Jennie.Reads - Love
Yesss!! A thousand times yes! This was super adorable and cute. I loved the lack of drama. I also loved that It was short but complete. I loved both Quinn and Vaughn, and I loved the glimpses of their families we got. Lauren Blakely was one of the first romance authors I read, and I have no idea why it's taken me so long to read something else from her!
Hope in Gulfport - Loved
Perfect read when you are not quite sleepy enough!!!!
harlanfflp34 - Great Read

Sweet love stories that are easy reads and full of love and romance.
TravelingZ3 - Slow reac
I thought the characters did not have much excitement and rather boring read.

A sweet quick read. Worth the read.
Demeterabundance - Exactly what I needed
I love Lauren Blakely’s books. This was exactly the kind of pick me up I needed this week. Light hearted, steamy, and hot.

Crazy not lazy - Special Delivery
Loved the book, but entirely too short! The book was funny throughout and was well written. I hope all of her books will be a little longer. I’m looking forward to reading her other books!

Crystal's Book World - Must Read!!!!
From the moment I started reading this book, I became addicted to the story line and most of all the main characters. Quinn and Vaughn had everything you needed to make it happen. It was magical and gets you ready for the rest of the story. You have the chemistry, the bits of pieces of laughter, and the mood that brings in the love for this holiday season! I loved every single page!
Shelly062498 - Sweet and full of heat!
****The way I feel has everything to do with chemistry—our chemistry—and the way he looks at me, touches me, treats me.
That one most of all.
I’ve only known him a short while, but he treats me like I’m precious.
And he touches me the same way.
***He touches me reverently, and it’s addictive. It makes me shudder.
Sigh. So sweet! Vaughn is totally swoon worthy, sweet and romantic and sexy and fun! The entire package!
This is a great holiday novella - packed with charm, Fire and all the holiday goodness too! Sure to warm up your hearts and kindles this holiday season!
Sandra Two Book Pushers - Now...that’s a delivery!
Oh, my Christmas that was adorable and naughty!!! I just finished up Overnight Service last night and there was a tease to Vaughn and Quinn’s story so I had to start right away.
Vaughn and Quinn were both on romance diet. No hookups. No dating. No romance. It had been easy over the last year then their eyes met and it was over. They wanted a taste. A cheat day. Except this was just one dinner to discuss an upcoming Christmas company party. With Vaughn’s new business partner’s little sister. He could resist one dinner especially with the brother sitting in. Well...it seems Josh hates parties and planning so now it was up to them. Oh, they were so screwed.
Can two Christmas-lovers spend their nights planning an extravaganza without landing themselves on the naughty list?
Of course not!!! This is a Lauren Blakely book! Many of her characters are on the extra-naughty list. I loved every minute of this chemistry filled story. It’s actually one of my favorite novellas. Ever. It gave me all the feels. Vaughn and Quinn are so sweet, fun, and passionate. It’s hard to make a reader cry in such a small amount of words but Lauren has done it again!
P.S Spoiler Alert — You are going to love it!!
“You don’t really have an ugly Christmas sweater collection, do you?”
“Maybe I do. Maybe I don’t. Maybe you need to tell me why you deserved coal in your stocking.”
For a few delicious seconds, he dives in, kissing with intent, leaving me with the promise of how his touch might be—thorough and attentive enough to make my toes curl.
“Merry Christmas to me, and it’s not even Thanksgiving,” he says, his voice smoky.
GreyGirl50 - Delightful characters!
I’ve been a fan of Lauren’s writing forever and whether it’s a full length book or a Christmas novella like “Special Delivery” I know I’m going to love watching her characters fall in love. Both Quinn and Vaughn have been hurt before and have sworn off dating but from the minute they’re introduced to each other their chemistry is off the charts. My only regret is that this fun, flirty and deliciously naughty story ended much too soon because I would have loved to spend more time in the company of these delightful characters.
Stacyotr - Perfect!!
I can’t tell you enough how much I loved Quinn and Vaughn’s story in Special Delivery. The chemistry was immediate and unavoidable with everything they had in common. If you like insta love romance, and want a hot and sweet holiday story that will put a smile on your face and make you feel good, then Lauren Blakely has delivered just what you’ve asked for! Her Always Satisfied Series is one of my favorites, and this book has just made it even more so!
gabbysreading - Sexy and charming with playful banter and holiday cheer
If I wasn't in the holiday spirit before, then Lauren Blakely's Special Delivery would have had me stringing lights and hanging garlands all while listening to Frosty the Snowman and enjoying a cup of candy cane hot chocolate. Sexy and charming with playful banter and out of this world character chemistry, I adored this novella.
Vaughn and Quinn are so perfect for each other. I was already in love with these two after meeting them in Overnight Service. It was inevitable that I would fall even harder after this story. Tasked to plan the agency's Christmas party together, you could feel their connection instantly. Both parties had sworn off relationships after they were both previously burned. However, their red hot connection was just too strong to ignore. They handled their relationship with so much maturity and love. It was refreshing to see. Yes, it may have been a little too instalovey but in this case that didn't bother me.
Vaughn is such a genuinely good guy. Totally swoon worthy. You can tell he cares deeply for the people around him. And Quinn… As someone who hates surprises and often reads the conclusion of a book first, I felt a kindred spirit with Quinn. I love her with all her quirkiness, sass and preparedness. I could not get enough of them together. They were a great match in and out of the bedroom.
If you want a fun, flirty, quick read with so much heart and holiday cheer, I would happily recommend Special Delivery.
Bookbruin - Sweet Instalove Holiday Novella
This was a really sweet instalove holiday novella. Vaughn and Quinn were fantastic together and I loved their banter and chemistry. They were playful and sexy, but I appreciated their honesty with each other the most. They were mature adults that spoke openly about their wants and feelings and didn't let any surprises derail their growing connection. There's just enough drama to keep things interesting, but Special Delivery is a light and fun read that will get you in the holiday spirit. This little novella can be read as a standalone, but characters from Lauren Blakely's previous books do appear. I'm excited for Amy's story next!
*I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*
LisaAMM - Candy cane sticks and eggnog oh my!
