3.5 stars

After losing a bet to her best friend, Kristy has to take her friend, Rena's aunt to her regular Bigfoot meetings. When producers from the television show Searching for Sasquatch choose their group to look for Bigfoot, Kristy is unwillingly trapped into hosting the show.

Keen to see her best friend as happy in love as she is, Rena and her boyfriend Jack, introduce her to Jack's friend and partner, Mitch. But Mitch is DEA and Kristy has no desire to get involved with anyone in law enforc

I should probably disclaimer that I DNF'd Seduction and Snacks for being too over-the-top for my liking, so I know that there might be a group of people who will devour Size Matters and have a lot of fun with it.

To be fair, Size Matters was funny. I found myself laughing at several of the jokes (and at one fake Mariah Carey). But the humor was trying to be "on" all of the time. I'd rather see a page of good dialogue or action with a great one-liner, rather than line after line of forced humor,

Size Matters is yet another brilliantly written book by the amazing Robyn! I have yet to read another author's work who compares in any way to Robyn's writing. I continue to learn new words I've never heard before in reading Robyn's vocabulary is growing LOL!
Kristy is such a relatable main character in this fact how she relates to people and so wants to make a difference in the lives of others is so me and how I try to live my life.

This is was fun read. We met Kristy briefly in “How Hard Can It Be” (which was super funny and you really should read) and her best gal pal Rena. But In Size Matters we find out the Kristy has been extremely unlucky in love. Like beyond unlucky in love. Oh and Kristy really should never beat on anything. She is guaranteed to lose. Hence the reason Kristy finds herself driving Aunt Moon-Unit (Yes Moon-Unit) to a month wo

DNF @ 40%... (no rating because I read less than 50%)

I just want to say that this book isn't all that bad. It's cute and quirky. Well written even if it's a little over the top.

The reason I didn't finish it is one word. Well it's one word that the protagonist uses repeatedly. The word is "f__ktard".

Robyn Peterman's Size Matters is another outrageously zany caper that is just as over-the-top and hilarious as the first book in the Handcuffs and Happily Ever Afters series, How Hard Can It Be?. In this outing, after losing a bet to her best friend, Rena, Kristy is forced to take Rena's Aunt Phyllis to her Bigfoot meetings. When the group is chosen for a reality series, Kristy is selected as the (unwilling) host for the show and she, along with a several of the wacky yet lovable members, are of ...more

If you like tightly woven, believable storylines with carefully crafted plots, then keep moving to the back of the room, please, while the rest of us Bigfoot-believing adventurers get ready for the show.
HOWEVER, if you have a sense of humor, if you love to laugh so much you snort, if you love sweet and sexy romance, and if you have a profound respect for the creatively profane then you will ADORE this book!
Robyn Peterman's books are brief vacations to a world of loveable nuts, screwballs, misfi

I have been looking forward to Size Matters since I first read HHCIB. This was another winner by Robyn Peterman. I loved Kristy, she was the mostly sane one in a band of psychos (as opposed to Rena from HHCIB who was as psycho as the rest of her band in her book). I really enjoyed Kristy's relationship with Rich, and the hotness with Mitch. It was the best of both worlds.
Edith and Mrs C, who you ended up disliking in Book 1, really found their way into your hears by the end of this book.
So many
Size Matters is hilarious. The hero, Mitch is smoking HOT. I highly recommend all of Robyn's books for a laugh.

I love Robyn Peterman's books. They are filled with side-splitting laughter and hot romance. This is the second book in the Handcuffs and Happily Ever After Series. After losing a bet with her best friend Rena, Kristy must escort Aunt Phyllis to all her Big Foot meetings. Her lose quickly becomes unbearable when she is wrangled into going on a Big Foot hunt to create a television show

Eagerly anticipating the next book in the Handcuffs and Happily Ever Afters series. Can't wait to see what sort of trouble Robyn Peterman has come up in that crazy mind of hers!

Oh my lovely funny wonderful Robyn Peterman, you have done it again. I laughed out loud more times than I can count, I cried, and I fell madly in love not just with Kristy and Mitch but the whole crazy gang. Loved this story!

Well well, that was one hell of a ride. I now want my own set of wild and crazy friends like Mrs. C and Edith and I can totally be friends with Mariah. Hell wait I think I have own very own Boo friend and my mother and other mother could totally be the old asshat ladies who knit well minus the knitting I'm to afraid they might stab someone.

