## STELLAR. That's how I would describe this book. It was so cool how it was written mostly from the man's POV. Both hero and heroine were very likeable and had tremendous chemistry. Many friends to lovers stories don't have that sizzle because helllooo "friend zone". Not the case here. These two are hot together. Much sex ensues. The conflict was resolved perfectly and the ending wasn't rushed. Thank you Lauren for not writing the heroine as the typical doormat. I loved that she was capable AND beautiful. Will definitely read again.

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! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

A Review of Full Package by Lauren Blakely Wyatt and Nick's lil sister - 5+++++ stars If you have read any of Ms. Blakely's books regarding the Hammer twins, then you will have met Josie. She is their little sister and owns Sunshine Bakery, which she took over from her parents. Then we have the history of this apartment — it has been home to several of Ms. Blakely's characters. Mr. Barnes owns the apartment, where Charlotte used to live until she moved out to live with Spencer. Mr. Barnes then let Wyatt turn the one bedroom apartment into a two bedroom place (making both rooms very small) for Natalie and Josie to live together. Since Natalie married Wyatt and moved out, Josie has been looking for a new roommate to help her with the bills. Chase Summers went to college with Wyatt (at the tender age of sixteen, since he skipped two grades) and met Josie in their junior year of college, when Wyatt brought him home for the holidays. He is a first year ER doctor after spending a year doing Doctors Without Borders in Africa. He has considered Josie his best friend since meeting her and they kept in touch when he was in Africa. He is now looking for an apartment, but his leasing agent has been dragging her feet about finding him a place and just made a pass at him to stay with her and her husband as a boy toy. When they finally make the connection that they could be roommates, they are both excited, but anxious at the same time. Josie doesn't want to take a chance on messing up their friendship and Chase doesn't know if he can deal with other guys hanging out with her in the apartment. They decide to give it a try and one thing leads to another and they become more than just friends. What happens when things get out of hand? Will they be able to see what is right in front of their noses or will they destroy a beautiful friendship? This was SUCH a GREAT storyline and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing characters that I loved from other stories hanging out in this one and getting to see more about their lives as well. Looking forward to the next book in the series! **Honest review voluntarily provided from a Complimentary Copy**

This fun, sexy, playful book is just what the doctor ordered. I LOVE THIS BOOK! Full Package definitely lives up to its name. A male pov friends to lovers/ best friend’s sister/ roommate forbidden romance with tons of humor, hot steamy scenes, a swoony doctor, and a sassy baker. Mix in some candy, peanut butter brownies and cinnamon and wrap it all up in a fruit roll up…you got yourself a book you’ll fall in love with. It’s everything I could ever ask for…It’s the full package. Doctor McHottie, erm I mean Chase Summers, is in need of an apartment. Josie Hammer needs a roommate. They’re best friends. Living together is the best solution for both their problems. Even if Chase thinks Josie is hot, he can live with her without changing their relationship because compartmentalizing is his specialty. He tries his hardest to fight any feelings that begin to develop being in such a close quarters because he isn’t looking for love and Josie wants it all, the full package. But then, it gets to be too difficult to ignore their attraction. They agree to enjoy their time before the attraction wears out. Josie and Chase are great additions to the long roster of amazing Lauren Blakely characters. She has created one more charming, smart, sexy guy to lust over and another strong, sassy and equally smart heroine who I want as my best friend. Goodness! She writes the most likable characters ever! I can’t get enough. I just adore their friendship. I love that they can exchange fun flirty banter but also go deeper into more serious topics. Their chemistry in and out of the bedroom is off the chart wonderful. He’s her personal taste tester. It’s so cute. Chase may be best friends with Josie’s brother Wyatt Hammer but his friendship with her is just as important to him. You absolutley feel his love and, if I’m honest, I’m a little jealous of Josie. One more thing, even though it is a all male pov, I love that Lauren Blakely finds clever ways to allow readers into the minds of the heroines as well. Whether it be through texts or this case yummy recipes, it is all so brilliant and fun. My diagnosis…Full Package is another hit for Lauren Blakely! The woman can’t be stopped. These all-male POVs are fan-freaking-tastic. I love eveything about them. I’m so hungry for more. I can’t wait for Max’s story!!

