 …this was a hilarious and sexy short story... ~ Under the Covers

Judy knew coming on a boating holiday with her brother and his wife was a mistake as soon as Steven, her brother’s best friend, stepped on board. He has always teased her, killing the secret love she had for him since she was teenager. But something has changed, was Steven actually flirting with her? This was my second read by Charlotte Stein, my first being Sheltered and I am pleased to say that I enjoyed this book just as much. 

Curve Ball immediately drew me in with the POV of Judy, she was my kind of heroine, curvy and teensy bit insecure about it and reading through her crazy-paranoid, yet hilarious POV made me laugh and yet I could also identify with her. The romance itself was kind of sweet as Steven tries to flirt with the clueless Judy, but the sexy times between them were pretty damn hot. It was a shame we didn’t see anything from Steven’s POV as although we got to know Judy very well I didn’t feel we got to know Steven at all, apart from the very skewed perspective of Judy. But this was a hilarious and sexy short story and I am now definitely a fan of Charlotte Stein.
