From the moment I met him, I knew he was trouble.

He was reckless, cocky, and everything I shouldn't want.

I had a life all figured out, and Tucker Moore was not a part of the plan.

But somehow I slipped.

One moment I had it all under control.

The next I was spiraling around him, begging him for whatever he would give me.

But as quickly as I fell for him, it all crumbled

5 Stars!

I am a sucker for curvy girls getting some love kind of books. I find them relatable and, most of the time, pretty hilarious. Bottoms Up was exactly the kind of read I was looking for and excelled my expectations. It was funny, sweet, sexy, and a lot of fun to read. It had an amazing pair of besties and some hot, but noisy, neighbors.
This book was un-put-downable. I gobbled it up in one setting. Kennedy was my kind of gal. I loved her. Tucker... Ugh! I want one of him! He was drool

Aw wow let me just start by saying what a little beauty this piece of writing was. I enjoyed every second of it. I found myself smiling like an idiot at times and I just loved it.

Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

Tucker is a strong and handsome man, he has his mind set and when he wants something done he does it, especially when it involves his little firecracker and watching his reactions and love for her is absolutely beautiful. He’s so protective and loving he made my heart
Holly Renee is a brand new author to me and my first impression was blown away! I absolutely ADORED Bottoms Up! The characters were amazing - with the female lead being my FAVORITE and the storyline flowed just effortlessly! Sexy, sassy, sweet, and smart, BOTTOMS UP was an instant WINNER for me!

"No one had ever had the power to hurt me like he did. He had the power to change everything.”

I think what made this book so REAL to me was our heroine, Kennedy. I LOVED HER instantly because she was so

Bottoms Up by Holly Renee is probably exactly what you imagined it would be when you see the cover and probably not. I really appreciated Holly for introducing a lot of the issues curvier girls tend to have when it comes to relationships and general self-esteem. She didn't focus too much on weight issues but rather listing the insecurities our heroine experienced and also going, okay, that's not that important when you

Rate: 5 / 5 stars

My first ever Holly Renee book! I was super excited to read this since before it came out and I finally got around to reading it. And what can I say? I fell a little in love with the book since the first chapter.

As I kept reading the feeling just solidified. I loved both Renee's writing and the book as a whole. I enjoyed reading about these characters so much, and of course I absolutely fell in love with Tucker. He was completely swoon worthy! And I just adored him to pieces,

I absolutely loved this. Tucker was incredible and I really liked Kennedy too! Her self esteem was lacking due to years of putdowns by her snooty family. I’m so glad that Tucker helped her see herself the way he did. Such a quick read from page 1!

5 "Baby, you're a firework" Stars!!!

First and foremost, I NEED a Tucker Moore in my life!!! I mean that part where he...(toes curling) and when he said...(swoon-f***ing-tastic) oh, and that part where he did that thing and then, you know...(oomph, more, GIVE! ME! MORE! ) Seriously, Tucker Moore can get it again and again and again!!! I fell and fell and fell head-over-everything for him!!!

Kennedy, go on with your bad self!!! I so adored

4.5 Stars

Another win for Ms. Renee! I absolutely adored the hell out of Tucker and Kennedy. Everything about them was wicked fun, well...except for the times they forgot that communication is the key to success. I won't lie, those moments drove me bat shit crazy. I'm pretty sure my eyes almost rolled out of my head during the "big downhill moment." Outside of those few instances, Tucker and Kennedy owned the show with their witty banter, delicious chemistry and beautifully created fit.

Joy Novel Thoughts
I never want to leave the world that was created in Bottoms Up! I am seriously sad that I can't open up my Kindle and dive back into this world again. This is one of those stories that I will re-read when I'm in a funk and need a pick me up.

Although this story is fairly predictable and it's a pretty common trope, the way that Holly Renee wrote this story was beautiful and poetic. I swear her writing is magical. She had me feeling all the things.

"Tucker already had too much of an impact on me.

Can I just start over, wipe this story from my mind, and read this book in its entirety all over again?! I’m am irrevocably in love with both Tucker and Kennedy! I loved all the characters in this book honestly, and I can’t wait for the next installment. Kennedy is someone we as bookworms can all relate to on such a personal level. Especially those with a little meat on our bones. Tucker has found himself a permanent home on my list of book husbands. He’s everything we as lovers of fictional men ...more

I have read, and loved, all of Holly Renee's books and this one is no different; I was hooked from the very first page.
Kennedy is such a great character; she is so hurt by her families constant battering on her self-esteem that she doubts everything she does and every one she meets. I HATE her family! They make my blood boil and tears fall from my eyes, they are so unsupportive and critical; it is very sad.

