A sexy, scorching enemies-to-lovers romance!!
There are three words most men can’t resist—I dare you.
So as you can see, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I had no choice when my buddies said “I bet you can’t get that brunette beauty to kiss you before the night ends.”
I proved them wrong, and oh how good it felt to be right when I swept the witty, quick-tongued woman into my arms and kissed the breath out of her at the party.
But, I made a slight miscalculation.
Turns out she’s my brand new enemy.
And soon I’m locked in a fierce battle of wits with my sexy-as-sin nemesis. I’m determined to show the whole city that my company is offering the best new path to romance, and she’s dead-set on knocking me down. Publicly.
It’s the hottest game of one-upmanship I’ve ever played, punctuated by fiery kisses, dirty letters, and, after a heated argument, hate s-e-x.
You know what they say. Keep your enemies closer.
I keep her so damn close to my favorite body part.
Everything is fun and games…until I gamble something I can’t afford to lose.
My heart.

I've been trying to like this but to speak plainly I'm bored.
The promise of the enemies to lovers isn't met in my opinion, Easton and Bellamy are acquaintances dancing around each other at best.
The banter feels reharsed despite the witty retorts from both sides—or is it because of it?
I kept on reading this far hoping for something to spark, say, chemistry between the MCs, but no luck. I'm out.

Lauren Blakely dives into the world of Real Life dating (as opposed to online) with this whip-smart, fun and sexy romance.

The once king of online dating Easton Ford, isn’t looking for love but he’s not opposed to kissing a beautiful woman on a dare. The only problem is that when his friends pick a Daisy Buchanan lookalike to compliment his Jay Gatsby costume at a masquerade party, the woman behind the mask turns out to be his match.

After the best kiss of his life, she leaves without a trace, until she crashes one of his very coveted underground dating events. And although sparks fly between the two no matter if they’re in person or communicating via correspondence, they realize they’re not exactly on the same page regarding dating and romance.

I had only read the first book in this series but now I need to go back and binge on it. There were so many elements to love about this read, I even made a list:
- I adored the love letters. They were witty and flirty and the way the greeted each other and signed off was so fun.
- The banter and steam between Easton and Bellamy was off the charts.
- It was totally feel good since it was a romance about finding romance. It’s recursive in the best way!
- Easton’s sex positive grandmother was a hoot.
- I loved the side characters who I can’t wait to meet!!

Come Again is a delectable escape and Lauren Blakely never fails to provide heady, sexy and playful romance.

Come Again is book #7 of the Big Rock series by author Lauren Blakely. This can be perfectly read as a standalone. It is told mainly from the hero’s point of view with a happy ending. Genre: contemporary romance. Tropes: frenemies to lovers

Hands down, my favorite LB heroine! B kicks ass and takes names and I want to be her bestie forever. Come Again will suck you in with amazing banter and secondary characters will steal your heart. Being back in the Big Rock world again was awesome and my pants have definitely been charmed off by our hero, E!

The chemistry. The banter. The spice. The love. It is all top notch! I couldn’t get enough of Easton and Bellamy!

Easton is a charmer. He is successful and competitive. He runs an exclusive matchmaking business. Bellamy is smart, confident and runs a successful romance podcast. She forms an interest in Easton and his business. The two of them both have careers that revolve around romance, yet they have significantly different views about it.

The chemistry between Easton and Bellamy. It is instant from the moment they meet and continues to sizzle below the surface until there is no denying the connection they have. I loved the back and forth between the two of them from the start. Their e-mail conversations are absolutely hilarious. They may not agree on things, but I love that there is also somewhat of a mutual understanding between them.

It was amazing to return the Big Rock world and see many familiar faces and places, but also get introduced to new characters. Even though it is book 7 in a series, it can easily be read as a standalone!

If you’re looking for an enemies to lovers romance this is one to read!

Come Again by Lauren Blakely was a hot, bold, and sexy romance with all the swanky Gatsby vibes! I was thrilled to dive back into Lauren's Big Rock world. Plus, I devoured this audio in one sitting because I simply could not get enough of Easton and Bellamy's enticing enemies to lovers romance!

