About ON THE PLUS SIDE:
Big girls don’t cry. They go after what they want.
Thanks to her bangin’ curves, Valerie Carmichael has always turned heads-with the exception of seriously sexy Logan Mathis. Just Valerie’s luck that the object of her lust-filled affection is also best friends with her overprotective brother. But Valerie’s determined to get Logan’s attention…even if it means telling a teeny little lie to get a job at his new bar.
Logan can’t remember a time when Valerie didn’t secretly fuel all his hottest fantasies. Now the curvaceous she-devil is working behind his bar, tempting him every damn night. It’s only when he finds Valerie’s naughty things-to-do list that Logan decides to break every rule in the book-by making each red-hot deed a reality.
No one warned them that they were going to fall this hard. And no one warned them that sometimes the smallest secrets can have the biggest consequences.
Miss Riki’s Review:
Gah! I LOVE this book with a thousand and one loves! This series from Alison Bliss is fast becoming one of my all time favorites, and this second book was off-the-charts good. Valerie is the plus-size goddess heroine I’ve been dying to see in romance! It’s unusual to see a full figured woman described as having more than a few extra pounds in a romance novel, and as a plus size girl myself, I can absolutely tell you that representation matters. If plus size Valerie can find love with a dreamy guy like Logan, then so can I! She embraces her curves and is unapologetically sexy in every way.
I live for the brother’s best friend trope, and this book handles it in such an exemplary manner. It is so difficult for Valerie and Logan to admit tot their undeniable attraction, knowing that it would devastate her overprotective brother. And let me tell you, at first you wonder just why Valerie’s brother is so darned protective and might even think that he’s gone overboard, but when you find out his reasoning, your heart will break. It’s so sad! And lovely! And when he finally gets on board with the relationship, it’s wonderful!
Logan, Logan, Logan. *SWOON* Love this hero! the on the page chemistry between him and Valerie is explosive, and I love how he worships her curves at every opportunity.
If you love smart, witty romance with some emotional moments and a lot of heat, you’ll love ON THE PLU SIDE! I cannot wait for the next book in this amazing series!
