Man seeking woman: Hot, rich, smart, witty, self-made multimillionaire Internet genius seeks classy, intelligent, sexy, fun-loving woman who’s interested in settling down and sharing all the good things.

There. Best. Ad. Ever.

I will absolutely find the woman of my dreams, someone who’ll love me for me. Even if my sister thinks I need help dating, I’m confident I can pull this off, courtesy of the great worldwide web.

Let me just hit the upload button right now…


No. Just no. As a woman and a professional matchmaker, I can’t let Dylan Parker run this ad. He’s the catch of all catches. That’s why his sister has asked me to help her ridiculously good-looking, insanely rich, but socially clueless brother find a woman. As a broker of happily ever afters, I’m known as the Stud Finder since I make a great living pairing wildly successful women with men who won’t fleece them but will adore them. After all, what woman in her right mind wouldn’t fall in love with Dylan?

I mean, besides me. It totally won’t be me.

The problem solver in me comes out in full force. I must show him the beauty of a made bed. “Come with me.” I grab the basket of mostly-eaten chips, dump the rest, return the salsa tubs to the counter for cleaning, and reach into my wallet to leave a generous tip in the jar.

He clasps his hand over mine, shaking his head. “My treat,” he says, his voice a soft, sexy whisper. I want to protest, to tell him I insist, but he curls his hand tighter, and I’m speechless.

His hand on mine sparks a wave of goosebumps on my arms, my body telling me I like his hands on me. I want more of his touch. I imagine how I’d feel if he ran his hand up my arm, to my shoulder, through my hair. A shudder races through me, and I do my best to tamp down my reaction to a suddenly overactive imagination.

“Thank you,” I say, my voice like a feather.

“You’re welcome.” His eyes never stray from mine, and for a sliver of time he holds my gaze by the counter at Mama une’s.

Then I wrestle my attention back to my plan. We leave, and fifteen minutes later, I stroll through the front doors of the Luxe Hotel. My friend Nate Harper is the CEO, and I’ve texted him for a quick favor. The concierge greets me and hands me a room key card. Dylan and I walk past the chichi sushi restaurant in the lobby, head to the elevator, and soon arrive at room 521. I slide the card in the door.

Dylan sets a hand on my arm. “Are you trying to seduce me?”

“No,” I say quickly. Too quickly. I’m not trying to seduce him at all.

I open the door, and a perfectly modulated blast of cool air greets us. We stroll across the navy carpet to a king-size bed perfectly appointed with a gorgeous white duvet and mountains of blue velvet pillows. I gesture to it, as if I’m a saleswoman, showing it off. “Tell me. Doesn’t this bed make you want to do everything on it?”

Then, to demonstrate my point, I fall back onto it, like a snow angel.

I prop myself on my elbows and meet his eyes. His green irises darken, and his lips part. He stares at me, and something shifts. The look in his eyes is no longer challenging. He’s not asking me to prove a point. His eyes are hungry. He stares as if he’s considering my question seriously, and I realize that maybe it does sound as if I’m trying to seduce him. I’ve pushed the limits here. I’m in a hotel room, trying to prove a point to a client, and in reality, my skirt is riding up my thighs, and I’m sprawled on a pristine, inviting bed.


I am a huge fan of Lauren Blakely but I shamefully admit that I was late in the game to this admiration. Although I have known Lauren for years I had not read any of her novels until this year, that’s right, this year!!! and boy did I miss out on amazing reads. Over the summer I have read nearly ten books by Lauren and when this opportunity came up to review her book STUD FINDER with 1001 Dark Nights, I could not resist.

When I read the synopsis for STUD FINDER I wanted to throw myself into this book. Dylan is a hot sexy,  nerdy tech guy who is loaded wants to find his perfect woman and since he is a bit clueless his sister steps in and seeks a dating service to help find his true mate through Evie. 

My heart was happy because Dylan and Evie were so adorable together.  Dylan is a socially awkward hottie with a bank account as big as his brains and Evie is a smart, compassionate, sexy woman and together they are on fire, combustable with their chemistry and banter. Their journey together is so endearing and swoon worthy that you will be hard pressed not to utter the words “awwwwwwww!!” Being a novella their isn’t too much more that I can divulge but understand that you need  to read this book, you want to reads this book and NOW!

OMG! Lauren Blakely has done it again! STUD FINDER is such a sweet sexy read and true to all Blakely books it will give you all the feels above and below the belt. The perfect read to get you out of a reading slump, out of the blues or just to enjoy for the simple fact that it is all things smexy.


“Witty dialogue, fun dates, and a deliciously nerdy hero all match perfectly with a heroine who doesn’t really know she needs all that until it’s right there in front of her. Lauren Blakely has another winner with this one!”

~Crystal, Bookseller
