Synopsis from Goodreads
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?
The inter-connected rom-coms are my favourite stories by Lauren Blakely. I seriously admire her ability to keep track of all the characters, progressing the previous main characters while simultaneous focusing on the protagonists of the current story without taking any of the limelight away from them. Not only that she manages to introduce the next set of characters and lay the foundation of their story. WOW.
Chase aka Dr McHottie has been friends with Wyatt (Well Hung) and Nick (Mister O) for a long time, bringing him into their little sisters Josie’s life and gaining her friendship at the same time. It is obvious Josie and Chase have some serious chemistry but neither is willing to risk their friendship for the sake of a relationship that might not work.
Chase and Josie are utterly adorable together; they complement each other perfectly providing balance and support to each other, their hesitancy to take their friendship to the next level is understandable when you witness the depth of their friendship. However, fate takes a helping hand bringing them into close personal quarters when they become room-mates. Hormones just can’t be denied when they become so out of control 😉
Intent on keeping their friendship, Chase and Josie agree to ground rules to their new benefits situation. Although it is painfully obvious to the outside observer that compartmentalising their emotions is only going to create more problems in the future. Revelations about past relationships add clarity to their determination to keep their friendship. At times I felt as if I wanted to give them both a good shake to get some sense into them alongside a dose of courage. They really are perfect for each other and deserve a happily ever after full of the delectable delicacies Josie creates ♥
Full Package is exactly that, containing all the elements to a truly fabulous rom-com – humour, endearing characters and more than a little heat. Everyone deserves the FULL PACKAGE and Lauren Blakely delivers it 😉