This audio is narrated by the unicorn himself, Sebastian York with a special appearance by Vanessa Edwin. Sebastian York does an epic job of exuding all of Easton's confident cocky arrogance in his performance that is so hard to resist, considering Easton doesn't believe in love or online dating. In fact, he has built an entire business with luxurious parties around that very concept. He meets his match with Bellamy who his pure opposite. Vanessa Edwin's performance of Bellamy is daring, sassy, and fierce! I love a lady who knows what she wants and asks for it! Bellamy and Easton's chemistry is sizzling HOT!

I loved my trip back into Lauren's Big Rock world. If you love an enemies to lovers romance with a sexy dominant man, a confident desirable female, tons of steamy time (oh yeah!), a cheeky flirty grandmother, advice giving best buds, a romance podcast, a bet that turns into so much more, and of course a deliciously satisfying HEA that will leave you fanning yourself, then you will adore this book! I always love LB's audios, and this one was worth all the stars!

While I loved this book, and while Lauren Blakely is one of my favorite romance authors, Come Again is probably my least favorite out of all of Blakely's books that I've read so far. The romance between Easton and Bellamy just didn't blow me away nearly as much as the romance and chemistry between the couples in the other books by Blakely that I've read so far. I would still recommend Come Again to other people, though.

My Rating / Score: 4 out of 5 Stars on Goodreads' rating system. 8 out of 10 on my own scoring system.

4.5🌟

There is nothing like a heroine that you connect with in certain ways, and I did with Bellamy. She has so many beautiful qualities, she’s ruthlessly honest, she’s brave and ferocious, she knows what she wants and she also knows her own worth. She has an intense drive, but what I resonated the most with…she loves chocolate and she loves love. That’s me, to a T. It’s why I read romance novels. I too want that neon-billboard-in-Times-Square-kind of love, I believe I have it, but I also love to read others that search for it too. That feeling is pure joy but only if it’s reciprocated.

Bellamy finds her match in Easton, they are worthy adversaries, opponents and even competitors. They have chemistry in spades but Easton has loved before and been hurt. It’s not a place he wants to revisit. This is where they have an “understanding”, a deal of meeting up and having fun with loads of O’s.

Communication is key for these two, and when Bellamy in her most honest way, tells Easton of her feelings..well let’s just say it didn’t go the way it should have. And it will take more than a box of chocolates to fix this blunder. He makes such a mess, it’s not only Bellamy that starts his epic grovel tour, he needs to apologize to a few. How many chances can a person have before he finally gets it right? Maybe third times a charm for Easton, because he now knows that he needs to treasure love and not be afraid of it. What I always appreciate with this author, is she is gender equal. Easton might have some grand gestures to win Bellamy back, but it’s not just the men asking for their significant other to be his, it is likewise as romantic coming from the gals. And talking of grand gestures, I totally endorse the epilogue. 😍🥰😍

I will say this one started out slow for me, but once I was hooked, I was compelled to know more. I knew there was going to be a dilemma, and then a resolution but it was heart wrenching at times. You’ll not only find a brilliant couple in this tale, but the secondary characters are a hoot too. And some will get their own book down the line, another thing I favor as well.

https://www.emilythebooknerd.com/2022...

Lauren Blakely never disappoints. She is easily one of my favorite romance authors. Come Again had a cocky main hero and sassy heroine. Lauren writes them best. The spicy arguments and banter in this novel were nothing short of perfect. I was highly entertained until the very end of the novel.

I am pro Easton and Bellamy. They are two characters I absolutely fell in love with and loved their romance from start to finish. I was very entertained and pleased by Come Again. I love anything enemies to lovers and this book does the trope best! Not surprised this is another highly rated book from Lauren that I have read so far.

I will read anything Lauren Blakely publishes.

Come Again by Lauren Blakely
Narrated by Sebastian York with a little of Vanessa Edwin
affiliate links

I listened to Come Again by Lauren Blakely when it was first released as part of the Big Rock Series. It was during the holidays and I apparently forgot to review it. Then I saw Come Again as Book 1 in the Happy Endings series. Thinking it was a different book, I grabbed it and started listening. I rarely listen to a book twice, but I have to tell you, I enjoyed Come Again just as much the second time around.



