review 1: It's a romance novel with a heroine who is fat/chubby, not just curvier than willowy. Finally.*And it's also very well written, and hot, and I genuinely liked pretty much all of the characters and as much as I think I was supposed to like about their interactions. I'm really stingy with that fifth star, but I'd recommend this book to just about anyone I know who reads romance novels.*The one other example I can think of is a historical, and although I do like the effect of mentioning the heroine's unfashionable dimensions and then just ignoring them, because her size isn't central to the plot or her life, it's nice to see a contemporary heroine without a small waist. (And it's still not presented overwhelmingly, but there's a bit about her insecurit... moreies.)
review 2: Ah, to be cherished like this. Devi was one lucky girl to have caught the eye of not only Jace but his brother Marcus as well. And Jace sure does know how to treat a lady. Marcus has some rough edges, and I was so glad that Devi saw through the roughness and was able to break through his armor every once in a while. But how awful for Jace and Marcus to have experienced what they went through!! My heart broke for them when I learned what made them how they are. I knew something bad happened, but I didn't know it would go that direction. This was quite sexy, and it sort of started right off the bat. Good for Devi for jumping at the opportunity -- I'd have killed my sister, lol. I'm glad Jace sort of insisted on more than one night. I loved how he'd slip in extra words that just subtly changed what was agreed to. And I loved how they all stood up to her sisters. One thing that seemed sort of odd, like it could have been left out of the story, was Leena's relationship with Rahul. Unless maybe that'll be in a future book? And Rana seemed to need some help as well. I'd definitely read another one from this author, though. less
