Product Description

Product Description

Twenty-six-year-old Rose Devlin may shop in the plus-size department, but she's never had a problem attracting men--with disastrous consequences. Recovering from her latest mistake, Rose has sworn off casual sex and moved to California to grow up, help her best friend, and make something of herself.

When Rose asks the cute-but-geeky guy next door to help her land a job in high tech, she never expects to unearth his quiet strength, stunning accomplishments--and hidden talents.

With a secret in her own past, Rose tries to keep her distance, but she finds that nerdy Mark isn't so nerdy when the lights go out. And that maybe, just maybe, she's not too grown up to risk one more disaster...

NEW TO THE OAKLAND HILLS ROMANCE SERIES? You can start with any of the novels! Each book is its own story with a HEA ending.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 19 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Chose this because of good reviews. So glad I didn't pay for it. OK for a start but didn't expect it to deteriorate into so much gratuitous sex. Hadn't much to say and not terribly well written. Subject matter could have been dealt with so much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and sexy 22 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this. I loved the main character, a gutsy curvy girl who is not afraid to live life on her own terms. She was very believable and I wanted her to succeed. True, the geek next door was unlike any geek I have met but then this a book not real life. The perfect holiday read.

By Katie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really really liked this book. Well written and researched without going into tedious detail. All the characters are believable and real and the story is well rounded, sad at times and funny at others. Have already recommended this book to my friends. Have a go - if you like HEA you will like this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing change from your normal romance 12 May 2013
By JL
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Big girls go! It makes a nice change not to have the typical gorgeous girl and dark handsome hunk. Instead we have a larger than life girl in more ways than one and a geek of a guy. Great romance and very witty and funny at times. Worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD READ FOR THE BEACH 9 Oct 2014
By MrsOsborne2013 VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book not realising it was the second book in the series until coming to do this review, so if you haven't read the first book you can still get into this.

A good book to me is one where you instantly connect with the characters and you remember them long after the book has finished. Such it is with this book. Although I bought it as light chick lit for reading on the beach, I was pleasantly surprised at how the story drew me in and how much I cared about the people.

It's a classic boy meets girl story, although the boy is a geek recluse living with his mum and the girl is jobless and staying with a pregnant friend who has just been dumped. You can probably predict the ending but it's the getting there that's good!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Raunchy
The best line in this book was " Get a room". A perfectly good story was ruined with graphic sexual references. There was no need for all of the hanky panky. Read more
