The first time Flynn Long sees her, she's lying on a bed in lingerie. The picture is soft, just like her curves, and instantly he's obsessed.

Cali Carr is at the end of her full-figure modeling career when she's hired for a new campaign. But when the owner of the company steps out of the shadows and starts calling the shots, a job is the last thing it feels like.

I never know how to rate this type book. I usually go with three stars because obviously I like them and find them addictive. But are they great lit? Well no..but who cares?

This one features a female character who is not the norm for most smexy times books. A plus sized model.

I've been every size that is probably possible over my adult hood and right now I have a few extra pound, should that make me feel unattractive? Well it depends on who you talk with. I've seen the subject of that

All I can say is thank god for AR books!!! They never disappoint and always hit the mark. My last read wasn't a winner but this story definitely made me forget that. AR books are like my personal medicine for hard times. They make the bad stuff simply go away and leave you feeling loved. Sometimes even thoroughly, if you know what I mean. ;)

Cali (btw. love the name) and Flynn are amazing together and I love how fast their relationship progressed. I usually don't like that but with AR books I cra

After the roller coaster that was Mia Sheridan's new novel I wanted something light, short and hot to entertain myself. And who is the best at the smutt? Of course, Alexa Riley!

Curvy is a stand-alone quickie that tells the story of Flynn Long (a wealthy hot workaholic that finds himself feeling super-protective and atracted to the curvy woman in the photo for his new 'campaign') and Cali Carr (a woman who loves her curves, who wants to change the standards and who

With Alexa Riley books you read one, and you pretty much know what to expect from the rest. Lol As expected, Flynn falls ridiculously over the top in love/obsession with Cali instantly. Flynn is the owner of a clothing line and when he sees Cali's picture he becomes instantly obsessed. Some of the things he does are waaaay over the top (locked doors anyone?) It's not realistic nor is it meant to be but it feeds into that fantasy that someone is THAT MUCH in love. Besides, it's dirty smut that is ...more

This was a nice reading.It was one of Alexa Riley's usual short insta-love stories with a possessive alpha-male and a sexy red head with curves in all the right places...I liked Flynn and Cali,they were good together and had some hot chemistry going on....

"Goddamn.Is sex always that good?"
"Our sex will always be like this, and you'll

Love! Love! Love! Everything I wanted except for it to be longer lol. Flynn is that perfect OTT hero, steam rolling over everybody, going after what he wants, and won't take no for an answer. I loved Cali too. She was smart and confident in her own skin and very likable. I love heroines who appreciate themselves as they are.

I was glad there wasn't any unnecessary drama between the couple or from the outside. I liked that as a plus size model, her weight was not seen negatively by anyone includin

This story had all the "Alexa Riley Elements" working for it plus an add special attraction. It had the main character Cari Carr. She was something special. This was a woman who could work in any other novel... not just a specific Alexa Riley Brand.

Usually, from every book I have read of theirs... the women are always virgins and fall instantly for the over the top Alpha "breeding" men. I have never been hit by an overt intelligence or a sense of

Yet another ridiculously over the top story from Alexa Riley that I fell in love with. Flynn and Clai's story was short and sweet, with the added bonus of some very smexy times. Flynn was on crazed Alpha-possessive Hero and I loved how consumed he was by Cali from the first moment he laid eyes on her picture.

Bottom line, this book is the perfect read for when you're looking for something fast and sexy to give you a little pick-me-up. Alexa Riley is my first choice for when I want to read someth

Oh Flynn you've got my heart beating out of my chest.  What an amazing over the top sexy beast this guy is.  Alexa must have a secret window into my brain because she just keeps getting better and better at giving me just what I want.  I loved that Flynn fell for Calli at her picture and went full steam ahead at making her his.  For once we get a heroine brave and feisty enough to grab her man immediately and hang on for one hot as hell ride.  Perfect all the way.. So good..

** 3-3.5 STARS **

"She's definitely mine, and I'm never letting this ANGEL go."

description was a classic Alexa Riley story. Over-the-top romantic, cheesy, and ridiculous. But sexy. And fun.

