From the New York Times Bestselling author of MISTER O and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

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.

Surprise—neither one of us sleeps.

And even though we agree to return to roomies-without-benefits, I quickly realize I want more than someone to split the utilities with. Now all I want is to spend every night—and every day—with my gorgeous roommate.

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?

Humor ROMANCE Sweet Fave Narrator

Full Package by Lauren Blakely narrated by Sebastian York delivered a fantastic, hot, heartwarming eargasm. Feeling down? Grab your earbuds and call Dr. Chase.

Five reasons to grab your earbuds and listen to Full Package

  • You love combinations like salty and sweet. Told from the male pov, Blakley delivers a story about best friends turned lovers. It is complicated, deliciously hot, and will melt your heart. It’s the perfect combination of humor, heat, and heart. In this story, we have two best friends dealing with housing issues in the big city. Chase is sleeping at his brother’s and every apartment deal he thinks he has fallen through. Josie’s roommate has moved out, and while she can afford the rent, she needs more money for her new bakery. Oh, did I mention he is a new Doctor, and she is a baker? They decide to share her two-bedroom apartment. Things are a tad complicated because secretly Chase has the hots for Josie..but he is a standup guy and values her friendship.
  • All of Blakely’s books are standalone, but if you have read her previous books, these characters are linked. Josie is the sister of Nick from Mister O, and Chase is best friends with Wyatt from Well Hung. (hehe don’t ya love the titles)
  • There are recipes nestled in between the chapters and a whole lot of baking going on. If talk of peanut butter brownies, Creme Brule, and cinnamon gets you, hot…you will love the foodie aspect. The two of them bake inside and outside the kitchen, and it was HOT!
  • I loved both Chase and Josie. Everyone knows Chase has a thing for Joise. He, of course, is clueless. The situation leads to humorous scenes all told from Chase’s perspective, and it had me laughing out loud. This was followed by the inevitable…shared living quarters, late night tv, life talks, and off the chart chemistry. You, see where I am going here? Of course, there is some tension before Chase has his ah-ha moment. As I listened, I experienced all kinds of emotions. I was rooting for them, laughing with them and at times I wanted to shake them both. Confess your feelings! These two tried to be all logical. Grr. It was fun, sexy and heart-warming watching their relationship unfold.
  • Sebastian York is the perfect narrator for Blakely’s books. I love both his male and female voices. He nails Chase, the humor, and the sexual tension. The man could make the phone book sexy.

Are you looking for something to beat away the winter blues? Grab your earbuds and listen to Full Package. Guaranteed swoons, laughter and curl your toes moments. Paging Dr. Chase STAT!

    I’ve listened to Big Rock and Mr. O. For the life of me, I can’t remember Nick although I just listened last week. And you are right. Sebastian York is the perfect narrator for this series. I’ll probably be getting this one sooner or later. Great review!

  2. Angie

    As a matter of fact, I DO love these titles, and even more, I love it when there’s a character who is smitten, and everyone knows it but them. I’ve grabbed the audios for this series, but I’m seeing I need to prioritize them!

    Great review.

  3. Dragonfly

    ohhhh I really like male MC POVs!!! because they are edgy and it seems this book is and more since there is humor. I AM READING THIS ONE. This bastard had me at that cocky blurb! LOL

  4. Lily B

    I love when they add recipes into the mix 😀 every time a book mentions a lot of food I always end up wondering if it has some recipes for it lol
    This looks oh so hot

  5. Bookworm Brandee

    I swear I’m using my next credits on this book and the others in the “series”. Full Package sounds like so much fun, Kimberly. And I’m thinking Sebastian York is the cherry on top. 😉

  6. Cyn

    Oh my gosh, yes! I’m so happy to see you loved this! I can’t wait for Chase and Josie’s story! Glad it was a great listen, lovely review Kim!

  7. Michele

    I was not expecting there to be recipes included in this story! Bonus! This series is on my list, and I think I’m going to have to get to it sooner rather than later 🙂

  8. Sophia Rose

    The titles and the blurbs from this series crack me up. I want to read or listen to them at some point. I love romantic comedy.

  9. Kristin

    Believe it or not, I was just “meh” about this one. I bet the audio is much better b/c of Mr. York!! I just thought it was same story, different author. I DID like her recipes in between, especially how they were tweaked with Josie’s own “take” and feelings at the moment. I have read ALL of these and yet to write up a review. I should probably get on that… hee, hee…

  10. Rowena

    Awww I want to know Chase. I want to read this book now. I love best friends to lovers stories and this one sounds right up my alley. Thanks for the review!

  11. Debbie Haupt

    Oh Man Kim, this is definitely on my wish list. I’ve read Well Hung and Big Rock and am getting ready to get MR O. I am fast becoming a Blakely fan! Great review!!! I WANT!!

  12. Geybie's Book Blog

    I have the ebook but haven’t read it. The audiobook sounds fun, though. Want to try a sample or maybe start with the ebook first. Great review, Kim. 🙂

    I’m still not an audiobook person but I’m definitely willing to give this a read and that cover, excuse me whilst I fan myself.
