Plot Summary:

From the NYT Bestselling author of MISTER O, comes a hot and hilarious new standalone...

Here’s what you need to know about me—I’m well-off, well-hung and quick with a joke. Women like a guy who makes them laugh—and I don’t mean at the size of his d*ck. No, they want their funny with a side of huge… not to mention loyal. I’ve got all that plus a big bank account, thanks to my booming construction business. Yup. I know how to use all my tools.

Enter Natalie. Hot, sexy, smart, and my new assistant. Which makes her totally off limits... 

Hey, I’m a good guy. Really. I do my best to stay far away from the kind of temptation she brings to work.

Until one night in Vegas… 

Yeah, you’ve heard this one before. Bad news on the business front, drowning our sorrows in a few too many Harvey Wallbangers, and then I’m banging her. In my hotel room. In her hotel room. Behind the Titanic slot machine at the Flamingo (don’t ask). And before I can make her say “Oh God right there YES!” one more time, we’re both saying yes—the big yes—at a roadside chapel in front of a guy in press-on sideburns and a shiny gold leisure suit. 

But it turns out what happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas. And now, my dick doesn’t stay in my pants when she’s around. I try to resist. Honest. But the more we try to keep our hands to ourselves, the more we end up naked again, and the more time I want to spend with her fully clothed, too.

The question now is…do I take this woman to be my ex-wife?

My thoughts: 

Well Hung was my first Lauren Blakely book (way back when) and it was my first book written from the male's POV - so perhaps I should go back and give it a reread now that I'm more comfortable with that style and voice. When I initially read the book, I enjoyed it but really couldn't get into it. While I thought the male POV thing was novel, it was just really hard for me to relate to Wyatt and Natalie. I thought there relationship was really cute and the sex was hot (of course!), but I just couldn't connect with them. Now that I've read more of Lauren's work (she is one of my must read and favorite authors), I think it might be time to go back and start from the beginning, by reading Big Rock, Mister O (my favorite out of the series), and then Well Hung. Perhaps that will give me new perspective and along with my better understanding of the writing style - I'll enjoy Natalie and Wyatt's story more!
