Publisher's Summary

A sexy stand-alone romance written by number one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely and award-winning romance narrator Joe Arden!

Every man knows there are lines you don't cross. Like this one - don't bang your boss' little sister.

Too bad I didn't know sexy, clever, irresistible London is related to the guy who signs my paychecks. Would have been helpful to have that intel before I took her out on that first date, before I kissed her on the beach, before I made plans to take her home that night. 

But now I know, and I'm going to be so damn disciplined. I'm a good guy, after all. And good guys don't break the golden rules of the bro code. I'm going to follow the heck out of all the rules. I won't break a single damn one. 

Even when London asks me to help her with a work project. One that has us working late every night, all alone, in my tiny apartment. 

One that tests every ounce of willpower I have. One that is driving me out of my ever loving mind. But I resist. 

Until the night she issues a challenge I can't refuse. 

The audiobook includes cameo appearances from Erin Mallon, Emma Wilder, and Maxine Mitchell!

A must listen!

What a fun and flirty book! I listened to it all at once as I couldn't put it down! Love the cute and sexy banter between the characters and the hot sexy time scenes. so many laugh out loud moments as well! The stripper names had me busting a gut! Enjoyed the Q and A at the end and the outtakes. Can really tell everyone enjoyed narrating this book. The ladies sound like they had the best time working together and Joe Arden was brilliant as always! So glad Joe and Lauren collaborated together on this book and I surely hope to see more books from Joe Arden in the future!

So good I'm starting it all over again!

This was everything I hoped it would be and more! Teddy is such a sweet guy and London is fabulous. Full of pop cultural throw backs and funny moments. London and friends text messages slayed me! A story that disproves the saying nice guys finish last.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I was very curious about how this book was going to be since I love Lauren's work and this is Joe's first time writing. I gotta say I wasn't sure at first but as the book and the characters started to come to life I absolutely started to get the Lauren Blakely vibe but also I could feel the difference from her other books which is obviously where Joe comes in. In the beginning it felt light and fun but then it went into a little deep direction and sexy too! I didn't realize at first just how much Teddy's past was holding him back and had affected his future but really enjoyed seeing him overcome and move forward even with his fears still present. London was a great female lead, she was very forward and I loved that. I especially enjoyed the side characters in this book, from London's girlfriends who were so funny but also super supportive to her brother who was even more supportive. I loved the HEA and I all the epilogues, these authors didn't leave up wondering about anything! *+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+ I also have to say I seriously loved the extra's in this audiobook. The Q & A with Joe & Lauren was very eye opening and really felt very honest and the bloopers were hilarious!!!!! Listening to all the girls laughing had me cracking up. *+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+ Now lets talk about Joe's narration!!! I will be honest here and say before this book I have enjoyed Joe's narration but this book really was a huge leap in my opinion for his narration. I don't know if it was because he knew the story so well already or if he was just so proud of this book but it seriously showed in his narration. I think he shined in this book more than I have ever heard him before. He captured all the emotions, banter and fun perfectly. Great job!

Sparks are flying in this 5 star listen!

What I loved most about this book was the immediate spark between Teddy and London. The wonderfully sexy show build up of their friendship and right on into lovers was absolutely perfect! From their sense of humor to their love of dogs, you can't help but love Teddy and London. I really enjoyed how Lauren and Joe brought in more of London by using the text messages between her and her besties, Olive and Emory. Joe did a wonderful job bringing Teddy to life from the pages of the book. He gave us that sweet and super sexy good guy that Teddy was described to be. Erin, Emma & Maxine stole the show in their text message performances of London, Olive and Emory, especially in the extra outtakes. Reminded me of crazy conversations I've had with friends in the past. Please listen all the way to the end of the audiobook for an author interview and outtakes. The outtakes are NOT TO BE MISSED!

