The Big, Not-So-Small, Curvy Girls, BBW Romance, Dating Agency

Reviewed by Nancy Crocker


Becky Holgate wants to start her own Internet dating service for BBW. Her good friend Samantha who runs a pet grooming service, barters with one of her clients in exchange for photographs for Becky. When she meets Jaw-dropping-drool- worthy Reed Amwell she is head over heels. But he is engaged to be married to model worthy Jessica, and Becky does not go after another woman's man. No matter how "H O T" he may be.

Reed might be engaged to Jessica, but he can't get Becky off his mind. And he has to admit there has been something just missing from his relationship with Jessica lately. Something he just can't put his finger on. He started questioning everything and the more he runs into Becky the more he is convinced Jessica is the wrong girl for him.

I thought the author did a good job on describing the characters, I got the attraction between these two. But I questioned Reed being able to be totally loyal to one woman down the road. I was happy to see Becky walk away while Reed was still engaged, and stood firm until he was free. I thought a little to much time was spent on Reed not being attracted to curvy women, stating it once would have worked for me.

While I had a couple of issues with the story working out. I have to admit there were more than a few really funny lines in this book, some maybe inappropriate, but still very funny. I had tears at times I was laughing so hard. A few of them centered around one "horny - crazed" kitten named Bella who just could not leave a stuffed rabbit alone. 

This book was good for a number of laughs. If you are stressed this might give you some relief from your problems. But it did miss on a few other points. Still an enjoyable read.

4/5 Stars

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

(NOTE: This is book 1 in a series. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but the series and storyline will continue with book 2 and 3 coming in Fall/Winter 2013)
