One Exquisite Touch is book one in The Extravagant series by the incredibly talented Lauren Blakely. This series is starting off with a bang. It’s hot, sexy, a little sweet, emotional and did I say sexy? Sage is looking for something extra. More. She’s not even sure what she wants until she meets him at a masquerade ball. The sexy masked stranger makes her body hum and her heart race. She wants to see him again and hold him to his promises, but she doesn’t expect him to walk into her office a few days later. She’s shocked that her new competition is the man who played her body. Cole Donovan. Owner of the new hotel on the Strip. Her rival. This can’t he happening. How is she supposed to stop wanting him? She wants more. She needs more. Is it possible to fulfill your fantasies with your rival? Cole would recognize his stranger anywhere but he can’t believe his luck when she turns out to be Sage Carmichael. A woman who he’ll be fighting to win business in Vegas. He won’t be deterred that easily thought. Rival or not, Sage is everything he’s ever wanted in a woman and he’s not going to be able to stay away from her. Oh my Lord! Cole is so off the charts sexy with his dark eyes, commanding presence, love of books and thoughtful ways. He’s smart, handsome, caring and hot. Sage is beautiful, smart, dedicated and has been waiting for a man like Cole. Together they are on fire! In the bedroom and in business, they are the perfect match. I’m loving all the secondary characters and can’t wait for their stories!

Audio: Not only is the book Lauren’s sexiest yet, these narrators blew my mind with the hotness! Emma sounds the best I’ve ever heard and she takes Lauren’s sexy words and gives them life with her confidence and sexiness. Joe and Shane are off the charts sexy as always, but they stepped it up for this one. If that’s even possible!

Wesleigh is a new to me narrator and I enjoyed her voice.

5 out of 5 stars

One Exquisite Touch is the first novel in the The Extravagant series by Lauren Blakely. There is a prequel, One Night Only and I HIGHLY recommend reading it since it’s not only hot AF but it’s the beginning of desires being filled in the city of sin. You will also meet characters for future naughty nights.

Sage Carmichael is powerful, beautiful, and discovering herself. Her desires. Her wants. Her needs. She was a woman who wore slacks and a blouse with a French twist to meetings, dinners, and in the office. At night, she was a woman who liked to dress up, in costumes, in works of art, in secret. She was the co-CEO of the most beautiful hotel on the Strip, she ran board meetings, and was a pillar in the community. She was also a woman who wanted to be adorned, cherished, and filthy. What she didn’t know was two men were about to come into her life and give her everything she didn’t know she craved…

Holy f*cking hotness!!! They might have been rivals in business but they were fire in the bedroom. Seriously, so fucking hot. Cole and Daniel are like fire and ice and it made Sage flame up. Every touch. Every lick. Every smack. It was both swoon worthy and dirty. Not only were they dirty-talkers but they definitely knew how to back it up. Every. Single. Time. But, this story isn’t just about sex. It’s about exploring your desires and yourself in the process. It’s about trust, love, competition, and discovery. I loved every moment of this book.

Overall…it’s a book full of seduction, desire, love, and discovery. I was seriously hot and bothered throughout the whole thing. Through their words and touch. It was beautiful, sweet, swoony, and it also made me laugh. I am in love with all these characters and I can’t wait for the rest of the series.


One makes me swoon; the other makes me burn.

His wicked words send tingles through me, around me, wrapping me up in them like someone has sprinkled me with erotic pixie dust, and it’s not fair, it’s not fair, it’s not fair.

Her whole body is an erogenous zone if you play her right. Hit the right notes. I can. Daniel can. We can.




A sexy enemies-to-lovers standalone, rich with masquerades, billionaires and forbidden trysts!

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.

But as the clock ticks to midnight, he finds me, whisks me away to a secret alcove, and delivers all that dirty bliss and then some, leaving me craving more. We make arrangements for another secret rendezvous.

Only fate has other plans, since I run into him the next morning. Turns out the stranger at the ball is the billionaire owner of the hotel across the Strip from mine.

My rival. My enemy.

The last thing I’ll do is let the brilliant, mercurial man who wants a piece of my business into my bed again.

But when he throws down a daring, risqué bet. I have to decide if I want to raise the stakes.

Or walk away…

ONE EXQUISITE TOUCH is a wickedly racy, high-stakes love story between a man and a woman. It also features several sexy MFM love scenes.


One Exquisite Touch is a standalone in The Extravagant series. Other standalones include One Night Only, and One Alluring Chance. The book One Time Only is a standalone MM spinoff in The Extravagant world.



Check out the excerpt below and get a taste of this deliciously sexy novel now!


Standing in front of the glass window overlooking the casino is a stunning woman in a red dress with a zipper all the way down the back.

I want to unzip it with my teeth.

Her blonde hair is twisted neat and tight in a clip. Those silky strands remind me of my stranger. That clip, too, reminds me of the one she left behind that night. The barrette I picked up when she scurried away. The barrette I plan to give her next weekend at the party.

But right now, I’m not thinking of my stranger, because I’m too busy admiring the view in front of me.

That body. That ass. Those legs.

She stands at the window, hands on the sill, gazing at her empire below.

She looks powerful, and power looks so damn good on a woman, especially when a powerful woman gets on her knees at your command.

I’d like to put her on her knees.

5 out of 5 stars

The hookup is a short story that was featured in the BookWorm Box last year. This is my first time reading it and holy hotness, Batman! I can’t really say much since it is a short story and don’t want to spoil it. I can say it’s one scandalous hookup between a lawyer and a sailor at The Hookup bar. One that was needed. A celebration and a way to feel good.


Lips that plump and full made for long lingering kisses, vulgar words, and carnal activities.

Easton’s allure, his intoxicating scent, all the emotion…just everything seemed to reach a deeper part of Grant, and he was greedy for more.

“I really like that crass mouth of yours.”

5 out of 5 stars

The Hookup is a short story by Kindle Alexander. A quick tryst between a hot lawyer and a sexy sailor left me fulfilled and satisfied. It was a fast read but it was full of sexiness, emotion and humor!


Goodreads – “The Hookup is a very quick novella that was steamy and so hot that you will be in danger of being burnt”
SiKReviews – “A sweet book about a couple who spice up their marriage in a unique way”
Goodreads – “Kindle Alexander never lets you down when reading about the men in their stories.” 






Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindl
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.
