4 out of 5 for Hotness.

Size Matters was exactly the type of book I needed when I started reading it.

It was written with a great voice, was smooth and easy to read as well as being funny enough to have me chuckling - out loud I might add, which doesn’t happen too often - and had the perfect amount of steam.

To be honest I was a bit dubious about how the book was going to turn out when it started with the heroine having sex with a complete stranger, without even knowing what he looked li

Have you ever thought Bigfoot could be sexy with his massive size? (Not me for sure;) and don’t forget the size of the feet Oh my, ! You ladies know what they say about the feet size, so yes! Size Matters. This book was refreshing sexy creative and fun. You get a Bigfoot, a Yeti and a Fairy. I do hope Stephanie writes more. This is a quick read, but don’t let that fool you. The author doesn’t leave anything out. So if your in need of a quick hot paranormal read around 80 pages, this one just mig ...more

I very seldom give a short book a 5 star rateing, I feel if this book would have been longer that is exactly what I would have rated it. I REALLY liked this short story A LOT so I'm making my rating a 4 1/2 stars! If you like paranormal stories with a big hulking yummy man and a smart and whitty heroine not to mention SCORCHING HOT love scenes then I would suggest you give this book a try. I'm sure glad I did. BTW Size really did matter for it gave the heroine extreme pleasure :)

Favorite Quote: Especially when she wrapped one hand around his cock and realized her fingers didn’t meet. Thank you, Goddess of…well, whatever goddess handled huge guys with accessories to match.

Carrie Benton loves her job working for the Weekly News Journal. So what if they cover crop circles and big foot sightings, serious journalism bores her and she has fun covering these types of stories. Speaking of big foot, she finds herself in a massive snow storm trying to get out to a site where big

The blurb of this book is what caught my eye, there are loads of books about vampires, shifter, faeries, angels, demons etc but really how many PNR/erotica books to you see about Big Foot? NONE! This is the first one I have seen!

So I finally got the book and can exclusively tell you that Big Foot.... is a guy called Tim! Now this may seem disappointing but it isn't, all 7ft of Tim is just plain hot, and not only hot but really sweet as well. I found myself really liking him and couldn'

This is a very short, very steamy hot sexy read. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. Plenty of sexy good smut in these few pages. I needed a smutty read. I had gone through a smutless reading drought that included a few too many virginal historical, young adults who was keeping their pants on and Zombie books. Not only did this book provide me with a good dose of hot steamy sex, but it contains plenty of plot and some conflict for our lovers to overcome.

Because sometimes a girl just needs a little light PNR to make her evening.

I enjoyed the nature of this story ... we weren't living in a world where everything paranormal was an accepted fact. And it wasn't some alternate type reality. No ... it was the real world, where a tabloid journalist who chases Bigfoot stories for a living, actually runs into the real thing ... only he's not at all what you'd expect.

It was a fun read. Lighthearted and humorous. The charcters were engaging. There w

My opinion in short:
Size Matters is a fun read, not only is it sexy as hell, it also made me laugh out loud several times. This novella has all the ingredients I love, packed in an incredibly small amount of pages. It has humor, very steamy scenes, a kick-ass heroine, an uber hot and strong male protag, sweetness, magic, a little bit of conflict, an interesting supernatural world a

Wow...this book was something special. It took me completely by surprise. I knew I would like it like I did every other book written by Ms Julian but I wasn't prepared for this. You ask why? I finished a book yesterday at 12:30 AM and was a bit giddy and couldn't sleep. So I thought read a bit of this book before sleep and yes I did find sleep after I finished it. I couldn't stop. My eyes dropped close once or twice but I had to finish it.

I didn't like the writing style here. Somehow the plot wasn't exactly straight forward, in a subtle way, in a way that I did not appreciate.

The plot is slightly cheesy (he's bigfoot) but it didn't need to be and it could have worked, especially with the fact that his "friends" come over. But it was still cheesy. And the hero had an annoyingly low confidence level.

Didn't really like it, even though it has a cover that suggests I'd be all over it.... darn!

I am a mega geek for all things Bigfoot and cryptozoology related, so when I stumbled upon this series I was stoked. My only complaint is that I want a full length novel. Everything else was beyond perfect. Even with the novella status, Size Matters is an impeccable story with plenty of laughs and enough steamy scenes to have your panties in a bundle.

First and foremost, this story is incredibly well written. Stephanie Julian has an amazing writing style. It is hilarious. I laughed out loud thro

Very cute. I liked the H&h and how they interacted. Tim is just… a really, really nice guy! Honest, passionate, considerate. Large. Plenty confident, but no alph-hole/caveman bullshit, which I appreciated— at 7ft tall (!) dude doesn't need to overcompensate. Carrie’s a fairly sensible heroine. Young and bubbly, but not dumb. And I liked her confidence, her ease with having an opinion. Dialogue felt modern and natural for the most part.

Sex scenes were fairly hot. Loved loved loved

Carrie Benton works for a newspaper that reports the news that other newspapers tend not to cover. Things like alien sightings, Lock Ness monsters, and Big Foot. She’s a fun girl and she enjoys her job. But when her boss sends her out in the middle of a snow storm to take photos for story on recent Big Foot sightings she ends having an accident.

Carrie Benton is a reporter for the Weekly News Journal. The types of stories she covers involve headlines with the words aliens, ghosts and chupacabra in them. Her latest assignment lands her in the middle of a snow storm and after a car accident, in the arms of a very handsome and very big man. Tim Sattizahn can't get enough of the tall redhead he just saved. She is everything he wants in a woman except for the fact her boss sent her out looking for bigfoot.

