* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. *

This was a novella, however, it packed the punch of a full length novel. The author did an amazing job getting the readers to become invested in the characters right from the very start of the story. Poor Red, imagine the horror of hearing a couple having sex, in the church right before your wedding - then imagine the man is your fiancé....yep, it was Jake, Red's fiancé. How could the reader not be hooked right then and there?!?!

This was such a darling little story. I absolutely loved the characters. Every girl should have a friend like Mary Lou. Thanks to Mary Lou, Red had the a chance encounter with her childhood crush, Mason. Little did she know that Mason's shared the same feelings, and seizes a moment with kiss that was a "save" of sorts , when Red was confronted by her cheating ex.
I love the chemistry between these two, it's sweet, endearing, and at time hot.
"Big Girl Panties" was is well written and in my favor

I loved this book! It’s witty, it pulls at your heartstrings, it has characters you will love and some you will love to hate, all on a country backdrop that will have you wanting lake parties and dates in the back of a pick up truck.

Red and Mary Lou are quite the pair. Red is low key and Mary Lou is a fire siren going off in your ear. Mary Lou is like that little devil on your shoulder whispering in your ear, “Come on, just go for it, what do you have to lose?” and that’s exactly what she does a

I can not imagine it being my wedding day and finding my fiance' in a compromising position. Well, for Scarlett aka Red, she has to face a hard dose of reality. This is what kicks off this fun book that will have you thinking back to what you high school days were like. When you past and you present seem to all run together, how will or do you react.

When Scarlett “Red” Summers finds her fiancé cheating on her with one of her bridesmaids moments before their wedding, she does what every self-respecting woman would do: calls off the wedding and goes into hermit mode.

After two weeks of mourning, her best friend Mary Lou drags her out into society again. She knew running into Jake was a likelihood, but the reality was more difficult than she had anticipated.. until Mason Pierce swoops in and rescues her with a kiss.

We meet Scarlett ‘Red’ who is not in a good way. We don’t find out till chapter two what’s got her in a funk and bedridden. This is the chapter that fills in the horrible blanks and we learn of her heart being betrayed in the worst possible way.
SJ has written a contemporary second chance at love story. There are many laughs as well as some heartwrenching moments where I felt so bad for Red.
There’s a lot of jumping from the present to past in this book and sometimes, just as I was getti

“I close my eyes tight, scrunching them together like I always did when I was five. If the bogeyman can’t see you with your eyes closed, surely, a bear can’t either. There has to be logic there.”

“He hasn’t kissed me, all the boy has done is touch me, and I’m embarrassingly breathless.”

“I stare at him in complete shock as he practically races away from me to the safety of his truck. That didn’t just happen. I can’t be that bad at this, can I?”

Sometimes in life people settle for what they think they should have and sometimes we are saved by the bell, so to speak. That's exactly what happens when minutes before she is due to walk down the aisle she catches her good for nothing fiance in the "arms" of another woman, with no pants on. After a short mourning period and after she finally comes out of her bedroom and gets a shower, thank you Mary Lou!, what follows is her every teenage dre

Really a great, sweet story of rebuilding. A quick little read that is not a stand-alone and I can not wait for the rest of the story.

Scarlett (Red) is ready to start her life, ready to walk down the aisle. Too bad Jake wasn't quite as ready. Now she must start over, when she would rather curl up in bed.
Mason is the high school hottie that you thought was untouchable. You dreamt about him, wished for him but he was just out of reach.

Since it's such a short book I will not give much away

S.J. Sawyer is a new author to me and Big Girls Panties Part 1 is an amazing fun contemporary read..

I loved this story it was fun, witty and unique. I enjoyed the change in POV through out.
This story takes place over a weekend with added flash back scenes that help build the story. The Characters were both believable and loveable.. I have come to wonder if this is what small town America is like!

What a great start to a new

This was a very sweet romance based small town America. This story line fell so close to home that I couldn't help but love it.

I had so many laugh out loud moments at some of the stuff Mary Lou pulled Red into (I can’t wait to see what other trouble she tries getting them into in the next book.) We should all be so lucky to have a friend like her.

I can't wait to see what schemes and plans are coming in the next book for these girls, not to mention Mason's plan for Red!!

What an amazing read! I fell in love with all of the characters! This book had me cracking up, it was such a refreshing and easy read! You always know what is going on with the changes in POV and flashbacks, I love getting both POV's in one book!. Once you start reading it you are hooked until the end. Then you just can't wait to get your hands on book 2! If you want a truly entertaining and amazing book, grab a copy of Big Girl Panties!

This was a really good story about finding yourself when you thought that all was lost. I was hooked from the very beginning of this because it kept me entertained and there was never a dull moment in this story. I adored Red and I loved Mary Lou because she was that friend that we all need. The one who won't let you mop in misery, the one that would set you straight and not let you down. I can't wait to read the second part of this story and see what will happen next.

S.J. Sawyer has done it again! She is a phenomenal author who keeps you wanting more. Her character's are developed and you can't help but love them as much as the main ones. If you haven't read this you are missing out on a great laugh out loud read. (tried to pace myself wasn't happening) Ok i'll tell you about the story and the characters.

Not a cliffhanger although this is the first book in "One Like A Lady Series." ( Can't wait to get my hands on the other's trying to wait patiently)
