Except for his prim and proper adversary, Natalie Prescott, who seems immune to his flirtatious charms.

The Dirty Sexy series is the beginning of my love affair with Carly Phillips’ and Erika Wilde’s book boyfriends.  I love the Kincaids and their significant others.  Now I keep an eye out for any new books these two talented authors release while I slowly catch up on their older releases.  Big Shot is their latest book and the first book in The Book Boyfriend Series.

I love the characters they create, both male and female.  In Big Shot, the hero is Wes Sinclair, the ultimate big shot.  He owns a successful real estate company with his three friends.  He is not only successful, but Wes is also that hot guy that has women fall at his feet.  All it takes is his sexy smile, and they will do anything he asks even when he tells them he isn’t into relationships and nothing is going to change his mind about that. 

Natalie Prescott is Connor Prescott and Wes’ best friend’s little sister.  She is working hard to break into the real estate business and turned to her brother for a foot in the door.  Unfortunately for her, Wes put a stop to that.  His reasons are many but, what he doesn’t admit to his friends is he knows it will drive him crazy to be around her day in and day out.  They don’t get along.  They get on each other’s nerves for as long as they can remember.  She is the little brat that they don’t want to hang with them.  The thing is she isn’t a little brat anymore; she is a big brat.  There is chemistry between Wes and Natalie “Minx” that both try to ignore and fool no one around them. 

Natalie decides to prove that Premier Realty made a mistake rejecting her.  She throws down the gauntlet and bets Wes that she will sell a million dollar property before he does.  If she wins, she gets to work at Premier.  If Wes wins, Natalie has to do anything he asks for two weeks. 

After winning the bet, these two are forced to spend a lot of time together.  It is a blessing and a curse as they begin to see good qualities in each other that they didn’t recognize in the past.  Their time together sets up many funny moments and some very sexy ones. 

Natalie is a sassy woman and doesn’t take anything from Wes.  I enjoy the dialogue between these two and Natalie’s hijinks get her point across. Needless to say, before long they decide to have a no strings attached, two-week sexcapade.  Wes doesn’t disappoint at all.

“I need to know it’s okay, because I’m not going to stop at just one taste this time, and I can pretty much guarantee that once my lips touch yours, there will be no going back.”

Big Shot is a good friend to lovers romance that I find very enjoyable.  It moves along at a good pace that keeps the pages turning.  Natalie and Wes are my kind of couple.  I love that they keep each other on their toes with their bickering, their teasing, and their chemistry.  Everything comes together beautifully. 

Also, I love that the Kincaids made an appearance in the book.  It is a fun trip down memory lane to see where the Kincaid brothers are in their life.  Needless to say, I can’t wait for the rest of The Book Boyfriend series to unfold.  I highly recommend Big Shot.  If you haven’t read anything by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde before Big Shot is a good place to start.  If you have read their previous books, you need to add this one to your library.
