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.

Oh My Goodness **melts with pure delight!**
That was sooooooooo sweet.
That was pure, delectable, sugary goodness for my bookish soul. It was such a pleasureful read, it made me fall in love with Lauren Blakely all over again.

My word. Spencer is... he's as sweet, and as sexy, and as perfect as can be. I feel like someone's breathed life into me as a reader. Big Rock was refreshing and did nothing but make me smile, and giggle, and FALL in LOVE with reading and this sweet "friends to lovers" sto

Fun, flirty, flaming hot, and fabulous, Big Rock lights you up with laughter and heats you from head to toe, touching your heart along the way. Big Rock is seductive, sinful, sexy, and one super amazing package. You’ll devour Lauren Blakely’s latest sensation, Big Rock, with a voracious hunger---taking all of it in---as it’s that delicious and decadent. Big Rock is simply the perfect fit for the lover of…romantic comedies and steamy stories.

Typically, I’m not a fan of single point-of-view (POV)

She's done it yet again. Big Rock, a witty, funny and yes, sexy story. How is it possible for Lauren to have you loving yet another one of her men. Yes, Spencer, you will fall in love with him. Starting with the prologue. All things BIG right? It turns out though that it's not all about that. This story is about true friendship. A friendship which will test Spencer and Charlotte, a friendship almost broken apart by a game of pretend. But to what cost? I couldn't put it down. I was laughing out l ...more

When Spencer Holiday propositions his best friend, Charlotte to be his fake fiancée for a week in order to help his dad seal a business deal, he thinks the most difficult part is going to be living without sex for the duration. He’s not prepared for the reaction Charlotte has to him, or—in turn—the reaction he has to her unexpected behavior. When Charlotte makes a proposition of her own, everything fake starts feeling a little too real. The line between friends and lovers is sometimes thin, but ...more

Hands down, this is my favorite, and Lauren’s BEST, book to date! I absolutely LOVE Spencer and Charlotte together! This book is going at the tippy top of my Best of 2016 list - and it’s only January! I lost track of the number of times this book made me laugh out loud. The comedy throughout this book is spot on and so smart! No dirty jokes for the sake of a dirty joke here folks… every line is meant to move the story forward and gives us

This book ...

This book is funny. It's sexy. It's light. It's feel good & it's super entertaining! If you love romantic comedy/friends to lovers story told from male POV, you should definitely give 'Big Rock' a go because Lauren Blakely did such fantastic job creating what has now become one of my favorite couples - Charlotte and Spencer! The chemistry, the banter ... when I wasn't laughing, I was grinning at my Kindle like a loon. And then there were parts when I wasn't laughing OR grinning but

If you haven't heard of Big Rock yet, hurry up and buy it. The cover is Hot Hot Hot especially with Spencer on the front showing off that big ass ROCK and delicious body. I read the prologue and instantly fell in love before knowing anything else about Ms. Blakely's newest release. The prologue will have you drooling and giggling like a school girl, wait, Spencer will do that to you constantly throughout Big Rock. Spencer is a typical manwhore, banging different chicks every night and loving the ...more

“…bigger is better. It’s more fun. Ask any woman who’s ever had to utter the dreaded words, “Is it in yet?”

“Big Rock” was a sweet, fun and sexy read and if you enjoy male POVs this might work for you. While the premise wasn’t anything new, the execution was quite delightful and entertaining. A friends to lovers story, “Big Rock” fallows Spencer, a manwhore extraordinaire who is known for his “talents” and also for his father’s business.

A sweet,sexy story...yes,it's predictable but sometimes that's just what I need.I really enjoyed it and the fact Spencer is sexy as hell doesn't hurt.

I've read a few really intense books lately and this was a refreshing change.I'm definitely not one for fluffy romance books and this kind of fits that category but I really, really enjoyed this!!....Mainly because Spencer is HOT!!....there will be a lot of my thoughts fantasies about him...

Best friends and business partners pretending to be an engaged couple? This may not end well. lol

It's my first time to read a book written by Lauren Blakely. I've heard so many great things about her books and seeing most of my friends on Goodreads enjoying them, I couldn't help myself but try one. And I did enjoy. Big Rock is a quick and hilarious book and it's a perfect combination of sweet and sexy.

