Publisher's Summary

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 in dark corners.

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.

We make arrangements for another secret rendezvous before I rush out of the ball.

But fate has other plans, since I see my most wicked man the next morning. Because that man is the billionaire owner of the hotel across the Strip from mine.

My rival. My enemy.

We vie for business every second of every day, so the last thing I can do is let him in my bed at night.

I give in one final time, in a daring, risqué game of chance, and then I vow to resist.

And that's what I do every time I see him, every time I get to know the brilliant, mercurial man who wants a piece of my business.

Until the night he ups the stakes.

And I have no choice but to see his bet and raise it.

Performed by Joe Arden, Emma Wilder, and Shane East, One Exquisite Touch is a sexy rivals-to-lovers stand-alone, rich with masquerades, billionaires, and forbidden trysts!

Wow, wow and more wow!!!!!

OMG! This book was the perfect. Lauren Blakely has out done herself with this book. It's forbidden, a little or a lot filthy, sweet, loving, accepting and scorching hot. The narration was out of this world good. Emma, Joe and Shane literally made me feel included in the story, bringing it to life in the best way. By far one of my best reads of 2020 so far.

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫ HOT HOT HOT

WOW this takes me back the to dirtier days of Lauren Blakely books and takes the award for hottest book yet!! I loved how open and unashamed these characters are about their kinks. Sage & Cole are competition at work but the chemistry between them is everything. I really enjoyed the work banter and I loved all the dirty talk and seriously sexy scenes. This book has a perfect balance of story and sex in my opinion. I'm a sucker for Manège so I knew this book would be for me. I also enjoyed the build up and sneak peeks into the next books in the After Dark line of books.. I love a great Rom-Com but I need a little dark and dirty sometimes too and Lauren Blakely is giving me some of everything I need this year. Keep them coming!!!! The narration was fun, Emma Wilder, Joe Arden, Shane East & Wesleigh Siobhan all did a good job.

ANOTHER PREDICTABLY AWESOME LISTEN

Lauren’s books are always predictably brilliant, they always have predictably delicious storylines with predictably charming, sweet sassy heroines and sexy alpha heroes and the chemistry between them is always predictably thrilling, highly charged and banter-fuelled. BUT THIS AUDIOBOOK.. wow, this sexy, hot, steamy ménage between rival hotel owners Sage and best friends Cole and Daniel, well, it takes sizzling chemistry to a whole new level of melt-your-pants off moments. Sage wasn’t prepared for the force that was Cole and Daniel together, with their dirty mouths, wicked suggestions and skilled practiced moves.. and phewee neither was I!! However, it was Cole’s swoon-worthy charm, drool-worthy charisma and sexy character that broadened the lucky lady’s vanilla sexual appetite and stole her heart.

WORTH A CREDIT? Yes it’s a smouldering sexy well-paced listen and the triple POV hot storyline was deliciously brought to life by the very talented Emma, Joe and Shane.

Lauren Blakely has a wonderful mind!!!

This story is excellent!!! I know... I know... I say that a lot about Lauren Blakely’s books, but damn if it isn’t true!!! She has a way of weaving tales that make you want to experience everything the characters experience with them!!

Cole has a new hotel in Vegas. It’s right across the street from the hotel that Sage owns with her sister. They don’t know each other at the beginning of the book. They meet at a charity masquerade ball... and the tow of them along with Coles best friend, Daniel have an encounter that leaves them wanting more!

Daniel is a matchmaker... and Cole and Sage are his targets!! He doesn’t mind being included, but he knows that Sage is what Cole needs....

This is a great story! I loved reading it and wanted much, much more!!

These narrators.... Emma Wilder, Joe Arden, Shane East, and Wesleigh Siobhan... are fantastic! Joe Arden is one of my favorites anyway... I love his voice... and the teaser for the book he wrote with Lauren Blakely is too cute for words!!!

Wow!!!

Lauren Blakely amazes me with One Exquisite Touch! This is the hottest book by her that I've listened to. Sage & Cole are full of kinks and competition and chemistry. The banter was so much fun. Emma Wilder, Joe Arden, Shane East and Wesleigh Siobhan all brought the characters to life. I fully enjoyed this listen and am looking forward to more in this line.

