Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely

Part-Time Lover

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 do...

    He captured her interest as the highlight of her boat tour. Who would not admire a beautifully handsome man doing handstands and yoga completely naked by the canal? When she shouted to him "Bravo!", she caught his interest enough for him to ask her on a date. Was it Fate then, when they met again a year later? The chemistry was off the charts! Two characters not looking for love or commitment make an arrangement that will have you laughing, swoon...

    This was a couldn't-put-down-sizzling-buildup-yummy-kind-of-read.I don't know if it was the early summer heat, the holiday weekend, or that Lauren Blakely just gets better with each book I read.  Part-Time Lover checked off all of my boxes for a cozy up on the couch and do nothing kind of day. Christian and Elise were a fabulous pair and I loved reading every minute of their story.Elise has been hurt by love before. Married and now widowed the w...
  • Michella
    An amazing read about fate and second chances... Christian is definitely swoon worthy, his personality is so sexy and flirty you can’t help but fall in love. A read you’ll devour from their first encounter until the last page. I laughed as my heart melted and fanned when the heat turned up. I highly recommend this read!
  • Konny
    Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely is the newest rom-com in a series of standalones.Christian Ellison is the man who captivated Elises attention by unique sports demonstration. Yes, thats a bit vague, but lets stay it by that. Elise is out of a bad relationship and lost her trust in men. She wants a no-string affair. Christian knows that shes his one, but also shes skittish. They agree on a arrangement, but neither is happy about that. When fate d...
  • Laurie
    Fate, does it exist? Lauren Blakely’s newest book will have you pondering that thought. Part Time Lover is told in a dual POV (which I love). Christian is a man happy on life, who just happens to like to flash tourists on the canal in Denmark by doing handstands. Elise and Christian “interact” due to his antics on the canal, ending with a date request. Does “fate” intervene and prevent the couple from meeting that night? Does “fate”...

    Aaaahhhh!!! This book made me so happy. I’ve just finished reading it with the dopiest smile on my face. It’s a warm and wonderful story of chance meetings and fateful destinations.Elise Durand is enjoying the sights of the Danish canals when she spies a naked man doing handstands and gets propositioned by him.Christian Ellison is a young, enormously wealthy and newly retired businessman, but life after the office doesn’t sit well with him ...
  • Amo Thomson
    Fate or a meeting of chance? However you look at life fate I do believe has a hand in putting you in the right place at the right time. Christian- fun flirty confident but not #cocky ;) sexy as hell and taking life day by day. Elise - hardworking, gorgeous, confident, living inside the lines, knows what she wants and taking life by the balls. Both of these characters I love that they are strong and independent and don’t “need” other people ...
  • Kara Hildebrand (Two Book Pushers)
    Part-Time Lover is Lauren Blakely's new sexy, sweet, fun, light-hearted romance about how sometimes, part-time lovers can become more than you ever thought they could. Lauren knows how to pull at my heart strings, make me laugh and swoon and she always gives me exactly what I need when I need it. Part-Time Lover has the same feel as Trophy Husband (one of my all-time favorite books of Lauren's). We met both Christian and Elise in Wanderlust and t...
  • Crystal
    Oh Christian, how I love you! I liked you a lot in your friend's book, but in this one you really shine as one of the best of Lauren Blakely's boys. Sexy, sweet, smart, and shockingly handsome. Like there was ever a chance Elise (or I) could resist you. One of my favorite tropes done exquisitely well by one of my favorite authors! Bonus for the Paris details, which made me want to go back there even more!

It’s a hopeful and romantic story of fate, second chances, and letting go.

