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 :)
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!
