A fiery, passionate MM forbidden romance novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely...
Ever hear the story about the bodyguard who falls for the rock star?
Yeah, it never ends well.
Each day I remind myself that it's my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming man.
Especially since we're opposites.
But every night I spend with him the dangerous, off-limits attraction grows more intense. 
Until one night in a limo when we combust.
One time only will have to be enough. One scorching, forbidden night.
Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me. And if I give in again, I'll lose everything. 
But sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you. No matter the cost.

    One Time Only is a steamy forbidden M/M romance by Lauren Blakely. Let me tell you, her books just get hotter and hotter. One Time Only brings us one fine rockstar and his equally fine bodyguard who can no longer fight their attraction and agree to “just one time” to get “it” out of their systems. Holy smokes, is all I can say! She needed to throw in a firefighter to help put out the flames. On top of the heat, the sweet and tender side to both these men will melt your heart and have you routing for “Jackstone” too!
  • Fiery hot!

    Wowza! A scorching hot forbidden M/M storyline! There’s so much chemistry and passion between Stone and Jackson, as well as their vulnerability. Their story heats up the pages and you won’t be able to put it down. I also started the audiobook and Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton are nailing the narration! So whether you want to read or listen, one click.
  • Great read!

    What a beautiful dedication about love, life and truth. Someday we will live in a world where every single person feels that way! The amazing Lauren Blakely has most certainly done M/M on point again!!! Stone and Jackson’s story is everything!! What a wonderful love story. I love how everything plays out for them and what they become to each other!! Their taboo boss/employee relationship is so dang hot, steamy, sexy, emotional and sweet all wrapped into one. They are just absolutely perfect for each other. Stone is the quintessential sexy, free spirited rock star and Jackson is his hot, sexy, no-nonsense bodyguard. Well that is until he decides he can't fight the pull anymore and needs some nonsense in his life in the form of Stone. I love that we get each man’s POV, as it adds so much to the feeling and emotion of the story. Not to mention Stone’s POV has a tendency to be very amusing at times. And who wouldn’t want to have a hot bodyguard falling for them? Yes please! Especially one with a vulnerable side too. This audiobook could not have been cast any better! These very talented actors, Jacob Morgan as Stone and Teddy Hamilton as Jackson, oooo la la they are both so delicious to listen to and they absolutely slayed it! You could feel the chemistry and passion. Love is love is love and I LOVE THESE MEN AND THIS BOOK!! #Jackstone #loveislove
  • Love, love, love

    A few words that come to mind when recalling this book: charged, spectacular, white-hot, romantic, lovely. I enjoyed this story from word one, and if you liked A Guy Walks Into My Bar, then you’re going to deeply swoon over One Time Only. As with all of Lauren’s books, she finds the perfect recipe that cooks up a fabulous tale. Bodyguards meets Rockstar is the main vein but its the heart ( yes, pun intended) that beats this story alive. It was sexy, it was heartfelt and it was pure fun!
  • 5 sexy and swoons stars

    I'm in love. I. AM. IN. LOVE people! Lauren Blakely gives us not one but TWO amazingly sexy heroes to swoon over and swoon you will! Stone and Jackson are exactly what book boyfriends are made of! Blakely delivered another incredible M/M story and I couldn't get enough. Ms. Blakely outdid herself with Stone and Jackson. These two are so incredibly swoon-worthy. Yes, I know I said it before but I cannot stress it enough. I'm talking grade-A perfection! Stone, the sexy rockstar with a heart of gold was completely endearing. His easy-going, laid back nature was infectious. Jackson, the sexy, serious bodyguard was the perfect complement to Stone with his deadpan delivery and fierce protectiveness. As Stone broke through Jackson's hard exterior, he found a cuddly teddy bear underneath. As their layers were peeled back, Stone and Jackson both showed their vulnerability and it was truly heartwarming. Blakely knows how to write a sexy story but this one is completely electrifying. I swear the heat was turned up to 1000 degrees throughout the book. Holy hotness people! This one will definitely get your motor running for sure! I loved every single thing about One Time Only. Stellar writing coupled with incredible characters and a hotter than Hades storyline makes this book an absolute must-read. It's romantic, funny and you'll fall head over heels for JackStone from the first page. I'd give this one more than 5 stars if I could!!!
