Synopsis from Goodreads:
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 c*&k.
You might think I’m an a*&hole. 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 fiancée 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…
Big Rock is a fun read. If you’re looking for something silly and sexy, this is a perfect book. I read it in one evening because it was funny and easy going. I perfectly knew what will happen, but it was still fun.
It’s a story of super hot Spencer and his best friend Charlotte. For some really silly reason, they end up pretending to be engaged for a week (though this week seemed really long, I’m pretty sure there were some extra days in this week…). Of course, they are just friends, it won’t be anything more than just friends. Easy, what could go wrong, right? Well, they engagement becomes more and more real, especially after they introduced a late night, sexy, no audience performance to it.
It was a funny book, the characters are likeable. Even the main character who seems so cocky from the introduction:
I have ALL the right assets. Looks, brains, my own money, and a big cock.
So you know, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But Spencer was a great guy, and quite funny. There weren’t any cringy moments. The sex scenes were hot. Great romance book, just a bit too predictable. And the last minute obstacle the couple has to overcome to be together was introduced just a few pages before the end, and it felt forced, like oh now, it’s almost the end, I have to add some trouble into the mix, even though we all know how it will end, and it’s all actually completely unnecessary.
