Hard Wood

Book 6, Big Rock Series

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That’s why I’m quite a catch— good, hard, loaded, and wait for it…I’m ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she's in town.

I try. I swear I try. But yeah, that doesn't work out. 

And after one fantastic night with my good friend Mia, I’m ready to give her years of nights under the stars. What's a few thousand miles when love's involved? But there’s a hitch in my plans — she just hired my adventure tour company. If there’s one thing I’m committed to, it’s running a squeaky clean business. Number one on my list of iron-clad rules?

Don’t screw your customers.

But what's a guy to do when she's so hard to resist? How hard can it be to keep our hands off each other for a quick group tour down the hills and over the trails? I’m about to find out, and I have a feeling I’m going to need a new badge of honor because things are about to get very hard in the woods.

Customer Reviews


Sweet love at its finest. Patrick and Mia fit like two-peas-in-a-pod!! Patrick is definitely a Blakely Boy-hot, handsome, heart-of-gold, and so swoon-worthy. Patrick is also the proud owner of a hiking feline who seems to always know everything first. Totally loved the occasional chapter from the feline's POV. Mia is a smart, strong, knows what she wants, and goes for it type of woman. Which includes a move across the country to get the man of her dreams. As always, Lauren knows how to write hot, steamy, and oh-so sexy scenes between the sheets. Another great rom-com that lets you escape into a world of great characters with lots of love and laughs from Ms. Blakely. I am continually amazed at Lauren's ability to create a great love story. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review of Hard Wood by Lauren Blakely.


This is pure Lauren Blakely magic! A funny, witty, sexy as anything friends to lovers romance with a charming, strong hero and a heroine who is his perfect match!

Sexy Steamy Fun!

What happens when you finally find the four-leaf clover you have always been looking for but he lives on the other side of the country? Mia and Patrick are fabulous friends. They have been for many years but there has always kind of been an unspoken thing between them. Or at least Patrick has always had a thing for Mia. It only takes one kiss for Patrick to finally figure out that Mia might feel the same way about him as he has felt about her for the last several years. The big problem is the distance between them. Lauren Blakely delivers steamy delicious story about two people who have to decide if taking a chance on love is worth the risk?
