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 dozen times. Little did I know I’d meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I’d learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating. But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal — No strings. No expectations.
Our arrangement worked well enough until the day I needed a lot more from him…
Let me just say, this whole part-time lover thing was her idea. I’d have gone all-in from the start, but hey, when a gorgeous, brilliant woman invites you into her bed, and only her bed…well, I said yes.
But then, one hysterical phone call from my brother later, begging me to find myself a wife so grandfather’s business stays in the family, and I need a promotion with Elise. Turns out a full-time husband suits her needs too, and a temporary marriage of convenience ought to do the trick, until we can simply untie the knot…
As long as no one finds out…
As long as no one gets hurt…
As long as no one falls in love…
But our ending was one I never saw coming.
The audiobook is narrated by
Shane East and Grace Grant!

Part-Time Lover was everything I expected it to be and more. Sweet, funny, and so damn swoon worthy. Lauren Blakely knows just how to pull at your heartstrings and put a smile on your face. Loved this book!
Christian and Elise’s story will have you believing in fate and second chances.
One of my favorite parts of the book was actually in the very beginning when Elise is on vacation with a friend and sees Christian doing yoga, naked yoga. That would make any girls day. Christian tells her to meet him later that night. A slight miscommunication has them miss each other.
A year goes by and fate brings these two back together. If everything could ever be that easy, Christian knows that Elise is his one and refuses to give up on her. Elise doesn’t give in so easy and definitely gives him a run for his money.
As usual Lauren Blakely gives us another amazing and swoon worthy read. You will be falling for Christian from the moment you meet him and your face will hurt from the smile that doesn’t leave your face while reading their story.
Loved this book and can’t wait to get my greedy hands on Lauren’s next book.
“Characters that are as bold and carefree as they are vulnerable and introspective, banter that's rife with wit, humor, and innuendo, and a teasing, agonizingly slow-building romance make Part-Time Lover a gripping love story. From start to finish, Part-Time Lover will have you laughing and swooning and falling in love with love.” -Yvette, Nose Stuck in a Book
“Jam-packed with Blakely's keen attention to detail, her fabulous sense of humor and a sexy, sweet, consuming romance, Part-Time Lover was a heart-fluttering, full of hope joy to read.” -Red Cheeks Reads
