Melissa's Review:

Big Rock is a standalone novel that has a rich playboy guy needing a fake fiancee asap. This story is told in the leading male's POV which I found to be the perfect fit. I was left wondering if Spencer, our main character would be able to stay "faithful" to his fake fiancee or if real feelings would form before the end of their charade.

We start off by meeting Spencer Holiday, he runs a bar, is filthy rich and is a playboy. His father is trying to sell the jewelry company he started back in the day and the potential buyer is very old fashioned and wants to meet the family behind the business. This is where Spencer kind of puts his foot in his mouth and says his best friend Charlotte Rhodes is his fiancee. His thoughts were right by thinking what's more wholesome than a former playboy settling down. Charlotte has been his friend and business partner for awhile now and is up for the task since she doesn't want Spencer in trouble. In the name of playing the game though they blur the lines between their friendship and it leaves both a bit worried about how their friendship will survive after the charade is over.

Big Rock is a Contemporary Romance I couldn't put down. This rarely happens for me with the story told in a male POV but this one was executed perfectly. I'm seeing why readers love this author's books and I'm going to have to try more soon. If you're looking for a Contemporary Romance with a faking the relationship type trope you'll adore this book.

  3. Interesting. It doesn't switch POVs? Usually I see these through the female lead, but it's nice to switch it up.

  5. I have been wanting to try this one for a while now. I also don't read too many male POVs in this genre so that alone has me curious. Brilly review!