I couldn't finish

Let me start by saying I am a huge LB fan. Her books are an auto-download for me and this one was no different. However, it may be the only one that I haven't been able to finish. I'm obviously alone in my feelings based on other reviews but I just couldn't get on board with the story line in this one. Yes, there were some noteworthy steamy parts, but outside of that, just not much substance. I wasn't emotionally drawn to the characters, in fact, Sage wasn't very likeable to me at all and Cole was just arrogant. Daniel's role seemed very forced and sort-of out of place. Sage and Cole both had such emotional baggage and history, yet they never really dove into that (either by themselves or with each other) and had the opportunity to grow, yet they fall in love in a week or two? The other major bummer is that it was just slow moving for me. The whole thing took place over a handful of weeks yet felt like months. I kept trying but ultimately I had to stop.

Don't get me completely wrong, the narration is amazing but even that, by 3/4 of the way through, wasn't enough to save it.

5 Stars for One Exquisite Touch!

Sage is a strong businesswoman running her hotel with her sister Ivy. Cole and Daniel are the new guys in town running a rival hotel. After a chance meeting Sage, Cole and even Daniel open their eyes to new possibilities and feelings. It's so much more than just an amazingly sexy story. It shows strong characters dealing with their own emotional issues and hang ups as well as being able to let their hair down and become someone else for a while.
The narration really amped up the absolute hotness of this book. Emma is the standout with her performance as Sage. Truly outstanding. She is so good at playing these strong and confident types of women, plus her male voices are just as hot as the guys themselves.
Joe and Shane were perfectly cast as Cole and Daniel. Who else can make whispering as sexy as these two can? Between the guys and Emma, I have no idea how I survived this book. It's easily one of the hottest books I've listened to in a while.

I really enjoyed the epilogues. Eliza's made me cry it was so perfect. Daniel's made me want more Daniel.

The sneak peak for How to Get Lucky was awesome! I don't think Joe could be any more excited about his and Lauren's upcoming book! I am as excited as Joe is!

Hot, hotter, Joe/Emma/Shane

Whew Lauren, you knocked it out if the park with that one 👏🏼

It so was meant to be narrated by Emma, Joe and Shane. I still feel like it's a hot, humid summer day after listening to this. But Joe was just something else. That deep, raspy whispers still have me tingling!

And that last bit ➡️ #HTGL - was EVERYTHING.

This book was definitely Exquisite

What a wonderfully delicious treat. As always Lauren Blakely brings the heat. This was a really good Story about a couple who are attracted to one another before they know each other‘s identity. However once they do realize that they are rivals in business story becomes more about learning about yourself in about what you deserve in life. The narration was excellent as always. However did am not sure who the last female narrator was but she wasn’t my favorite. However I would recommend anyone to go by the book. Now!!

More Erotica than Romance

This book had such high ratings and raving reviews that I couldn’t wait to listen...I also have read most of Lauren Blakely’s books and enjoyed every single one of them. Not so much the case here. I wish I would have taken the time to read the 2 and 3 star reviews as they are pretty on point with my general thoughts and reactions at the end of the story. Weak plot, insta-love, more erotica than romance, abrupt ending. Cole’s epilogue helped slightly but not enough to save it. The whole story was basically the build up and then the act of having sex....with multiple sex scenes including ménage. I’m a fan of ménage but I’d rather there be some deeper meaning involved in the relationship. My final straw was when Sage confessed her love for Cole within seconds of another man slipping his d*** out of her a$$. I mean, seriously?!! 5 star narration. 2 star story. Do not recommend.

I am woman, hear me roar

Just so you know, when the synopsis says, a sexy rivals to lovers standalone, they are understating the word sexy,p. The story is sex personified. Hot, hot, hot! Scorching. Sizzling. Burning. Even now, having finished the book, I could combust just thinking about it. Rival Vegas casino/hotel owners Cole Donavon and Sage Carmichael meet during a masquerade ball and share a sexy tryst with Cole’s best friend and business associate sexy Englishman Daniel Stewart. Both Sage and Cole have been hurt before, yet when they come together the past is forgotten. No mind games (there are plenty of bedroom games), a lot of kink, but just bear in mind the advice given to Sage from her best friend. There is no shame in sex unless you bring it there. No shame in desire or wanting, as long as it’s all consensual, and just so you know Sage had all the power, all the time. I loved her. Let me also add that Cole is one hell of a dirty talker, something that lends itself extremely well to audio and Joe Arden’s sexy as sin voice. Add in Emma Wilder and Shane East and I was in audiobook heaven. Emma Wilder narrates Cole and Daniel’s comments in Sage’s POV perfectly, I love her male drawl, it is soooo good. A super sexy, fun read.
