Darkly handsome, gorgeous from his hair to his boots, with the ability to make your skin tingle if he stares right at you. Everyone knows his family is rich beyond belief with a reputation for tearing down historical properties. He's my enemy. No question. That's why I'm shocked when he offers me a deal. He'll give me the house... If I pretend to be his wife. One month. That's all he's asking for. And I think I can handle it, keep things business. No flirting. No kissing. I can't give in, because someday I DO want marriage... a real one. This isn't real. I remind myself of that every minute Caleb consumes me with his intoxicating presence. I could never love him or his terrible family. We're total opposites. So why does it feel like we want the same happy ending?

    looks around I mean.. I don't know what I expected from a 100 page book titled, big man's bride, but the blurb sounded kind of interesting and it was short enough to be my first PW book. Well. Let's just say that this was not even remotely well paced. Two main characters meet in the first 3 pages, and they literally - I mean literally - start having sex like something out of a porn. Which, more power to you, it just made the whole thing kind of meaningless and its only around 100 pages so.. yeah looks around I mean..

    One of my new faves by PW! I loved Caleb and Ally and the chemistry between them - it definitely kept me turning the pages. I also love a good marriage-of-convenience trope so this was right up my alley. I also love the banter between the characters - totally reminded me of myself when reading Ally's quips.

    A slowburn romance with heart! Penny Wylder brings us the characters of Caleb and Ally. This is another marriage of convenience story that packs quite the emotional punch. The story will draw you in and keeps the reader entertained with the sizzling chemistry between Caleb and Ally. Liked the bantering that took place. The ending is classic PW! My Rating: 4.4 stars *******

What happens when the heart gets in the way? I loved how she was willing to do anything to get back the place that held so many good memories for her. He definitely showed that he had more sides than just being a rich snob and I loved how he showed a softer side. Loved this steamy read!

    Penny Wylder never disappoints with her hot and steamy romances. In Big Man's Bride, Ally has scrimped and saved to buy back the house on the Cumberland River she grew up in, but when she finally has the funds to put in an offer, she finds out the manor has already been purchased by a developer.

In Big Man's Bride, Ally has scrimped and saved to buy back the house on the Cumberland River she grew up in, but when she finally has the funds to put in an offer, she finds out the manor has already been purchased by a developer. She hightails it to the house hoping to make a deal to buy it back and encounters the new owner - the hot as hell Caleb, a member of the Staunton family known for buying up properties and razing the homes for modern developments. Their meet-cute is hilarious and their chemistry instantaneous. Ally and Caleb both quickly discover they can each be a means to an end to get what they want - for Ally, her house, and Caleb needs a bride in order to collect his inheritance. Caleb proposes a month-long deal: they get married, and at the end of the month, he will have secured his money and then he will sign over the house to her. Enemies-to-lovers is not my favourite trope, but I do love fake relationship romances. However, whatever Penny Wylder writes is brilliant, and in Big Man's Bride, she easily weaves both together - and I loved every interaction between Ally and Caleb. Their banter is delicious and their steamy encounters are definitely best read in the privacy of your own home ;) Definitely another must read by the incomparable Ms Wylder.

