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…

Maria’s Review

3.5 stars, methinkes

➦Two best friends fall in love while “faking an engagement.” This plot is nothing I haven’t seen before. It was an enjoyable but rather predictable read, nothing wrong with that. 🙂

➦Faking an engagement so that your family can sell their business to some sexist asshole – I didn’t really get it. (And yes, yes, I know it’s fiction… but my stupid brain just couldn’t get past this lol!) Which century do we live in? Money is money, I’m sure going to such extremes to sell a very successful business wasn’t necessary. And the fact that the hero was ashamed of who he was seemed a bit pathetic. (even though I found absolutely nothing wrong with how he made his living)

➦What made the book kind of unique and enjoyable was the male POV. And I big big fan of Lauren Blakely’s male POV romcoms 🙂 The writing style is entertaining and Lauren definitely knows how to write hot sex scenes. The anticipation was hot, I really loved that part.

➦The ending was a big cuteness overload. It was a bit like reading a fairy tale where everyone got what they wanted. And I hate them all! lol
