384 pages

There’s no such thing as a little in love…

Elle Wheaten’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .

There’s no such thing as a little in lust…

Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. But now that she’s earned happiness and success, Archer just wants Elle 24/7. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco Earthquake, and Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .

There is such a thing as…

As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along.

Laura's Review: 

 Jill Shalvis' Heartbreaker Bay series is one of my favorites from her - and I have been excited about Elle and Archer's story from the beginning. Was not disappointed here. Exciting, sexy, funny, and at times heart-wrenching, I loved watching Elle and Archer's relationship evolve from friends and colleagues to something much more intense. Archer struggled to keep his distance in a misguided attempt to let Elle have something better than he thought he could give - but his jealousy got the better of him, and then Elle got the better of him - and it was so much fun to watch unfold. A great addition to the already great Heartbreaker Bay series.

    4.5/5 stars!

Review: Big Shot by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

Big Shot (A Book Boyfriend Novel 1) by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

Date of Publication: January 17, 2017


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.

Laura's Review

I'm not sure how it is possible to take a couple (somewhat overused) romance tropes and make them seem fresh and fun, but Big Shot does it! Watching Wes and Natalie, two strong-headed individuals, circle around each other and then come together was pure entertainment.
Fans of the Dirty Sexy series of books are going to eat this one up, too -- This is a perfect example of a writing partnership that just WORKS.

Big Shot: 4/5 stars
