As for the characters, the heroine seemed spot-on. I think most women feel there's room for improvement in the way they look. I know I did for a long time. Some days I still feel extremely average and quite invisible or ...more
Wow I’m not sure where to start. I don’t know that I read the same book that everyone else did. I did not love this book but I didn’t completely hate it.
I liked the premise of the story but it was so short that it kinda fell flat. It was fairly well written but definitely left me wanting more.
However I did not like that the book made me feel bad about myself for being a bigger girl. This book took the heroines hatred for herself and her body to the extreme and basically left it ...more
Having been “curvy” my whole life, I love a story with an HEA for a curvy woman. I can totally understand Charlotte and her disbelief that good-looking Adam could truly like her with all her extra poundage. Charlotte owns and operates a most successful little bakery, The Sugar Cube, in Manhattan. Adam is a police detective who comes in to check out the new fave doughnut place. This was a sweet story of Adam trying to convince Charlotte he could really have feelings for ...more
Charlotte is a beautiful curvy woman but growing up as an introvert and someone who has been bullied has left her unable to trust. Even when everyone around her constantly tells her that she is gorgeous and a wonderful person. So when the detective comes in and almost instantly falls for her she can't see the reason why. After woo'ing her and trying to show her that she is just right for him she still has her doubts.
It really hurt my heart that Charlotte was so down ...more
Insecurities are one thing but Charlotte's are borderline insane, bipolar even. It got to be too much. It was irritating. If I was that guy there would be no way I'd keep up that chase, especially after her major meltdown. You'd never know which personality you would get each day.
It was a good thing this story was short ...more
Also, I know my book was free, but it needs too much work to rate much ...more
Charlotte is the baker/owner of The Sugar Cube. Adam is a police detective who likes what he sees in Charlotte the first time he meets her, even though she doesn't see it herself.
After weeks of him pursuing her, she agrees to go on a date and then walks out when he asks her to go to Paris with him, thinking he is pranking her because of her weight.
Will she realize that he likes her just the way she is and give him a chance?
This was a sweet short read! Can't wait to read the rest ...more
Charlotte is a lonely baker what loves her work. She is a plus size woman that lacks self-esteem.
Adam is a police detective, handsome; a man who gets what he wants. Charlotte is the one he wants and he doesn't hide it. His partner is a wanker. Period.
The only reason i gave it a four because I wanted more of these two. Easy to read, great Syntax.
Thank you Rebecca for sharing your talent with us.
Also, there were some mistakes such as one character saying the heroine had a convict brother and then a couple of paragraphs later we're told she's an only child. Also there were too many extraneous characters or at least they could have been written a bit better.
Charlotte never learned to love herself until she was slapped in the face with it. The handsome Adam took his time and took steps to help her see what others, including himself, saw and that's a beautiful woman inside and out. Short but very sweet, clean love story
