“…although it didn’t rock my world, or really offer anything new, that didn’t stop me from enjoying it…” ~ Under the Covers
Shelly MacIsaac has reached 28 with out ever having being kissed and she has lost all hope that she ever will, just like she has given up on ever losing weight. But, maybe she will give it one last chance, the new years resolution she makes with the wine girls is to get into shape, but it is more than Shelly’s body that needs shaping up, it is her self esteem as well. Christian has been working with Shelly for years and has been lusting after her for what seems like forever and he is determined this year to make the shy Shelly notice. However, he didn’t expect was that his childhood friend Lance would also feel the same way…
I have been looking forward to this installment in the Second Chances series, not only do I love a book with a BBW, but it also has a menage romance, win win! And although it didn’t rock my world, or really offer anything new, that didn’t stop me from enjoying it, the characters were likable and the sexercise they engaged in what was hot.
Shelly has massive self esteem issues and I loved seeing her overcome these as the book progressed and she became a more confident woman. A more confident woman with two sexy, but very different men falling in love with her, Lance and Christian were perfect, too perfect I imagine, but they were fantastic book candy and I loved how supportive and encouraging they were with Shelly. I also loved their lovin’ the sex between them was hot (all stricyly concentrated on Shelly, there was no m/m) and clearly the best way to burn off a few calories!
I had fun reading this, it was a fairly short and quick read and although it isn’t something that is truely memorable it was enjoyable and I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
