5.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt and lusty romance with a BBW heroine! 2 May 2011
By Lynne Murray - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Jessy Monroe struggles with self-esteem issues and her growing attraction to Michael Forrester, the man who literally rescued her from a storm. She believes, and many have told her, that because her body size is large, no man will find her attractive. Seeing the relationship bloom between these two well-drawn characters as winter storms rage outside is one of the many pleasures of this book. Despite Jessy's original shyness things heat up to some sizzling scenes that lead on to a satisfying conclusion. A fun read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, weak, and AWFUL 22 Feb 2012
By SunFlowers - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're a plus sized girl who likes reading about other similar women and falling in love well this is NOT the story for you. If you like feeling bad about yourself and reading about spineless, weak men then please do buy this book.

This is a $0.99 story if I've ever read on.

The hero is one of THE most weak men I've ever read in my life. There's been a couple but this guy is moseying on down the rankings.

The hero is this lumberjack looking guy who's all sweet as pie but with a harpy ex wife who's a total biotch and THE worst mother. Extremely vicious and cruel and this weak, spineless, sniveling "man" just lets her attack her own child...HIS child too and degrade her weight and looks in front of a stranger?

I HATE reviews like the 4 previous. Obviously all shills. There's some good in this book but the bad and awful outweigh it ten fold and the fact that these "reviews" just write miniscule glowing reviews should have told me this book was crap.

THIS is the gist of this story:

Heroine: Woe is me, I'm fat, I'm leaving because you can't have feelings for a fat girl like me.
Hero: No, baby I love you/like you/care about you come home with me
Heroine: "Okay" she whispers. Next scene, the same thing and over and over.

I can't tell you how many times this was the EXACT scene. It got to be too many to count. There's insecurities then there's this pathetic excuse for a heroine. Then the hero is just as bad.

Can't believe it's $5. It's honestly not even worth a dollar. This is a complete freebie worthy book because it's not worth giving money for.

RUN, don't walk AWAY from this God awful story and it's high price tag for crap.

I don't give very many reviews but I had to on this one. It is a great book that makes you feel good. I am going to reread this one ! I don't give alot of the book away because you should read it for yourself. Jesse is has been delt a tough hand and Michael helps her see just how wonderful life can be.
