Publisher's Summary

A collection of the three best-selling high-stakes stand-alones in the Extravagant series!

One Night Only

On the outside, I look innocent—blonde hair, bright smile, buttoned-up blouse.

But inside, I’m black lace and dirty dreams. And for the last year, I’ve been fighting my desires for the one man who’s totally off-limits—my bodyguard.

One Exquisite Touch

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.

Turns out, he's my rival, and he wants my business. And me.

My One Week Husband

He's my business partner, my good friend, and the man I've craved for years.

But I've resisted the sexy Brit. Then an opportunity comes along for us to snag the business deal of a lifetime.

The catch? We need to pretend we're married to pull off this high-stakes deal.

Fire!!!

All I can say is this collection is H-O-T!!I’ve read and listened to each of them more than once and they get better each time! The narrators make these stories come to life on a whole new level!

One Night Only
Holy hotness!! Ivy and Callum set the pages on fire. Callum knows Ivy better than anyone and he wishes he knew her better, only he’s all business when it comes to protecting her. It’s his job after all. Callum is the star in all of Ivy’s secret fantasies. Get ready to watch what happens when a fantasy becomes a reality!

One Exquisite Touch
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!

My One Week Husband

My One Week Husband by Lauren Blakely is a friends to lovers romance that you will absolutely devour. We first met our leading man, Daniel, in One Exquisite Touch and I was ready for his story. I knew one day he’d find that one woman who was a game changer. Scarlett is a business partner with him and Cole. To help in the search for a new boutique hotel chain, they pretend to be newlyweds so they can really experience what these hotels have to offer. Lines are blurred when they both have true feelings. The past is painful for them both and has left them having a hard time with love. Daniels past was heartbreaking and Scarlett is just what he needs. This book was a sweet, sexy, and fun read that will ultimately put a smile on your face.

Wow! Three amazing stories all together!

One Night Only is another sexy addition to the Lauren Blakely After Dark books. Lauren's books always bring the sexy and fun, and these book are no different. They just give us more of the sexy. Ivy is a CEO who's trying to revamp her hotel and make it the next big thing. Callum is her bodyguard. He's supposed to be off limits, but she can't help the way she's fallen for him in the last year. Callum's job is to protect Ivy. Watch over her and never let anything happen to her. He can't do that if he's physically involved with her, so he doesn't let her get that close. Until one night when he sees desire in her eyes. Desire for something he knows he can give her. But he has to touch her first. Experience just him and Ivy. Then he needs to walk away and do his job. Ivy can't stop thinking about the one night she shared with Callum. She wants more, but she knows it probably won't happen. Callum finally realizes he can't stay away from her and he wants to give her the fantasy she's dying for. Him, her and his best friend, Stone. He's a sexy rockstar who would love nothing more than to help out his best friend. Just one night. The three of them together to give Ivy what she craves. This story is so hot! But it's more than just steamy and sexy. Ivy's job is demanding and she has to learn that she can have both the high powered job and be submissive to her man. Callum has to realize her can still keep the woman he wants safe, while he gives in to his feelings. One night of forbidden passion just fuels the connection between Ivy and Callum. Overall I loved it! It's a short, fast read full of heat and heart. I can't wait for Stone's story!

Audio: I feel like I say this a lot, but Joe and Emma did some of the best narration they have ever done. And Jacob really brought his A game (I smiled through his entire chapters.). I couldn’t get enough of this story or this narration. Lauren and these three narrators are a match made in heaven!


One Exquisite Touch is book one in The Extravagant series by the incredibly talented Lauren Blakely. This series is starting off with a bang. It's hot, sexy, a little sweet, emotional and did I say sexy? Sage is looking for something extra. More. She's not even sure what she wants until she meets him at a masquerade ball. The sexy masked stranger makes her body hum and her heart race. She wants to see him again and hold him to his promises, but she doesn't expect him to walk into her office a few days later. She's shocked that her new competition is the man who played her body. Cole Donovan. Owner of the new hotel on the Strip. Her rival. This can't he happening. How is she supposed to stop wanting him? She wants more. She needs more. Is it possible to fulfill your fantasies with your rival? Cole would recognize his stranger anywhere but he can't believe his luck when she turns out to be Sage Carmichael. A woman who he'll be fighting to win business in Vegas. He won't be deterred that easily thought. Rival or not, Sage is everything he's ever wanted in a woman and he's not going to be able to stay away from her. Oh my Lord! Cole is so off the charts sexy with his dark eyes, commanding presence, love of books and thoughtful ways. He's smart, handsome, caring and hot. Sage is beautiful, smart, dedicated and has been waiting for a man like Cole. Together they are on fire! In the bedroom and in business, they are the perfect match. I’m loving all the secondary characters and can't wait for their stories!

