I’ve been told I have quite a gift.
Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing….
Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place.
Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.
I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says.
Spoiler–neither one of us sleeps.
Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too.
What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?
Lauren Blakely has done it again. I swooned so hard reading this book and it was great seeing so many characters from her other books appear in this novel. Even though Full Package is definitely a standalone it’s kind of in this series that begins with Big Rock, in case you want to start at the beginning.
In this novel, the story follows Chase who needs a place to crash. Enter his best friend, Josie, who’s roommate is moving out. Although Chase believes he’s successfully compartmentalized his feelings so that living with Josie will be piece of cake, that’s of course not the case.
Although this book is very predictable, it’s still very funny and I liked that although this novel is told in Chase’s POV we also get Josie’s POV in the form of her recipes, which was a really cute touch. I also really liked the chemistry between Josie and Chase. They were very cute together and I liked their inside jokes about Swedish Fish and Lyle Lyle (read the book and you’ll understand).
All in all, I thought this was a great read filled with just the right amount of erotica and romance. It’s also a quick read (it only took me a day to read), which is also nice. I’m going to be taking a step backwards in this quasi-series and read The Sexy One soon and I’m very excited to read another book by Blakely.
If you haven’t given Blakely’s writing a chance yet I highly recommend her but only if you’re 18 years or older. This one ain’t for the kids. If you have read this book let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
“I want Swedish Fish with you all the time.”