This pr She may be crazy but she is his perfect kind of crazy Big Man's Bride is the first book in the Big Men Small Towns Romance series. This is a wonderfully charming and deliciously dirty story about Allison Hollis and Caleb Staunton. It is a small enemy to lovers mixed with a fake marriage and a whole lot of super hot and heavy sexual chemistry. Allison has scrimped and saved for the last several years to get enough money for the down payment to purchase her grandfather's old historic house. This property is on the Cumberland River outside of Nashville and it holds a lot of her childhood memories. Unfortunately when Allison was fifteen her mother died of cancer and her grandfather sold his place so he could move into town and raise Allison and make sure she went to college. The house has sat empty for all these years as the person who bought it lost interest in restoring it. But for the last couple of years it has been up for sale with no buyers, which has allowed Allison to opportunity to save. At least that is what she thought. When she makes the phone call to the realtor, a woman she has become friendly with and who has encouraged her in her dream, Allison is met with the worst news....the house was sold a couple of weeks ago. Caleb was raised in NYC with wealth and privilege as he is part of the very rich Staunton family. But Caleb's world was not just what people thought it was. His family life was not happy and was actually quite abusive. That is except for his beloved grandfather who loved him and only wanted the best for him. That included leaving Caleb a large amount of money which his parents, as trustees, have not signed over to him as they have a stipulation. Well actually they like control and that includes wanting him married. So Caleb left his family and has not really talked with them for several months. But Caleb has a business that he loves, he buys and restores old historic homes and then sells them. He came to Nashville and found a home just outside town along the Cumberland River that he bought with a cash offer. He already has plans drawn up on what he wants to do, both inside and outside to restore the home but also put some modernization into the house at the same time. Too bad for him his plans are about to be disrupted in a very painful way when a little dervish shows up in his driveway one day. I loved this book as it had everything - a great story-line that was funny, witty, sexy and infuriating at times mixed with two characters that were very opposite but at the same time shared hurt and trauma from their childhood which they were able to recognize in each other. My only issue is that the book needs another visit with the proofreader as there were a number of errors that were easily spotted. It is a shame as what should have been a 5 Star rating instead is 4 Stars. But otherwise I really loved this delightful story.

    Ally’s mom died when she was 15 and her grandpa sold his house to move in with her and raise her. Ally loved that house and had many happy childhood memories there so she had been saving her money for years to buy the house and restore it for her and her grandfather. When she had enough money saved she finds the house had just sold and she goes to confront the new owner and see if he will sell it to her. She misunderstands Caleb’s action when she arrives and he accidentally gets hurt in the leg. Ally’s mom died when she was 15 and her grandpa sold his house to move in with her and raise her.

He then tells her that he will give her the house if Ally will marry him for 30 days so that he can receive an inheritance from his beloved grandfather that his parents will not release until he is married. Will Ally agree to temporarily marry Caleb so that she can get the house that she loves? Will Caleb get his inheritance and then divorce Ally? I enjoyed this story where “enemies” become lovers very quickly. The speed of their relationship was a little too quick and they agree to marry in a day. It makes for a fun story but what will when they get to know each other better? I loved the epilogue, it was the perfect ending for their story.

An enemies to lover HEA feels. This book has super steamy and spicy sex scenes. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    I thought that this was a great book. I loved the bickering between Ally and Caleb. These two are have some red hot passion but also love. These two are great together. I loved the connection and the chemistry between these two and how Alley is no afraid to lay into Caleb or how Caleb loves to shut Ally up! These is not a lot of drama but there is some but I think that it just brings Ally and Caleb closer. I really enjoyed this book so I would recommend it and Ms. Wylder's other books!

After a hot steamy encounter, he gives her a chance of a life time and when she accepts it makes for a hot, steamy romance read that was sweet and naughty. I loved their chemistry and instant heat level that blossoms to so much more.

    Very good romance I really enjoyed this romance thanks to these characters: Ally is disgusted to discover that the house of her family that she wanted to buy, has been sold and when she meets the new owner, Caleb, her intervention is more than shattering for him . Caleb needs someone to solve a family problem and he's going to use Ally so each of them can get what they want. The story is hot, but also tender, and a little bit funny. It is a pity, however, that it is so short and the part on Caleb' Very good romance I really enjoyed this romance thanks to these characters: Ally is disgusted to discover that the house of her family that she wanted to buy, has been sold and when she meets the new owner, Caleb, her intervention is more than shattering for him .

    Such a sweet love story. I loved her determination and drive and how she taught him to appreciate life. It was a delight to see an author focus on the positives in a story and not dwell on so much negatives. You gave enough to provide their backstory but not overwhelm us. We all know there is plenty of negative in our lives and that is part of what shapes us as it shaped them but that focusing on the positives in our lives is a choice we make.

    Wowzers :O I absolutely crave short, sweetly savage serenades written by insanely talented artists which is the number one reason why I can't access Penny Wylder's romances fast or often enough. This love story touched something deeper within me. I connected with both characters on such a visceral, cellular level that I felt true sadness at its conclusion due to wanting so much more. Not only is this a MUST READ for all lovers of fast hard love stories, it is also a MUST READ AGAIN & AGAIN!