Sexy, fun, quick holiday read. Special Delivery is book 5 in the series but can be read as a standalone. Quinn and Vaughn are a sexy couple that know what they want and go after it. Both have sworn off love and the opposite sex until they met each other. The chemistry between each other is off the charts. I love Quinn’s character and that she is not a wishy washy female. She knows what she wants and she goes for it. When she has questions, she asks. I love these types of character qualities.
Fun easy read that doesn’t allow you to put it down.
*I received this as an advanced reader copy for my honest opinion.
mpatane5 - Fantastic and just in time for the holidays!
A fantastic Holiday themed novella. Packed full of scorching hot chemistry with sexy, flirty and witty banter. Definitely worth the read!
starstacy - This special delivery was a gift!
I laughed out loud for so long at a line at the beginning of this novella that I couldn’t catch my breath! That is one of the reasons I loved this story! Quinn and Vaughn were concentrating on their jobs after bad break-ups, but after meeting to plan a Christmas party for Vaughn’s sports management firm they start concentrating on each other! Quinn is sassy and smart, and Vaughn is swoon-worthy. This was a Christmas themed novella with laughs, tons of heart, and a dash of heat that made it such a gift to read, and I recommend it!
I received a copy of this ebook from Candi Kane PR for my honest review.
KindleKat64 - Adorably sweet and sexy!
I absolutely loved this book and Quinn & Vaughn too! This is such a cute story filled with smart witty banter and many sweet and spicy moments. Quinn & Vaughn are so lovable and they’re just perfect together, something that becomes pretty obvious to them when they spend time together party planning. Their love of all things Christmas is just too sweet! I love the direction their story takes them with their special delivery! Another sexy and funny new RomCom from the master herself, Lauren Blakely!
Bibliophile Chloe - Lovely holiday novella!
What a lovely little holiday novella by Ms. Blakely!
The chemistry between Vaughn and Quinn was instant and hotter than a chestnut roasting over an open fire!
The flirt game between them was amazing. Double entendres aplenty! I also liked that there was no drama when they announced their relationship. There was a small, tiny bit of angst but that just makes the story all the sweeter.
If you are looking for a fun, flirty, smexy holiday romance, get your hands on this!
Litljen00 - Delightfully fun and sexy rom-com
Lauren Blakely gets a jump start on the holiday season with this delightfully fun, sexy rom-com that readers will adore. It's the perfect story to jump into the Christmas spirit any time of year and I seriously loved everything about this one! As with her other stories, Blakely brings back familiar characters to make guest appearances. But don't worry.....if you are new to her stories, you can jump right in because Special Delivery reads as a complete standalone.
I must say that I absolutely LOVED Quinn and Vaughn! They were nothing short of magnetic. Quinn is adorable---she's fun, flirty and self-assured. I just loved her energy! And Vaughn....le sigh......I swear I fell hard for him right from the start! He's smart, strong and focused and was immediately drawn to Quinn. As these two set out to plan a party together, their attraction was overwhelming in all of the best ways. Their coupling burns slowly and the payoff is spot on. And as is typical, Blakely's trademark witty banter is evident throughout. I found myself laughing and smiling constantly. Grab this fabulous read today! 5 stars
WendyR26 - A holiday treat!
Special Delivery is a cute read that will get readers in the mood for the holidays. Vaughn and Quinn were wonderful characters and Lauren gives a hot and jovial storyline. They had a flirty fun chemistry that couldn’t be denied and I enjoyed seeing their relationship progress. Their banter was just great. And of course getting the interconnections from Lauren’s other books was fabulous. Overall this was a quick, entertaining, and enjoyable novella.
KellyMacLilac - Just in time for a holiday romance
“Special Delivery” is just in time for a sexy holiday romance! A party planner meets an ex NFL star and together they make fireworks happen!
I truly enjoyed the backdrop of holiday events and the magic that the season brings into this story. Two people that have sworn off love and relationships just may be each other’s answer to the question “ do people truly have a match out there?”
Loved this book in all ways...I devoured it in one sitting despite my early meeting looming over me...I just couldn’t wait to see what happened! Vaughn and Quinn will be this years holiday treat for sure!
MaryW fan - So Fun!
Quinn & Vaughn are the perfect couple.....& have instant hot chemistry when they meet. Both have been burned on love recently & have sworn off relationships. But they can’t deny their attraction & decide a no-strings fling will be okay, since Vaughn is leaving town soon & Quinn can plan around an affair with an end date without risking her heart. Of course, fate & Lauren Blakely have other plans for them. I loved this short, easy reading story of two people you want to see end up together.....a perfect read that just makes you say awhhhh.
Suzanne Golt - Holiday Romance with all the Feels
The Always Satisfied series by Lauren Blakely is like a box of chocolates. You can’t eat just one! You want to devour them all then still wish you had more!
In Special Delivery, Quinn Summers, our heroine, a professional event planner, is introduced to Vaughn Channing, a former NFL tight-end and her brother Josh’s new business partner, when she is hired to coordinate their company’s Christmas party. We met Josh, a sports agent and now a joint business owner with his fiancé Haven, Vaughn, and Ford, in Overnight Service. I loved Special Delivery, and thankfully, there is another yummy tale in the works, Asking For A Friend, featuring Quinn’s younger sister, Amy.
Vaughn and Quinn tried to resist each other as they each have been hurt in the past, but that doesn’t last long. From their very first conversation, these two had an instant connection, amazing chemistry, and only eyes for each other. They can’t fight that loving feeling and even though they vowed to keep things simple, sparks fly when they are caught under the mistletoe and share their first electrifying kiss.
This fun, flirty, and super sexy holiday romance had me smiling from the inside out. They brought the best out in each other and made no pretense about their insatiable desire. I loved how he embraced her need to know and plan, and how she could admire his free spirit and easy nature. These two weren’t opposites per say, they just got each other and made each other a priority. They genuinely liked each other, were open and honest with their feelings, and handled life’s surprises with grace and maturity.
Lauren Blakely continues to amaze me with books I genuinely get chills reading. Every story is unique with swoon-worthy heroes and smart and sassy heroines. From the leads to all of the supporting characters, her masterful words just flow effortlessly. Her books always help me escape for a little while and for that I am forever grateful.

