A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely 

At first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend's place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you have to play to your strengths when you're fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I'm prepared to fight hard for her. Because sometimes you need a second chance at first love.

He's the one who got away . . . 
The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that at my job, showing off his rock-hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he's not . . .? I've tried like hell to forget him, but maybe I'm cursed to remember the guy I fell madly in love with eight years ago. Lord knows I’m not over him, so what's the harm in giving him a week to prove he's changed in the ways that matter? 

After all, how do you resist the hot one . . .?


  • Tyler is definitely HOT!

    By scottnl73
    Super cute second chance at love story. First, Delaney is a girl after my own heart with her love for shoes (despite the fact that she's got um...big feet lol). Seeing each other after 10 years is definitely surprising for both of them, but the chemistry still burns for each other. Delaney is cautious (understandably so, given how their relationship ended the first time), and slowly but surely Tyler sets out to woo her again. I appreciated that once Tyler learned how the debate they argued while in law school affected Delaney's life course, he does feel great remorse.
  • HOT, Sweet, Sexy and Fun

    Some second chance romance novels are very predictable and boring. Lauren Blakely NEVER disappoints. This is a second chance romance between Tyler and Delaney. The story line is written with both POV’s so it’s easy to get both sides of the story. This book is HOT, sweet, sexy and fun…as are all of this author’s books. I highly recommend.

  • Great

    Another good story from Lauren. I like how you meet the character of the next book in the current one. You also have interaction with previous charters. Loved how Tyler & Delaney rekindled their love. The steps Tyler took to prove he was serious. Enjoyed the time he spent with Carly & how he got insight from things she would say.
  • Truly hot but very sweet

    By Boundless Book Reviews
    The Hot One is truly hot but very sweet.  After 10 whole years of not seeing each other. Tyler runs into Delaney on a random day in the park. Which then reignites that spark that had always been there.  I loved this story. I even teared up while reading. It was touching, sweet and all about forgiveness. Now, Tyler is such an impulsive daring human being. I give it to him, for not wanting to lose her again. Sometimes through love does deserve a second chance.  “Life is about chances. If you want something, you simply have to go for it.” Lauren does it again with this one. How does she do this? I have no idea. But I’ve seriously loved so many of her books. What I loved most about this book, is the back stories of these characters and how they're mixed in throughout the whole story. It really gave you this connection with these characters. With the Dual POV you are able to really feel, exactly what their feeling.  I really hope that someday they turn these books into movies, a mini-series, or a TV Show. Really, I’m not that picky. Just one. How she writes, is just so easy to jump into these worlds she creates.  Overall, I give this Five Boundless Stars.
  • A Beautiful and Steamy Second Chance Romance!

    *Thank you to Inkslinger PR, Lauren Blakely, and Apple Books for providing me with a review copy.* I know I sound like a broken record at this point, but Lauren Blakely isn't capable of writing a bad book. She constantly writes these absolutely beautiful love stories filled with fierce and memorable characters. Reading her books never gets old to me and I can't wait for her next releases! I feel like she does such an excellent job at making us care so much about the world that these characters live in. What I mean is that some of these characters might just be featured in a few scenes, but Blakely's writing causes you to become intrigued and want a story for them. I highly recommend this and any other book by her if you really want to laugh out loud! Delaney was such a fabulous main character. I loved that she didn't let Tyler off the hook so easily. She's a strong and independent woman and I loved that about her. She wasn't the most memorable character, but she was still interesting and fun. Tyler is a rather swoony guy. I loved learning about him in previous Blakely books and have been waiting for his story for forever. He didn't let us down. He was sexy, swoony, and determined to win over Delaney again. I loved how relentless and eager he was to show his affection for her. He wasn't always smart about his decisions in the past, but I'm glad that he grew up. This was a wonderful second chance romance. Delaney and Tyler were together in college but he broke her heart when he abruptly ended things. Naturally, she made him work for it when he wanted her back years later. Though it takes a little while, it's definitely beautiful when they get back together. It's also extremely hot and chemistry is not an issue between them! They were a strong and beautiful couple all around. This was yet another beautiful romance from one of my favorite authors. I will read literally anything she writes because she has yet to let me down. Delaney and Tyler were such lovely characters on their own, but even better together. I loved them both so much. I can't recommend Lauren Blakely's books enough, you need to pick this one up! I can't wait to read The Wild One next.
  • Delicious

    Trevor is a man's man. Alpha, beautiful and proud of it. Delaney is amazing in her own way. A delicious storyline full of sexiness. Just as amazing as you would expect from a Lauren Blakely creation.
  • The Hot One

    By Lucy3907
    This story of love lost, regret, forgiveness and second chances is told with Lauren's unique humor. It is also heartwarming and more than just a little plain old "hot". Tyler and Delainey will grab you from the beginning when Tyler is juggling in the park for his niece's enjoyment and sees Delainey again after eight years, till he decides on making a grand gesture to win her back. What a gesture it is! So funny! It is a stand alone book but characters from others in this series make appearances.
  • Hot! One!

    By Bruin Reviewer
    A great book of love lost and renewed. It was fun reading the adventure of Tyler attempting to rekindle their love from their college days, that was 10 years ago. Delaney was questioning their past and if it was possible if they could reconnect their love. Past, present, and future are important to their second time around. Can't wait to read the next one. It's great to have the characters from other books being interconnected!
  • Pretty good

    By Great super duper book!!!
    Listened to the audio and it was good. The book lacked some erotic content but lovely story.
