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 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.

Big Shot is the first book I have read that is written by both Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. I have read many Carly Phillips books, but this is a first for Erika Wilde for me.
I enjoyed this book, but it didn’t WOW me like I was hoping it would. This book is a Frenemies to lovers story and I thought the storyline was interesting, but it dragged at times which slowed the flow down for me. I would’ve liked to see a little less description in the story and a little more drama. I did like the forbidden aspect of the story being that it is also a Best Friends little sister type story. That really added the angst level to this book.
In Big Shot we meet Wes and Natalie. Wes is a well known Real Estate Agent who owns a Real Estate Company with his three best friends. Natalie is also a Real Estate Agent who wants to desperately work for Wes’s company and has secretly been in love with Wes for years, but because they are both so competitive…..they have become adversaries over the years also. Natalie is Connor’s little sister, so she has always been off limits to Wes. But the more he hangs out with her the harder it is to not give into his cravings 😉 So what happens when two adversaries decide to place a friendly wager on their next big sale?? Will lines be crossed?? Will real feelings be revealed?? Can Natalie melt Wes’s cold and non commitment heart and make him fall in love with her??? Read this book to get those answers.
I look forward to reading the other books that will be coming out in this new series. I would’ve liked to get to know the other characters a little more in this book, but it will be fun figuring them out in their own books.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a frenemies to lovers story with a forbidden aspect to the storyline. If angst is your thing then this is a book you should try. Just because it wasn’t a 5 star for me doesn’t mean you won’t love it!!! It’s definitely worth a try.
