Stud Finder (1001 Dark Nights) by Lauren Blakely
Stud Finder - Lauren Blakely


Known for her masterfully written, mysteriously intriguing and dangerously tempting romances, Lauren Blakely is never afraid of trying something new.  This time around she takes the hint and jumps right on board the romantic comedy express.  Stud Finder is an extension of the sense of humor that is highlighted throughout her previous works. Dylan and Evie are just geeky enough to be adorable.  All the smarts in the world, still can't save these two from being clueless when it comes to love.  When you find yourself fantasy casting the main characters, you know you're in for a fun time.

The Sapphire Affair
The Sapphire Affair - Lauren Blakely

3.5* (Cliffhanger warning)
Jake is in the "recovery" business. He is ex-military and has found a job the suits him, he likes, and supports his siblings. Steph owns her own business, a undersea tour company. She is in the process of re-building, after getting burned by her ex. She happens to be the stepdaughter of the man Jake is tasked with investigating. 
This was fun read. I liked both Steph and Jake. Both are not only likable, but driven and after what they think is right. I not only liked them individually, but also together. This has a good combination of romance and mystery. I didn't like the ending so much; this is not wrapped up and continues in book 2. You could say cliffhanger! Which I must get! (Which is probably the whole point.....and I'm falling for it. Back when it was on sale, I bought myself (with Amazon Visa reward dollars; free!) a year long KU subscription. I will be redeeming it this month).

Release Blitz - Most Valuable Playboy


From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely, comes the swoony and oh-so-romantic title…MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY.

In MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY, the NFL starting quarterback Cooper Armstrong needs his best friend’s sister to pretend to be his girlfriend. Violet is willing, but neither one expects their boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage to turn into a full-contact sport so quickly. Find out if their fake play will become the real deal or if they can turn back the clock to when they were just friends in this sexy new standalone sports romance!

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don't let the fact that I'm the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, I'm only a player on the field. I've kept my pants zipped all season long -- and it has been long -- because nothing's more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner's recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who's dead set on winning more than a date with me.


Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.


She's my best friend's sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don't even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she's my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he's negotiating my contract. Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is -- I've been riding the bench for years.


How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!

The business suit woman raises a hand, offering forty-one hundred.


Maxine’s eyes laser in on me, and she slashes an arm through the air. “Five thousand dollars,” she says, jacking the price up by nine hundred and staking her claim. I shudder inside.


The guy’s eyes widen, and he holds up his hands. “I’m out.”


My stomach plummets when the business woman shakes her head.


“Going once?” Sierra asks, scanning the tables, looking for perhaps one last big spender. My eyes scan the crowd, too. Hell, maybe I’ll find an escape hatch. A trapdoor to drop into and disappear like in a magic act. Maybe Trent will learn to read my mind. Trent, I’ll cover you for anything you bid. Just raise that hand, name a price, and save me.

My best friend’s expression is merely curious now as he watches Maxine and Sierra, waiting for the verdict. My opportunity to play yard boy slips through my fingers.

The look in Maxine’s eyes is pure satisfaction as she waits for the final word. She winks at me, as if we have a secret. Holy shit. She thinks I want this. She thinks I want her to win me. 


A flash of chestnut brown hair in the back catches my attention. A flurry of silver. It’s Violet, hands in the air, wildly flapping over her head in the middle of the ballroom. She brings her finger to her nose. And she’s tapping it, like fucking Santa Claus coming down the chimney, and Harlan tapping his nose to signal his agent, and all the greatest solutions in the universe at once.


My heart goes crazy.


It hammers in my chest. This is like finding an open receiver a second before you’re sacked.


“Going twice,” Sierra says, trailing off as she waits.


I raise my arm and tap my nose, too. Violet is the only one who knows I need to get out of this jam. She’s the only one I mentioned it to. And she’s the only one now who can save me.


“Ten thousand dollars.”


Holy shit. Violet does not mess around with my money. Her eyes widen, as if she’s surprised she bid that high.


My gaze finds Trent. He’s staring at his sister, slack-jawed.


