Publisher's Summary

From the NYT best-selling author of Mister O, comes a sexy new standalone romance.

Let me count the ways why falling into forbidden love is not my wisest move:

1.She works with me every single day. Did I mention she's gorgeous, sweet, kind, and smart?

2.She works in my home. Playing with my five-year-old daughter. Teaching my little girl. Cooking for my princess. Which means...

3.She's the nanny. And that makes her completely off-limits. But it doesn't stop me from wanting her. All of her.

The other nannies in this city don't call him the Sexy One for nothing. My boss, the amazingly wonderful single father to the girl I take care of every day is ridiculously hot, like movie star levels with those arms, and those eyes, and that body. Not to mention the way he dotes on his little girl melts me all over. But what really makes my knees weak are the times when his gaze lingers on me. In secret. When no one else is around. I can't risk my job for a chance at something more, can I? But I don't know how to resist him much longer either.

    "Maybe it's me but what are these reviews all about"

    The mind babble takes the majority of the story told. I have 2 hours left and absolutely NOTHING has taken place to show there is an actual storyline with things happening. The characters seem in love already as the book started so the excitement of the chase is eliminated as fast. A complete waist of my credit.

    Story
    "Oh Simon, my Simon!"
    Would you listen to The Sexy One again? Why?

    YES!!! Over and over and over again!!! In fact, three times wouldnt be enough to satiate my endless love for Simon!!! I loved this book the first time I read it, and after I listened to this audiobook, I was crazy and madly and endlessly in love with Simon and Abby, because seriously Sebastian York and Ani Arndt made an spectacular job with this audiobook.


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

    There were so many awesome moments in this book that will be forever in my heart, for example the first time they made love, it was tender, romantic and very sexy, or their first date at the movies, it felt like they were teenagers *sigh*, or when Abby found Simon and little Hayden playing a tea party *ovaries exploded* This book has so many awesome moments to love and cherish for ever <3


    What about Andi Arndt and Sebastian York ’s performance did you like?

    For starters, I loved this book has a dual narration. Andi and Sebastian were a great team narrating Abby and Simon. The sweetness in Andi's voice was a perfect match with the strengh in Sebastian's performance, both inflections suited perfectly with Abby's and Simon's personalities.


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

    Yes! It's a short audiobook, well paced, great pronunciations and beautiful and sexy voices. The audio version of The Sexy One added more perfection to the original version, and like I said before, I want to repeat it once and again until the end of time.


    Any additional comments?

    I've loved every man Lauren has written, since Bryan, passing through Davis Milo, Clay Nichols, Colin Sloan, Nick Hammer, all of Lauren's book boyfriends have been amazing, but Simon, oh my god, Simon is perfect!! He's the best dad ever, the best lover ever and he's sweet, kind, respectful and everything! <3

    "Such a Sweet Love Story!"

    I have to say I adore this book!!! It is such a sweet love story and believe it or not...NO DRAMA...i didn't even know that was possible in romance. This is a must buy author for me because all of her books leave me with a happy heart. I love her writing style and all of her stories. Simon & Abby's story is sweet and these two just make perfect sense. I loved Simon, he is a single dad who puts his daughter 1st and he is adult enough to have an amicable relationship with his ex for their child. Abby is the nanny and she loves his daughter. She also has great morals and sticks to her beliefs even if it might make things difficult. In the end I stayed up all night (on a work night no less) finishing this audiobook because it was just that good. This book would have been great as an ebook but add Sebastian York & Andi Arndt narrating the audiobook and it was even better.

    Keep them coming Lauren, I will devour them all <3

    "Absolutely Smitten"

    I don't know who fell harder... Abby or me. Seriously, Simon made me swoon. Like other books by Blakely, this was such an entertaining audiobook. With quirky characters, flirty dialogue and a fast-paced plot, this story is highly 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're inter-related and I'd recommend reading them in order for maximum enjoyment. I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site. Check out my other reviews!

    Just like Big rock and Mr O Lauren Blakeley gives us another swoonwothy character with a HEA ending.
    As if this book couldn't have get any better...
    audible adding Sebastian York's voice to it made for one yummy listen.
    Definitely worth my time.

    "THE PERFECT TRIFECTA.. AUTHOR+NARRATION+STORY"

    I don't usually buy short stories BUT when they're written by the very talented Lauren Blakely and expertly narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt then there's simply no doubt in my mind that it'll be worth the credit. Simon and Abby's sweet love story didn't disappoint.. because there was humor, heart, heat and it's packed with tender romantic feels as Simon, the perfect single Dad, fights his 7 month constant attraction to his daughter's trusted and very caring Nannie. And Abby, for 7 long months, has watched this Adonis, this perfect Dad, this caring friendly man interact with his sweet daughter and she's silently drooled and dreamt of what could never be.

    But, never say never, because when they're unexpectedly left alone the chemistry charges the air around them and it only took one brush of their lips to detonate the explosion of suppressed feelings. Which resulted in tearing down boundaries and creating new rules.. new rules that morphed and melded into a loving new family of three. There was no angst in this lovely listen.. just emotions, togetherness, chemistry.. and some crazy hot sex.

    Worth a credit? When it comes to a tried and trusted Author's book there's no hesitation, no doubts and no question that YES it's going to be creditworthy... and it was.

    "SEXY PERFECTION"

    I listened to this in one day, non-stop. I loved the characters, the narration, and the overall sweetness of the story. All that said, it is one hot son-of-gun! The chemistry between Simon and Abbie just built and built and it was utter perfection, and so well written, I was hooked. This one is sure to get you a bit hot under the collar, make your heart swoon and melt, and do all the other mushy stuff in between. I loved it!

    "LB, AA & SebYo? One-click combo! 5 huge stars!"

    This audiobook has all the high points for what I want in a non-drama listen.

    1. Funny amazing author - Lauren Blakely - check
    2. Amazing high quality and super sexy narration - Andi Arndt and #kingofauralsex Sebastian York - check
    3. Strong, sensitive and sexy AF hero - Simon - check
    4. Likable, strong-minded, funny heroine - Abby - check
    5. Realistic plot with no insanely dramatic WTF moments - check!

    Lauren Blakely has become a rapid fire machine for churning out witty, well-written, sexy, laugh-out-loud hilarious books and the Sexy One is another jewel to add to the crown. This extended New York City "family" is quickly becoming some of my all time favorites.

    Andi Arndt and Sebastian York? They always guarantee a five star performance and make this type of hilarious and sexy story come to life in all things aural! LOVE LOVE LOVE! #auralfixation

    Sometimes you just want a sweet and uncomplicated love story! Simon and Abby had the chemistry to drive this story without cluttering it up with road blocks to the HEA😊
    And may I say, the narration was superb!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's funny and engaging. The characters are well drawn and very likeable.


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

    I can't pick one out but of course Sebastion York could read a grocery list and make it sound interesting.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Probably the one at the swimming pool near the beginning of the book when Abby has taken Hayden for a diving lesson.


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

    Yes, although it's too long for that!

    "Worth buying for the cover and voices alone"

    A light, easy, fun, sexy read. Told in dual POV, the story follows nanny Abby who works for super sexy Simon (looking after his adorably cute 5 year old daughter Hayden). Both Abby and Simon have undeniable attraction to each other, an attraction that they are not willing to act upon. I mean how cliché 'falling for the nanny/boss'. Neither one wants to ruin the fantastic relationship they have together as employer/employee. However the inevitable happens and they have to deal. A wonderfully enjoyable read.
