What do you do when you’re being sued by a sexy, professional football player?

Whatever the jerk asks.


Calder Castleman nailed the top three spots on my Never Not EVER dating list.

Arrogant
 Pro athlete
 PLAYER

Which means he's a triple threat of thou-shalt-not.

His cocky attitude had me immediately putting him on ignore, but Never Not EVER list be damned, those mischievous

Harper Bentley delivers a hilarious, sweet touchdown with The BFD (A Big Deal Romantic Comedy Book 1). Calder and Rori are both strong-willed and opinionated, and their chemistry is undeniable. The banter back and forth between these two is refreshing, smart, and laugh out loud funny.

You can always count on Harper to bring you characters you fall in love with, and I’m excited to see what she has in store for us in the next installment of this series.

The BFD by Harper Bentley is a funny romantic book. The characters are fun and well written. This was an incredibly fast read for me. I enjoyed the back and forth between the characters. Once I really started reading this book I literally couldn’t stop reading it and stayed up until I had finished. I deem this book crack. I wasn’t sure that I was going to like Calder with his cocky attitude but he kind of grew on me. I thought his methods were pretty genius at getting Rori to go out with him. An ...more

Ok there's funny and then there's laugh-loud-enough-to-get-weird-looks, fall out of your chair funny! I super enjoyed The BFD by Harper Bentley. This author is new to me but I will definitely seek out her books in the future!

Now this is definitely not the first dual point of view book I've read. But especially at the start and the end, the way they tell the story is unique and amusing! Oh and there's a happily ever after.

Calder is a football player and a PLAYER off the field. But this is definit

Where can I get a BFD of my very own?

Harper Bentley has proven once again why she is one of my automatic one-click authors! The BFD was a great read that I absolutely could not put down. Calder and Rori were such a fun, sexy couple. I caught myself laughing out loud several time and the only thing I didn't like about this book was that it had to end. I highly recommend The BFD to anyone who wants a fun rom-com.

The BFD is a hilarious tongue-in-cheek romance about Calder Castleman, Star QB and known to his fans as The BFD, and the woman he’s ‘suing’ for defamation, Rori Flannigan. Calder and Rori are telling the story straight to the reader and it’s a fresh take on romance! I really enjoyed this one!

The BFD is my first read from author Harper Bentley and after reading this incredibly brilliant book I cannot wait to see what other great stories I can read from this author. It was everything and more! I was completely drawn in by the synopsis and it didn’t disappoint and can we just appreciate the cover of the book, totally captures our character to a T!

The BFD (A Big Deal Romantic Comedy Book 1) is a very sweet romantic comedy novella written by Harper Bentley.

His name is Calder Castleman, although his friends call him Castle, and the fans call him The BFD which stands for The Big F***ing Deal. Calder is 27 years old, very handsome, and a player, who enjoys sleeping with women who look like Blake Lively and the f ...more

OK, I want to reach out at throat punch the hero, Calder Castleman. The man-whore jerk made me cry on the heroine Rori Flannigan’s account. What a freaking BUTT HOLE!!
Yes, I know this is a fictional book… but when Calder called Rori after practice and said to her what he said. D24N, I wanted to kick him!! STOP, no spoilers, sorry.
Sorry, I digress, this is supposed to be a review of The BFD, and it is, honestly.

The story The BFD (A Big Deal Romantic Comedy Book 1) by Harper Bentley is a wonderful story that I loved reading. It had me smiling and laughing out loud. It is a story that shows that an attraction to someone can come at any time to anyone. It also shows that you can judge someone before you know them and then find that they are a bit different than what you thought. I love the characters of Calder Castleman and Rori

The BFD (A Big Deal Romantic Comedy Book 1) by Harper Bentley is a romantic comedy that will keep you engaged until the end. This is my first story by this author and I loved it! Her creative writing style and attention to details keep the story flowing until the end. She will pull you in from the first word until the very last.

If you are looking for a book that’s sweet, funny and has characters with awesome chemistry then this is the book for you.

Calder is a highly successful football player and women have never been a problem to seduce until he meets Rori and changes his life plan. And if there is one thing that he hates it’s changing his plans.

Rori isn’t exactly Calder’s biggest fan, after taking a flower order for two different women she concludes that he is a manwhore like all the tabloids say. Due to a genuine

Book Review: The BFD
Author: Harper Bentley
FIVE STARS
This romantic comedy written by Harper Bentley is a must read, laugh out loud funny story.
This book is written from a first person point of view but to make it even more unique it is from BOTH points of view. It is almost like they are being interviewed or are actually telling you the story themselves while you all are catching up on years of being apart. Sitting over dinner or staying up late just catching up and learning how they met. I have

A Touchdown!

A hilarious romantic comedy that will make you laugh at every turn! Rori and Calder's story is a very fun read. Very little drama with a firey red head that will keep you on your toes. I definitely recommend this one! And I have never wanted a cinnamon roll so badly in my life.

The BFD is book 1 in The A Big Deal romanitic comedy series by Harper Bentley. I had an awesome time reading this story. We meet Rori and Calder in this story. Once I picked up this book I was not able to put it down. It had me laughing from beginning to end. I love how the author wrote the book where it was as if the characters were really talking to us. The characters were such likeable characters. Yes Calder was arrogant but that just added to his charm. Rori was such a breath of fresh air wh ...more

The BFD: A Big Beal Romantic Comedy by Harper Bentley. This story had me laughing so hard. Rori and Calder are hilarious together. From the beginning Harper Bentley gets you drawn into the story by telling you from Calders point of view what went down. To bad Rori's point of view is even funnier especially when you add in her best friend/business partner and her sister. Those two are such instigators and that’s what gives Calder the ammo he needs to go after Rori. Not to mention she may or may n ...more

The BFD by author Harper Bentley was a quick, funny and sweet read. Told in dual POV of Calder and Rori.
Calder is a professional football player. The fans call him The BFD, The Big F'n Deal. When he calls the local flower shop he uses to place an order for 2 different women, he is in for a wild ride when the orders get switched. What he doesn't expect is Rori, she's liable to ruin his 5 year plan.
Rori is the youngest in her family and the only girl after 4 boy

First all, this book isn't written like other books I have read. It's different, in all the best ways.

For starters, it is written like as if your friends are sitting down with you and recounting how they met and fell in love. That was the best part for me.

I'm used to reading books where they slowly bring you into their world. So that brings me to my next point...

This books pulls you in from the beginning and doesn't let you go. It is a fast read, but a good one. It doesn't drag on with unnecessa

The BFD is the first book in A Big Deal Romantic Comedy Series by Harper Bentley.
Calder Castleman is a professional football play, a smooth operator on and off the field. He has a formidable reputation as a top player, earning him player of the year for two years in a row- but his ‘high-scoring player’ reputation follows him off field as well. He is known as The BFD (Big F***ing Deal) and he enjoys the attention this brings him, especially from the ladies. He has a five-year plan, in whi

The BFD is the first book that I have read by author Harper Bentley but it will not be my last, that I can guarantee. This is the story of Calder Castleman and he is a “Big F*@!%$* Deal” just ask him and he’ll tell you!! It’s also the story of what happens when the BFD meets a woman, Rori Flannigan, who wants NOTHING to do with him. It all starts innocently enough, Calder orders flowers for two different hook-ups, Rori takes the order and proceeds to teach the BFD a lesson he will never forget.
