Lucy Felthouse knows what curvy gals want and she gives it to them with this fantastic contemporary short. Adele Blackthorne is a modern woman who is healthy and happy in her larger than average size body and I love the fact that she doesn’t stoop to the level of the mean girls. She is so courageous to face the ridicule she does and yet she continues to exercise for herself even though the comments are quite hurtful. I admire her strength and character; she is a genuinely pleasant woman who deserves so much better. Oliver is so adorable. I think sometimes women forget that men can often be as shy as we are. I love that he’s really not all Alpha-male but he is still so masculine and utterly charming. I loved how the story just flowed so smoothly and I felt as if I had so much invested in this couple’s future as their connection was so poignant. Their attraction and the culmination of it was skillfully done. I’m looking forward to reading many more stories by this author as well as reading this fabulous one over and over again.
Adele Blackthorne faces the taunting of the mean girls whenever she sets foot in the leisure center. Even though she’s a bigger girl she’s healthy and physically active plus she will endure the spitefulness of the gossips if it means exercise and getting a glimpse of Oliver the sexy lifeguard. Oliver hates that Adele is being bullied but admires her forgiving nature and her curvy body. Now it’s time for him to show her.
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 might be Rubenesque, but she’s healthy too. Much healthier than the mean girls at the leisure center who 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.
