Stone is a rockstar and Jackson is his bodyguard. Both of them have been attracted to each other for a while but not voicing it or giving into it for different reasons, mainly Jackson being Stone's bodyguard. Until one night when it all blows up and they give in for one time only.
Ok so I was enjoying this book, for the most part it felt fast paced enough and I was smiling, at the ways Stone and Jackson went and back and forth with one another. I liked seeing glimpses of different relationships and dynamics.
But then it just got so repetitive holy hell. Lauren Blakely does steam well, that's obviously her thing, Jackson and Stone were fire together. I wouldn't label this book erotica but damn, it just got tiresome with all the sex scenes plus Blakely writes looong sex scenes at that too. I just wanted more of the characters and truly seeing the relationship develop. We get small glimpses of that but not enough in my opinion due to the repetition. Other little things that annoyed me was in one scene they are about to have sex and this is well into their thing they have going on and "bro" was said. That annoyed me so much lol. Another occasion, well into their thing they have a "what's your type" kinda conversation and there was the whole "I don't like feminine guys" I truly didn't see the point of it, other than to make a point on the author's behalf. Plus this is the author's second MM book and she's definitely written a certain type, and seems it's gonna continue I just hope the above isn't a theme that carries throughout her books with the whole "manly" bs. On top of that, this book definitely was majority straight and it seemed the MC's were the only LGBTQ+ characters, they didn't seem to know any other or be friends with other LGBTQ+ characters. There's one character right at the very end that we meet but that's because he's getting a book next year. So maybe that's something the author needs to think about now that she seems to be diving into MM.
I didn't love this book but I didn't hate it and that seems to be my experience with this author's books. So does that mean I'm not going to read Declan's book when it comes out next year? No of course not lol. I was actually liking this book enough in the beginning, it was just the repetition that exhausted me by the end. Oh and I'll add that the "rockstar" side of things was pretty minimal which I preferred, the angst does not come from that but more the conflict of Jackson being Stone's bodyguard and how they shouldn't be doing what they are.
One Time Only by Lauren Blakely is a standalone, written in first person from dual POV. Maybe this time is a prequel to this book but you don’t have to read it.
“Everything about this is wrong. But everything about this feels right, with his body against mine.”
Stone is sweet, charming, caring and exuberant. Stone is an equal opportunity lover but is convinced his sexy bodyguard Jackson is straight.
Jackson is focused, honourable, protective and loyal. Jackson has been attracted to his boss for several months. Once they both discover they are attracted to each, they agree it will be one time only. But is one time enough?
“Once wasn’t enough. Once barely scratched the surface of my need for him.”
I loved both Stone and Jackson - they are deep, loving, sarcastic, fun, unique, not afraid to communicate or be vulnerable and of course sexy as hell. Jackstone forever!
“We were never going to be one time only.”

One Time Only was the perfect book. After building up the story and characters over 3 books now, i was hoping it would be worth the wait. And oh my god was it worth the wait. The story is passionate,emotional,heart warming. I fell in love with Jackson and stone from the second they appeared in one night only, I was hoping they'd have an epic love story to match thier big personalitys. And can we just talk about the sex scenes for a minute Hot hot hot. The chemistry s undeniable between them and to see them fall in love is truly beutiful .reminding everyone that love is love which is something the world needs to feel right now. Without a doubt this is Lauren Blakely best book to date. Wish I could give more then 5 stars for a truly magical, romantic and breathtaking love story with a perfect ending to boot.
Stone is a rock star who is mad for his bodyguard Jackson but thinks he's straight. Turns out the feeling is mutual and one night between these two sexy men turns into more. It's not all plain sailing and these two really have to work for their relationship. Such a hot, sexy, wonderful read.
Sorry I can't read this book I honestly didn't know what the book was about I I think I was too late to cancel,but I'll just let it go and before u think I have something against homosexuality I don't I just don't want to read about it,I also never saw at the beginning of the book what it was about sorry
I loved this story of the bodyguard (Jackson) & the rockstar (Stone) who fall in love despite alleging that this isn’t possible. I also loved the epilogues & yes I do mean more than one! Loved, loved it Xx
