Review: Overnight Service by Lauren Blakely (Always Satisfied #4)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.

Overnight Service is the fourth novel in Lauren Blakely's Always Satisfied series, and just like the three books before it, this newest addition has, indeed, left me rather satisfied. This is an enemies-to-lovers romance with a second-chance feel to it, and as always, Blakely's mix of heat, heart, and hahas makes for the ideal read to kick off a new week. This can be a read as a standalone, but there are a number of recurring characters, and not just from the earlier books in this series. You don't necessarily need to read those previous books, but if you happen to be a fan of Blakely's and are familiar with her other romantic comedies--like me!--then you'll be tickled to reconnect with these recognizable names and personalities. So again, you don't have to read any other book to fully enjoy the story that's in Overnight Service...BUT I have no qualms being a book pimp and pushing you to read them anyway.

Josh Summers and Haven Delilah are sports agents and each other's number one rival, but they weren't always enemies. There was a point in time when they worked in the same office and Haven was Josh's protege...and lover. But things have changed, and while they have rules that they try to live by, especially when they happen to be in each other's presence, one thing that remains the same is their damn attraction to one another. Instead of doing the foolish thing and giving in to their connection--again--they push each other's buttons whenever they get the chance, and why not do with a bit of not-so-friendly competition? Whoever manages to sign the next big thing in sports will don attire chosen by the victor. Wooing and scouting a promising athlete isn't necessarily an easy feat to accomplish, but it may be a walk in the park compared to convincing themselves its simply hate sex between them.

There wasn't a whole lot of love lost between Josh and Haven, and it wasn't merely a matter of them pretending to hate each other to cover up deeper feelings. There's a reason why they went their separate ways, but there's also no denying that it wasn't just sex between them before. I loved the back and forth that these two engaged in time and again. Their exchanges could go from biting to flirty and still remain fodder for romance read junkies like me. While most of the book is told in Josh's and Haven's dual perspectives, there are certain chapters that are actually told from the point of view of certain supporting characters, but not necessarily focusing on Josh and Haven's story. On my end, I didn't find this distracting since my curiosity was pinged as to what was happening with those side characters as well. Overall, Overnight Service was a fun read that kicked off my week quite happily. Five stars. ♥
