Good story with a moral about being comfortable with yourself!
I generally am not too overly fond of books where the heroine is a BBW. Though I have been fat and have been thin in my life, I have always felt sexy when I was thin and uncomfortable when fat so I just happen to like reading about smaller women or when weight isn’t mentioned. I have seen some of the previous reviews of this book and they mentioned not liking how much it mentioned that the heroine was fat, and at first I felt the same. However the author dealt with that in a nice way, when Alicia’s friend got on her about talking negatively about herself that way. She realized if she didn’t want other people referring to her like that, then she needed to stop thinking of herself that way.
When Alicia begins to find out how much her boss Dante’s wickedly hot billionaire brother Cesare truly wants her, she starts to see herself differently than she has in the past. Cesare and Alicia go through a sort of battle of wills since they want each other but she is an employee of the firm and technically off limits. She loses a bit of weight during that time, not enough to make her thin, but she is more comfortable with herself as a person. I liked the story and the attraction between the two main characters and the way the romance grew was totally hot.
There were some spelling and grammatical errors like a few missing words here and there so the book definitely could use better editing. Though overall it was a good read and a good storyline. I could see that Alicia’s sister Bethany was being set up for Dante since they said he was too old for her, then it kept being mentioned that she hadn’t met him yet since he didn’t come home for Christmas or a few other events when he was dating that gold digger from Texas. So I want to read that book also.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
