When a scorching one-night stand between best friends absolutely, definitely shouldn’t happen again…

How to resist sleeping with your best friend when you’re stuck in a hotel room in Vegas with the charming, glasses-wearing hottie.

1. Slather your face in a grapefruit mask
2. Wear a big, fluffy robe
3. Make him do the same.


Didn’t work. Turns out our libidos had other plans.

But, no biggie. After epic, soul-shattering banging, I’ll just put the genie back in the bottle the next morning. Only, that’s easier said than done. After years of scraping by, Nolan and I just landed the big break of a lifetime for our scrappy online restaurant review show. We’re going to New York for a month.

Just the two of us. TOGETHER ALL THE TIME.

But I’ve already lost my best friend once, so I’ll do whatever it takes to resist thoroughly delicious Nolan again.

Until I learn whatever it takes might cost me everything.

Shut Up and Kiss Me is the second book in the Happy Endings series by one of my favorite authors ever, Lauren Blakely. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend reading A Wild Card Kiss since it’s fan-f*@king-tastic! The wait is over, people! This is Nolan and Emerson’s story…
Emerson and Nolan are best friends. They met in college twelve years ago and for the last year and a handful of months they have been working together co-hosting a food show on YouTube. They have toed the line over the years but never fully crossed it and with the show picking up speed they need to keep it that way. So, it should be easy to spend a weekend in Las Vegas in a suite, right?
Totally! Not like they haven’t been there before or shared a room over the last twelve years. This trip is all business. That is until the banging begins. One night. That is all it could be. They have to go back to the other side of the line. Back to best friends and co-hosts. They both need to bring their channel to the top. But can they go back to the way they were before Vegas? I mean it’s not like Nolan is a glasses-wearing hottie who makes her laugh or a man who melts her panties with just a smirk. Or even makes her blush and think naughty thoughts with his flirty innuendos. And Emerson isn’t beautiful in every way even if she thinks she can be an jerk or makes him hard with just one look. Or makes him laugh with her to-do lists. Nope, definitely none of those things.
I absolutely adored this story! It’s so much fun, sizzling, and emotional. The perfect combo! They made me laugh so hard I snorted. Their connection is beautiful and full of heart, want, and devotion. It was also fun to catch up with both the San Francisco  and New York friends. I can’t wait for more of their stories. ♥️♥️
Wait a sexy seconds “No off told me there would be snacks,” I say to Nolan, latching onto this new intel.
“I didn’t know they were offering your favorite meal of the day,” he says.
(HAHA. I had to add this one since I am know for my snacks.)
“I’ll sleep on the couch,” I blurt.
Or maybe I croak it. I’m a frog. A horny toad.
It’s insane and wild and intimate, beautiful in its own dirty way.

Shut Up and Kiss Me is the second book in the Happy Endings series by Lauren Blakely. This is a fun, sexy, best friends to lovers story that had me laughing out loud, swooning and made me hungry. Nolan and Emerson are best friends who do a YouTube show together, How to Eat a Banana. It’s a food show full of innuendo and fun and they both love what they do and have fun doing it. They get an opportunity to take the show to New York and that means a lot of togetherness. All of a sudden the sexual tension is off the charts. But getting their show to the next level is more important than taking their friendship to the lover zone. But it’s hard to resist the person who makes you laugh. Who looks at you like you’re their next meal. The attraction is just too much to ignore and they give in to it. But was it just one night or can they make it work? Is there too much on the line to get involved with your co-worker? I love this couple! Nolan is just so swoony with his glasses and his sense of humor. Emerson is fun, smart and sexy. I’m really enjoying this series and all it’s characters. I can’t wait for them all to get books!

Audio: Jason and Julia were so fantastic! I love them together and thought they were the perfect Nolan and Emerson!
