I can’t believe it. Christopher Baldwin, the baddest boy in baseball, wants me. Amelia Bishop…I was maybe a solid seven before an accident changed my life, leaving me fat, broken, and avoiding mirrors. If he hadn’t said it with a stare hot enough to melt brain cells, I would never have believed him when he told me my curves are what he wants.

An arrogant a$$hole with tatt

I Voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

I really enjoyed this one. Amelia was always made fun of due to her size. Especially by her mother. And then later on men she dated, maybe why she didn't like sex. After she had an accident she spent her time closed off and living her fantasies through her books. But outside of that she was a seriously spunky bad ass lawyer.
When she meets Chris Baldwin the bad boy of baseball she can't believe the attraction she has for him. But what she really

“A fast curveball or two may have been thrown in this story”

I received an Advance Reader Copy for MY SWEETEST SIN (BBW Romance) written by Fiona Murphy and voluntarily reviewed this book. When baseball darling Chris Baldwin visits the firm of Powers, Noble, Teller, Haynes, Bishop and Associates, he doesn’t expect to be put in his place by a little firecracker of a lawyer named Amelia Bishop, whom he didn’t even realize was a lawyer. But something about her burrow

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review~~~~~~~~~~

This is my first read by this author and I know it won't be my last. I love books about women who are a perfect size two and have realistic curves on their bodies. Women who are insecure about how they look due to the jerks they have let into their lives. So this story was right there for me. We meet Amelia Bishop a firecracker when dealing with clients but she doesn't have that confidence when believing in herself. In walks in ba

*4.5 stars*

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! It features a sexy, swoon-worthy, but slightly arrogant hero and a confident but still vulnerable heroine. It made for a great match up and lots of hot chemistry. They were both drawn to the other but fought the attraction for their own reasons.

For Chris he wants Amelia and sets out to have her but is determined to keep things short term because of past experiences. For Amelia, she is not confident in relationships or her worth as a woman and convinces

Fiona Murphy has done it again. She's written another steamy hot erotic romance featuring characters with depth and grit and flaws, characters you root for throughout the story. This time, lawyer Amelia Bishop crosses paths with bad boy baseball star Christopher Baldwin. To say that his reputation precedes him is a massive understatement.

I love that Amelia isn't a bubble-headed size 0. I love that Chris is smitten with her from the get-go. This is really the story of two people who are tired of

Chris is the womanizing bad boy of baseball, and when he needs help with a legal issue, he meets Amelia, who has insecurities after being belittled by her mother and others all her life. These two are total opposites, and the chemistry between them is explosive. This is a well written flawless story, which is a sweet story with a few surprises, and I was totally captivated throughout. I look forward to reading more of this authors’ work, and highly recommend her work for all readers.

A great story

This is my first book by this author and I totally enjoyed it. Two souls damaged from live and past relationships find each other . What was supposed to be a bit of fun and not last more than a few weeks turns into something more. I loved amelia's dad's and Chris was every the alpha male possessive over the woman in his life. Great read.

I LOVED EVERY MINUTE of His Sweetest Sin! This is only my second book of Fiona Murphy's and I've gotta say that I'm addicted to her talented writing style in HUGE ways. Amelia Bishop is confident in the courtroom, but not so much in life, as her mother has made sure that she knows that no man would ever want her at the weight she's at. So, Amelia doesn't even try, because honestly, after 3 failed attempts at sexy times gone bad, she's not sure what the fuss is about. The day she comes face to fa ...more

Baddest boy in baseball meets one of the City's most kick-ass lawyer who knocks his socks off.

Amelia Bishop, smart-talking, Chicago attorney is set in her ways. She is fine living her life, day in and day out doing nothing but working a job she has lost all passion for, because she really knows nothing different. Until, that is, the day that baseball’s bad boy, and her law firm’s client, Chris Baldwin, walks in demanding her help.

