Publisher's Summary

A fiery, passionate MM forbidden romance from number one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely, performed by Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton!

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.

✫✫ All the Stars ✫✫

This was my most anticipated book of 2020 and it's no surprise that this is now my favorite Lauren Blakely book to date! I love Stone & Jackson, they are so different but their chemistry and attraction for each other was palpable. Not only could I feel the love but man these two were HOT! The sex scenes were plenty and that is what I expected because of the build up of sexual tension between these two in other books by this author. The ending of this book had my heart soaring because I love LOVE and I love HEA even more and their HEA was perfect. I am a huge fan of MM Romance and I especially love that Lauren writes true MM Romance, no GFY or hiding, no shame, just a love story between to people!
I will admit that I loved this book so much that I listened to it twice back to bcak because It left me with such a happy heart.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now I NEED to talk about the narration! Anyone who's ever listened to Teddy and Jacob know that they are amazing and together they steal the show. I was just finishing another MM Series with these two when I received One Time Only so I was a little concerned I would struggle to transition them into the new characters, Boy I was SO wrong. In Chapter 1 they were Jackson and Stone! Jacob embodied Stone, he really brought out Stone's personality, his playfulness and even his insecurities. Teddy is my favorite male narrator and his performance in this book reminds me why. To me he is the perfect nice guy next door but when he became Jackson he showed off just how great an actor he is. Jackson is intense and quiet but also passionate and dominating and Teddy became all of those things, gone was the normal nice guy and the transformation was incredible.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As usual with Lauren Blakely's audiobooks she adds some fun extras. This one has a Stella Hunter interview with Teddy and Jacob which was so fun and also a little teaser of the next MM Lauren Blakely book Scoring With Him also narrated by Teddy and Jacob! I'm already counting down the days!

Love who you love

This book is off the charts hot but there is also so much love and emotions.

Stone Zenith is a famous rock star that lives his life to the fullest. He loves men but he isn't opposed to loving women as well and he has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. He has an unhealthy attraction to his bodyguard but he can't get a read on him if he is into men or women or both.

Jackson Pearce is Stone's bodyguard. Strong, broody, and professional and also attracted to his client. He can't cross that line no matter how much he wants to. There is too much on the line for him but that line becomes blurry when the heat between them finally explodes.

This is a great book about LOVE and passion and being free to love whoever you love. It is extremely hot as Queen B always delivers but it's also a great story and I enjoyed all of it.

Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan were perfect. Teddy with his manly man, take charge broody voice and Jacob with his playful full of life zeal. They were fantastic to listen to. There is also bonus content at the end with an interview that is so good and a tease of what's to come next year.

Get ready for an extremely hot MM story that will also melt your heart with love. I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.

#JackStone is worth the wait!

I was so excited for this book after hearing the teaser at the end of One Night Only and this book did NOT disappoint. Once I got to listen to it I just absolutely fell in love with Stone and Jackson. It was off the charts attraction right from the moment they laid eyes on each other and it doesn't stop through the entire book. The flirting and joking and just full on want they had for each other just kept me glued to my headphones. In addition our two main characters, I also loved Stone's relationship with his family, well aside from his Dad and Jackson's relationship with his sisters. The text messages were funny. Honestly, this a book you're gonna want!


Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton gave outstanding performances in this audiobook.  They made me laugh and cry and really feel every emotion that Stone and Jackson were feeling in the story. I also loved the hot and sweet epilogues and of course the interview at the end with Stella.

So good!

JackStone. How cool is that? Jackson is Stone's bodyguard and is attracted to the rock star. But you can't mix business with pleasure can you? Lauren Blakely has given us the best of her heart when she wrote this one. One Time Only lets us take the journey of Jackson and Stone's intimate love story. Stone is quite the player, and I was a little concerned when it came to playing with Jackson's heart. But as we get to know him, there is a lot more to him than meets the eye. Jackson is the broody, quiet one, very private and knows that you can't cross that line. But once they do, there is no going back. A little bit of a slow burn that explodes into wild passion. These two definitely have their share of fun in bed. But it's not all about the sex. It's the friendship these two have. It's the family connections that keep them true to themselves. And it's the love they have for each other that shines through. This is an amazing listen, one of my favorite Blakely books to date.

And as always, she picks the best story tellers to read this one to us. Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton have a chemistry all their own when it comes to narrating MM books. Morgan as the rock star even serenades us a couple of times! It's perfectly suited to these two and it couldn't have been more enjoyable.

A very sexy love story!!

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!!

Disappointed in Blakely

I've avoided L. Blakely's work in the past because in the big scheme of book writing hers are what I consider fluff. I bought this because Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan are among my favorite narrator's but even they couldn't hold my attention. Morgan and Hamilton have done M/M before maybe Blakely should research M/M novels prior to writing any more. Beneath the Stain by Amy Lane, Temptation Series by Ella Frank, Him by Sarina Bowen. I guess I was hoping for was substance, I wanted some depth and what I got only scratched the surface or an itch that couldn't be scratched at all. This story could have been so much more.

Lauren + Jacob + Teddy = perfection.