Amazing debut

Loved Joe's debut novel! The aspects I love from Lauren Blakely's books are found in this collaboration - mature characters, witty banter and organic conflict. The easter eggs from both Lauren Blakely's books and Joe's life were so fun to discover. You can hear how connected Joe is to Teddy in the narration. I hope to see more collabs from them in the future!

HOW TO GET LUCKY...Buy this book now

This book was fantastic. If I didn’t know that this was a book co-written by a first time author, I would have never been able to tell. This was truly a great romance put together perfectly. Teddy and London were just the cutest and most fun couple I’ve read in a long time. There was the perfect amount of fun flirty banter mixed with the growing emotions of a new relationship. Both of these characters wanted to do what was right but ultimately the heart will lead you down the path you are destined for. Loved the little glimpses of London’s friends during their text exchanges. I have loved Joe Arden the narrator for a while now. He’s one of my all time favorites. I can say now that he will be one of my favorite authors as well. He and Lauren couldn’t have written a better book, it’s that great. I truly hope he continues to write books, whether that’s with other authors or eventually solo. He will be a one-click for me from now on. Congratulations Joe on your first (of many I hope) books. It was so much fun to listen to Joe narrate his own words. You can almost feel the excitement through his narration. Add in Erin, Emma and Maxine...this is really audio gold. Couldn't love this book more.

Fun & swoon-worthy

I loved this audiobook! In this heartwarming forbidden-love romance, Teddy and London are easy to fall in love with! Each ancillary character added depth and humor to the story. I loved the ending, but really didn’t want it to end! Congrats to Joe Arden for what is sure to be a wildly successful release! As well as to Lauren Blakely for another fantastic work! *The bloopers are hilarious!!

Gah! This was the BEST!

There was so much hype and build up to this book as the first book co-written by Joe Arden and Lauren Blakey and the bar was set very high. I am thrilled to honestly say that it was everything I expected and so much more! You could say that the story of London and Teddy was insta-love, but the character development, the descriptive scenes, the detailed timeline, and the inner dialogue really made this relationship feel so organic, realistic, and believable. I adored their witty banter, their desire to listen and really get to know each other, and their willingness to believe in and follow their feelings. You could tell that Joe was more closely connected to this story than others he narrates and his pride and love for this story was a beautiful thing to experience. The brilliant trio of Erin Mallon, Emma Wilder, and Maxine Mitchell in the form of best friends sending text messages was a genius way to give us insight into London’s inner thoughts, introduce us to fantastic side characters, and give us a female POV that gave the narration and story a pop that was absolute perfection. The interview questions that Joe answered at the end were incredibly fascinating and so entertaining. And don’t even get me started on the bloopers at the end! Joe sounded like he was having so much fun (and maybe too many Red Bulls) and Erin, Emma and Maxine were the three besties having a couple of glasses of wine and having a girls night out that we all wanted to be a part of. The only thing that could be better about this book is if it were a movie!! I am so happy for this whole group and only wish I could have made it last longer. Worth every credit and then some!!

perfect ❤❤❤❤❤

I loved everything about it. Teddy and London story is such a cute love story with some steamy sexy time. It's not your usual hot carnal sex all the time kind of book but I loved the slow burn and the actual growing relationship between the main characters. joe as always gave an excellent performance but this time for me sounded more genuine like he was actually talking to one of his friends. Erin, Emma and Maxine were amazing and we need another book with these three ladies and the outtakes are hilarious. I'm sure I will be listening to this book many times.

Pure Gold

What do you get when you combine the wonderful talents of Lauren Blakely and Joe Arden?.. Pure gold, pure magic, a beautiful story. I absolutely love that this is told from the male's pov, but the way they set it up for us to get some insight into London as a person was brilliant. I love that Teddy is so real, none of the normal exaggerations you get in most romance books, just your normal good guy that you could totally fall for. And hearing Joe Arden also narrate the first book he helped write just puts this over the top for me. this is easily one of my all time favorite books. Teddy will definitely be your next book boyfriend.
