When life gives you curves, you gotta learn how to rock them.

Successful businesswoman Avery Barrows likes her dips and curves, but she’s sick of the haters telling her that she should be ashamed of her body instead of embracing it. Determined to send them a big f*** you, Avery resolves to cut loose during a girls’ trip, hightailing her quick-mouthed, plus-sized self to New Orleans. So, what’s a smart woman with a little extra gotta do to get laid in this town?

Not much if you ask Declan McGinn, the lead singer of BlackSmith. Tall, dark, and tattooed, with a body made for sin, Declan prefers his women as curvy as his guitars. Avery’s sharp tongue and keen mind makes him want her even more.

As they burn up the sheets, Avery and Declan realize this is no one-night (or even one-week) stand. But for all of her bluster, Avery isn’t sure she can handle any more rejection. Besides, Declan has demons of his own. Now Avery has a choice to make: play it safe, or place her trust in the hands of a man who’s as tempting as the devil himself.


Anything set in New Orleans usually grabs my attention and this book is no exception. Hot sexy and fun Avery Barrows goes to NOLA with a friend just to have fun but it turns into much more.  Not only is this a hot sexy romance its also a book about being yourself and not hiding who you are. People are cruel, and jealous and petty, you do you, don't mold yourself into someone else for anyone, not for work, not for a relationship not for anything. If you feel good about you it will show. Your weight, you tattoos etc don't matter own your self esteem and show the world how truly amazing you are.

I love Avery's wit and crass quick come-backs, I love that she had a great right hook and that she loves her curves. Declan is just sex on a stick and I love that he loves Avery for everything she is and more. Definitely recommend this romance from this new author and hope she keeps up the writing!
