Claire’s at a crossroads trying to figure out what she what she wants. She’s housesitting for her sister, who’s away on her honeymoon, when she realizes the contractor working on the house is Rob Halliday, the man who broke her heart in high school. Then, sweet romance happens.

The Good, The Bad and Everything In Between

-novella length: it’s 90 pages, not a huge time investment.

-Body positive: it wasn’t about the BBW heroine hating herself, which I will always appreciate. I liked that it was more

Sweet Second Chances

This is a wonderfully sweet romance about past love and second chances.

The beginning of the novel starts right in the middle of everything, which I liked. Claire's sister has just married a billionaire, while poor Claire is stuck single. Not only that, she's tasked with housesitting for her sister and new brother-in-law while they're on their honeymoon. I mean, maybe it's not too bad, considering she's housesitting for a billionaire, but I think maybe that makes it worse, too

I thought this story was really sweet, as the title indicates. I like that Claire, with gentle prodding from her sister Abby, was willing to give herself a make over and trust that there were ways for a curvier woman to be fashionable and pretty. I used to have the same issue of wearing tom boyish clothes as a young teen, and trying to hide all of my curves, so I identified with her. And shout out to Robbie for being a sexy contractor. :-)

Second book

I think this one was as good as the first one. I love a light hearted and fast read. That means I can finish the book in a day and not have to stay up all night. Would recommend this series to anyone.

Curves For Him

This overly sweet kinda short read. I was a bit lost at the beginning of the story, then like a light bulb went off. Claire makes me think of cotton candy sweet all around girl. High School and around that age two things happens... hormones and peer pressure. Both of those can make a young persons life hell.
A billionaire for a brother in law.. yeah baby!! So we have Claire chill-axing in a big house... when she runs int

I really liked this book, until...

I really liked this book for the most psart. The hero and the curvy heroine were likeable, their interaction was fun to read, especially when the POV changed back and forth and you could see their miscommunication. I liked it right up to thee point where they got together, then he treated her horribly the next morning. A week later he's all "It was too good,I was scared, blah, blah, blah", and just like that, she's forgiving and over her hurt, and calling his ho
The story was sweet, but the sexy scenes were absent. They went from starting to head into the house to the next morning. Not even using tepid words like in the Harlequin Presents old romance books. For someone who likes to read erotica the author could have at least thrown me a bone. That non-sexy parts and the fact that the end felt a bit rushed made me give this one 3 stars. The story itself was pretty good, but it lacked some 'meat' (take that how you will. LOL!).

Another Jane Austen retelling. This time it's "Persuasion", but I didn't think this one was as good as the first book in this series. "Persuasion" is probably my favorite of the Jane Austen books and while this did a decent job of putting the basic story line in modern terms, it just didn't have quite the same angst and sweetness as the original story or the first book in the series. Entertaining, but forgettable for me.

Claire is housesitting for her sister and brother in law while construction is happening.... and who's the contractor? The boy she grew up with, kissed in 7th grade and then was promptly ignored. There are sparks when they see each other again, but will he still act like a jerk and can she get over her insecurities to tell him what she wants?

Three stars because it's kinda ridiculous to still have the same feelings as a grown woman as you did in 7th grade; there was no maturity, nor depth of char

Claire and Robbie

Ok over all good book. But goodness all the miscommunication is killing me. I get holding ok to stuff but they are both now 29 and Claire is still holding on. No one is a mind reader ever so why do they keep everything inside.

The major thing I hate (and this is a roll over effect from the last book) a fellow bbw I know we could suffer fr, confident issues. But why do these women seem so lost until they find the men they are suppose to be with and then everything fall into

I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review by author Harper Ashe. This is book 2 of the Sweet Curves series by the author.

Claire Branson is watching her sisters estate while they are on their honeymoon. When contractor Rob Halliday enters the picture Claire fights the attraction to save herself from another broken heart by him. Rob Halliday is doing some remodeling for Stephan Blake while he is away. Seeing Claire again brings back some old feeling and starts some new feelings.

5 Stars

Claire and Robbie's journey is enticing, fun, serious and unexpected at the same time. This romance is a blast from the past that comes full circle after years and years. What both think that happened in the past to each was really not the case so a forbidden yet traumatic episode kept both from moving on but not moving on can be fun specially when you come face to face again.

What will happen to Claire and Robbie?
Pick up this read to find out.

Happy Reading

Good story!

I really enjoyed this story. It was a good continuation of Abby's story. I liked the connection to the party represented by Robbie. However, while Abby's story was fantastic and I enjoyed this one, it never really drew me in. I had fun reading it but I never found that spark I this story.

Not for me

I gave this 2 stars because I am not a novella kind of reader. The story was very sweet but not to believable for me but that's the point.
was a cute story, i didn't find anything super special about it though. I did enjoy the makeover though!