The Big Rock Series is all told from the male POV with creative ways of getting the female perspective. I fell in love with Lauren Blakely and Sebastian York because of the Big Rock Series, so I was so freaking excited for more! Come Again stands perfectly on its own, it just has that amazing Bog Rock style that I fell in love with.
“I’m a purveyor of pleasure - the goddamn mayor of good times, the lord of lust, the emperor of ecstasy.”

Easton is cocky and rich and runs a company that arranges exclusive singles parties. Bellamy runs a romance podcast. They don’t see eye-to-eye on love or dating. Though these two weren’t really enemies, they were rivals in some ways.

My favorite thing in almost any romance is e-mails/texts. There were a bunch of flirty e-mails between the couple (her letters are the only female POV), and I totally loved the online flirting. Once again, I never go wrong with a Lauren Blakely book.

Likes:
•Easton’s grandmother stole the show, and I swear I’d read her book in a second.
•Great side characters.
•The banter! Lauren is the best at sexy, flirty banter.
•The letters between the two of them are what made the book for me.
•As always, Lauren writes HOT sex!
•It was just as good the second time.

Dislikes:
•I can’t put my finger on it, but something just didn’t stand out as much as Lauren’s books normally do. I think maybe I didn’t love Easton as much as usual? Or maybe Bellamy? I’m not sure, but something is holding me back from screaming about how I was completely in love with this book.

The Narration:
Sebastian York is always amazing at the cocky male POV books and I love the way Lauren weaves in the female pop in creative ways with Vanessa Edwin.

The Down & Dirty:
Whether Come Again by Lauren Blakely is part of the Big Rock Series or the start of the Happy Endings Series, it’s still hot, sexy, smart, emotional Lauren Blakely fun. I love how even her cockiest heroes are knocked down a peg by an equally strong and successful woman. While this may not be up there with my favorite Lauren Blakely books, I still really enjoyed it both times I listened and recommend it wholeheartedly.

Rating: 4 Stars, 4.25 Heat, 5 Narration

Easton's just met his match. Too bad he and Bellamy don't see eye to eye when it comes to love, romance and dating. Too bad her podcast has signficantly different ideas about all things love than his matchmaking service. But can the two of them come together with an understanding? Perhaps their hearts will lead the way...



I have been reading and loving Lauren's romances for years now and have been entertained by every single one. Have fallen for her heroes, and have rooted on and been inspired by her heroines. But Bellamy and Easton, dare I say it, just may be my favorite couple of hers. There's something so damn charming about this cocky matchmaker that I couldn't help but roll my eyes and love him when he was bantering with Bellamy, deliberately digging under her skin, and laughing when Bellamy dug right back and took him to his knees when he fell for her with much less grace than he normally showed. Bellamy is definitely my girl crush with her bold, confident sass and tender heart who's all about the romance in her podcast. I loved being back in the Big Rock world, loved when Easton set about groveling like only the very best heroes do, and swooned when the two of them finally got on the same page. I think I just may go back and read every single story in this series now, and will keep Bellamy and Easton in my head as my new number one LB couple!

Come Again is such a fun, witty, super sexy, enemies to lovers Romance. Well…. maybe adversaries is a better word to describe this scorching hot book than enemies. The story of Easton and Bellamy is a beautifully and wonderfully written story of two single people that both have very strong opinions on the best way single people can meet each other and find love. Bellamy, who hosts her own podcast about all things dating online, believes online is the way to meet new people. Easton on the other hand, believes in the good old fashioned meeting each other face to face dating so you can feel that instant chemistry. He owns a business that hosts “upscale” dating (invitation only) parties where he also is the one choosing who can come to these coveted events. Both Easton and Bellamy completely disagree with each other’s opinions on the best way for singles to meet and find love. Those two have the most sizzling and immediate chemistry when they first meet at a masquerade party. Man was Bellamy snarky in the best way possible, I really enjoyed her character! She was her own woman and knew what she wanted, not taking you know what from anyone. The way they both are so obviously into each other, but also really ribbing each other every chance they got. There is a delicious underlying tension between them. Their HOT, fun, and wicked banter throughout this book was my absolute favorite! Also, can you say H O T hate sex?! Yes please!!
Sebastian York does such an outstanding job with his narration! It’s told mostly by the Male POV, but the wonderful Vanessa Edwin pops in here and there voicing Bellamy’s emails. Sebastian really embodies Easton’s super cocky, witty, fun, GROWLY alpha hero goodness that will most definitely send shivers down your spine, in such a delicious way. Love it!! Vanessa Edwin was priceless portraying Bellamy. I could really feel those ever changing emotions so well. From her SUPER SNARK, smooth as velvet ,sexy sultry, and to the sometimes vulnerable and hurt feelings to perfection! Overall, I really enjoyed this story of modern day dating, and how hard it is to find love.
BRAVO Lauren! Another winner! 💋

This is next-level Big Rock energy. Still fun, witty, sexy, but a bit more sophisticated and intriguing. But still the unfiltered male point of view with some creative input from the heroine throughout.

