Book Review | Birthday Suit by Lauren Blakely (@LaurenBlakely3)

There is no rule in the Man Code as unbreakable as this: no matter how beautiful, smart, clever, and witty she is, do not—under any circumstances—fall in love with your best friend’s woman.

Yeah. So there’s that. Look, it’s not like I didn’t know I screwed up by falling for her.
Also, for the record, unrequited love sucks big time.
And, I might have cut myself some slack by now, given everything that went down in the last few years, but Lulu just walked back into my life in a big way.

There are three things I've never been able to resist—my friends, my family, and chocolate.
Leo Hennessy? He was nowhere on that list. He's been a true friend—a friend who walked through hell and back with me.
Now, I'm stepping into my new future. I didn't expect it to include a riddle-filled, race-against-the-clock scavenger hunt across New York City.
With Leo.
Suddenly, I'm looking at this man with new eyes...
But my life spun out because of a man once before, and I can’t risk my fresh start, no matter what the temptation. And Leo is most definitely a temptation of the sexiest, sweetest, and most dangerous variety.
More irresistibly delicious than chocolate...

"This touching tale kept me invested from start to finish. It made me feel many things, sad, happy, hopeful and... hungry. I also enjoyed the colorful support characters and hope I'll be getting to know some of them better in a future book."

Lulu is just starting her chocolate business. After an unsuccessful marriage, she was now back in her tracks, trying to make a name for herself in the industry and finally living her dreams. What she didn't expect is to come across Leo, her ex-husband's best friend, the best man to their wedding, and the third musketeer in their group.

It has been some time since Leo saw Lulu. She was more beautiful than ever, and she was single. He had been in love with her first but made way for his best friend. He never acted on his feelings. Now she was single, and an arms-length away. Will he finally make his move?

Just like any Lauren Blakely book, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, the initial mystery surrounding the three musketeers. What happened to them in the past? Who is that other person in the past? And what happened to that other person? Is Leo and Lulu going to have their HEA? Or will this person from the past prevent them from getting there?

I just love Lulu and Leo, and one thing is for sure is that they both deserve a happy ending after what they have been through. I love Lulu and her determination and her wanting of not settling for anything less than what she truly deserves. Leo's loyalty is both his strength and his weakness. But he's kind, funny and he simply deserves the best as well.

I adore every single page, on how the story finally unravel. It was perfectly paced. Not to mention that extra chapter that made my heart truly ache in a wonderful way.

I will never view making, eating, looking at chocolates the same way again. Lauren Blakely made a delectable novel filled with not just sweetness, but a touch of spice and bitterness, with a dose of unforgettable taste that will satisfy your bookish-palate.
