A brand new, standalone, hero-POV romantic comedy! If you enjoyed Big Rock, Mister O, or Full Package, you'll love Satisfaction Guaranteed!

Look, she started it.

She issued me a challenge I couldn't back down from. Make her purr like no man has done before.

Fine, she's my business partner's daughter. All right, I'm also working in the same damn practice with her. Yes, she happens to be my ex-fling. But that was seven years ago, and it was barely a week-long thing.

Except, Sloane is still the one I can't stop thinking of -- brilliant, sexy, captivating Sloane. Maybe a week of taking her to new heights will get her out of my head.

So what if we spend a few nights on the town too? So what if I romance her across Manhattan? It's all in the name of scientific pursuit of more magnificent Os.

Until the rules change...

Malone and Sloane. Adorable already right? ☺
They had an amazing week together seven years ago.
But then Malone found out that she's the daughter of his new boss at the vet clinic.
They ended things and went on with their lives. Never really forgetting about that amazing week and the lost possibilities.
Now Sloane's back. Her dad brought her into the office with her animal rescue charity.
Can Sloane & Malone work together every day and not fall for each other again???

What will happen with Sloane & Malone?
Will there be a HEA?

That was adorable!

I just adore Lauren's male POV romances. And Malone is really adorable!
A sexy, talented, singing vet!?! #MINE
The way he loves animals and his sister and his mom. And of course Sloane.
But it won't be easy with her dad always hanging around the office.
He was supposed to be retired already! ☺

I loved reading this book!
It was funny, sweet, sparky, sexy, animaly.
Can't wait to read the next book about Malone's sister Truly!

I didn't really love the blurb - it doesn't sound like it was written for the story. And the 'challenge' she issued was more or less issued by him and not her - plus it doesn't happen until after the middle of the book! Very weird blurb.
And the story was a bit like that too. I loved it. I loved the people in it. I loved the male POV and the little chapters from Sloane's mind. But it was a bit slow in the beginning and a bit fast toward the end. Plus all that 'old' music was just so not my thing. It wasn't as funny as I'd hoped it would be.
But it was a really sweet romance.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEED was a funny & adorable love story full of animals and music and sexy lessons! Run to your nearest amazon asap for your own Malone - this one is MINE !!!

ARC received for an honest review

Oy, this is a hard one to write.

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.

I meet Sloane’s gaze then go for it. Because this night has only one destination. “We should go to Tahiti.”

“Too long a flight?”

She lets go of my hand and holds up her thumb and forefinger. “Maybe a little. Not that I’m turning down a trip to Tahiti. Wait? Are you saying you want to take me to Tahiti? Because I can pack like that.”

Smiling, I slide my hand to her ass, squeezing. I whisper roughly in her ear, “I’m saying I’d like to escape with you. Like we’re getting away for the night. Let’s fuck away all this hot, wild desire.”

She exhales then goes quiet, perhaps lost in thought. “But I thought we were going to resist kissing.”

I brush the backs of my fingers along her jaw. “We already failed that test.”

She pouts. “I was supposed to be an un-vixen.”

“Didn’t work. You’re the opposite, and I want you so fucking much.” I press against her. “You have me so wound up. I’m pretty sure you’re wound up too.”

She pushes back. “You know I am. You know I want you too. That was never the issue.”

I have to get closer to her. I need to have her. “Let’s give in. Just once.” I slide my fingers into her hair, she leans her head against my palm, and I continue making my case. “I can take you places. I can make you feel extraordinary, like I’ve always wanted to.”

She hums. “You’re making it hard to say no.”

“True. I’m very hard to resist.”

A smile spreads across her face. “You are, Malone. You’re terribly, impossibly hard to resist.” She nibbles on her bottom lip. “One night. Our secret. What happens in Tahiti stays in Tahiti.”

“Absolutely,” I say as my dick high-fives me.

“And where is this alternate universe?”

I curl my fingers around her hip bone. “My place isn’t far. There’s also a hotel down the block. Either way, I intend to strip you naked, get my lips all over you, and make you feel as fucking good as you looked when you were watching me sing.”

She shudders. “I looked good when I was watching you? How so?”

I run my thumb over her hip, rubbing in slow, sensual circles. “You’re so seductive. You looked so incredibly alluring. You looked exactly as you are—the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met.” My fingers stray to her belly, gliding down the fabric of her dress toward my final destination. “And you and I have unfinished business.”

She leans her head back, and the most delicious moan ever recorded escapes her lips. When she raises her face, she tap-dances her fingers down my chest then runs them over the silk of my tie. “Are you saying we’re going to finish the business tonight?”

“Yes, and then tomorrow . . . we can be friends again.” The thought pains me, but I know this is the only way to deal with our reality.

“Exactly,” she says, nodding her agreement. “We take a trip tonight. We get away to a remote island. And tomorrow we go back to the real world?” She’s seriously considering this. Hell, I’ve already considered it six ways to Sunday in the span of ten seconds, and I say it’s a brilliant plan.

“Let me take care of you tonight. Let me spend the night worshipping your body and driving you wild with pleasure.”

“You say these things . . .”
I grin. “And?”
“And you make it impossible to walk away.” She grabs my tie and tugs my face inches from hers. “But what do you think my voice says?”

I want her to say it. The permission must come from her, and I’m dying for it. “You tell me.”

She brings her mouth to my ear and whispers, hot and sexy, “It says take me to Tahiti. Fuck me hard. Fuck me good. Fuck me senseless.”

That’s the only voice I’m listening to tonight.