A night at the Lucky Spot bar turns a masquerade into more fun than expected. Two snarky, intelligent people sharing quips and bantering back and forth.

Easton Ford is a bit of an enigma. He is handsome, charming, successful, competitive, and focused on work. He thrives on being the leading matchmaker in New York with his Carpe Diem exclusive invitation-only parties.

Bellamy is confident, smart, resourceful, and bold. She has her own interest in the dating scene with her romance podcast. And she has her sights set on profiling Easton and his methods.

Just when he thinks he has missed his chance, a new opportunity presents itself. It's a cat and mouse with these two. The flirty, sarcastic banter, and one-upping each other. He likes to be in control, but she challenges him and gets under his skin. He is a bit of an enigma she wants to unravel.

They are worthy opponents that have strong opinions and conflicting ideas of how best to find love. And her public opinion is not always favorable regarding his exclusive parties. But they also have respect, appreciation, attraction, and witty rapport with a side of antagonism, competition, and frustration. The aggravation, picking, and teasing also ramp up the sexual tension. And eventually, things are bound to combust into bedroom buddies and orgasm sharers. But she wants to find forever love and he does not think that he will ever truly love again, so once again they are on opposite sides.

Bets, understandings, and challenging each other's beliefs occur while also partaking in definitely not-date datish-type meet-ups and new friends with bennies. But it is not supposed to be anything serious. But the lines might get just a bit hazy and blurred.

Can they find a way to see the other's side of things and meet more in the middle? And will Easton see that maybe a second chance at love could bring happiness and not just a chance for heartache?

This is an entertaining, snarky, hot, adversaries-to-lovers rom-com set in the Big Rock world. I loved all the different sides of Easton that unravel during the story. And even though he does not always get things right the first (or several times), I loved seeing him begin to try to figure things out. And Bellamy is just so smart, bold, and sassy. It brings back some old friends and some newer ones I am looking forward to hearing more about. I have a girl crush on Grandma Coco. I enjoyed hanging out more with Spencer, and getting to know TJ and Nolan even more.

Oh, this was one was a delight. It's Lauren Blakely at her steamiest, sexiest, most banter-y (I really don't think that's a word) best.

Easton and Bellamy have a heck of a meet cute (and I can't lie, it made me HAVE to know what happened next), and then they have another meeting and watching Easton try to figure out exactly why Bellamy was not immediately enamored with all that is him was, well, it was not only fun it was exactly what I wanted from this book and these characters.

Readers of romance read it for the characters and the emotion and this one had characters you love. Bellamy is one of my favorite Blakely heroines for not only how wonderful she is, but how strong and how willing she is to not only be honest but also to reflect on her actions when things happen that make her see events in a different way.

There is a lot here that's more than just the surface of a romance (when isn't there with one of Lauren Blakely's book?) but it's tied up into a romance that you can't help but enjoy. I enjoyed the touch of the reality we live in now, with the idea that we are more aware of things that we see but possibly still struggling to figure out how we are supposed to respond, I loved their connection, and I genuinely had a great time reading this one.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.

I was really looking forward to this new addition to the Big Rock series. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I found the story to be slow and did not feel much chemistry between the characters. I was bored and could not really get into the story.
Narration was a plus but this story just wasn't for me.

This book really surprised me! I was not a huge fan of the beginning but as the story progressed I realized the story had to start the way it did with kind of unlikeable characters so we could actually experience their growth. I really appreciated this since it often seems like romance writers prefer to tell us that the characters have grown and changed for the better and really deserve a second chance rather than show the actions the characters are taking to actually be better.

