Review: Full Package by Lauren Blakely

Rating: ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
Date published: January 9, 2017
Genres: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
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?

Full Package is a sweet, hot, and romantic book, filled with plenty of moments that'll have you laughing. It was one of my most anticipated books since it was announced and it did not disappoint. I loved that this was a friends to lovers romance; it added something extra to the novel. A lot of novels are plagued with insta-love, which some love and others hate, but that was not the case with Full Package. Chase and Josie have been friends for years and everyone around them knows they have feelings for each other except Chase and Josie. Even when they realize the feelings are there, there's still so much to lose. If things go badly, they could very well lose the great friendship they have between them, and they have to decide if it's worth the risk.

What I especially loved about Full Package was that though it was told in Chase's POV, you still got to see some of Josie's POV too through recipes. What I mean by that is that she would write recipes in her journal and there would be added lines relating to the story happening and Chase. I thought that was very creative and I loved getting to a section of the book that was told through Josie.

Full Package was a joy to read. The characters are incredibly relatable and the romance between them felt very real. They had that spark of chemistry that leads to a great novel. I loved reading Full Package and I know you will too.
