Lauren Blakely is an author that has written a lot of books, but I am just now discovering her work. Satisfaction Guaranteed is available today and I was really excited abotu this one. A big thanks to the author for providing me with an ARC to read and review. Today I will tell you what I thought of this story!
Satisfaction Guaranteed, the all-new sexy, second chance romance from Lauren Blakely is NOW LIVE on ALL RETAILERS!!!
Look, she started it.
She issued me a challenge I couldn’t back down from. Make her purr like no man has done before.
Fine, she’s my business partner’s daughter. All right, I’m also working in the same damn practice with her. Yes, she happens to be my ex-fling. But that was seven years ago, and it was barely a week-long thing.
Except, Sloane is still the one I can’t stop thinking of — brilliant, sexy, captivating Sloane. Maybe a week of taking her to new heights will get her out of my head.
So what if we spend a few nights on the town too? So what if I romance her across Manhattan? It’s all in the name of scientific pursuit of more magnificent Os.
Until the rules change…

This is my second book by Lauren Blakely and it didn’t disappoint me at all! Then again, who can go wrong with a handsome veterinarian that sings to cats?!? Satisfaction Guaranteed sucked me in from the start and before I knew it, I was reading the last chapter!
A lot of romance books mostly have the female POV and sometimes it’s mixed, but Satisfaction Guaranteed is mostly told from Malone’s POV and I really enjoyed this. I loved reading about how the man in the story is thinking and the little chapters with Sloane’s notes or texts were so much fun. This gave the perfect balance I needed to connect with both the characters.
There’s always been a connection between Malone and Sloane, but when Malone becomes the junior partner in Sloane’s father’s clinic it kind of becomes a forbidden romance. When she shows up seven years later and they find out they will be working together, this story gets interesting.
Satisfaction Guaranteed is the perfect balance between romance, steamy scenes and humor. I enjoyed the banter between the characters and seeing them get to know each other again, in many different ways. The other characters in this book were also a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to reading more about them.
What I loved the most about Satisfaction Guaranteed is there wasn’t too much drama. Of course, things happen, but it wasn’t over the top. This is a book without a lot of angst and that will leave a big smile on your face. Both characters are a lot of fun, mature and a bit sassy. The chemistry was there from the start and didn’t need much explanation. The only thing I would’ve liked was a bit more of them getting to know each other outside of the sexy lessons. That would’ve made it a 5 star read for me.
If you’re looking for a steamy romance with amazing characters that will make you laugh (and some sweet animals), definitely pick up Satisfaction Guaranteed!
I meet Sloane’s gaze then go for it. Because this night has only one destination. “We should go to Tahiti.”
“Too long a flight?”
She lets go of my hand and holds up her thumb and forefinger. “Maybe a little. Not that I’m turning down a trip to Tahiti. Wait? Are you saying you want to take me to Tahiti? Because I can pack like that.”
Smiling, I slide my hand to her ass, squeezing. I whisper roughly in her ear, “I’m saying I’d like to escape with you. Like we’re getting away for the night. Let’s fuck away all this hot, wild desire.”
She exhales then goes quiet, perhaps lost in thought. “But I thought we were going to resist kissing.”
I brush the backs of my fingers along her jaw. “We already failed that test.”
She pouts. “I was supposed to be an un-vixen.”
“Didn’t work. You’re the opposite, and I want you so fucking much.” I press against her. “You have me so wound up. I’m pretty sure you’re wound up too.”
She pushes back. “You know I am. You know I want you too. That was never the issue.”
I have to get closer to her. I need to have her. “Let’s give in. Just once.” I slide my fingers into her hair, she leans her head against my palm, and I continue making my case. “I can take you places. I can make you feel extraordinary, like I’ve always wanted to.”
She hums. “You’re making it hard to say no.”
“True. I’m very hard to resist.”
A smile spreads across her face. “You are, Malone. You’re terribly, impossibly hard to resist.” She nibbles on her bottom lip. “One night. Our secret. What happens in Tahiti stays in Tahiti.”
“Absolutely,” I say as my dick high-fives me.
“And where is this alternate universe?”
I curl my fingers around her hip bone. “My place isn’t far. There’s also a hotel down the block. Either way, I intend to strip you naked, get my lips all over you, and make you feel as fucking good as you looked when you were watching me sing.”
She shudders. “I looked good when I was watching you? How so?”
I run my thumb over her hip, rubbing in slow, sensual circles. “You’re so seductive. You looked so incredibly alluring. You looked exactly as you are—the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met.” My fingers stray to her belly, gliding down the fabric of her dress toward my final destination. “And you and I have unfinished business.”
She leans her head back, and the most delicious moan ever recorded escapes her lips. When she raises her face, she tap-dances her fingers down my chest then runs them over the silk of my tie. “Are you saying we’re going to finish the business tonight?”
“Yes, and then tomorrow . . . we can be friends again.” The thought pains me, but I know this is the only way to deal with our reality.
“Exactly,” she says, nodding her agreement. “We take a trip tonight. We get away to a remote island. And tomorrow we go back to the real world?” She’s seriously considering this. Hell, I’ve already considered it six ways to Sunday in the span of ten seconds, and I say it’s a brilliant plan.
“Let me take care of you tonight. Let me spend the night worshipping your body and driving you wild with pleasure.”
“You say these things . . .”
I grin. “And?”
“And you make it impossible to walk away.” She grabs my tie and tugs my face inches from hers. “But what do you think my voice says?”
I want her to say it. The permission must come from her, and I’m dying for it. “You tell me.”
She brings her mouth to my ear and whispers, hot and sexy, “It says take me to Tahiti. Fuck me hard. Fuck me good. Fuck me senseless.”
That’s the only voice I’m listening to tonight.
