“The Sexy One” was Ms. Blakely’s attempt to do a more romantic book instead of her usual, uproarious, slightly dirty stories told from the guy’s POV. The whole “I can’t date the nanny” conflict could have been resolved with an honest conversation: “I like you, you like me. What should we do about it?” Instead, these two hem and haw throughout most of the book: “dating the nanny is a cliche!” (who cares), “it’s a forbidden relationship!” (it isn’t – they are both adults), “my life is too complicated!” (it really isn’t).
“Well Hung” is without a doubt, Lauren Blakely’s best book to date. It was sexy, it was funny, it was romantic and finally, finally! There was a conflict. It wasn’t anything angsty – Ms. Blakely doesn’t write angst – or silly, or earth-shattering, but it MADE SENSE FOR THE CHARACTER.