Tucker... I love him. He can be my new book husband; he can whisper sweet, filthy things

Arc provided by author for honest review. This is my second book by Holly and damn was I ever impressed. I'm so glad she went a different route with this book. And not your typical zero size character. Kennedy has a great personality and I just love her. And Tucker omg I loved that he wasn't shallow and had such a good heart. The man is a God. And for him to protect Kennedy the way he has makes him even more attractive. And his green eyed monster is freaken hot. Some people may not find jeliousy ...more
This was my second book from Holly Renee and it has just made me want to read more from her.

I loved the story of Kennedy and Tucker! Tucker is such a sweet, endearing guy that you just have to love. Kennedy, I was heartbroken for her and how she just wanted to be loved and accepted for the woman she was and not what her family wanted her to be.

Tucker is clearly book boyfriend material!

Highly recommend.

I feel like it was kismet that I received a copy of Bottoms Up, I didn't see any teasers, I didn't read the blurb, I just dove straight in and it was absolute perfect timing that I met Kennedy and Tucker right now.

Insecurities. We all have them but sometimes they can really affect our day to day.

Kennedy Hayes is living her dream and capturing some of the best moments in a couples life by taking their photos. Weddings. Engagements. Her favorite shots are of old architecture. She lives with her

4.75 stars! I thought the book was phenomenal! It was funny, hot, and sexy. I absolutely loved the message this book conveyed about love.

Kennedy was an amazing heroine. She's not perfect, in looks or behavior, but she's so easy to relate to. I loved her determination to do herself and the way she was with her bestie, Brooke and vice versa. Kennedy and Tucker together are amazing! I kept wondering if something would develop between them, because if it was up to Kennedy I don't think anything
French Press Bookworm Blog

I enjoyed the sass and banter. The possessive alpha hero and I can’t wait to know more about all the other characters. What killed the story for me was all the insecurities and jumping to conclusions and just not communicating well. I would have liked to see Tuck man up a little more by overall definitely going to be on the look out for the next book

Review by Lisa Kane

Kennedy Hayes is a spanx kind of girl. She's semi comfortable with her curves, but still feels insecure about how she appears to other people. Her cheating ex and her malicious crazy family don't help.

They have spent her whole life tearing down her confidence in order to get her to live the life they think she should live. The losers that she seems to attract only add to her self-esteem issues.

“You’re so beautiful for a bigger girl.” I couldn’t tell you how many times I had
First off, I love that this book is about normal sized girls and not twigs cause bigger girls need love too! Second, I would disown myself from her family. They are cruel and horrible people. This book gave us real life moments that others can easily relate too. If you are lacking confidence this book may just boost your confidence to show you that you are YOU and that is OK. Not only do you imagine yourself in this character world, but the descriptions of places and photos makes you want to ...more

Shelves: 5-star-reads, arcs
I voluntarily received an arc copy of this book in return for nothing but an honest review.

Kennedy is a young sassy woman, but she has no self confidence either in her abilities nor her appearance, thanks mostly to her parents where she’s never felt anything but disapproval and disappointment from them. So when the hot sexy mysterious new neighbor literally crashes into her life, not only is she massively attracted to him, she also holds no hope that “a guy like that”

This is the second book I’ve read by Holly Renee and the second time I’ve been impressed by her writing. She has a way of stringing her words together that just flows so eloquently and easily. This author has tremendous talent, and I’m already looking forward to more from her.

I really loved Tucker. Extremely protective of Kennedy, Tucker was also a dirty-talking, confident alpha wrapped up in a southern gentleman’s package making him one very swoon-worthy hero. This man was smitten

Kennedy was doing what she loved and was great at it...taking pictures. She was happy with her life and how things were going, little did she know her life was about to take a turn.

Tucker and his friend Liam just moved from Tennessee to help rebuild this new business, when he ran into Kennedy for the first time it was dislike from the start. He held the vibe of a player, one who wasn’t interested in love just some fun. Was Kennedy right about him or was she assuming things she shouldn’t?

Where do I begin with Bottoms Up? There is so much I want to say about this book. When I read the Blurb I was really excited but that cover omg that cover said READ ME JOJO you know you need to so when I got the chance to read this book I was thrilled and I dived into this book as soon as I could and OMG this book was fantastic. The way I describe reading this book is it was if someone just grabbed me by the shoulders and did not let me go until I reached the very last word. I was hooked to this ...more

My heart is 100% still reeling from finishing this astounding read just hours ago. My heart is still full and heavy, yet so incredibly light. This is the kind of book that will have your overall being filled with butterflies for the first time all over again.

It’s crazy how hard and close to home this book hit as I was reading it. SO many great and VERY important life values are thrown into this book. Not to mention Tucker Moore. He is the epitome of every book boyfriend out there. Why? Because