The narration actually reminds me of Emma Chase's Tangled-- It's all

I can pretty much sum up my review in five words. I. Effing. Loved. This. Book. I wasn’t sure I would like it because I’m not into covers with mostly naked men—shocking, I know. I always feel like they’re overcompensating for a small…plot. And really the basis of the story isn’t anything deep or even original. Best friends pretend to be a couple, but eventually they cross the line between pretending and genuinely feeling something more. The End. Right? Except not so much in this case.

Faking it led to making it.

Obviously, the cover of Big Rock is sexy, but the story is too. It's also extremely funny, cute, sweet and romantic. One thing I find interesting when I read friends to lovers story is that one or both are scared of ruining their friendship if they take it to the next level. It's interesting because I think a deep friendship with your partner, should be the cornerstone of the relationship. My hubby is my best friend in the whole wide world. My Mum and Dad are best frie

First of all, I want you to stop and listen to me. This isn't a copycat male POV book where the hero is an asshole player. Spencer may come off as a player who only cares about the size of his…well, you know, but that's not who Spencer is. He's a good guy. He loves his family, his friends and his job more than anything. He doesn't have a sad backstory or daddy issues. He's just a normal guy who likes to have fun with women. A lot of women. But, when he's asked to calm his hormones, he jumps into ...more

A brief disclaimer: I floved this book and more specifically, Spencer! Most of this review is going to be about him and my love for his character. *cue blubbering and gushing* Ok, moving on...

There are several things you know you are going to get when you read a Lauren Blakely book: hot characters, steamy scenes, great writing, and a story you will love. Big Rock is all of that and more!

I had a very hard time getting into this book and I was bored to tears waiting for the actual story to begin. None of the characters could even remotely grab my attention. It was difficult for me to enjoy this one because I couldn’t connect to the characters, and couldn’t care less about them. This writing style didn't work for me.

There was so much happening that seemed irrelevant to the story. There were too many fillers that I found myself skimming through them. I think this
This was just too predictable and I never felt like anything was really at stake. Also, this book tried way too hard to be funny and just kept missing the mark. I truly should have DNFed after the opener, my god.

Trigger and Content Warnings: talk of cheating in the past and a lot of misogyny.

I'm so very not sorry that I had to read this filthy book! But, it was like a prerequisite for a college course. Really, it was. Because I'm reading the next smutty book in this series with half of goodreads starting tomorrow, so it was of the utmost importance that I had an understanding of this complex world and the characters.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Dammit, I knew I shouldn't have taken that test!

So, this is a friends-to-lovers story with the hero of the story being a dick. No,

This is was just really fun to read. I loved watching Spencer and Charlotte's friendship blossom into L-O-V-E. It was super cute. This book was flirty and sweet and hot! Lauren Blakely does a great job of making sure her characters have chemistry which is something I have to have in a romance.

“Okay. So we’ve got no anal, no sleepovers, no weirdness, no lying. We do this for a week, and we return to being friends.”

Sounds simple enough.

My favorite overused, done to death trope when it comes to books of the romance variety is the friends to lovers one. I absolutely love it! I can’t get enough. It doesn’t matter if there’s an unrepentant manwhore involved and he’s just doing his bestie a solid by relieving her of her pesky virginity. Or a troubled gal who’s bee

The first three lines of the book had me already laughing so hard.

But don’t just take my word for it. Consider all his accomplishments.”

Spencer and Charlotte have been business partners for years and had never been more that best friends until now when they decide to play a dangerous game.

First of all, kudos to the author (or publisher) for the eye-catching cover/title/graphics. Seriously, would you give this book a second glance if just a diamond ring was on the cover?

This was a cute friends-to-lovers story that I kept imagining as a Hollywood RomCom movie, or at least a Lifetime/Hallmark one.:)

Liked the cover, the blurb and the sound of this m/f male-flick romcom. Loved and praised by many romance readers. I just wished it should "rock me"... — And oh yeah, it did.

The man who is interested in his business though is a family man and won't be impressed by Spencer, who is a notorious ladies man. That's how he lies that he's now engaged to his best friend, Charlotte.

Charlotte is on board with the plan, although she's not good at lying and she's afraid that his sham will be revealed. She's also quite handsy as his fake fian
