A funny, fast paced, and sexy novel.
I’ve started to read more and more second chance romances lately, this trope has been growing on me. It’s so beautiful to see a couple falling in love all over again – if I can forgive them for ruining it the first time. This story was told from both the hero and heroine’s POV.
The hero was a charming dirty talker, with a greek body, and a successful career. Tyler was in the path of redemption, seeking forgiveness and Delaney to trust him again. He had to work hard to seduce and get her back, it wasn’t easy, but once they started touching each other, it was explosive. I loved how Tyler wasn’t the typical or predictable alpha, he was just eager to participate, isn’t that a huge turn on? While the sex scenes were burning hot and wild, their story was more than just sex. In the end the big question was: do people change?
“I’ll grab his neck, rope my hands in his hair and beg him.
I’ll absolutely beg him.”
The secondary characters were not only supportive but also humorous and chatty. Lauren Blakely wrote short chapters and constantly switched POVs, which kept the story fast paced, and the reader, hooked. The Hot One had a playful romance and was a very entertaining read. It ended perfectly. I look forward to reading more books by the author.
I voluntarily reviewed an eARC.
