Publisher's Summary

When the invitation arrived, it detailed the rules of the masquerade - no names, no identities.

I set one more - find a most wicked man for one night. The kind who'll bring me deliciously naughty pleasure in dark corners.

But as the clock ticks to midnight, he finds me, whisks me away to a secret alcove, and delivers all that dirty bliss and then some.

We make arrangements for another secret rendezvous before I rush out of the ball.

But fate has other plans, since I see my most wicked man the next morning. Because that man is the billionaire owner of the hotel across the Strip from mine.

My rival. My enemy.

We vie for business every second of every day, so the last thing I can do is let him in my bed at night.

I give in one final time, in a daring, risqué game of chance, and then I vow to resist.

And that's what I do every time I see him, every time I get to know the brilliant, mercurial man who wants a piece of my business.

Until the night he ups the stakes.

And I have no choice but to see his bet and raise it.

Performed by Joe Arden, Emma Wilder, and Shane East, One Exquisite Touch is a sexy rivals-to-lovers stand-alone, rich with masquerades, billionaires, and forbidden trysts!

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫ HOT HOT HOT

WOW this takes me back the to dirtier days of Lauren Blakely books and takes the award for hottest book yet!! I loved how open and unashamed these characters are about their kinks. Sage & Cole are competition at work but the chemistry between them is everything. I really enjoyed the work banter and I loved all the dirty talk and seriously sexy scenes. This book has a perfect balance of story and sex in my opinion. I'm a sucker for Manège so I knew this book would be for me. I also enjoyed the build up and sneak peeks into the next books in the After Dark line of books.. I love a great Rom-Com but I need a little dark and dirty sometimes too and Lauren Blakely is giving me some of everything I need this year. Keep them coming!!!! The narration was fun, Emma Wilder, Joe Arden, Shane East & Wesleigh Siobhan all did a good job.

Lauren Blakely has a wonderful mind!!!

This story is excellent!!! I know... I know... I say that a lot about Lauren Blakely’s books, but damn if it isn’t true!!! She has a way of weaving tales that make you want to experience everything the characters experience with them!! Cole has a new hotel in Vegas. It’s right across the street from the hotel that Sage owns with her sister. They don’t know each other at the beginning of the book. They meet at a charity masquerade ball... and the tow of them along with Coles best friend, Daniel have an encounter that leaves them wanting more! Daniel is a matchmaker... and Cole and Sage are his targets!! He doesn’t mind being included, but he knows that Sage is what Cole needs.... This is a great story! I loved reading it and wanted much, much more!! These narrators.... Emma Wilder, Joe Arden, Shane East, and Wesleigh Siobhan... are fantastic! Joe Arden is one of my favorites anyway... I love his voice... and the teaser for the book he wrote with Lauren Blakely is too cute for words!!!

ANOTHER PREDICTABLY AWESOME LISTEN

Lauren’s books are always predictably brilliant, they always have predictably delicious storylines with predictably charming, sweet sassy heroines and sexy alpha heroes and the chemistry between them is always predictably thrilling, highly charged and banter-fuelled. BUT THIS AUDIOBOOK.. wow, this sexy, hot, steamy ménage between rival hotel owners Sage and best friends Cole and Daniel, well, it takes sizzling chemistry to a whole new level of melt-your-pants off moments. Sage wasn’t prepared for the force that was Cole and Daniel together, with their dirty mouths, wicked suggestions and skilled practiced moves.. and phewee neither was I!! However, it was Cole’s swoon-worthy charm, drool-worthy charisma and sexy character that broadened the lucky lady’s vanilla sexual appetite and stole her heart. WORTH A CREDIT? Yes it’s a smouldering sexy well-paced listen and the triple POV hot storyline was deliciously brought to life by the very talented Emma, Joe and Shane.

Wow!!!

Lauren Blakely amazes me with One Exquisite Touch! This is the hottest book by her that I've listened to. Sage & Cole are full of kinks and competition and chemistry. The banter was so much fun. Emma Wilder, Joe Arden, Shane East and Wesleigh Siobhan all brought the characters to life. I fully enjoyed this listen and am looking forward to more in this line.

Hot, hotter, Joe/Emma/Shane

Whew Lauren, you knocked it out if the park with that one 👏🏼 It so was meant to be narrated by Emma, Joe and Shane. I still feel like it's a hot, humid summer day after listening to this. But Joe was just something else. That deep, raspy whispers still have me tingling! And that last bit ➡️ #HTGL - was EVERYTHING.

