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...

I’m amazed at how Lauren Blakely managed to make this an angst-free, progressive romance. Particularly so when it seems impossible these days after all the obstacles deliberately thrown in the path of a couple so they wouldn’t get together properly right up until the very end.

‘The Sexy One’ turns that trend on its head and by its saccharine sweetness about a rather straight path to a HEA, defiantly proclaims that lust can be mutual, can turn into love after some time and can do so in a rather mature way. It’s also an easy read with characters that are almost Mayberry-perfect, but that simply goes with the plot where friction isn’t introduced simply because it has to be a climax before a resolution. There isn’t all of that; instead, Blakely ensures that the relationship goes from strength to strength and writes pretty much a fairy-tale (complete with the ending) into this.
