A sinfully sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely . . .
I'll say this about Christian -- he made one heck of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I'd seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do -- I took his photo. I might have looked at the shot a few dozen times. Little did I know I'd meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I'd learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating. But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal -- No strings. No expectations.

Our arrangement worked well enough until the day I needed a lot more from him...
Let me just say, this whole part-time lover thing was her idea. I'd have gone all-in from the start, but hey, when a gorgeous, brilliant woman invites you into her bed, and only her bed...well, I said yes.
But then, one hysterical phone call from my brother later, begging me to find myself a wife so grandfather's business stays in the family, and I need a promotion with Elise. Turns out a full-time husband suits her needs too, and a temporary marriage of convenience ought to do the trick, until we can simply untie the knot...

As long as no one finds out...
As long as no one gets hurt...
As long as no one falls in love...
But our ending was one I never saw coming.

What do you get when you mix a charming British hero, a temporary marriage of convenience, and a smart & sassy heroine? PART-TIME LOVER, the brand new, standalone rom-com from #1 New York Times bestseller Lauren Blakely! Narrated by the deliciously sexy Shane East and Grace Grant, PART-TIME LOVER promises full-time satisfaction. Get your copy of PART-TIME LOVER now!

Do you believe in fate? That things happen for a reason? Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakey is a story about fate and second chances that will tug at your heart! It truly was such a fun and charming audiobook with great characters and a story I wanted to devour. And that beginning, I was laughing and swooning!

When Elise first saw Christian, she saw him in all his glory, literally! Since she was on vacation and allowing herself some freedom, she let him know what she thought of him. They agreed to meet, but miscommunication had them missing each other. With their moment lost, they never expected to see each other gain. Imagine their surprise when almost a year later they come face-to-face again.

I absolutely loved Christian and Elise so much. Both had pasts that haunted them, but in different ways.  Christian was honest, caring and lived his life with freedom. He never thought he would want forever again. Elise was hurt so badly, she did not know if she could ever trust, much less love again. But they had such an easy comradery and chemistry, they decided to enjoy each other for as long as they could.

As their friendship and attraction grew, Christian is surprised to learn that he needs a bride, now. And even more surprised by Elise’s offer to help but her intentions are only to help and for this to be temporary. They could enjoy and help each other at the same time. But what happens when real feelings emerge, and everything changes?

I must say, Shane East and Grace Grant did an amazing job bringing Christian and Elise’s story to life. I felt every emotion and every moment between them. I truly enjoyed listening to Part-Time Lover. It was a light story with very little angst and a whole lot of charm!