Lauren Blakely ALWAYS names her books perfect and they always seem to have a double meaning! Full Package is another amazing book that will have you so in love with all the characters!! Dr. McHottie is the perfect name for Chase!! Poor Chase, he's a Dr. looking for a place to live in New York City. Karma is totally against him in finding somewhere. Every time there seems to be some lame excuse why he can't rent the place he's looking at. So, when his buddy's sister, Josie's roommate moved out and she offers for him to live there, he accepts. He's been friends with her for years, but he's also had the hots for her for years. He's a doctor who can separate his feelings from situations at the hospital, so living with Josie shouldn't be a problem, right? HA!! These two were so good together, so hot and so funny!! I floved this story! I enjoyed it so much, and this book has me wanting to read it again...it was that good! It's funny as I read the comical parts of this book I can hear Lauren Blakely's voice........like she's reading the story to me! If you haven't watched any of her videos that she does when doing blurbs for her new books, you are missing out...she's so funny and full of energy!! Makes me love her books that much more! You can tell her heart, soul and energy goes into them!! Great story and a must read!!

There is something magical about reading a Lauren Blakely story. How the great writing pulls you in, how you want to be friends with all her endearing and likeable characters. How there is a prefect blend of entertaining and sexy as the story unfolds. It's just a amazing thing to immerse yourself in. I always find myself smiling and my heart feeling full by the time the story ends and let me tell you, I never want it to end. This was just a wonderful read and it created the best kind of magic as I lost myself in Chase and Josie’s world. Josie and Chase. I loved, loved, loved their story so much. I loved their personalities and how smart and focused they were in their careers. I loved their friendship and their chemistry as things develop into more and those sweet little moments that played out and how it made my belly flip. I loved the anticipation of the two of them coming together and their electric chemistry when things explode. It was sweet and fun and oh so hot all rolled into one. Lauren Blakely writes a fantastic male POV and I adored Chase and loved his voice. He was totally swoon worthy and made me melt. The writing was great, I was all in from the beginning. It was all so entertaining. There was a really awesome flow happening as all the details were learned. I thought there was nice character development and a really good pace. Loved all the cross over characters involved, it makes me want to hurry up and read their stories so I can get to know them even more. I thought this was a light read, super fun with a good bit of emotion mixed. It was just the perfect friends-to-lovers story and I couldn't get enough. One of the main reasons I think Lauren Blakely is so magical is because I always feel like I'm under some spell when I read one of her books. Totally fascinated and mesmerized by this very detailed world she's created with amazing characters. This was just a perfect read for me full of everything I love.

Lauren Blakely never ceases to amaze me. She has done it once again with Full Package. I absolutely love friends to lovers romances and this one is right there at the top of all of them. This book was so fun and lighthearted, sexy and endearing. Full Package is told in the male POV which is so much fun!! What do you get when you mix a super sexy doctor with a gorgeous Baker? You get two best friends who couldn't be more right for each other. Their chemistry was off the charts, but can their attraction to each other turn to more or will it ruin their perfect friendship? If you love a romantic comedy then this book is for you. Get set to do nothing but read for a few hours because you won't be able to put this book down!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Chase is my very favorite Blakely boy! And that's saying something because she wrote my ultimate book husband in Brent Nichols. But oh Chase! He's just too adorable for words. Full Package really is the full package. It's funny, sweet, and sexy- it'll have you laughing out loud one second and fanning yourself the next. Josie and Chase are #couplegoals. They're best friends whose friendship grows and strengthens throughout the novel, even as their feelings blossom into something more than merely friendship. I had so much fun reading this book- these 2 are so delightful and entertaining. The banter, the teasing, the innuendos...trademark Blakely brilliance! I could not get enough of it all. If you're a fan of friends-to-lovers, brother's-best friend, best friend's-little sister romances, Full Package is seriously the book for you. Everything about this book filled me up with happiness and I didn't want it to end! I love that we got a chance to visit with characters from the previous books, and I'm really looking forward to the rest of the books to come!

This is So good, it's Lauren Blakely good! Characters you want to actually meet and be friends with. The writing is exquisite. She captures everything that needs to be expressed, and does it perfectly. This IS Lauren Blakely afterall.

