Susie and Maxie were good for Cherry, except for one thing: Giving her advice to sleep with a prostitute.
That was six feet BELOW good advice and morality. What kind of real friends do that?!
Annabelle should have been throttled by her mother in front of everyone, but I have a feeling that was done, as they say, 'off camera.'
The things that I take offense to were the insane use of vulgarity in just about every sentence! The constant streaming of thoughts regarding sex - I get its a romance novel, but build the love on something more substantial, good grief - and the flaky attempt to include a gay person in the story.
Reality doesn't always have to be in every single story!!!! A lot of proofreading was needed.
And what's with everyone of Ms. Verdenius' characters loving Diet Coke and cats?! Don't get me wrong, I love cats, but do they have to be in EVERY story? Just asking.
Other than that, I did like this story.
Very sweet and romantic and entirely believeable and easy to relate to.
The writers style is easy to follow and her story telling abilities are beyond awesome.
Laugh out loud moments, some easy flirty banter and some spicy sexy scenes.
Cherry is lovable and has some fiesty in her that eventually comes out.
Rick is a great character and had some really good lines
As a couple I really enjoyed how they grew and the akwardness of Cherry and the assertiveness of Rick. They complimented each other.
All up a really sweet story that is thoroughly engaging from start to finish. I will be continuing on with this series
For the plot: Cherry is a plus-sized, 35 year old virginal nurse with a poor self image. At the suggestion of some friends, she calls an escort service to deflower her. Rick is a doctor who spends the evening getting schnockered with a friend and walks into the wrong hotel room, into the arms of Cherry, who thinks he is her "escort". After a night of shared pleasure, Cherry sneaks away and Rick's left alone in the bed, lusting after the lush woman from the night before. When he finds her, there are some questions to be answered ... but hopefully they'll lead her to happily ever after.
As of the first page, I knew this was not an American author (which was not a problem, but an observation) and made me immediately curious to see what unique things/ words would be included in the book that I didn't know... and there were quite a few. You can decipher most of the terms based on context clues, but here are just a few that I bookmarked on my Kindle (which I was glad to have so I could use the built-in dictionary to look up some words).
- Obs chart - observation chart (i.e. the thing the doctor looks at when you're in the hospital and they come spend 30 seconds with you for a charge of $500.. that thing). This made sense after I looked it up, but it still didn't quite click for me while reading.
- Arvo - afternoon
- Blotto - drunk
- Iced chocolate - like a Starbucks frappe but made with chilled hot chocolate instead of coffee.
I don't know the background of the author, but, as a plus-sized woman myself, I can honestly say that she's captured some of the hardships of being heavy - both in regard to the inner turmoil and the external cruelties inflicted by some people. Even the simple challenges of life, like shopping for a nice evening dress. There were many times I felt Cherry's pain in whatever given situation she was in. The story arc was well thought, and I was so happy that the conflicts weren't repetitive - you know, having the same fight over and over and over, just in different settings.
As someone else mentioned, I think the cover does the book a disservice. When you read the book, you can tell that someone with skill and a message spent a lot of time trying to get this story right.. and they did... but the cover doesn't convey that. It sort of makes the book seem like it'll be cheap or of lesser quality than it is. Don't be deceived, buy this book!
Overall, a good read about a sweet couple that I expect I'll read again. Well worth the cost of the book. I'm anxious to see if the "Big Girls Lovin'" series has any future additions.
It would be hard to pick a favorite between those three. I highly recommend you buy them. I just read the sample from The Virgin Sex Queen and am not sure what to do. It's a hit or miss with this author but I've enough hits that I'm willing to fork out the hefty download price.