To start, I will say the summary of the book is kind of misleading. Easton and Bellamy aren’t ever really enemies, maybe more like frenemies, and they do have sort of angry sex but only once. I also wasn’t a huge fan of any of the characters in the beginning because everyone seemed like a character rather than a person. Easton and Bellamy were just really pretentious about everything. From their taste in books to their banter- it was a lot. Every side character (Nolan, TJ, and Coco in particular) also felt like they were there to be annoying side characters that allowed one trait to be their whole personality. This got much better over time! Everyone started to flesh out more after the first few chapters and they became characters in their own right that were genuinely helpful to the MC’s and fun to read about.

Of the two MC’s, Bellamy definitely grew on me first probably because we weren’t in her head all the time. She dropped her pretentiousness pretty quickly after the masquerade which makes me think she was playing it up at the party. Easton took a while for me to like because he thought he was just the greatest thing ever and that he knew what was best for everyone around him. He gets called out in this often by the people around him which I loved. He also had amazing character growth! The way he handled the mess he made at the end of book was great. He took responsibility for his actions and did some top-tier groveling to everyone he wronged. It was so good and is what bumped my rating up quite a bit.

P.S. This is kind of rambling and doesn’t really make a point but I wanted to include it anyways since I did think about it a lot while reading this book. Quite often people dislike the female MC in books saying she was dumb or naive or a doormat but then will adore the male MC and say how the girl doesn’t deserve him. This book really made me think about why that happens and I think it has to do with who the narrator is. The female MC is almost always the narrator (or at least one of them) in romance books. The readers really only sees her thoughts and feelings on things, and since we also know about the bigger picture of the plot, it causes us to not like the decisions she makes because “we would never do that.” Newsflash- you would and you probably have. This all became very clear to me while reading this book because the narrator was male and that same dislike happened. I did not like him for a long time because he kept making the wrong choices and it felt like he couldn’t get out of his own way.

5 SMOOCHES!

Heading back into the Big Rock world, Come Again by Lauren Blakely, is a full circle moment for me. My Blakely fandom all began with the first two book in that series, Big Rock and Mister O.  She captured my attention, my heart and a spot on my favorite authors list with them. Primarily told in the hero’s POV, Lauren Blakely has delivered some truly magical romantic comedies in this series. I love many things about her storytelling, but one of my favorite things is the authentic, genuine way she takes readers into the hearts and heads of her male leads.

Come Again was a scorching hot enemies/nemesis-to-lovers romance. Easton and Bellamy’s chemistry was explosive from the moment they met. Bellamy kept Easton on his toes—mainly by not falling at his feet—and the result was some seriously witty, rapid-fire bantering that cranked the heat all the way up between them. Easton owns a high-end professional matchmaking service with a twist, and Bellamy is a relationship podcaster who isn’t buying into his method. Their relationship begins on a dare that morphs into a bet before they end up locked in a battle of wills.

Easton is confidence and charm wrapped up in a devastatingly handsome package. He’s successful, he’s competitive, he’s driven and focused on his business. He’s also got some heart-wrenching baggage that he’s yet to unpack, and as a result, he may help others find love but he’s not exactly open to it for himself. Bellamy’s competitive streak and confidence rival Easton’s, but it’s her whip-smart, sassy personality that pushes his buttons. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to ask for it. Despite their intent to keep things light and breezy, real feelings develop and Easton has to decide if he’s willing to open his heart and take a chance on love.

Bellamy and Easton were a perfect addition to the Big Rock world, and I absolutely loved heading back there! Come Again was a spicy, saucy and entertaining adversaries-to-lovers romantic comedy, and I inhaled every second of it. Sebastian York was perfection in the role of Easton, and I loved Vanessa Edwin as Bellamy. Five smooches from me for Lauren Blakely’s Come Again!

Big Rock was my first Lauren Blakely book and I loved being back in that world. But if you haven’t read it, no worries you can easily jump right into Come Again and be wowed like I was. This book is low angst and big on feels as successful businessman Easton Ford meets his match with Bellamy, a romance podcaster looking for love. Even though he is in the romance business himself, running a matchmaking business for the elite, he is happy with being single, and not looking for a serious relationship.