No tension or growth. One tone throughout
gmajoy68 - Special Delivery
Its an engaging story from start to finish. Well worth the time spent
Sandy Sch - spirted and tender romance
3.75 stars--SPECIAL DELIVERY is the fifth instalment and novella in Lauren Blakely’s contemporary, adult ALWAYS SATISFIED romance series. This is former Super Bowl-winning tight end Vaughn Channing, and party planner Quinn Summers. SPECIAL DELIVERY can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Quinn and Vaughn) SPECIAL DELIVERY follows Quinn Summers as she is tasked with planning the Christmas party for the Premier Agency, a sports management group co-owned by her brother Josh Summers and former Super Bowl-winning tight end Vaughn Channing. A meeting between Josh, Vaughn and Quinn ends with Vaughn and Quinn making arrangements for the next day, arrangements that include the start of a relationship that nobody wanted. What ensues is the quick building relationship and romance between Quinn and Vaughn, and the potential fall-out as Vaughn’s time in Manhattan draws to a close.
Vaughn Channing doesn’t do relationships, and has issues of trust when it comes to affairs of the heart. Having been burned in the past, Vaughn is on a hiatus from dating and women until he comes face to face with his business partner’s sister, a spunky, independent businesswoman who in turn, isn’t looking for a happily ever after. Time spent together planning for the upcoming holiday party finds our couple drawn closer together until the time for Vaughn to move on with his life.
The relationship between Vaughn and Quinn is one of immediate attraction; a sexually palpable attraction that threatens Vaughn and Quinn’s ‘just say no’ to relationships and love. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
We are reintroduced to Quinn’s brother Josh (Overnight Service #4), and their younger sister Amy.
SPECIAL DELIVERY is a quick read ; a fast paced novella that follows the best friend’s sister romance between two people who never expected to find love or a happily ever after. The character driven premise is engaging and inviting ; the characters are flirty and sassy; the romance is spirited and tender.

Mellaz80 - Vaughn and Quinn!
Special Delivery by Lauren Blakely
Special Delivery is such a cute, quick holiday read and features Vaughn and Quinn - characters we previously met and eagerly anticipated. The two have instant chemistry but there’s a small problem: both have sworn off dating or any other entanglement and have vowed to focus only on themselves and their careers. But what can you do what you have so much in common? Who could help themselves, dammit, when there’s mistletoe hanging there practically demanding some action? Clearly not Vaughn and Quinn.
As I said, this was a sweet and sexy read and full of all the Christmassy things most of us love. The attraction was there, the banter was there, the story was solid. A delightful Christmas novella to get you set up for the season.
*I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.
