The Engagement Gift by Lauren Blakely Review


* * * * * * * * * *


Some fantasies are better left unsaid.

Besides, I don’t need to act on my dirty dreams, not when my fiancé and I have the kind of after dark adventures others dream of — wild, daring and oh so frequent.

I can’t risk losing him by voicing my deepest, dirtiest desire. But the hotter our role playing gets, the closer I come to telling him what I want most — him and his best friend at the same time.

Until the night I do…

The Engagement Gift is a standalone 20,000 word MFM novella with an HEA and NO cheating! Be prepared for a red-hot story that’ll make you toss off your panties!

As someone who has read the overwhelming majority of Lauren Blakely’s contemporaries and romantic comedies, I can say without hesitation that The Engagement Gift is the sexiest, steamiest, most erotic story she’s ever written. Blakely’s romances are always sexy, she never shies away from the heat in her stories. But The Engagement Gift is different than what her readers have seen from her previously. The tag line for this story captures it perfectly, because unequivocally this is Lauren Blakely: After Dark.

Completely in sync in every single way, Lily and Finn are *that* couple, and I loved them right off the bat. They’re hot, they’re hot for each other and the uninhibited passion between them made my heart race. They had an active, adventurous sex life, they were open about their wants and desires, but Lily was holding something back. Being the observant fiancé that Finn was, he wanted to give his future wife her every heart’s desire.

The Engagement Gift was teeming with so much heat that if there had been any more, I’m certain my Kindle would have self-combusted—I know that I sure would have. But this is no smutty little novella, there is a story here that was rooted in love, trust and faith and that’s what really grabbed my attention. Deliciously daring, wildly wanton and palpably passionate, The Engagement Gift was a fiery and romantic love story that made my heart race and my cheeks heat as I devoured it. The author hints at more stories to come from Lily and Finn’s friends, and I’m so excited, I’m practically panting for them. Five smooches from me!
