➦This was my first book by these two authors and I rather enjoyed it! There's an enemies to lovers trope here, where two main characters have a rivalry going in their professional lives. Two realtors working for two different companies trying their best to outdo each other.

➦Mr. Big Shot, aka Wes, owns a company with his best friend. Wes is the best in the business and he straight up refuses to hire Natalie, his best friend's sister, when she asks to work for them. Cuz he has reasons.

All I needed to hear was that Big Shot was a friends-younger-sister romance and I had it on my Kindle that very night. I'm so happy I decided to pick up this book because I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Wes and Natalie.

This was a really fun read and I loved seeing Natalie and Wes battle it out in the sexiest ways possible. There really wasn't too much drama involved in their relationship which I really appreciated and I liked that these authors kept this a

The writing is great. The story and flow were excellent. The true winner for me, though is the heroine. I enjoyed both main characters, but Natalie really stole the show. She’s sassy, driven, focused, unashamed, and just an all-around great female character. She’s not afraid to take a challenge head on and succeed at what she puts her mind too. I can relate to her and not surprisingly, loved her immensel

"I honestly thought this was going to be a hard, fast fuck," he rasped into her ear as he flexed his hips tight against her ass, completely fusing them together. "And maybe we'll work up to that, but right now, I want to feel everything."

Wes and Connor are best friends and brokers. Natalie is Connor's sister. She is off limits, reserved for fantasies. Despite having known one another forever, the air sizzling with sexual tension, neither have crossed the line and simply flirt. Except, Natalie's a broker too, and refused entry into Connors workplace on Wes' recommendation because mixing family and business isn't smart. The secret reason? Wes fears friendship suicide if he messes with Connor's sister. Continuously, Natalie steals ...more

Wes & Natalie

I Love a, my brothers best friend kind of romance! So when I heard that’s what this was I was all kind of YAY, happy feels!
Natalie wasn't the moony eyed sister like a lot of books portray with this kind of trope. She was self-sufficient and was making her way in the world without the help of her brother or his friend.

But she sure gets noticed for her work, I loved the banter back and for the between Wes and Natalie because they were fighting there attraction t

More sex than story, but the story is good. She is his best friends sister. They make a bet, end up having lots of hot sex and then fall in love. HEA ensues. Cute love story.
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Slick's review:

Big Shot is the latest book from the writing duo of Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde and it is fun, flirty, and oh so very, very sexy. A best friend’s little sister story in which the little sister and the best friend are a tad competitive, a bit adversarial, and sporting a good dose of sexual tension made Big Shot a joy to read.

Wes Sinclair along with several of his good friends has worked hard to put their business, Premier Realty, on the map and for six years they’ve had a great
**2.5 stars**

I'm not a fan of the "best friend's little sister" trope, mostly because of the way a lot of authors handle it. As if the heroine is a virgin living in the 19th century or a nunnery, where her brother has to protect her "honor".

This is how this author tackled it here. Even though Wes and Natalie had the hots for each other FOR YEARS, Wes refused to do anything because of what Connor (Natalie's brother) would say. "He's so protective of Natalie" etc. etc.

ANNOUNCEMENT: This writing duo is now on auto-buy for me!

When I first read this author duo last year, it was hit or miss for me. I loved their work separately, but something just didn't click with them together. Well they have grown ten fold in just the last year! Big Shot was ridiculously good! You are going to feel Wes Sinclair down to your bones and probably your panties ;) I know I did! He is a dirty-talking, cocky and arrogant alpha. What he wants, he gets. And he wants Natalie Prescott!

Very disappointing!

After reading the preview for Big Shot, I was certain I was going to love the book. Plus it had such great reviews. Sadly, I was very disappointed. For me, the book was slow and boring. Same old, same old. Hot H who is a man----e, only does casual sex and never plans to settle down. Then the h who although has had bad luck in the love department, still believes in lasting commitments. Typical HEA! But the biggest problem for me, in all books, is "inner dialogue." This book was

Well, this was rather a fun, entertaining, quick read. Perfect for the end of a long week at work.

Wes and Natalie’s brother Connor were best friends. The three have known each other since childhood. Wes is a heart-breaker, bad boy and he was supposed to stay away from his best friend’s sister. She is off limits. Wes was doing a great job at staying away -- he refuses to hire Natalie to work at his Premier Realty. His reason is to not mix business with family … or is it?

This was my first book to Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. It's the story of big shot Wes Sinclair and his nemesis Natalie Prescott.

The cold war between the two adversaries started the day Wes refused to hire Natalie in Premier Reality, the firm he created with his three best friends Connor, Max and Kyle. Working for his opponent and stealing his deals was Natalie's way at getting revenge and showing the cocky Wes that he no longer rule the field.

This is my first 5 star read of 2017. And, I am not even a little surprised that it is from the writing duo of Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. They have this writing thing more than figured out, and at this point, I will one click their books before there is even a blurb. I just don't care what it is about, I am going to like it.

So, frenemies to lovers. Frenemies, you ask? Yeah, frenemies. They grew up together, him being her older brother's best friend, but their relationship has turned competitive since they are both in real estate and they are attracted to each other but don't feel that they can do anything about it.

And that is what sets up the story between Wes and Natalie. A bet lands them even more pitted against each other and when one of them loses, things heat up even more. Feelings get involved and when their

It was nice and really hot. A bit disappointed by the end that was rushed but still a nice read.

Sexy and sassy frenemies to lovers/brother's best friend quick, easy read. Wes and Natalie had some great chemistry. I really liked that there wasn't much drama when it finally came down to the "will they or won't they" end up together.

This book started a little slow for me because I wasn't really feeling the antagonism between Wes and Natalie. In some instances they can be hot while in some, like in this plot, it just didn't work well for me. I can't describe well what was lacking in this plot line only that it didn't have enough "teeth" to leave a very good impression especially since this was Phillips/Wilde collab. I guess that also added to the higher-than-usual expectations.

But with all that being said, this was still a