Audio: Not only is the book Lauren's sexiest yet, these narrators blew my mind with the hotness! Emma sounds the best I've ever heard and she takes Lauren's sexy words and gives them life with her confidence and sexiness. Joe and Shane are off the charts sexy as always, but they stepped it up for this one. If that's even possible!
Wesleigh is a new to me narrator and I enjoyed her voice.

My One Week Husband is Lauren Blakely's newest friends to lovers romance and it was so fantastic! She tells this story with her words as Scarlett and Daniel go on a journey through France as they discover each other and the beauty around them. Business partners can be lovers. Friends can be lovers. Sometimes you find the one in the person you were always hoping would be yours. I fell in love with Scarlett and Daniel, the places they visited, the people they met and the things they shared. Daniel has a painful past that he never shares with anyone. When he finds himself on a trip with his business partner, Scarlett, while they pretend to be married for one week, he realizes he wants to open up to her. Scarlett never imagined what happened to Daniel. Now that she knows his past, she understands him more. After spending time with him traveling around, being together in and out of bed, she knows she wants more. Can a one week fake relationship turn into the real thing? I love Daniel and Scarlett! They have so much heart and soul and they just get each other. It was beautiful to watch them fall for each other. They left me wanting to visit Monet's kitchen, listen to the violin and fall in love.

Audio: This audiobook is everything! Vanessa and Shane have never sounded better and add in the full cast, and it was perfection. The violin music literally made me cry and I loved every minute of it!

A collection you don't wanna miss!!

One Night Only

Wow, I don't know where to start. This short story of Ivy and Callum really packs a smoking hot punch. While being sexy AF, there's still a great story there about a successful business woman and her bodyguard. The addition of Stone was just a bonus! The narrators performance was just outstanding. Emma, Joe and Jacob were perfectly cast as Ivy, Callum and Stone. Joe seriously brought me to tears in one scene and this is NOT a book to cause tears. It was all in how he performed the scene that was so emotional to me.


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!


My One Week Husband

I fell in love with Daniel when he appeared in One Exquisite Touch. Immediately I thought, I have to know more about this guy and wanted so much for his story to be told. This book was absolutely everything I wished for and more. It was playful, fun, serious and when they come together, it was positively thermonuclear. I really enjoyed Daniel and Scarlett's playful banter and role-playing. In between all of the fun and sex were some seriously deep underlying things that both of them had dealt with for years affecting personal relationships. I loved every wonderful, sexy and emotional moment of this story.
The audiobook performanes by Vanessa Edwin and Shane East were just absolutely magical. These actors have an amazing chemistry and they're one of my favorite narrator duos. I also cannot leave out all of the side character narrations of Erin Mallon, Joe Arden and Vanessa Mei as well as the new to me narrators Siiri Scott and James Joseph.

Great Boxed Set!

This great boxed set includes three novels:

One Night Only: Ivy and Callum's story is sweet, fun, steamy, and fast-paced. They share a sizzling hot chemistry. Ivy is smart, adventurous, independent, and confident. Callum, Ivy's bodyguard, is handsome, strong, protective, and supportive. The MFM scene is hot! I love the ending. Emma Wilder, Joe Arden and Jacob Morgan did an outstanding job with the narration. This is a great team author/narrators. I enjoyed it!

One Exquisite Touch: This is the second book in The Extravagant Series. Sage, and Cole's story is hot! Daniel is an intriguing character, and I can't wait to listen to his story. I liked Eliza, Sage's sister. I love the Epilogues! Emma Wilder, Joe Arden, Shane East, and Wesleigh Siobhan did a great job with the narration.

My One Week Husband: Daniel and Scarlett's fake marriage romance is sweet, romantic, and sexy. These two characters have been introduced in One Exquisite Touch, but you can listen to this story as a standalone. Daniel is sexy, secretive, and handsome. Scarlett is smart and beautiful. They are business partners and friends. I like their banter, and undeniable chemistry. I loved to follow them in their romantic and seductive journey to France. The supporting characters are great. Shane East and Vanessa Edwin, and Erin Mallon, Joe Arden, Victoria Mei, Siiri Scott, and James Joseph did a fantastic job with this full-cast production. I enjoyed it. I like the bloopers, and the bonus prequel novella of The Rules of Friends with Benefits.

