I’ll say this about Christian — he made one hell of a first impression.
When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I’d seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do — I took his photo. I might have looked at the shot a few dozen times. Little did I know I’d meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I’d learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating.
But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal — No strings. No expectations.
Our arrangement worked well enough until the day I needed a lot more from him…
Let me just say, this whole part-time lover thing was her idea. I’d have gone all-in from the start, but hey, when a gorgeous, brilliant woman invites you into her bed, and only her bed…well, I said yes.
But then, one hysterical phone call from my brother later, begging me to find myself a wife so grandfather’s business stays in the family, and I need a promotion with Elise. Turns out a full-time husband suits her needs too, and a temporary marriage of convenience ought to do the trick, until we can simply untie the knot…
As long as no one finds out…
As long as no one gets hurt…
As long as no one falls in love…
But our ending was one I never saw coming.

By now you guys know I love love love audiobooks, and I’m always excited to listen to one of Lauren Blakely’s books. Not only because she’s the author who made me love audiobooks, but because I usually love ALL of her books. This one was no exception.
I’m really happy to see more of Christian and Elise, who are first introduced in Wanderlust, and to finally know the story behind both characters. And like the previous book, this one draws you in with the descriptions of the stores, the streets, and the smells, of Paris, Copenaghen and New York. I really like this, and it works even better in audio form.
I adored both main characters, especially Christian… I liked that he understood his feelings and pursued what he wanted. Elise was a perfect counterpart for Christian, she had such hard limits and high walls, but she wanted to be open and herself, but just too scared to be able to do it. They support each other, and they both grow up a lot, mainly Elise.
Fake relationships turned real is one troupe I like, and it was super well done here. The whole plot was very entertaining and enjoyable. I was only expecting a bit more from the whole thing with Erik’s wife… and I’m wondering if that was the last we’ll see of him?!
So, guys, get on board with this one. Another fantastic read from Lauren Blakely.
“From the beautiful backdrop to the witty dialogue and the heartwarming romance, Part-time Lover is a keeper.”
