extra few Novellas to whet your appetite.

Lauren always delivers with her audios as she is a listener herself, so she knows what sounds good, and believe me, this one is good!