Her next leads her into the Pennsylvania forests to investigate a possible Bigfoot sighting. After her car decides to take a dirt nap she runs into Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome, Tim Sattazahn.

Claudette's Review

This is the second book I’ve read by this author and certainly won’t be the last. I was thoroughly entertained by this novel’s humour and the character of Carrie Benton the journalist sent out to write a story about Bigfoot. The first either the reader or ‘Bigfoot’ sees or hears of her, she is stomping through the snow and enthusiastically cursing her boss, her colleague whose illness is the reason she’s the one stuck in a remote part of Pennsylvania with a broken car, the sno

I enjoyed it. I liked that 'Bigfoot' is actually a clan of red haired giants who perpetuated the bigfoot legend to profit from it and are related to the yeti clan who again perpetuated the Yeti myth, not to mention he's friends with a fae and they refer to themselves as the fringe which is appropriate as they remain on the fringe of society hiding what they are from humans. He's actually a shifter who transforms into a red bear and his cousin transforms into a white bear. His secret is out when ...more

This is one of those books that I saw so many positive reviews for that after reading yet another glowing one from Fiction Vixen I decided enough was enough. I had to read this book and see what all the fuss was about. I am so glad that I did. It was the best $4.95 I've spent in a long time! Once I started reading this book, and couldn't stop. I had it read in 45 minutes flat.
It's rare that a book captivates me from the first sentence, but this one did. It had me laughing and feeling all tingly

My Review:
Vanessa, the Jeep Diva, has been reviewing a bunch of Stephanie Julian books this week (go check out her reviews, they're really fabulous) and we got to chatting about this book yesterday. So, last night when I was in the mood for something a little bit different than the book I was reading, I pulled this one out of my Kindle TBR pile. It was a perfect change of pace. This book is just pure fun...and makes me hope that it's kind of true.

Tamara’s Review:

Are you looking for a story full of sizzling sex and undeniable humor? Then Size Matters is the perfect solution.

Ms. Julian has created a wonderful novella that has plenty of both. I absolutely adored Carrie. This author has created such a character in her that if Carrie had been a real live person I’d want to have her as my best friend. Not only is Carrie feisty and out-going, she such a down to earth woman that nothing seems to faze her. Not even the fact that her lover, Tim tu

I really enjoyed this novella from Ms. Julian. It’s a quick read full of fun and smokin’ romance. The mythology is very original - I can’t say that I’ve ever read a “Bigfoot romance” before. As corny as it may sound, the story is actually very smart and well written. I enjoyed the pop-culture references (especially since I’m a sci-fi geek) and the thoughtful dialogue between Carrie and Tim.

Although it’s a shorten-length story, the characters are well-developed and interesting. Carrie is an inde
Carrie Benton works for the Weekly New Journal, which reports about UFO sitings, the bat boy and all sorts of other oddities. When her boss sends her out to a remote area in Pennsylvania to get photos of the reported Bigfoot, she didn't actually think she'd find Bigfoot. Especially not in the form of sexy Tim Sattizhan.

Size Matters is a hot little read. Fast and tantalizing. This is the first in a new series and it's definitely a great beginning. Stephanie Julian does an excellent job at world b

Yes, size matters.
Of course.

Don't worry, Carrie, because Tim's size isn't going to be the problem. He's Bigfoot. No, girl, I didn't say he has big feet, I said he's BIGFOOT. Huge, eh-heh, difference there, dear. It's a good thing you're well-acquainted with weird stuff! I bet his cousin Andy (the Yeti), and friend, Fry (the fairy), won't faze you one bit either. You're awesome that way.

Seriously, get over it and get your dream guy bigfoot!

Fun, original,

I have to admit I didn't want to start this book because of its cheezy title: Size Matters??? C'mon ;-)

But this was an easy and entertaining read and I wish Mrs Julian writes the story about Tim's cousins: Andy and Fry someday.

And I'm thankful for a female charachter who doesn't play coy and shy. Carrie wants sex with Tim and she's not playing hard to get. And I got tired of all the tiny lush bossomy females. Thank you Stephanie for a long legged, lean and athletic female!

Very quick read but addicting. After the first chapter I was like wow no back story getting straight to it huh? But there actually was a storyline and after a bit of the story I was like ok let's get back to it then. Not the best scenes I've read but, again, very addicting, sped through it. Would definitely continue reading the series - actually wish this one has been much longer! (Pun intended)

Size Matters is like sex in the morning--hot and focused, short but not without lots of rumpling of the covers. I really enjoyed it, and it definitely left me wanting to know more about these Bigfoot Yeti tribes. I can see this becoming a very interesting series. It doesn't hurt that I have a love for big tough guys with sweet insides. Please say there will be more soon!

Bear Shifters!! I haven't come across a bear shifter that I didn't love. With that being said, I wanted more, more, more! This book is too short..hence 4 stars.

I would recommend Bunny and the Bear by Eve Langlais for all bear shifter lovers! Oh, and The Mane Squeeze by Shelly Laurenston too!

Another great story from SJ.
This is a short story about a guy at a loss in life and a women just kinda going through the motions. A snow storm brings them together but can it keep them there?

SJ does another wonderful job giving great details,feelings and emotions in just a few words.

Enjoyed this short story. Out of all the paranormal stories out there, I don't think I've read any about Bigfoot.
I would have liked for the story to have been longer, but a good read none-the-less.
