REVIEW ➼ One Night Stand-In by Lauren Blakely


Lucas Xavier is the last person I want to spend 24 hours with, let alone two minutes. Exes are exes for a reason. In his case, for a million reasons. Because he’s not only an ex-lover, he’s also an ex-friend. We didn’t just break up – we combusted in a spectacular bonfire of barbs and doors slammed.

Nothing will change that. Not his clever wit, not his ridiculous good looks, not his unfair levels of charm. And definitely not a wild dash through the city that takes us on an accidental scavenger hunt through our past, where we stop for a tango lesson, pancakes and a visit with some llamas.

And certainly not time together to make amends and say we’re sorry.

But, let’s say that was enough…it’s not like you can fall in love in 24 hours.

Because men who read are hella hot. Because a sexy man is a sexy man, but a sexy man who reads? That’s like a unicorn.


I love Lauren Blakely’s books, but One Night Stand-In is hands down one of the best books I’ve read from her recently. I loved the lightness, the characters, the banter and the overall story.

Lola and Lucas were friends in college, on the verge of starting something more, when a giant misunderstanding happened and forever changed their relationship….for 10 years. Unfortunately for them, their younger siblings are dating and in love and need their help. Can 24 hours change everything?

Lola and Lucas have so much chemistry and I was living for it. They started off their journey as enemies with some hilarious banter, then moved to friends with hilarious banter, and finally they realized they were each other’s missing pieces.

I LOVED the scavenger hunt idea, so much. It was so much fun and lead to so many hilarious moments between them. They were able to learn so much more about their siblings, but also about themselves and their relationship.

One Night Stand-In is a MUST READ for anyone looking for a light hearted laugh out loud rom com.