Full Package by Lauren Blakely is funny, passionate, romantic, hot, and lighthearted with just a little angst thrown in. Chase, better known as Dr McHottie, is an ER doctor, and Josie owns the Sunshine Bakery. As coincidence would have it Josie needs a roommate and Chase needs a room. Having no luck of his own and with only weird people answering her ads, they decide to give it a shot together. After all they are already friends, they have set the ground rules, what can possibly happen? I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading more from this talented author. Five full stars for this one!! (Really enjoyed the chapters from the pages of Josie's Recipe Book)

These standalone books are tied together as all the stories are of a group of friends and or family. It's not necessary to have read them all but it is so much fun. I absolutely love Lauren's writing style and have enjoyed many of her books. If you haven't already read her stuff I recommend you do so, you will not be disappointed.

Adored this friends to lovers romance!!! It's hot, hilarious and so so so sweet!
KindleKat64 More than 1 year ago
What can I say, Lauren Blakely is simply the master of the Rom-Com!! I just adore Dr. McHottie!! Chase is witty, funny, charming, gorgeous and of course sexy as the work day is long. And his days as an ER Doctor can be long. Yes, he absolutely is the "full package" but so is Josie. Josie is a fantastic heroine! She is sweet,sassy, sexy and funny! She is also a very talented and creative baker. I am a huge fan of rom-coms and also of best friends to lovers, especially the concept of best friends who don't even realize that they are perfect for each other and then they fall hopelessly in love. It is just fills me with happiness!! This was one-step better because when Josie needs a new roommate, because they are such great friends, Chase & Josie agree to be roommates and find out that they perfect together in every way. They take it one step further and give in to their crazy attraction for each other, but decide it will be a short term thing once they get it out of their systems so they can remain friends. But at one point it gets too real because Chase is already in love with her and doesn't think he can live with her and end their physical relationship. They are 100% compatible and so many of their conversations totally had me laughing out loud. Their chemistry and passion is super hot so their sexy times are like a volcano erupting! They are just amazing together! These two characters are just so incredibly likable! I loved the recipes Josie creates and how she always has Chase taste test for her. It is so sweet how she incorporates her feelings for Chase into her recipes. My favorite line of the book, although there were so many, is when Chase says to Josie, " I'm crazy about you. I wan't Swedish Fish with you all the time." I can relate because Swedish Fish are one of my favorites too! I will always think of them when I have some. So many reasons to love this book! So many reasons to fall in love with Chase & Josie!! If I could give it 10 stars I would!

Lauren Blakely’s Full Package is a sexy, fun friends-to-lovers romance that provided a reading break I had no idea I needed. Its characters are normal and their relationship evolves in a fairly uncomplicated manner without a lot of the chaos and angst that have been present in some of my most recent reads. But please don’t mistake normal for boring or unoriginal, because Full Package is delightfully entertaining and cleverly written. It’s just that there are no billionaires, womanizers, tortured childhoods, revenge plots, overblown drama or unrealistic characterizations, and the normalcy was unexpected and refreshing. While I enjoy many of the more exaggerated romance tropes and will no doubt read them again soon, Full Package provides a welcome change of pace with its charming characters and relatable storyline while not skimping on the sexual heat and sigh-worthy romance. It’s a truly satisfying read that proves that everyday stories and people are just as pleasurable and emotionally nourishing. Full Package is told almost exclusively through Chase’s point of view, but Ms. Blakely cleverly gives us Josie’s voice intermittently throughout the book by including her test recipes as they make appearances in the story. Every few chapters, the reader is treated to a recipe that subtly communicates Josie’s thoughts and feelings through its title and within its cooking directions. This is delectably different and amusing, and I found myself eagerly awaiting the next installment in Josie’s baking endeavors. I assume they are also useable recipes, so there’s an opportunity to bring Full Package to life outside its pages. Ms. Blakely is known to write spicy books, and Josie and Chase have undeniable sexual chemistry built through their witty banter and efforts to deny their mutual attraction. The resulting sexual tension is substantial and their eventual giving in to their desire is hot. Full Package might steer clear of fantasy and excess, but it is truly a Romance and truly romantic. Sometimes we need a book that feels a little more like real life but still allows us to believe that love can conquer all, and Full Package does just this. It is normal in the very best way possible. ARC provided by the author’s publicist, but no one made me write this review and my opinions are honest and my own.