H-O-T

Sage and Cole’s story is beyond hot and sexy, just like Vegas! This enemies/competitors to lovers story is Lauren Blakely’s hottest one yet! These two may be off limits, but they make the perfect pair in business and in the bedroom. When both listening and reading, I found myself needing a fan and a cold glass of water, so be aware where you’re reading. Things may get too hot to handle!

✨Extravagant and Exquisite!✨

I loved the story of Sage, Cole and Daniel. I think many women have fantasized about being with two men, and this story brings that fantasy to life! Sage trusts Cole to lead her down this exquisite road with Daniel and they open her up to the extravagant world of threesomes and fulfill her fantasy.

5 Stars for One Exquisite Touch!

Sage is a strong businesswoman running her hotel with her sister Ivy. Cole and Daniel are the new guys in town running a rival hotel. After a chance meeting Sage, Cole and even Daniel open their eyes to new possibilities and feelings. It's so much more than just an amazingly sexy story. It shows strong characters dealing with their own emotional issues and hang ups as well as being able to let their hair down and become someone else for a while. The narration really amped up the absolute hotness of this book. Emma is the standout with her performance as Sage. Truly outstanding. She is so good at playing these strong and confident types of women, plus her male voices are just as hot as the guys themselves. Joe and Shane were perfectly cast as Cole and Daniel. Who else can make whispering as sexy as these two can? Between the guys and Emma, I have no idea how I survived this book. It's easily one of the hottest books I've listened to in a while. I really enjoyed the epilogues. Eliza's made me cry it was so perfect. Daniel's made me want more Daniel. The sneak peak for How to Get Lucky was awesome! I don't think Joe could be any more excited about his and Lauren's upcoming book! I am as excited as Joe is!

Steamy, emotional, entertaining, classic Blakely

Absolutely loved this second book in The Extravagant Series from Lauren Blakely. Sage and Cole are HOT, HOT, HOT, and Daniel gives it just that bit of extra spice. I loved that Sage is a strong, independent professional woman that is looking to take control of her love life and explore her more adventurous side. After a chance meeting with Cole and Daniel, while incognito at a ball, Sage is on a journey to discover how far she is willing to push the envelope of love, lust and physical intimacy. What Sage doesn't know is that Cole and Daniel are her new competition, having just opened a brand new luxury hotel on the Vegas strip to complete with hers. One thing that Sage didn't expect was the absolute combustible chemistry that she would have with Cole, and how it is complemented by a strong emotional connection as well. Sage and Cole just click immediately, and they both need that organic and natural connection in their lives right now. While neither of them are looking for a relationship right now, they can't ignore how right the connection feels and how they fit. This is definitely one of the steamier Lauren Blakely books out there. There is a lot of banter and a lot of emotion, hallmarks of Lauren Blakely's books, too. If you pick this up in audio, Emma Wilder, Joe Arden and Shane East do a fantastic job of bringing all of the emotion and steam to life. Emma, in particular, is great in this book and she bring so much earnestness, emotion, soul searching and longing to the part. She also does a great British accent and male voice, and transitions seamlessly among the characters. There is also an epilogue narrated by Wesleigh Siobhan that is very touching.

I am woman, hear me roar

Just so you know, when the synopsis says, a sexy rivals to lovers standalone, they are understating the word sexy,p. The story is sex personified. Hot, hot, hot! Scorching. Sizzling. Burning. Even now, having finished the book, I could combust just thinking about it. Rival Vegas casino/hotel owners Cole Donavon and Sage Carmichael meet during a masquerade ball and share a sexy tryst with Cole’s best friend and business associate sexy Englishman Daniel Stewart. Both Sage and Cole have been hurt before, yet when they come together the past is forgotten. No mind games (there are plenty of bedroom games), a lot of kink, but just bear in mind the advice given to Sage from her best friend. There is no shame in sex unless you bring it there. No shame in desire or wanting, as long as it’s all consensual, and just so you know Sage had all the power, all the time. I loved her. Let me also add that Cole is one hell of a dirty talker, something that lends itself extremely well to audio and Joe Arden’s sexy as sin voice. Add in Emma Wilder and Shane East and I was in audiobook heaven. Emma Wilder narrates Cole and Daniel’s comments in Sage’s POV perfectly, I love her male drawl, it is soooo good. A super sexy, fun read.

Wow, wow and more wow!!!!!

OMG! This book was the perfect. Lauren Blakely has out done herself with this book. It's forbidden, a little or a lot filthy, sweet, loving, accepting and scorching hot. The narration was out of this world good. Emma, Joe and Shane literally made me feel included in the story, bringing it to life in the best way. By far one of my best reads of 2020 so far.
