Synopsis:

My name is JADE BALLARD, and this is the story of how a freak accident with a cookie changed the life of a semi-reformed people-pleaser (that’s me!).
After a disastrous marital near-miss Jade Ballard retreats to San Antonio, cutting herself off from the world in general and more specifically her family’s country club lifestyle, which she no longer wants any part of. She takes comfort in food and the safety of an internet love affair. 

Rowdy Yates is a semi-reformed womanizer who’s leery of long-term entanglements. Until Jade, he never seriously considered anything beyond a “Wife-For-A-Night.”

After months of flirting on the internet the couple meets, only to discover they already know one another. Rowdy has always mistaken Jade’s shy reserved nature for snobbishness, and Jade has always viewed the woman-loving Rowdy as a Redneck Casanova. But the seven months they spent getting to know one another formed an attraction neither can fight.

Review:

Jade has had it a bit tough after her ex fiance left her at the alter for the stripper. Its been a while since then and the only thing that seems to be looking up is the guy shes been talking to Robbie online. They are going to finally meet after several months on her birthday. Little did she know was that she already knew him and his womanizing ways. But on the computer he seems like a genuinely great guy. If that wasn't bad enough her mother requests to see her at a county club for her birthday and the manages to run into her ex. To get him and her mother off her back she goes on to say shes already in a relationship and engaged. Now she just has to convince Robbie/Rowdy to help convince her family that.

I loved this book. I love when I get my hands on a less than perfect plus sized women as the main character. Personally I find myself more connected to characters like that, being a plus sized gal myself. I love how real she was and I think that many people can relate to her with so much of her struggles. This book isnt' for everyone I feel like there's a scene in the book that people should be open minded about I feel like there will be someone to complain about it. If you read the book you might understand what I mean. I loved watching Jade gain the confidence she needed as the story progressed. I loved that Jade and Rowdy was great for eachother being able to face and give perspective to each other in the daily problems that they were going through. Overall a great book I really enjoyed it.