Eeeppp...squeeeee...awwwww....I mean I can go on, but I will save you the trouble and just cut to the chase (see what I did there) anywho...Chase Summers is the ideal man...smart, good looking, fit, kind, caring, funny, charming...ohhhh and HELLO he is a Doctor!!!!!!! Josie Hammer is gorgeous, sexy, funny, kind and has a nice rack, and I am not talking about her baking supplies people! Chase loves her treats, her homemade, made with love-just for him treats! Chase and Josie are Bff's who are very flirty and never once crossed that line, although everyone else can see they have major chemistry when they are together. They are quirky and cute and fit together like they were made for each other. I mean I would Swedish Fish with Chase any day...I would peanut butter brownie with him as well...hell I would mushroom and cheese pizza with him and I HATE mushrooms!!!!!!! I love to read a LB book like I love to breath...she always writes these story with heart and soul and her characters have so much personality that you fall instantly in love with them. She makes them likable and relatable. Her words make you swoon all over the place...Chase and Josie were more then your classic BFF turned lover story...they were everything to each other and more. They had a deeper connection and love was the foundation of their relationship. I fear if I keep writing I will let the proverbially cat out of the bag so I shall leave you with this: "She is my favorite place."~ Chase Summers

Full Package is everything we've come to love about Lauren Blakely's writing! Humorous, sassy, and oh so sexual...her male POV books are without a doubt some of the hottest and most enticing books I have read. I will never get enough! In Full Package we meet Chase and Josie. Both are young and attractive, and both seem to have apartment problems. Chase needs a place to live, desperately. And Josie's roommate has moved out. When they realize each other is the solution to their problem, they don't know why they didn't think about it sooner. That is, until they realize everything that comes along with having a sexy-as-hell roommate. Friendship lines begin to blur, and the limits to they're controlled lust get tested. Can these two navigate a new sexual aspect to their friendship?...or will the risk of losing the other hinder any chance they have at a loving relationship with one another? Chase and Josie are at the top of a very long list of Lauren's characters that I absolutely love. Their quirky friendship and flirty banter made it very easy to connect with them. And the passion they share is so hot, smoke alarms go off! Chase's concern and worries about mixing friendship with pleasure made him completely charming. His love for Josie as a friend, first and foremost, was very enduring. And for Josie to feel the same way....gah! I wanted to yell at these two because it's obvious to everyone that they're in love with each other. But the fear of losing someone so close can overshadow even their own desires and wants. I legit LOVE this book! Full Package is exact that...the full package! Lauren's writing is amazing like always, and the story is passionate, fun, and very entertaining. If you've liked Lauren's previous male POV books, then you need to read this one....you will devour this delicious book from beginning to end! 5 Stars!

**Advanced Reader Copy received from the author in exchange for an honest review** This was a fantastic book to read to kick off the new year! I always enjoy Lauren Blakely's books, the rest of the books in this series are seriously awesome, but this one is definitely one of my favorites. This book had the full package - friendship, humor, emotion, sweets (who doesn't love good sweets?!) and sexual chemistry! Emergency room doctor Chase Summers has just returned after being away with Doctors Without Borders and he's looking for a place to live. He keeps coming close to closing a deal, but something always happens and he loses the place. When he ends up moving in with his best friend Josie, who is a skilled dessertier and the sister of his best friend, will this man who has always had a knack at being able to compartmentalize his feelings be able to continue to compartmentalize with such ease? These two friends have done everything and nothing together for years and that is all they have ever been, friends. But when they are put into 600 square feet of living space and spending even more time together, will they be able to resist the pull and the obvious sexual chemistry they share? Or will preserving their friendship cause them both to walk away from the one person that could make them happier than either has ever been? Lauren Blakely's ability to make you laugh, smile and feel is second to none and this book was a clear testament to her talent as a writer. I can't wait for Joy Stick. I have no doubt it's going to be just as awesome!

