Mollie McGree is on a mission to seduce her best friend, the sexy masseuse Juan-Carlos. But she wants to lose a few extra pounds first. She joins a gym run by self-made millionaire and personal trailer, Conner Bean. Conner thinks Mollie doesn't need to lose any weight, and is perfect the way she is. He plans to seduce the curvy Mollie by giving her his own special training sessions in passion and desire.
Soon Mollie is enjoying a no-holds-barred love affair with the vibrant and skilled Conner. But self-esteem issues on her part, as well as her unresolved feelings for Juan-Carlos, cause her to second guess Conner's motives. Conner will stop at nothing until he claims Mollie's heart for his own.
This is the first book by K.T. Grant I have had the honor to read, although not the first taste of her writing, seeing as I have been a fan of her blog for some time. I enjoyed this short sweet story for exactly what it was, a short and sweet story. I also love that the girl on the cover is at least somewhat accurate in portraying the heroine as a nicely curved women. I hate books that are all about the nice plump women and then she is thin as a twig on the cover.
I like the characters in this story. There are people of all different ethnicities, shapes and sizes, something for everyone. I like that Conner is a sexy sexy man and prefers his women with curve, I say this because I am a women with ample curve and my hubs is a thinner handsome man, so I can relate to Mollie's feelings about her body and her self-esteem issues, both of which my hubs has also helped me overcome.
I like the plot, it's quick to the point, and steamy as hell. Ms. Grant definitely knows her way around a sensual scene and I can't wait to read some of her other more edgy work. I did think that the love between Connor and Mollie felt a bit rushed, they didn't seem to know each other very long before the 'L word' started bouncing around, but as I said this is supposed to be a sweet and short story so...I wasn't expecting a masterpiece of poetry exclaiming the love the characters felt for each other.
Overall, I enjoyed this story, very cute and I can't wait to read more of Ms. Grant's work. She has an excellent voice and I do have to say, I feel cool to be friends with her.
