I thought this was one of the most memorable moments of the entire book. So begins the food-based relationship between two lost souls trying to connect, one by lovingly preparing food and the other by eating food in Cathryn Novak's debut, Size Matters. He is, and has always been, a ' comfort eater'. The characters and story line were actually pretty good and quite entertaining to read how the pair just continued to get themselves deeper and deeper into their lies which brought about a bit of humor. It was the perfect combination of hilarious, heartbreaking and toe curling sexy. Bliss focused on their dialogue and allowing them to really interact with each other, the story was entertaining and had immense potential.
Thank You to Cathryn Novak for writing a short story that I really enjoyed reading!! Floyd, his house manager, and by a never-ending parade of personal chefs. Sam Cooper can't believe his friend Max. Please keep in mind that many of your readers are over 40! Will her passion for creating meals be what John Frederick has been seeking? Sam and Leah are the focus of this book. Sam has a tendency to speak before thinking and in a total hero move of defending Leah he manages to tell her mother that he and Leah are. I loved how Sam was so quick to defend Leah, even to herself! If Leah had just told Sam that his mysterious behaviour made her think he was not interested because of her weight, he might have understood the need to be honest with her. So I want you to understand going in that Leah from was one of the most relatable characters I have ever encountered.
This book just hit so many feels for me. Last year I was away for a weekend with one Size Matters by Alison Bliss Standalone Romantic Comedy with a Curvy Heroine 4. He has missed out on life other than what he can experience via books and his computer. The first few chapters of the second book in the series, , are included at the end of the book and I think I'll still read that one as Valerie seems much more like the kind of character I would want to read about in a body positive romance. Talk about hilari It feels like eons ago that Ms.
The simplicity of the relatio Oh how I wish this story had been longer. She is sweet and I sympathize with her a lot. If you're slightly smaller than average but good at sex it's probably no big deal, and if you're slightly bigger than average that's great but not life changing.

Although he might not be porn-star-size, penis beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Sam takes matters into his own hands and knocks the fella out. She, however, actually had the discipline to do it! My mom brings up my weight constantly, not to insult me, but because she cares, but it gives me a complex anyway. No Mom, I'm only reading high quality literature, never those smutty books. So when Max hooks up with Valerie, Sam is left with Leah, who is totally his type. I think the biggest problem was the lack of connection between Lexie and John.
The best sex I've had was with an average-sized guy, but his proclivity for oral and other means of making me orgasm far surpassed his penis size. I like the unexpected inclusion of musicals, especially the scene where John delights himself and Lexie, by throwing an elaborate dinner themed to, The King and I. I am so glad that I decided to pick this one up. All in all, I had a damn good time with Size Matters. If book two is even half as good as this one it'll be a blast. John Frederick is a remarkably sweet and sympathetic character that needs to have his back story, and likewise his overeating, explained further. His brain is telling him he does not want to start anything.
John Frederick's needs are simple. Once I read the synopsis, I was drawn in. I received a digital copy of this short novel from She Writes Press via NetGalley. It is as common to have a plus-sized woman be the main character in a romance book, so I am very glad the author decided to do that. He was charming, funny, and thoughtful. If Sam had just told Leah why he was so reticent about getting into a new relationship she might have understood what was going on in his head. The entire book's premise is built on the couple's refusal to communicate with each other.
It was the perfect combination of hilarious, heartbreaking and toe curling sexy. She was dogging her weight again, and it was starting to piss him off. I really liked some of the things Sam said to try to make Leah's family dislike him. Even though it was small in size, but it was big in heart. Leah hides out and avoids any chance of rejection, especially after her last boyfriend left her after she didn't shed the pounds he thought she should. Berkeley, Cathryn did a stint in advertising before devoting the rest of her professional career to public service. It's a sad and realistic way of thinking, but it's not something I want in my head since I struggle with my own body image issues.
This should have been delightful, but I feel like it showcases one of the pitfalls of fake! Over the years, she just decided to let it all go. Enter Lexie Alexander, the latest applicant for that once-again vacant position. I had two major issues with this book. Sam was a good guy at heart, but he really had a knack for sticking his foot in his mouth by saying things that could be taken the wrong way. Lexie knows she's not ready for the hustle-and-bustle of a gourmet kitchen and is looking forward to working as a personal chef.
