Big Girl Panties
July 9th, 2013
I don’t know what to make of Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich; on the one hand I loved a story about a bigger girl-it reminded me of Jennifer Cruise’s Bet Me-but on the other hand the characters, Logan Montgomery and Holly Brennan were not made from the same cloth as Minerva Dobbs and Calvin Morrisey.
Hmm..I’m thinking I have to read Bet Me once again.
So Logan and Holly meet on an airplane, bumped from first class they both have to make do in coach; and that means for Holly that she needs two seats. Unfortunately for Logan, he gets to be her neighbor for the next eight hours. Logan is a personal trainer to the stars and instantly see’s a new client when he spots Holly, and of course Holly has just the right amount of low self-esteem that she jumps at the chance.
I have to say though the sex was pretty good; if Bet Me had even an ounce of that kind of intimacy I would reread that sucker until the book broke.
The secondary characters; Chase and Amanda Walker were more interesting than Logan and Holly ever were. And I’m saying that in a nice way, Logan and Holly could have been great; but Holly was way too insecure even after she lost weight and up until the very last page; and Logan was your typical shallow personal trainer that you would expect. Yes, he matured a little towards the end of the story; but he still never really defended Holly to society, and that is something I can never forgive.
So, in conclusion while reading Big Girl Panties was entertaining, with Holly’s sense of humor and Chase and Amanda’s sex-capades; I don’t think it would be a keeper.
