A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely!I’ll say this about Christian — he made one hell 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.



Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely is a standalone romantic comedy about two characters we met from Wanderlust.  It’s not needed to read Wanderlust before reading Part-Time Lover, but if you haven’t read it yet, it is a must read.

This novel stars Elise and Christian who first met from afar, by happenstance, while Elise was on a boat tour and Christian was on the docks performing handstands on the docks for the tourists that sailed by. It isn’t until a year later in Paris that they meet again in-person through their best friends.  The attraction that sparked a year before is still strong as they begin to get to know each other on Friday dates and become friends and so much more.

However, before their relationship heats up to the next level, Christian receives a phone call from his brother and soon he finds his part-time lover, is now his full-time wife.

A well-written and absolutely romantic story, Ms. Blakely creates another pair of endearing and fleshed out characters with heart  and soul.

As an audiobook, what is already a wonderful book to read, gets a whole lot better!  Reading the story, I loved Elise and Christian’s flirtiness and how we get a lot of time to see them as a couple and learn more about them throughout the novel. However, hearing their voices through the narrators of Shane East and Grace Grant really brought these two characters to life.

The narrators capture the wit and humor of Lauren Blakely’s characters, as well as their emotion and warmth. The pacing the story was read at was very well done, and I really felt the voices fit the characters and they maintained the balance of humor and romance   that I enjoy so much when reading Lauren Blakely’s books.

Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely is fun, sexy and romantic. I very much recommend listening to it on audiobook, as well as reading. These characters (and the narrators who voice them) will make you fall in love with them.
