Big Rock (Lauren Blakely)


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 as%*$le. 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 hell 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…

Hey guys! As you can see by my rating, I freaking loved this book. It was perfect, absolutely, 100% perfect. So instead of doing a “normal” review, I’m gonna give you 10 reasons why this book ROCKED *wink wink*.

1. That Title!

Show hands if you read “c*ck” instead of “rock” 95% of the times… yeah, that’s what I thought! How clever is that?! It’s a bit crude, but hilarious and it goes so well with the rest of the book.

2. Male POV

It’s not secret by now that I LOVE male POVs and the fact that this book is told only through the male POV was a huge bonus for me. To make it even better, Spencer is a cocky, fun and amazing guy. I approve!

3. BFFs to Lovers Romance

I’m a huge fan of this trope and here it’s done perfectly!

4. And a “Fake” Relationship

Another trope that I love if done right, and it is, oh it so is. Being best friends for years, Spencer and Charlotte already have amazing chemistry, but with the fake relationship and practice in the mix… wow!

5. Awesome Cat

Fido is not exactly like Clive from Wallbanger, but he’s hilarious! With a bit of voyeuristic tendencies…


6. Amazing Family

This book did something amazing and unusual: it has a perfectly normal and happy family… despite the fact that they’re super loaded! The parents support the kids and love each other deeply. The kids are great, each doing their own thing. No weird expectations or anything. They are all close and loving.

7. Great Protagonists

Spencer Holiday is AMAZEBALLS! Yes, he’s a cocky guy, but he’s a gentleman. He treats people right. He works hard. He made his own money!!! And he’s funny and he’s not afraid of his own feelings! Charlotte is as awesome :D.

8. Hot and Sweet Romance

Spencer and Charlotte are such a great couple. And they are hotter than hot when they’re together. But most of all, they are great as friends, which makes their sentiments towards each other that much deeper and sweet.


9. The fallout… wow… it’s something!

It was surprising allright…

10. It will make you swoon! Like crazy! But it’s hilarious like hell!!

If the 9 reasons above haven’t convinced you to pick up this book yet, I hope this one will. This book is the perfect blend of hot and sweet, fun and emotional, and it’s just such a great read!
