Becky Holgate's lost her focus. It's complicated...she didn't mean to fall in love with another woman's guy. How could she be a matchmaker for other people if all she could think about was her own heart? Determined to ignore her growing infatuation, she set her sight on building her career. Only Reed Amwell was making it hard to concentrate; every encounter left her breathless.

Reed didn't mean to fall for the curvy girl, but she was carefree, silly, and fresh. Her soft curves and playful heart had him questioning his current relationship. Could he be with the wrong girl? He needed to figure it out fast, because his wedding day was getting closer by the minute. 

With a laugh-out-loud best friend, an insane cat, and a business to run, Becky Holgate didn't have time for guys like Reed Amwell...until time was running out.

(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)

     This was a fun BBW read.  Yet, there was a lot of truth in the emotions and fear a BBW or any woman can go through when dating or falling for someone they feel is out of their league.
     Becky Holgate is a young mid-twenties woman who is in, a way too boring job.  She has always seen herself as a business owner ever since she was a little girl.  So, with the help of her BFF, Samantha, a dog groomer she’s putting it into action.
     You see she wants to be a plus size match maker.  She can’t get a loan from the bank.  So, Sammy being a mobile business, out in the community, starts networking on Becky’s behalf.  She meets Reed Amwell, the fiancĂ© of a regular Jessica.  He’s brought their dog to be groomed today.
     Reed does website designs for a job.  He does photography out of his home.  He said he would do two sittings for two dog grooming’s, he tells Sammy to give his card to Becky.  When Becky calls him, she falls in pure lust with his voice alone.  When she’s told he’s engaged, she scales it way back.
     When she arrives at his home his fiancĂ© answers the door.  Of course, she is model perfect and doesn’t seem to understand why she would be asking for Reed.  She says she has an appointment.  The pep Becky was feeling goes way down.  Then, Jessica calls out for Reed.  When he comes to the door he is all smiles.  Like a crazy school girl with a crush, she is smiling too.  Then, she sees Jessica sizing her up and she loses it.
     So, when she goes to sit in front of the camera and he sees her through the lens it’s gone.  The sparkle the shine in her eyes and the soul of who she is was gone.  She was stiff and rigid.  When he looks again he sees lettuce in her teeth.  He finally has to tell her.  She wants to die but after retreating to the bathroom to get it taken care of.  She returns.
     They end up laughing and having a good laugh over it.  They can’t stop thinking about each other.  But it’s Reed who keeps finding ways to meet up with her.  When she figures out it’s not just for business she puts a stop to it.  She tells him no way she can be with him when he’s engaged to another woman.  Especially after he almost kisses her.  She thought that was the last of him.  Especially, with him being so gorgeous and well her being her.

     See what can or how this plays out.  Sammy makes this book twice as funny Jessica is a winner from hell.  Reed is a man a BBW everywhere hopes for.  I give this: 4 stars.  Free from Amazon.  Follow us at
