A lot of the romance novels I read are from the woman's perspective, or the book will alternate points of view between the man and the woman. Full Package, to my surprise, tells the whole story from the guy's point of view. An emergency room doctor in New York City, Chase finds himself on the verge of being homeless. He has to move out of his apartment, but he can't find anything else available.
Cue Chase running into his best friend's sister Josie, a baker who he considers a close friend too. Lo and behold, her roommate is moving out suddenly, leaving her high and dry. Chase and Josie decide to become roommates—and besides, they're practically best friends. What could go wrong?
Yes, it is a eyeroll-worthy setup, which is why both Chase's friends and Josie's friends roll their eyes throughout. There's also the obligatory misunderstanding, which stretches believability a touch. That's made up for by the sex scenes—and this book pretty much a slow burn, as it's nearly halfway through the book before there's a sex scene—are really hot. And the early chapters tease so skillfully that we're ready for Chase and Josie to fall in bed with each other.
In a clever framing device, we do get just a touch of Josie's point of view: we get to read her recipes, which start out professional and end up confessional.
The book is well-written, nicely paced, you root for both the characters, and the sex scenes are terrific. Really, what more could you ask for?