Lauren Blakely delivered just the right amount of tension, chemistry, heat and romance in Full Package!!! Josie and Chase are friends who decide to help each other when they find themselves in need of a roommate. Chase is also best friends with Josie's brother. These two have been attracted to each other forever, but haven't acted on it because they don't want to lose each other as friends. But when living in close quarters, the sexual tension just keeps ratcheting up and up until they can't resist anymore. What I love about this book: ~The writing. OMG. I just couldn't stop turning the pages. The book is delivered mostly from Chase's POV, with bits of Josie sprinkled via recipes - clever idea. ~ The tension. I could feel the electricity building up between these two characters until I was about to combust!!!! I was SO READY for them to act on their attraction and thought - FINALLY, it will happen now...but I was wrong. By the time they get it on I was DYING. DYING . ~ Chase. I love him. Smart, funny, sexy, charismatic. He really is the "full package." ~ Josie. I love her too. She was sweet but sassy and sexy. I was really rooting for these two characters. Bottom line - ONE CLICK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. This series of spin-off books starts with Big Rock, but this is definitely my favorite of the line up. This one is going on my re-read list!!!! Thank you Lauren Blakely for your awesome words!!

Chase Summers, an ER doctor at Mercy Hospital in NYC has wanted Josie Hammer for years, and she has also been his friend for years, and his friend Wyatt’s little sister. Chase was only subletting an apartment, and now he needs a place to stay, which is not easy to find in New York. After a long day at the hospital, he goes to see his friend Josie at her bakery shop, Sunshine Bakery. It turns out that Josie’s roommate moved out, and she cannot seem to find anyone suitable, but then again, she knows Chase; he would be an ideal roommate. Almost… Once again, Lauren Blakely gives us a wonderful story! Chase and Josie are such lovely characters and so well matched. I loved their friendly banter, their teasing, which eventually becomes even more flirtatious, before leading to seriously hot sex scenes. FULL PACKAGE is again told from Chase’s point of view, however we experience some of Josie’s inner dialogues, which are sprinkled amidst some included (yummy!) recipes, and I thought this was a brilliant move from the author. I loved how Ms. Blakely dealt with this friends-to-lovers trope, but I’m not saying more about it, as it would ruin the pleasure of discovery. The gorgeous prose and the lively pace are present, as is always the case with the author, and we also get some sneak peeks from other fab books to come! Lauren Blakely starts the New Year with a bang! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

I didn't think I could love this series more with each book, but Full Package is the Full Package! Chase Summers is a handsome, kind, and funny Doctor. He is also so sexy, his close friend, Josie Hammer, calls him Dr McHottie! Chase is back from Africa working as an ER Doctor and has been trying and failing to find a place to live. Josie, the owner of Sunshine Bakery, is gifted in creating wonderful desserts and uses Chase as her very willing taste tester. When Josie's roommate Natalie, moves out to live with Josie's brother Wyatt, she is in need of a new roommate. Chase and Josie have been good friends for years, and are compatible in every way. Josie asks Chase to move in telling him he would be the perfect roommate. Josie is upbeat, friendly, and outgoing. Chase finds it hard to not be attracted to his best friends sexy sister. But he is the king of compartmentalizing and believes he can put those desires in a drawer and lock them away, maybe... When Chase and Josie can't deny their attraction any longer, are they willing to put their friendship on the line? I am totally in love with Chase and Josie! They are both strong, witty, and caring people. They are so perfect together, supporting each other and their chemistry and passion is off the charts. When they give in to their desires, Chase is nervous the morning after. But Josie proves she is the perfect friend and lover, making him feel at ease. This is told from Chases pov but I love getting a glimpse of Josie's thoughts and feelings through her recipes and directions at the beginning of each chapter, pure genius! We also get to catch up with all the friends and family we have fallen for and meet new intriguing characters as well. Lauren continues to create hilarious, touching, and hot and sexy romances that capture my heart and Full Package is a masterpiece!

Full Package by Lauren Blakely (Audio Edition) Narrated by Sebastian York 4.5 Stars - What a great friends to lovers story! Chase and Josie are wonderful together. Fun banter, great chemistry and I felt the sincerity between them that only happens between truly good friends. I love that he is a good guy who has a good heart. Josie’s cookbook recipes were great - they cracked me up. There were a few sigh worthy moments and a major one... that totally brought a huge grin to my face! Sebastian York did a great job narrating. This book was a win for me! ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

I love this series but MOST OF ALL...LOVE CHASE and Josie (he gets the caps because well, he is the full package.) Lauren Blakely has become one of my favorite authors and this by far is a great read. "Just Mouth the Words"...had me laughing my butt off!!!!
