Foley Sanders always thought he will be contented with his life full of cars and his family until an encounter with the statuesque redhead Cynthia Nichols. Now he can’t stop thinking about her, doesn’t matter if she has sworn off men and refuses to give him a date.
Cynthia knows she has everything in her life – well-planned business, her numeorus investments. She doesn’t need a man to harp on her about her size. But gentleman beneath the all muscled tattooed mechanic is beginning to breach the walls she has erected.
There is only one word to describe this high octane book – hardcore. The plot line is obviously built around the romantic theme, but touch on issues like plus sized women is something that brings a more humane and vulnerable element to the book. The moral implications of beauty beyond perfection is definitely something that I applaud very much.
The characters are definitely tall physically as well as by their personalities that has been conceptualised. They make a very easy bond withh the readers as well as with the plot, which is another plus point in my eyes. The chemistry between tge lead characters is outsanding and leaps through the pages and makes you involved enough to keep coming back for more.
The title and the cover image is quite simple and has much more in common with the characterization of Foley, than something more metaphorical. The smooth style of narration definitely helps in this book; there was not one moment where I felt that the story has escaped my grasp.
My opinion: Definitely one of those hot books that you do not want to leave behind.
My rating: 4 out of 5
