About this ebook

A red-hot forbidden romance! Indulge in this ultra sexy best friend's brother delight!
Some women are just forbidden.
Like—off the top of my head—MY SISTER’S LIFE-LONG BEST FRIEND.
Sis has made it patently clear that Vanessa is hands-off, as in keep my ladies’ man paws far away from her clever, go-getter best friend who’s ready for the real deal. That should be an easy guideline to follow, except Vanessa is deliciously flirty, easy to talk to, and laughs at my jokes. Translation – my libido has been craving her many, many years. So many that we might have stolen a kiss or two.
Can you say pent-up, crazy, raw desire?
That’s exactly what we’re both feeling when the storm of the century hits and it’s 10 inches of snow with Vanessa and me trapped in a cabin all night long…
The trouble is—Vanessa isn’t interested in my playboy ways, and I have one night to convince her that I’m the real deal.
Nobody Does It Better is a standalone novella about Shaw & Vanessa in the Lucky in Love series of standalones! The books in this three-book series can be read in any order!! The other titles include Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor!

3.75 stars--NOBODY DOES IT BETTER is the third instalment in Lauren Blakely’s contemporary, adult LUCKY IN LOVE erotic, romance series. This is firefighter Shaw Keating, and bowling centre operator Vanessa Marquez’s story line. NOBODY DOES IT BETTER can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalments is revealed where necessary. Told from three first person points of view (Vanessa, Shaw and Derek) NOBODY DOES IT BETTER follows the friends to lovers relationship between firefighter Shaw Keating, and bowling centre operator Vanessa Marquez. Shaw Keating has been in love with his sister’s best friend for most of his life. Shaw’s sister Perri has warned our hero away from Vanessa on more than one occasion but Shaw is determined to make Vanessa his own. A winter snow storm finds our couple alone in the cabin, a cabin they had been preparing for Perri and Derek’s honeymoon. What ensues is the friendship to lovers night of romance between Shaw and Vanessa, and the potential fall-out when their would-be rescuers include Shaw’s sister Perri who is determined to keep them apart. NOBODY DOES IT BETTER is a novella length, fast paced story of friendship, family, romance and love; of hidden feelings, and a secret set-up where the Book Club Ladies consider themselves cupid and matchmakers for the young and young at heart. The premise is entertaining; the romance is sexy and sassy; the characters are colorful, energetic and fun.

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Nobody Does It Better is set in the same world as two of Blakely's previous releases, Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor. This is the story of Shaw and Vanessa and I was so excited to dive into this one! Shaw, a firefighter who oozes charm and sexiness, and Vanessa, a bowling alley owner with a retro style, have had feelings for one another since high school, but they've done a fairly good job of hiding that. Shaw is Vanessa's best friend Perri's brother and Perri has made it crystal clear to both of them that she doesn't want them dating. She feels that Shaw isn't good enough for her friend based on the fact that he enjoys women and he's never shown signs of wanting to settle down. But is the solution to that actually finding the right woman to settle down with? When Vanessa finds herself in a jam at the cabin she's preparing for Perri and Derek's honeymoon, she calls on Shaw to help her out. While they are working away at the cabin, mother nature decides to throw them a curve and dumps an enormous amount of snow on them, stranding them together. Will years of pent of feelings finally overflow or will these two continue to circle one another? With a great supporting cast that we've gotten to know in the other two books, you have the recipe for a great book. The matchmakers in town are in full force and as always when you pick up a Blakely book, it is full of entertainment and humor. I highly recommend picking this one up!

Nobody Does It Better is more novella in length compared to its two predecessors, Best Laid Plans and The Feel Good Factor, but it's got every bit of that rom-com goodness that the full-length novels had. I liked that hint of a twist with the falling-for-my-sibling's-best-friend--which could also be falling-for-my-best-friend's-sibling--what with Perri, Shaw's sister, being the one to make it clear that Shaw was to stay away from Vanessa. It had nothing to do with Shaw being a bad guy but more to do with what many saw as his reputation as a guy who got around...A LOT. But you see, he's had a thing for one girl and one girl only ever since they were in high school and that's none other than Vanessa. And hey, it's a very mutual thing going on, and all it takes is a snowstorm to give them a push. Lauren Blakely never fails to create main characters that make it impossible for me to not like them at the very least. I've liked Shaw and Vanessa from the moment they were first introduced, but reading their story made me fall in love with them. These two had chemistry, but they were also saddled with a whole lot of guilt since they had feelings for each other but then the Perri factor was constantly stalling any progress they'd make. Sure, I've read other books before that have had used the same trope and I've come across stories that have had the main characters trapped somewhere due to some force of nature, but there's something about Blakely's writing that makes everything all the more charming and endearing. I adored the romance and the passion as well as the friendship Shaw and Vanessa shared, making for a fun quickie of a read. I'm giving Nobody Does It Better five stars. ♥
