That irresistible, tattooed hottie who’s been flirting hard with me since he rode into town? The one who kissed me senseless in the back of a waffle truck the other day? Yeah, turns out he’s my new housemate…

Things I don’t need while up for a promotion to police sergeant—a roomie who makes me think criminal thoughts.

Can I arrest him for being too good-looking?

But I soon learn Derek is is strong, caring, generous, good with kids, and kind to puppies… and might be able to help me with my promotion, which gives me an idea...

A no-strings-attached fling with the fiery redhead who revs my engine? Why, yes, that does sound like a delicious perk of my new job in this new town.

Except, it turns out Perri’s my sexy, sassy landlord.

When she comes to me with a out-of-left-field proposition, resisting her is going to take more than handcuffs

  • All the Feels

    By Doingthisforcoinsssssdzzzzz
    I LOVED LOVED this book! Perri is so feisty on the outside but so loving on the inside, so law and order but also so very naughty. And she loves a tatted up bad boy—well at least ones who look like they are. Thankfully Derek is just her cup of tea and a genuinely good guy on the inside. Both of them have been burned by love and aren’t interested in in relationships, but the immediate and intense attraction between them could definitely have them reconsidering their stance on this. Wicked attraction, witty banter, a housing shortage, a kissing contest, and small chalkboard are all in the mix too. This is one you’ll want to re-read for all the lovely feels.

    Lauren’s talent for rom con is absolutely the best. This book is wickedly awesome, funny, serious and hot. You’ll love Perri as she pulls our tattooed handsome alpha Derek over for speeding on his motor cycle. Immediately you feel their denial of attraction. This is the story of police, paramedics, family, promotion and chemistry. It will tickle your funny bone and pull your heartstrings a great fast read. Five stars plus.
  • Review: Lucky In Love 2: The Feel Good Factor

    By @LisaHines711
    The Feel Good Factor by Lauren Blakely is the second book in her feel-good standalone romance series, Lucky In Love. The first book, which does not have to be read first, is Best Laid Plans. This is a strangers to friends and roommates to lovers romance. It has a strong female lead and a smooth talking bad boy with a heart of gold. The build up between these two is comical, hawt as heck, and absolutely combustible. Perri has no desire for a relationship as she wants to focus on her career. She has goals after all and making sergeant surpasses even the needs of her libido... Derek is in a new town to help his sister with her kids. As a paramedic he can work just about anywhere and he was done with relationships and the town he was in.When the most gorgeous cop he's ever seen pulls him over on his way into town he's grateful to get off with just a ticket but thanks to Perri's beauty and snark the ticket is the only thing he's getting off. This book is well-paced, funny, sweet, steamy, slightly angsty and was a pleasure to read! Enjoy!
  • ALL the angst!

    By I Love Story Time
    Holy Moley! This may be Lauren Blakely's HOTTEST story yet! I loved the idea that the heroine is the hot cop and the hero is a paramedic. Oh the angst! It was so much fun to read Perri and Derrick's story. I adore the small town of Lucky Falls, and I have fallen in love with the people who live there. Arden and Gabe were super cute, but my goodness, Perri and Derrick lit up the pages with their chemistry! Readers are going to fall in love with this tall, dark, and tatted bad boy with a heart of gold. I know I did! Now... I just need Shaw's story. I'm not ready to leave this cozy little town! ♥ Review by Lys I Love Story Time
  • Blakely’s hottest, sexiest, rom-com!

