 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.

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 fuck have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?

My Review:

How do you say No to a book with a cover like this one? You don't! Spencer Holiday is one confident dude - in his own words, "I'm hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse." *gulp* He's a playboy who happens to also be a really nice guy. Spencer is in business with his best friend, Charlotte. When circumstances call for him to have a fake fiance, he turns to her for help. Since she has an annoying ex-boyfriend ringing her bell, Charlotte agrees to play fiance to Spencer for one week with some ground rules. And as the week plays out, they both break those ground rules. What happens when pretend turns into real for one or the other of them? Will they lose their friendship or figure things out?

Big Rock was a light, often humorous, friends to lovers story. It's written in first person pov with the story told through Spencer. I started off by listening to the audiobook and while I think the narrator was good, I will say the sound of Spencer's voice in my ears bragging about his assets threw me off just a little. About halfway through, I switched to Kindle and quickly finished the book. I enjoyed Spencer & Charlotte's story, but did find it predictable and a little unbelievable that they went from "only friends for years" to "forever lovers" in one short week. Having said that, it's witty, sexy, and funny. A good, solid, light read for those times when you need a break from the dark & heavy. A Must Read!

My Rating:  3 Friendly 's . . . And that's the truth!
