REVIEW: The Extravagant Collection by Lauren Blakely



* * * * * * * * * *


A collection of the three best-selling high-stakes stand-alones in the Extravagant series!

One Night Only

On the outside, I look innocent—blonde hair, bright smile, buttoned-up blouse.

But inside, I’m black lace and dirty dreams. And for the last year, I’ve been fighting my desires for the one man who’s totally off-limits—my bodyguard.

One Exquisite Touch

When the invitation arrived, it detailed the rules of the masquerade—no names, no identities.

I set one more—find a most wicked man for one night, the kind who’ll bring me deliciously naughty pleasure.

Turns out, he’s my rival, and he wants my business. And me.

My One Week Husband

He’s my business partner, my good friend, and the man I’ve craved for years.

But I’ve resisted the sexy Brit. Then an opportunity comes along for us to snag the business deal of a lifetime.

The catch? We need to pretend we’re married to pull off this high-stakes deal.

A bold and adventurous story, One Night Only is primed with passion and promises. Blakely fulfills fantasies within the pages of this novella, I positively devoured this addictive love story. Five smooches from me for One Night Only by Lauren Blakely!


Blakely takes it to new heights of adventurism in One Exquisite Touch, an unputdownable story of the unabashed pursuit pleasure with the sweet surprise of discovering love in the process. This is Blakely’s boldest, most daring and thrilling romance to date, and I positively inhaled it in a single sitting. This author’s work always impresses me, but when she stretches her wings and takes a chance with more risqué material, she delivers something truly special and memorable, and I am a grateful reader for her brave storytelling. Five smooches from me for One Exquisite Touch by Lauren Blakely!


Drawn in from the start, Daniel and Scarlett’s attraction captured my attention, but it was the blending of their personal back stories and their joint present story that held me raptly engrossed. This story was as much about the healing of past heartaches as it was about the promise of new love. At times raw and emotional, Lauren managed to tell this heartbreaking yet hopeful and passionate love story without relying on an angst-filled or drama heavy tale. My One Week Husband was  such a lushly told love story, and I just couldn’t put it down. A new favorite of mine from Blakely and a top favorite for the year! Five smooches from me for My One Week Husband by Lauren Blakely!

The Extravagant Collection is a fantastic compilation of some of Lauren Blakely’s steamiest, most seductive stories. Fiery and full of fantasies, all three of these romances are heart-racing, heat-filled, humorous and emotionally heady love stories. A must-have collection of some of my 5 SMOOCHES favorites from Lauren Blakely!
