I could have stayed with these characters forever.

It is 5:10am, and I have stayed up all night reading this amazing and lovely tale. I cannot say enough good things here. I am completely enamored of these characters, and of both the friend they chose as their family, and the English and Greek families that surround them. This story was well written, the characters are completely realized and you almost feel like you can hear every word spoken, see every expression and action.
I feel full and con

I liked the book. The storyline was good and I liked the characters. I honestly could relate to all the self esteem feels of MJ. The book was slow at times but all and all I enjoyed it. I'm not big on critiquing grammar, run on sentences etc just because it's not an area I excel in myself as you guess if your critiquing this 😉

More Than Cake

Omg I never wanted this story to end. And why do I feel Archie’s story is next????? I loved this story of MJ and Heath. Their love story was funny, sweet, sexy, and just so real. I’ve read many stories about plus sized women, and I have to say this one was the most realistic. Heath was a doll. I loved how romantic and sweet he was. I chuckled with his teasing of her last name. Their love story was organic, and just made reader feel good. She was perfect for him.

This was really good

It's not a little story that's for sure. And I deeply feel sorry for touring singers that life is not easy. But I loved the Big rockstar fell in love so hard for a not supermodel girl. recommend this to anyone.

Fun find.

Came across this book while browsing, something caught my eye and I'm glad it did. I really enjoyed this couple. They were cute right from the start. I loved the innocence and sweetness of MJ. Very green and naive to life after being sheltered by her dad, she gets lucky with the job of a lifetime. Or so she thinks. Heath is on tour with another singer, she's a pain in the behind, but her PA MJ is a shy, breath of fresh air. Right away they click, and neither one saw the relationship bec

Brilliant! I adored everything about this book. I feel as if Heath and MJ took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I laughed, cried, got angry and so very sleepy since I could not put this down!

Tani Hanes delves into the world of the rich and famous. Through her story you meet the entitled. Some who stay grounded and others who don’t. Great read

The heart wants what the heart wants, and MJ can hardly believe that Heath Spencer wants *her.* After all, he is an international celebrity with a skinny, beautiful girlfriend, and MJ is well, not skinny. Indeed, a large part of this story is about MJ working with her insecurities about her size as she falls in love with Heath, but it's also about a lot more than that. It's about honesty, and being yourself, and standing up for what's right. It's a beautiful romance with a lovely peak into the w ...more

Good cake, needs more filing, less icing

This is a good story, the characters are nice, wonderful, and sweet and the bad guys are really horrible people. Like I walked into a pastry shop that sold only sugar cookies and then really horrible icky cookies. No pastries, no cake or pie, no complex cookies with multiple ingredients. If you are looking for a nice treat with escapism, true love, & very few complications then this is the story for you.

But it could have been so much better. There were

Refreshing treat!!

It's a wonderful thing then you find a book that celebrates the atypical heroine. I love MJ! She is a product of society's biased ways, but she shines like the star she really is! An adorable love story!