    By Lelypop1
    The chemistry between Derek, the tattooed, motorcycle-riding, hot, EMT and beautiful, tough-on-the-outside cop, Perri is scorching. When Derek ends up renting a room from her, they decide it’s a bad idea to act on their attraction. But this seemingly bad-boy is really a good guy who is dirty talking, flirty and they can’t help but fall for each other. This is Blakely’s hottest, sexiest, rom-com so far. Well done!
  • Friends to Lovers RomCom

    By Lisa Somerville
    The Feel Good Factor is a friends to lovers RomCom told in DPOV by Perri and Derek. Perri has always had a thing for the bad boys, the inked up, muscular, can't be resisted type, so when she pulls Derek over for speeding, she just can't seem to get him out of her head. It doesn't help that Derek talks dirty to Perri which only gets her hotter! "She's in my head and under my skin, and I want her more than I world peace, and hey, I'd really like world peace." The chemistry between Perri and Derek is off the charts especially when they become housemates! They enter a kissing contest for charity and set that as their deadline for calling it quits as neither one of them claims they want to be in a long term relationship. But as the date for the kissing contest quickly approaches, things heat up, the sex is sizzling and the chemistry undeniable, but they both keep replaying the fact that it's been said that neither is in it for the long haul. When Perri doesn't get the promotion at work, she thinks that its all because so she consumed with Derek. She mentions this to him and instead of him telling her the truth that he does want a relationship, they both decided to take a step back. Needless to say they are miserable without each other. "I want all of that because I've fallen in love with my housemate." Perri confides in her besties and Derek with his sister Jodie. Both finally admit that they are in love with each other and plan to let the other know at the Kissing Contest. I loved this friends to lovers story, it was quick and flirty read! I can't wait to read more about Shaw and Vanessa's story!
  • Cute, fast paced & H-O-T hot!

    By gabbysreading
    3.5 - 4 stars! The Feel Good Factor was super cute, fast paced and hot. The characters, side and main, really drove this story. We met both Perri and Derek (briefly) in Best Laid Plans. I couldn't wait to get their story. I love, love, love, that Lauren Blakely always makes her heroines strong, independent women. Perri is a well respected cop. She's thriving in a male dominated field. I enjoyed her spirit, her heart and her personality. I absolutely LOVED her friendship with her friends. Derek is swoon city. Dirty talking sweethearts like Derek make me weak in the knees. He came to Lucky Falls to help his sister and her kids while her husband was overseas. I mean come on hottie alert. Add in his fan yourself dirty mouth, his job as an EMT, and a motorcycle, it's obvious I never stood a chance. Unfortunately, I will admit that while I did enjoy the characters, the banter and sexiness of this book, It didn't completely wow me like some of Lauren Blakely's other books. Something was lacking for me. I'm not usually turned off by instalove but Perri and Derek's relationship may have been too instalove-ish. Feel Good Factor is still worth a pick up. Lauren Blakely is a pro at the fun, flirty sexy books. That's why she's one of automatic one-click authors.
  • I’m feeling good!!!

    By GreyGirl50
    I started feeling good the minute I set my eyes on the super sexy cover model on Lauren’s latest book! The Feel Good Factor does exactly what it advertises by setting off a chain of events that place tattooed and muscled Derek and flirty, red headed cop Perri way too close for comfort. With the sparks that fly between them it’s a wonder my iPhone didn’t burn itself to a crisp. He’s a dirty talking sexy stud with all the right moves, but he’s also a loving uncle and brother and that just make the attraction Perri feels toward him that much harder to resist. Lauren has perfected the art of combining awesome characters, sizzling sexual tension and witty banter that guarantees you’re going to feel oh-so-good about buying this awesome read.
  • This book has the feel good factor!

    This book made me feel so good, made me smile and made me swoon! I loved this book, and all the characters inside it! There was insta-lust between Perri and Derek, and I am always good with that! Their chemistry sizzles so hot throughout the whole book. I adored Perri - she was an intelligent, strong, independent woman with a strong sense self-worth who loved her job, family and friends but struggled with admitting her feelings and being vulnerable. Derek was, in my opinion, the perfect specimen of man! He was confident (if not a little cocky but could back it up!), smart, sexy, loved his family but was afraid to get his heart broken again. As I said, I even loved all the secondary characters in this book. This book is a perfect, fun, sexy, quick read that had me engaged the whole time! I highly recommend this romance!
