5.0 out of 5 stars Not My Usual Read, but..Magnificent Story!
Such a Delight to Experience the life of Kaitlin, as she ambles to an intimate Western picnic, or scrapes the sky in a magnificent jet all while trying to decide if these Soul Mates are really what she needs or wants. I thought that I knew where this plot was heading as I consumed this page turner, but I will save that you to find out. This is outside my usual reading category, but I am glad that I took a chance to enjoy this delightful, intriguing romance. Even though she describes herself as a "larger and lovely" woman, I never got the feeling that this impeded the plot for this story. I enjoyed it to the tune that it kept me up until finishing it. My wife is reading it as I write this review, and she has been under the covers, with Wine, Fruit,by her side and Smiles on her face as she nods her head, and softly agrees with Kaitlin's Dilemma . Waiting for the next edition.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Fast, and Delightful Read.
If you don' have a lot of time to read and you like fun upbeat romantic stories this book is for you. Kaitlin is a girl that many of us can relate to in all kinds of ways. She is very down to earth and likeable. I laughed out loud as she manages to get through some uncomfortable situations, literally. I am really looking forward to what happens next.
5.0 out of 5 stars Read it in one sitting.
This book’s subject is something many of us think about and possibly even toy with these days: online dating. Being alone is really okay but being alone all the time is sometimes hard to deal with. The main character here goes through a number of events that could be all too common with those seeking companionship in the online dating world. And the author does provide some good advice to those just starting to stick their toes in the water. This is book one of a series. I recommend this book as it was an enjoyable read.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Easy Read.
I really enjoyed this book and I think most women will be able to empathise with the main character Kaitlyn. It was an easy fun story with just the right amount of drama and romance. Perfect for a rainy afternoon along with tea and chocolate...
5.0 out of 5 stars Chicken Piccata, Ice Cream and Dating.
One thing this book didn't come with is accompanied food and wine. It's a page turning story, Kaitlin is on her adventure and we set to be her audience, such a big pleasure. This book made me hungry all along my read, and I need to find some chicken piccata and ice cream to be my book companion now. Good read, great atmosphere, and so real.
5.0 out of 5 stars I don't read romance books, because I blush easily.
But, this was recommended by a friend and so I gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. I was quickly caught up in the story and even though I thought I could see where it was going, it was a fun read. Wondering who the BBW would end up with at the end. I kind of knew who she would end with, but the author threw a curve at the end that I didn't see coming. If you like romance without the blatant sex, this is fun story. Highly recommended.
