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.

Entertaining

This was a light, fun listen. A well-told story about two people falling in love. No unnecessary, over-done angst, just the right amount of thoughtfulness for the situation they were in. The characters were likable but I would have liked to see more growth from them (just a personal preference - I like to see the characters grow and change). Andi Arndt and Sebastian York were, as always, wonderful interpreters of the characters.

to have a sexy boss

the Sexy One is the story of single dad Simon and Nanny Abby. They have worked together caring for Hayden and keeping their mutual lust from each other. However things just start to boil over and they can't keep away from each other.

You would think it would be a cliche book but it was seriously enjoyable. Abby is strong and independent and loves Hayden. However Simon is attractive and the way he is with his daughter makes him even more so. He's hard to resist. But when he starts to pay attention to her and shows her a new sides. Things heat up.

Simon is a good dad, and guy. ya his first marriage failed, but hello he learned from his mistakes. It was a cute, heart warming book and of course there is hot sex. But either way I just enjoyed this one.

I could easily fall for Andi Arndt's male voice!!

If I couldn't have Sebastian York, I could easily fall for Andi Arndt's male voice! Sigh...
Lauren Blakely is always a great choice! The Sexy One is smart and funny with fantastic, relatable characters. This is a story to lighten your mood and swoon for the good girl and guy!
An easy add to my library!

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

Another sweet story

I love the practical absence of angst. All of the characters of all of these books have been very likable.
As for the narrators, they are 2 of my favorite voices ever.

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!

Sweet feel good romance.

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.

Realistic

I liked this story, for this genre it was very realistic. No excessive conflict or drama. Some might find it boring, but I really liked it, plus the narration team is one of the best.

So good!

This book was so good. I know that is a simple statement but everything about it was just sweet goodness. I loved the h and wanted to put her in my pocket. The H was exactly as the title stated. The Sexy One. He was wonderful. I'm glad I liked him so much and didn't once want to punch him in the face. So romantic and angst-free. The narrators were spot on as usual with these two. So good!

Simon is one beautiful man

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sexy One to be better than the print version?

no as i love to listen & read

Who was your favorite character and why?

What does Andi Arndt and Sebastian York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Andi does a great job but Sebastian has this beautiful sexy voice

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Any additional comments?

Delightfully funny

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!

Great Story, no emotional sagas.

Nice to have a book where the lead characters aren't battling emotional demons etc.
A straight forward romance, make such a change.
I totally love the two of them. xxx

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.

Gosh have you ever read a story so heartwarming? the single dad who tries to have as much time with his daughter and has a thing for the nanny who gets his daughter and just fits into their lifestyle seamlessly. gosh his daughter fencing is just *sigh* she's the cutest kid ever, and that brings them together.
love and humour. lauren Blakely is great at this.
