This is my first book by this author and this is the author's first book.

This is Bri and Jayce's story.

This story had me laughing out loud which I did not expect. This curvy plus sized lady is unlucky in love. All the men she meets are total frogs!! Then it looks likes she has found the real deal when something goes wrong and it looks like Prince Charming is going to end up as another fog! This is why the roller-coaster of emotions happened for me!

This was a good read with sprinkles of good humour too. An enjoyable read!

I would highly recommend this book.

HASH(0x8e132c24) out of 5 stars The Heroine and Hero Were "Meh" 14 May 2015
By The Fountain Pen Diva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Despite my utter disdain for the cover (which I'll get to later in this review), the author was so professional in her response to my criticism of it (on Goodreads) that out of courtesy to her I went and purchased her book and read it.

Anyone who takes a gander at my READS shelf will notice I have a fondness for strong heroines. In fact, strong and savvy heroines are nonnegotiable. Weak or pity party heroines need not apply. I have to love the heroine as much, or more than I do the hero. Unfortunately Brianna, the heroine in Swirl, was everything that makes me eye roll. She's plus-sized, self-pitying, unlucky in love, and of course she has a best friend who's gorgeous, skinny and fashionable.

I admit it, when women like Emme, Queen Latifah and Tess Munster have been favorites for years, and personally knowing plus-sized burlesque and fetish models, it's really hard to empathize with a character like Brianna who just seems to have a perennial dark cloud over her head. If it wasn't her weight, then it was being young, overeducated and jobless (like a LOT of college grads these days) and having to move back home with the parents (again, like a LOT of college grads these days). I get it, women do deal with body issues, and college grads are struggling financially, but when I'm reading romance, I want a heroine who doesn't spend pages feeling sorry for herself and who acknowledges she's PHAT--Pretty Hot And Tempting. I need a heroine who MAKES things happen.

So the heroine lost me. Her mother wasn't too bad, but the grandmother needed to be GONE!

Then the hero. Jayce (who was Samoan) just didn't do it for me. He was a nice guy who really cared about Brianna, and they'd been friends before anything else. He had his alpha moments, but he was too easily manipulated by his b*tchy wannabe Real Housewife girlfriend. I wasn't quite sure of what to make of a hero who doesn't seem to realize the wrong woman is the one who wants you to do something your heart isn't into. In the Fountain Pen Diva's world, once your a** is dumped, you are GONE! And if there's a surprise pregnancy, I'd want to make sure my rights would be respected, even if it meant getting a lawyer. I did like that Jayce had a really tight knit family.

Overall, this was short, sexy and well-edited. The author had an engaging writing style with lots of humorous and geeky moments, but the characters just didn't work.

Now to my issue with the cover. Publishers, listen up:

I realize authors don't have much of a say in their cover art and that there's a serious lack of professional PoC and interracial cover models in the industry. Be that as it may, the utter whitewash of the heroine on the cover was an insulting bait and switch tactic. I get it, you're trying to sell books. But we Black women and WoC readers want to see ourselves better reflected and we're willing to support companies and authors who get that. And frankly, your attempting to attract a certain readership who probably wouldn't read a book featuring a Black heroine is just bad business.

PLEASE stop catering to the racial troglodytes! After all, they're dying off. The smart money nowadays is to showcase <i>more</i> diversity, not less.

This cover (like far too many in this genre) just screams there's only one acceptable look for Black women and defintely anything around Lupita Nyong'o's shade isn't it. In fact, the only way I figured out the heroine was indeed Black was through a quick read of the Amazon previews where she mentions it.

Newsflash to writers <i>and</i> publishers: Black women come in <i>ALL</i> shades and it would be nice if more books actually REFLECTED that reality rather than catering to limiting societal biases. And whitewashing covers just gets you hashtagged hard on Twitter.

HASH(0x8ce51858) out of 5 stars Nice, vanilla romance; an easy read. 20 Mar. 2015
By C. Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a sweet and pretty mellow love story. I liked the blurb for the book and it sounded promising. I don't generally go for NA Romance, so this is only my second one or so. I generally go for more intense reads, darker reads, paranormal reads, and others. This is what I didn't like and why I gave it 3 stars:
1. The female lead annoyed the crap out of me. She was whiney (imo) most of the time in her conversations in her head with herself, and some of the time when reacting to undesirable situations. She did not strike me as particularly strong and I don't go for those kinds of females. Although she did have a few redeeming moments. She seemed to be constantly having a pity party inside her own thoughts.
2. The cover of the book bothers me considering that the girl is supposed to be a size 16.
3. It didn't grab me and suck me in. I could definitely put it down and I did. It took me 3 days to read it.

I liked:
1. Gram Gram - she adds an interesting dynamic to the story. And some bite!
2. Jayce - buff, sweet, loyal, totally hot.
3. the bestie
4. Keon

Overall, I did like the book. It is an easy read and a cute love story if you're into that sort of thing.

Note: I read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is an honest review but, of course, solely my personal opinion.

I really enjoyed this book, it was well written and pleasantly funny at times. I liked the heroine I saw a lot of myself in her in spite of the fact that she's a little messy, I would never go out in public with no bra, sweats and my hair not combed lol but I guess that was part of what made her real and I actually liked that she wasn't always put together. At times she was a little insecure and nieve esp. about that a**hole Conner but she was an overall likeable character. I really liked Jayce (first time reading a book where the character has my son's name (Jace)). I feel the characters were well developed and I enjoyed seeing Jayce and her relationship evolve from friendship to a relationship.It's not erotica so there were only a few sex scenes but they were nicely done. I couldn't put this book down, often times I might lose interest half way through a book and move on to something else that wasn't the case with this book I was caught up it from the first few pages. I also enjoy when a story just flows and isn't choppy or distracting because of grammatical errors, I caught very few errors. I highly recommend this book! SN: I would love to know what happened with Keon and Kristen there story was interesting and I hope they get their own book, I liked to read more about Keon's PTSD and see if he can tame the free spirited Kristen :-)
HASH(0x8ca3e288) out of 5 stars Simply amazing love story 31 Mar. 2015
By Laura Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I came across this book by accident and I'm so glad I did! Absolutely loved it. Bri and Jayce are well-developed characters. I loved Bri's attitude. She's not a small girl, she's curvy, pretty and out of work having just finished school. Jayce is the owner of Drip Drop Coffee shop. But he could've been a hotshot football player once-upon-a-time. Although, that's not he wants. But his current girlfriend is all about the paycheck and what it can do for her. She's a horrible character. Maybe a bit too cartoonish, but it's all good. Bri has a secret. She's crushing on Jayce really bad and hates that he's with a brainless bimbo.

As the characters move forward, you realize that there is a time and place for everyone. Including Jayce and Brianna, but getting there is not the easy part. Watching it unfold is breathtaking.
