From #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a swoony new standalone romance...

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…

With all the heat, heart and humor readers have come to expect, this newest Lauren Blakely standalone will make you laugh, swoon and feel like you’re falling in love!


  • I just love a good nanny story!

    By tsmb02(Sue G.)
    I just love a good falling for the nanny story! Simon Travers is a divorced dad of the cutest little girl, Hayden. He is also the fantasy of every other nanny and they've nicknamed him "The Sexy One"....tall, gorgeous and so sexy! He is also sweet, kind, smart, funny and the best dad ever! That is why Abby Becker has fallen for him. Problem though is that she needs this job so she keeps her longing to herself. I really loved the conversations Abby and Simon had. It was fun, silly and just so sexy at times. I loved how both of these characters longed for the other but knew they shouldn't because they didn't want to lose what they had. But the minute they decided to forge ahead....BOOM! These two exploded. I loved them together. They were both fun and quirky at the same time. Add Hayden into the mix and it just worked. Simon's ex-wife, Miriam added a little fun into the mix. Loved the scene where Abby first met her! Priceless. Overall I really enjoyed this story and the characters. Great read and I highly recommend it!

    Simon and Abby were just adorable, denying their love for one another. Abby the nanny for Simon not an original story but a cute one. Loved it actually. Simon was a good man.

    Simon and Abby each have a hidden but tremendous attraction for the other. In the way is the fact that she's the nanny to his five year old daughter. What happens when they actually do something about that attraction is amazing!
  • Another great book!

  • Deliciously good

    The Sexy One, is so deliciously good. I loved every minute of it! Simon.. Oh Simon. Single, successful father. Who loves his daughter beyond anything. He found a great nanny in Abby. Who is also this very, energetic, almost has that youthfulness about her. I could honestly, see why Simon would want her so much. And good lord! the passion. The need they have for each other. I felt it on every page. I’ve read so many of Lauren’s books and she truly has this gift. Creating these amazing characters, that you can really connect with. Really feel what they are feeling. You root for them, through out this story. I love how, these two come together. How there’s not this extreme amount of drama. It’s just the pureness of falling for each other. I feel sorry, for anyone who has not had the pleasure of reading Lauren’s books. The writing, just really draws you in. I felt almost like I was watching this movie, playing right out in front of me. As a reviewer, I know what I love. So whenever I see Lauren’s coming out with something new. I can’t wait to jump in. I really jumped into The Sexy One, had it completely finished within a few hours. Overall, of course I give this Five Boundless Stars. The whole google translate thing still has me laughing....Lissa

    I love Simon and Abby what a great book couldn't put it down! 😍

    I really loved it. Most books will have the girl and the guy breaking up by the end then getting back together. I loved how in this one they just tried to resist to each other but when they started they shared their thoughts and tried to come up with something that can satisfy both parties.
  • Amazing

    By megie harrington
    This book is a quick read but you get into the story deep and fast. Falling in love with all three main characters. I kept feeling like this will never work out but Simon made sure it did. Absolutely loved it. Can't wait to read future books from this author.
