New York Times Bestselling Authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde bring you a sexy new standalone romance.
Fall in love with your next Book Boyfriend . . .
Wes Sinclair is a notorious heart-breaker, a hot as sin bad boy with a panty-dropping smile no woman can resist. Except for his best friend’s little sister and business adversary, Natalie Prescott, who seems immune to his flirtatious charms. While she’s become a permanent fixture in his dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies, she wants nothing to do with him, or his seductive promises. Challenge accepted. His goal? To bring her to her knees, make her beg, and show her just how good being bad can be.
Working that magic that they do so well, authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde have done it again. Being the seasoned writers that they are, working together just seems to bring out the best in both of these ladies, as shown by their latest, BIG SHOT.
With no positive examples of love to draw on in his life, Wes Sinclair is most definitely not in the game of love for the long haul. Oh, he enjoys his fair share of women, but he’s absolutely not looking for a happily ever after. And, while he’s long had the hots for his best friend’s little sister, Wes knows that nothing can ever come of it. Yes, Natalie Prescott is smoking hot, and yes, she pushes Wes’ buttons like no other, but Wes knows better than to break the Bro Code, not even for Natalie. But, wait, there’s more…
Yep, so much more. Because, sassy, spunky, realtor on the rise Natalie knows just how to get a rise out of Wes, in more ways than one. When a friendly little wager ends up with Natalie at Wes’ mercy for two weeks, how in the world are these two not going to give in to the passion that has been smoldering between them for forever?
I really like Wes. Sure, he’s is a player, but it doesn’t take him long to open his eyes and figure out exactly what’s important to him (a little kick in the pants from best friend Connor notwithstanding). He’s always viewed Natalie as the pesky little sister, the ‘frenemy’ that he enjoys sparring with, but seeing Natalie as the capable, successful, passionate young woman that she’s become is an eye-opener for him. Keeping it casual as usual just isn’t going to work, because the heart wants what the heart wants. And, Natalie, before too long, is what Wes’ heart wants.
Natalie is a breath of fresh air. She’s determined to have the life that she wants and the success that she deserves, and she’s not waiting around for anyone to hand these things to her. She’s loved Wes for as long as she can remember, but is not fooling herself into thinking that he’s the one, because she knows him so well. But casual flings aren’t for everyone, and that hold that Wes has on her heart isn’t about to let Natalie do the easy breezy thing. I love that she is strong enough to pick herself up and forge ahead, even while nursing a fair bit of heartbreak.
The sizzle between Wes and Natalie is white-hot, but it’s the humor, the friendship, the easiness of their relationship, as things progress, that really make me enjoy them so much. Carly and Erika have done a lovely job of showing their bad boy just how sweet surrender can be, no matter who’s giving in. 4.5 steamy, sassy, sweet stars for BIG SHOT. This is definitely one to add to your TBR list.
