A fun, flirty standalone romance.
Wes Sinclair is a notorious heart-breaker, a hot as sin bad boy with a panty-dropping smile no woman can resist. Except for his best friend's little sister and his business adversary, Natalie Prescott, who seems immune to his flirtatious charms. While she's become a permanent fixture in his dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies, she wants nothing to do with him, or his seductive promises. Challenge accepted. His goal? To bring her to her knees, make her beg, and show her just how good being bad can be.
hot Hot Hot
Wes Sinclair is Hot as sin and Natalie Prescott is a minx and they have known each other since childhood. The chemistry between the two of them is smoking. Wes has been on the top of his game in the realty business and Natalie keeps out doing him. So what does Wes do makes a wager with her. Who wins, what's the stakes can they stay away from each other.
This is a great beginning of another great series from Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. Cannot wait for the next book in this series and it was great to read the cameo's of some of the other characters from the Dirty Sexy series, although you didn't have to read them.
Hot, Sexy, Frenemie to Lovers
I am thrilled that Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde have continued to co-write books. These two are among my favorite authors and are among the most talented writers in Romance Land. This time we readers received a new stand alone, Big Shot. Combining their voices created a strong story, with characters that not only have compassion and empathy but also depth. I have to say that this book is equal parts dirty and sexy, with some extra fun thrown in, all which benefits by the combining of their voices.
I highly recommend this book to all readers. This book is definitely hot and sexy, but it is also a story about two people who are not only hot in the bedroom but have fun at the same time. It didn’t matter that Natalie has always loved Wes or that Wes never thought he could fall for that special woman. This frenemies to lovers story had me feeling like a fly on the wall watching this relationship evolve. I truly cannot wait to see what to see what Carly and Erika have lined up next as they continue this co-authorship.

4.5 Sweet and Steamy Stars
Working that magic that they do so well, authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde have done it again. Being the seasoned writers that they are, working together just seems to bring out the best in both of these ladies, as shown by their latest, BIG SHOT.
With no positive examples of love to draw on in his life, Wes Sinclair is most definitely not in the game of love for the long haul. Oh, he enjoys his fair share of women, but he's absolutely not looking for a happily ever after. And, while he's long had the hots for his best friend's little sister, Wes knows that nothing can ever come of it. Yes, Natalie Prescott is smoking hot, and yes, she pushes Wes' buttons like no other, but Wes knows better than to break the Bro Code, not even for Natalie. But, wait, there's more...
Yep, so much more. Because, sassy, spunky, realtor on the rise Natalie knows just how to get a rise out of Wes, in more ways than one. When a friendly little wager ends up with Natalie at Wes' mercy for two weeks, how in the world are these two not going to give in to the passion that has been smoldering between them for forever?
I really like Wes. Sure, he's is a player, but it doesn't take him long to open his eyes and figure out exactly what's important to him (a little kick in the pants from best friend Connor notwithstanding). He's always viewed Natalie as the pesky little sister, the 'frenemy' that he enjoys sparring with, but seeing Natalie as the capable, successful, passionate young woman that she's become is an eye-opener for him. Keeping it casual as usual just isn't going to work, because the heart wants what the heart wants. And, Natalie, before too long, is what Wes' heart wants.
Natalie is a breath of fresh air. She's determined to have the life that she wants and the success that she deserves, and she's not waiting around for anyone to hand these things to her. She's loved Wes for as long as she can remember, but is not fooling herself into thinking that he's the one, because she knows him so well. But casual flings aren't for everyone, and that hold that Wes has on her heart isn't about to let Natalie do the easy breezy thing. I love that she is strong enough to pick herself up and forge ahead, even while nursing a fair bit of heartbreak.
The sizzle between Wes and Natalie is white-hot, but it's the humor, the friendship, the easiness of their relationship, as things progress, that really make me enjoy them so much. Carly and Erika have done a lovely job of showing their bad boy just how sweet surrender can be, no matter who's giving in. 4.5 steamy, sassy, sweet stars for BIG SHOT. This is definitely one to add to your TBR list.
