Publisher's Summary

Adele Blackthorne is a big girl, a curvy chick. She knows it, and she's been picked on all her life because of it. But she's gotten to the stage where she doesn't care. She may be Rubenesque, but she's healthy, too. Much healthier than the mean girls at the leisure center that point and stare and say spiteful things about her. Adele rises above it all, and simply enjoys her secretive glances at the center's hunky lifeguard, Oliver.
As the bullying of Adele becomes worse, Oliver finds it increasingly difficult not to intervene. He doesn't want to get into trouble with work, but equally he can't stand to see Adele treated in such a horrible way. Especially since he doesn't agree that she's fat and unattractive. He thinks she's a seriously sexy woman, and would like to get to know her better. Much better.

Uplifting story where the sexy girl is big, buxom and upbeat, the skinny girls are mean and do not attract the lifeguard.

Adele, she was strong, self assured and refused to let mean girls get to her.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oliver the tongued tied hero become extremely out spoken and protective of his size 20 girlfriend. It makes a great change to see that not all heroines are a size 10

Short in length and heavy on delightful content!

This book is a snapshot into the start of a wonderfully sexy, fun and mature relationship. Interestingly, it doesn't begin from first sight. The two characters, Adele and Oliver are already aware of each other, attracted to each other and equally unsure of themselves. They both know what they like, know what they want and suffer from a slight lack of confidence. I suppose sometimes we see ourselves so clearly that we miss the parts of ourselves that are truly amazing. This is definitely true of the protagonists.

That said, this short, easy-to-listen-to story is a celebration of attraction in all its forms and a poignant criticism of today's standards of beauty. It is delightfully funny and remarkable real in its approach to insecurities, sex and the preconceived expectations of beauty. For such a short story to do all this and not miss out on keeping-it-real (and a little messy) sex is pretty incredible.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
