Thank you so much to Lauren Blakely and her team for the advance review copy of Lauren’s latest release, Satisfaction Guaranteed.
Lauren Blakely has definitely written your next beach or lakeside read for the summer. This is one of her best stories of the year so far.
Here is the Goodreads synopsis…
“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…”
Here are my more detailed thoughts…
- Characters: Malone and Sloane are the main characters of Lauren’s latest release. Malone is the smooth-talking, pantry dropping veterinary who has been hung up on Sloane for years. He is such a good male lead because he is a combination of his confidence surrounding how he is good at his job and the insecurity of his future both professionally and romantically. Sloane finds home for strays and has her own charming personality.
- Setting: The story takes place in New York City, which is a classic Lauren and contemporary romance setting.
- Pacing: Lauren Blakely rocks pacing. The ending did come a little quickly but I think it was cause I was so consumed by the story I didn’t realize how close I was to the end.
- Romance: The chemistry between Malone and Sloane was palpable. For Malone, Sloane was the one that got away, but her being the daughter of his boss/mentor is a block to their relationship that he struggles to overcome. I do not want to spoil why the book is called Satisfaction Guaranteed but the plan that the title alludes to leads to some of the steamiest scenes Lauren has ever written.
Satisfaction Guaranteed receives four out of five stars.