Deliciously naughty - Lauren Blakely is the queen!

One Night Only
HOT! HOT! HOT! Ivy, Callum, and Stone will melt your Kindles! Being attracted to your bodyguard isn't a great idea. Unless it seems your bodyguard is also attracted to you. Both are so focused on their jobs, and don't want to risk their working relationship by giving in to their desires. But maybe they could do it once, and then go back to bodyguard and client. One night to get all this want out of their systems should do it. Yeah, right! Not quite how Lauren writes these beautiful love stories.

These two were adorable, and their pull to each other was magnetic. Ivy and Callum are a beautiful, kinky, sassy, dominant powder keg waiting to combust. And what a beautiful sight to behold.

Joe Arden, Emma Wilder, and Jacob Morgan do an amazing job narrating this hot as sin tale. Joe is his usual perfect self. He is wickedly filthy and dominant, and I savored him. Emma has become such a great power amongst female narrators. She totally owns Lily and knows it. Jacob is...Jacob. He makes whatever role he's given uniquely his. His rock star personna Stone is so sexy, and his interactions with Callum and Lily are quite scorching. I fell in love with Stone almost immediately.

Lauren has a great ear for matching narrators with roles, and this trio was sensational!

One Exquisite Touch
Sage owns a hotel in Vegas with her sister. Boss lady billionaires, they've worked very hard to make their hotel stand out on the strip. When Sage meets Cole and Daniel, who own the newest hotel across the street from hers, there's an almost immediate attraction. The problem is, Sage is attracted to both men. Is this really a problem?

There are a few stories going on here. There's the naughty dalliances between Cole, Sage, and Daniel. And they are so, so, so HOT!! Also, Cole and Sage are growing closer together. With their past issues, they're forced to confront things they aren't quite ready to. And sweet, filthy Daniel seems to have something going on himself.

This was such a great adventure. Sage, coming into her own sexuality, and owning it. Cole and Daniel offering and delivering so many experiences to Sage. Cole and Sage not looking for, but finding a love they both want and deserve. There's so much I can and want to say in this review, but I don't want to give away anything. Trust me, you'll love it. Lauren doesn't skimp on the delicious dirtiness, and also the swoony moments, and there are quite a few.

Sage's best friend Eliza is having her own love quandry that involves a quarterback.

I listened to the audio version of this, so I got the beautifully wicked Joe, Shane, and Emma telling me this amazing tale. Wesleigh Siobhan is a new-to-me narrator, and she did a wonderful job narrating a little surprise.

My One Week Husband
I've been waiting for Daniel's story ever since One Exquisite Touch, and did Lauren deliver! Because of his strong need for control, I knew Daniel had issues, perhaps from a previous relationship or childhood trauma. When the specifics are revealed, his tortured soul broke my heart into a million pieces. His best friend and business partner, Cole knows about his past, and since Daniel played a hand in the introduction of the love of his life, he wants to see Daniel happy, as well.

Scarlett, who recently joined Daniel and Cole's hotel development firm as a partner, is my badass muse. She's lady billionaire #goals all over the place, and her smarts, drive, and single-minded focus has brought this trio much success. Having been married before, Scarlett puts all her energy into her job. She doesn't want or need romance in her life.

When the prospect of a hotel on the market gets the attention of Daniel and Scarlett while on a business trip, they can't help wanting to check it out for themselves. Being well-known hoteliers, they decide to pretend to be married, so as to keep their evaluation under wraps. Being the great friends they are, the ruse isn't a difficult one. But when an unexpected event occurs, they're forced to see each other in a different light, and suddenly the attraction between them is revealed. Fight it as hard as they could, eventually their hotness gets the best of them, and they embark on a week-long exploration of each other. This "friends w/benefits" period will end when their time spent checking out the hotel ends. Then, they go back to being the great friends and colleagues they've been. Yeah, right.

This was so beautiful as Daniel and Scarlett discovered one another in a new light, and how their past experiences are affected by their physical closeness. The chemistry is so strong, and as they talk about their relationships and past hurts, it seems to bring them that much closer. Knowing their time is coming to an end, the strong feelings force them to really look at themselves, and decide what's really important. Daniel and Scarlett have both been through life-changing events that changes their way of thinking about relationships. But with their strong foundation of friendship, they're able to work through things. This story was hot, breathtaking, heartbreaking, heartmending, hot, more hot, a lot hot.