Loved it, can't wait for the next book. Candace should be another wild and crazy ride.

Fun fun read! Size Matters is a fun quick(too quick) read that has you laughing out loud more than once. Mitch and Kristy are on a wild ride to romance with a Yeti, 2 crazy ladies, some dysfunctinal sisters and lots of laughs! This book is well worth the read!!!!

OMG this book was hilarious, I was laughing so hard that I started crying at one point. Loved the plot of the book, there was always something interesting going on in the book. I can't wait to read another book by the author.

Warning for the faint of heart: This book is filled with naughty bits and cursing that will make a sailor blush. Wait, is that a warning or an endorsement?

Just as good as the first one. I freaking LURV Robyn Peterman. She's hysterical. If you haven't given one of her ridiculous books a try, you need to. They are so much fun! I highly recommend the audibles. They do a great job at capturing the characters.

Marie's Tempting Reads Review:

I was abso-freaking-lutely HAPPY to do a review for Size Matters. I knew after reading the first few sentences of chapter one I was in for another hilarious riot. Robyn Peterman creativity thrills and AMAZES me! I laughed, I cried, I was even speechless with the variety of words for the female bits. To say I couldn't put this book down is a understatement. Every time I went to put my kindle down to do something, I was smiling, anticipating what would happen next in

Everyone will tell you how hilarious this book is, so let me tell you something different. Don't get me wrong, this book is by far one of the quirkiest, funniest books I read in a while (probably since How Hard Can it Be by the same author). There were several laugh out loud moments and I came dangerously close to peeing on myself! But what I want to focus on is that in the midst of all of this laughter, Robyn managed to create a character that was more than just endearing. Kristy, our leading l ...more

The second installment of the Handcuffs and Happily Ever Afters Series from Robyn Peterman does not disappoint. Size Matters takes us into Kristy's search for love and BIg Foot - yes that ever-elusive creature. She is joined by a group of silly, rowdy, and crazy characters (some of which we know and love from How Hard Can it Be). It is a laugh-out loud ride, but has it's serious side too, after all this is a romance… and at it's core, as kooky as the side kicks maybe, the hero and heroine are de ...more

Robyn Peterman has a very unique style of writing, bless her little heart! It is creative and uses humor to help you experience a wide range of emotions while reading this book. Kristy has a heart of gold and Mitch has a butt to die for! What else could you ask for in a couple, bless their hearts! Kristy's adventure to find the elusive Bigfoot brings together a weird group of definitely flawed characters that you can't help but fall in love with as they grow together in solving the mystery.

It's fun to read in public & have others ask you "what's so funny?" I just tell them to read for themselves! Yes, her mind is this warped & I love it! It started with "How Hard Can It Be?" & Rena & Jack's story. Kristy & Mitch's is just as great! Lots of laughs, plenty of hot love making & icy blue eyes.

Robyn did it again with this series. Handcuffs & Happily Ever Afters are great! I love that the characters in this were connected to Rena & Jack. Add Big Foot and some nutty supporting characters and you have an entire novel of laugh out loud, eyes full of tears funny. Kristy is an amazing character full of deep back story. I loved the playful start her and Mitch had. I love all the giggles. I even loved Rich. <3 Robyn makes you feel for these people. Mariah Carey, Boo and the Sewing Lesbians - ...more

If you are ready to laugh out loud, to the point of snorting, Size Matters is the book for you. You have to be in the mood for screwball comedy (think old I Love Lucy shows times ten) but underneath all of the ridiculousness and silliness, there is also a love story and a heartfelt tale about there being more than meets the eye – the perfect combination to make you laugh and sigh.

I really really really wanted to like this book, since I LOVED the first one in the series. However the heroine in this book (Kristy) was too 'stupid' and too much of a doormat IMO. I also thought the pace of the book was off. Everything happened over a week plus a few days, and it just wasn't beliveable. I thought the surrounding characters were great, even though Mitch irritated me some. I will read the last book in the series, but I hope that it will be more in style with 'How hard can it be? ...more

In the worlds of contemporary romance and paranormal romance, it's hard to come up with something truly innovative, but this series is well on its way. Combining the challenges of losing stupid bets with hunting for Bigfoot, Kristy also has to deal with the complications of falling madly in love with a hot guy while actually finding out who he is. While most of us don't hunt Bigfoot, we can all identify with her search for love even if we don't do it the same crazy flair!
