Description

All I want for the holidays is the willpower to resist my brother’s sexy, charming, easy-on-the-eyes new business partner. 
Instead, I'm stuck planning all the holiday parties with the one guy who makes me want to break my dating diet.
Who thought that was a  good idea?
Oh, me. Yep, brilliant, strategic me who raised her hand and said yes I’d love to hang mistletoe with that hot former sports star. (Note to self: Mistletoe leads to toe-curling, knee-weakening kisses.)
And I’d love to get snowed in with the one guy I shouldn’t fall for. (Addendum to the note to self: You know exactly where eight inches of snow leads to. Ahem, eight inches.)
But as long as I can make it through the holidays I’ll be on my merry way, fa la la la la. But the holidays have a surprise for me.

    From the moment I started reading this book, I became addicted to the story line and most of all the main characters. Quinn and Vaughn had everything you needed to make it happen. It was magical and gets you ready for the rest of the story. You have the chemistry, the bits of pieces of laughter, and the mood that brings in the love for this holiday season! I loved every single page!

    ****The way I feel has everything to do with chemistry—our chemistry—and the way he looks at me, touches me, treats me. That one most of all. I’ve only known him a short while, but he treats me like I’m precious. And he touches me the same way. ***He touches me reverently, and it’s addictive. It makes me shudder. Sigh. So sweet! Vaughn is totally swoon worthy, sweet and romantic and sexy and fun! The entire package! This is a great holiday novella - packed with charm, Fire and all the holiday goodness too! Sure to warm up your hearts and kindles this holiday season!

    Oh, my Christmas that was adorable and naughty!!! I just finished up Overnight Service last night and there was a tease to Vaughn and Quinn’s story so I had to start right away. Vaughn and Quinn were both on romance diet. No hookups. No dating. No romance. It had been easy over the last year then their eyes met and it was over. They wanted a taste. A cheat day. Except this was just one dinner to discuss an upcoming Christmas company party. With Vaughn’s new business partner’s little sister. He could resist one dinner especially with the brother sitting in. Well...it seems Josh hates parties and planning so now it was up to them. Oh, they were so screwed. Can two Christmas-lovers spend their nights planning an extravaganza without landing themselves on the naughty list? Of course not!!! This is a Lauren Blakely book! Many of her characters are on the extra-naughty list. I loved every minute of this chemistry filled story. It’s actually one of my favorite novellas. Ever. It gave me all the feels. Vaughn and Quinn are so sweet, fun, and passionate. It’s hard to make a reader cry in such a small amount of words but Lauren has done it again! P.S Spoiler Alert — You are going to love it!! Quotes: “You don’t really have an ugly Christmas sweater collection, do you?” “Maybe I do. Maybe I don’t. Maybe you need to tell me why you deserved coal in your stocking.” For a few delicious seconds, he dives in, kissing with intent, leaving me with the promise of how his touch might be—thorough and attentive enough to make my toes curl. “Merry Christmas to me, and it’s not even Thanksgiving,” he says, his voice smoky.
  • Delightful characters!

    I’ve been a fan of Lauren’s writing forever and whether it’s a full length book or a Christmas novella like “Special Delivery” I know I’m going to love watching her characters fall in love. Both Quinn and Vaughn have been hurt before and have sworn off dating but from the minute they’re introduced to each other their chemistry is off the charts. My only regret is that this fun, flirty and deliciously naughty story ended much too soon because I would have loved to spend more time in the company of these delightful characters.
  • Perfect!!

    I can’t tell you enough how much I loved Quinn and Vaughn’s story in Special Delivery. The chemistry was immediate and unavoidable with everything they had in common. If you like insta love romance, and want a hot and sweet holiday story that will put a smile on your face and make you feel good, then Lauren Blakely has delivered just what you’ve asked for! Her Always Satisfied Series is one of my favorites, and this book has just made it even more so!

    If I wasn't in the holiday spirit before, then Lauren Blakely's Special Delivery would have had me stringing lights and hanging garlands all while listening to Frosty the Snowman and enjoying a cup of candy cane hot chocolate. Sexy and charming with playful banter and out of this world character chemistry, I adored this novella. Vaughn and Quinn are so perfect for each other. I was already in love with these two after meeting them in Overnight Service. It was inevitable that I would fall even harder after this story. Tasked to plan the agency's Christmas party together, you could feel their connection instantly. Both parties had sworn off relationships after they were both previously burned. However, their red hot connection was just too strong to ignore. They handled their relationship with so much maturity and love. It was refreshing to see. Yes, it may have been a little too instalovey but in this case that didn't bother me. Vaughn is such a genuinely good guy. Totally swoon worthy. You can tell he cares deeply for the people around him. And Quinn… As someone who hates surprises and often reads the conclusion of a book first, I felt a kindred spirit with Quinn. I love her with all her quirkiness, sass and preparedness. I could not get enough of them together. They were a great match in and out of the bedroom. If you want a fun, flirty, quick read with so much heart and holiday cheer, I would happily recommend Special Delivery.
  • Sweet Instalove Holiday Novella

    This was a really sweet instalove holiday novella. Vaughn and Quinn were fantastic together and I loved their banter and chemistry. They were playful and sexy, but I appreciated their honesty with each other the most. They were mature adults that spoke openly about their wants and feelings and didn't let any surprises derail their growing connection. There's just enough drama to keep things interesting, but Special Delivery is a light and fun read that will get you in the holiday spirit. This little novella can be read as a standalone, but characters from Lauren Blakely's previous books do appear. I'm excited for Amy's story next! *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*
