WHEN YOU’RE A big girl,there’s more of you to love

Cherri has often wished she were thin and graceful like a ballerina instead of being a six-foot-tall blonde with curves that require serious caution. Surely a charming Irishman like her new boss Colin, with his throaty brogue and to-die-for bod, would never go for someone like Cherri. Unless maybe he’s looking for the exact opposite of a delicate lass?

When Colin hired Cherri to work in his furniture-restoration shop, he had his eyes, first and foremost, on her artistic talents. But now he can’t help but see Cherri for the lush, spirited beauty that she is…and, soon enough, he finds himself mixing business with pleasure. But Cherri turns out to be more vulnerable than she appears. Is she in need of more than Colin can give? Or could it be that a feeling stronger than lust has him thrown for a curve?

My Impressions

For starters I am jumping into this series. I have never read the first book so was not sure what to expect, but found that this book stood nicely on its own. This is a great coming of age type of story, at least for Cherri. Although I will admit that Cherri starts out appearing this strong, got it together female lead, then seems to have all her old emotional baggage pour out the rest of the book which was a little of putting. I did love seeing a story for once that has a plus size women with a built, sexy, established man, instead of the other way around. I enjoyed the Collin character. He is smart, has a womanizer past, creative, strong and sensitive.

This book is funny and witty and has a very forward loveable grandmother to boot. The characters are likeable, but definitely need to work on some communication skills.
