Lawrence isn't a boy, he's a man. And he's pursuing me relentlessly.

During one whirlwind night together, he makes me feel things I neve

Quick(ish) Review

This is a book that I wanted to like but the story just didn’t really work for me. It’s a case of lots of telling, not a lot of showing and I didn’t buy into the HEA because of it. I did try the se one book as well and it’s basically more of the same.

I didn't expect this story guys. If I'm being honest, I judged it before I even began reading. Every age-gap/insta/BBW Novella I can think of that I have read in the past has read very OTT and it has only worked for me very few times. This story worked for me :) Cute, sexy, entertaining with likable characters and not OTT in the least!! Can't wait to read the rest of the girls! ...more

Lauren Baxter is finally making it out on her own as a plus-size girl and owning her boutique called Not-So-Skinny. It is almost opening day and things are a bit unsettling as her shipment hasn't arrived as of yet. She heads to the local coffee shop and it is instant love when she meets a guy there called Lawrence. He is here on business and attracted to Lauren's curvy body. He has been called up about one of Simon Baxter's buildings, what he doesn't know though is that Lauren is the daughter of ...more

When Lauren decides to take a break from the new business she is opening and enjoy a cup of coffee she didn’t think that accidentally taking the wrong cup of coffee would lead to an enjoyable conversation and an even more enjoyable evening.

Lawrence was happy rather than upset when a beautiful woman tries to abscond with his coffee. He may not know anything about her but the one thing he does know is that he wants to spend more time with her but once they find out the connection between them will

Fireworks is the first installment of the three-book series - Coffee Shop Girls - by L. Moone. I was drawn to this series because they were stories of body-positive, curvey women. You see, I am that demographic and love to read stories that I can relate to. I was not prepared for this new thing called “instalove.” According to, instalove is “when someone who just meets you thinks that you are their soul mate and they want to spend the rest of their lives with you and have kid ...more

A Mix Up on a Name Finds The "One" ❤💥❤💥❤

I'm loving this curvy woman series from L . Moone!!! We briefly meet Lauren in Emily's story "Mistletoe" now we get her full story. Lauren is opening her curvy woman boutique and is stressed with delays. That must be the reason she grabs a coffee meant for Lawrence thinking it's hers. Lawrence noticed Lauren as soon as she walked in the coffee shop wondering how to approach her. There's more going on than just mixed up coffee and Lawrence isn't about to le

Who is Lauren? How does she meet Lawrence? Why do relationships not work out for Lauren? What adversity do we see in this story? I enjoyed reading a book that showed body positivity towards bigger sized women! It was great to see how realistic the struggles could be in the real world show up in the story. Enjoy the HEA!

Loved It!

A fabulously written lust to love story. I loved everything about this story, except the cold, lol. I enjoyed the emotions that were beautifully described. The best part, my favorite part, is always the HEA.

I enjoyed this great escape with Lauren and Lawrence. Their chance meeting, that strong connection and that insta everything. It's a story that will pull you in and keep things just spicy enough!

I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Love the story of Lawrence and Lauren and the insta-love was so worth reading this book in one sitting. I thought it was funny how her father reacted but it made my heart so happy that Lawrence stood up for what he wanted and didnt let her dad bully him into leaving.
