Book Review: THE WHAT IF GUY by Lauren Blakely

Book 2 of the Guys Who Got Away series


It should be an easy rule to follow – don’t bang your boss…

But I didn’t know who he was when I met him.

And the first time I saw him, our connection sounded like the stuff of romantic legends — that whole “their eyes locked across a crowded room” moment that turned into more.

I didn’t believe it. . . . until it happened to me.

Fine, the charming, clever, sexy-as-sin guy in the tailored suit was only trying to buy the same Snoopy lunchbox (as a gift!), but still, our eyes totally locked, and my lady parts definitely tingled as we vied for the prize.

Naturally, I did what any badass business woman would do. Negotiated for the lunchbox, then found my what-if guy online and made plans to see him the next night.

One night only — that was the deal we made.

But one fantastic night had us both changing our minds in the morning. And making plans for another.

Until I walked into the office to learn he just bought my company.

And here’s the biggest rule of romantic legends — no matter what, don’t bang your boss.

Especially if you’re already falling for him.

THE WHAT IF GUY is a sexy standalone you can escape into!


Banter at it’s best. I loved it! They met in one of the weirdest meet cutes ever, but it was worth it.

Don’t give up on love, it can happen at any time.

Logan & Bryn are after the same lunchbox. They’re completely taken in with one another, but neither has the courage to make a move other than “fight” over this lunchbox.

I enjoyed this story just as much as the first book, where you meet Logan for the first time. These two are the sweetest. After searching via the same social media mediums, they find each other only to discover some time later that Logan is Bryn’s new boss. They try so hard to hide their interest in one another, but it’s inevitable that they get together.

Respect, love, laughter, honesty and great sex are the six key things in a relationship according to these two and I couldn’t agree more.
