Satisfaction Guaranteed is NEW! The look the stakes, the witty push and pull of rekindled love, but it’s still classic Blakely. She delivers ever bit of clever and resonating affection in this inventive, swoony-s*xy romantic comedy.
Forget about putting this book down, and you shouldn’t. It tops my all-time LB faves, along with Wonderlust and Part-Time Lover.
Satisfactions Guaranteed tells the story of a strong committed beauty with a heart to match and her Marcus Welby coworker, a hot hot lover of a man invented by Blakely to satisfy every romance reader’s wildest dreams. Bonus: it’s a barn burner of simmering sexual tension from the first flirt, and it’s written with a veteran hand primed to seduce you.
Dashing veterinarian Dr. Malone Goodman is FlockHOT. He’s an animal lover, thoughtful and kind, and god bless completely smitten with Sloane. And you guessed it, he’s a smooth talker and he sings! The standards, the most romantic kind. Sloane Elizabeth is a walking wet dream to him, and she also loves animals. She is shy but committed and wow does she know what she wants. But, she’s the “boss’ daughter,” dammit.
These two have a past. The will they won’t they—mmm fantastic—doesn’t last long, because the longing and chemistry between these two would melt the polar ice caps. And when they tumble into a relationship. It is everything.
I love this story. Blakely has found a new groove with this story. Her storytelling skillz are everywhere here, and the twist she drops at the end of the el fuego first act is new. Shocked and so intrigued are understatements.
There are a few motifs that a lurved. The banter between doctor and feline patient that opens the story is fantastic. And Tahiti—let’s keep it in Tahiti—I found it clever and endearing. They wanted to protect this thing growing between them, and I loved the banter. The dialogue is one of the pleasures of reading this amazing author.
SG is immediately among LB's BEST EVER, and getting all the tender delish story told from Malone’s POV is a massive bonus. Not everyone cal pull it off, but… oh read and enjoy. Just as I did. Xo
Malone is all kinds of perfect, as his good friends and sister like to point out all too often. And holy smokes, he truly is. Not only does he have a wonderful demeanor as a caring vet (his patients really do adore him) but he seems to be the only man qualified to help Sloane get over a certain 'thing' between the sheets. His determination to make sure she gets her pleasure at last involves secret trysts that are out of this world erotic. These two have a passion that has become the trademark of Blakely's work. Intelligent, loving people who simply fit, both in and out of bed. Not afraid to let go, to find their sexy and to compliment the other all times of the night or day.
With Sloane and Malone now working side by side, I knew it would just be a matter of time when they have that kind of scene we might see in a sighworthy movie, when they throw caution to the wind, and claim each other for good. That's the kind of love story you get not only in this book but in the majority of Blakely's extensive catalog. It's why she will forever be a go-to author for me.
Sloane and Malone have the kind of chemistry that is red-hot, yet it is also beyond tender and loving. With the use of old-time standards the talented Malone sings onstage in his off hours providing a unique kind of romantic vibe and the love of friends and family (with the requisite cameos by prior Blakely couples when least expected), Satisfaction Guaranteed is one great ride.
Malone and Sloane have that rare kind of magic together. But it's Lauren Blakely who beautifully casts her own special spells that set her books apart from so many others. I particularly love that she continues to showcase cats and dogs in each book with partial proceeds actually coming from sales of this story going to animal rescue organizations. I happily give Satisfaction Guaranteed 5 solid stars!
I loved the blurb I read about this book, which is one of the reasons I ordered it. But, the blurb does not do it justice!! This book is Lauren Blakely at her finest!!
Malone Goodman is just swoon worthy!! He's a hot, sexy veterinarian who croons Sinatra type songs during his off hours! LORD, if that's not swoon worthy then I don't know what is!! He's also just a good person who cares about his family and friends.
Sloane Elizabeth is "the one that got away" but she was really the one that he couldn't be with because her father was Malone's business partner. Seven years ago they met and clicked beyond belief!! If the chemistry was as hot 7 years ago as it is now, then they were on fire!! Sloane is now back in Malone's life directly, thanks to her dad. He gave her animal rescue office space in the vet clinic. Which means that they will see each other every day and work side by side. Now, it's obvious to EVERYONE that their chemistry is alive and kicking, but they think they need to keep it on the down low, because it's forbidden.
I don't want to give anything away, because you really need to read their story to appreciate it. It's amazing, BTW!!
I love that we get to visit with some old friends from previous books. That's what I love most about Lauren Blakely, she interweaves all the characters from her universe into different books. To me, this makes it feel more like a family or large friend circle that I get to be a part of!!
I highly recommend this book to everyone, you'll love it!!! Now, I can't wait for Truly and Jason's book!!!!

Performance - 5 stars.
Satisfaction Guaranteed is a cute, and very easy to listen to story. The narrators were amazing, especially the male narrator. Wow, he can really sing. I loved the bonus at the end of the Audiobook of him singing, it was a wonderful addition at the end of the story.
I do enjoy a sweet, second chance romance. Malone is a hot, singing vet, and Sloane is running an animal rescue from the veterinary practice - so no being able to avoid each other and their attraction here! A brief fling years ago had left them unable to forget the other. At the time, Sloane's father being Malone's business partner at the vets (and the senior partner at that) really put a damper on the possibility of a relationship. Moving back to the present - they are both still crazy for each other, and more willing to chase what they want.
Very, very low on drama/angst - definitely listen to the audiobook, I'm glad I listened rather than read the ebook, as the narrators really added a lot to the story.
Adult Content i.e. explicity sex scenes & language
I really enjoyed the story of Sloane & Malone and the journey they take to get to their HEA. I found it to be combination of forbidden romance i.e. Sloane is the daughter of Malone's business partner and second chances i.e. the one who got away when Malone found out who Sloane is (read/listen to prequel "Delayed Satisfication" for that story).
I found the sex scenes and language tasteful and fitted perfectly into the story.
I also loved it when characters from the "Big Rock" series made an appears and to discover the relationship that Malone has with those characters. Note, you do not have to have read the Big Rock series to read this book but for me I found it brought a smile to my face when I heard the names of the characters as it made me remember how much I loved that series.
I look forward to continuing the series.
For the first time ever, I didn't completely love a Lauren Blakely book.
Don't get me wrong, I liked it, I just didn't love it.
It could just be the head space I was in, having a stupid head cold and everything was just blegh, but I know that this is an anomoly.
The first 20% of the book, to me, I just couldn't get in to. This never happens with me and LB. I did get into it after that point.
However, to me, nothing really happened. I didn't really get into the Malone and Sloane thing - I was more interested in his sister Truly and what was going to happen with her story later on.
Ugh, I know this makes it sound like the book was horrible and that I hated it, but that is not it at all.
Take these as the ramblings of someone who can't breathe properly at the moment!
I know this is going to be just a case of it's me, not the book. I will go back and read this book later on and I am sure I will like it better.
I am really looking forward to the next book.
Narration was awesome too.
Men, you could learn a thing or two from this Vet! Ladies too. Enjoy
