The #1 New York Times Bestseller!! A hot and hilarious new romantic comedy from the author of smash hits BIG ROCK and MISTER O…
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?
It had all the ingredients for a perfect friends to lovers romance.
I have read and loved every single one of Lauren's books. I knew I would have some laughs, feel all kinds of hot and bothered, and shed some tears but wow...it really does amaze me how she could write so many books and never falters. Never. I adore her, her characters. And her beautiful and magical words. Ok...Full Package. It's a standalone but of course in Lauren fashion, there are connections. Josie is Wyatt (Well Hung) and Nick's (Mister O) sister. Chase is Wyatt's buddy from Well Hung. BTW: if you haven't read those books, you totally should. They rock. Anyway...back to Chase and Josie's story.
Josie needs a roommate. Chase happens to be looking for an apartment. So why not live together? Just because Chase finds his best friend sinfully sexy, sweet as sugar, and loves Swedish fish, doesn't mean he can't live with her. In a six-hundred square foot apartment. He can resist her. He has been doing it for years. He is the master at it. That is until she needs help falling asleep after an emotional night. He is screwed. The line has been tip-toed on and he wants to walk over it but he doesn't want to ruin what they have. He can't lose her. He can't imagine a life without her in it. But, if an agreement is formed between them. Roommates with benefits until it has to end, then back to be the best friends again. What could go wrong?
He's got this. He isn't falling for her. Nope. Not at all. Except it's all a lie. He wants her and all of her delicious desserts. Except the ones with raisins. But, at this point, he would eat those too. Chase is afraid that if he tells Josie the truth that she would end this. He is also afraid that she doesn't feel the same way about him. Yes, they have wild sex. Make love even. They even Netflix without the chill. They play scramble. They have everything to make for the perfect couple but it's at risk if they fall apart. Chase is a smart as hell doctor but what he doesn't see is that Josie wants it all too. The sex and friendship were always supposed to be in separate boxes but when they mix, it was explosive. The chemistry of it all is too real. They always knew there was going to be an end to it. Can they go back to being friends without the benefits? Can they be in the same room without wanting to rip each other's clothes off? Can Chase go back to being Josie's taste tester for her sweets without wanting her for dessert? Can they move on from the full package if they knew they still had the friendship?
I love Chase! He really is the full package but doesn't know it. He isn't overly cocky but he totally could be. He is smart, sweet, loving, loyal, funny, sexy as hell and a Doctor. He is also a giver. Then there is the icing on the cake: his innuendos. On point. Always. I loved Josie too! She is beautiful, smart, sexy, and makes me want to bake. Together...they are the ultimate package. They are so much fun, flirty, and beautiful.
Overall...I didn't want it to end! I laughed. I mean really laughed. I cried more than once. And I definitely felt hot all over more than a few times. It had all the ingredients for a perfect friends to lovers romance.
P.S I need to go buy a boob friend! And more of Josie's recipes.
“I want to grow up to be a stuffed crocodile.”
“What other glorious life-giving veins are you hiding? Let me see your arms.”
“Is this some kind of doctor porn?”
I nod, and my eyes are surely sparkling. “You have the cupcake tin and icing smoother. Hell, I saw the way you eyed that rolling pin, too. You had your fun. Let me have mine.”
“Josie, you could eat tuna fish and I’d still be turned on.”
She brings a hand to her chest and bats her eyes. “I think that’s the sexiest thing you’ve ever said to me.”
Friends to Lovers Perfection! ❤
I don't think I could love a book more than I love Full Package! It was absolute perfection with a cherry on top! There was just the right amount of everything - sexual chemistry, humor, angst, family, and friendship. I am a huge fan of the friends to lovers trope and Full Package did not disappoint!
Chase and Josie are deliciously amazing - both individually and together. I loved how strong and independent Josie was, but also vulnerable and sweet at the same time. She is unapologetically honest about her sexuality and it was refreshing to see that celebrated. The witty banter and innuendo between Chase and Josie made for an excellent slow burn and I think Chase has ruined me now for all other book boyfriends. The story is told from his POV (although we get small snippets of Josie through the clever use of recipes) and only made me love him more. He had plenty of swoony moments (ahem, pink hair dye), and holy moly, some absolutely scorching sexy times (ahem, a little hide and seek after walking home from the train after work) that had my heart racing and dying to read more.
Another thing I loved about Full Package, is that there isn't any unnecessary drama. Just the very real concerns and fears about what happens when the lines of friendship become blurred. Yes, it's a romance, but above all it's a story about friendship and what you're willing to do (and deny) to insure that that relationship survives. I loved how perfectly relatable Josie and Chase's situation was. Can friends become lovers? And can you go back after you cross that line?
You definitely don't want to miss this 5 star romantic comedy! Chase and Josie's story will leave you with the BEST book hangover and I can't wait to Max's story next in Joy Stick!

Drop dead sexy!
Lauren Blakely has quickly become one of my favorite authors because of her catchy and oh-so-suggestive book titles, her drop-dead-sexy heroes and her smart and totally lovable heroines. Her books are just the right combination of romance, comedy and the heart heavy angst that accompanies the joy of falling in love. Chase and Josie are living proof that the trope of friends becoming lovers is alive and well when written by this very talented author. P.S. The recipes included in the book are pretty awesome too! I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
