1--What is the title of your latest release?

THE RSVP, a forbidden office romance standalone

2--What’s the “elevator pitch” for your new book?

Smart, savvy 21-year-old good girl in Manhattan crushes hard on her father’s handsome business partner, ten years her senior, and makes a plan to seduce him for her birthday.

3--How did you decide where your book was going to take place?

This story has a New York City heart, so I always intended it to be based in Manhattan, with a Fifth Avenue meets art gallery vibe.

4--Would you hang out with your heroine in real life?

Absolutely, we both love art and Broadway musicals!

5--What are three words that describe your hero?

Broody, serious, devoted

6--What’s something you learned while writing this book?

That I don’t have to wrap up the emotions in each chapter. In fact, the more I lean into the we can’t do this theme, the more the heart aches for them to give in.

7--Do you edit as you draft or wait until you are totally done?

I edit the second I find a hole I need to stitch up!

8--What’s your favorite foodie indulgence?

Sandwiches! I am a total sandwich monster!

9--Describe your writing space/office!

Sparse! I sit on a yoga ball since that’s better for my shoulders, back and posture and I write at a desk, looking out a window onto my street. Where I can see neighborhood cats.

10--Who is an author you admire?

Kennedy Ryan is a strong woman who writes powerful, joyful love stories.

11--Is there a book that changed your life?

Oh wow. I’d hate to leave out an important book. In some ways, perhaps it would be The Promise by Danielle Steele, which I read when I was twelve. It was my first romance and it hooked me on the genre.

12--Tell us about when you got “the call.” (when you found out your book was going to be published)


13--What’s your favorite genre to read?

Romance, of course! Ideally, sexy. I also love celebrity memoirs.

14--What’s your favorite movie?

Raiders of the Lost Ark, and many of my characters enjoy it too.

15--What is your favorite season?

Any 72-degree season!

16--How do you like to celebrate your birthday?

With cake, and the company of my dogs and family.

17--What’s a recent tv show/movie/book/podcast you highly recommend?

White Lotus and Our Flag Means Death are some of the best shows I’ve ever seen.

18--What’s your favorite type of cuisine?

Vegan sandwiches, made well! With French fries!

19--What do you do when you have free time?

What’s free time? Seriously though, I enjoy walking my dogs, exploring Seattle with my husband, and doing jigsaw puzzles with my daughter.

20--What can readers expect from you next?

The next standalone in The Virgin Society is The Tryst, coming in April. It’s a single dad/age-gap/forbidden romance full of emotions! But I’ll also release the sexy enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy My So Called Sex Life before then, in March!

THE RSVP by Lauren Blakely

The Virgin Society #1


A new, forbidden, virgin + father’s business partner, standalone office romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely!

Our days are full of secrets. Our nights are for seduction…

For the last year, I’ve wanted someone I can’t have.

The man my father built his latest multimillion dollar business with.

He’s a decade older than I am, and he’s entirely forbidden.

The fact that he’s never given me a second glance only makes me long for him more.

But the other night, across the room at a gala, everything changed. His broody gaze lingered on me and grew darker.

So I’m officially done being the good girl.

Tomorrow I turn 21. As a gift to myself, I plan to seduce my father’s business partner.

Happy birthday to me.