Easton is the epitome of charm and class and is Mr. alpha enchanted behind closed doors. He possesses all of the sexual prowess you’d expect to find in a Blakely book. I loved their meet cute, how he made a sincere effort to get to know her, and all of their emails back and forth. Loved the banter and verbal sparing and how she didn’t back down or settle for less than she deserved. This book is not for the timid, as the author heats up the pages as our hero and heroine can’t keep their hands off of each other.

Bellamy was well educated on many topics, confident, self-assured, sassy, and entertained by Easton who was simply smitten with her. Loved how they respected each other’s careers and their difference of opinion, and embraced all of their best qualities. I loved their character growth and how they bought out the best in each other, and all of the appearances by the supporting characters, Spencer, TJ and Nolan, as well as his 80-year-old grandmother, Coco, who is who I want to be when I grow up!

Blakely writes romance like no other and keeps you engaged and wanting more page after page. I loved their honesty and ability to admit when they were wrong and fight for their relationship. Big romantic gesture at the end that will keep you smiling long after the book is finished.

Easton runs a matchmaking company based on real life meet-ups at parties. Bellamy, as part of her dating podcast, swears by digital apps for finding the perfect match. And that one difference is only the first of many things these two can find to banter about. When a dare puts Easton in front of Bellamy, the sparks fly between these two witty, intelligent main characters, leading to their own dare/bet/agreement.

Both are strongly opinionated about dating - Easton is only in it for fun, while Bellamy is looking for something serious. But they strike up an agreement that is mutually beneficial. Their opinions don’t only diverge when it comes to dating. Their chemistry sizzles from the beginning and only flares higher when they disagree.

This was entertaining, witty, and sexy. Returning to the Big Rock world was so much fun with favorite character cameos and memorable location revisits.

j'aime beaucoup ce que fait l'autrice et celui-ci ne m'a pas déçue, j'ai passé un très bon moment avec Bellamy et Easton, ils sont tous les deux touchants et attachants et on ne peut que craquer pour leur histoire. Les pages se tournent très rapidement, entre l'une qui veut trouver l'amour et l'autre qui n'y croit plus vraiment, les choses sont forcément électriques et j'ai aimé les voir se battre tous les deux pour ce qui compte pour eux. On sait d'où va venir le souci mais forcément, on dévore les pages pour savoir comment ils vont s'en sortir. Aucune grosse surprise dans l'intrigue mais des personnages géniaux qui nous font rire et couiner et vivre des moments pour le moins intenses. Le final est vraiment chouette et maintenant il ne me reste plus qu'à me pencher sur le reste de la saga que je n'ai pas lu....

This book brings up a great question, can you truly meet you’re person from a dating app or is the best way face to face? Which is the best way to meet someone?
The sparks are a flame with this book.

Easton and Bellamy seem to be on opposite ends of the coin.
I loved the back and forth the argument for both. I really missed this world and I am glad we are back in it.

I love that Bellamy holds her own she isn’t intimidated, but also that she truly hears what Easton says and how she takes his words to heart.
Easton takes a little more time to come around but that too is endearing because it means he wants it to work.

I swooned, I melted, and I want more.

Narration 10++ stars I have missed Sebastian’s voice it feels like it has been too long.

I love visiting the Big Rock World and Come Again is a perfect addition to this entertaining series.
This time it’s Easton and Bellamy who get to step up and tell us their tale. This couple have both been burnt in the past and they see relationships in very different ways but it seems to work for them.
Easton Ford runs matchmaking cocktail parties but not everyone gets an invite you have to be someone very special to attend so now does he get involved with Podcaster Bellamy Hart who has different views on finding true love, well you are going need to read the hook to find that out.
Come Again ticked all my boxes, I laughed at the witty banter, I swoon at the sizzling chemistry and I adored the storyline as well as the characters.

Lauren has come back strong with this continuation of the Big Rock series!!
loving all the word play and puns in this audio, so in that vein I will say: Lauren never does anything half COCKED, when she writes, she's all in!
I'm sending all the love and thanks in the audioverse world that she has brought SebYo back to this series. His voice as Easton is smoother than that Macallan scotch and I was buzzed on his naughty, sexy personality.

Love that there was some good Ole fashioned love letters featured in this book and that Vanessa Edwin voiced parts of Bellamy's role.

Do make sure to listen all the way to the end for bonus material!!

