Ellis Garrett is dumping her critical boyfriend, opening a plus-size clothing store, and starting a blog—all to spread the word that fashion shouldn’t require a size-two body, and happiness should allow for the occasional cupcake. Or two. But is indulging fantasies about her sister’s long-ago ex, the still-hunky Michael Edwards, biting off more than she can chew?
Mike must be losing his detective’s touch. He doesn’t recognize Ellis when he bumps into her at Size Me Up, and he certainly doesn’t remember his ex-girlfriend’s outspoken sister being so irresistible. Her curves are indeed dangerous—and so is her wit. Could it be that Ellis is his Perfect Fit? One thing’s for sure: Mike will make it his sworn duty to find out…
Ellis has moved back to her home town to open a plus size clothing shop. One day when she is out getting a cookie she happens to bump into her sister’s ex who just happens to be her fantasy man/crush she’s had for years. When Mike doesn’t recognize her Ellis makes it her mission to avoid him and when seeing him to be snide and remind him how he doesn’t remember her. Even though Ellis is pushing Mike and his advances away she can’t help but see the sexy detective as a possible fantasy come to life. While Ellis is trying all she can to derail Mike’s attempts she is also bothered by her ex and his aunt. He feels entitled to her and will do anything he can to make her his again. After Ellis finally let’s Mike in their feelings get tested by her insecurities and Mike’s fear of commitment. Can these two really come together or will Ellis be left on her big fashionable butt.
I really liked this romance. I’ve gotten into the BBW romance genre and I find it really hits its mark. Not only because I am BBW but I think it can resonate with a lot of women who are not the supermodels that a lot of the novels portray. I felt like Sugar Jamison did a wonderful job making Ellis both entertaining and charming while keeping her emotions and insecurities. I also loved that Mike saw so much more than her figure and he even liked her figure. The characters in this book were wonderfully written and very funny. I enjoy when the supporting characters add some comic relief to a story and Colin, Cherry and Belinda did just that. I found that I also liked the bit of suspense that was added in. It gave the story a little spice and really added a nice element. Overall, I liked this story and I cant wait to read more. I think this story will resonate with a lot of women and if not it will at least make them laugh.
