About Big Rock: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 cock.
You might think I'm an asshole. 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?
BIG ROCK is a standalone, dirty romance novel written from the guy’s POV by NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…
Love, love, love, love, love.
I feel like we might’ve found Drew Evans’ best friends? Cross-over episode, please?
Spencer had that same brand of “I can get away with it” cockiness, plus all the actual cock talk.
Like, a lot of it.
I mean, let’s talk about the book’s name. Yes, there’s a rock involved, but that’s not where Spencer’s focus was.
Reading the prologue, it was actually a little much. I mean, not the dirtiness itself. Fine by me! But the ego was a little much, and I was kind of going, “What did I just get myself into?” I wasn’t actually that worried since Lauren’s never let me down before, but for a second there, I was nervous.
But the prologue is entirely in Spencer’s head, and the book is not.
So once he started talking to other people, and temporarily thinking about things other than his peen, it was the perfect amount of ego and cockiness. Enough to be slightly annoying and eye-roll inducing, but in that good-natured way you roll your eyes at that one ridiculous friend – where you don’t actually care that much, it’s just “so them.”
