Review by Marlene Engel
The last person Ellis thought she’d bump into while buying a cookie was Detective Hot Pants … er, Detective Michael Edwards. Four years ago, Ellis was crushing hard for the hot cop, but instead of reciprocating her feelings he went for her pretty and skinnier sister! Now, face to face with Mike, the memories of rejection come rushing back. To add insult to injury, Mike doesn’t even recognize her! However, he does find her snarky attitude and curvy body wildly attractive. But Ellis isn’t going to let Mike off the hook that easily!
Previously working as an attorney, Ellis realized that her true calling is helping women with non-typical bodies find stylish, flattering clothing. A plus-sized woman herself, Ellis knows how difficult it is to go into a store and be able to wear something right off the rack. At her store, if you can’t find it in your size, Ellis will personally alter it to fit your body! Ellis loves her job and relishes in the fact that she is able to help women feel sexy and secure with their bodies. Now if only her love life were as fulfilling as her work life!
It seems everywhere Ellis turns, Mike isn’t far behind. No matter if it’s at her job or at trivia night at the local bar, they keep bumping into each other. Mike tries so hard to break down the walls that Ellis has built up, but until he figures out how they know each other Ellis refuses to budge! Will Ellis surrender her heart to Mike? Or will she continue to keep her heart a prisoner to his love?
If you ask me what I look for most in a book, I would say: humor, a great story, fun characters and food! Let me tell you, this book has all of those things and more! I just loved this book and couldn’t put it down. My only complaint is that the book had to end. I know, I know, all good things must come to an end. But I just wanted this book to go on forever. Yes, it was that good! If you haven’t read this book, you MUST go out and get it. If you’re like me, you will have it read in less than two days!
