There is no rule in the Man Code as unbreakable as this: no matter how beautiful, smart, clever, and witty she is, do not—under any circumstances—fall in love with your best friend’s woman.
Yeah. So there’s that. Look, it’s not like I didn’t know I screwed up by falling for her.
Also, for the record, unrequited love sucks big time.
And, I might have cut myself some slack by now, given everything that went down in the last few years, but Lulu just walked back into my life in a big way.
There are three things I've never been able to resist—my friends, my family, and chocolate.
Leo Hennessy? He was nowhere on that list. He's been a true friend—a friend who walked through hell and back with me.
Now, I'm stepping into my new future. I didn't expect it to include a riddle-filled, race-against-the-clock scavenger hunt across New York City.
Suddenly, I'm looking at this man with new eyes...
But my life spun out because of a man once before, and I can’t risk my fresh start, no matter what the temptation. And Leo is most definitely a temptation of the sexiest, sweetest, and most dangerous variety.
More irresistibly delicious than chocolate...
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 :)
Birthday Suit is His Best Look
I didn’t know how to feel when I started reading this book. As the underlying alcoholism is felt throughout, I’m glad it wasn’t the main concern for Leo and Lulu anymore. That they were able to not let the effects of it run their lives and they found each other again. I don’t know how Lauren Blakely does it, but keep it up girl! You have nothing but gold in your words!!😘
I love this birthday suit!
I love her rom-coms; I laughed out loud almost immediately! Leo & Lulu are a second chance romance but not quite, with a little friends-to-lovers thrown in. In college, he fell in love with her while she was falling in love with his best friend, but she never knew that part. They were always just friends. That’s in the past when they meet again at the beginning of the book, & we do find out why the best friend is not in the picture now which is a more serious subject matter. I love that Leo & Lulu were a slow burn; they got to know who each other are now, not who they were in the past. But when they do get together it is fireworks! Leo is smart, funny and swoony. Lulu is smart, funny & unique. I loved both these characters & was rooting for their happy ending. When they did get that happy ending, I smiled & teared up! If you love a quick, fun, swoony, angst-free read like I do, then read this book!
