Review

After watching every romance her mother ever had fall apart Lorelei does not believe in love. After the first night Kaden knows he wants more from Lorelei, but can he get past her jaded heart and give her the love he has for her…?

This second novella in the Oak Hollow series is just as good as the first one and deserves 5 stars. I also love the fact that Lorelei is more confident in her own skin and does not regard herself as fat where others might according to her. Applause to Ms. Stevens for letting Lorelei be comfortable with herself and confident in her sexuality, even to open the door in only a towel and then call Kaden to find her waiting naked on her bed! Go Lorelei!

I love that Stevens makes Kaden strong enough to take sex off the table to allow them to get to know each other better as Lorelei is fine with sex and not so good with the feelings part of the relationship. The sexy pediatrician even takes care of her when she gets sick with a summer cold. Trouble comes when he wants to move the relationship further and move in together. To find out more you have to read the rest of the book. It is worth it. They are both stubborn and sparks fly and Stevens leaves us to the end to see how and if they resolve their issues. I highly recommend this plus size romance for those of you who believe love comes in all sizes.

Will you want to read this book? Do you believe plus sizes are sexy, women can be afraid of relationships and men can fall in love almost at first sight, or you want to believe.  You think people can grow and change and men can be both super sexy and romantic or you want to think so… Then this one is right up your alley. Oh, it helps if you like men in kilts with nothing underneath. Did I mention adult fun…?
