⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sexy and fun

Sexy, sexy fun! I can always count on Lauren Blakely for incredible chemistry, banter, and characters who are easy to like, and this has that in spades. Featuring two former friends who faltered when they tried to cross the line, it takes place over a 24-hour period and is a lot of fun. Half enemies to lovers and half friends to lovers, these two have history that makes the short timeframe work. I loved the first half, which features some great dialogue and chemistry that sparks off the page. It faltered a little bit at the halfway point, only because Blakely utilized a trope I’m not a fan of (more on that later), but it remained a light and sexy read the whole way through.

The story follows Lola and Lucas, two former friends who were close in college. They shared a kiss and were set to have their first date, only for things to get sidelined when Lucas couldn’t follow through. Both insecure about the budding relationship, they let their hesitancy get in the way, and the relationship never recovered. Now they are professional adversaries who don’t really hate each other but also don’t know how to act. When their siblings send them on a scavenger hunt of sorts (too complicated to explain here, but pretty hilarious), they’re stuck with each other for 24 hours and are forced to confront all of those old feelings.

Blakely’s writing is always excellent, so there’s a lot about this that I loved. That first half is rom com gold, light and fun and sexy and smile-inducing. The plot is completely original, not something I’ve read before in a romance. My disconnect with the second half is more personal preference than anything. Slight spoiler: I’m not a fan of friends who think they can just “get it out of their systems” and then return to normal. That sentiment takes over the second half and changes the tone. It’s definitely not my favorite trope, but again, personal preference. The quality is still there and it’s a sexy, fun read. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next from Blakely, because this series has been pretty great. I received an ARC via Candi Kane PR and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sexy read.

Blurb:

Lucas Xavier is the last person I want to spend 24 hours with, let alone two minutes. Exes are exes for a reason. In his case, for a million reasons. Because he’s not only an ex-lover, he’s also an ex-friend. We didn’t just break up – we combusted in a spectacular bonfire of barbs and doors slammed.

Nothing will change that. Not his clever wit, not his ridiculous good looks, not his unfair levels of charm. And definitely not a wild dash through the city that takes us on an accidental scavenger hunt through our past, where we stop for a tango lesson, pancakes and a visit with some llamas.

And certainly not time together to make amends and say we’re sorry.

But, let’s say that was enough…it’s not like you can fall in love in 24 hours.

Indulge in the BOYFRIEND MATERIAL series! Three best friends. Three outrageous proposals. Three chances to fall in love. Three brand new standalones from Lauren Blakely! ONE NIGHT STAND-IN is a standalone romance in this series!
