Publisher's Summary

A full-cast audiobook of a new stand-alone romance from number-one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely, performed by Andi Arndt, Dan Bittner, Jason Clarke, and Emma Wilder!

All I want for the holidays is the willpower to resist my brother’s sexy, charming, easy-on-the-eyes new business partner.

Instead, I'm stuck planning all the holiday parties with the one guy who makes me want to break my dating diet.

Who thought that was a good idea?

Oh, me. Yep, brilliant, strategic me who raised her hand and said yes I’d love to hang mistletoe with that hot former sports star. (Note to self: Mistletoe leads to toe-curling, knee-weakening kisses.)

And I’d love to get snowed in with the one guy I shouldn’t fall for. (Addendum to the note to self: You know exactly where eight inches of snow leads to. Ahem, eight inches.)

As long as I can make it through the holidays, I’ll be on my merry way, fa la la la la. But the holidays have a surprise for me.

This special production also includes a behind-the-scenes conversation with Andi Arndt and Dan Bittner, a blooper reel, and an exclusive sneak preview of Asking for a Friend, starring Andi Arndt, Jason Clarke, Zachary Webber, and Erin Mallon!

Sweet Instalove Holiday Novella

Overall 4.5 stars
Performance 5+ stars
Story 4 stars

This was a really sweet instalove holiday novella. Vaughn and Quinn were fantastic together and I loved their banter and chemistry. They were playful and sexy, but I appreciated their honesty with each other the most. They were mature adults that spoke openly about their wants and feelings and didn't let any surprises derail their growing connection. There's just enough drama to keep things interesting, but Special Delivery is a light and fun read that will get you in the holiday spirit. This little novella can be read as a standalone, but characters from Lauren Blakely's previous books do appear.

I'm not sure how Dan Bittner wasn't already on my radar, but he definitely is now! I loved his performance! His voice was so incredibly sexy and he was the perfect Vaughn. I really enjoyed him paired with Andi Arndt and you honestly cannot beat these full cast recordings. It's so awesome to have multiple narrators for all of the different characters. The excerpt from Overnight Service and the bonus holiday discussion between Andi and Dan at the end were great, but it was the blooper reel that stole the show for me. LOL I always enjoy the bonus material at the end of Lauren Blakely's audiobooks. I'm excited for Amy's story next!

4.5 Hot Holiday Stars!

Special Delivery is another signature Blakely sweet and sexy romance with a heartwarming holiday twist! This forbidden romance between Vaughn and Quinn is so much fun as we watch them try to resist each other. They both have had bad experiences in the love department, and are now on a hiatus from relationships. That is until Quinn's brother, and Vaughn's business partner, Josh, puts them together to plan their office holiday party. As they visit venues, they sample more than the items on the menu! Their flirty banter and scorching chemistry heats up their nights faster than you can say eggnog hot chocolate! They start a passionate affair with the plan that it will end after the holidays. But a holiday surprise might just change their plans! Vaughn is so sweet, playful, and sexy, and Quinn, who is a planner that hates surprises, but is so funny, and loving, are absolutely perfect for each other! Dan Bittner and Andi Arndt were wonderful as Vaughn and Quinn. This is my first time listening to Bittner and I totally swooned over his deep, gravely voice, and I will definitely check out more of his work! Bittner and Arndt were great together along with Jason Clarke, Emma Wilder as they all brought this fun & flirty, steamy holiday romance to life! I loved the bonus extras also!

I have to start by saying I love Vaughn and Quinn! These two were perfect from the start. Vaughn is exactly what I think all women would love to find in a man... at least I know I would!

This is a sweet and sexy quick holiday story.
We originally met this Quinn & Vaughn in Overnight Service so I was super happy to find out we were getting a story of there HEA and I'm always up for a feel good Christmas book so I knew I'd love this one from the very start. I also loved that it was so sweet it almost gave me cavities because that is what I expect from a Holiday novella but it also has the sexy steamy chemistry that I've come to expect from Lauren Blakely.

Everything about this audiobook seriously hit the spot for me! Not only did I love Vaughn, I loved him even more with Dan Bittner bringing him to life! Andi Arndt is as always great, she does awesome romance but even better kids! Emma and Jason are also amazing as always!! Great Cast!!

What a great Surprise!

What a great surprise story, the characters are unique and fun. Their connection is chemistry and the way they just let it happen even with they both were not looking. Well, it was sweet and one of the many reasons I love Lauren’s book so much is the way she makes us fall in love with her characters.

The narration was fantastic; I loved Vaughn’s voice he was so effortless and easy to listen too. I think I might have a new voice to stalk. ;)

How have I not ever listened to Dan Bittner? LOVE!

Vaughn was such a cutie in Overnight Service, and I was so excited to learn he got his own story. I adored Quinn, because I’m a planner just like her. Although this was a novella, there was so much story. Having had their hearts broken before, Neither Vaughn nor Quinn is looking for anything long-term. When they meet, there’s an immediate attraction, and their chemistry is off the charts. Planning the company Christmas party is the perfect way for them to quickly get to know each other—without anything serious happening. Yeah, right!

Vaughn was so adorable, and has the biggest heart. Quinn is such a sweetheart, and their story filled my heart with such happiness.

And listening to the audiobook was so great! This was my first time listening to Dan Bittner, and holy hot voices!! His voice was like warm, silky chocolate, and he did an amazing job with this story. I hope to hear more of his swoony voice.

Also, stick around after the story for some awesome extras!

Cute

Lauren Blakely does it again! This is the perfect sweet and spicy holiday treat! I related to Quinn’s personality quite well so it was made extra fun for me. I loved how sweet Vaughn was, he and Quinn definitely made the perfect couple. The narration was amazing and the extras were everything!