Chris makes it clear to Amelia that he wants her, not just for legal representation. The two grate on each other’s nerves. Both throw insults, witty banter, and

Off the charts sexiness and swoony sweetness come together in the most delicious way in His Sweetest Sin. Opposites attract in a good girl lawyer and a bad boy baseball star with Amelia and Chris. I was completely drawn in by the sparks that flew during the back and forth these two had in the beginning. The push and pull of lust and fear that played in between them before finally exploding into some serious heat is addictive!
Ever the good girl, Amelia has centered most of her life trying to live

Chris and Amelia.....loved them❤️❤️their chemistry was crazy! Chris is the bad boy baseball player and Amelia is a take no stuff lawyer who is insecure because of her family and asshole ex’s 🙄. They meet when Chris is looking for Amelia’s brother to represent him and sparks fly. She manages to resist Chris’ charm for a ...more

His Sweetest Sin is both sweet and sinful. I’m a sucker for a hero with a smoking-hot body and a sexy, southern drawl. Every time Chris Baldwin uses the endearment Sugar in that deep-timbered voice of his while flashing those traffic-stopping dimples, my heart and panties melt.

Amelia Bishop is my sort of gal. I find her to be the perfect combination of sweet and sassy. She’s smart and strong but also vulnerable and a tad bit insecure due to her weight, some crappy ex-boyfriends and her witch of

Amelia had been constantly belittled from her mother due to her size. Men were just as cruel therefore she hated sex. After a tragic accident she lived her fantasies through books. In the corporate world she was one bad azz lawyer.

Alpha Chris had the reputation of a bad boy baseball player in the major leagues. He was always honest and up front. When he met Amelia there was an explosive chemistry. With Amelia's lack of confidence in her personal life, he knew he had to persuade her to go out wit

I'll never understand how people can be so vicious to one another, especially parents who are supposed to love and support you. After a lifetime of hearing negativity about her body and overall self, from her parent no less, Amelia has retreated into herself. Despite having a successful career as a lawyer, and being ridiculously smart and spunky, she just can't believe that men might find her attractive.

SO DAMN SWEET

Just when I was dying in the desert for a fun and sexy read, I found this little jewel. Ok loved this book. The bad boy baseball player and the smart and sassy lawyer are a match made in literary heaven. He's a fun guy who went after for for sex but quickly found so much more. She's an introvert who fought through her fear to get the love of her life. It was a complete book. There was angst, sexual tension, humor, romance, love, supporting characters and great dialogue.

Hot lawyer/baseball bad boy romance

Amelia and Chris has such great chemistry🔥🔥🔥. Amelia had insecurities around her body that she needed to work through and Chris was so patient (yet commanding 😊) when dealing with her. He also had his own demons to deal with which Amelia handled beautifully. I loved getting to see Ethan again!! I loved the twist towards the end and Amelia really let her badass lawyer self out to play. The epilogue was 10 years out and amazing.

I did enjoy this story, it had a lot of what I like to read, especially when a girl gives it back big time. Both characters are unsure about a relationship due to previous hurts but there is definitely chemistry that can't be overlooked. I didn't particularly like how Chris became over possessive and Amelia just accepted it, it was a little creepy and not really in keeping with her character at the start of the book. I did enjoy how loving and fun the relationship became. ...more

Impoverish authors books! I love a curvy girl romance that really show them in a good way and this book was definitely that. I'm not much of a sports fan but this books was easy to understand as some can confused me with there sport terms. I loved Chris he was everything a bad boy alpha should be with a southern charm.

Great story. Bad boy baseball player Chris sees good girl lawyer Amelia Bishop and knows no one or nothing will stop in his way until he hasher. Very hot and dreamy. Loved their HEA ending. I did not like that Amelia is this strong woman, but when Chris is around she is like a little lap dog and follows everything he says.

Enjoyed reading this book while home sick. I like that the heroine isn’t this tiny model. The way he makes her feel about her body is great, every women should have a man in there life like that. Great story, especially live that she immediately takes in his daughter.

Iffy alpha

Some editing issues, hard to read in parts and really sped up/rushed in others. Chris is an alpha male I'm not sure I liked. He was sweet and genuine then controlling and forceful in the next breath. The ending was good. Not sure I could read more from this author.
