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?

Four stars: A funny romantic comedy with an excellent manly protagonist who falls in love and does everything backwards.
Wyatt is a successful carpenter, who has worked hard to establish his name and his business. One of the reasons he has a solid business is because he has learned from his past. He refuses to mix business with pleasure, and he certainly won't touch his assistant Natalie. No. He will keeps his hands to himself even though his manly parts might have other ideas in mind. If he does go there, he will lose the best thing that ever happened to his business, and he can't afford to make another mistake....until he takes a trip to Vegas with Natalie. What happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas, and Wyatt soon finds himself trying to untangle his mess. Will he lose his heart, his business or both?
What I Liked:
- Well Hung is a romantic comedy told from a man's point of view. I loved that Ms. Blakely nailed Wyatt's voice. This book is hilarious. Full of sexual euphemisms and innuendoes. If you want a realistic and funny male protagonist, read this one, or better yet listen to it.
- One of my complaints with romances that feature males as the main characters is that they often come off as men written by women, meaning they don't think and act like a man would. That is so not the case with Wyatt. Ms. Blakely writes him so well, I would swear that a man wrote the book. Wyatt's voice is crude, funny and very male, and yes he does plenty of thinking with his male parts. I laughed at his antics and snickered at his sexually charged comments on stud finders, tools, etc.
- The romance itself is fun, especially because it ends up being a mess. From the get go, there is strong, underlying sexual tension between Wyatt and his assistant Natalie, whom he claims he won't get involved with, no matter what. Then during a wild and wicked trip to Vegas, business quickly turns to pleasure then to lust, to sex and finally the big, bad mistake: the drunken Vegas wedding complete with Elvis bursting out of his gold jumpsuit. When reality hits the next morning, Wyatt wants nothing more than to undo his mess, but then he realizes he might be making another mistake. I enjoyed watching this romance unfold, it is full of surprises, plenty of missteps and lots of sizzling moments.
- Natalie is the perfect match for Wyatt. She is not your typical girl. She is well trained in martial arts, a wizard at organizing and scheduling, and she can strap on a tool belt and do a little carpentry. She has a wicked sense of humor, and she loves sex. I liked that she was able to go to toe to toe with Wyatt, and that she was almost always upbeat and smiling.
- The ending is funny and fantastic, with not one but two epilogues. I enjoyed seeing how everything worked out, and I couldn't help but giggle at the second finale. No loose ends, but there is a hint that Wyatt's sister's story might be next.
- I listened to the audiobook version narrated by the talented Sebastian York. Mr. York does a phenomenal job with Wyatt's voice. He nails him, bad pun intended. I don't know if I would have enjoyed this as much if I had read it vs. listening to it.
And The Not So Much:
- At first, the romance and the sex scenes were fun and exciting, but after numerous sexual encounters, it got old, especially when you are listening to it. Toward the end, I felt like the sex scenes went on and on, and I wanted more story and substance. Just a personal preference.
- This is definitely not a romance for those who like things prim and proper. Wyatt is a total guy and he thinks one. This is at times crude and explicit.
- There are a few tiny snippets from Natalie's voice, mostly via conversations with her sister. I found myself wishing that there was more from Natalie's view point.
Well Hung is a hilarious romantic comedy told from a guy's point of view. This features a funny romance that gets everything backwards. I loved both the main characters and their chemistry. A fun romance bursting with sexual innuendos, but it is on the explicit side. The audiobook version is fantastic, grab it!
