We propose a novel enhancement mechanism of the curvature perturbations in

the nonminimal derivative coupling inflation model with a coupling parameter

related to the inflaton field. By considering a special form of the coupling

parameter as a function of the inflaton, a period of ultra-slow-roll inflation

can be realized due to the gravitationally enhanced friction, and the resulting

power spectrum of the curvature perturbations has a sharp peak, which is large

enough to produce the primordial black holes. Under this mechanism, we can

easily obtain a sharp mass spectrum of primordial black holes around specific

masses such as $mathcal{O}(10)M_odot$, $mathcal{O}(10^{-5})M_odot$, and

$mathcal{O}(10^{-12})M_odot$, which can explain the LIGO events, the

ultrashort-timescale microlensing events in OGLE data, and the most of dark

matter, respectively.
