I need a fake date. She needs my late-night expertise. Now, if we can just keep our hands off each other…
As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of “I dos,” I turn to my gorgeous, clever, witty best friend’s sister. She’s my good friend, too, and I lust after her completely. I mean, I TRUST her completely.
After all, just look how she’s kept her lips sealed about the hot, multi-O night we spent together. Yes, just look at those sexy lips.
In any case, we only fell off the wagon once, and it was months ago. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo.
Or can we?

Longtime friends, Jason Reynolds and Truly Goodman, have effortless chemistry, exchanging whip-smart banter with practiced ease and delighting in teasing each other mercilessly. If there’s a flirtatious undertone to said teasing as well as a hint of undisguised innuendo sprinkled throughout their conversations, it’s because the recollection of their one night together refuses to fade away. But a fear of betraying Truly’s brother, who just so happens to be Jason’s best friend, ensures their relationship remains strictly in the friend zone…or at least that’s the plan.
When the charming, gentlemanly Brit recruits the cool, confident bar owner to help with his side gig as a best-man-for-hire, their innocent role-playing as a couple is more like foreplay, especially with Jason using their night together as ammunition. He taunts Truly with X-rated memories, ensuring that their red-hot encounter stays fresh in her mind (not that she needed any help with that). Jason may have sculpted his career around being a modern gentleman but Truly undoubtedly brings out his naughty side. Their romance might start off as a slow-burn but the ever-present sexual tension between Jason and Truly quickly turns up the heat factor.
With protagonists that are multidimensional, intriguing, and compelling, an extended cast of characters that provides endless entertainment, and a love story that’ll have you swooning, fanning your face, and grinning from ear to ear, Instant Gratification is another must-read rom-com from Lauren Blakely. If you’re in the mood for a humorous, lighthearted read that hooks you from the start and keeps you captivated until the very end, you need to add this book to your TBR list!
