Big Rock by Lauren Blakely

Book Description

It's not just the motion of the ocean, ladies. It's definitely the SIZE of the boat too.

And I've got both firing on all cylinders. In fact, I have ALL the right assets. Looks, brains, my own money, and a big cock.

You might think I'm an asshole. I sound like one, don’t I? I'm hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse.

Guess what? You haven't heard my story before. Sure, I might be a playboy, like the NY gossip rags call me. But I’m the playboy who’s actually a great guy. Which makes me one of a kind.

The only trouble is, my dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I’ve got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancĂ©e for the next week. Charlotte’s up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock.

And pretty soon all this playing pretend in public leads to no pretending whatsoever in the bedroom, because she just can’t fake the kind of toe-curling, window-shattering orgasmic cries she makes as I take her to new heights between the sheets.

But I can’t seem to fake that I might be feeling something real for her.

What the fuck have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?

BIG ROCK is a standalone, dirty romance novel written from the guy’s POV by NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

AVAILABLE: January 6, 2016

Spencer Holiday has it all: looks, brains, his own money, and a big... "rock".  He made his money by creating and selling a dating app that doesn't allow its male members to send pictures of their personal "members"... He is the ultimate playboy with a new woman whenever he wants one.  But when he tries to "help" his father impress a potential (conservative) buyer for the family business, Spencer says that he has left his playboy ways behind and recently got engaged to his best (girl) friend, Charlotte.  

Only problem is that he needs to convince Charlotte to play along...

Luckily for Spencer, Charlotte has an annoying ex trying to win her back, so she agrees to play his loving fiancee and have a public breakup after the Spencer's dad business is done and long enough to convince Charlotte's ex to leave her alone.  Win-win.

But neither expected that playing a couple in love could (or would) lead to something more.

Now, don't let me review "score" fool you.  I really enjoyed this book and it's characters.  I just wish there was something MORE.  To go from strictly platonic friends (with no hidden attraction/feelings from either party) to being madly in love (in a few days) just didn't feel right for me, especially with a super playboy like Spencer Holiday.  Other than that, I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone.

Big Rock is a short, sweet friends-to-lovers story.  Lauren Blakely is still a must buy for me.  I can't wait for the conclusion to her Sinful Nights series.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
