Really Really Short Review: Big Rock by Lauren Blakely

Really Really Short Reviews

Welcome to Really Really Short Reviews were the name is long and the reviews are short! Because sometimes short is that much sweeter. (Also, because I’m really lazy!) And there might be quotes too (lots and lots)! (Because everyone loves quotes, right?)

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?


It’s been a while since I’ve read a male POV romance, and I gotta say Spencer is a pretty charming. Totally cocky, but surprisingly also almost too perfect, but lovable in the end.

This book is perfect you if you like:

1) Fake Fiancee trope.

“I guess I’m playing your fiancee for the next week, Snuffaluffagus.”

2) Friends-to-lover trope

“Well, duh. There’s one more thing.

“Hit me. What is it?

She rolls her eyes. “Obviously, no falling in love,”

(You know it!)

3) Hotshot boys getting kicked in the butt by love

Something is happening. Something strange and completely foreign. My heart is speaking a language I don’t understand as it tries to fling itself at Charlotte.

4) Fairly minimal angst! Yay for people being reasonable!

5) Cats named Fido that’s got some attitude

“Fido and I have an understanding: I feed him, and he doesn’t cock-block me.”

5) Quick, easy-breezy, cute read.  Like cotton candy~
