    Can we just say that Lauren Blakely is Queen of the Rom-Com. The question is what do you do when your best friends sister is someone you want to be more than friends with but you don’t want to disrespect the bro-code. That is the dilemma that Jason Reynolds seems to have. A man known around as The Modern Gentleman Of New York, Best Man for Hire and a Fantastic Friend & Brother but what he wants to add to that is making Truly Goodman more than a...

    RomCom perfection from the incredible Lauren Blakely! This is a sweet, flirty, charming, sexy and funny friends to lovers story that also has the best friend’s little sister dilemma thrown in for good measure. Jason, the sexy Brit is so swoonworthy, charming and funny. He is also Malone’s best friend. Truly is a sweet, funny, smart businesswoman who owns her own bar, and also happens to be Malone’s sister.

    This book left me gratified! 5 starsI love Lauren Blakely rom-coms, and this book gave me such gratification! I laughed, I smiled, I swooned, so it had everything I love in a rom-com! Jason and Truly were magic together, even when they were stubborn and I wanted to slap them upside the head! I love that Truly was a strong woman with her own business and had strong relationships with her brother and friends. Jason really was the modern gentleman b...

    **ARC provided courtesy of the Author**Instant Gratification was one of my most anticipated books this year and wow, did it ever deliver! Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes and nobody writes it better than Lauren Blakely. These characters popped right off the page and the book was full of such heart and humor-and a healthy dose of heat-that I was drawn in from the start and didn't want it to end. I would give this more than five stars...

    OMG!! I swooned and squirmed for most of this audiobook. I've been waiting for Jason and Truly for a while, and it was amazing! I swear Jason has the dirtiest mouth--good thing--or it could be I love everything Shane East narrates. I think Lauren added a bit more heat on his tongue. And Truly was no slouch with her own dirty talking skills. Watching these two figure out how they felt about each other, when everyone else already knew, was like wat...

    I didn't totally gel with this book. I found myself having to try and stay in it for quite a bit of the book. That's not to say that I didn't love Jason and his quirky sense of humour. Plus the book cover certainly didn't hurt him (swoon!). And I liked Truly - she was a pretty solid character.Jason Reynolds is an Englishman in New York working both as a fill in groomsman at weddings while also branding a career as an advice guru - the Modern Gent...

    Lauren has done it again. Instant Gratification is a friends to lovers/best friend’s sister story. Truly is the sister of Malone, the hero from Satisfaction Guaranteed and Jason is his best friend. Truly and Jason have always keep it on the friends side of the relationship for several reasons with one of them being Malone. That is until they crossed that line from friends to more than friends. They decide to keep it simple and just stay friends...

    Instant Gratification is the second book in the Always Satisfied series by the fabulous and talented Lauren Blakely. Queen LB strikes again with her wit, sexiness, humor and memorable characters. This friends to lovers romance is sweet, sexy, funny and steamy! It can be read as a standalone, but I don’t know why you would want to do that. Go and read/listen to Satisfaction Guaranteed. Story:If you already did then you remember Jason, Malone's b...

    3.5*Instant Gratification is another steamy read from Lauren Blakely. This time we’re treated to a blossoming brother’s best friend romance between Jason and Truly, who are themselves good friends. But Malone, Truly’s twin brother, is Jason’s best friend, so after sharing one steamy weekend months ago, Jason and Truly have put their attraction to the side and are now “safely” back in the friend zone. Yeah, okay. That might have worked...

    The Queen of Rom/Com is back. Instant Gratification is about Jason and Truly. A little forbidden romance – Truly is Malone’s twin sister and his best friend. Truly is supposed to be off limits but that didn’t stop the little romp in the hay they had in the past. Okay so it was supposed to be a one-time deal. Jason is a successful groomsman for hire thanks to his looks and a sexy accent. Truly is gorgeous, independent business woman. An odd ...

    3.5 starsInstant Gratification is the second book in the Always Satisfied series by Lauren Blakely.Truly is Malone's sister from Satisfaction Guaranteed and Jason his friend. Malone himself makes an appearance or two in this book. The stories of the couples from the next two books were also teased. It was cruel since both books seemed very good. All the stories in the series have couples that share history and that worries me a bit, to be honest....

    The story of Jason and Truly is one of my favorites, friends to lovers but it’s also a brother’s best friend. Which is Malone! So if you haven’t listened to Satisfaction Guaranteed you really should it is just as amazing. But I don’t really think you have to have read that book to really enjoy this one. Jason and Truly’s connection sparks from the very first scene you can’t help but be rooting for them. They are both very work-oriente...