Sierra’s smile is bright and wide. “Ten thousand dollars. Do we have ten thousand, one hundred?”


The room is hushed. Maxine’s expression is blank. She must be shocked. She probably didn’t expect anyone to vie with her to this extent.


I tap my foot, willing Sierra to close this quickly. Just slam the door shut, please, fucking please.


“Going one. Going twice.”


I say a silent prayer. I cross my fingers. I hope.


Maxine blinks, opens her mouth, and I steel myself for a disgustingly high counter bid.

But there’s only silence. No words come. Violet has shocked her speechless. This type of bid wasn’t in Maxine’s playbook.


Sierra raises her arm. “And a night with the quarterback is sold for ten thousand dollars.”


Talk about a Hail Mary.

Big Rock Sieben Tage gehörst du mir
Big Rock - Sieben Tage gehörst du mir! -... Big Rock - Sieben Tage gehörst du mir! - Lauren Blakely,Ira Severin
















Die Frauen denken, ich bin ein arrogantes Arschloch und ein unverbesserlicher Playboy. Und das war ich auch. Bis eine Woche mein Leben für immer veränderte …


Meiner Familie zuliebe soll ich mich eine Weile zusammenreißen: Keine Sexskandale mehr! Und als perfekter braver Sohn brauche ich eine Schein-Verlobte für sieben Tage. Was läge da näher als meine beste Freundin Charlotte zu fragen? Mit so einer scharfen Frau fällt es mir nicht schwer, den verliebten Softie zu mimen. Leider kann ich seit wir im Bett gelandet an nichts anderes mehr denken als an ihren heißen Körper. Charlotte spielt ihre Rolle als meine Zukünftige perfekt – doch bei mir ist es längst viel mehr als ein Spiel …




Meine Meinung:


Ich bin durch den Klappentext auf das Buch aufmerksam geworden. Freundlicherweise hat mir der Verlag das Ebook als Rezensionsexemplar zur Verfügung gestellt. 


Der Einstieg in die Geschichte ist mir sehr leicht gelungen. Es ist sehr locker geschrieben, man lernt erst einmal den überaus selbstverliebten Spencer kennen, der sich über sein bestes Stück auslässt. Es fing also schon sehr humorvoll an. 


Des Weiteren lernt man bald seine beste Freundin und Geschäftspartnerin Charlotte kennen, die mir als Charakter gut gefallen hat. Toll fand ich auch das gute enge Verhältnis von Spencer zu seiner Familie. 


Die Grundgeschichte fand ich sehr interessant, dass er seine beste Freundin dazu überredet, bei dieser Schein-Verlobung mitzumachen. Mir kam es aber alles etwas zu einfach gemacht vor, dass sie darauf eingeht und dass sie dann auch auf einmal Gefühle füreinander entwickeln.


Es wurden auch einige Dinge immer mehrmals wiederholt z.B. ein Streich, den er seiner Schwester als Kind gemacht hat und sie sich immer noch rächen will, was sie ihm ständig vorhält. Das fand ich etwas nervig. 


Ich muss auch sagen, dass mir die erotischen Szenen nicht immer so zugesagt haben. 


Alles in allem war dies eine nette Lektüre für zwischendurch, konnte mich aber leider nicht so ganz begeistern und überzeugen. Ich hatte mir ein bißchen mehr versprochen, da die Grundgeschichte wirklich sehr interessant war. Aufgrund des Schreibstils werde ich die Autorin im Auge behalten. Von mir bekommt das Buch 3,5 Sterne.

Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely
Most Valuable Playboy - Lauren Blakely


Lauren Blakely is one of the hardest authors to review. She can deliver the goods, like nobodies business, but it's hard to put into words your thoughts without giving too much away. Most Valuable Playboy is another diamond. Whether you love or hate Cooper, the delight comes from getting inside the mind of a semi reformed playboy. He's cocky, famous and clueless when it comes to women. One in particular blows his mind and runs off with his heart. Violet is everything he desires, but never knew he wanted. Life is about to get interestingly complicated in this laugh out loud, irresistible courtship. Ms. Blakely is always a sure bet for an entertaining read.
