Playing For Keeps
on Feb. 14, 2013
I got this as a free ebook, and I haven't looked back since. Now I religiously google Ms. Mathewson, avidly waiting for her new releases. It hits all the right spot - and the next book, Perfection, is even better. The characters are interesting, yet relatable. Yes, even the wonderful Bradford men come across as down-to-earth despite their seeming perfection. I mean, come on, if a guy's worst traits are his obsession with food and occasional cluelessness, wouldn't he be considered perfect?
I never wanted this book to end! It's hard to find books about plus-sized women that are hot but not trashy.
The Virgin Sex Queen
on March 06, 2013
This is a great book - hot and heartwarming at the same time. It makes you want to move to the town these crazy in love couples are living in. There must be something in the water in that place! I can't wait for Ms. Verdenius' next book.
Ms. Verdenius has created a world that I'd love to live in. It's habitated by honest, hardworking, salt-of-the-earth types who look out for each other (sometimes a little too much). The heroine is shy, reserved, insecure, but is spunky when she needs to be. The hero is a bit of a knuckle-dragger, but in a hot, non-jerky way. I wish more authors would write novels about larger-than-normal, regular heroines that are longer than 100 pages and are not more sex than plot. This is a must-buy!