So why not higher stars? ------> Because I'm waiting to see something different now. I want to be surprised for once.

Sigh. What can I say about an Alexa Riley book that hasn’t already been said about the wheel, penicillin and women gaining the right to vote?

So instead this:

Alexa Riley made a deal with the devil – they will get to write erotica for all women and in return we bleed for one week every month.

Alexa Riley can light a fire (in your pants) by rubbing two ice cubes together.

Alexa Riley knows where the g-spot is.

I don't care what anyone has to say but I LOVE Alexa Riley and their quick smutty sweet HEA reads!!! And Curvy was another sexy and sweet over the top virgin romance that left a big fat smile on my face. If you are a fan of insta-love then Alexa Riley has created the perfect romance to keep readers like myself entertained with this sweet adorable love at first sight romance. This was definitely a quick read but you got to love the ladi
The next insta-love story of Alexa Riley is all what you love in their books. Possessive and glamorous hero. Sweet sugar heroine. And a great romantic story in one day, of course with the best sexy scenes, as always.

I liked Flynn the mega caveman. He had some swoon worthy lines.

I wish the story was longer though.

Also, needs more Raahoshing.

3 Stars



Yeah, that's my reaction. I loved how Alexa Riley used curvy model in this story. I loved how Cali Carr confident on her body also modelling career. BUT.. it was ruined with the caveman, Flynn Long (even his last name is really funny). I snorted. A LOT!

The story could be more potential if Cali-Flynn has more bonding time beside insta-lust. I believe insta-love is okay in every Ms. Riley's book but no for this one. Definitely kill my expectation.

I guess I am in the minority here, but... I didn't like it. I just could not get into and I didn't like Flynn at all. He was a bit of a growler.. Lol. I guess Cali was okay but Flynn turned me off from the very beginning!! ...more
Feb 22, 2016 rated it it was amazing
This book deserves more than a 5-star rating! It was so good! Definitely a must read.

The story was about Flynn, 33 and Cali, 24.

Flynn's a workaholic man. He owns a lot of businesses including women's lingerie line, 'Curved Intimates'. In fact, he owns half the companies in L.A. And during a meeting, he saw Cali's picture. He becomes obsessed the moment he saw it.

The photoshoot was so HOT! He's the perfect alpha! I loved every moment of it. How possessive and obsessed he was when it comes to her.

This is a reread review. I read this book a long time ago and forgot to review it.
I enjoyed this book greatly and I especially loved the heroine's confidence.
She had a great self image being a plus size model and embracing the way she is.

She is Cali Carr. Measurements: 40”/32”/48” (Bust/Waist/Hips) Dress size: 14 Shoe Size: 8 and she makes no apologies for it!

3 curvaceous stars!

Another over-the-top smutty read from my favourite duo when I’m in the mood for a quick read in between books.

I loved that the main character, Cali, was a curvy model (in my mind I’m picturing a red headed Ashley Graham).

Flynn made me giggle with his obsessive alpha maleness. He knew he wanted Cali from the first time he saw her in a photo and set out to make her his.

She’s my most prized possession, and I’ll be damned if anyone else lays a finger on her.

Huh. First time to read a heroine with vital stat of 38-32-42.

Me liked it.

Okay. I know Alexa Riley books are always, always OTT. So it’s either it’ll make you roll your eyes or laugh your ass off.

This one…

I find H an obsessed maniac – one look at the picture and he literally dragged h to do the photo shoot.

If only he has the ability to do teleporting…

Second, his reactions to her while doing the photo shoot were out of line. He almost crashed the place because of his OTT jealousy.

That’s scary
Yes! Yes! YES!!! If I can count on anyone to bring me out of a funk it's this writing duo! I swear, they just keep getting better and better... Not to mention, hotter! Phew!!

I loved Flynn and Cali from the get-go and I loved watching them fall in love! As per the norm with an AR read I was expecting insta-love and I was not disappointed! I mean, there is nothing hotter than a man that knows what he wants and goes for it no holds barred! And the growly possessiveness?! Yes, please!!
