Publisher Description

That time I had the brilliant idea to ask my good friend for lessons in sex-ploration…

Awkward? Maybe. But how else is a good girl going to find out if she likes being naughty? 

And Gabe is charming, trustworthy, aces at seduction (or so I hear) and willing to give me lessons. But to guarantee it won’t ruin our friendship, I want these classes to be hypothetical more than hands-on. 

So what if he’s hella sexy? I can handle that, no problem.


I have it bad for Arden. She’s bright, brilliant, and insanely fun. When she asks for my help, I see my chance to win her sweet heart by showing her how much fun we can have getting spicy. 

Trouble is, she has a different idea of what “sex-ploration” should mean. Now I’m going to have to get really clever to win her over.

Good thing I know exactly how to upend her best laid plans.

A well-rounded delightful romance

Lauren is one of those few authors that I trust will give me a good story. I can read her books and get the sweet, steamy, romantic, and well-rounded vibes from the characters and their story. Best Laid Plans was no different. This friends-to-lovers romance was wonderfully written and I enjoyed the story. I loved the first meet between Arden and Gabe-it was funny and cute. It showed how their friendship started. As their story progressed, their friendship is at the fore-front. But what happens when a simple request is made and the possibility of more? I loved reading about Arden and Gabe trying to navigate through the sequence of events and feelings. The chemistry, the friendship, and the individual personalities made this story pop. I believed in them. I enjoyed seeing this all play out as the book progresses. I really do love these characters. Arden and Gabe were just the best in all the right ways. Another thing I loved about Lauren’s books is the connection between characters of previous and future books. It’s always a nice and fun surprise. I’m excited for what’s to come with Arden’s two best friends. Overall, a delightful read that I truly liked very much.

Fun & Sexy!

Lauren Blakely has a gift that no other person on this planet can do. She can make me sit, perfectly content, for hours on end, and read her hilariously sexy stories from start to finish. Best Laid Plans is most definitely my favorite book of hers to date! A friends to lovers romance that made me swoon, made me laugh and had me begging Arden to REALLY tell Gabe what she wanted ;) I mean, a hot fireman and a bookstore owner? Every woman’s fantasy! The slow burn in this book...oh my...so much fun, so incredibly HOT! I truly loved everything about Best Laid Plans and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for just a good, fun, sexy story <3

When Plans Change

Gabe is a truly good guy. Doesn’t hurt that he’s hot as all get out, funny and a pro at Words With Friends either. If only Arden would unfriend-zone him. Arden is a good girl wanting to break into being a bit naughty. Gabe comes to her rescue after a horrible break up and they quickly become best friends. But when she asks him to help her get some confidence with the naughty, it may be more than Gabe can bear. I loved this book! One truly likes and roots for the pair to have an HEA but enjoys the journey they have getting there. The audio book is wonderful too, as a duet version!
