Malone definitely delivers in this swoony RomCom!
***I’m doing it again.
I’m flirting with her.
Caught up in the vortex of Sloane Elizabeth. She’s a hurricane of sexuality, a storm of lust and desire, and I want to be caught in the eye.
Whoa! These two have the sexual tension hoping right off the pages! I love a good second chance romance and this one is so swoony! A sexy vet, who also moonlights signing? Yes please!!
I love these characters. I love that Malone is trying to do right by his partner, and by his father - what he thinks his father would have wanted for him. It’s honorable. But I loved it more when he realized that he needed to do what his heart wanted over what his head was telling him, and that is to not let Sloane get away the second time!!
Lots of sweet and oh so steamy moments in this new sexy romance from LB!

This book is guaranteed to give you satisfaction. A five star read!
This book left me satisfied!
I laughed out loud reading the first page, and my enjoyment continued through the whole book! I love when Lauren Blakely writes a rom-com from the male POV, in this case Malone. We do get snippets of what the female lead, Sloane, is thinking. This is a second-chance romance with a little forbidden and office romance thrown in between for Malone & Sloane. Their chemistry was there from the beginning, & I was rooting for them. I also loved that was only a little angst towards the end. This is just a sexy, fun, easy read that definitely left me satisfied! I received a copy of this ebook from Candi Kane PR for my honest review.
If Malone Goodman was meant to make me purr, kudos Lauren Blakely. You succeeded. Because puuuurrrrr!!
I loved this book! This super cute second chance forbidden rom com is every bit as sexy, swoony and fun as I've come to expect from Lauren Blakely's books. She once again gave us two characters who were so utterly perfect for each other. It would have been criminal if they were not together. Sloane and Malone (Gah! They rhyme! So cute!) have amazing chemistry. I absolutely loved their share love for animals and how they well they were together. Because Sloane was the daughter of his business partner, it created the most delicious yearning and forbiddenness. I could not get enough.
Speaking of not getting enough. I want more Malone in my life. I'm so insanely in love with this charming, talented, crazy sexy man. He's a singing vet for goodness sakes. He sang to a cat. Swoon! So much swoon. I'd like to go to Tahiti with him.
Satisfaction Guaranteed is fast paced, flirty goodness! With Lauren Blakely's classic witty banter and amazing characterization, it's a definite must read.
ANOTHER GREAT LAUREN BLAKELY BOOK
By Bookish Inn
*** I RECEIVED AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW*** I've said this before, but every time I think I've found my favorite Lauren Blakely book, she releases a new one that immediately makes it to the top of my favorites list. Satisfaction Guaranteed is definitely one of my favorite Blakely books, but also one of my fave books for 2019, so far. Not only did this story have two extremely relatable, funny, smart, sexy characters, but we got to re-visit some fave characters from the Big Rock Series. I always get SO EXCITED when I get to catch up with some characters from previous stories I've also loved. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, Malone and Sloane (their names are everything). Their names are so fitting for the type of characters they were with their flirtatious and banter dialogue. I felt their attraction with each exchange they had throughout the book. Their story was one that can cover many different tropes (forbidden, co-workers, friends - lovers, and even second chance). Sloane and Malone met seven years ago and they had instant chemistry, both physical and emotional. They spent some time together and the more they learned about each other, the more infatuated they become with one another. That is until Malone realized that this amazing woman was the only daughter of his mentor; his boss, which made Sloane completely off limits. Sloane and Malone parted ways, but they kept tabs on each other throughout the years (which included some slight social media stalking). When Malone and Sloane had spent time together before realizing they could not pursue their relationship, they had confided in each other and talked about heir dreams. They encouraged each other to pursue something that made them happy. Seven years later, they bump into each other and their chemistry stronger than it was before, if that is at all possible. They had a natural magnetizing attraction despite knowing that they could not pursue their desires and follow their heart. They shared a kiss during that brief encounter, thus setting the course that will follow them after seven years apart. When work circumstances bring them together, under the same Veterinary Practice, Sloan and Malone and truly faced with temptation and their flirtatious relationship and conversations are natural. Lauren gave us so much swooness in this book. I couldn't put it down. I'm sure this book will be one of my top re-reads of this year and others to follow as it is one of those stories that really brings you to a happy place. You will not be able to stop smiling, laughing, awwwing, and rooting for these two wonderful characters. Thank you Lauren for another amazing book.
Lauren can write the hell out of a male POV romance! Malone is the man!
Lauran Blakely has absolutely become my go to for cute light romance books this year! She always does a great job creating characters that I actually like throughout the entire book.
Malone is an attractive vet who loves his job and his patients, and to add to the sexiness factor he sings at clubs in his free time. Sloane started a rescue clinic to help find foster and adoptive families for pets, together they are the perfect animal loving couple! The chemistry between Sloane and Malone (I love the rhyming names) is off the charts and I couldn't help but smile at their constant flirty banter. Characters from previous books always seem to pop up in Lauren Blakely books (I need to make a character cheat sheet), and I love to see how all the couples are doing. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out, I really want to know more about Truly (Malone's twin) because I loved her sass every time she was brought up in the book!
Satisfaction Guaranteed was absolutely purrrfect!! Second chance romances are my favorite and this one checked all the boxes! After seven years of wanting and not being able to act on that desire, temptation becomes “O” too much!! Malone and Sloane’s chemistry is too hot to be contained. What’s not to love about a hot, sexy singing veterinarian and sweet and sexy animal rescuer! This is definitely a 5 star read for me!
Satisfaction is Guaranteed
Satisfaction Guaranteed was a fantastic read. It’s funny, swoon-worthy, heartfelt. Sloane and Malone (the rhyming names was cute) were great. The chemistry was undeniable and I enjoyed seeing these two navigate through their journey. They were just magnificent together. They had the best banter/interactions and their times together were cute. Malone gave great swoon and Sloane was sweet and fun. I was smiling all throughout the story. Lauren is a wonderful storyteller and her characters are fantastic. I loved it. Overall this was a satisfaction guaranteed perfect summer read. I am so excited for the next book in the series-it will be amazing.
🎶 Let Me Call You Sweetheart
This was such a sweet and cute second chance romance! Lauren Blakely sets the bar so high for male POV romcoms!
I loved how from the start our hero and heroine only have eyes for each other. 7 years may have passed, but their attraction and chemistry is just as strong as it was when they first met. Malone and Sloane were amazing together and I appreciated that they were both mature adults who were open and honest with each other. Yes, there are some missteps along the way, but the obstacles they faced were realistic and understandable.
Malone is one of Lauren Blakely's swooniest heroes ever! He's smart, funny, kind, loves animals, respectful, sings, and is gorgeous. When he sang "Wonderful Tonight" to Sloane, I was a puddle on the floor. *SWOON* What impressed me most about him though, was his reaction to Sloane's "thing". I don't think most guys would be able to put their ego aside and 1) be as understanding and patient and 2) devote themselves so fully to overcoming it. I really couldn't help but root for Malone and Sloane to finally find their HEA.
The cameos by previous characters from Lauren Blakely's other books (like Big Rock and Mister O) were such a treat and I always love those little Easter eggs. They bring all the characters and worlds together in such a fun way. I'm really looking forward to the next book, Instant Gratification, which features Malone's sister, Truly, and his best friend, Jason. If you were a fan of Lauren Blakely's Big Rock series, you are going to love Satisfaction Guaranteed!
*I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*