    5 PERFECTION STARS!! This book was perfection with Jason and Truly. These two have all the chemistry, banter and the sexy times are off the charts. I could not put this book down. Lauren Blakely sucks us readers into her story land and you never want to leave. You should definitely read this book, but I would say read book 1.

    5 star review of Instant Gratification (Always Satisfied #2) by Lauren BlakelyLauren Blakely has become one of my go to authors for romantic comedy books; there is something about her writing that gets to me every time. This is the second book in the series and can be read as a stand alone but honestly I would grab Satisfaction Guaranteed as well, it was just as good. This is Jason Reynolds and Truly Goodman and Instant Gratification is a friends...

    Instant Gratification is book two in the Always series and it was as good as the last and this time it is about Malone's best friend Jason and Malone's twin sister Truly. (I just love these names! lol) Jason is a sexy as hell brit that bleeds sex appeal, you can almost feel it as you read into this book, and others that he is featured in, so when I heard this book was about him. I was beyond excited and Truly was meant to be off-limits to Jason b...

He is a dapper English gentleman who is living in Manhattan giving help to the masses on manners and men’s advice, she is the owner of a Gin Joint. They have many things in common especially being workaholics. Jason’s best friend Malone happens to be Truly’s twin brother, the main reason they feel they can not be together.

    “I received a review copy from Author and voluntarily provided an honest review. This does not affect the opinion of the book or the content of the review.”Book Review: I’m not a big fan of the best friend’s sister trope but since Lauren Blakely was the author I had to read and this story did not disappoint at all. I loved the banter between Jason and Truly in this story. You could cut the sexual tension with a knife. The chemistry was of...

    Well here we are with another LB book with awesome casting.A friends-to-lovers troupe which I love.Jason Reynolds is a best man, No, actually, not a best man, THE best man. He runs a successful Best-man-For-Hire company, and he is pretty damn good at it, he also adds the service of his “plus-one” with his best friends’ sister Truly (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the name!!)They are very good friends, with lots of fun and banter between them, and there i...

    Instant Gratification is Book 2 in Lauren’s “Always Satisfied” series......aptly named because that’s how I always feel after reading a Lauren Blakely book. Fun characters, witty dialog, sexy scenes...what’s not to love? This is Jason & Truly’s Book, a friends to lovers story complicated by the fact that Truly’s twin brother Malone is Jason’s best friend. Their attempts to stay in the friend zone are doomed to utter failure by the...

    I love brother’s best friend romances and I LOVE friends-to-lovers romances. With her new release, Instant Gratification, Lauren Blakely combines the two tropes into one sexy forbidden romance, following two friends whose libidos are in a battle with their consciences. An off-limits romance has never been so alluring than in this achingly sweet, outrageously steamy, oh-so-swoon-worthy rom-com.Longtime friends, Jason Reynolds and Truly Goodman, ...

    5 SMOOCHES!It’s not a secret that I’m a huge Lauren Blakely fan, but of all of her awesome books, and there are so many, it’s her male point-of-view stories that are my favorite. Blakely’s innate ability to get into her hero’s heads and giving her readers their thoughts, feelings, reactions and realizations genuinely and authentically. There is something about experiencing the story solely through the hero’s perspective that makes it ...

    All The StarsThis was just so marvelous - the whole cast audiobook production was such an amazing experience. I had so much fun listening to this amazing voices. Andi and Shane did such an wonderful Job bringing Jason and Truly to life. Of course Lauren made them those two spectacular people in the firs place (but what is new - not me falling in love with her characters - as always).It was also such a pleasure to see all the characters from the p...

    ***ARC Provided by the Author***This book was good, delicious, fun. It was satisfying, and while it may not have been "instant" it was definitely a fabulous ride to get to the end of this story.I loved the banter, the conversations between them were so well done. You were pulled into the characters, wanting them to be happy and wanting them to figure out how to go from friends to lovers and keep everyone around them happy....including themselves....

    Once again Lauren has written a romcom for the ages. It is wickedly awesome as she continues this series. Jason is the perfect British Swoon worthy hero. Jason is in love with his best friends sister. He has been warned over and over again by Malone that Truly is off limits. Truly is the beautiful bar owner who is a magician in creating drinks and ambiance and she is equally attracted to playboy Jason. Jason runs a best man for hire business and ...
