The one unbreakable rule in the Man Code is this: no matter how beautiful, smart, and clever she is, do not fall in love with your best friend’s woman.
Yeah, so I screwed up big time when I fell for her.
I might have let my sin of unrequited love slide, given everything that went down in the last few years, but Lulu just walked back into my life as vibrant as ever.
And the cards are stacked against me once again. We’re working together, and the last thing I want to do is mess up her life with a forbidden office romance now that she’s finally got the fresh start she deserves.
Trouble is, she’s even more irresistible than ever, and this time around I’m not sure any code can hold me back.
Even if I stand to lose everything...
Birthday Suit is a story of life, love and regret. It’s the story of learning to let go of the past for a present with endless possibilities. One of those possibilities being LOVE.
Leo and Lulu have been friends for years. In fact, Lulu married Leo’s best friend...and Leo learned to bury his feelings for her the entire time. Now Lulu is partnering with the company Leo works for which brings them back together and brings Leo’s feelings back right along with it.
I truly enjoyed Leo and Lulu’s story. While it had the usual Lauren Blakely flare to it, this story was a tad bit more emotional and was not at all what I expected. It was great to read about more mature characters, who know what they want in life and have really lived through some ups and downs.
I highly recommend Birthday Suit...just make sure you have plenty of chocolate when you read it :)
This is such a deliciously fun RomCom!! (sorry blame all the chocolate) I was so completely entranced by Leo and Lulu throughout this book. Their interactions that include fun banter and riddles were adorable and made this such an entertaining story to read. Although they've known each other for many years, they were only ever friends because she was with their other friend Tripp. However, Leo has been in love with her forever. They have a wonderful ease about them and serious chemistry but will Lulu ever see him the way he sees her? Will he ever let her know how he feels? I was team Leo from moment one! He is smart, sexy, funny and extremely swoon-worthy. Lulu is also smart and sexy and has always enjoyed being around Leo, but has never really done it alone until now and never thought of him as more than a friend. Until now. That ending is amazing!!!This is a fun one for sure! I thoroughly enjoyed it!!
Romance and Chocolate, would could be better?
Oh my heart! Leo! I just love him. He’s sweet, he’s sexy and so swoonworhty!!!
I love how when I dive into one of Lauren’s books, I get all the feels!! This story is kind of like an old flame reignited, but still a new love story.
It was unrequited love, turned into epic love. It was years of wanting and wishing, turned into reality and passion and made into something brand new.
I loved getting to know these characters. Their heart, their passion, their past. The struggles they went through, how they rose above the ashes to build something they wanted. These characters have depth and multi layers. I loved seeing all the layers peeled back one by one as their story unfolded. The heartache they endured, the trials they had to overcome, but it made them strong and made them persevere and shape into the people they became.
And what’s better? Lulu is a Chocolatier! What’s goes best with romance?? Chocolate!! Some of her concoctions sounds super delicious, makes me wish I could reach into my kindle and grab some! Lol.
Want a taste? Dive in, you won’t regret it. I’m sure you’ll fall in love with Leo and Lulu just as much as I did!
