New Release Review: 3.5 stars for Big by Emme Rollins




Author:  Emme Rollins

Publication Date:  June 3, 2016

Genre:  Women’s Fiction, Contemporary Romance


He’s big. He’s bad. And he only wants one thing.


Ric Ryker spent years being called “Big Dick.”

Ridiculed for his weight, shunned by all the pretty girls, snubbed by all the cool guys.

But after a secret journey of transformation, he’s back—ready to take over leadership from his father at Ryker Arms—with an impressive new physique and a plan to prove them all wrong.

Especially her.

The one woman who hurt him the most.

Annalesa—sweet, smart, stunning.

And his stepsister.

The girl he could never have.

The girl who wouldn’t look twice at him anyway—especially in front of her stuck-up friends.

Now he’s going to make her want him.

Show her just what she was missing.

And hurt her, just like she hurt him.

He’s got the weapon and he’s taken aim—but he didn’t count on his own heart getting caught in the crossfire.

This is a stand-alone novel with no cliffhanger ending.


My Review:

Rating:  3.5/5 Stars

Okay.. Color me impressed. This is the first book from Emme Rollins I’ve read and I liked it.

This is a stepbrother, bad boy romance (but not in an icky way) with an underlying theme of revenge. Analeesa and Ric are great characters that you want to root for. The story develops well and then ending is sweetly satisfying.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Emme Rollins is a NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of New Adult/Mature Young Adult fiction. She’s been writing since she could hold a crayon and still chews her pen caps to a mangled plastic mess. She did not, however, eat paste as a kid.

She has two degrees, a bachelor’s and a master’s, one of which she’s still paying for, but neither of which she uses out in the “real world,” because when she isn’t writing, she spends her time growing an organic garden to feed her husband and children (and far too many rabbits and deer!) where they live on twenty gorgeous forested acres in rural Michigan.

She loves tending her beehives, keeping up with her daily yoga practice and going for long walks in the woods with her boxer dog, who loves chasing squirrels almost as much as Emme loves writing!