5 Star review of Come Again (Big Rock #7) by Lauren Blakely
Another entertaining read from Lauren Blakely, We are back in the Big Rock world and I for one am very happy. This time it is Easton and Bellamy who are in the spotlight.
Both have been burnt by past relationships and have different ideas on love and yet they work together. The build up of their relationship added an extra layer to my enjoyment of the story and it was fun to watch their relationship blossom.
The connection between them was evident and they challenged one another on a number of levels. The chemistry was steamy, their banter witty and Come Again was a good addition to the series.

We are back in the Big Rock world with Bellamy and Easton. Their banter is the stuff of legends, although I don’t feel like they ever really pulled off an “enemies” to lovers vibe. There was always attraction and interest simmering below the surface.

Easton is an old school matchmaker and Bellamy a romance blogger. You’d think they’d have a lot in common, but these two enjoy butting heads. Easton is convinced you need to engage in person to fall in love and Bellamy is all about the modern world of on-line dating. Bellamy is a strong woman who doesn’t fall easily for the charming Easton.

No matter how they met, Bellamy and Easton certainly have that intangible connect and you can always count on Blakely for a steamy read.

This one is light on angst, heavy on banter and fun read with lots of side characters to add to the hijinx!

I received an advance copy of this book from Candi Kane PR and these are my honest opinions.

This was such a fun, sweet, and sexy read that I had a hard time putting it down while reading. I practically devoured it and may have ignored my kids while doing so. Bellamy and Easton are just fire together and I couldn't get enough of the letters and their banter. It just added an extra element that didn't wipe the smile off my face.

This is a sexy and fun story between two strangers who fall for each other while trying to stay casual. It can be enjoyed as a standalone but if you have read other books in the Big Rock series you will see a lot of familiar faces.

Thank you to Lauren Blakely and her team for the advance reader copy of Come Again, the seventh book in the Big Rock series.

When Lauren announced her return to the Big Rock world I was super duper excited. These books are where my love for everything Lauren Blakely started. I read them back in 2017 and never looked back. Years later I now get to review for Lauren.

I am a member of Lauren Blakely’s review team, but I stand by my reviews remaining honest and true.

Check out the entire review here.

I am never disappointed when I choose to read a Lauren Blakely book. She always brings the heat, the laughs and the love.
Enemies to lover books are always fun. Their "hate" makes for great sexual frustration and foreplay.
And when this couple connected THEY WERE HOT!
But the story got better our hero was broken and was not looking for love.
So they make a deal sex only
Yep that never works.....
Another great story and I can't wait for the next one.

This is an OK romance, and the couple has some hot scenes, but I wasn't crazy about the H. For that reason, it gets 3 stars from me.

I had trouble liking Easton. He was incredibly arrogant, and didn't seem to understand/care that his behavior toward women could hurt them. He was afraid to love again, so had decided that short-term relationships -- just for sex -- were all he wanted. That would have been OK if he made sure the women agreed, but he didn't bother to do that. At the end, I was surprised that Bellamy forgave him as quickly as she did -- because he really treated her horribly. He did work to get her back, but still ...

Bellamy was likable, but I really wondered what she saw in Easton. She knew that he wasn't interested in love, but she kept seeing him anyway -- even though she DID want love. It was like she was just asking for him to hurt her, which he did.

I did like that they were able to work out their problems at the end, but I had trouble believing they were in love. Seemed like mostly lust to me.

I did like the secondary characters, especially Coco, who was wonderful. I also thought the banter between the characters was very entertaining, and often quite funny.

My rating system is below.
1 star -- Hated it, or did not finish. I usually only give this rating if some of the content is truly objectionable to me, like if one of the main characters does something really awful, and gets away with it.
2 stars -- Didn't like it. This rating usually means that I thought the writing wasn't very good, the editing was terrible, I didn't like the characters, or it had other major flaws.
3 stars -- I liked it, but had some minor issues with it. This rating means that there were minor editing issues, the story needed more character development, it was just too unrealistic, or had some other fairly minor issue. The majority of books I read get this rating – I do not consider it a bad rating.
4 stars -- I liked it a lot. This is a high rating for me, and I rarely give a higher one.
5 stars -- I loved it, and will probably read it again. Very few books are good enough to get this rating from me. The ones that do are usually classics.
