Real Women

I don’t usually do this, but I picked this book up because of its title.
Here’s the blurb for Real Women Don’t Wear Size 2 by Kelley St. John:

When the big 3-0 comes and goes, Clarise Robinson finds she isn't all that disheartened with the curves life has thrown her way. As a matter of fact, she's learned to work with those curves, literally. As head of the women's department at Eubanks Elegant Apparel, she's known for her style, her sass and her abundant curves. Yes, the female once deemed "cautious" by her college buddies has unquestionably left that wallflower image behind to grasp a new label: "confidently curvy."

But even though she's found her niche in the world, Clarise knows the truth. Deep down, she's still holding back, still playing it safe, particularly when it comes to her best friend, boss and darkest fantasy, Ethan Eubanks. And now, it's time to throw caution to the wind, to take off the gloves, and perhaps, everything else…

Clarise Robinson, has a career that she loves. She has a loving family and great friends. But what she wants, not what, but who she fantasizes about is her boss (and friend) Ethan. But she’s not Ethan’s type, she has curves, and the Robinson Treasures. And she hopes that the trip to Tampa will change that…maybe Ethan will see her as more than just a coffee buddy.

This book is sizzling hot! I had to stop a few times to fan myself. Wow! Clarise and Ethan’s chemistry is amazing. The transition between friends to lovers was well done, in my opinion.

My one and only complaint was that there was too much innermost thoughts by both the hero and heroine. I mostly skimmed through those parts.
