The boss and his nanny. They shouldn't have feelings for each other. They shouldn't even entertain the idea but my goodness, the chemistry is so electric, there is absolutely no way they could resist.
The Sexy One is basically an old-fashioned romance set ablaze with the combination of sizzling heat and moments of tenderness so beautiful I couldn't help but smile throughout. There's no extraneous nonsense, no misunderstandings. It's simply Simon and Abby trying to wade through their feelings for each other and happily realize that taking that chance is worth every bump in the road.
As is per usual in a Lauren Blakely book, we get two extraordinarily 'normal' characters in Simon and Abby, each strong and mature people who don't play games or run when the going gets tough. There is plenty of angst to be had even when you know you are meant to be and that's what makes the author's books so engaging. Add to the formula great friends who both make you laugh and have your back, together with one precocious and adorable daughter in Hayden and you have one helluva great read.
You will adore this book. Truly to become one of my all-time favorites from this author.
On top of all of this, the characters are awesome. Simon is a 34 year old single father of a great little girl named Hayden. He is the perfect father, loving, giving and has arranged his schedule so that he spends quality time with her every single day. This makes his daughter a well adjusted little girl that everyone loves. He is so handsome that all the Nannies or babysitters of the other kids, think he is a god! He is very nice and says hello and keeps walking! On top of all this he is a great dresser!
Abby is a 26 year old young woman who is Hayden's Nanny! These last 6 months of her working for Simon have been a dream to her-a great dad, his well behaved and adorable little girl who adores Abby as much as she adores Hayden! She also works as a teacher of languages as a side job.
There is only one problem in all of this -both Abby and Simon are starting to have feelings for each other, but they both try to keep it in check. Simon is worried that he may be too old for Abby and Abby is enamored of Simon, but does love Hayden so much she does not want to jeopardize her job, and on top of this Simon's ex wife picks up Hayden on weekends and looks at Abby like she is nothing.
One day, their feelings come out and they connect with each other! What follows is an endearing read with so many special moments between Abby and Simon, and Simon wants to take it to the next level! What will happen-you will have to read to find out, but this book is awesome and it has its moments of laugh out loud situations, an great dialog!
I gave this book 5***** stars and encourage you to read this book!
Never once did I want to skip or skim through certain parts because the dialogue was wholly entertaining throughout the entire read. I love how Laurin Blakely’s books take on what’s currently happening around us—take for instance the obsession of waiting and watching for the American Eaglets to be born. I mean, how many of us didn’t at one time or another tune into the live feed on Facebook?!
The Sexy One is my most favorite of this entire series and I’m so glad that I finally picked it up after it’d been sitting on my Kindle for some time. It was a quick, enjoyable read. One which I needed so desperately. So if you’re looking to get lost into something, make sure to give this one a shot. I can guarantee lots of giggles and swoon.
The Sexy One was so much fun to read! I loved that it was written in dual points of view instead of just from the man's perspective. It was fun to get Abby's point of view this time. The story wouldn't have been as strong without it. She was this really kind and sweet person, but she also had inner vixen that I loved. Simon wasn't as cocky as some of Ms. Blakely's other leading men. He was self-confident, but he wasn't a womanizer and he didn't have a huge ego. Simon was just a really great guy. His doting single dad status made him super sexy.
One of my favorite things about The Sexy One was the nanny-employer connection between Simon and Abby. It gave this book a forbidden love feel, but it wasn't angst-y or uncomfortable. There wasn't a bunch of drama to their relationship, and I really liked that. Simon and Abby's relationship grew naturally from attraction and friendship. There was a special sweetness to it because of both of their relationships with Simon's daughter.
I absolutely loved every minute of reading The Sexy One. It's the perfect book if you're looking for a romance that's going to make you swoon, laugh and fan yourself a bunch.
