The Big, Not-So-Small, Curvy Girl, BBW Romance, Dating Agency - Ava Catori

Source: Review copy from Author

 

Becky Holgate's lost her focus. It's complicated...she didn't mean to fall in love with another woman's guy. How could she be a matchmaker for other people if all she could think about was her own heart? Determined to ignore her growing infatuation, she set her sight on building her career. Only Reed Amwell was making it hard to concentrate; every encounter left her breathless.

Reed didn't mean to fall for the curvy girl, but she was carefree, silly, and fresh. Her soft curves and playful heart had him questioning his current relationship. Could he be with the wrong girl? He needed to figure it out fast, because his wedding day was getting closer by the minute. 

With a laugh-out-loud best friend, an insane cat, and a business to run, Becky Holgate didn't have time for guys like Reed Amwell...until time was running out.

Hmmm, so I've just finished The Big, Not-So-Small, Curvy Girls, BBW Romance, Dating Agency. I chose this book because let's face it my size 10 Jeans wearing days are long gone, so I was obviously intrigued because basically I am probably the target area for this book.

I'm just going to show you my notes I made throughout the book as my review. 

 

  • I Don't like the way she's basically saying if you're fat then no one takes any notice of you. In my opinion and as a large lass myself, it's like she's saying fat people are not real humans sorta thing, like being large is a disability or something to be ashamed of.

 

 • It doesn't flow very well and is quite flat with minor descriptions. Also, during conversations it's hard to decipher who's speaking as sometimes it all becomes one with no detail to what's going on in between. 

 

 • Becky's not a very good friend. She's not very supportive of her friend Sam at all and goes on that she doesn't trust her. I wouldn't want Becky as my friend at all. She's always quick to be very negative to Sam regardless of what the situation is. What a bitch.

 

 • Her naughty bits! Is a child writing this?

 

 • He wants to see me. He wanted to see me. If I have to read these sentences again any time soon, I may scoop out my eyeballs with red-hot teaspoons.

 

 • Same phrases or near identical phrases used constantly throughout the book makes it very repetitive 

 

• There's never any description at all about things that are going on, except for the sex scenes.

 

 • It's not OK to go meet someone who's engaged to be married. It's not OK at all.

 

 • Spelling mistakes and misplaced words

 

 • No description to Becky's size is hard to read because a book about a bigger lady without any description especially when the story is based on her weight needs a description. One minute she's really fat, the next minute she's carrying extra weight, then the next minute only a few extra pounds

 

 • Erm.... Did that just end? What was the point of the story!? 

 

As you can see from my notes, I was far from impressed. The ending was the final straw for me, it was that made me think well if the writer can't be bothered to put the needed details into her book and a proper ending, then I can't be bothered writing a proper review. I know that's harsh, and I surprised myself thinking it, but my pet hate in books is bad endings. It really grates on me. I'm not giving this book a second chance as I promised I will do on every book I read, I just couldn't read it again.
