Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Instant Gratification is the second book in the Always Satisfied series by the fabulous and talented Lauren Blakely. Queen LB strikes again with her wit, sexiness, humor and memorable characters. This friends to lovers romance is sweet, sexy, funny and steamy! It can be read as a standalone, but I don’t know why you would want to do that. Go and read/listen to Satisfaction Guaranteed.



If you already did then you remember Jason, Malone’s best friend. The sexy Englishman who’s a best-man-for-hire and a savvy business man helping men one podcast at a time. He’s also friends with Truly, Malone’s sister, and therein lies the trouble. They are just friends except that one night they shared months ago. The night he can’t stop thinking about and never lets an opportunity to remind her go by. So, they hang out, flirt, pass innuendos but stay in the friend zone. Until they need each other’s help. He needs a plus one to a few weddings and she needs help with a new bar concept. The sexiness and chemistry gets the best of them and they can’t keep their hands off each other. But Truly is his best friend’s sister. They can’t be more than friends. Right? Oh so wrong! But they put up a good fight. Their need is just stronger than their will to fight it. They are hot, sexy, fun and flirty. But one of my favorite things about this couple is the are in the Bacon Haters Club! I thought I was there all by myself! Ok, seriously. Jason with his sexy accent and intelligence is swoonworthy. Truly with her beauty and smarts is the total package. I’m looking forward to more in the series and I loved seeing Charlotte, Nick, Ryder, Sloane, Malone and the whole gang!



Once again, Queen LB has delighted us with this all star cast with Shane East and Andi Arndt leading some of my favorite narrators and a few who are new to me. Shane and Andi really became Jason and Truly. Shane’s sexy accent is so delicious and he is a master at using just the right tone and inclination in his voice to portray his emotions. Andi, as always, is just fantastic. She and Lauren and are match made in heaven. And when you add in the rest of the cast, I was smiling, laughing out loud and my ears were so happy! (Joe and Zachary had me laughing out loud, Jason Clarke’s sexy British accent had me fanning myself, and Lili Valente’s sultry voice was perfection.


“What’s wrong with the two of you? You look like someone told you that you have to eat bacon for the rest of your lives.”

Truly gives a forced laugh. “That does seem like quite a jail sentence.”

He smiles and studies us curiously. “I feel like I should order bacon just to drive you crazy.”

“I’m not ready for that kind of punishment,” I quip,


He’s too charming, too amusing, too easy to be with. He’s like a bag of popcorn. Have you ever tried to eat just one handful of popcorn?

Charlotte: Anyway, just keep on this falling-out-of-bed path and you’ll be fine. As long as you don’t slip onto his dick again, you can totally be friends forever!

Truly: Thanks for the tip. I’ll try to avoid falling onto his cock.

Charlotte: Well, you do have a history of accidentally landing on it.

Truly: Purposefully. It was a purposeful landing.

Charlotte: Own it.


I need a fake date. She needs my late-night expertise. Now, if we can just keep our hands off each other…

As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of “I dos,” I turn to my gorgeous, clever, witty best friend’s sister. She’s my good friend, too, and I lust after her completely. I mean, I TRUST her completely.

After all, just look how she’s kept her lips sealed about the hot, multi-O night we spent together. Yes, just look at those sexy lips.

In any case, we only fell off the wagon once, and it was months ago. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo.

Or can we?

INSTANT GRATIFICATION is a sexy, standalone romantic comedy!

Re: Confessions of a Bad Girl

I am the worst twin sister in the world.
The absolute worst.
How could I do this?

And by this, I mean engage in earth-shattering, toe-curling, bend-me-over-the-bed-and-take-me-hard sex with my brother’s best friend. By the way, did I mention the sex was incredible?

Oh, wait. I did.

But I’m not surprised, because I’ve always liked his company. He’s funny and clever, and he has this irreverent side that’s fascinating and wildly entertaining.

But we were only supposed to go snowboarding.


It all seemed innocuous, right? A day on the slopes in January.

At the end of the final run, the sun had already set, and we headed into the ski lodge and made plans to meet for dinner.

I didn’t even drink at dinner. Neither did he. We just talked the whole time, and there was candlelight. Stupid candlelight. And he was flirting, and he always flirts, but this time . . . this time we weren’t in New York. We were far enough away I could forget everything that went wrong years ago.
