This was one of her worst works.
Funny how ANYONE from the book was more intersting to me than the main characters! I'd actually prefer the monkey over Bride or Vane!

the storly was weak and ladened with cliche I literally flinched while reading it. The romance is boring, and the "accept me as I am" part was choking me to death! I don't care if the heroine is size XL, I really don't, but for heaven's sake it is not romantic to have a lover who encourages her to gain weight and not help her get healthy!(baby here's a pie eat it all and some more I don't care that you'll get diabetes and maybe die of high cholesterol)NOT romantic to pick on her weight OR encourage her to gain it! baaaah bad experince with this book, very out of character cause the previous ones had a bit of quality in them.

Hope the next oneisn't as bad.

Merce I wasn't under the impression that he was trying to make her gain weight. he only offered her cake once and encouraged her not to starve herself to be something he wasn't ever going to be. A size 18 at her height doesn't necessarily equal morbidly obese.

Sarah A. Well, I'm sure I pointed out in the review that I didn't care at all how much she weighs, what I care about is the fact that she wasn't starving herself she was being watchful of what she eats, which is what any person of any weight should do. It's not right to encourage people or loved ones to eat junk food (cakes /pies...etc). And the sequence of the writing hinted to that act as being (accepting her for who she was) which is wrong in my opinion. If she was self conciouns about her weight, driving her to eat more is not the right way to prove to her that he liked what she looks! Anyway, If you disagree with me or if you felt it wasn't like this then this only confirms that each person's reading experience differs.
