I finished Doctor’s Delight (Big Girls Lovin’) last night and wanted to get the review in while the story was still fresh in my mind. So we’ll jump right into the plot summary then I’ll give you my unbiased opinion…well, probably biased cause I’m all for plus sized romances!

We have an extremely insecure 35 year old plus sized woman, Cherry, who has never made love with a man before. She’s lonely and longs for human contact (with a male-type person, of course, and 35 years of celibacy will do tha

Abandoning this dreadful book at 45%. It was okay up until about 5% in... okay in that I was going to continue reading despite the author’s habit of using the most obvious or clichéd turn of phrase in any given situation. A page later I was irritated. A chapter later I was furious.

I cannot stand those creepers who think that wearing you down is an option; who think that women are grateful for any attention so if they become enough of a nuisance you’ll give them what they want... or that you’ll b

Book 1 in the Big Girl’s Lovin’ series

Cherry is getting older and she’s still a virgin. Getting desperate to have her ‘cherry popped’ she contacts Helen at the escort agency, and arranges for a man to meet her at a hotel room. She meets the man there, has wonderful, blow-your-mind sex with him, then pays and leaves while
I loved it, it was my first book for a plus-sized girl and I really liked it.

- Loved the hero, he was soooooo cute when he was with her, and in other reviews I read someone described him like a puppy following her around, which is true, and do you know what other thing is true about him, him being a potential stalker XD I'm glad that he got through t the heroine and they got together, otherwise I don't know what he would have done, cause seriously he was really persistent for someone who met her

Okay, forgive me for being super lazy, but I am going to review all the books in this trilogy in one review, this is to stop boring you with repetition as what I have to say about each book is pretty similar.

The trilogy goes in this order:

A good read, 3 to 3+ overall. Cherry is a massive bundle of insecurity and self-doubt due, in large part, to her plus-sized proportions, and Rick is the dreamy, perfect, and eternally patient hunk who sweeps onto the scene to sweep Cherry off her feet. For an erotic romance, I thought this story was sweet and entertaining, and there were some lively secondary characters thrown into the mix. I'm not rating it higher than a 3/good because that's what it is: a good, comfortable read with nothing gr ...more

I found Cherry endearing and Rick incredibly sweet..

Full review:
This story is as farfetched as the movie Pretty Woman – that there is a HEA after one of the MCs decides to hire an escort. Not bloody likely, but it does make for sweet romance reading.

Rick is, of course, the perfect man. He was raised right, taught to love a person for who they are and not what they look like. He’s also smart, rich, funny, a doctor, gorgeous, sensitive, and horny…the list goes on and on.

Cherry is simply a good

This was just not for me. It wasn't the heroine's body issues that bothered me - those are pretty real. It was the rest of it. A nurse has sex with a man she really doesn't know for the second time and he doesn't use a condom and her response is to take the morning after pill and say "no worries." Uh... Get tested for STD's dumbass! You work in a hospital. Don't you see the consequences of this type of behavior pretty frequently? And the hero is just creepy. He's a doctor and we're supposed to t ...more
I expected better from Ms. Verdenius, since Call On Me was really good, but this one is sappy, too sweet, and pretty fairy-tale-meets-erotica-wannabe.

I'm reading the entire trilogy, just ... because I want to know if Call On Me (The Mackay Sisters #1) by Angela Verdenius was a good shot or her writing gets better and better.

Love this series!!! You can't measure someone's beauty in terms of their size. It doesn't matter if your dress size is double digit: you can still be beautiful and someone out there can see it as well.
This was very fluffy, but so darned cute!

Me he sentido totalmente identificada con Cherry, con sus miedos e inquietudes. Ya solo por eso he disfrutado bastante.
Rick es el típico protagonista de novela romántica, a lo mejor un poco más pervertido que la media pero adorable y totalmente achuchable.
When I picked up this one I was really in need of some total fluff, but with some wit on the side. Well, this delivered!

I gave it 3 stars because I "liked it", but let me qualify that a bit - this isn't a life-changing read, and it's not the best-written, but it delivered that saccharine-flavored, make-me-happy-for-a-couple-of-hours feeling that I wanted at the time.

There were a couple of things that bothered me. First, check out that dreadful cover. OK, the top half is pretty lickable, but the

I really loved it. I don't want to say much about the story itself. I liked the message, somwhere out there there's somebody waiting for you. It doesn't matter what you look like and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Which girl doesn't like that thought?! This book is perfect for a rainy lazy day, it warms your heart and makes you smile.

Aah... What a sweet and lovely book, yay the chubby girl gets the hottie!, go Cherry!, bout time too...,I liked that you got a glimpse of the next two stories, Tim the vets next so definitely going to read that one.
This was a cute, fun, funny read. Loved both the guy and the girl. And it was nice to have a plus size lead and a guy who adored her just as she was! Looking forward to the next two in the series.

LG (A Library Girl's Familiar Diversions)
The cover image for this book was what first brought it to my attention - it looked cute, and the female cover model was clothed, so I guessed the book was probably not written primarily for a male audience (All Romance Ebooks, where I purchased it, can be a minefield at times). I liked the excerpt, and a few of the reviews I read on Goodreads sounded encouraging. I looked forward to a story that would indulge my love for shy heroines, as well as my love for heroines with body image issues who m ...more

Surprisingly I found this appealing aeons ago. Reading it for the second time made me questioned myself. Three quarter of the ebook consisted of Cherry doubting herself because of her size. It made me wonder, have I ever doubted my ability because of my size before. The answer is, I don't care. So, I skipped most part and glad by the end, Cherry redeemed herself when she stood up for herself and the man she loved.

Rick was creepy. I don't care if he was a drop dead gorgeous hunkalicious surgeon b

Cherry has a lot of insecurities being overweight. She has loyal friends which is a plus. There is someone that is honestly attracted to her. She works to get through her troubles with an evil bitch in tow. She triumphs at the end and gets the gut. Well he was hers from the beginning, so it ends well.

This is a light read but a very sensual one. It's about Cherry, 35 yrs old virgin, who has insecurities with her figure, being plump and petite. She longs for a male company. Intimate company with a man and not just mere buddies which she was usually categorized to.

" It's not that I dont want to be a virgin," she told Frizzo and Sugar, who were both lolling back on her sofa opposite her. " I just want, for once, to beheld. Touched. Kissed."

Book 1 of 'Big Girls Lovin' Trilogy. I enjoyed this immensly. A very different start to a romance, with a very sexy twist. I love these tales that give us plus size girls a chance to shine in loving passionate relationships.

I thought that Cherry Williams came across with quite a lot of the issues that plague plus size girls world wide. Large men have issues, but for some reason girls get more grief. Skinny girls can be real mean to girls of plump persuasion.

I liked the book because I'm a sucker for romance novels and I read a lot of them and I felt empathy with the main character, Cherry. The subject I can relate to, being an overweight woman myself, with a lot of bad experiences because of people's (and more specifically, men) (mis)conceptions about love and physical appearance; blame our Western society or the media. The fact is there and we can't cover it.

Cherry as a character can be annoying, but then again, after having lived a lifetime of
