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?

Absolutely LOVED it! At first,The title of the book gave me doubts as to an actual story line. But it perfectly matched the main character's sense of humor. I could not put this book down! The chemistry and heat between these two was off the charts.

Spencer was a playboy to the max. Charlotte is his best friend and business partner. They are each others wingman when they get into a bind. Spencers father is selling his business to a family man. He takes it upon himself to stopping his playboy ways. He decides to ask Charlotte to act like his fiance until his father's business is sold. All this pretending can't be a good decision for the best friends. This was the best playboy book I ever read. Spencer is a really nice and considerable guy and not an arrogant jerk that so many books out there already. He is a great best friend to Charlotte , and to his sister and friend Nick too. The characters in this story are very unique from any other I read before. Great writing Lauren can't wait to hear Nicks story. Grab this book for a great best friend story like no other.

The chemistry of the two main characters, Spencer and Charlotte is just awesome! We all wish we had that friend of the opposite sex that we can rely on to be our “fake date” but then these two take it one step further. This is a male POV book and the sense of humor is just ….well, hilarious at times. Again, I highly recommend Lauren Blakely’s books. The sense of humor is just awesome. You will not be disappointed.

Blakely’s Big Rock is a fast paced, non-stop laugh out loud romantic comedy told in the first person POV of her über-confident without being smug, too sexy for his own good hero and couples him with a beautiful, smart heroine who’s not only his bestie but also his perfect match. Set in Manhattan she utilizes many Big Apple landmarks and amenities and gives her stars an added layer of sophistication. The banter is entertaining, Spencer’s cat Fido is a hoot and the love scenes are smoking hot making this BFF to Forever Love a must read on any romance lover’s list. The audible edition narrated by Sebastian York is the perfect way to experience the read. With his deep sexy voice Sebastian’s perfect for Spencer and he’s good at not only the female voices but also the subtle inflections and setting an impeccable mood. This is the perfect way to enjoy a stressful, rush-hour commute. Spencer Holiday will be the first to admit that he is a master serial dater, has no interest in happy ever afters. But when the sale of his dad’s flagship jewelry store depends on just that he needs a pretend fiancé fast for a week. So whom else would he turn to but his BFF and business partner, the beautiful woman who knows him the best. When her best friend begs her to be his temporary fake bride-to-be Charlotte Rhodes has reservations about how she a horrible liar and he a confirmed bachelor can possibly pull this off. But when her “test” kiss turns her on more than she ever imagined she thinks there may be more to worry about than pulling it off, like keeping her heart safe.

I loved this book! The humor is great and the love story is passionate. As you read it you see all the signs that Spencer has missed about him and Charlotte. They finally add up to him and then bamn! He falls fast. I hope Nick's story is as good. It's fun to read from a guy's point of view.

4 stars I purchased Big Rock by Lauren Blakely in The Bigger Rock 4 book collection and this review was given freely. This falling in love with your best friend and business partner romance starts out as a scam but has a happy ending for Charlotte and Spenser . There are multiple steamy scenes. The sister is everything I would expect in a real sister: loving, teasing, and a little bratty. The language is a little raw and rough as I would imagine the average guys language would be. The story line was enriched by the characters of Nina, the caring father, the rebellious Emily, and the shavenistic Mr. Offerman.

Writing style: 1st Person POV (Spencer’s) Cover design: I love how elegant and sexy it is. Best friends who own a business together should have no problem pulling off a convincing fake engagement, right? Right. Easy. I think my favorite moments were when Spencer and Charlotte were just hanging out doing their friend thing. The added layer of sexual tension and then sexual fulfillment seemed entirely natural and believable. We’re only in Spencer’s head, and I liked knowing he wanted something more with his bestie before she verbally acknowledged she felt the same way. And we get a double bonus at the end. I loved the second epilogue even more than the first one.

Delightful in every way. I loved the humor in this book. I loved how they had a fake relationship that turned real. I loved the way that he thought about her and protected her from gross creeps. I just loved it.

OMG- It's SWEET & HOT & SEXY. You will not be able to put the book down. Is there anything you won't do for your best friend? You will be glued to the pages between the humor and the chemistry of two best friends. Charlotte and Mr. Holiday....WOW. Great read!!! Aren't promises made to be broken

Big Rock by Lauren Blakely Narrated by Sebastian York 4 Stars - I was excited to read Spence and Charlotte’s story as I had just read and loved Mister O. Spence was funny, demanding and his inner grumblings made me chuckle with his use of words like “Douche-nozzle.” Charlotte was an honest, nice girl and at times I felt she was a little less confident in herself than I had originally thought. Those moments happening few and far between, but when they happened, they seemed to stick with me. The two leads fit well together and I liked their ease of working in the bar as partners, they truly felt like the old friends they were written to be. Sebastian York's narration was great as usual.