Shane East and Vanessa Edwin--Shanessa--did a fantastic job narrating, as usual. Erin Mallon, Joe Arden, and new to LB books, Siiri Scott, and James Joseph make a great supporting cast for this wonderful love story.

Alphas meet their match!

One Night Only
The hotel heiress and her bodyguard, sound hot? You bet!! Lauren Blakely’s newest After Dark novella is “One Night Only” and boy is it steamy, sexy, and beautiful. I like the employer/employee troupe a lot especially when you have a super sexy, ruggedly handsome/former military, and heart-of-gold alpha. Mmmmm….Callum is all that and then some. During his time guarding Ivy, Callum has been observing/learning her wants, desires, and sexy desires. When Callum discovers Ivy’s “darker” desires he sets out to deliver. Enlisting the help of his best friend, Stone, together they bring Ivy more pleasure than she has ever known. Stone just might be the type of friend to do the “matchmaking” thing while discovering a thing or two about himself. Love this After Dark series. This book also has a very well written MFM scene as well. If this is not your usual thing, I highly encourage you to step out and try it. The scene is so well written as is the whole story. As usual Lauren chooses the very best talent for her audiobooks and One Night Only is no different. Joe Arden performs as Callum, Emma Wilder as Ivy and Jacob Morgan as Stone Zenith. I’ve listened to these narrators multiple times and they are all so amazing. They bring the characters and the story to life in my head. It’s like watching a movie, I love it! 5 stars*****

One Exquisite Touch
I loved it! Go read it and be ready for out of this world hotness!
Cole and Sage are rival hotel owners in Las Vegas with an amazing amount of passion, desire, and chemistry between them. They are oh so very Hot. Lauren Blakely’s newest release in the Extravagant series, “One Exquisite Touch” has it all. Heat, sexual and flirty banter, with an amazing amount of passion, desire, and chemistry between them. They are oh so very Hot. Lauren Blakely’s newest release in the Exquisite series, “One Exquisite Touch” has it all. Heat, sexual and flirty banter, with unexpected hotness. Cole, along with his best friend and business partner, Daniel, have a desire/need to play sexual games with a woman. Daniel has his own secrets as to why he desires this lifestyle of MFM encounters with Cole. Cole and Sage both try to resist their desires with little luck. How could they, the chemistry between these two is off the charts. Add Daniel to the mix and the chemistry and hotness factor is out of this world. This MFM scenario is not my norm but oh did I enjoy it. So very hot and extremely well written. I seriously could not put this one down. So glad I had a weekend to read it. This series along with the After Dark series are some of my favorites. If you want heat(a lot) with a beautiful story line between the characters you will enjoy One Exquisite Touch. My heart hurts for Daniel. I found myself desiring that he find his HEA as you can tell he wants a love like he orchestrated for his best friend Cole and Sage but will not allow himself to have it. Hopefully, real soon. The narrators in One Exquisite Touch are Emma Wilder, Joe Arden, Shane East (a British voice that is oh so hot!), and Wesleigh Siobhan. These narrators are all so very talented. Their abilities to bring this beautiful story to life in my mind’s eye is just amazing. I love all of these narrators. *****

My One Week Husband

Where to begin? My One Week Husband by Lauren Blakely is wonderfully written, as always. My heart broke for both Daniel and Scarlet. They both have endured a lot in their pasts. Will they finally allow themselves a forever future together filled with unconditional love? Do the stars guide Daniel and Scarlet or is there a cupid at play? Hmmm…..you’re going to have to either read it or listen to this absolutely amazing story.
Speaking of listening, Shane East, Vanessa Edwin, and a full cast of narrators bring Daniel and Scarlet to life. Shane has that fabulous British accent. Can you say...swoon? Every narrator does an absolutely fabulous job. I like dual POV’s but a dual narration with the whole cast takes the story to another level. It makes creating visuals in your mind that much easier. So much to say about the story, that I’m having a hard time not spoiling it. I am fairly new to audiobooks but the narrators that Lauren uses just cannot be compared to others. Out of this world. These people are so talented. They do way more than just read the story, they bring it to life. Oh, I forgot to mention, Lauren can really write between-the-sheets action but, Shane and Vanessa? Whew, let’s just say that you better have a fan!! (I think Ch. 17 is the hottest that I have ever read or listened to by Lauren). *****

Fantastic!

Love every story. Saucy and lovely and all the feels. The third book was just… ugh… so so good!! And the bloopers made me laugh out loud. The surprise prequel to Virgin Rule Book at the end was great as well. Teddy already had me smiling.
