Size Matters - Alison Bliss - Review

The rules of (fake) engagement . . .
Leah Martin has spent her life trying to avoid temptation. But she's sick of low-fat snacks, counting calories, and her hyper-critical mom. Fortunately, her popular new bakery keeps her good and distracted. But there aren't enough ├ęclairs in the world to distract Leah from the hotness that is Sam Cooper - or the fact that he just told her mother that they're engaged . . . which is a big, fat lie.

Sam sometime speaks before he thinks. So what started out as defending Leah's date-ability to her judgmental mother soon turned into having a fiancee! Now the plan is to keep up the fake engagement, stay "just friends," and make Leah's family loathe him enough to just call the whole thing off . But Sam has an insatiable sweet tooth, not only for Leah's decadent desserts but her decadent curves. Her full lips. Her bright green eyes. Yep, things aren't going quite according to plan. Now Sam has to convince Leah that he's for real . . . before their little lie turns into one big, sweet disaster.

I really enjoyed Size Matters.  This story has a great  blend of romance, humor and steam.  The characters and plot were well written.   The banter between not only the hero and heroine, but the side characters is fun and engaging and it's really well paced. 

I loved reading a story with a heroine who I could relate to.  Leah has her insecurities, like so many females, which makes he so much more believable and like-able.   Her insecurities are perpetuated by her mother who criticizes her at every turn about her weight and eating habits.   I could completely understand this character and her insecurities and vulnerabilities.  

Sam on the other hand is a confident, genuine, sweet guy, who's had his share of less than stellar relationships, and thoroughly enjoys his bachelor status.  

Over all this is an enjoyable, entertaining and at time laugh out loud hilarious read and I look forward to reading the future books in this series. 

As the youngest of five girls, Alison Bliss has never turned down a challenge...or been called by the right name. Her writing career may have started out as a dare by one of her sisters, but Alison hasn't put her pen down since.

She grew up on a small island off the Texas Gulf Coast, where most of her childhood vacations consisted of camping or hunting trips to the deer lease. Although she'll always be a Texan at heart, Alison currently resides in the Midwest with her Iowa farm-boy husband and their two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it's no wonder she writes "girl books."

She's an animal lover, a closet video game enthusiast, and believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it's obviously meant to be. Alison's an avid romance reader who enjoys penning the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, "Romance...with a sense of humor."