One Time Only is Lauren Blakely's newest, sexy, MM, bodyguard, rock star romance. Let that sink in for a second! I've been a fan of Lauren's since she released her first book and I have read them all and never looked back. She's Queen LB for a reason. She can write anything and now she's mastering MM. Her stories are always filled with love, sexiness, fun, friends and laughs. If you've read One Night Only you've met Stone, the sexy rock star and Jackson, his bodyguard. Jackson has been protecting Stone for months. They have a interesting dynamic. They chat, give each other a hard time and Stone tries to make Jackson crack a smile. There's also a simmering attraction happening that they are both trying to hide. Jackson can't compromise his job and Stone's safety. Stone isn't sure how Jackson feels about him. Stone can't help but tease Jackson and one night it's on. Jackson can't keep his hands off Stone anymore and Stone isn't one to say no. Once they give in to their attraction, they can't stop thinking about each other. Maybe it's just going to take a few nights to get it out of their systems. Being able to touch each other. Kiss. Wake up together. Except what happens when they start to fall? Will Jackson be able to protect Stone? Will Stone fight for his man? This story. These men. Oh my Lord! The hotness is off the charts. When they were together, they were on fire and so was I! Stone is so sexy with his fun-loving attitude, love and loyalty for those he cares for and the way he just gets people. Jackson is big, strong and sexy, but sweet, loving and dominate. I was laughing out loud, swooning and fanning myself! #Jackstone forever.

Audio: I didn't think Jacob and Teddy could possibly get any better. They were freaking amazing as Stone and Jackson. Lauren's fantastic words with their narration is pure gold!

JackStone is Electric! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic’s Read

Jackson is Stone’s bodyguard... he is off limits. One Time Only... that’s what they agree on. I for one would not be able to ignore the fireworks 💥... they are
🔥!!

Narrators Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton are perfect choices for this story. They make you feel the longing and the desire.

5 🔥 Scorching Stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I felt something was lacking

One night only is a steamy romance and on the steam front it totally delivered, but it was lacking for me in the relationship between the two main characters. I think that the issue was that there was a lack of communication and chemistry. Both characters were interesting, and I liked them but their words seem like just that, words, a dialogue.
While both narrators did a good job, I am uncertain whether the lack of connection is due to the writing or the narration

Sweet, sexy & emotional

I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this book. It had a lot of build up and seemed to rely heavily on the narrator pair-up. That being said, I really enjoyed it. It was a tad on the long side, but I enjoyed the story and the characters, who we first got to meet in One Night Only, and the main characters from that book pop up in here too as side characters. Stone and Jackson are so good together. The attraction is palpable between them. They have sweet, sexy, and emotional moments that will keep you glued to the story.

I got frustrated with Jackson a little. His issues about his job seemed to be over the top. But maybe that's because I just loved Jackson and Stone together and didn't want to see them in conflict? The resolution to the conflict was fantastic though and got all the swoon meters.

I did feel that there was a lot of sex in this story and it didn’t always feel necessary to move the story along, it felt that it was there for the narration more than the story. Don’t get me wrong, it was written well, it just felt unnecessary.

Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan are always great when they pair up and this book is no different. They are a joy to listen to and bring all the emotion, humour, and sexy. Jacob singing was a real treat. The production was great with no issues of note.

I think Lauren’s second M/M is better than the first and I’m sure she’ll continue to grow in strength in this genre.

5 Passionate, sexy and emotional stars

A truly wonderful MM rockstar romance that I’ve been impatiently waiting for since One Night Only, when we met rock god Stone Zenith and his sexy bodyguard Jackson Pearce after Stone performed at The Extravagant in Las Vegas. I’ll tell you now, I was not disappointed. I was far from disappointed. I was in heaven. The story was everything I wanted and more. Stone is a player, with both men and women (he’s not fussy), he loves being a rockstar, he loves his life, he loves sex (anyway, anyhow). He’s also very much attracted to his bodyguard, too bad the sexy ex marine is not into guys. Or is he? After one unexpected kiss everything changes, and herein starts a truly sexy, emotional and yes, passionate rollercoaster romance. Bodyguards and the stupid code of ethics they live by getting in the way of my happy ever after. Jackson wanting to do the right thing, and Stone being way too understanding. Just do it already, that’s what I say. Unbelievable chemistry, an addictive storyline, and no holds barred bedroom antics. One of my favourite genres written by one of my favourite authors, then to top it off on the audio version, we have narration from Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton that makes for a scorching hot audio that will have you blushing. I loved it. I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest review.

Completly different from what I have excepted

I'm probably not the first one thag choose the audio book by duo or narrators rather than author. But I'm glad I did. Interesting story and amazing interview in the end as a bonus.

Amazing book

Oh my.... I'm not entirely sure I have words to describe how much I loved this book. The forbidden but undeniable attraction between the rock star and his bodyguard that slowly but surely turns to true love.

Lauren Blakely writes MM with so much skill that I wish she'd never write anything else! The story is incredibly well written with such believable characters brought to life by the amazing Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan.

And hot. So, so hot!

Great narration, okay book.

You honestly can't go wrong with Teddy Hamilton or Jacob Morgan.
Fantastic narration of a fairly average book.
The story is predictable, nothing particularly interesting or different happens, it just flows along as you would expect.
Stone is a funny character he is witty and amusing, Jackson on the other hand is the standard cardboard cut out of a bodyguard character.
It is a typical Lauren Blakely book. Low angst, characters that are not particularly mind blowing, light, nothing really stands out as memorable and you listen or read once and you don't go back again.

Wow

This was a great read, loved the passion between the characters. Loved Jackson’s, strength to be true to himself and think a plan out for them to be together without compromising his beliefs. A great read.
Narration was truly awesome.
