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 hardplace.

Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love.
 So even if I have to shack up with my buddys smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a mans got to do what a mans 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.

Surpriseneither one of us sleeps.

And even though we agree to return to roomies-without-benefits, I quickly realize I want more than someone to split the utilities with. Now all I want is to spend every night
and every daywith my gorgeous roommate.

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?

We already met Chase and Josie in the previous books. They're best friends/siblings to all our previous/future heroes!

Chase is in his first year as an ER doc and Josie - Nick and Wyatt's little sis - runs her own bakery.

Chase is desperately looking for a place to live. New York is horribly expensive. The only way he can afford a place is to share one. With Josie. Because no problemo, girls and guys can be friends, and ARE very good friends in their case!

But of course it's not as easy as he thought it would be once she's walking around in a towel fresh out of the shower, or when they're constantly flirting and casually hanging out and touching and tickling each other... ☺☺☺

But has a best friends to lovers ever worked before???

This was the most adorable rom com ever!
Chase is so very sexy. Doctor Mc. Hottie! Every girl's and future mother-in-law's dream guy!!
He's just too cute for words. He starts talking in the prologue and you can't stop loving him and laughing and ugh, he's just amazing! And Josie is so perfect for him!
The sweet, adorable, slightly quirky baker goddess. Chase loves nothing more than to be her test-taster! Just perfect those two. And of course everybody around them already knows that, but it takes them a bit to get over their best-friends-only thing! They don't want to lose their friendship should the benefits part ever die!

This book is told in Chase's POV, but Josie gets tiny little comments in here and there in her sexy recipes! Adorable!

I so want this book to become a movie - or the whole series of Lauren's male POV books could be a tv series! GIMME!!!!! ☺
FULL PACKAGE was the most adorable Romantic Comedy ever! Hollywood please come and make something out of this!! Readers, please run to your nearest amazon asap for your own dose of mega-hottie-doc Chase!!!

ARC received from author for an honest review

Another one knocked out of the park by Ms Blakely.

Full Package is a sweet, adorable, sexy and just too cute for words best friends to lovers to more story.

We met Chase and Josie before in the earlier books and now, we get their story.

Chase, aka Dr McHottie, had me from his first words in the prologue, and I just fell in love with him more every page.

Josie is the quirky and lovable bakery owner, and right from the start we know they have to be more.  I love that all their friends can see what they can't see themselves.

I loved the recipes thrown in throughout the story.  They all sound delicious, but Josie's comments also thrown in there make them all the better.

There is nothing that I didn't like about this story - except for the fact that it ended - booooo!!

I can't wait for more of this series, and am impatiently waiting for Max's story.

I point to the curved wooden stand with a hook at the top. “This. Explain this.”
                Josie sets her hands on her hips. “It’s a banana holder.”
                I give her a stern look. “I can read. I don’t need to know what. I need to know why.” I poke the object on the shelf at Bed Bath & Beyond, otherwise known as the Nexus of Unnecessary Things. Pretty sure there’s some kind of vortex or force field right smack dab in the middle of this store attracting all the weird, bizarre, and odd home goods. “Why can’t they sit on the kitchen counter? Or, how about in a bowl?”
                “Maybe the bananas just like to dangle?” she suggests. “Hang free and all?”
                Smacking my forehead, I go along with it. “Aha. That makes perfect sense.”
                “I’m here to help.” She tugs on my shirtsleeve. “But can we please get to the sheet aisle? You can’t sleep on a naked mattress.”
                “That may be true, but I could definitely sleep naked on a mattress,” I offer, and she laughs as we navigate through another sardine-packed aisle in the mammoth store.
                It’s one in the afternoon, and I just moved in this morning. That took all of two hours. Spending my twenties in med school and as a resident gave me very little time for the acquisition of things, so most of my possessions fit in a duffel bag. I have very little. Not even sheets for a queen-size bed. Ergo, I’m spending Saturday at Bed Bath & Beyond, which is a bit like wandering through a Buzzfeed post titled “Ten Things I’ll Never Use.”
                More like five hundred. Wait. Make that five hundred and one, because I just spotted the new number one item on the list.
                “That,” I say as I make a beeline for a shelf of crème brûlée torches. Grabbing a silvery one, I hold it up. “Please say we can have a housewarming party, and you’ll make crème brûlée, and I can stride all proud and awesome into the kitchen,” I say, puffing out my chest and deepening my voice. “And I can light it with a torch, and we’ll all ooh and ahh at the manly fire I made when I lit up a dessert.”
                She arches an eyebrow. “A manly fire?”
                I nod vigorously. “And then you’ll let the guests take turns punching me in the face for being a total douche for owning a crème brûlée torch.”
                She narrows her eyes. “You actually want people to punch you?”
                I’m deadly serious as I answer her. “If I ever own a crème brûlée torch, you have carte blanche to punch me, Josie. You really should.” I drop the torch on the shelf and take her hand, clasping it tightly in mine. “Promise me. From this day forward. Promise you’ll punch me if I ever own a crème brûlée torch, a rotating tie rack, or more than one kind of cheese grater. This is part of our roommate pact.”
                She grips my hand tighter, her green eyes glowing with stark seriousness. “I solemnly swear to pummel you under all the aforementioned circumstances. As proof of our friendship and roommate solidarity.”
                “You’re a saint,” I say, then wrap a hand around her head and tug her close for a quick kiss on her forehead.
                And hello, sweet, sexy scent of Josie. What is this delicious smell? Is it . . . oh fuck me.Cherries. My God, she smells like cherries. Like the perfect summer fruit. Like the naughtiest fruit. And I’ve got to wonder if that cherry scent is her face lotion, her shampoo, or her body wash?
                Body wash.
                My mind is adrift, and the word association begins. Because what goes with body wash but nudity?
                Naked woman in the shower. Washing. Lathering. Soaping.
                Ah, hell.
                Snap the fuck out it, Summers.