    5 Fate's Timely Dance Stars* * * * * Spoiler FreeOh, how we never know what we have control over and how much is destined to be...I think there can be a mix of both and we just need to be aware and open to the possibilities. Lauren Blakley took that concept in her book Wanderlust and carried into Part-Time Lover. Wanderlust introduced us to people who grabbed life by two hands and lived.We had Elise whose quote, "We should enjoy every day, and ea...
  • Yvette ~ Nose Stuck in a Book
    Ever since Griffin’s friend, Christian, and Joy’s friend, Elise, were introduced in Wanderlust, I had a sneaking suspicion we might be seeing more of them. The moment Elise mentioned her preference for a “part-time lover,” that suspicion became a certainty (of course, it helped that the title for Lauren Blakely’s next book was already released). Little did I know that Christian and Elise’s history was more complex than I initially ima...
  • Sarah - Musings of the Modern Belle
    ***AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW***5 Hand Stand CROWNSLauren Blakely’s new romantic comedies set in Europe have absolutely swept me away. They all the have the witty banter and insane chemistry we have come to expect from her rom-coms, but they also have this essence to them, one that makes you want to pack your bag and travel the world. With each book my wanderlust only increases. Like almost all of her couples, Christian and Elise have instant ...

    “Yes. I believe in fate. But mostly I believe in you.”4 fated starsI have been so excited to get my hands on this book! Christian and Elise were introduced in the fabulous Wanderlust, both fun, confident, and a little wild, and from their unique first introduction and their chemistry-filled, all-too-brief interaction, I knew there would be fireworks - and I was not disappointed! Christian and Elise’s standalone story is full of fantastic ch...

    3,8. Achei que a autora descreveu vários lugares, me perdendo um pouco na história, e não gostei de como ela desenvolveu a história, sei lá, tipo, tem conteúdo mas não amei.Não vi nenhuma conexão da história com o blog da personagem. Não leria de novo.
  • Kim
    We met Christian and Elise in Wanderlust as they are friends of Joy and Griffin. Elise is French-American, lives in Paris, and owns a marketing company. She is blunt, bold, confident, caring, but also skeptical and guarded when it comes to love. She has been burned and does not plan for that to happen ever again. But she is not sure what would make her feel truly happy again.Christian is Danish-British and shares time between Paris and Copenhagen...
  • bookbruin
    This was such a fun and sexy marriage of convenience romance! Though the hero and heroine were introduced in the book Wanderlust, Part-Time Lover can be enjoyed as a standalone.Christian and Elise are both driven and independent individuals. They each have some emotional baggage that has left them jaded about love. A chance encounter (or is it fate?) in Denmark throws them into each other's orbits, but a simple mistake keeps them from meeting unt...
  • Elizabeth Clinton
    No matter where the story takes place either in New York or in Paris you know Lauren Blakely is going to make you fall. Location is everything but when you meet the man in that beautiful location and he leaves you with a fantastic memory and an even better impression you can’t help knowing that fate brings him to you. Elise Durand is a woman who has her own marketing company, great friends and family but what she never thought she would have is...
  • Marybeth
    Lauren Blakely does it again and continues to be one of my favorite romance/romcom writers. She has such a wonderful writing style and great sense of humor which give her the ability to create such amazing characters you can’t help but fall in love with. Part Time Lover is definitely full time on romance, chemistry, sweetness, fun, and flirty sexy banter. I adore Christian and Elise and I love how they (sort of) meet for the first time. Unfortu...

    ***ARC Provided by the Author***Lauren Blakely spends more time in Paris, and in Copenhagen, in this title...and, as it was in Wanderlust, the scenes in Paris are a pleasure and you feel like you are in Paris. If you have been, there are moments that will give you a chuckle "rue something or other" was hilarious, and relateable if you have been to the city, and an amusing glimpse into it for those who have never been there. Copenhagen is a city t...
  • Laurie
    With her every book, I believe more and more that Lauren Blakely is a wizard. The stories that she creates and the chemistry that she conjures between her characters is pure magic. Her newest release Part-Time Lover is a perfect example of that. From the very first word, I fell under the spell of this glorious book and remain so now. This is a temporary marriage of convenience story (my catnip) between two people who share a yummy friendship and ...
  • Ryan - Sweet Red Reader
    In one of the Facebook groups I'm in, one of the moderators asked what would we bring if we were stranded on a desert island. My immediate response was "WiFi," which I clearly thought was really clever at the time, but the real genius is the woman that said "Lauren Blakely so she could just tell me new stories she makes up. Better than a Kindle!" Well, I wholeheartedly second that. I was done for within the first 15% of the book and Elise and Chr...
