WHEN YOU’RE A big girl

Cherri has often wished she were thin and graceful like a ballerina instead of being a six-foot-tall blonde with curves that require serious caution. Surely a charming Irishman like her new boss Colin, with his throaty brogue and to-die-for bod, would never go for someone like Cherri. Unless maybe he’s looking for the exact opposite of a delicate lass?

When Colin hired Cherri to work in his furniture-restoration shop, he had his eyes, first and foremost, on her artistic talents. But now he can’t help but see Cherri for the lush, spirited beauty that she is…and, soon enough, he finds himself mixing business with pleasure. But Cherri turns out to be more vulnerable than she appears. Is she in need of more than Colin can give? Or could it be that a feeling stronger than lust has him thrown for a curve?


I was delighted to receive a copy of Sugar Jamison’s Thrown for a Curve; it has been a while since I have read a chick lit and I have been dying to get back into this genre.  I said yes to this book for starters because the heroine, Charlotte Rudy isn’t your typical average size. She lives with a Ukrainian grandmother whose memory is getting the best of her, pair that with Colin O’Connell, who is best friends with Charlotte’s brother in law, Mike we get a wonderful cast of characters in Sugar Jamison’s second novel in her Perfect Fit series.

Charlotte ‘Cherri’ Rudy has had a crush on her brother in laws best friend for over a year, but it’s not until her birthday party that Colin actually makes a move.  And so begins a story filled with laugh out loud humor on every page with a cast full of colorful characters like “Baba”, Cherri’s aging, unhinged grandmother, Cherri’s best friend Ellis and husband Mike,  who also happen to be her boss’s at the clothing store Size Me Up in small town Durant, New York.  Oh, and we can’t forget Baba’s lovable dog Rufus to round out the cast.

Thrown for a Curve is all about friends becoming more, but Colin is concerned about the age difference while Cherri is concerned about her size.  And these two elements are what keep them apart for most of the book.   They do eventually get married, but their problems don’t stop until one night and one horrible accident.

I would totally recommend reading Thrown for a Curve, I myself have to go back and read the first book in this series, Dangerous Curves Ahead which is best friend Ellis’s story.
