My Review: I am a so-so reader when it comes to rom-com. It really has to grab me and let me tell you this one sure did. It grabbed me by my chubby arms and didn’t let go.
My guilty pleasure is reality shows. It let’s me escape for an hour and not use my brain. I love the old school Real World.
Cindy is a fluffier woman and has confidence galore. She loves fashion especially shoes. After graduating Parsons in NYC she is flying to home to LA and meets her Prince Charming. They part at LAX and she thinks she’ll never see him again. That is until she agrees to star on a reality show for her stepmom. Read the book to find out when and where sparks fly.
Being a much fluffier woman than most (and proud of who I am thank you very much) I love books that feature strong, happy fluffy women.
Good job Julie Murphy.
From Goodreads: After having just graduated with a degree in shoe design, and trying to get her feet on the ground, Cindy is working for her stepmother, who happens to be the executive producer of America’s favorite reality show, Before Midnight. When a spot on the show needs filling ASAP, Cindy volunteers, hoping it might help jump-start her fashion career, or at least give her something to do while her peers land jobs in the world of high fashion.
Turns out being the only plus size woman on a reality dating competition makes a splash, and soon Cindy becomes a body positivity icon for women everywhere. What she doesn’t expect? That she may just find inspiration-and love-in the process. Ultimately, Cindy learns that if the shoe doesn’t fit, maybe it’s time to design your own.
